      I’m a firm believer in supplements. Below is a description of a total health system that has helped me fill in all of my nutritional gaps and has actually helped me curb my craving for sweets! Trust me - I have a severe sweet tooth!

      Coupling innovative science and research with a natural-based approach to proactive wellness, Dr. Michael Seidman
      has made a revolutionary breakthrough in supplementation. His Vi-PAK® gives our bodies everything our modern diets
      simply cannot.

      In today's "insta-society" of fast food and hectic lifestyles, our bodies are paying the price. From processed
      foods to lack of sleep and high stress, we are fast-forwarding the already short amount of time we have on this planet.

      Dr. Seidman developed the Vi-PAK® with the vision of helping people lead healthier and more fulfilled lives.
      The Vi-PAK® uses four unique supplements to provide our
      bodies with the nutrients needed to operate at peak levels. The four components of the Vi-Pak are:

      1. Multi Mineral & Vitamin Formula. A chelated blend of everything you need; nothing you don't. This supplement combines vitamins, minerals and other ingredients in a unique formulation. The amounts of each ingredient have been carefully measured to provided the reported potential benefit. This supplement has been designed in concert with the Supercharged Antioxidant to provide the essential vitamins and minerals to promote better health at a cellular level.

      2. Supercharged Antioxidant. Unprecedented support against devastating free radical attacks. The Supercharged Antioxidant is a potent blend of vitamins, antioxidants and minerals specifically designed to battle free radicals throughout your system. Free radicals are damaging agents found in and created by our own bodies. Produced in the
      mitochondria of each cell, we each create seven trillion of these free radicals every second. While our bodies are also able to create enzymes to combat the damaging attacks these free radicals make on our cells, these protective enzymes invariably decline as we age. The Supercharged Antioxidant found in the Vi-PAK® is a blend of vitamins A, C and E, help your body combat the effects of free radicals, as well as even more potent antioxidants such as N-acetyl cysteine, Grape Seed, Green Tea and Pine Bark extracts. The herbs Ginseng and Ginkgo Biloba are excellent for maintaining general health and have the potential to enhance the sense of well-being and overall memory capacity. N-acetyl Cysteine is a potent antioxidant and protects cells from the toxic effects of oxygen. Grape Seed Extract is an outstanding antioxidant and has been shown to be 20 times more powerful than vitamin C and 50 times as powerful as vitamin E.

      3. Patented Anti-Aging & Energy Complex. A patented fountain of youth for the cellular powerhouse! The Anti-Aging & Energy Formula has been proven in clinical tests to be revolutionary in its ability to enhance mitochondrial function and improve the efficiency of energy production in the body. This cutting-edge supplement was awarded a Government Patent on its merits and on the results of these tests. There is extensive scientific support that mitochondrial function declines with age, starting as early as our 20's. A leading theory on aging, the mitochondrial clock theory, is based upon a gradual decline in itochondrial function because of DNA damage from free radicals. This patented product combines two mitochondrial metabolites and two mitochondrial respiratory chain precursors that enhance mitochondrial function. In animal and human studies, these metabolites increase mitochondrial functions, enhance energy production and counteract some of the biochemical reactions associated with aging.
      Special Features: Alpha lipoic acid, a key ingredient of this formula, serves to enhance mitochondrial function, support better hearing, and has been used as a therapeutic agent in liver and brain disorders. Acetyl L-carnitine is a biological compound also found in the formula which stimulates antioxidant defenses. Coenzyme Q10 and Glutathione are the other key ingredients that make this formula unique, helping to effectively battle free radicals on a cellular level. The ability to slow the process of aging on a cellular level is what sets this product apart from the rest and is the reason it has produced so many remarkable success stories.

      4. Omega Vitals Formulation. Essential oils for your body's finely tuned engine! Omega Vitals, or Essential Fatty Acids (EFA), are so-named because they are imperative for optimal health, cognitive function and cardiovascular support.
      The EFA's are identified as omega-3 EFA (or alphalinolenic
      acid) and omega-6 EFA (linoleic acid). A deficiency in either progressively results in poor health. Like other essential nutrients, the human body cannot function without EFA's in the diet. These EFA's function as building blocks for the membranes of every cell in the body. They also produce "prostaglandin families," which are hormone-like substances necessary for energy metabolism and cardiovascular and immune health. Brain and nerve tissue
      consist of over 50% EFA's!

      Neatly divided into daily packets, you can not only protect your health with the traditional 1-month supply, but help
      others feel the benefits with a 3-day sample pack.
      Whether you're the college quarterback or "Grandma" to the world's 10 cutest kids, the Vi-PAK® is a system formulated to provide comprehensive nutrition. Don't let your
      body's nutritional needs go unmet for another day!

      Benefits of the Vi-PAK®:
      Designed to help:
      Your body's natural energy production, endurance
      and performance
      Support overall immune system function
      Stress and tension
      Support healthy range of motion
      Support your body's recovery process

        • I believe there is plenty of room for us to have our own opinions about our respective products. That’s what I love about this site!!

          The ORAC value for the Anti-Oxidants is 528, 204 for the Multi Mineral/Vitamin and 103 for the patented Anti Aging/Energy component.

          With 25 years of federal funding from the National Institute of Health, I feel confident that I’m providing the best nutrition for my body.

        • Our AO has an ORAC of over 17,000. The average ORAC value of the 90+ antioxidants independently tested was somewhere near 6,000.

        • Wow-I’d love to see the lab report on that!

        • I guess I only looked at one of the three different columns for the three different types of ORAC. The Brunswick Lab report I have here shows the ORAC value for the Omega Vitals at 37,832. Hope this helps!

        • That would be for the fat soluble protection for the nucleus of the cell if it is for the Omegas. It doesn’t protect the water soluble part of the exterior of the cell. I’d be glad to find that report and email it to you. It only identifies generic descriptions of the other products (to prevent mudslinging by over zealous associates) but if you look closely at the descriptions it easy to guess on some of them.

        • I did fail to mention the importance of FDA inspected labs. This means that what you say is in your product must actually be in your product. The FDA can come in at any time and audit your ingredients. It costs a bit more for production but it’s worth it.

          Another thing to look for is GMP (which the Vi-Pak has) for good quality control and safety testing. I wouldn’t put anything in my body unless it had both of these standards - a pharmaceutical grade supplement.

          Having patents ain’t too shabby either. A patent simply means that the product does what it says it does. The anti-aging component of the Vi-Pak goes into the mitochondria of the cell and reverses and repairs DNA damage - essentially slowing down the aging process. Yeah!
