What Is The Best Multivitamin For You?

Throughout the United States, taking a daily multivitamin has become fairly common. We see advertisements on TV or in the store promising us “better health” if we take certain vitamins deemed necessary for our lifestyle. But do you know which is best to take? And do you really know if it is working?

It is estimated that only 10% of Americans actually eat the recommended number of daily fruits and vegetables. We are overfed, but we are also undernourished. ­Many multivitamins on the market promise to change that. They offer a variety of vitamins and minerals that are supposed to whip you into tip-top shape. But many of these products use cheap ingredients with low bioavailability → less absorption of those vital nutrients in your body.

XFactor Plus strives to use the most bioavailable and bioactive forms of nutrients, offering 100% daily value of 19 essential vitamins and minerals. XFactor Plus is specifically recommended for anyone wanting to improve their overall wellness by filling in this gap of nutrients, while also benefiting their gut health. Everybody needs a multivitamin.

So, what is in XFactor Plus that makes this the perfect multivitamin? There are A LOT of vitamins, minerals and plant extracts in this product (and you can see the specific functions of each ingredient at the end of this post). Here are the primary benefits of XFactor Plus ingredients:

  1. Vitamins →  the vitamins included in this product have a multitude of different functions. A few key takeaways include improved immune function, improved heart health, and improved metabolism of fats and carbohydrates for energy production. You will have improved skeletal and muscle function, and healthier skin, hair and nails. Helps improve mood and support thyroid function.
  2. Minerals →  the minerals included in XFactor Plus are focused on improving cognitive function (healthy nerves) and mental clarity, supporting bone health, and facilitating metabolism of fats and carbohydrates for energy production.
  3. Plant Extracts →  primarily provide support against free radicals through antioxidant defense. Some also offer anti-inflammatory effects in the gut and a reduction in menopause symptoms including hot flashes and fatigue. Polyphenols present in plant extracts protect your microbiome.

You may be thinking to yourself, “why should I buy XFactor Plus if I can find these ingredients in other multivitamins?” Here is the most important advantage → XFactor Plus delivers the most bioactive and bioavailable forms of these ingredients to allow for the best possible absorption by your body. This means that it is highly potent and easily used by the body. Clinical studies of this product also demonstrate a “microbiome activating complex” →  this means that XFactor Plus also works to protect your gut by activation and improved function of good gut bacteria…lactobacillus, akkermansia, and Bifidobacterium. This product also comes in a capsule (rather than a tablet) because tablets take longer for the body to dissolve and also tend to contain many artificial ingredients used as binding agents.

So, who needs XFactor Plus? The answer is simple…everyone*. I like to think of this product as “insurance.” It is a daily guarantee that your body receives the vitamins and minerals it needs in a readily absorbable form.

90% of Americans are nutritionally deficient. Don’t let yourself become another scary statistic. Ask me about PlexusQuestions logo

 

 

 
 
 

 

 

Specific list of vitamins in XFactor Plus:
  • Vitamin A →  helps with skeletal development, vision, and immune function. Promotes healthy skin.
  • Vitamin B1 →  gives you energy by improving the metabolism of carbohydrates.
  • Vitamin B2 →  Promotes muscle function (including the heart muscle). Improves bran function. Also aids in proper circulation, healthy skin and digestion.
  • Vitamin B3 →  assists in the release of energy from foods you eat.
  • Vitamin B5 →  precursor to the production of Vitamin A. Assists with the breakdown of carbohydrates for energy.
  • Vitamin B6 →  plays a role in the use of amino acids in the body. Assists with energy production and neurotransmitter synthesis…it is a vital component in the formation of myelin, which ensures proper functioning of the nervous system. Aids with hemoglobin production (reducing anemia). Promotes heart health when taken in conjunction with folic acid.
  • Vitamin B7 →  many of you may know this as “biotin.” Strengthens hair and nails. Assists in metabolism of fatty acids for energy production.
  • Vitamin B9 →  essential for cell replication and growth. Supports the building blocks of DNA and RNA (vital for all body components!). Boosts the benefits of Vitamin B6. Supports a healthy heart. Critical for nervous system development of the fetus in pregnant women. Supports the nervous system. **
  • Vitamin B12 →  Synthesizes proteins and assists in the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates. Essential in the production of methyl donors involved in heart function, blood cell formation and nervous system function.
  • Vitamin C →  many of us know that vitamin C supports the immune system, but it also promotes heart health and provides the body with antioxidant defense. ***
  • Vitamin D →  aids in the absorption of calcium, promoting healthy bones. Supports the digestive system.
  • Vitamin E →  boots the immune system with antioxidant defense. Protects cells from free radical damage….remember, free radicals are toxic byproducts of oxygen interacting with certain molecules in the body. Antioxidants fight free radicals.
  • Vitamin K →  if you have young children, you may remember hearing about this vitamin in the hospital. Vitamin K is used by the body to help make clots and prevent bleeding. Vital for bone growth. Supports heart health.
 

 

Specific list of minerals in XFactor Plus:
  • Calcium →  essential for development and maintenance of strong bones. Remember that your teeth are bones too….calcium supports good dental health. Absorption of calcium is promoted by vitamin D.
  • Magnesium →  crucial to nerve transmission, muscle contraction, blood coagulation and energy production. Reduces inflammation.
  • Zinc →  strengthens bones, fights against cancer and boosts the immune system, heals chronic fungal infections and supports cognitive function. Improves skin through collagen production. Increases energy levels and plays a role in digestion.
  • Selenium →  neutralizes free radicals through antioxidant defense.
  • Copper →  promotes health of bone, connective tissue, the heart and skin. Activates enzymes critical for energy metabolism. Assists in formation of hemoglobin (reducing anemia).
  • Manganese →  improves bone and connective tissue function.
  • Chromium →  supports metabolism of fats and carbohydrates for energy production.
  • Molybendum →  supports metabolism of fats and carbohydrates for energy production.
  • Boron →  improves bone and joint function.

  • Cranberry →  antioxidant properties destroy free radicals.
  • Aloe Vera →  improves digestion and decreases yeast infections.
  • Blackcurrant →  antioxidant properties destroy free radicals. Known as a “super fruit” for its rich source of anthocyanins, which offer anti-inflammatory

*XFactor Plus is only recommend for adults above the age of 18. If you are pregnant, talk to your obstetrician.
**Plexus is unique in how it included folate as vitamin B9 as L-methylfolate,calcium,5-MTHF. This is the most bioactive form of folate allowing it to be better absorbed and retained in the body.
***Plexus is unique in how it included vitamin C as ascorbic acid and ascorbyl palmitate. Ascorbyl palmitate is a fat-soluble form of vitamin C, which is better absorbed than ascorbic acid, the water-soluble form. It is an amphipathic molecule, meaning one end is water-soluble and the other end is fat-soluble. This dual solubility allows it to be incorporated into cell membranes. When incorporated into the cell membranes ascorbyl palmitate has been found to protect them from oxidative damage by free radicals.
