If you're expecting -- or hoping to be, or if your hopes have already been realized -- it's important to take in enough nutrients of the right kind to nurture you both. "Prenatal," a professional multi-vitamin/mineral supplement from Douglas Laboratories, is designed for both pregnant and breastfeeding women, as well as for those planning to become pregnant. It contains ample amounts of folate and vitamin B12 in highly bioavailable forms to help reduce the risk of neural tube defects, and a large range of other vitamins and minerals to help maintain your good health and promote your baby's normal growth and development.
The carotenoid Lutein is also included in this formula, to protect cells from oxidative damage and for the baby's visual and neural development.
