Level Up: The Ultimate Multivitamin Guide for Optimal Performance

Level Up: The Ultimate Multivitamin Guide for Optimal Performance

Are you getting all of the vitamins and minerals you need?  

 

If you are like most Americans-  you likely are NOT eating a nutrient-rich diet. Do any of these describe you?

 

- You follow a diet that restricts or eliminates certain foods or macronutrients.

- You’re a picky eater.

- You struggle to eat a variety of foods.

- You eat the same foods every day.

- You have a hard time including a variety of fruits and vegetables in your diet.

- You eat a lot of processed foods 

- You are SUPER BUSY- you skip meals or eat on the go. 

 

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, you might benefit from a multivitamin.

 

What should you look for in a multivitamin?

 

A good multivitamin contains key vitamins and minerals necessary for health, such as magnesium and zinc. We often overlook trace minerals-  these are essential minerals that support functions like metabolism, muscle and brain function, hormone regulation, and protection from free radicals. Soil degradation and over-farming have depleted these nutrients in our food, and they are often missing from standard multivitamins.

 

The Driven Difference

 

At Driven, our daily multivitamins are precision-designed to meet the critical needs of active men and women. His™ / Hers™ offer a cost-effective way to ensure you get all your essential micronutrients to perform at your best in the gym, at work, and at home.

 

The source of your vitamins and trace minerals is critical for health. Our formula includes the highest bioavailable vitamins and minerals through methylated and chelated sources.

 

Methylated vitamins are in a form that the body can immediately use, such as methylcobalamin (B12) and methylfolate (folate). This is important because not everyone converts vitamins to their active forms efficiently due to genetic differences, like those in the MTHFR gene for folate.

 

Chelated minerals are bound to an organic compound, usually an amino acid, to enhance absorption and utilization in the body. This leads to better absorption, bioavailability, and activation of processes in the body that require these vitamins and minerals.

 

His / Hers include vitamins D3 and K2, ensuring calcium is absorbed properly, reaching the bones and preventing arterial calcification, keeping your heart and bones healthy. We include 2,500 IUs of Vitamin D-3, significantly more than the typical 400-700 IUs in big-box brands. Vitamin D, produced when the body is exposed to sunlight, is crucial since most of us don’t get enough from sun exposure alone.

 

Vitamin D helps reduce inflammation, lowers the risk of colon and breast cancer, improves mood and respiratory health, and aids in sleep by helping the brain release melatonin.

 

B vitamins are vital for energy production and muscle tissue repair. Thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, B6, pantothenic acid, and biotin are involved in energy production during exercise. Folate and B12 are necessary for red blood cell production, protein synthesis, and tissue repair.

 

Magnesium, essential in biological systems, is a common deficiency, with studies showing 85% of Americans lack it. It regulates heart rhythm, reduces blood pressure, and is necessary for producing ATP, the main energy source in our cells.

 

Our His / Hers formulas provide gender-specific support. For men (His), promotes vitality and prostate health. For women (Hers), supports healthy skin, energy, and thermogenesis.

 

Conclusion: 

 

Ensuring you receive the essential vitamins and minerals your body needs is crucial for overall health and well-being. Given the challenges of maintaining a nutrient-rich diet, especially in today's fast-paced lifestyle, a high-quality multivitamin can fill the gaps. Driven's His and Hers daily multivitamins offer a comprehensive solution, providing bioavailable and chelated forms of vital nutrients, including magnesium, zinc, and high doses of Vitamin D3, tailored to support the specific needs of men and women. By incorporating these precision-designed supplements into your routine, you can enhance your energy, improve your mood, and support critical bodily functions, ensuring you perform at your best every day.
