Ultra Preventive® Teen
with EZ Swallow Technology
Ultra Preventive Teen, provided by Douglas Laboratories®, is unique vitamin-mineral-trace element supplement designed for teenagers. The EZ swallow tablets are naturally coated with a vanilla flavor, and smaller in size than adult tablets. The EZ tablets provide over 30 vitamins, minerals, trace elements and other nutrients in bioavailable forms, such as Metafolin®, the bioactive form of folate.
Studies show that a high percentage of children in North America and other developed countries eat less than the minimum daily allowance of many essential nutrients. Adequate amounts and proper balance of these nutrients are needed not only for maintaining good health, but also for satisfying the special nutritional demands of growth and development during childhood. Ultra Preventive Teen has been carefully designed and formulated to contain the right proportions of vitamins, minerals, and trace elements without danger of toxic build-up and without side effects. Each ingredient is selected in consideration of its absorbability, competitive relationship with other nutrients, allergenic potential, and long-term safety.
Metafolin ® or 5-MTHF is the naturally occurring, predominant form of folate commonly found in cells and is essential for overall health, as it participates as a cofactor in a reaction that involves the remethylation of homocysteine to methionine. Unlike synthetic folic acid, 5-MTHF can be used directly by the body, without the need for an additional conversion via the enzyme (5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR)). In certain populations, the body’s ability to convert folic acid to 5-MTHF by use of this enzyme may be compromised due to genetic differences. Metafolin® contains only the S isomer of 5-MTHF and has been shown to be the only form of folate to be able to cross the blood-brain barrier.
Ultra Preventive Teen is ideal for teenagers that are at risk for vitamin, mineral and trace element deficiencies due to sub-optimal dietary intake and life style.
