  • Basic Prenatal by Thorne Research was designed to be a complete vitamin and mineral supplement for pregnant and lactating women. In this multi vitamin and mineral supplement‚ you’ll find the purest and highest quality ingredients available on the market in their most well-absorbed and highly bioavailable forms (so as to reduce the risk of stomach upset).

    One of the most crucial vitamins for a healthy pregnancy is folate. Insufficient intake of folic acid during pregnancy may negatively affect fetal development. Fortunately‚ each vegetarian capsule of Basic Prenatal provides the active forms of folic acid (L-5-methyl-tetrahydrofolate and folinic acid) in a balanced 1:1 ratio to help ensure that your body absorbs as much of this crucial vitamin as possible. Iron is also important for pregnant women‚ but it can sometimes cause constipation; therefore‚ this supplement contains iron in the form of picolinate‚ which is easier on the stomach.

    Pregnancy and Nutrition

    During pregnancy‚ a woman needs more calories and nutrients to support both herself and a growing baby. Even after pregnancy‚ her nutritional and caloric needs remain elevated if she breastfeeds. However‚ some women have trouble getting the appropriate amount of calories and nutrition from food‚ especially during their first trimester of pregnancy when many suffer from morning sickness. The good news is that nutrients like vitamin B6‚ vitamin C‚ and vitamin K may help alleviate those uncomfortable symptoms.

    The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) recommend that all women of childbearing age supplement with folic acid. This is because many pregnancies are not discovered until well into the first trimester‚ and this time is crucial for neural development of the fetus. Even though folate is essential‚ it is possible to have too much of a good thing. Experts recommend that your folate intake not exceed 250 percent of the government’s recommended daily value‚ which equates to about 1‚000 micrograms.

    The Thorne Research Difference

    As you may expect from Thorne Research‚ you will not find any of the additives or coatings that you might find in mainstream prenatal vitamin and mineral supplements. Basic Prenatal is formulated with only the purest and most bioavailable nutrients.

    Many women have trouble digesting the high-potency prenatal vitamin and mineral supplements that are often needed during pregnancy‚ especially during the nausea that often occurs in the first trimester. It is for this reason that Thorne Research does not include high volumes of the vitamins and minerals that are more likely to be harsh on the stomach. Basic Prenatal provides the most bioavailable forms of vitamins B6‚ B2‚ folinic acid‚ L-5MTHF‚ adenosylcobalamin and B12—this means that you’ll get more benefit out of a smaller dose than you would with many other multivitamin and mineral supplements.

    Thorne Research strives to provide pure‚ high-quality supplements to people looking to enhance their health and well-being. Its products are commonly used in prestigious research studies‚ and are recommended by many doctors and health care practitioners. The company always goes the extra mile to ensure that Thorne Research dietary supplements are safe and effective for immune-compromised‚ allergic‚ and chemically sensitive patients.

    Too much Iron for me!

    I realized that Basic Prenatal by Thorne Research may be too much iron for me. It's at the top of the daily limit for pregnant women so I am not going to take it.

    Excellent Vitamins!

    When I was trying to get pregnant my nutritionist recommended Basic Prenatal by Thorne Research. After having the baby I still use these vitamins. There are no coatings on the pills so they are easy on the stomach.

    Quality prenatal

    Ive been using these a few months and they seem to work fine. Only drawback is having to take 3 vitamins as one serving. Like that it doesnt have magnesium stearate which Ive been told is not healthy for your stomach as it builds up in the lining and can cause health problems.


    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Seems to be doing a good job

    Basic Prenatal by Thorne Research was recommended to me by a friend who is a nutritionist. I have been taking Basic Prenatal 3 times a day for about 3 weeks now and I feel good. I am a little bit sensitive when it comes to taking pills so I make sure that I take them with a full meal.


    Pros


    Cons

      Nausea.

    Non-Stomach Upsetting

    I have had problems in the past with multi-vitamins upsetting my stomach. When I wanted to start taking a prenatal my naturopath recommended Baisc Prenatal by Thorne Research and they have never upset my stomach. Also it has enough folate that I do not have to use the prescription my doctor gave me. I am extremely happy with these.


    Pros

      Non-stomach upsetting. High level of folate.

    Cons


    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Severe Nausea!

    Basic Prenatal by Thorne caused a tremendous amount of nausea for me every time I took it regardless of whether it was on a full or empty stomach. I had my mother try it as well and it caused significant nausea for her. I am not sure if it is due to the high iron content or what exactly it is about this vitamin that caused the problem but I ended up switching to Flintstones vitamins for kids and have had no problems since. I will not be purchasing this vitamin again and do not recommend it for this reason.


    Pros


    Cons

      causes severe nausea
