Micronutrients For Optimal Health
Multivitamin and mineral supplements are fundamental for disease prevention and health promotion. A strong body of evidence from peer reviewed studies suggest that all adults should take a regular multivitamin and mineral supplement.
Vitamin and mineral intakes in the typical Western diet are often suboptimal, and although frank deficiency syndromes are relatively uncommon, supplemental micronutrients have been positively associated with improved health.
Specifically, inadequate micronutrient intake has been associated with fatigue, poor immune resistance, reduced ability to appropriately manage stress and increased incidence of chronic disease.
The issue of vitamin and mineral deficiencies is compounded by the fact that modern lifestyles tend to increase requirements for many micronutrients.
Supplementing with vitamins and minerals, therefore, makes sense.
A recent Harvard University study recommends the daily use of multivitamin and mineral supplements for all adults, a practice that is justified by a large body of scientific research.
Taking Multivitamin and Mineral Supplements Has Been Shown To:
- Reduce the risk of heart disease
- Protect against oxidative damage
- Provide extra nutritional support during times of physical and/or mental stress
- Improve women's health
- Support children's growth and development
- Support good health with advancing age
The Metagenics Difference
Metagenics provide a variety of multivitamin and mineral products to suit the individual. Metagenics multivitamin and mineral range includes:
- Metagenics Meta B Complex - a high potency B-complex
- Metagenics Family Multivitamin and Mineral - a broad spectrum, economical supplement for the whole family
- Metagenics Male Essentials and Metagenics Femme Essentials - two comprehensive supplements designed specifically to meet the micronutritional requirement of men and women.
Metagenics multivitamin and mineral supplements incorporate the most advanced micronutrients.
Rather than simple and often synthetic vitamin A (i.e. retinol) and vitamin E (i.e. d-alpha-tocopherol), Metagenics multivitamins and minerals include natural and broader-acting vitamins like a mixed carotenoid complex for vitamin A and mixed tocopherols for vitamin E.
Metagenics multivitamins and minerals provide active forms of vitamins such as pyridoxal-5-phosphate (active vitamin B6), that are better employed by the body.
As well as vitamins and minerals, our supplements incorporate more absorbable forms of essential minerals, such as magnesium chelate. Mineral chelates do not compete for gastrointestinal carriers for absorption and are thus better absorbed, more effectively utilised and give better results.
