Allie Might, FMC, INHC, ATT: [00:00:41] Welcome to the InViteⓇ Health Podcast where today we will discuss multivitamins. I’m Allie Might, Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and Functional Medicine Coach here to help you navigate which multivitamin is right for you. When it comes to multivitamins there’s so many options to choose from and here it InViteⓇ Health is no difference. So how do we choose? † [00:01:03]
[00:01:04] Let’s start with the children’s multi. Our kids multi is a packet with two great flavored chewable tablets. These have the essential vitamins and minerals necessary for children ages 4 to 12. This multiple will start your kids off on the right track for a healthy life. So what does a good multi to graduate to next. The daily multivitamin with grape seed extract is a basic multi that contains the absolute most essential ingredients, including B vitamins, vitamin C, and calcium. We’ve also added 25 milligrams of grape seed extract, which is a super antioxidant to help protect our cells. This is a multivitamin that I typically recommend to teens as it’s not a kids multi but not as complex as a typical multi for adults. This is also nice because all you need to take is one tablet a day. I’ve realized that a common question regarding multivitamins is this, do you have a liquid multi? While we don’t have a liquid multi, we offer a great option from Dr. Pressman called multi energy powder. This is a complete multivitamin and an easy to use powder. Adding one scoop to a glass of water is a perfect option for those of us that may not like to swallow pills. † [00:02:24]
[00:02:25] And finally, our bread and butter of our extensive multivitamin options. These include the core, the men’s, the women’s and the performance and are the main go too when adding a multi. These all come in easy to take packets, so we’ve already taken the guesswork out of what to take each day. Let’s start with the core multi, which is also the base for the men’s, women’s, and performance. This multi is a comprehensive formula to includes essential vitamins such as vitamin C, vitamin D, and a methylated B 50 complex, minerals such as zinc, calcium, magnesium, and potassium, and antioxidants like vitamins A and E. Each daily packet contains two tablets and a capsule and is a good option for adults looking to add a multivitamin into their daily health routine. † [00:03:20]
[00:03:21] Next is our men’s multi, we added some important ingredients to our core formula to help support the needs of men. The additional herbs address such issues as heart health, the prostate and libido. Each packet contains two tablets and three capsules and is a great option for men ages 40 and over. We also created a multi with the needs of women in mind using the core multi as the base. The additional formula helps to address inflammation as well as support connective tissues and healthy breast tissues. A small amount of iron is also part of this formula, making it an ideal choice for any woman still experiencing menses. This multi also contains two tablets and three capsules per packet. While InViteⓇ doesn’t make a prenatal multivitamin. No conversation about women’s multi’s would be complete without discussing prenatal. A prenatal is important for both the mother as well as the developing fetus. All pregnant women and women actively trying to conceive should be on a prenatal multivitamin. Speak to your obgyn or a qualified health professional for recommendations. † [00:04:30]
[00:04:32] Last but not least, is the performance multi. This was designed to help increase energy and to protect ourselves from oxidative stress in damage. This is great for any adult who needs extra daily energy or those who lead an active lifestyle. Each packet contains two tablets and two capsules.

The thyroid works with the adrenal glands lets look deeper into what the adrenal glands are and how they work.†
What Are The Adrenal Glands?
In a nutshell they are small glands on top of the kidneys that produce hormones. They look rather like little hats that live on top of the kidneys. These glands produce 3 types of hormones. They produce mineralocorticoids for example aldosterone which can control blood pressure, glucocorticoids predominately cortisol which is the hormone in charge of our flight or fight response, and adrenal androgen such as DHEA and testosterone. What does all this mean? Well to sum it up the adrenal glands are in charge of our blood pressure, sodium balance in the body, water balance in the body as well as the body’s response to stress or illness. Now stress can mean anything from work stress to a long term illness. If any of your bodies systems are not working up to par the body sees that as stress and the adrenals will react by making cortisol. The adrenals are also in charge of regulating metabolism for example weight as well as fat metabolism and glucose regulation. The adrenals are also very important when it comes to sleep regulation. In fact, when the adrenals are signaled to produce more cortisol (which given it is the main hormone associated with stress it is the main hormone I will talk about) the symptoms include fatigue with a difficulty staying asleep. This can lead to feelings of anxiety as well as weight gain and higher than normal blood pressure.† (1)
Thyroid Health Relationship to Adrenal Glands
Well the thyroid as we know it is connected to almost every system in the body. One of the problems of having too much cortisol produced by the adrenals is that they affect the thyroid itself. Stress hormones for example cortisol, cause the conversion of T3 from T4 to be reduced hence increasing the likelihood of hypothyroid symptoms! (2) This may be one reason when we see clients with what is called adrenal fatigue we often are also working with them to address hypothyroid symptoms. Interestingly, in cases of long term thyroid dysfunction there is also adrenal dysfunction. Now you might say “I know I just read that” but what I mean is that the adrenals can affect the thyroid but the thyroid can affect the adrenals long term. How is that possible? Because the adrenals will often try and compensate for the reduced thyroid hormones. To produce energy they will produce cortisol. However, in the long run this can cause adrenal fatigue. What exactly is adrenal fatigue? In the normal process your body will produce cortisol in the morning to wake you up, a small amount in the afternoon to keep you going and none at night so you can sleep. When you are under stress the adrenals are constantly forced to produce cortisol. This leads to the adrenals becoming unregulated or fatigued. One such issue is that they produce cortisol at night rather than in the morning. They also tend to produce either too much cortisol or not enough. Symptoms of adrenal fatigue can include trouble with sleeping/fatigue, headaches, and digestive issues, changes in weight, and anxiety, brain fog, depression and even joint pain. (3) Please see the included picture for a complete system by system breakdown of the symptoms of adrenal fatigue.† (4)
Beneficial Supplements For Adrenal Fatigue
Since so many people with hypothyroid also suffer from adrenal fatigue I really wanted to include a brief discussion of it here since it is important to support the adrenals when working with the thyroid.†
The following supplements have been found to be helpful in working with adrenal fatigue:†
Adrenal glandular are very important in working with adrenal fatigue.†
See InviteⓇ Health Supplement Dr. Pressman Adrenoserine†
Ashwagandha root has been found in studies to not only regulate the thyroid but it also helps to act as an adaptogen to regulate cortisol. In fact studies show lower cortisol levels using this herb.†(5)
See InviteⓇ Health Supplements Dr. Pressman Adrenoserine and Thyroid HxⓇ †
Rhodiola has been found to help moderate the cortisol levels when they are high due to stress. This can help with the stress response.† (6)
See InviteⓇ Health Supplements Rhodiola and our Performance multivitamin†
Licorice root helps to maintain cortisol in the morning so that energy is available when needed. One of the things that often happens in adrenal fatigue is that while there is too much cortisol at night there is too little in the morning. Licorice helps to normalize this.† (7)
See InviteⓇ Health Supplements Dr. Pressman Adrenoserine, DGL Licorice, and MinACID Hx® †
See InviteⓇ Health Supplements Methyl-B for an activated complex of B vitamins that go straight to work †
Methylated B vitamins are very good for people with adrenal fatigue since they don’t have to be activated.† (8)
See InviteⓇ Health Supplements B-Complex 50, B-Complex 100 and any of our Men’s Multivitamin, Women’s Multivitamin, Core Multivitamin, and Performance Multivitamin †
Phosphatidylserine is one of the best things to help with cortisol that is waking you up in the middle of the night. After a few weeks most people say their sleep starts to improve. Studies show Phosphatidylserine normalizes cortisol especially when taken at night.† (9)
