Suboptimal intake of some vitamins, above levels causing classic vitamin deficiency, is a risk factor for chronic diseases and common in the general population, especially the elderly. Inadequate dietary intakes of vitamins & minerals may result in chronic metabolic disruption; cell studies show that deficiencies in many micronutrients can cause DNA damage, such as chromosome breaks. Researchers also indicate that a large proportion of the general population is at increased risk for developing chronic inflammatory disease, in part due to inadequate nutrient intake. They recommend that all adults take a multivitamin daily
Nutrients play different roles at various stages of our lives. As we successfully advance into maturity, a standard multivitamin and mineral supplement no longer meets our needs. Women's 45+ Multi contains not only basic nutritional support of vitamins and minerals, but also key ingredients observed in studies to support female health at older ages, including a variety of special antioxidants. Alpha Lipoic Acid may have anti-aging benefits as well as may help in maintaining a healthy blood sugar. Grapeseed extract, Pomegranate powder and Cranberry help quench free radical destruction that may contribute to wrinkle formation. Bilberry, Lutein and Zeaxanthin assist eye health while soy may confer phytoestrogen benefits during the perimenopausal period.
The nutritional needs of a woman are vastly different than those of a man. Especially during child bearing years, women need additional iron, calcium and folic acid to help achieve optimum health, just to name a few. And though our multivitamin line offers many excellent choices for ladies, Women's Multi is the only product specifically formulated to suit the nutritional demands of today's women. In addition to extra amounts of the above mentioned vitamins and minerals, Women's Multi includes the amino acid L-tyrosine, lavender extract, chaste berry extract and several other herbs and vitamins critical to women's health.
Many of us know that taking a multivitamin is like a good insurance policy for a healthy life. However, getting all the nutrients we need each day can be challenging. With many juggling work, child care, errands, sports and other activities on a daily basis, it is easy to forget about taking a multivitamin. Women’s Once Daily multi contains not only basic nutritional support of vitamins and minerals in one vegetarian tablet, but also key ingredients observed in studies to support female health, including a variety of herbs, plant foods, and enzymes.
