Proven Active Ingredients
Organic Greens Blend: Our organic greens blend features a transparently dosed 5-gram blend of organic greens form a combination of nutrient-packed foods including spinach, parsley, kale, barley grass, chlorella, bell pepper, green apple, banana, sweet potato and broccoli.
With high micronutrient and antioxidant content, these foods are high in essential vitamins and minerals like vitamin A and C, which help support immune function, reduce oxidative stress and support energy production.*
Organic Reds Blend: In addition to our greens blend, we’ve included a transparently dosed 2.5-gram organic reds blend containing raspberry, blueberry, strawberry, cherry, pomegranates and cranberry.
Dark red fruits are rich in vitamins, minerals, and polyphenols which may help reduce oxidative stress, inflammation, and exercise-induced muscle damage.*
Together this collection of fruits, vegetables, and herbs from our organic greens and reds blend help inhibit free radical production, optimize cellular metabolic activity, and support nitric oxide levels within the body.*
Kiwifruit Powder:A small fruit that packs a nutritional punch. Its green flesh is rich in micronutrients and antioxidants, including potassium, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, and folate.*
Kiwifruit also supports healthy digestion due to the presence of a proteolytic enzyme called actinidin that can help break down protein.* More specifically, kiwifruit extract has been noted to improve digestion of several common proteins, including cheese, yogurt, beef, fish, and raw eggs.*
DigeZyme® Multi-Enzyme Complex: A proprietary combination of enzymes that help in proper digestion and better absorption of the foods we eat.* This multi-enzyme complex consists of:
- α-Amylase: Breaks down carbohydrates such as starch, glycogen and polysaccharides into smaller units.*
- Protease: Breaks down protein and supports immune function.*
- Cellulase: Breaks down cellulose and chitin. It helps to free nutrients in both fruits and vegetables.*
- Lactase: Breaks down lactose (milk sugar) and useful for lactose intolerance.*
- Lipase: Breaks down lipids and improves fat utilization and also supports healthy gallbladder function.*
Research shows that DigeZyme® can enhance the bioavailability of vital nutrients such as vitamin C and β-carotene, and it can also decrease the pain and tenderness induced by exercise.*
The DOMS decreasing effects of DigeZyme® may be due to its ability to reduce levels of two biomarkers of muscle damage in creatine kinase and lactate dehydrogenase.*
LactoSpore® (Bacillus coagulans, MTCC 5856): A commercial probiotic preparation containing Bacillus coagulans, MTCC 5856. Clinical research notes that supplementation with LactoSpore® may promote gut health by significantly decreasing the severity of symptoms associated with various GI disorders and promote a higher quality of life compared to placebo.* LactoSpore is Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS).
As a dietary supplement, add one serving (one level scoop) of Steel Greens™ to a shaker cup or blender filled with 8-12 fl. oz. of cold water or your favorite beverage (adjust for taste preferences) and mix thoroughly. Consume one serving per day or as directed by your healthcare professional.

Vitamin E: Fat-soluble vitamin noted for its distinct antioxidant activities which limits production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and protects cells from the damaging effects of free radicals.
Vitamin K: Fat-soluble vitamin required to synthesize proteins involved in blood clotting. Vitamin K also impacts bone metabolism and regulates blood calcium levels.
Vitamin C: Water-soluble vitamin required for the biosynthesis of collagen, protein metabolism, and the absorption of non heme iron.
Thiamine: Also known as vitamin B1, this water-soluble vitamin plays a critical role in energy metabolism, ultimately impacting the growth, development, and function of cells.
Riboflavin: Also known as vitamin B2, riboflavin serves as a precursor to two key enzymes involved in energy metabolism and cell growth. This B-vitamin also helps maintain normal levels of homocysteine in the body.
Niacin: Also known as vitamin B3, niacin serves as the precursor to NAD where it helps convert food into useable energy as well as assist in the repair and replication of DNA.
Vitamin B6: Water-soluble B vitamin involved in cellular energy production, the biosynthesis of neurotransmitters, gluconeogenesis, immune function, and regulation of homocysteine levels in the blood.
Folic Acid: Functions as a coenzyme involved in the synthesis of DNA and RNA and assists in the conversion of homocysteine to methionine (an essential amino acid used in protein synthesis).
Vitamin B12: Water-soluble vitamin required for proper red blood cell formation, neurological function, and DNA synthesis.
Biotin: Helps convert carbohydrates, proteins, and fats in the food you eat into useable energy. This B-vitamin also impacts cell signaling, gene regulation, and histone modification.
Pantothenic Acid: Also known as Vitamin B5, this water-soluble B-vitamin is needed for the production of coenzyme A (CoA) and acyl carrier protein — two compounds essential for fatty acid synthesis and degradation.
Calcium: Most abundant mineral in the body vital to bone health. It is also involved in nerve transmission, muscle function, vascular contraction and vasodilation, and, intracellular signaling.
Magnesium: Cofactor in 300+ biochemical reactions in the body, including protein synthesis, blood glucose control, muscle contraction, nerve impulse conduction, and blood pressure regulation. Magnesium also supports transport of calcium and potassium ions across cell membranes.
Zinc: Essential mineral affecting DNA synthesis, cell division, protein synthesis, immune function, and wound health. Zinc also supports normal growth and development.
Selenium: Trace mineral which serves as a constituent of proteins involved in DNA synthesis, reproduction, cognitive function, thyroid hormone metabolism, protection from oxidative damage, and immune function.
Copper: Essential mineral required for the production of red blood cells, absorption of iron, regulation of heart rate and blood pressure, development and maintenance of bone, and immune system activation.
Manganese: Mineral needed for wound healing as well as bone development and maintenance. Manganese also serves as a building block for superoxide dismutase (SOD), one of the most powerful antioxidants in the body.
Molybdenum: Serves as a cofactor in the production of numerous essential enzymes in the body involved in converting sulfite to sulfate and xanthine to uric acid as well as the break down aldehydes.
Iodine: Trace mineral essential for synthesis of thyroid hormones triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4), which significantly impact metabolism and protein synthesis.
Potassium: Electrolyte that maintains intracellular fluid volume, regulates blood flow, and supports nerve transmission, muscle contraction, and kidney function
Iron: Required for the formation of hemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells that transfers oxygen from the lungs to the tissues. Iron is also needed for growth and development, hormone production, connective tissue synthesis and normal cellular functioning.

Vanadium: involved in the formation of red blood cells, metabolism of protein, carbohydrates, and fats, and may enhance the effects of insulin.
Alpha Lipoic Acid: organic compound found within every cell of the body that functions as a powerful antioxidant. ALA also helps digest, absorb, and produce energy and even exert a nootropic effect in the brain.
Cinnamon Extract: pungent spice packed with antioxidants noted to have potent anti-inflammatory properties. Cinnamon has also been documented to improve insulin sensitivity, lower blood sugar levels, and exert anti-diabetic activity.
Inositol: sometimes referred to as vitamin B8, inositol isn’t actually a vitamin, but a type of sugar that serves as a major structural component of cell membranes. This versatile nutrient also influences the action of insulin and various neurotransmitter systems, including serotonin and dopamine.
Boron: multi-faceted micronutrient affecting a diverse array of processes in the body including the growth and maintenance of bone, wound healing, magnesium absorption, increasing levels of antioxidant enzymes, reducing inflammatory markers, and modulating the body’s use of important hormones such as testosterone and estrogen.
Astaxanthin: carotenoid naturally occurring in seafood, similar in structure to beta-carotene. It functions as a powerful antioxidant in the body and has been noted to protect DNA in the eyes from UV light as well as reduce blood sugar levels and oxidative stress.
Resveratrol: powerful phytochemical found in grapes documented to lower blood pressure, improve lipid profiles, combat inflammation, and increase insulin sensitivity.[12,13] Some additional research even suggests that the polyphenol may increase longevity.
Grape Seed Extract: rich in antioxidants, polyphenols, anthocyanins, and flavonoids that may help protect against oxidative stress, tissue damage and inflammation. Grape seed extract has also been found to improve blood flow, wound healing, and skin quality.
Fruit and Vegetable Blend: We’ve all been told about the importance of eating enough fruits and vegetables as children, yet few of us achieve the recommended 3-5 daily servings of these micronutrient powerhouses. SteelFit Multi-V™ includes a diverse fruit and vegetable blend consisting of broccoli concentrate, watercress, and Nordic Cherry® to supply a vast spectrum of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and beneficial phytochemicals to support health and wellness.
Absorption Support: A multivitamin/multimineral is only as effective as your body’s ability to absorb and utilize the micronutrients contained in it. To support ingredient bioavailability and absorption, SteelFit Multi-V™ includes both BioPerine® and Bromelain — a digestive enzyme naturally occurring in pineapple noted for its anti-inflammatory actions.
As a dietary supplement, mix one serving (one level scoop) of Steel Multi-V™ with 6-8 fl. oz. of cold water (adjust for taste preferences) and consume with a meal such as breakfast every day. Drink at least 6-8 glasses of water daily. Some individuals may experience a harmless tingling, flushing effect on the skin after consuming the product, which is attributed to Niacin.
