Info: 240 Tablets (60 Day Supply)
Ultra Preventive X by Douglas Laboratories is a comprehensive, highly-concentrated vitamin-mineral trace element daily supplement containing more than 50 nutritional ingredients, all in a special herbal green food base. Its formula is carefully balanced to provide the essential nutrients for optimal health.
Ultra Preventive X is also a potent antioxidant formula that includes natural beta-carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E, selenium, L-cysteine/ N-acetyl-L-cysteine, lutein, lycopene, red wine proanthocyanidins and select extracts and powders from over 25 fruits, vegetables and herbs. A major advantage over other vitamin/mineral supplements, is the use of the bioactive coenzyme forms of vitamin B6 (Pyridoxal 5-Phosphate), B12 (methylcobalamin) and folate (5-methyltetrahydrofolate), which are better absorbed.
Ultra Preventive X has been named a NutriSearch GOLD Medal of Achievement recipient by the NutriSearch Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements.
FUNCTIONS: 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.
An important feature of Ultra Preventive X is the use of coenzyme forms of B-Vitamins, to ensure absorption by the body. Metafolin, the active form of folate, also called 5-MethylTetraHydroFolate, or 5-MTHF is used, as a high percentage of people cannot absorb the synthetic form of folate (folic acid). Other coenzyme B-Vitamins in the formula include methylcobalamin, the active form of vitamin B12.
Minerals and trace elements are provided in their safest and most bioavailable forms. Ultra Preventive 10's herbal green food base also includes important phytonutrients. Gluten-free grasses and several varieties of microalgae supply.
Aren't all supplements more or less the same?
No. Douglas Laboratories dietary supplements are "professional grade". They offer you superior nutrition, compared to the most popular brands you may find in stores. A great example is Ultra Preventive X, our potent multivitamin formulated according to the latest science to support overall good health. It contains powerful antioxidants with beta-carotene, natural vitamin E, a high-potency complex of B vitamins, calcium, magnesium, and a full spectrum of trace elements, along with a comprehensive green food blend with select extracts and powders from over 25 fruits, vegetables and herbs.
Unlike one of America’s top-selling retail brands, Ultra Preventive X also contains high concentrations of essential vitamins, minerals and other nutrients in safe, optimal amounts.
• Contains a blend of organic fruits and vegetables: one serving provides the ORAC
(antioxidant value equivalent to 4-5 fruits and vegetables)
• Contains folate from Metafolin, a superior form of folic acid that is readily absorbed by the body
• 1000 IU of Vitamin D3 per serving
• Continues to hold the 5-star gold-standard rating in the NutriSearch Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements
Essential nutrition for optimal health. Our most comprehensive multivitamin and mineral supplement in a special green food base includes a variety of organic fruits and vegetables. This unique formula provides extra vitamin D and the body’s preferred form of readily bioavailable folate, Metafolin, adding to the other carefully formulated vitamins, minerals, trace elements and nutrients found in this product. We are proud to announce the availability of Metafolin, the body’s preferred form of folate. Metafolin, also known as (6S)-5-methyltetrahydrofolic acid ((6S)5-MTHF), is the naturally occurring, predominant form of folate, and is directly usable by the body. Metafolin is patented, 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.
