Meet Prenate Pixie®, a smaller yet mighty once-daily softgel prenatal vitamin. Prenate Pixie® is sized and for preconception. Plus, it’s packed with robust nutrients to carry you and your baby through every step of pregnancy.1

Size Does Matter
In a side-by-side comparison with other leading prenatal vitamins, Prenate Pixie® is the clear winner when it comes to being compact. The pill is small and designed for easy swallowing. Not only is Prenate Pixie® smaller, but it is still a once-a-day prenatal vitamin. Prenate Pixie® addresses the needs in every step of the pregnancy cycle which eliminates the necessity to change vitamins before, during or after pregnancy. 1
Absorbable & Bioavailable Nutrients
By using the most absorbable form of each ingredient, Prenate Pixie® is able to retain the same nutritional value and benefits of Prenate Mini®, but in a much smaller size. Essentially there is as much or more quality, but less quantity of each ingredient to meet, and in some cases, exceed recommended daily values.
Folic Acid in the form of L-methylfolate
All women capable of pregnancy are advised to take folic acid.2-6 There are many adverse birth outcomes that can occur from a lack of folic acid during pregnancy, including but not limited to neural tube diseases.9 However, synthetic folic acid cannot be used by the body. It must be metabolized to a bioavailable form. Plus, as many as 53% of women have an impaired ability to metabolize folic acid to a bioavailable form.7,8 Prenate Pixie® contains 1 mg of folate in the form of L-methylfolate, a bioactive form of folate. So regardless of a woman’s ability to process folic acid, Prenate Pixie® provides bioavailable folate for everyone.
Omega 3-s in the form is Pure Fish Oil
Omega 3s (DHA & EPA) work together to provide mom and baby with a wealth of health benefits throughout pregnancy. The chart below helps illustrate these benefits for every stage from preconception through postpartum. Prenate Pixie® contains Omega-3s from pure fish oil, a more absorbable form to provide mom and baby with the 200 mgs they need.
Iron in the form of Sumalate®
Iron is important for both mom and baby for muscle, brain and blood function. However, iron comes in many forms and the body’s ability to absorb various forms of iron varies greatly. Prenate Pixie® contains 10 mg of ferrous asparto glycinate iron (Sumalate®). The chart to the right illustrates how much more absorbable Sumalate® is over other forms of iron in competing prenatal vitamins.10 With Prenate Pixie®, mom can rest assured that her requirements for iron will be met for both her and baby.
