We work with only the best suppliers when sourcing our raw materials for inclusion in our vitamins, but even so we make a point to test everything that goes into our vitamins so that we can be absolutely sure that what is on the label is what is in the bottle, with no surprises. Whenever possible, we strive to include 100% GMO Free ingredients in our products, and DrVita Six Daily is guaranteed GMO Free, verified through our intensive internal testing processes.
Say "No!" to artificial colors and dangerous chemicals.
Years of science have shown that artificial colors are dangerous and should be avoided at all costs. Most of the rock hard multivitamin tablets on the market today carry these ingredients: Titanium Dioxide, FD&C Yellow 6 Aluminum Lake, and other chemical ingredients that do not belong in a healthy product.
RECENT SCIENCE INDICATES HIGH LEVELS OF CALCIUM AND COPPER CONTRIBUTE TO AN INCREASED RISK OF HEART ATTACKS AND ALZHEIMER'S
As a result DrVita Six Daily does NOT contain calcium or copper, but instead has higher levels of vitamin D3, K1, K2 and magnesium which are shown to promote healthy bones and cardiovascular health. The D3, K1 and K2 assist the body by removing the calcium from the blood and arteries and placing it in the bones where it is needed.
Why Buy a High Quality Multi? Store-bought generic multivitamins may help prevent vitamin deficiency, but they don't address the issue of vitamin insufficiency.
Satisfying vitamin deficiency is a far cry from supplying optimally sufficient levels of vitamins and other nutrients that meet the newer research that shows higher levels are necessary for optimal health.
One good example of this is the research on Vitamin D3 that shows 400 to 800 IUs of daily Vitamin D1, D2, or D3 is insufficient to meet the new requirement of optimal blood levels of D3 at 50 ng per ml Vitamin D3 deficiency is defined as blood levels below 20 ng per ml and 400 to 800 IUs of Vitamin D daily supplementation probably meets this meager goal but is still far from optimal sufficiency levels. Multivitamin manufacturers are clearly not keeping up with the science of vitamin optimal sufficiency.
There are many other examples of preventing deficiency but not achieving sufficiency with vitamin - mineral formulations. Selenium is a good example: large 5,000 person studies carried out over 5 years show that 200 mcg. of daily Selenium meets optimal sufficiency requirements, but most name brand multis only supply 30 to 80 mcg. of Selenium.
Optimal daily intake levels of Zinc are now considered to be at least 15 mg per day or more to support healthy immune function. The best selling national brand name supplies only 11 mg of Zinc, 73% of RDA.
Are you fooling yourself into believing you're getting optimal levels of your vitamins when you're getting levels that only prevent vitamin deficiency?
Higher Levels of Vitamin B12 Supports Healthy Brain Function & Aging
This study indicates lower vitamin B12 (B12) status within the normal range (i.e., not deficient) is associated with significantly poorer learning & memory performance, in part due to deterioration of key brain regions critical for memory, compared to higher B12 status in healthy adults with mild cognitive impairment (MCI). These observations complement previous studies suggesting lower B12 status, even within the normal range, contributes to memory dysfunction [2, 3]
One hundred adults (50 - 80 years old) with MCI, although with relatively preserved general cognition and no impairment in activities of daily living, were split into 2 groups based on blood B12 concentration. Learning & recognition performance (i.e., memory) was tested via the Rey Auditory Verbal Learning Test, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was performed to assess volume & microstructural integrity brain regions critical for memory.
Patients in the low-normal B12 group showed significantly poorer memory performance, specifically in learning-ability and recognition scores, compared to the high-normal B12 group. Furthermore, those in the low-normal B12 group had significantly worse microstructural integrity in regions of the hippocampus critical for memory performance.
Additional supporting medial studies
Intervention studies further support a causal relationship between B12 and cognitive function as supplementation with high-dose B12/folate/B6 was shown to improve memory performance even in people with high-normal baseline status (332 pmol/L) , pointing to benefits of higher B12 status already within the normal range, and slow the rate of atrophy in brain regions associated with cognitive decline including the hippocampus . Given the high and increasing number of people with MCI, high prevalence of low-normal B12 status in the older population (up to 20% of those >60 years old) , and results from this as well as previous studies, the optimal level for B12 supplementation and blood levels in older adults is not adequate in the typical diet or multivitamin based on current below optimal RDA (now called Daily Value levels).
Superior Methyl active B12 Supplements
Aging people and vegetarians/vegans are at significant risk of B12 deficiency. B-12 supplements are effective for preventing deficiencies. Most dietary supplements contain cyanobalamin, a cheaper, synthetic form of vitamin B12 containing cyanide that requires multiple enzymatic transformations to become biologically active methylcobalamin (methyl-B12). Methyl-B12, the form found in food, is better absorbed and retained by the body. Furthermore, much of the general population has limitations in conversion due to high prevalence of genetic variation in the methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene that reduces activity of the enzyme, the rate-limiting enzyme of the methylation cycle. Therefore, methyl-B12 is considered to be the superior form.
Frequently consumed dietary diuretics such as caffeinated beverages (coffee) and alcohol can increase loss of nutrients such as B-vitamins. Antacid drugs such as proton pump inhibitors (Prilosec, Protonix, Nexium & Prevacid) reduce absorption of nutrients thereby increasing the amount needed from dietary and supplemental intake.
As aerobic organisms we breathe in oxygen and reduce it to water in a four-step process. We store this energy in the ATP storage molecule. We then have the luxury of burning ATP for energy as we need it.
We make high energy demands on our bodies and on our minds--this energy comes at a high price, however – we need vital nutrients--the B Vitamins--B1, B2, B6 and B12 and not just in the micro quantities found in generic, store-bought vitamins. We need them in optimal amounts to support our daily metabolism but even more so from the demands of exercise. Even our thinking is pushed to the limit--our brain's utilization of energy demands high energy output behind a computer screen doing abstract thinking--one more large energy demand that we ask of our body. A chain is only as strong as its weakest link - insufficient B vitamins are a weak link in the energy chain.
The B Vitamins are essential for the body's processing of carbohydrates, proteins and fats.
Acetyl L-Carnitine and Alpha Lipoic Acid
DrVita includes Acetyl-L-Carnitine and Alpha Lipoic Acid in its Six Daily because Acetyl-L-Carnitine and Alpha Lipoic Acid work potently together to restore energy output in all the cells of the body. They work together by restoring the capacity of the energy producing organelles found in all the cells of the body called the mitochondria. The mitochondria are responsible for the production of nearly 95% of the energy your body needs for development, growth and robust metabolism. The problem with aging is that all your mitochondria decay during the aging process since they generate the vast majority of free radicals formed in the body - they become severely damaged or burn themselves out completely.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine and Alpha Lipoic Acid are 100 to 1,000 more potent at restoring mitochondrial function when taken together than when taken separately.
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)
DrVita includes 100 mg of Coenzyme Q10 in the Six Daily for restoring energy - it is an actual step in energy production in every cell in the body. Because Coenzyme Q10 can be manufactured by the cells, it is not considered a vitamin. The problem is that Coenzyme Q10 production drops with age and restoring it to youthful levels supports optimal energy. Coenzyme Q10 studies show that supplementation with it decreases fatigue and increases stamina, and some studies show that CoQ10 lowers exercise-related damage.
Most multivitamins contain the cyanide form of Vitamin B12 – cyanocobalamin, and usually at trivial doses. DrVita includes the more expensive Methylcobalamin at an 83 times higher dose than most store-bought multis. Methylcobalamin is a more bioavailable form of B12 which supports healthy Homocystine levels for optimal cardiovascular health.
Green Tea Extract is included in the DrVita Six Daily because Green Tea has been shown to increase daily energy expenditure, lower insulin resistance, support healthy blood glucose levels and improve total antioxidant status (TAS) in the blood. The 500 mg of Green Tea Extract in DrVita's Six Daily is equivalent to drinking 5 cups of Green Tea.
Grape Seed Extract
DrVita Six Daily contains Grape Seed Extract, which activates the enzyme that produces nitric oxide in arteries needed for normal dilation and relaxation of blood vessels. Acting as an antioxidant, it lowers the levels of oxidized LDL-cholesterol (bad cholesterol) in the blood. Vitamin C and Grape Seed recycle each other back to their reduced state so they can quench free radicals faster.
Pine Bark Extract
Pine Bark Extract is included in DrVita Six Daily because it supports heart health, circulation, healthy skin and inflammatory health. Pine Bark contains a combination of procyanidins, bioflavonoids and organic acids with extraordinary health benefits. It has been studied for more than 35 years, with high grade studies demonstrating its safety and efficacy.
100 mg Pine Bark Extract is a commonly used dose in human trials, where it quenches free radicals and lowers oxidative stress in a variety of situations. Like Grape Seed, Pine Bark Extract is also highly synergistic with Vitamin C, and both extracts are 30 to 50 times more potent than Vitamin E at quenching free radicals.
Chromium is an essential trace mineral and its more bioavailable form is Chromium Polynicotinate, ChromeMate brand, is included in DrVita Six Daily. Chromium Polynicotinate lowers insulin resistance and helps support healthy blood sugar levels. It supports healthy cholesterol already within a normal range in two human trials, supports body weight already within normal ranges and supports a healthy body composition.
Vitamin K is obtained from the diet as phylloquinone (vitamin K-1) and Menaquinone (MK Vitamin K-2). DrVita Six Daily supplies both forms of this vital nutrient. Vitamin K2, or Menaquinone MK7, is an essential micronutrient that performs many vital functions to maintain optimal health. From helping to build strong bones and helping prevent calcification of circulatory walls – Menaquinone MK7 K2 functions to make sure that calcium is deposited in the right places and that calcium is not deposited in the wrong places.
Immune System Function
A healthy immune system requires adequate dietary sources of Vitamins A, C, D, E, Zinc, Selenium and Magnesium.
Heavy exercise, stress from overwork and depression all work to lower the immune function.
Vitamin D3 is included in the DrVita Six Daily at a 5,000 I.U. Dose. The low amounts of Vitamin D in most multis demonstrates how science has outpaced the supplement industry. Also, many common multis have the less optimal form of Vitamin D -Vitamin D1 or Vitamin D2.
DrVita Six Daily contains ten times higher Vitamin D3 levels than most over-the-counter multivitamins. 4,000 to 5,000 I.U.s of D3 are needed to provide critical blood levels at or above 50 ng/ ml to promote healthy bones, cellular health and immunity based on human clinical trials. Studies show that optimal Vitamin D3 blood levels in humans cannot be achieved by 400 IU of D3, but can be achieved by 4,000 IU - 5,000 IU daily amounts. Achieving optimal blood levels of vitamin D3 has become such an important health factor that LabCorp now lists the ranges of Vitamin D3 on its CBC Chem panel (primary) blood test. Doctors routinely prescribe 2,000 to 5,000 I.U.s of Vitamin D3 today to meet the ideal goal of over 50 ng per ml in patient's blood serum.
Vitamin D3 regulates the immune system, controls many aspects of bone building and maintains cardiovascular health. Low Vitamin D3 levels are associated with greater risks in aging populations and greater vulnerability to an increasingly wider variety of health issues than ever imagined. Vitamin D3 deficiency has been associated with markers of inflammation in adults and optimal immune function depends on Vitamin D3 status.
DrVita provides 30 mg of Zinc or 200% of the current RDA in two forms – OptiZinc and Zinc L-Carnosine under the brand name of PepZin GI. PepZin GI Zinc-L-Carnosine is a complex of Zinc with the natural amino acid, L-Carnosine, and is extremely beneficial in supporting healthy gastric function. It has been used and studied in Japan since 1994. Zinc L-Carnosine is retained in the stomach mucous lining for a long period of time and it specifically adheres to inflamed areas, where the L-Carnosine and Zinc are slowly released.
OptiZinc is a unique form of methionine-bound Zinc that is more bioavailable than ordinary Zinc salts and has its own antioxidant benefits. OptiZinc is a 1:1 complexes of Zinc and methionine, the amino acid best absorbed by the body. Preclinical studies show that OptiZinc is absorbed better, retained longer and is more effective than other zinc supplements tested.
Zinc has a protective effect on membranes by neutralizing the Superoxide free radical, which partly explains its healthy support in the acceleration of wound healing Zinc also promotes the secretion of hormones and the stabilization of cell membranes.Zinc is another nutrient where vitamin manufacturers have not kept up with the science of Zinc and are still formulating inadequate amounts (11 mg average) in their products.
Zinc is found in every cell in the body and is essential for over 200 enzymatic reactions that keep us alive. Zinc is an essential mineral that is also a major contributor to immune function, wound healing, sensory functions and healthy cognitive support. Zinc supports skin and sexual health as an essential participant in hormone production. It fights free radicals, being a critical component of S.O.D. (Superoxide Dismutase), the major antioxidant enzyme in the body.
Zinc suppresses the absorption of too much copper in the diet. Free copper is now associated with poor mental health. Zinc deficiency is very common in the elderly and is linked to impaired immune function which can be corrected by zinc supplementation. High Copper levels were associated with a 50% increase in mortality during a study observing the serum levels of Copper, Zinc and Magnesium in men for 18 years. There was a synergistic increase in mortality in men who had low Zinc levels and high serum Copper levels.
A large European study of post-menopausal women showed a direct relationship between Vitamin K2 levels and artery calcification.
The "Calcium Paradox" is the simultaneous depositing of Calcium in the arteries and the lack of Calcium in the bones. The impaired activity of the MGP enzyme, the most potent known artery calcification inhibitor, depends on adequate levels of Menaquinone Vitamin K2. Animal studies showed that circulatory cell calcification could be stopped and even reversed by using Menaquinone Vitamin K2 but not by Vitamin K1.
A 13 year human trial with 7,933 men and women living in Rotterdam confirmed that severe arterial calcification was highest in persons who had the lowest Menaquinone Vitamin K2 intake. Phylloquinone, or Vitamin K1 had no association with artery calcification. This relationship persisted even after adjusting for smoking, cholesterol levels, alcohol intake or other risk factors.
Quercetin is the most abundant flavonoid in the human diet at about 40 mg daily intake from fruits and vegetables. DrVita Six Daily includes 50 mg of Quercetin to help raise the antioxidant status of the blood and help inhibit LDL-Cholesterol (bad cholesterol) oxidation. Quercetin helps lower oxidative stress caused by strenuous exercise.
