Physician’s Daily Essentials Formula

The Physician’s Daily Essentials Formula seeks to ensure that the body’s daily basic foundational needs are met.

The digestive enzymes and probiotics seek to enhance the absorption rate of nutrients from our system and aid digestion, while silymarin enhances liver health. The liver is especially important as it plays a crucial part in clearing toxins from our body.

The constituents of the Physician’s Daily Essentials Formula are as follows:

Multi-Vitamin Mix

When it comes to vitamins and minerals that your body needs, the best possible source is food. However, researchers are finding that some important vitamins and minerals are hard to get in a normal diet in amounts that are considered health supportive.

The constituents of Mulit-Vitamin Mix as well as some of their general uses are as follows:

Required by the nervous system and needed for normal brain function and for the synthesis of nucleic acids RNA and DNA. Activates many enzymes and aids in absorption of B12, in immune system function and in anti-body production.
Folate (as folic acid) Needed for energy production and formation of red blood cells. Strengthens immunity by aiding in the proper formation and functioning of white blood cells.
Vitamin B12 (as cyanocobalamin) Aids folic acid in regulating the formulation of red blood cells and helps in the utilization of iron. Required for proper digestion, absorption of foods and metabolism. Aids in cell formation and cellular longevity.
Biotin Aids in cell growth, fatty acid production, metabolism and in the utilization of other B-complex vitamins. Promotes healthy sweat glands, nerve tissue, bone marrow. Also relieves muscle pain.
Pantothenic Acid (as d-calcum pantothenate) Plays a role in the production of adrenal hormones and formation of antibodies, aids in metabolism and vitamin utilization. It is a component of coenzyme A, a molecule that is necessary for numerous chemical reactions.
Iodine (from kelp) Helps metabolise excess fat and important for physical and mental development. Needed for a healthy thyroid gland.
Magnesium (as magnesium oxide) Vital catalyst in enzyme activity, especially those involved in energy production.
Zinc (as OptiZinc Zinc DL-Methionine Complex) Required for protein synthesis and collagen formation and promotes a healthy immune system and healing of wounds. Important for prostate gland function and growth of reproductive organs.
Selenium (as L-selenomethionine) Antioxidant properties. Protects the immune system by preventing the formation of free radicals as it is a Cofactor for antioxidant enzymes, including glutathione peroxidase.
Copper (as copper gluconate) Among others aids in the formation of bone, hemoglobin and red blood cells. Involved in the healing process, energy production, hair and skin colouring and taste sensitivity.
Manganese (as manganese gluconate) Minute quantities needed for metabolism, healthy nerves, healthy immune system and blood sugar regulation.
Chromium (as Chromemate chromium polynicotinate) Involved in the metabolism of glucose and needed for energy.
Molybdenum (as molybendum amino acid chelate) Needed for nitrogen metabolism. Promotes normal cell function and aids in the activation of certain enzymes.
Potassium (as potassium ascorbate) This mineral is important for a healthy nervous system and a regular heart rhythm. It aids in proper muscle contraction and works with sodium to control the body’s balance
Alpha Carotene
Boron (as amino acid complex) Boron is needed in trace amounts for healthy bones and muscle growth as it assists in the production of natural steroid compounds within the body.
Choline bitartrate Needed for the proper transmission of the nerve impulses from the brain through the central nervous system, as well as for gallbladder regulation, liver function and lecithin formation.
Inositol Important for hair growth. Has a calming effect and may assist to reduce cholesterol levels and prevent hardening of arteries.
Lutein Antioxidant properties.
Lycopene Antioxidant properties.
PABA (para-aminobenzoic acid) One of the basic constituents of folate and helps in the assimilation of pantothenic acid. Antioxidant. Also acts as a co-enzyme in the breakdown and utilization of protein, and assists in the formation of red blood cel

 Super Omega 3 EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans & Olive Fruit Extract

Omega 3 is an essential fatty acid. An essential fatty acid is an acid that cannot be made by the body, but is necessary for health. Every living cell in the body needs essential fatty acids. They are used by the body for the production of prostaglandins, hormonelike substances that act as chemical messengers and regulators of the various body processes. Essential fatty acids are known to have desirable effects on many disorders, and improve skin and hair, reduce blood pressure, lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and aid in blood clot formation. Found in high concentrations in the brain, they aid in the transmission of nerve impulses and are needed for the normal development and functioning of the brain[1].

Omega 3 EPA/DHA is a fish oil concentrate that uses a patented extraction and purification process to improve stability, reduce contaminants and to protect against oxidation and peri-oxidation of the omega 3 fatty acids[2].

The monograph on Omega 3 issued by Natural Standard, The Authority on Integrative Medicine. Among others, it is rated a grade “A” (strong scientific evidence) for the lowering of coronary heart disease, reducing blood triglyceride levels, reducing blood pressure, improving morning stiffness and joint tenderness, and reducing the risk of secondary cardiovascular disease.

Enhanced Super Digestive Enzymes with Probiotics

Enzymes assist in practically all body functions and digestive enzymes break down food for energy. If you don’t make enough digestive enzymes, you may feel bloating, gas, indigestion, and/or pain. The aging process may cause a reduction in the body’s production of digestive enzymes. The primary digestive enzymes are protease (to digest protein), amylase (to digest carbohydrate), and lipase (to digest fat), and these are contained in this product. These enzymes function as biological catalysts to speed the reactions that break down food.

This product also comes with probiotics, which are living microorganisms of good bacteria which when administered, confer a health benefit on the host, and help to maintain the health of the intestinal tract and aid in digestion.

The monograph on Probiotics issued by the Natural Standard, The Authority on Integrative Medicine rates probiotics as grade “A” (strong scientific evidence) for using probiotics as a preventive for diarrhea originating in a healthcare setting in infants and in healthy adults. It may also reduce adverse risks of antibiotics in the intestinal environment. It is also rated a grade “A” for preventing atopic eczema/dermatitis in children. It is rated grade “B” (good scientific evidence”) for assisting cirrhosis patients, boosting immune enhancement, moderately reducing symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, preventing pancreatic infection and reducing sinusitis.

Silymarin

Extracted from the seeds of the milk thistle, silymarin has been used to treat liver disease. The active ingredients in milk thistle are the several types of flavonoids (powerful antioxidants), known collectively as silymarin. Silymarin helps guard the liver against oxidative damage, and protects the liver from toxins, drugs, and the effects of alcohol. It also promotes the growth of new liver cells. In addition, silymarin may act to increase the levels of glutathione, superoxide dismutase and catalase, potent antioxidant enzymes that protect the liver[3].

The monograph on Silymarin issued by the Natural Standard, The Authority on Integrative Medicine. Among others, it is rated as grade “B” (good scientific evidence) for helping in improving liver function for those with cirrhosis and/or liver disease.
