Safeguard Your Nutrition With The Fast 800’s New Multivitamin
Product Launch Announcement
10 May 2022
As humans, a balanced diet is the best source of essential vitamins and minerals, however, it’s difficult to determine when all your needs are fulfilled, particularly on fasting days. Given these micronutrients are critical for immune function, an effective multivitamin can help fill nutritional gaps and offer nutritional assurance. But how do you know which, if any, to take? There are so many different types on the market – some for the over fifties, some for vegans and vegetarians, some formulated specifically for women and some for men. Dr Michael Mosley explains why he and The Fast 800 Team decided to produce their own brand of nutritional supplements, specifically formulated for people who are overweight or obese and who are looking to boost levels of essential micronutrients while losing weight, fast.
Dr Mosley explains “I'm often asked if it is necessary to take vitamins or minerals when doing The Fast 800, and if so, which ones. Our meal replacement shakes contain adequate amounts of micronutrients. And whilst our recipes are balanced for variety, calories and protein, you may also want to take a high-quality multivitamin because a surprising number of people who are overweight or obese are deficient in certain vitamins and essential minerals. Taking The Fast 800 Multivitamin should help to quickly sort this out”.
In a recent study, where researchers from Curtin University in Perth, Western Australia tested the blood of 127 overweight or obese individuals with an average age of 49, they found that most of them were deficient in vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin E, folic acid, zinc, calcium and magnesium.

The Fast 800 Multivitamin contains all these essential nutrients, along with others that the Perth scientists didn’t test for, including selenium and iodine. Selenium is a powerful antioxidant, which boosts your immune system and may protect you from cancer. A recent Italian study found that giving selenium supplements to obese patients who were dieting helped with weight loss.
When taken alongside a moderately low carb, Mediterranean-style diet, The Fast 800 Multivitamin covers your daily nutritional needs, on both fasting and non-fasting days. By taking a multivitamin, you’ll be getting daily peace of mind, safeguarding your nutrition on your journey to lose weight for better health.
The bespoke Multivitamin formulation, with 25 essential vitamins and minerals, is specifically formulated to support your journey to better health.
As for iodine, which is mainly found in white fish and cow’s milk, the Australian population is officially classified as mildly iodine deficient ref. Iodine is vital for a healthy thyroid gland, which in turn helps control your metabolism. Iodine deficiency can lead to hypothyroidism (an underactive thyroid gland) which often leads to weight gain.
