Advanced multi-vitamin for advanced healthy ageing
A recent study shows that 43 of today’s most common fruits and vegetables have lost as much as 38% of their nutrient content between 1950 and 1999. As we age our nutritional needs increase, and it's not always possible to get all you need from these fruits and vegetables.
Multiva® Advanced is an advanced multivitamin formulated for healthy ageing in men and women with optimal doses of the essential trace minerals iodine, selenium and chromium which are commonly lacking in soils and diets. It also contains methylated, or 'active' B vitamins for easier absorption. A full dose of vitamin K2 is also included to help support getting calcium out of arteries and into bones!

A recent study showing that you would have to eat eight oranges today to get the same amount of vitamin A you got from the oranges you ate as a kid.
The study also shows that 43 of today’s most common fruits and vegetables have lost as much as 38% of their nutrient content between 1950 and 1999, a study that ended more than 20 years ago.
If the nutrient content in our healthiest foods is on a steady decline, where does that leave us today?
Because, the hard truth is, for the last several decades every major illness and ailment has been on the rise.
Multiva® Advanced has been specifically formulated to help support the lack of nutrients in today’s soils.
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.
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.
Western diets are typically deficient in this particular vitamin, which comes from fermented foods such as Kimchi and Saurkraut 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. 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 particular 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.
Why should I take a multivitamin?
Many of us, even those who conscientiously make an effort to eat healthily, may not be obtaining all the vitamins, nutrients and minerals our body requires. Because we tend to consume more of the foods we like – and avoid what we don’t like – we’re at risk of missing out on the wider variety of nutrients provided by those foods we don’t eat regularly.
Compounding this risk is the prevalence of mineral deficiencies in most soils; these include selenium (for breast and prostate health), chromium, (for a healthy metabolism, insulin levels and healthy blood sugar levels) and iodine (metabolism, healthy thyroid function). Although these deficiencies are not necessarily evident in the short term, ongoing they can lead to serious and chronic health conditions. About Health has spent many years researching and developing a multivitamin, mineral and nutrient formula which meets the unique needs of the western diet.
Multiva provides optimal doses of selenium, chromium and iodine — important nutrients that are commonly lacking in soils and many diets.
What makes Multiva® Advanced special?
Unlike standard multivitamin supplements that are sold in New Zealand and Australia, Multiva® Advanced is formulated specifically for the needs of those consuming a western diet. Each Multiva® Advanced capsule contains a broad spectrum of vitamins, minerals and nutrients expertly combined to address any deficiencies caused by dietary choices and/or the absence of essential nutrients in soils.
An important antioxidant, this essential trace mineral helps to reduce cellular damage but has long been deficient in soil - and therefore foods. It is used to support cardiovascular health, the immune system, thyroid function, male fertility and prevention of cognitive decline.
is a trace mineral also deficient in New Zealand soil. Although only required in small amounts, iodine is an important component of the thyroid hormones that regulate our moods, metabolism and weight management.
is another necessary trace mineral for New Zealanders, which supports healthy blood sugar regulation and weight management.
Used to help maintain and produce new cells within the body. It can also support the prevention in changed to DNA. Its main use in the E12 formula is to support nerve health.
This B vitamin helps support the body’s nerves and blood cells through containing cobalt. As a highly complex vitamin it is vital for cellular energy production and supporting DNA.
An important component of enzymes in the body that break down certain substances like fats, carbohydrates, and others. It is commonly used for hair loss, brittle nails, nerve damage, and many other conditions.
This trace element is essential for many enzymes and protein synthesis. Zinc also supports regeneration within the body as well as brain health.
The mineral calcium is well-known for its key role in bone health. Calcium also helps maintain heart rhythm, muscle function, and more.
This is typically used to support the body’s muscles in relaxation and the prevention of cramping.
