This men's formula contains optimum levels of over 35 vitamins, minerals, enzymes, antioxidants and herbal extracts in just three easy-to-swallow vegetarian capsules per day. It is made from the highest quality ingredients and contains the proper ratios of vitamins, minerals and nutrients to energize, provide relief from stress, protect against organ degeneration, and aid in the prevention of chronic disease. In addition, it contains betaine hydrochloride (HCL) and a digestive enzyme blend to help maximize absorption. Betaine HCL helps compensate for low stomach acid production, something traditionally seen amongst the elderly, but becoming increasingly common in younger people.
This formula contains vitamin E, selenium, zinc, lycopene, BerryRich and saw palmetto for optimal prostate support as well as overall health. Saw palmetto extract, from the fruit of Serenoa repens, is rich in fatty acids and phytosterols, and has been proven useful in the prevention and treatment of urinary tract and prostate problems, including enlarged prostate. BerryRich is a superior combination of whole fruit concentrates from grape, pomegranate, strawberry, cranberry, blueberry, raspberry and bilberry, and provides a broad spectrum of antioxidants to quench damaging free radicals. The antioxidant power of BerryRich is reinforced by other healing and revitalizing vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients.
Heart disease affects more men than women, so preventing and reducing the risk factors for this disease is essential. The Men's 50+ Formula contains critical heart-health nutrients such as B3, B6, folic acid, calcium and magnesium to support healthy homocysteine, cholesterol, and triglyceride levels, and to reduce oxidative stress. This formula also has meaningful levels of BerryRich, CoQ10 and lutein, all known for their importance to heart health. The antioxidants in BerryRich help inhibit LDL oxidation, increase blood flow, and prevent hardening of the arteries.
CoQ10 provides cells throughout the body with energy. Certain cells, like those in the heart, need more energy. The ability to produce CoQ10 declines with age and certain cholesterol-lowering medications can further deplete the body of CoQ10. Lutein, well-known for enhancing eye function, also helps reduce atherosclerotic lesions (small fatty deposits on the inner arterial walls). For additional antioxidant protection and to support healthy cholesterol levels, the Men's 50+ Formula includes curcumin. The powerful antioxidant action of the anthocyanins in BlueRich helps prevent blood vessel damage and exciting new research shows that blueberry anthocyanins may help prevent cognitive decline.
Suboptimal intake of vitamins, minerals and nutrients are common in the general population, especially in the elderly, and is a risk factor in the development of chronic diseases. Cognitive decline and advanced macular degeneration (AMD) are two of the most common conditions that affect older people. The Men's 50+ Formula contains BlueRich, lutein and other key nutrients that promote healthy aging and reduce the risk of these debilitating diseases. In the elderly, cognitive function is directly related to nutritional status. Supplementing with essential C and B vitamins, and minerals such as zinc and selenium, goes a long way towards reducing the risk of cognitive dysfunction.
In addition to BerryRich, BlueRich provides potent antioxidant protection for the brain against free radicals and inflammation, both of which contribute to deficits in cognitive and motor function. The antioxidant compounds found in BlueRich are readily absorbed into the bloodstream, then cross into the brain where they influence regions involved in memory and motor function; suggesting their therapeutic potential against Parkinson's and Alzheimer's.
