Multi-Vitamins – What A Maze
Multiple Choice – Picking Your Way Through the Maze of Multi-Vitamins
30 years ago the question was – “why take a multi-vitamin?” The popular view at that time was that if you ate a healthy, balanced diet you had no need of additional vitamins.
15 years ago the question was – “who needs a multi-vitamin?” By now, more people were coming round to the idea of supplementing, but it was assumed that only certain groups of people needed a multi-vitamin – such as sickly people, those with poor diets and the elderly.
Today the question is – “which multi-vitamin?” Informed consumers know that multis are essential to optimum health, and we all need to be taking them.
But, with the supplement market awash with multis, most people find it impossible to differentiate one from another. To properly interpret the ingredients you almost need a degree in nutrition – is it more important to have a high dose of vitamin A or vitamin D? What does Niacin do, what is Boron? And the list goes on….
Then, if the person understands the need for a multivitamin, the next question is how many a day am I going to have to choke down? For many “good ones” is 12 or more capsules a day. Who has time or willingness for that?
The Best Multi-Vitamin Just Got Even Better!
BodyHealth founder, Dr. David Minkoff, explains why he has just added two new ingredients to his original formulation.
Here at BodyHealth we have just added two more essential nutrients to our best-selling supplement, BodyHealth Complete + Detox. Already one of the most comprehensive multi-vitamins on the market, the inclusion of these new ingredients makes it a leader in this field.
So what have we added to our Multi-Vitamin?
First, is Vitamin K2. Many people are losing the calcium in their bones and moving it to their arteries. So the bones are osteoporotic and the arteries calcified. Osteoporotic bones break too easy and calcified arteries block blood flow and clot too easy. Vitamin K2 moves calcium from the arteries back to the bones, giving us strong bones and flexible arteries.
The second addition to the multi-vitamin is CoQ10. CoQ10 is required by every cell in the body to make energy. Most people are deficient in this critical nutrient. By taking the regular daily dose of BHC+D they will be able to boost cellular energy and improve health. Who doesn’t want more energy?
Building on the Best
When I originally formulated BodyHealth Complete + Detox, I had two things in mind. I wanted it to be a whole food product so the natural substances and concentrates would mean the levels of vitamins and minerals and antioxidants would be better than anything else on the market.
Secondly, since our environment is rife with toxins, and most patients’ livers are overloaded with them, I added support for liver detoxification to give the liver the molecules it needs to remove those toxins from the body.
Good products alone aren’t all that is needed. They must work and they must easily fit into the lifestyle of the patient, as there is no benefit if the product is not taken. BodyHealth Complete + Detox fits both criteria. Two tablets, twice a day is all it takes to give a body what it needs. I give this multi-vitamin to all my patients and I recommend it to you, too.
