Dr. Wiancek's New Formulated Multiple Vitamin

Dr. Wiancek's newly formulated multiple vitamin

Why has Dr. Wiancek decided to reformulate her multiple vitamin?
Now adding methlyfolate to the vitamin, because many people do not absorb regular folic acid, learn more about methylation here. Also, with more vitamin K2 to prevent osteoporosis, bruising and overall bone health. Many of my patients are taking 5 or 6 bottles of different vitamins and minerals a day and it is costing them a fortune. So I decided to make it easy and cost effective for people. All they would need is provided in my multiple vitamins at a cost of $45.00 a month. Purchase in stores or online.

What does your multiple vitamin include?

It includes the following:
1,000 mg of calcium citrate the most absorbable calcium available to help prevent osteoporosis.
2000 IU of Vitamin D3 to prevent osteoporosis.
400 IU of Vitamin E which is a natural blood thinner, protects us from heart disease and all kinds of cancers.
1,000 mg of Vitamin C which protects us from getting the common cold because of it’s anti-viral effects.
15,000 IU of Vitamin A which protects us from all kinds of cancer and helps keep our skin healthy.
100 mcg Selenium which is also an antioxidant which protects us from all kinds of cancers including prostate cancer.
30 mg of Zinc which also protects us from colds and all kinds of cancers including prostate cancer.
50 mg of all the B Vitamins. These are water soluble vitamins which need to be replenished on a daily basis. We need them during times of stress that is why they are called our stress vitamins.
Other minerals that are needed to prevent osteoporosis which are included in the multiple vitamin are:

Other minerals included in the multiple include:

Vitamin K2 150 mcg
Vitamin B12 100 mcg
Biotin 300 mcg
Pantothenic acid 70 mg
Magnesium citrate 500 mg
Copper 1 mg
Manganese 15 mg
Chromium 100 mcg
Potassium 50 mg
Boron 2 mg
Molybdenum 50 mcg
Vanadium 20 mcg
Choline 70 mg
Inositol 70 mg
Methylfolate 800 mcg

Why is there no iron in this multiple vitamin?
Why a little may be good more is definitely not better when it comes to your heart. A study comparing coronary heart disease patients with healthy, age matched controls, found women older than 60 had a 3.5 fold increase in CHD risk for every 50 mg of iron consumed per month over 250 mg.

 The lesson here is to take iron supplements only when you need them.

One a day for Women has 27 mg of iron in each tablet. That amounts to an 810 mg of iron load every month, raising a consumer’s risk for CHD 40 fold. Several studies have conversely confirmed the cardiovascular benefits of iron depletion through blood donation, reducing the risk of an acute heart attack as much as 88 percent in middle aged male donors.
