We often get asked how these two products differ and why one would choose MultiV-PRO or MultiV. The following information will help explain the differences so you can decide which product suits you best.
Endurance athletes put a lot of stress on their body and accordingly they have significantly different needs and requirements than the general population. Because of this, higher levels of micro-nutrients are required in order to avoid overtraining and other ailments. In addition to having the highest quality, most bio-available vitamins and chelated minerals, both products offer clinically effective doses of enzymes, green tea and ginkgo biloba.
Both MultiV and MultiV-PRO should be viewed as a comprehensive daily multivitamin for athletes who train strenuously.
With MultiV-PRO, you get a pre-biotic gut health blend, premium immune system support, and a clinically effective dose of Vitamin D. These benefits are critical to athletes who train like a professional athlete and/or those spending time at altitude.
- With heavy training loads, athletes consume large amounts of calories, mainly in the form of carbohydrates. This can put a high demand on the digestive system often resulting in gastric distress. Research shows nearly 70% of athletes training strenuously experience gut discomfort. The combination of digestive enzymes along with a pre-biotic blend of saccharomyces cerevisiae and fructo oligosaccharides in MultiV-PRO assures that intestinal flora and general gut health can keep up with the consumption of calories.
- MultiV-PRO supports the immune system with a clinically effective dose of Beta Glucan. Historically athletes used high levels of antioxidants or vitamin C to ward off illness and to strengthen the immune. These methods have been shown to hinder mitochondrial biogenysis. In other words, these antioxidants limit the very endurance gains you are seeking. With 1,3/1,6 Beta Glucan, you can make endurance gains and simultaneously strengthen your immune system, allowing you to remain healthy and continue training every day.
- MultiV-PRO contains a clinically effective dose of 2,500IU Vitamin D. Vitamin D plays a role in bone strength, immune function, inflammation and muscle strength.
*Athletes can effectively go back and forth between both products. It’s perfectly acceptable to use MultiV for a couple months during the off season or light training and switch to the MultiV-PRO for heavy training months.
