Expiration Date:Expiration Date
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

- For Pregnant and Lactating Women
- Dietary Supplement
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!

Good product, just start carefully

It's a great product for those with MTHFR mutation and highly trusted, the problem is that you have to be careful of any reactions. Start one for seven days, then two for seven days, then three from there (which is the rec dose). I have a range of digestive problems, mainly histamine intolerance and I had reactions to these and it took a Natropath/integrative practitioner to point out it was causing my symptoms (racing heart, shortness of breath, anxiety, insomnia) - thankfully I stopped taking them and even just missing the evening one, I slept so much better and woke up feeling rested, instead of agitated. So it wears off really quickly. I'd highly recommend speaking to a Natropath versed in MTHFR (or whatever issues you have) to get a good plan for you, it'll make all the difference.

This is the first product I tried and decided to stayed with until the end of my pregnancy. Can not compare with other prenatals, simply because have not tried others. I like it, because most of the elements in this product are in the chemical forms which are easier absorbable by the body (or at least are believed to be so), e.g. folate - probably the most important supplement for the pregnancy is in the form which is much better taken up by the body than the classical folic acid. I have not experienced any adverse effect while taking it. In contrast to some other customers, I find it to be a good thing the need to take 3 capsules to reach recommended daily dose - all prenatals contain lots of iron, which is known to have adverse effects in larger doses. Splitting the daily dose to three makes it possible to take 3 smaller doses through the day (breakfast, lunch, and dinner in my case) and minimize the chances of intolerance. In my opinion, body also absorbs the vitamins better this way. I'm happy with the product, will recommend it to my friends.
