"Nine out of 10 Americans are missing key micronutrients. We see low vitamin levels in just about every patient we test. This deficiency is due to a variety of factors, including mass food production, preservatives to extend shelf life and poor food choices. Regardless of these elements, the bottom line is that most people aren't consuming enough nutrient-rich foods to meet all their basic vitamin and mineral needs.
We created this product to supplement these deficiencies. This pharmaceutical-grade multivitamin blend includes activated vitamins which work synergistically to support foundational wellness, including calcium and magnesium, zinc and copper, vitamins C and E, bioactive folate, vitamin B12, B vitamin complex and beta-carotene."

An important aspect of good nutrition is Micronutrition (vitamins and minerals). Micronutrients play a role in converting food to energy; building and repairing tissues and DNA; manufacturing neurotransmitters, hormones and other modulators in the body; breaking down and detoxifying xenobiotics and medications; and maintaining growth, reproduction and health. According to research by the USDA and other organizations, the American diet is lacking micronutrients. What's more, while the recommended intakes (e.g. %DV, DRIs, EARs, RDAs) are designed to meet the minimum needs of some healthy individuals; they are not designed to meet the requirements of all individuals, especially the chronically ill.
No. 1 Hypoallergenic Multivitamin and Mineral offers multiple benefits, including:
Bioavailability The micronutrients are provided in bioavailable forms so that they can be better absorbed and utilized. Nº1 contains a full complement of Albion® patented mineral chelates and complexes. Albion is a recognized world leader in mineral amino acid chelate nutrition and manufactures highly bioavailable nutritional mineral forms that are validated by third-party research and clinical studies. Not only do these formulas contain natural vitamin E, which has been proven to be up to 100% more bioavailable than synthetic dl-alpha-tocopherol, but it is also provides mixed tocopherols to more closely approximate how one might consume vitamin E in healthful foods.[9,10] Folate is provided as 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF)—the most bioactive form of folate. Nº1 feature 5-MTHF as Quatrefolic®, which is proven to have greater stability, solubility, and bioavailability over calcium salt forms of 5-MTHF. Vitamin B12 is provided as MecobalActive™. This patented form of methylcobalamin has very high purity; no harmful solvents are used in its production. Vitamins B2 and B6 are also provided in activated forms.
Energy Production Nº1 provide generous levels of B vitamins, which serve as prime coenzymes in glycolysis and oxidative phosphorylation and as cofactors in amino acid and lipid metabolism. The balanced presence of B vitamins is essential to their cooperative functioning and excellent for those with stressful lifestyles.
Antioxidant Protection Vitamins E and C, selenium, zinc, beta carotene, and trace elements provide broad-spectrum antioxidant activity. Their combined presence supports their ability to regenerate each other and maintain consistent levels of antioxidant activity both intra- and extracellularly.
