10 Reasons Why Multiva Advanced and Nutrient Supplements Support Your Body's Health

1. Harvard scientists agree there is no arguing that multivitamins are important when nutritional requirements are not met through diet alone. [1]

2. Multiva® Advanced has been specifically formulated to help support the lack of nutrients in today’s soils. Harvard scientists say that the main purpose of a multivitamin is to fill in nutritional gaps and provides only a hint of the vast array of healthful nutrients and chemicals naturally found in food. It cannot offer fibre or the flavour and enjoyment of foods so key to an optimal diet. After a review of 26 clinical and cohort studies, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force concluded there was insufficient evidence to support any benefits of multivitamins or individual vitamins for the primary prevention of cardiovascular disease or cancer among healthy, nutrient-sufficient adults. [2]

3. As we age our bodies ability to absorb various vitamins and minerals can decrease, especially in the case of B vitamins. These vitamins are essential in ensuring the body can produce the other factors needed to keep you healthy. For example, if your body's own methyl processes are deficient you won't absorb enough B vitamins to ensure healthy production of CoQ10, Melatonin, Serotonin, L-carnitine, Cysteine and a host of other nutrients that keep us functioning normally. B Vitamins are essential for normal nerve function and maintain healthy brain and our activity function. The good news is that by using methylated, or 'activated' B vitamins, your body doesn't need to process them before using them. They can be absorbed much more readily and help your body to maintain healthy functioning and aid in healthy ageing.

4. WE Add Vitamin K2- Western diets are typically deficient in this vitamin, which comes from fermented foods such as Kimchi and Sauerkraut etc. The problem with not ensuring enough of this vitamin is consumed is that the body finds it harder to regulate the calcium throughout the body, ensuring it ends up in the right place. Calcium can build up in the arteries without Vitamin K2 causing blockages. According to a controlled study by Schwalfenberg GK. in 2017, there is growing evidence that vitamin K2 helps to support improved bone and heart health. Further studies by Shearer MJ, Fu X, and Booth SL in 2012 show how this vitamin helps to activate the body's calcium-binding actions, which can help to build and maintain bones. This powerful vitamin is included as a full dose in Multiva® Advanced.

5. Multi’s compared to dried green powder smoothies – if the soil is lacking in nutrients due to the constant growing of plants stripping nutrient deficient soils, without replacing those nutrients in the soils, microbes, insects, nutrient dense compost use, those green or nutrient dried powders will still be absent of those nutrient powders, but they will provide fibre. Fertilizers are primarily made up of three nutrients: nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. This means that there are still a whopping 52 nutrients and trace elements missing.

6. LOW IODINE AND SELENIUM LEVELS IN NZ: Most New Zealand soils contain relatively low concentrations of Iodine (for thyroid health) and Selenium – a power antioxidant that helps prevent cancer. Mild I deficiency in New Zealand has resulted in enlarged thyroid glands indicating an increased risk of goitre. [3] Auckland University states that Selenium deficiency symptoms include reduced immune function, increased viral infections, male infertility, depression or/and anxiety. Results from the Nutritional Prevention Cancer (NPC) trial suggested that 200µg/day selenium supplementation significantly reduced prostate cancer risk by 50% although maximum doses should be below 400mcg to reduce the risk of toxicity [4]

7. VITAMINS & MINERAL COMMON BLOCKERS: Smoking, alcohol and many common pharmaceutical drugs inhibit or block the uptake of different vitamins and minerals. Aspirin decreases the effects of Vitamin C interfering with absorption. Vitamin C is needed for collagen strength, maintenance of blood vessels and white blood cells for immunity. Some high blood pressure medications reduce B6 and Zinc absorption that can affect immunity and nerves. Some diuretics reduce calcium, Magnesium and Zinc and are required to take with long term therapy of diuretics. Anti-cholesterol drugs including cholestyramine reduces fat soluble vitamins A, D, E, K, beta-carotene. Oral contraceptives reduce Vitamin B2, B3, B5, B6 and B12 levels essential for mood and correct nerve function. Antacids reduce folate and iron absorption.

8. QUALITY: We make Multivita Advanced in New Zealand under Good Manufacturing Practice. GMP prevents errors that cannot be eliminated through quality control of the finished product. Without GMP it is impossible to be sure that every unit of a medicine is of the same quality as the units of medicine tested in the laboratory. Many online Multi’s are not produced in strict hygiene or under monitored conditions. We can ensure that no additives, drugs, melamine, lactose fillers are added to our Multiva Advanced.

9. Cooking damages nutrients in food: Cooking process such as freezing, drying, boiling, microwaving, frying and reheating can reduce micronutrient content especially for water soluble vitamins. It’s not all bad though. Cooking tomatoes increases nutrient content of this wonderful vegetable.

10. Increased exercise, chronic disease, poor eating habits, busy schedules, stress, pollution and harmful chemicals, people with digestive issues can all be depleted with vitamins and minerals. Multiva Advanced also includes betaine (from beets) and all the vitamins and minerals are in a capsule to enhance absorption and breakdown of the nutrients in one capsule. One capsule takes 8-18 minutes to breakdown and digest with food.
