"Good nutrition plays an important role in how well we age. However, as we age the ability to digest and absorb nutrients decreases. Super Easymulti 45+ is formulated to be well absorbed with a full complement of vitamins and minerals, effective dosages of powerful antioxidants such as green tea, ginkgo biloba and CoQ10, as well as heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids – all in a convenient softgel.
Heart-Healthy. Super Easymulti 45+ comes complete with a therapeutic dose of 100 mg of Kaneka CoQ10 plus omega-3 fish oils and B vitamins that work together to keep your heart healthy. The heart muscle is one of the largest consumers of cellular energy and is extremely sensitive to CoQ10 deficiency [1,2]. CoQ10 is also an antioxidant that scavenges free radicals and prevents LDL cholesterol from oxidizing and clogging our arteries. In fact, the SymbioQ multi-centre clinical study showed that supplemental CoQ10 may significantly reduce the risk of experiencing a major cardiac event3.
Brain Power. To optimize brain power two things must occur. First, we must protect our brain cells from the damaging effects of free radicals. Super Easymulti 45+ contains the antioxidants green tea and grape seed extract to scavenge free radicals. Second, we must allow vital nutrients to reach our brain cells. Ginkgo biloba, CoQ10 and DHA from omega-3 rich fish oil improve blood flow and supply nutrients to the brain.
Liver Support. Maintaining a healthy liver is critical to ensure that it can metabolize dangerous toxins before they reach the rest of the body. Milk thistle has long been used as an herbal remedy to support liver function [4,5]. Several scientific studies suggest that silymarin , a flavonoid found in milk thistle, helps protect the liver from viruses and toxins, including certain drugs, such as NSAIDs, that may cause liver damage [7,8]. Silymarin has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and it may also help the liver to repair itself by stimulating the growth of new liver cells [4,5].
Made for you. Super Easymulti 45+ offers gender specific formulas to address the different nutritional requirements between men and women. As women enter pre-menopause, their ability to synthesize estrogen decreases. Eventually, the absence of estrogen in post-menopausal women leads to a variety of menopausal symptoms and osteoporosis. Borage oil may naturally help to alleviate some of these symptoms. Likewise, 50% of men over the age of 50 have symptoms of andropause as their testosterone production begins to decrease. Andropause can be accompanied by prostate enlargement and male pattern baldness. Clinical studies have shown that saw palmetto extract may provide prostate gland support and pumpkin seed oil may help to reduce the progression of male pattern baldness. Feel more from your multi. All of the high quality ingredients found in Super Easymulti 45+ are suspended in healthy omega oils using our proprietary Omega Suspension Technology™ (OST ). Studies have shown that oil passes easily through cell membranes; helping your body absorb the nutrients more efficiently for results you can feel." - Dr. Mary Nagai
