More plant-based DHA1-7

  • Plant-Based DHA. Nexa® Plus prenatal vitamins offer 350 mg of plant-based DHA—more than many other single gel capsule prescription prenatal vitamins taken once a day1-7
  • No fishy aftertaste. Unlike many other products that contain DHA, the DHA in Nexa® Plus is plant-based—it is derived from microalgae, and contains no fish oil,1 which can have a fishy smell or aftertaste8
  • Recommended levels. Nexa® Plus helps to ensure that mom’s daily DHA intake is at least 200 mg—the amount recommended by many experts during pregnancy and while breastfeeding9-11
  • Key omega-3 fatty acid. DHA, or docosahexaenoic acid, is a key omega-3 fatty acid found throughout the body that helps with the development of baby’s brain and vision9-11
  • FDA recognized. DHA in Nexa® Plus has been granted Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) status for use in infant formula by the FDA,12 and is used in nearly all infant formulas in the US13
  • Quality manufacturing. You can feel confident knowing that the plant-based DHA in Nexa® Plus is manufactured under US regulations following manufacturing standards13
  • Renewable and sustainable source. Plant-based DHA comes from algae—a renewable and sustainable source that is grown in specially designed tanks13; fish-based DHA is obtained from fish that have eaten algae
  • No ocean-borne contaminants. Plant-based DHA avoids the worries you may have about ocean-borne contaminants or toxins, such as mercury, that may be associated with fish-based DHA13
  • Avoids fish or shellfish allergies. If you are one of the many moms-to-be who has a concern about fish or shellfish allergies, one of the most widespread allergies in the US,14 plant-based DHA may be the right choice for you because it avoids those risks15

 Folic acid

For more information on
folic acid and pregnancy, see
this Folic Acid Fact Sheet
from the NIH
  • Due to its role in the synthesis of DNA and other critical cell components, folate (the common term for folic acid) is especially important during phases of rapid cell growth, such as during the first trimester16
  • In addition to a healthy diet, folic acid taken before and during early pregnancy helps reduce the risk for birth defects of the brain and spine called neural tube defects (NTDs)17

Biotin

  • Contains 250 mcg of biotin, an essential component of enzymes that metabolize carbohydrates and fats18

 Docusate calcium

  • Nexa® Plus prenatal vitamins contain docusate calcium, a gentle stool softener, for added comfort during pregnancy1

Vitamin D3

  • Nexa® Plus provides 800 IU of vitamin D3, an essential vitamin to support mom and developing baby’s skeletal health1,19

Iron

  • Anemia, or low red blood cell levels, is common during pregnancy, so the recommended amount of daily iron intake increases during pregnancy20
  • Nexa® Plus contains 29 mg of iron to support the formation of healthy red blood cells1,20
