The Alpha and Omega of Prenatal Vitamins
Don't worry, your baby's gonna be brilliant, especially if your prenatal multivitamin contains the nutrients that are clinically shown to support fetal brain development. UpSpring Prenatal+ is a complete multivitamin that also includes omega-3 DHA and choline (in the form of Alpha GPC), which are clinically shown to support fetal brain development.* Alpha GPC is a highly bioavailable form of choline and the only form that crosses the blood-brain barrier to nourish your baby's growing brain.* It also helps to enhance DHA absorption.* This formula also contains the natural form of vitamin B9, folate, instead of synthetic folic acid. Just one small tablet plus one easy-to-swallow softgel per day. You get 100% of the daily value of 13 essential nutrients, plus brain-building omega-3 and Alpha GPC. Best of all, we've added non-constipating iron, probiotics and an herbal blend to make our prenatal easy on the stomach, so no tummy upsets!

Folate or Folic Acid in Your Prenatal Vitamin? 

Most pregnant women are aware of the need for either folate or folic acid during pregnancy to prevent neural tube defects in babies. Both are shown to be beneficial, so what's the difference? 

Folate is the natural form of the vitamin otherwise known as B9. It is found in dark leafy greens, black-eyed peas, lentils, and other foods. Folic acid is its synthetic counterpart (it was invented in a lab in the 1940s) and is added to fortified grain products. Some studies suggest that folic acid can negatively impact health in the long run. 

At UpSpring, "no artificial anything" is our mantra, and that includes folic acid. We use only the natural form of B9, folate. Women who are pregnant (or planning to become pregnant) should aim to get at least 800 mcg of folate per day from diet and supplementation.

Smart Science For Smart and Healthy Babies

Alpha GPC for Baby's Brain  

Choline is a critical nutrient during pregnancy, since it is required for healthy fetal brain development.*  The amount of choline a pregnant mother gets can influence her baby's future learning, cognitive function, and memory.*  Research suggests that insufficient choline can have negative, lifelong effects on brain function. The adequate intake (AI) for pregnant women for choline is 480 mg. (Lactating moms need even more; their AI is set at 520 mg. Research shows that babies who breastfeed exclusively for 6 months get 120 mg per day from their mother's milk.)

Alpha GPC is a potent source of highly bioavailable choline.* It provides more choline than phosphatidylcholine or soy lecithin, two more common forms of this nutrient. The choline in Alpha GPC penetrates the blood-brain barrier to nourish baby's rapidly developing brain.* Alpha GPC is in phospholipid form, the same type of phospholipid that is a major component of cell membranes. This makes it easy for the body to recognize, and is thus more absorbable.* In addition, it amplifies the amount of omega-3 absorbed by the body.*

Omega-3 Fats For Motor Skills And More

Numerous studies demonstrate the importance of omega-3 fats during pregnancy.

FAQs

Yesterday. If that's not possible, it's a good idea to start taking UpSpring Prenatal+ as soon as you learn you're pregnant. In fact, if you are planning to become pregnant in the next few months, it's not too soon to start. 

We've included probiotics, which have been clinically shown to promote healthy digestion and gut health. We also added a blend of the most proven herbal remedies for sensitive stomachs, which include ginger, peppermint and fennel. To top it off, we took care to select iron that's non-constipating to make our prenatal incredibly easy on your stomach.

We've included Lactobacillus Acidophilus, which has been shown to support overall digestive health and comfort. 

Folate is the natural form of a vitamin otherwise known as B9. Folic acid is its synthetic counterpart (it was invented in a lab in the 1940s) and some studies suggest folic acid can negatively impact health in the long term. Folate, however, is found naturally in foods and is beneficial. It is one of the best-documented ways to prevent neural tube defects during pregnancy.* Women who are pregnant (or planning to become pregnant) should get at least 800 mcg of folate per day from diet and supplementation.

Alpha GPC has only become available for inclusion in supplement formulas very recently. When it comes to brain health, Alpha GPC is a game-changer, because not only does it cross the blood-brain barrier to help nourish the rapidly developing fetal brain, but it also boosts absorption of omega-3 DHA.

The challenge in formulating a prenatal multi is that you have to fit a lot in without making the pill too large to swallow. The small tablet contains the multivitamin portion of the formula and doesn't upset sensitive tummies. We paired up the omega-3 and the Alpha GPC (choline) in a small, easy-to-swallow softgel because they work together to enhance the beneficial effects of both. In addition, iron oxidizes fish oil, so we couldn't include both iron and Omega-3 in one tablet without losing the effectiveness of the DHA.

UpSpring Prenatal+ gives you a great start on your daily choline requirement. You get 100 mg Alpha GPC per day. Choline is another one of those nutrients like iron that is fairly easy to get in food. If you're eating well and choosing choline-rich foods every day (such as eggs, shrimp, cod, salmon, beef, dairy products, certain legumes, and cruciferous veggies) you should have no trouble getting the recommended adequate intake.
