Feel Multivitamin:
what’s the difference?

In Feel Multivitamin
Vitamin B3
✅ Form we use: Natural Nicotinamide

Why: has fewer side effects and is more similar to NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) into which any form of vitamin B converts when inside the body.
VS
Regular Multivitamin
Vitamin B3
❌ They use: Niacin – an oxidised form of nicotine

Why not: can cause liver problems, stomach ulcers, muscle damage and affect heart health as well as cause unpleasant side-effects as dizziness, skin flushing, nausea and insomnia. Has lower bio-availability.
In Feel Multivitamin
Vitamin B12
✅ Form we use: Methylcobalamin

Why: it’s a naturally occurring form that has a higher retention rate and provides body with energy; Has the highest bio-availability (3x that of cyanocobalamin).
VS
Regular Multivitamin
Vitamin B12
❌ They use: Synthetic Cyanocobalamin

Why not: it's synthetic and isn't found in nature, is excreted faster and isn't stored effectively in tissues. It contains a molecule of cyanide and has to be transformed into Methylcobalamin before it can be used by the body. On top of this it has a wide variety of side-effects.
In Feel Multivitamin
Vitamin D
✅ Form we use: Natural D3 from lichen

Why: it’s ethically sourced and 100% vegan. Is necessary for metabolising calcium and promoting a variety of processes in the body including supporting your immune function.
VS
Regular Multivitamin
Vitamin D
❌ They use: Ergocalciferol (D2) from yeast or Cholecalciferol (D3) from lanolin.

Why not: vitamin D2 is less absorbent than D3, and Lanolin is derived from sheep’s wool: most of the times a rather unethical process.
In Feel Multivitamin
Vitamin E
✅ Form we use: Natural Succinate

Why: it comes from plants and leads to higher alpha-tocopherol levels in the body by improving retention. Has highest bio-availability.
VS
Regular Multivitamin
Vitamin E
❌ They use: Synthetic DL-Alpha Tocopherol Acetate

Why not: a synthetic form which is made from petrochemicals. Has low bio-availability and retention rate.
In Feel Multivitamin
Vitamin K
✅ Form we use: MK7 - Menaquinone with 7 chains which closely resembles the form present in our bodies

Why: has the highest bio-availability with no side-effects and effectively increases the tissue levels of menaquinone in the body.
VS
Regular Multivitamin
Vitamin K
❌ They use: K1 (Phylloquinone) and K2 (Menaquinone)

Why not: both have low bio-availability; Menaquinone is quite different from the form present in our bodies and Phylloquinone’s bioavailability score is even worse at 20% - liver and organs filter out almost all of this nutrient before they can be used. Side-effects may include dizziness, sweating and shortness of breath.
In Feel Multivitamin
Folic Acid
✅ Form we use: Natural Methyl Folate

Why: it’s closest to the natural form of B9 and does not require the MTHFR gene activation. It’s digested with incredible bioavailability.
VS
Regular Multivitamin
Folic Acid
❌ They use: Synthetic Folic Acid

Why not: it requires MTHFR gene activation to be absorbed - up to 25% of people don't have this gene, so to many this form is useless. Oxidative stress and other digestive problems can occur due to absorption issues.
In Feel Multivitamin
Copper
✅ Form we use: Bisglycinate

Why: it’s bonded to a glycerine substrate leading to highest bio-availability, as it absorbs directly into the bloodstream.
VS
Regular Multivitamin
Copper
❌ They use: Copper Citrate and Sulphate

Why not: Citrate has bio-availability issues, absorption is heavily dependent on the gut linings condition. Sulphate is an actual toxin and shouldn't be ingested in general. Kidney failure and intoxication can occur with as little as 1 gram of copper sulphate.
In Feel Multivitamin
Selenium
✅ Form we use: Natural Selenomethionine

Why: it’s closest to the naturally present form and has the highest bio-availability and fewest side-effects.
VS
Regular Multivitamin
Selenium
❌ They use: Synthetic Sodium Selenate & Selenite

Why not: both are inorganic forms produced using synthetic chemicals and are hard for the body to process (Sodium Selenite is commonly used in glass production and can harm cellular structures).
In Feel Multivitamin
Magnesium
✅ Form we use: Magnesium Citrate

Why: uses citric acid as a base for essential minerals leading to optimal absorption rates and safety.
VS
Regular Multivitamin
Magnesium
❌ They use: Magnesium Oxide or Chloride

Why not: Oxide isn't soluble in water and only up to 43% soluble in stomach acid, it can even be fatal upon contact with lungs. Chloride commonly causes nausea and an upset stomach.
In Feel Multivitamin
Iron
✅ Form we use: Bisclycinate

Why: it belongs to a new class of nutrients that consist of essential minerals that have been bonded to glycine with citric acid, Bisglycinate demonstrates highest levels of bio-availability and safety.
VS
Regular Multivitamin
Iron
❌ They use: Fumarate, Sulphate and Gluconate

Why not: Fumarate is potentially harmful to people who have Crohn’s disease and other digestive conditions, Sulphate can cause oxidative damage and Gluconate contains very little elemental iron, hence the low bio-availability.
In Feel Multivitamin
Calcium
✅ Form we use: Calcium Citrate

Why: it’s the easiest form to absorb and can be taken on an empty stomach. It doesn't worsen any digestive issues unlike carbonate. It's needed to maintain bone health and facilitate cellular signalling.
VS
Regular Multivitamin
Calcium
❌ They use: Calcium Carbonate

Why not: requires stomach acid to absorb and people suffering from inflammatory bowel disease can't physically produce enough acid. Carbonate undergoes a complex process on the way to becoming an edible substance and is hard to digest. The unabsorbed nutrient content could lead to significant health concerns such as a heart disease. “Coral calcium” or calcium phosphate, either do not have nutritional benefits or are falsely advertised, having low bio-availability and health implications.
In Feel Multivitamin
Zinc
✅ Form we use: Natural Zinc Citrate

Why: has higher bio-availability - makes almost insoluble zinc dissolve in water and become bio-available. Our bodies don't produce zinc and it is crucial for immune system support and stimulating enzyme and protein production.
VS
Regular Multivitamin
Zinc
❌ They use: Zinc Oxide and Sulphate

Why not: Oxide is synthetic and almost insoluble in water or fat, widely used as an additive in materials such as rubbers, plastics, ceramics, cement and paints, Sulphate is also synthetic and can cause side-effects such as nausea and stomach distress.
In Feel Multivitamin
Boron
✅ Form we use: Disodium Borate (Borax)

Why: it regulates the activity of essential minerals (and is needed for calcium production), increases bio-availability of other minerals and improves metabolism.
VS
Regular Multivitamin
Boron
❌ They don’t add it

Why not: expensive to include.
In Feel Multivitamin
Co Enzyme Q10
✅ Form we use: Naturally fermented CoQ10

Why: ubiquinone is critically involved in the production of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) providing cells with energy and taking part in every cellular function.
VS
Regular Multivitamin
Co Enzyme Q10
❌ They don’t add it

Why not: it's too expensive for them to let you have it.
In Feel Multivitamin
L-Glutamine
✅ Form we use: L-Glutamine

Why: essential amino acid, forms proteins and supports gastrointestinal and immune health (by helping create new immune cells).
VS
Regular Multivitamin
L-Glutamine
❌ They don’t add it or use D-Glutamine.

Why not: it’s expensive to include, whereas D-Glutamine doesn't have any actual benefits, as numerous research papers suggest.
In Feel Multivitamin
Grapeseed Extract
✅ Form we use: Natural Grapeseed Extract (GSE)

Why: beneficial polyphenols and proanthocyanidins - powerful antioxidants that help defend blood vessels, improve digestion, aid in fighting diabetes and prevent neurodegenerative and cardiovascular diseases.
VS
Regular Multivitamin
Grapeseed Extract
❌ They don’t add it

Why not: expensive to include.
In Feel Multivitamin
Alpha Lipoic Acid
✅ Form we use: Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) - naturally occurring

Why: helps with cell signalling, oxidative stress and promotes weight loss. Our bodies generally don't produce enough of ALA and Vegans are especially at a high risk of a deficiency.
VS
Regular Multivitamin
Alpha Lipoic Acid
❌ They don’t add it

Why not: expensive to include.
In Feel Multivitamin
Lutein
✅ Form we use: Lutein - natural Carotenoid
