HOW DID YOU CHOOSE THE INGREDIENTS THAT GO INTO THE MULTI VITAMIN?
When it comes to determining the best formula, we carefully selected each ingredient and its source to serve a necessary biological value based on proven science and clinical data. For example, optimal levels of 5-Methyltetrahydrofolic Acid (5-MTHF) are used because research shows that many people cannot assimilate and metabolize folic acid from food or supplements. This is because folic acid and food folate are not biologically active. 5-MTHF is the only metabolically active form of folic acid that exists on the market, which is included in Multi-Vitamin, Mineral & Antioxidant PLUS
HOW DO I TAKE THE MULTIVITAMIN, MINERAL & ANTIOXIDANT FOR BEST RESULTS?
Science and clinical data drive everything. It is important that you know certain water-soluble vitamins like vitamin C and B enter and are expelled quickly by our cells. Studies show that replenishing these vitamins twice daily is beneficial and creates optimal levels. Take two Multi Vitamins with breakfast, and two with dinner.
IS THE MULTI VITAMIN “ALL NATURAL”?
First, it’s not possible to extract pure vitamins from plants - without considerable and significant processing. Next, the biological activity of a compound has nothing to do with its source and is determined by its chemical structure. So, it makes little difference if the chemical originates from a plant or is synthesized – it is the same compound, regardless. Some vitamin compounds can be synthesized in laboratories to reproduce products that are identical (in chemical form) to those found naturally, these are exceedingly pure and just as safe .
A common misconception is that “natural” vitamins and minerals are extracted from plants in their “pure” form, making them “superior” to synthetic vitamins and minerals, which are made in a laboratory. This is often a misconception.
HOW MANY TABLETS DO I TAKE DAILY FOR BEST RESULTS?
It would be impossible to condense all of the nutrients found in the multi vitamin to only one tablet. As an example, if we put the full Multi Vitamin dose into one pill, it would be the size of a ping-pong ball, talk about a swallowing hazard! On the flip side, if we reduced the nutrient levels to cater to a “one pill a day” type solution, you wouldn’t get the proper nutrients- that the studies show your cells need for clinical benefits.
With that said, we select naturally derived ingredients over synthetic ones. We will ALWAYS use ingredients proven to be effectively absorbed by the body and that are pure, free of any harmful contaminants, and safe.
IS THE MULTI VITAMIN SOY, DAIRY, GMO, AND GLUTEN FREE?
IS THE AMOUNT OF VITAMIN A AT AN UNSAFE LEVEL?
Toxicities of vitamin A relate only to pre-formed vitamin A, which is usually labeled as retinol, retinyl acetate, or retinyl palmitate. Beta-carotene is referred to as pro-vitamin A because it is converted to vitamin A in the body as needed.
Multi Vitamin, Mineral & Antioxidant PLUS only uses beta-carotene to provide vitamin A activity, and beta-carotene is not known to cause vitamin A toxicity at any level. As a reference, the amount of beta-carotene contained in an average medium-sized carrot is approximately 20,000 IU, while a daily dose of our multi contains 15,000 IU.
CAN I TAKE MULTI VITAMIN, MINERAL & ANTIOXIDANT PLUS IF I’M CURRENTLY TAKING MEDICATION?
