Pregnancy is a critical time for optimizing health and nutrition, both for the mother and her baby. Overall nutritional and caloric needs are greatly increased by pregnancy and breastfeeding.* However, especially during the first trimester because of nausea, women are not always able to consume the desired number of calories or variety of nutrients. Several nutrients in a good prenatal multiple vitamin have been found to benefit pregnant women who suffer from "morning sickness," including vitamin C, vitamin B6, and vitamin K.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend folic acid supplementation for all women of childbearing age because the biggest need is during the first trimester, when a woman may not even be aware she is pregnant. A woman who consumes a healthful diet with adequate folate may reduce her risk of having a child with a birth defect of the brain or spinal cord. Folate intake should not exceed 250 percent of the government's recommended daily value (1,000 mcg).

The need for other nutrients, such as iron, increases dramatically during pregnancy and is not always compensated for by diet alone.

Multiple vitamin supplementation – during the year before becoming pregnant, during pregnancy, and while breastfeeding – can help produce a healthy baby and benefit the mother through labor, delivery, breastfeeding, and postpartum.

Basic Prenatal is a comprehensive supplement formulated with the special needs of pregnancy in mind. Manufactured with none of the additives and coatings usually found in mainstream prenatal tablets, Basic Prenatal includes only the most bioavailable nutrients.

High-potency multiple vitamins may sometimes be difficult for a woman to "stomach," particularly during the first trimester of pregnancy. Therefore, Thorne Research does not include large amounts of the nutrients commonly known to cause stomach upset. Instead, these nutrients are included in their most active or absorbable forms for superior utilization.* Among these are the active forms of several of the B vitamins – pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (vitamin B6), riboflavin 5'-phosphate (vitamin B2), L-5-MTHF (active form of folate), and methylcobalamin (vitamin B12).

Calcium in large doses may also cause stomach upset. Therefore, a moderate dose in the highly absorbable citrate-malate form is used. Additional calcium and magnesium can be supplemented, especially in the final trimester.

Basic Prenatal may also be taken by nursing mothers.

Carbohydrates are often maligned for those trying to lose weight. Yet, avoiding starchy foods is very difficult for many individuals. Complex carbohydrates are an important nutritional component of a healthy diet that adds dietary fiber, B vitamins, and trace elements. Diets too low in carbohydrates can depress serotonin levels and mood. Too often, people resort to fatty or sugary foods to feel satiated. With TheraSlim™, individuals can eat bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, and other complex carbohydrates as part of a balanced diet, yet limit their caloric contribution. TheraSlim™ contains Phase 2 Starch Neutralizer®, a natural, non-stimulant adjunct from the white kidney bean, Phaseolus vulgaris L., that may reduce the enzymatic digestion of dietary starches. Phase 2 Starch Neutralizer® is supported by a substantial body of competent and reliable scientific evidence, including 14 clinical investigations. Two capsules of TheraSlim™ at least twice a day, taken with starchy meals or a snack, may assist in weight control when used in conjunction with a sensible diet and exercise program.

Vitamin D is inadequate in many individuals and daily need appears to be higher than previously thought. Vitamin D’s role in calcium metabolism and bone health is well known. However, it has many other important physiologic roles that are not as well appreciated. Vitamin D receptors are widely distributed in the body, including colon, prostate, breast and ovary, where it acts to inhibits the excessive growth of body cells and tissues and helps cells mature normally. Adequate amounts of vitamin D, an essential, fat-soluble vitamin, come from consistent exposure to sunshine and are difficult to obtain from dietary sources. Postmenopausal women, older individuals, and those with malabsorption, limited sun exposure, or certain illnesses may need higher intakes of vitamin D. Vitamin D3, the naturally occurring form, is supplied in high-potency amount of 1,000 IU per capsule for those needing to conveniently augment dietary intake. A daily vitamin D3 intake of 1,000 to 2,000 units, an amount shown to be safe and effective by clinical studies, is now advised by many experts.
