This copper- and iron-free formula of Added Protection III is recommended especially for those people for whom supplemental iron is generally not indicated, and who may get excess copper from corrosion of copper water pipes by soft water.
Amni® Added Protection III®, provided by Douglas
Laboratories®, is a comprehensive, highly concentrated
vitamin-mineral-trace element supplement providing a
balanced daily supply of over 30 nutrients, plus methionine
and cysteine — two amino acids most often limited in
Western diets today. Added Protection III is more than just
another multivitamin supplement. It is a potent antioxidant
formula with natural beta-carotene (from D. salina) and
natural vitamin E; a high-potency B-complex supplement; a
significant source of bioavailable calcium and magnesium;
and a full-spectrum trace element supplement. Added
Protection III uses only the purest, most hypoallergenic
ingredients and contains no yeast; corn; wheat; sugar or other
sweeteners; artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. Every
batch is expiration dated to guarantee a minimum of 100% of
label claim for all ingredients up to the date printed on the
Studies show that a high percentage of adults and children in
North America eat less than the minimum daily allowance of
10 or more essential nutrients. Adequate amounts and
proper balance of these nutrients are needed not only for
maintaining good health, but also for the dietary management
and prevention of chronic diseases. Cysteine and methionine
help stimulate the synthesis of glutathione, an important
antioxidant which protects against free radicals, such as those which may be produced by exposure to heavy metals
and environmental pollutants.
Added Protection III has been carefully developed to contain
the right proportions of vitamins, minerals, and trace
elements without danger of toxic build-up and without side
effects. Each ingredient is selected in consideration of its
absorbability, competitive relationship with other nutrients,
allergenic potential, and long-term safety. Certain
potentially toxic nutrients are purposely kept low (vitamin D)
or omitted (phosphorus); others, such as beta-carotene,
vitamin C, vitamin E and B-complex vitamins are included
in high-potency amounts because of the vital roles they play
in antioxidant protection, energy production and maintenance
of healthy blood cells, nervous system, hormonal balance,
and more. Minerals and trace elements are provided in their
safest and most bioavailable forms, such as Albion® amino
acid chelates and other scientifically validated and clinically
superior forms. The unique inert cellulose tablet coating
consistently disintegrates rapidly for better nutrient absorption.
Beta-carotene is added to the coating to help preserve nutrient
activity and naturally colors each tablet pink.
Added Protection III is ideal for individuals with vitamin,
mineral and trace element deficiencies due to sub-optimal dietary
intake, age, life style, and special conditions of increased need
including pregnancy, illness and medication. For many
individuals, Added Protection III is the only daily nutritional
supplement and antioxidant formula they need to take.
