Testimonials

Dr. Menon, California
One of my patients was so excited and shocked by how easy vitaCare was to use and said she didn't get the "run-around" she usually experiences at her local pharmacy. She was even more excited about the fact that she had a $0 co-pay for her vitaPearl prenatal!

One of my patients who uses vitaCare came to me and said, “It is nice to get the prescription in the mail instead of having to wait in line at the pharmacy.”

Once I found out we were expecting a baby, I immediately switched (from vitaMedMD RediChew Rx) to vitaPearl because of the DHA. After insurance and your discount, we pay $15. It was so easy to put RediChew Rx auto-refill on hold and start vitaPearl, vitaPearl is small and easy to swallow, no bad taste or smell. Thanks for great and fast service. I look forward to taking vitaPearl after my delivery and when I finish breast feeding then going back to RediChew Rx!

I know I'm making the best choice possible for my baby when I take vitaPearl. It is so tiny, easy to swallow, and never leaves me with an upset stomach. I wish vitaPearl was available during my first pregnancy!

Kimberly, Owner of Peanut in My Belly Co.
vitaPearl, in it's tiny form is so easy to take compared to most prenatal vitamins. Many make me feel nauseous even when taking them with a big meal, but with vitaPearl I have zero sick feeling!
