pioneer Vitamin/Mineral Supplement (V/MS) is a highly absorbable, versatile, broad spectrum nutritional supplement of uncompromising quality.
Developed by physicians and clinicians who specialize in nutrition and preventive medicine, pioneer V/MS reflects an integration of the most current, scientific nutritional studies with actual nutritional needs observed in many patients. pioneer V/MS combines generous amounts of highly bioavailable nutrients in one supplement. High potencies of these nutrients are usually available only when purchased individually. Suitable for adults and children over four years of age, V/MS is a superior prenatal formula as well.
Consider These Advantages:
1.All Known Vitamins, Minerals & Micronutrients. pioneer V/MS contains all of the recognized vitamins and minerals in significant ratios and amounts. Included are all known trace minerals, many of which are no longer present in foods grown in commercial soils.
2.High Antioxidant Protection. Environmental pollutants, radiation, certain drugs, consumption of charred foods and other stimuli can lead to the formation of many dangerous free radical molecules in the body. pioneer V/MS contains safe, yet very high levels of the antioxidant nutrients beta carotene, vitamin E, vitamin C and yeast-free selenium. These excellent free radical-quenching substances enhance the functioning of the body's natural defense systems. Manganese and zinc, well regarded as antioxidant helpers, are also present in high, yet safe amounts in pioneer V/MS.
3.Mixed Sources of Vitamins and Minerals. Five vitamins and eleven minerals in pioneer V/MS are derived from two or more forms of the same nutrient. pioneer includes multiple sources and/or forms of the same nutrient to enhance one's chances of biologically recognizing and utilizing that nutrient.
4.Versatile Daily Servings. Vitamin/Mineral Supplementis specifically designed for maximum versatility. People of many ages, lifestyles and levels of health, including pregnancy and lactation, can effectively and safely customize their individual daily requirements simply by varying the serving size:High-Stress Lifestyle / Sports and Fitness /Pregnancy and Lactation: 4-6 Tablets Supplement to a Good Natural Diet: 2-4 Tablets Children, Ages 4-12:1-2 Tablets
5.Hypoallergenic Ingredients and Natural Tableting Agents. pioneer V/MS is extremely well tolerat ed by most allergic individuals, and is recommended by many allergists. The formula excludes common food allergens such as gluten, wheat, yeast, dairy products, corn and eggs, and is free of synthetic preservatives, flavors, colors and other such substances. We use only natural tableting agents: silica, cellu lose, and vegetable magnesium stearate. pioneer V/MS may contain traces of rice, soy and citrus.
6.Chelated Minerals of High Bio availability. Although more expensive than commonly used forms, pioneer favors chelated minerals because current research suggests that these forms most closely resemble the body's own chemistry. This affinity enables chelated minerals to be more readily absorbed, more efficiently transported in the blood, and better utilized within body cells. We use: citrate, malate, picolinate, aspartate, glycinate, lysinate, methionate and glutathionate.
7.Superior Absorption of B12. Methylcobalamin is a preferred form of vitamin B12 that doesn't require enzymatic conversion by the body to become active.
8.Superior Calcium Absorption. Six tablets of V/MS contains 800 mg of calcium, with approximately 530 mg supplied by calcium citrate and calcium malate - forms clinically shown to offer superior absorption and utilization. The calcium in V/MS is balanced by 500 mg of high quality magnesium, providing a beneficial 1.6:1 ratio.
9.GTF Chromium. Chromium is a key component of Glucose Tolerance Factor, essential in maintaining normal blood sugar levels. PIONEEER V/MS supplies high levels (300 mcg) from three forms of chromium for efficient absorption.
10.Three Forms of Zinc. This includes one third each of lysinate, methionate and picolinate, the form most readily recognized by the body for absorption and transport. These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
11.Highly Absorbable Vitamins B2 and B6. The body must convert ordinary B vitamins to their coenzyme forms before they can be used in cellular activities. Supplementing directly with B coenzymes accelerates absorption and utilization. pioneer V/MS contains 5 'phosphate, coenzyme forms of vitamins B2 and B6.
12.Vitamin A with Mixed Carotenoids. pioneer V/MS contains a protective, antioxidant vitamin A blend, featuring 80% beta carotene and mixed carotenoids (from D. salina), and 20% pre-formed vitamin A, in the form of water dispersable retinyl palmitate.
13.Corn-Free Vitamin C. pioneer'S hypoallergenic vitamin C comes from ascorbic acid and naturally buffered potassium ascorbate, a form which is less likely to cause any stomach upset. Six tablets of V/MS provide a potent 1000 mg of vitamin C.
14.500 mg of Pantothenic Acid. Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) plays an important role in energy production and is essential for the synthesis of steroid hormones, hemoglobin and the neurotransmitter acetylcholine.
15.Folic Acid for Pregnancy and Lactation. Folic acid intake is known to be important in the prevention of neural tube defects. Six tablets of pioneer V/MS contain 100% of the RDA for pregnant and lactating women.
16.Highly Absorbable, Non-constipating Iron. V/MS contains low amounts (1.3 mg/tablet) of constipation-free, highly absorbable iron fumarate and citrate-glycinate. Note: Additional iron may be required during pregnancy and lactation. Please consult your physician.
17.Proteolytic Enzymes for Digestion and Anti-inflammatory Effects. Betaine HCl and natural enzymes from papaya and pineapple (noted for their anti-inflammatory properties) aid in nutrient digestion.
18.18 Naturally-Occuring Amino Acids. V/MS provides a wide variety of amino acids, including all nine essential amino acids, derived from brown rice and soybeans.
19.Rapid Disintegration. pioneer V/MS disinte grates completely in the digestive tract in about 30 minutes. Every batch is tested to ensure proper disintegration time.
20.Extensive Quality Control: Potency Guaranteed. Rigorous testing precedes and follows each phase of pioneer V/MS production. All raw materials are tested for purity and potency prior to tableting. The finished product is checked for disintegration time and confirmation of label potency through independent, third party testing.
