Are you ready to see how your multivitamin stacked up when considering all aspects of the ABCs of Optimal Supplementation Guidelines?

The lowest score for this multivitamin analysis is a negative 100 points. If your score falls close to this number or anywhere on the negative side of the graph then your multivitamin may not be delivering the health benefits you’re looking for. You might want to try a multivitamin that scores a little higher using our ABCs of Optimal Supplementation Guidelines.

If you have a positive score then your multivitamin is doing a few things right. But, is that what you really want? Are you looking for a few health-promoting benefits? Are you satisfied with just feeling good a few days each month? We doubt it. You want to reach extraordinary health – optimal health – and for that you need a multivitamin that supplies the optimal benefits and reaches the optimal score of 100.

The highest total score possible is a positive 100.
This would mean that your multivitamin is formulated to deliver all the benefits of the ABCs of Optimal Supplementation Guidelines.

Just in case you were wondering, nutreince™ scores a 100.

Remember, A stands for Absorbency

How well is your multivitamin absorbed?

Your multivitamin got a out of 15 in this category. Let’s examine why.

Let’s examine multivitamin absorbency.

No. 1) We deducted 3 points for this answer because you indicated that your multivitamin comes in tablets or capsules that have not been specifically formulated to disintegrate within 20 minutes. According to the Physicians Desk Reference (PDR) pressed tablets or capsules have been shown to offer some of the lowest absorbency rates at 5-10%, soft gels do slightly better at 10 – 20%, and liquids have absorbency rates of up to 98%. If you are going to continue to use a multivitamin delivered in a capsule form, look for one specially formulated to disintegrate with in the 20-minute window needed for proper absorption.

Nutreince™ is a powdered multivitamin drink mix that is packaged in individual AM and PM doses. This insures that the powdered vitamins and minerals in nutreince™ are properly balanced and never exposed to light, oxygen, or moisture, which can degrade the micronutrients and reduce their potency. Opening a packet of powdered nutreince™ and adding it to water right before you are going to take it is the best way to insure the highest potency and absorbency. If you prefer capsules, nutreince™ is also available in immediate release vegetarian capsules that have been scientifically proven to disintegrate in the 20-minute window needed for proper absorption.

No. 1) We added 5 points for this answer because you indicated that your multivitamin is delivered in a capsule that has been proven to disintegrate in 20 minutes. According to the Physicians Desk Reference (PDR) liquids have absorbency rates of up to 98%, pressed tablets or capsules have been shown to offer some of the lowest absorbency rates at 5-10%, and soft gels do slightly better at 10 – 20%. However, certain capsules (like the ones you take) have been tested to disintegrate with in the 20- minute window needed for proper absorption. So, congratulations!.

No. 1) We deducted 2 points for this answer because you indicated that your multivitamin comes in soft gels. According to the Physicians Desk Reference (PDR) soft gels have been shown to have low absorbency rates at 10-20%, pressed tablets or capsules have been shown to offer some of the lowest absorbency rates at 5-10%, and liquids have absorbency rates of up to 98%.

No. 1) We deducted 1 point for this answer because you indicated that your multivitamin is a liquid. According to the Physicians Desk Reference (PDR) liquids have absorbency rates of up to 98%, pressed tablets or capsules have been shown to offer some of the lowest absorbency rates at 5-10%, and soft gels do slightly better at 10 – 20%. While a liquid is the most absorbable delivery system for your multivitamin, the longer vitamins and minerals stay suspended in liquid form the more potency they lose. Liquid multivitamins keep the micronutrients suspended in liquid from manufacturing all the way until consumption, which could be months or even years.

No. 1) We added 1 point for this answer because you indicated that your multivitamin is a loose powder with multiple servings in a single container. According to the Physicians Desk Reference (PDR) liquids have absorbency rates of up to 98%, pressed tablets or capsules have been shown to offer some of the lowest absorbency rates at 5-10%, and soft gels do slightly better at 10 – 20%. While a taking a powdered multivitamin and adding it to water right before you are going to take it is the best way to insure the highest absorbency, you need to be aware that the micronutrients themselves can be harmed every time that you open the container as they are exposed to light, oxygen, and moisture. Additionally, with multiple serving containers, it’s nearly impossible to guarantee which micronutrients you will be getting in each daily serving. This is because most vitamins are light and fluffy, whereas most minerals are dense and heavy. Over time, if stored in a large tub, the heavier micronutrients will naturally sink to the bottom, making it difficult to know which ones you are scooping into your daily multivitamin drink. This could become problematic, as some of your heavy, minerals such as calcium and magnesium may remain at the bottom of your tub rather than in your daily drink.

No. 2) We deducted 2 points for this answer because you indicated that your multivitamin contains sugar in any form. Sorry, sugar in any form is an unnecessary and unwanted ingredient that can deplete you body of calcium, chromium, copper and magnesium and block the absorption of vitamin C.

Nutreince™ powdered multivitamin drink mixes come either flavor and sweetener-free or use only all natural flavors and sugar-free sweeteners such as stevia and xylitol. The delicious beverages always avoid all forms of sugar. This is also great for diabetics, low carb dieters, intermittent fasting or those trying to avoid insulin spikes.

No. 3) We deducted 2 points for this answer because you indicated that your multivitamin contains likely carcinogenic preservatives. Did you know, that when sodium benzoate comes into contact with vitamin C it creates a known carcinogen called benzene? Additionally, BHT has been linked to cancer risk, asthma and behavior issues in children, and according to the US National Institutes of Health BHA is reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen. In fact, the State of California lists BHA as a carcinogen. We do not want these ingredients in our multivitamins.

 

Nutreince™ powdered drink mixes are in airtight sealed sachets and already contain natural preservatives such as vitamins C and E. They are free of any potentially harmful preservatives such as sodium benzoate, BHA or BHT. Additionally the nutreince™ capsules are also free of these likely carcinogenic preservatives.

No. 4) We deducted 2 points for this answer because you indicated that your multivitamin contains artificial colors. Sorry, artificial colors are unnecessary and unwanted ingredients that have been shown to cause ADHD in children and have been linked to cancer. In the European Union (EU) products that contain these artificial colors must carry warning labels.

While most of the nutreince™ multivitamin drink mixes are a bright and cheery orange color, you can rest assured that it contains no artificial colors. The “orangish” glow comes from quercetin, one of the antioxidants inside, and the chocolaty brown color of our Chocolate Lava flavor comes from natural cocoa powder. Additionally, the yellow color of our PM nutreince™ capsules is derived naturally from vitamin B2 (riboflavin).

No. 5) We deducted 2 points for this answer because you indicated that your multivitamin contains binders, fillers or flow agents. Sorry, binders, fillers and flow agents are unnecessary and unwanted ingredients that can hinder the possibility for proper disintegration and absorption. In fact, studies have shown that some flow agents such as magnesium stearate can actually block the absorption of the same vitamins and minerals your multivitamin is suppose to deliver.

No. 6) We deducted 2 points for this answer because you indicated that your multivitamin is coated. Watch out, because while coatings such as shellac or wax can lockout water making the multivitamin last longer on the store shelves, which is good for the manufacturers bottom line, it’s not good for you as these coating agents can make it difficult for the pill to disintegrate and therefore be absorbed.

Nutreince™ multivitamin drink mixes and capsules are free of all coatings agents to ensure maximum absorbability.

Remember, B stands for Beneficial quantities and forms.

Does your multivitamin have Beneficial quantities and forms?

Your multivitamin got a out of a possible 51 in this category. Let’s examine why.

Let’s examine the specifics of beneficial quantities and forms now.

No. 7) We added 5 points for this answer because you stated that your multivitamin has at least 100% of the Daily Value (DV) for all 20 of the essential micronutrients listed. Wow, your multivitamin really stacks up in the beneficial quantities category, great job! Many multivitamins only include small quantities of these essential micronutrients in the formulations just to get them on the label. A quality multivitamin includes them in beneficial quantities (i.e. at least 100% Daily Value,) the amount science has shown is the minimum amount needed to protect the majority of people from micronutrient deficiency diseases.

Nutreince™ is a complete multivitamin that has been formulated to include 100% of the Daily Value (beneficial quantities) for all 20 of the essential micronutrients listed? It’s like taking a daily dose of health insurance. Nutreince™ also contains 500 mg (38% DV) of calcium. While the Daily Value for calcium is 1300 mg, science has shown that the body can only absorb approximately 500 mg of calcium at one time – most multivitamins only contain a fraction of this amount.

No. 7) We deducted 5 points for this answer because you stated that your multivitamin does not contain at least 100% of the Daily Value (DV) for all 20 of the essential micronutrients listed. Uh-oh, it looks like your multivitamin is missing or lacking the beneficial quantities of some essential micronutrients. Many multivitamins only include small quantities of these essential micronutrients in the formulations just to get them on the label. A quality multivitamin includes them in beneficial quantities (i.e. at least 100% Daily Value,) the amount science has shown is the minimum amount needed to protect the majority of people from micronutrient deficiency diseases.

No. 7) It is important to choose a multivitamin that includes at least 100% of the Daily Value (DV) for all 20 of the essential micronutrients listed. You should know that many multivitamins only include small quantities of these essential micronutrients in the formulations just to get them on the label.

No. 8) OOPS! You lost 2 points for this answer because you stated that your multivitamin contains more than 100% Daily Value (DV) percentages for any of the essential micronutrients listed (except vitamin D). Multivitamins that megadose may be causing extra micronutrient competitions to occur (more on this coming up!). While it is important that your multivitamin has beneficial quantities of each essential micronutrient (i.e. at least 100% Daily Value,) it is just as important that it does not contain “mega doses” of any of those same micronutrients. Many multivitamins try to increase effectiveness by including 1000% or even 5000% of certain micronutrient and only 1% or 3% of others. This creates a very unbalanced formula, especially when you consider the fact that some micronutrients actually compete with each other for absorption pathways in the gut. If one micronutrient has 5000% and another has 3% who do you think is going to win that battle? Additionally, 100% DV usually represents the amount of that micronutrient that one would find in food. By taking a multivitamin with mega doses, you are exposing yourself to quantities thousands of times more than nature, in her infinite wisdom puts into your food sources. The bottom line is, sometimes too much of certain micronutrients can be just as bad as too little.

Nutreince™ is a complete multivitamin that avoids mega-doses and is safe for the entire family. It has been formulated to include 100% of the Daily Value (beneficial quantities) for all 20 of the essential micronutrients listed. Here again there is one exception. Nutreince™ contains 2000 IU (500% DV) of vitamin D3. While the Daily Value for vitamin D is only 400 IU, vitamin D is the one vitamin that most health professionals agree should be taken at higher levels. This is because we get vitamin D both from food and when our bare skin comes into contact with the sunlight. As humans our ancestors trekked and labored for hours in the sun, and that sunshine kept them replete with vitamin D. Even today a fair-skinned individual in Miami would make 10,000 IU of vitamin D in only about six minutes of exposure to the sun in summer and fifteen minutes in winter. It is more than likely that generations of men, women, and children have been outside for more than six minutes at a time per day, thus manufacturing far greater amounts than even 10,000 IU of vitamin D. However, today most of us do not get outside very much and with 93% of the U.S. population over the age of 2 deficient in vitamin D, supplementing daily with 2,000 IU it is definitely not “too much” and should not raise safety concerns in your mind.

No. 9) That’s good news! You gained 2 points for this answer because you stated that your multivitamin is labeled to be non-GMO. Genetically engineered ingredients can show up anywhere–even in health products like vitamins and supplements. Because GMO ingredients aren’t required to be labeled, most people don’t know what they are really putting in their bodies when they take their daily multivitamins. There have been no long-term studies to prove the safety of GMOs. We all have a right to know if our vitamins and supplements contain these experimental ingredients.

Nutreince™ is clearly labeled to be a non-GMO multivitamin, so you know you are receiving safe non-GMO verified ingredients.

Nutreince™ is clearly labeled to be a non-GMO multivitamin, so you know you are receiving safe non-GMO verified ingredients.

No. 10) You gained 2 points for this answer because you stated that your multivitamin contains at least 2500 IU of preformed vitamin A. Some multivitamins contain only beta-carotene, an inactive form of vitamin A (provitamin A), which must be converted in the body to retinyl (preformed), an active form (conversion rate of 21:1). Because of the poor conversion rate of beta-carotene, a quality multivitamin should be formulated to include at least 2,500 IU of preformed vitamin A in the natural retinyl acetate form (preferred), or in the synthetic retinyl palmitate form.

Nutreince™ contains 2500 IU of preformed vitamin A in the natural retinyl acetate form, as well as 500 IU of natural beta-carotene – the perfect balance to boost bone health, support a healthy immune system and protect your eyes.

No. 12) We added 2 points for this answer because you answered that your multivitamin contains pantethine for B5 (pantothenic acid). Pantethine is the most stable and bioactive form of B5 and does not require conversion by the body like other forms of pantothenic acid. This makes pantethine readily usable by the body. This is good news because it means that your body doesn’t have to make this conversion on it’s own. Vitamin B5 helps fight off stress by maintaining proper function of the adrenal glands, and now you may even be a little less stressed knowing you are taking the superior form.

Nutreince™ is formulated using pantethine, the most stable and bioactive form of vitamin B5, because we believe that easier utilization means greater health benefits and results.

No. 12) We subtracted 2 points for this answer because you answered that your multivitamin does not contains pantethine for B5 (pantothenic acid). Pantethine is the most stable and bioactive form of B5 and does not require conversion by the body like other forms of pantothenic acid. This makes pantethine readily usable by the body. The fact that your multivitamin does not use pantethine means that your body will have to make this conversion on it’s own. A vitamin B5 deficiency can cause increased feeling of stress.

Nutreince™ is formulated using pantethine, the most stable and bioactive form of vitamin B5, because we believe that easier utilization means greater health benefits and results.

No. 14) We added 2 points for this answer because you answered that your multivitamin contains chromium polynicotinate – (not picolonate). Chromium polynicotinate is a biologically active, highly absorbable form
of chromium. Unlike chromium picolonate, which research suggests may be linked to causing DNA damage, chromium polynicotinate is a pure niacin-bound form of chromium, identified by U.S. government researchers as
the active component of true GTF (glucose tolerance factor), which regulates the body’s use of glucose and helps balance blood sugar levels.

Nutreince™ utilizes the power of chromium polynicotinate to help you balance blood sugar and regulate glucose levels.

No. 15) We added 2 points for this answer because you answered that your multivitamin at least 500 mg of calcium. Wow, this is truly rare. While calcium is an important essential mineral, most multivitamins often do not include it in beneficial quantities. Congratulations!
Did you know that while it is recommended to get 1000 – 1500 mg of calcium daily depending on age and sex, science indicates that only about 500 mg can be absorbed by the body at one time?

Nutreince™ delivers the optimal dose of 500 mg of calcium in each daily serving, the highest amount of any major multivitamin. 

No. 15) We deducted 2 points for this answer because you answered that your multivitamin does not contain at least 500 mg of calcium. Sorry, but your not alone, calcium is an important essential mineral that unfortunately is often not included in beneficial quantities (500 mg) within most multivitamin formulas. One reason for this is that calcium is bulky and does not fit neatly into pills and capsules.

No. 16) We added 2 points for this answer because you indicated that your multivitamin contains at least 2000 IU of vitamin D3. Nice Job. You found a multivitamin that has been formulated to reflect the latest research, which shows that supplementing with higher quantities of vitamin D (2000+ IU) may be beneficial in preventing and reversing disease. Current research shows that 93% of Americans are deficient in vitamin D. In addition, it is difficult to get vitamin D from your food.

Two forms of vitamin D are available in supplements and fortified foods: vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) and vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol). D3 is the form that is produced in our skin when
We are exposed to sunlight and is biologically superior to D2. In fact, research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that vitamin D2 supplementation caused a reduction in overall serum concentrations of vitamin D over twenty-eight days, with serum levels actually falling below baseline (starting) levels. The researchers concluded that vitamin D2 should no longer be regarded as a nutrient appropriate for supplementation or fortification of foods.

Nutreince™ has been specifically formulated to include 2000 IU of vitamin D3. This is because science now suggests that quantities higher than the current Daily Value (DV) of vitamin D (400 IU) may be beneficial in the fight against osteoporosis, cancer, obesity, and Alzheimer’s. Additionally, vitamin D helps to increase immunity, increase learning capacity, improve oral health, and decrease cardiovascular disease.

No. 17) We added 2 points for this answer because you stated that your multivitamin is designed to be taken at least twice a day. No problem here. According to Dr. Mehmet Oz, “You want to give your body the right amount of fuel for when you need it. Vitamins have water soluble elements to them so they are quickly moved through your system.” By choosing a multivitamin that is taken at least twice a day, water-soluble micronutrients, such as vitamin C, that are often flushed out of your system within 12 hours, are being delivered to your body throughout the day. 

Nutreince™ is a complete multivitamin drink you take twice a day in the form of a great tasting, all natural, fruit flavored beverage (we have unflavored/unsweetened & vanilla/chocolate versions too!) or as easily absorbed, immediate release capsules. Each daily serving includes both an AM and a PM formula, increasing the probability that your body has the essential water-soluble micronutrients it needs, when it needs them.

No. 17) We deducted 2 points for this answer because you stated that your multivitamin is not designed to be taken at least twice a day. Your once-a-day multivitamin has a glaring problem!

No. 19) We added 2 points for this answer because you answered that your multivitamin contains either 5-MTHF (methyltetrahydrofolate), quatrefolic, or ([6S]-5-methyltetrahydrofolic acid glucosamine salt.

Great Job! As many as 60 percent of people are now learning that they have a genetic mutation known as MTHFR, which greatly reduces their ability to convert both folate and folic acid into the useable, biologically active form of folate known as 5-MTHF. Your multivitamin company spent the extra time and money to do the research and include the most absorbable, methylated form of vitamin B9 (folate), well done.

Nutreince™ contains 400 mcg of 5-MTHF (Quatrefolic), or ([6S]-5-methyltetrahydrofolic acid glucosamine salt, a natural form of methylated folate that does not require conversion and is easy to absorb. While the cost may be significantly higher than other forms of vitamin B9, only the best will do for nutreince™ users.

No. 21) We added 2 points for this answer because you answered that your multivitamin contains Methylcobalmin. Fantastic! Did you know that the standard source of B12, cyanocobalamin, is not a natural source? In fact, its not found anywhere in nature and must be converted by the liver into the methylated form of B12 known as methylcobalamin in order be utilized in humans (and all other animals). Taking a multivitamin that contains methylcobalamin is especially important to the nearly 60% of the population that has the MTHFR mutation. Your multivitamin gets top marks for using this biologically active, methylated form of vitamin B12.

No. 22) We deducted 2 points for this answer because you answered that your multivitamin contains either vitamin K or Vitamin K1. Well, your part of the way there. Most multivitamins don’t contain vitamin K at all, and if they do it’s usually only vitamin K1 (the form found in plants). While K1 and K2 are both part of the vitamin K family, vitamin K2 is the form shown to be beneficial for bone and heart health. Research shows that K2 is responsible for directing the calcium to move out of the arteries, where it can cause arterial calcification and into the bone where it is needed, something vitamin K1 can’t do. Additionally, there are two forms of vitamin K2, MK-4 and MK-7 while the jury is out on which has greater benefits, taking a multivitamin with both forms keeps you covered. The MK-7 form of
K2 is optimal for dietary supplementation because it has a longer half-life of two to three days, compared to the one to two hours of MK-4. Most supplements contain unprotected vitamin K2 MK-7, which is susceptible to degradation in formulations containing minerals, such as calcium, magnesium, and multivitamin formulations. A specially protected form of MK-7 called K2VITAL Delta protects the K2 in formulation.

Nutreince™ is the only multivitamin we are aware of that contains all three forms of vitamin K – vitamin K1 and vitamin K2 as both MK-4 and MK-7 (as K2VITAL Delta).

No. 22) That is a great start but, we only gave you 1 of the possible 2 points. Most multivitamins don’t contain vitamin K at all, and if they do it’s usually only vitamin K1 (the form found in plants).

No. 23) Congratulations! We added 2 points for this answer because you answered that your multivitamin contains a Vitamin E –full spectrum mixed d-tocopherols and d-tocotrienols. Most multivitamins contain only contain one form of vitamin E, alpha-tocopherol, but this is just 1 of 8 different forms. Vitamin E is split into two families the tocopherols and the tocotrienols, each containing four unique derivatives (alpha, beta, gamma, and delta), and as you may have guessed, each form has unique properties. Because of this, new research is showing that in order to get the full benefits of vitamin E you want a supplement with a full spectrum of vitamin E. Additionally, you want to make sure your vitamin E is natural NOT synthetic. You can identify natural vitamin E by looking for a lower case “d” before the word tocopherol (d-tocopherol) the synthetic source will be identified with a lower case (dl) like this (dl-tocopherol). According to research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition levels of natural vitamin E in the blood and in the organs were double that of synthetic vitamin E when compared, showing natural vitamin E is better retained and more biologically active than synthetic. Look on the label for “Full spectrum both d-tocopherols and d-tocotrienols.” Beware, some multivitamins that claim “mixed tocopherol or tocotrienols” only contain a few members of each family, make sure you are getting all eight forms.

Nutreince™ is the only multivitamin we are aware of that contains all eight forms of vitamin E providing you the full spectrum (include the alpha, beta, gamma and delta forms) of natural d-tocopherols & d-tocotrienols (vitamin E) from palm fruit.

No. 24) We subtracted 2 points for this answer because you stated that your multivitamin contains copper. Sorry, but you should know that taking a multivitamin with copper is generally not recommended because too much copper in the body can hinder your body’s ability to destroy the proteins that form the plaques found in the brain of Alzheimer’s patients. Many Alzheimer’s patients have been found to have elevated levels of copper, and in studies, it was determined that many of those effected took multivitamins with copper. In fact, the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) published a statement calling for the FDA to require multivitamin manufacturers to reformulate many of the most trusted multivitamins on the market without copper or iron.  Neal Barnard, M.D., president of the Physicians Committee, stated in his letter to FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg, M.D. “Given that nearly half of Americans develop Alzheimer’s disease by age 85, we need to urge consumers to err on the side of caution… Research on the links between metals and brain damage is ongoing. Even so, the evidence that excess iron and copper contribute to brain deterioration has reached the point where we have to take it seriously.” Additionally, pregnant woman should avoid copper in multivitamins because copper levels can nearly double during pregnancy making toxicity a concern. Cramps, abdominal pain, vomiting, nausea, diarrhea, and liver damage are all common when taking supplements that include copper.

Nutreince™ is copper and iron free and is safe for pregnant women.

Remember, C stands for Micronutrient Competition and S stands for Micronutrient Synergy.

Does your multivitamin have micronutrient competitions and synergies?
Your multivitamin got a out of a possible 34 in this category. Let’s examine why.

Let’s examine the specifics of Micronutrient Competition and Synergy now.

No. 31) Sorry, we deducted 2 points for this answer because you answered that your vitamin contains the competing micronutrients copper and zinc within the same formulation. Did you know that certain vitamins and minerals literally battle it out for absorption and utilization in your body? Its true, in medical and nutritional literature it is known as micronutrient antagonisms or competitions. In fact, the health benefits of more than 80% of the vitamins and minerals found in the typical multivitamin may potentially be negated due to these competitions. The mere presence of even one antagonistic or competitive micronutrient in your multivitamin can eliminate or reduce the absorbency of a second micronutrient, eliminating or reducing the ability of that micronutrient to perform its specific function in the body and deliver its health benefits to you.  Taking a multivitamin that is not formulated to eliminate these competitions can greatly diminish its beneficial effect. In fact, when considering 27 micronutrients found in a typical multivitamin*…  

• 22 of the 27, or 81%, compete with at least 1 other micronutrient within the group
• 7 of the 27, or 26%, compete with at least 3 other micronutrients within the group
• 1 micronutrient, iron, competes with 10 other micronutrients within the group.

The copper and zinc in your multivitamin are competitive micronutrients. Research published by Harvard Medical School states that, “Copper and zinc compete for absorption sites in the small intestine.”

(*Beta Carotene, Lutein, Lycopene, Zeaxanthin, Astazanthin, Vitamin A, Vitamin B1 (Thiamin), B2 (Riboflavin), B3 (Niacin), B5 (Pantothenic Acid), B6, B7 (Biotin), B9 (Folic Acid), B12, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Calcium, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Chromium, Copper, Iodine, Iron, Manganese, Molybdenum, Selenium, Zinc)

Nutreince™ is the first and only multivitamin to eliminate micronutrient competitions using patented Anti-Competition™ Technology. The invention of Anti-Competition™ Technology has forever changed the world of supplemental science by greatly enhancing the potential for micronutrient absorption and utilization by separating competing micronutrients into separate AM and PM formulas. This allows the vitamins and minerals to be absorbed via their natural pathways, avoiding the use of chemicals or unpredictable time-release coatings. According to the late Derek H. Shrimpton, Ph.D., scientific advisor to the European Federation of Health Product Manufacturers, the benefits of a multivitamin “may not be fully realized in those instances where the possibility of micronutrient interaction [competition] has been ignored.” Nutreince™ has eliminated the micronutrient competitions found in the typical multivitamin and allows, for the first time, the health promoting power of each micronutrient to be fully realized.

No. 31) Good Job! We added 2 points for this answer because you answered that your vitamin does not contain the competing micronutrients copper and zinc within the same formulation. Whether intentional or not, your multivitamin has successfully eliminated the competition between zinc and copper. Great job!
Did you know that certain vitamins and minerals literally battle it out for absorption and utilization in your body? Its true, in medical and nutritional literature it is known as micronutrient antagonisms or competitions. In fact, the health benefits of more than 80% of the vitamins and minerals found in the typical multivitamin may potentially be negated due to these competitions. The mere presence of even one antagonistic or competitive micronutrient in your multivitamin can eliminate or reduce the absorbency of a second micronutrient, eliminating or reducing the ability of that micronutrient to perform its specific function in the body and deliver its health benefits to you.  Taking a multivitamin that is not formulated to eliminate these competitions can greatly diminish its beneficial effect. In fact, when considering 27 micronutrients found in a typical multivitamin*…  

• 22 of the 27, or 81%, compete with at least 1 other micronutrient within the group
• 7 of the 27, or 26%, compete with at least 3 other micronutrients within the group
• 1 micronutrient, iron, competes with 10 other micronutrients within the group.

Copper and zinc are competitive micronutrients. Research published by Harvard Medical School states that, “Copper and zinc compete for absorption sites in the small intestine.”

No. 34) We deducted 2 points for this answer because your multivitamin does not separate the competing micronutrients B5 (Pantothenic Acid) and B7 (Biotin). These two micronutrients just don’t go together. Much like the Hatfields and the McCoys, the Joker and Batman, and the Republicans and the Democrats, when these two micronutrients are in a formulation together, a battle may ensue. Research published in Biochemical Journal shows that vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) and vitamin B7 (Biotin) may compete for absorption as they share a common carrier mediated uptake system.

Nutreince™ understands the hidden battles that can occur between micronutrients at four different times, from manufacturing all the way through to utilization. It is the first and only multivitamin formulated with Anti-Competition™ Technology, which separates B5 and B7 into different AM and PM formulas so that any potential competition is eliminated.

No. 36) We deducted 5 points for this answer because your multivitamin DOES contain iron. First, while iron is an essential mineral your body needs to function normally, the National Institutes of Health’s Office of Dietary Supplements, has indicated that too much iron can cause serious health complications. Because of this, you may want to take an iron-free multivitamin to avoid iron overload, a medical condition that causes excess iron to be stored in vital organs such as the liver and heart. Too much iron may be toxic—and even fatal. Second, you should know that iron supplementation is only suggested for pre-menopausal women, vegans/vegetarians and some athletes. So, make sure you are in one of those categories if you are going to continue to supplement with iron. Lastly, iron has competitions with 10 other micronutrients found in most multivitamins causing the benefits of either iron or the other micronutrients to be eliminate or reduced. If you need iron supplementation, it is important to find an iron free multivitamin and take an iron supplement on its own, separately from your multivitamin to avoid these competitions.

Nutreince™ is iron free, this makes it a great choice regardless of age, sex or diet preference.  By using the cutting-edge science of Anti-Competition™ Technology, nutreince™ eliminates dozens of micronutrient competitions within its AM and PM formulas and unlocks the health producing, life enhancing power of the micronutrient for you.

No. 37) We deducted 2 points for this answer because your multivitamin DOES contain both lutein and beta-carotene in the same formulation. You guessed it! Lutein and beta-carotene are also negatively affected by one of those dreaded competitions – and this one could really be important for your eyesight. Research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition revealed that, “Lutein negatively affected beta-carotene absorption when the two were given simultaneously.” In later research on Age related Macular Degeneration (AMD) when this one simple competition was and eliminated, supplementation that was previously unsuccessful was able to either improved or stabilize vision in 76% of study patients! The study’s developer, Edward Paul, OD, PhD, of the International Academy of Low Vision Specialists, called the discovery “ground shaking,” stating that this information “will really turn the way we look at nutrition on its ear.” According to Dr. Paul, this new understanding of micronutrient competition represents a “huge paradigm shift when you consider that we had been recommending lutein be combined with other antioxidants, which is a reasonable thing to recommend. But when these two nutrients [lutein and beta-carotene] are competing for the same receptor site, they’re only neutralizing one another.”

No. 40) We subtracted 2 points for this answer because your multivitamin contains calcium and/or magnesium and vitamin K (MK-7) but NOT as K2 vital Delta. All 3 of these essential micronutrients are required for your body to thrive! However, scientists have discovered that both calcium and/or magnesium have a chemical competition with vitamin K2 (MK-7). This causes the K2 to degrade and lose it potency very quickly…meaning there is a high likelihood that your multivitamin is not delivering the quantity of vitamin K2 it claims on its label. When multi-nutrient products claiming to have vitamin K2 (MK-7) were tested only 19 of the 101 tested samples matched the claim on their labels! That means 8 out of 10 were insufficient. On average the samples delivered only 42% of the vitamin K2 they claimed to contain; some samples contained as low as 10% of what was promised! This can be especially concerning for individuals who are taking a multivitamin with vitamin K2 to protect their heart or combat osteoporosis.

Nutreince™ contains all three of these essential micronutrients, but eliminates the competition between calcium/magnesium and Vitamin K2 (MK-7) by utilizing a protective, double-coated, microencapsulated, all-trans form of vitamin K2 called K2VITAL Delta. Because the double-coated microencapsulation protects the MK-7 from other nutrients in the mixture, mixing K2VITAL Delta with calcium or magnesium is no longer a concern.

Bravo! You must be taking nutreince™, the multivitamin reinvented, the first and only multivitamin that uses Anti-Competition™ Technology to ensure maximum absorption and utilization of individual micronutrients.
As you have been learning, when you see Anti-Competition™ Technology on our label it guarantees that your product has been formulated to eliminate over 40 benefit-robbing competitions between individual micronutrients. Additionally, because the competitions have been eliminated all of the incredible micronutrient synergies can now be realized. Synergies are like the icing on the micronutrient cake!

No. 42) We added 2 points for this answer because you answered that your multivitamin contain bioflavanoids, (such as grapeseed extract, quercetin, catechins, hesperidin, and rutin) and vitamin C in the same formulation. Did you know that by pairing bioflavanoids with vitamin C, the absorption of vitamin C is enhanced by as much as 50%? This is called micronutrient synergy. Just the opposite of micronutrient competition, micronutrient synergies can increase absorption and utilization of compatible micronutrients, resulting in enhanced health benefits. Because almost all multivitamins on the market today are literal battlefields of micronutrient competition, most of the health benefits of any synergies they contain are never realized. However, when micronutrient competitions are eliminated, micronutrient synergies act like a multivitamin supercharger. In fact, when considering the same 27 micronutrients commonly found in the typical multivitamin, from question 23:
• 23 of the 27, or 85%, are synergistic with at least 1 other micronutrient on the list
• 11 of the 27, or 41%, are synergistic with at least 3 other micronutrients on the list
• 1 micronutrient, vitamin B6, is synergistic with 8 other micronutrients on the list.

Nutreince™ is the first and only multivitamin in the world to unlock the health supercharging synergistic power of the micronutrient using Anti-Competition™ Technology.

Just the opposite of micronutrient competition, micronutrient synergies can increase absorption and utilization of compatible micronutrients, resulting in enhanced health benefits. Because almost all multivitamins on the market today are literal battlefields of micronutrient competition, most of the health benefits of any synergies they contain are never realized. However, when micronutrient competitions are eliminated, micronutrient synergies act like a multivitamin supercharger. In fact, when considering the same 27 micronutrients commonly found in the typical multivitamin, from question 23:
• 23 of the 27, or 85%, are synergistic with at least 1 other micronutrient on the list
• 11 of the 27, or 41%, are synergistic with at least 3 other micronutrients on the list
• 1 micronutrient, vitamin B6, is synergistic with 8 other micronutrients on the list.

Nutreince™ is the first and only multivitamin in the world to unlock the health supercharging synergistic power of the micronutrient using Anti-Competition™ Technology.
