Info: 120 Tablets

This isn't just a standard multi-vitamin with some key minerals in a convenient one tablet a day format (although it is that). It's a comprehensive multivitamin, mineral, botanical and glandular formulation made from a synergistic combination of Alfalfa, Eleuthero, Kelp, Licorice, cattle and pork gland extracts, and more, to support the endocrine, immune, integumentary, musculoskeletal, and nervous systems and the adrenal gland in carrying out their functions. It can support Energy production, Vision, Hair and Skin maintenance, and Thyroid functioning, and aid in Bone Health, Glucose Metabolism* (as well as assist in metabolizing carbohydrates, fats and proteins), and indeed aid one's Overall Health.

Product Notes:

* This contains chromium which supports healthy glucose metabolism by mediating the actions of insulin, which include regulating glucose uptake in cells and promoting its storage as glycogen.
