Yup another Prenatal Vitamin Question: I got the doctor to write a RX for Prenate DHA. Do I need to supplement with anything else?<br><br>
Each Gel contains:<br>
Vit C 85 mg<br>
Vit D3 200IU<br>
Vit E 10 UI<br>
Vit B6 25mg<br>
Folate 1 mg<br>
(L-methyfolate as Metafolin600mcg)<br>
(Folic Acid USP 400 mcg)<br>
Vitamin B12 12mcg<br>
Calcium 140mg<br>
Iron 27 mg<br>
Magnesium 45mg<br>
Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) 300 mg<br>
(from 300 mg omega-3 fatty acids)<br><br><br>
So I noticed this is missing some vitamins. No Vitamin A either.... And I seen the Folic Acid seems lower than alot of others. Should I supplement? OR Is this ok, OR should I go with a different Vitamin all together?
