Multi-Vit contains 100% of the recommended daily value (DV) of vitamins A, B1 (Thiamin), B5 (Pantothenic acid) B6, and Folate (B9); 125% DV of vitamin D3; 200% DV of vitamin B12; 50% DV of Niacin (B3); and 20% DV of vitamin C. We have also included a proprietary blend of trace minerals designed to complement the activity of the vitamins.
Until recently, many doctors recommended multivitamins only to women planning to get pregnant. Others believed that, in general, a multivitamin was necessary only if you don’t get all the nutrients you need from diet alone. Now most doctors believe that taking a multivitamin is good insurance for all patients.
Vitamin and mineral deficiencies can stem from many things, including poor eating habits, a very low-calorie or strict vegetarian or vegan diet, or advancing age (when the body’s ability to absorb key nutrients—including vitamin D from sunlight and vitamin B12 from food—diminishes.) Others with special nutritional needs include women who are pregnant, likely to become pregnant, or breast-feeding; anyone with a disorder that impairs digestion or absorption, as in after gastric surgery; or anyone with a chronic, nutrient-depleting illness, such as cancer or AIDS.1
Vitamins are divided into two types: fat soluble and water-soluble. Fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E and K) are stored in the fat tissues and liver. When the body requires these nutrients, they are transported to the necessary area within the body and used as needed.
Water-soluble vitamins (including the vitamin B group and vitamin C) are not stored in the body like the fat soluble ones, and need to be replenished everyday.
Most health experts now agree that supplementing with a multiple vitamin is necessary:
“Many of us strive to have a well-rounded diet, rich in fruits and vegetables. Fresh organic produce is the best source for antioxidants and vitamins. Fruits, nuts, vegetables, when included in your diet daily, helps reduce your risk for cancer, heart disease, stroke and other chronic diseases. So, why do I need a multi-vitamin, you ask? Mulit-vitamins can provide your body key nutrients that your diet may be lacking and can help prevent chronic diseases. We are exposed to many toxins in our daily life and these vitamins can help with liver detoxification pathways so that toxins are broken down and excreted in an efficient manner. I recommend a daily multivitamin supplement to almost all of my patients.” Dr. Mundeir at Surat Naturopathic (9/7/11)
