Sequence Multivitamin & Minerals for African Americans
Sequence Multivitamin & Minerals are specially formulated to match the needs of both younger and older African American men and women. These four formulas are uniquely designed to best address the vitamin and mineral needs based on hereditary patterns and health risks. Sequence Multivitamins are fortified with more Vitamin D, a vitamin commonly found to be deficient in African Americans, as well as magnesium and potassium for a healthy heart and blood pressure. The added zinc promotes immune health. Sequence has also formulated a multivitamin for African Americans over 50 to support mental focus and a healthy prostate. Certain substances were strategically excluded like Vitamin E, vitamin K, and selenium due to research showing a potentially harmful effect in some African Americans.
MAXIMIZING YOUR HEALTH
VITAMIN D FORTIFIED
Sufficient vitamin D levels has been shown to lower the risk of prostate and colon cancer, as well as give better control of high blood pressure and diabetes.
MORE VITAMIN C
Adequate vitamin C levels is associated with better heart health and can help protect against environmental toxins.
BOOST YOUR MAGNESIUM
Greater than 90% of African Americans are magnesium deficient and this deficiency has been linked to memory loss, decreased muscle strength, diabetes, high blood pressure, and some types of cancer. Sequence Multivitamins for older men has added magnesium to address this need.
VITAMIN K IS LEFT OUT
Vitamin K is critical for normal blood clotting but African Americans have an increased risk for blood clots after surgery and associated with strokes and heart attacks, therefore additional vitamin K would not be helpful.
