You’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it a thousand times. Basic supplementation for a busy mom should most likely include a multivitamin, fish oil, vitamin D, a probiotic, and maybe a “greens replacement”. Sounds easy right? Run over to GNC or better yet Whole Foods and voilà! Done! Healthy and beautiful! Not so fast moms; many of the supplements made available to consumers:

  • are not high quality or adequately absorbable
  • are not pure/clean (i.e. free of additive, heavy metals, and preservatives)
  • do not contain the ingredients that the label claims
  • do not follow GMP-certified manufacturing standards (which are an indicator of quality)
  • and are not made with safety-reviewed ingredients
