Frequently asked questions

Our MomKidDad® and MomKidDad®+ products are gluten-free or fructose-free. No animal ingredients are present in MomKidDad® and are ideal for vegan diets. Vitamin D3 is made of sheep wool in MomKidDad®+ but is purified to such a degree that DNA traces can not be identified.

Both products have the nutrients folic acid and iodine of particular significance, the recommended dose that can hardly be consumed in food alone. In MomKidDad®+ significant vitamins, B12 and D3 were added for pregnancy. For a healthy young woman, these vitamins are sufficient. For the addition of other vitamins, it is always better to consult your doctor or health professional during pregnancy.

Since both products contain 100 micrograms of iodine, it is always advisable that a medical practitioner be consulted in the case of thyroid disorders before ingesting them.

Folic acid: Folic acid can not overdose alone with food. Normally, even a significantly higher dose of folic acid tablets has no negative effect. The water-soluble vitamin is simply excreted through the kidneys.

Iodine: “For Germany, a safe total daily intake of 500 micrograms of iodine is usually recommended, and our products contain only 100 micrograms of iodine, which is a healthy total daily intake. Late thyroid over functions are typically only caused by the unphysiologically elevated doses of iodine within the milligram range (BfR, 2014, medical practise advice: iodine, folate / folic acid and pregnancy);

Vitamin B12: Typically, no overdose of vitamin B12 is possible; since vitamin B12 is also water-soluble, the excess amount of vitamin B12 is excreted through the kidneys.

Vitamin D3: In general, vitamin D supplements are not harmful. If you only take vitamin D3 every day, no overdose is possible. This happens only when 40,000 to 50,000 international calculus units (vitamin D3) are permanently consumed. MomKidDad®+ contains only 400 international units.

To avoid deformities, 0.4–0.8 milligrammes of folic acid should be taken a few months before pregnancy. The average daily intake of food in Western Europe is less than 0.3 milligrammes, and even less than 0.2 milligrammes in young women.

It is not possible to achieve the recommended dose through food alone.
