Multivitamins Part 2: Core Components of a Multivitamin

We’ve helped you figure out why a multivitamin is so important for your lifestyle, so now it’s time to go deep and discover what’s in your multi — the vitamins, minerals, and food-based blends that help support your every day.*

Multivitamins are composed of essential micronutrients that help your body function at its best. These micronutrients are made up of vitamins like vitamin D and C and minerals including magnesium, calcium, and zinc, just to name a few.

Creating the perfect multivitamin involves far more than simply throwing a bunch of vitamins and minerals together and tossing them in a bottle. Premium multivitamins like ours are crafted by scientists who carefully consider each component to ensure the optimal delivery of essential vitamins and minerals. These vitamins and minerals help fill nutritional gaps, which can happen even with the healthiest of diets.

These popular micronutrients are the “building blocks” of a multivitamin.

  • Calcium is helps support healthy bones.*
  • Vitamin D is also essential for healthy bones, but it also helps build strong teeth, supports the immune system, and helps your body absorb calcium.*
  • Vitamin C is generally associated with immune support, but it’s also key to building connective tissues that support healthy hair, skin, and nails.*
  • Zinc is a key component to over 300 reactions throughout the body and is important to both immune function and men’s health.*
  • Magnesium is a key mineral for healthy muscle function.*
  • B-Vitamins, such as thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B6, folic acid, vitamin B12, and biotin, support your energy, helping you thrive every day.*
  • Vitamin B-12, in addition to supporting the formation of cellular energy, also supports the healthy function of the nervous system and the formation of red blood cells.*
  • Selenium is a great antioxidant known to support immune and thyroid function.*

While vitamins and minerals are the core of any solid multivitamin formula, Alive!® Multivitamins go above and beyond with food-based blends like our Daily Greens™ or Orchard Fruits™ and Garden Veggies™ powder blends. Nutrients that are essential for men’s health, like zinc, or for women, like iron or calcium, may be added to or found in greater amounts in our gender-specific formulas.
