Multivitamins for Aussies
Space Vitamins, a wholly owned Australian company committed to locally producing high-quality supplements, has launched Australia's first super-premium multivitamin and mineral supplement. Where most store-bought vitamins are derived from synthetic sources using chemical ingredients, Space Vitamins contain natural ingredients extracted from sources such as rosehips, corn and vegetables, making them not only safer but easier to absorb, the company says. Their vitamins utilize organic-type minerals, formed by attaching the mineral molecule to a plant-based protein, which increases absorption in the body. Space Vitamins contain no preservatives, synthetic binders, gluten, lactose, sucrose, caffeine or copper. They are vegetarian friendly and available at pharmacies, health-food stores and online.
