Garden of Life Prenatal Vitamins
Garden of Life’s mykind Organics Line is designed to meet the new standards set by the movement of conscious eating. All of the ingredients are USDA certified organic, Non-GMO Project verified, and contain absolutely no synthetic ingredients, binders or fillers. Often, vitamins will include a synthetic version of a nutrient; Not mykind Organics prenatal MultiVitamin. It is made of of only real whole food sourced ingredients.
This is not purely ideological, as the choice to hold their multivitamin to such standards is in order to ensure that the nutrition they are offering is the most bioavailable and effective. Studies have shown that organic produce does tend to contain 20% to 40% more antioxidant amounts than crops grown with conventional pesticides. Not to mention, the trace amount of chemical pesticides that remain on the produce itself. But in the case of genetically modified produce the chemical compounds that deter and kill pests are being incorporated into the genetic makeup of the plant itself. In a 2009 study published by the 2009, the International Journal of Biological Science, it was found that when rats were fed 3 different strains of genetically modified corn for an extended period of time, they did find signs of hepatorenal toxicity, which expressed itself via damage/strain to the liver and kidneys.

Garden of Life includes 30 different vegetables, fruits, and herbs in order to ensure a broad spectrum of healthful nutrients are being provided at this pivotal time.
Among the most important are Iron, B vitamins, and Folate. Iron deficiency can become an issue for many expecting mother’s due to the fact that their body naturally requires an increased amount in order to produce the additional blood needed to support the child’s growing cardiovascular system and the network of blood flow needed to sustain the womb itself. The iron included in the mykind Organics Prenatal MultiVitamin is derived for curry leaves and is paired with Vitamin C from amla berries in order to aid in the iron’s absorption.
B vitamins play an important role in the bodies being able to convert food into usable energy, and this is very important for both mothers and babies. This prenatal multi includes B1, B2, B3, B6 and Pantothenic acid derived from guava and holy basil. but the most important of the B vitamins is Folate. Folate is an absolutely essential part of proper fetal development. It helps the baby’s DNA communicate what cells need to be made, when and where. A severe lack of Folate can lead to serious birth defects, namely Spina bifida. And deficiency can lead to the mother experiencing megaloblastic anemia which causes weakness, fatigue, and headache. Notice that mykind Organics Prenatal MultiVitamin includes Folate and not folic acid. Folic acid is synthetic and has been shown to be not as effective as a plant derived Folate.
