In this Rainbow Light Men’s One Review, we will explore all of the most recent trends for the supplement as it has been changed somewhat recently.
Thus, in this article, we will look at all the claims made for it, we will explore all of the ingredients that it uses, as well as we’ll address the efficacy of the vitamin and mineral forms as they are not all equal. And last, of all, we’ll also explore what most reviews choose not to – the additives.
All this to make as accurate of an assessment about the Rainbow Light Men’s One (Multivitamin) as humanly possible.
Meaning, my goal here is to create a review like no other – one that you can get all possible insights from. One, after which you don’t have to go on to other reviews and explore more. Therefore, if by any chance there is a section or aspect I haven’t covered but you’re interested in, let me know. And I’ll add that to the review.Click Here To Keep On Reading ↴
Rainbow Light Men’s One Review – The Overview
Rainbow Light Men’s One Multivitamin is all about being that comprehensive, once-daily nutritional support for men’s health and vigor offering a variety of vitamins, minerals, and additional beneficial substances.
When looking at the description page for the supplement, I would not consider it a lengthy one [R].
Overall, they’re pretty concise providing you with the ability to go through all the information in just a few moments, while not appearing to be completely vague, futile or blank [R].
In essence, that page provides all of the basic insights, as well as supplement facts [R].
About the supplement, they themselves claim that Rainbow Light Men’s One Multivitamin provides comprehensive nutrition and protection. Moreover, they say that each tablet contains key ingredients that support heart, prostate, muscle, and sexual health, help bolster immunity and increase overall energy, stamina, and stress management [R].
But above all, they glorify the fact that the supplement has been made or as they put it ‘tailored’ to men’s nutritional needs. Thus, also claiming that the men’s vitality blend that the product contains is exactly what men need to be completely healthy [R].
Then there’s also claims for digestive health – ‘Gentle on the stomach with digestive support blend’. And the idea on Purity Safeguard, which for them mean that the Men’s One has been made with natural, purity tested ingredients, without artificial preservatives, colors, flavors or sweeteners, while also containing zero Eggs, Fish, Gluten, Milk/Dairy, Peanuts, Shellfish, Tree Nuts, and Wheat [R].
Other than that, and interestingly enough, in the past, I have written about the supplement proclaiming to be the #1 Natural Men’s Multivitamin Brand. Which they no longer do.
And that I do respect.
Overall, I fell superficially the supplement is very likable. But is it actually able to deliver solid value?
Well, we’ll look into that next.
Vitamin-Wise It Has Suffered Pretty Significant Cuts
In the past, Rainbow Light Men’s One has proved to be a pretty diverse multivitamin. However, it has lost some of that with its most recent remake.
While in the past it contained absolutely every single vitamin you can think of that is crucial for health, now it’s no longer that way. No longer do we have the preformed form vitamin A.
Now, vitamin A you’re only getting from Beta-Carotene, which has proven to be quite an unreliable source of that active vitamin A. This is mainly due to its poor conversion rates. On top of that, it is speculated that quite a number of people might not have the gene necessary to even make that conversion [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
So, for those, all they can hope for is some antioxidant activity from that Carotenoid (forget about other Carotenoids, however, crucial, this supplement offers none).
When it comes to vitamins like B1, B6, B9, C, and Choline, these are in forms that are most often found in multivitamin supplements and supplements in general. However, as common as they are, these particular vitamin forms are not that well absorbed [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Thus, they will be way less effective in providing the actual vitamin to your body, thus, potentially fewer benefits.
On the other hand, we have vitamins like B2, B3, B7, B12, D3, and K1, all of which are arguably the most effective and overall the best forms for these particular vitamins [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
That said though, B2, B3, B7 (while solid forms) are pretty standard across supplements. And thus, only really the efforts for B12, D3, and K1 must be commended.
On that note, there are two more vitamins that the Rainbow Light Men’s One Multivitamin has and that do ask for a slightly longer analysis.
Vitamin B5 being labeled as Calcium Pantothenate doesn’t really say much. This is because there are two forms of Calcium Pantothenate: Calcium-D-Pantothenate and Calcium-L-Pantothenate. Just saying Calcium Pantothenate could mean any one of these forms. However, the difference between these two is huge, because the “L” form is only about half as effective as the “D” form [R, R, R, R, R].
As this is clearly not shown on the label of the Rainbow Light Men’s One, it is far more than just likely that this supplement contains the “L” form (the ineffective form). I mean, is there like any other reason to not otherwise label it clearly? I doubt that.
Vitamin E as D-Alpha Tocopheryl Succinate is a solid form to have. But Vitamin E is much more than a single tocopheryl form. In fact, there are in total 8 forms of Vitamin E, all of which should ideally be a part of the supplement [R, R, R].
Therefore, overall having only one form of Vitamin E is not your best bet.
One other thing, I haven’t really addressed yet is the vitamin amounts. I feel it used to be somewhat solid.
However, after the remake, they pretty much offer every single vitamin in fewer amounts. Which given that these amounts were kind of on the scarce side already, is far from ideal.
I mean, they’re fine if you’re obsessed about Percentage Daily values. But do know that these values represent how much of a certain nutrient you need to not develop a deficiency disease. Which is quite the opposite of being all about promoting good health and well-being.
Minerals Have Also Received Significant Cuts
I guess it all goes downhill for the Rainbow Light Men’s One Multivitamin. Also, the minerals are overall worse off than they were before the remake of the supplement.
We mainly have the same minerals (Calcium, Zinc, Selenium, Copper, Manganese, Chromium, Molybdenum) with the addition of Iodine and a few improved forms.
Whereas the mineral amounts are pretty much cut in half for most of them.
As for Zinc, Selenium, Copper, Manganese, and Molybdenum, they have stayed of solid forms, while the Chromium has seen an improvement from Chromium Amino Nicotinate to Chromium Picolinate. The latter essentially is the best form for Chromium supplementation possible [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
On that note, the Rainbow Light Men’s One also used to contain some Magnesium, which is no longer there. But it’s not a big loss as it was of pretty useless form, which essentially guaranteed no benefits.
So, overall, it’s way worse than it used to be also when it comes to minerals.
Was A Masterpiece; Now Just Another Among The Rest
Beneficial substances also used to create quite a buzz.
Well, not after the remake of the supplement. It’s nowhere near as impressive as it used to be.
As of now, the Rainbow Light Men’s One offers generally rather scarce amounts of Inositol, Citrus Bioflavonoids, Organic Rainbow Vibrant Foods Blend, Men’s Vitality Blend, and the Digestive Support Blend.
The last three of this list have many ingredients within them. Therefore, I have used the names provided on the label for easier reference. I will be looking into more detail regarding them though. But first, let’s get Inositol and Citrus Bioflavonoid Complex out of the way.
Inositol greatly supports brain function. In that regard, have you ever had or do you experience often anxiety or panic attacks? It helps with that. Have you got or are you on the edge of having depression? It helps with that too. Are you in constant stress? It will help with that also. In fact, it helps also to heal conditions like Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) [R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Citrus Bioflavonoids is like the second line of defense for your body, Vitamin C being the first. This is a substance found in most fruits and vegetables. It provides amazing antioxidative abilities (antiviral, antiallergic, antitumoral, antiplatelet, antihypertensive and overall anti-inflammatory abilities) [R, R, R, R, R].
Thus, in essence, it is the substance, which helps to fight off most of the bad stuff your body might encounter. And other than that, Citrus Bioflavonoids are believed to improve heart, as well as skin and blood vessel health [R].
Next up is Organic Rainbow Vibrant Foods Blend. Essentially, this is a blend (100 mg) that is comprised of organic extracts of various fruits, plants, and roots.
The biggest name among those is Organic Spirulina. It is a blue-green alga, which is one of the most healthy plants on the planet. And it is also one of the most researched plants on the planet. In that regard, the benefit-list for this miraculous algae is pretty much inexhaustive [R, R, R, R, R, R].
The only downside to this is that we’re not informed as to how much exactly of it is in that blend. Thus, it might as well not provide us with any benefits at all (if, for example, there’s just too little of it).
If it were enough, however, the potential benefits stretch all across helping detoxify heavy metals from the body, improving immunity and helping to fight off cancer, providing incredible amounts of nutritional content (additional vitamins, minerals, proteins, amino acids and essential fatty acids), helping to improve blood sugar levels, lowering cholesterol levels, and being an amazing antioxidant among other benefits [R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
That said, there’s one thing you can be pretty sure of with such a blend – it will offer plenty of dietary fiber. And that stuff can help you in eliminating toxins from the body, promoting weight loss, reducing the risk of cancer, improving gut health among exhibiting other benefits [R, R, R, R, R, R].
Then we have the Men’s Vitality Blend that is a 51-milligram combination of Organic Chlorella, Organic Green Tea (leaf) extract, and Lycopene.
Chlorella similarly as the Spirulina is considered as one of the world’s superfoods. It can benefit you by detoxifying heavy metals and radiation, lowering of cholesterol and blood sugar levels, supporting the immune system, helping against cancer, as well as being extremely abundant in various amino acid contents [R, R, R, R].
Green Tea Extract is one that is very high in anti-oxidants. Thereby it promotes liver, heart, and brain health, lowers blood sugar levels, benefits recovery after exercise, as well as performance, and lowers the risk of some cancers among other benefits [R, R, R, R].
Whereas Lycopene has been known for slowing down and preventing all kinds and types of cancer, it improves bone, skin, and heart, it protects DNA, as well as it’s just a great antioxidant overall. And sure, it does have also other benefits [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
And finally, there’s the Digestive Support Blend. The name of which describes it perfectly. It is all about providing you all kinds of enzymes, as well as some amounts of probiotics for that improved digestive health and nutrient absorption (both through food and this supplement) [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Before we finish off this section, a little more insight into the Bacillus Coagulans. It’s an extremely beneficial probiotic bacteria. It is way more potent and superior than all of those in yogurt findable nonsense probiotics [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R]
Furthermore, it elevates the levels of other beneficial bacteria in the stomach, reduces the stomach pain, decreases the “bad” blood cholesterol levels, enhances protein absorption, decreases bloating, constipation, vomiting, and diarrhea and has other health benefits [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
And that wraps up all the additional beneficial substances added to the supplement, as well as their potential benefits.
However, good the benefits may sound be mindful of the fact that all of these are in rather scarce amounts more often than not. Thus, the benefits can be there. But they might as well not be there. Given the way the blends are not exactly straightforward about their components, it essentially is a gamble.
As For Additives, It’s Better And Still Harmless
Before the remake, the Rainbow Light Men’s One Multivitamin was of all harmless additives.
And thank God, also after the remake it still is one without the harmful ones. However, they have been able to reduce the additive count.
So now, we are looking at 4 instead of 7 additives that pose a little-to-no threat to health (of course, the possibility of an allergy can’t be completely ruled out, yet that’s rather unlikely).
The 4 are Microcrystalline Cellulose, Hypromellose, Medium-Chain Triglycerides (MCT), and Inulin.
Microcrystalline Cellulose and Hypromellose both are alterations of cellulose. Cellulose is one of the most abundant substances on earth found in wood and all plant structures. These two additives are believed to be safe to intake even in huge amounts. And even in huge amounts, one will either encounter no side effects or for a few some bloating, constipation, or diarrhea might happen [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Nevertheless, MCT is extremely beneficial to consume as it has quite a number of benefits to its name. Protected brain function, lowered cholesterol levels, boosted energy levels and improved weight management are just some of them [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Inulin is a soluble fiber that stimulates the growth of the beneficial bacteria in the gut (typically human gut contains 15 thousand to 36 thousand species of bacteria). It is also a common substance in many different fruits, vegetables, and herbs [R, R, R, R, R].
There are few possible side effects for this substance, which most of the time come in a form of stomach problems. Thus, some bloating, flatulence, diarrhea and abdominal discomfort may occur. Supposedly, if one does encounter these side effects drinking plenty of water can probably cure this [R, R, R, R, R, R].
However, Inulin is not particularly known for its side effects. It’s known for its benefits that are quite many. By stimulating the growth of beneficial bacteria, the substance improves digestion, immunity, and overall health, relieves constipation, improves calcium absorption and has other benefits [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
So, overall, as I already mentioned before. All solid, all harmless, to say the least.
Final Thoughts on Rainbow Light Men’s One Multivitamin
The Rainbow Light Men’s One used to be somewhat of a solid supplement.
It was by no means perfect, however, it was pretty reliable and did somewhat subscribe to the best practices when it comes to vitamin and mineral amounts, as well as the added beneficial substance I feel were way better.
Ultimately, I do think that Rainbow Light Men’s One is an option if you’re really tight on a budget. Mainly because it does offer some amounts of nutrients while being completely harmless what regards to the additives.
That said, however, with just a little higher investment you can get a supplement that essentially is infinite times better and will be way more attractive in terms of overall benefits to your health.
See, for example, the #14 on the best multivitamin supplements list. A list that has been made by evaluating every single multivitamin supplement that I was able to find on the internet (read more here).
