Dr. Fuhrman’s Gentle Care Formula multivitamin and mineral supplement is appropriate for those with digestive sensitivities. It contains adequate amounts of essential nutrients that may be lacking even in a healthful diet, yet excludes any ingredients that have the potential to cause harm. Dr. Fuhrman is adamant about stopping the use of dangerous supplements. For example, several long-term scientific studies have demonstrated increased risks of cancer or premature death from the use of supplemental folic acid and Vitamin A. Gentle Care Formula excludes potentially harmful ingredients, such as vitamin A, beta-carotene, vitamin E, folic acid, and copper.
Gentle Care Formula also has other additional ingredients, based on the latest scientific research, to best support overall health. Gentle Care Formula supplement includes:
