Kosher and Halal Certification of NUTRILITE Double X Multivitamin / Quixtar:
A double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial examined the blood-test results of 120 men and women before and after taking the reformulated Double X multivitamins six weeks. Those who took Double X multivitamins showed significant increases in plasma levels of vitamins B6, B12, and folate, plus beta-carotene and vitamin E, both important antioxidants. Those who consumed the placebo experienced no change in these levels.
Study participants who took Nutrilite Double X multivitamins also experienced a statistically significant reduction in homocysteine, an amino acid found in the blood that is associated with an increased risk of Coronary Artery Disease (CAD). The placebo group did not experience this reduction in homocysteine. Research continues into the effect of reduction of homocysteine on heart and vascular disease.
Finally, study participants were tested for the extent of DNA damage in dividing cells, and those who took Nutrilite Double X multivitamins showed significantly reduced DNA damage. The placebo group experienced no significant change in DNA damage, which indicates that Double X supports the body’s natural DNA repair process.
The study demonstrates that Double X multivitamins helps maintain normal homocysteine levels and supports normal DNA function and stability.
