The Benefits of Taking a Multi Vitamin
The world of supplements can be a confusing place, which is why at Workshop we formulate only a small edit of what we consider to be essential supplements. Here, we look at the benefits of a multi vitamin and how our daily formula hits a little different.
What are multi vitamins?
Multi vitamins are a group of supplements that contain a blend of several different vitamins and minerals and it’s because of that they’re the UK’s most popular supplement. Most will be made up of what are considered essential; vitamins A, C, D, E, K and the eight B vitamins. Aside from vitamin D and B3 which our bodies can create, we need to get the rest from our food. But although in theory, we should be getting everything we need from a well-balanced diet, busy schedules, poor diets and modern agriculture methods mean there are often gaps in our baseline intake of certain vitamins and minerals. Which is where a well formulated multi vitamin can help. Many of these essential vitamins and minerals help keep your body healthy and work to regulate hormones, boost immunity, keep your organs and nerves functioning properly and contribute to general maintenance of bodily processes.
Who should take a multi vitamin?
Most people who fail to eat a healthy diet that’s rich in healthy protein sources, wholegrains, fresh fruit and vegetables and nuts and seeds can benefit from taking a good multi vitamin, but there are those who would find an even greater benefit from including one in their daily routine. That includes anyone with a medical condition or intolerance who can’t easily absorb nutrients from certain foods, vegans and vegetarians who miss out on certain vitamins usually found in animal products, and children aged under 5. Older people may find they have certain deficiencies as they age may also benefit, while pregnant and breastfeeding women will also find they need to supplement certain vitamins and minerals.
What makes Workshop’s Multi Vitamin Formula unique?
Multi Vitamin Formula goes far above and beyond standard formulations because alongside standard minerals and minerals, it also contains an impressive array of health-promoting nutrients not typically found in multivitamins, such as alpha lipoic acid, N-acetyl cysteine and green tea, rosemary and grape extracts. Not only are these compounds unique to most formulations, but they are also severely lacking in the standard Western diet and play important roles in general health optimisation. Another reason our formula is special? It contains chelated minerals, mineral amino acid chelates for optimal absorption, bioavailability, and utilisation by the body. In addition, our multi vitamin, which comes in a delicious effervescent formula, is designed with compliance and convenience in mind, meaning it’s easier than ever to take your daily dose.
Multi Vitamin Formula at a glance:
N-ACETYL CYSTEINE (NAC) – a precursor to glutathione, the body’s most powerful antioxidant. Glutathione is present in nearly all tissues, and helps keep organs such as the liver, eyes, pancreas and kidneys in good health.
LIPOIC ACID – best known for its antioxidant propensity, but it’s also been shown to have potent effects on blood glucose control via improved insulin secretion and sensitivity. Lipoic acid is also involved in the production of ATP, a compound that provides energy to all living cells.
GREEN TEA – a powerful antioxidant that can scavenge harmful free radicals. It’s also rich in theanine to promote relaxation and reduce stress.
GRAPE EXTRACT – offers brain and cardiovascular support, promotes a low-inflammatory state and is full of vitamin K for bone support.
ROSEMARY EXTRACT – a potent antioxidant that stimulates circulation, boosts blood flow and offer immune support.
