| | Prenatal vs. Women's Vitamins
I've been taking Women's One a Day vitamins since I was a teen. I've heard that it's a good idea to take a women's vitamin if you may become pregnant because of the iron and folic acid. I'm not trying to get pregnant exactly, but I'm not on BC either, so I want to prepared just in case. I was just wondering how these vitamins differ from prenatal vitamins. There was a thread on the beauty board that discussed taking prenatals for faster hair growth - that's how I became interested. I compared labels at the grocery store, and the prenatals had more zinc, a, and c, and that's about it. Those were generic cheapie ones, so I don't know about the quality... I guess what I want to know is, in general, which would be best for someone in my situation. I am 22, no health problems, a few pounds underweight. Thanks!
