PreFoundation provides a comprehensive prenatal multivitamin/mineral, with optimal dosing and bioavailable forms of each nutrient. Vitamin D3 has been shown to restore vitamin D levels more effectively than vitamin D2. PreFoundation also provides L-5-MTHF, the bioactive form of folate that bypasses the often impaired enzymatic step needed for folic acid activation. As a result, pregnant women supplementing with L-5-MTHF have been shown to have higher red blood cell folate levels than when supplementing with folic acid.
Potassium iodide provides an essential source of iodine, often deficient in women, and linked to cognitive development in children. PreFoundation also provides highly bioavailable forms of other vitamins and minerals critical to prenatal health. This includes the bioavailable citrate forms of calcium, magnesium, zinc, and copper, and the bisglycinate form of iron, shown to be as effective during pregnancy as twice the dose of iron typically used. PreFoundation also provides superior forms of B vitamins, including vitamin B12 as methylcobalamin, as well as the 5’-phosphate forms of riboflavin and vitamin B6.
