I can buy less expensive vitamins elsewhere. Why should I pay more for MultiThera® 3 Iron- and Copper-Free?
MultiThera® 3 Iron- and Copper-Free is a high-potency multiple vitamin/mineral supplement that provides a sound, daily foundation of essential nutrients important to health.† With a spectrum of essential vitamins and minerals in bioavailable forms plus added amount of vitamins C and E plus Calcium, MultiThera® 3 Iron- and Copper-Free is a premium product that healthcare professionals recommend.
Bioavailable forms of certain nutrients (for example calcium citrate-malate as opposed to calcium carbonate) are larger molecules that take up more space in a tablet or capsule. It is physically impossible to deliver the amount of bioavailable nutrients found in MultiThera® 3 Iron- and Copper-Free in only 1 or 2 tablets per day. MultiThera® 3 Iron- and Copper-Free provides up to 5 times more calcium than 1 tablet of many multivitamin and mineral products on the market. Calcium and other essential minerals like magnesium take up quite a bit of space. MultiThera® 3 Iron- and Copper-Free contains 28 important vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants in well-absorbed forms.
MultiThera® 3 Iron- and Copper-Free contains a wide variety of nutrients in bioavailable and well-tolerated forms. For especially difficult-to-absorb nutrients like folate and vitamin B12, MultiThera® 3 Iron- and Copper-Free uses active forms that are more easily absorbed and metabolized. Calcium citrate-malate used in MultiThera® 3 Iron- and Copper-Free demonstrates superior absorption compared to other forms, such as calcium carbonate. Difficult-to-absorb trace elements such as zinc are in forms bound to amino acids that assist their absorption and decrease interference by other nutrients, food components, or medications. In addition, every lot of MultiThera® 3 Iron- and Copper-Free tablets are manufactured under Good Manufacturing Practices and tested according to industry standards to be sure the tablets break down in 45 minutes or less after ingestion. The water-soluble tablet coating dissolves quickly in water or stomach acid, to release active ingredients.
Folate and vitamin B12 support a variety of critical functions in the body and are especially important to cardiovascular health as well as energy and red blood cell production.† The biologically active forms of folate (Metafolin‡ L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate, also known simply as methylfolate) and vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) are used in MultiThera® 3 Iron- and Copper-Free instead of cheaper, more common forms of these B-vitamins found in many other supplements. These forms are already fully active and do not require metabolic conversion in order to be used by the body.
Yes, the amounts of each nutrient are well below the tolerable upper limits (UL) of intake recommended by government agencies and nutrition experts.
Both iron and copper have been excluded from MultiThera® 3 Iron- and Copper-Free to address the needs of those who may have elevated levels of iron or copper, or who wish to avoid these minerals for therapeutic purposes. Supplemental iron should not be routinely supplemented as a multivitamin unless there is a documented need for the mineral, such as iron deficiency.
MultiThera® 3 Iron- and Copper-Free is best taken in divided amounts throughout the day, with meals. Three tablets in the morning and 3 tablets in the evening is generally a convenient way to take this product.
