Essentials 5 in 1 DR (Delayed Release) is our premier multi-vitamin-mineral rich product. Incorporates the latest scientific research on nutrition and metabolic functions. Individual nutrients are formulated for maximum bioavailability, synergy, hormonal/metabolic activation and antioxidant capacity. Now in delayed release capsules to minimize or completely eliminate the gastric side effects some individuals experience taking a multivitamin.*
Essentials 5 in 1 is a complete multinutrient designed specifically for maximum hormonal and metabolic activation in one bottle, virtually eliminating the need for additional supplemental Vitamin B, Vitamin E, Vitamin A, Vitamin K, and extra minerals.*
Specific features include:
Vitamin Acomplex - Includes a complete spectrum of beta-carotene and mixed carotenoids. It is a completely natural form derived from the pristine seas of the South Pacific.*
Activated B-vitamin complex - Each B vitamin is in its co-enzymated format for optimal bio-utilization. For example, our folic acid is present in Essentials 5 in 1 DR as methylenetetrahydrofolate (MTHFR), rendering this product safe for deficient-methylators. Dosages used eliminate the need for stress-B-complex.*
Vitamin Ccomplex - In a very gentle form for the gastrointestinal system. It is also combined with a full spectrum natural citrus bioflavonoids which optimizes utilization.*
Vitamin Ecomplex - Synergistically active blend of oil soluble Alpha-Tocopherol, Gamma-Tocopherol and Sesame lignans, plus water soluble Vitamin E succinate (d-alpha tocopheryl acid succinate or alpha-TS). This powerful combination downregulates NF-KB, a primary inducer of inflammation, and enhances benefits of hyperthermia treatments. However, Alpha-Tocopherol alone is susceptible to becoming deactivated by free radicals without Gamma-Tocopherol. Gamma-Tocopherol is a more effective trap than Alpha-Tocopherol for reactive nitrogen oxides, which are toxic to the body. And Sesame lignans add to this synergism by their strong anti-inflammatory (i.e., downregulates NF-KB), lipid-lowering and anti-plaque effects.*
Vitamin K2 - Is critical for bone building and breaking apart unhealthy plaque. Essentials 5 in 1 DR and our other multi-nutrient formula Daily Two both contain Vitamin K2, making them the exclusive leaders in the field of multi-vitamin-mineral formulas due to their broad-spectrum mineral-rich, synergistic bioavailability.*
Albion’s TRAACS® Chelated Minerals: A daily serving of Essentials 5 in 1 DR contains twice the amounts of Albion's TRAAC® minerals as found in our Daily Two formula. Clinically proven, chemically validated mineral amino acid chelates. They represent the gold standard in patented, pharmaceutical grade mineral chelates. Every TRAACS® mineral compound is validated and “fingerprinted” to ensure lot-to-lot conformity to Albion’s high standards. TRAACS® mineral amino acid chelates deliver the following measurable results: 1. Highly bioavailable and easily digested; 2. Safe, predictable and effective; 3. Stable in acidic environments; 4. Hypoallergenic, Kosher-Pareve and vegetarian friendly.*
Digestive Enzyme Blend acts as a crucial cofactor in the proper absorption of nutrients.*
Bioperine® has been added because it has been clinically shown to further increase the bioavailability of a wide range of nutrients.*
Standard Dosage: Take four (4) capsules daily in divided doses with meals.
