Benefits of Doctor's Best Best Multiple
Best Multiple has unique positive features not found together in other multipl vitamin-mineral supplements:
- Provides optimal nutrient allowances in just 3 capsules per day. Multiples that recommend taking one or two capsules a day cannot squeeze sufficient amounts into this small mass, and often take "shortcuts".
- Avoids common "shortcuts" that compromise product quality. For example, it avoids providing magnesium as magnesium oxide, which is known to be poorly absorbed.
- Unique source for potent plant vitamin D3. Their Vitashine D3 is organically prepared from a sustainable plant source and certified by the prestigious UK Vegan Society.
- Supplies B vitamins in their best-utilized form. Most multiples use B vitamin forms ("vitamers") that are poorly utilized. This formulation does not compromise.
- Omits synthetic folic acid. This artificial folate is poorly utilized compared to other folate vitamers. This formulation supplies fully active folate.
- Ensures Vitamin B12 fully active for dietary repletion. Virtually all multiples provide insufficient vitamin B12. This formulation provides 1000 mcg of fully active B12 to help ensure excellent absorption.
Doctor's Best Questions & Answers
I am somewhat confused on how to take the DRB products. On many of the labels the Suggested Adult Use will list something along the lines of: Take 2 capsules daily, but it does not state whether they should be taken together or separately. What is the correct usage?
Unless otherwise specified on the label, the product may be taken together or separately.
Is there a limit to how many vitamins can be taken safely in one day?
While our bodies need vitamins and minerals, like other things, if taken in large amounts they may adversely affect health. Large amounts of anything can be toxic. It is important to follow all label directions and discuss any concerns with your physician.
What are the other ingredients and why are they used?
These are used as flow agents and aid in the production to keep the machinery running smoothly and the capsules filling correctly. Similarly for the croscarmellose sodium, which is cellulose (sourced from the cell walls of green plants), and is used to help disintegrate the tablet in the stomach.
Since Doctor's Best does not manufacture its supplements, how are the purity and integrity of supplements verified? In addition, how are your prices lower than other brands? Does this mean that quality is being compromised?
Doctor's Best supplements are manufactured in teh US at cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practice) certified facilities. All of their manufacturers and suppliers go through their vendor qualification program, which includes inspections and testing, before they agree to work with them. Their finished products have also been tested at the raw material level, in process, and as a finished product to ensure safety and quality. They place the highest importance on safety and quality and do not compromise for the sake of a better price point. The price points are lower because of production size and the overall business structure. They also place great importance on making their supplements available and affordable to those who need them most.
What is HPLC?
HPLC stands for "High Performance Liquid Chromatography". This is an analytical lab testing method that is used to quantify the active ingredients. It is considered to be a very sensitive and accurate test. HPLC testing is a tool recognized as a quality benchmark for herbal extracts.
