Introducing Metabolic Multi

Metabolism hametabolic multis recently become a very important topic. As our food sources and activity levels have changed over time, so too have the success of our metabolic functions. It is now estimated that one in three adults live with metabolic syndrome – a combination of risk factors including high blood sugar and imbalanced cholesterol levels.

We knew we had to create a supplement to support healthy metabolism and energy balance for our customers.* We didn’t want a typical weight management formula, but instead a multivitamin and mineral supplement that offers more—real support for healthy metabolic functions. Metabolic Multi was born.*

A vegetarian, gluten free tablet featuring 38 nutrients, Metabolic Multi supports a wide range of metabolic health factors, including those that can contribute to Metabolic Syndrome.*

One of its most distinct characteristics is the inclusion of Phytosome complexes.

Can Your Supplements Support Behavior Balance?

behavior balance supplementCognitive function and brain health are on our minds this Autism Awareness Month. And we’re always proud to share that DaVinci’s pioneer product, DMG, has proven to be an important part of the supplement regimens of many families whose lives Autism has touched.

DMG is actually a precursor to many of the amino acids and neurotransmitters that aid in brain and nerve function.* It helps the body adapt to various forms of stress and supports immune system wellness.* Based on 20 years of extensive research into its benefits and safety, DaVinci has been awarded three U.S. patents on DMG.

Perhaps more important than this, though, are anecdotal reports of DMG’s benefits. It has been reported to modify and improve behavior, eye contact, social interaction, verbal skills and alertness.* It may also reduce lethargy, acting as an energy supportive nutrient.*

We saw what DMG meant and decided to offer another formula that provided more ingredients to work together to support balanced behavior patterns  Behavior Balance-DMG* was born.

Three All-in-One Supplements for Your Spring

DV-DB ultraMoving from winter to spring, we’re always looking for simple supplement solutions. We’re thinking strategically: how do we get the most out of one formula? Which ones are good to take on the go? How do we get everything done and still have time to stay on top of our health?

So this week, we decided to take a closer look at our favorite comprehensive supplement choices. These choices are all-in-ones, but they’re still specific to individual regimens, meaning you could choose more than one if it fit in for you. Of course, we always encourage talking to your doctor or nutritionist before starting any new regimen.

Herbal Supplements And Labeling: Truth Matters

truth label herbal supplementsAt DaVinci, we are believers that our customers have choices. When a company doesn’t tell the truth about what’s inside their supplements, those choices become less and less informed.

Perhaps more bothersome is that they become choices based on deceit, rather than honesty. Because we believe in choice, we believe in a simple concept called “truth in labeling.”

What exactly does that mean? It means that we list everything (and we mean everything) in our supplements right on their labels.

We don’t hide anything. We don’t leave out warnings or believe that not including one ingredient or naming the wrong ingredient is beneficial to our customers — so we don’t do those things, either.

When you are choosing supplements, look for a company that truly stands behind its commitment to sharing the facts on each label, for each product. When you consider the recent news about several large corporations not meeting their label claims on herbal supplements, you see that a commitment to truth is a number one requirement of any company you choose.

What’s the Best Multivitamin for Me?

By Toria Cornett, ATC, CSCS

multivitamin choiceRecent research from the American Medical Association found that over half our population is currently taking a multivitamin.  Multivitamins are over a $4 billion per year industry!

But the success of the industry doesn’t mean that there isn’t still a debate over multis. Is it necessary for you to take one? Is it a waste? What is the best multivitamin for you? These questions constantly wander through the conversations of nutritionists, naturopaths, chiropractors, and even those not involved in the industry.

A lot of folks agree that those people who are prone to have a deficiency should consider taking a multivitamin. But the general consensus is that you can obtain all the necessary vitamins and nutrients from eating a balanced diet. Ninety percent of Americans think they are eating a ‘healthy diet,’ but 68% of Americans are overweight!

How many of us are actually eating a well-balanced, nutrient-dense diet?  There is little debate that the elderly, pregnant women, vegetarians and individuals with certain health conditions should take a multivitamin. But if you don’t fall into one of these categories, what’s the necessity?
