There is a good discussion over in the PEERtrainer community about Organic Multivitamins and one company in particular, New Chapter Vitamins, kept coming up in the conversation.
Some people questioned why one would need an organic multivitamin, but it does make sense for women who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant
to take the organic version. New Chapter makes a prenatal vitamin called "Perfect Prenatal
", which seems to be a bestseller on Amazon in their category. Sometimes it makes sense to see where consumers are voting with their dollars. We did a search for other "organic prenatal" vitamins and New Chapter was the only company that popped up.
This is the product description from the company. It is a big list but from everything we have read and seen it is a good approach:
Perfect Prenatal- Nourishing Fulfillment for You and Your Baby. Nature's organic probiotic whole-food prenatal vitamin.
