“Warning: Your Multivitamin May Not Be All it Claims To Be…”
If you’re like most people…
If you have a hectic lifestyle and rely at all on processed or fast foods, chances are you don’t get all the healthy nutrients you need from your diet.
Ideally, it would be best for you to receive all your nutrition from high quality unprocessed foods. Unfortunately, I realize it may not be practical or possible for you to do that 100% the time.
So, if you currently supplement your diet by taking a multivitamin every day, good for you. You’re obviously a forward-thinking person who knows that you need the protection and fortification that a good multivitamin provides.
And if you make sure your spouse takes one every day, then you deserve extra kudos for showing how much you care about your loved one.
Multivitamins help promote your optimal health and strong immune system, providing support for defense against a growing number of health concerns.
Taking pro-active steps, including taking a multivitamin to help maintain and boost good health and wellness, is about the best thing you can do for yourself — and your health.
However, there are important issues for you to consider…
Is Your Vitamin Natural or Synthetic?
How do you know if your synthetic multi is as good as its advertising says it is?
Are you gambling with your health by taking “their” word for it? If you are taking a multivitamin, this is something you definitely want to find out.
Please don’t make the mistake of shopping for supplements at discount stores or large chains like Wal-Mart or Walgreen’s. In my opinion, these are classic examples of companies that primarily use cheap synthetic supplements.
Synthetic alternatives to whole foods are known as “isolates”. Your body will only absorb a small percentage of an isolate form of vitamins and minerals — and utilize even less (Your body absorbs much more of the whole food form.) On top of that, there may be side effects, depending on the quality of the isolate.
Don’t sell yourself short! Many retail outlets and online sellers are primarily interested in your money, not your health. Supplements are not their specialty.
You wouldn’t go to your local burger joint for a nice filet mignon, would you? The same attitude should apply to your health products.
Consider these items when choosing a supplement:
- If the ingredients were all natural, it would say so — very prominently — on their label.
- If the product went through vigorous quality control, you can bet that it would be mentioned — many times.
- If there were no additives or major potential allergens in the product, they would definitely tell you all about it.
Additionally, the ingredients many companies use are not only synthetic, but there is a likelihood they may not have been thoroughly tested for purity and potency confirmation — and may have come from overseas.
The manufacturers will often base their claims solely on the word of their suppliers.
The suppliers’ word may be good enough for them, but is it good enough for you and your family?
I don’t think so!
That is why I chose the manufacturer of my product very carefully. It meets the most stringent standards in the industry today, ensuring that the end product is exactly what it says it is!
I’m very pleased to give you a new choice of multivitamin. You’ve trusted me in the past to provide you with supplements that are safe and natural, as well as ‘head and shoulders’ above their synthetic counterparts.
Well, I believe we knocked it out of the park this time.
My team and I have been working for many months to develop the ideal multivitamin — and the best manufacturer to produce it.
Each dose is chock-full of essential vitamins, minerals and ever-important antioxidants*. Everything you expect in a good multivitamin is there, plus everything you’d expect from Dr. Mercola– all natural, free of ALL major potential allergens, and absolutely FREE of ANY additives*.
Unlike many of those other multivitamins you see being sold everywhere, my Whole Food Multivitamin is made from raw foods. That makes them as close to natural as I could get, meaning that they are more readily absorbed and used by your body*.
Just as important as being raw foods-based is the manufacturer I chose to create my multivitamin. This award winning company is not only ISO 9001 and ISO 17025 certified, it’s also NSF certified. A very high standard indeed!
A Quick Look at the Importance of Vitamins and Minerals
Perhaps you wonder why vitamins and certain minerals are so important, and why you need to supplement your daily intake of them…
Each vitamin plays an important role in maintaining your normal bodily functions, repairing cellular and tissue damage, and maintaining your optimal wellness*.
But to explain each one could double the length of this letter, so I’ll give you a brief overview of a few. Plenty of information about them is available on my site and on the internet.
- Coenzyme Forms of Vitamins. I use the amino acid chelate of minerals, which is one of the best possible forms you can use. In a nutshell, this increases their bioavailability, meaning that the important minerals will easily pass through your intestinal walls*. This is unlike many other cheap brands, whose larger mineral size may be blocked altogether.
- Iodine — Necessary for the normal metabolism of your cells*. Metabolism is the process of converting your food into energy. You need iodine for normal thyroid function and for the production of thyroid hormones*.
- Chromium — Important in your ability to metabolize fats and carbohydrates*. Chromium stimulates fatty acid and cholesterol synthesis, which are important for your brain function and other body processes*. It is an activator of several enzymes, which are needed to drive numerous chemical reactions necessary to life*. Chromium is also important in insulin metabolism*.
- Phytonutrients From Whole Food Concentrates. These phytonutrients (or plant nutrients) are loaded with powerful antioxidants that limit free radical production*. Extracts include those from pomegranate, white tea, green tea, grape seed (Activin), apple, blueberry, broccoli, cranberry, kale, orange, prune, raspberry, spinach, and strawberry.
As I mentioned before, chances are pretty high that you’re not getting all these important vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients in your daily diet.
CAUTION: Children should not take this multivitamin. It was designed specifically for adult needs.
Most of the nutrients in this formula can be directly linked to their natural source. For instance — iodine from kelp.
Where it was impossible or impractical to link them directly, I chose a form that provided the most bioavailability possible — so your body can readily utilize them*.
The importance of whole or raw foods cannot be overstated. In fact, I would encourage you to get at least 50% of your diet from raw foods.
Just as it implies, raw foods are foods that have not been cooked or heated in any way. Look at some of the things heat does to once-healthy foods:
- Essential nutrients are depleted, altered or destroyed altogether
- Toxic substances can be created and may burden the immune system
- Enzymes, which are important to digestion, are destroyed
- Your body metabolizes cooked food much differently
All of that has been avoided, simply by using ingredients derived from healthy raw foods.
See for yourself the foods I’ve chosen for Whole Food Multivitamin, and take a quick look at the benefits you can expect from them:
- Pomegranate extract — to support your healthy circulation*
- White tea extract — support for your immune system*
- Green tea extract — more support for your immune system*
- Grape seed extract (Activin) — support for your healthy circulation and cholesterol level*
- Apple — support your immune system and lungs *
- Blueberry — support for your urinary tract and immune system*
- Broccoli — support for your healthy prostate and immune system*
- Cranberry — support for your urinary tract and cardiovascular system*
- Kale — support for your healthy prostate*
- Orange — support for your immune system*
- Prune — support for your brain and immune system*
- Raspberry — support for those healthy cholesterol levels*
- Spinach — support for your healthy immune and cardiovascular systems*
- Strawberry — more support for your healthy immune and cardiovascular systems*
To get an equal amount of nutrients and antioxidants from your diet, you’d need to eat a boatload of fruit and vegetables. But I don’t recommend it. In my opinion, eating too much fruit can lead to blood sugar concerns.
