What is the complete list of vitamins and minerals in this supplement?
Vitamin A (Beta-Carotene) Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin that comes from two sources: preformed retinoids and provitamin A carotenoids. These retinoids are found in animal sources such as eggs, liver and dairy products like whole milk, while provitamin A carotenoids come from colorful plant foods like fruits and vegetables. Beta-carotene typically leads the pack in most efficiently making retinol, a pre-formed, active form of vitamin A. Probiotic-Fermented Vitamin C Found mostly in fruits and vegetables, this essential vitamin is known for its powerful antioxidant properties and for its general benefits for supporting a healthy response to stress.† Probiotic-Fermented Vitamin D3 Vitamin D plays a role in up to 2,000 genes and in every single tissue and cell of the body, yet 75 percent of American teens and adults don’t get enough. The immune-supporting vitamin D3 in this formulation is your body’s preferred form compared to vitamin D2. Natural Vitamin E A fat-soluble vitamin with many important processes in the body, this bioavailable, natural vitamin E also functions as an antioxidant. Soy-Free Vitamin K (MK-7) Vitamin K belongs to compounds called naphthoquinones and that includes vitamins K1, K2 and K3. Overall, vitamin K plays a strong role in bones and normal bone metabolism. Vitamin K2 also generally functions to ensure calcium gets to the right places in the body, such as the bones and teeth and not in the arteries or brain. Generally speaking, vitamin K2 also functions to activate at least three proteins in osteoblasts, the cells that generate bone, while inhibiting the breaking down of bone. Vitamin K2 occurs in several forms, but two primary types are menaquinone-4 (MK-4) and menaquinone-7 (MK-7). MK-7 is a preferred form of vitamin K2, and the vitamin K2 in MK-7 form in Ancient Multi Immune Support Formula is soy-free. Fermented and Coenzymated B vitamins B vitamins serve as essential helpers in the conversion of food to energy. And while they do not directly provide that energy, they do assist the process. In fact, the vitamin B complex includes seven water-soluble vitamins: thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B6, folate, vitamin B-12 and pantothenic acid. This well-rounded vitamin B complex offers individual health benefits but work together in several ways. B vitamins are also water-soluble, so they need to be replenished often (if not every day) through diet and/or supplementation. The vitamin B-12 in Ancient Multi Women’s 40+ is in the preferred methylcobalamin form, the form that’s typically the easiest for the body to use. Calcium An organic source of calcium derived from organic, U.S.-produced eggshells, this form of calcium is body-friendly. Iron Traditionally a blood-building mineral, iron used in supplements sometimes tends to trigger digestive distress. Luckily, this formula utilizes iron that’s gentle on the digestive tract. Iodine Our iodine is derived from an enzymatic process which bonds amino acids to minerals: chelation. Chelated minerals, such as our iodine, generally have easier absorption rates. Magnesium One of the most crucial minerals, magnesium is involved in more than 300 biochemical functions in the body, such as regulating heartbeat rhythms and helping neurotransmitter functions. Enzyme-Activated Zinc An essential mineral that’s second only to iron in its concentration in the body, zinc is often referred to as the “intelligence mineral.” Functionally, the liver also needs zinc in sufficient amounts so it can mobilize and release stored vitamin A into the bloodstream. Fermented Selenium An essential mineral to support thyroid health†, selenium is an important mineral in supporting women’s overall health. Manganese As an essential nutrient that’s usually tied to iron and other minerals, manganese plays a role in numerous chemical processes, including synthesis of nutrients like cholesterol, carbohydrates and proteins. Chromium A hard and brittle metal, chromium is a trace mineral needed by the body.

Organic Dong Quai Root Extract Traditionally referred to as “women’s ginseng,” this balancing, sacred herbal remedy used in TCM is generally viewed as an overall health supporter for women. It features ferulic acid, coumarin, various polysaccharides and more than 70 other powerful compounds that can offer positive effects. Organic Fo-Ti Root Extract A plant native to China and used in TCM, Fo-Ti is traditionally known as a longevity tonic treasured for its nourishing and strengthening effects. It features lectins, chrysophanic acid, chrysophanol, emodin and other components that are believed to give this herb its beneficial properties. Organic Lycium Berry Extract Also known as “wolfberry fruit” or goji berries, lycium berry has been used in TCM since about 200 B.C. Its benefits even appeared in “Shen Nong Ben Cao Jing,” an ancient book detailing the health and farming knowledge of the mythical Chinese emperor Shen Nong. Organic Chaste Tree Berry Extract This balancing herb is traditionally viewed as a female-friendly fruit and is generally used for supporting female health. Organic Schisandra Berry Extract An adaptogenic berry utilized in traditional Chinese herbalism for thousands of years, schisandra berry is a prized ingredient. Bovine Liver An ancient nutritional powerhouse, liver is one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet. Containing vitamins A, D, B12, B2, B3, B5, B6, omega-3s, iron, folate, zinc and more, this liver from pasture-raised New Zealand cattle is amazing. Organic Sage Leaf Extract Sage is a go-to ingredient in TCM — and it’s been that way for thousands of years. Traditional herbalists use sage in tea or even mouthwash to help stimulate wellness. Organic Chinese Yam Root Extract In China, it’s called Shan Yao, but people also refer to it as Chinese potato or cinnamon-vine. Generally speaking, Chinese yam extract may have “balancing” benefits for women. Organic Astragalus Root Extract Rooted in TCM, this adaptogenic perennial plant is also known as milkvetch root and Huang-qi and is hailed for its health benefits. Organic Chaga Mushroom Extract Generally, chaga mushrooms boast a high antioxidant value. Antioxidants function to fight free radicals. Organic Reishi Mushroom Extract Known as the “King of Mushrooms,” the reishi mushroom is an edible type of beneficial fungus cherished for thousands of years. Also known as Ling Zhi in Chinese, TCM utilizes reishi traditionally and generally to support the immune system. Bone Broth Our ancestors simmered bones, marrow, feet, skin, tendons and ligaments for days to create bone broth containing collagen, proline, glycine and glutamine. Our chicken bone broth comes from U.S. sources we trust, while our beef bone broth is derived from Europe. Wild Hake Roe One of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet, fish eggs are high in phospholipids. Fish eggs are an excellent source of protein and essential fatty acids and fat-soluble vitamins. The Omega 3s are often higher in roe than the fish itself. Our wild hake roe is sourced in New Zealand and is Marine Stewardship Council Certified.
What is TCM?
The Traditional Chinese Method (TCM) is a system of wellness that dates back more than 2,000 years and is still practiced today. It works on the belief that Qi (which loosely translates to “vital energy” and is pronounced “chee”) is essential for overall health. TCM principles adhere to the idea that proper Qi is needed to keep all systems in balance. This ties into the concept of yin and yang, defined as opposing but complementary energies. According to TCM, like Qi, yin and yang negatively affect your health when they’re out of balance. That being said, a primary goal of TCM involves balancing their equalizing relationship. One of the ways to do that involves using specific superfoods and herbs. TCM superfoods and superherbs aim to support the overall health of the systems of the body. TCM aims to create balance in the body as a whole to promote wellness and Qi. When the yin and yang aspects of Qi are harmonized and balanced out, a person typically experiences wellbeing.
How is TCM different than Ayurveda?
Both TCM and Ayurveda approach the body in a balancing way. They both address energy flow, circulation and balance in the body. For instance, that energy is referred to as “Qi” in TCM and “prana” in Ayurveda. While there is overlap in some of the botanicals used in both TCM and Ayurveda, each tradition also utilizes specific plants and foods. Ayurveda was born out of India, so often recommends traditional herbs and foods widely available in that region. TCM often focuses on botanicals and fungi more readily available in China. While TCM may utilize more animal products, Ayurveda does tend to recommend more dairy, like ghee, compared to TCM. In essence, TCM and Ayurveda are different ways to approach wellness and balance from different regions of the world.

Is supplementation really necessary?
For many Americans the diet consumed isn’t nutritionally adequate. In fact, approximately two-thirds of the standard U.S. diet is made up of unhealthy fats and refined sugars with low or no nutrient density — providing calories but not the amounts of vitamins and minerals needed, including vitamins A, B Complex, C, D, E and the minerals calcium, magnesium and zinc. More specifically, typical diets contain less than 80% of the RDA for calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, copper, and manganese—and the people who are most at risk for coming up short on those nutrients are adult women and teenage girls. Here’s the truth: If two-thirds of the standard U.S. diets are coming up short on certain nutrients, then the remaining one-third of the average diet may not be so great, either, and cannot possibly fully meet a person’s nutrient needs.One great way to get more vitamins and minerals into your diet is to include nutrient-dense, real foods. Unlike our Standard American Diet, nutrient-dense foods can deliver a vitamin-packed and mineral-packed wallop. In addition to a nutrient-dense diet, some opt to take a multivitamin to help cover their bases.
