Prenatal Oxylent: Review and GIVEAWAY!

I have been on prenatal vitamins for a very long time. I started about 5 years ago when my husband and I were starting to think about having a family. I wanted to have the prenatal vitamins in my body well in advance of getting pregnant. We got pregnant with my first child, a daughter and I continued on with taking the vitamins, even now as she is 3 1/2 years old. I took them while I was breastfeeding her, and even afterwards as I knew we wanted more children. I have been on them non-stop since then. I recently had our second child, a little boy who is almost 4 months old. I probably will take multivitamins for several more years.

I hate swallowing pills, especially when they are as large as the ones I currently take, and there are so many of them. I take these pills daily: a folic acid, 2 prenatal pills, calcium, probiotic "pearl", iron, 6 fenugreek, 4-6 blessed thistle, 6 brewers yeast tablets, and dha. I swallow through them, because I know they are healthy for me and for baby (in the womb, and when breast feeding). I drink plenty of water, and I eat fruits and vegetables. When the opportunity came to try a prenatal that was in a powdered form to mix with water or juice, I was truly excited. The product is called Prenatal Oxylent and has a cranberry raspberry flavor.

Prenatal Oxylent is an effervescent (it fizzes and reminds me of a fruit juice mixed with a soda water) powder which offers vital nutrients for those who are expecting and those who are nursing. Naturally sweetened with Stevia, Prenatal Oxylent powder can be added to 6 ounces of water. This unique multi-vitamin is ideal for pregnant women who have a hard time swallowing pills due to nausea or ladies who just do not like swallowing pills. There is no gluten, dairy, soy, calories, herbs, caffeine, or anything artificial in this powdered vitamin supplement. It is designed to meet and exceed the nutritional needs of pregnant and nursing women, which includes iron, vitamin A, folic acid, B vitamins, choline, and other vitamins and minerals.

I have tried this mixed with filtered water and also with a natural low sugar real fruit juice (such as orange juice or cranberry). This could also be put into a fruit smoothie. (Please do not add sugar to your smoothies as it is not needed, the fruit has natural sugars in it.) When I make a fruit smoothie, I add 1-2 frozen or unfrozen bananas, some orange juice, a few frozen strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries. I often like to add some plain, unsweetened greek yogurt. I then often add 1 of these packets and blend. If your fruit is not frozen, use ice.

This is a very convenient method of taking your prenatal vitamins. The slim packet makes it super easy to slip into your pocket or purse. It does taste pretty good, and did not cause nausea or any problems for me. I am not a big fan of Stevia or other sweeteners due to the particular taste of them, however, I make a daily smoothie anyway and so I often put this in my fruit smoothie. On days that I make a non fruit smoothie (protein chocolate cacao powder with milk and banana) Then I use my regular pill form prenatals and swallow the pills.

I like how the company makes a variety of powdered multivitamins, including a children's one. The children's one is a good alternative to chewable and gummy vitamins, and is a fun and healthy alternative to sugary drinks (kids love fizzy drinks).
