Why Multivitamins Are So Essential To Your Health Today – Invite Health Podcast, Episode 5
Invite Health Podcast, Hosted by Jerry Hickey. Ph
Published, high quality research consistently demonstrates that multiple vitamins (or multivitamins) power up the brain, improve focus and mental clarity, and support memory functions for all age groups. But not all multivitamins are created equal! Let’s jump right in!
We split our nutrients into water soluble and fatty soluble ingredients for better bioavailability and absorption. Fatty soluble ingredients can be damaged by exposure to oxygen. InVite employs L-Vcap® technology, or liquid-filled vegetarian capsules, to shield the delicate fatty soluble liquid ingredients such as Lycopene and Vitamin D from oxygen. The ingredients are encapsulated in an oxygen-free environment and the tight weave of these vegetable capsules further shields the ingredients form oxygen maintaining their freshness. The water soluble ingredients are supplied in properly disintegrating tablets coated with Annatto plant powder to protect them and keep them fresh. Each serving comes in convenient individual cellophane packs for easy transport.
Vision Benefits with Lutein and Zeaxanthin
This supplement is great for people who spend a lot of time on the computer and digital screens; the blue light emitted from these screens leads to eye and brain fatigue. This fatigue is largely due to a depletion of the nutrient Lutein from the eyes and brain caused by the blue wavelength light emitted from the screen. Invite’s Core Multiple supplies 6mg of natural Lutein; you’d have to consume over 3 cups of broccoli every day to match the Lutein content in each serving of our Core Multivitamin!
“Our Core Multiple is designed to improve your energy.
Our Core Multiple is designed to address the nutrients depleted by commonly prescribed drugs.
Our Core Multiple is designed to support eye health.
And designed to protect the heart and the entire cardiovascular system for healthy circulation.”

Combating Nutrient Depletions with Multivitamins
Most prescription drug users and even health professionals may not realize the extent to which important nutrients are depleted from your body by hundreds of commonly prescribed drugs. Statin drugs are a good example. These drugs prescribed to lower cholesterol unfortunately deplete Lutein, and as discussed, is needed for memory and vision.
By the year 2013, 222 million prescriptions a year were written for statin drugs and that’s just in the USA. Currently 73 million American’s fit the guidelines for using a statin. In addition to nutrients depleted by statins, drugs for diabetes or for high blood pressure, pain relieving drugs, antibiotics, antidepressants, diuretics, corticosteroids, and many other classes of drugs deplete important nutrients.
Lacking specific nutrients can contribute to your risk of developing diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, memory and vision loss, and many other serious conditions. The good news is that not only will this Core Multivitamin replete your nutrient levels to avoid dangerous nutrient deficiencies, it will actually supply optimal levels of these nutrients for peak mental performance and physical energy.

Active B-Complex Vitamins for Superior Energy
Folate is a B-complex Vitamin that when activated lowers the risk of damage to our DNA. Many individuals cannot convert the synthetic folic acid used in most multiple vitamins into the active form so our Core Multiple only uses the active version of folate. Some individuals may also have trouble activating the synthetic vitamin B12, known as Cyanocobalamin into its active Methylcobalamin form. InVite uses active Methylcobalamin because it is so important for the brain.
Let’s talk about energy for a moment; all of the B Complex Vitamins allow you to use food for energy. But CoQ10 is also necessary to help you with your energy, along with Magnesium to stabilize your energy; 90% of your energy is attached to the mineral magnesium in the form of Magnesium-ATP; if you lack Magnesium which many American’s do, it is hard to hold onto your energy. We also include plenty of chromium to help you use the sugar in food for energy.
Antioxidant Protection Provided By Multivitamins
Multivitamins in general support antioxidant activity and combat free radicals, which can kill our cells, slow us down, and contribute to the pitfalls of the aging process such as increased fatigue and poor health. The addition of powerful antioxidants such as Tocotrienol (a natural version of Vitamin E) and a number of carotenoids strongly contribute to the antioxidant protection offered by the Core Multivitamin. They also help shield you from the free radicals generated by air pollutants, the sprays in foods, and those related to viruses, yeasts, bacteria, drug metabolites, the suns radiation and any other source including the chemicals and heavy metals that are absorbed into our skin from deodorants, shampoos, cosmetics and other personal care products.
There is so much that goes into the making of a superior, high-quality multivitamin formula, like the Invite Health Core Multivitamin. Myself and my team of certified healthcare professionals here at Invite are dedicated to providing you on the best products on the market, along with the information and resources you need to make the best decisions about your specific health needs.
