Complete Multi-Vitamin

Multiple Vitamin-Mineral-Trace Element Supplement

DESCRIPTION

Douglas Laboratories® is proud to announce that

Ultra Preventive® III 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.

FUNCTIONS

Studies show that a high percentage of adults

and children in North America and other

developed countries 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 and prevention of chronic

diseases. Ultra Preventive® III has been

carefully developed to contain the right

proportions of vitamins, minerals, and trace

elements without danger of toxic build-up and

without side effects. Each ingredient is selected

in consideration of its absorbability, competitive

relationship with other nutrients, allergenic

potential, and long-term safety. Certain

nutrients are purposely omitted (phosphorus);

others, 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 and maintenance of healthy blood

cells, nervous system, hormonal balance, and

more. Minerals and trace elements are provided

in their safest and most bioavailable forms, such

as amino acid chelates and other scientifically

validated and clinically superior forms.

INDICATIONS

Ultra Preventive® III is ideal for individuals with

vitamin, mineral and trace element deficiencies

due to sub-optimal dietary intake, age and life

style. For many individuals, Ultra Preventive® III

is the only daily nutritional supplement and

antioxidant formula they need to take.
