March is one of my favorite months of the year. The warmer weather starts to arrive, the flowers begin to bloom, and the world comes alive again after a long winter. The feeling of renewal always inspires me to refocus on my health; good nutrition, increasing movement, and a positive outlook. The mantras of chiropractic care seem to be inspired by spring!
Conveniently, March also happens to be National Nutrition Month. As such, I know I’m not the only one feeling the motivation to refocus my eating habits!
At Senara, we always do something to celebrate the month, focusing on optimal nutrition. This year, we are featuring OrthoMolecular Alpha Base Premier Packs as our Supplement of the Month in March. It is everything you need for good nutrition every day: a high-quality multivitamin, fish oil, and antioxidant supplements.
Read on below to learn more about the benefits of the Alpha Base Premier Packs, and stop in to get them while they are on sale! You can even schedule a consultation with Dr. Kramer to find out what your optimal nutrition levels are, test for food sensitivities, or receive a Nutritional IV Therapy treatment.

Good nutrition promotes health, while nutritional deficiencies can lead to many chronic diseases. Yet, many people underestimate the importance of achieving proper levels of essential nutrients each day. For the human body to complete vital daily tasks, it must be given a wide and complex variety of key nutrients. Nutritional deficiencies may be caused by drug-induced nutrient depletion, poor food choices, inadequate nutrient levels in soil, and improper food transport and food processing techniques. Combine this with the impact of a high-stress, fast-paced modern lifestyle, and ensuring foundational nutrition each day becomes essential.
Alpha Base Premier Packs provide a targeted combination of three high-concentration nutritional formulas in convenient, easy-to-take packets. Each pack includes Alpha Base Capsules without Iron, a hypo-allergenic, comprehensive, high-quality blend of bioavailable vitamins and minerals. Orthomega 820 is also included, and contains 430 mg of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and 390 mg of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) omega-3 fatty acids per soft gel. Finally, each pack includes Resvoxitrol, a unique combination of phytonutrients designed to enhance antioxidant potential in the body.


ESSENTIAL VITAMINS: ALPHA BASE PREMIER PACKS

Alpha Base Premier Packs provide a targeted combination of three high-concentration nutritional formulas in convenient, easy-to-take packets. Each pack includes Alpha Base Capsules without Iron, a hypo-allergenic, comprehensive, high-quality blend of bioavailable vitamins and minerals. This formula contains key USP* B vitamins like folate (as Quatrefolic™ -100% 5-MTHF), the biologically active form of folic acid. Albion® TRAACS® chelated minerals provide enhanced bioavailability. An optimal 2:1 ratio of magnesium to calcium ensures proper mineral balance. Orthomega 820 is also included, and contains 430 mg of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and 390 mg of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) omega-3 fatty acids per soft gel. Both EPA and DHA are provided as natural triglycerides, the preferred form for superior absorption. Finally, each pack includes Resvoxitrol, a unique combination of phytonutrients designed to enhance antioxidant potential in the body.

Overview

Good nutrition promotes health, while nutritional deficiencies can lead to many chronic diseases. Yet, many people underestimate the importance of achieving proper levels of essential nutrients each day. For the human body to complete vital daily tasks, it must be given a wide and complex variety of key nutrients. Comprehensive studies conducted by the USDA have revealed the average American diet is lacking in micronutrients. (1,2) Nutritional deficiencies may be caused by drug-induced nutrient depletion, poor food choices, inadequate nutrient levels in soil, and improper food transport and food processing techniques. Combine this with the impact of a high-stress, fast-paced modern lifestyle, and ensuring foundational nutrition each day becomes essential. Alpha Base Premier Packs make achieving optimal daily nutrition simple by vsupplying these cornerstone products in convenient packets.

Bioavailability†

The importance of bioavailability is clear: If consuming a multivitamin has little effect on improving the body’s nutrient balance, there is no reason to ingest it. A sure sign of an inferior
multivitamin is the use of cheap, poorly-absorbed, rock-salt minerals like calcium carbonate and magnesium oxide. These mineral forms have limited absorption and rely on adequate stomach acid to promote passive diffusion into the body. What’s more, because they remain in the intestines for an extended period of time, these forms can cause intestinal distress such as constipation (calcium carbonate) or diarrhea (magnesium oxide). Unlike many multivitamin options, Alpha Base Premier Packs include only the bioavailable forms of nutrients in precise, therapeutic amounts. Albion® TRAACS® mineral chelates have extensive clinical research proving their superior bioavailability, biologic activity, stability and tolerance. In a magnesium comparison study reported by Graff et al. at Weber State University, Albion’s® magnesium amino acid chelate had: (3)
  • 8.8 times greater absorption than magnesium oxide
  • 5.6 times greater absorption than magnesium sulfate
  • 2.3 times greater absorption than magnesium carbonate
In a clinical study comparing calcium absorption in humans, Albion’s® patented calcium chelate delivered the greatest absorption of all calcium sources tested (44% absorption). (4)

Alpha Base Capsules without Iron†

Alpha Base provides a full spectrum of highly-absorbed, Albion® mineral chelates. Albion® uses a patented process to create natural mineral compounds that significantly enhance mineral absorption. Comparison studies show significantly superior absorption of mineral chelates over other forms of minerals.

Metabolism and Energy Production†

Converting food into cellular energy is a nutrient-intensive process. Alpha Base provides substantial levels of B vitamins, which are prime coenzymes for the Kreb’s cycle, or the biochemical pathway responsible for maintaining energy production in the form of ATP (adenosine triphosphate). Alpha Base exclusively uses high-quality, USP* grade B vitamins ideal for those looking to boost energy levels and support stressful lifestyles. This includes the bioavailable form of folate (Quatrefolic™ – 100% 5-MTHF). 5-MTHF helps promote DNA repair, homocysteine balance, neurotransmitter production, hormone balance and healthy detoxification.

Broad-Spectrum Antioxidant Support†

The body is constantly exposed to free radicals and relies heavily on its antioxidant reserve for protection. Free radicals are generated by metabolic by-products and environmental exposure such as UV rays from the sun, air pollution and radiation. Alpha Base contains a balanced spectrum of antioxidant vitamins, such as vitamin C, mixed carotenoids, trace elements and nutrients, that up-regulate antioxidant supporting pathways in the body. They work synergistically to regenerate each other and maintain adequate levels of protective antioxidants throughout the body.

Orthomega 820†

Omega-3 fatty acids are deemed “essential” because the body needs them for proper health, but cannot produce them. Therefore, consumption of these healthy fats through diet and supplementation is extremely important. Omega-3 fatty acids are required for supporting proper blood flow, maintaining proper inflammatory balance and supporting mood, memory
and focus. Orthomega 820 is a high-concentration fish oil sourced from waters off the Chilean coast. As the world’s least-industrialized coastline, these cold, fresh waters provide the cleanest, most sustainable source of fish in the world. Orthomega provides 820 mg of EPA and DHA per soft gel as concentrated triglycerides, the bio-identical form best absorbed in the body. Vitamin E (as mixed tocopherols) is added to stabilize the oil and ensure maximum purity and freshness. This exceptional fish oil is purified, vacuum distilled and independently tested to ensure heavy metals, pesticides and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are reduced to undetectable levels.

Resvoxitrol†

Resvoxitrol is a unique combination of phytonutrients designed to enhance antioxidant potential by stimulating the nuclear factor- erythyroid-2-related factor (Nrf2), the binding protein responsible for the antioxidant response in the body. This exclusive blend of turmeric, pterostilbene, resveratrol, and broccoli seed extract has a wide array of biological activity including direct free radical scavenging potential as well as inducing intracellular antioxidant production. These potent phytochemicals are the basis of many “superfoods” and have extensive, peer-reviewed research supporting their dramatic effect on cell health and longevity.
