Made With Plant Based Vitamins – Instead of Chemically Synthesized Replacements
When vitamins were first discovered, they were isolated from food. Scientists did this so they could study the individual vitamins and minerals - not so they could take them as supplements.
During World War II, the need for nutrition of soldiers overtook the need for remaining true to nature, giving rise to cheap synthetic vitamins. Unfortunately, after the war ended, the food and supplement industry stuck with lab made synthetic vitamins instead of reverting back to food sources. Till this day, most vitamin supplements are made with synthetic vitamins.
Doing this ignores what scientists have known for a long time - vitamins and minerals are most effective in their natural plant form, surrounded by their co-factors and co-nutrients.
Until recently, finding a cost effective food based multi vitamin was near impossible. If you look closely at most whole food multivitamins, they aren’t made from food at all - they’re either the same old synthetic vitamins combined with plant extracts, or they are fermented in a lab.
With TrueMulti™, you’re getting vitamins that come from actual plants, fruits and other botanicals grown in soil. Better yet, these plant sources are all USDA certified organic.
As important, you get the natural nutritional co-factors that make the vitamins and minerals work more efficiently in your body - just like you get from food. In addition to facilitating faster and easier absorption into the body, these plant based nutrients are gentle on the stomach.
In fact, about 65% of the TrueMulti™ food blend is pure nutrient cofactors. What percent do you typically get in a regular multivitamin? Pretty close to 0%!
Since you’re probably taking a multivitamin to make up for or insure against a food shortcoming, doesn’t it make sense that the nutrients in your multivitamin should also come from food?
The answer is a resounding yes, and that’s what you get with TrueMulti™.
Back to Basics: Vitamins from Foods, Not Chemicals
Orgenetics®, Inc. was founded in 2007 by Dr. Jit Maheshvari (who has a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry) on the principle that not all vitamins are equal. Instead, he introduced a much healthier option to the industry and the world: 100% USDA Certified Organic vitamins and minerals from fruits, vegetables, and botanicals.
This goal was made possible thanks to a new patent pending water extraction process invented by Orgenetics® and its partners. It gave the company the ability to extract a concentrated form of all-natural and 100% organic vitamins from various fruits and vegetables along with existing co-nutrients of the same botanicals - similar to what you consume from food.
Only water is used during this extraction process - there’s no solvents excipients or carriers. Absolutely no synthetics or additives are used - and nothing is fermented.
Since its founding, Orgenetics® has received many accolades and awards for continuing to innovate through a dedicated research program and maintaining an exceptionally high quality for organic ingredients.
And today Orgenetics® offers a fully vertically integrated organic solution, from organic farm to ingredient.
NatureCity® is proud to partner with Orgenetics® to offer a true whole-food multivitamin made from six USDA certified organic plant foods.
Along with the vitamins and some key minerals, you get hundreds of cofactors (such as enzymes, bioflavonoids and antioxidants) naturally found in foods which your body is used to ingesting.
All of the foods used in TrueMulti™ are grown on a USDA certified organic 400 acre farm in India.
This farm does things the old fashioned way. You won’t find any chemical pesticides, fertilizers or GMOs here.
Instead of harmful chemicals, the farmers use methods like composting, crop rotation and inter-planting to control weeds and pests, replenish the soil and sustain the health of the environment.
This farm meets or exceeds all of the organic farming standards set by both the USDA National Organic Program and the European Union Organic Program. It is also certified Kosher.
What’s more, Orgenetics® adopted a cGMP standard far ahead of the guidelines proposed to the industry by the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA). In fact, Orgenetics® has been asked to be part of creating analytical methods for the Indian Herbal Pharmacopeia by the Indian Food and Drug Administration.
To support quality control (QC), the company has built an in-house laboratory, which is furnished with state of the art equipment.
QC managers assure that quality standards are met at various steps of the manufacturing process. Prior to an ingredient being released, final checks using the following tests are performed:
This commitment to quality and innovation makes Orgenetics® the perfect partner for TrueMulti™. Instead of man-made vitamins created in some lab, you get pure, organic whole food vitamins with cofactor nutrients for optimized health.
Vitashine® Vegan Vitaman D3
TrueMulti™ has been formulated to be suitable for those pursuing a vegetarian or vegan diet - which is why it includes Vitashine® vitamin D3.
Vitashine® is a 100% vegan and vegetarian suitable Vitamin D3 product. Vitashine® is registered with the Vegan Society and the Vegetarian Society, and its research data has been validated by independent expert laboratories (including world renowned Stirling University).
Vitashine® is extracted from a special, organic plant source called lichen.
A key part of the research and development of Vitashine® was to perfect a method to extract the Vitamin D3 rich oil while retaining stability. This was achieved via a system that extracts the oil in a totally light, heat and moisture controlled environment. The process is conducted at the European site where the sustainably grown lichen is obtained to ensure optimum freshness.
Safety is a top number priority and the makers of Vitashine® carefully selected a lichen that has been used in foods for centuries (and continues to be used today).
