Metagenics’ One-of-a-Kind PhytoMulti Supplement Now Available with Iron

[title]

Metagenics, Inc., a nutrigenomics and lifestyle medicine company focused on improving health, today released PhytoMulti with Iron, an enhanced modification that adds iron to the original PhytoMulti supplement. PhytoMulti is known as the “Smart Multi” for its ability to target cellular health by nourishing cells, recharging cellular communication and defending against free radical damage. The PhytoMulti with Iron supplement supports Metagenics’ 2012 "Year of You” campaign providing simple, healthy resolutions and nutritional protocols to improve health.

“PhytoMulti with Iron delivers the same tested cellular support and health benefits found in the original PhytoMulti supplement with the addition of iron, a mineral necessary for proper blood cell function that helps protect against chronic diseases like anemia and fatigue,” said Joseph Lamb, MD, Director of Intramural Clinical Research for Metagenics. "Like PhytoMulti, PhytoMulti with Iron is the only professional brand daily supplement that undergoes an unparalleled, sophisticated level of scientific validation. Now, people who need the added benefits of supplemental iron can receive the recommended dose from PhytoMulti with Iron.”

 

PhytoMulti with Iron is particularly beneficial for women from 18 to peri-menopause who need to consume additional iron in their diet, as well as individuals that may not receive enough iron in their normal diets, such as vegetarians.

 

PhytoMulti and PhytoMulti with Iron are specifically designed to activate health potential with a science-based combination of phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals. An independent laboratory evaluated PhytoMulti’s proprietary blend and the entire combination of active ingredients with the new total functional oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORACFN) assay that measures against five major free radicals. Unlike a conventional ORAC, which tests against only one radical, this expanded in vitro assay provides a better sense of antioxidant protection against a variety of potentially damaging free radicals and other reactive oxygen species. An analysis of PhytoMulti's active ingredients (equivalent to the contents in one tablet) showed a total ORACFN value of 12,600 trolox, demonstrating exceptional antioxidant capacity.*

 

The potential of the phytonutrient blend to help maintain DNA stability was validated using the COMET assay, a complex in vitro test using human immune cells. This assay demonstrated a 52 percent increase in DNA stability when cells pretreated with the phytonutrient blend were compared to control cells introduced to the same oxidative medium (peroxides).*

 

PhytoMulti with Iron contains a combination of plant extracts with complex phytonutrients and additional phytonutrients that were selected for their targeted support for cellular health and function, as well as for their positive influence in multiple pathways and health systems. In addition to iron and the phytonutrient blend, PhytoMulti with Iron also delivers a concentrated daily dose of:

 

1) Clinically effective levels of select plant bioactives—resveratrol, lutein, zeaxanthin and lycopene—to support health of the eyes, liver, heart, and more*

 

2) An optimized blend of essential minerals and vitamins, including vitamin forms designed for greater bioavailability: vitamin D3, L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate (folate) and methylcobalamin (B12)

 

In the “Year of You” program, PhytoMulti with Iron is an option to complement a variety of personalized protocols to promote wellness and vitality. The goal of this year-long program is to introduce patients to science-based products that support long-term health. Other featured components include the Identi-T stress management protocols and the Wellness Essentials line of daily packet products that provide a personalized combination of Metagenics formulas, including PhytoMulti and PhytoMulti with Iron.*
