The brand is "Buried Treasure" Here's a link: http://www.webvitamins.com/product.aspx?ID=23767
(I've never bought from that site, it's just the first result that came up on a search).
I bought it at my local Healthway. It was priced at like $26.98 but I got it for 25% off. Still expensive, but not as bad. I tell you what, I notice a real difference on days when I dont take my vitamins! I feel more lethargic and moody. My routine is:
AM: Vit. B 50 complex, 500 milligrams Vit. C, 2 Alfalfa capsules (fyi an easy to absorb iron), prenatal vit
Noon: Vit. B 50 complex, 2 Alfalfa capsules
PM: 2 Alfalfa capsules
I also drink an herbal tea made from equal parts Nettle, Oatstraw, RRL, and Alfalfa. I made a strong infusion the night before (lightly sweetened with raw sugar) and drink it iced all day. (Ice melts and dilutes the strong flavor.) It's great to toss in a Nalgene bottle with some ice and drink it on the go.
I hope you can find a routine that work mamma!
