Ultra Preventive X is Douglas Laboratories’ signature formula and 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.

Ultra Preventive X Capsules is Douglas Laboratories’ signature formula and the most comprehensive multivitamin and mineral supplement, with organic fruits, vegetables and phytonutrients. This unique formula provides antioxidant support and many beneficial nutrients, including carotenoids, flavonoids, polyphenols and bioavailable forms of vitamins and minerals that may contribute to optimal health.

FUNCTIONS

Ultra Preventive X (Vegetarian Capsules) has been carefully developed to contain adequate amounts of vitamins, minerals, and other beneficial nutrients and enzymes. Each ingredient is selected in consideration of its absorbability, competitive relationship with other nutrients, allergenic potential, and long-term safety. The specific nutrients are included in high-potency amounts because of the vital roles they play in antioxidant protection; cellular health; energy; methylation; the nervous system; vascular, bone, heart and immune support;and other functions.

Alpha-lipoic acid is a nutritional coenzyme that is able to scavenge a number of free radicals. Besides being a universal free radical scavenger, alpha-lipoic acid can also recharge other antioxidant systems, such as glutathione and vitamins C and E. Vitamin C is a potent, water-soluble antioxidant nutrient that also protects cells from oxygen free radical damage. It is essential for connective tissue and bone metabolism, wound healing, and immune function. Vitamin C works together with vitamin E, recognized as the body’s most valuable fat-soluble antioxidant. It prevents oxidation of unsaturated fatty acids by inactivating free radicals, thus stabilizing and protecting cell membranes, e.g., in the lungs, eyes, and arteries. The carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin are important antioxidants in the macula of the eye, as evidenced by recent studies performed by the NIH National Eye Institute. Research has shown that these important carotenoids are the predominant pigments found in the macula and support antioxidant defence. Lycopene provides optimal antioxidant support for cellular health.

N-Acetyl-l-Cysteine is a precursor for the sulfur amino acid cysteine, which is used by the body to synthesize glutathione. Glutathione is a naturally occurring tripeptide that is a major component of two enzymes:glutathione peroxidase and glutathione reductase, which help scavenge toxic free radicals and inhibit peroxidation. The antioxidant activity of quercetin is important to the gastrointestinal tract and immune system.

Calcium and magnesium are included in a 1:1 ratio in bioavailable, hydrolyzed vegetable protein chelate and citrate forms to support bone and tissue health. Vitamin D is responsible for the absorption of calcium into the blood, and vitamin K2 deposits the blood calcium into bones and teeth. Therefore, consuming sufficient amounts of dietary calcium is not enough for bone health; the body needs to distribute and utilize the calcium properly with aid of vitamin K2.

A significant dose of elemental choline from choline bitartrate is supplied in this formula. Choline acts as a methyl donor for homocysteine and folate metabolism in the methylation cycle following conversion to betaine, and also as a structural component of cellular membranes and synthesis of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Choline is also a lipotropic factor that supports liver function and mobilizes fats and bile.

This formula contains methylated B vitamins for increased bioavailability to the body. Hydroxocobalamin is a precursor form of vitamin B12 converted in the body to both methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin. While methylcobalamin is found in the cytosol of cells and predominates in blood and other fluids, adenosylcobalamin is the major form of vitamin B12 stored in the mitochondria of cellular tissues. L-methylfolate 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, L-methylfolate can be used directly by the body, without the need for an additional conversion via the enzyme (5, 10 methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR)).
