Prenatal Ultra combines over 50 minerals, vitamins, amino acids, digestive enzymes and natural herbs to promote healthy fetal development and optimal whole body health during both pregnancy and breastfeeding. This professional grade nutraceutical product contains a full complement of supportive nutrients to promote the proper function of many essential processes, including red blood cell production, cognitive function, bone and teeth formation, lactation, energy production and detoxification.
Both the mother and the baby require iron for the production of red blood cells. Having optimal levels of iron also helps ensure that the fetus receives enough oxygen to thrive. This product contains only highly bioavailable forms of iron that can be quickly absorbed by the body and utilized.
Calcium & Magnesium
Calcium and magnesium both play a critical role in the development of bones and teeth starting in the fetal phase and continue to support healthy teeth and bones throughout adulthood. Magnesium actually helps the body absorb and utilize calcium to its fullest potential.
Beta Carotene, Vitamin C, Vitamin E
Beta carotene, vitamin C and vitamin E all support the body with powerful antioxidant properties. The notable increase in oxygen utilization that accompanies pregnancy leads to an increased need to respond to free radical oxidants.
A full range of B vitamins has been known to support a variety of processes that influence whole body health, including proper cognitive function, eyesight, digestive function, energy production, nervous system function, muscle development and cardiovascular function. Folic acid (vitamin B9), in particular, has been recognized for its ability to support healthy lactation.
The proprietary blend of vegetarian enzymes found in Enzopharm® Plus has been expertly developed to enhance the bioavailability of certain nutrients so that they can be more easily absorbed by the body.

What are prenatals?
The human body needs a full range of nutrients in order to function at an optimal level every day. A variety of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes assist the body with the many processes and functions that contribute to whole body health on a daily basis. This relationship between nutrients and whole body health remains strong and can even intensify throughout pregnancy, because fetal development increases the need for nutrients. During pregnancy, nutrients are required for both fetal development and the whole body health of the mother. Iron, B vitamins, calcium, choline, magnesium and vitamin E are just some of the wide range of nutrients that can support the whole body health of both mother and baby during pregnancy.
Folic acid (vitamin B9) and iron are two of the most critical nutrients for a mother to obtain during pregnancy, because pregnant mothers actually require more of these two nutrients than usual. Iron is needed for a variety of processes and functions that include red blood cell production for both the mother and baby, as well as transporting oxygen to the fetus. Meanwhile, folic acid can reduce the risk of neural tube defects in the fetus and support optimal lactation in the mother.
Calcium and magnesium are both vital for the healthy development of the baby’s teeth and bones. While both can be found in a wide variety of food sources, neither of these nutrients are highly bioavailable. Calcium, in particular, requires the assistance of vitamin D in order to be properly absorbed and utilized by the body.
During pregnancy, a mother’s oxygen intake could increase by as much as 30-50 percent. Due to this increase, the proliferation of free radical oxidants and the risk of oxidative stress also increase. To decrease the risk of oxidative stress and damage, it is even more critical for mothers to ingest potent antioxidants like vitamin C, beta carotene (vitamin A) and vitamin E during pregnancy. If not addressed properly, oxidative stress and damage have the potential to lead to fetal growth restriction and other adverse pregnancy outcomes.
Choline is an organic chemical compound that has also been recognized for its antioxidant properties, but choline’s contributions to an optimal pregnancy go beyond its ability to protect the body from oxidative stress and damage. Choline also plays a critical role in developing the spinal cord of the fetus, as well as supporting cognitive development.
All of the B vitamins have been recognized for their shared ability to support the optimal whole body health for both the mother as well as proper fetal development. While folic acid (vitamin B9) is one of the most critical nutrients for a pregnant mother to obtain, the other vitamins in the B complex also make significant contributions to whole body health. Inositol (vitamin B8), for example, reduces the risk of gestational diabetes by supporting optimal glucose metabolism during pregnancy. In addition to supporting healthy brain and nervous system function, other B vitamins may also support the whole body health of the mother by reducing feelings of nausea and supporting healthy cardiovascular function.
Of course, many nutrients are not highly bioavailable and cannot be readily absorbed or utilized by the body. Iron and calcium are two specific examples of essential nutrients that are not highly bioavailable. Calcium cannot even be absorbed by the body without the assistance of vitamin D, and iron also often needs the assistance of amino acids and other chemical compounds to be more efficiently absorbed by the body.
