The patented AM/PM Fitness Tabs® nourish your body around the clock with essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants you need to support overall health, energy, immunity, longevity, and brain function. There are many vitamins on the market, but none offer all the benefits of MDR Fitness Tabs:
1. Patented formula developed by Medical Doctors Research based on the latest scientific findings.
The patented Fitness Tabs formula was developed by MDR to support good health and longevity combining the expertise of physicians and other experts in the fields of medicine, nutrition, anti-aging science, dermatology, dietetics, weight loss, stress management, biochemistry, food science and public health. Patent # 5,976,568 & 5,948,443.
2. Precisely combined nutrients for the best results.
MDR takes nutrient interactions into account for greater utilization of the various nutrients. For example, some vitamins and minerals work better when taken together, such as Vitamin D + Calcium, Vitamin C + Iron, Vitamins A + E, Vitamin C + E, and Vitamin E + Selenium.
3. Different formulas for men and women.
Because men and women have different nutritional needs, you’ll find more Iron, Vitamin B-6, Calcium, and Folic Acid in the MDR Fitness Tabs formula for Women, plus nutrients that support healthy skin, and nails. The Men’s formula contains more Vitamin C and Lycopene to help support prostate health.
4. Formulated to replace nutrients that lifestyle factors deplete.
Your lifestyle can determine your body’s requirements for vitamins. For example, oral contraceptives can increase a woman’s need for Vitamins B-12, B-6 and Folic Acid. Smoking or just being exposed to second-hand smoke increases your body’s need for Vitamin C. Exercise increases the need for Chromium. Too much fructose (fruit sugar) in your diet can aggravate copper deficiencies . Use of alcohol, coffee, certain medications and daily stress can also influence nutrient requirements. If you are recuperating from surgery, your body’s need for various nutrients are increased. The MDR formula insures you get higher levels of important nutrients to support good health than you may get from the typical American diet.
5. Ideal for aspirin users.
The patented MDR Fitness Tabs formula was carefully designed to avoid excess nutrients that contribute to blood clotting or thinning that might interfere with a daily Aspirin or Coumadin, another great advantage of taking Fitness Tabs.
6. AM and PM formula doubles your chances for absorption.
The water-soluble vitamins (B complex and C) are not well stored by the body. There is a tissue saturation point after which little absorption occurs and excess quantities are excreted in the urine. As the body's vitamin levels decrease during the day, they must be replenished from the diet or be obtained from supplements to maintain optimal levels. First to recognize that water soluble vitamins are lost through the day, MDR's patented AM/PM formula replenishes nutrients your lifestyle depletes. Specific nutrients are absorbed in specific parts of the intestine. For example, Vitamins B-6, B-12 and D are absorbed in the small intestine. Once a vitamin passes its absorption point, absorption decreases. MDR's AM/PM dosage allows nutrients to pass their specific absorption points twice during the day to double your chances for absorption.
7. Helps fight dietary deficiencies.
The MDR formula was designed to help prevent nutritional deficiencies seen in large segments of the population. For example, Vitamins A, C, B-6, B-2 and the minerals Iron and Zinc are considered problem nutrients, because many Americans don't get the recommended amounts from their diet.
8. A precise, scientific formula with the right amount of the right nutrients for optimal health.
Many multiple vitamins are missing important nutrients or provide too little to have benefit. Worse yet, some brands use unproven ingredients. The MDR philosophy is to avoid potentially harmful ingredients, so we won’t use herbs until their safety and efficacy is known. Just because more items are listed on a label, does not mean a formula is more complete. MDR uses nutrients in dosages recognized as safe and effective for daily intake in accordance with the National Research Council's 10th edition of Recommended Dietary Allowances–with an additional reserve to help compensate for lifestyle factors.
9. MDR supplies nutrients that help convert food into energy.
Immediately following meals is the best time to take MDR Fitness Tabs because the vitamins and minerals in the formula work with proteins, fats and carbohydrates in foods to help convert food into energy. With the AM/PM formula you feel your best all day long!
10. MDR contains the finest nutrients, like ChromeMate® in recommended levels.
Few Americans get sufficient levels of Chromium, vital to a healthy cardiovascular system and the ability to utilize glucose properly. MDR supplies the finest sources of nutrients, like ChromeMate®–a patented complex of Chromium bound to Niacin. A study at the University of California found ChromeMate® is absorbed and retained up to 311% better than Chromium Picolinate and 672% better than Chromium Chloride. Toxicity studies also show that ChromeMate® is 4 times safer than the inexpensive and poorly absorbed Chromium Chloride found in many store bought multi-vitamins.
11. MDR uses only the most effective nutrient sources, like natural Vitamin E.
Many vitamin companies don't use nutritionally preferred sources because they are expensive. For example, synthetic Vitamin E shown on labels as "dl-Alpha Tocopheryl," is 36% less active than the natural form used by MDR ("d-Alpha Tocopheryl"). With more research showing the importance of nutrients like Vitamin E for immune function, it's important to know you are getting the best source of every nutrient.
12. MDR Fitness Tabs supplies the highest quality natural carotenoids vital to good health.
Results of the Nurses Health Study (which lasted over 8 years and was conducted on 87,245 women) found those with diets higher in beta carotene had better cardiovascular health. Because MDR uses natural beta carotene, the complex also provides alpha carotene important to your health. In addition the MDR formula uses the highest quality Lyc-O-Mato® Lycopene from tomatoes specially grown in Israel. This carotenoid complex has been found to support bone health, prostate health, and cardiovascular health. In addition to Lycopene, Lyc-O-Mato® contains other bioactive healthy nutrients such as Tocopherols, Phytosterols, Beta Carotene and Zeta Carotene - as they occur naturally in the tomato.
MDR Fitness Tabs also supply FloraGlo® Lutein and Zeaxanthin, the most important natural carotenoids found in spinach, kale and other dark green leafy vegetables and in several parts of your eyes. These nutrients help support eye health.
13. No megadoses.
Generally, MDR provides higher levels of nutrients than the RDA to compensate for lifestyle factors that can cause vitamin losses. Research has also found higher dosages of certain nutrients seem to exert a protective effect on maintaining health. However, MDR does not provide megadoses that may create an imbalance or potential toxicity in your body. For example, too much Zinc can weaken your immune response and promote undesirable cholesterol levels. Taking too much Iron may cause constipation and potentially increase oxidative damage. MDR provides safe and effective dosages based on the latest nutrition research. Best of all, the Fitness Tabs® formula is the "core" of the MDR health regimen. Each MDR add on "target" health formula is designed to be taken with the MDR Fitness Tabs to give the right dosage of nutrients. This is a great advantage over other vitamin brands that often repeat nutrients in multiple formulas creating potential megadoses.
14. More Calcium and Vitamin D3 for healthy bones, teeth and nerves than in many multivitamin formulas.
Surprisingly, many popular multi-vitamins claim to be high potency, yet they provide less than 50 mg. of calcium. A definite link exists between osteoporosis and inadequate daily calcium or Vitamin D intake. MDR Fitness Tabs provide 545 mg. of Calcium for women and 500 mg. for men. Together with 1-2 servings of dairy products, this meets the daily Calcium requirement. For those who have no dairy intake, MDR offers Stress Defense® Performance Tabs with an additional 450 mg. of Calcium or MDR Nite-Cal® & Day-Cal™ for added Calcium. The MDR Fitness Tabs formula also supplies the recommended level of 800 I.U of Vitamin D3 to support overall health. New research shows Vitamin D is vital to gastric health, colon health, strong bones, immune defenses, brain function and for maintaining muscle tone with aging.
15. MDR provides nutrients shown to support immunity.
New studies show the immune system gradually declines with aging. In a study of 96 healthy older individuals, those who received supplementation showed improved immunity and were healthier than those who took placebos. Some of the key beneficial nutrients that support natural immunity are found in the MDR formula: Vitamins A, B-6, B-12, C, D, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Folic Acid, Iron, Zinc, and Copper plus Beta Carotene and natural Vitamin E.
16. The American Medical Association recommends that adults should take multivitamins.
The Journal of the American Medical Association reported that most people do not consume an optimal amount of vitamins from diet alone, and therefore it appears prudent for all adults to take vitamin supplements. MDR Fitness Tabs have been recommended by many doctors and were listed in the Physicians' Desk Reference® for over 15 years.
17. Antioxidants to help fight free radicals.
Continual free radical damage over the years contributes to aging changes and many degenerative conditions. New research suggests that antioxidants can boost our defenses against free radicals. Research has found that higher intakes of Lycopene, Lutein, Beta Carotene, and Vitamins E, C, and Selenium can help shield our bodies against some of the damaging effects of free radicals. In a UCLA study of 11,000 adults, the exact dosage of Vitamin C in MDR Fitness Tabs is the amount scientists found helped people live longer. And in another study, the same amount supported eye health. MDR is right on target with an AM/PM antioxidant formula to support health and longevity .
18. Made to pharmaceutical quality standards.
The MDR Fitness Tabs formula is monitored through all stages of production from raw material handling to manufacturing under strict pharmaceutical standards to insure the highest quality formula for the best results.
19. MDR’s natural tablet coating protects its ingredients.
Unlike many vitamin companies, which use synthetic tablet coatings made with dyes and petroleum byproducts (isopropyl alcohol, methylene chloride for example), MDR uses plant fiber, vitamins, and water to create the natural coatings that protect the ingredients from exposure to light and oxygen.
20. The MDR formula must pass tests for potency and disintegration time.
For a nutritional product “to work it must be digested.” One study found that half of all calcium supplements tested could not be easily digested. Each batch of MDR must pass a proper disintegration test plus a series of quality control tests–one more way that MDR guarantees the Fitness Tabs are supplying important vitamins and minerals you need for good health, natural vitality and immunity.
21. Extra Gentle.
Fitness Tabs are pH balanced, gentle on the stomach and FREE of Gluten, sugars like lactose, artificial color, yeast, sodium, animal glandulars, herbs, caffeine, wheat, corn, soy, and dairy ingredients.
22. MDR offers a Stress Defense formula for an added nutritional boost for those under stress.
Stress can weaken your immune system. Many "stress" formulas are sold today, yet are missing nutrients involved in the body’s ability to handle stress. MDR provides B-Complex Vitamins, Vitamin A, Calcium, Magnesium, Chromium, Iron, and Zinc to supporting your body’s defenses against the effects of stress. MDR's AM Fitness Tab supplies higher dosages of nutrients when activity demands are greater, and the PM Fitness Tab replenishes nutrients as tissue levels are reduced during the day.
During times when you are under more than average stress, your body’s requirements for certain nutrients may be increased. MDR’s Body Stress Defense® Performance Tabs provide a higher level of vitamins and minerals to help meet the body’s increased nutritional requirements while mediating stress reactions, and to maintain peak levels of good health and natural energy. If you have a stress-filled lifestyle, take one or two MDR Stress Defense Performance Tabs each day with the Fitness Tabs for best results. Avoid taking this energy support formula before bedtime.
