We all have many compelling reasons to take the highest-quality basic
daily supplement we can find. We need daily insurance against the vitamin
and mineral shortfalls that often occur in our regular diets. In addition,
we can all benefit by fortifying ourselves with extra nutrients and herbs
we can't get from our diet alone.
In Unicity's ongoing quest to Make Life Better, we have formulated a new
daily supplement to reflect the latest scientific developments. Rx for
Life™ Core Health™ combines the best from two former products, the Enrich
Core Pack™ and Rx for Life™ Total Life Care Nutrition System. Available
in formulations tailored for men and women, Rx for Life™ Core Health™
provides the best possible daily combination of the vitamins, minerals,
and herbs most essential to general health. These ingredients not only
help maintain normal, healthy body function but can also improve health
Convenient daily unit dose packets of Rx for Life™ Core Health™ deliver
more than 35 essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytonutrients,
Modern civilization increasingly relies on processed foods, fast foods,
low-calorie diets, artificial additives, and snack foods high in calories
but lacking in nutrients. The body suffers when it does not absorb the
nutrients needed to perform specific biological functions. If these nutrients
are not present in the body in optimum amounts, then tissues, glands,
and organs work less efficiently. Consequences may include fatigue, reduced
immune function, and reduced mental and physical performance.
Government food guidelines suggest daily consumption of a balanced diet
low in fat and rich in fruits, vegetables, and fiber. Recommended Daily
Allowances (RDAs) reflect the levels of nutrient intake that will meet
the needs of most healthy people. However, despite good intentions most
individuals fall short of these recommended nutrient levels. Additionally,
current research suggests that higher intake levels of certain nutrients
may have beneficial effects. For example, the current adult RDA for vitamin
E is 30 IU per day. Yet several clinical and epidemiological studies show
that levels up to 100-800 IU per day can significantly benefit cardiovascular
health. Also, intakes of selenium two to three times higher than the RDA
may benefit prostate, colon, thyroid, and lung functions.*
Since it is difficult if not impossible to obtain higher levels of crucial
nutrients from food alone, supplements can be added to a healthy, balanced
diet to provide the nutrient levels needed to maintain optimal health.*
