Jarrow Formulas Preg-Natal Tablets is especially formulated to meet a woman’s nutritional needs during pregnancy and lactation.
Jarrow Formulas has looked very specifically at the special needs of a woman during her pregnancy and the period thereafter. PregNatal Tablets is not just like any multi vitamin/mineral supplement with simply adapted doses, but a well thought out product which leaves out ingredients that might harm the development of a fetus or make delivery more difficult.

A special time, special needs
Jarrow Formulas Preg-Natal Tablets is designed for that special time when expectant mothers need more of virtually every nutrient.
During pregnancy, a baby needs roughly 300-400 calories daily. Pregnancy also requires a higher nutrient-to-calorie ratio. “Empty” calories can promote gestational diabetes (a rise in blood sugar levels during pregnancy) and short change the developing baby.
Optimal health for mother and fetus requires: a well-balanced diet, proper exercise and support from a comprehensive, scientifically formulated nutritional supplement
In Preg-Natal Tablets, modern nutritional knowledge is paired with traditional herbal wisdom to yield maximal benefits.
Morning sickness, nausea and constipation are problems associated with pregnancy. In the early stages of pregnancy, the liver works hard to eliminate toxins and elevated levels of hormones. Fatty foods, alcohol, caffeine, etc. increase the liver’s burden. As waste products are eliminated from the system, nausea may result. Preg- Natal + DHA includes ginger root extract, used traditionally to settle the stomach.
Vitamins B-6, C and K support the liver’s ability to process toxins, as does fi ber from fruits and vegetables. Fiber also improves bowel function, often compromised during pregnancy.
Safeguarding the fetus
Need for folic acid, to prevent neural tube birth defects, may double during pregnancy. Extra folic acid supplies the demands for DNA synthesis, heavy metal detoxification, red blood cell production and neurological development.
Supplementing the minerals
Mineral intake during pregnancy is vital for bone and teeth quality for mother and child. Calcium needs increase greatly and must be balanced with additional magnesium, as in this formula.
Iron and zinc are two other crucial minerals needed in higher amounts during pregnancy. Both support the blood and immune systems of mother and fetus.
If the needs of the fetus are not met by the diet, minerals must be drawn from those stored in the mother’s body. Preg-Natal ensures an adequate intake of minerals by supplying 100% or more of the recommended intake of calcium, magnesium, iron, iodine, selenium, copper, manganese and chromium.
More than just a complete formula
PregNatal is a complete multi-vitamin/mineral formula for pregnancy and lactation. It includes high-potency B-complex vitamins, vitamin K to support blood and skeletal health, and natural vitamin E for free radical protection. Vitamin A is safely supplied as a mixture of vitamin A palmitate and natural marine beta-carotene, along with lutein for antioxidant protection to eye tissues.
Can zinc deficiency cause depression?
The health benefits of zinc include a proper functioning of the immune and digestive systems, controlled diabetes, reduction in stress levels, improved metabolism, and an increased rate of healing for acne and wounds. Also, it is helpful in terms of pregnancy, hair care, eczema, weight loss, night blindness, cold, eye care, appetite loss, and many other conditions.
What is the importance of zinc?
Zinc plays a vital role in protein synthesis and helps regulate the cell production in the immune system of the human body. It is mostly found in the strongest muscles of the body and is found in especially high concentrations in the white and red blood cells, retina, skin, liver, kidneys, bones, and pancreas. The semen and the prostate gland in men also contain significant amounts of zinc.
In the human body, there are more than 300 different enzymes that require zinc to function normally. Researchers believe that 3,000 proteins (out of approximately 100,000) have this vital mineral.
A normal person has two to three grams of zinc at any given time. There are organs in the human body which secrete it, such as the salivary gland, the prostate gland, and the pancreas. Even cells involved in the activity of the immune system secrete zinc. It is used up in various metabolic processes and eliminated through normal excretory and urinary channels, so it needs to be replenished often. If it isn’t, you will begin to suffer from deficiency symptoms.
What determines attractiveness?
It is generally accepted as common knowledge how women will feel more sexually attracted to masculin men, but will take far more factors into account when they select future spouses, for which they prefer reliable men who will help raise her offspring.
Another assumption is how women will feel most attracted to masculin-looking men at the most fertile phase of their cycle.
In a recent study where women were shown masculinized and feminized faces of the same men, it was concluded that apparently there is no distinct phase in a women's cycle when they feel less or more attracted, but a bigger influence was whether or not they were in a phase of their life in which they desired to have kids.
When hearing about this study, I immediately wondered why they didn't mention attractiveness of body odour?
Would masculin men not also smell differently from feminine men? In a similar vein, they could have modulated a man's own smell by adding perfume that is perceived as masculin or feminine.
Whomever has followed threads on any perfume forum or has watched popular perfume reviews on Youtube will know that one of the most often asked questions by young and inexperienced men is, "what fragrance is a 'panty dropper'?" In other words, will this fragrance make me so irresistible that women will want to have sex with me?"
A multivitamin a day keeps the doctor awayWith so many supplements available, and a lot of supplement advertisements in sports magazines targeted at athletes, one is rarely seen: ads for a multivitamin and mineral.
When you think about supplements, what are the first thoughts that go through your mind? Whey protein, nitric oxide, creatine, fat burners, or maybe something else? These are the ones that consume the ads.
What if I told you though that the most important supplement that you must have in your arsenal is not on this list? That is your basic multivitamin. From the chewable ones you took as a kid to the ones you have now. Oh, you don't take them? If not, you better change that immediately if you want to meet your fitness goals.
For the human body to complete all the tasks it has in a normal day, it must be given a wide and complex variety of vital nutrients. Becoming deficient in any one of these essential vitamins or minerals causes breakdown of the metabolic pathway that produces optimum efficiency and performance goes down quick. Obviously, this is NOT what you want!
Why you should combine B12 with BiofolateJarrow Formulas Methyl-B12, Methylfolate Plus Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate (P5P) Lozenge combines the active forms of these vitamins to support DNA and neurotransmitter synthesis and amino acid metabolism. Homocysteine is converted to methionine by methylfolate and B12, or converted to cysteine by P5P-dependent enzymes. P5P is the biologically active form of vitamin B6.
Natural family planningIn the past week another birth control method came under fire for a brief moment: even the intrauterine device (IUD or coil) with the lowest amount of hormones when compared to the birth control PILL, has an oftentimes negative effect all over the body and is not 'just' effective locally. I was like, "duh, what else were you expecting?" .
Afterwards, the news disasppeared rapidly out of the headlines as of course, what else is to the disposition of a fertile woman, who likes to have sex, but doesn't like to get pregnant? A condom!
Indeed, a condom. But what if you have a steady and reliable partner, who isn't likely to get a STD, then it is quite something to always be using 'that' contraption.
