nicadai Posted March 21, 2015 Share Posted March 21, 2015 I'm in the process of trying to get pregnant. I'm pretty much living the whole30 because I feel good on it, but I'm concerned about my micro nutrients. Especially Calcium, K2, folate and A. I have been taking pure essentials Nutrient 950 with vitamin K and Jarrow formulas Max DHA. I've been told the Nutrient 950 with K is too high in Vitamin A by my doctor. I understand it is beta carotene and not retinol (I don't think he gets the difference), but from my internet research the jury is still out on taking too much beta carotene while pregnant. So to be safe, should I take separate supplements for only the needed micro nutrients. Calcium, folate (or b complex), and K2 (I live in the eternal sunshine of California, and walk daily, so I think I'm fine with D). Is there anything I'm missing? I can't add liver, and raw fermented foods are looked down upon as are fish eggs, soft cheeses and pretty much anything full of K2 are also not recommended during pregnancy. Do you have any calcium supplement suggestions or at least what I should look for as a source? And should I maybe add in some dairy? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
