While getting enough calcium is essential to your overall health, most people get almost all the calcium they need from what they eat (common sources include dairy products, leafy greens, and fortified foods). Plus, studies have found that calcium can inhibit iron absorption — and iron is one of the top nutrient deficiencies for people with ovaries (especially during pregnancy).* That’s why we recommend avoiding products high in calcium for an hour before and after taking the Prenatal Multi.
Instead of calcium, the Prenatal Multi contains vitamin D. Vitamin D helps the calcium you’re already getting from food work more effectively in your body — and it doesn’t interfere with iron absorption.*
