Discussion

Good nutrition is a basis for wellness, and good nutrition usually translates into a stronger immune system and better health. An
important aspect of good nutrition is micronutrition (vitamins and minerals).[1-4] Micronutrients participate in converting food to
energy; building and repairing tissues and DNA; manufacturing neurotransmitters, hormones, and other modulators in the body;
breaking down and detoxifying xenobiotics and medications; and maintaining growth, reproduction, and health. According to research by the USDA and other organizations, the American diet is lacking micronutrients.[5-8] In fact, nine out of 10 Americans are missing key micronutrients.[7] Mass food production, storage techniques, poor food choices, and nutrient-depleting preparation methods may contribute to inadequacies. The bottom line is that children and adults are not consuming enough nutrient-rich foods to meet all their most basic vitamin and mineral needs.[6] What’s more, some scientists feel that the recommended intakes (e.g., %DV, DRIs, EARs, RDAs) may not meet the requirements of all individuals, especially the chronically ill.*

There are numerous reasons to select ActivNutrients formulas:

Balanced Profile Vitamins and minerals work synergistically and
cooperatively when present in proper amounts. However, imbalances between micronutrients can disrupt this synergistic relationship, possibly leading to instances of competitive intestinal absorption or displacement at the metabolic/cellular level, which can produce relative excesses and insufficiencies. For this reason, ActivNutrients formulas feature a balanced nutrient profile that includes calcium and magnesium, zinc and copper, vitamins C and E, bioactive folate, vitamin B12, B vitamin complex, beta-carotene, and trace elements.*

Bioavailability The micronutrients are provided in bioavailable forms so that they can be better absorbed and utilized. ActivNutrients formulas contain a full complement of Albion® patented mineral chelates and complexes. Albion is a recognized world leader in mineral amino acid chelate nutrition and manufactures highly bioavailable nutritional mineral forms that are validated by third party research and clinical studies. Not only do these formulas contain natural vitamin E, which has been proven to be up to 100% more bioavailable than synthetic dl-alpha-tocopherol, but it is also provides mixed tocopherols to more closely approximate how one might consume vitamin E in healthful foods.[9,10] Folate is provided as 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF)—the most bioactive form of folate.[11]

ActivNutrients formulas feature 5-MTHF as Quatrefolic®, which is proven to have greater stability, solubility, and bioavailability
over calcium salt forms of 5-MTHF. Vitamin B12 is provided asMecobalActive™. This patented form of methylcobalamin has very high purity; no harmful solvents are used in its production.[12] Vitamins B2 and B6 are also provided in activated forms.*

Energy Production ActivNutrients formulas provide generous levels of B vitamins, which serve as prime coenzymes in glycolysis and oxidative phosphorylation and as cofactors in amino acid and lipid metabolism. The balanced presence of B vitamins is essential to their cooperative functioning and excellent for those with stressful lifestyles.*

Antioxidant Protection Vitamins E and C, selenium, zinc, beta carotene, and trace elements provide broad-spectrum antioxidant
activity. Their combined presence supports their ability to regenerate each other and maintain consistent levels of antioxidant activity both intra- and extracellularly.*

Detoxification Support Xenobiotics, including environmental pollutants and medications, must undergo biotransformation into
molecules that can be easily excreted from the body. There are significant levels of bioavailable riboflavin, niacin, folate, and B12
present in these formulas to support phase I detoxification. Beta carotene, vitamin C, tocopherols, selenium, copper, zinc, and
manganese are present to protect tissues from reactive intermediates formed between phase I and phase II detoxification.
