How Nutra Origin Multi Today Women's works:
Developed based on a thorough review of the scientific evidence, NutraOrigin's Multi Today Women's 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 Women's works to create a complete foundation for women's health.
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 Women's features beta-carotene, the water-soluble precursor of vitamin A, so there is no chance for toxic build-up.
Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid)
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.
Vitamin E (as d-alpha tocopherol acetate)
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.
Whereas most products use cheaper, poorly absorbed synthetic vitamin E, Multi Today Women's includes naturally derived vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol acetate) for optimal absorption.
Alpha Lipoic Acid
Alpha-lipoic acid is a naturally occurring compound that acts a potent free radical scavenger. It has the unique ability to function in both water and fat, making it extremely versatile as an antioxidant.
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.
Multi Today Women's also includes whole-food sources of antioxidants from berries (such as bilberry and elderberry), fruits (like black currant and grape seed extract) and vegetables (including Brussels sprouts, kale, cauliflower, celery, carrot, broccoli and cabbage). Plus, it features key antioxidant phyto-nutrients including astaxanthin, the pigment that make salmon pink; lutein and zeaxanthin, which give various squashes their yellow color; and Pycnogenol, a powerful antioxidant extracted from the bark of the French Maritime pine tree.
Bone Health Ingredients
Calcium, magnesium, manganese, boron and potassium are all minerals that play a role in supporting bone and/or muscle health. While your average one-per-day multivitamins usually include just a smidgen of calcium, Multi Today Women's provides 500 mg in every 2-tablet dose – fulfilling 50 percent of your daily calcium needs. It also includes 250 mg of calcium's essential co-nutrient magnesium, which must be present in the body in order for calcium to be absorbed.
But it's not just minerals that are important for bone strength. Two vitamins – vitamin D and vitamin K – are also critical for bone mineralization. Because many researchers are convinced that 400 IU of vitamin D (the current daily value) is not adequate to meet daily needs, Multi Today Women's includes 600 IU of this essential nutrient. It also provides almost double the daily value of vitamin K, which is deficient in many American diets It's a good idea to take calcium with vitamin K, which helps ensure the mineral gets deposited in the bones and not the arteries.
In addition to bone-building vitamins and minerals, Multi Today Women's further supports the health of your bones with a special bone blend, featuring soy isoflavones and ipriflavone (which is derived from isoflavones), the mineral boron, and fish oil concentrate. Isoflavones are plant compounds that weakly imitate human estrogen, so they have a beneficial impact on bone density.
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.
Other minerals included in Multi Today Women's include iodine, essential for healthy thyroid function, zinc, necessary for immunity and reproduction, copper, used in the production of hemoglobin, chromium, which aids insulin in shuttling glucose from the blood stream to the cells, molybdenum, used to help metabolize amino acids by acting as a cofactor for the sulfite oxidase enzyme, and vanadium, which may support healthy blood sugar levels.
Multi Today Women's also fulfills 100 percent of your daily iron needs. Your body needs iron to form hemoglobin, a key component of red blood cells that helps transport oxygen to the entire body. 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.
Proprietary Skin, Hair and Nail Blend
What do your skin, hair and nails have in common? They are all made from collagen – a long and strong structural protein. Multi Today Women's provides support for healthy hair skin and nails with collagen from gelatin, as well as choline and inositol, B-vitamin like compounds that are important elements of cell membranes, and silica, a mineral naturally found in hair, skin and nails.
Women's Herbal Blend
Throughout the years and across various cultures, certain herbs have been traditionally used to support the female system. Multi Today Women's includes the most venerated of these herbs, including cranberry, vitex chasteberry, red raspberry, red clover, dong quai and wild yam.
Finally, Multi Today Women's includes a blend of herbs and green foods that are valued for their revitalizing properties, including green tea, Korean ginseng and spirulina.

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.
