Empowering Extraordinary Health
Garden of Life's mission is to empower extraordinary health. To fulfill that mission, we formulate natural and effective whole food products that promote good health.
Poten-Zyme Process: Whole Food Nutrition
We believe that whole food nutrition is better for the body. That's why we've created the proprietary Poten-Zyme fermentation process. This advanced fermentation process uses living probiotic organisms and their enzymes to pre-digest nutrients into food forms that your body can easily assimilate. The resulting Living Nutrients are complexes of vitamins and minerals that have been potentiated by the process and are in body-friendly form. Living Nutrients contain the necessary cofactors required for absorption and assimilation, including enzymes, amino acids, antioxidants, probiotics, prebiotics and organic acids.
Living Nutrients: Better for the Body
Living Nutrients are better for your body because they are more like food than isolated vitamins as they are from a whole food source. Living Nutrients are body friendly, containing bioactive components that the body requires. The Poten-Zyme process makes them easy on the stomach and more body-ready than less expensive isolated vitamins and minerals.
Antioxidant-Rich² Multiple with Complete Whole Food Nutrition
Living Multi Optimal Formula is a comprehensive nutrition supplement which provides vitamins, minerals, and nutrients in body-ready whole food form. Living Multi is a natural supermarket of 73 whole food concentrates in a unique blend of antioxidant-rich² fruits and vegetables, plus vitamins and minerals in the form of Living Nutrients. These Living Nutrients are created using our exclusive and proprietary Poten-Zyme fermentation process. Living Nutrients are complexes of vitamins and minerals that have been made more body-ready by probiotic microorganisms and their enzymes. As a result, these nutrients are easily digested and assimilated.

Night And Day Difference
Night And Day Difference
My digestive system is unable to tolerate any other multi-vitamin supplements, but because this product is in such a natural, body-ready form, I have no problems digesting it at all... which for me is a miracle. I suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome, and have noticed a DRAMATIC difference in my energy levels and my general health when I take this supplement. At one point I stopped taking it for a while, and as a result my health went downhill quickly. Later on I started taking it again, the difference was like night and day. So, although my budget is tight, I will sacrifice just about anything in order to be able to afford this... it has made such a huge difference to my health and given me some of my life back!!!
Good but not gluten free.

A good supplement but wish it was gluten free.
Good. my replacement for megafood lifestyles
Posted by Reviewer2141997 on Feb 02, 2013
Since Megafood discontinued their best supplement this is a good replacement. Food formed companies need to understand that herbs like Saw Palmetto don't belong in a multi. (Talking about Megafood multi for men) Educate yourself on tonic versus medicinal.
Excellent quality food sourced nutrients

My sweetie swears by this vitamin. When he takes just a couple a day (rather than 3 with each meal as suggested) he finds that his energy and all-around feeling of wellness are much better. I can't take them because I find them hard to swallow, too dry and large for me. The ingredients are amazing, a blend of nutrients in their whole food state, nothing synthetic here. The antioxidants are from fruits and veggies, tonic mushrooms and sea veggies add super benefits you may not get in your regular diet. NOTE that coffee extract and green tea are part of the blend, so depending on your situation these could either be energy-enhancing or too stimulating. Play with the dose and build it up, don't try 9 the first day for instance. If you have allergies/sensitivities or complicated health issues read labels carefully because in a comprehensive blend like this you may find something tucked in there that you shouldn't be taking. Remember to always check with your own doctor to make sure that a supplement is right for you and won't interfere with other things you are taking, etc. Here's to your radiant wellness! :)

Food based vitamins are the best. They do not aggravate Crohn's disease. Better absorption and can be taken on an empty stomach.
