A high-potency multiple vitamin and mineral formula is an absolute must for people with insulin resistance. Supplying additional key nutrients has been shown to improve blood sugar control as well as to help prevent or reduce the development of major complications of blood glucose imbalances. Taking a multiple vitamin and mineral supplement has also been shown to boost immune function and reduce infections. Specific examples of nutrients needs for those living with insulin resistance are more chromium, vitamin C, vitamin E, certain B vitamins, magnesium, zinc and manganese. Supplementation with many of these nutrients leads to significant improvements not only in blood sugar control, but also in preventing complications. WellBetX Complete Diabetic Multivitamin & Mineral Formula also contains extra health enhancing herbs, antioxidants and bee pollen. It is an ideal multi for any weight loss program or diet and contains all the daily vitamins and minerals in the best balance for blood sugar maintenance and control.

It is preferred that non-diabetic children take a multivitamin and mineral product specifically designed for their needs. Although WellBetX Complete Diabetic Multivitamins and Mineral Formula is likely very safe at 1/4 to 1/2 the adult dosage, we prefer that parents of children with diabetes should always check with the child's health care practitioner before self-medicating.
Pregnancy and Nursing:
Although the multi vitamins and mineral combinations are quite safe if label directions are followed, it is preferred that pregnant women take a prenatal vitamin that is especially designed for them and the optimal development of their baby. The unique needs of pregnancy may not be addressed by a multi vitamin designed for the general population. There may be too much of one nutrient or too little. Women who have diabetes and are pregnant or lactating should work closely with their health care practitioner during this time.
Seniors: No special precautions known.
