Multi-Plus - The Secret, Stealth Supplement
by Chris Mason
When giving consideration to what supplements will populate your cabinets a quality multi-vitamin is often overlooked. Vitamins and minerals don’t have the hype or appeal of some of the more exotic concoctions. You don’t take them and feel anything. One might think of them as more of a “stealth” supplement with their benefits being much more subtle.
A common argument against the use of vitamins and minerals is that they are unnecessary if one follows a sound diet. The flaw in this argument is that a sound diet is a rarity in today’s fast paced, hustle-bustle world. Most people simply don’t have the time to eat right. In addition, there are a tremendous number of people consuming low calorie diets in an attempt to lose weight. These diets, due to their limited total caloric intake and tendency to focus on certain foods, are often bereft of meaningful nutritional value (at least from a micronutrient perspective).
In a nutshell, a significant percentage of the general population may benefit from the use of a multi-vitamin supplement. If you are a hard training individual, it is almost a certainty you will benefit. This fact was paramount on our mind when we formulated Multi-Plus, our multi-vitamin specifically designed to address the needs of those who engage in intense exercise on a regular basis.
A quick glance at the product label for Multi-Plus (see right) is all that is required to know it is a very different kind of multi-vitamin supplement. Most multi-vitamin supplements take the “everything but the kitchen sink” approach. They literally toss everything they can think of into the mix and hope for the best. We did just the opposite when creating Multi-Plus. We thoroughly researched vitamin and mineral supplementation relative to intense training. We looked for what micronutrients may be depleted by exercise.
We scoured the research to see what dosing of various vitamins and minerals might benefit intense trainees. The result is a product which has plenty of what you need, and nothing you don’t.
Multi-Plus can help to optimize your health and training results. For literally pennies a day you can help to ensure you are getting the micronutrients you need. Get yours now!
