Blackmores Sustained Release Multi is specifically formulated to provide many of the nutrients your body requires over a sustained 8 hour period.
Features and benefits:
* The release of key vitamins and minerals over a prolonged period ensures nutrients are available when your body needs them. This is particularly important for vitamin C and the B vitamins which are water soluble and not stored in the body in large amounts.
* The nutrients in this sustained release formula are embedded within a cellulose gum matrix. This swells and breaks down during the digestive process, causing gradual diffusion and release of nutrients over an eight hour period.
* Convenient one a day dosage
How it works
Daily supplementation with a broad range of vitamins and minerals can provide 'nutritional insurance' by helping to provide an optimum intake for the maintenance of good health. A Harvard review published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 2002 recommended that all adults should take a multivitamin daily. Statistics suggest that many people are not consuming optimal amounts of vitamins in their diets. Low levels of vitamins can contribute to the development of a range of conditions.
A National Health survey conducted by the Australian Bureau of Statistics in 2004-2005 showed that over one third of the Australian population does not eat enough fruit and 60% don't eat enough vegetables on a daily basis. In addition recent studies have shown that the nutrient levels in fruits, vegetables and some food crops have declined in the past 50 years. This may be primarily due to the way food is grown, processed and prepared.
Adults - Take 1 tablet a day with meal, or as professionally prescribed. Not suitable for children under 15 years.
