Research Information

Supplementation with vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients can have direct and indirect benefits for numerous bodily systems, including supporting normal antioxidant processes, detoxification, digestion as well as absorption of nutrients, circulation, protein synthesis, and immune function (1).

Vitamins and minerals work synergistically. For example, vitamins C and E support each other as part of the body’s antioxidant net-work that helps protect against premature aging related to oxida-tive damage to DNA and proteins, cellular structural membranes, and lipids (2).

B vitamins are essential for energy metabolism, but can only be used effectively by the body when they are in their metabolically active coenzyme forms (3). Many people have genetic differences that impair this conversion process, but coenzymated B vitamins are metabolically active nutrients that the body can use directly. This formula contains biologically active preformed coenzyme forms of B vitamins such as Quatrefolic®, the stabilized glucos-amine salt of (6S)-5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF), that is well absorbed and directly usable by the body. MTHF works alongside methylcobalamin (active B12) and pyridoxal 5-phosphate (active B6) to help regulate levels of homocysteine, a substance made in body during normal metabolism. Elevated blood homocysteine levels have been linked to an increased risk of poor cardiovascu-lar health (4).

Zinc is essential for the activity of numerous enzymes involved in hormone balance, and reproductive health. In a study of male fertility, infertile men were found to have low zinc and selenium levels in seminal plasma and to have reduced levels of antioxidant enzymes (5).

Zinc and vitamin C are essential for healing and immune func-tion, and work alongside vitamin E and other nutrients to support skin health and antioxidant defences. Vitamin C is needed for the immune system and has been shown to reduce the number of colds in people under physical stress (6, 7).

Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) is used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to support immune function and energy. This mushroom extract contains biologically active constituents such as polysaccharides like beta-glucan, which has been found to guard against oxidative damage to immune system cells and to exert immune-modulating effects, as well as supporting cognitive function, energy metabolism, and stress responses (8).

Maca (Lepidium meyenii) root powder has traditionally been used to support energy, endurance, and libido. In a clinical sports study, male athletes who received 2000 mg of maca extract daily for 14 days had significantly improved strength and endurance, and enhanced libido, compared to the placebo group (9).

Turmeric (Curcuma longa) root has been used in TCM and Ayurvedic medicines for its numerous health benefits. Turmeric provides antioxidant protection to neutralize free radicals and offers a natural way to promote a balanced inflammatory response. Clinical studies have shown that curcumin, an active compound in turmeric, can help reduce tissue damage caused by inflammation; improve liver function; increase the ability of the heart to pump blood more efficiently; and increase the flexibility of the arteries (10, 11)
