During pregnancy, a lack of folic acid or ineffective folic acid metabolism increases the risk of neural tube defects (NTDs) and other birth defects in a woman’s developing baby. Problems with folic acid metabolism are also a known risk factor for depression and other adverse pregnancy outcomes.
EnBrace HR/MF contains a mix of bioactive folates and folic acid that works for all women -- even women whose bodies are unable to metabolize folic acid. This makes it the most effective prenatal vitamin for protection against NTDs and other birth defects. It has also been demonstrated in a recent clinical trial that EnBrace HR/MF is a safe and effective alternative option for the management of depression for women who are concerned about taking drug antidepressants during pregnancy or while breastfeeding.
Has been clinically shown to manage depression before, during, and after pregnancy as an alternative to drug antidepressants
Provides a diverse combination of folates, including L-methylfolate and folinic acid in addition to folic acid, to help lower the risk of neural tube defects and other birth defects
Reduces the risk for adverse pregnancy outcomes associated with certain maternal genetic mutations that affect folic acid metabolism
EnBrace HR/MF is the Only Prenatal Vitamin That Addresses Folate Deficiency to Prevent Birth Defects and Depression
In addition to the standard 1 mg of folic acid, EnBrace HR also contains:
A special folate formula that includes L-methylfolate (5.53 mg) and folinic acid (2.5 mg) Folate metabolites that can be used more quickly by the body and reduce the risk of neural tube and other birth defects in the baby and relieve depressive symptoms in the mother.
Omega-3 fatty acids phosphatidylserine, DHA, and EPA (23 mg) In addition to promoting brain development in the baby, aids in the treatment of depression.
