Prime Essentials 60 Tab - Nutritional Cellular Protection

This is a practitioner-only product. Please arrange a telephone consultation with our health care practitioners to ensure this product is suitable for you.

Metagenics Prime Essentials is scientifically formulated to protect cellular DNA against free radical damage: Clinical studies have shown ingredients in Prime Essentials may reduce DNA breaks and support healthy cell function.

A dose equivalent to 3 g of Green Tea leaves per day has been shown, in a placebo-controlled cross-over supplementation study, to protect cellular DNA against free radical damage. 

Green Tea may also protect the genome through its positive associations with telomere length. 

Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) contributes to the down regulation of NFκ-B and AP-1 reducing chronic inflammation and supporting normal cell cycles. 

Cellular oxidative damage may also be reduced as superoxide, hydroxyl, peroxyl and peroxynitrite radicals are scavenged by the Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins (OPC’s) in Grapeseed.

Support for cognition and neurological function: A randomised, placebo-controlled trial on 44 to 78 year olds showed that boron has significant effects on mental performance, dexterity, hand-eye coordination, attention, perception and short-term and long-term memory. Chromium and manganese are also required for normal neurological function.
