A multivitamin is a multivitamin, right? Is there much of a difference between 1-daily supplement brands? The importance of natural vitamins with methylated folate, the right minerals, and no additives must be emphasized if you’re to support good health. Consider a coenzymated multivitamin formula for men, women or age 45+.
Coenzymated Vitamins: Methylated Folate
Doctor-Formulated Women’s and Men’s Daily Multi supplements contain bioavailable coenzymated forms of nutrients like vitamin B2 (R-5-P), vitamin B6 (P-5-P), and folic acid (Methyl Folate). Why? In regards to vitamin B-9, the body must convert standard folic acid or “natural folate” into its Coenzymated (6S)-5- Methyl Tetrahydrofolate MTHF active form in order for it to be effectively utilized. Unfortunately, almost half of Americans are born with one of several possible genetic mutations affecting either one MTHFR gene (heterozygous mutation) or both MTHFR genes (homozygous mutation). Choose vitamins with 5-MTHF form of folic acid.
Oh, no – Heterozygous
The consequences of this particular gene variation (CT) offers significantly reduced enzymatic activity, functioning at only 71% of normal. The lack of enzyme activity can lead to abnormally high homocysteine activity. Too much homocysteine damages blood vessels and is a recognized risk factor for premature heart attack and stroke.
Oh, no – Homozygous
Significantly worse, this gene variation (TT) means your blood homocysteine level is also likely to be very high. Cardio and cognitive risks are high. This variation is also associated with a 69% greater risk of suffering from depression and a 36% higher risk of developing schizophrenia. If you have this gene variation, your MTHFR enzymatic activity will only reach 34% of normal.
Choose vitamins you can absorb and use regardless if you have a gene variation, or not. This brand has what’s needed: methylated folate, the right minerals, and no additives.
Natural 1-Daily Multivitamins for Men and Women
Each multi supplement, whether Women’s 1-Daily, Women’s 45+ 1-Daily, Men’s 1-Daily, Men’s 45+ 1-Daily or Complete 1-Daily Multi, are all made with clinical potency you expect and far more. Look for:
- NonGMO ingredients

- 5-MTHF vitamins – with methylated folate
One Daily Prenatal Multi
Moreover, women are particularly at risk when they become pregnant. Due to the MTHFR mutation, they may not readily absorb the synthetic folic acid found in common Prenatal formulas. No worries. Dr. Formulated offers coenzymated prenatal 1-Daily vitamins, too, with all the great features you found above and more to support a healthy pregnancy. Recent research has shown that over 46% of people cannot metabolize synthetic folic acid or natural folate unless it is in its CoEnzymated form ((6S)-5-Methyltetrahydrofolate MTHF.) This key nutrient is essential for healthy early fetal development.
