What Is UltraNutrient?
UltraNutrient® combines the core vitamins and minerals of Nutrient 950® with advanced antioxidants and standardized phytonutrient extracts to provide a supplement of exceptional broad-spectrum nutritional support.*
Uses For UltraNutrient
Enhanced Antioxidant Support: Like Nutrient 950, UltraNutrient provides a high profile of free radical scavenging antioxidants important for cardiovascular, immune, and cellular health. In addition, UltraNutrient contains reduced glutathione, alpha lipoic acid and an enhanced level of mixed cartotenoids for high capacity antioxidant support.*
Enhanced Cardiovascular System Support: UltraNutrient provides folate (as Metafolin®, L-5-MTHF), vitamin B6 and vitamin B12 to support cardiovascular health and homocysteine metabolism. Metafolin® is the naturally occurring universally metabolized form of folate. It is chemically identical to the active folate metabolite, 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (L-5-MTHF), the predominant, naturally occurring form of folate in food. Through bypassing several enzymatic activation steps, it is directly usable by the body and provides all of the benefits of folic acid regardless of functional or genetic variations. UltraNutrient also provides hawthorn extract, CoQ10 and ginger extract for enhanced cardiovascular support.*
Enhanced Liver Support: Curcuma longa (turmeric) supports liver cell function, while Silybum marianum (milk thistle) promotes glutathione production and superoxide dismutase activity to protect the liver from free-radical damage. Milk thistle also stimulates protein synthesis for new liver tissue and optimal hepatic functioning.*
