I recently switched my daily multi-vitamin, from a brand that I’ve used for some time but was never completely happy with. It was a blend that was formulated for athletes so it claimed to provide all the necessary vitamins and minerals needed to properly support an athletic lifestyle, and I was just thought it was enough.
That was, until I tried something different. I first read about FTM’s SportMulti vitamin in Peloton Magazine, and was immediately drawn in due to the fact that FTM produced their supplements to cGMP standards. On the surface this might not seem like much, but its a huge deal in the fact that a cGMP facility ensures contamination-free supplements through a total quality policy. That means for athletes, they don’t need to worry about a possible positive test from a tainted/contaminated supplement.
I think FTM does a great job of explaining the SportMulti:
SportMulti® is a multivitamin and mineral supplement for athletes. We made SportMulti® because we believe that every athlete should take a multivitamin and mineral supplement designed to address the unique needs of our bodies under the added stresses of training and competition. A high potency and complete multivitamin and mineral supplement in its most bioavailable form should be the foundation of an athlete’s nutrition program to help reach optimum performance and maintain overall good health. For complete information visit www.sportmulti.com.
We created SportMulti® as our first FTM Brand® supplement product for two main reasons. First, we believe that the right multivitamin and mineral supplement should be at the core of every athlete’s nutrition plan. If you could only take one supplement, it should be a multivitamin and mineral complex as long as it’s the right one. That leads to our second reason. We wanted to offer a simple but yet effective multivitamin and mineral complex that was complete, high potency, naturally sourced, and used the most bioavailable forms of nutrients. Nothing else should be added to ensure you get the most powerful multivitamin-mineral blend per capsules. Other nutrients, if needed, should be obtained from food sources or other products. To be effective, a good supplement should only contain vitamins or minerals, period. Simple but hard to find on the market today, until SportMulti®.
I was excited to start using the SportMulti. The first thing I noticed is that they were much easier on my stomach; in fact, there was little to no stomach issues when taking them with breakfast. My previous multi, even taken with a meal, always made for some level of stomach discomfort. Immediately I was already more satisfied with SportMulti, but a true evaluation takes time. Using them is simple: take 3 each morning, and on days you train take 3 more in the evening with dinner. It’s that simple.
I must say that after using a bottle, I feel stronger and healthier. It’s hard to quantify the effects of a good multi-vitamin but I think having a taken another brand for a few years and noticing a difference after a month of taking SportMulti speaks volumes. So maybe you think your current multi is good enough, but you should be wondering: how much better could it be?
