Antioxidant Supplement Formulation

Based on PMC’s research credibility and clinical experience in antioxidant science, the individualized antioxidant formulations are known to be safe and expected to be effective for a variety of conditions, risks, and optimal health. All PMC antioxidant formulations are patent-protected and consumer safe.

Supplements Contain

Dietary and Endogenous Antioxidant Micronutrients

  • PMC products contain dietary as well as endogenous (body-made) antioxidant micronutrients, and are administered in the proper dosing schedule. It is known that water-soluble micronutrients have a half-life of four to six hours and fat-soluble constituents have a half-life of six to eight hours. Therefore, to maintain a steady state level of proper antioxidants in the body, the supplements must be taken twice daily, preferably in the morning and in the evening.

Vitamin C as Calcium Ascorbate

  • PMC products have vitamin C exclusively in the form of calcium ascorbate, which acts as a mild base in the body and does not cause the effects such as stomach upset, diarrhea or kidney problems usually associated with ascorbic acid.

Body Optimized Vitamin E

  • PMC products have combined alpha tocopherol and alpha tocopheryl succinate in the proper proportion to optimize the antioxidant effect of vitamin E in all compartments of the body.

Vitamin A and Mixed Carotenoids in Proper Proportion

  • PMC products include 3,000 I.U. of vitamin A and mixed carotenoids from natural sources in the daily formulation. It has been well shown that the proper proportions of vitamin A and mixed carotenoids in adequate doses is critical to completely achieve the cellular/genetic effects necessary for antioxidant function. Both vitamin A and mixed carotenoids in part have different mechanisms of action.

B-Vitamins, Selenium, Zinc and Chromium

  • PMC products contain appropriate doses of B-vitamins, selenium, zinc and chromium.

Appropriate Natural or Synthetic Micronutirent Forms

  • PMC products have the appropriate natural or synthetic forms of each micronutrient. For example, vitamin E and mixed carotenoids must be from natural sources to be beneficial. The synthetic forms are ineffective. In contrast, calcium should be given in the synthetic form since the natural state generally includes undesirable contaminants.

Citrate Form of Magnesium

  • PMC products have only included the citrate form of magnesium to achieve maximum calcium absorption.

Supplements Do Not Contain

Do NOT Contain Iron, Copper or Manganese

  • PMC products do not contain iron, copper or manganese. These minerals are known to interact with vitamin C and produce excess free radicals.

Do NOT Contain Inositol, Choline and Methionine

  • PMC formulations do not contain inositol, choline and methionine which are common in commercial formulations. Even a modest American diet provides 1gm of inositol and 400-800mg of choline and methionine on a daily basis. Therefore, adding these chemicals serve no useful purpose and are perhaps only added to make the label look “more complete”.

Do NOT Contain Extra Compounds

  • PMC formulations do not contain unnecessary, unproven, or potentially harmful constituents, and have not shown any interaction with prescription medications or other over-the-counter products. The formulations have been tested in animal and human studies by Department of Defense institutions, have been utilized by consumers for over 15 years, and have demonstrated safety and benefit.

Do NOT Include Unnecessary Heavy Metals

  • PMC products do not include unnecessary heavy metals such as molybdenum, vanadium and zirconium.
