Thorne Research Basic Prenatal is a complex vitamin-mineral formula designed for pregnant and lactating women which provides essential nutrients for mother’s health and normal foetal development. It contains ingredients with a clear, confirmed positive impact on the mother’s and child’s body – vitamin D3, iron, iodine and active form of methylated folic acid – 5MTHF and other vitamins, micro- and macroelements which support normal functioning of the body.
Pregnancy and lactation are states of increased requirements of the female body of body-building nutrients, vitamins and minerals. Elevated progesterone levels in pregnant women decrease the bioavailability of nutrients and a developing foetus increases the demand of the mother’s body for these compounds. Consequently, adequate intake of vitamins, micro- and macroelements is necessary during the preconception period and pregnancy and until the end of the lactation period.
Methylated folic acid is an active, safe form of folic acid. Folates provide one-carbon groups which are required for the synthesis of nucleic acids and proteins. They catalyse blood formation processes, are involved in the formation of neurolemma and primarily protects the foetus against the development of birth defects of the central nervous system (neural tube defects). Supplementation is recommended in the preconception period and till the end of pregnancy. Requirements for folates increase significantly during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate is an active form of folic acid which is directly engaged in folate metabolism. It is estimated that as many as 30-40% of the European population has a mutation of the MTHFR gene. Such enzymatic block causes a decrease in the conversion of folic acid into its active methylated form which results in its accumulation in the body. More and more data indicates that non-metabolised folic acid has a harmful effect on the body. Its accumulation may lead to, among other things, neurodegeneration, problems with carrying a pregnancy to term and development of birth defects.
Vitamin D3 is a steroid compound synthesised in the epidermis and dermis from provitamin D3 (7-dehydrocholesterol) under the influence of UV-B radiation. Using creams with UV filters, air pollution, the lack of exposure to the sun and ageing processes of the skin inhibit significantly percutaneous synthesis of vitamin D3 and thus cause its deficiency. Vitamin D3 maintains the body’s calcium-phosphate balance and is therefore critical to optimal mineral density of bones and prevents osteopenia and osteoporosis. It has immunomodulatory properties because it activates genes which encode proteins with an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effect.
Proper vitamin D3 supplementation reduces the incidence of bacterial vaginosis which is associated with many complications of pregnancy. Pregnant and breast feeding women are especially at risk of increased calcium loss. Because of that, the administration of vitamin D3 is recommended and justified.
Iron is a common deficient microelement in pregnant women. Anaemia caused by iron deficiency may result in premature delivery. In the period of breastfeeding, it may increase the risk of anaemia in the child and have a negative impact on its psychomotor development. Pregnant and breastfeeding women belong to an at-risk group of anaemia caused by iron deficiency. Optimal iron metabolism depends from, among other things, magnesium and vitamin B6 which are found in the formula.
Iodine should be taken by pregnant and lactating women in greater amounts due to increased activity of deiodinases, demands of the foetus and iodine release into mother’s milk. Iodine deficiencies contribute to thyroid goitres, increase the risk of neurological disorders and abnormal myelination in newborns, foetal hypothyroidism or even miscarriage. The amount of iodine in mother’s milk depends from reserves of this elements in the thyroid and its dietary intake and supplementation. Normal thyroid function is also supported in the formula by the content of selenium, zinc and B vitamins.
To sum up, Thorne Research Basic Prenatal is a dietary supplement which allows you to meet requirements of essential nutrients during pregnancy and breastfeeding. The product is recommended to women planning pregnancy, during pregnancy and lactation for optimal growth of a child and mother’s health.
