Key to a healthy diet = variety and moderation Balanced intake of carbohydrates, protein, and fat Optimal intake of essential vitamins & minerals Broad range of antioxidants to support antioxidant defense system including antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables Essential fatty acids - fish, flaxseed, fish oil supplements Water

6 JAMA, 19 June 2002 “Most people do not consume an optimal amount of all vitamins by diet alone. Pending strong evidence of effectiveness from randomized trials, it appears prudent for all adults to take vitamin supplements.” Robert H. Fletcher, MD, MSc; Kathleen M. Fairfield, MD, DrPH, Harvard University. Journal of the American Medical Association 2002; 287:

7 Optimum Supplementation
Ensures RDA levels + Considers typical dietary intakes Optimum nutrient levels for long-term health Non-essential, beneficial nutrients

8 Why Use Supplements? To prevent nutrient deficiencies and provide optimal levels of nutrients Vitamin C (Scurvy) 4-5 oranges weekly to prevent tooth loss from scurvy dozen oranges a day for effective antioxidant activity Vitamin E IU daily for antioxidant high sources only available in fatty food - obesity B-vitamins Folic acid and neural tube defects

9 Why Use Supplements? To provide consistent intake of all essential nutrients and ultimately improve general well-being, e.g., physical and mental performance Additional reasons you may need to supplement your diet: food processing methods smoking tobacco food allergies stress prescription & over-the-counter medicines illness

14 Antioxidant Defense System
A comprehensive profile of antioxidants must work together in synergy to afford effective protection from free radical damage Vitamin E Vitamin C Mineral cofactors (selenium, zinc, copper, manganese) Alpha-Lipoic Acid Carotenoids (beta-carotene, lutein, and lycopene) Flavonoids (green tea catechins, bioflavonoids, grape seed extract, quercetin)

15 Two Scientific Studies Proving LifePak’s Antioxidant Effects
Protection of LDL against free radicals Vitamin E b-Carotene Smidt CR, Seidehamel RJ, Devaraj S, Jialal I. The Effects of a Nutritionally Complete Dietary Supplement (LifePak®) on Antioxidant Status and LDL-Oxidation in Healthy Non-Smokers. FASEB 1999;13(4):A546.

16 Essential Fatty Acids Balance intake of essential fatty acids (more omega-3, less omega-6). EFAs have numerous health benefits, including helping restore damaged skin, and maintaining moist and smooth skin. Double-blind study in The Lancet found omega-3s may address symptoms associated with certain problem skin conditions. Omega-3s found in fish, flaxseed, and certain food supplements. Bittiner SB, et al. Lancet. Feb1988;1(8582): Kojima T, et al. Dermatologica. 1991;182(4):
