Having a solid foundation is just as vital for building a stable, dynamic house, as it is for building a strong and vibrant body. We thrive on numerous vitamins, minerals, enzymes, macro-nutrients and other nutrients to sustain us so that we can live a long, healthy life. However, getting these nutrients can prove challenging.
Many of us work inside and do not receive enough vitamin D, or we reach for the tasty, calorie-dense, but nutrient-poor bag of Cheetos instead of real food. Even eating some real food like grains, legumes, and seeds, may be full of antinutrients which reduce the body’s ability to absorb vitamins and minerals. Our environment constantly bombards us with toxins, that leech into our bloodstream through pollution, household products, personal care products and food as well as a plethora of other sources. These toxins also deplete our nutrients and can lead to inflammation.
For these reasons, Vitamin Packs has developed a personalized foundation for you…. because everybody is different, but we all require the same nutrients to flourish. Our foundation formulas feature a multivitamin, calcium/ magnesium, Omega-3 fatty acid and turmeric to help your body function at an optimum level. Here is what you might get when you take our questionnaire!
VP-Multivitamin –Our Vitamin Packs multi-vitamin is specially formulated to offer a balanced level of vitamins and minerals that provide you with antioxidant power, energy for body and mind, and superior ingredients for overall health. It is perfect for men and women of all ages (who are not Vegan/Vegetarian or who are pregnant, we have something specific for you). Unlike many other multivitamins that are full of low quality ingredients and fillers, our multi is free from dyes, GMO’s, butylated hydroxy anisole and other nasty chemicals. Our multi doesn’t just meet the bar when it comes to getting your daily value of nutrients, it goes above and beyond by adding organic spinach and lutein, lycopene, zeaxanthin, astaxanthin and resveratrol for an added antioxidant benefit. Vitamin Packs uses folate that is methylated, which is easier to absorb for most people and includes therapeutic levels of vitamin D.
Prenatal- Eating for two? Our prenatal is perfect for those planning to be pregnant, are pregnant or who are breastfeeding. It is full of bioavailable vitamins and minerals. It has everything you and your baby need and more including a full spectrum of vitamins and minerals. This formula includes DHA, which supports healthy eye and brain development. It also contains lycopene and lutein which are potent antioxidants that may help with eye formation and skin health in babies.
Vegan Multivitamin-Our vegan multivitamin consists of an array of multiple vitamins and minerals, combined with green whole foods, vegetable powders and special herbs, formulated without animal derived ingredients making it suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
Omega-3 (Fish oil)- The benefits of essential Omega-3 fatty acids (especially DHA and EPA) are immense. They can reduce the risk of coronary heart disease, assist in baby development, normalize inflammation, support cognition, aid in weight management, promote healthy coagulation, memory, decreased risk of stroke, and more. Because Omega-3’s are essential (meaning necessary for your body to function properly), we have added it to our foundation packs.
Vegan DHA- Our Vegan DHA is made from algae in a controlled environment and is suitable for vegetarians and vegans. DHA if not utilized in the body and if deficient in EPA, can be converted to EPA. This means that even though there is not a vegetarian source of EPA your body can create it when needed with DHA, while still reaping the benefits of DHA. These benefits may include but are not limited to the reduction of coronary heart disease, assisting in baby development, normalization of inflammation, improved cognition, reduced risk of stroke, memory, help with weight management and promotion of healthy coagulation.
Calcium and Magnesium
Calcium and Magnesium- Calcium and Magnesium are fierce competitors in the body, so maintaining the proper ratio is vital. Calcium is a mineral that is well-known for its role in bone health, but has many additional health benefits such as maintaining heart rhythm, reducing premenstrual syndrome, aiding in muscle contraction and blood clotting. Magnesium helps to maintain proper nerve function, bowel movements, blood pressure and blood glucose levels.
Turmeric- Turmeric is great for inflammation, it has an uncanny ability to seek out and neutralize the toxins in your body that lead to inflammation, while also reducing the inflammation that already exists. We all have inflammation and keeping it at bay can help prevent diseases as well as aches and pains! This highly prized and coveted golden spice can be found in ancient Ayurvedic texts written 2500 years ago. It’s widely used in middle eastern cuisine and in supplement form it can be concentrated for therapeutic use, leading to a healthier you!
