Multi-Nutrients is a high potency multi-vitamin/mineral and trace element formula that provides the highest nutritional value for all systems of the body. It is hypoallergenic, bioavailable, gentle formula that is well tolerated by most individuals. Multi-nutrients 2 contains minerals in the citrate and malate forms for better absorption.
It is also a potent antioxidant multivitamin that includes the antioxidants vitamin C, vitamin E, selenium, zinc, and mixed carotenoids. Antioxidants are important for dampening chronic inflammation, which is a problem for some women with PCOS.
This formula contains B-complex vitamins that are used in the metabolism of protein and fats, and help maintain muscle tone in the GI tract. B-complex vitamins also support healthy nerve cells.
The B-complex vitamins in this formula will help control homocysteine levels. Homocysteine is an undesirable substance in the body that is often elevated in women with PCOS, especially if they are taking metformin (Glucophage).
A recent study has shown that people to take a multi-vitamin/mineral on a long term basis gain less weight than people who don't supplement.
A recent Harvard University study of 18,555 premenopausal women showed those who took a multi-vitamin/mineral supplement on a regular basis were more likely to be fertile. The researchers said: "Regular use of multivitamin supplements may decrease the risk of ovulatory infertility."*
This product does not contain iron because recent research has shown that some women with PCOS appear to have an iron overload.
