Primal Multi

In all my years of practice, I have never found a Multi-Vitamin that I could recommend.  Generally, they failed for one or more reasons; quality issues, poor selection of ingredients chosen or not enough nutrient cofactors.
I am very pleased to say now I finally have that product and it’s called Primal Multi™. Primal Multi is a first-of-its-kind multivitamin, mineral and phytonutrient blend specifically formulated to mimic the nutrient intakes found in an optimal evolutionary human diet. The ingredients in Primal Multi™ have been sourced to be naturally occurring or bioidentical. In addition to key vitamins and minerals, this formula contains select phytonutrients that are known to have beneficial effects for health (such as lutein, lycopene, resveratrol, wild blueberry, broccoli seed/sprout, citrus bioflavonoids and more), which were likely consumed in greater quantities in the evolutionary past than they are in the modern diet.
The majority of commercially available multivitamin and mineral formulas are designed to meet 100% of the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) or Adequate Intake (AI), or some percentage thereof. However, these values represent the minimum intake required to reduce risk for overt debilitation and deficiency diseases; they were not intended to support optimal health, nor to address common genetic variations in nutrient absorption.
Ideally, most nutrients are obtained from a diet of whole, unprocessed foods. However, even under the best circumstances of a healthy diet, modern agricultural practices may result in foods having lower concentrations of certain nutrients than their wild counterparts, or than these foods had in the distant past. Additionally, the relentless pace of modern life, the ubiquity of compromised metabolic health, and the environmental toxins we’re exposed to means that most people need higher amounts of various nutrients than we did in the past. Primal Multi™ was formulated taking these issues into account.
B Vitamins: Provided in their natural and/or activated forms for superior bioavailability.

Mineral chelates: Calcium, magnesium, zinc, copper, manganese, molybdenum, chromium and boron are provided in chelated forms. Chelation is the bonding of minerals to amino acids, which results in molecules that are more easily absorbed and assimilated by the body.
Vitamin K: Provided in both the K1 and K2 forms, which are both essential but have different biological roles.
Vitamin E: Provided as tocotrienols from annatto extract. Tocotrienols have higher antioxidant activity and unique benefits not observed with tocopherols, the form of vitamin E in most commercially available supplements.
Concentrated phytonutrients: Primal Multi™ shines with these unique ingredients not typically found in multivitamin/mineral blends—lutein, lycopene, wild blueberry complex, citrus bioflavonoids and more. These phytochemicals are concentrated in highly nutritious foods and have biological activity that may help support overall health and wellness.
Who is Primal Multi for?
Some of my patients are on very comprehensive protocols and definitely do not need a multi at all as they already are well covered. Primal Multi alone, does not cover all Key nutrients, as that would take too many pills and different kinds of pills, i.e. there are no critical Omega 3’s in Primal Multi and insufficient calcium for most people. However, for individuals on lesser nutritional programs they will benefit greatly from such a High Quality, Comprehensive Formula. Certainly anyone who is not on any supplements at all, this would be a perfect choice if they were only going to take one product. Although I would always argue that everyone should also be on one of our Omega 3’s, as there is not one product that will save more lives and more brains. 
Additionally, for some people if we add Primal Multi to your program we may need to reduce some other products you are on to avoid redundancy.
Great for kids! For kids who can swallow capsules, they can take these amounts of Primal Multi.
Ages 5 – 7, 1 capsule per day
Ages 7-10, 2 capsules per day
Ages 10-13, 3 capsules per day
Over 13 they could take the full adult dosage of 4 per day, depending on their size.
Primal Multi should be taken with some food.
If you are wondering if we should add Primal Multi to your program, just email me or ask my staff to leave me a note asking me if Primal Multi is right for you.
