DETAILED INFORMATION FAQs RESEARCH INGREDIENTS

Detailed Information

Endurance Multi-V is unlike any other multivitamin available. This unparalleled formulation contains a number of special ingredients (besides vitamins and minerals) that address the unique requirements of endurance athletes. In addition to having the highest-quality, most bio-available vitamins and chelated minerals available, this special endurance formula delivers clinically effective doses of digestive enzymes that improve carbohydrate utilization and time to exhaustion, Green Tea for improved endurance capacity and fat utilization, and Zinc for enhanced muscle recovery.

It’s estimated that 30-50% of endurance athletes have depleted iron levels. When iron levels are low, less oxygen is delivered to the muscles and aerobic capacity declines. To ensure peak performance, MultiV is formulated with a highly bioavailable Iron Amino Acid Chelate that’s also gentle on the stomach.

INCREASES TIME TO EXHAUSTION BY 43%

Endurance MultiV is the only multivitamin that contains a patented enzyme blend that’s been clinically proven to improve carbohydrate utilization and increase time to exhaustion by 43%. You won’t find this in any other endurance products. Clinical studies on elite cyclists demonstrated how these enzymes break down multi-chain carbohydrates into simple glucose. What’s really unique about these enzymes is that even with this fast breakdown of carbohydrates, insulin sensitivity is blunted. With no insulin spike, your blood sugar remains elevated for many hours so it can fuel working muscles and improve performance.

SUPERIOR ANTIOXIDANT PROTECTION

The antioxidant profile in Endurance MultiV is unmatched. ORAC-Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity testing is recognized as the “Gold Standard” for measuring antioxidant protection against oxidative damage. This new testing method allows nutrients to be qualified in their antioxidant capacity with a number. Endurance MultiV, which has the highest possible ORAC score, is one of the first products to utilize this important technology to ensure superior antioxidant protection. Endurance MultiV contains an antioxidant support blend that includes Bioflavanoids, Turmeric extract, Grape Seed extract and Alpha Lipoic Acid. These antioxidants are widely considered to be the best antioxidants available. This is one of the many ways Endurance MultiV helps protect endurance athletes from the stresses and demands of everyday training and racing.

FAQs

How does the new MultiV formula compare to the previous version?

The new formula has five new upgrades:

  1. The new MultiV contains a new and more potent enzyme blend that also has Bromelain which aids in the digestion of proteins and reduces systemic inflammation.
  2. The ORAC Antioxidant blend has been increased to 550mg and now has Grape Seed Extract.
  3. 500IU of Vitamin D have been added to the new formula. Vitamin D promotes calcium absorption and mineralization of bones. Vitamin D also aids in immune function. A complete article on the benefits of Vitamin D for endurance athletes can be found here.
  4. 45mcg of Vitamin K2 have also been added to the new formula.. Vitamin K2 helps promote healthy bone mineralization, improves the vascular system and also improves heart function.
  5. It is important to note that Vitamin K2 is not the same as vitamin K1. Where vitamin K1 comes from plants and is very difficult to absorb, vitamin K2 is naturally made with bacteria and has far superior absorption.
  6. The new formula does not have any artificial colors. The new tablet has an all-natural aqueous clear coat.
  7. The new formula does not contain any fish oil, for a number of reasons. Including a full dose (1,000mg) of fish oil is not possible in tablet form. And even a small amount creates an off-note fish taste that is no longer found in the new formula. This new formula has a very pleasant vanilla flavor to the tablet.

What is Multi-V?

Multi-V is a new Multi-Nutrient formula that provides endurance athletes with endurance specific vitamins, minerals and nutrients needed for endurance exercise training and racing. This formula is unique in that it’s the first with ingredients clinically proven to enhance endurance. Multi-V utilizes the latest clinical research on endurance nutrition and input from some of the best endurance athletes in the world.

What are the benefits of using Multi-V daily?

The benefits of Multi-V are:

  • Improved Performance
  • Unmatched Antioxidant Protection
  • Assurance that you are not deficient in any critical nutrients
  • Full spectrum of Vitamins and Minerals
  • Reduction in sickness caused by over-training
  • Most bio-available sources of Nutrients

What’s the endurance benefit of the enzymes in Multi-V?

Multi-V uses a specific enzyme blend that is backed up by clinical studies on endurance athletes. Clinical studies on elite cyclists showed this enzyme blend breaks down multi-chain carbohydrates into simple glucose. This is important for endurance athletes because glucose is readily accessible and useable for working muscles. What’s really unique about this enzyme blend is that even with this fast breakdown of carbohydrates, there is no affect on insulin. This is important because it doesn’t create an insulin spike. Blood glucose remains elevated for many hours. A summary of the Clinical Study is found below:

  • Significant increase in blood glucose levels during high intensity exercise by 23%
  • Sustained increase in blood glucose levels for 5 hours
  • Significant decrease in the accumulation of blood lactate by 58% average
  • Significant increase in time to exhaustion by 43%
  • Decreased rate of perceived exertion (RPE).

A clinical trial was performed on the patented enzyme system CARBOGEN from Triarco Industries, Inc. at the University of Dayton Human Performance Lab, Dayton, OH by Janine T. Baer, Ph.D., RD, Associate Professor of Health and Sport Science. The purpose of the study was to investigate the effect of 160 mg of Carbogen® consumed with a meal replacement bar on exercise performance during 60 min of high intensity cycling.

After an overnight 12-hr fast 5 trained, male cyclists (mean VO2 max 70 ml/kg/min) performed two 60-min cycling bouts at 80% VO2 max followed by a sprint at 100% VO2 max. Subjects consumed a meal replacement bar plus either 160 mg Carbogen ? or 160 mg placebo 1 hour prior to each cycling bout. Blood glucose and lactate were determined at: fasting, 1 hr-post feeding, at 30 and 60 minutes of exercise and post-sprint. Glucose levels were consistently higher when Carbogen® was used, with the values after 60-min of exercise significantly higher than the placebo (Carbogen® 73.8+3.6 mg/dl vs. placebo 58.4+ 11.9mg/dl, P<.05) (Graph 1). Lactate values were also consistently lower with the values after 30 min of exercise significantly lower than the placebo (Carbogen® 1.2 + .05 vs. placebo 3.3+0.23, P<.05) (Graph 2). Subjects were able to maintain a 100% VO2 max workload significantly longer with Carbogen® vs. placebo (6.3+3.4 min vs.4.4+ 2.9 min, p<0.001) (Graph 3).Additionally, subjects reported a lower rate of perceived exertion during the exercise trial with Carbogen® (mean RPE 12 + 1.0) vs. placebo (mean RPE 13 + 1.0).

What will Gingko Biloba do for me?

The levels of Gingko Biloba in Multi-V have been clinically shown to improve circulation.

What are Chelated Minerals and are they better?

Chelatation is a patented process that creates chemical bonds with nutrients like chromium, iron and magnesium. This process makes minerals highly bioavailable. This is important because it ensures the nutrient is bonded with the amino acid chelate is easily absorbed and digested.

What is Iron Amino Acid Chelate and how is that better than other Iron sources?

Amino Acid Chelates form a highly stable bio-available bond. Unlike Iron as Ferrous Fumarate, Iron AAC does not compete for the binding sites of some minerals like Calcium. In addition, there are no toxicity issues. This Iron used in Multi-V is highly bio-available and will not diminish your calcium or other minerals. It’s also very safe.

There are also vitamins, minerals and antioxidants in Ultragen and EFS. Do I still need the Multi-V?

The Multi-V is designed to work synergistically with the other First Endurance products. The First Endurance research team reviewed every ingredient in the First Endurance product line to assure you are getting the levels of nutrients you need for endurance training without worrying about the risk of over-dosing with any ingredient. In addition, Multi-V also works great as a stand-alone Multi-Vitamin for your every day needs.

Why isn’t there Calcium in Multi-V?

Our athletes told us that they did not want to consume more than 3 tablets in their Multi-Vitamin. The addition of Calcium to this formula would have required a 4th tablet to the daily dose. In addition, one serving of Ultragen contains 500mg Calcium and one serving of EFS contains 100mg calcium. On a typical training day athletes who use EFS and Ultragen will consume between 600mg (60% RDA) and 900mg(90% RDA) of Calcium from Ultragen and EFS.

Should I use Multi-V in my off training months? Can I use it every day?

Yes. The Multi-V is designed to be your daily Multi-Vitamin and should be used every day all year long.

What types of athletes should be taking Multi-V?

Any athlete that does endurance exercise and training will benefit from Multi-V. The nutrients in Multi-V have been shown in clinical studies to effectively protect endurance athletes from the stresses of exercise and to improve endurance performance.

What is ORAC and why is this good for me?

ORAC=Oxygen Reactive Absorbancy Capacity. ORAC is a quantitative measure of an antioxidants ability to absorb oxidative damage There is clinical data supporting this methodology. ORAC testing is considered the gold standard for measuring antioxidant capacity. This new FDA-approved method of testing antioxidants will become common in the future. Multi-V is one of the first products to use this testing method. This ensures you have antioxidant protection and quality that is second to none. Antioxidants generally range in their ORAC score from 50 to 9,000. An ORAC score of 8,000 found in the Multi-V provides the level of oxidative protection endurance athletes need to protect them from the stresses and demands of every day training.

Should I take Multi-V on days I’m not training?

Yes. The Multi-V is designed to be taken every day, just like any other multi-vitamin.

When should I take Multi-V?

In order to maximize carbohydrate utilization, it’s best to take Multi-V one to two hours before training or racing with your pre-exercise meal. Multi-V can be taken with breakfast, lunch or dinner, depending when you’re exercising.

Should I split up the 3 tablet dose into 3 separate meals a day, or should I take this all at once?

It’s important to take all three tablets all at once in order to get the required dosage of Cargoben, the patented enzyme blend in Multi-V that maximizes carbohydrate utilization.

How many servings are in a container of Multi-V?

There are 30 servings per container.

Endurance Multi-VTM is the first multi-nutrient vitamin that’s clinically proven to enhance endurance. The nutrients in Multi-V have been shown to effectively protect athletes from the stresses of exercise and to improve endurance. Multi-V is the only multivitamin that contains Carbogen®, a patented enzyme blend that has been shown in clinical studies to improve carbohydrate utilization, and significantly increase time to exhaustion. (5)The vitamin and mineral content of Multi-V was designed to offer the nutrients necessary to address the needs of endurance athletes without “dressing up” the label by loading the formula with mega-doses. This formula works as a stand alone multivitamin as well as synergistically with the vitamins and minerals found in other First Endurance products. The researchers at First Endurance paid close attention to the levels of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals to assure athletes using Ultragen, EFS, Optygen and Multi-V are receiving the ideal levels of all key nutrients in order to maximize training.

Though Multi-V is a multi-faceted formula it components can be broken down into two major categories. A) Acute Performance Enhancement and B) Multi-Nutrient protection. Both categories need to be taken into consideration when using Multi-V.

Acute Performance Enhancement

Carbogen-Protected by US Patent# 5,817,350

Carbogen is the patented enzyme blend in Multi-V. Clinical studies on elite cyclists showed Carbogen breaks down multi-chain carbohydrates into simple glucose. This is important for endurance athletes because glucose is readily accessible and useable for working muscles. What’s really unique about Carbogen is that even with this fast breakdown of carbohydrates, there is little effect on insulin. This is important because it doesn’t create an insulin spike, rather blood glucose remains elevated for many hours.

In order to get this performance enhancement, Multi-V needs to be taken with a pre-exercise meal or snack 60-90 minutes prior to exercise. As long as the meal or snack consists of complex or varied carbohydrates and other nutrients mixed in, Multi-V can work to break that energy into a readily usable form. Energy bars, a sandwich, salads and yogurt all work nicely. If you don’t take Multi-V with a pre-exercise meal, the performance benefits will not be experienced. On days you aren’t exercising, athletes should take Multi-V with a meal. (5)

Year Round Multi-Nutrient Protection

Multi-V is unlike any other multivitamin available. This unparalleled formulation contains a number of special ingredients (besides vitamins and minerals) that address the unique requirements of endurance athletes. In addition to having the highest quality, most bio-available vitamins and chelated minerals, this special endurance formula delivers clinically effective doses of enzymes, iron, green tea, ginkgo biloba and omega-3 fatty acids. Multi-V is formulated with Ferrochel Iron- a highly bio-available source of iron, which is non-toxic and does not affect the absorption of minerals like other iron sources do.

The antioxidant profile in Multi-V is unequaled. Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) testing is recognized as the “gold standard” for measuring antioxidant protection against oxidative damage. Multi-V is one of the first products to utilize this important technology to ensure superior antioxidant protection. This new testing method allows nutrients to be qualified in their antioxidant capacity with a number. Multi-V contains some of the highest tested nutrients found, with ORAC values of 8,000 units or more, and guarantees this with thorough analytical tests (3). In addition, Multi-V contains an antioxidant support blend that includes bioflavanoids, turmeric extract, grape seed extract and alpha lipoic acid. These antioxidants are widely considered to be the best antioxidants available. This is one of the many ways Multi-V helps protect endurance athletes from the stresses and demands of everyday training and racing.

The nutrients at the levels found in Multi-V offer protection from suppressed immune systems and from the potential viruses and sickness frequently seen in both the winter months and through heavy training cycles. Without question, Multi-V is a product that should be used consistently 12 months of the year. Through consistent use athletes will greatly reduce their incidence of sickness and will help stimulate a strong immune system (6,7,8,9,10).
