ActivEssentials™ is a combination of three targeted nutritional formulas conveniently dose-packaged and provides comprehensive nutritional support. The formulas include Albion® chelated minerals; activated B vitamins; Quatrefolic®; botanicals; and fresh, pure, third-party assayed fish oils. Calcium is provided as DimaCal® dicalcium malate and calcium ascorbate or as microcrystalline hydroxyapatite concentrate (MCHC), DimaCal® dicalcium malate, and calcium ascorbate.
ActivNutrients® without Iron: A high-quality, hypoallergenic, proprietary multivitamin/mineral blend featuring activated vitamins, including folate as 5-MTHF (5-methyltetrahydrofolate), and patented Albion® chelated mineral complexes in easy-to-swallow vegetarian capsules.
OmegaPure 600 EC™: International Fish Oil Standards (IFOS) five-star certified, which assures the highest level of purity, stability, and potency in fish oils. Each fish-gelatin–based softgel provides 600 mg of EPA and DHA. The softgels are covered with a GRAS-certified enteric coating so that they are easy to swallow and the EPA/DHA content is optimally absorbed. EPA and DHA from fish oil promote wellness by supporting cardiovascular health, cytokine balance, joint health, and brain and nervous system function.*
Oraxinol™: An innovative blend of ORAC botanicals. ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) is a rating developed by the National Institute on Aging to measure antioxidant capacity. An ORAC rating of 6000 μmol TE (Trolox equivalents), as found in two capsules of Oraxinol, has been shown to have the antioxidant equivalent of five to nine servings of fruits and vegetables.*
Each packet contains 2 ActivNutrients without Iron capsules, 1 Oraxinol capsule, and 1 OmegaPure 600 EC softgel.
- Provides Foundation Micronutrition for a Variety of Protocols*
- Supports Improved Dietary Nutrient Intake*
- Provides Antioxidant Support*
The average diet can be lacking in complete nutrition due to modern food-production techniques, poor food choices, and nutrient-depleting preparation methods.[1-3] Combine these with the toll of lifestyle stress and oxidizing chemicals—found in foods and the environment—and it becomes essential to ensure comprehensive foundation nutrition for the body. To achieve this, each cellophane-wrapped package of ActivEssentials contains the following XYMOGEN® formulas:*
ActivNutrients® without Iron This high-quality, hypoallergenic multivitamin/mineral blend is provided in vegetable capsules and not only features activated vitamin cofactors and patented Albion® chelated mineral complexes, but it also provides folate as 5-MTHF as well as methylcobalamin as MecobalActive™. The form of 5-MTHF is Quatrefolic®, which is proven to have greater stability, solubility, and bioavailability when compared to calcium salt forms of 5-MTHF. MecobalActive is a patented form of methylcobalamin that has very high purity; no harmful solvents are used in its production. The balanced nutrient profile in ActivNutrients without Iron supports vitamin/mineral synergistic activity; antioxidant protection with vitamins C and E, selenium, and carotenoids; and phase I detoxification.*
Oraxinol™ This innovative blend contains oxidation-fighting botanicals derived from a variety of fruits. The technique known as ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) measures antioxidant capacity, and units of an ORAC value are expressed as micromoles of Trolox equivalents per gram of a substance. Consuming an average of five to nine servings per day of a variety of fruits and vegetables yields 6000 Trolox equivalents. This same amount is supplied by just two capsules (1000 mg) of Oraxinol.* OmegaPure 600 EC™ Each enteric-coated softgel contains 1 g of fish oil, delivering 360 mg of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and 240 mg of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). A rigorous, proprietary, temperature-controlled/vacuum technology is used for purification and manufacturing. Stringent verification processes reduce any potential health risks that may otherwise result from the oil’s exposure to rancid fats, toxins, bacteria, molds, yeasts, or very high levels of fat-soluble vitamins, such as vitamin A. XYMOGEN is proud to provide this International Fish Oil Standards (IFOS) five-star certified formula, which assures the highest level of purity, stability, and potency in fish oils. In addition to complying with a host of federal and state regulations, our supplier also agrees to adhere to voluntary guidelines for manufacturing and to a code of ethics as members of the Council for Responsible Nutrition. Research suggests that the consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may support cardiovascular health. Studies have also shown that fish oils may support healthy cytokine production, promote optimal joint function,, and support overall brain and nervous system function.*
ActivEssentials™ with Calcium contains the same nutrients in the same amounts that are present in ActivEssentials, plus each packet contains one capsule of XYMOGEN’s Ossopan™ for added calcium. Ossopan is microcrystalline hydroxyapatite concentrate (MCHC), a complex crystalline compound that contains calcium, phosphorus, bioactive growth factors, type I collagen, amino acids, glycosaminoglycans, and essential trace elements that naturally comprise healthy bone. Each Ossopan capsule contains 275 mg of calcium which, in addition to the 50 mg of calcium delivered in ActivEssentials from DimaCal® dicalcium malate and calcium ascorbate, brings the total amount of calcium to 325 mg per packet. This amount of calcium comprises a 33% daily value (DV). One capsule of Ossopan also provides 99 mg of phosphorus, which is 10% DV. ActivEssentials™ for Women contains the same nutrients in the same amounts as found in ActivEssentials with Calcium. Each packet of ActivEssentials for Women also contains 2.5 mg of iron and comprises 14% DV. The iron in this formula is Albion’s Ferrochel® (ferrous bisglycinate chelate), a well-studied, 100% fully-reacted, and patented form of iron that has higher bioavailability, lower toxicity, fewer food interactions, and longer shelf life than any other common form of iron.*
