Vicatalyst

$40.00

Vicatalyst was formulated with quality in mind. This multivitamin contains bioavailable forms of vitamins, minerals, and health-promoting nutraceuticals to ensure that your body has access to the nutrients it needs.

Vicatalyst

It is crucial that the vitamins and minerals you ingest are bioavailable—meaning they can be absorbed and used by the body. Here’s a bit of an industry secret: Just because a percent RDA is listed on a nutrition label does not necessarily mean that you are receiving that percent RDA from the supplement.

A product label that claims to supply 100% of the RDA for a given vitamin or mineral may only provide a small fraction of that amount to the cells that need it if that vitamin or mineral is not in a form that your body can absorb and use. So if your body doesn’t absorb it, where does it go? It passes right through your GI tract and eventually ends up in the toilet. What a waste of your hard-earned money! Your body can only use the nutrients it absorbs.

Description

If you are like most people, you find it difficult to eat the way you know you should at every meal, every day. Do you ever find yourself too busy to buy, prepare, and eat recommended quantities of fresh fruits, vegetables, lean meats, nuts, and seeds? Or perhaps you take the time to eat healthy foods, but realize that you are missing key nutrients because you eat the same few fruits, vegetables, or meals over and over. If either of these scenarios apply to you, then a multivitamin may help you get the critical vitamins and minerals your body needs for optimal function and wellness.

Additional information
Bioavailability

It is crucial that the vitamins and minerals you ingest are bioavailable—meaning they can be absorbed and used by the body. Here’s a bit of an industry secret: Just because a percent RDA is listed on a nutrition label does not necessarily mean that you are receiving that percent RDA from the supplement.

A product label that claims to supply 100% of the RDA for a given vitamin or mineral may only provide a small fraction of that amount to the cells that need it if that vitamin or mineral is not in a form that your body can absorb and use. So if your body doesn’t absorb it, where does it go? It passes right through your GI tract and eventually ends up in the toilet. What a waste of your hard-earned money! Your body can only use the nutrients it absorbs.

Tablets vs. Capsules

People often ask, “Why can’t I just take one tablet per day?” We wish you could, but this just comes down to a matter of space. When a supplement includes high-potency vitamins and minerals in combination with whole foods ingredients, they take up a lot of space. For this reason, many high-potency vitamin and mineral supplements are offered in tablet form. Tablet technology allows for the compression of ingredients into smaller, more concentrated pills; this means you only need to take three Vicatalyst tablets per day to receive the same dose that would be provided by six to eight capsules.

If you are currently taking a vitamin in tablet form, be sure it is from a company that guarantees the tablets will break down for full absorption. Unfortunately, some manufacturers produce tablets that don’t dissolve well, resulting in poor nutrient absorption.

Active vs. Inactive B-Vitamins

B-vitamins receive a lot of attention, and have long been shown to play a major role in cardiovascular, neural, gastrointestinal, adrenal, sex hormone, and pulmonary health. More recently, research indicates that the form of folate used in most supplements may not actually be helping the people taking them.i

Studies indicate that as much as 40-50% of the population may have a gene mutation, called MTHFR, which decreases their ability to convert folic acid into the active form of folate (L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate).ii,iii,iv,v For those with this gene mutation, taking folic acid may not supply the body with the amount of active folate required to support brain and cardiovascular health.vi Vicatalyst contains the active form of folate, B6, and B12, so your body doesn’t have to convert them before they can be used.

Iodine: A Warning

Research indicates that iodine in any form can create cascading problems for the immune system in those with autoimmune thyroid disorder (called Hashimoto’s disease) or the genetic disposition for autoimmune thyroid disorder. For these with autoimmune concerns, the ingestion of any concentrated form of iodine can trigger destruction of thyroid gland tissue, resulting in additional inflammation.vii,viii,ix For this reason, Vicatalyst does not contain kelp or any other concentrated form of iodine.

Too much of a good thing?

Is it possible for a multivitamin to cause more harm than good? This varies from person to person, but the answer could sometimes be yes. Some manufacturers include very high levels of specific vitamins and minerals in their products, and these jumbo-dose supplements raise the concern of possible toxicity. While these products may be okay to use with certain populations under the active guidance of a physician, extremely high doses of vitamins or minerals could be harmful for those who don’t need them, who take them for prolonged periods of time, or who are taking multiple pharmaceuticals or supplements.x Vicatalyst has been carefully designed with long-term safety, nutrient balance, and proper nutrient absorption mind.

A Single Nutrient Delivery System

Vicatalyst doesn’t only contain vitamins and minerals; it also contains whole foods and herbs to aid in nutrient absorption and utilization. It provides enzymes to support digestion, trace minerals and methyl donors for added liver support, and probiotics with butyrate to support healthy intestinal flora. With all these nutrients and health-promoting essentials wrapped into one product, Vicatalyst just might eliminate your need for multiple nutrient support products.

Lifestyle Support

Vicatalyst was designed with a modern lifestyle in mind; it was designed for the busy, health-conscious person who strives to make good food and exercise decisions while juggling family, career, school, or time-consuming activities. Vicatalyst is a unique product with quality components designed to give you the nutritional support your body needs by complementing your healthy dietary choices. Think of this product as a small yet impactful element in your plan to take charge of your health.
