NUTRITION IS A MUST WHEN IT COMES TO SELF-CARE
As the demand for natural products rises, women are seeking products that can help them with multiple concerns. We are happy to partner with Movita Organics for our Mega Beauty Box Spring 2018 Edition, to bring you their One-A-Day Multivitamin created by film and TV producer, author turned women’s health advocate and Spike Lee’s wife, Tonya Lewis Lee. Read all about what makes this supplement a must-have and get Lee’s tips on living a healthier life.
How did the brand get its start?
Movita is founded by Women’s Health Advocate, Entrepreneur, Producer, Writer, Mother and Wife of iconic Spike Lee. Tonya Lewis Lee created Movita as a tool to help women live their best lives. The journey to Movita began with Tonya’s, children’s picture book Please Baby Please, which has been read by millions of families across the globe. Because she told a story about the day in the life of a healthy baby, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health(HHS) sought her out to partner with them on raising awareness around women’s health. She became the spokesperson for the A Healthy Baby Begins With You campaign. For over a decade, Tonya has been speaking to women across the country about what they want and what they need to live healthy active productive lives. Those conversations led her to the desire to create effective tools to help them achieve their optimal health. After talking with Robert Sires, former president of vitamin manufacturer Unipharm, she realized that a quality supplement could be one such tool towards a positive difference in women’s lives. Tonya couldn’t find an existing product that met the criteria she wanted: completely clean, organic, easy to take, and effective. So, she gathered a team to create one.
What’s the inspiration for naming the company Movita?
“Movita is a play on the name of my husband’s movie, Mo’ Better Blues…Movita is about More Vitality”, says Tonya Lewis Lee.
Tell us about the importance of taking vitamins.
“I think we are all trying to figure out how to live our healthiest lives. Taking vitamins can be one step in an overall healthy lifestyle…vitamins can ensure that there is a baseline of nutrition…but fundamentally, taking vitamins can ensure a baseline of nutrients and remind the person taking them that this is ONE step towards a healthy day”, continues Lee.
Should vitamins be taken with food?
Generally, traditional vitamins are recommended to be taken with food not to upset your stomach, but we felt compelled to create Movita to give women a cutting-edge, powerful product to support their wellness. Motiva is different from many other supplements, even other organic vitamins, because of our proprietary scientific process. We use whole food ingredients that are individually grown and cultured in a cutting-edge probiotic fermentation system to ensure maximum absorption of nutrients. Due to this unique process, Movita vitamins can be taken on an empty stomach without food.
When is the best time of day to take vitamins?
Due to B-complex, known to give an energy boost, included in the formulation of Movita, we recommend to take Movita vitamins in the morning.
Can you combine other supplements with your One-A-Day Multivitamin?
You can combine Movita vitamins with other supplements; however, one tablet of one-a-day Movita supplement provides 100% or more of RDA for many nutrients in just one daily dose. You should consult your physician to determine if you need to take any additional supplements.
If someone is new to vitamins, how should they incorporate taking them into their lifestyle?
Because Movita is a one a day and can be taken on an empty stomach, we urge people to begin the day with their multi-vitamin and a glass of water. We specifically designed the bottle so that people would feel comfortable leaving it out so you see it and remember to take it first thing in the morning. Our intention has been to make taking Movita easy…first thing in the morning, one tablet and you are done for the day.
Since Movita is made from organic ingredients, tell us about the importance of choosing those ingredients.
Movita is specifically formulated to support optimum health for women. All ingredients are converted into a whole food formulation by our exclusive culturing process that removes impurities and leaves behind a food-based vitamin or mineral. We formulated Movita to contain17 or more vitamins and minerals with RDA of greater than 100%, including vitamins A, B-1, B-2, B-6, B-12, C, D3, E, K-1, niacin, folic acid, and biotin. The ingredients included in the Movita formulation are known to address the specific needs of women: breast and reproductive health, bone density, heart health, digestion, energy, immunity, and stress reduction. It also includes probiotics, which are vital for good health.
What can we expect after taking Movita and how long before we feel the results?
Every body is different and results may vary. Some of our customers report feeling boost of energy and mental clarity within first two months of using Movita.
What’s next for Movita?
We are coming soon with Prenatal, Post-natal, Beauty and D3 that will support women’s health and beauty needs
Our customers, who purchase the Spring Limited Edition Box, will get a 7-Day Sample Pack in their monthly box. What is the one thing that you’d like to leave them with?
While we are thrilled that your customers get a change to try Movita for 7 days, we would say that it takes a little longer than a week to really experience the full benefits…and as we know the key to a healthy lifestyle is persistent consistency. 7 days is just a beginning, we hope they come back for more!
