matrixWHY SHOULD YOU BUY THESE SUPPLEMENTS OVER CHEAPER ALTERNATIVES?

In extensive clinical trials against chemical isolate supplements SUPERFOOD MATRIX DSsupplements were proven to be:
1.   100% metabolised
2.   Retained in the body longer
3.   Delivered to where they can do the most good.

Inferior, isolated, heat-pressed components in most other brands are simply passed straight through the digestive system and end up being expensive pee.

Human Studies Performed

PUBLISHED STUDIES

Vitamin C

Comparative bioavailability to humans of ascorbic acid alone or in a citrus extract.

J.A. Vinson and P. Bose.

American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 48, 3. 601-604. 1988.

Skips Superfood Matrix Delivery System Vitamin C was found to be 35% more absorbed than the isolate ascorbic acid.  Skips Superfood Matrix Delivery System Vitamin C was also found to be better retained within the body than ascorbic acid, as demonstrated by lower excretion in the urine.

In vitro and in vivo reduction of erythrocyte sorbitol by ascorbic acid.

J.A. Vinson, M.E. Staretz, P. Bose, H.M. Kassm, and B.S. Basalyga.

Diabetes 38, 8. 1036-1041.  1989.

Skips Superfood Matrix Delivery System Vitamin C
 was found to be effective in reducing sorbitol levels in erythrocytes, with a lower level of variation between subjects than in the isolated ascorbic acid group.

Lowering erythrocyte sorbitol levels is a useful measure in reducing diabetic side effects.

In vitro and in vivo lipoprotein antioxidant effect of a citrus extract and ascorbic acid on normal and hypercholesterolemic human subjects.

J.A. Vinson and J. Jang

Journal of Medicinal Food, 4, 3.  187-192.  2001

Skips Superfood Matrix Delivery System Vitamin C significantly lowered triglycerides levels, where as neither isolated vitamin C nor vitamin E did.  The synergism between vitamin C and its associated food components in citrus is highlighted.

Increased triglyceride levels are implicated with increased risk of heart disease.

Calcium

Comparison of different forms of calcium on blood pressure of normotensive young males.

J.A. Vinson, T. Mazur and P. Bose.

Nutrition Reports International, 36, 3.  497-505.  1987.

Skips Superfood Matrix Delivery System Calcium brought about an 8.2% decrease in diastolic blood pressure after 7 weeks’ supplementation, whereas calcium gluconate brought about no significant change.  Additionally, all subjects in the calcium gluconate group complained of gastrointestinal distress, which did not happen in the Skips Superfood Matrix Delivery System Calcium group.

Chromium

The effect of a high chromium yeast on the blood glucose control and blood lipids of normal and diabetic human subjects.

J.A. Vinson and P. Bose.

Nutritional Reports International, 30, 4. 1984.

After 6 months of supplementation with Skips Superfood Matrix Delivery System Chromium, all hyperglycaemic subjects had improved blood glucose control.  The average improvement was 57%.

Comparative effect of various forms of chromium on serum glucose: An assay for biologically active chromium.

J.A. Vinson and K.H. Hsaio.

Nutritional Reports International, 32, 1.  1985.

Skips Superfood Matrix Delivery System Chromium
 reduced serum glucose by 16.8%, compared to only 6% with chromium chloride and 5.7% with brewer’s yeast.  Serum glucose reduction is considered a useful measure for the biological activity of chromium.

Probiotics

The Gastrointestinal System- An Essential Target Organ of the Athlete’s Health and physical Performance.

Berg. A., Müller, H., et al.
Exercise Immunology Review, 1999; 5: 78-95

Intake of a Probiotic food supplement changes fecal mircoflora and exercise-induced NK-cell decrease in endurance athletes.

Müller, M., Rathmann, S., et al.

Dept. Rahabilitation, Prevention and Sports Medicine, Freiburg, Germany.

Probiotics positively influenced stress induced immune response with regard to athletes

Probiotics in primary prevention of atopic disease: a randomized placebo-controlled trial.

Kalliomäki, M., Salminen, S., et al.
Lancet, 2001; 357: 1076-1079

Gut microflora might be a hitherto unexplored source of natural immunomodulators and Probiotics, for prevention of atopic disease.

Zinc

Comparative human bioavailability of zinc.

J.A. Vinson

Nutrient Availability, Chemical and Biological Aspects.  Royal Society of Chemistry. 1989

Skips Superfood Matrix Delivery System Zinc was found to be 75% more absorbed than zinc sulphate and 58% more absorbed than zinc gluconate.  In addition the Skips Superfood Matrix Delivery System Zinc was absorbed over a longer time period – a natural ‘time release’.

Miscellaneous
