Important for you to know
Beta-carotene, the Vitamin A source in Bellybar Prenatal, is a water soluble, natural source that is converted to Vitamin A in the body. The body converts the amount of Vitamin A needed, and excretes any excess. There is no risk of overdose which is possible from a retinyl source, such as Vitamin A Palmitate.
Bellybar Prenatal Chewable Tablets are designed to
provide critical pre-conception nutrients
, such as folic acid and iron. The United States National Institute of Health (NIH) recommends that adult women
consume at least 400 mcg of folic acid daily
prior to conception, because "folate deficient women who become pregnant are at greater risk of giving birth to low birth weight, premature, and/or infants with neural tube defects".
Folic acid is critical during the first 6-8 weeks of pregnancy
- a time when many women don't even know they are pregnant. Therefore, women of childbearing years should ensure their diet is sufficient in folic acid. Also, many women enter pregnancy iron deficient, and the iron in the Bellybar Prenatal chewable vitamin should help women increase their iron levels prior to conception.
