Balanced Multi (Formerly Formula Three) x 180 Capsules
- Vegetarian product
The revised Balanced Multi contains more of the highly bioavailable co-enzyme forms of several B-vitamins, such as riboflavin-5-phosphate and methylcobalamin.
The amounts of several key components have been increased, such as folic acid (800 mcg), B12 (250 mcg), vitamin D3 (400 iu), boron (3 mg) and selenium (200 mcg). Vitamin K (100 mcg) and copper (2 mg) have been added.
Chromium has been upgraded to the more bioavailable Chromate form (chromium polynicotinate) and citrate has been added as one of the carriers for magnesium. We have removed PABA, a common allergen, as well as choline which has a somewhat fishy odour, and which recent research suggests is best absorbed as phosphatidyl choline rather than as the potentially toxic free choline.
Balanced Multi contains a 50:50 ratio of the Group I and Group II versions of certain nutrients (e.g. vitamin B-3 as niacin and niacinamide, vitamin C as ascorbic acid and calcium ascorbate, vitamin A as palmitate and beta carotene) as well as balanced Group I and II mineral carriers (e.g. aspartate and citrate).
As with all PMN supplements (except Neptune Krill Oil), Balanced Multi is encapsulated in vegetarian capsules. Suggested dose is six capsules daily, in divided doses taken with meals; more or less may be taken as desired.
Directions for use
As a dietary supplement, take 6 capsules daily in divided doses, with meals or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
