BetiVite Multi-Vitamin Supplement Facts

Why Choose BetiVite?

BetiVite vs. Leading Mainstream Multi-Vitamin

Of the six critical vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that are important for people with diabetes to supplement to their diet (Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol), Chromium, Lycopene, and Lutein), BetaVite exceeds the leading mainstream multi-vitamin in the following five areas:

  • VITAMIN C: Offers an impressive 278% of the %Daily Value, the leading mainstream multi-vitamin offers 100%. Diabetics tend to have lower vitamin C levels, possibly because higher blood-glucose levels impair Vitamin C uptake*.

  • VITAMIN E: Provides an important 447% of the %Daily Value, whereas the leading mainstream multi-vitamin just meets 100% of the %Daily Value. Vitamin E may help prevent heart, eye and kidney damage, which is a common complication of diabetes*.

  • CHROMIUM: Offers 571% of the %Daily Value, but the leading mainstream multi-vitamin offers just 29%. Chromium has been reported to have a mild glucose-lowering effect and is often recommended for people with type-2 diabetes*.

  • LYCOPENE & LUTEIN: Includes these two antioxidants, whereas the mainstream multi-vitamin does not. Lycopene and Lutein levels are lower in people with diabetes, and supplementation may improve vision and decrease risks of diabetic eye disease*.

  • ALPHA LIPOIC ACID: Provides 100 mg per serving. This one-of-a-kind antioxidant helps relieve complications and symptoms of diabetes caused by nerve damage, including numbness in the legs and arms, cardio problems, eye-related disorders, pain and swelling. It may help relieve pain, burning, itching, tingling and numbness due to diabetic peripheral neuropathy.*

BetiVite vs. Leading Diabetic-Specific Multi-Vitamin

Of the six critical vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that are important for people with diabetes to supplement to their diet (Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol), Chromium, Lycopene, and Lutein), BetaVite exceeds the leading diabetic-specific OTC multi-vitamin by placing a higher importance on three of the “critical six”:

  • CHROMIUM: Offers 571% of the %Daily Value, but a leading diabetic-specific OTC doesn’t even include this important mineral in its formulation. Chromium has been reported to have a mild glucose-lowering effect and is often recommended for people with type-2 diabetes*.

  • LYCOPENE: Provides 3 mg of this important antioxidant; however, a leading diabetic-specific OTC does not include it in its formulation. Lycopene and lutein levels are lower in diabetics, and supplementation may help improve improve vision and decrease risks of diabetic eye disease*.

  • LUTEIN: Includes 1 mg of this nutrient, whereas a leading diabetic-specific OTC only provides 200 mcg of Lutein. Lycopene and Lutein levels are lower in diabetics, and supplementation may help improve vision and decrease risks of diabetic eye disease*.

  • ALPHA LIPOIC ACID: Provides 100 mg per serving. This one-of-a-kind antioxidant helps relieve complications and symptoms of diabetes caused by nerve damage, including numbness in the legs and arms, cardio problems, eye-related disorders, pain and swelling. It may help relieve pain, burning, itching, tingling and numbness due to diabetic peripheral neuropathy.*

D4L Water Soluble CoQ10

Water Soluble CoQ10 is an Advanced Bioavailability Water Miscible CoQ10 that uses pure CoQ10 – a Bioenhanced Coenzyme CoQ10, (Patent Number 6,861,447), – for enhanced dissolution and easier absorption. Water Soluble CoQ10 utilizes the highly advanced gamma cyclodextrin delivery system to enhance absorption up to 8X over typical CoQ10. Gamma Cyclodextrin microencapsulates the coq10 molecule, ushering it through the gastric system, assisting its absorption through the small intestines and releasing the coq10 in the bloodstream where cellular uptake occurs.

  • Water Soluble CoQ10 is 100% Natural.

  • Water Soluble CoQ10 is 100% vegetarian.

  • Water Soluble CoQ10 has NO artificial ingredients.

  • Water Soluble CoQ10 has NO Vitamin E.

  • Water Soluble CoQ10 has NO Soy.

  • Water Soluble CoQ10 is an All Trans CoQ10.

  • Water Soluble CoQ10 is a USP Grade CoQ10.

  • Water Soluble CoQ10 is non – GMO (NO Genetically Modified Organisms).


    NOTE: The Coenzyme Q10 utilized in the preparation has been self affirmed as a GRAS ingredient (USP Grade Coenzyme Q10). The gamma cyclodextrin utilized has also been self affirmed as a GRAS ingredient (Wacker Biochem).

D4L Alpha lipoic Acid

Alpha Lipoic Acid, abbreviated as ALA, is a coenzyme that provides important metabolic functions, such as aiding in the breakdown of macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates and fats) for energy production [1] , while also offering superior antioxidative benefits.

ALA is often referred to as a “Universal Antioxidant” due to its ability to neutralize free radicals in both lipid and aqueous environments, as well as its wide versatility in targeting those oxidants, making it ubiquitously beneficial in all body systems. [2] Going a step beyond some other antioxidants, ALA can regenerate many essential antioxidants such as glutathione, vitamins C and E, and coenzyme Q10 [3] while helping to repair cells damaged by oxidation [4] . ALA also protect organs and other tissues from toxic metal accumulation, such as from mercury, lead or cadmium, by forming insoluble bonds with those metals and ensuring their secretion from the body. [5]

In addition to aiding in energy production and providing cellular protection, ALA is instrumental in glucose metabolism, simultaneously lowering blood glucose levels and increasing insulin sensitivity, [6] [7] [8] making it a highly beneficial supplement for diabetics. ALA has also been found to alleviate diabetic neuropathy, [9] a degenerative nerve condition involving pain and numbness in the extremities. In fact, one randomized, double-blind study in Germany showed over 80% of participants who received 600mg ALA daily reported significantly fewer adverse neuropathy symptoms than the placebo group. [10]

Health Thru Nutrition’s Alpha Lipoic Acid provides 600mg pure ALA in one vegecapsule to help you reach your goals. It is Non-GMO, hypoallergenic and, like all of HTN’s quality products, is manufactured in a cGMP facility in the United States.
