Pregnancy is a critical time for optimizing health and nutrition, both for the mother and her baby. Overall nutritional and caloric needs are greatly increased by pregnancy and breastfeeding.* However, especially during the first trimester because of nausea, women are not always able to consume the desired number of calories or variety of nutrients. Several nutrients in a good prenatal multiple vitamin have been found to benefit pregnant women who suffer from "morning sickness," including vitamin C, vitamin B6, and vitamin K.*
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend folic acid supplementation for all women of childbearing age because the biggest need is during the first trimester, when a woman may not even be aware she is pregnant. A woman who consumes a healthful diet with adequate folate may reduce her risk of having a child with a birth defect of the brain or spinal cord. Folate intake should not exceed 250 percent of the government's recommended daily value (1,000 mcg).
The need for other nutrients, such as iron, increases dramatically during pregnancy and is not always compensated for by diet alone.*
Multiple vitamin supplementation – during the year before becoming pregnant, during pregnancy, and while breastfeeding – can help produce a healthy baby and benefit the mother through labor, delivery, breastfeeding, and postpartum.*
Basic Prenatal is a comprehensive supplement formulated with the special needs of pregnancy in mind. Manufactured with none of the additives and coatings usually found in mainstream prenatal tablets, Basic Prenatal includes only the most bioavailable nutrients.
High-potency multiple vitamins may sometimes be difficult for a woman to "stomach," particularly during the first trimester of pregnancy. Therefore, Thorne Research does not include large amounts of the nutrients commonly known to cause stomach upset. Instead, these nutrients are included in their most active or absorbable forms for superior utilization.* Among these are the active forms of several of the B vitamins – pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (vitamin B6), riboflavin 5'-phosphate (vitamin B2), L-5-MTHF (active form of folate), and methylcobalamin (vitamin B12).
Calcium in large doses may also cause stomach upset. Therefore, a moderate dose in the highly absorbable citrate-malate form is used. Additional calcium and magnesium can be supplemented, especially in the final trimester.
Basic Prenatal may also be taken by nursing mothers.
Take 3 capsules daily or as recommended by your health-care practitioner.

This company has a reputation for making high-quality supplements. I am pregnant and have had a previous miscarriage, possibly due to a clotting disorder I never knew I had (MTHFR) having to do with my inability to absorb Folic Acid from food; so my Naturopath recommended a supplement that contained Folate as 5-MTHF. Thorne was the only company I could find that sold this form of Folate, and I was so pleased to find they include it in their Prenatal. I am entering my Third Trimester and the baby appears to be as healthy as can be. Thank you!

This is the best prenatal vitamin that has the methylated form of folate as opposed to folic acid. I have spoken to both a doctor and naturopath and they give this a big thumbs up. Very good price for a great multi. I do find though that if I don't take it with a meal I get a bit queasy.

They are great, I take 3 a day and I do not bounce back on them with a bad taste, and so I had when taking other prenatal vitamins, so I could not take any vitamins. Finally, with Thorne vitamins, I do not have this problem. I take them for about 3 weeks and it seems to me that I also have more energy. I will definitely buy again. In my opinion, they are the best.

I was originally taking Elevit but it was doing strange things to my stomach. So my acupuncturist suggested I try this brand instead. She said it would be a lot gentler on my stomach. And she was so right. I feel great in this product. I suppose the only downfall is having to take three tablets. But that is a small price to pay.
