  • Ladies, I have a question and need you expertise.  I have been taking a PNV. I picked it because it was highly ranked on a site that grades supplements.  I have no idea how to tell if I am actually getting what I need from it or if it is good quality (not sure if I trust the site that graded it). How do you ladies determine what PNV to take?  Thanks Ladies!

  • @Sglen3 My doctor told me basically any brand is fine, and the main thing is to find a version that doesn't make you sick to your stomach (namely because if you get morning sickness, you definitely won't want to take something that makes you nauseated anyway). My mom purchased me a brand with folate instead of folic acid for some reason that I forgot about now and I just take those. 

    My doctor also recommended taking vitamin D in addition to PNVs during the winter.

    @adirat  I also read a lot about folate vs folic acid - I guess it's because folate is the natural form or something? 

    @eggplantface I've heard the 800 mg minimum folic acid thing as well! Mine has 1000 which I'm a fan of.

    ETA: tagged wrong person, can't read (sorry @LuND !)

  • @ag90 not sure you meant to tag me as I didn't make the 800mg folic acid comment lol. But, while I'm here, I'll say that I prefer folate over folic acid for PNVs. Just google "folate vs folic acid" for the info. 
    aggoMTgirlCOworldNYTino24adirat
  • @sglen3 - My doctor also said she didn't recommend a specific brand, as long as it had 800 mg of folic acid.  When I said I was on Rainbow Light, she said "oh I really like that brand," so I've stuck with it. Anytime I debate changing, Iturn the bottle around and compare the amounts of the brand I'm tempted to switch to and the Rainbow Light bottle; every time I've decided that overall the Rainbow Light has higher or equal levels of the nutrients that are most important/I care about the most.  So I've never switched.  

    When I asked about folate vs folic acid, my doctor said both were fine and she didn't have a preference of one over the other.  

    The one thing about Rainbow Light is you need to take an additional DHA.  Rainbow Light has a DHA pill, but I don't like it because it has orange essential oil in it.  I don't like to take EOs internally and the relevant medical organizations recommend avoiding EOs during the first trimester.  So the fact that a pill that is targeting to pregnant woman has an EO is mind boggling to me.  But I'll get off my soap box on that...

    Mine too. And I take it at night in case it does make me sick, but so far the NatureMade is OK, just the occasional heartburn but that may be more related to what I eat for dinner.

    @Sglen3 Check out the Supplement Thread from a few months ago. @LuND posted about folate vs. folic acid, plus other discussions.

  • @adirat - I sis, but haven't for a while. I can look at the brand when I get home. I haven't taken them in a long time. I can't even remember what color the bottle is. 

    I should note, *spoiler alert* one of the most popular, the Vita-fusion gummies from Walmart are NOT USP. At least last time I checked they weren't, but that was about a year ago so it might have changed... probably not though.

  • @KristoKekerooni that's insane. I want to know the contents of my PNVs now. I'm so mad I can't take the Nature Made ones!! Also, I think it's really sucky and terrible of companies to make PNVs and not put the full contents in them because they know pregnant women and women TTC need these for healthy babies and they are messing with that. That is just disgusting. FDA should definitely regulate and stop giving in to just those with the money to buy them off.

    Now I'm all fired up. I hate things like this, absolutely cannot stand.

  • @ag90 - I totally feel you. But I didn't say you couldn't take them. They have started getting their products USP certified. Prenatals might be included. it's a slow process. Just look at the bottle. If they say USP, you are good, if not, switch.
    As a general rule: most gummies aren't USP. Most mix of vitamins (prentals, multvitamins, one a day, etc) aren't because it's a longer, harder process. If you can't find any prenatals right away that are USP, try finding a folic acid that is while you look for a prenatal that is in the meantime.

    But I get it. It's frustrating. It's politics and really doesn't belong in health, but it's all over the health industry.
