Our bodies perform thousands of important biological functions, which rely on proper supply of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. Many of these essential nutrients our bodies cannot synthesize and rely on food sources to replenish the supply. Ideally, all these nutrients would be obtained from a varied and well-balanced diet. However, in today's fast-paced world many of us do not have the time to prepare healthy and nutritionally diverse meals. Taking a high-quality balanced multivitamin supplement like Balanced Trio would insure appropriate supply of all the key nutrients to help the body perform its vital functions.
Three formulas that constitute Balanced Trio vitamin system provide scientifically balanced amounts of all the essential vitamins and minerals, plus over 70 trace minerals, plant-derived antioxidants, omega-3 fish oil, CoQ10 and unique mix of herbal/fruit standardized extracts. Together Morning, Mid-day and Evening formula supply the body with all the essentials micronutrients it needs on a daily basis. Taking Balanced Trio is equivalent to taking 5 separate supplements: daily multivitamin, fish oil, CoQ10, antioxidant formula and Cal/Mag supplement. When taking Balanced Trio vitamin system, you avoid the confusion of what supplement to take when and how to combine them, plus all the vitamins and minerals in our formulas are grouped by synergy.
Balanced Trio formulas were created based on numerous research that analyzed interactions between specific vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. Research studies show that some combinations of vitamins and minerals enhance absorption of one another, while other combinations greatly inhibit absorption of individual components.

One-a-day multivitamins include very small amounts of such vital minerals as calcium, magnesium and potassium. They do not include omega-3 fish oil and botanical antioxidants, or only include them in minute amounts. Also, they often include minerals in the oxides form, which is much less bulky, but also much less absorbed form of minerals. One serving of our Morning formula consists of three small capsules, the bulk of which are botanical antioxidants. One serving of our Mid-day formula consists of three tablets, the bulk of which is a fish oil. One serving of our Evening formula consists of three tablets, the bulk of which are calcium and magnesium.
Yes, definitely. While for the best results we suggest taking all three formulas apart from each other, it is ok to take Morning and Mid-day formulas at the same time. It is best not to combine Mid-day and Evening formulas since iron and calcium dramatically inhibit absorption of one another. Remember when you take a standard multivitamin, it is like taking all three of our formulas at the same time, so even when you divide our formulas into two servings instead of three, you will get better results.
Amounts of vitamins and minerals in Balanced Trio formulas are based on DRI (Dietary Reference Intakes). These reference intakes are regularly updated as the new scientific data becomes available. Some vitamin manufactures choose to include mega doses of certain vitamins and minerals. While this might be beneficial short term, we believe that for a long-term daily supplementation it is best not to overwhelm the body with excessive doses of vitamins and minerals. DV (Daily Values) used for nutrition labeling have been established in 1968. While for many vitamins and minerals they are close to current DRI, for some vitamins and minerals like vitamin A, vitamin B12 and biotin they are much higher than current recommendations.
