Enerex Essential Vitamins Plus (Previously SONA Multi), 90 Tablets
A scientifically advanced multi vitamin and mineral. Any lifestyle today needs extra support to give your body the nutrients to run at its best. Essential Vitamins Plus (SONA) vitamins are balanced, the minerals chelated for maximum absorption, and we include digestive enzymes and a green food base providing antioxidants, EFAs, and amino acids in an easily digestible and absorbable soft tablet.
Essential Vitamins Plus Features
Get everything you need. Enerex SONA Multi is an advanced, scientifically balanced multivitamin supplement that offers nutrients the way that Nature intended. Its “SONA-recommended” formula provides 14 essential vitamins, 11 trace minerals and 4 nutritional digestive enzymes. They are in a base of whole green foods of organically grown Alfalfa Leaf, Green Barley Juice powder and Spirulina.
Enerex SONA Multi is designed to be taken in divided amounts at meals throughout the day (3 tablets daily) to get more absorption and benefit from it.
Knowing your ABCs
Vitamins in SONA Multi
All major vitamins in the SONA program are included in Enerex’s formula: Beta Carotene, Vitamin A, Vitamin D3, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Thiamine (Vitamin B1), Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Niacin (Vitamin B3), Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5), Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine), Biotin (Vitamin B7), Folate (Vitamin B9), and Vitamin B12 (Cyanocobalamin).
Minerals in SONA Multi
In nature, minerals are rarely found alone. They are bound as inorganic compounds in the soil and rock, or organically in living organisms. In Enerex’s SONA Multi, the minerals are combined with amino acids by a process known as chelation, which mimics the form in which most minerals are found in food. Amino acid chelated minerals can therefore be more efficiently absorbed from the digestive tract into the bloodstream than inorganic forms of minerals. Minerals from the SONA program are included in Enerex’s formula are Calcium, Magnesium, Iron, Zinc, Manganese, Copper, Iodine, Chromium, Selenium, Vanadium, Molybdenum.
Enzymes in Enerex SONA Multi
Better digestion of the supplement allows optimal amounts of nutrients to be used. Enerex adds plant-based digestive enzymes including Lipase and Cellulase that improve the passage of nutrients across the intestinal wall and into the blood stream, increasing absorption and intestinal health.
Green superfood base in Enerex SONA Multi
Organic Alfalfa Leaf Juice Powder, Organic Green Barley Juice Powder, Spirulina (Blue-Green Algae). These provide additional antioxidants, enzymes, chlorophyll, essential fatty acids, amino acids, and many other nutrients. Combined with the vitamins and minerals, these provide balanced, highly absorbable nutrition.
The Enerex Advantage
What’s in a name? SONA levels
The vitamin levels in Enerex’s SONA formulas are based on the Suggested Optimal Nutrient Allowances (SONAs) which were proposed to the US Senate over 30 years ago. The SONA'S are levels of nutrients found in a study of 13,500 men and women conducted by senior investigators Drs. Emanuel Cheraskin and W. M. Ringsdorf at the University of Alabama Medical School. The results of their $2 million study are contained in 49,000 pages found in 153 volumes, with results published in over 100 clinical papers during the 1970s and 1980s. They examined which essential nutrients were taken/eaten daily, and measured signs and symptoms of disease.
Through the effort of this 15 year study, it is now possible to extrapolate suggested optimum daily nutrient allowances or SONAs of vitamins and minerals that are actually required by the body. Although you may feel that this study is dated, it is more advanced than the conventional recommendations currently offered by government RDIs and dietitians.
In the study, the healthiest individuals – those with the least clinical signs and symptoms of illness or degeneration – took supplements and ate a diet richer in essential nutrients relative to calories than those with more disease symptoms. The ideal daily intake of each essential nutrient was taken to be that level consumed by disease-free people.
What about RDAs and RDIs?
The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) or Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) is said to be “the average daily dietary intake level that is sufficient to meet the nutrient requirements.” However, these have been found to be the minimum amount required to prevent deficiency symptoms in healthy adults. According to recent examination, these are inadequate optimum health, especially during stress, growth, pregnancy, lactation, strenuous activity, healing from disease and injury, and advancing age.
Why does Enerex offer a tablet and not a capsule?
Although some manufacturers recommend a capsule for better absorption, after careful consideration of all the factors, Enerex SONA MULTI is offered in soft tablet form rather than in gelatin capsules or hard tablets. Tablets can be made more stable and are not affected by high temperatures and humidity, which can cause gelatin capsules to leak. Also, gelatin capsules have a higher moisture content that can adversely affect formula stability. Some methods of manufacturing tablets can cause the temperature of ingredients to rise to a level that can destroy enzymes and some vitamins.
All the advanced research that has gone into producing Enerex SONA Multi’s formula would be wasted if the sensitive ingredients were destroyed during manufacturing. To ensure that nutrients are given maximum protection, tablets are made using a state-of-the-art process known as high-density Chilsonation.
Enerex SONA Multi’s raw materials are placed into the Chilsonator and emerge as dense pellets. The pellets are milled into a powder that is 3 to 4 times denser than the original material, allowing smaller easier-to-swallow tablets without a reduction in potency. The Chilsonator also results in better dispersion of the tablet’s nutrients in the body, increasing bioavailability compared to other tablets. Wet granulation, the industry standard for preparing materials for tablets and capsules, requires alcohol solvents and high temperature drying. Chilsonation eliminates this destructive process.
Adults: Take 1 Enerex SONA Multi - Original tablet 3 times daily with meals or as directed by a health care practitioner.
