PreQue 10 is designed specifically to meet the extra nutritional demands of a pregnant woman. PreQue 10 contains lycopene. Lycopene is a carotenoid present in human serum and skin as well as the liver, adrenal glands, lungs, prostate, and colon. In addition to CoQ10 and lycopene, PreQue 10 has other ingredients with antioxidant properties, such as vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E and selenium.
Good maternal nutrition is a key factor influencing the health of the mother and child. (1)
The American Dietetic Association recommends that pregnant women have appropriate weight gain, consumption of a variety of foods in accordance with the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, have appropriate and timely vitamin and mineral supplementation, and that alcohol, tobacco, and other harmful substances be avoided. (2)
PreQue 10 is designed specifically to meet the extra nutritional demands of a woman before, during, and/or after pregnancy.
PreQue 10 is contraindicated in patients with a known hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients. Do not take this product if you are presently taking mineral oil, unless directed by a doctor.
Accidental overdose of iron-containing products is a leading cause of fatal poisoning in children under 6. Keep this product out of reach of children. In case of accidental overdose, call a doctor or poison control center immediately.
Ingestion of more than 3 grams of omega-3 fatty acids (such as DHA) per day has been shown to have potential antithrombotic effects, including an increased bleeding time and International Normalized Ratio (INR). Administration of omega-3 fatty acids should be avoided in patients taking anticoagulants and in those known to have an inherited or acquired predisposition to bleeding.
Folic acid alone is improper therapy in the treatment of pernicious anemia and other megaloblastic anemias where vitamin B12 is deficient. Folic acid in doses above 1mg daily may obscure pernicious anemia in that hematologic remission can occur while neurological manifestations remain progressive.
Allergic sensitization has been reported following both oral and parenteral administration of folic acid. Mild transient diarrhea, polycythemia vera, itching, transitory exanthema and the feeling of swelling of the entire body has been associated with cyanocobalamin.
Exercise caution to ensure that the prescribed dosage of DHA does not exceed 1 gram (1000 mg) per day.

Before, during, and/or after pregnancy, two (2) tablets should be taken daily or as directed by a physician. The total daily dose (2 tablets) of PreQue 10 may be taken at one time or in divided doses.
