Concerned women want to know exactly what it is that has prescribed in any instance, but when it comes to prenatal vitamins, the concerns are even more legitimate. Thankfully, LabDoor.com has a free service; their new prenatal vitamin review center. Thanks to this service, pregnant women are able to get real facts about the vitamins they have been prescribed or are taking over-the-counter (OTC).
Doctors practically all agree that prenatal vitamins should be taken by pregnant mothers but very few of these physicians can actually recommend which prenatal vitamin is the safest and most effective. LabDoor.com has done their research on this matter by doing the actual testing of the products. By logging into their website, inquiring mothers can get the information that they seek.
“It’s a service the FDA isn’t providing, yet we think helping women find high-quality, lab-tested prenatal vitamins before and during pregnancy is one of the most important things anyone can do for future generations,” says Neil Thanedar, CEO of LabDoor. “In the next year, an estimated four million babies will be born in the United States. One in nine of these babies will be born pre-term, a leading cause of developmental delays and neurological disabilities in children.”
Since so many babies are on the horizon, it is important for the expectant mothers to know how to address the nutrient deficiencies that cause many of the health issues in pre-term babies. One thing these mothers should be aware of is that the U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS) currently recommends that all women that are capable of becoming pregnant need to consume 400 µg of folic acid daily. They also must have adequate iron and calcium levels. To date, over 40% of women in the United States of childbearing age already use a daily prenatal supplement.
“Nearly all doctors recommend women to take prenatal vitamins, but few are able to recommend which products are the safest and most effective. LabDoor fills this informational gap with real data on the purity and label accuracy of these supplements,” says Thanedar.
This newest report from LabDoor was designed with pregnant women in mind. They want to provide the most useful data that could help the women find the best prenatal supplements that there are on the market. In order for women to know exactly what it is that they are consuming and in what quantities, LabDoor provides the information of dosage amounts with each product’s key active ingredients and potential contaminants on their site. They even score prenatal vitamins and list them in their “Quality” and “Value” rankings section of the website.
The NBJ reports that $34.8 billion was spent on supplements in the United States in 2013. Sixty-eight percent of adults in the United States have reported taking some type of dietary supplements; 40% of Americans regularly purchase multivitamins.
“It’s so hard to be certain that you’re buying a safe, effective dietary supplement. LabDoor is working to make it easier for people to find the best products for their health,” says Thanedar.
LabDoor is doing their utmost best to help future generations with their new prenatal vitamin review center. Women everywhere can now get the information that they need to keep their babies safe and healthy and growing to full potential.
