We all know how important vitamins and minerals are especially during pregnancy. Unfortunately taking a big pill can be hard when you’re suffering from nausea. Prenatal Oxylent by Vitalah solves that problem. It’s a prenatal daily multivitamin supplement drink. No more having to choke down pills. You simply mix the powder into a glass of water and enjoy! Here’s a little from Dr. Audra Foster, a licensed, board-certified doctor of Naturopathic Medicine.
“Many of my patients experience nausea, sensitive palates, and difficulties swallowing pills, and/or keeping pills down while pregnant—which makes taking the prenatal vitamins they crucially need especially challenging. That’s why I recommend an effervescent prenatal multivitamin instead of traditional pill-form prenatal vitamins. You simply add the effervescent powder to a glass of water or juice and stir to create a tasty sparkling drink that provides the nutrients required for a healthy pregnancy. An added benefit is that drinking an effervescent prenatal multivitamin everyday also helps women stay hydrated during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Effervescence also delivers nutrients more effectively than pills. Many of us do not break down pills efficiently. But unlike pills, an effervescent drink does not need to be broken down by stomach acids in order to be absorbed—delivering better absorption
(and therefore better results) than pills.”
Prenatal Oxylent, which is the official prenatal vitamin of the American Pregnancy Association, contains key nutrients you need while pregnant or breastfeeding. I really like the idea of a multivitamin drink. Not only am I getting the supplements I need but I’m also taking in extra fluid which is also important during pregnancy. I received the multivitamin drink in a sparking cranberry raspberry favor. It’s naturally sweetened with Stevia, no added sugar. You simply add the mix to 6 or 8 oz of water, add ice and mix.
It did take a bit of stirring to get all the mix to dissolve but once it did, the taste was nice and light. I sometimes have a hard time drinking plain water so this was perfect! I drank mine while I walked on the treadmill. I will admit I, at times, fall asleep at night before taking my vitamin so I loved being able to drink this during the day. I also liked that the mix comes in individual packets so I can just throw one into my purse and mix the drink while I’m out. Oxylent is easily absorbed so I know it’s not just sitting in my stomach for hours. I really appreciate the fact that all of Vitalah’s products are third party tested to ensure quality.
