Microplex VMz Food Nutrient Complex
While it is abundantly clear that diets in the United States and in many developed countries include adequate and even an overabundance of calories, a growing body of evidence shows that even as we eat more, we are obtaining less of the essential nutrients vital for optimal health. Over-processed, calorie-rich, nutrient-poor food choices threaten to make us fat even as our bodies are deprived of vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients. The American Medical Association acknowledges the prudence of taking nutritional supplements, admitting that while “the clinical syndromes of vitamin deficiencies are unusual in Western societies, suboptimal vitamin status is not” (Journal of the American Medical Association, June 19, 2002).
Microplex VMz is a comprehensive array of vitamins and minerals presented in a food nutrient complex that are essential for normal growth, function, and maintenance of cells.* Microplex VMz provides a balanced blend of essential antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E; an energy complex of B vitamins; and 800 IU of vitamin D.* It also contains important chelated minerals for metabolism and the essential bone nutrients calcium, magnesium, and zinc.*
Most of the vitamins and minerals absorbed in our bodies come from the food we eat. Sometimes vitamins and minerals are isolated or synthetically constructed and may become more difficult for our bodies to recognize and absorb as food nutrients. The vitamins in Microplex VMz are presented in a patented glycoprotein matrix to help promote bioavailability. To make a vitamin glycoprotein compound, a vitamin is introduced to a culture of lactobacillus and yeast. As it grows, the yeast metabolizes and binds the vitamin into its protein matrix, making the vitamin more recognizable as food in the digestive process. The food-derived minerals in Microplex VMz are similarly cultured in yeast to promote bioavailability.
Digestion of the vitamins and minerals in Microplex VMz is also enhanced by the presence of a blend of digestive enzymes and mineral cofactors that are necessary for proper assimilation of food nutrients.*
doTERRA Microplex VMz represents the gold standard in vitamin and mineral supplementation. The formula is encapsulated in sodium laurylsulfate free vegetable capsules and does not contain wheat or milk products. It also contains the doTERRA tummy tamer blend of Peppermint, Ginger, and Caraway seed botanical extract to help calm the stomach.*
Microplex VMz is formulated to be used daily with doTERRA Alpha CRS+® and xEO Mega® as a comprehensive dietary supplement foundation for a lifetime of vitality and wellness.
xEO Mega Essential Oil Omega Complex
Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) are nutrients required for many key functions in the human body, including cell growth, brain development, muscle activity, immune function, joint health, and many others.* While some fatty acids can be produced inside the body, “essential” fatty acids cannot be produced by our bodies; therefore, we rely on the food we eat to supply these important nutrients.
The most common of the essential fatty acids are omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. Modern science suggests that for optimal health, humans should consume a one-to-one ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 essential fatty acids. Unfortunately, due to the abundance of omega-6 fatty acids in vegetable oils and our increasing consumption of fried and fatty foods, a typical Western diet includes omega-6 fatty acids in a ratio as high as 20 to 1! While our diets must include some omega-6 fatty acids as essential nutrients for life, the disproportionate consumption of omega-6 fatty acids and other unhealthy hydrogenated or trans fats has been linked to poor health. Studies also link low intake of omega-3 fatty acids to reduced mood and cognitive function.
Conversely, there is an enormous body of scientific evidence supporting the health benefits of increasing the dietary intake of omega-3 fatty acids. Studies have shown that increasing omega-3 fatty acid consumption has a positive effect on cardiovascular health and brain function, and promotes healthy immune function.* Increased consumption of omega-3 fatty acids has also been shown to have a positive impact on joint health and mobility, and skin health.*
Restoring the balance between omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids is an important step in keeping your body healthy. This can be done by decreasing your intake of unhealthy foods high in omega-6 fatty acids and increasing your intake of foods that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Fish is an excellent source of dietary omega-3 fatty acids, but omega-3s can also be found in canola oil and the oils of some nuts and seeds. Because of growing anxiety over the levels of toxins and heavy metals present in the world’s oceans, daily fish consumption as a source of omega-3 fatty acids is not acceptable to some consumers. In fact, many nutritional experts warn against frequent fish consumption to prevent exposure to these toxic pollutants. One serving of xEO Mega® provides 900 milligrams of pure, micro-filtered marine lipids with 300 mg of EPA, 300 mg of DHA, and 70 mg of other omega- 3s. Added to this is 200 mg of plant-based, omega-3 rich, Echium seed oil, along with 50 mg of pomegranate seed oil.
CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® Essential Oils
xEO Mega also contains a proprietary blend of doTERRA CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils that work in harmony with the omega-3 fatty acids in xEO Mega. Clove oil and the constituent thymol in Thyme oil are powerful antioxidants that work to enhance the overall efficacy of xEO Mega by delivering protection against oxidation.* The essential oil blend also supports healthy cellular response to oxidative stress and healthy immune function and has digestive calming effects,* which makes taking xEO Mega as pleasant as it is healthful. The essential oils in xEO Mega also function as a natural preservative system that protects the omega-3 fatty acids and lipid-soluble vitamins from oxidizing and going rancid.
doTERRA uses the best quality marine omega-3 oils in the world. Both oils are from top Norwegian manufacturers, every single batch is tested for over 250 contaminants, and both oils are certified sustainable by the prestigious Friend of the Sea organization in Europe.
ALA and SDA
xEO Mega delivers a unique source of landbased oils derived from the Echium (Echium plantagineum) seed. Our cold-pressed Echium seed oil provides a concentrated source of both ALA and SDA, which the body can convert more easily to EPA. Both ALA and SDA promote cardiovascular health.* ALA and SDA are produced by many plants, but because of the low amount of vegetables consumed in the standard American diet, they are often not consumed in adequate amounts. Our Echium seed oil also delivers GLA, which may help support the health of joints, lungs, and the nervous system.*
Astaxanthin and Vitamin E
Omega-3 fatty acids are important for circulatory and brain health.* The brain is made up of essential lipids that, as with the free lipids traveling in the circulatory system, are prone to degradation through free-radical oxidation. xEO Mega includes the powerful antioxidant carotenoid astaxanthin that helps protect against lipid oxidation in the brain and throughout the circulatory system.* Astaxanthin provides powerful antioxidant and circulatory benefits, supports eye health, improves muscle strength and endurance, aids the liver and digestive system, supports skin health, and promotes healthy immune function.*
The astaxanthin used in xEO Mega is a standardized extract of microalgae cultivated in a pure water system and activated by light. In response to exposure to light, the microalgae produces astaxanthin as a defense mechanism against oxidation. The microalgae changes from a light green to a deep crimson red. The astaxanthin is then extracted from the microalgae, microfiltered, and standardized for potency. The astaxanthin is coupled with natural vitamin E to provide additional circulatory and systemic benefits as powerful antioxidant additions to the antioxidant essential oils in xEO Mega.*
xEO Mega also includes 800 IU of natural vitamin D. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin present in a limited number of foods such as fish, beef liver, cheese, egg yolks, and fortified dairy products. It can also be synthesized in the body when triggered by exposure to sunlight. Vitamin D plays an essential role in bone health and growth.* As with the omega-3 fatty acids in xEO Mega, vitamin D also plays an important role in promoting healthy immune function and a healthy response to oxidative stress.*
xEO Mega is a revolutionary approach to supplementing our diets with omega-3 fatty acids and other fat-soluble nutrients that help support circulatory health, brain health* and optimal immune function among many other systemic benefits.* This unique formula of lipid-soluble nutrients is packaged in small, vegetarian-friendly softgels. xEO Mega is formulated to be used daily with Microplex VMz® as a comprehensive dietary supplement foundation for a lifetime of vitality and wellness.
Alpha CRS+ Cellular Vitality Complex
Cells are the basic building blocks of all life. Healthy tissues, organs, and, ultimately, healthy organisms depend on cellular reproduction and specialized function, energy production, and timely cell death when cells are not functioning at optimal levels. As we age, cellular function can deteriorate and we gradually begin to experience decreased energy and performance.
Additionally, cellular stressors, including oxidative stress to cellular DNA and other key cell structures, challenge cellular heath. Providing cells with essential nutrients and metabolic factors of cellular energy and protecting our cells from toxic stressors supports healthy cell function, vitality, and wellness.*
DNA and Cellular Function
The human body is made up of millions of specialized cells that are in constant communication with each other through complex chemical pathways. All activity in and between cells is regulated by the DNA in the nucleus of each cell. Healthy cells reproduce, perform specialized functions, and set in motion a sequence of self-destruction when their usefulness declines, making way for new, healthy cells. If cellular DNA or other critical cell structures are damaged, this process of renewal can be compromised.*
Mitochondria and Cellular Energy
DNA also regulates the proliferation of mitochondria in cells. Mitochondria are cellular structures in which oxygen and food nutrients are metabolized to create energy for life. Healthy mitochondria function like well-tuned engines, producing efficient power with less exhaust (metabolic waste). As we age, the number and efficiency of cellular mitochondria can decrease, resulting in decreased energy and performance. Unhealthy mitochondria also put out more toxic exhaust in the form of free-radical molecules that can damage cellular DNA, setting off a cascading oxidative chain reaction that can damage critical cell structures and disrupt healthy cell function.
Free-radical molecules are unstable molecules with one or more unpaired electrons. When free-radical molecules come in contact with stable molecules, they steal electrons from them turning stable molecules into unstable free-radical molecules that, in turn, steal electrons from other stable molecules. This cascading process of free-radical damage is called oxidation. Free-radical damage to cells can come from external and internal sources, but the primary free-radical or oxidative stress to cellular DNA comes from cellular metabolism of energy. When cellular DNA and other critical cell structures are damaged by free-radical molecules, cells do not function optimally.
Antioxidants and Polyphenols
Cells are equipped to defend against oxidative damage by employing electron-rich molecules called antioxidants to neutralize free-radical molecules. Cells use antioxidants derived from the foods we eat and manufacture other antioxidants to keep oxidative stress in check. Reducing oxidative damage to cellular DNA and other important cell structures will support healthy cell function.* Antioxidants are found in great variety and abundance in plants and are plentiful in colorful fruits and vegetables. Polyphenols are a particularly powerful group of antioxidants that provide protection against free-radical damage to cellular DNA.* They have a very high capacity (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity or ORAC) to neutralize free-radical molecules and have been studied for a number of longevity health benefits.*
Endogenous Antioxidant Protection
The antioxidants we consume in food are called exogenous antioxidants. The body is also capable of creating other antioxidants called endogenous antioxidants. Endogenous antioxidants often have very short life cycles and are used very rapidly in metabolic processes. In addition to providing exogenous antioxidant protection against free-radical damage to cells, polyphenols also support the endogenous production and recycling of antioxidants made in the body.*
Healthy Oxidative Stress
Left unchecked, exposure to high levels of free radicals can leave the body more vulnerable to the oxidative damage of free radical molecules. Lowering oxidative stress in cells can help maintain healthy cellular function. Certain food nutrients also have been demonstrated to help the body recover from occasional high exposure to free radicals.
doTERRA Alpha CRS+ Cellular Vitality Complex is a proprietary dietary supplement formulated with potent levels of powerful polyphenols that support healthy cell function by providing antioxidant protection to cellular DNA and other critical cell structures.* The cellular longevity polyphenol blend found in Alpha CRS+ includes concentrated extracts of baicalin from scutellaria root, resveratrol from Polygonum cuspidatum, ellagic acid from pomegranate, proanthocyanidins from grape seeds, curcumin from turmeric root, and silymarin from milk thistle to support the body’s internal production of endogenous antioxidants such as glutathione.*
The blend also includes a proprietary blend of boswellic acid and bromelain protease enzyme that support healthy cellular function.*
And because vitality means feeling younger not just living longer, Alpha CRS+ also includes a cellular energy blend of important metabolic factors of cellular energy, including coenzyme Q10, quercetin, alpha-lipoic acid, and acetyl-Lcarnitine.* Alpha CRS+ also includes a botanical extract of Ginko biloba to help support mental clarity and energy.* Combining potent levels of polyphenol antioxidants with metabolic factors of cellular energy production not only supports healthy proliferation of mitochondria in cells, it also supports efficient energy production and management of free-radical by-products of energy metabolism.*
Alpha CRS+ is formulated to be used daily with xEO Mega® or vEO Mega® and Microplex MVp™ as a comprehensive dietary supplement foundation for a lifetime of vitality and wellness.* Coupled with doTERRA CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade®essential oils and a commitment to the doTERRA Wellness Lifestyle of eating right, exercising, resting and managing stress, reducing toxic load, informed self care, and proactive health care, Alpha CRS+ will help support you and your goals to look, feel, and live younger, longer
