Postpartum tired is a whole new level of tired. Anya Energy Tonic addresses the root issue—depleted nutrient levels—by sustaining energy levels and keeping you hydrated. And to the many new moms that choose to limit caffeine while nursing, we hear you: this refreshing tonic is 100% caffeine-free.
Tonic-curious? Here’s the breakdown: a tonic combines liquid vitamins and herbs with a little flavor in an elixir you can drop in water to supplement your diet with the nutrients critical during postpartum. Food is always the best source of nutrients, but postpartum days get so hectic, it can be hard to stay hydrated or focus on your B12 intake—and this fresh, invigorating tonic helps new moms do both.
Add 4 droppers full to 8 oz. cold, lukewarm, or warm water.
Our energy tonic is rich in B12 and Chromium, a vitamin and mineral critical to supporting healthy energy levels in the body, combined with a proprietary blend of shatavari root, cinnamon and ginger, herbs and spices that are traditionally used among postpartum women for their warming, energizing, anti-inflammatory properties.
Women require more B12 after childbirth than during pregnancy. This critical vitamin is quickly depleted from the body and is directly connected to energy production and red blood cell production. B12 comes mainly from animal foods, so it’s especially important for women who are vegetarian or follow a predominately plant-based diet. Adequate B12 status has been shown to play an important role in cognitive function. B12 is also an important nutrient in infant nutrition and is passed from mother to baby in breastmilk.
Chromium is a key nutrient for cellular energy metabolism, which can help to support energy levels throughout the day.
In some parts of the world, women are given ginger immediately after the birth of a child, as it is believed to help a mother heal from childbirth and stimulate breastmilk production. Soothing and warming, ginger is known for its benefits including providing digestive support, anti-inflammatory effects and support with circulatory health.
Cinnamon is a foundation of postpartum care amongst many cultures, traditionally used for its warming properties. Cinnamon is known for being anti-inflammatory and an antioxidant, and is traditionally used to support circulatory health, stimulate the digestive system and support the body’s energy production.

Because product safety is our top priority, we adhere to the highest standards when it comes to our testing. Every raw material is selected by us and approved by a toxicologist for micro, lead, heavy metals and gluten before it arrives at our manufacturer. Our tonics then undergo finished product batch testing to ensure product integrity as well as third party testing to ensure they are pesticide, gluten and GMO free.
Our tonics are made transparently with a visible supply chain from farm to bottle, so you know what you’re putting in your body. Anya tonics are made in Florida in a Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) facility using clean label, non-toxic, vegan ingredients. We stand behind a long list of ingredients we will never use, including non-organic preservatives, animal products and alcohol.
Anya packaging is 100% recyclable. Our tonics are filled in FDA-certified glass bottles that can be reused or recycled. Our dropper tops are made with recyclable plastic. Our shipper box was designed purposefully for minimal waste. We will continue to prioritize ways to reduce our ecological footprint when it comes to our packaging, supply chain and manufacturing processes.
Yes, all of our products are designed to be taken together or at the same time. We have worked with nutritionists and doctors to ensure that all of our products can be taken together, and combined dosages (particularly with the vitamins, tonics and teas) are appropriate for postpartum and breastfeeding women.
We know time is the last thing you have, our Anya subscription was designed to deliver what you need when you need it. Our products were designed to work together, so at this time, we are not selling products individually. However, our Postpartum Recovery Plan is completely flexible. You can edit the 3 products you receive each month, anytime.
Here's what we did to ensure product safety. First, we verified every single ingredient, dosage and product form we used in each product with a toxicologist. Then, we reviewed our product formulas with OB-GYN's, dermatologists and nutritionists for sign-off on safety for breastfeeding mothers. Next, we did 3rd party safety testing on each product to determine the products are pesticide free, non-GMO and gluten-free. As with taking any supplement or using any product while breastfeeding, if you have any questions, it's always a good idea to consult your healthcare practitioner prior to use.
Our tonics are a liquid dietary supplement containing a proprietary blend of vitamins and herbs.
Yes, all of our products are 100% vegan. We take pride in the fact that we worked to find animal-free alternatives to so many products that are commonly found in the market - from bovine gelatin capsules, to lanolin-derived vitamin D, every single ingredient in our products is 100% vegan.
All of our products are made in the U.S. in cGMP certified manufacturing facilities.
We encourage everyone, especially if you have allergies, to review our supplements facts panels for a list of all ingredients included in each product. Anya products are major allergen free, with the exception of tree nuts from coconuts (highly refined coconut is used in our multivitamin and coconut oil is used in our nipple balm).
We recommend not to use Anya products during pregnancy. All of our products are tested and approved for safety while breastfeeding, however we have not completed testing to ensure safety during pregnancy. While all of our ingredients are clean and non-toxic, we use several herbs in our teas and tonics that are not recommended for pregnant women.
