Ghost Multi Levels Up Your Micronutrient Intake

At the beginning of 2020, Ghost launched Ghost Greens, their first supplement developed for health and wellness.. Ghost Greens combines a total of 19 greens and reds, along with the clinically-studied dose of Spectra, prebiotics, probiotics, and BioCore Optimum Complete digestive enzymes.

Ghost Greens Ice Tea Lemonade

Who knew greens could taste this good!

The label design ( nothing short of artwork) refreshing flavors, and formula helped make the product a huge hit. On top of that, Ghost partnered with One Tree Planted, a non-profit organization that supports reforestation issues around the world. For every tub of Ghost Greens they sell, a tree will be planted in California or Australia.

A few months after launching Greens, Ghost released another health and wellness supplement, Ghost Glow. It’s designed to improve the appearance of your skin, balance hormones, and provide anti-aging benefits. It didn’t take long before the Ghost Greens/Glow combo became a favorite go-to health supplement stack. While Glow and Greens are phenomenal, PricePlow is excited to announce that Ghost is expanding their health/wellness line again with Ghost Multi!

Ghost Multi: A Multivitamin Fit for a Legend

Since the beginning of the year, PricePlow has seen a huge increase in the demand for well-formulated health supplements. Several brands that primarily focused on sports performance started offering products that support various health issues, including those that affect immune, digestive, cardiovascular, and skeletal systems.

After the massive success that Ghost experienced with Ghost Greens and Glow, co-owners Dan Lourenco and Ryan Hughes decided it was finally time to unleash Ghost Multi.

Ghost Multi Front

Ghost Multi raises the bar for multivitamins.

Like every other Ghost supplement, Ghost Multi features a hand-crafted label with a creative graphic design. But what makes this product really stand out, in our opinion, is its impressive ingredient profile. It covers all of your micronutrient needs with highly bioavailable forms of 21 vitamins and minerals.

Ghost also includes three trademarked ingredients that PricePlow has not yet covered on the blog:

  • PhytoServ
  • Lutemax 2020
  • EVNolMax

Last but not least, Ghost Multi includes 5 milligrams of black pepper extract (as Bioperine) to further increase the uptake of each ingredient.

Key Features of Ghost Multi

Instead of going over every vitamin and mineral in Ghost Multi, we’re going to highlight what makes the supplement stand out from the competition.

Here are seven key features of Ghost Multi:

  1. Optimized bioavailability

    Ghost Multi Hype

    Get in your daily micronutrient targets with Ghost Multi!

    Bioavailability refers to the proportion of the ingredient that the body can properly uptake and utilize. PricePlow discusses the importance of bioavailability nearly every time we review a supplement because it’s essential for optimal results. If your body fails to absorb a sufficient amount of an ingredient, it just gets excreted, thus wasting your money.

    Unfortunately, a large percentage of multivitamin manufacturers release products containing cheap forms of vitamins and minerals with low bioavailability, which means you can actually become deficient if these are your main supplemental sources of micronutrients. Luckily, you don’t have to worry about this issue with Ghost Multi because the company placed a huge emphasis optimizing bioavailability.

    Ghost achieved this in two primary ways:

    1. Using the highest bioavailable forms of each ingredient
    2. Adding in the clinically-studied dose of Bioperine (black pepper extract)

    The real amino acid chelate system

    Here’s an example of how the vitamins and minerals in Multi are of superior quality.

    Albion Minerals Logo

    Albion Minerals is a leader in developing highly bioavailble forms of minerals to use in various supplements,

    On the label, several minerals are accompanied by the acronym TRAACS, which stands for “the real amino acid chelate system.” Albion Minerals developed TRAACS to improve the bioavailability of minerals like zinc, copper, and manganese.

    TRAACS is a patented process designed to improve mineral absorption by binding them to essential compounds that the body absorbs better. More often than not, the binding compound is the amino acid glycine (hence the name zinc bisglycinate chelate). Studies have shown that compared to forms like zinc oxide and zinc gluconate, zinc bisglycinate has superior absorption in the small intestine. [1]

    The power of Bioperine

    Bioperine,a trademarked form of black pepper extract developed by Sabinsa Corp., is standardized to contain 95% piperine, which is the primary bioactive constituent. Thanks to its ability to enhance ingredient absorption, you can find Bioperine in a variety of supplements, from pre-workouts to multivitamins.[2-4]

    Bioperine

    Bioperine is the trusted, trademarked form of black pepper extract that promises 95% or greater piperine, the part of black pepper with all the activity!

    More research is needed to fully understand Bioperine’s mechanism of action, but it’s believed to inhibit numerous enzymes, such as P-glycoprotein and CYP3A4, decreasing the rate of glucuronidation and boosting the body’s thermogenesis.[2,3]

    Also, Bioperine has been shown to enhance the uptake of fat-soluble and water-soluble vitamins, curcumin, CoQ10, resveratrol, iron, and selenium.[2,4] Ghost uses 5 milligrams of Bioperine to ensure that you’re getting the most out of Ghost Multi!

  2. Vegan friendly (VegD3)

    As we highlighted in the introduction, Ghost Multi is vegan friendly because they use veggie capsules and VegD3 to supply you with 50 micrograms (2,000 IUs) of vitamin D. VegD3 is certified organic vitamin D3 that’s sourced from 100%, non-GMO algae. Furthermore, VegD3 ingredients are registered with the Vegan Society and the Non-GMO Project; and it’s halal, and kosher certified.[5]

    All VegD3 ingredients are produced in compliance with the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) and under cGMP/HACCP quality standards.[5] Ghost specifically chose to use vitamin D3 over vitamin D2 because studies have shown that D3 is significantly more effective than D2.[6] A vegan-friendly source of vitamin D is essential for people who are deficient, those who can’t get enough from sunlight, and for those who don’t eat fish or other animal products.

  3. Lutemax 2020

    Lutemax 2020 is an award-winning marigold extract from OmniActive Health Technologies.[7] It’s formulated to promote eye health, cognition, and overall well-being by enhancing the eye-brain connection.

    Lutemax 2020 LogoLutemax 2020 contains the three primary macular carotenoids: lutein, RR-zeaxanthin, and RS-zeaxanthin.[7] Each macular carotenoid absorbs different wavelengths of light. Thus, when used in combination, they absorb a broader spectrum blue light and offer more protection to retinal tissue.[7]

    Lutein and zeaxanthin may also provide extra cognitive benefits since they readily cross the blood brain barrier and are heavily involved in memory and processing information.[7]

    Lutemax 2020 has been scientifically proven to increase serum levels of lutein and zeaxanthin in just two weeks, enhance markers of visual performance, decrease symptoms of prolonged blue light exposure (eye strain, headaches, and fatigue), reduce stress and cortisol levels, and improve both cognitive function and brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF).[7]

    Lutemax 2020 is an ingredient that PricePlow doesn’t see in multivitamins very often. But, considering how much people stare at screens (phones, laptops, tablets etc.) on a daily basis, which emit harmful blue light, we appreciate that Lutemax 2020 is included in Ghost Multi.

  4. PhytoServ

    PhytoServ

    Ghost Multi delivers two servings of veggie phytonutrients with PhytoServ!

    PhytoServ is a proprietary blend of powdered plant extracts from FutureCeuticals. It was developed so that supplement companies can list phytonutrient content and serving claims.[8] For example, each serving of Ghost Multi delivers two servings of veggie phytonutrients. To the best of our knowledge Ghost Multi is one of the first multivitamins to use PhytoServ, however we’ve seen other brands include it in greens powder.

    PhytoServ is available in three variations: veggie blend, fruit blend, and medley blend. Ghost Multi contains the veggie blend, which consists of broccoli sprout, onion extract, tomato, broccoli, carrot, spinach, kale, and Brussels sprouts.[8] Since the PhytoServ veggie blend is rich in antioxidants, it helps boost your immune system and reduces oxidative stress induced by free radicals.[8]

  5. EvNolMax – supplies all eight forms of vitamin E

    Ghost Multi is one of the only multivitamins that includes all eight forms of vitamin E (alpha-, beta-, gamma-, and delta- tocopherol, and alpha-, beta-, gamm-, and delta-tocotrienol).[9]

    Ghost Energy Citrus Sun

    Energize your ambitions with Ghost Energy.

    Vitamin E is a fat soluble vitamin that acts as a potent antioxidant, thus it prevents oxidative stress, protects cell membranes, and regulates platelet aggregation.[9] Furthermore, vitamin E expresses anti-cancer and anti-cardiovascular disease properties, boosts your immune system defenses, and reduces the risk of developing cataracts and Alzheimer’s disease.[9]

    Tocopherol and tocotrienol both have a chroman ring as the head of their chemical structure, however they’re differentiated by their side chains. Tocopherol has a saturated side chain, whereas tocotrienol has an unsaturated side chain.

    This is why tocotrienol is known as unsaturated vitamin E. Despite these slight structural differences, tocopherol and tocotrienol carry out different functions. So it’s great that Ghost Multi is supplying all eight forms for maximal benefits.[10]

    For vitamin E, Ghost Multi uses EvNolMax from ExcelVite. It’s a water dispersible, all-natural, full spectrum tocotrienol/tocopherol complex extracted from the red palm fruits. EvNolMax is Non-GMO, kosher, and halal certified. In addition, the palm tocotrienol complex is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the FDA.[10] EvNolMax is rich in vitamin E and contains other phytonutrients, including phytosteroids, co-enzyme Q10, carotenoids, and plant squalene.

  6. High vitamin C content

    Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin that plays an important role in the immune system by serving as a powerful antioxidant. Research has shown that vitamin C can help increase the activity of numerous cells involved in your innate and adaptive immune system.

    Ghost Amino Iced Tea

    Ghost Amino is refreshing, delicious, and promotes recovery.

    A study from Nutrients noted that vitamin C:

    • Increases phagocytic cell activity
    • Is needed for apoptosis (programmed cell death induced by natural killer cells to eliminate those infected by bacteria or virus)
    • Decreases necrosis/tissue damage
    • Enhances proliferation and differentiation of T-cells and B-cells
    • Supports the epithelial barrier
    • Acts as a cofactor for monooxygenase and dioxygenase enzymes, which contribute to the synthesis of collagen, carnitine, catecholamine hormones[11]

    Due to vitamin C’s many essential roles,Ghost ramped up the dosage to 500 milligrams per serving, which is 556% of the daily value. Although we have seen this high of a dosage in immune system supplements, it’s quite rare to see it in a comprehensive multivitamin.

  7. MK-7 Menaquinone (Vitamin K2 source)

    Vitamin K is a fat soluble vitamin that’s primarily found in leafy green vegetables, eggs, meat, liver, and fermented foods. Two forms of vitamin K are naturally occurring:vitamin K1 (phylloquinone) and vitamin K2 (menaquinones, MK-n). Vitamin K1 is mostly present in leafy green vegetables, whereas vitamin K2 is in animal products and fermented foods. The two main forms of vitamin K2 that are used in dietary supplements are MK-4 and MK-7.

    Studies show that the MK-7 found in Ghost is easy to absorb and effectively raises vitamin K2 serum levels, whereas MK-4 has little to no effect on serum levels.[12] Therefore, when looking for a vitamin K2 supplement, make sure that the source is MK-7 or else you’re wasting your money and won’t get the benefits you’re expecting.

Ghost Sets The Standard For Multivitamins

In the supplement industry, Ghost is known for collaborating with some of the most popular brands in the world and releasing fun flavors like Sour Patch Kids, Warheads, Chips Ahoy, Nutter Butter, Welch’s Grape Juice, Bubblicious, and Swedish Fish.

Ghost SPK Bundle

The best is yet to come from Ghost.

Ghost started out as a company that focused strictly on sports performance with protein powder, pre-workouts, and amino acids, but they’ve drastically expanded their reach into other categories.

This year, Ghost has placed a big emphasis on health/wellness with the release of three high quality supplements: Ghost Greens, Ghost Glow, and Ghost Multi. However, they didn’t just blindly put out these supplements to make a few bucks. The company spent months perfecting their formulations, flavors, and packaging to really stand out amongst the fierce competition that exists in the health/wellness industry.

It didn’t take long for Ghost to dominate the greens powder and beauty/detox categories. And we wouldn’t be surprised if the Ghost Multi takes off as well. Every year, Ghost does bigger and better things, so make sure to subscribe below to stay up to date with a brand that’s changing the industry.
