Nearly every body system requires natural minerals for normal physiological functions, with each mineral playing a unique and critical role. Without the correct mineral in adequate amounts, enzymatic processes are hindered and vitamin function is diminished. Isolated minerals are often difficult to absorb and utilize by the body. MegaFood delivers these nutrients within a FoodState concentrate of Saccharomyces cerevisiae which also provides synergistic enzymes, cofactors and phytonutrients necessary for proper utilization and retention by your body.
If someone has food sensitivities, can they consume the multivitamins?
Because MegaFood's products contain whole food, there is a potential for those with food allergies to have sensitivities to their products. However, please note that the majority of their products are free from most common allergens: wheat, corn, gluten, dairy, and soy.
Vitamins upset my stomach; will I have a problem digesting MegaFood's vitamins and minerals?
MegaFood's supplements are crafted with whole foods. MegaFood uses a range of colorful whole foods rich in natural enzymes including oranges, carrots, brown rice, nutritional yeast, broccoli, blueberries and cranberries. Not only are these foods gentle on the stomach, but the natural process of digestion liberates the whole food nutrients, which are in the ideal form to be efficiently utilized by the body.
Is there any yeast in the products?
MegaFood uses Saccharomyces cerevisiae, a nutritional yeast, to deliver a variety of their FoodState Nutrients.
Are all of the products gluten, dairy and soy free?
All of their products are tested and verified to be free of gluten, in addition to dairy and soy.
Are the products Kosher?
Many of their products are Kosher as denoted by the Circle K seal on their label.
Why are the products not Organic?
While they do use organic botanicals and seek organic and sustainable foods whenever possible, MegaFood has also made a commitment to supporting smaller and local farms. Even though their fruits and vegetables may come from farms that choose not to use pesticides and herbicides and may meet the requirements set out by the USDA for organic products, they may not have actually gone through the process of becoming certified organic. Because of this, MegaFood has taken on the added step of having every product lot that they produce tested to be sure it is free of herbicides and pesticides. This allows them to stay true to their intention of supporting small and local farmers while still enabling them to guarantee a pure product.

MegaFood is committed to real because they like the way real makes you feel, and they like the way it makes them feel. MegaFood likes the feeling of working with real organic farmers and real local natural retailers-of being a small, honest, rooted-in-real New Hampshire company. They like the feeling of being real, using real, making real.
"You're already making good choices-we want to make it even easier."
Thinking about what goes into their supplements is not something many people do. But fortunately for you, that's all MegaFood thinks about. Their mission is to feed your body and nourish your soul, so that you feel your absolute best self: prepared for the day, fueled with energy, filled with confidence.
"We take real nutrition really seriously, so you can get out there and have a blast."
MegaFood is, as the name suggests, more. Yes, it costs a little more. But more real, more pure, more commitment to giving your body exactly what it needs is worth a little more.
MegaFood workers look at their jobs by asking the question, "How many lives have we improved today, this month, this year?" This includes not only their own lives and the lives of their fellow MegaFood teammates, but the lives of every person that their vitamins reach. They want you to love their company as much as they do. They read the stories you send in. They keep MegaFood inspired and motivated to keep doing what they are so passionate about every day.
