Naturally Occurring Vitamins, Minerals & Antioxidants Formula FREE of synthetic additives, yeast and bacterial byproducts.
Defense Nutrition®’s Plant Based Multi-Vitamins & Minerals formula provides 100% natural plant based vitamins, minerals and antioxidants in their naturally-occurring form, designed to support the body’s metabolic demand for essential food micronutrients and enhance its defenses against oxidative stress.
The human body has not been programmed for synthetic supplements. Recent reports have shown that synthetic vitamin supplements are received by the body inhibit the body’s stress response mechanism, causing potential side effects including impairment in cellular redox, disruption in mitochondrial function and suppression of muscle adaptability to exercise. It has been speculated that a overly high concentrations of synthetic antioxidants such as vitamin E and C overwhelm the cell’s oxidative threshold and thus impair cellular and tissue functions. Optimum levels of oxidative stress is needed to keep the body’s antioxidant defenses “tuned”. Synthetic antioxidant supplements have shown to overwhelm and disrupt the cell’s redox potential, causing impairments in energy utilization and loss of function.
Defense Nutrition®’s Plant Based Multi-Vitamins & Minerals was created to fill a void in today’s marketplace, it is by all means the best healthy alternative to synthetic vitamins products as well as supplements made with a blend of natural and synthetic ingredients. The formula’s plant-based ingredients are assimilated as whole food as they’re naturally utilized by the body with no side effects.
Unlike other natural vitamin products that contain yeast or bacterial byproducts,Defense Nutrition®’s Plant Based Multi-Vitamins & Minerals is 100% YEAST-FREE andcontains no bacterial byproducts. Yeast is a most potent allergen, known for itspotential adverse effects on humans. There have been serious concerns regarding thesafety of yeast-derived vitamins, particularly for individuals who are yeast sensitive.Biotech technology has been used today to artificially force feed yeast or otherbacteria with synthetic vitamins to yield a so-called natural vitamin supplement, whichis actually a bacterial byproduct that was never part of the human diet and thereforeshould NOT be treated as a natural, whole food based product.
Defense Nutrition®’s Plant Based Multi-Vitamins & Minerals formula provides Super-Food’s micronutrients yielding FAST,COMPLETE nourishment. The formula’s ingredients include extracts of stabilized rice germ, Alma berries, carrot seeds, celery seeds, arjuna, dulse, asphaltum gum(shilajit), pine’s pycnogenol, and grape’s resveratrol.
Defense Nutrition®’s Multi-Vitamins & Minerals formula contains only 100% naturallyoccurring plant extracts and do NOT contain any synthetic compounds or any“manipulated”, lab-processed ingredients.
Stabilized rice germ– the core embryo of the rice seed, known for its high content of vitamin E (tocopherols and tocotrienols), B vitamins thiamine, riboflavin, pantothenic acid and pyridoxine, minerals and trace minerals and beneficialphytonutrients including octacosanol and physterols. Rice germ’s dense nutrient profile earns its reputation as a natural healthpromoting superfood with great antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, metabolic supportive and energizing properties. Rice germ shouldbe consumed fresh or in a stabilized, dried form.
Amla berries (emblica officinalis) – highest score of naturally occurring vitamin C complex among all edible fruits in the world.Used as a traditional food and medicinal herb, Amla berries gooseberries are notable for their potent antioxidant, antibacterial,antifungal properties. Amla berries’ vitamin C occurs naturally with cofactors bioflavonoids hesperidin, rutin and quercetin, as well asellagi acid and tannins, which all together contribute to its highest bioactivity and great health benefits as a natural immunorestorative, anti-cancerous aid.
Spinach (spinacia oleracea) – a flowering plant native to central and southwestern Asia, known as an excellent natural source ofvitamin K, vitamin A, manganese, B vitamins, and to a lesser degree iron, calcium and copper.
Arjuna (terminalia arjuna)- widely used by Ayurvedic physicians for its healing properties, it is known for its cardio-protective, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant properties. Arjuna is rich in antioxidant flavonoids and proanthocyanidins but mostly is known for its high mineral content of bioavailable calcium, zinc, copper, manganese, iodine, chromium and molybdenum.
Carrot seeds (daucus carota) – highest plant based source of vitamin A carotene complex, traditionally used as a medicinal herb totreat and rejuvenate the skin. By virtue of its potent antioxidant, cleansing properties, carrot seeds have been used as a detoxifyingagent to help stimulate internal organs’ cleansing.
Celery seeds (apium graveolens) – traditionally used to enhance kidney function, relieve water retention, treat arthritis and gout,reduce muscle spasms, calm nerves and decrease inflammation. Animal studies indicate that celery seeds help lower blood pressureand cholesterol, as well as protect the liver from the damaging effects of chemical drugs. Celery seeds are rich in antioxidantflavonoids, blood-thinning coumarins and hormonal supportive phytonutrients.
Dulse (palmaria palmata) – sea algae known for its high content of B vitamins, minerals and trace minerals, dulse hasbeen traditionally used for culinary and nutritional enhancing purposes.
Pycnogenol (pinus pinaster) – pine bark extract of the French maritime pine, pycnogenol primarily contains high concentrations of the antioxidant oligomeric proanthocyanidins (ORCs) as well as bioflavonoids catechins, epicatechins, phenolic fruit acids (ferulic acid and caffeic acid) and toxifolin. Pycnogenol has been used to help improve conditions including asthma, diabetes, edema, gingival bleeding, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, migraines and prevention of blood clots during long distance airplane flights.
Resveratrol – a stress response gene producr, produced by plants to defend against nutritional or environmental stress as well as harmful pathogens bacteria or fungi. A constituent of red wine, found in red grapes’ skin and mulberries, resveratrol has been reported to induce rejuvenating, anti-inflammatory and life extending effects in animal studies. It has been speculated that resveratrol’s main mechanism of action is the activation of stress response genes that improve cellular repair and tissue homeostasis along with mitochondrial function and healthspan. Recent studies on animals indicate that resveratrol has brain protective properties, apparently by reducing plaque formation in the hypothalamus, striatum andmedial cortex sections of the brain. It has been theorized that in humans, oral doses of resveratrol can potentially offer protection against radiation exposure.

I have been using this multi-vitamin mineral supplement for years now. My wife for some reason bought some brand name replacement. It was a hard caplet and huge in size with no where near the natural power of ori's multi - His is easy capsule so it dissolves quickly and easily in your digestive track. Get auto ship is the best way to go so what happened to me does not happen to you...
