Prenatal Pro Essential Packets
Specially formulated prenatal vitamin for a healthy pregnancy
We recommend starting Prenatal Pro Essential Packets prior to trying to get pregnant to help ensure optimized nutrient levels before conception. Two packets should be consumed daily throughout the entire pregnancy and post-pregnancy (particularly if lactating) to nourish the mother and to deliver needed nutrition to the baby, too.
Inside the womb, a developing baby’s entire food supply comes from its mother. In order to give her baby the best start in life, it is essential for a woman to have optimal nutrition herself, preferably in advance of becoming pregnant. The foundation of a healthy pregnancy is a nutrient-dense diet based on whole, unprocessed
foods. However, even a well-formulated diet may have shortfalls of nutrients required for healthy fetal development, which may have long-term repercussions in childhood and beyond. Prenatal Pro Essential Packets is a multivitamin and mineral formula designed to provide mom and baby with appropriate amounts of key nutrients during this critical time.
Each packet contains:
• 2 – Prenatal Pro™ capsules
Prenatal Pro™ provides optimal supplementation for pregnant women, lactating women, and women wishing to become pregnant. The earlier that supplementation begins, the better, because women need adequate nutrient stores to meet the greater nutrient demands for a growing baby. This prenatal multivitamin provides folate in the bioidentical, bioactive form, 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (L-5MTHF) in place of synthetic folic acid. L-5MTHF is the active circulating form of folate found in the body and one of the several forms found in food.
The minerals contained in Prenatal Pro™ provide superior absorption compared to those found in standard prenatal vitamins.* These minerals are dosed at levels to help achieve optimal results, such as:
- Calcium and magnesium for healthy bone formation*
- Ferrochel® chelated iron in the most bioavailable form on the market, and it is non-constipating*
- Signiﬁcant levels of chelated zinc may help reduce the risk of preterm babies*
- Iodine helps support healthy brain development*
• 1 – OsteoForce™ tablet
OsteoForce™ is a unique blend of highly absorbable vitamins and minerals formulated to support healthy bones.* OsteoForce™ features calcium and magnesium that are bound to malic acid for enhanced absorption, along with chelated forms of zinc, copper, and manganese for superior bioavailability.*
• 1 – OmegAvail™ Ultra softgel
OmegAvail™ Ultra is a high-potency omega-3 product providing 600 mg of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and 400 mg of dexahexapentaeonic acid (DHA) in each 2-softgel serving. This product may be an ideal choice when a more aggressive application of omega-3 is desired.
B Vitamins: required for an array of critical biochemical reactions that support healthy overall metabolism and
Folate: required for DNA synthesis, healthy cellular growth and repair, and for proper development of the fetal neural tube, a structure that becomes the brain and spinal cord. The folate in Prenatal Pro™ is a form of methylated folate proven to raise plasma folate levels and bypass some of the obstacles associated with
synthetic folic acid, such as a genetic issues that can impair the conversion of folic acid to active folate.*
Iodine & Selenium: support healthy thyroid function and synthesis of thyroid hormones. Proper thyroid hormone levels in an expectant mother help support healthy brain and neurological development in her baby.*
Choline: a vitamin-like nutrient essential for proper brain development and the structure of all cell membranes*
Vitamin E isomers: provided as the tocotrienol fractions of the vitamin E complex, which are more potent than the commonly used tocopherols and have different biological effects. Tocopherols are more easily obtained from a typical diet than are tocotrienols; the tocotrienols in Prenatal Pro™ augment the more readily available dietary tocopherols.
Vitamin C: provided at a level higher than the current US RDA, as the RDA was not intended to support optimum health, but rather, to prevent overt deficiency. The modern diet is generally low in vitamin C, an important antioxidant nutrient that’s also essential for a healthy immune system, collagen synthesis, and dietary iron absorption.*
Chelated Minerals: The zinc, copper, manganese, molybdenum, chromium and iron in this product are provided as highly bioavailable chelates. Chelated minerals are easily absorbed and highly bioavailable because they bypass common obstacles to effective absorption, such as low stomach acid or compromised digestive function. The iron in this product will not result in constipation or GI upset, as is experienced with many conventional iron supplements. Chromium: a trace mineral that supports proper regulation of mom’s blood sugar and insulin levels, critical for a healthy pregnancy*
• Formulated to augment a healthy diet and make up for common nutrient shortfalls

• Features natural folate (not synthetic folic acid)
• Select minerals in chelated form for superior absorption and bioavailability
• Provides iodine and selenium for healthy thyroid function and fetal brain development
• Provides vitamin E isomers as tocotrienols – more powerful antioxidants than the tocopherols in most prenatal vitamins
Recommended Use: Take four capsules per day with meals, or as directed by your health care practitioner.
