Basic Preventive 4 (Iron and Copper Free)
Basic Preventive 4, provided by Douglas Laboratories, is a comprehensive, highly concentrated vitamin-mineral-trace element supplement containing more than 30 essential nutritional ingredients. Basic Preventive 4 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 Preventive4 uses only the purest, most hypoallergenic ingredients and contains no yeast; corn; wheat; sugar or other sweeteners; artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. This formula is iron and copper free.
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. Basic Preventive®4 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 longterm safety. 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. The unique inert cellulose tablet coating consistently disintegrates rapidly for better nutrient absorption.
INDICATIONS Basic Preventive 4 is ideal for individuals with sub-optimal vitamin, mineral and trace element intakes due to diet, age, and life style habits.
