Do you think we are crazy for believing your multivitamin should have clinically proven dosages instead of “token ingredients” that look good at first glance but don’t actually provide enough mg’s to do anything?
We didn’t think so either and that is why our superfoods based multivitamin is scientifically formulated with
Alpha Wolf Nutrition’s Next Level Superfoods Multivitamin

“Are we crazy for believing your multivitamin should be based on more than just some archaic 1970s list of vitamins and minerals?”
The Next Level Difference
It’s astonishing how the vast majority of multivitamin products on the market today have barely changed since the 1970s.
While there are specific vitamins and minerals which are hard to come by in today’s highly processed and soil depleted diets, most multivitamins pack in overdosed, underdosed, and absolutely not needed ingredients.
In fact, many multivitamins use the label “proprietary ingredients” so they can easily hide how little (or in some cases how much!) of a particular ingredient is in it.
On top of that “men’s” and “women’s” specific multivitamins have become all the rage but if you look closely at the ingredients label you will typically find that the gender-specific herbs added to the multi are in such low doses it won’t do anything for you and are often not even something you want to take unless it’s for a very specific reason.
Our research team at Alpha Wolf Nutrition went through hundreds of hours of research, reading cutting edge reports and dissecting case studies to formulate our Superfoods Next Level multi.
Every vitamin and mineral you will see in Next Level is given in what we believe is the optimum dosage given the typical Western diet, to optimize your health.
And unlike most companies which put in token amounts of superfoods or hide behind “proprietary labels” we jam-packed Next Level with powerful amounts of nutrient goodness and are proud to show you exactly how much of every single ingredient you are really getting!
In fact, I personally challenge you to show me another multivitamin on the market today that comes anywhere close to delivering the extremely high amount of nutrition and quality that we do.
Lead Product Developer
Vitamin C (from Acerola Cherries) – 125 mg
Vitamin C is plentiful in a wide variety of foods (such as spinach) not just oranges and extreme deficiency is very rare.
With that said, mild deficiency is a little more common and vitamin C is an extremely powerful antioxidant that is great for your skin and good for your heart.
And if you perform any type of hard physical exercise such and weight lifting or running, your body may perform better with a little bit of supplementation. (1)
We derive our vitamin C from Acerola Cherries so you know you are getting a high quality and natural form.
Vitamin D3 (as Cholecalciferol) – 24 mcg
Due to concerns over skin cancer and long office hours that keep us indoors much of the day, vitamin D deficiency now affects upwards of 77% of people in the United States. (2)
As vitamin D plays a crucial role in our hormone production, healthy bones and much more it is crucial we get an ample amount of D in our system.
However, there has been a growing trend to recommend extremely high doses of vitamin D over the last few years but research is starting to show us that extremely high doses actually have a negative affect on our health rather than a positive one. (3)
We provide 24 mcg of vitamin D in Next Level which is 120% of your recommended daily intake and is also well within limits considered safe.
Vitamin K (MK-7) – 78 mcg
We are extremely proud to be one of the few multivitamin makers that puts vitamin K as “MK-7” in our multivitamin.
Because in general we eat far less fermented foods today than we did even just 50 years ago and our bodies don’t do a great job of storing K2, deficiency in this extremely crucial vitamin is becoming more and more common.
MK-7 is a form of K2 found in fermented foods and has been shown in studies to be well absorbed by humans. (4)
Unfortunately, not only do most multivitamins not include vitamin K at all but most of those who do use phytonadione, a form of K1 which is found in plenty of western foods. In fact, K1 makes up about 75 – 90% of all vitamin K consumed by humans. (5)
MK-7 may support bone, heart and brain health but is very rare in the typical Western diet. In fact, a recent study showed that people with higher intakes of vitamin K2 are 52% less likely to develop artery calcification and had a 57% lower risk of dying from heart disease. (6)
We are proud to say that we provide 78 mcg or 65% of your recommended intake of vitamin K2 as MK-7.
Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine HCl) – 2 mg
For years it was believed that B6 deficiency was a rare occurrence, however, more recent research is starting to show its beginning to become a problem. (7)
B6 is responsible for over 100 different enzyme reactions within the human body so it is crucial you get an adequate dose of this vitamin everyday as it cannot be stored in the body.
Vitamin B12 (Methylcobalamin) – 2 mcg
Most people are well aware of the importance of B12, however, many people do not know there are two different types used in supplements.
Cyanocobalamin is chemically synthesized version (actually made with cyanide) that is not found in nature (8) but because it is cheaper to manufacture than Methyclobalamin, it’s pretty common to find it in multivitamins.
Once Cyanocobalamin is taken, the body must covert it to an active form and discard the cyanide.
In contrast, Methylcobalamin is a natural and active form so is readily absorbed without having to go through a conversion process and has no chemicals to need to discard.
Methylcobalamin is also the form needed for your nervous system to function properly! (9)
Calcium (Carbonate) – 100 mg
We all know that calcium is needed for strong bones and a healthy heart.
It may also help protect against cancer, diabetes and high blood pressure. It is also crucial for healthy cell function, nerve transmission and hormone secretion.
The typical Western diet, however, may be leaving you short with your daily intake goals. (10)
There tends to be quite a bit of controversy over why exactly this is and according to many in the health community, dairy products may actually be part of the problem rather than the solution.
Exactly why calcium tends to run low in the Western diet may be up for debate but that you need to get an adequate amount of calcium each day for optimum health, is pretty clear.
Iodine (from Kelp) – 252 mg
Iodine may be one of the most underrated minerals you should be supplementing with. According to Dr. David Brownstein, whose work largely focuses on iodine, in over 6,000 patients tested to date, 96% have shown to be low on iodine! (11)
Iodine comes from our soil but due to rampant soil degradation we are simply not getting very much of it these days.
In addition to that, chemicals known as “Halogens” and include fluorine, chlorine and bromine are frequently pumped into our water supply.
In fact, in modern society we are in a constant bombardment from dangerous chemicals whether it be from water, deodorant, shampoos, clothing dye, you name it.
Iodine may help remove toxic halogens and heavy metals from your body. (12)
In fact, it is the only known substance which can force excretion of some toxic halogens such as bromide and fluorine from your body, as it binds to and flushes them out via your urine. (12)
It is so powerful at helping flush toxins from the body it that the United States as well as several other countries actually keep a stockpile of potassium to distribute in case of nuclear attack!
We include 250 mcg (168% RDI) of iodine naturally sourced from sea kelp in our Next Level Superfoods multivitamin.
Magnesium (from Citrate) – 200 mg
Magnesium is directly involved in more than 300 processes within the human body. It affects our hormones, our sleep, our cardiovascular health… the list goes on and on.
Because of modern soil degradation we are seeing escalating and rampant deficiencies in magnesium across the board.
In fact, it is estimated that nearly 70% of of Americans are mildly deficient (13). And the older you get, the more magnesium your body actually needs!
We proudly formulate a whopping 200 mgs of magnesium into our Next Level Superfoods Multi which is more than 2X what many big brand names will give you.
Zinc (Oxide) – 11 mg
Zinc plays several roles in the human body including learning and memory, wound healing, regulation of the immune system and hormone balance.
A zinc deficiency can decrease androgen receptors while simultaneously increasing estrogen receptors and it could even lead to the conversion of testosterone to estrogen. This is clearly bad news if you are a man but it can be equally devastating to the proper hormone balance for women as well.
It’s believed that around 2 billion people world wide are currently zinc deficient (14) but the reality is this may be an extremely conservative assessment.
In the typical Western diet, we eat around 10 mg of zinc a day from our food (we need to eat 11 mg) but realistically we are not going to absorb 100% of that.
Consider the human body contains 2,000 – 3,000 milligrams of zinc) mostly in the adrenals, brain and eyes) but since the majority of zinc is locked within our cells and not free within the blood stream, blood tests for deficiency can be terribly inaccurate.
We include 11 mg of Zinc which is 100% of your daily RDI.
Chromium Picolinate – 102 mcg
Chromium Picolinate has been touted for many benefits including weight loss but the truth is most of those claims are inconclusive with conflicting evidence throughout the various studies.
However, Chromium does play an important role in the metabolism and storage of protein, fat and carbohydrates. At the same time human absorption of chromium in the intestinal tract may be as low as 0.4 – 2.5%. (15)
And if you exercise, are under stress or consume simple sugars (including most breads), you are probably at the lower end of that spectrum. The older you get the more likely you are to be deficient as well.
Some supplement companies have cherry picked data and give pretty high doses of Chromium. The truth, however, is that doses over 400 mcg per day may cause genetic damage. (16)
Next Level Superfoods Multivitamin provides you with 36mcg of Chromium which is 102% of your RDI and well within extremely safe limits.
Potassium (Chloride) – 99 mg
Potassium is not included in most multivitamins but it should be because every single cell in the human body actually requires potassium to function and yet according to Michael Greger M.D. FACLM, 98% of American diets are potassium deficient! (17)
The honest truth is that we would have liked to put more than the 99 mg of potassium in Next Level Superfoods Multivitamin, however due to some FDA guidelines even straight potassium pills are limited to 99 mg per serving.
With that said spinach, beets and pomegranate are some of the most potassium dense foods on the planet and all contain more potassium than bananas!
Naturally we feature all 3 of those superfoods in our multivitamin and will talk about them next.
Beet Root Extract 4:1 – 750 mg
You can’t turn on the tv anymore without seeing a tv ad for beet supplements or hearing a new report on the health benefits of beetroot.
Beets have been credited with helping everything from the heart to blood pressure, diabetes, dementia, protecting your cells from damage, increasing blood flow and improving athletic performance.
One of the reasons beetroot is such a powerful superfood is because it is so rich in nitrates which the body converts into nitric oxide which may help increase circulation. (18, 19, 20)
Superfoods Next Level multivitamin gives you a 4:1 concentrate of beetroot extract which is equivalent to 3,000 mg!
Pomegranate Extract 4:1 – 750 mg
Pomegranates are one of the most antioxidant rich foods on the planet scoring an incredible 10,500 on the Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) chart which measures total antioxidant capacity. (21)
That is about 3X more antioxidant power than blueberries which score 3,200.
Like beetroot, pomegranate is also a rich source of nitrates which has been shown to increase nitric oxide levels and enhance athletic performance. (22, 23)
Raw Organic Cacao – 500 mg
Raw Organic Cacao or “raw dark chocolate” was considered by the ancient Inca to be the “drink of the gods” because they new just how incredible this superfood is far before modern science confirmed it.
Now ground breaking studies have shown cacao may help
Asparagus Extract 10:1 – 500 mg
Asparagus has a remarkable set of health benefits and nutrients including a rich source of rutin (32), a plant flavonoid possessing strong anti-inflammatory properties. Rutin, also enhances the permeability of capillaries and fortifies blood vessels, to prevent them becoming weak and leaking.
Rutin can also help increase blood flow by reducing blood viscosity to prevent hardening of the arteries, lower cholesterol, and ease high blood pressure to maintain good cardiovascular health (33, 34).
Some other health benefits of asparagus include
In our Superfoods Next Level multivitamin you get 500 mg in a super concentrated 10:1 extract, equivalent to 5,000 mg of asparagus extract.
Kale Extract 5:1 – 500 mg
Kale is one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet and is power packed with vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, antioxidants and flavonoids like Quercetin and Kaempferol. (42)
Some of the other health benefits of Kale include
Our Superfoods Next Level multivitamin gives you 500 mg of 5:1 concentrated Kale extract which is equivalent to 2,500 mg!
MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) – 500 mg
MSM, also called Methylsulfonylmethane is a naturally occurring substance and the third most common nutrient found in your body. It has a remarkable range of health benefits that make it absolutely essential for optimum health (51).
MSM is an organic compound commonly used to lower inflammation, enhance immune function, relieve joint pain, and help restore gut health.
The reason so many benefits are attributed to the MSM supplement is because MSM provides biologically active sulfur (52), which is the fourth most plentiful mineral in the body and needed for many different critical bodily functions every single day.
Another fantastic benefits is that MSM can help reduce the symptoms of seasonal allergies and keep them under control by inhibiting your histamine response (53).
Sprouted Broccoli Seed – 400 mg
Broccoli contains an incredible amount of nutrients and is absolutely great for your health on several levels.
Sprouted broccoli, however, ramps up the health benefits to a whole new level!
Broccoli sprouts have very high levels of glucoraphanin, a glucosinolate precursor to sulforaphane (10). Sprouts can contain between 10 to 100 times the amount of glucoraphanin than found in adult broccoli. (54)
Besides enhancing joint health, sulforaphane has also been found to activate enzymes needed to remove disease-causing agents from the body. This process is a built-in defense mechanism activated by relatively tiny quantities of isothiocyanates like sulforaphane that stimulate your body’s natural disease-fighting power. (55)
Spinach Leaf Extract (4:1) – 400 mg
You already know spinach is one of the worlds most healthy foods but you may not know that recent research shows positive benefits to consuming spinach for muscle mass, strength and recovery times. (56, 57, 58)
Spinach is also rich in chlorophyll!
Chlorophyll is a great source of nutrients and antioxidants all on its own and our bodies use it at a molecular level to build new red blood cells. Chlorophyll is also rich in enzymes that may purify the blood by flushing out carcinogenic (toxic) substances. (59)
Brown Seaweed Extract (standardized to 5% fucoxanthin) – 400 mg
Seaweed contains an almost unreal set of vitamins, minerals (including iodine), proteins, phytonutrients, antioxidants, fiber and polysaccharides.
Seaweed also contains a particular carotenoid called fucoxanthin which has 13.5 times the antioxidant capacity as vitamin E (60) and has been shown in a recent study to protect cell membranes better than vitamin A. (61)
Fucoxanthin has also been shown to
The clinical doses of fucoxanthin range between 2.4 – 8 mg, however, fucoxanthin does not appear to be easily absorbed by the body.
In our Next Level Superfoods multivitamin we standardize our 400 mg of brown seaweed to contain 5% fucoxanthin which means you are getting 20 mg of fucoxanthin per serving!
Grape Seed Extract (95% Polyphenols) – 400 mg
Grape Seed Extract has been shown to reduce blood pressure (63, 64), lower total cholesterol (65, 66, 67) and decrease whole body oxidation (68, 69, 67).
Also, extremely important for overall health and athletes as well is that grape seed extract appears to increase blood flow pretty notably (70, 71).
Much of these benefits have been attributed to the high concentration of polyphenols within grape seed.
We standardized the grape seed extract in our Next Level Superfoods multivitamin to contain 95% polyphenols!
Organic Garlic Bulb – 350 mg
Garlic is one of the most incredible, studied and proven superfoods you can supplement with.
Studies have shown garlic to help
Alpha Glycerylphosphorycholine (Alpha GPC) – 300 mg
Alpha GPC (alpha glycerylphosphoryl choline), is a molecule that functions as a ready source of choline; an essential nutrient. Alpha GPC is a natural compound found in the healthy brain (83).
Alpha GPC delivers choline to the brain and helps your body produce the critical neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which is what produces its many benefits.
People with low acetylcholine levels can experience muscle weakness and significant cognitive problems (84).
Alpha GPC easily crosses the blood-brain-barrier, unlike other popular choline supplements on the market (85). This is why it’s attracted the attention of athletes, students, and people in professions where peak mental performance is essential.
It’s so effective that the medical community is using it for the treatment of memory disorders like Alzheimer’s disease (86).
A cohort study involving healthy participants found that higher choline intake was linked with much better mental performance. The cognitive abilities assessed included verbal memory, visual memory, verbal learning, and executive function. (87)
A 2015 study compared Alpha GPC to caffeine with participants in their twenties who all took the same math test to test the effects each substance had on mental performance.
Test were accurately completed almost 20 percent faster in subjects who received 400 milligrams of Alpha GPC compared to those who took 200 milligrams of caffeine. The group using caffeine also reported significantly more nervousness compared to the Alpha GPC group. (88)
In addition to the incredible brain boosting ability, Alpha GPC has also been shown to dramatically increase strength, growth hormone and fat burning! (89, 90)
Alpha GPC is very expensive to manufacture and of this writing there is no other multivitamin on the market we are aware of which includes it in the ingredients.
Alpha Wolf Nutrition is proud to say we give you 300mg of Alpha GPC in each serving of Next Level Superfoods Multivitamin.
Green Tea Extract (4:1) – 150 mg
Green Tea is well known for it’s bioactive compounds that may improve health including its ability to potentially reduce fat (91, 92), increase blood flow (93) and increase VO2 max (94).
One of the less known potential benefits though is an increase in cognition!
Although the exact reasons for the increase remain unclear, multiple studies have now concluded there is a link between supplementing with green tea extract and brain power. (95, 96)
Researchers in that 2nd study had the following to say
“The present study shows that green tea extract enhances functional connectivity from the parietal to the frontal cortex during working memory processing in healthy controls.
Interestingly, this effect on effective connectivity was related to the green tea induced improvement in cognitive performance. Our findings provide first insights into the neural effect of green tea on working memory processing at the neural network level, suggesting a mechanism on short-term plasticity of interregional brain connections.”
There is also a little bit of naturally occurring caffeine in green tea and caffeine is a well known brain stimulant which can improve cognition.
In our Next Level Superfoods multivitamin we concentrate our 150 mg at 4:1 meaning you are getting the equivalent of 600 mg of green tea extract per serving.
Theacrine (as Teacrine®) – 100 mg
Theacrine (as TeaCrine) is a remarkably effective and natural energy booster that offers all the benefits of caffeine (plus a few more) without the jitters.
A randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled study (the gold standard of research) found that theacrine can significantly approve alertness levels – and they used brain waves measurements (EEG) to confirm it! (97)
Theacrine has also been shown to increase dopamine levels and dopamine is associated with feelings of happiness, contentment, motivation, and focus. It’s involved in many brain pathways and plays a critical role in functions like movement, sleep, learning, mood, memory, and attention. (98)
The findings also indicate that theacrine increased activity in the region of the brain associated with pleasure and reward. (99)
L-Theanine – 100 mg
L-Theanine is an amino acid that is not typically found in diet and is considered a non-essential amino acid. However, research suggests it has some incredibly powerful cognitive benefits!
According to two recent studies, L-Theanine may be very effective at promoting a more relaxed state. (100, 101)
Research also shows L-Theanine may greatly improve quality of sleep. (102, 103)
At the same time L-Theanine has been shown to increase attention and reaction time (104) and can help improve cognitive performance and alertness even further when combined with caffeine. (105)
BioPerine® (Black Pepper Extract) – 10 mg
It’s absolutely astounding that most multivitamin manufacturers put such little attention into helping your body absorb the nutrients.
After all, it isn’t just about how many nutrients you give your body but how much you can actually absorb and utilize that really matters. This is often referred to as “bioenhancement”.
At Alpha Wolf Nutrition we took our Next Level Superfoods multivitamin a step further and included 10 mg of BioPerine which has been shown in multiple case studies to increase the bioavailability of many nutrients with one study pointing to a whopping 2000% increase! (106, 107, 108, 109, 110)
