Your best health is built on a solid foundation of good nutrition. Vitamins, minerals, and a host of other nutrients come together to provide the necessary building blocks for optimum health. A balanced diet carefully planned and followed can provide most necessary elements, but unfortunately most Americans consume a diet too high in fat and useless calories and too low in the beneficial elements we need.

Researchers are more frequently acknowledging the role of quality supplements in helping us achieve our health goals. Vitabase Special 2 combines the proven benefits of a broad spectrum vitamin and mineral supplement with the nutritional elements of green superfoods and other natural supplements. Special 2 starts by providing the basic nutritional elements of health – vitamins and minerals. The body uses vitamins for normal development. As we age they become essential to the maintenance of organs, tissues, and cells. The majority of vitamins cannot be stored in the body so need to be supplied daily.

Super 2 provides twelve of the thirteen vitamins (Vitamin K is produced in the gut) plus choline, inositol, and PABA (nutrients associated with the B complex). To further enhance the work of vitamins, the formula includes citrus bioflavonoids and rutin, another flavonoid.

Minerals are essential to the development and maintenance of bone, muscles, and body fluids. Special 2 includes significant amounts of thirteen essential and trace minerals. Special 2 does not stop with just providing a quality blend of vitamins and minerals. The inclusion of additional natural supplements enhances the formula. Green superfoods spirulina, chlorella, barley grass, alfalfa juice, and octacosanol provide outstanding nutritional value.

Some experts believe spirulina, a blue-green algae, to be the most nutritious substance known to man. Each green superfood helps provide nutrition your body may be lacking. Super 2 also is a powerful source of antioxidants. Thousands of chemical reactions occur in the body constantly. Some of these produce a dangerous by-product called free-radicals. Free radicals can build up in the cells leading to cell death and premature aging as well as degenerative diseases. Free radicals can be eliminated by antioxidants.

Green tea extract, chlorophyll, and alpha lipoic acid are all general antioxidants (along with Vitamins C and E). Alpha lipoic acid is one of the strongest antioxidants and is valuable because it can work in both the fatty and water portions of the cell. Milk thistle is another antioxidant with particular benefit to the liver. Lutein helps protect the eye and lycopene supports eye health, heart health, and the prostate. Finally, Super 2 supports digestive health by including a variety of enzymes. Apple pectin provides fiber. Papain, from papaya, bromelain from pineapple, amylase and lipase all work to effectively break down a variety of foods, freeing nutrients for the body’s use.

Super 2 is available as an easy-to-swallow Vcap® or in tablet form.
