When I read about the contents of this Core Nutrition daily, my mouth was practically watering at the deliciousness of nutrients my body was about to receive!! The problem with most multi-vitamin supplements these days is that they are just a jumble of some less important things and also more important things in not enough of the right amounts. In other words, multi-vitamins are multi-random. There are very few items on the market that actually consider the nutrients that are present in the American diet, and design an item that helps to make up for the things that we commonly lack. This stuff has all of that, and THEN some! Are you ready for this!? …I don’t think you’re ready for this!
Let’s take a look at the common American diet – i.e. meat and dairy and potatoes. There is nothing wrong with eating these foods as long as it is in balance with all of the other foods that provide us with all of the other nutrients we need! Think about it, there are 29 vitamins and minerals that are essential for us to get through what we eat and drink. Not only that, but to keep our bodies happy we need additional nutrients like omega 3s for our brains and phytonutrients which help to fight off cancer! If you think that eating all of these nutrients is easy with what we usually eat, it’s not! Meats are a good source of B vitamins, but not vitamins A, C, D and E. Dairy is a good source of calcium and vitamin D, but not vitamins A, C and E. Potatoes, well, if you eat the skin they have some potassium but let me be honest, when it comes to vegetables, you could do wayyy better!
When you dive into all of this information, it can seem overwhelming. But Core Nutrition makes it easy – it contains the nutrients which commonly lack in the American diet PLUS 7 different blends of phytonutrients that can help with challenges that we face in our everyday lives! The Nutri-bound™ Whole Food Complex packs 100 mg worth of healthy living superfoods including pomegranate fruit (a potent antioxidant1), spirulina (a complete protein and immune system modulator2), and beetroot juice (shown to help fight hypertension in adults3 and improve performance in athletes4)! And hey, this is just the 1st of seven blends! The MindBody Energy blend is a combination of herbal adaptogens that herbalists use to help stabilize body processes like mood. Then, for every other organ, you have digestive, metabolic, immune and cardiac blends for a whole-body approach to nutrition! Seriously, there are like 75 different nutrients in these blends! This is in ADDITION to the vitamins and minerals!! *Insert ecstatic swoon*
So with all of this in mind, Core Nutrition is by far and away one of the best multi-vitamin supplements that I have seen on the market. You might as well just call it a multi-nutrient because the prior doesn’t do it justice. With at least 100% of the vitamins that American’s are most deficient in, and way more of the other nutrients that typically aren’t even in other supplements, it’s more than safe to say that this multi-nutrient is enough to replenish you to the core 😉 Stay tuned for the trifecta finale in our It’s Vital Complete Nutrition Pack!
