Neevo DHA Prenatal Vitamins

A supplement available only with a prescription, Neevo® DHA is a prenatal vitamin designed for high-risk pregnancies. Specifically, this product is designed for people in the following categories:
 
  • Women with a genetic inability to adequately metabolize folic acid (MTHFR polymorphism)
  • Older women
  • Women with intermediate- to high-risk pregnancies, for a variety of reasons, such as previous miscarriages.
 
In addition to containing iron, calcium, and various other vitamins and minerals, Neevo DHA contains DHA (an important omega-3 fatty acid) and Metafolin®, a special form of folic acid. Folic acid is important to prevent certain birth defects, such as spina bifida. Neevo DHA is unique because it contains the active form of folic acid that does not need to be metabolized by the body.
