From the day you take a pregnancy test to the day you bring your baby home, a variety of factors will affect your physical and mental health.

Prenatal vitamins are one of the easiest and most effective ways to reduce birth defects and nurture your body before and during pregnancy. Unlike big-box pharmacies, the JJ’s team works closely with you and your physician to ensure that you receive the highest quality supplements and the best care before, during and after your pregnancy.

Folic acid and iron are two of the most important nutrients for a pregnancy, and more often than not, your diet alone doesn’t have the necessary amounts. Without enough iron, iron deficiency anemia can occur, which can then spur preterm delivery and low birth weight.

Folic acid is a B-vitamin, and it’s an essential part of your pregnancy even before you conceive as well as during the early weeks of your pregnancy. This super-vitamin can help reduce your baby’s risk of spina bifida and anencephaly by up to 70 percent. In addition, your body tends to absorb synthetic folic acid better than the natural folic acid found in food, which means supplements can deliver better results that diet alone.
