Why should you take a multivitamin? And why is a whole food multi the best choice?
Multivitamins were once a staple of a well-rounded wellness routine, used to minimize nutrient deficiencies from what may be inadequate in our diets. Multi’s have a key role to play in preventative health, particularly in light of evidence that suggests that the average Canadian is lacking in various essential nutrients.
In 2012 a study by Health Canada found that up to a third of Canadians have inadequate dietary intakes of vitamin C, B12, folate, B6, and zinc! Clearly a good quality multi that provides essential vitamins to the body is a simple and necessary factor in daily health and disease prevention for many people. Bring back the daily multi!
MegaFood recognizes the power of nutrients in their original food form. MegaFood uses freshly harvested carrots, oranges, cabbage, broccoli, brown rice, blueberries, cranberries, beets, and nutritional yeast to provide nutritional support to the body.
At MegaFood, farm-fresh foods are picked when ripe, frozen, and pureed to make them more digestible. A FoodState nutrient complex is created through the use of this frozen “slushy” food base and a particular nutrient, along with plant enzymes and lots of time. The enzymes help to integrate the nutrient into the food matrix in order to deliver a therapeutic dose to the body.
The final product supplies vitamins and minerals to the body in a form recognizable as food, and also delivers the cofactors, enzymes, and phytonutrients of real farm-fresh foods as well!
