FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Oct. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Women have their own nutritional needs, especially those who are pregnant, nursing or trying to conceive. Because proper nutrition is vital to development of babies, mothers need a range of vitamins and nutrients that exceeds the standard.
A new, science-based supplement, Prenatal Advantage from Life Extension®, provides the latest recommended dosages of vitamins and minerals, plus nutrients like choline, DHA omega-3, lutein and zeaxanthin, for both mom and baby.
"Choline, DHA and critical minerals are three essential ingredients this prenatal formula provides for brain and nerve development," said Michael Smith, M.D., director of education for Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Life Extension.
Studies show that consuming DHA omega-3 during pregnancy and nursing promotes healthy brain and eye development in babies. And while most DHA is derived from fish oil, the vegetarian DHA in Prenatal Advantage is derived from marine algae, which helps reduce fishy burps.
In addition to 100% of the daily value of vitamins A, B, C, D3 and K, Prenatal Advantage also delivers 100% of the daily value of minerals such as iron, zinc, copper, potassium and more. This formula also contains lutein and zeaxanthin to support healthy prenatal eye development, and 50% of the daily value of choline to promote healthy brain and nervous system development.
Prenatal Advantage uses the most bioavailable forms of nutrients such as 5-MTHF folate and methylcobalamin vitamin B12 to help deliver optimal health benefits. It also includes eight nutrients that One A Day® Prenatal 1 does not, including choline, selenium, manganese, chromium, molybdenum and more.
Moms can get added support for their babies' development with this optimal combination of nutrients, especially for their brains and nervous systems with the higher than average daily dose of choline.
