Back to Basics: Vitamins from Foods, Not Chemicals
The company who grows and supplies the plant based vitamins in TrueMulti is named Star Hi Herbs, and was founded in 2004 in Bangalore, India. Their vitamin brand is named Storg®.
Over the last two decades, Star Hi Herbs has received many accolades and awards for using advanced technology to manufacture superior quality botanical ingredients that users know they can trust. They are also very active in the Indian communities, promoting student education, sponsoring advanced degreees and agricultural training.
The plant materials used to make the in TrueMulti™ are from USDA Certified Organic farms in southern India that use traditional farming methods that promote ecological balance and conserve biodiversity.
No chemical pesticides, fertilizers, irradiation or GMOs are used at these farms. Crop rotation and natural compost methods are employed.
At state-of the-art facilities located in Bangalore and Hassan, India, the freshly harvested organic plant material undergoes nutrient extraction using a solvent-free water based process. No fermentation is involved – these are vitamins in their natural form.
Everything is done per cGMP guidelines (as defined by the United States Food & Drug Administration) under the watchful eyes of dedicated quality control professionals.
Besides having GMP certifications for quality and safety, these facilities also have ISO, Kosher, Halal and Ayush certifications.
The final result in a concentrated powder consisting of all-natural and organic vitamins along with co-factors and co-nutrients, which are naturally part of the same plants.
These co-nutrients and co-factors (like flavonoids and polyphenols) support faster and easier vitamin absorption into the body, with minimal to no stomach irritation.
Instead of man-made vitamins created in a lab, with TrueMulti™ you get pure, organic whole food vitamins with co-factor nutrients for optimized health.
Since vitamin B12 is not found it plants, we have to add it separately. We chose the “active” form of vitamin B12 from the MecobalActive™ brand.
MecobalActive™ is vegan, Non-GMO and made in Barcelona, Spain. It has superior absorption properties compared to other vitamin B12 options.
With active MecobalActive™ vitamin B12, no conversion in the body is necessary – it is already in the form your body needs and can be put to use immediately.
VegD3® Organic Vegan Vitamin D3
TrueMulti™ has been formulated to be suitable for those pursuing a vegetarian or vegan diet - which is why it includes VegD3® vitamin D3, which is made from organic algae.

With VegD3®, we now have an organic plant based vitamin D3 that’s identical in structure to the D3 obtained from animal sources.
VegD3® is produced from a 100% non-GMO algae source – and is completely sustainable.
VegD3® offers a 100% sustainable and traceable end-to-end supply chain process with complete control on quality and purity. The process is to make VegD3 doesn’t use any pesticides - it is a very “clean” ingredient.
VegD3® is also approved by the Vegan Society, and is a good option for anyone seeking plant based ingredients – or high quality vitamin D3 in general.
