Women’s Multi general information
What is Women’s Multi used for?
Women’s Multi high strength tablets are a comprehensive nutritional supplement formulated to support health and wellbeing in women with busy active lifestyles. A balanced diet is important for providing all the essential nutrients for a healthy functioning body. However, busy lifestyles often make it difficult to meet the recommended intake of important micronutrients by diet alone. Women’s Multi is a high potency multivitamin/mineral formula that promotes healthy energy levels and reproductive care, helps reduce stress and improves emotional wellbeing.
How does Women’s Multi work?
Women’s Multi tablets contains a range of vitamins and minerals that are micronutrients, which by definition, are nutrients needed in only small amounts but are critical to ensure normal metabolism, growth and physical and mental wellbeing. Micronutrients are not made by the body and are only obtained from the diet, and a deficiency can result in serious health problems. Based on controlled studies, it has been demonstrated that vitamin/mineral supplementation may contribute to improving health, reducing risk of some chronic diseases and help fill any gaps in nutrition due to poor diet, reducing risk of micronutrient deficiency1, 2. Studies have also demonstrated that vitamins and minerals are important for normal brain function including energy metabolism and modulation of cerebral blood supply3.
Women’s Multi tablets contain a range of B vitamins, which comprise a series of eight vitamins that play an important role in cell metabolism, which in basic terms is the conversion of organic materials, like carbohydrates, into energy (catabolic reactions). They are also involved anabolic reactions which include synthesis and repair of DNA and RNA and the synthesis of neurotransmitters and other cell signalling molecules. They are also important in processes that contribute to maintaining healthy skin and muscle tone, a healthy immune and nervous system, and producing enough red blood cells, which if deficient results in anaemia. Folic acid (vitamin B9) is particularly important for reproductive care during pregnancy to promote normal development of the nervous system and to prevent neural tube defects that can occur as a result of folate deficiency. Folate levels have been also found to correlate with mood and cognitive performance4. Nicotinamide in Women’s Multi, also known as niacinamide or nicotinic acid amide, is the water-soluble, active form of vitamin B3, a precursor of essential coenzymes for numerous reactions in the body and is used to treat various skin conditions including acne and dermatitis5, 6.
Women’s Multi tablets contain calcium pantothenate, which is a form of vitamin B5 also known as pantothenic acid. It is precursor of coenzyme A and is required for various metabolic functions, including metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, and lipids.
Free radicles are produced in cells as a result of oxidation both due to normal metabolic processes and due to environmental pollutants like ozone and cigarette smoke. Unless there is a balance between antioxidants and free radicles then cell damage can result. Women’s Multi contains vitamins C and E, betacarotene and the minerals selenium and zinc which are all powerful antioxidants.
Betacarotene found in Women’s Multi tablets is member of the plant flavonoid group of nutrients, which are known for their contribution to the vibrant colour of food and for their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory health benefits7. Betacarotene is the orange pigment found in many fruits and vegetables and is also a precursor for Vitamin A (retinol) being converted into vitamin A in the intestines. Vitamin A plays a vital role in vision, and deficiency can cause blindness. It is also important for growth and development, and maintaining a healthy immune system.
Hesperidin in Women’s Multi tablets is a phytoflavonoid glycoside (containing a sugar group) commonly found in citrus fruits, particularly oranges, and is metabolised to produce the aglycoside (without the sugar group) hesperitin. Both hesperidin and hesperitin are thought to have several biological properties including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial8, 9, 10.
d-a-Tocopheryl Acid Succinate is a natural source of vitamin E, which is another powerful antioxidant and is also involved in key metabolic processes including regulating enzymes like protein kinase that is plays a role in smooth muscle growth and lipid metabolism.
Essential micronutrients include minerals. Magnesium is a mineral needed as a catalyst for many enzyme systems involved in biochemical reactions throughout the body and is retained by most cells of the body with 50% found in bone. It helps maintain normal function of muscles, nerves and the immune system; helps regulate blood sugar levels and blood pressure, keeps bones strong and is involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis. Zinc is another mineral that is essential for many aspects of cell metabolism and is particularly important for wound healing, normal brain function and male prostate gland function. Selenium and Zinc are also antioxidants. A deficiency in essential vitamins and minerals can contribute to a variety of problems and illnesses.
Calcium balance in the body is strictly regulated and the bones and teeth act as reservoirs for calcium, which is essential for building and maintaining bone strength. Calcium is also important in nerve transmission and muscle contraction. Cholecalciferol (or Vitamin D3) is a natural prohormone of calcitriol (1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3), which is the active metabolite of vitamin D3. Calcitriol is converted from Vitamin D3 in the kidneys into a hormone that regulates calcium metabolism by controlling absorption of calcium and phosphate by the intestine and their secretion by the kidneys and it also regulates bone remodelling (bone formation and resorption) and bone mineralisation. If there is a lack of Vitamin D3 then calcium levels may become low and this contributes to brittle bones and to osteoporosis.
This comprehensive range of vitamins and minerals in Women’s Multi tablets supports the nervous system, healthy energy levels, emotional health, bone health and reproductive care. Antioxidant protection also provides support for optimal cardiovascular and immune system health.
