Why Supplement?

To correct nutrient deficiencies and/or make up for poor dietary choices:

  • Modern diets are devoid of adequate daily nutritional requirements
  • Nutrient deficiencies make us prone to infections, obesity & disease
  • Helps overcome effects of poor eating habits

To replenish what is missing in our foods (vitamins, minerals, enzymes, friendly bacteria, and antioxidants):

  • Depleted soils, pesticides, and refining processes lower nutrient content in food
  • Processing, transporting and storing foods reduces nutrient content even further
  • High quality plant enzymes, whole food vitamins, and chelated minerals are necessary to replace vital nutrients the body needs

To provide our bodies with the nutrition necessary to combat today’s environmental stresses:

  • Inadequate chemical disposal and environmental waste increase health stress
  • Chemically treated food can lead to disease & premature aging (free radical damage)
  • Increased electromagnet fields (microwaves, cellular phones, computers) can weaken immune system
  • Supplementation with antioxidants gives us the ammunition to fight back

To meet the higher nutritional needs of today’s lifestyle:

  • The rigors of chronic stress compromise bodily function and can deplete vital nutrients
  • The use of oral contraceptives, heavy exercise, alcohol consumption, certain drugs, pregnancy/lactation, and other activities in today’s busy lifestyles, all increase the level of stress
  • Lifestyle stress causes depletion of nutrients
  • To decrease your risk of chronic disease and reduce health care costs
  • Degenerative disease comprise the top 4 causes of death in America
  • Americans averaged more than $3,000 per person on health care in 1993
  • Supplementation can help to overcome nutrient depletion from lifestyle stress, decrease the risk of chronic disease and significantly reduce health care costs

Ultra Preventive® X   (Multivitamin/ Mineral Supplement)

Douglas Laboratories® is proud to announce that Ultra Preventive® X now contains Metafolin®, a patented, natural form of (6S) 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) as well as 1,000 IU of vitamin D3 per serving. 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.

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’s herbal green food base also includes important phytonutrients. Glutenfree grasses and several varieties of microalgae supply chlorophyll, carotenes, B vitamins, and trace elements. Cruciferous vegetables (broccoli and cauliflower) provide protective sulforophane compounds known for their ability to induce protective phase 2 detoxifying enzymes.

Ultra Preventive® X tablets may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to consume the essential nutrients for health.
