Description: Basic Preventive 3 180t is available by Douglas Laboratories.
A Dietary Supplement
3, provided by Douglas Laboratories®, is a comprehensive, highly
concentrated vitamin-mineral-trace element supplement containing more
than 30 essential nutritional ingredients. Basic Preventive 3 is more
than just another multivitamin supplement. It is a potent antioxidant
formula with natural beta-carotene (from D. salina) and natural vitamin
E; a high-potency B-complex supplement; a significant source of
bioavailable calcium and magnesium; and a full-spectrum trace element
supplement. Basic Preventive 3 uses only the purest, most
hypoallergenic ingredients and contains no yeast; corn; wheat; sugar or
other sweeteners; artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. This
formula contains iron and copper in a base of freeze-dried glandular
extracts, including liver, thymus, spleen and adrenal.
Basic Preventive 3 is ideal for
individuals with vitamin, mineral and trace element deficiencies due to
sub-optimal dietary intake, age, and life style habits. For many
individuals, Basic Preventive 3 is the only daily nutritional
supplement and antioxidant formula they need to take.
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.
Preventive 3 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.
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.
The unique inert cellulose
tablet coating consistently disintegrates rapidly for better nutrient
absorption. Beta-carotene is added to the coating to help preserve
nutrient activity and naturally colors each tablet pink.
