The average diet can be lacking in complete nutrition due to modern food-production techniques, poor food choices, and nutrient-depleting preparation methods.[1-3] Combine these with the toll of lifestyle stress and oxidizing chemicals—found in foods and the environment—and it becomes essential to ensure comprehensive foundation nutrition for the body. To achieve this, each cellophane-wrapped package of Revolution Essentials contains the following Revolution Health & Wellness Clinic formulas:*
Revolution Nutrients This high-quality, hypoallergenic, proprietary multivitamin/mineral blend is provided in vegetable capsules and not only features activated vitamin co-factors and patented Albion® chelated mineral complexes, but it also provides folate as a blend of folic acid and 5-MTHF. The form of 5-MTHF is Quatrefolic®, which is proven to have greater stability, solubility, and bioavailability over the calcium salt forms of 5-MTHF. The balanced nutrient profile in Multivitamin Formula w/o iron supports vitamin/mineral synergistic activity; antioxidant protection with vitamins C and E, selenium, and carotenoids; and Phase 1 detoxification.*
Antioxidant Formula This innovative blend of oxidation-fighting botanicals contains RosemarinXTM, derived from rosemary, and Berr-XTM, derived from a variety of berries. The technique known as ORAC measures antioxidant capacity, and units of an ORAC value are expressed as micromoles Trolox Equivalents per gram of a substance. Consuming an average of five to nine servings per day of a variety of fruits and vegetables yields 6000 Trolox Equivalents. This same amount is supplied by just two capsules (1000 mg) of Antioxidant Formula.*
OmegaHealth Each enteric-coated softgel contains 1.2 g of fish oil, delivering 360 mg eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and 240 mg docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). A rigorous, proprietary, temperature-controlled/vacuum technology is used for purification and manufacturing. Stringent verification processes reduce any potential health risks which may otherwise result from the oil’s exposure to rancid fats, toxins, bacteria, molds, yeasts, or very high levels of fat-soluble vitamins, such as vitamin A. Revolution Health & Wellness Clinic is proud to guarantee the quality, potency, purity, stability, and disintegration time of OmegaPure fish oils. In addition to complying with a host of federal and state regulations, our supplier also agrees to adhere to voluntary guidelines for manufacturing and to a code of ethics as members of the Council for Responsible Nutrition. Research suggests that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may support cardiovascular health. Studies have also shown that fish oils may support a healthy response to inflammation, promote optimal joint function, and support overall brain and nervous system function.*
We generally recommend taking 1 packet daily. However, some patients may need the benefit of 2 packets daily.
