Dr. Cannell’s Advanced D Women’s Formula provides the key
Vitamin D benefits for women delivered by the original Dr. Cannell’s Advanced D,
plus skin support with Lutein. Known as an important "carotene" for healthy
eyes, Lutein also works as an antioxidant to help keep skin healthy by
protecting dermal tissue against free radicals.* Each serving of Dr. Cannell’s
Advanced D Women’s Formula supplies 10 mg of FloraGLO® Lutein. In a double-blind
trial, 40 healthy women experienced positive effects on skin elasticity and
hydration after taking FloraGLO® Lutein for just 12 weeks.
Vitamin D and Lutein – a "Beautiful" Combination
The results of the FloraGlo Lutein clinical trial (using the
same dosage in Dr. Cannell's Advanced Vitamin D Women's Formula) show
that after 12 weeks of treatment, a supplement of FloraGLO Lutein has the
following beneficial effects on the skin:
- Improved skin hydration - Skin hydration
improved by 60% after 12 weeks among those who took only oral supplementation
while those who used only the topical treatment had an increase of 62% after 12
- Improved skin elasticity - After 12 weeks of the
topical treatment or by combined oral supplement and topical application,
the study shows an increase of skin elasticity of 68% in comparison with the
initial value. With oral supplementation alone, the increase is 56%.
- Improved skin photo-protection - Skin
photo-protective activity improves 2.5 times when FloraGLO Lutein is used in
Biotin is an important nutrient for healthy hair, so Dr.
Cannell’s Advanced D Women’s Formula adds 2,000 mcg of Biotin per serving.
The Vitamin D3 Revolution
Vitamin D's influence on key biological functions vital to one's health and
well-being mandates that Vitamin D3 supplementation can no longer be ignored by
individuals striving to achieve and maintain a greater state of health. The
research on this vitamin keeps coming: cardiovascular health, immune support,
bone and joint health, and much more.* This advancement in scientific knowledge
about D3 is especially notable when we consider that we are living in a time of
widespread Vitamin D insufficiency. Formulated by John Cannell, MD†, Purity’s
Vitamin D complex is a blend of targeted nutrients to complement
many of Vitamin D3’s health benefits.
The Dr. Cannell Difference
Advanced D™ provides a powerful dose of cholecalciferol (Vitamin D3) backed
by nutrients that work in tandem with this crucial vitamin to support the health
of numerous systems within the body. At the foundation of its design as an
answer to widespread Vitamin D deficiency are found a set of other nutrients - key cofactors -
added to complement the physiological actions of D3. Dr Cannell’s Advanced D™
orchestrates combined actions to make sure that optimal influence is present
towards bone, muscle, and metabolic function.*
The Advanced D Difference - Key CoFactors
Vitamin D is a team player inside the human body, relying on proper levels of
other nutrients - key cofactors - to fulfill its potential in supporting several areas of health.
Magnesium is needed by enzymes that metabolize Vitamin D. Magnesium is another
nutrient that may run low in the diet. Low dietary Magnesium can
contribute to lower levels of circulating Vitamin D.
Dr Cannell’s Advanced D™ presents a highly bioavailable form
of the mineral magnesium as Magnesium Citrate. Zinc plays a role in the Vitamin
D receptor, and Boron supports Vitamin D metabolism.* Remarkably, research in
humans has found action between Vitamins D and K2, showing a
combined effort to enhance bone health and support cardiovascular wellness.
Working with Vitamin D, Vitamin K2 helps Calcium find its proper place in the
Going Beyond D3
In addition to the powerful dosage of Vitamin D3, Dr. Cannell’s Advanced D
Formula™ delivers a combination of several cutting edge nutritional ingredients
shown to help promote proper Vitamin D metabolism and
utilization in the body. Science has shown that supplementation with D3 or
Vitamin K2 can promote bone mineral quality. Working in combination with Vitamin D, Vitamin K2 helps keep calcium in the right places, like the bones.*
As is the case with Vitamin D, knowledgeable healthcare providers are
starting to learn that contemporary dietary patterns leave much of the
population with insufficient magnesium consumption. Low dietary magnesium may
also contribute to a lower level of circulating Vitamin D—yet another barrier to
conserving an ideal, strong skeletal structure. Magnesium is involved in over
300 enzymatic processes in human cells, and Dr. Cannell’s Advanced D Formula™
features Magnesium Citrate because it is a form of the mineral shown to be
advantageous in terms of absorption. Magnesium is well known for its
contributions to bone health, neuromuscular function, cardiovascular health, and
many other essentials of whole-body health, while also becoming recognized for
its relation to healthy energy levels and other aspects of a normal
Taurine is an important amino acid found in many organs, being most
concentrated in the heart and the retina of the eye. Taurine is active in muscle
function, as well as in maintaining optimal function of nerve tissue, lending
itself to neurotransmitter balance.
Don't Forget Boron
Dr. Cannell’s Advanced D Formula™ includes FruiteX-B®, a patented boron/calcium
complex that has been shown to support normal Vitamin D metabolism, maintain
joint comfort and flexibility, and promote healthy bones.* Pilot clinical studies
described improvement in Vitamin D status and joint support in subjects consuming FruiteX-B®.
Support for Your Bones and Muscles*
Without adequate Vitamin D intake, the body cannot properly metabolize
Calcium. Vitamin D strengthens bones and also may enhance muscle strength
because of its direct effect on calcium transport in muscles. Because of its
unique interplay with Calcium, Vitamin D can support the health of both of these
important structures. Other ingredients in Dr. Cannell’s Advanced D Formula™
further support the skeletal and muscular systems.*
Powerful Immune Support*
Vitamin D also has an interesting role as a regulator of the immune system.
D3 has unique immune-modulating properties that can support health and
wellness by supporting innate immunity. For additional support, Dr. Cannell’s
Advanced D Formula™ contains Zinc, another immune-supporting nutrient.
Heart and Cardiovascular Support*
Recent research is increasingly pointing towards the importance of Vitamin D
in maintaining healthy heart function. This
premise of Dr. Cannell’s formulation is complemented by the Zinc, Quercetin
and FruiteX-B® functioning as antioxidants, doing their parts in supporting the
stability of cell membranes throughout the cardiovascular system.*
