Yes, one Tend bar replaces your entire prenatal vitamin regimen. Each snack-sized bar contains 25 nutrients, all sourced from real foods, to support fertility, pregnancy and postpartum, including folate, iron, and omega-3 DHA.
Tend is made solely with whole food-sourced vitamins and minerals alongside macronutrients like protein and fiber, devoid in other prenatals but required at higher levels in pregnancy. We are proud to be first and only synthetic-free prenatal vitamin. Oh, and we're delicious!
Yes. Every batch of Tend is third-party tested for nutrient levels. We also third-party test for heavy metals, microbes, and glyphosate, ensuring that they are all well below levels deemed safe by the FDA.
1. Unique Chemical Structures: Nutrients from food have structures that often can't be replicated by synthetic vitamins. In many cases, leads to diminished absorption of that nutrient.
2. Synergy: Even when structures can be replicated, synthetic nutrients are delivered as individual, isolated compounds, whereas nutrients from food are delivered alongside other chemicals, co-factors, or macronutrients that significantly enhance that nutrient's absorption and potency.
3. Side by side studies: Dozens of side-by-side studies studies fail to show the health benefits of multivitamins compared to those exact nutrients delivered from foods.
Unfortunately, almost every multivitamin, and prenatal, from big box to new wave, is made up solely of these synthetic nutrients.
