The keystone of every nutritional product line is a multi-vitamin/mineral supplement. A multi-vitamin/mineral product is the starting point for every individual's supplementation needs and therefore it should contain all of the essential nutrients. Because of the state of the current food supply and because very few individuals eat the recommended five daily servings of fruits and vegetables, nutrition experts agree that a multi-vitamin/mineral supplement should be taken daily. Even the Journal of the American Medical Association – not usually known as a supporter of nutritional supplements – suggests that everyone should take a multi-vitamin/mineral supplement ( JAMA 2002;287:3127-3129). A good multi-vitamin/mineral nutritional supplement could be considered "dietary insurance" to be certain all of the essential nutrients are being consumed on a daily basis. Even greater health benefits can be realized when a healthy diet is being eaten in addition to taking a multi-vitamin/mineral supplement. A joint statement issued by the American College of Sports Medicine, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, and the Dietitians of Canada is particularly noteworthy for individuals involved in athletic activities:  “Supplements may be required by athletes who restrict energy intakes, use severe weight loss practices, eliminate one or more food groups from their diet, or consume high-carbohydrate diets with low micronutrient density. Basic Nutrients 2/Day provides a comprehensive multi-vitamin/mineral complex. Its key nutritional features include 2,000 IU of vitamin D3 and 400 mcg of vitamin K (in K1 and K2 forms) per serving, in addition to having mixed tocopherols, bioactive B-vitamins, and amino acid-chelated minerals, including calcium and magnesium – all in a two-capsule-per-day delivery system. Basic Nutrients 2/Day makes it easy for individuals to obtain foundational nutritional support. Basic Nutrients 2/Day is NSF Certified for Sport.

ADDITIONAL WARNINGS

5-methyltetrahydrofolate supplementation is not recommended concurrently with methotrexate cancer therapy, as it can interfere with methotrexate's anti-neoplastic activity; however, this folate source has not been shown to interfere with the anti-inflammatory activity of methotrexate.

An individual taking methotrexate for psoriasis or rheumatoid arthritis can safely take a supplement containing folate.
