Nonprescription prenatal vitamins may be more potent
Prescription prenatal vitamins may have lower doses of key ingredients like vitamin A, vitamin D and calcium than nonprescription alternatives, a recent study suggests. Even though prenatal vitamins are widely recommended to pregnant women to help meet the nutrient needs for mothers and babies, women may struggle to choose the right supplement because labeling is inconsistent and the amount of the active ingredients varies widely from one product to the next, researchers note in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
