Prenatal vitamins with DHA.

PreNexa prenatal vitamins with plant-based DHA (docosahexaenoic acid)--a key omega-3 fatty acid--are available for vitamin and mineral supplementation during pregnancy, the postnatal period, and childbearing years. They also work as a gentle stool softener. The softgel capsules should not be taken by those who are also taking mineral oil. Also, ingestion of omega-3 fatty acids should be avoided in patients taking anticoagulants and in those with an inherited or acquired predisposition to bleeding. PreNexa vitamins additionally contain iron, and accidental overdose of iron-containing products is a leading cause of poisoning in children under age 6 years.
