Twice Daily Multi™ contains optimal amounts of many nutrients not easily obtained in most diets. It uses higher quality ingredients than most multivitamins, including vitamin E as high gamma mixed-tocopherols, our proprietary NatureFolate™ blend of active isomer naturally-occurring folates, and true amino acid chelate minerals for optimal tolerance and absorption. These exceptional ingredients are combined in an up-to- date, science-based formulation to create a truly superior multi.

Twice Daily Multi™
A multi-vitamin/mineral for the maintenance of good health
According to Health Canada, most Canadians are not achieving their required daily amounts of vitamins and minerals. Designs for
Health’s two a day multivitamin was designed to provide eective dosages of nutrients that are dicult to obtain in the typical daily diet,
such as 158 mg of mixed tocopherols, 200 mcg of selenium, 400 mcg of chromium, 500 mg vitamin C and 400 mcg folates. Calcium and
magnesium were purposely left out since they should be taken separately at therapeutic doses.
Twice Daily Multi utilizes the most eciently absorbed mineral forms available: true Albion chelates. ese minerals are sourced from
our raw materials supplier Albion Advanced Nutrition with the best mineral technology in the industry.
Twice Daily Multi Unique Features:
• Rich in immune enhancing antioxidant nutrients vitamins C, E, and lipoic acid.
• High in B-6, folates and B-12, all of which help lower serum homocysteine. Elevated homocysteine is increasingly recognized as a risk factor for heart disease and birth defects.
• High in chromium, a trace mineral essential for healthy sugar and fat metabolism. Most diets contain less than 60% of the minimum suggested intake of chromium. Insufficient intakes of chromium lead to signs and symptoms of diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Supplemental chromium given to those with impaired glucose tolerance or diabetes leads to improved
blood glucose, insulin, and lipid variables. Chromium also improves lean body mass.
• Contains NatureFolate™, our blend of active, naturally-occuring folates.
• Balanced in iodine and selenium content. Both trace minerals must be present in the correct proportion in order to support the health of the thyroid. Imbalanced intake of iodine and selenium should be avoided as this may impair thyroid function.
• Rich in boron, which is essential for bone health and optimal mental energy.
• Contains sufficient biotin for healthy fat and blood sugar metabolism, and healthy nails.
• Rich in zinc, needed for immune function, protein synthesis, and appetite control.
• Free of calcium and magnesium, which require dosing according to individual needs.For minerals to properly form coordinate covalent bonds with amino acids, they must be mixed in liquid solution. These bonds cannot form in a dry environment or in powdered form. True chelates need to be small enough in molecular weight to be absorbed by the body, are absorbed better than mineral salts and are better retained in body tissue. Additionally, chelated minerals are better tolerated than non-bound mineral salts. Since they are better tolerated and absorbed, chelates are less likely to cause loose stools or other gastrointestinal discomfort.
These ligands are important as the chelated compound will remain chelated throughout the
gut and into the bloodstream. Mineral salts from non-true chelates often break apart in the stomach, leaving the body with ionized mineral and extra compound to deal with. Ionic minerals can interfere with the absorption of other minerals such as iron and zinc whereas chelated
minerals do not.
Albion minerals are mainly chelated with glycine due to its low molecular weight. Glycine helps to slow the degeneration of muscle tissue by aiding the synthesis of creatine. Glycine is involved in energy production, formation of amino acids for the immune system, CNS function, and
prostate health.
