Be Well Rounded! contains Ferrochel® chelated iron blend which reduces the occurrence of constipation and gastric upset due to iron intake. Our vitamin is one of the few that contains Lutemax 2020® which provides Lutein and Zeaxanthin to support healthy eyes, protects against damaging blue light and supports increased skin hydration. Lutein plays a crucial early role in the development of neural tissues. It also contains 225mg DHA/ omega 3 fatty acids which are vital to support healthy fetal brain and eye development during pregnancy and nursing and recommended by ACOG. Finally, Be Well Rounded! is free of artificial flavor or sweetener, milk and lactose and is dye, Sugar and gluten free. I like to recommend Be Well Rounded! also due to the small pill size which makes for easy swallowing- and avoiding gummies which contain unnecessary sugar and minimal or no iron.

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.
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.
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. Also, it allows us to keep the caplet petite as you know, we don’t like horse pills!

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.
We worked very hard to eliminate any harmful FD&C dyes from our vitamins. We utilized beet root to provide the beautiful pink hue. Beet root is a natural colorant that poses no harm to you or your baby.
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 brain development of the fetus.

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.
Lutemax 2020 is a special blend of Lutein and Zeaxanthin that provides extra support in developing and maintaining healthy eyes. Lutein is called a carotenoid vitamin. It is related to beta-carotene and vitamin A. Foods rich in lutein include broccoli, spinach, kale, corn, orange pepper, kiwi fruit, grapes, orange juice, zucchini, and squash. Lutein is absorbed best when it is taken with a high-fat meal.
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
Lutein has been shown to play a role in early infant development, particularly brain and eye development.
