- A full spectrum of vitamins and minerals
- Provides rate-limiting nutrients for glutathione production, necessary for xenobiotic detoxification
- Contains clinical doses of resveratrol, lipoic acid, CoQ10, milk thistle, and green tea extract
- Broad-spectrum antioxidant support, including bilberry and citrus extracts, lipoic acid, lycopene, and lutein
- Highly bioactive and bioavailable nutrients, such as pyridoxal-5-phosphate and vitamin K2 (Menaquinone 7)
BioFoundation-G is a comprehensive vitamin and mineral supplement to support healthy living in the modern world. A broad-spectrum and highly bioavailable multivitamin and mineral, BioFoundation-G’s formulation uses clinically driven research to provide the nutritional foundation needed for the modern environment. This complete multivitamin and mineral formula contains clinical doses of nutrients such as N-acetyl-cysteine and R-alpha-lipoic acid, well established to increase cellular levels of glutathione, the most prevalent intercellular antioxidant.1,2,3 Glutathione is one of the most important conjugators of numerous environmental and endogenous toxins. It is known to be depleted not only by xenobiotics but also by chronic conditions such as inflammatory and neurodegenerative diseases.4,5,6,7,8
Glutathione support is linked to lower rates of cell death and apoptosis.9 BioFoundation-G provides physiologically relevant doses of hepatoprotectors such as milk thistle, antioxidants, mitochondrial bioenergetic enhancers such as CoQ10, and co-factors for critical detoxification enzymes.10,11 It also provides the biological modifiers natural trans-resveratrol and green tea phytosome, two nutrients shown to have anti-inflammatory, weight management, anti-aging, cardiovascular, and stress-related benefits.12,13,14,15
