The Research

The Neurological Health Foundation

Our prenatal was designed in partnership with Dr. James Adams, the Chief Medical Officer of the Neurological Health Foundation (NHF). The NHF's mission is to empower parents to have healthy children free of chronic health conditions.

“At NHF, we've analyzed 250 prenatal supplements and none fully meets our science-based recommendations. Many prenatal companies restrict themselves to just one capsule, which limits vitamins and minerals to insufficient levels. The healthynest prenatal is based on 20 years of research and development, and is the first to have the optimal level of every vitamin because at healthynest, we don’t compromise."

Frequently Asked Questions

The rigorous science and the quality behind it. When it comes to prenatal supplements, the unfortunate reality is that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not regulate this category. There are more than 250 prenatals in the market with tremendous variation in quality and quantity of nutrients. In partnership with the Neurological Health Foundation, we've analyzed all of them and we found that they range from anywhere between 10% and 90% of our recommendations, but none fully meets our science-based standards. Some supplements contain only folic acid and iron; few contain a full range of all of the 30 plus essential vitamins and minerals, but often they don't have nearly enough of them. Many prenatal companies restrict themselves to just one capsule, which greatly limits the amount of vitamins and minerals that you can put into it to get all the nutrients that a woman needs.
Prenatal supplements are intended to supplement a healthy diet to ensure that adequate amounts of vitamins and minerals are consumed. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has established Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA’s) for total vitamin/mineral intake from food and supplements, but they have not established recommendations for prenatal supplements. This results in insufficient vitamin/mineral supplementation for many women, and hence does not fully protect them or their children from pregnancy complications and health problems. Therefore, together with the Chief Scientific Officer of the Neurological Health Foundation, we have created our own set of recommendations for prenatal supplements. Our recommendations are based primarily on four sources: 1) FDA’s Recommended Daily Allowances for pregnant women, which are estimated to meet the needs of 97.5% of healthy pregnant women. 2) FDA’s Tolerable Upper Limit, which is the maximum amount of vitamins/minerals that can be safely consumed without any risk of health problems. 3) National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), which evaluates the average intake of vitamins and minerals by women ages 20-40 years in the US 4) Research studies on vitamin/mineral deficiencies or vitamin/mineral supplementation during pregnancy, and the effect on pregnancy, birth, and child health problems. In summary, the RDA establishes minimum recommended levels of vitamin/mineral intake from all sources, and the NHANES establishes the average intake from foods. The difference is what needs to be consumed in a supplement, on average. However, since people vary greatly in the quality of their diet, and since most vitamins and minerals have a high Tolerable Upper Limit, we generally recommend more than the difference between the RDA and the average NHANES. Vitamins generally have a larger Tolerable Upper Limit than do minerals. In some cases our recommendations exceed the RDA, based on additional research studies and clinical trials which demonstrate an increased need for those nutrients during pregnancy, and benefits from higher levels of those vitamins and minerals.
The Healthynest formula has an advanced form of folic acid called methytetrahydrafolic acid, that is the most bio available and biologically active form of folate. Why does this matter? Because up to 40% of women carry a gene variation that interferes with our ability to properly absorb and metabolize standard folic acid. Therefore, the most common prenatal supplements might not be as effective for you. That’s why the Healthynest formula has methytetrahydrafolic acid, that is the most bio available and biologically active form of folate.Folic acid and also food folate are not biologically active and need to be converted to the metabolically active 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF). This happens through a multi-steps process where the enzyme methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) plays a key role. Some individuals, due to their unique genetic patterns and expression, have forms of this enzyme that do not produce adequate or effective MTHFR. By providing methyltetrahydrofolate in its nutritionally active form, we bypass these steps and allow the body to absorb and metabolize it efficiently.
During pregnancy, folic acid is the cornerstone for the development of your baby’s brain and nervous system. Folic acid is also key in the process to develop healthy blood cells in your baby, well beyond the first trimester. It also has benefits to your health, since folate is essential to metabolize other vitamins and nutrients, helping you prevent anemia and maintain a healthy metabolic function throughout pregnancy. In adults, adequate intakes of folate may protect against certain cancers, including those of the breast, gut, lung and pancreas. This is likely because of folate’s role in gene expression — controlling when genes are turned on or off. Low folate levels can cause this process to go awry, increasing the risk of abnormal cell growth. Folic acid can also contribute to heart health by lowering homocysteine, an inflammatory molecule linked to the development of heart disease.
The science and our prenatal expert Dr. James Adams (Chief Scientific Officer of the Neurological Health Foundation) agree: it is ideal if you can start taking a complete, high quality prenatal to prime your body for pregnancy at least 3 month before you start trying to conceive. Most women have a chronic depleted state of essential nutrients such as folic acid, iron, DHA and Choline. Your body needs time to restore and prepare, and 3 months is considered to be an ideal timeframe to prime for pregnancy.
Even though in theory we get what we need from a balanced, healthy diet, the reality is that during pregnancy the nutritional needs increase so much that it is virtually impossible to supply all of what you need from diet alone. That’s why prenatal supplementation is so often medically recommended. Furthermore, science and nutritional surveys show that American women are already below the needed levels of key nutrients during pregnancy. For example, when you're pregnant, you need twice the amount of iron you required before conceiving. And yet, close to 50% of pregnant women don't get enough iron. Another crucial nutrient is Folic Acid, yet up to 90% of women don’t have adequate folate levels for maximum protection against neural tube defects. In essence, this is a time where creating a strong safety net makes sense, not only for your baby, but also for your own health during and after your pregnancy.
The form of Iron in the healthynest prenatal is Ferrous Bisglycinate Chelate, which is a highly stable form of iron that is readily bioavailable with fewer side-effects than the more commonly used iron salts. “Chelated” iron has been enhanced to allow it to pass through the digestive system without breaking apart. Therefore the chelated iron gets carried into the cells—along with the amino acid that it is bound to—for more efficient absorption and reduced side effects such as constipation.
The DHA and Fish oils contained in our prenatals comes from a high-quality fish oil, which means that when the capsule dissolves, your body will start to digest it and absorb it. This is a natural process, and if nothing else, it’s proof that these key nutrients are going to do their job to give you and your baby what you need to help develop a healthy brain, so consider it a reminder of the good job you are already doing as a mom!
The healthynest prenatal is not vegan. After careful consideration and consultation with our doctors and scientific experts, the consensus was that to provide the critical brain building benefits of DHA. it is essential to have a trusted and well documented source of high potency and high purity DHA. At this stage the DHA from responsibly sourced fish provides the best quality and peace of mind that the benefits we claim are the benefits you will get from DHA. Therefore we have decided to include it in our prenatal, instead of vegan-based sources that do not yet meet our standards. If over time the science and experience from vegan sources of DHA evolves up to the high benchmarks we have set up for our products, we will certainly consider switching.
