Lindberg has been making vitamins since 1949 and they know how to do it right. Varsity Pack 2 was originally designed for college and pro athletes. Over the years, many teams have won championships using these packs in sports such as football and basketball. And multiple Olympic gold medal winners spanning several decades have called it their multi-vitamin of choice. Varsity Pack's success and broad appeal has now spread from athletes to all individuals desiring a strong foundation to their health and fitness program.

7 easy-to-swallow, small capsules per packet
Varsity Pack 2 is a 7-capsule-per-day formula in smaller capsules than the slightly lower potency Varsity Pack 1. These vegetarian capsules are more easily absorbed than tablets.
Here's why the Lindberg Varsity Pack 2 is superior:
Full array of energizing B vitamins
Varsity Pack includes a full array of B vitamins, which are vital for energy and heart health. Plus, you get a healthy dose of pantothenic acid, known as the “anti-stress” vitamin.
Only the “active” form of vitamin B12 is used for enhanced bioavailability
Instead of regular vitamin B12, only the premium, more expensive “active” form of B12 (methylcobalamin) is used. Many people have a difficult time converting “regular” B12 into its “active” form because they lack the intrinsic factor in their gut to effectively utilize B12. That's why many people attempt to boost their energy levels with B12 shots.
Vitamin D3 1,600 IU is essential for bone health and overall health
Research shows that we need more vitamin D than originally thought. This is especially true during the winter months and for those who get minimal sun exposure, use sunscreen or live in northern latitudes. Varsity Pack 2 includes 1,600 IU's of the superior form of D, called vitamin D3. Research has shown vitamin D facilitates calcium absorption and helps strengthen bones and teeth. It also supports joint and heart health, plus immune system and long-term overall health.*
Calcium and bone health minerals
Most 1 or 2-per-day formulas have virtually no calcium or magnesium. To get a significant amount of these minerals, you need to take a 5-per-day or more formula. Here's where vitamin packs like the Varsity Pack 2 really shine. In each packet, you get 500 mg of calcium including calcium citrate, a highly bioavailable form of calcium.
Magnesium is an important cofactor
This electrolyte mineral plays an important role in bone mineralization, the regulation of calcium balance, cardiovascular health and nerve impulse transmission.* Magnesium is also a cofactor in about 300 enzymatic reactions. Some of these enzymes affect energy production via glucose metabolism and the synthesis of protein and fats.*
Vitamin K1 and K2 support bone and arterial health
Most formulas only include vitamin K1 (Phytonadione). However, new research shows that vitamin K2 also does great things for your body. Half of the vitamin K in the Varsity Pack 2 is K1 and the other half is K2, the more expensive and more biologically active form. The two forms of vitamin K2 that are included are menaquinone-7 and menaquinone-4. They each act differently in the body and support arterial health as well as bone health.*
To support strong bones, calcium, magnesium, vitamin D3, zinc and the trace mineral boron provide a superior synergistic blend compared to the levels found in traditional 1-per-day formulas.*
Patented mineral chelates for those who exercise
The Varsity Pack 2 has premium-grade, extraordinary minerals. These include several patented Albion® amino acid-bound minerals, which are more bioavailable than non-chelated forms. They support rehydration, endurance, energy and muscle growth.* If you exercise, play sports or want the highest quality minerals in your formula, then the Varsity Pack 2 is for you.
Chromium for blood sugar balance -- Only the patented, niacin-bound ChromeMate® brand of chromium is used. It supports healthy blood sugar levels already within the normal range.*
Zinc for healthy skin, muscles and hormones -- Zinc is an important mineral found is almost every cell in the body. It is required for the proper functioning of thyroid, sex and growth hormones, as well as for insulin. Zinc also promotes healthy skin and helps maintain normal taste and smell acuity. It supports the body's natural defenses and plays a critical role in the body's antioxidant network.*
Antioxidant-rich core of protection
Athletes, those who exercise, and those living in smog-filled areas need to concern themselves with the damage free radicals can do to them. That’s why Varsity Pack 2 includes a robust antioxidant core of only the best ingredients to help quench free radicals.*
Vitamin A – We include the more expensive, natural form of beta-carotene, which includes other natural carotenoids such as alpha-carotene, zeaxanthin and lutein.
Vitamin C -- Each packet includes a healthy dose 1,000 mg of vitamin C, which includes 500 mg of the buffered, non-acidic, calcium ascorbate form of vitamin C for sensitive stomachs, and 500 mg of ascorbic acid. It also has citrus bioflavonoids to support vein and capillary health.*
Vitamin E / Gamma -- Only the most bioavailable, natural d-alpha form of vitamin E (200 IU) is used. Plus, you get a gamma-tocopherol complex including delta and beta-tocopherol to combat oxidative stress and to help you recover after exercise.
Selenium -- The trace mineral selenium is essential to health. It has antioxidant properties that help prevent cellular damage from free radicals. Selenium has well researched studies behind it, touting its protective benefits. The Varsity Pack 2 contains 200 micrograms, the exact amount shown in clinical studies to have benefits. In fact, it is one of the few minerals that the FDA allows a health claim for which reads as follows: Selenium may reduce the risk of certain cancers. Some scientific evidence suggests that consumption of selenium may reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer. However, FDA has determined that this evidence is limited and not conclusive.
Varsity Pack 2 also includes
Alpha Lipoic Acid -- This fat and water-soluble antioxidant helps quench the free radicals your body produces during exercise. It provides antioxidant protection inside the cell and extends the life of vitamins C and E.*
Grape Seed Extract -- Grape seed extract is an excellent source of antioxidants that benefit the cardiovascular system.*
Lutein -- This yellow carotenoid, found in high concentration levels in the macula, supports eye health.*
Lycopene -- This red carotenoid may support overall health.*
Biotin and silica promote healthy hair, skin and nails
How you look on the outside is largely a reflection of your internal nutrition status. That's why biotin (a B-vitamin), the trace mineral silica (from bamboo extract), zinc and vitamin A are included in the Varsity Pack 2. They support healthy hair, smooth, clear skin and strong nails.*
