SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., Sept. 10, 1999 -- Doctor's Best has introduced Total Daily Formula. Ken Halvorsrude, Doctor's Best president, made the announcement.
Daily use of a multiple formula is the best way to ensure that you receive essential vitamins and minerals. Total Daily Formula, which comes in 180-tablet bottles, fulfills all of these requirements - and a lot more:
Bioperine® -- Bioperine® is a natural extract derived from black pepper that enhances nutrient absorption. Preliminary trials have shown significant increases in absorbing nutrients consumed along with Bioperine®.
Corn-Free Vitamin C - Total Daily Formula uses only corn-free vitamin C (ascorbic acid). The full daily intake of six tablets provides 800 mg. of vitamin C.
Flavonoids - Flavonoids help maintain the structure of blood vessels and also function as versatile antioxidants. They help protect vitamin C from destruction by free radicals. Total Daily Formula provides 100mg of pure flavonoids from 112 mg of citrus extract.
Magnesium glycinate - Magnesium builds strong bones, keeps the heart healthy, regulates nerve function, helps relax muscles and coordinates activity of over 300 enzymes. Total Daily Formula contains 100 percent magnesium glycinate for easy absorption in the intestinal tract.
Mixed Carotenoids (Betatene®) - Total Daily Formula contains Betatene®, derived from D. salina algae farmed in ocean waters off the Australian coast. D. salina contains beta carotene plus four other beneficial carotenes - alpha-carotene, crytoxanthin, lutein, and zeaxanthin.
Optimum B Vitamin servings - Total Daily Formula supplies the necessary amounts of all essential B vitamins - Vitamins B1, B3, B5, B6 and B12. The formula also contains 800 mcg of folic acid, which the FDA now recognizes as essential for preventing neural tube defects in unborn babies.
Three superior sources of calcium - Total Daily Formula contains three of the best absorbed and most effective forms of calcium available. MCHC (microcrystalline hydroxypatite concentrate) is a naturally derived compound composed of calcium, plus all the minerals and organic factors in living bone tissue. MCHC has been clinically shown to benefit bone health. Calcium citrate malate is a form of supplemental calcium shown in recent research to be helpful for postmenopausal women. Calcium glycinate is chelated with the amino acid glycine, one of the most efficient carriers for effective absorption.
Trace minerals - Total Daily Formula contains vanadium and molybdenum. Vanadium helps maintain normal blood sugar. Molybdenum detoxifies and eliminates foreign substances from the body.
Trimethylglycine - Also known as 'betaine,' it plays an important role in maintaining heart health. It helps the body metabolize methionine so that excess homocysteine doesn't build up in the blood. Elevated homocysteine may be a risk factor for heart disease.
