There is little doubt that women need more nutrition while pregnant than at any other time. They are, after all, eating for two. Still, to protect the fetus from excess levels of isolated nutrients, prenatal supplements provide
lower levels of vitamins and minerals. This creates an obvious question. How can a prenatal supplement help a woman get more nutrition if it provides less? The answer lies in whole food supplements, which is why One ‘n’ OnlyTM PreNatal provides over 30 times
more whole food value than any other one daily prenatal supplement.
As you probably know, Pure Essence was founded in 1998 by Jery Cochern, who developed the industry’s first food based multiples in the 1980’s. His experience and expertise in crafting these formulations is unequalled. He has reformulated Two ‘n’ OnlyTM PreNatal into a one daily formula because so many pregnant women are highly averse to taking more than one tablet or capsule a day.
In the original Two ‘n’ OnlyTM formula, the equivalent of one entire tablet was taken up by calcium and magnesium. Aside from calcium and magnesium, certain nutrients have been reduced slightly to make room for more of the whole food value (nearly 40% more) that is the nutrition that will best nourish both you and your fetus.
More specifically, there is now:
• 300 mg of spirulina and chlorella, instead of 150 mg of spirulina alone
• 25% more ginger juice extract, for support against nausea and morning sickness
• 50% more quinoa sprouts
• Twice as much red raspberry, avena sativa and nettles
• 3.5 times more Vitamin K, to enhance the uptake and usage of dietary calcium
• Twice as much high ORAC & phytonutrient berry complex
Unfortunately, it is simply not possible to get significant levels of calcium and magnesium in a one daily multiple. Some companies use calcium carbonate (very poorly absorbed) to give the impression of being a calcium rich supplement. We won’t do this, because we don’t want to give the impression that you’re getting the calcium you need when you’re really not.
If women feel they need a calcium and magnesium supplement (highly recommended) during pregnancy, they should use a scoop or two a day of our Ionic-FizzTM Calcium Plus (now, in two new delicious, non-tart flavors – Orange Vanilla and Mixed Berry). They will absorb this calcium and magnesium much better than anything in tablet or capsule form. In short, One ‘n’ OnlyTM PreNatal answers the dilemma of getting “more from less.” As always, the keys are whole foods and balance. This formula is yet another reasons that Pure Essence is the provider you can count on to deliver the very best.*
