• Well I guess they would be as the are filled with all things good for you. However if you regularly eat a broad range of foods, including meat, dairy products, fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes, your diet will provide almost all the nutrients you need.
  • yes, you can take it even if you are not pregnant, but it contains alot of folic acid. You usually get enough folic acid in your diet through eating greens, Broccoli is the best one. so, basically, its pointless, paying the extra money for a multi vitamin, with extra folic acid, when you don't really need it.
  • yes prenatal vitamins are good for your hair and skin.. it also have lots or iron so you wont get anemic. they taste really bad and the smell its horrible but its really good for you, pregnant or not.
  • A normal MultiVitamin and Mineral pill is just as good.
  • I have taken them for the purpose of better hair and it does work. I makes your nails grow faster also. Prenatal vitamins are really good to take even if you're not preg because it gives you everything you need.
  • I was prescribed pre-natal vitamins because regular multi-vitamins made me vomit. Maybe the formulation of the pre-natals is gentler to digest or is time released or something to that extent.
  • After reading your comments to others answers, it would be ok if you are just finishing off a pack of tablets. Otherwise I wouldn't do it long term, as some nutrients are stored and can build up to toxic levels (like iron, which is in abundance in your tablets). Since you have miscarried, your body could probably use the extra vitamins anyway. Sorry for your loss.
  • I'm not a doctor, so I can't answer for anyone but myself. I was told to take pre-natal vitamins after a severe illness made half my hair fall out and I lost some of my nails. The pre-natals definitely helped everything get back to normal.
  • You're going to love hearing about the nutritional supplements that work so amazingly well for EVERYONE (prenatal up to geriatric ages). Simply put, the products work so well the business opportunity is awesome and it's allowed me to stay at home now with my family for the past year. Call for more information.

  • I've seen them used for someone who has had a stomach stapling operation.
  • Well, I've taken prenatal vitamins since I was about 14. It's really good for your skin, hair, and nails, the only thing you have to worry about is the iron and folic acid intake. I'm anemic so I asked my doctor about simply taking the pills instead of my prescribed iron supplements and he gave me the go ahead. But too much iron and folic acid can really mess you up, so you need to look at your own diet before making the decision to switch over to the prenatal side. If you get alot of dark leafy veggies(like we all SHOULD, but let's face it, I'm in college so that's not gonna happen) and eat alot of things high in Iron, you should probally opt for those One-a-day tablets. However, if you are nutritionally deficiant like all of us students are, then you should give them a try, but try to get ones with low FA and Iron until you know how you react to them.
