Alpha Base Premier Packs provide a targeted combination
of three high-concentration nutritional formulas in
convenient, easy-to-take packets.
Each pack includes
Alpha Base Capsules without Iron, a hypo-allergenic,
comprehensive, high-quality blend of bioavailable vitamins
and minerals. This formula contains key USP* B vitamins
like folate (as Quatrefolic™ -100% 5-MTHF), the biologically
active form of folic acid. Albion® TRAACS® chelated minerals
provide enhanced bioavailability. An optimal 2:1 ratio of
magnesium to calcium ensures proper mineral balance.
Orthomega 820 is also included, and contains 430 mg of
eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and 390 mg of docosahexaenoic
acid (DHA) omega-3 fatty acids per soft gel. Both EPA and
DHA are provided as natural triglycerides, the preferred
form for superior absorption.
Finally, each pack includes
Resvoxitrol, a unique combination of phytonutrients
designed to enhance antioxidant potential in the body.
Good nutrition promotes health, while nutritional deficiencies can lead to many chronic diseases. Yet, many people underestimate the importance of achieving proper levels of essential nutrients each day. For the human body to complete vital daily tasks, it must be given a wide and complex variety of key nutrients. Comprehensive studies conducted by the USDA have revealed the average American diet is lacking in micronutrients.1,2 Nutritional deficiencies may be caused by drug-induced nutrient depletion, poor food choices, inadequate nutrient levels in soil, and improper food transport and food processing techniques. Combine this with the impact of a high-stress, fast-paced modern lifestyle, and ensuring foundational nutrition each day becomes essential. Alpha Base Premier Packs make achieving optimal daily nutrition simple by supplying these cornerstone products in convenient packets.
The importance of bioavailability is clear: If consuming a multivitamin has little effect on improving the body’s nutrient balance, there is no reason to ingest it. A sure sign of an inferior multivitamin is the use of cheap, poorly-absorbed, rock-salt minerals like calcium carbonate and magnesium oxide. These mineral forms have limited absorption and rely on adequate stomach acid to promote passive diffusion into the body. What’s more, because they remain in the intestines for an extended period of time, these forms can cause intestinal distress such as constipation (calcium carbonate) or diarrhea (magnesium oxide). Unlike many multivitamin options, Alpha Base Premier Packs include only the bioavailable forms of nutrients in precise, therapeutic amounts.
Albion® TRAACS® mineral chelates have extensive clinical research proving their superior bioavailability, biologic activity, stability and tolerance. In a magnesium comparison study reported by Graff et al. at Weber State University, Albion’s® magnesium amino acid chelate had (See Figure 1): 3
- 8.8 times greater absorption than magnesium oxide
- 5.6 times greater absorption than magnesium sulfate
- 2.3 times greater absorption than magnesium carbonate
In a clinical study comparing calcium absorption in humans,
Albion’s® patented calcium chelate delivered the greatest
absorption of all calcium sources tested (44% absorption, see
Alpha Base Capsules without Iron†
Alpha Base provides a full spectrum of highly-absorbed, Albion®
mineral chelates. Albion® uses a patented process to create natural
mineral compounds that significantly enhance mineral absorption.
Comparison studies show significantly superior absorption of
mineral chelates over other forms of minerals.
Metabolism and Energy Production†
Converting food into cellular energy is a nutrient-intensive
process. Alpha Base provides substantial levels of B vitamins,
which are prime coenzymes for the Kreb’s cycle, or the
biochemical pathway responsible for maintaining energy
production in the form of ATP (adenosine triphosphate). Alpha
Base exclusively uses high-quality, USP* grade B vitamins
ideal for those looking to boost energy levels and support
stressful lifestyles. This includes the bioavailable form of folate
(Quatrefolic™ - 100% 5-MTHF). 5-MTHF helps promote DNA
repair, homocysteine balance, neurotransmitter production,
hormone balance and healthy detoxification.
Broad-Spectrum Antioxidant Support†
The body is constantly exposed to free radicals and relies
heavily on its antioxidant reserve for protection. Free radicals
are generated by metabolic by-products and environmental
exposure such as UV rays from the sun, air pollution and
radiation. Alpha Base contains a balanced spectrum of
antioxidant vitamins, such as vitamin C, mixed carotenoids,
trace elements and nutrients, that up-regulate antioxidant
supporting pathways in the body. They work synergistically
to regenerate each other and maintain adequate levels of
protective antioxidants throughout the body.
Omega-3 fatty acids are deemed “essential” because the body
needs them for proper health, but cannot produce them.
Therefore, consumption of these healthy fats through diet and
supplementation is extremely important. Omega-3 fatty acids
are required for supporting proper blood flow, maintaining
proper inflammatory balance and supporting mood, memory
and focus. Orthomega 820 is a high-concentration fish oil
sourced from waters off the Chilean coast. As the world’s
least-industrialized coastline, these cold, fresh waters provide
the cleanest, most sustainable source of fish in the world.
Orthomega provides 820 mg of EPA and DHA per soft gel
as concentrated triglycerides, the bio-identical form best
absorbed in the body. Vitamin E (as mixed tocopherols)
is added to stabilize the oil and ensure maximum purity
and freshness. This exceptional fish oil is purified, vacuum
distilled and independently tested to ensure heavy metals,
pesticides and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are reduced
to undetectable levels.
Resvoxitrol is a unique combination of phytonutrients designed to
enhance antioxidant potential by stimulating the nuclear factorerythyroid-2-related
factor (Nrf2), the binding protein responsible
for the antioxidant response in the body. This exclusive blend of
turmeric, pterostilbene, resveratrol, and broccoli seed extract
has a wide array of biological activity including direct free radical
scavenging potential as well as inducing intracellular antioxidant
production. These potent phytochemicals are the basis of
many “superfoods” and have extensive, peer-reviewed research
supporting their dramatic effect on cell health and longevity.
*The USP is a scientific organization that sets standards for the identity,
strength, quality and purity of medicines, food ingredients and dietary
supplements, manufactured, distributed and consumed worldwide.
