Optimal Prenatal is designed for those seeking additional support.*
Infertility, recurrent miscarriage, and pregnancy complications are all too common. Women who have experienced these may choose to support their healthy pregnancy with Optimal Prenatal.*
They choose Optimal Prenatal due to the increased amount of essential vitamins and minerals.
Low levels of selenium can be associated with infertility, recurrent miscarriages and pregnancy complications.
"The Recommended Dietary Intake of selenium for pregnant women is 60 mg/day and most interventional studies make use of daily doses of up to 200 μg selenium in its elemental form (selenomethionine).[14–17] Supplemental doses up to 200 μg of the mineral should not cause adverse effects, even if temporarily exceeded, since the selenium upper tolerable intake (UL) for this group is established as 400 μg (5.1 μmol) selenium/day."*
If you'd like a typical RDA amount of selenium as you're a healthy woman without any history of pregnancy complications, consider Prenatal Essentials.*
Prenatal Essentials uses 50 mcg of selenium per serving. We use slightly less than the RDA in Prenatal Essentials as healthy women have a healthy diet and lifestyle. They obtain sufficient selenium from food in addition to the prenatal supplement.*
