Prenatal Vitamins For Men

Would You Ask Your Husband to Take Pre-Conception Vitamins?

It may take two to tango, but it often feels like the woman is the only one who has to prepare for pregnancy. We have heard about the benefits of taking folic acid for up to a year before pregnancy, but now in the UK, vitamin manufacturers are advertising supplements for both men and women to put them on the right health path prior to conception.

Sanatogen Mother & Father to Be includes multivitamins for both men and women preparing to create a baby. The woman's pills include the usual mix of prenatal supplements, including increased amounts of folic acid, while the men's version is made up of key nutrients like zinc to ensure that his reproductive system is healthy.

Would you put your husband on a male prenatal vitamin to help with conception?

Take vitamins and get them from your food sources no matter what reproductive stage you are in. Truly, I think these things are for the people who don't take care of themselves and want a last ditch effort at health, or perhaps they are desperate enough to try anything.

I think the pre-conception vitamin thing is a gimmick. I don't think it's a bad idea for everyone to take a multivitamin whether they're trying to conceive or not.
