Good nutrition promotes health, while nutritional deficiencies can lead to many chronic diseases. Yet, many people underestimate the importance of achieving proper levels of essential nutrients each day. For the human body to complete vital daily tasks, it must be given a wide and complex variety of key nutrients. Comprehensive studies conducted by the USDA have revealed the average American diet is lacking in micronutrients.1,2 Nutritional deficiencies may be caused by drug-induced nutrient depletion, poor food choices, inadequate nutrient levels in soil, and improper food transport and food processing techniques. Combine this with the impact of a high-stress, fast-paced modern lifestyle, and ensuring foundational nutrition each day becomes essential. Alpha Base Premier Packs make achieving optimal daily nutrition simple by supplying these cornerstone products in convenient packets.
The importance of bioavailability is clear: If consuming a multivitamin has little effect on improving the body’s nutrient balance, there is no reason to ingest it. A sure sign of an inferior multivitamin is the use of cheap, poorly-absorbed, rock-salt minerals like calcium carbonate and magnesium oxide. These mineral forms have limited absorption and rely on adequate stomach acid to promote passive diffusion into the body. What’s more, because they remain in the intestines for an extended period of time, these forms can cause intestinal distress such as constipation (calcium carbonate) or diarrhea (magnesium oxide). Unlike many multivitamin options, Alpha Base Premier Packs include only the bioavailable forms of nutrients in precise, therapeutic amounts.
Albion® TRAACS® mineral chelates have extensive clinical research proving their superior bioavailability, biologic activity, stability and tolerance. In a magnesium comparison study reported by Graff et al. at Weber State University, Albion’s® magnesium amino acid chelate had:
• 8.8 times greater absorption than magnesium oxide
• 5.6 times greater absorption than magnesium sulfate
• 2.3 times greater absorption than magnesium carbonate
Vita-Base Capsules without Iron†
Vita-Base provides a full spectrum of highly-absorbed, Albion® mineral chelates. Albion® uses a patented process to create natural mineral compounds that significantly enhance mineral absorption. Comparison studies show significantly superior absorption of mineral chelates over other forms of minerals.
Metabolism and Energy Production† Converting food into cellular energy is a nutrient-intensive process. Alpha Base provides substantial levels of B vitamins, which are prime coenzymes for the Kreb’s cycle, or the biochemical pathway responsible for maintaining energy production in the form of ATP (adenosine triphosphate). Alpha Base exclusively uses high-quality, USP* grade B vitamins ideal for those looking to boost energy levels and support stressful lifestyles. This includes the bioavailable form of folate (Quatrefolic™ – 100% 5-MTHF). 5-MTHF helps promote DNA repair, homocysteine balance, neurotransmitter production, hormone balance and healthy detoxification.
Broad-Spectrum Antioxidant Support†
The body is constantly exposed to free radicals and relies heavily on its antioxidant reserve for protection. Free radicals are generated by metabolic by-products and environmental exposure such as UV rays from the sun, air pollution and radiation. Alpha Base contains a balanced spectrum of antioxidant vitamins, such as vitamin C, mixed carotenoids, trace elements and nutrients, that up-regulate antioxidant supporting pathways in the body. They work synergistically to regenerate each other and maintain adequate levels of protective antioxidants throughout the body.
Omega-3 fatty acids are deemed “essential” because the body needs them for proper health, but cannot produce them. Therefore, consumption of these healthy fats through diet and supplementation is extremely important. Omega-3 fatty acids are required for supporting proper blood flow, maintaining normal inflammatory balance and supporting mood, memory and focus. Vita-Fish Oil is a high-concentration fish oil sourced from waters off the Chilean coast. As the world’s least-industrialized coastline, these cold, fresh waters provide the cleanest, most sustainable source of fish in the world. Vita-Fish Oil provides 820 mg of EPA and DHA per soft gel as concentrated triglycerides, the bio-identical form best absorbed in the body. Vitamin E (as mixed tocopherols) is added to stabilize the oil and ensure maximum purity and freshness. This exceptional fish oil is purified, vacuum distilled and independently tested to ensure heavy metals, pesticides and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are reduced to undetectable levels.
Resvoxitrol is a unique combination of phytonutrients designed to enhance antioxidant potential by stimulating the nuclear factorerythyroid-2-related factor (Nrf2), the binding protein responsible for the antioxidant response in the body. This exclusive blend of turmeric, andrographis, resveratrol, and broccoli seed extract has a wide array of biological activity including direct free radical scavenging potential as well as inducing intracellular antioxidant production. These potent phytochemicals are the basis of many “superfoods” and have extensive, peer-reviewed research supporting their dramatic effect on cell health and longevity.
