In Topic: gluten-free Prescription Prenatal Vitamins

16 July 2008 - 03:15 PM

I have been taking Duet DHA ec prenatal vitamins for about 6 months. The company confirmed that they are gluten free. Each dose is a prenatal vitamin tablet and an enteric-coated softgel capsule. The capsule contains DHA and EPS (omega-3 fatty acids). I have found that they do not cause nausea. I do, however, take them right before I go to bed. Here is a link that shows a comparison of the nutrients in a dozen or so prenatal vitamins: http://www.duetdha.c...rison_chart.pdf

Whatever vitamin you choose, make sure it has plenty of folic acid. Since many of the folate-enriched foods (cereals, breads, etc) are off limits, you may not be getting much folate from your diet.
