Even though I am not pregnant or nursing I still actually take my prenatal vitamins. First of all we had a ton left over from pregnancy and breastfeeding and secondly I find that now especially chasing after a toddler I could use the extra folic acid and iron that is in most prenatal vitamins. I had frequent nausea when I was pregnant and had a hard time swallowing the enormous prenatal vitamins that you have to. So when I was offered the chance to try an effervescent prenatal vitamin drink as opposed to taking vitamins I jumped at the chance since I knew many pregnant and nursing women may have the same problem that I did.
Prenatal Oxylent is a prenatal vitamin powder that you add to six ounces of water and stir. It is not gritty and you can even add ice to the drink. When I drink it it reminds me of something similar to a crystal light, but much healthier.
The unique effervescent delivery system offers exceptional absorption of all the vital nutrients the body needs. Prenatal Oxylent is recommended by the American Pregnancy Association and has even received the Albion Gold Medallion Status Award that recognizes this product for excellence in mineral formulation. It has no sugar and is sweetened with pure Stevia.
Stevia is made from the leaves of the stevia rebaudiana plant and is an artificial sweetener. It is sweeter than sugar, so less is needed to sweeten foods. It is safe to consume during pregnancy and may even help you to avoid gaining unnecessary weight. Of course only your doctor can determine how much artificial sweetener you should have so be sure to discuss it with your doctor before using especially if you are pregnant. ( Source: LiveStrong.com)
Prenatal Oxylent has no sugar, no gluten, no dairy, no soy, no herbs, no caffeine is non GMO and has nothing artificial in it. It comes in a light cranberry raspberry flavor and each package contains 30 packets. Each packet contains 5.8 grams of powder in it.
After using this for a while. I do like it a lot. It is a nice refreshing way to get the vitamins that you need. I find it especially useful if I am not feeling well in the morning or am nauseous. My only problems with it is I am not fond of the taste of Stevia. I would have preferred just a touch of real sugar instead. Also, I do find this very expensive if you plan on having a packet a day which is equal to a prenatal vitamin. It is $36.95 for a package that comes with 30 packets so basically a month's supply. However, I think as a pregnant or nursing mom Prenatal Oxylent is great to have around in your cabinet so that you have the option of having it or the horse pill everyday.
