Olympian Lab's Expecting Mother Multivitamin
Pregnancy is a wonderful time in a woman's life, full of new experiences and possibilities. During pregnancy, a woman's nutritional needs both increase and change. Olympian Labs Expecting Mother provides optimal nutritional support in a new powerful, easy to take formula.
A serious concern for an expectant mother has during pregnancy is protection of her child from abnormal development. Neural Tube Defects are defects of the spinal column which cause conditions such as Spina Bifida and may lead to paralysis of the legs. Research suggests that high doses of folic acid are the best defense against neural tube defects. The dosage in Olympian Labs Expecting Mother are significantly higher than those found in leading competitive formulas.
In one clinical study performed in London, it was shown that while the recommended level of folic acid fortification in the US would produce a 20% reduction in NTDs, maximum protection was achieved at 5 mg of folic acid. At 5 mg of folic acid, incidence of NTDs was reduced by 85%. Olympian Labs believes that it is vitally important for a woman to receive the best protection possible for her child against neural tube defects, so we have chosen to go with the 5 mg dose.
In addition, Expecting Mother has been synergistically balanced. Vitamin D3 supports fetal growth and bone calcification, while Vitamin C is needed for healthy cell development. A powerful blend of B vitamins supports production of energy and the development of the nervous system. Lutein, a precursor to Vitamin A, helps with neural development and healthy eyes. Together these essential nutrients combine to meet or exceed a woman's daily nutritional needs.
Expecting Woman uses the highest quality of chelated ver possible for superior absorption. Chelated iron supports blood cells and helps prevent anemia during pregnancy and chelated zinc may help a woman resist infections during pregnancy. Chelated copper supports the nervous system, health bones, and the synthesis of proteins. Iodine, provided from kelp, helps to regulate growth, development and energy. These minerals are backed by magnesium which supports the function of nerves and muscles.
Calcium is an element needed for proper fetal development, but taking it with iron can cause problematic constipation in pregnant women. Because of this, Olympian Labs has chosen not to include it in Expecting Mother. Instead calcium is available through several Olympian Labs calcium formulations, including our odorless tasteless calcium powder, Cal-EZ which mixes into any liquid or soft food.
Olympian Labs is proud to help mothers achieve optimal levels of nutritional support. We believe that Expecting Mother provides the highest level of protection from neural tube defects and helps mothers to lessen the risks of these conditions. We think that women who try our Expecting Mother Premium Multivitamin will find it convenient and effective. Olympian Labs pledges to produce only the highest quality products to support a healthier life.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I like these vitamins. They don't irritate my stomach and they have lots of iron and a good source of b12. I like that its methyl b12 and not the cheaper less absorbable cyanocobalmin. Large dose of folic acid too.
This has done a great job and is everything it promised to be. I don't love the taste initially but don't burp it or get sick from it.
