Vitamin A (as Beta Carotene)
- A fat-soluble vitamin, Vitamin A is actually a group of compounds with similar structure and function.
- Beta Carotene is one of the most common forms in both food and supplements, and gives many foods their yellow, orange, or red pigments.

- Necessary for general energy production and metabolism.
- MorphoMULTI contains 25mg Pantothenic Acid per serving.
Vitamin B9 Folate
- Supports healthy methylation in the body (helps with the efficient production of serotonin, norepinephrine and epinephrine, and nitric oxide).
- Most commonly known as the “pregnancy supplement” as it helps prevent neural tube defects (NTDs), folate is involved with DNA production, cell reproduction and homocysteine metabolism.
- Folic Acid is synthetically derived and can present deleterious effects if overconsumed. Needs to undergo conversion into more bioactive forms of folate in the body.
- Folinic Acid is a metabolically active form of folic acid (does not require enzymatic conversion) and assists with DNA repair.
- Quatrefolic® is a salt derivative of folic acid that is highly stable as well as fully bioavailable without enzymatic conversion or metabolism.
- MorphoMULTI contains a blend of Quatrefolic® and Folinic Acid to provide a total of 1mg DFE (dietary folate equivalents) per serving.
- Cobalamin (Vitamin B12) is involved in DNA synthesis, amino acid and fatty acid metabolism, nervous system functioning, and red blood cell development.
- Methylcobalamin provides additional methylation support.
- Hydroxocobalamin provides additional support against oxidative stress.
- Adenosylcobalmin provides additional mitochondrial support.
- MorphoMULTI contains a combined 750mcg Vitamin B12 per serving.
Vitamin C (as Ascorbic Acid)
- Ascorbic Acid is a popular supplement ingredient due to its antioxidant properties.
- Protects against oxidative stress, interacts with the pancreas, modulates cortisol, acts on neurology and depression, and increases nitric oxide levels.
- MorphoMULTI contains 90mg Ascorbic Acid per serving.
- A fat-soluble essential vitamin that is associated with a wide range of benefits, including increased cognition, immune health, bone health and well-being.
- Supplementation can also reduce blood pressure as well as cancer, heart disease, diabetes and multiple sclerosis.
- Most people do not have optimal levels of Vitamin D and supplementation is encouraged if optimal levels are not present in the body.
- MorphoMULTI contains 20mg Vitamin D3 per serving.
Vitamin E (as Mixed Tocopherols)
- Vitamin E is a group of compounds that improve T-cell mediated immune function and possess antioxidant properties.
- Enhances the body’s antibody response to vaccinations and protects against age-related cognitive decline.
- MorphoMULTI contains 15mg of mixed Tocopherols per serving.
Vitamin K2 (as MK-7)
- Vitamin K comes in a variety of different forms, known as vitamers. Forms of vitamin K are either phylloquinones (vitamin K1) or menaquinones (vitamin K2). There are different vitamers within the vitamin K2 class, abbreviated as MK-x.
- Increases bone mineral density.
- Lowers cardiovascular disease risk. Has a profound on both slowing down as well as reversing arterial calcification, or atherosclerosis.
- Should be paired with a dietary fat (such as fish oil) for maximum absorption.
- MorphoMULTI contains 120mcg Vitamin K2 (as all-trans MK-7 Menaquinone) per serving.
- Biotin is a vitamin often group with B-complex vitamins and is sometimes known as Vitamin B7.
- A key component of hair, skin, and nails; often supplemented to enhance their integrity.
- Potentially plays a beneficial role in glucose metabolism.
- MorphoMULTI contains 30mcg Biotin per serving.
- Iodine is a mineral that is required for proper thyroid functioning as well as cognition and fetal development.
- MorphoMULTI contains 150mcg Iodine per serving.
- TRAACS® (The Real Amino Acid Chelate System) is a patented method of increasing the bioavailability of certain minerals that may otherwise present absorption issues by way of chelation, or bonding the mineral to an amino acid complex.
- Magnesium is the second most prevalent electrolyte in the body.
- Deficiencies are common, especially in athletic populations.
- Too little magnesium causes increased blood pressure, reduces glucose tolerance, and causes neural excitation.
- Poorly absorbed forms of magnesium can cause gastric distress and diarrhea.

- Research shows that many athletes do not meet Selenium requirements even in the presence of increased caloric intake.
- MorphoMULTI contains 100mg Selenium per serving.
- Copper is a mineral involved in energy production, formation of connective tissue, iron metabolism, brain and nervous system function, antioxidant activity, red blood cell creation, and the formation of melanin.

Why do some of my capsules have an uneven fill volume? Does this mean they aren’t dosed properly?
During the production process, various excipients are utilized to ensure the proper amount of active ingredients flows into each capsule.
Due to the varied materials and densities of these excipients (as well as the active ingredients), capsules are filled by weight and not by volume. This is basically the same way you’d find food in boxes and bags at the grocery store that is “Filled by weight not by volume, some settling may occur”.
Unlike the food industry, the supplement industry has a more tightly regulated fill tolerance. Our manufacturers have an internal fill tolerance of + - 5%, and capsules are weighed to make sure they consistently fall in that range to meet specifications.
Basically, some capsules have the powders packed down, others have it loosely filled, but overall they meet the industry leading specifications for dosing tolerance.
