I did a lot of research into which prenatal vitamins to take before getting pregnant. I had a few things I really wanted from my prenatals which these have. First I wanted them to have the biologically active form of folate as many vitamins have folic acid which is the inactive form of folate and some people can't convert the inactive form to the active form. Not everyone has this problem but with folate being so important to baby's development, I didn't want to take that chance. I also wanted my prenatal to have DHA since I don't like fish. These vitamins include DHA and get it from an algae source which removes the risk of it having heavy metals, PCBs, or microplastics. Another thing I was looking for was I didn't want the vitamin to have the full 100% daily value of iron as I get most of my iron from my diet and having too much iron makes me feel nauseous and dizzy. The last thing I was looking for in a prenatal was I would prefer it to be small as I have a hard time swallowing big pills. I actually used to take gummy prenatal vitamins because of this but didn't like the added sugar so was really excited when I found these. They are a pretty small size but bigger than I feel the "pint sized" description made me think it would be. I actually thought it would be the size of the black dot on the bottle next to the butterfly (haha) but it's bigger than that yet definitely smaller than most other prenatals. It's been very easy for me to swallow these pills.
Some other notes, they are a little "fishy" but really not much. But enough to ever make me sick. Also, I used to take these later in the day but noticed i was starting to have difficulty sleeping (which I think was due to the vitamin B12). So I took it in the morning which resolved my sleep problem and didn't cause morning sickness. So overall this is a great prenatal that has the essential vitamins needed for baby.
I was nervous about starting prenatal vitamins from hearing a lot about women being nauseated from them but these Might Mini softgels smell so good (mint)! I have never once felt nauseous after taking them. Been taking them for about a year now and here to order more! To me, these (and the other Zahler prenatal) do not have a taste at all.
So easy to swallow; highly recommend to those who struggle with the larger prenatals of other brands. Also there are gelatin free which is so hard to find in other prenatals!
Zahler's Prenatal MightyMini is a much more tolerable size than the typical horse pill prenatal vitamin; however, upon opening the bottle the scent is enough to make you sick. I can't quite put my finger on what the smell is exactly, but it's truly repugnant. It took everything I had to get it down. One of the only positive sides of COVID was that I could take these vitamins without trouble. Not only was the smell terrible, but the taste lingered unless I had something to eat immediately after. The only positive here is that I noticed that my hair and skin began looking healthier after a couple weeks.
Vitamins are easy to swallow and do not have a bad aftertaste.
