Why does my tablet look different than previous purchases?
Because we make our products in small, fresh batches, we also order fresh ingredients. Fresh ingredients can come in a gradient of colors. As a result, our tablets can have different colors depending on the batch.
Are your supplements dairy-free?
Yes. All our supplements are dairy-free, including our probiotics.
Are your supplements made from only whole foods?
We use whole food sources whenever we can. However, in some cases, synthesized nutrients can be designed to be easier for your body to absorb, in the more active-form, and more efficient. We choose the form that is the best.
Are your supplements organic?
Every ingredient is chosen because it truly is the best that Best Nest Wellness can find. Each formula is crafted to make sure those ingredients have a purpose and a benefit. That means sometimes the best choice may not be organic. For instance, L-methylfolate, a finished folate, is only created by a human body from plants or created in a lab. It cannot be obtained directly from plants. We use organic ingredients whenever possible and always use it for our wellness and herbal blends.
Why is methylfolate important?
Methylfolate is the methylated form of vitamin B9—the form your body actually uses. By using methylfolate instead of folic acid, you can bypass the pathway that changes folic acid to methylfolate.
If you have the MTHFR gene variant, you may have a difficult time making the enzyme that converts folic acid to methylfolate. You must take methylfolate. Even if you don’t have the MTHFR gene variant, the benefits of taking methylfolate are numerous.
What are the benefits of P5P for sleep?
Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate (P-5-P) is the active form ofVitamin B6. P-5-P is needed to convert 5-HTP to serotonin, a calming neurotransmitter.

Should my Multi+ tablet have a smell?
Providing a once-daily vitamin that is closest to its natural state is important to us. That means not coating it with artificial colors and flavors. Our vitamins have a natural fruity scent. To neutralize a vitamin’s scent, some really helpful tips include removing the packing cotton, moving the tablets to vitamin boxes, or putting the vitamins in the refrigerator.
Why does the Best Nest Men's Multi+ not contain iron?
For most men, the iron that they get through food is enough since men don’t lose iron on a regular basis through menstruation.

What amount of probiotics are in Best Nest Women's Multi+?
Why am I experiencing gas, bloating, heartburn, constipation, or diarrhea when taking probiotics?
Some people experience a temporary increase in gas and bloating when first taking probiotic supplements or an increased amount. It is not known exactly why some people experience these side effects, but they typically subside after a few weeks of continued use. If you have these symptoms, we recommend taking the probiotic capsule every other day until your body has adjusted.

Why should I take Postnatal vs. Prenatal vitamins?
Our Mama Bird Postnatal Multi+ was formulated for the period of time after having a baby and for support during breastfeeding. There are a few differences between the Mama Bird Prenatal Multi+ and the Mama Bird Postnatal Multi+. Since nausea and a slower digestive system are no longer an issue, the herbal blend in the prenatal has been replaced by an organic wellness blend. The wellness blend provides vitamins, minerals and micro-nutrients that help support the demands of being a new mother. Since mothers are no longer supporting the baby in the womb, their bodies no longer need the higher amounts of methylfolate needed for their baby's neuro-development. The amount of methylfolate has been decreased to 600 mcg, which is 100% of the daily value for women.
What is the difference between Mama Bird Prenatal Multi+ and Mama Bird AM/PM Prenatal Multi+?
Mama Bird Prenatal Multi+ is our convenient once-daily caplet prenatal. Mama Bird AM/PM Prenatal Multi+ is two caplets per day that can be taken together or at different times to distribute nutrients for those customers who may be sensitive to absorption. Mama Bird AM/PM Prenatal Multi+ also has more choline.
Why are methylated vitamins important?
With methylated vitamins, your body doesn’t have to do extra work to change the vitamin into a form it can use. Methylated vitamins are made with the active-form of nutrients found naturally in our bodies.
In addition to the above benefits for everyone, if you have the MTHFR gene variant (affects approximately 56% of people—ask your doctor), then your body is not making enough 5-MTHF (an important enzyme for methylation) and so it is extremely important for you to take methylated vitamins.
