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.

New Study: Air Pollution Speeds Up Aging of Lungs & Increases COPD Risk

New Study: Air Pollution Speeds Up Aging of Lungs & Increases COPD Risk

We live in an increasingly polluted environment, loaded with toxins; the soil we grow our food in is often nutrient-depleted and many consume processed, factory-made foods supplying scant nutrients. A new study from the European Lung Foundation has found that exposure to outdoor air pollution is linked to decreased lung function and an increased risk of developing chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in the UK.

What is COPD?

COPD is a long-term condition linked to reduced lung function that causes inflammation in the lungs and a narrowing of the airways, making breathing difficult. According to the Global Burden of Disease (GBD) project, COPD is the third leading cause of death worldwide, with numbers expected to increase over the next ten years.

Though lung function naturally declines with age, new research suggests that air pollution may contribute to the aging process and adds to the evidence that breathing in polluted air harms the lungs.

The Study

Researchers from the Environmental Health and Sustainability at the University of Leicester, UK, used a validated air pollution model to estimate the levels of pollution that people were exposed to at their homes when they enrolled in the UK Biobank study, with data from over 300,000 people. The type of pollutants investigated were produced by burning fossil fuels from car and other vehicle exhausts, power plants and industrial emissions.

Participants answered detailed health questionnaires and had their lung function measured by medical professionals between 2006 and 2010. The research team then conducted multiple tests to see how long-term exposure to higher levels of the different air pollutants was linked to changes to the participants lung function. Further analysis also looked at whether working in occupations that increase the risk of developing COPD impacted disease prevalence.

The Results are In!

The data showed that for each annual average increase of five micrograms per cubic meter of PM2.5 in the air that participants were exposed to at home, the associated reduction in lung function was similar to the effects of two years of aging.

When researchers assessed COPD prevalence, they found that among participants living in areas with concentrations above World Health Organization annual average guidelines (10 μg/m3), COPD prevalence was four times higher than among people who were exposed to passive smoking at home, and prevalence was half that of people who have never been a smoker.

Professor Tobias Welte from Hannover University, Germany, is President of the European Respiratory Society and was not involved in the study. He said: “The findings of this large study reinforce that exposure to polluted air seriously harms human health by reducing life expectancy and making people more prone to developing chronic lung disease.

So, What Next?

Because our air is polluted, the soil we grow our food in is often nutrient-depleted, and many consume processed, factory-made foods supplying scant nutrients, our bodies wind up requiring even more vitamins and minerals to effectively metabolize nutrient-depleted foods. Add that depletion with less time spent outdoors, minimal exercise, prescription drugs and medications, and chronic stress, and the result is that many individuals are truly nutritionally deficient.

According to Archana Gogna, MS, CNS, MBA, healthcare professionals are advising their patients to start taking a safe, reliably-made, high-quality multivitamin mineral formula on a daily basis to fill the nutritional deficits in their diet. She explains, “A superior multivitamin is designed around a core of energy-producing nutrients along with powerfully protective food-derived antioxidants. A high-quality, non-GMO multivitamin is designed to address the replenishment of core nutrients depleted by commonly prescribed drugs, to support physical activity, and to support the increased need for particular nutrients during the aging process.”
