Getting proper nutrients is very important for pregnant women. But because of various reasons, they can not get all the nutrients they need from the food they eat. Supplements then come in very handy in order to keep a healthy pregnancy. Prenexa is a highly recommended prenatal vitamin that is available only by prescription. There are many health benefits of Prenexa. It contains lots of vitamins, minerals and fatty acids. Prenexa also contains folic acid which plays a vital role in the prevention of certain birth defects like spina bifida. Iron and calcium are also present in Prenexa. However, these two can cause constipation which is a common dilemma of pregnant women. To help alleviate constipation, they have added calcium docusate to Prenexa. Calcium docusate is a stool softener.
Improved brain function, improved vision and lower risk of premature birth are just some of the health benefits of Prenexa. This is made possible by the omega-3 fatty acids, including DHA present in Prenexa. The source of DHA in Prenexa is plant-based. Although DHA can come mainly from fish, the makers of Prenexa opted to use a plant-based source in order to avoid mercury toxicity that can come from fish.
Taken once every day, Prenexa is an easy to swallow prenatal vitamin because it comes in soft gel form. Although Prenexa can be taken on an empty stomach, it is better to take it even with little food intake just so to avoid stomach upset. Occasional missed doses may not cause serious trouble but to maximize the health benefits of Prenexa, it is best if you take it on a regular basis and if possible, try to follow a certain routine.
