While I was pregnant with my son, Bear, I embarked on a quest for the cleanest prenatal vitamin I could give my body. A vitamin that was aligned with the way I eat; organic, non-gmo, free of funky processed junk, and completely plant-based. Turns out this search was no simple task! I wanted something organic and vegan, but everything I found either had lots of chemicals or it wasn't vegan. I realized that if I wanted a truly great vitamin option, I was going to have to make it myself. So I went on a search for the perfect partner—the stars aligned with Garden of Life—and we co-founded mykind Organics. Together we created an entirely new kind of vitamin line that is Certified USDA Organic, Non-GMO Project Verified and free of synthetic binders and fillers. That’s right—made with whole foods and love!
I have been over the moon about these vitamins. And I am beyond thrilled now that we have added gummies to our line! Chewing something delicious is more fun—how could it not be?
Unlike most gummies on the market that pile on added sugar, syrup, animal byproducts, artificial dyes and colors, these gummies are actually good for you! And here’s why:
- No granulated sugar or syrups (most vitamins have the equivalent of 1 teaspoon sugar per serving!). Instead we use organic apple and peach puree to source the sweetness.
- No pig gelatin aka a gelling agent that's made from boiled animal skin and bones—primarily the stuff that’s left over from the meat industry (such as pork skins, horns, and cattle bones). For the first time ever, organic pectin is used in a vitamin! Our pectin is comprised of non-gmo apples and organic orange peels.
- No artificial flavorings or colorings. mykind Organics gets its nutritious vitamins and minerals from whole foods. Seriously! Each bottle contains nine pieces of whole organic fruit.
Your body can absorb the nutrients in our gummies because they are actually food-based – so instead of eating something made in a laboratory, you’re getting the sweetness of real organic fruit and veggies, transformed into a nutritious and yummy gummy! I am so happy we now provide a healthy farm to gummy vitamin for you! mykind Organics Gummies (from Kids, Prenatal, Women’s, Women’s 40+, Men’s, and Men’s 40+) are now available at all major health food stores and online retailers. Check em’ out! They are so darn delicious I dare you not to want more than the daily serving!
