Multivitamin featured in the NutriSearch Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements
September 3, 2014 — Douglas Laboratories, a provider of quality, science-based nutritional supplements for more than 50 years, is proud to announce that Ultra Preventive X has been named to NutriSearch’s “Best of the Best” list in the “NutriSearch Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements.” In addition to this distinction, Ultra Preventive X has consistently received a five-star product rating from NutriSearch.
The “NutriSearch Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements” criteria for this achievement are based on the quality of the product, research, formulation, and manufacturing. Additionally, the company must meet a pharmaceutical model for manufacturing and conduct label claim verification testing.
“We are honored to be recognized again by NutriSearch and to have Ultra Preventive X highlighted as a superior Multivitamin and Mineral formula,” said Tim Monk, Douglas Laboratories senior vice president of sales and marketing. “These milestones only add to our passion for providing the highest quality products to support health and wellness.”
One of Douglas Labs’ best-selling products, Ultra Preventive X is a unique formula that offers a blend of organic fruits and vegetables that lend to the completeness of the product, an important category for NutriSearch’s evaluation. This multivitamin also provides an antioxidant equivalent of four to five servings of fruits and vegetables, along with bioavailable forms of vitamins, minerals, trace elements, and beneficial nutrients, all selected while considering competitive relationship with other nutrients, allergenic potential, and tolerability.
“One unique ingredient used in the Ultra Preventive X formula is Metafolin,” said Dr. Andrew Halpner, Atrium’s vice president of product development and technical services. “Metafolin is a patented form of (6S) 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF). 5-MTHF is the naturally occurring, predominant form of folate commonly found in cells and is essential for overall health. Unlike folic acid, Metafolin can be used directly by the body without the need for additional conversion.”
