If you are eating a well-balanced diet with a wide variety of foods and not in an energy deficit then you don't HAVE to take a multi-vitamin, no, but how many of us are able to do that every single day? A multivitamin is like an insurance policy, plugging any holes that may be present in your nutrition on a day to day basis, meaning you’ll avoid any negatives associated with insufficiency. Anecdotally customers who use Awesome Defence regularly report healthier hair, skin, and nails, better sleep, fewer colds, and an overall feeling of greater day to day energy and wellbeing. It also helps ensure key known defeciencies aren't an issue for you, such as vitamin D, Iron, B12, magnesium and calcium, which can be more common on plant based diets, or diets with certain restriction, and is often seen in highly active people.
Awesome Defence would cover all of your micronutrient needs (alongside a healthy diet of course). This would ideally be combined with Awesome Omega in order to cover all of your health bases, as Omega 3 is a common fat deficient in many peoples diets. So together they would be a powerful health duo.
As you can see from the nutritional information there are a lot of micronutrients at the research recommended optimal dose in these capsules. Many companies say "one a day", but this is impossible if you want all the listed micronutrients in the optimal doses. We built this product 100% in alignment with the research, hence our 4 capsule serving size. This is especially important for active people that are often deficient in key nutrients, like magnesium, vitamin D and B vitamins. Taking less will still be beneficial, of course, but the full dose is what we suggest. This can be broken up in to 2 in the morning and 2 in the evening if you prefer. People of low body weight and thus in need of less overall calories could choose to take less also.
The capsules are roughly 11mm long with a diameter of roughly 5mm, the size of a standard paracetamol capsule.
It is recommended you take these with a meal to help absorption.
Please see the label for contraindications. We do not recommend this for use if you are pregnant, under the age of 12 (see below), or using certain medications. Please discuss with your doctor if you are not sure, but outside of these groups there is no reason to assume issues would occur.
We would not recommend that anyone under the age of 12 takes Awesome Defence due to the high fat-soluble vitamin and mineral content. Between ages 12-17 a half dose would be appropriate, so 2 capsules.
We recommend that you consult your midwife or pregnancy health professional.
Yes 100%, when supplementing with magnesium for example, not taking oxide or stearate is key, magnesium citrate is absorbed far better, so it is a little more money, but you are absorbing more of it - this is why we use it. Similarly, calcium carbonate is a well absorbed form and so while it may be a little more money than cheaper versions, your body is actually able to make use of what you’re using! Every micronutrient in Awesome Defence is from the most bioavailable form according to the existing body of research, because we're focused on quality and optimal health.
Awesome Defence provides a scientifically informed dose of all key micronutrients for human health, in readily absorbed forms, in research recommended doses. All ingredients are either supplied at 100% of the RNI, a higher dose because data suggest that is more beneficial, or a reduced dose to avoid toxicity where this could be a risk. Most brands either under-dose or use poorly absorbed forms, hence many companies will appear cheaper. We don't want cheap, we want the best, so we choose to use the best ingredients as indicated by the available research.
Cheaper multivitamins are certainly better than taking nothing at all, especially as multi-vitamins can be a good health insurance policy, but most are low dosed – especially when it comes to key nutrients like vitamin D. This, or they miss key nutrients altogether, while what is included can often be in a poorly absorbed form, like magnesium stearate. This is one area where you really do get what you pay for.
We put everything you need in a multi-vitamin in Awesome Defence, dosed according to the research for optimal health, recovery and performance, and ensuring the right carrier agents are used for maximal absorption. We don’t settle for ‘good enough!’
Each pouch is a 30-day supply assuming you take a full dose of 4 capsules.
Awesome Defence does not contain Omega 3 fatty acids, so if you want to benefit from omega 3 supplementation, we would recommend combining it with Awesome Omega. Save money by getting our Awesome health stack.
