I've taken pre-natals for the last 14 years. Now, approaching 43 and feeling like my body needs something different, I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions for a multi-vitamin or did you continue with your pre-natal and add a supplement? I know we're all different, but I'm curious what others have done at this crossroad.

prenatals or similar are probably still the best, as long as there's a possibility of pregnancy you'll want to have enough folic acid since neural tube defects also tend to increase with maternal age. Plus as long as you're still having periods you should be getting iron.

Now it may be depending on what prenatal you use that you might choose to up it. I prefer something that's equivelent more or less to the Rainbow Light Prenatal System (the 6 pills a day one) My biggies to get enough of are B's, D's, c's, magnesium, potassium.. I also take some herbs.
