When working solo, resveratrol is a powerful plant bioactive that supports heart, brain, and immune health.* Its rapid metabolism rates make it difficult for the body to utilize, however—which is where its bio-enhancer “buddy” piperine comes in.
When resveratrol and piperine team up (like in our multi formula), resveratrol’s bioavailability is increased66, and the dynamic duo becomes a botanical longevity powerhouse pairing that can combat oxidative stress, support cellular resilience, and protect mitochondrial health.*
Wondering which plants we sourced these ingredients from? We’ve got you covered. Ferira shares, “We hand-picked each botanical. Our resveratrol comes from Japanese knotweed (Polygonum cuspidatum), while piperine is the MVP phytonutrient in our black pepper fruit extract (Piper nigrum).”
Lutein + zeaxanthin
Naturally derived from premium marigolds (as in the flower, Tagetes erecta), these two macular carotenoids promote cellular resilience and longevity, in part by reducing oxidative stress77 (along with other reactive radicals).* Bonus: Lutein and zeaxanthin also support eye health by maintaining optimal visual function, which is useful for everyone but definitely comes in handy as you age.*
Research suggests maintaining lycopene levels88 as we age could have positive effects on our bone, skin, lung, and digestive health.* With its antioxidative, anti-inflammatory, and anti-proliferative properties, this carotenoid packs a serious punch when it comes to longevity.* Lycopene’s role as a lipophilic antioxidant allows it to combat oxidative stress, modulate signaling pathways, and even suppress cell progression and proliferation.*
Ferira adds, “Lycopene is an eager scavenger of free radicals, an action that has global significance in the body, across multiple organ systems, every day. And in mbg’s multi, our lycopene is extracted naturally and with care from red tomatoes (Lycopersicon esculentum).”*
The final word on aging well.
When discussing daily nutritional support for vitality as we age, a multi is a must.* If you want to take your longevity game a step further, we recommend adding bioactive botanicals to your supplementation routine.* Or take a multi that is thoughtful and innovative enough to leverage this kind of combination technology (i.e., nutrients plus plant bioactives) for you. mindbodygreen’s ultimate multivitamin+ is packed with powerful phytonutrients, so you can have potent plant-powered support throughout your life.*
