Ultivit™ - Research Brief:
Vitamins are vital substances for normal human functions. It is not an incident that the name “vitamin” came from Latin word “vita” meaning life.
All vitamins can be divided in two categories: liposoluble (fat-dissolving) and water-soluble. Liposoluble vitamins are vitamin A, D, E, and K, which are absorbed in the digestive tract with fats, or bonded to them. These vitamins can accumulate in the body.
Water-soluble vitamins are B group vitamins and vitamin C, which are absorbed from digestive tract with water. The excess of these vitamins are removed from the body.
Most of the vitamins enter the body with food, and support all physiological processes. Most of the vitamins are not synthesized at all, or not adequately synthesized by the body. For the exception of liposoluble vitamin A, D, and E human body cannot store vitamins for the future and have to obtain physiologically necessary dose on a day-to-day bases from outside.
For normal function human body needs not only nutrients and vitamins, but also micronutrients – chemical substances that are required in very small amounts, yet vital for many complicated bio-chemical processes. Mineral substances average about 5% of total body weight. The most important are calcium, iodine, iron, magnesium, copper, zinc, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, and chromium.
Even if your body is missing just one element, the whole chain of chemical reaction can be destroyed, and it can cause organ, and even system’s malfunction.
Insufficient consumption of vitamins, minerals, and microelements causes damage to your health: upsets metabolism, decreases body’s defenses, increases the destruction processes caused by adverse ecological effects on the body, decreases physical and mental work capacity, reduces the period of active life.
The deficiency of vitamin-antioxidants A, C, and E is one of the risk factors increasing cardio-vascular and cancer diseases.
The deficiency of vitamins aggravates any disease, slows down healing process. Vitamins and minerals deficiency is extremely dangerous for children and pregnant women because vitamins and minerals are vital for proper growth and development. That is why it is so important for you and your family to receive the necessary amount of vitamins, minerals, and microelements every day!
There are scientifically developed recommended norms for vitamin and mineral consumption in any country of the world. The necessary daily doses depend on age, sex, area of living, overall body’s condition. It is absolutely obvious that lack of any vitamins or minerals in a daily diet can cause serious health damage.
Today’s man does not receive adequate vitamin, mineral and microelement supply from food. In the evolution process human body developed certain demand for vitamins and minerals required to sustain the living process. These vitamins and minerals are basically obtained from food. Nowadays power inputs decreased twice, accordingly the amount of consumed food is supposed to decrease twice. If a human being is not using all the energy from food, adiposity process starts that leads to cardio-vascular diseases and diabetes.
Second factor is the change of nutrition structure: we do not eat enough fruits, vegetables, and fresh food, we often substitute it for processed food, food that does not require too much time to prepare, but do not contain an adequate amount of vitamins and minerals, and on the other hand rich with carcinogens. According to the research only 9% of USA population consumes recommended 5 portions of fruits and vegetables daily.
And how much fruits and vegetables do you and your family eat?
The third factor – changing ecological conditions: fruits, vegetables, and grain-crops are growing on exhausted land, under harmful effect of the environment.
The forth factor is the thermal treatment of the food, which destroys vitamins and minerals in it. 20%-45% of thiamine, 20%-40% of riboflavin, 20%-40% of niacin, 25%-50% of vitamin C is destroyed during cooking process. Minerals are also being destroyed under heat.
The fifth factor – during transportation and storage of fruits and vegetables their vitamin content can be drastically decreased. One of the experiments demonstrated that the freshly picked orange had 180 mg of vitamin C; the orange from the supermarket had vitamin C content close to zero, in spite of the fact that they looked and tasted the same.

Numerous medical researches conducted in different countries in the world showed that the majority of people suffer more or less from vitamin and mineral deficiency. This deficiency is increased due to some diseases, especially gastrointestinal, liver, and kidney, which affect vitamin and mineral assimilation. Medication (especially antibiotics), stress, limited food supply – all these factors aggravate vitamin deficiency.
Undoubtedly the basis of a good health is the correct nutrition, including 5 servings of fruits and vegetables daily. But unfortunately more scientists come to a conclusion that it is not enough to provide our body with all essential vitamins and micronutrients.
What are the advantages of dietary supplements? They are convenient to use. You can choose from a wide variety of formulas the most beneficial for you. They are easily digested; help to fight vitamin deficiency, and to improve overall health. Vitamin and microelement content in dietary food supplements is very precise and easy to measure; they are safe and effective (if you follow recommendations).
