Do You Need To Take A Multi-Vitamin?

Do You Need To Take A Multi-Vitamin?

Let's just get right to the point, shall we?

The bottom line is, if you are eating a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables every single day, you may be getting what you need, nutritionally.

HOWEVER, because the majority of us live a typical busy lifestyle, we often miss the mark in our nutrition.

Here at Red H, we are of the opinion, that unless you have the test results to prove it, you're missing something in your diet.

And what's even cooler,  a good multivitamin contains other supplements known to improve health and performance that are difficult or basically impossible to get in adequate amounts through diet alone.

So, before you think the multi-vitamin doesn't have a place on your shelf, think again!

WHAT CAN THE MULTI-VITAMIN DO FOR YOU?

Your body needs a wide spectrum of vitamins and minerals to carry out the millions of cellular processes it performs everyday. 

Here are a few of the amazing things adding a multi-vitamin to your diet can do for you:  

• Help improve physical performance of both resistance and endurance training.  

• Improve overall physical health including heart health, blood flow and pressure, cholesterol profile, insulin sensitivity.  

• Improve mental health including memory, cognition, and overall sense of well-being.  

• Alleviate the physical stress caused by regular, intense exercise, including aches, inflammation, and fatigue.  

• Alleviate mental stress that leads to anxiety, depression, and various impairments of physical health.  

• Enhance your immune function to help prevent disease and dysfunction & increasing longevity of health.

WHICH MULTI-VITAMIN SHOULD YOU TAKE?

Okay, this is where the confusion starts. There are probably a million and one options for you to choose from.

But, because we believe we do things better here at Red H, we developed our own multi-vitamin, FACTOR-10 MULTI™.

We've created a multi-vitamin to provide full spectrum wellness so you can always Be Ready™. 🎯

FACTOR 10 MULTI™ will help you realize greatness by plugging nutritional "gaps" by boosting your resistance to stress, sickness & overtraining.

WHAT'S IN THE FACTOR-10™ MULTI?

VITAMIN A

Vitamin A consists of a group of four compounds—retinol, retinal, retinoic acid, and several carotenoids—and it’s important for maintaining good vision, immune and reproductive health, and normal function of the heart, lungs, kidneys, and other organs.

FACTOR 10 MULTI™ CONTAINS 3,000MCG OF VITAMIN A PER SERVING.


VITAMIN C

Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps maintain healthy tissues, teeth, and gums; promotes wound healing; and boosts the immune system.

FACTOR 10 MULTI™ CONTAINS 50MG OF VITAMIN C PER SERVING.


VITAMIN D3

Vitamin D is a vitamin vital for immune and nervous system function and bone density.  

As you may know, our body can’t produce vitamin D without sun exposure. When our skin is exposed to the sun’s UVB rays, they interact with a form of cholesterol in the body to produce vitamin D. The more skin that is exposed to the sun, and the stronger its rays, the more vitamin D you produce.  

According to even the most modest estimates--research published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2011-- 8% of Americans are vitamin D deficient, and 25% are considered “at risk” of a deficiency.

FACTOR 10 MULTI™ CONTAINS 63MCG OF VITAMIN D3 PER SERVING.


VITAMIN E

Vitamin E is an antioxidant that prevents cellular damage and helps keep free radicals under control. It works in a cyclical relationship with vitamin C and some other antioxidants, such as carotenoids and alpha-lipoic acid, to reduce oxidative stress within a cell.  

Vitamin E has traditionally been supplemented in abnormally high dosages, in part because it was the prototypical “antioxidant” alongside vitamin C. Despite a recommended intake of only 15 mg (around 22 IU), a low dosage is considered to be 200 IU, and 400 to 1,000 IU is commonly used.  

These higher dosages have no benefits that are unique to vitamin E (with regard to alpha-tocopherol) and only serve to reduce levels of gamma-tocopherol and gamma-tocotrienol in the body, two forms of vitamin E that do have unique protective properties.

Thus, in a way, superloading alpha-tocopherol can be adverse, and we have included other ingredients in FACTOR 10 MULTI™ to compensate for the lost antioxidant properties of vitamin E superloading. 

This is in line with some epidemiological studies noting increased rates of harm and mortality (in the metabolically unwell) with dosages above 400 IU.

That said, a lot of people still do not get much vitamin E via the diet due to low intakes of eggs and nuts, and thus supplementation is worthwhile. A mild increase above the RDA is beneficial, but more than 400 IU / day is overkill.

FACTOR 10 MULTI™ CONTAINS 30MG OF VITAMIN E PER SERVING.


BIOTIN (VITAMIN B7)

Also known as Vitamin B7, and like its other B vitamin brethren, biotin plays an important role in the growth of cells and the metabolism of food.

FACTOR 10 MULTI™ CONTAINS 2500MCG OF BIOTIN PER SERVING.


IODINE

Iodine is a trace mineral that the body needs to create thyroid hormones, which control the body’s metabolism, temperature, muscle function, and overall growth and development.  

The most common source of iodine is table salt, and when you exclude salt from the diet, the only sources of iodine left become seaweed or animal products that retain iodine they have eaten.  

Omission of animal products and table salt from the diet without the intentional consumption of seaweed, sometimes seen in athletes who have been advised to limit their sodium intake, is a common cause of iodine deficiencies.

FACTOR 10 MULTI™ CONTAINS 225MCG OF IODINE PER SERVING.


ZINC

Zinc is a trace element used in the creation of enzymes, proteins, and cells. It’s also used to release vitamin A from the liver, and it boosts the immune system.  

Zinc is known to be required in higher levels by athletes due to excessive sweating, as many dietary minerals are lost through perspiration. Also, preventing a zinc deficiency will avoid the reductions in testosterone and immunity that are sometimes seen during intense exercise.

We dosed our zinc in accordance with the dietary supplement formulation known as ZMA, a popular supplement among athletes. To summarize, this dosage confers all the benefits of zinc that daily supplementation can accomplish, while avoiding a dose that could have long term complications.

FACTOR 10 MULTI™ CONTAINS 20MG ZINC PER SERVING.


SELENIUM

Selenium is a trace mineral involved in maintaining reproductive health, metabolizing thyroid hormones, synthesizing DNA, and protecting the body from free radical damage and infection. 

Brazilinuts are a very well-known, high source of Selenium.

FACTOR 10 MULTI™ CONTAINS 200MCG OF SELEIUM PER SERVING.


MARINE COLLAGEN

Collagen is the main component of your body’s connective tissues, which means it serves as the primary building block for various things in it, including your skin, teeth, cartilage, bones, and tendons.

In the body, marine collagen works the same way as bovine collagen, by providing amino acids essential to building strong, healthy connective tissue.  

Unlike bovine collagen, however, marine collagen is almost exclusively type 1 collagen, and the peptide molecules are smaller in size, making them slightly more bioavailable and absorbable.  

Marine collagen is also especially rich in the amino acid hydroxyproline, which is an essential component of skin, blood vessel walls, and other connective tissues. 

FACTOR 10 MULTI™ CONTAINS 150MG OF MARINE COLLAGEN PER SERVING.


ASHWAGANDHA

Ashwagandha root extract is a substance derived from a plant used in Ayurvedic medicine as an herb.  

Research shows that supplementation with ashwagandha root extract . . .  

  • Reduces both chronic cortisol levels and acute cortisol increases due to stress 
  • Lowers feelings of stress and anxiety
  • Helps restore lost fertility in men
  • Improves immune system function
  • Increases cardiovascular endurance
  • Protects against pigments that accumulate during Alzheimer’s disease and is thought to have a therapeutic effect in those with the disease

Clinically effective dosages of ashwagandha root extract range from 50 to 500 mg normally, with a few instances of over 5,000 mg being used acutely.

FACTOR 10 MULTI™ CONTAINS 150MG OF ASHWAGANDHA PER SERVING.

L-CYSTEINE

L-cysteine is a form of the amino acid cysteine, and it has been used in conventional medicine for more than 30 years primarily as a mucolytic (mucus thinner) and a way to increase levels of the important antioxidant glutathione molecules that can improve circulation.  

Research shows that supplementation with N-acetyl L-cysteine . . .  

  • Can prevent fatty liver from oxidative stressors such as alcohol overconsumption
  • Has a protective effect on the liver
  • Reduces the decline in physical performance seen with repeated strenuous training 
  • Limits the accumulation of toxic minerals in the body and reduces the damage done by these mineral

 

FACTOR 10 MULTI™ CONTAINS 30MG OF L-CYSTEINE PER SERVING.


HORSETAIL

Horsetail is one of the oldest medicinal herbs that even precedes dinosaurs on earth. It’s been used to heal ulcers, stop bleeding, treat kidney problems, and fight infections since ancient Greek and Roman times. Horsetail is also a popular source of silica for strengthening bones, hair, and nails.

FACTOR 10 MULTI™ CONTAINS 30MG HORSETAIL HERB POWDER PER SERVING.


L-LYSINE

L-Lysine benefits the gut and brain. It is an essential amino acid. Many people know that several amino acids are known as the “building blocks of protein” and are needed in order for a huge number of proper internal functions, including growth.  

Of the few hundred amino acids found in nature, 20 are necessary for protein creation and growth, and only 10 of those 20 can be produced by the body. The remaining 10 are known as “essential” amino acids because humans must consume them for proper health. Amino acid deficiencies cause a degradation of internal cells and can lead to huge problems, so it’s important to get enough of them in your diet.  

Essential amino acids are most often stereoisomers, meaning they exist in two variations that are identical to one another as mirror images. There are both D- and L- forms of these amino acids, and the L- form is used in protein synthesis and therefore the form found in food and supplements. Because of this, most people simply refer to this nutrient as “lysine” for short.  

There are many incredible L-lysine benefits, from its use as a common treatment for cold sores to a potential anti-anxiety supplement. As is true with most nutrients available in supplement form, L-lysine can be taken orally but is absorbed best into the body when consumed through food. It’s found in large amounts in various kinds of meat, beans, cheeses and eggs.  

Specifically, L-lysine is very important in the creation of carnitine, which converts fatty acids into energy and also lowers cholesterol levels. L-lysine also seems to play a role in absorbing calcium and helps the body form collagen, which aids in the growth and maintenance of bones and connective tissue (including skin).

FACTOR 10 MULTI™ CONTAINS 30MG OF L-LYSINE PER SERVING.


L-METHIONINE

The human body uses L methionine to make creatine, another type of amino acid. Additionally, L methionine contains sulfur, which is used by the body for healthy growth and metabolism, and it’s responsible for a compound known as s-adenosylmethionine or “SAMe,” which supports the the proper function of the immune system; neurotransmitters like dopamine, serotonin and melatonin; and cell membranes.

As for athletes, supplementation is important due to its role in improving bone volume, mineralization and density. This is great news for high impact athletes and their joints.

FACTOR 10 MULTI™ CONTAINS 30MG L-METHIONINE PER SERVING.


ORGANIC KELP POWDER

Kelp is an extremely potent source of Iodine, which promotes a healthy thyroid and hormonal homeostasis in the body.

FACTOR 10 MULTI™ CONTAINS 20MG KELP POWDER PER SERVING.


PURE TRANS-RESVERATROL

Resveratrol occurs naturally in such plants and plant products as dark chocolate, tea leaves, certain berries, grapes, peanuts and Japaneses knotweed, which is then purified to various purities, anywhere from 5 percent to 99 percent pure.

Pure trans resveratrol may cost more, but it contains effective dosages of the active ingredient, unlike many competitors – 5 to 10 percent pure – which are essentially useless.  

Pure trans resveratrol has numerous health benefits These include protection against heart-attacks and strokes, anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties, , macular degeneration and cataracts, and cancer-fighting properties.  

It also reduces the instances or severity of the following:  

  • Liver disease
  • Joint disease
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Lyme disease
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Atherosclerosis

 

FACTOR 10 MULTI™ CONTAINS 20MG TRANS-RESVERATROL PER SERVING.


KERATIN

The skin is the largest organ a human has. It's a great idea to treat it right! 

Supplementing with keratin will help strengthen your skin, hair, nails and cartilage and prevent damage from wear & tear.

To fortify your body’s natural production of keratin protein, make sure you’re supplying it with the building blocks, including amino acids, vitamins and minerals. It’s true—beauty comes from within, which is why you’ll want to consume these nutrients through a balanced, natural diet and fill nutritional gaps with supplements.

FACTOR 10 MULTI™ CONTAINS 20MG KERATIN PER SERVING.


TURMERIC

What can’t Turmeric help you accomplish? Just to name a few things, here are some of the powerful benefits of adding Turmeric into your diet:  

  • Natural anti-inflammatory  
  • Increases body’s ability to produce antioxidants, preventing free radical tissue and cellular damage.  
  • Boosts brain function and cognitive health  
  • Helps with depression  
  • Proven powerful for sufferers of severe arthritis  
  • Assists in calming GI disorders and stress Of the 10,000+ studies referencing turmeric, the most interesting finding is that when it’s compared to conventional medicine, turmeric benefits equal that of many pharmaceutical medications.

In fact, a number of studies have even reported that using curcumin is more advantageous than certain prescription drugs!

FACTOR 10 MULTI™ CONTAINS 20MG TURMERIC PER SERVING.


BLACK PEPPER EXTRACT

Black pepper extract is essential to help increase the bioavailability or "useability" of many supplements. It is often a necessary supplement to ensure that formulations are effective.

FACTOR 10 MULTI™ CONTAINS 5MG OF BLACK PEPPER EXTRACT PER SERVING.


CAPSICUM POWDER 

The phytochemical constituents of capsicum are shown to produce an anti-inflammatory response that alleviates peripheral nerve pain. For athletes, and people on the go, supplementing with Capsicum could provide a host of anti-inflammatory benefits! 

FACTOR 10 MULTI™ CONTAINS 5MG CAPSICUM POWDER PER SERVING.


HYALURONIC ACID

Hyaluronic Acid is one of the most renowned anti-aging supplements available. 

Our body naturally produces this acid, which not only keeps our skin hydrated and youthful, but also lubricates our eyes and joints. As we age, the body’s natural hydration and naturally produced hyaluronic breaks down, which is what ultimately leads to wrinkles, saggy skin and dry joints.

The less moisturized the skin is, the more it tends to sag and lose its structure. HA is unique in that it holds an impressive amount of moisture, therefore it can easily and effectively provide hydration, helping the skin remain supple and glowing AND keep joints lubricated.

One of the most impressive things of note about HA is that it hydrates without over hydrating — when the skin becomes too moisturized, it no longer retains all of the key substances it requires.

FACTOR 10 MULTI™ CONTAINS 3MG HYALURONIC ACID PER SERVING.
