Do you believe nature knows best? Well at ATP Science we do. We believe that vitamins and minerals from organic, natural sources that are found as a vitamin complex with all of their different natural forms along with their synergistic cofactors are more easily absorbed and are used in the body more effectively than single nutrients. In an ideal world, we shouldn’t need to supplement our food with anything. Unfortunately, with modern farming practices, processing, and storage techniques of our foods in combination with the daily stresses of our modern life and our reliance on processed and packaged foods, we can’t avoid supplementing our diets.
It is not well known by most Australians that most ‘natural’ vitamin supplements are synthesized in a lab from genetically modified bacteria. At ATP Science, we believe in natural sources for our supplements. We have searched the globe looking for farmers and scientists who have perfected the art of farming, processing and storage techniques to make food that is standardized to contain vitamins and minerals, naturally.
MULTI FOOD provides your body with a natural balance of nutrients. Not just the vitamins and minerals; but also the included phytonutrients, polyphenols and other plant-based nutrients that are missing in your standard multivitamin.
Did you know that Nutrient deficiencies are one of the more common causes of resistance to effective treatments? Vitamin and mineral deficiencies create roadblocks in certain biochemical pathways and if deficient it can be impossible to force the body to change. Vitamin and mineral cofactors, found in MULTI FOOD are necessary for all the systems in the body to work. Production, activity, conversion, and detoxification of the following all require the vitamin and mineral cofactors. They include:
- Energy production cycle in every cell of the body – the Kreb cycle
- The proper function and production of hormones
- The production of neurotransmitters
- A properly functioning immune system.
- Digestive and systemic enzymes
- Folate deficiency = inability to detoxify estrogen and contributes to obesity.
- Zinc deficiency = inability to control 5 alpha reductase and can’t fix testosterone: DHT ratios in acne.
- B5 deficiency = inability to control nervous systems and adrenal exhaustion.
- Vitamin c deficiency = scurvy = inability to regenerate collagen
- Magnesium deficiency = inability to switch off.
- Kreb cycle defect = no active transport pumps to absorb nutrients from the gut, systemic fatigue, excessive metabolic waste.
The first place to start to make sure someone is capable of creating change is by making sure the base nutrients are supplied.
3 x Multi Food caps daily supplies the essential water-soluble vitamins that need to be topped up on a daily basis along with all of the trace elements and botanical cofactors necessary for them to work.

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.
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.
In this weeks episode of the ATP Project Matt and Jeff discuss why some people don’t get the results they deserve. Co-factors, vitamins and minerals (all the micro nutrients) are critical when creating chemical reactions for change. Heaps of FAQs with everything from Gyno to Bikini comp prep.
Scurvy has long been associated amongst sailors as a predictable illness that developed after a month…
Receiving sufficient amounts of vitamins and minerals is essential for optimal health and preventing chronic disease…
Best Vitamin I've Used
Started taking this vitamin after listening to the ATP podcast and not looking back. Great vitamin so far. Only slight drawback is the price but so far it's worth it
Hi Adam, thank-you for your review and feedback. That is great you are enjoying MultiFood. Thanks. - ATP Team
Helped me with sickness
Had a nasty cold, instead of being out for a week it cleared in two days. Believe the multifood and the resilience, with an increased dose of two of each a day contributed to less time sick.
I swear by this product now for a number of reasons!
I have always had average skin, and have been on birth control for a while. After listening to the podcast on contraception, I stopped immediately. I was absolutely shocked at the side effects from all forms of birth control. I was nervous about going off it as I felt like my skin was going to go really bad, and after taking Multifood, it has been the complete opposite!! I still get the odd little breakout, but it is not nearly as bad. This is definitely a staple in my daily life.
Hi Zoe, Thank you so much for this amazing feedback! So great to hear its helped your skin! - ATP Team
Worlds Best Vitamin
This product is fantastic - thanks guys! Upon listening to your podcasts and learning about synthetic vitamins (that I have been taking for over 30 years as a vegetarian) and then reading the ingredients on the back and learning that I have probably been wasting my money for a very long time - especially some that I was giving my son (first ingredient sugar!!, second ingredient glucose!!!!) I now take only Multifood everyday and feel amazing! I also give my 13yr old son a half dose and I threw away all the other synthetic vitamins. I love the fact that it is made from organic whole foods and we reap those benefits. The ethos of your company is so needed in this world we live in. So so happy that I have found you.
Everyone should try Multifood!
This is my absolute favourite multi vitamin. I love that is real vitamins from real food. Taking MultiFood in the morning gives me that little lift for the day and makes me feel better all round. If you want a natural pick me up you HAVE to try MultiFood - it really works!
