Get a head start with the best
Multi Basics Complete contains balanced ratios and effective forms of essential vitamins and minerals which your body requires to maintain proper function. Multi Basics Complete contains a broad spectrum of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. It includes vitamin A with optimal doses of various carotenoids, B-vitamins in their active forms, and vitamin C with bioflavonoids to enhance its effectiveness. It also contains all 8 naturally-sourced forms of vitamin E in their proper ratios. Minerals in Multi Basics Complete include zinc and copper in a balanced ratio, and important trace minerals such as boron, silicon and vanadium. This formula is also a healthy source of fibre, protein and probiotics to support the immune system, the digestive tract, metabolism and overall health.
Vitamin A Complex: Multi Basics Complete contains the optimal dosage of vitamin A combined with carotenoids including beta carotene and lutein.
Vitamin B Complex: The amount for each and every B vitamin is selected for the body’s most efficient utilization. Multi Basics Complete includes B-vitamins in their most active and effective co-enzyme forms, including methylcobalamin (B12), pyridoxal-5’-phosphate (B6) and 5-MTHF (folate).
Vitamin C Complex: Multi Basics Complete vitamin C complex begins with a modest dose of magnesium ascorbate, whose activity is then magnified by a bioflavonoids mixture and by quercetin, one of the most powerful bioflavonoid antioxidants.
Vitamin E Complex: Vitamin E is a complex that consists of eight different molecules. Most supplements contain only one vitamin E molecule: alpha-tocopherol, which actually lowers the serum levels of the other E molecules. The most common E molecule in food (and in Multi Basics Complete), is gamma-tocopherol. New evidence suggests that gamma-tocopherol, far more than alpha-tocopherol, could yield remarkable results against cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s disease.
Zinc-Copper Balance: Multi Basics Complete includes a safe and optimal ratio of these two interdependent essential minerals.
Trace Minerals: The evidence is compelling that boron, silicon and vanadium are necessary to maintain good health, and Multi Basics Complete includes them all.
Phytonutrients: There are thousands of biologically active substances found in plants, and many of these “phytonutrients” have been shown to be protective, disease-preventing compounds.
Flavonoids (Quercetin and Citrus Bioflavonoids) and Carotenoids (Beta-Carotene and Lutein) are highly beneficial plant-derived nutrients that provide powerful antioxidant protection.
Phospholipid Enhancers: Choline, Lecithin and Inositol contribute to the production of phospholipids which have important structural and functional roles in maintaining healthy cell membranes.
Probiotics: Bifidobacterium longum BB536 is a probiotic bacteria clinically proven to support a healthy gut and immune system.
This Bifidobacterium has been shown to reduce symptoms and help maintain a normal gut flora in Japanese subjects with allergies to cedar pollen. In animal studies, it has been shown to normalize the immune system and prevented antigen-induced Th2 immune responses. The Th2 immune response is mediated by antibodies and is associated with allergies. Studies have also demonstrated that the bacterium prevents DNA damage induced by heterocyclic aromatic amines (HCA) present in food such as beef mix and barbecued meats. This may explain the reduced colon cancer rates seen in individuals with high Lactobacillus counts and high Lactobacillus consumption.
In one study in children aged 5-15 years experiencing functional constipation, a goat yogurt supplemented with B. longum was more effective in improving symptoms than the goat yogurt alone. Symptoms included defecation frequency, stool consistency, abdominal pain and defecation pain.
The effects of B. longum on immunity were also studied in elderly patients in their 80s receiving a flu vaccine. Two groups received both the probiotic for 5 weeks and the flu vaccine at week 3. Then one group continued to receive the probiotic for another 14 weeks while the other was switched to a placebo. The group that continued to take the probiotic contracted fewer flu cases and experienced less fever. B. longum also enhanced markers of innate immunity.
Fibre: A neutral-flavoured, highly soluble and gentle form of fibre (Sunfiber®) supports healthy gastrointestinal function and nourishes beneficial probiotic bacteria within the gut.
Protein: A full serving of whey protein is included in each serving to support a healthy immune system, metabolism, inflammatory response and cholesterol balance.
Glutamine is often used to help reduce intestinal permeability in those thought to have a “leaky gut.” In one 2-month study, the effects of glutamine versus whey protein on intestinal permeability in patients with Crohn’s disease were compared. Interestingly, both were found to be equally as effective at quantities of 0.5 g/kg ideal body weight/day.
Get Back the Balance
Getting the right balance of all key vitamins and minerals is necessary for them to be effective. In line with AOR’s philosophy, each ingredient is added in quantities based on research with respect to synergy with other ingredients and the body’s capacity to absorb and use it effectively.
The Right Forms
Multi Basics Complete contains advanced forms of many of its ingredients. These forms are selected based on absorption and effect within the body as well as the space each ingredient takes up in the formula and value.
A careful consideration of all these factors has led to the high quality powdered multivitamineral that is Multi Basics Complete with Fibre, Protein & Probiotics.
How to Use Multi Basics Complete
Multi Basics Complete is designed for on-the-go people who require easy, healthy options, for those who prefer lighter liquid meals, or as an economical choice for those who already make the ingredients found in this formula part of their daily routine. Multi Basics Complete also provides the extra benefits of promoting a healthy gastrointestinal tract, which is key to a good immune system, as well as metabolic support. With good solubility and a neutral flavour, it can be added to smoothies, juice, milk or any other nutritious beverage of your choice, although water is not the best option. Multi Basics Complete is designed as a supplement to an optimal diet rather than a replacement. Therefore, it contains less than a full daily dose of most nutrients while still providing proper balance and synergy.
Take 1 teaspoon to 2 scoops daily at least 2-3 hours before or after other medications. Can be mixed into your favourite beverage and taken with a fat-containing meal, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner. Stir briskly and drink immediately. Maintain adequate fluid intake.
