We recommend taking Iron away from our Prenatal Multi, as Iron can interact with other nutrients and this can impact absorption. We also recommend taking only as much as you need (some mamas do not need to supplement), as too much supplemental Iron can generate oxidative stress and impact the gut microbiome. Talk to your health practitioner about testing your Iron status before, during, and after pregnancy, and supplement if you are falling short. We've included a handy dosage chart below to help you know what's needed.

How to Use

Take one capsule up to four times daily, as advised by your health practitioner. We suggest taking away from meals and your Prenatal Multi. Our Iron is absorbed most easily on an empty stomach*.

Real Reviews from Real Customers

Thoughtful inquiry is needed.

What makes Needed’s Prenatal Iron different than others?
We offer an Iron bound to Glycine as Ferrous Bisglycinate Chelate (Ferrochel™) in 13.5mg capsules that allow you to more easily dose up or down as you need. Ferrous Bisglycinate Chelate is a mineral chelate in which Iron is bound to two Glycine amino acid molecules. It is easily absorbed by the body and, unlike most other Iron forms, it minimizes constipation and gastric upset.
Why do you offer Iron separately from your Prenatal Multi?
We recommend taking Iron away from our Prenatal Multi, as Iron can interact negatively with other nutrients. We also recommend taking only as much as you need (some mamas do not need to supplement), as too much supplemental Iron can generate oxidative stress and alter the gut microbiome. Talk to your health practitioner about testing your Iron status before, during, and after pregnancy, and supplement if you are falling short. Our Iron is bound to Glycine for better absorption and digestive comfort.
How do I know how much Iron I need?
Start by scrolling up and reviewing our dosage chart. This chart was created in partnership with a group of women’s health practitioners that regularly test women's Iron levels before, during, and after pregnancy.
Is your Iron vegan, allergen free, and Non-GMO?
Our Iron is vegetarian and non-GMO. Free of 9 major allergens, gluten, and unwanted fillers.
What are the "other ingredients" in your Iron?
Iron as Ferrous Bisglycinate Chelate (Ferrochel™) is carried in vegetable capsules made from cellulose with a small amount of extra cellulose and the amino acid, L-Leucine, to help place the Iron into capsules.
Where is your Iron manufactured?
Our Iron is manufactured in the United States at an FDA registered facility that has third party GMP certification.
What kind of testing do you do?
We test all products for quality and safety at third-party laboratories including tests for nutritional content, pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals, microbes, and other contaminants.
I’ve found Iron really makes me nauseous while I am pregnant, will your product work for me?
Our Iron is the Ferrous Bisglycinate Chelate form, a mineral chelate in which Iron is bound to two Glycine amino acids. It is easily absorbed by the body and, unlike most other Iron forms, it minimizes constipation or gastric upset.
Can I customize my subscription based on my monthly Iron needs?
