There are nutritional deficiencies, and then there are nutritional imbalances. Nutritional imbalances can result from an imbalanced diet, or from carelessly formulated multivitamins providing ineffective or harmful forms, doses and ratios. Balance and diversity, comprehensiveness and potency: these have always been the guiding principles behind Ortho•Core, principles that culminated in the development of a truly complete and superior multivitamin. Ortho•Core provides all of the recognized vitamins and minerals in their most effective forms and doses available, topped off with the most powerful anti-aging phytonutrients and antioxidants known.
A balanced and well-designed multivitamin is fundamental to any supplement regimen. Unfortunately, factors such as market trends, the unfortunate tendency toward “one-capsule-a-day” formulas, products that provide equal quantities of different nutrients (that the body requires in different amounts), inappropriate doses and attempts to achieve the longest list of ingredients possible result in multivitamins that may not end up benefiting the consumer’s health. The problem is that to achieve these results, quality is often sacrificed, using ingredients with poor bioavailability or lower quality forms of nutrients, or doses that are inadequate, excessive or imbalanced. Ortho•Core is designed to correct all these common formulation problems while providing some of the most biologically active antioxidants and powerful phytonutrients available.
Anyone looking for a superior multivitamin or a single supplement for overall health will find that Ortho•Core is simply the most advanced multivitamin available even if the full serving of 6 caps is not consumed daily.
