More than the RDA?

SuperMom vitamins are fortified with green foods and are chock-full of vitamins and minerals, including Beta-Carotene, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, and the all-important B vitamins.  If you peruse the ingredient list below, you'll notice that the quantities of some vitamins and minerals actually exceed the RDA.

More than the RDA?  Should you take more than the Recommended Daily Allowance?  In many cases, yes!

The RDA is based primarily on the prevention of deficiency disease, rather than the promotion of optimum health.  Consider the lesser-known UL, which stands for Tolerable Upper Intake Level. 

Take Vitamin C for example...  The RDA of Vitamin C for females aged 19-70 is 75 mg.  SuperMom provides 500 mg, 830% of the RDA.  That sounds excessive until you consider that the UL of Vitamin C for females aged 19-70 is 2,000 mg. 

Check the numbers for yourself at the USDA National Agricultural Library website.  You'll find that SuperMom provides more than just what you need to get by; it provides what you need to actually feel better!
