Why Complete Multivitamin Is The Game-Changer That Your Supplement Cabinet Has Been Missing Αll This Time
Multivitamins are like the Macgyver of supplements, right? These days, details on the actual ingredients (as well as their exact origins) often remain uncertain, making it difficult to know if what we're taking. Luckily, for those of us who still want to provide our bodies with all the necessary nutrients, the Complete Multivitamin by Mother Earth Products is here to shake things up. This nutrient blend contains all the right ingredients and doesn’t contain dubious ingredients which shouldn't be there in the first place. If you want to do your body justice and provide it with the nutrients it needs, these reasons will convince you to get your Complete Multivitamin today.It's What's (Not) Inside That Counts
While most brands aim their attention to the ingredients they want to put inside their multivitamins, we took a different approach. We focused on every element that is known to harm the human body and did not put those into our vitamin. After extensive research, here are the nutrients that didn't make the cut, and the scientific reasons behind our choice.
- Synthetic Vitamin A or Beta-Carotene
Vitamin A and beta-carotene are considered the most dominant form of provitamin A carotenoid, which means that it converts into vitamin A if the body runs low. Unfortunately, most supplements feature the synthetic form of these elements, which can't always live up to the real deal. We made sure the synthetic version of these nutrients stayed as far away from the Complete Multivitamin as possible.
- Synthetic Vitamin E (Dl-Alpha-Tocopherol-Acetate)
Vitamin E is one of those nutrients we need but often fail to get enough of, but there may be a reason for that: vitamin E occurs in eight natural chemical forms, only one of which (alpha-tocopherol(1)) matches to the requirements for the human body. This substance comes in more than one type, two being d-alpha-tocopherol and dl-alpha-tocopherol-acetate (DATA). While the first form is perfect for human consumption, there are some issues with the second. DATA is a synthetic version of the first form and is less bioavailable(2) and half as potent. That means that you need to consume large quantities of the source to meet the recommended intake of the vitamin, which is ill-advised.
- Cyanocobalamin (Vitamin B12's Source)
Vitamin B12, known as cobalamin, is a water soluble vitamin that plays a vital role in the formation of red blood cells and the normal function of the brain and the nervous system. Cyanocobalamin is the lab created version of the vitamin that consists of cyanine and cobalamin. Once inside the body, this compound is split, and unfortunately, while cobalamin does its part sufficiently, the cyanide(3) may block the electron transport chain of the mitochondria (powerhouses of our cells).
- Artificial Coloring
We didn't want artificial coloring anywhere near our brand new multivitamin. These synthetic substances are linked to a variety of health issues such as ADHD(4) and mitochondrial disruption(5). The ones we deliberately put on our blacklist include Yellow#6, Blue#2, Red#40, and FD#C.Shocking PSA:
Most of these harmful substances - which we left out of our complete multivitamin on purpose - are often found in popular multivitamin brands.
Choosing The Right Nutrients
Once we knew which substances had no place in our multivitamin, we focused on the supplements that are helpful to the body. We also added a bunch of other nutrients, which would make this multivitamin more efficient. Here is our nutrient dream team, and the science backed reasons behind our decisions.
- Vitamin E
Meet Vitamin E. This oft neglected nutrient functions as a potent antioxidant(6) by neutralizing the adverse effect of toxins and helping us flush them away efficiently. We included the natural form of vitamin E (d-alpha-tocopherol-acetate), which is far more potent and safe than the synthetic one.
- Beta-Carotene (CaroCare)
From keeping your skin fresh and youthful to boosting respiratory health, beta-carotene(7) is a must have; however, the synthetic version of the nutrient may not always be the safest choice. We made sure you get exactly what you need in the most natural form possible. Made entirely out of plants and minerals, CaroCare Beta-Carotene is a natural alternative to all the synthetic forms of vitamins out there.
- Vitamin B12
Another nutrient to join our multivitamin dream team is vitamin B12, or methylcobalamin. Unlike other forms of the vitamin (see: cyanocobalamin), this one is naturally occurring in animal-based foods, making it more bioavailable for the human body. This form of the vitamin can help you keep heart disease(8) at bay.
This B vitamin occurs naturally in many foods, folate is part of several bodily functions(9), like red blood cell formation and growth, as well as DNA synthesis. This nutrient(10) is known for preventing cognitive impairment, heart diseases, and even cancer. Since we couldn't ignore all these health benefits, we decided to make folate part of our Complete Multivitamin in the purest form possible - Quatrefolic.
- Lycium (Goji Berry)
Goji berries have evolved into one of the top superfoods of our era; however, even if it's packed with nutrients, this superfood is known for its antioxidant capacity. Studies(11) show that this berry can significantly prevent or reduce any toxin related health issues (lack of energy, mental performance, and even mood disorders) in just 30 days.
Choline is an essential nutrient that plays a vital role in healthy brain development(12) and function and muscle movement. It even supports your energy levels(13) to helps you maintain a healthy metabolism.
Boron promotes healthy, reduces inflammation, and optimizes the use of hormones throughout the body. We simply had to include it in our multivitamin dream team and give it a chance to work its magic on your health.
Vanadium may be the missing link between you and a diabetes proof metabolism. Research(15) shows that this nutrient mimics the function of insulin, helping you prevent the metabolic disease and attenuate its symptoms. Vanadium is also linked to a variety of other health benefits, from enhancing your weight lifting(16) performance to preventing cancer(17).
Entering the Comfort Zone
How many times have you tried to swallow a vitamin only to find yourself pushing it down your throat? We made sure the Complete Multivitamin has the perfect coating for an adult to swallow without causing any discomfort. We also tried to keep the price as low as possible so everyone can have a chance at long term health. Don't let the long and well researched ingredient list fool you. This multivitamin is actually very affordable.
Multivitamins have always found a way to stir up an impressive amount of confusion, and the Complete Multivitamin by Mother Earth Products is here to take the guesswork out of the process and make our bodies whole again.References:
