Initially bursting onto the scene in 2016, SteelFit has been making quite a bit of good noise recently, and we here at PricePlow have been listening.
Following the dogma “Health is Wealth”, SteelFit is the fruition of a dream once held by a few experienced supplement industry executives – they wanted their company to produce products that they believed in, but also bringing something new to the industry. While this admirable mission is becoming more commonplace these days, there are still some out there who can’t claim this kind of passion and accountability. Therefore, whenever we see it, we appreciate it and definitely take notice on what their supplements can offer!
One thing the line was missing was a full-fledged multivitamin, but that’s no longer the case. SteelFit has addressed this slight gap in SteelFit Steel Multi-V! Being a diet driven company, get ready for a very weight loss friendly multivitamin with a huge emphasis on fighting insulin resistance, one of the most important things you can do for your metabolic health!
Steel Multi-V? If it’s as good as Shredded Steel, then we’ve got another winner…
SteelFit has quite the range of products – we’ve covered both their sleep-enhancing Steel Dreams and their loaded fat-burner Shredded Steel. They’ve been able to cover virtually any potential supplemental need you may have – heck, they’ve even introduced topical fat-burning creams into their line-up. That being said, there was that one major thing absent from their arsenal – a multivitamin! For a company that truly believes in overall health and wellness, a prominent multivitamin is a must-have within their offerings.
Powdered multivitamin = loaded multivitamin
Designed to fill the gaps within your nutrition, this stuff fulfills its purpose, and then some. As we’ve come to expect with SteelFit, this formula is downright loaded – we’re hard-pressed to find any possible nutrient deficiency not covered here. But, this really shouldn’t be much of a surprise, because SteelFit consistently formulates some of the best new products in the game. It’s also important to note that Steel Multi-V is a flavored powder, so you can say goodbye to multi-pill servings! With Steel Multi-V, they’ve delivered a vitamin pack style formula that we’re actually excited to take!
We’re about to plunge into this label, giving you all the details about everything it offers. But first, be sure you’re subscribed to PricePlow so you can get all the SteelFit supplement deals, news, giveaway contests, reviews, and interviews your heart desires!

Steel Multi-V Overview: This vitamin powder covers everything
Imagine, for a moment, your favorite basketball team. Imagine the best defender in the world, a player that is always there to steal a pass, or block a shot, plays for them. This player habitually keeps the opponent from scoring, and even snuffs out potential plays before they unfold. You’d probably be pretty glad you had them on your team, right?
Think of Steel Multi-V as that type of player – it addresses every aspect of health and wellness that a multivitamin should, and even accounts for some areas that others miss! It does so through a combination of 5 matrices, each carrying out their own specific purpose. They are:
- Essential Vitamins and Minerals
- Metabolism Support
- Antioxidant Blend
- Fruit and Vegetable Blend
- Absorption Support
This label is completely transparent, so you know exactly how much of each ingredient you’re getting. In order to encompass the effectiveness of this formula as a whole, we’re going to dissect it complex by complex!
Steel Multi-V Ingredients
Vitamins and Minerals
The list of essential vitamins and minerals that are recommended for daily intake is pretty long; subsequently, there’s a ton of vitamins and minerals in this formula. We’ll cover the importance of each one, but there’s one important thing we’d like to note – unless otherwise stated, there’s at least 100% daily value (DV) of each ingredient here! SteelFit does a pretty good job of including the necessary amounts of each ingredient. There are a few cases where there’s less than 100% DV, which we’ll discuss, but that’s ok (for instance, we don’t want 100% magnesium in a vitamin). Assuming you’re eating a nutritious diet, you’ll likely reach those daily requirements through your food. This is a supplement, after all – it’s supposed to be an aid, not the be-all, end-all!
Vitamin A (as Beta Carotene) – 1800mcg
Right off the bat, Steel Multi-V is hitting us with the all-important fat-soluble vitamin A. Coming from beta carotene here, this vitamin plays important roles in many facets of your health. Vitamin A intake is essential to protecting eyesight, especially as you get older. It also is imperative for maintaining a healthy immune system, in addition to reproductive health. As you can see, vitamin A has quite a wide span of functions within the body, making it an important inclusion on this label!
Vitamin C (as Ascorbic Acid) – 100mg
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin found abundantly in a variety of foods, chief among them oranges and bell peppers. Therefore, it’s pretty easy to get enough vitamin C daily, but its better to be safe than sorry!
This vitamin is famous for its strength as an antioxidant, helping rid the body of free radicals that may bring about illness or diseases. It’s through this effect that vitamin C has earned its reputation as an immune-booster. However, it actually offers some other, more intriguing benefits. At least nine different studies have concluded that vitamin C can lower the risk of heart disease, likely through its antioxidant power. It also helps improve digestion and absorption of different nutrients, specifically iron.
Believe it or not, there was actually some credence to your parents making you take those tasty Vitamin C tablets when you got sick growing up! Now you still get it in delicious powder form!
Vitamin D3 (as Cholecalciferol) – 20mcg
Most of us typically get our vitamin D via sunlight exposure – when your skin gets sunlight, it actually produces vitamin D on its own. But, a lot of unfortunately spend a lot of time inside, and although you can get vitamin D through some foods, the risk of vitamin D deficiency is real. Luckily, we’re getting more than we need from Steel Multi-V!
Vitamin D helps protect bone health, by way of improving the absorption of calcium and phosphorus within the digestive system. While also warding off common illnesses, research has shown that vitamin D may be able to reduce the risk of diabetes, as well (Vitamin D fights insulin resistance). Accordingly, research has also found that the vitamin may be able to aid fat loss, specifically through a calcium-linked appetite suppression and helping keep insulin levels lower so you can return to a state of fat burning if you don’t eat all day long.
Vitamin E (as d-Alpha Tocopheryl Acid Succinate) – 77.8mg
Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin commonly found in topical creams, as it’s benefits in regards to skin health are widely understood. But, many tend to forget the antioxidant strength it possesses, which allows vitamin E to protect vision. similarly to vitamin A. It may even be able to help promote muscular health, something we are never shy of wanting more of!
Vitamin K (as Manaquinone-7) – 120mcg
Vitamin K is yet another fat-soluble vitamin, although it is important in areas unique from other vitamins. It has a prominent role in producing prothrombin, a protein important for blood-clotting and bone health. It’s also shown signs suggesting an effect on cognitive health. If you were curious, most of us tend to get vitamin K through leafy greens, such as kale or spinach.
The B-Vitamins – Thiamine, Riboflavin, Niacin, B6, Folate, B12, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid
Multi-V would be remiss if it forgot about the B vitamins, a group of water-soluble compounds with various functions within the body. Sometimes referred to as the B-complex, this collection of compounds has been shown to boost mood and regulate stress, and is often recommended as a treatment for symptoms of anxiety and depression. However, they are mostly known as key facilitators in converting carbohydrates into usable energy.
Each individual B vitamin is well over its daily recommended intake, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Sure, too much of a good thing isn’t always a good thing. But, when it comes to water-soluble vitamins, the body just expels whatever it doesn’t use up. So, don’t worry about getting too much of any of the B vitamins – your body will max itself out and get rid of the excess! We’re used to this with major vitamin packs, and we continue the tradition of mega-dosing in a powder.
But now for some of the minerals that don’t fit in all of those pill products:
Calcium (as Calcium Carbonate) – 250mg
Calcium is the most abundant mineral within the body, and based on its multifaceted importance, you better be glad that it is – this mineral is involved with everything.
Most of us are familiar with calcium and its integral role in bone growth and health, which has thus made calcium especially important in fighting against things like osteoporosis. It also seems to help regulate hormonal function. Interestingly, however, is the role calcium seems to have in regulating weight. Science has also suggested that the synergistic relationship calcium holds with vitamin D3 may be important in fat loss.
Steel Multi-V has only about 19% of your DV, however. Dairy products are loaded with calcium, so if you have no issues with dairy, you should be covering that other 81% easily. However, if lactose is an issue for you, or your diet regimen restricts dairy intake, making up that ground may be difficult. If this is your situation, an additional calcium supplement may be something you want to look into!
Iron (as Iron Fumarate) – 18mg
Concentrated heavily within red blood cells, iron plays vital roles in regulating healthy blood flow, energy, and mental cognition. Mainly, it helps the body form hemoglobin, a protein within the blood responsible for circulating oxygenated blood. Hemoglobin is essential for proper muscle functioning, as if muscles aren’t getting enough oxygen, they won’t work as efficiently.
The lack of red blood cells or hemoglobin, called anemia, is a significant potential risk of iron deficiency. Believe it or not, iron deficiency is a major issue these days. Most humans get their iron from meat, particularly red meat, which has garnered an undeserved stigma in recent years. With so many people adopting vegetarian/vegan diets, or even as much as swearing off red meat, the risks associated with iron deficiency have never been more prevalent.
Understanding both the widespread nature and associated issues of iron deficiency, this is a dose where SteelFit does not mess around. At 18mg here, your daily iron requirements are met immediately. Even so, though, don’t let that stop you from enjoying a nice steak every once in awhile!
Iodine (from Organic Atlantic Kelp)(Whole Plant)(Ascophyllum Nodosum) – 300mcg
After seeing iodine included in SteelFit Shredded Steel, an addition to a fat-burning product that we’d long been waiting for, we immediately knew that SteelFit understood how important iodine is for human beings.
This essential nutrient has somewhat disappeared from our diets in recent years. Iodine used to be an additive within bread, but has since been replaced by bromine (an iodine competitor!). Table salt still contains iodine, sure, but a lot of people have bought into the trends around using non-iodine containing salts such as “gourmet” sea salts. Meanwhile, our water supplies are loaded with chlorine and fluoride, two other iodine competitors. And nobody’s really eating any small fish or kelp/seaweed in the states. Long story short, we’re becoming iodine deficient and it’s bad news for our bodies!
Despite it being more difficult to get enough of it, the importance of iodine hasn’t wavered – its essential for proper thyroid functioning.
Proper thyroid activity equals proper hormonal function
The thyroid is integral in regulating hormonal function, so you can imagine the types of issues associated with an off-kilter thyroid. Hint: they’re not good! Iodine deficiency has been linked to fatigue, chronic feeling of being “cold”, cognitive issues, and slow heart rates. Because of the relationship that exists between the thyroid, hormones, and the metabolism, iodine deficiency has also been associated with a slowed metabolism (hypothyroidism), which is highly problematic for those looking to maintain a healthy weight.
There aren’t many multivitamins, let alone supplements, that are available that address proper iodine levels. In the sports supplementation industry specifically, we rarely see products tackle iodine deficiency. That being said, SteelFit has used iodine in their products on multiple occasions. Clearly, they agree with us – many of us are iodine deficient, and we need to make sure we’re getting enough of this crucial mineral.
We’re thrilled to see a 300mcg dose here. You do want to be careful about consuming more iodine than this, however – high consumption of iodine can lead to hyperthyroidism, working the thyroid too hard and even causing hormonal suppression. This dose puts you right in the sweet spot, but remember, the old saying still rings true – too much of a good thing is never a good thing!
Magnesium (as Magnesium Oxide) – 100mg
Yet another mineral people tend to not get enough of, magnesium helps execute over 600 cellular functions! It helps protect nerves within the brain associated with development, memory, and learning. Magnesium is so important, that it’s often recommended as a treatment for a variety of ailments, including migraines, depression, asthma, and heart disease.
Like Vitamin D, it’s also critically important in warding off insulin resistance according to several studies on many types of individuals, both diabetic and non-diabetic. Some researchers have called it “one of the metabolically magical minerals”.
Contrary to what you might think, we actually like the 24% DV coverage with this ingredient. Because of the benefits that magnesium can have in regards to sleep, we’d much rather prefer to get the majority of our daily value at night, perhaps in a ZMA (zinc-magnesium) supplement! In addition, too much all at once may send you to the bathroom, so this is a perfect helper dose!
Zinc (as Zinc Oxide) – 15mg
Zinc is a catalyst for various different enzymes, all of which need enough of this mineral to properly function. The processes affected by zinc are seemingly endless – the immune system, your digestive system, and your brain all need it! If all of that doesn’t convince you just how crucial this mineral is, zinc deficiency has even been linked to infertility!
Selenium (as Sodium Selenite) – 100mcg
Selenium mainly operates as an antioxidant, helping fend off oxidative stressors within the body. It’s so effective at this, in fact, that research believes it can be used to boost the immune system and destroy cancerous cells.
What truly separates this mineral, however, is its antioxidant strength in relation to cognitive health. Research has shown that selenium may help maintain cognitive functioning, even promoting cognitive improvement in the eldery! There’s some real potential there, and research is currently getting to the bottom of it!
In the meantime, though, getting enough selenium helps maintain healthy brain functioning. When is that not a good thing?
Copper (as Cupric Oxide) – 2mg
Copper works in tandem with iron to help create red blood cells, and actually helps iron work its wonders elsewhere in the body, too. Essentially, most of the functions of iron pertain to copper, as the body seems to use the two in paired roles.
Manganese (as Manganese Sulfate) – 2mg
While manganese is a trace mineral, meaning you don’t need large amounts of it, the body still needs it. This powerful antioxidant has been shown to affect blood sugar regulation,[36,37] as well as aiding in the metabolization of numerous nutrients.
Chromium (as Chromium Picolinate) – 100mcg
Another trace mineral, chromium too has earned its place in our daily diets. Research has found it to be incredibly important in insulin activity, and thus has proved promising in regards to satiety and hunger regulation.
Molybdenum (as Molybdenum Chelate) – 75mcg
Molybdenum, unlike manganese and chromium, is not a trace mineral. In fact, this essential mineral is found in a number of foods, therefore making it quite difficult to be deficient in. It is a cofactor for 4 different enzymes within the body, all of which help the body rid itself of toxins.
Potassium (as Potassium Citrate) – 100mg
Lastly, our last essential mineral on the label is potassium. This mineral is needed for proper cardiovascular health, muscle functioning, and bone health.
However, Steel Multi-V packs only 2% of your DV, so you need to make sure you’re getting potassium from other sources. Some of our favorite food sources include avocados, spinach, and zucchini, but you can find potassium in many other foods, too.
That’s not all that’s here, though…
Whereas most multivitamins call it a day after the essential vitamins and minerals, SteelFit decides to take it even further. They ask (and answer) a pretty simple question – why just let those ingredients work alone, when there are other potential aids to be had that can help amplify the overall effects?
The first of these 3 additional complex is one most of us will definitely appreciate!
Alpha Lipoic Acid – 50mg
Alpha lipoic acid is an antioxidant housed within the mitochondria, the part of the cell that is mainly responsible for powering your body. Alpha lipoic acid serves as a cofactor for numerous enzymes responsible for these energy-related processes, including calorie expenditure. In fact, research has shown that alpha lipoic acid can help reduce AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) function, which can in response reduce food intake and increase energy expenditure. This is due to AMPK activity being directly correlated to hunger and “wanting” more energy. Basically, alpha lipoic acid keeps AMPK activity low, which helps support satiety and efficient metabolic functioning!
Cinnamon Bark Extract (Cinnamonum Cassia) – 50mg
The presence of cinnamon in our diets has been pretty stable for many years, as the spice finds a ton of ways to sneak into our meals. Not only does it taste good, though, but cinnamon actually has grown a reputation as a powerful herb as well!
Due to its high antioxidant content, cinnamon has powers that extend into functions related to the metabolism. Insulin, arguably the paramount hormone in regards to metabolic health, helps regulate both the metabolism and the body’s blood glucose levels. However, for various reasons, some people develop issues that breeds insulin resistance. It’s not something you want, and is typically seen as a precursor to serious conditions like type 2 diabetes.
Cinnamon helps protect you from developing those issues. Research has shown that it can significantly reduce insulin resistance, and thus greatly lower blood sugar levels. Cinnamon has consistently shown the ability to ward off issues that can seriously mess up your metabolism (and thus your weight!), so it’s definitely welcomed on this label!
Inositol – 10mg
Taking the fight against insulin resistance a step further, inositol finds itself backing up cinnamon here. This carbohydrate has a structure eerily similar to that of glucose, and science is beginning to find that it can mimic some functions of glucose within the body. Specifically, research has found that inositol can mimic certain actions of insulin on metabolic enzymes, which effectively suggests that it can improve insulin sensitivity. That translates to reduced insulin resistance, an effect that further human studies have since supported, albeit at pretty high doses.
With only 10mg of inositol here, we can’t know for sure just how effective it is alone. However, the presence of both cinnamon and inositol can’t be ignored, as they affect the bodily responses responsible for keeping insulin levels regulated!
Boron (as Boron Citrate) – 3mg
While the previous two ingredients interact with the most important hormone in terms of your metabolism, boron works with the second-most important, testosterone and estrogen. While research remains relatively preliminary, boron has been shown to have an effect on how the body produces and uses these two essential hormones. It’s mostly shown a regulating ability, which is important considering that when testosterone and/or estrogen levels get out of sync, so does the metabolism. In order to support proper hormonal production, a little bit of boron can help get the job done!
Vanadyl Sulfate – 0.2mg
Vanadyl sulfate is a precursor to vanadium, a key component of red blood cell formation. Due to its influence on the metabolic breakdown of nutrients, scientists have begun looking into its potential at a finer level. They have reached conclusions that suggest it may be able to mimic insulin, which as we’ve said earlier can lead to improved insulin sensitivity. As encouraging as this may be, not all research agrees, with some studies finding that it may not be effective enough to warrant taking.
If vanadium was the only metabolic support ingredient here, we might be a bit upset. But its not – you’re not depending on it to work alone, but synergistically with everything else in this formula!
Grape Seed Extract (Vitis Vinifera) – 50mg
Grape seed extract kicks of the antioxidant section of the label. While many of the other ingredients here are antioxidants that function in other ways, grape seed extract is here for solely it’s antioxidant powers. It’s pretty potent in this regard, with effects such as lowered low-density cholesterol levels and improved brain antioxidant levels been cited. Like with most antioxidants, grape seed extract isn’t just fixated to one specific area – it aims to get rid of free radicals wherever they may exist. So, on top of those results, we’re sure it can help out in other areas of the body, too!
Resveratrol (Polygonum Cuspidatum) – 10mg
If you spend enough time online, you’ve definitely seen someone citing the health benefits of red wine, suggesting it can boost your health in a variety of ways. Well, the compound within red wine tied to those potential benefits is resveratrol, and research on this antioxidant seems to support the claims made by these novice sommeliers.
Resveratrol seems to be most influential in relation blood pressure, where it’s shown the ability to increase nitric oxide production, which helps lower blood pressure. It’s also proven useful in slowing down cognitive decline, with its antioxidant effects keeping your mind sharp as you age. All of that, along with some potential in improving insulin sensitivity, and that “5oz of red wine a night” suggestion doesn’t sound too crazy, after all!
Astaxanthin (Haematococcus Pluvialis) – 4mg
Working in ways similar to the other antioxidants on this label, astaxanthin is nearly as strong as any antioxidant out there. This carotenoid, whose pigment famously gives salmon their “pinkish” color, can improve blood flow, prevent muscular and skeletal damage, and combat high blood pressure.
It’s worth noting that these doses are all relatively small, compared to what is typically used in research. If you’re aiming to get the maximum effects cited here, you may want to explore other ways you can consume more of these 3 things. That being said, the way each one of these affect different mechanisms within the body are real, so even getting a small dose can prove worthwhile!
Fruit and Vegetable Blend
Broccoli Powder (Brassica Oleracea Italica) – 100mg
There’s a reason why broccoli is abundant in the diets of so many – it’s on of the most nutrient-packed vegetables on the planet. This little tree-looking plant touts a strong nutritional profile – it can reduce inflammation, provide strong antioxidants, and support healthy cognition. We could go on for days about how beneficial broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables are, as there’s so much out there backing up its potential. Any time we can get a bit of those benefits, we’re all in.
NordicCherryⓇ (Bioactive Tart Cherry Extract)(Whole Fruit)(Prunus Cerasus) – 25mg
NordicCherryⓇ is a full-spectrum, highly-bioavailable tart cherry extract from SPECNOVA, a leading biotech company. This patented extract wields all the powers of the fruit, which include improved recovery and brain health support.[64,65]
Watercress Isothiocyanate Concentrate (Nasturtium Officinale) – 25mg
Watercress also possesses a strong nutritional profile, capable of affecting numerous aspects of your health. With a high phenolic and antioxidant content, this vegetable holds many of the capabilities broccoli has.
We’re always told how important it is to eat our fruits and vegetables. Watercress is often touted as the most healthy vegetable, but it’s quite expensive, so many don’t ever try it. Incorporating more of this nutritional powerhouse is rarely ever a bad thing in terms of promoting overall health!
What good is ingesting all of this stuff if your body isn’t truly taking it in? When you’re using a multivitamin, you want to be sure that the body is absorbing the ingredients it contains, otherwise it’s basically useless.
In order to ensure this formula’s effectiveness, SteelFit strategically added an absorption complex. Thanks to the next two ingredients, you can be confident that you’re getting the most out of everything we’ve already talked about!
Bromelain Enzyme 600 GDU/G (from Pineapple) – 50mg
Bromelain, a mixture of enzymes commonly found in pineapples, has began to find its way into supplements due to its potential as in aiding digestion. Powered by a conglomerate of proteases, bromelain essentially helps facilitate different digestional processes via the enzymes it delivers to the stomach. Better digestion means both less discomfort and more efficient absorption!
Black Pepper (Piper Nigrum) Fruit Extract (BioPerineⓇ) Yielding 95% Piperine – 5mg
Black pepper extract, delivered here in the patented-form BioPerineⓇ, is something we see in a ton of supplements these days. It’s justified, too, as research has shown it can enhance the bioavailability in supplemented ingredients. In fact, black pepper extract has been tested almost exclusively with water-soluble and fat-soluble vitamins and minerals, which makes up the majority of this label. When it comes to multivitamins, there may be no place more suited for black pepper to work its magic!
How to Take Steel Multi-V
Steel Multi-V is a comprehensive multivitamin complex that delivers an impressive amount of key nutrients in each serving. One serving daily gets the job, taken preferably with your first meal of the day. Steel Multi-V a powder, so mix one scoop with about 6-8oz of water, and you’re good to go!
SteelFit has even added a bit of variety to this product in terms of flavor. That’s right, this powder comes in different flavors, so make sure you pick the one that best suits your tastes!
Another SteelFit release, and another comprehensive, science-backed, open-label product. Steel Multi-V may have one of the longest labels we’ve seen in a multivitamin in quite some time, but that is in no way a bad thing. All that means is this formula packs virtually everything you want and need in your daily multivitamin. It covers an enormous amount of your daily nutrition, even fortifying areas where some of us tend to have some gaps. Plus, it comes in an easy-to-drink, tasty powder!
An incredibly packed, well-dosed multivitamin that we get to pleasantly sip on?! That definitely beats those run-of-the-mill, 3-pill serving vitamins we see everywhere these days. If you’re in need of a new daily vitamin that absolutely delivers on its promise, look no further than Steel Fit Steel Multi-V!
