What are New Chapter&Reg; Prenatal Vitamins?

Autumn Rivers

Prenatal vitamins are often considered a necessity for pregnant women to take regularly, and there are various brands to choose from. New Chapter® prenatal vitamins make up just one type of multivitamin on the market, and this product is touted as organic, and made only with whole foods. This type of supplement has the typical vitamins and minerals that would be expected in prenatal vitamins, in addition to natural herbs. The point of New Chapter&reg prenatal vitamins is to use probiotics to promote healthy fetal development.

Many women find it easy to take New Chapter® prenatal vitamins with each main meal since this habit makes it easy to remember to take them, but they can also be ingested without food. They do not have to be taken at any certain time of day.

There are 23 probiotic minerals and vitamins in New Chapter® prenatal vitamins, which is more than many other prenatal vitamins on the market contain. Like most other brands, this type features vitamins A, C, D, E, B6, and B12, as well as thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, calcium, iron, zinc, and folic acid. These are standard in most multivitamins on the market, but New Chapter® prenatal vitamins also contain magnesium, biotin, pantothenic acid, iodine, selenium, copper, chromium, manganese, molybdenum, and mixed carotenoids. Most other prenatal vitamins available do not include this many vitamins and minerals.

In addition, New Chapter® prenatal vitamins include herbal blends not found in most other multivitamins. These are meant to help keep stress and imbalances at bay during pregnancy, helping both mother and fetus feel as relaxed as possible during this time. Some of the main herbs included are rose hips, clove, lavender, peppermint, and lemon balm. All are meant to soothe and sustain prenatal health.

Not only are New Chapter® prenatal vitamins developed to nourish both the mother and fetus, but they are also geared toward improving breast health. This is possible due to the organic broccoli, kale, cauliflower, cabbage, sprouts, and more that are included in the vitamin, as this combination promotes the right amount of estrogen in the body. The addition of this herbal blend is what helps set New Chapter® prenatal vitamins apart from the typical products on the market. Mothers-to-be who are interested in all natural ingredients in their multivitamins may consider this kind of organic supplement, though they should first consult their doctor.

Folic acid, iron and the omega-3 fatty acid DHA are commonly included in prenatal vitamins.

My wife used these prenatal vitamins and she felt that they were good enough. But we had to switch to something else, seeing how expensive they were and how little they lasted. Since they have to be taken thrice a day, the bottle runs out fast.

@discographer-- I'm not sure when you wrote this. I'm assuming it was before 2012 when Proctor and Gamble purchased New Chapter. The quality of the product has reduced considerably since then. It is no longer as natural and healthy it once was.

Those who used New Chapter prenatal vitamins before 2012 and after 2012 noticed the difference right away. I used to be a loyal customer of the brand and did use these prenatal vitamins during my first pregnancy. I wanted to use them again during my second pregnancy but was shocked to discover how much the quality had changed.

I'm using New Chapter prenatal vitamins and I'm very happy with them. Thanks to the probiotics, these vitamins don't give me an upset stomach like other vitamins do. Probiotics are also great for the immune system.

I read that many vitamins on the market are synthetic, meaning that they are produced in the lab, not from food. I didn't want to use anything like that during pregnancy, so I went with New Chapter which is completely made from real food.
