Super Nu-Thera has been a most popular dietary supplement from Kirkman® since its inception in 1967. The original Super Nu-Thera was formulated by Kirkman at the urgent request of a researcher, Dr. Bernard Rimland, who wanted a nutritional supplement with high vitamin B6 and magnesium content that tasted good so children would take the product. The original form of Super Nu-Thera was an orange flavored powdered supplement. This classic is still available as our Super Nu-Thera Powder(#470-454) .
What is unique about Super Nu-Thera?
Super Nu-Thera is a multiple vitamin/mineral supplement featuring vitamin B6 and magnesium. Super Nu-Thera also contains the rest of the B vitamins, vitamin C, the oil soluble vitamins E, A and D (in many formulations), as well as the minerals zinc, manganese and selenium. Some forms of Super Nu-Thera® also may include calcium, depending on whether that product’s particular formulation can incorporate the large volume of calcium required. Forms of Super Nu-Thera not containing calcium may require individuals to use a calcium supplement if their diet is not supplying the “Daily Recommended Value” of this important nutrient.
What other forms of Super-Thera have evolved since the original?
The Super Nu-Thera line of multi-vitamins became so popular that it now includes many varieties in capsule, powder, liquid and caplet forms.
Why might I choose a hypoallergenic formulation of Super Nu-Thera?
Kirkman offers hypoallergenic formulations that are specially designed for individuals with special dietary requirements and sensitivities. These formulations are free of fillers, sweeteners, flavorings, colorings, preservatives or common allergens.
Why might I choose a formulation without vitamins A and D?
Many individuals obtain supplementation of vitamins A and/or D from cod liver oil or other sources. For those individuals, Kirkman offers Super Nu-Thera® without vitamins A and D.
Why might I choose a formulation that contains pyridoxal 5-phosphate (P-5-P)?
P-5-P is an alternative form of vitamin B6 that some individuals utilize more completely than vitamin B6. P-5-P is the metabolically active coenzyme of pyridoxine and is an essential cofactor in many enzymatic reactions in amino acid metabolism.
