clipboardOur Ingredients Are Backed By Numerous Clinical Studies. Here Are Just A Few:

clinical studies


 

Potassium

  • *Potassium is essential to the human body. You need this mineral for everything from processing ingested food sources, to controlling the electrical activity of the heart. This means that without adequate potassium, you may suffer from malnutrition, high blood pressure, and heart problems including palpitations and arrhythmia.
  • **Barium in high amounts, for which airborne particles have tested positive, is known to bind to potassium, rendering it useless. This leads to a dangerous loss of this essential mineral.
  • EnvioShield contains the perfect amount and form of potassium, which will be readily absorbed by your body to replenish any loss due to elevated barium levels in our environment.

Selenium (Organically bound)

  • *Selenium has been shown to be effective in shielding the body from dangerous lead contamination and poisoning in two distinct ways: By having a protective effective when taken prior to lead exposure, as well as forming highly bonded selenium-lead complexes, allowing for lead to be eliminated from the body rather than contaminating it.
  • Lead is a highly toxic, poisonous to humans substance which has also been found in our environment. It’s currently present in every part of our environment, from soil, air, water, and food sources… to chemically-based substances such as paints, solvents, even the building materials surrounding us.
  • **Blood lead levels are consistently negatively correlated with our adaptive behavior, motor performance, brain function, and even social behavior such as social withdrawal, depression, and atypical body movements, aggressions and destruction.
  • ***Additionally, selenium may help decrease cancer incidence by 37%, even decreasing cancer deaths by 50% in patients suffering from lung, colon, and prostate cancer.
  • EnvioShield contains the optimal dose of selenium for each of these effects to take place.

Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid)

  • *It is a world class antioxidant, having been proven to protect against heart disease, high blood pressure, common cold, arthritis, poor eyesight, asthma, even cancer! It’s well known to boost the immune system, which is always a good thing in our highly toxic environment.
  • **Sufficient Vitamin C intake has been proven to protect cells from arsenic toxicity. Arsenic being present in our food supply and our environment, this protection is integral to your well being!
  • ***Arsenic affects just about all organ systems. Being exposed to higher levels of it has been shown to cause many cancers, including skin, lung, kidney, bladder, and other cancers. Could an increase in this harmful substance by way of our modern environment be the explanation for the higher incidences of cancer in our society?

Vitamin E (as d-alphatocopherol)

  • *It’s an antioxidant similar to Vitamin C, but it works in difference pathways to prevent the development of cardiovascular diseases and cancer.
  • **The right dosage of Vitamin E, as included in our supplement, has been shown to protect the brain from long-term oxidation as caused by Mercury. Mercury has been shown to be contained in everything from our air,soil and water.
  • ***All forms of mercury are highly toxic to the human body. It can cause acute pneumonia, damage the central nervous system through the pathway of blood absorption, as well as cause serious kidney damage as the body tries to rid itself of this chemical. From our research as quoted above, we find that Vitamin E may help support the body through this cleansing process.
  • Additionally, Vitamin E is a powerful anti-inflammatory in the body.

Malic Acid

  • One of several alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) found in apples, grapes, cranberries, and other fruits and vegetables, a naturally-occurring antioxidant and essential component for the synthesis of ATP.
  • *Magnesium Malate (aka Malic Acid) has been proven to be a very effective in metal detoxification, particularly when it comes to aluminum, which has been found in our soil and as a result is now in huge amounts in our soil, water, and air.
  • Aluminum has been proven in numerous studies to have very negative health effects on the body, including igniting such as Fibromyalgia, even neurotoxic effects as **Alzheimer’s Disease, ***detrimental effects on the lungs, fertility, and is even known as a ****carcinogen in certain medical circles.
  • Our EnvioShield formula boasts the most absorbent and effective form of malate available; you can be sure of its effectiveness!

Coenzyme Q10

  • Coenzyme Q1,0 also known as ubiquinone, is an essential component of the mitochondria  the energy producing unit of the cells of our body. Its role in the energy production within our cells is similar to the role of a spark plug in a car engine. Just as the engine cannot function without that initial spark, our cells simply cannot function without CoQ10.
  • People with very low levels of CoQ10 include those with cardiovascular disease, Parkinsons disease, muscular dystrophy, breast and other cancers, diabetes, male infertility, AIDS, asthma, thyroid disorders, depression, lack of energy, and periodontal disease.
  • *CoQ10 is a safe and effective adjunctive treatment for a broad range of cardiovascular diseases, producing gratifying clinical responses while easing the medical and financial burden of multidrug therapy.
