Testing the effectiveness of Nutraceuticals in raising serum vitamin, mineral and amino acid levels in patients 26 to 75 years of age
Prior to adding Therapeutic phyto-nutrients to ReaLife+TM, Optimal Health Research, Inc, conducted a clinical study of 250 patients to determine the safety and effectiveness of using high quality nutrients.
The amounts as well as the forms of each nutrient in the study were selected to help ensure a high degree of nutrient bioavailability, tolerance, and safety with daily, long term use. A broad spectrum of essential vitamins, minerals, and trace elements were included to take best advantage of the combined synergies and related metabolic functions of these nutrients.
This study was designed as a random selection of 250 patients from a pool of 1400 (200 given supplements in ReaLife+TM and 50 control). The patients had a medical history taken and a physical examination preformed that included serum levels to serve as a base line.
This study consisted of an initial serum draw and subsequent draws at 1 month, 2 months and 3 months. Vitamins tested included A, E, B1, B2, B6, B12, C, D. Minerals were Calcium and Iron. IGF1 and FT3 were included to assess any increase in growth hormone and thyroid function.
The patient population ranged in age from 26 to 75 with a mean age of 49.7years. The average of the females was 48.8 years while the males were 51.2 years. There were 117 females in the study as compared to 132 males.
The patients taking these supplements experienced an overall serum increase of 31.3% at three months. This increase was consistent over the range of testing.
This study has demonstrated the effectiveness of supplements in treating patients with low serum levels of vitamin, mineral and/or amino acids with no reported negative side-effects.
