7 Reasons to Try
needed's Prenatal Multi

Many women think of prenatals as something to take while you’re pregnant. But, here's the thing: it’s actually important to start taking a prenatal before you’re pregnant. Yes, you read that right. If you’re thinking about trying soon, now’s the time to pick a prenatal. And it turns out, that’s a pretty important task. Because there's a big difference between the best prenatal vitamin and the rest. Although the vast majority of expectant mamas take daily prenatals, 95+% of us still have key nutrient deficiencies.


That means that most prenatals aren’t cutting it. A better prenatal was needed—and that's why Needed prenatal vitamins were developed. By stepping up to meet your nutritional needs from preconception through parenthood years, Needed vitamins give your body the ingredients to thrive, not just survive.


Here are seven reasons why Needed’s line of prenatal supplements go above and beyond to give you optimal nourishment throughout all stages of your parenthood journey.

It has ALL the critical nutrients you and baby need

It might seem like there should be some sort of standard for what’s in a prenatal vitamin to make sure that mama and baby get what they need, right? That’d be great, but unfortunately, that’s not the case. And it turns out, many prenatal vitamins on the market are low in or completely lack critical nutrients like Omega-3 DHA + EPA, certain B Vitamins, Choline and Magnesium. Not with Needed. With clinically-validated vitamins that incorporate the best of modern science and ancient traditions, the vitamins are tailored to support fertility, pregnancy and postpartum recovery.

It includes optimal forms of nutrients

Unless you’re super savvy in the nutrition space, you might think (like most of us) that nutrients are nutrients, right? But the truth is not all nutrients are created equal. Nutrients have different forms, and some are better used by the body than others.


Based on the latest clinical research, Needed uses sustainably sourced vitamins and minerals that are most effectively used by the body. For example, you've probably heard of the importance of Folic Acid during preconception and pregnancy. However, that advice can be deceiving because research shows that an estimated 40% to 60% of mamas cannot absorb Folic Acid. Instead, Needed uses Folate (also known as methylfolate), which is the active form of Folate that has all the benefits of Folic Acid and is more effectively used by the body.

It excludes unwanted additives and fillers

Your prenatal vitamin is supposed to nourish your body and your baby, not give you additives and extras that you don’t want or need. By using the latest science and using third-party testing, Needed intentionally excludes potentially harmful nutrient forms, unnecessary fillers, and ingredients with high heavy metal loads (like “whole food” ingredients.

It's easy on the stomach

With morning sickness or reflux, taking a handful of big vitamin capsules may be impossible. Needed gets it. That's why they offer their 24 vitamin and mineral combo in a delicious vanilla powder, too. Stir it into a smoothie, milk, or juice to get the benefits of prenatal vitamins in sippable form. They also offer the Prenatal Multi Essentials - a pared down version of their complete Prenatal Multi to just the essentials. It still has highly supportive dosages of the key vitamins and minerals you need, and the most nourishing Prenatal Multi that’s available in just 3 capsules.

It leaves room for customization

Needed knows that while most needs in the perinatal stages are quite similar, we all differ somewhat. So they encourage mamas to customize additional nutrients for optimized dosages. For example, some mamas might need an Iron supplement. But, for others who meet their Iron needs through diet, excess Iron through supplements can generate oxidative stress and alter the gut microbiome. (No thanks!) Needed intentionally left Iron out of its prenatal and offers it as a separate product. It’s even offered in conveniently small doses so that every mom can build the dose that works for her.


It’s a similar story The same goes for Omega-3. Since Omegas can easily oxidize (i.e., get damaged and do more harm than good in your body), it’s best to buy and take them separately. And that’s exactly what Needed offers. Added bonus: Needed even helps you test your levels at home.

It nourishes you beyond vitamins and minerals

Needed recognizes that you need more than vitamins and minerals to be optimally nourished.. These micronutrients matter a lot, but so do macronutrients. And research shows that many moms don't meet their protein needs during or after pregnancy, which can destabilize blood sugar, cause more nausea, negatively affect gut health and more. By supplementing with Needed's ethically sourced collagen powder, you can support your body's increased protein needs. It is flavorless and dissolves easily into any liquid or soft food - yes, even your morning (decaf) coffee!

They nourish your partner, too

As a hopeful expectant or current mama, you have unique demands on your body. But your health isn’t the only contributor to a healthy pregnancy. Men need to optimize their nutrition too, especially during the preconception period. Needed offers a Complete Plan™ for Men that supports sperm health, brain function, gut health, and more. Or, you can couple your commitment to health (and your future baby’s health) with their Conception Support for Two Plan.
