Super Multiple without iron is a complete daily multiple vitamin and mineral supplement that is rich in 'green superfoods.' Green superfoods are a potent source of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, antioxidants, fiber and the essential amino acids, which help add alkalinity to our system, balance us, increase our energy, improve stamina, sharpen mental activity, and deodorize and cleanse cells.
Alfalfa, spirulina, and chlorella are packed with nutrients that help strengthen the immune system and neutralize toxins. In response to customer feedback, we fashioned this multiple formula after our popular Super Multiple II, but without iron and Echinacea.
Few diets today completely nourish the body with the recommended allowance of vitamins and minerals. According to one U.S. Government survey of 21,000 people, not a single person obtained 100% of the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for each of ten basic vitamins. Super Multiple without iron offers a complete multivitamin with optimal amounts of vitamins and minerals needed for good health.
Vitamins are essential for normal metabolism, growth, and general well being. These nutrients must be obtained through diet because our bodies do not produce most vitamins themselves. Processing, storing, or cooking can reduce the vitamin content of foods, and chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and soil conditions can also adversely affect food's nutrient content.
Super Multiple without iron is a complex formula fortified with more than 30 wellness nutrients, including:
Vitamin A for the healthy development of bones, skin and hair, vision, as well as aiding the immune system.
Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that supports the body against free radical damage, and is believed to strengthen cell membranes to support the immune system.
Folic Acid (Folate) is key to the synthesis of DNA and for maintaining the nervous system. In addition, Folic Acid is associated with promotion of energy levels and heart health.
Calcium is a critical nutrient fundamental to building and maintaining strong bones and teeth. Calcium also plays important roles in healthy muscle and nerve function.
Spirulina is a green superfood that is a rich source of natural nutrients, including all of the essential amino acids, as well as chlorophyll and carotenoids, substances known for their antioxidant properties. These potent nutrients stimulate immune defenses and promote good health.
These are just a few of the many powerful nutrients Super Multiple without Iron offers as your "nutritional insurance policy" for good health. Start protecting yourself today!
Why should I take a multi vitamin?
Vitamins and minerals are essential nutrients that the human body needs for all normal biological functions. Eating a balanced diet is one way to obtain the vitamins and minerals you need. The problem is, few of us eat a truly balanced diet. A recent (1997) study, published in the Western Journal of Medicine, showed a connection between vitamin intake, prevention, and health care costs. Amazingly, nearly $20 billion in hospital charges were potentially avoidable with daily use of folic acid and zinc-containing multivitamins by all women of childbearing age and daily vitamin E supplementation by those over age fifty. A good multivitamin can give you reassurance that you are obtaining the proper amounts of vitamins and minerals needed for good health.
What makes Super Multiple II unique?
In addition to the over 40 essential vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, this formula contains green “super foods.” These are natural ingredients, such as blue green algae that provide vitamins and minerals but also contain chlorophyll for detoxification. Spirulina, for example is a green super food that is a rich source of natural nutrients, including all of the essential amino acids, as well as chlorophyll and carotenoids, substances known for their potent antioxidant properties. These nutrients also stimulate immune defenses.
What is in the amino acid blend?
The amino acid blend is a combination of the essential and non-essential amino acids, such as lysine, tyrosine, glutamine, tryptophan, glycine, methionine, serine and others. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein that promote growth and maintenance of all body tissues. Eleven amino acids can be manufactured by the body while the other nine must come from diet. These nine amino acids are known as the essential amino acids. Although nine amino acids are essential all 20 are important to maintain good health.
Are the ingredients in the product synthetic?
Yes, Super Multi II is produced synthetically.
Are there any animal products in the formula?
Yes, some of the ingredients in Super Multi II are from animal products.
Does Super Multi II contain gluten?
No. There is practically zero chance of gluten contamination in the product. Gluten may be produced if barley grass is harvested later in its life cycle. The barley in Super Multi II is harvested long before the formation of seed stalks, and the barley grain is not present. As a result, there can be no gluten in the product.
How do I take Super Multi II
For adult use only, take one tablet twice a day with a meal.
What if I have trouble swallowing the pill? Can I cut it in half or break it up to mix in food?
Yes, it is safe to cut or break up the tablet for easier consumption. This will not affect product quality.
Can I take Super Multi II with Guaifenesin?
No. If you are on the Dr. St. Amand Guaifenesin protocol do not take Super Multi II. Many of the super green foods in this formula contain salicylates.
Is Super Multiple II safe?
Yes. Keep in mind however, multiple vitamin/mineral formulas have many ingredients, which increases the chance of possible allergic reactions.
How should I store the product?
Keep each bottle of Super Multiple II in a cool, dry place, away from excess moisture.
Is Super Multi II manufactured according to USP (United States Pharmacopia) specifications for potentcy, uniformity and disintegration. In addition, I would like to know if the product is manufactured according to CFR (Code of Federal Regulations) where applicable, for pharmaceutical grade drugs?
Multi-vitamins use (if available) USP grade and/or FCC grade raw materials. The formulations are prepared with appropriate overages to conform to DSHEA requirements of meeting label claims at expiration. The pills are checked using USP protocols for dissolution, friability, disintegration, weight variance etc. Most of the stability protocols are modeled from USP's protocols (as applicable). USP monographs are for pharmaceutical industry, not dietary supplements.
Do the amino acids from green foods in this product contain tryptophan?
Yes, tryptophan is included with all the other aminos which are from the superfoods. No synthetic aminos are added.
