    Viridian’s new multi-phytonutrient complex is formulated as a two a day programme. This provides all the benefits of taking a very good multivitamin and also a strong phyto-nutrient complex so essential to enhancing the body’s defences and systems. For best results take either two together with breakfast, or one with breakfast and one with lunch.

Vegetarian capsules are used by Viridian for a number of reasons. They are able to dissolve much more easily than tablets, especially by people who have impaired digestive systems due to stress and the ageing process. There are also concerns regarding the use of gelatin based products due to fears over BSE etc.

All Viridian products are manufactured to the highest of standards without the use of inert excipients (fillers and binders). This makes them far purer than other products available and as a result a lot more cost effective for the consumer to use.


The B-complex used is a balanced formula meeting today’s nutritional requirements. Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) is the major consideration as it is the main anti-stress and ‘energy’ vitamin that the body requires. B5 exerts anti-inflammatory properties whilst a deficiency can lead to various ailments, including fatigue, depression, insomnia, poor muscle co-ordination and muscle cramps.

Deficiencies in the other B vitamins can lead to individuals suffering from one or more of the following; chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, raised cholesterol and migraine headaches.

All the other B group vitamins are then presented in a much more balanced formula. We know from the latest nutritional research that the body uses theses essential nutrients in varying amounts, not necessarily in the equal amounts found in a lot of other products. E.g. B50 and B100 complexes.


As well as providing 440mg of vitamin C, the multi ascorbate complex also provides the body with highly absorbable levels of Magnesium, Calcium and Zinc. The vitamin C is low acid so as to minimise possible irritation to the digestive system, compared with normal ascorbic acid.

Additionally, the use of organic acerola – nature’s richest source of vitamin C, provides a wide range of synergistic collagen protecting bioflavonoids.


The key active compounds found in pine bark extract, grape seed extract, green tea and quercetin are flavonoids, polyphenols, oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs) and catechins. All these compounds have pronounced and varied effects on the body. This can range from catechins in green tea helping to protect against damage to LDL (bad) cholesterol caused by oxygen. The use of green tea increases antioxidant activity in the blood.

OPC’s found in pine bark and grapeseed extracts help protect against free radical damage to cells. This effect can be up to 50 times more active than the antioxidant effect of vitamin C and E. A key advantage of using these extracts is that they are taken up into the cell membranes and help to protect against both water and fat soluble free-radicals.

Other conditions that may be helped by using these types of phytonutrients include visual function, cardiovascular protection, sexual health/performance, varicose veins and atherosclerosis. As we study more into the health benefits associated with antioxidant protection more and more people with different ailments will surely benefit.


mineral chelates (taxis) offer excellent levels of absorption, giving the body the best opportunity to utilise these nutrients to their full potential. Included in this product are high levels of essential minerals like Zinc, Selenium, Copper and Manganese. Areas where trace mineral use can be of great importance include cardiovascular protection, blood sugar control, anti-inflammatory conditions and of course more importantly they are essential in helping with antioxidant protection and activity. The use of these types of nutrients can help individuals improve immune function, infertility (male), prostate dysfunction, athletic performance and even help fight the common cold.


The carotenoid complex used by viridian comes from a natural source rather than synthetic forms commonly used. Natural source offers higher absorption over its synthetic counterparts and also ensures that other naturally occurring synergistic nutrients are included that would otherwise be absent from the synthetic forms.
The role of
beta carotene as an antioxidant in the body and also within food preparation has long been known about. It converts into vitamin A, helping to boost immune function as well as exerting antioxidant effects. There are also naturally occurring carotenoids that have equally impressive antioxidant ability within the body. These include alpha carotene, cryptoxanthin, zeaxanthin and lutein.
The beneficial effects of carotenoids are enhanced by the way they work synergistically together. For example lutein and zeaxanthin have a synergy that helps particularly in cases of macular degeneration. Carotenoids show great promise in the prevention of other degenerative conditions such as cataracts, atherosclerosis, and cognitive decline in the elderly.


Bromelain is a protein-splitting enzyme used to aid the digestion of food and improve nutrient absorption. It can also be useful in helping to treat conditions such as sinusitis, anti-inflammatory illnesses such as arthritis and can enhance the effectiveness of antibiotics.


Lipoic acid plays two major roles in the human body. Firstly it is a unique and powerful antioxidant. Its uniqueness comes from the fact that it is both water and fat-soluble thus allowing it to work throughout the whole body. It also has the remarkable ability to enhance and extend the life of other antioxidant nutrients.
Lipoic acid has also been shown to be essential in the manufacture of glutathione which is required for the production of the most powerful antioxidant in the body- GLUTATHIONE PEROXIDASE.
The other main role of Lipoic acid is as an essential coenzyme in two vital reactions required for the production of cellular energy. Lipoic acid is key to the process of converting sugars into carbohydrates.

Co-Q10 (ubiquinone)

helps to convert food into the energy through producing the energy molecule (ATP). Co-Q10 is also a powerful antioxidant that helps to control the damage caused by free radicals, while also helping to protect vitamin E the major antioxidant of cell membranes and cholesterol. The presence of MCTs in the formula provides a suitable transport medium for both fat soluble nutrients including Co-Q10.

Due to the effect that both of these nutrients have as antioxidants and also on energy production it is no surprise that there use within the body is so far widespread. Some of the studied areas of use include cardio protective, immune supporting, blood sugar regulating, liver protection, high blood pressure and male fertility.


Most of the body’s sulphur requirements are obtained from sulphur containing amino acids found in protein rich foods. The richest sources of sulphur are the amino acids methionine and cysteine. Cysteine is also one of the amino acids that go to make glutathione along with glutamic acid and glysine.
Sulphur is a constituent of teeth, bones and collagen. It is also a component of insulin and as such is needed to regulate blood sugar levels.

Research surrounding sulphur compounds focuses on their antioxidant capabilities via liver detoxification. Other areas of interest are in PMS, mental acuity, immune function, joint integrity/function, and health and maintenance of hair, skin and nails.


In recent years there has been concern that “iron overnutrition” by otherwise healthy individuals may lead to increased risk for chronic diseases. With this in mind the Multi-Phytonutrient Complex is iron free. For those with supplemental requirements for iron i.e. anemia in pregnancy, menstrual blood loss, adolescent females, or those on poor diets, it would be prudent to take an additional iron supplement separately.

Vegan, Kosher, Veg Caps

MultiPhytoNutrient Complex is formulated to include optimum amounts and presentations of the best quality vitamins, minerals, co-factors and plant extracts. This is a  two-a-day supplement.

Vitamin C

plays an essential role in numerous areas of human health. Vitamin C contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of bones, cartilage, skin, gums and teeth.  Vitamin C also enhances iron absorption and the normal energy-yielding metabolism. Vitamin C aids in the maintenance of the immune system including during and after intense physical exercise. Vitamin C contributes to normal psychological function, the functioning of the nervous system and contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress. 'Oxidative stress' appears to be a major factor in many human diseases.

B complex


vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6 & B12) contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, to normal psychological function and mental performance, energy-yielding metabolism, the regulation of hormonal activity, the functioning of the immune, cardio and nervous systems and the maintenance of normal skin, mucous membranes, vision and red blood cells. B complex vitamins also contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.

Vitamin D contributes to the maintenance of normal bones, teeth, muscle function and immune function. 

MultiPhytoNutrient Complex is Iron and Iodine free.
