New Thrive Prenatal Vitamin High Folic Acid Content Becomes Crucial As Birth Defects Rise
Thrive Prenatal Vitamin contains two times more folic acid than most US multivitamins. This special formulation is for women who are deficient in the vitamin and who may need more folic acid to help meet the needs of the developing embryo during the pregn
A recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association calls attention to the most recent incidents of infants born with neural tube defects in Washington State.(1) The study investigated an excessive number of anencephaly births reported by the Washington State Department of Health in August 2012. The study put emphasis on the importance of folic acid supplements for women of childbearing age to lessen the risk of neural tube defects. It's important to know that the neural tube closes very early in pregnancy, so it is necessary to start taking folic acid at the beginning of a pregnancy, or even better, before conception.
Most U.S. multivitamins have at least 400 micrograms (mcg) of folic acid which can be enough for most women who are not pregnant. Thrive has 800 mcg folic acid, that's two times more folic acid than many US multivitamins. Thrive is specifically formulated for women who may need more folic acid to help meet the needs of the developing embryo, particularly those of childbearing age who are deficient in the vitamin, and most specially pregnant women and those who are nursing.
In addition to 800 mcg folic acid, Thrive can also provide the other vitamins and minerals needed to protect the health of the mother and the growing baby. Thrive prenatal vitamin is also high in iron, Vitamins A, C, D, B6 and B12 plus calcium, zinc and other micronutrients needed for a healthy pregnancy.

Thrive is now available in Amazon in 90-capsule bottles, good for a 3-month supply. As part of its excellent customer service, Thrive comes with a 60-day money back guarantee.
