Now With Vitamin D and K2, Endurance Multi-V is the first multinutrient 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's been shown in clinical studies to improve carbohydrate utilization and increase time to exhaustion significantly. 2012 New and Improved Now With Vitamin D and K2

THERE'S NOTHING ELSE LIKE IT
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 Enzymes, Iron, Green Tea, Ginkgo Biloba and Omega-3 Fatty Acids. Multi-V is also formulated with Ferrochel Iron- a highly bioavailable source of Iron which is non-toxic and does not affect the absorption of minerals, like other Iron sources do.
PATENTED ENZYME BLEND
Multi-V is the only multivitamin that contains a patented enzyme blend called Carbogen. You won't find Carbogen in any other endurance products. First Endurance has the sole license for Carbogen in the endurance market. 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 no affect on insulin. With no insulin spike, your blood sugar remains elevated for many hours so it can fuel working muscles and improve performance. A summary of the Clinical Study is found below:
23% increase in blood glucose levels during high intensity exercise
Sustained increase in blood glucose levels for 5 hours
Significant decrease in the accumulation of blood lactate (58% average)
43% increase in time to exhaustion
Decreased rate of perceived exertion (RPE).
ANTIOXIDANT PROTECTION THAT'S SECOND TO NONE
The antioxidant profile in Multi-V is also unequaled. ORAC-Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity 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 analytical tests. 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.
