Robust Nutritional Content
The 11 concentrated ingredients in Prenate Pixie® were chosen to address the needs of women during every step of the pregnancy cycle. The nutrient forms were selected for their high absorbency, especially for folate, DHA and iron.
- Folate – The folate in Prenate Pixie® is a traditional folic acid, plus a form that is absorbable for the 53% of women who have a mutation that prevents them from processing traditional folic acid.6-8 This combination means that baby gets the folic acid benefits needed to help ensure neural tube closure.
- DHA – The DHA in Prenate Pixie® is derived from fish oil. DHA is important for a baby’s brain development, gestational length and weight.9-15 DHA received postpartum helps with a baby’s cognitive and visual development and motor skills.9-15
- Iron – The iron in Prenate Pixie® is almost three times as absorbable as common forms, so a smaller dose is more efficient.16 Plus, the iron in Prenate Pixie® is well tolerated in pregnant women because it is easier on the stomach than other forms. This helps ensure that mom and baby can attain their recommended intakes for iron, while minimizing its GI side effects.1,17
