Folic Acid – To promote healthy neural tube formation2

Women who consume healthy diets with adequate folate may reduce their risk of having a child with birth defects of the brain or spinal cord.2

OB Complete® prenatal dietary supplements contain 1 mg (1000 mcg) folic acid.1

DHA – To support brain health4

Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), an omega-3 fatty acid, is thought to be important in the support of optimal brain, eye, and nervous system development.4

OB Complete® Petite contains 200 mg of DHA and 14 mg of EPA.1

OB Complete® One contains 300 mg of DHA and 40 mg of EPA.1

IRON – To help reduce iron deficiency in mom5

Getting too little iron during pregnancy increases a woman’s risk of iron deficiency and her infant’s risk of low birth weight, premature birth, and low levels of iron.5

18.6% of pregnant women in the US are iron deficient.5

OB Complete® contains formulations of Ferronyl®* and Sumulate®† for tolerance and absorption, respectively.1

VITAMIN D – To support bone health

Vitamin D is thought to be important for fetal skeletal growth and maintaining healthy bones.6

In a study of 1814 women, more than one-third of women of childbearing age in the US had their vitamin D status below an optimal level.6

OB Complete® dietary supplements contain the recommended amount of vitamin D for pregnant women.7
