Each packet provides a daily dose of five XYMOGEN foundational health formulas: ProbioMax® Daily DF, ActivNutrients® without Iron, Omega MonoPure® 650 EC, OptiMag® 125, and D3 2000. These formulas provide high-potency probiotics, an iron-free multiple, IFOS five-star certified omega-3 fatty acids, and extra magnesium and D3. Foundation Essentials can be used for any number of purposes, such as to serve as a kick-start to your MedPax® program, basic supplementation while you wait for lab results, or a convenient way to supplement while traveling.*

  • Provides Foundational Supplementation for Overall Health*
  • Supports Intestinal and Microbiome Health*
  • Supports Healthy Magnesium and Vitamin D Levels*
  • Promotes Healthy Immunity*
  • Provides Omega-3 Fatty Acids for Good Nutrition and Healthy Cytokine Production*

 

ProbioMax® Daily DF is a vegetarian, dairy- and gluten-free, four-strain probiotic totaling 30 billion CFU per capsule. ProbioMax Daily DF provides four researched strains of beneficial bacteria, including the extensively studied HN019® strain of Bifidobacterium lactis. [1] These live microorganisms have proven health benefits and well-established safety and have been tested for epithelial cell adhesion and/ or resistance to low pH.[2] To further support resistance to low pH and the delivery of microorganisms to the small intestines, XYMOGEN employs DRcaps™ gastro-resistant capsules. These specially designed, innovative capsules help minimize exposure of the actives to stomach acid and ensure more targeted release. Though the gastrointestinal and immune-supportive benefits of probiotics are the most widely studied, scientists continue to find that gut bacteria influence many other aspects of health, including brain function, weight management, detoxification, and cytokine production.*[3-7]

ActivNutrients® without Iron is a high-quality, hypoallergenic, multivitamin/ mineral blend that includes activated vitamins; folate as Quatrefolic® (5-MTHF); and patented Albion® TRAACS® chelated mineral complexes all provided in vegetarian capsules. Good nutrition is a basis for wellness, and good nutrition usually translates into a stronger immune system and better health. An important aspect of good nutrition is micronutrition (vitamins and minerals).[8-11] According to research by the USDA and other organizations, the American diet is lacking micronutrients.[12-14] In fact, nine out of 10 Americans are missing key micronutrients.[14] Mass food production, storage techniques, poor food choices, and nutrient-depleting preparation methods may contribute to inadequacies. The bottom line is that children and adults are not consuming enough nutrient-rich foods to meet all their most basic vitamin and mineral needs.[13] What’s more, some scientists feel that the recommended intakes (e.g., %DV, DRIs, EARs, RDAs) may not meet the requirements of all individuals, especially the chronically ill.*

There are many reasons to select ActivNutrients without Iron. Among them is its balanced nutrient profile for foundational wellness, bioavailable micronutrient forms for optimal absorption and utilization, generous levels of B vitamins, and broad-spectrum antioxidant and phase I detoxification support.*

Omega MonoPure® 650 EC is made using a proprietary MaxSimil composition containing monoglyceride fish oil with no additional ingredients, carriers, or excipients. Each fish-gelatin softgel is enteric-coated, and every batch of fish oil is IFOS five-star certified to ensure the world’s highest standards for purity, potency, and freshness. The fish oil is non-GMO, certified sustainable from Scandinavia, and antibiotic-free. Additionally, it is eco-friendly because the greater absorption of EPA and DHA ultimately means that fewer grams of fish oil need to be harvested for the same benefit. Research suggests that the consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may support cardiovascular health.[15] Studies have also shown that fish oils may support healthy cytokine production, promote optimal joint function[16], and support overall brain and nervous system function.*[24]

OptiMag® 125 contains Albion®’s TRAACS® magnesium lysinate glycinate (mineral amino acid chelate) and Albion’s chelated di-magnesium malate—both formulated for enhanced absorption. Magnesium, the fourth most abundant mineral in the body, participates in over 600 enzymatic reactions in nearly all tissues.[17] Deficiency is common and results from poor dietary intake, poor absorption, and excessive losses through urine, stool, perspiration, or lactation. Certain drugs, certain herbs, poor kidney function, excessive alcohol intake, and drinking mostly “soft” water can contribute to magnesium depletion as well.[18] Malic acid (from di-magnesium malate) supports energy production and lactic acid clearance via the Krebs cycle.*[19]

D3 2000 provides 2000 IU of cholecalciferol in each convenient softgel. While vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is made in the skin when 7-dehydrocholesterol reacts with sunlight, many things affect the degree to which this biosynthesis occurs, including time of day, seasons, location, smog/pollution, clothing, the shade of skin (darker skin requires more sun), and sunscreen use. Low-cholesterol diets and certain cholesterol therapies can also affect vitamin D formation. By some estimates, one billion people worldwide have vitamin D deficiency or insufficiency.[20] Reversing deficiency and maintaining optimal serum vitamin D levels beneficially impacts biochemistry and numerous body systems; this is large because calcitriol—the physiologically active product of vitamin D—is a secosteroid hormone that targets over 200 genes in a wide variety of tissues.[21,22] As the research demonstrates, vitamin D is clearly imperative for the development, growth, and maintenance of a healthy body from gestation to old age.*[22]

Although D2 and D3 are similar biochemically, D3 was reported to be approximately 87% more potent in raising and maintaining serum calcidiol (body’s storage form) concentrations and in producing two- to a threefold greater storage of vitamin D than the equimolar D2.*[23]
