Multivitamin-Multimineral Supplement - 240 Capsules

Thorne Research Nutri-Fem® is a multivitamin and mineral for women of childbearing age.

Why should everyone take a multiple vitamin-mineral supplement? Nutrition experts agree that, due to the state of the current food supply and because few Americans eat the recommended five servings daily of health-giving fruits and vegetables, a multiple vitamin-mineral formulation should be taken daily. Even the Journal of the American Medical Association, not known as a supporter of dietary supplements, has finally agreed that everyone should take a multi. A multi could be considered "dietary insurance," a small price to pay to be sure you get all the essential nutrients daily, even if you don't eat right. Even greater health benefits can be realized if you eat a healthy diet in addition to taking a multi.

A comprehensive multiple for women of childbearing age.

  • Provides the active forms of folic acid - L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate and folinic acid in a balanced 1:1 ratio
  • Contains calcium and magnesium in the highly absorbable citrate-malate form
  • Provides the active, readily usable forms of vitamins B6 and B2
  • Contains botanicals to support healthy hormone balance
  • Use in conjunction with Bio-PMT® for additional support during the premenstrual phase

Young women have their own unique nutritional needs. That's why we developed Nutri-Fem, a dietary supplement for women of childbearing age. Nutri-Fem contains optimal amounts of the well-absorbed vitamins and minerals found in our popular Basic Nutrients products - trace minerals as picolinates and our highly bioavailable, patented chromium - UltraChrome. Providing iron bound to picolinate alleviates the risk of gastric upset or constipation associated with less-absorbable forms of iron. Studies have shown that calcium supplementation confers long-term benefit to younger women, and Nutri-Fem includes the best-absorbed form of calcium and magnesium - citrate-malate. Nutri-Fem also contains 1,600 IU of pure vitamin D in a full daily dose to promote bone health. Studies show that establishing good bone health should begin well before menopause, even in women in the 18-35 year age group. Risk factors for poor bone health in this age group include physical inactivity, low body weight, eating disorders, poor nutrition, and menarche at age 15 or later.

Additional nutrients and botanicals are included to specifically benefit active younger women. A woman who consumes a healthful diet with adequate folate may reduce her risk of having a child with a birth defect of the brain or spinal cord. Folate intake should not exceed 250 percent of the government's recommended daily value (1,000 mcg). Nutri-Fem contains 1,000 mcg of the active folates - L-5-MTHF and folinic acid. Wild yam extract is added to optimize hormone balance.

Some customers have noted that the multiple vitamin-mineral formulas have a strong odor. This is particularly noticeable to patients who have been taking the multiples long-term. The change in odor is due to the fact that we have (over the past year) changed from selenium picolinate to selenomethionine. While we believe selenomethionine is a superior form of selenium, it does have a bit of a sulfur smell, which is normal and does not reflect a problem with the product.
