Life is complicated, so we've streamlined our supplementation for the motherhood transition. Rather than a separate prenatal and postnatal, we bring you: Mama Multi. We highly suggest pairing the Mama Multi with our Well Omega (or a plant source of DHA and EPA for vegan moms) for the best prenatal and postpartum outcomes.
You will, are, or already did make an ENTIRE human. Have you let that sink in yet? Try and think about that in between the feeding of that entire human, cleaning of that entire human, and loving that entire human. If you're tired, forgetful, bummed, or anxiety prone you may need to consider the fact that you possibly are giving or gave away a huge amount of vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids to your offspring. The Well Labs Mama Multi is a multivitamin that's appropriate to use before conception, during pregnancy, and after baby's arrival. There are all sorts of little nutrients that ward off depression, balance hormones, and create energy that can't be found in your average prenatal or postnatal multivitamin. Iron, choline, iodine, and more. Read this post and replenish, Mama. You got this!
The Mama Multi is designed to help meet the higher nutritional needs of women who are preparing for pregnancy or are pregnant or in the postpartum period of life... paired with a healthy diet, of course! Not only does Mama Multi address these needs in a comprehensive way, but it's also based on research with its inclusion of active (aka you can actually use them!) forms of key nutrients, such as 5-methyltetrahydrofolate as Quatrefolic®, Ferrochel® iron, and Albion® TRAACS® chelated minerals. This formula is designed to assure optimal utilization while being gentle to the digestive tract. The Mama Multi includes an optimal 2:1 magnesium to calcium ratio. Key antioxidant vitamin C, natural vitamin E mixed tocopherols and carotenoids protect cells from free radical damage. Mama Multi also contains the synergistic blend of vitamin K2 (as MK-7) and D3, both of which are critical for supporting bone strength and cardiovascular health.
Take 4 capsules. by mouth daily as directed by your healthcare practitioner.
Vitamin D, and Choline
The importance of these nutrients in mom's health and healthy fetal development cannot be overstated! Within the last several years, research on vitamin D has exploded. Vitamin D is important for brain and nervous system growth and development. Mom's vitamin D metabolism and vitamin D levels are important given the association made between maternal vitamin D status during pregnancy and brain function in the child. Mom's reserves of choline are depleted during pregnancy, and is critical to boost because it's the starting material for baby's brain development. Current data show that most pregnant women are not fully reaching the levels they need AND your specific genes could require more.
Folate - It's time to upgrade from Folic Acid!
Mama Multi provides the best form of B9: 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF)—the most bioavailable, active form of B9. 5-MTHF is provided as Quatrefolic®, which is proven to have greater stability, solubility, and bioavailability than other forms of Folate. Adequate folate nutrition before and during pregnancy supports normal fetal neurological development and a healthy pregnancy outcome. Supplementing with bioactive 5-MTHF allows for the bypassing of steps in folate metabolism. This may be especially beneficial in those with digestive concerns and those with genetic variations in folate metabolism.
Mama Multi provides generous levels of these critical vitamins. You need sufficient levels for energy production, cell growth, healthy red blood cells, and neurologic, cardiovascular, immune, dermatological, and emotional health. In addition, B6 has been studied for its ability to soothe the stomach during pregnancy, and help with nausea.
Bioavailable, yet Gentle Iron (bye, constipation!)
Approximately 20% of pregnant women have iron deficiency anemia, and it’s likely that a greater number have insufficient levels of iron. Ferrochel iron has been shown to help increase and maintain blood levels of iron while being gentle to the stomach and colon. This form of iron performs the stomach’s work in advance by binding minerals to amino acids. This allows the iron molecules to pass easily through the intestinal wall, avoiding stomach upset (as seen with other forms of iron) while maximizing absorption.
Other Important Nutrients
Mama Multi provides supportive nutrients, including vitamins A, C, D, and E; mixed carotenoids; and selenium to address the increased physiological stress of pregnancy and promote healthy tissue maintenance and growth. Research suggests that good maternal antioxidant status may positively influence birth weight. Zinc, copper, manganese, chromium, and molybdenum are provided as TRAACS® amino acid chelates for improved absorption in the gut and optimal assimilation. Calcium is provided as DimaCal®, a patented complex of calcium and malic acid that not only supports optimal calcium utilization and gastric tolerance but also supports the body’s energy-producing cycles. Calcium is provided in a 2:1 ratio with magnesium, which may help support normal muscular contraction in legs and arteries. Vitamin K and iodine are added to help ensure Mom's stores are full when she needs them!
