    Pre-natail vitamans

    I'm not sure if I spelled the title correctly but oh well. Anyway, my wife has pre-natail vitamins cause she is pregnant. I was reading the lable on that mofo and it seems to be a very good multi-vitamin!!!! I mean have you read the lable on these things??? They are packed with everything! My question is-is it safe for guys to take them??? There wasnt anything out of the ordinary about these vitamins that say that they are harmful to a guy so I'm assuming there okay right? Or will I grow some knockers

    I doubt they would do any harm to you. You can buy them OTC in any drug store now.

    I got some because I'm trying to grow my hair and it's amazing how fast my hair is growing.

    Congrats on the baby

    Its hard to say without knowing what brand you are referring to... or what the actual ingredients are - but they, more than likely, have a high level of essential fatty acids (been know to help with the neural development) which are deffinitly a good addition to your diet... fuk, Barry Sears thinks he can cure cancer with right balance of EFA's

    No, they won't harm you. Prenatal vitamins are designed to help women achieve optimal vitamin and mineral support pre-pregnancy and during the course of a pregnancy. Women often experience a deficit in minerals, especially iron and folic acid during pregnancy. These supps help bridge that gap.

    One other addition is the amount of DHA, an omega 3 fatty acid, which is crucial for the baby's brain, nerve, and eye tissue development. If you are considering taking one of these otc supps, just do a comparison from what you are currently taking and see where the amounts and differences stand. Either way, it won't cause any harm. Good luck and congrats on the pregnancy. Remind her that a carefully planned nutrition and excercise regimine will greatly improve her chances of a healthy pregnancy and ease during delivery.

    Take her for some walks....or.... play with her nipples. I seem to remember being told by my doctor about the nipple thing stimulating natural pitocin which causes contractions. Walks are good too to get things going.

    I would bet there is more iron than you need. Studies have shown that men don't need as much iron as women (for obvious reasons) and have a higher mortality rate when taking too much. Might want to check on that.

    Yeah... cuz we eat a lot more in genral and tend to eat more iron-rich foods... that is a concern for a man taking a female's prenatal... minerals can accumulate to unhealthy amounts in the body - if not used..

    I think darma doc meant that women bleed about every 28 days when not pregnant and are there for always in a defecit in iron. When pregnant, they need the iron for forming blood in the fetus.

    The RDA for women is more than 2x recommed for men. When it was calculated in 1968(no revision since) by the US they used women on her peroid.

    Yeah - they bleed and they consume far less red meats, typically. Men don't menstrate and they typically eat more iron-rich foods, like red meats... so a man supplementing with too much iron can easily reach toxic levels...
