Can I take Preconception Multi for Women during pregnancy?

How long should I take the preconception multi before trying to conceive?

It is recommended that you and your partner follow a preconception care plan for at least 3-4 months prior to conception. Preconception Multi for Women and Preconception Multi for Men are ideal to prepare for a healthy pregnancy.

How long should I take Prenatal Trimester One with Ginger?

It is best to take this formula as soon as you find out you're pregnant and keep taking it until your morning sickness subsides (usually around week 14-16). Most women will need a 2-month supply of Prenatal Trimester One with Ginger (2 packs of 60 ca

Can I take 2 capsules at once or should I split up the dose?

It is best to take one capsule twice daily - one with breakfast, one with lunch. This will help to reduce nausea throughout the day when taking Prenatal Trimester One with Ginger. With the other formula's, splitting up the dose can enhance nutrient a

I'm currently breastfeeding and preparing for my next pregnancy, should I continue to take Prenatal Trimester 2 & 3 Plus Breastfeeding or switch to Preconception Multi for Women?

You can take either formula during breastfeeding.

I'm currently breastfeeding and have just found out i'm pregnant, can I take Prenatal Trimester One with Ginger?

Yes, you can take Prenatal Trimester One with Ginger throughout the entire pregnancy and breastfeeding period. In fact, this may be recommended by your healthcare practitioner if you have certain health conditions such as haemochromatosis or hyperthy

Why isn't there any vitamin K in the prenatal formula's?

Vitamin K has very poor placental transfer which is why vitamin K is given to babies at birth. Vitamin K1 (phytomenadione) promotes blood clotting which is not usually something we want to do during pregnancy. As long as a woman is eating plenty of g

Why isn't there any vitamin A in these formula's?

The industry regulator requires all products containing vitamin A to have the following warnings on the label:. WARNING: If you are pregnant - or considering becoming pregnant - do not take vitamin A supplements without consulting your doctor or phar

My doctor has recommended that I have more than 500mcg of folate. How can I increase my folate intake with NaturoBest products?

Our preconception multivitamin contains 500mcg (the maximum limit in Australia) however if a health practitioner recommends it, you may take the Preconception Multi for Women and the Iron & Brain Support especially up until 6 weeks when the neural tu

Do you take the Birth Prep alongside the trimester 2&3 prenatals? Or just by themselves?

You take both.  The prenatal is a multivitamin, the Birth Prep is a herbal formulation to prepare your body for labour.

I’m currently taking trimester 2&3 capsules. Am I able to take the calcium and magnesium you offer as well?

Absolutely!  We recommend taking the cal-mag powder throughout pregnancy and breastfeeding – it’s best taken at night after dinner 😊

I accidentally ordered too many of the first trimester supplements. I wondered if I could exchange them for some more of trimester 2 & 3 instead please?

Unfortunately, we have a no returns policy but the good news is you can continue to take them in your second trimester – we just recommend adding an Iron & Brain Support as well to provide iron and extra choline 😊

Can you use the Stress & Sleep PM Formula during pregnancy at all?

We do not recommend Stress & Sleep PM Formula in the first trimester as lavender and chamomile are contraindicated at that stage.  Your medical herbalist may recommend you use this later in pregnancy from about 28 weeks onwards if needed. As an alter

Are your prenatals all natural or do they contain synthetic compounds?

All our supplements contain the most bioavailable ingredients that you can get, for example, active folate rather than folic acid and the vitamin B12 is hydroxocobalamin which is the same as the B12 found in food 😊

What is difference between the preconception and prenatal vitamins?

The main difference is in the levels of nutrients in the different formulations.  This is because during the preconception period and the different trimesters of pregnancy, there are different nutrient requirements.  We have formulated our supplement

Are the trimester 1 prenatal capsules the same size as the preconception capsules?

The trimester one capsules are slightly smaller than the preconception multi capsules.  They are the same width capsule but the preconception multi capsules are slightly longer.

If I am iron deficient in trimester 1, is it better for me to take the women’s preconception with iron in it instead of Prenatal Trimester One that doesn’t have iron?

You don’t really need the extra iron until week 16 but if you are deficient, you could take Iron & Brain Support twice a week (iron supplementation in the first trimester makes your morning sickness worse).

Is there a chance I can cancel my order for Prenatal Trimester One? I just found out today I am having a miscarriage.

Unfortunately, we do have a no cancellation policy because the orders are fulfilled by the warehouse as soon as they receive them (it’s not our warehouse, it’s outsourced). You can take the trimester one formula as a preconception multi though in pre

Is your packaging recyclable?

Yes, our packaging is 100% recyclable.

How much folate is in the preconception and prenatal vitamins?

All of our preconception and prenatal (pregnancy) vitamins contain 500mcg of folate in a daily dose of 2 capsules.

I've opened a blister and I found a capsule that is discoloured, a darker colour. Is that normal?

Yes that's normal!  Because we have ultra clean formulations, we don't use stabilisers that prevent discolouration when capsules are exposed to heat or humidity. Discolouration means it has absorbed moisture from the air (common with choline-containi

I ordered the first trimester vitamins from you & we then miscarried soon after. I’m wondering if I now am better off starting on the preconception vitamins and will have to put away the ones I’ve ordered?

Sorry to hear about your loss. What you could do is take the trimester one as a preconception multi but also add the Iron & Brain Support for extra choline and iron.

Are the preconception supplements safe to continue once pregnant as I have a full box I’d like to use up.

Yes you can take them during pregnancy, however we recommend switching to Prenatal Trimester One asap because it is higher in active folate and also the sooner you start it, the better for reducing morning sickness. You can then finish your box of th

Can I take Calcium & Magnesium Plus K2 & D3 or Iron & Brain Support while breastfeeding?

Yes you can!  Any products under the Pregnancy & Breastfeeding menu on our website are designed to be taken during pregnancy and/or breastfeeding.

Could I take the preconception after giving birth during breastfeeding?

Yes you can, but we recommend at least a two year gap between babies to allow your body time to recover from one birth and prepare for the next pregnancy.

Do you have any supplements for children?

We do have two products that can be taken by children – our Calcium & Magnesium Plus K2 & D3 (especially recommended if they have a low/no dairy diet or have issues sleeping) and our Ultimate Vitamin C & Bioflavonoids which contains zinc, vitamin C,

Do you recommend taking anything else on top of your prenatal supplements during pregnancy?

We recommend asking your health practitioner about other supplements you may need to take such as our Iron and Brain support until week 6 of pregnancy when the neural tube closes for the additional folinic acid and choline.  Throughout pregnancy, you

Does your Calcium & Magnesium Plus K2 & D3 contain soy?

We can’t say it’s “soy free” because it contains soy lecithin, however, this rarely affects people with soy allergies.

Can I open up the capsule and add to a smoothie?

Yes you can.  Alternatively, you could try adding to some yoghurt.

Does the preconception have 250mcg or 500mcg of folate? I’m confused.

There is 500mcg in a daily dose of two capsules (250mcg per capsule).

My doctor told me I have low progesterone levels and don’t ovulate. Do you have any products to help support ovulation?

Yes, we would recommend taking PMS Support & Antioxidant throughout the whole cycle (this will help promote ovulation and support progesterone levels while balancing oestrogen levels), alongside Mood, Memory & Libido from days 5 to 14 of your cycle.

Does the prenatal plus breastfeeding have calcium?

No it doesn't.  If you would like a calcium supplement, you could take our calcium and magnesium powder at night after dinner.

Is titanium dioxide is used in the manufacturing of any NaturoBest products?

There is no titanium dioxide or any other colourants in any of our products.

My Prenatal Trimester 2 & 3 Plus Breastfeeding capsules are different in colour and smell is this normal?

Yes we have recently reformulated and it now includes 400mg of choline in a daily dose 😊. We’ve also updated the excipients to cleaner ones – the MCT oil mixed with the high input of choline has produced a much darker powder.  You can view our produ

My Preconception Multi for Women looks marbled in colour, is this normal?

Yes that’s normal, it’s caused by the choline mixing with the MCT oil in our new reformulation 😊

Can I take the prenatal vitamins at night

You sure can although taking B vitamins at night may affect your sleep.  Just experiment with what works best for you.

I don't like the smell or taste of the products, can I have a refund?

We are unable to offer you a refund because you dislike vitamin smells or tastes.  What we can recommend is taking them with juice or opening up the capsule and adding to a smoothie or food.  We have some yummy recipes here - Recipes (naturobest.com)
