Worrying about meeting your body’s nutritional needs should never weigh on your mind. It can be easy to let things slide a little during the summer months – long days lazing in the sun can wilt any motivation to be diligent with your diet. Fortunately, you can give yourself a little boost just to cover all nutritional bases. This is where a great multi vitamin can help put your mind at ease.
Thorne’s Multi Encap formula is an awesome option for anyone who is looking to give a multi-vitamin formula a try. Thorne is one of the most well researched companies in the supplement industry. Furthermore, Thorne is a ‘professional’ brand which means every stockist must be licensed to carry their products; because of this, you know you can trust the quality and effectiveness of the ingredients in any of their products.
Here are some of its highlights:
Dosing – This formula encourages taking two capsules, three times a day. This may seem like a lot, but there is very good reason for it. The body has a limited capacity to absorb nutrients. For instance, you can only absorb around 500 mg of calcium at one time. So knowing that you need to be getting around 1000 mgs a day, it makes sense to space it out.
Vitamin B12 – Thorne’s multivitamin contains Methylcobalamin, a form of Vitamin B12 that is more readily absorbable than what other formulas use. This means optimum bang for your buck! Vitamin B12 has wide ranging effects on the body, most having to do with regulation of the nervous system. Your body only needs a very small amount of vitamin B12 in a day, about 2.4 mcg, but it does so many things for you, it is best to make sure you are staying conscious of getting it in!
No Iron and No Copper - Thorne offers a formula that contains neither iron nor copper. This is great because many people do not need extra sources of those two nutrients in their diets. Iron is not necessary to supplement after your fertile years, (except those who are anemic) and copper is needed in such trace amounts that most people do not need to take it in a supplemental form. Furthermore, copper is a metal that many people have sensitivities to, so keeping it out of your multi-vitamin and mineral formula may be a good idea.
Thorne’s Multi Encap will help cover all of your nutritional bases. It is not intended to be used as a substitute for whole, real food however! Look at your multi vitamin as an insurance policy for your already healthy diet. By choosing a multi vitamin that is of good quality, you will ensure that you are actually absorbing what you are paying for.
