I bought Dr. Fuhrman’s Gentle Prenatal Vitamins from his website soon after reading his Eat to Live book and becoming a nutritarian (click here to learn What is a Nutritarian). I liked that, as stated in the label, they are vegan (no ingredients from animal sources), made using the “highest quality ingredients derived whenever possible from whole plant foods or the highest quality amino acid chelates,” and that the capsules can be opened and “mixed with food or drink” if desired. They cost $47.99 for a 90 day supply (180 “veggie-capsules”) for the general public (this is the price I paid) and $43.19 for members of Dr. Furhman’s website (fee required for membership).
Overall Experience with Dr. Fuhrman’s Gentle Prenatal Vitamins:
Overwhelmingly positive. After using them for three months I can say that these are the most easily digested and tolerated vitamins I have ever used. Many vitamins give me digestive woes. I have food allergies and sensitivities which make finding a good supplement (that my body can actually process) difficult. These are among my top two vitamins that I have ever used (I will write a review on the other one in my top two soon). I plan to alternate between these top two vitamins in hopes that I won’t end up developing an intolerance to either one. At this point I would say it’s a tie between the two as far as which I like best.
Bottom line regarding Dr. Fuhrman’s Gentle Prenatal Vitamins:
I would give them 5 out of 5 stars. I would definitely recommend these vitamins for women who are pregnant or plan to conceive. They are a great vegan vitamin and I plan to buy them again in the future.
