Editing after taking for a week - Good quality and natural prenatal. This is tasteless and easy to swallow.
Ingredients wise, this is RAW (meaning no fillers, artificial flavours, additives,etc), all food-derived, gluten free and has the right balance of nutrients that I’m looking for! Been searching for good prenatal supplements that have the right amount of folate (not synthetic folic acid which is difficult to absorb by our bodies) and other vitamins and minerals.
Size of capsules are not small but I don’t hv issue swallowing them. At first was hesitant having to take 3 times a day but not a concern anymore. Note: I sometimes take 2 at a time when I forget and don’t see any issue.
I purchased 2 big bottles of these for my daughter, who was taking a once daily prenatal vitamin that always made her nauseous, many times even when taken in the middle of a meal. She is in her third trimester. I asked her to take her first one of these on an empty stomach, just to prove that this product would not do that to her. I had confidence in this product, because I heard the CEO of Garden of Life talk about his products. It does not upset her stomach!
We are trying to conceive and in our 30s age. The ingredient Garden of Life has is always the best quality. The taste is also not as bad as other artifical fertility vitamins. Packaging and size is also perfect. I take 2-3 pills daily throughout the day for best effect. I have started a plant-based diet and I hope we can conceive soon.
These have everything my growing baby needs, minus a few ingredients that shouldn’t be taken at the same time. The pill size is easy to swallow, so taking it three times daily is no problem. I appreciate the glass bottle packaging. It seems very potent. The only mild negative is the taste, which is normal for many multivitamins I have tried. Highly recommend!
Sometimes you find a product that just works. I used these prenatal vitamins during my last pregnancy, and returned to them during this one. At my 20 week ultrasound, I was blessed to find out that my child is perfectly healthy, and I do attribute much of that to taking the proper vitamins. These have been tried and true for years, and I trust this brand. I love that the bottles feel the same now as they did 9 years ago. The pills are the same, and they remain easy to swallow and possess no unpleasant odors or flavors. Don’t change what works.
These vitamins were recommended to me before my first pregnancy and I took them before and during my first pregnancy, also while breastfeeding for about 8 months. I am trying to conceive, so I ordered the same vitamins as I was so happy with my previous experience. Easy to ingest (pills are not really small, but they are sleek and done get stuck into your mouth) and no funky aftertaste, great quality of the ingredient. The daily ratio is 3 pills, so I usually take one for breakfast, one for lunch and one for dinner, so I always take them with food and it is easier to remember.
I'm trying to conceive, so I've been taking them for a while now. They work as a regular multivitamin.
For those who complain that there is no calcium and magnesium in them - it was a smart move by the manufactorer, because you're NOT supposed to take them (Ca and Mg) at the same time as iron! All 3 have to be taken separatelly, at least 2h apart, or they will compete for absorption and you won't get enough of them into your system.
Will definitely continue buying and taking this product when I get pregnant.
After doing much research I came across this brand for prenatal and postnatal vitamins . I was looking for something natural NOT synthetic vitamins which are everywhere now especially in conventional drugstores. I was initially taking some drugstores prenatal vitamins that my doctor had prescribed silly me I thought they were the best on the market in Australia. But after awhile and a long research I found out that what I was taking was synthetic crap. I’m really happy with vitamin code so far, knowing that all the vitamins and nutritions there are clean and organic and good for mom and baby. Already bought the second bottle for future
I used this during my first pregnancy and I'm using it again for my second. These prenatals never bother my stomach and although it's a bit annoying to take three pills throughout the day, I feel like it helps with better nutrient absorption. I like that it come packaged in an amber glass container so the quality of the product stays effective.
I have so much energy after taking these pills. I’m not as fatigued as I was prior to my purchase. The taste is not that great I won’t lie, and the pills are a bit big… but it’s worth it. These are really good quality and I will definitely recommend. Another plus is the folate ingredient.
