Research, research…
and more research.

We’ve worked with scientists, nutritional experts, and fellow Type 1s in order to craft the most effective multivitamin possible. Our unique ingredients come from all over the world, and they’re all put together here in the United States, in a top tier FDA‐registered facility.

Alpha Lipoic Acid

Also known as thioctic acid, this unique water and fat‐soluble nutrient has been shown to support insulin sensitivity as well as promote a healthy nervous system. This is critical, especially in the maintenance of long‐term nerve health. Of the two enantiomers of alpha lipoic acid, the “R”, or natural form, is better absorbed by the intestinal tract.

Amla

The fruit of the Phyllanthus emblica tree, also known as Indian gooseberry, has been used for centuries for its flavoring properties. Recently, researchers discovered that certain polyphenols found in amla can help support healthy blood sugar levels in addition to promoting a healthy nervous system.

Bilberry

Bilberries, known for their bittersweet taste, have long been used in a variety of medicinal capacities. In addition to supporting ocular health, certain anthocyanosides found in these berries have the capability to support healthy insulin sensitivity. This is thought to be done by drastically reducing the amount of inflammatory cytokines in circulation, supporting insulin’s ability to bind to its receptors.

Biotin

Another member of the B vitamin family is biotin, otherwise known as vitamin B7 or vitamin H. Biotin is directly involved in various metabolic pathways in humans and animals, and when taken in certain amounts in supplemental form it has been shown to effectively reduce the amount of glycogen and gluconeogenesis (synthesis of glucose from other substrates).
