Why should I take a multivitamin during pregnancy? Don’t I get enough vitamins in a balanced diet?
Many vitamins and minerals are unfortunately lacking in a modern pregnancy diet. Every diet is different so you may or may not be receiving sufficient amounts of vitamins in a well balanced diet.The most important question we answered during the formulation process is, ‘what nutrients do the majority of pregnancies lack?’ This is the most important because without the proper doses of essential nutrients, the chances of having a healthy baby overall decrease. Taking a quality prenatal multivitamin like bebe-o nourishes you and your baby with not only vitamins and minerals, but also with antioxidants and digestive enzymes daily. A prenatal multivitamin is a nutritional insurance policy.
When should I start taking bebe-O Prenatal Vitamins?
From the moment conception occurs (the fusion of an ovum with a sperm), adequate amounts of Folic Acid need to be readily available. For that reason, if you are planning your pregnancy, it is very important that you start taking prenatal vitamins 1-2 months before you begin trying to conceive.
I am suffering from nausea and morning sickness. Does bebe-O really take care of that?
When formulating this product, special attention has been dedicated to the relief of morning sickness. We have been receiving numerous thank-you emails from expectant moms about the relief of their morning sickness and nausea. The formula incorporates digestive enzymes AND ginger root which have been proven to help aid digestion. In fact; with no yeast, wheat, milk, salt, preservatives or animal products you are likely to feel healthier just for taking these vitamins. It is recommended you take 2 capsules in the morning with breakfast and 2 capsules in the evening with dinner.
I cannot face swallowing huge, dry tablets. Is bebe-O easy to take?
Yes! At bebe-O we have thought of everything. Instead of squeezing all the nutrients into 1 or 2 huge capsules, we have split it into 4 smaller capsules for you to take daily. It is recommended you take 2 in the morning with breakfast and 2 in the evening with dinner. Plus, it goes down with no taste and no smell!
My healthcare provider has recommended I take a prenatal vitamin. What do I need in addition to taking bebe-O?
We have made it really simple by putting all the recommended vitamins and essential minerals you need into one easy-to-take formula. You only need to add a sensible diet including protein, whole grains and plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables.
What makes bebe-O Prenatal Vitamins different from other brands?
Quality – the ingredients, dosing and formula are put together in such a manner that ensures the best possible absorption and consumption by the body. bebe-O’s Multivitamin & Mineral supplement is so whole, no other vitamin or mineral supplements need to be taken during pregnancy. Our product is 100% natural, made from raw whole-food ingredients, has no artificial or synthetic additives, is Vegan certified and has been scientifically tested. It includes four different categories of nutrition which are all beneficial for a growing baby: vitamins, minerals, digestive enzymes and antioxidants. At bebe-O, we go beyond just vitamins and minerals. When it comes to your pregnancy, quality really does matter.
Are there any possible side effects to taking bebe-O when pregnant?
There are no side effects to taking bebe-O. Vitamins and minerals are essential to a healthy body. The bebe-O formula is made only with 100% all-natural ingredients which are safe and have no side-effects whatsoever. Furthermore, this formula is hypo-allergenic, meaning it does not contain any peanuts, wheat, lactose or gluten.
I am a not a Vegan. Is this multivitamin suitable only for Vegetarians and Vegans?
No, bebe-o is suitable for all pregnancies. Our prenatal vitamin formula contains no animal products or by-products and is certified and approved by the Vegan Society. This means you are guaranteed that all ingredients are derived from plant source. It is especially important for those on a Vegan diet to ensure that their diet is topped up with the essential vitamins and minerals which are included in bebe-O’s balanced formula. If you are not vegetarian or vegan, you receive the added benefit of consuming the purest ingredients.
Does bebe-O include Omega-3?
No. The only omega-3 suitable for Vegans is sourced from seaweed (kelp) and is available only in liquid form, thus we are unable to incorporate it into a vegetarian capsule. The recommended intake of DHA during pregnancy is 300 mg a day — the amount you’d get if you ate about 5 to 10 ounces of cold water fish, such as salmon or trout, every week — but few Americans get that much from their diet. Ask your healthcare provider if he/she thinks you could benefit from a DHA or other omega-3 supplement.
What guarantee of satisfaction do you offer?
We have every confidence in our product and therefore offer a no-quibble, 30-day 100% money-back guarantee if you are not delighted with the benefits of our product.
Are there any GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) in bebe-O?
Absolutely not! The use of GMOs in our diet is highly controversial, particularly concerning unborn infants. Our products are 100% natural, just as nature intended.
I have gluten allergies. Is this product suitable for me to take?
Bebe-o is completely gluten free. All the contents are derived from Mother Nature and are completely hypoallergenic.
Will bebe-O help me avoid anemia?
Yes, expectant moms need to take an iron supplement to compensate for the production of extra blood. Anemia is a common condition during pregnancy which can easily be avoided by taking our daily all-inclusive supplement that contains 25 mg of Iron.
I have seen cheaper prenatal vitamins on the market. Aren’t they all the same?
The vitamin industry is a good case in point for getting what you pay for. There are cheaper imitations with bulk added in place of the highest quality ingredients that we insist on. Although the list of ingredients may be similar, the product strength and quality will not be. Most mothers consider it worth that little extra to give their child the best possible start in life, even before their arrival!
Do I need to take extra folic acid along with bebe-O?
Our prenatal supplement includes a carefully balanced 600 mg of folic acid as part of our medically researched formula. This is 150% of the recommended Daily Value. Rather than taking all your vitamin and mineral supplement requirements individually, our supplement has packed them all into one carefully measured and balanced serving.
I heard that Vitamin A may be dangerous if taken in excess by pregnant women?
The key to this question is right there in the words “in excess”. Those creating their own regimen of vitamins and supplements may under or over-estimate what is required. bebe-O is specifically prepared to meet all your requirements – no more and no less. It contains 4000 IU of betatene (naturally occurring Vitamin A blend) which is 80% of the recommended Daily Value. This amount has been proven to be safe for all pregnancy diets.
Secondly, medical professionals recommend that Vitamin A should be taken in the form of beta-carotene, found naturally in fruits and vegetables, which is exactly what we have included in bebe-O. Vitamin A from animal products should definitely be avoided.
The Vitamin A blend says that it is in the form of Betatene, what is this?
Although most people have heard of beta-carotene, a number of other carotenes exist including alpha-carotene, gamma-carotene, lycopene, zeaxanthin, and lutein. While not all of the carotenes convert to vitamin A, all provide excellent antioxidant protective benefits. Most supplements contain just beta-carotene and in many cases, the source is not natural but is synthesized. Betatene is a naturally occurring blend of carotenes, which includes beta-carotene, alpha-carotene, cryptoxanthin, zeaxanthin and lutein. Betatene is derived from D. salina algae and is grown on the world’s largest cultivated algae farm, located in Whyalla, Australia.
