Age, Gender and Activity Specific
Age Specific – Our needs change as we age. For example, maintaining our bone mass and balancing our hormones become higher priorities and require the correct nutritional support.
Gender Specific – Men and women are physiologically different. As a result, so are the nutrients we require. The Progressive Adult Men's & Women's formulas take these differences into account. Specific ratios of vitamins, minerals and herbal extracts are incorporated into each formula to meet your unique requirements.
Activity Specific – If you exercise often your body needs additional nutrients. Increased energy production, greater free radical defense, electrolyte replacement and the maintenance of muscle tone all elevate your nutritional demands. The Progressive “Active” formulas contain higher potencies of the key nutrients responsible for supporting a more active lifestyle.
Our bodies aren’t designed to accept nutrients in one large dose once a day. By eating smaller, more frequent meals your body will absorb more nutrients from your food. The same principle applies to vitamins and minerals, which often have a short life span in your system and need to be replenished throughout the day. This reduces the benefit of a “one-a-day” formula. Progressive MultiVitamins are designed to provide a constant supply of nutrients and deliver the right potency at the right time.
Supplementing with enzymes is a bit like taking a dairy-based Probiotic. It will do you some good while in your system, but once it passes through you, that benefit is lost. Our formulas contain a family of digestive aids, including Fringe Tree Bark, Bitter Gourd and Milk Thistle. They work to stimulate your body's own natural production of enzymes, enhancing not only the absorption of your multi, but everything else you ingest as well.
Many experts feel that capsules, when compared with traditional hard tablets, offer far greater and more thorough absorption of the nutrients they contain. For this reason, Progressive MultiVitamins are packaged in easy-to-digest, easy-to-swallow capsules. In addition, only pure vegetable-based capsules are used, eliminating concerns over the impurities and potential contaminants associated with beef-and pork-based gelatin capsules.
Isolate and Botanical Ingredients
Isolated nutrients provide the high potency of vitamins and minerals you need in the smallest possible capsule. Botanical compounds add the holistic benefit of the complete plant. The botanical ingredients in our MultiVitamins have also been chosen for their gender-and lifestyle-specific benefits.
