Key Ingredients Found In nutraMetrix DNA Miracles Isotonix OPC-3®*
Pycnogenol ® is a natural plant extract from the bark of the maritime pine tree, which grows exclusively along the coast of southwest France in Les Landes de Gascogne. This unspoiled, natural environment is the unique source of this pine bark. Pycnogenol is one of the most researched ingredients in the natural product marketplace. Published findings have demonstrated Pycnogenol's wide array of beneficial effects on the body, specifically in the realm of antioxidant health. Pine bark extract is an all-natural combination of proanthocyanidins, bioflavonoids, and organic acids. The extract has three basic properties, it is a powerful antioxidant, selectively binds to collagen and elastin, and promotes normal production of endothelial nitric oxide, which promotes normal dilation of blood vessels. Pycnogenol is especially beneficial to children who need neurological, metabolic, or digestive support because it neutralizes many free radicals before they cause oxidative stress. Its super-antioxidant capabilities help support healthy blood platelet activity, help maintain joint flexibility, promote cardiovascular health, help maintain healthy cholesterol levels, and support a healthy complexion.
Grape Seed Extract
Grape seed extract is typically extracted from the seeds of red grapes (instead of white), which have a high content of compounds known as oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs). Grape seed extract is extremely rich in polyphenols, compounds with high antioxidant activity. Children who need neurological, metabolic or digestive support would benefit from grape seed extract because it helps to reduce the stress of free radicals and minimize oxidative stress caused by environmental toxins.
Grape Skin Extract
Grape skin extract is a powerful antioxidant. The antioxidant properties of grape skin extract contribute to maintaining healthy circulation by strengthening capillaries, arteries, and veins, and promoting overall cardiovascular health. Scientific studies have further shown that the OPCs found in grape skin are particularly beneficial for supporting a healthy heart and blood vessels.
Bilberry extract is derived from the leaves and berry-like fruit of a common European shrub closely related to the blueberry. Extracts of the ripe berry contain flavonoid pigments known as anthocyanins, which are powerful antioxidants. Scientific studies confirm that bilberry extract supports healthy vision and venous circulation. Bilberry extract helps maintain healthy circulation by strengthening capillaries, arteries, and veins. Children who need neurological, metabolic or digestive support may benefit from bilberry extract because of its ability to support healthy vision and venous circulation as well as circulation to the brain.
Citrus Bioflavonoids Extract
Bioflavonoids are antioxidants found in certain plants that act as light filters, which protect the plant's DNA and other important macromolecules by absorbing ultraviolet radiation. They have been found to promote cardiovascular health and help maintain healthy circulation by strengthening capillaries, arteries, and veins. The ability for citrus bioflavioids to maintain healthy circulation by strengthening capillaries, arteries, and veins is also beneficial for helping maintain brain health and supports the production of neurotransmitters in children.
Hyaluronic acid plays an important role in tissue hydration, lubrication, and cellular function. It is a key component of collagen, and it promotes skin, joint and eye health. It may also support the normal production of synovial fluid and normal healing. Children who need neurological, metabolic or digestive support would benefit from the normal healing properties of hyaluronic acid.
Biotin, a water-soluble B vitamin, acts as a coenzyme in the metabolism of protein, fats, and carbohydrates. Biotin also supports various metabolic chemical conversions.
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin that has a number of biological functions. It supports normal tissue repair including skin and bone healing, as well as immune function. It is also a cofactor for the production of dopamine, a neurotransmitter. Supplementing with a proven antioxidant like vitamin C is helpful in combating free radicals. Vitamin C supports glutathione levels, another important antioxidant and detoxifying chemical in the body. Vitamin C can help to boost the immune system and provide strong antioxidant defense against any environmental or dietary stresses.
Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol)
Vitamin D supports efficient intestinal absorption of calcium and phosphorus, primarily in the duodenum and jejunum, by promoting synthesis of calcium-binding proteins which promote calcium absorption and retention. In addition to supporting strong bones, vitamin D promotes muscle strength and neuromuscular function. The main function of vitamin D is to support normal regulation of serum calcium concentrations.
Vitamin E (D-alpha-tocopheryl acetate)
Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin proven to be a strong antioxidant. It supports the structural and functional maintenance of skeletal, cardiac, and smooth muscle. It also promotes the normal formation of red blood cells, supports cardiovascular function and promotes immune health.
Calcium supports many functions in the body, including bone health, nerve transmission, muscle contraction, vascular contraction, vasodilation, glandular secretion, cell membrane and capillary permeability, enzyme reactions, respiration, renal function, and blood coagulation. Children who need neurological, metabolic or digestive support would benefit from a calcium supplement that supports strong bones and teeth, promotes healthy growth in adolescents, and plays a critical role in the contraction of skeletal and heart muscles.
Magnesium, an essential mineral, promotes the normal functioning of many enzymes, in particular those enzymes responsible for the production of neurotransmitters in the brain. Magnesium supports several hundred other metabolic pathways, including those involved in bone, protein and fatty acid formation, B-vitamin activation, muscle relaxation, blood clotting, and formation of adenosine triphosphate (ATP; on the high energy molecule that fuels enzymatic reactions throughout the body). Magnesium supports the production of neurotransmitters and also helps to maintain brain health.
