With our busy lifestyles it can be hard to maintain a diet that gives you all the vitamins and minerals your body needs. Not only do many people not consume the recommended quantity of fruit and vegetables each day, they are also exposed to an environment that further depletes the body of essential nutrients, whether this be from a poor diet and lifestyle habits, pollution, alcohol or stress. Moreover, a plant is only as nutritious as the soil it’s grown in and in Australia and many other parts of the world, soil lacks many essential nutrients. Certain cooking techniques can also deplete food of nutrients, whilst other nutrients are far more available after cooking. Multi vitamins cannot replace a healthy diet, however they can support you during times where your nutritional needs are increased and they can help ‘fill in the gaps’ in your diet.
Australian NaturalCare’s Multi Vitamins & Minerals is a comprehensive formula aimed at improving your micro-nutrient status and helping you establish a foundation for optimal nutrition. This well-balanced combination of vitamins and minerals may be particularly beneficial to those who are tired, busy or under pressure.
Men and women have quite different make-ups and therefore have different nutritional needs. For this reason we have developed two different multi vitamin and mineral formulas to support men and women. Women’s Daily Vitality Multi provides daily energy and stress support for active and busy women. Women are often in need of B-group vitamins, iron, folic acid and antioxidants. This multivitamin for women is specially formulated with a broad range of vitamins and minerals to help women meet their daily nutritional needs; it also contains grape seed, a source of potent antioxidants.
Men’s Pro-Active Multi is a high potency one-a-day multivitamin for men, specifically designed to meet men’s unique nutritional requirements. It has been shown that 95% of Australian men are not eating the recommended 5 serves of vegetables each day and men’s intake of unhealthy food and drinks such as alcohol, soft drinks, takeaway meals, and sugary, fatty or salty snacks, is very high with an average of 3.4 serves per day. Men’s Pro-Active Multi includes essential vitamins and minerals that may be depleted by poor dietary habits, stress, alcohol consumption, and exercise. Additionally, it contains important herbs and antioxidants to support immunity, energy production and male reproductive health.
As you age it is important to look after your health and wellbeing. Seniors often have a poor nutritional status due to poor diet, reduced appetite, and decreased production of stomach acid which can inhibit absorption of certain key nutrients such as vitamin B12, calcium, iron and folate. Senior’s Multi Plus Fish Oil has been developed to help improve the nutritional status in older people. It includes key nutrients often deficient in seniors along with fish oil to ensure a daily dose of omega 3 fatty acids and essential vitamins for senior’s energy.
A multivitamin benefits those with busy lifestyles, an inadequate diet or those wanting an extra boost of nutrients and antioxidants.
