Is Prenatalgyn A Good Product?
Prenatalgyn is a prenatal vitamin that contains 22 key pregnancy vitamins and minerals. This prenatal vitamin is one of the best when it comes to providing the mother and child with all of the important ingredients before, during, and after pregnancy. Prenatalgyn comes in capsule form and is easy to swallow and digest. Prenatalgyn also contains 1 billion cfu of probiotics. This is one of the highest amounts of probiotics I have seen in a prenatal vitamin. With all of the new scientific research on probiotics you can see why this product contains probiotics. Probiotics have been found to provide a healthy gastrointestinal system, prevents heartburn, constipation, cramping, diahrrhea, nausea, and recently has been linked to help reduce childhood obesity and weight gain of the mother. Immune system of your infant will also benefit from this probiotic blend.

Essential Ingredients to Look For In a Prenatal Vitamin
When looking into prenatal vitamins there are a few important ingredients to make sure that your prenatal vitamin has. Important ingredients to look for are CoQ10, Ginger, Probiotics, at least (400mcg) of Folate or Folic Acid but preferably (800-1000mcg), Vitamin B6 (25-50mg), Calcium (750mg) or more, and (50mg-200mg) of DHA is a must. Choline and Insitol are nice additions and I strongly recommend them. Iron is also a must have ingredient and your vitamin should contain at least 25mg of it. Capsules, softgels, and liquids are better to take than tablets which are harder to swallow and harder to absorb.
Essential Ingredients Found In Prenatalgyn
Prenatalgyn contains just about all of the essential vitamins that I would recommend looking for in a prenatal vitamin. The only ingredient that I would have liked to seen added to this prenatal vitamin is Co-Q10. Co-Q10 has been found to help reduce the risk of preeclampsia during pregnancy. This ingredient has also been found to help promote healing after delivery.
Prenatalgyn also contains good percentages and amounts of essential ingredients. I didn’t see one ingredient that was below the recommended amount.
Overall Rating of Prenatalgyn
Prenatalgyn overall I would say is one of the best prenatal vitamins on the market. There is not much that you could do to make this product better. I would have liked to have seen Co-Q10 in this product, but other than that I don’t think I would change anything. You do have to take six capsules a day so for some people that may be hard, but you could break it up some and take three in the morning and three at night. As far as side effects I have not seen any reported for this product.
