Good Supplement For Pregnant Women?
Good morning, introduce me Laras, I want to ask what the doctor thinks about vitamins that are better for pregnant women? I am currently 12 weeks pregnant, and taking Promavit from a prescription from a doctor, at the same doctor, my friend did not buy a presavit prescription, but Obimin, because it is also good and also more affordable. Please enlighten me, thank you
Good morning, thanks for the question.
Promavit brand supplements contain micronutrients and multivitamins that are quite complete and contain fish oil. Omega 3 contains DHA and EPA that are needed during pregnancy for fetal development and to prevent post partum depression.
While the obimin brand supplement contains slightly more complete micronutrients but does not contain fish oil. It's best to take one of the two. However, if you take obimin supplements, make sure that you also meet the needs of fish oil intake from foods such as by consuming oily fish such as salmon, mackerel, sardines, and tuna, or taking other additional supplements that contain fish oil to ensure adequate intake of omega 3 or fish oil .
That's all, hope you can help
