Frequently asked questions
Melanin impacts how we produce certain nutrients, and it reduces our body’s ability to absorb Vitamin D from the sun, which puts us at risk for deficiencies and impacts our overall wellness. An estimated 80% of melanated people are Vitamin D deficient. We utilized this data and over a decade of research and testing to formulate Mela with the precise vitamins, probiotics and adaptogens to address the specific nutritional needs of melanated people.
After we launched Mela, we spent a year conducting consumer focus groups and coordinating with healthcare providers to identify the precise vitamins, probiotics and adaptogens needed by melanated bodies. We then used this science-based data to formulate our Daily Essentials multivitamin.
All good things take time, and multivitamins are no different! Multivitamins support whole body wellness through daily use. We recommend daily use for two to three months to experience the full benefits of Daily Essentials.
We source high-quality, natural ingredients from domestic and international partners. Instead of using cheaper, synthetic ingredients we source the bioavailable forms of vitamins that are easier for your body to absorb. Our vegan capsules are also free from harmful fillers and additives that can cause digestive and other issues like magnesium stearate or titanium dioxide. Our bottles are also bpa-free and phthalate-free.
