    Default Vitamins

    Hi ladies

    I know this question has been asked many times, but just wanting to get everyone else's opinions.

    I am on a naturopathic brand of prenatal vitamin that costs $85 for 45 days worth. Do you think this is ridiculously expensive?

    I have been told that it is a better vitamin to take due to potency and purity compared to brands such as Elevit etc.

    I just know that every practitioner says different things... Im not lacking in any area deficiency wise, just wanting to top up on things that i may be lowish in etc.

    Thoughts ladies?

    TIA 😊😊

    Edited to add its actually 75 days worth of vitamins

    I was on elevit but my naturopath said it's essentially a huge pharmaceutical company with a great advertising campaign and there are better options out there.

    I'm on MyGen fertility formula I think it's $45 for a month supply, can't remember how much elevit it but I also get pretty constipated (tmi) when I take them
