What is in Go Multivitamin and mineral

Citrus bioflavonoid complex

A large group of anti-oxidants found in citrus fruits, that are sometimes referred to as Vitamin P.  Citrus bioflavonoids are essential for the effective utilization of Vitamin C by the body.  They are believed to have anti-inflammatory, anti-viral and anti-allergy properties.

Bilberry fruit extract

Bilberry fruit contains high concentrations of tannins, which are substances that act as an anti-inflammatory.  This fruit also contains flavonoid compounds  called anthocyanidins, which have anti-oxidant properties.  Anthocyanidin helps to build strong capillaries and improve circulation throughout the body.  The bilberry fruit has been associated with the care and treatment  of atherosclerosis, cataracts, diabetes, diarrhea, and vision disorders.

Broccoli sprout extract

Broccoli sprouts contain a substance called sulforaphane.  This substance is known to have anti-bacterial and anti-cancer properties.  It can be found in cruciferous vegetables such as cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, brussel sprouts and radish.  Studies show that a diet rich in these cruciferous vegetables are beneficial to your health.  Benefits of this extract include helping the body rid itself of toxins, alleviate allergy and asthma symptoms, boost the immune system, protect the skin from UV damage,  and help reduce the risk of bladder, prostate and stomach cancer.


Vanadium is a trace mineral that is essential for maintaining a healthy body.  Vanadium works in concert with molybdenum.  Intriguing studies indicate that vanadium may help to normalize blood glucose levels, lower blood pressure, and enhance athletic performance.  There are also studies that suggest that vanadium may help individuals with bipolar disorder.


Inositol plays an important role in the body as it helps the nervous sytem to function.   While it is not essential to the human diet, it helps to maintain cell membranes of highly specialized cells such as in the brain, eyes, bone marrow and intestines.  Inositol helps to promote hair growth and may also have a role as an anticancer agent.   People who drink caffiene or take numerous antibiotics may have an increased need for inositol because both these interfere with its effectiveness.


Molybdenum is a trace element that is found in several tissues of the body and is necessary for certain enzymatic activities to occur.


Chromuim is a team player with other elements to keep our metabolism running effieciently.  It is estimated that the majority of Americans only get about half of what is needed.  Chromium is needed to help maintain normal blood sugar.


Manganese is a mineral element that plays an important role in numerous physiologic processes.  Manganese plays a role in metabolism, bone development, wound healing and as the principal antioxidant in mitochondria.  Insufficient levels of manganese have been associated with osteoporosis, glucose intolerance and epilepsy.


Selenium is a trace element that is essential in small amounts.  Selenium deficiency has been associated with an impaired immune system and increase progression of viral disease.  There is a great deal of evidence that selenium reduces the incidence of cancer and that deficiency of selenium is associated with an increase in prostate and lung cancer.


Zinc is an essential element for all forms of life.  Zinc plays an important role in the structure of proteins and cell membranes.  Numerous aspects of cellular metabolism are zinc dependent.  Zinc plays a significant role in growth and development, neurologic function, immune response, and reproduction.


Magnesium is involved in well over 300 metabolic reactions in the human body.  Over 60% of the magnesium in the body is found in the skeleton and about 30% found in the muscle.  Magnesium plays an important function in energy production, synthesis of molecules, cell signaling, iron transport, cell migration, and nutrient interactions.  Deficiency in healthy individuals who are eating a healthy diet is rare as magnesium is abundant in both plant and animal sources.  Magnesium can help to prevent hypertension, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, diabetes, migraines, asthma, and vascular disorders.


Iodine is a non-metallic trace element that is required by the human body for proper synthesis of thyroid hormones.  Deficiency of iodine can lead to hypothyroidism, goiter, fatigue, weight gain, cold intolerance, and constipation.


Calcium is the most common mineral in the human body.  About 99% of calcium is found in the bones and teeth.  Calcium is the major structural element  in both bones and teeth.  Calcium may help to prevent colorectal cancers, osteoporosis, hypertension,and premenstrual syndrome.  Individuals with diets that have sufficient calcium intake are associated with a reduced incidence of being overweight.


Biotin is a water soluble vitamin that is required for enzymatic function in the human body.  Deficiency is rare unless an individual is receiving parenteral feedings without biotin and in individuals who consume raw egg whites.  Adequate biotin helps to prevent birth defects, diabetes, hair loss, and brittle fingernails.

Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 has the largest and most complex structure of all the vitamins.  Methylcobalamin is required for for the folate dependent enzyme, methionine synthase.  This enzyme is required for the synthesis of the amino acid, methionine, from homocysteine.  Inadequate function of this is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.  Vitamin B12 deficiency affects 10-15% of people over the age of 60.  Absorption of vitamin B12 from food sources requires normal function of the stomach, pancreas, and small intestine.  Symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency include megaloblastic anemia, neurologic symptoms, gastrointestinal symptoms, cardiovascular disease, dementia, alzheimer’s disease, increase incidence of breast cancer, and depression.

Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6 must be obtained from the diet as humans cannot synthesize it.  Vitamin B6 plays a vital role in over 100 enzymatic reactions.  It is necessary for nervous system function, red blood cell formation and function, niacin formation, hormone function, and nucleic acid synthesis.  Vitamin B6 helps to prevent cardiovascular disease, improve immune function, and cognitive function.

Niacin B3

Niacin is a water-soluble vitamin.  Also known as nicotinic acid or vitamin B3.  Living organisms derive most of their energy from oxidation-reduction reactions(redox), which is a process involving the transfer of electrons.  As many as 200 enzymes require the niacin coenzymes for redox reactions.  Niacin deficiency can result in pellagra, increased incidence of cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and high cholesterol.


Riboflavin is a water-soluble B vitamin, also known as vitamin B2.  Riboflavin also has oxidation-reduction(redox) functions, antioxidant functions, and nutrient interactions.


Thiamin, a water-soluble B vitamin, aka(vitamin B1 or thiamine). Thiamin is necessary for enzymatic function.  Deficiency of thiamin can lead to berberi.  Thiamin helps to prevent cataracts, alzheimer’s disease, congestive heart failure, and cancer.

Vitamin K2

Vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin.  Vitamin K is essential for the functioning of several proteins involved in blood clotting.  Although vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin, the body store very little of it, and its stores are rapidly depleted without regular intake. Vitamin K is also important in bone mineralization, cell growth, osteoporosis, and cardiovascular disease.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that is essential for maintaining normal calcium metabolism.  Vitamin D3 can be synthesized by humans in the skin by exposure to sunlight, or it can be obtained through diet.  Vitamin D is also important for cell differentiation, immunity, insulin secretion, and blood pressure regulation.  Deficiency of Vitamin D can lead to rickets, osteoporosis, osteomalacia, muscle weakness, colorectal cancer, breast cancer, depression, and pain.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C, also know as ascorbic acid, is a water soluble vitamin.  Humans do not make vitamin C, so we must consume it.  Vitamin C is necessary for the synthesis of collagen.  Collagen is an important structural component of blood vessels, ligaments, tendons, and bone.  Vitamin C also plays an important role in the synthesis of  norepinephrine.  A neurotransmitter that is critical to brain function.  Vitamin C is required for the synthesis of carnitine, which is essential for the transport of fat into cellular organelles called mitochondria, where fat is converted into energy.  Vitamin C is a highly effective antioxidant.  Vitamin C deficiency can cause scurvy.  Vitamin C helps to prevent coronary heart disease, strokes, cancer, cataracts, gout, hypertension, diabetes, and helps to bolster the immune system.

What is not in Go Multivitamin and mineral and why.


Although copper is an essential trace element, supplementation is unnecessary as copper is found extensively in a wide variety of foods.  The average dietary intake of copper on a daily basis exceeds the recommended dietary intake.  There are studies that indicate that excess copper is associated with a decreased immune function, lower antioxidant status, increased atherosclerosis, and mental decline.


While iron is an essential element, it is potentially toxic.  Accidental iron overdose is the single largest cause of poisoning fatalities in children.  Iron supplementation only needs to occur in a deficient state.  Individuals at increased risk of iron deficiency are those with; chronic blood loss, pregnant, celiac disease, h. pylori infection, gastric bypass, strict vegetarians, and those who engage in regular intense exercise.  It is recommended to have your iron levels checked to see if supplementation is necessary.

Folic acid

There is disturbing evidence that excess folic acid supplementation may encourage tumor growth.  Folate is found naturally in grains, fruits, and vegetables, and in its natural state is of no concern and the preferred way of intake.  There is sufficient folic acid added to numerous products that in combination with supplementation an individual can easily exceed the daily recommended allowance.

Beta Carotene and Vitamin A

Beta carotene is the precursor to vitamin A.  There is research to suggest that in excess it may increase the risk of cancer.  The problem is believed to result when beta carotene is ingested without other carotenoids that are present if it is ingested as real food.  Once again, eat your fruits and vegetables.  A person that is eating a reasonably healthy diet will be converting beta carotene to vitamin A and as such supplementation is unnecessary.  Vitamin A in excess is toxic to the liver and increases the risk of hip fracture.
