MST MVP-365 Write Up and FAQ
MVP-365™ is an athlete’s most complete multiple vitamin and is formulated specifically for the high performance nutritional and energy needs of the bigger, stronger and faster. MVP-365™ incorporates the most bioavailable forms of vitamins & nutrients including a high potency co-enzymal b-complex, mineral ascorbate vitamin-c, Krebs cycle intermediates & mineral chelates, adaptogens, greens, high potency food sourced antioxidants & phytonutrients. MVP-365™ provides optimal nutrient support and protection to combat daily stress and exercise induced free radical damage caused by intense training.*
We all strive to eat for optimal health & performance but it’s becoming harder and harder to gain and maintain proper nutritional stasis in this day and age. This is due to our overly stressful, high pace lifestyles & environmental pollutants robbing our bodies of vital nutrients. Combine that with the lack of nutrients obtained from our food due to soil depletion and we as athletes are at a major nutritional disadvantage.
Many top sport nutritionists agree that even if you eat a 100% organic diet you may still be nutrient deficient and require supplementation. Think of MVP-365™ as the first piece to your “Foundation of Health”, your insurance policy if you will.
Let’s examine what sets MVP-365™ apart from the competition.
Co-Enzyme B Vitamins provide the highest bioavailability and energy production efficiency of all forms of B’s. In order for various forms of B vitamins to be properly absorbed they require conversion into their active co-enzyme forms. Co-enzyme B’s do not require conversion and are shuttled directly to their target sites in their active form. This means more valuable B vitamins are absorbed and utilized for maximum cellular energy production as well as proper carbohydrate, fat and protein absorption, metabolism and utilization.
Mineral Ascorbates are natural mineral chelate forms of vitamin c, all of which have potent vitamin C properties. Mineral ascorbates maintain higher blood levels of vitamin C than ascorbic acid or other common forms of vitamin c due to higher bioavailability through multi pathway absorption. Vitamin C plays many important roles in our bodies. It is a cofactor / co-substrate for eight different enzymatic pathways involved in functions like hormone biosynthesis, collagen synthesis and ATP synthesis via the krebs cycle. Vitamin C is also well known for its role in strengthening the immune system, preventing lipid oxidation, supporting the adrenals and acting as a potent antioxidant.
Krebs Cycle Intermediates are organic acids that are absolutely crucial to energy production in every cell of our bodies. Citrate, Malate, Fumarate, Succinate and Alpha Keto Glutarate all contribute as intermediates in the vital Krebs cycle. MVP-365™ incorporates 454mg’s of Krebs cycle intermediates chelated to calcium. This not only bolsters the bioavailability of the calcium but also enhances the effects and efficiency of the mineral ascorbates and co-enzymal b vitamins in ATP production.
Adaptogens are unique compounds that increase our resistance to stress. Adaptogens help bring balance and stasis to the body providing a normalizing effect. Adaptogens provide protection to the adrenal glands balancing stress hormones and aiding in proper immune function. The adaptogens in MVP-365™ (ashwagandha, astragalus & spirulina) combined with the highly bioavailable co-enzymal b’s and mineral ascorbates provide comprehensive adrenal support and protection for exercise induced stress.
Greens are important to aid in maintaining healthy pH and in binding to harmful toxins and cleansing the blood. We have chosen to include cracked cell chlorella for its unique nutrient profile (organically bound beta-carotene, vitamin B-12, chlorophyll, iron, DNA, RNA & zinc) and its ability to bind up toxins for elimination. Spirulina was chosen for its rich polysaccharide content and its unique nutrient profile (including GLA fatty acids, chlorophyll and b-vitamins). Both Spirulina and chlorella display strong antioxidant effects as well.
High potency antioxidants & phytonutients are imperative to the health and well being of any athlete. MVP-365™ incorporates high ORAC value, food based antioxidants and phytonutirients to help combat the ravages of exercise induced free radical damage. Standardized extracts of pomegranate (40% ellagic acid), turmeric (95% curcumin), matcha tea (90% polyphenols), blueberry (16% chlorogenic acid), grape seed 95% OPC) and bilberry (25% anthocycanins) combine with alpha lipoic acid, lutein, zeaxanthin, co-enzyme Q10 and the highly bioavailable forms of vitamins A, C and E to make MVP-365™ and antioxidant powerhouse.
The “Delivery and Absorption” blend (of MSM, d-ribose, aloe vera extract 200:1, bromelain 2400gdu and papain 2400ups) in MVP-365™ provides digestive and assimilation support for the formula. We’ve added it to ensure that all nutrients are shuttled along nicely through the digestive tract for ultra fast absorption.
Formulated to target the specific needs of athletes MVP-365™ is not your typical low potency drug store, grocery store or health food store multi-vitamin. You can actually feel the energy from MVP-365™. Whether you are an elite endurance athlete, strength and power athlete, weekend warrior or gym rat, make MVP-365™ a cornerstone in your foundation of health! Why buy MVP-365™? Because your health and performance depend on it!
When taken together, MVP-365™ and ZMK™ combine to create the most complete and effective athlete nutrient protocol available.*
MVP-365™ does NOT contain any wheat, soy, corn, egg, milk, colors, binders, fillers or excipients.
Multi Vitamin Protocol: Take two MVP-365™ capsules in the morning with breakfast and two capsules with lunch.
Multi Mineral Protocol: Take 4 tablets of ZMK™ 30-60 minutes prior to bedtime.
The All Important Facts!
- 09-15-2007, 03:05 PM
Q: Why is there only 120mg of Calcium in MVP-365™?
A: Let’s count the reasons:
• Serious athletes consume ample calcium containing foods such as green leafy veggies, salmon, tofu, peas, broccoli, beans, nuts, fortified bread, fortified cereals, fortified orange juice and dairy products which include milk, cheese, and yogurt.
• Most athletes consume abundant amounts of whey and casein protein which are very calcium rich.
• Most athletes are already magnesium deficient. More calcium will only exacerbate this situation leading to further depleted magnesium levels, decreased recovery and muscle cramps.
• Space- We squeezed all of the MVP-365™ ingredients into four small OO size capsules for ease of swallowing. Any more mineral content would have increased the number of capsules in the serving or the size of the capsule.
Q: Where are all of the other minerals I normally see in multi-vitamins?
A: Most sport nutritionists recommend that you consume your vitamins during the day with food and your minerals at night before bed. 99.9% of vitamins you can purchase don’t allow for this. We omitted nearly all of the minerals in MVP-365™ (except the Krebs calcium, 20mg of Magnesium and Iodine) to make way for our nighttime multi-mineral complex ZMK™. The protocol is simple, take MVP-365™ during the day with food and ZMK™ at night before bedtime.
Q: What is ZMK™?
A: ZMK™ is the second piece in your “foundation of health”. Think of it as the ultimate mineral counterpart to MVP-365’™. ZMK™ is the only Krebs cycle chelated Zinc and Magnesium product with active co-enzymal P-5-P vitamin B-6 and a full spectrum Kreb’s cycle chelated mineral support blend. ZMK™ is formulated to not only maximize recovery, sleep, hormone stasis, pH balance and cardiovascular health but also to bolster ATP. ZMK™ is the perfect mineral compliment to MVP-365’s™ vitamins and the ultimate replacement for ZMA.
Q: Why doesn’t MVP-365™ have a joint blend or other blends in it?
A: We chose to make the best multiple vitamin available to an athlete based on the four most important nutritional needs of an athlete. We chose not to cut corners in any way and a joint or other blends simply didn’t make the cut.
Our goal was to provide-
• Ultra bioavailable vitamins in the body’s preferred active forms.
• Maximum antioxidant protection to combat exercise induced free radical damage.
• Maximum clean, long lasting energy
• Adaptogenic support for exercise induced stress.
Q: Why isn’t MVP-365™ whole food based?
A: There are two main reasons:
#1. The majority of so called “whole-food” based multi vitamins on the market are market incorrectly and should not be allowed to bear that name. Most consist of yeast or probiotics that are fed regular, non active, low bioavailable forms of vitamins. Once the yeast assimilates some vitamin content they are then freeze dried or spray dried. Does this sound like whole food? The fact is that these are vitamins bound to yeast or probiotics and even though they are a smidge more bioavailable than the conventional vitamins they were fed they are nearly always substandard and lack the proper potency required by an athlete.
#2. To get enough vitamin content out of a true “whole-food” vitamin (a vitamin actually made from whole foods) an athlete would need to consume a whopping 12-16 capsule daily serving. Four capsules just for 500mg of whole food based vitamin c.
Q: Why isn’t MVP-365™ in a veggie cap?
A: We chose to put MVP-365™ in a gelatin cap for its ability to dissolve faster in the stomach and assimilate faster than a veggie cellulose capsule. Some veggie caps require more time to breakdown than some tablets. We simply wanted a rapid release, fast acting product.
Q: Why doesn’t it contain more adaptogens?
A: “Synergy”! You see the co-enzyme b-complex & mineral ascorbates combine to make the best, most bioavailable “stress vitamin” combination available. When you combine the ashwagandha, astragalus and spirulina on top of that it’s quite an efficient adrenal support blend. It was potent enough to allow us capsule space for more antioxidants.
Q: Is MVP-365™ right for a woman even though it has no added iron?
A: Obviously we all have different nutritional needs. The fact is that most menstruating women tend be anemic due to a lack of vitamin B-12 rather than a lack of iron. MVP-365™ contains 500mcg of active B-12 as methylcobalamin. If you have been diagnosed as anemic by your doctor and are taking a separate iron supplement MVP-365™ is certainly compatible with it.
Q: Can an athlete with extreme nutritional needs take more than the recommended dose?
A: The combination of active and ultra bioavailable vitamin forms in MVP-365™ allows you to assimilate and use far more nutrients than conventional vitamins so it may not be needed, but; it is safe to increase the dose for those under extreme stress it. We do not recommend taking more than 8 capsules in 24 hours.
Q: Why is there only 25mg of P-5-P B-6 in MVP when all of the other B-Vitamins are higher dosed?
A: We chose to provide 25mg during the day in the MVP and an additional 25mg in ZMK for extra rapid assimilation and transport of the minerals. Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate is incredibly bioavailable and 25mg per day is plenty even without getting extra in ZMK.

this looks neat!
Just a quick question. I see a lack of minerals in MVP. Was it meant to be stacked with ZMK?

Afterall most multi vitamins that people consume are low dose, low bioavailable vitamins with pixie dust amounts of minerals sprinkled in or inefficient forms like di-calcium phosphate (which is the binder/excipient in most tablets). The fact of the matter is if we had to put it into one product the serving size would be hyuuuuge or the tablet would be the size of a volkswagon.
Unfortunately in the world of supplement manufacturing the main problem with vitamins and minerals is capsule or tablet space. We managed to bypass the issue and make two very solid products that allow for proper nutrient timing.
Thanks for the support!

What would you guys say about someone that uses poseidon 3-4 times a day for minerals? Would you be able to omit the zmk mineral supp at night?
How about synergy w/ mvp?
09-16-2007, 05:55 PM
The synergy between poseidon and MVP-365 would be great in my opinion. The energy would be off the hook.
09-16-2007, 06:00 PM
Thanks again for the kind words.

Two quick questions broham...
MVP = Niacin? why?
ZMK = Selenium @ 200mcg?? Why?
EDIT: more specifically, I would have left niacin out and had 100mcg on the selenium, 200mcgs if not checked through diet could be potentially toxic, the deficiency in bodybuilders is there, but 200mcgs SPLIT throughout the day is the max, and this is found in our food as well. (just curious bruvva)

We chose to add 200mcgs of selenium to help maximize the glutathione peroxidase enzyme which is essential for the production of glutathione in “athletes” who are exposing themselves to major exercise induced free radical damage. Without adequate selenium the body cannot manufacture enough glutathione peroxidase and glutathione leading to higher levels free radical damage.
There is obviously a lot of information and misinformation on both sides of the issue. We’ve looked at all of the factors for toxicity and felt that 200mcgs was a very safe dose even for an athlete who consumes a healthy diet. The National Academy of Sciences' Food and Nutrition Board has stated that a daily intake of between 50 to 300 micrograms of selenium is "safe and adequate" and tolerable upper limits for healthy sedentary people ages 14-55 is 400mcgs per day. Remember that these are levels for your average person sitting on the couch exercising with their remote control. Athletes can obviously tolerate more due to the massive amounts of daily stress exerted leading to free radicals that need to be quenched and neutralized. Proven therapeutic doses often range from 200 to 400mcg daily and here has been no evidence of selenosis in US adults consuming up to 724mcg daily. The average daily selenium intake in the US is about 100mcg from food sources. Combine that with the 200mcg contained in ZMK and you have 300mcg. This is less than half of the dose (724mcg) believed to be the beginning of toxicity here in the US. Japan puts a more stringent number on selenium intake at 500mcgs per day and this would still put ZMK + dietary intake 200mcg below that.
Remember ZMK is for athletes, but even if a non athlete were to take it they would be safe.
Many studies have been conducted on selenium’s antioxidant and anticancer properties. One such lengthy study with people taking 200mcg selenium supplements had 71% fewer prostate cancers, 67% fewer esophageal cancers, 62% fewer colorectal cancers and 46% fewer lung cancers than the people who were taking the placebos.
Good looking out RA! It’s much appreciated.

I am completely blown away! I can already imagine the intended amazing synergy between MVP and ZMK. The extremely generous Krebs Cycle Intermediates alone in ZMK and MVP are worth the price of both products! I will definitely add them to my arsenal. Excellent job!Originally Posted by Millennium 1;

Product looks great, but not sure if you can sway me away from Orange Triad with the occasional Poseidon/Blast...
(this means I want you to try to, tell me why yours is better)
