Platinum Easy Multi One-A-Day 60 softgels
What is EasyMulti?
Platinum Naturals' EasyMulti is a scientifically advanced formula that combines a proprietary blend of multivitamins and minerals with high quality Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids (EFAs). Formulated by renowned health experts, Dr. Zoltan Rona and David Khang, CHN, EasyMulti is designed to be better absorbed, and easier on the stomach, than conventional multivitamin tablets.
Why do I need to take a multivitamin/mineral?
Multivitamins and minerals are more important today than ever before. Declining nutrient values in fruits and vegetables, combined with increased exposure to pollutions and stressors, have seriously diminished the quantity of nutrients in our diet. In fact, the Journal of American Medicine Assocation now recommends that all adults take vitamin supplements1.
Why do I need EFAs?
Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) are good fats that are required for just about every function in the body. There are two primary types of EFAs: Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. Like vitamins and minerals, EFAs cannot be synthesized by the body and must be obtained from dietary sources.
How do EFAs improve stability?
When chopped garlic is exposed to air it quickly loses its potency. But, when it is stored in oil it stays fresh and potent. This is because the oil acts as a barrier to oxygen and moisture - two substances that cause vitamins to break down. Liquid vitamins suspended in water are not stable and quickly lose their efficacy. Vitamins C and B Complex are particularly vulnerable to oxidization. Platinum Naturals Omega Suspension Technology encases vitamins and minerals in oil, protecting them from oxygen and moisture damage to ensure maximum stability
Will EasyMulti upset my stomach?
No. Unlike some multivitamins, which cause stomach discomfort or distress, EasyMulti is easy to digest. That means no bad repeats, stomach cramps or discomfort. Guaranteed.
What makes EasyMulti different from other multivitamins?
EasyMulti is specially formulated using Omega Suspension Technology, a proprietary process developed by Platinum Naturals that fully suspends vitamins and minerals in healthy omega oils. In addition to their health benefits, these oils play an important role in nutrient absorption and stability.
How do EFAs improve absorption?
Omega oils can cross the cell membrane more easily than a powder. Studies have shown that when sunscreen and insect repellent are applied within half and hour of each other, the chemicals in the repellent are absorbed into the skin. This is because oils in the sunscreen act as a carrier, transporting molecules across the cell membrane. Omega oils work in a similar way within the body. They facilitate the transport of vitamins from the intestine into the blood stream.
The First Multivitamin with Omega 3 & 6 Oils
Easiest Multi to Swallow
Easymulti comes in a soft gelatin capsule that is easier to swallow than large hard tablets. Easymulti soft gelatin capsule is large, but its special tapered design allows for easy passage to the stomach. Most importantly, the soft gelatin capsule naturally has very little friction.
No Bad Taste or Odour
Vitamins in a tablet form have a bad taste and odour, which can be unpleasant. The softgel capsule covers the odour and bad taste, making it much easier for people to take their vitamins.
Easy to Digest
Soft gelatin capsules are broken down very quickly in your stomach. A hard tablet requires considerable work for the stomach to break down. For some individuals the hard tablet is never completely digested.
Easymulti fat soluble vitamins (A, D and E) are in the their natural oil state, and hence they are better absorbed by the body. Tablets and hard capsules must use powders, and hence fat-soluble vitamins must be altered to powders.
SOFTGELS VERSUS TABLETS
Most manufacturers use tablets because they are less expensive to produce and they can compress more of the active ingredients into each tablet. Platinum Naturals uses only softgel technology, which is known to improve compliance, bioavailability and absorption.
EASY TO SWALLOW
Unlike tablets, which are chalky and can become lodged in the throat, softgel capsules are smooth and easy to swallow. In fact, many doctors recommend softgel capsules in order to improve patient compliance. To further ease swallowing, health experts recommend that you lean forward slightly, allowing the capsule to float to the back of your throat prior to ingesting.
When it comes to tablets you may be getting more than you bargained for. Tablets can contain artificial binders, fillers and lubricants that are used to hold the tablet together. The average tablet contains 7 different excipients! None of which have any nutritional value. Platinum Naturals' softgel capsules, on the other hand, are made with a gelatin shell and require no excipients whatsoever. So you get only pure, natural nutrients.
To create a tablet, ingredients are compressed together using a high-speed tablet press. This process produces a significant amount of heat, which can destroy some of the active ingredients. Softgel capsules do not require high temperature during manufacturing, so the ingredients are never damaged.
Multivitamins taken in pill or tablet form are not fully absorbed by the body. In actuality, you could be getting less than 65% of the label amount due to inadequate absorption. In most cases the culprits are the binding and coating agents that are used to form the tablet. These compounds are difficult for the body to break apart and absorb, and can lead to stomach discomfort and distress. Liquid vitamins and minerals tend to be more bioavailable, meaning they are easier for the body to process and absorb.
