What’s New at JJ’s Prescription Specialties: Jan. 2018

Every year, thousands of babies are born with birth defects and it’s something JJ’s Prescription Specialties takes seriously. Prenatal vitamins are one of the easiest and most effective ways to reduce birth defects and nurture your body before and during pregnancy.

It’s easy to get overwhelmed from family, friends and distant relatives who may offer not-so-orthodox tips for a healthy pregnancy, but the JJ’s team will work closely with you and your physician to ensure you receive only the highest quality supplements and the best care possible.

Your two new best friends during your pregnancy are folic acid and iron, but more often than not, your diet alone may not have the necessary amounts. Without enough iron, iron deficiency anemia can occur, which can then spur preterm delivery and low birth weight.

Folic acid is a B-vitamin, and it’s an essential part of your pregnancy before you conceive as well as during the early weeks of your pregnancy. This super-vitamin can help reduce your baby’s risk of spina bifida and anencephaly by up to 70%. In addition, your body tends to absorb synthetic folic acid better than the natural folic acid found in food, which means supplements can deliver better results that diet alone.

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a form of arthritis that attacks the lining of your joints. As an inflammatory disease, it can cause pain, swelling, stiffness and loss of function. RA occurs when white blood cells move from the blood stream into the area surrounding the joint. Proteins are then released due to the inflammation and can do irreversible damage to a patient’s joints.

If you are living with RA, talk to your doctor about what prescription may be right for you. JJ’s Prescription Specialties can fill many RA prescriptions locally, including Cimzia, Enbrel, Humira, Simponi and Foreto.
