Third-Party Tested For Potency And Purity
Third-party testing is an unbiased quality check by an authorized independent testing laboratory. Vitalah’s products are
independently tested for potency and purity, including comprehensive tests such as heavy metal testing. We require these
vigorous tests to ensure our high quality standards. Oxylent has been shown to be exceptionally pure, containing no
detectable toxins. Oxylent has also been proven to maintain the potency listed on the label. Research has shown that vitamins
stored in water lose their potency. Vitalah recommends you consume Oxylent shortly after it dissolves in the water. Since
Oxylent is a dry base, in an air-tight packet, its high potency is unimpaired.
Highest Quality Bioavailable Albion Chelated Minerals
Oxylent contains only the highest quality-ingredients in their most absorbable form in order to deliver a formula of
exceptional integrity and efficacy. Selecting
Albion® Minerals for Oxylent
reflects that commitment. Albion Human Nutrition is the most established
and globally recognized leader in the chelate industry. Albion is the first bisglycinate chelate manufacturer to be approved by EFSA,
Food Safety Authority. Gold Medallion® status is awarded to those Albion customers whose products have been recognized for their
Effervescent Technology Allows for Faster Distribution and Delivery of Vital Nutrients
According to published scientific evidence, effervescent technology is both better and faster absorbed than tablets. Oxylent's
effervescent powder provides nearly 100% bioavailability. When you compare Oxylent to other brands of effervescent multivitamins,
you will agree—there is NO COMPARISON.
Sweetened With Stevia, No Sugars or Artificial Sweeteners
Vitalah uses stevia only in all of its great-tasting Oxylent formulas, rather than sugar or artificial sweeteners, to produce the
most natural and health promoting products possible. Stevia has a long record of safety as well as potential health benefits, making
it an ideal natural alternative to both sugar and artificial sweeteners.
Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) and Catalase to Neutralize Free Radicals
SOD, an antioxidant, is one of the body’s most powerful defenses against free radicals. Each I.U. of SOD eliminates billions of free
radicals, and has a life of several days in the body. Our SOD is derived from a melon, microencapsulated, GMO free, solvent free, allergen
free, and gluten free.
The crucial role played by antioxidants (negatively charged particles) is their ability to react with free radicals (damaging, positively
charged particles) in the body. By doing this they eliminate the damaging properties of the free radical — either stopping the chain
reaction of oxidation, or preventing the chain reaction from ever setting in motion in the first place. SOD and catalase work together
to neutralize superoxide radicals; SOD first reduces (which means adds an electron to) the superoxide radical (O2-) to form oxygen (O2)
and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). Catalase then helps reduce the hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) into water (H2O) and oxygen (O2).
Recent scientific studies have shown that supplementing with microencapsulated SOD and catalase:
- Has positive effects on stress, fatigue, pain, sleep troubles, and quality of life1
- Supports concentration1
- Helps protect against cardiovascular health issues2
- Significantly improves oxidative stress in athletes after physical training3
- Protects against the DNA damage associated with oxidative stress4
- Promotes a protective immune response (in addition to its antioxidant properties)5
- Reduces the cell damage associated with injury6
The Importance of Microencapsulation
Until recently, effective supplementation of SOD and catalase has been limited by human digestion, since the antioxidant properties
of SOD and catalase are destroyed by stomach acid. But microencapsulation makes it possible to overcome this limitation. The recent
innovation of microencapsulation allows SOD to remain bioactive after supplementation. It protects SOD and catalase from stomach acid,
allowing their delivery to the intestines for sustained release and absorption. Whereas many forms of microencapsulated SOD on the
market today are not gluten free because they use a wheat protein called gliadin, Oxylent’s SOD is microencapsulated in gluten-free,
GMO free starch microspheres, which are then coated with a protective film of arabic gum. This exclusive microencapsulation technology
is patented by Vitalah’s supplier.
A Healthier Sports Drink
Oxylent makes a great truly healthy sports drink full of nutrients and much-needed electrolytes. There are many sports and fitness
beverages on the market that contain added electrolytes, vitamins, or other nutrients for use during and after intense physical
exercise. However, many of these drinks contain ingredients that not only provide no nutritional value but also pose potential health
- Artificial Sweeteners such as sucralose (Splenda) and acesulfame potassium (Sweet One) are associated with a wide variety of serious
- Artificial Colors including Red 40, Yellow 5, and Yellow 6 are derived from petroleum and are linked to extensive health hazards.
- Artificial Additives used for texture, color, and/or flavor—including Propylene Glycol, Potassium Benzoate, Polysorbate 60, Polysorbate
80, Calcium disodium EDTA—many of which are rated as health hazards by the Environmental Working Group (EWG).
- Fructose. Researchers have recommended avoiding this form of sugar, which is also a major immune system depressant, like all sugars,
and competes with the absorption of vitamin C.
Oxylent daily multivitamin drink is a healthier alternative—delivering electrolytes plus a full panel of other essential vitamins,
minerals, enzymes, antioxidants, and amino acids—with none of the risky additives. Each packet contains:
- 50 mg Sodium – As much as most sports/electrolyte drinks
- 225 mg Potassium – More than most sports/electrolyte drinks
- 100% DV of 7 B Vitamins – Exercise may increase B vitamin requirements, and low or marginal levels may decrease ability to perform
exercise at high intensities.
- 1000 mg Vitamin C – Vitamin C is involved in many biochemical pathways important to exercise metabolism and may benefit exercise
- No Sugar – Sweetened with natural stevia only, which has a Glycemic Index of zero and does not cause the spiked blood sugar levels
or the over stimulation of insulin that can decrease athletic performance.
Without any artificial ingredients that pose risks to your health, each packet of Oxylent provides not just the electrolytes sodium
and potassium but also a full panel of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, antioxidants, and amino acids—all in one delicious drink with no
sugar, calories, gluten, dairy, or additives.
When is the Best Time for an Athlete to Take Oxylent?
During a workout the body eliminates essential minerals through perspiration. It is not possible to pre-load minerals, in anticipation
of depletion, therefore the ideal time to take Oxylent is following a work out. Endurance athletes such as long distance runners and
triathletes may increase their performance by taking Oxylent during the long work out. This may assist in avoiding extreme depletion.
