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.

We all want to optimize our overall health, let’s do that by learning about the five most recommended supplements to take on a daily basis.
High levels of triglycerides can be extremely detrimental to your well-being, but the good news is that there are nutrients that can help.
restless legs syndrome
InViteⓇ Health Podcast, Episode hosted by Jerry Hickey, Ph.
Restless legs syndrome is described as this vague set of symptoms that people struggle to define. People with this issue get this uncontrollable need to move their legs at night, as well as vague unpleasant sensations, that can affect their night of sleep. This creates a problem because the next day, they are less productive at work. It affects them socially because they don’t have the energy to go out. It affects them healthwise because they don’t have the energy to exercise. So what do you do?†
The symptoms of restless legs syndrome
The chief symptom of restless legs syndrome is the need to move your legs. The weird sensations typically begin after you’ve been lying down or sitting for an extended period of time. You get rid of the sensation by moving, stretching or jiggling your legs.The symptoms generally occur at night. They can also be accompanied by aching, itching, throbbing or pins and needles.†
It’s estimated that up to 7 to 10% of the US population has restless legs syndrome. Women frequently have it more often than men. It can begin at any age, but the symptoms typically become more common, frequent and long-lasting as you grow older.†
There are different causes and risk factors for restless legs syndrome. For instance, there is a genetic component to this issue. You can inherit it from your parents. Sometimes, it is related to drinking alcohol, smoking cigarettes or consuming too much caffeine. Diabetes can also put you at risk because it causes inflammation.†
How to help with this issue
One thing you can do if you have restless legs syndrome is have your doctor do an iron profile. Iron is involved with dopamine. These two nutrients are important for a part of the brain that is involved with muscle health. If you have a problem with iron, this can affect your muscles. Iron supplements can really help with this issue.†
Alcar with ALA can also be beneficial. Both of these nutrients are naturally found in your brain, muscles and heart. Alcar and ALA can both help with nerve issues, so if a nerve problem is one of the factors leading to restless legs syndrome, try the Alcar with ALA.†
Folate is another nutrient that can help. All of our multivitamin formulations contain the active form of folate. When you have low folate levels, you are more likely to develop restless legs syndrome.†
The minerals magnesium and potassium are other things that can help. They’re involved with nerve excitability within the brain and the peripheral nervous system. This is the part of the nervous system that affects your muscles directly. Magnesium and potassium help to support the excitability of your neurons, as well as your blood flow. If you’re low in these minerals, you can begin to develop muscle cramps or restless legs syndrome.†
In this episode, Jerry Hickey, Ph. discusses the phenomenon of restless legs syndrome. He explains various factors that may contribute to this issue and also offers recommendations for nutrients that can help.†
