At worst, vitamin and mineral supplementation acts as insurance against short and long-term dietary lapses, and guesswork in nutrient intake, including the ability to define the optimal diet. At best, using valid science to increase the nutrient content of available and typical food intakes may yield optimal functioning for an extended period, as compared to a non-supplemented state.

If I switch from the ActiveMV to the VegetarianMV, will I be missing out on anything?

Answer: You should not miss out on anything you need provided you vary the foods in your lacto-ovo diet.  One vegetarian multi will fill your needs regardless of your activity level (as opposed to two ActiveMVs if you're very active).  Your change to a more plant-based diet will provide you with more of the nutrients you need; therefore they do not need to be added (as they are in the ActiveMV). The ones you will likely get less of will be included in the VegetarianMV formula. Additionally, the VegetarianMV does have the same time release properties as the ActiveMV. Be sure to keep an eye on your calcium intake and supplement as needed. 


VegetarianMV™ Formula

The VegetarianMV formula is designed for those who avoid animal products or who eat a diet high in carbohydrates and/or who want nutrients not supplied from animal forms.

Rationale
The nutrients typically lacking in vegetarian or high carbohydrate diets such as zinc, iron and B12 are boosted in this formula. ,  Folic acid is reduced in this formula because the fortification of folic acid in the food supply has resulted in a much greater intake in the US. Calcium is minimal in this formula to maximize the absorption of iron. The dotFIT SuperCalcium+ formula is available and contains much larger amounts of calcium than could reasonably fit in a multivitamin pill for those who lack it in their diets.

Typical Use
•    For any male over 18 or non-pregnant female over 18 who is a vegetarian or who prefers a diet very high in carbohydrates
•    One tablet per day before or after main meal with your favorite beverage
