Supplements are an excellent source of added nutrition when you may be coping with the symptoms of pregnancy & struggling to eat a healthy and well-balanced diet. Even for those who do eat nutritious foods, our modern day agricultural system leaves our food and soil depleted. Some people may have dietary restrictions due to allergens and need to supplement to fill those gaps in micronutrients. Sometimes our bodies aren't assimilating these nutrients as well as it could be and we're left depleted. Whole food supplements are ideal but sometimes our bodies need a little more, especially when we're growing a human! And not all of them are treated equally. From fillers to production practices, to inadequate doses or suboptimal bioavailability. These are reputable brands that I highly recommend and have used myself! Check back as other options are added regularly.** Some supplements should be discussed with your care provider before using them, to ensure they're the best fit for you! If you're a personal client of mine, let me know what you're wanting & I can order through my personal wholesale account for some supplements, at a better cost to you!

The difference with this brand is that it's made from fermented cod liver oil. Which also contains higher amounts of Vitamin A & D.
B vitamins play a role in so many processes of the body & don't get the attention they deserve. If you're vegetarian/vegan or anemic, be sure to add this to your shopping list!
Whole Foods Iron
Another small but mighty supplement. Liver contains dense nutrition including vitamin B's, iron, vitamin A, amino acids, & CoQ10. It's a myth that the liver is a "Storage for toxins", so don't let that prevent you from trying them.
