What makes Needed's Prenatal Multi different from others?
We work directly with practitioners to select nutrients that work best in the body, and dosages intended to fully nourish, unlike most prenatals that provide inadequate nutrient amounts and tough-to-absorb forms.
Powder allows our Prenatal Multi to deliver all of the vitamins, minerals, and botanicals needed for complete, comprehensive nourishment — many of the best nutrients are bulky and can’t fit into 1- or 2-a-day prenatal capsules. You’ll see that a number of nutrient dosages are quite unique including 550mg of Choline and 400mg of Magnesium. Powder is more easily absorbed into the body. There is no need for additives or coatings. And, it tastes great and is seamless to incorporate into daily meals, drinks, or snacks (like smoothies, protein bites, nut milks, and more).
When should I start taking the Prenatal Multi?
Take it before, during, after pregnancy — and even beyond — for the nourishment you need to feel your best and avoid depletion, and to give your baby everything their body needs to thrive from the very start. We like to stress the importance of preconception nutritional preparation and postpartum recovery, so this product is for you even if you are a few years away from having kids or a few years postpartum.
Why do the amounts of some of the nutrients in Prenatal Multi exceed the percent Daily Value?
We designed our Prenatal Multi for optimal nourishment rather than to meet bare minimum needs. Daily Values are set off of the Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDAs) which most often do not offer enough nutritional value.
Is your Prenatal Multi vegan, allergen free, and Non-GMO?
Our Prenatal Multi is vegetarian, but not vegan. There are considerable sustainability questions around the common vegan source of Vitamin D3, lichen. Lichen is a moss-like organism that exists as a composite of fungus and algae. It is an important part of the Arctic tundra ecosystem and grows "extremely slowly", less than a millimeter per year. For this reason, we prefer a “mind-fully made” D3 originally sourced from lanolin.
It is allergen free, meaning no milk, egg, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, soy, and gluten. It is also free of GMOs, artificial colors, artificial flavors, preservatives, and other additives and fillers.
Can I give it to my partner?
Yes, we do. We make a “couples smoothie” almost every morning. We’re working on a specific formula for the men in our lives that will have a few more sperm boosters like CoQ10. In the meantime, our Prenatal Multi paired with our Omega-3 and Collagen Protein is a great start. Conception is a two-way street. (We then separately take our Pre/Probiotic.)
Will the Prenatal Multi make my urine a bright yellow?
It may at times, especially with consistent use. B Vitamins in particular can cause urine to change to a bright yellow hue. Your body is excreting what it doesn’t need. We use nutrients forms that are most easily absorbed by the body, but because we set dosages to be fully supportive, the nutrient amounts may sometimes be more than you need. At our dosages, this is not harmful in any way, but just a guarantee you hit optimal amounts. Less is not more in our mind!
Where is the Prenatal Multi Manufactured?
The Prenatal Multi is manufactured in the United States at a FDA, GMP and QAI Certified Organic facility.
What kind of testing do you do?
We test every batch for performance and quality, including through third parties that test for nutritional content, pesticides and herbicides, heavy metals, microbes, allergens, and other contaminants.
Everything makes me nauseous while I am pregnant, will your product work for me?
Many pregnant mamas find our product more pleasant to take than a pill, and can often find something palatable to mix the powder into, even while nauseated. It is simple to incorporate the powder into the meals or beverages that sound appealing like smoothies, meals, protein bites, etc.
Why do you suggest taking more than just the Prenatal Multi?
Our Prenatal Multi is the most comprehensive available, but some extra support is always needed during this life stage. Our products are designed to be taken together. We recommend pairing the Prenatal Multi with our Omega-3 powder, Collagen Protein, and Pre/Probiotic to fully support you and baby before, during, and after pregnancy. Keeping the products separate allows us to maintain quality. For example, we find the Omega-3 (DHA + EPA) is compromised when taken out of the context (our liposomes keep the Omega-3 in their natural context) and mixed into a multivitamin
Why should I start a subscription? How does a subscription work?
Daily, continuous supplementation is needed to maintain optimal levels for you and your baby before, during, and after pregnancy. Our subscription ensures you never miss a day of optimal nourishment. We’ll send you an email each month, a few days before we charge you and ship your next box. You can delay an order, or cancel your subscription at any time, right from your account page.
I’m not yet pregnant or a mama, is your product still for me?
Yes, our product is tailored for before, during, and after pregnancy, but it is beneficial at all stages of life. Research suggests that a mama’s habits prior to conception influence her baby’s well-being not just at birth, but also for its entire lifetime. We recommend taking our Prenatal Multi prior to becoming pregnant to build your stores of key nutrients that are commonly depleted during pregnancy. The more you have prior to pregnancy, the better you may be able to feel during pregnancy.
What happens if I miss a day? Or a few days?
Don't sweat it. We know how busy life can get. We suggest building your Prenatal Multi consumption into an existing routine (like your morning smoothie), to keep the habit strong. Taking your Prenatal Multi every day will provide positive, long-lasting results.
