The highest-potency member of Andrew Lessman's family of multi-vitamin-mineral formulas, delivering more than 40 nutrients, including high potencies of all essential vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and carotenoids with the highest standard of purity and mildness.
Andrew Lessman's FOUNDER'S formula is the most comprehensive and the highest potency member of our entire family of multi-vitamin-mineral formulas. Like all our multivitamins, our Founder's is 100% pure and contains no additives of any kind. In short, it provides only the nutrients you desire with no binders, fillers, colors, flavors or additives of any kind. It comes as an ultra-fine powder in small, easy-to-swallow capsules that are guaranteed gentle even to sensitive stomachs. It provides all the benefits you seek without any of the problems normally associated with multivitamins. Our FOUNDER'S formula delivers more than 40 nutrients, including high potencies of all essential vitamins, minerals, carotenoids, phytonutrients and nutraceuticals. It is both the purest and most comprehensive multivitamin, yet also the most mild and gentle. It provides 2000 IU of all-important Vitamin D3, along with high levels of the B-Complex, including 2,000 mcg of Biotin (the beauty vitamin) and 500 mcg of our absorption-protected Methylcobalamin (Natural Coenzyme Vitamin B12), along with 1,000 mcg of our naturally more active Folic Acid as 5-MTHF (5-methyltetrahydrofolate). We also include 1,000 mg of non-acidic Vitamin C, along with high levels of the powerful, targeted protection afforded by key carotenoids, including Lutein (12,000 mcg), Lycopene (12,000 mcg) and Zeaxanthin (6,000 mcg). Founder's also utilizes natural Vitamin E whereas most leading multivitamins do not. FOUNDER'S also includes Andrew's personal, concentrated balance of six vital ingredients, including Coenzyme Q-10, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Resveratrol, Green Tea EGCG, Pomegranate and Citrus Bioflavonoids. Details regarding each of these powerfully protective ingredients follows: Coenzyme Q-10 (CoQ10) – 500 mg. CoQ10 is a powerful protective compound required for all energy production. It is required at high concentrations in key organs (heart, brain, liver and kidneys) to ensure optimum function. Despite its importance, CoQ10 levels decrease with age, stress, medications, poor diet and even physical activity making supplementation essential. Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) – 500 mg. Referred to as the Universal Anti-Oxidant, because it is both water and fat soluble. This allows ALA to protect even hard-to-reach tissues like the brain. ALA promotes the creation of Glutathione, the body's most powerful protective compound. Like CoQ10, ALA declines with age, stress, medications and more making supplementation important. Resveratrol – 200 mg. Resveratrol has long been the focus of extensive anti-aging research. It is among the most powerful protective compounds and associated with the extensive benefits of the Mediterranean diet. Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG) – 200 mg. EGCG from Green Tea is a powerful protective compound that combines centuries of traditional use with decades of compelling anti-aging and wellness-based research. Pomegranate (40% Ellagic Acid and Punicalagins) – 200 mg. Pomegranate has long been referred to as sacred fruit. Unlike pomegranate juice, our formula is standardized to deliver its beneficial compounds without sugar and calories. Citrus Bioflavonoids – 200 mg. Citrus Bioflavonoids, including Hesperidin and Rutin, are powerful protective compounds concentrated in citrus fruit and other healthy plants. They support healthy circulation and enhance the benefits of Vitamin C. Our FOUNDER'S formula also delivers high levels of phytonutrients and protective compounds from nine other established natural ingredients, including extracts of Bilberry, Blueberry, Curcumin, Broccoli, Wasabi, Mustard Seed, Pine Bark, Grape Seed and Apple. Each of these standardized extracts of long-respected natural ingredients has been the subject of extensive scientific inquiry validating their benefits and importance to any comprehensive health and anti-aging regimen. Our FOUNDER'S formula delivers the nutrition you seek without hard-to-swallow and difficult-to-digest tablets. We use only easy-to-swallow capsules containing pure, ultra-fine, additive-free powders to ensure a perfect experience with no stomach upset. Also, unlike typical multi-vitamins that ignore the current science, Founder's provides the most comprehensive list of vitamins, minerals, carotenoids, phytonutrients and nutraceuticals at levels that respect both you and the scientific literature.

I have been taking Women's Founders for over a year and I do see a difference. Well worth the price for the quality and ease of taking the vitamins. I also love that each packet is individually sealed. Easy to throw in my purse or backpack.

I have taken Andrew's products since the 80's. There have been changes throughout the years. I trust him to come up with a mix that will suit my needs. If I want to add something I can always purchase that separately. I really don't feel the need. These are the absolutely highest quality vitamins out there so you cannot go wrong. I love this formulation and highly recommend it.

Love, Love, Love, this product Andrew!
Andrew, this is a wonderful product!!!! I've been taking it for a very long time. Thank you for allowing us to continue enjoying it. Sure hope you never discontinue it. It would be very nice if you could bring it back for those people who were not already on auto-ship for it before. Thank you, Andrew for this and all your other wonderful products. Sincerely, Cynthia

If you have been on this in the past then you will stay on the old formula instead of changing to the new which was welcome news. If I was to add all the individual nutrients it would be more expensive. Love this product.
