Douglas Labs Basic Preventive 5 Iron-Free 270 vcaps is a comprehensive, highly concentrated vitamin-mineral-trace element supplement containing more than 30 essential nutritional ingredients. Basic Preventive 5 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 5 uses only the purest, most hypoallergenic ingredients and contains no yeast; corn; wheat; sugar or other sweeteners; artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. Basic Preventive 5 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 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. Basic Preventive 5 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. 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. Beta-carotene is added to the coating to help preserve nutrient activity and naturally colors each tablet pink.
