Suggested Use: 4-6 capsules per day, in divided doses, with meals. Not to be taken by pregnant or lactating women.
Support for healthy glucose metabolism, lipid utilization, body composition and weight management as part of a healthy lifestyle with a reduced calorie diet and regular exercise.* Vitamin/Mineral Distinctions: • High potency, hypo-allergenic, vegetarian formula • Activated vitamins and superior mineral chelates for optimal absorption • Antioxidant support from naturally derived vitamin C, vitamin E, beta carotene, lycopene, lutein, zeaxanthin and alpha lipoic acid* • 800 mcg Metafolin® (6S)-5-methyltetrahydrofolic acid (L-5-MTHF), the naturally occurring, universally metabolized form of folate* • 400 mcg of chromium, from chromium polynicotinate and patented, enhanced bioactivity Chromium 454®, to support Akt metabolic kinase activity and GLUT4 glucose transporter function* • 500 mg of vitamin C, from ascorbic acid and rapid uptake PureWay-C®, for healthy inflammation balance, lipid antioxidant protection, and C-reactive protein metabolism*
• Macular Synergy Complex Enhances the integrity of the macula and retina with lutein and zeaxanthin. Numerous double blind, placebocontrolled trials indicate that lutein and zeaxanthin support the health of the retina and optical lens. Additionally, recent research has revealed that the combination may target different areas in the retina to enhance total retinal health, photoreceptor health, and color vision. Synergistic cofactors include vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc and carotenoids.* • Metabolic GlycoPlex Supports healthy glucose uptake with alpha lipoic acid and cinnamon. Clinical trials report that supplementation with cinnamon promotes healthy glucose balance and is well tolerated. In another study, alpha lipoic acid decreased serum lactate and pyruvate and promoted healthy glucose metabolism in lean and overweight individuals. Furthermore, alpha lipoic acid and l-carnosine help maintain healthy advanced glycation end product metabolism and provide antioxidant protection.* • Metabolic LipidPlex Promotes hepatic fat metabolism with green tea and taurine. Green tea extract has been shown in recent studies to enhance thermogenesis and fat oxidation. Taurine promotes healthy glucose, lipid and triglyceride metabolism. Taurine promotes the formation of taurocholate, a substance that increases cholesterol secretion in the bile and also supports fat metabolism in the liver. Studies reveal that pterostilbene, an antioxidant found in blueberries and the Pterocarpus marsupium tree, may promote healthy PPAR activity to encourage healthy lipid and triglyceride metabolism.*
