Contains 100% of the recommended daily value (DV) of vitamins B1 (Thiamin), B5 (Pantothenic acid), B6, and B9 (Folate), 125% DV of vitamin D3, 200% DV of vitamin B12, 50% DV of B3 (Niacin) and 20% DV of vitamin C. Also included is a proprietary blend of trace minerals designed to complement the activity of these vitamins.
Until recently, many doctors recommended multivitamins only to women planning to get pregnant. Others believed that, in general, a multivitamin was necessary only if you didn’t get all the nutrients you need from diet alone. Most doctors now believe that taking a multivitamin is good insurance for all patients.
Vitamin and mineral deficiencies can stem from many things: poor eating habits, very low-calorie or strict vegetarian/vegan diet, advancing age (when the body’s ability to absorb key nutrients—including vitamin D from sunlight and vitamin B12 from food diminishes.) The earth we farm for our foods and nutrition is not the same as it was in the past. Organic foods offer protection from GMO aberrations in foods. However, they provide only as much nutritional value as is left in the soil within which they are grown.
Others with special nutritional needs include women who are pregnant, likely to become pregnant, or breast-feeding. Also affected are those with a disorder that impairs digestion, and/or absorption, which can happen after gastric surgery; or with those who have a chronic, nutrient-depleting illness, such as cancer or AIDS.
We humans now require nutritional supplementation to maintain the good health we strive for and deserve.
