In part 1 of this series we discovered that the Nutrilite Double X Vitamin/Mineral/Phytonutrient:
- is made from plant concentrates.
- includes free radical fighters – with broad and targeted power.
- offers true enzyme defense.
- provides real energy, all day.
Let’s explore in detail what all of this really means to you and your family.
It appears that many multivitamins offer the standard array of vitamins and minerals, many at 100% of the Recommended Daily Intake (RDI).
So what makes Double X different?
Double X adds phytonutrients from plant concentrates, way more than other multivitamins do. Double X includes 12 vitamins, 10 minerals, and 20 plant concentrates. No other multivitamin comes close.
Free radical fighters – with broad power.
You’ve heard about them in the news: free radicals are rogue oxygen molecules that attack your healthy cells, steal an electron, and begin a chain reaction of instability and damage.
Free radicals are everywhere, generated by air pollution, sunshine, X-rays, pesticides, car exhaust, cigarette smoke, even breathing and exercise.
Science now knows that by increasing our intake of free radical fighters, called antioxidants, we can defend ourselves – right down to our cells – against this constant attack.
Health Canada has adopted a way to measure the raw power of antioxidants to help fight the good fight. This measure is called the oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC). It measures how well the antioxidants mop up free radicals. It is recommended that we all get between 3,000 and 5,000 ORAC units daily, preferably from whole, fresh fruits and vegetables. But the average person only gets between 1,200 and 1,640 ORAC units a day.
The Double X multivitamin/mineral/phytonutrient delivers an average of over 3,000 ORAC units in each daily serving.
Free radical fighters – with targeted power.
In extensive testing of over 100 different plant concentrates, Nutrilite scientists identified 20 plant concentrates that would be included in the Double X formula.
These included plant concentrates that targeted and protected against five specific categories of free radicals.
- Hydroxyl – Pesticides, pollution (out performed competition)
- Peroxyl – Aging, X-rays (out performed competition)
- Peroxynitrite – Smoke, exhaust (out performed competition)
- Superoxide – Cellular metabolism (out performed competition)
- Singlet Oxygen – Exercise, UV rays (equaled competition)
Hydroxyl, peroxyl, peroxynitrite, superoxide, and singlet oxygen are 5 harmful free radical categories implicated in many health disorders.
Free radicals are generated by compounds found everywhere, from breathing to sunshine, from X-rays to car exhaust, from air pollution to pesticides and cigarette smoke. We’re always under attack, but with Double X, we can help our bodies fight free radicals.
Plants have natural mechanisms to help protect themselves against harmful pests or unfavorable growing conditions. Similarly, there are some naturally occurring compounds in the foods we eat every day that can be mildly harmful to humans. The human digestive system, therefore, develops enzymes to protect itself from these harmful compounds. These enzymes help our body differentiate between the good and bad compounds.
Double X contains cruciferous plant nutrients, such as broccoli and kale, that help produce Phase 2 enzymes. In fact, lab tests show that Double X assists the body’s natural production of Phase 2 enzymes. These enzymes break down the harmful compounds that enter our body by making them water soluble. Once these compounds are water soluble, they exit the body more quickly.
Real energy, all day.
Double X helps you unlock energy stores and metabolize carbs with B vitamins and concentrates from apples, alfalfa, basil, and acerola cherries. If you want sustained energy that lasts all day, not just a fast jolt, choose Double X.
Could you eat all this?
Even if you already eat a diet rich in fresh, whole, natural foods, you may not be getting everything you need. Why not? Because in order to get the vitamins and minerals your body needs, at the recommended levels, you’d have to eat a mountain of food every day. In fact, here’s just some of what you’d have to eat, daily, to get some of the nutrients found in Double X:
- Vitamin E of 33 T. of peanut butter
- Vitamin C of 7 cups of cantaloupe
- Folic Acid of 6 cups of baked beans
- Thiamine of 3.3 lbs. of pork loin
- Riboflavin of 7.75 quarts of low-fat milk
- Niacin of 1.5 chicken breasts
- Vitamin B6 of 22 bananas
- Magnesium of 4.2 cups of peas
- Vitamin B12 of 4.2 lbs. of ground beef
Well now you know what I know. Enjoy your Nutrilite Double X Vitamin/Mineral/Phytonutrient.
See you on the Beaches of the World,
