Douglas Laboratories Ultra Preventive X is the most comprehensive multivitamin and mineral supplement with a special organic fruit and vegetable blend. This unique formula provides an antioxidant equivalent of 4-5 servings of fruits and vegetables, along with bioavailable forms of vitamins, minerals, trace elements and beneficial nutrients.
Studies show that a high percentage of adults in North America and other developed areas eat less than the minimum daily allowance of 10 or more essential nutrients. Adequate amounts and proper balance of these nutrients are needed not only for maintaining good health, but also for the dietary management of the body's structure as well as the optimum functioning of its various systems, including the immune and gastrointestinal systems.
Ultra Preventive X has been carefully developed to contain the right proportions of vitamins, minerals, trace elements, and other nutrients without danger of toxic build-up or other side effects. Each ingredient is selected in consideration of its absorbability, competitive relationship with other nutrients, allergenic potential, and long term safety. Certain nutrients such as beta-carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E, and B-complex vitamins are included in high-potency amounts because of the vital roles they play in antioxidant protection, energy production, the maintenance of healthy blood cells, the nervous system, hormonal balance, and more. Minerals and trace elements are provided in their safest and most bioavailable forms.
Ultra Preventive X contains Metafolin®, a patented, natural form of (6S) 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF). 5-MTHF is the naturally occurring, predominant form of folate commonly found in cells and is essential for overall health, as it participates as a cofactor in a reaction that involves the remethylation of homocysteine to methionine. Unlike synthetic folic acid, 5-MTHF can be used directly by the body, without the need for an additional conversion via the enzyme (5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR)). In certain populations, the body's ability to convert folic acid to 5-MTHF by use of this enzyme may be compromised due to genetic differences. Metafolin® contains only the S isomer of 5-MTHF and has been shown to be the only form of folate to be able to cross the blood-brain barrier.
Additional vitamin D3 (also known as cholecalciferol) has been added to this formula as numerous scientists now feel that supplementation with vitamin D at levels greater than previously thought necessary is critical to helping maintain overall health.
Ultra Preventive X includes important phytonutrients. Greens and several varieties of microalgae supply chlorophyll, carotenes, B-vitamins, and trace elements. Fruits and vegetables in powder form provide naturally occurring nutrients and antioxidants to help fight free radical damage and support cellular health. Cruciferous vegetables, broccoli and cauliflower, offer protective sulforophane compounds known for their ability to induce protective phase 2 liver detoxifying enzymes. Lutein, lycopene, and zeaxanthin are carotenoid antioxidants known for ocular health and other healthy aging parameters. Enzymes such as betaine and bromelain aid in digestion of foods and contribute to healthy inflammatory levels within the body. Bioflavanoids (including hesperidin and rutin) and proanthocyanidins support and enhance the activity of vitamin C, and are known for their ability to help support the health of the body's capillary system and connective tissues.
Ultra Preventive X tablets may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to consume the essential nutrients for optimal health.
