5 things you should look for in a multivitamin !


There are literally thousands of different “Multi” on the market today, but did you know they are NOT all created equal.

Most of the known brands are cheap combination of low dose synthetic forms of vitamins and non absorbed forms of limited minerals.

I prefer the term MultiNutrient, since ideally it should be a combination of: Chelated Minerals, BioAvailable Vitamins and PhytoNutrients. 


5 Things you should look for in a multi nutrient: 

  1. Food based: Look for a multi that is derived from real food.
  2. Dosages and Ratio: Most Multis will have extremely low (and ineffective) dosages of synthetic vitamins and minerals and with poor absorption ratios. (high calcium to magnesium ratio, high vitamin A and not enough Vitamin D3, etc..)
  3. Bioavailable Vitamins: Vitamins should be in their natural forms (for example: Methylated B vitamins, D-Alpha form of vitamin E not the DL-alpha synthetic isomer, etc..)
  4. Chelated Minerals: Minerals should be in chelated bioavailable forms (Bisglycinate or citrate NOT oxide or carbonate forms. )
  5. PhytoNutrients: Most Multis are lacking in that department.  Phytonutrients aren’t essential for keeping you alive, unlike the vitamins and minerals that plant foods contain. But when you eat or drink phytonutrients, they may help prevent disease and keep your body working properly. Phytonutrients also have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that can help support a healthy human body.(Examples of phytonutrients are: Lutein, Resveratrol, Flavonoids, Carotenoids, Zeaxanthin and Glucosinolates.)
