Multivitamins are a great way to ensure that your nutritional bases are covered. Garden of Life’s vitamins take a unique approach – they’re food-based and USDA-certified organic, and they’ve long been a favorite of our customers. Bonus: right now they’re on sale for 25% off (plus ask staff member for a coupon and save another $3, in addition to the sale price!).
Like New Pi, Garden of Life is committed to supporting family-owned organic farms. Through long-term contracts, Garden of Life offers security to these small farmers, like the Hunolt family, just one of the farms they source from:
Supporting small, organic farms demonstrates their commitment to the idea of “people using business as a force for good.” Garden of Life’s long list of certifications also illustrates their dedication to this idea, as well as going the extra mile to ensure their products are:
certified as both USDA Organic and Non-GMO verified – the first multivitamin on the market to be able to make that claim.
Additionally they are Certified Vegan, Certified Gluten Free, a Certified B-corp, and the list goes on and on.
We were all very excited to see the arrival of their certified organic food-based gummy! These are a delicious way to get your daily nutrient needs covered in a tasty, chewy form. Per Garden of Life, their vitamin gummies take a different approach,
“ditching the conventional vitamin gummy course by steering clear of processed sugars and syrups, artificial colors and flavorings, animal products, and GMOs. They’re made with organic pectin from non-GMO organic apples and organic orange peel—no pig gelatin.”
Garden of Life’s MyKind Organic Multivitamin formulations designed for men promote health, strength, and endurance. Their women’s formulation are geared to support women’s health, energy, and beauty. For those of us near or past the age of 40, they describe their men’s 40+ formulation as promoting health, vitality, and stamina, and their women’s 40+ is zeroed in on supporting health, rejuvenation, and focus. They also offer a prenatal multivitamin to support mom and baby. If you prefer fewer pills, they also offer a one-a-day version of these formulations.
