How Nutra Origin Multi Today Men & Women works:
Developed based on a thorough review of the scientific evidence, NutraOrigin's Multi Today Men & Women includes only ingredients with documented efficacy and safety, and contains no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. The ingredients described below will give you a better understanding of how Multi Today Men & Women works to create a complete foundation for the health of women in their reproductive years.
Every day, you are assailed by harmful free radicals that attack your cells and DNA. Antioxidants are capable of protecting your cells from these harmful free radicals.
Each of the following ingredients has powerful antioxidant activity, while also performing specific functions in the body.
Vitamin A (as beta carotene)
Your eyes need vitamin A for healthy vision; in fact, one of the first signs of a vitamin A deficiency is poor nighttime vision. Your skin needs vitamin A for maintenance and healing. Getting enough vitamin A may help you look younger by protecting against UV-induced skin damage. Your immune system needs vitamin A to help it maintain your natural resistance.
Multi Today Men & Women features a full 10,000 IU of vitamin A – double the daily value – in two different forms: preformed fat-soluble vitamin A from fish liver oil, and beta-carotene, the water-soluble precursor of vitamin A, to ensure optimal absorption.
Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid and rose hips)
Vitamin C is necessary for the synthesis of collagen. Because collagen is an important part of your connective tissue – found in the skin, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, bone, fat and even blood – it is critical for wound healing. Your immune system also relies on vitamin C to function normally, and the summary of evidence from human clinical trials indicates that taking the vitamin every day can boost your immune response to immune challenges.
Multi Today Men & Women includes 300 mg of vitamin c – five times the daily value – from ascorbic acid and rose hips. Even more than citrus fruits, rose hips are a concentrated natural source of vitamin C.
Vitamin E (as d-alpha tocopherol plus beta, gamma and delta tocopherols)
Vitamin E is taken up by the endothelial cells that line the blood vessels, where it helps keep veins, arteries and capillaries clean and flexible. Vitamin E also inhibits the production of some pro-inflammatory chemicals, which has the net effect of dilating the blood vessels. These actions may explain why some population studies have found a positive association between vitamin E intake and cardiovascular health.
Vitamin E is not one substance but a family of substances, including four tocopherols and four tocotrienols. Alpha tocopherol is the most researched form of vitamin E and is therefore included in Multi Today Men & Women. However, whereas most products use cheaper, poorly absorbed synthetic vitamin E, Multi Today Men & Women includes naturally derived vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol) for optimal absorption. In addition, Multi Today Men & Women also provides the three other tocopherols – beta, gamma and delta – to ensure a proper balance of all four in the body.
Selenium is an essential mineral and an important building block for the creation of glutathione peroxidase, one of the body's most significant antioxidant enzymes for inhibiting free radicals. Research has shown that blood levels of selenium decrease significantly with age. This may result in reduced antioxidant activity.
Some scientific evidence suggests that consumption of selenium may reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer. However, FDA has determined that this evidence is limited and not conclusive.
Citrus Bioflavonoids and Rutin
In nature, vitamin C always occurs with bioflavonoids – phyto-nutrients that have demonstrated antioxidant activity in laboratory research. At least one small, controlled human clinical trial has shown that vitamin C is more bioavailable (i.e. better absorbed) in the presence of bioflavonoids. Multi Today Men & Women includes citrus bioflavonoids and rutin (another bioflavonoid) in order to aid the absorption of vitamin C.
Minerals perform a number of different important functions in the body. Since the American diet frequently provides inadequate amounts of minerals, supplementation is often recommended.
Calcium, magnesium, manganese, boron and potassium all play a role in supporting bone and/or muscle health. Multi Today Men & Women includes 200 mg of calcium per daily dose – making it an excellent source of this bone-building mineral.
Other minerals included in Multi Today Men & Women include iodine, essential for healthy thyroid function, zinc, necessary for immunity and reproduction, copper, used in the production of hemoglobin and chromium, which aids insulin in shuttling glucose from the blood stream to the cells.
Multi Today Men & Women also provides a good dose of iron. Your body needs iron to form hemoglobin, a key component of red blood cells that helps transport oxygen to the entire body, supporting energy levels. It is especially important that women in their reproductive years get adequate iron, as this mineral is lost through the menstrual cycle. In fact, iron deficiency is the most common nutrient deficiency in the world.
As a group, the B vitamins are essential for the production of energy and maintaining the health of the nervous system, which is why people who take a daily multivitamin often report having more energy and feeling less stressed. The B vitamins also aid with protein, fat and carbohydrate metabolism. Each B vitamin additionally plays its own unique role in human physiology.
Vitamin B1 (Thiamin)
Vitamin B1 is needed to produce energy in the brain, and several studies indicate it may improve mild memory problems associated with aging.
Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin)
Vitamin B2 regenerates, or brings back to life, glutathione – one of the body's most important antioxidants.
Vitamin B3 (Niacin)
Vitamin B3 plays several important functions in the body, including maintaining balanced blood sugar levels and participating in antioxidant and detoxification reactions.
Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid)
The body uses vitamin B5 to make adrenal hormones that help the body respond to occasional stress – hence the nickname "the anti-stress vitamin." It is also needed to manufacture red blood cells.
Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine)
Because it is necessary for proper cell reproduction, vitamin B6 is especially important to cells that divide and grow rapidly, such as the cells of the immune system, mucous membranes, skin, red blood cells and developing fetus.
Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin) and Folic Acid
Both vitamin B12 and folic acid are used to produce DNA, the myelin sheath (the protective coating surrounding nerve cells) and red blood cells. In fact, a deficiency in either vitamin can cause anemia. About 9 percent of the U.S. population is deficient in vitamin B12, while another 11 percent is borderline-deficient. More than 10 percent of Americans are deficient in folic acid.
Biotin is primarily known for its role in promoting healthy hair, skin and nails.
Choline and Inositol
While not officially B vitamins, choline and inositol are usually grouped with the Bs because of their similar functions. The body relies on choline to manufacture acetylcholine – a neurotransmitter associated with healthy brain functioning. Both choline and inositol support liver health by preventing fat from building up in the liver.
Vitamin D is a not actually a vitamin but a hormone. It has been the subject of a tremendous amount of research over the past decade, as study after study points to its importance to human health.
Research has shown that people who consume higher amounts of vitamin D are more likely to enjoy cardiovascular health than those who ingest lower amounts. In fact, observational studies have found a connection between vitamin D and blood pressure, arterial health and overall cardiovascular health.
Multi Today Men & Women provides 400 IU of vitamin D per daily dose, fulfilling 100 percent of the RDI. That's important, because a majority of Americans have insufficient levels of vitamin D.
In addition to vitamin D, Multi Today Men & Women includes other ingredients supportive of heart health, including garlic oil and soy lecithin.

Many chronic health conditions are preventable. They result from years of poor eating habits, lack of exercise, or prolonged exposure to stress. Some have become so common that they do not even remember what good health feels like. Now leading health organizations now tell us that by returning to a healthier lifestyle - by getting the right nutrients, becoming active, and learning to manage the stressors in life - many of these conditions can be prevented, managed, or even reversed. Why can't theyr address all health problems and bodily challenges medically? The question has become a central topic in many leading publications. But the answer is fairly obvious: Western medicine is organized around acute illness, not long-term health.
"The US health care system is still largely designed to treat patients with acute medical problems.... 'At no point in medical school are physicians exposed to patients with chronic illness, except for acute episodes leading to hospitalization,' says Michael Lockshin, MD, a Harvard Medical School graduate and head of the women and rheumatic disease center at New York City Hospital for Special Surgery. "The result: Many patients shuffle from doctor to doctor in search of relief from many complications of their chronic illnesses. On average, people with one chronic condition see three different physicians and fill seven prescriptions a year, according to Partnership for Solutions, a research group at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.
People with five or more chronic conditions make 12 physician visits and fill 50 prescriptions a year.... "Chronic diseases are now the leading cause of disability and death in the United States, with seven in 10 deaths each year attributed to such illnesses as cancer, heart diseases, diabetes and stroke. About 133 million Americans - nearly one in two adults - live with at least one chronic disease, and more than one in 10 have three or more.... "'The present medical model has ignored many of the issues - pain, fatigue, anger - that interfere with people's lives,' says Nancy Whitelaw, Ph.D, NCOA senior vice president. 'Until their care system focuses on improved health for people with chronic conditions, they will never get a handle on skyrocketing costs.
