Claims:

1. This supplement works in concert with the antioxidant supplement to provide a perfectly balanced daily supplement of all the important vitamins and minerals necessary for excellent health13,14,15,16,17,18,19

2. All minerals used in this supplement are chelated with an amino acid to enhance absorption. It is well known that once humans are over the age of 35-40, the absorption of minerals is approximately 2-4%. Once chelated that rate is increased to 35-40%20,21,22

3. Burdock,23,34sage and horsetail25 have been shown to enhance fingernail, hair and bone growth. Burdock is also an excellent purifier of the blood.

4. Vitamin E has been shown to reduce the risk of coronary artery disease and stroke. When taken in doses of 1200-2400 IU/day it has been suggested to reduce the effects of Alzheimer's disease27-31

5. Vitamin C is an outstanding water soluble antioxidant and may reduce the risk of heart disease and certain cancers. The same is true for beta carotene and Vitamin A30,32-38

6. Selenium has been show to support the antioxidant function of glutathione S-transferase and reduce the risk of certain cancers24,39-41

7. Grape seed extract42 is an outstanding antioxidant and has been shown to be 20 times more powerful than vitamin C and 50 times as powerful as vitamin E
