Why Vitamins & More
Everybody needs a balance of vitamins, nutrients, and minerals
Your body is home to a constant symphony of chemical reactions, where vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and other nutrients each play a part. When this performance is in tune, the health outcomes are truly amazing. That’s why we all need an adequate supply of key vitamins, in forms that our bodies can recognize and use to their full potential.
Every nutrient and vitamin product we offer carries an important similarity: It’s formulated to help you maintain optimal health, from promoting a positive mood to supporting a robust immune response, to helping your cells produce enough energy to function fully.
How much is enough?
Take a look around you. Notice all the differences in each person’s age, size, weight, and lifestyle. All these factors contribute to our individual nutritional needs—and these are just some of the factors you can see! Because needs vary so widely from person to person, only you and your health practitioner can determine your personal nutritional requirements.
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)
CoQ10 is a vitamin-like antioxidant that’s critical for cells with high energy requirements, like those found in heart muscle.* Clinical trials on CoQ10 include doses that range from 30mg all the way up to 1200mg perday, but most reference the use of 50-200mg daily as effective.

Absorption and bioavailability matter
While it’s great to commit to a daily regimen of supplemental vitamins, keep in mind that not all vitamins are created equal. Your body’s ability to absorb and utilize the nutrients it receives is just as important as getting them in the first place.
Many nutrients must come in a certain form in order for the body to derive reliable benefits. This goes beyond the liquid, powder, or pill form to the biochemical structure of the nutrient itself.
Curcumin (derived from turmeric), for example, is an enormous molecule, and the digestive tract has a tough time delivering it to your bloodstream for use elsewhere in your body. With this in mind, we carefully chose a specific curcumin that is scientifically shown to be one of the most bioavailable forms available.
Potency is another consideration. Are the levels of nutrients in your vitamins high enough to offer real results, or do they just look good on the product label? Rest assured that Nordic Naturals takes potency seriously. We only offer products with ingredients that research has shown benefit health, in doses (and forms) that the body expects.
