Our research has taught us that, with the delivery of certain nutrients, we can prevent and even reverse the damage caused by the free radicals that attack and destroy the mitochondria and its DNA. We will touch on only five of the nutrients find in the Full Spectrum multivitamin as it would take a book to fully elucidate each of the nutrients in the product.
A multivitamin has to be perfectly balanced and must represent the most current scientific research. When you look carefully at the Pinnaclife Full Spectrum label you will notice we are not typical. Our research provided insight into the need for 263% of the government’s recommended daily allowance (RDA) for Vitamin D3. One study over a controlled clinical trial followed 1,180 postmenopausal women for five years and found that taking 1,000 IU of Vitamin Dc a day caused a 77% reduction in cancer when compared to the placebo group. (Am J Clin Nutr. 2007 Jun: 85(6): 1586-91)
This single vitamin is involved in hundreds of chemical reactions necessary for cellular well-being. It is also involved with the regulation of more than 200 genes. Approximately 70% of the population have low levels of vitamin D. Vitamin D can protect us from a plethora of life-threatening diseases, but to get these benefits you must take at least 1,000 IU of this vitamin each day.
The World Health Organiztion (WHO) reports that one third of the world’s population is iodine deficient. They recognize iodine deficiency as the world’s greatest single cause of preventable mental retardation. (WHO, IBID3/27, 12 Nov. 1998)
Iodine is probably one of the nutrients you did not pay attention to last time you checked your vitamin bottle. Thats OK, we checked it for you and then provided you with 233% of the RDA for iodine. You may just noticed small health issuea if you are deficient in iodine. You may gain weight or not be able to lose weight, feel tired, or just have too many “senior moments.” These may all be critical warning signs related to more serious diseases that are preventable with adequate iodine.
How important is it? Simple, without it you can’t survive. CoQ10 is involved in the production of your mitochondria’s “high octane fuel” known as ATP. Your brain and heart are most dependent upon CoQ10 for their survival. This is why so many cardiologists prescribe CoQ10 for their at-risk patients as well as those who have undergone a major coronary event. It is a potent mitochondrial antioxidant. It circulates in the mitochondria and neutralizes free radicals that attach mitochondrial membranes and DNA. There are 50 mg of CoQ10 in your daily dose of Full Spectrum supplements.
Alpha Lipoic Acid & Acetyl-L-Carnitine
Rarely are two such critical mitochondrial protectants studied in tandem, but this is the case with these two anti-aging powerhouses. There are more than one hundred age-related conditions and diseases associated with mitochondrial decay. They have been studied for years and their ability to prevent and reverse mitochondria damage is well documented in the scientific literature.
As we narrow the scientific field in anti-aging medical research, we are discovering that the answer to longevity and good health is dependent upon a healthy mitochondria.
