Metabolism Essentials Multi

Metabolism Essentials Multi Plus

A Custom Vitamin, Mineral & Phytonutrient Formula Designed to Support Metabolism, Disease Prevention and Concerns of Aging

If you have received a personal nutrition plan at the Center for Nutrition, you are likely familiar with my Metabolism Essentials Multi Plus. Far more than a multivitamin, it is, in reality, the equivalent of a multivitamin + mineral tablet + B-complex + chromium + vitamin C + vitamin E + Vitamin K-1/K-2 + astaxanthin + lutein + L-carnitine + many others. You see, by providing all these helpful nutrients in a single supplement, benefits skyrocket with a simple, very affordable supplement.

Metabolism Essentials Multi Plus is a core recommendation for the vast majority of my patients. And with good reason, it was designed specifically to address the concerns that are common among adults in the U.S., a slowing metabolism, chronic diseases all around us, and aging bodies that we want to nourish and protect. If you share these concerns, read on…

Why do we need a nutrient supplement?

There has never been more research proving the power of nutrition to promote health. Proper vitamins, minerals, metabolism cofactors, and plant nutrients support a healthy energy level, mood, body weight, immune system, brain function, and vision. However, nutrient deficiencies can be devastating to healthy aging, increasing risks of cancer, heart disease, stroke, and memory loss with aging.

I have strict medical standards of excellence when recommending nutritional supplements. After all, most of us need special nutritional support for concerns related to metabolism, weight loss, mood disorders, medical problems, fatigue, memory loss, or general aging.

Although the foundation of healthy nutrition has to start with good food choices, numerous studies have documented the benefit of certain vitamins, minerals and other supplements to support health, strengthen the immune system and help prevent certain chronic nutrition-related diseases. With our busy lifestyles, eating nutrient rich foods is more and more difficult. Supplements can guarantee that our bodies are receiving the essential nutrients it requires for health.

As a nutrition-oriented physician, I have high standards when recommending nutritional supplements.

Here are questions I always have in mind:

  • Are optimal amounts of nutrients present?
  • Are key minerals present in clinically relevant amounts?
  • Are the minerals chelated for best possible absorption?
  • Are proper B vitamins present to lower homocysteine and potentially lower both heart disease risk and cancer risk?
  • Is natural “Folate” (not folic acid) used to limit cancer risks?
  • Are adequate nutrients present to avoid deficiencies even if I am dieting, under excessive stress, or exercising intensely?
  • Is the product of professional quality to assure purity, digestion, and absorption without contaminants or the use of detrimental “cheaper” forms of nutrients?
  • Are powerful plant nutrients included for added benefits?

Metabolism Essentials Multi Plus is the result of over 10 years of my personal research towards creating the best formula possible, including key nutrients that are not present in typical multivitamins. I believe the Metabolism Essentials Multi Plus is a great investment in your health, and I think you’ll agree. Many individuals have reported renewed energy and improved sense of well-being upon taking Metabolism Essentials regularly.

Dosage is 3 tablets twice daily for adults seeking optimal nutrient intake.
Not recommended for those with advanced kidney or liver disease.
