Product Description

Vitamins are essential for life.[1] We need to either consume them in our diet or supplement our diets with vitamins. At ATP Science, we would prefer the world to eat incredibly healthy. Unfortunately, this is nearly impossible as our basic food has changed a lot over the years and we all eat some processed foods.[2] We also suffer excessive stress in our lives or take drugs that increase the requirements of certain nutrients. We also have unique genes, and some of us merely require more of a particular nutrient or nutrients.

Thus, it may be a good idea to ensure we all take a food-based, natural supplement with naturally occurring/non-synthetic vitamins to ensure we are getting optimal amounts of nutrients. Multifood is just that. It is a food-based multivitamin with no synthetic vitamins added. Multifood has fat- and water-soluble vitamins. Below is a summary of what is in Multifood.

Vitamin A

Vitamin A is an “essential” nutrient, meaning our bodies cannot make it, and it must be included in our diet. It is fat-soluble and stored in our liver bound to protein until it is needed and transported out to the site of deficiency or increased demand.[3]

Provitamin A is found in such foods as carotenoids and is converted in part into retinol. Beta-carotene, alpha-carotene, and beta-cryptoxanthin are the most common carotenoids, with beta-carotene being the most easily converted into retinol. Carotenoids are found naturally in many fruits and vegetables.[4]

Vitamin D2

Vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) is found in some plants, and Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is the one synthesized in the body from cholesterol by irradiation of sterols in the skin by UV rays.

Every second person is vitamin D deficient. Almost 50% of the population worldwide.[5] An estimated 1 billion people worldwide, across all ethnicities and age groups, have a diagnosed vitamin D deficiency. This may be attributed to lifestyle (for example, reduced outdoor activities, sunscreen) and environmental (for example, air pollution, atmospheric changes, and filtered sunlight) factors that minimize exposure to sunlight, which is required for ultraviolet-B (UVB)-induced vitamin D production in the skin.[6]

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin utilized in cellular antioxidant defense systems. As we cannot synthesize Vitamin E within our body, it must be exclusively obtained from our diet. It is often found in foods such as nuts and seeds and given that there are a lot of people on a restricted diet, some people may not be eating enough healthy fats, such as the ones found in nuts and seeds.[7] Also, many individuals suffer from nut allergies, which excludes this food source from many individuals’ diets. This may contribute to Vitamin E deficiency.

Natural B Vitamins

Most people have heard of B Vitamins. The term “B complex” vitamins refer to the group of water-soluble B vitamins that work together in the body.

For example, The B complex group work together to help maintain healthy levels of homocysteine;

Vitamin B6 is critical for the function of more than 100 enzymes in the body and also has roles in cellular and amino acid metabolism, cognitive function, and the immune system. It can help to maintain healthy levels of homocysteine.[8]

Folate is also involved with amino acid metabolism and in the synthesis of DNA and RNA and drives methylation to maintain healthy homocysteine levels.[9] The enzyme used requires riboflavin (B2) to function, so it is important to have proper levels of B2 present to allow healthy functioning of the other B vitamins. The right level of niacin (B3) is also important for the body to continue methylation and maintain normal levels of homocysteine.[10][11]

Vitamin C

Ascorbic acid (AA), also known as vitamin C, is a small carbohydrate molecule first identified in the 1920s. Ascorbic acid deficiency is known as scurvy and has a prevalence of 7% in the US population[12]. Natural sources of vitamin C are citrus fruits, green leafy vegetables, strawberries, papaya, broccoli, (probably the foods we often don’t eat enough of).[13] Vitamin C is essential for the biosynthesis of collagen and is a co-factor in the biosynthesis of catecholamines (brain energy chemicals), L-carnitine, cholesterol, amino acids, and some peptide hormones.[14]

FAQ

Frequently asked questions

What is the best way to take the Multi Food?

We recommend taking x2 capsules daily with breakfast.

What is the difference between Whole Food Vitamins and Synthetic Vitamins?

Whole foods offer the essential cofactors and the natural variations of vitamins needed to ensure the intended reaction takes place in the body. Such cofactors cannot be formed or made in a lab therefore our bodies are missing these key elements when we use synthetic vitamins.

Are the plant extracts “fortified” with synthetic vitamins?

No. The vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and cofactors are all naturally occurring within the plant extracts.

Why no iron?

There is a large proportion of the population with too much iron and those with iron deficiency should embark on a short-term plan to boost iron levels with specific iron treatment.

Combining Iron (and / or copper) with vitamin C makes vitamin C change from an antioxidant to a prooxidant as it reduces the metals to create compounds such as hydrogen peroxide that exert powerful prooxidant effects capable of damaging tissues and cellular structures.

Why no B12?

Vitamin C can cause vitamin B12 destruction, therefore, the two vitamins should not be combined in the same formulation or taken at the same time.

The Multifood product does not add B12 to the formulation for this reason; as well as the fact that B12 is made in the intestinal tract from bacteria feeding on plant material and Multifood is plant material.

The best plant source for B12 is algae but they also contain Iodine. Iodine has also been excluded.

Why no Iodine?

ATP Science T432plus contains iodine if you are looking for iodine supplementation.

Many people are allergic to iodine or have to avoid it for other reasons such as autoimmune disorders, certain thyroid diseases, drug interactions.

Those that need it will need a specific dose for a specific purpose. It is best to keep Multi Food intake consistent for all other nutrients and cofactors and use iodine as a specific therapeutic tool.

Can I use this with other products from the range?

Yes, you absolutely can, Multi-food compliments all products from our range

Is this Vegan?

Yes, this is vegan, and the capsules are made from vegetable matter (Hypromellose). You can also open the capsules and sprinkle in food or smoothies.

Is the Vitamin D Vegan?

Yes, this is sourced from yeast exposed to sunlight for absorption of Vitamin D and extracted in the form of vitamin D2.

What are Fat-Soluble Vitamins?

Fat-soluble quite simply means that these vitamins are transported with Fat and stored in the liver and Fat tissue or eliminated in Sebum, the oily fatty substance within our pores. Excessive intake of fat-soluble vitamins can become problematic based on their known storage sites in the body. This excess often occurs when high doses of the vitamin are singled out and dosed extremely high in a synthetic form.

What fat-soluble vitamins have been added?

Fat soluble Vitamins that have been added are A, D, and E.

What ingredients did we take out of the original Blend?

Lantana Magnesium and Wrighta Calcium.

Why did we take out the Magnesium and Calcium?

The dosage of Magnesium and Calcium was just barely enough in multi-food to aid in the utilization of the other ingredients but not enough to correct these specific deficiencies of magnesium or calcium. They also took up a lot of space in the capsule for such a small input. The requirements of the calcium and magnesium can alter depending on the requirements to correct a deficiency, so the dosage needs to be flexible, in which case its best to dose them individually for the individual. You can opt for ZMST for a great blend of Zinc, Magnesium, selenium, and Taurine.

Can I use this if I have the MTHFR Gene Polymorphism?

Yes, this is perfect for the individuals that cannot convert folic acid to the active form of 5-MTHF. Using natural folates instead of folic acid reduces the potential for masking hematological symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency. B12 is needed for MTHFR to function and interestingly B12 injections can also mask folate deficiency, so it is important to maintain natural balance when supplementing with folate and B12.

Is it just Fat-soluble Vitamins?

No, Multifood combines both Water-soluble vitamins and Fat-soluble vitamins in their RDI for adults to help assist in providing the micronutrients and essential cofactors for multiple processes. This includes the important critical cofactors required for 100% function of the Kreb cycle, necessary for life itself.

How long do I take this for?

This is designed as a daily top-up of vitamins, from food sourced ingredients so it can be an addition to your diet if you feel you lack in your diet or that your fruit and veg may not be as packed with goodness as they once were and just want to cover all bases.

Episode 70 – The Great Vitamin C Hoax

Matt outlines his research into vitamins and specifically Vitamin C. He has found that marketing and well established use of Vitamin C supplementation is not backed by science. It’s a tricky subject, but when laid out Matt’s research goes against everything he was ever taught in Naturopathy about supplementing with Vitamin C… and if you’re taking 250mg of Vitamin C or more a day, you might be damaging more than your wallet.
This episode also has an absolute cracker of a case study for a young man who crashed after having vaccine shots and Matt gives some tips on what to look out for.
