Product Description



Prenatal Complete with DHA from Ortho Molecular is a comprehensive, hypoallergenic, prenatal multivitamin and mineral blend which provides high-quality nutrients plus high concentration DHA to support each phase of pregnancy.

  • 20 Essential Prenatal Nutrients
  • Provides high quality nutrients and high concentration DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) to support each phase of pregnancy - Preconception, Prenatal, and Postnatal phases.
  • Contains folate as Quatrefolic - 100% 5-MTHF, the biologically active form of folic acid, to meet increased requirements for fetal nervous system development, as well as USP B vitamins.
  • Albion TRAACS chelated mineral complexes and Ferrochel iron are included for enhanced mineral bioavailability and gentleness on the stomach.

Folate is needed very early in pregnancy and it is recommended that women take folate when planning to become pregnant, since folate needs are high around the time of conception. Adequate folate nutrition before and during pregnancy supports healthy development of the fetal brain and spinal column, and ensures an overall healthy pregnancy outcome. Prenatal Complete with DHA provides 5-MTHF as 100% Quatrefolic, a more stable, soluble, and bioavailable form than calcium salt forms of 5-MTHF. Supplementing with bioactive 5-MTHF allows for the bypassing of steps in folate metabolism, which may be especially beneficial in those with digestive concerns or genetic variations in folate metabolism.

Intake of omega-3 fatty acids is critically important during pregnancy for the development of the fetal brain and retina. During mid-to-late gestation, DHA plays an important role in the development of cognitive and motor functions. An ample supply of DHA is beneficial the brain and eye development of baby, however, most women do not get enough DHA in their diets. Thus it is recommended that pregnant and breastfeeding women consume additional DHA daily, particularly during the last months of pregnancy and the first few years of life, when the brain of the baby develops rapidly.

Since iron is critical for energy and oxygen delivery to a developing baby, the CDC recommends routine iron supplementation during pregnancy, though many forms of iron cause constipation and gastrointestinal discomfort. Research shows that about 20% of pregnant women have low hemoglobin and iron levels. Ferrochel iron has been shown to help increase and maintain levels of iron, while being gentle on the stomach and colon. This form relieves the stomach from having to bind minerals to amino acids, allowing iron molecules to pass easily through the intestinal wall at a rate of 3.8 times greater than iron salt forms.

It has long been recommended that pregnant and lactating women take a prenatal supplement containing iodine, for optimal thyroid health. However, currently only 15 - 20% of pregnant and nursing women currently take supplements containing iodine. A recent report from the American Academy of Pediatrics highlights the vital role that iodine plays in the development of the nervous system and brain development of the baby. New recommendations reflect this finding, stating that pregnant and lactating women should take a supplement containing iodide, a form more easily absorbed by the body.
