Picked up the multi-vitamin today from SISU. Even the multi contains the high grade formula of B2 & B6. The advantage now is that the dosage is only 10 mg and 1 mg respectfully so I’ll be able to take it three times a day for better absorption without getting too much. I take one with my dinner.

Suggested Adult Dosage: 2 capsules daily with meals.

Each capsule contains:

Vitamin A (palmitate) 4,000 IU
Vitamin E 80 IU (dl-alpha tocopherol acetate)
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) 50 mg
Thiamine hydrochloride 20 mg (Vitamin B1)
Riboflavin-5’-phosphate (B2) 10 mg
Niacinamide (B3) 10 mg
Pantothenic acid 100 mg (B5 – D-calcium pantothenate)
Pyridoxine hydrochloride (B6) 30 mg
Pyridoxine 1 mg (pyridoxal-5’-phosphate)
Cobalamin (B12) 160 mcg
Folic Acid 0.06 mg
Biotin 80 mcg
Magnesium (oxide) 50 mg
Potassium (chloride) 20 mg
Manganese (sulfate) 3 mg
Zinc (sulfate) 6 mg
Selenium (selenite) 40 mcg
Molybdenum (molybdate) 40 mcg
Chromium (HVP* chelate) 80 mcg *HVP=hydrolyzed vegetable (rice) protein
Iron (ferric ammonium citrate) 4 mg
Para Aminobenzoic Acid 40 mg
Glutamic acid 40 mg

What are the ingredients in Multi-Vi-Min?

Vitamin A: Most of our organs require vitamin A for healthy function, especially the eyes and reproductive system. Deficiency can depress the immune response, which can improve with supplementation.

B Vitamins: B vitamins work together in the support of many bodily systems and are important to cardiovascular, nervous system, gastrointestinal, skin and mental health to name a few.

Vitamin C: Immune response is comprised of a complex network of multiple actions, reactions and interactions. Vitamin C is known primarily as an immune booster because it enhances virtually every aspect of immune function. It is also a potent antioxidant as well as an anti-viral and antibacterial agent.

Vitamin E: Another powerful antioxidant, Vitamin E is important in cardiovascular, nervous system and immune function. It works synergistically with other antioxidants, including Vitamin C and selenium, and plays a role in protecting the body against such toxins such as lead, mercury and other heavy metals, environ-mental pollutants, compounds such as benzene, carbon tetrachloride and cleaning solvents, as well as drugs and radiation.

Biotin: Deficiency is associated with baldness, fatigue, insomnia, muscle pain and weakness.

Magnesium: Calcium and magnesium together are essential to heart health. Magnesium works closely with potassium, which is also vital to heart health. Magnesium also can help regulate blood pressure.

Potassium: Linked with heart health, potassium supplements have been shown to lower blood pressure. However, potassium should always be taken together with magnesium, as the two work synergistically.

Manganese: Supports bone formation and glucose metabolism, and enhances natural killer cell activity.

Zinc: Deficiency can impair immune function, male fertility and wound healing, and can contribute to eczema and acne.

Selenium: Another antioxidant, selenium works synergistically with Vitamin E. Deficiency can impair growth, immune function and pancreatic function.

Molybdenum: This trace mineral may help the body detoxify sulfites, which are used to preserve many foods and have been linked to allergic reactions.

Chromium: This mineral is essential to glucose metabolism. In fact, glucose intolerance is one of the first signs of chromium deficiency. High blood glucose can impair immune function. Supplementation can improve glucose tolerance.

Iron: Iron deficiency is the most common nutrient deficiency in North America which can cause anemia and impaired immune function.

Para aminobenzoic acid: Deficiency is associated with fatigue, constipation, headaches and irritability.

Glutamic acid: A metabolite of the amino acid glutamine. Deficiency has been linked with depressed immune function.
