Questions About
Be Well Rounded

If I eat healthy during my pregnancy, do I still need to take a pre-natal vitamin?

Even if you eat a well balanced diet, most doctors recommend a prenatal vitamin to ensure you receive enough folic acid and iron.  Folic Acid helps protect the baby from birth defects.  Extra iron is needed during pregnancy to protect you from anemia and help the baby grow properly.    Other vitamins are important as well such as calcium and vitamin D.  Be Well Rounded! is meant to be a complement to eating a healthy diet, eating healthy is still very important.

Can I just take a regular multi-vitamin?

During pregnancy your body needs extra vitamins and nutrients that are not in (or not in at a high enough level) a regular multi-vitamin. We recommend using a pre-natal vitamin prior to, during and post pregnancy.

Why is the DHA supplement separate from the vitamin?

Having a separate DHA supplement allows for a more stable and consistent product to ensure all the vitamins and minerals are of the highest quality.  Having the ingredients combined with the vitamin may degrade the potency of the vitamins and minerals.

Why do I need more folic acid, calcium and iron during my pregnancy?

Taking folic acid, a B vitamin, before and during pregnancy is important to prevent birth defects of your baby’s brain and spinal cord. Your growing baby needs calcium to build strong bones and teeth, a healthy heart, nerves and muscles.  If you do not get enough calcium while you are pregnant, the baby will take it from your bones, which may impair your own health later on. Iron is essential for making the protein (hemoglobin) in red blood cells that carry oxygen to other cells.  During pregnancy, the amount of blood in your body increases (to 50% more than usual) – more iron is needed to make more hemoglobin.  Iron deficiency during pregnancy can lead to preterm delivery. 

What is DHA? Why do I need to take it during my pregnancy?

DHA is short for docosahexaenoic acid, a fatty acid found in the meat of cold-water fish, whale and seal blubber.  DHA is used during pregnancy to help promote better mental development of the fetus.

What is chelated minerals?

In their ordinary form, minerals are difficult for the body to absorb through the intestine. The process of chelation does the stomach’s work in advance by producing low molecular weight mineral compounds in which the minerals are bound to amino acids to produce natural organic chelates that can pass easily through the intestinal wall. It reduces gastro upset and nausea.

What is natural enteric coating and why is it better?

Natural coatings can be made from plant-sourced ingredients such as tree fibers and algae and provides a coating over the soft gel. Enteric coating provides an increased absorption of Omega 3 Fatty Acids and reduces the side effects, i.e, the fish burp and reduces instance of gastric upset.
