Daily vitamin packs seem to be the hottest trend in nutrition, popping up in TV commercials, your social media feed, the pharmacy aisle… It’s no surprise considering at least 53% of adults in the U.S. think daily vitamins, minerals and supplements are necessary to improve health.
While having all your supplements pre-sorted into daily doses is super convenient, do daily vitamin packs actually deliver the benefits they claim? One must wonder — do I really need all these pills?
Ask any medical expert and they’ll say that proper nutrition begins with a healthy diet. In a perfect world, we would all be getting the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and omegas we need from a balanced daily intake of leafy greens, phytonutrient-rich fruits and veggies, nuts, legumes and lean proteins. But in the real world, you might have a stash of potato chips, cookies and other processed foods tucked away in your pantry or simply be too busy to plan healthy meals every day, meaning that getting sufficient nutrients from food is an ongoing challenge.
Even self-proclaimed “healthy eaters” are at risk. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, only 1 in 10 people eat enough fruits and vegetables. In other words, up to 90% are likely missing essential nutrients. While supplements aren’t a replacement for food, they can help if you’re not getting your recommended daily intake of nutrients from your diet.
WHICH DAILY VITAMINS DO YOU NEED MOST?
The most common vitamin and mineral deficiencies among adults are B-complex vitamins, vitamin D, iron, magnesium and zinc. To truly know if you’re deficient in a vitamin or mineral requires bloodwork or labs from your doctor. But even if results show your levels are within normal ranges, this doesn’t necessarily mean they are optimal, so you may still benefit from daily supplements.
Why does optimal nutrition matter, if you’re already eating healthy or supplementing daily? Simply put, if you ever notice a lack of energy or focus, or experience occasional anxiety, digestive issues, trouble sleeping or fatigue on a regular basis, your body could be telling you it’s not getting the nutrients it needs to support major body systems. Ignored, these occasional disruptions can develop into severe deficiencies that may need to be addressed on a clinical level. That’s why daily supplementation with the right nutrition regimen is so important to provide the support you need to feel your best.
Bottom line: Listen to your body.
WHY DAILY VITAMIN PACKS CAN BE MORE EFFECTIVE
With so many brands and options all marketed as the best thing since sliced bread, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed trying to pick and choose supplements in the pharmacy aisles. In fact, this may be why so many consumers choose a multivitamin over other formulas. The promise of multiple benefits in one pill seems the least complicated option. But choosing a daily vitamin pack can yield significantly better results.
A single pill can only be so potent, so the greater the number of ingredients that are packed into a single formula, the smaller the amounts of each ingredient it will conceivably contain, and therefore the less likely that an “all-in-one” multivitamin will contain effective dosages.
A daily vitamin pack may require you to take more pills per serving, but you’ll also experience more benefits because each pill can offer greater potency.
WHY DAILY VITAMIN PACKS CAN BE SAFER
There’s another good reason why you shouldn’t DIY your daily vitamin routine: Opting to mix and match supplements that aren’t formulated to work synergistically may do more harm than good.
When you try to customize your own supplement routine, getting enough nutrients isn’t the only challenge. It’s also possible to overdo it on certain vitamins and minerals. In fact, a DIY approach could put you at risk of duplicating ingredients at unsafe levels. This is a particular concern with fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K, although even water-soluble vitamins — like vitamin C — can cause gastrointestinal issues at too high a dose.
What’s more, too much of some nutrients can cancel out the benefits of others. For example, too much sodium can deplete calcium levels, leading to issues with bone health. Too much phosphorous will cancel out the benefits of magnesium, essential for muscle health, and too much vitamin C depletes levels of trace mineral copper. On the flip side, you need vitamin C for efficient absorption of iron, and vitamin D for efficient absorption of calcium. You need omega 3 to efficiently absorb fat-soluble vitamins.
In a pre-formulated daily vitamin pack, each supplement should work synergistically with the others and contain the necessary ingredients to enhance your nutrient uptake without cancelling out any of the benefits…
Unfortunately, just because supplements come together in a pack isn’t a guarantee that they deliver the benefits they claim. So, how do you know you’re getting what you pay for? Look for a daily vitamin pack that’s biologically integrated.
THE BENEFITS OF BIOLOGICALLY INTEGRATED SUPPLEMENTS
A biologically integrated vitamin pack is not only formulated to work together synergistically, but it also contains research-recommended doses of the nutrients on the label. This means you’re more likely to experience the results you’re looking for because the supplements contain the clinically researched dosages scientifically shown to deliver the benefits they claim. You would think all daily vitamin packs do this, while the reality is most don’t.
Beyond dosage, biologically integrated supplements are sourced from ingredients that are highly bioefficient, meaning the body can efficiently utilize their nutrients. These ingredients are often paired with co-factors for optimal absorption, helping to support bioavailability. If you’ve ever taken an iron supplement that turned your stomach sour or B vitamins that still left you feeling sluggish, odds are you weren’t taking a bioefficient version that your body could readily use.
Finally, biologically integrated supplements tend to address multiple body systems rather than targeting just one or two specific functions. This lays the foundation for optimal health and powers the body to work efficiently, absorbing more nutrients from the healthy foods you eat, balancing the ebb and flow of the endocrine system, optimizing bone health, promoting a robust immune system, protecting brain and cognitive function, and more.*
MODERE AXIS OPTIPACK™: BIOCEUTICAL NUTRITION FOR OPTIMAL HEALTH™
Daily supplementation is a delicate dance, so it’s best not to play nutritionist. Instead, reach for a biologically integrated daily vitamin pack and take the guesswork out of nutrition.
“When we set out to create Axis OptiPack, we wanted to address what other daily supplement packs don’t. It had to be more than your average vitamin regimen. It had to work synergistically… What makes Axis OptiPack so unique is that it delivers bioceutical nutrition for optimal health.” —Alan Jones, M.S. in Human Nutrition
Axis OptiPack is biologically integrated to deliver research-recommended amounts of 30 crucial nutrients alongside necessary cofactors for optimal uptake. It contains 4 highly potent, bioavailable formulas: Multivitamin, Antioxidant/Adaptogen, Vitality Complex and Omega Complete.
These 4 supplements provide optimal support for these major body systems:
Specifically, Axis OptiPack targets heart, brain and cognitive health, oxidative and occasional stress, energy, vitality, immune function, antioxidant capacity, gut and digestive health, liver health, thyroid function, bone health, eye and skin health, and promotes efficient nutrient absorption.*
Hear expert nutritional biochemist Alan Jones discuss how each formula in Axis OptiPack works to optimize daily nutrition critical to wellness:*
Multivitamins first became available in the United States around 1940, and today they are the most widely used supplement — an estimated one-third of the population takes a daily multivitamin. This number increases for older demographics. But for all their popularity, not all multivitamin formulas deliver the benefits they claim.
Axis OptiPack’s Multivitamin sets a new bar, delivering research-recommended amounts of key vitamins and minerals essential to daily wellness. It supports heart, brain and cognitive health, immune health and supports the thyroid, while optimizing energy and overall vitality.*
Not only does Multivitamin deliver 22 vitamins and minerals, but it also utilizes highly bioavailable forms of the nutrients it provides, like folate from L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate, zinc and copper glycinate, and iron in the form or ferrous citrate, at dosages that deliver noticeable results.
Diets insufficient in plant-based phytonutrients are likely lacking in antioxidants and adaptogens. Without these nutrients, you may experience increased oxidative stress and occasional stress, affecting everything from skin and immune health to brain and cognitive health. Yet most people don’t take an antioxidant or adaptogen supplement.
If you currently take a vitamin pack and aren’t experiencing the results you’re looking for, Axis OptiPack with synergistically formulated Antioxidant/Adaptogen may be what your body is missing.
This unique formula features Red Orange Complex® with 3 types of Sicilian blood oranges, clinically shown to reduce oxidative stress and support younger looking skin in complexions that showed signs of sun aging. It also contains antioxidant vitamin C and citrus bioflavonoids to support immune health. Meanwhile, highly studied adaptogens ashwagandha, schisandra and American ginseng help reduce occasional stress.*
Some people are reluctant to switch to a daily vitamin pack because they’re concerned that taking several pills at once may cause digestive upset. This concern may push someone to look for a single-pill solution that likely doesn’t contain the nutrients they need. With Axis OptiPack, you get the supplements you need without the worry.
Axis OptiPack’s Vitality Complex contains 5 digestive enzymes, plus bromelain and papaya fruit, that are specifically formulated into OptiPack to help support comfortable digestion. In fact, among a 4-week trial, no participants reported digestive upset after taking a dose of OptiPack. But the benefits of Vitality Complex go beyond digestive health.*
Formulated with highly bioavailable vitamin D3, K2 and calcium fructoborate, Vitality Complex supports bone health, cellular health and supports healthy glucose levels already within normal range, thanks to potent herbs cassia cinnamon and holy basil.*
Many people supplement with omega-3 for its cardiovascular benefits and to help support healthy looking skin. But did you know omega-3 also plays a key role in efficient nutrient uptake of fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K?
Axis OptiPack’s Omega Complete contains 100% sustainably sourced, Antarctic Superba2™ Krill oil — a bioefficient, single source of essential EPA, DHA, astaxanthin, choline and phospholipids. It supports heart, brain and cognitive health, liver health and healthy eyes and skin.*
Formulated with patented Flexitech™ technology, Omega Complete doesn’t have a fishy odor or aftertaste. Unlike some omegas, which require you to take huge pills for sufficient intake, Omega Complete contains the research-recommended dose of Omega-3 in just 2 small soft gels a day.
TAKE WELLNESS TO THE NEXT LEVEL
While a healthy diet sufficient in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, adaptogens and omegas is a goal we should all strive to achieve, Axis OptiPack helps fill nutritional gaps and provide optimal support for most adults. If you’re feeling less than your best, your body could be asking you for a daily vitamin boost.*
With 4 highly potent, highly bioavailable supplements biologically integrated in one convenient daily pack, Axis OptiPack is not only an easy way to achieve optimal nutrition, but also cost-effective. In fact, for about $3/day you can provide your body with research-recommended amounts of the key nutrients it needs to optimally support major body systems including brain and cognitive health — and deliver noticeable results.*
Axis OptiPack puts optimal health in your control. Powerful on its own, when paired with Axis TreBiotic and Axis Phytos, Axis OptiPack creates a comprehensive nutrition foundation to support wellness like you’ve never experienced before.*
