Your Pregnancy and Nutrition
by Dawn Jarvis, MS, RD, LDN
It is natural for pregnant mothers, particularly first time moms, to
worry about whether they are they eating enough and if they are getting
all the essential nutrients necessary for themselves and their baby.
Here are some key nutritional elements to consider for a healthy
pregnancy and baby.

Iron-deficiency anemia is common in pregnant women since the amount
of iron that a woman requires increases to make enough blood cells for
you and your baby. It’s tough to get all the iron you need from your
daily diet. That’s why the
Garden of Life
myKind Organics Prenatal
Multivitamin includes 18mg of natural plant iron that comes from
easy-to-digest organic curry leaves. Research shows that iron absorption
and utilization in the body is greatly enhanced by adding vitamin C and bioflavonoids so we also included organic amla berry which is rich in
these vital nutrients.
Now Onto B vitamins
B vitamins are very important to health because they help the body
obtain energy from food and they also help form red blood cells. Most
women experience tiredness during pregnancy therefore adequate intake of
B vitamins is essential for maintaining good energy levels.
Organics Prenatal Multi contains organic guava and holy basil which are
high in energizing B1, B2, B3, B6 and Pantothenic acid.
An important B vitamin found naturally in green leafy plants, folate
is used by the body to make new cells, including those that will form
the brain, spine, organs, skin and bones of a baby. Folate deficiency
can result in megaloblastic anemia, which causes weakness, fatigue,
irritability and headache. For pregnancy, 800mcg is usually recommended
to prevent neural tube defects.
Organics Prenatal Multi contains organic
lemon peel providing 800mcg of food-based folate to help keep mother and
