B complex vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6 & B12) are water soluble vitamins and contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, to normal psychological function and mental performance, increased energy levels and  metabolism by converting food into energy, 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. This 'oxidative stress' appears to be a major factor in many human diseases.

Why is Viridian's Woman 40+ Multi so good?

Woman 40+ Multi represents the best possible multivitamin for healthy aging and longevity available. More than just a multivitamin, Woman 40+ Multi blends high quality Essential nutrients and plant extracts specifically to support healthy aging, optimal body weight,bone health vision and heart health.

Suboptimal intakes of key nutrients like key vitamins and minerals are remarkably common in the general population because of unhealthy eating, nutrient losses though food processing and storage and increased nutritional requirements due to factors such as alcohol use, chronic diseases and increasing age. For this reason, leading experts such as Harvard Medical School recommend a daily multivitamin as part of a healthy diet (Plenty of fresh fruit, organic fruits and vegetables and lifestyle. There is a strong scientific rationale for the use of multivitamins as a safe and effective means of ensuring daily nutritional adequacy and promoting optimal health.


Resveratrol is a natural phytonutrient found in grape skins and wine with growing evidence for important health benefits. A number of human clinical studies suggest potential for the prevention of age-related diseases including heart disease, type-2 diabetes and cognitive decline. Clinical studies have demonstrated health benefits with daily supplementation of just 8-10 mg of high quality resveratrol daily.  For example supplementation with 10 mg of resveratrol for 3-months significantly improved measures of cardiovascular health, including blood vessel relaxation, heart muscle function and cholesterol lowering effects. And in another study 10 mg of resveratrol daily was found to lower oxidative stress and improve insulin resistance within 4-weeks.

Pomegranate has a long traditional association with longevity and modern research has confirmed potential benefits for preventing age related disease. Several potential mechanisms for pomegranate observed health effects have been explored, in particular antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Human clinical studies tend to suggest beneficial effects for cardiovascular health, type-2 diabetes, obesity and skin photoaging.


Ensuring optimal daily intake of essential vitamins and minerals, along with additional anti-oxidant support has been suggested to be an important way to improve metabolism and prevent age related disease. More specifically low micronutrient intake can increase oxidative stress and accelerate DNA damage and mitochondrial decay subsequently giving rise to age-associated diseases; these processes could be offset by ensuring daily micronutrient intake with a food multivitamin or advanced multivitamins.


Green coffee bean extract (GCE) is a rich source of phytonutrients, most notably polyphenols occurring as chlorogenic acids, which have a variety of potential health benefits. GCE has been shown to have anti-obesity effects and regular use results in weight loss. A meta-analysis of the three clinical studies found an average weight loss of 2.5 kg at a dose of 180 mg to 200 mg daily. GCE has also been shown to improve blood vessel relaxation and reduce high blood pressure at a dose of 140 mg daily. Thus GCE has potential for cardiovascular health and maintenance of a healthy body weight.

Low intakes of vitamins and minerals may contribute to weight gain overtime by impairing fat metabolism. For example one study found that zinc, magnesium, vitamin C and vitamin E (one of the fat soluble vitamins)  deficiency were risk factors of higher body weight and central obesity. And some studies have indicated that regular multivitamin use may be associated with a healthier body weight and better appetite control.



Lutein is a type of phytonutrient known as a carotenoid and imparts yellow or orange colour to various fruits and vegetables. A number of studies have shown that higher consumption of lutein rich foods or supplementation with pure lutein can protect skin and eyes from ultraviolet damage and reduce the risk of associated diseases. Lutein has shown particular promise for improving vision and reducing risk of age related macular degeneration. Dietary lutein concentrates in the retina of the eye and protects the macular from light damage as well as reducing oxidative stress and improving visual ability.

The Age-Related Eye Disease study (AREDS) is a large-scale randomized controlled clinical trial that has provided the best evidence to date on vitamin and mineral supplements for eye health. The AREDS demonstrated that a combination of vitamins C, E, beta-carotene, zinc and copper resulted in a 25% risk reduction in progression to advanced AMD over 5 years. A multivitamin providing these nutrients may help maintain visual health alongside a healthy diet and lifestyle.

Low dietary intakes of certain nutrients are particularly common and these play an important role in promoting optimal health, for example:

Suboptimal intakes of folic acid are very common and increasing folic acid intake through dietary supplements may correct megaloblastic anaemia and improve blood levels of homocysteine, a risk factor for age related diseases.

Vitamin D (one of the fat soluble vitamins)

Vitamin D deficiency is a widespread problem and exacerbates osteopenia, osteoporosis, and fractures in adults and has been associated with increased risk of common illness including autoimmune disease, heart disease and infectious illness. To correct and prevent deficiency, experts recommend daily vitamin D supplements.

Vitamin K (one of the fat soluble vitamins)

Vitamin K plays an important role in protection against age related disease such as heart disease and osteoporosis (poor bone density). Intakes of vitamin K are commonly too low among children, adults and the elderly in the United Kingdom.

Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 deficiency is becomes more common with age and vegetarian diets and may have serious consequences. Nutritional Deficiency and suboptimal intakes may have important implications for cognitive and mental health. Supplementation is the preferred means of correcting and preventing B12 deficiency.

Vitamin B6

Suboptimal vitamin B6 status is associated with age related diseases such as impaired cognitive function, Alzheimer's disease and heart disease. The risk of low intakes of vitamin B6 increase with age and may also be low in vegetarian diets.

Higher Vitamin E (one of the fat soluble vitamins)

Vitamin E intake is associated with lower risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, however fewer than 90% of people may be consuming the recommended daily amount. The Linus Pauling Institute recommends a daily supplementation with vitamin E to help combat oxidative stress, lower heart disease risk and promote wellbeing.


Zinc deficiency is common with approximately 1 in 10 people not meeting their recommended daily intake. Even marginal zinc intakes may result in DNA damage and increased oxidative stress. Mild zinc deficiency may exacerbate immune, gastrointestinal, hormonal and mental illness and accelerate age related chronic degenerative diseases.

Vitamin B5 Pantothenic Acid

Pantothenic Acid Vitamin B5 is fantastic for stress, anxiety and energy production.


Mild Iodine deficiency affects approximately 50% of continental Europe and mild iodine deficiency is very common in women living in the United Kingdom. Iodine deficiency can impair thyroid function.

Coenzyme Q10 and Lipoic acid

are potent antioxidant nutrients that have potential benefit for protection against age related degenerative diseases. Although not classically considered essential nutrients, deficiency can occur and use as dietary supplements may help maintain optimal health and wellbeing with age.

Iron Bisglycinate

Arguably the most absorbable forms and gentlest form of iron for energy.

This formula is advanced nutrition at it's best with adequate amounts of all its ingredients.
