Why Have a Multivitamin Just for African Americans?

VITAMINS ARE ESSENTIAL BUT YOU CAN GET TOO MUCH

Vitamins and minerals serve a vital role in human function.  They form the pivotal links for a number of living processes. In short, we cannot live a healthy life without them.  The amount of vitamins we need has been the topic of much debate, and varies according to our diet and genetics.  Doctors learn in school about vitamin overdoses or “toxicities” and how to recognize them based on the patient's symptoms.  While nutritional companies fill the shelves with “mega” and “super” multivitamins that are packed with “more," Sequence Multivitamins provide African Americans with the right amount and type of vitamins needed for a more balanced body.

LOOKING AT OUR DIFFERENCES & TAKING A NEW DIRECTION.

Designing the best multivitamin for a community requires a close examination of the community and its "inner diversity."  All African Americans are not the same, yet developing a multivitamin for this diverse community is a great improvement over ignoring obvious and unmistakable differences in vitamin needs. 

SPEARHEADING THE MULTIVITAMIN INDUSTRY REVOLUTION

Just as cancer or heart disease can run in a family, there are an array of increased and decreased health risks associated with being a member of the African American family. Tailoring a multivitamin for African Americans that maximizes the benefit and minimizes the risk is a critically important mission.

Sequence Multivitamins were carefully designed by an African American physician to have more vitamin D, magnesium, potassium, and zinc due to published data that shows African Americans disproportionately have lower levels of these important substances.  Additionally, based on similar data results, we have decreased or eliminated substances that African Americans were likely better off not having. It is that simple...more of what African Americans' need and less (or none) of what they don't need.
