Why take multivitamins on Keto or Atkins
Consider Nutri-Align Multivit if any of the following apply:
You started a low-carb diet for the first time
Switching to a low-carb lifestyle is a major change for your body. Multivit provides 20 extra-strong vitamins and minerals to maintain your micronutrient levels throughout the transition period.
You have strong sugar cravings
Multivit includes extra-strong chromium and green tea extract which can help to regulate blood sugar levels and reduce sugar cravings. It prevents vitamin deficiencies which can also cause cravings.
You feel tired most of the time
Tiredness is common at the beginning of low-carb diets, while your body adjusts to burning fat for fuel. Magnesium, B-vitamins and vitamin C improve energy-yielding metabolism and reduce fatigue.
Supplementation was recommended by your doctor or dietitian
Unlike generic multivitamins, Nutri-Align Multivit complements the nutritional make-up of a low-carb diet and bridges potential gaps in your micronutrient intake.
You are worried about getting all the required nutrients from food alone
As you will consume fewer fruit and grains on a low-carb diet, a daily multivitamin is a simple zero-carb substitute for any vitamins you may be missing out on.
Multivitamins for Atkins Diet
Dr Atkins strongly recommended taking supplements to support Atkins diet.
In his original book, he devoted a whole chapter to this topic, advising extra-strong dosages of certain vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. These supplements can help to speed up your transition to ketosis, improve energy levels and stabilise blood sugar levels. Read more about Dr Atkins’ recommendations for Atkins Diet supplements.
In order to fulfil all of these recommendations, some dieters have to take up to five different supplements: iron-free multivitamin, extra B-vitamin complex, chromium, magnesium and potassium.
Multivit combines these nutrients in a single formula, developed specifically to support low-carb diets.
Is Nutri-Align Multivit the same as Atkins Basic #3?
Atkins Basic #3 Formula was designed by Dr Atkins specifically to support Atkins diet. It included 30 different vitamins and minerals, with dosages of B, C and E vitamins substantially higher than NRV. The formula also included chromium, selenium and green tea extract.
Unfortunately, Atkins Nutritionals stopped producing Atkins Basic #3 product. But many Atkins followers still use it as a guideline for how to supplement their Atkins Diet. You can view the full list of ingredients for Atkins Basic #3 in his original book.
We studied Dr Atkins research when developing the formulation for Nutri-Align Multivit and complemented it with the latest scientific findings. Although not exactly the same, Multivit follows Dr Atkins recommendations on low-carb supplementation.
