SAGE HEALTH ESSENTIAL NUTRITION PACK
Our essential nutrition is a convenient daily pack that contains a 30 day supply and combines 4 important supplements to help support optimal health.
1) Ultra Preventive X multivitamin/mineral
Ultra Preventive® X is a comprehensive multivitamin/mineral combination with a powerful antioxidant blend of organic fruits and vegetables. This unique formula offers adequate Vitamin D and the body’s preferred form of readily bioavailable folate, Metafolin®. Metafolin is a patented, natural form of (6S) 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) is the naturally occurring, predominant form of folate commonly found in cells and is essential for overall health, as it participates as a cofactor in a reaction that involves the remethylation of homocysteine to methionine. Unlike synthetic folic acid, 5-MTHF can be used directly by the body, without the need for an additional conversion via the enzyme (5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR)). In certain populations, the body’s ability
to convert folic acid to 5-MTHF by use of this enzyme may be compromised due to genetic differences. Metafolin® contains only the S isomer of 5-MTHF and has been shown to be the only form of folate to be able to cross the blood-brain barrier.
Opti-EPA™ enteric-coated softgels, primary importance for the structural integrity of neuronal membranes. DHA is essential for brain and visual development and is vital throughout pregnancy to support fetal brain growth and formation of the retina and visual cortex. As the most abundant fatty acid in the brain, adequate amounts of DHA are needed throughout infancy and adulthood for ongoing optimal function. Low levels of DHA may adversely influence behavior and mental performance, and have been correlated with changes in disposition, memory loss, and visual and other neurological conditions.
Studies have shown that DHA, along with EPA may play an important role in cardiovascular health. One landmark study, the GISSI-Prevenzione Trial, involved over 11,000 people who had already survived myocardial infarction. This was the first large scale trial that showed supplementation of essential fatty acids significantly lowered the risk of death, and that use of this supplement was safe. The exact reasons for such dramatic benefits with respect to heart disease remains unknown, but may be related in part to the ability of fish oil to support healthy inflammatory processes. Some researchers believe that the body’s inflammatory response to certain factors, along with a fatty diet, can increase the amount of plaque in the arteries, leading to atherosclerosis. Studies indicate that EPA and DHA can act as precursors for the anti-inflammatory prostaglandins E1 and E3, and decrease the formation of pro-inflammatory prostaglandin E2 and thromboxane A2.
Scientists have also suggested that omega-3 fatty acids can have a direct cardiac effect on arrhythmogenesis. Omega- 3 fatty acids may be able to modify sodium channels by binding to the channel proteins. This could then help support healthy heart rhythms. Additionally, Opti-EPA is enteric-coated, significantly reducing the “fishy” taste sometimes associated with marine lipid supplements.
3) Multi-Probiotic 4000
Multi-Probiotic provides 4 billion live, beneficial intestinal micro-organisms for gastrointestinal and immune health. Probiotic dietary lactobacilli colonize the intestinal tract, depending on the specific bacterium-to-host affinity. Bacteria are continually in competition for colonization space. The original bacterial colonies have an advantage over transient bacteria. Nevertheless, the composition of the intestinal microflora is dynamic and constantly changing. If harmful microorganisms proliferate, the equilibrium is disturbed, and it becomes difficult even for indigenous bacteria to maintain their necessary territory to colonize the intestine. Antibiotics tend to kill off both beneficial and harmful bacteria, and thus may also disturb the normal, healthy balance of intestinal microorganisms. †
4) Citrus Solu-Q Coenzyme Q10 formula with VESIsorb technology
Citrus Solu-Q™ is a liquid filled capsule containing natural coenzyme Q10 in a patented, self-assembling nano-colloid system for enhanced absorption. When mixed with an aqueous system, this patented technology results in the formation of a nano-colloid containing solubilized CoQ10. This colloidal delivery system contains a highly uniform distribution of droplets that are typically less than 100 nm in diameter, and allows for enhanced absorption of coenzyme Q10. †
STANDARD PROCESS PURIFICATION PROGRAM

The Standard American Diet (S.A.D.) is deficient in omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFA), especially, EPA & DHA. The best dietary source of EPA & DHA is non-farmed (wild) fatty fish. For those who do not eat much wild fatty fish or have difficulty with fish oil pills, nanoepaDHA offers the superior, more complete and incredibly delicious alternative. And because nanoepaDHA is emulsified, it is up to 3x more absorbable and potent!As fatty fish are also the best dietary source of Vitamin D3, emulsified D3 has been added. Because fish oils are susceptible to oxidation, both in the bottle and the body, a powerful emulsified natural vitamin E complex (4 tocotrienols and 4
