Blackmores Sustained Release Multi is specifically formulated to provide many of the nutrients your body requires over a sustained 8 hour period.
Features and benefits
The release of key vitamins and minerals over a prolonged period ensures nutrients are available when your body needs them. This is particularly important for vitamin C and the B vitamins which are water soluble and not stored in the body in large amounts.
The nutrients in this sustained release formula are embedded within a cellulose gum matrix. This swells and breaks down during the digestive process, causing gradual diffusion and release of nutrients over an eight hour period.
