Why has Dr. Hoffman reformulated his popular multivitamin, Foundation Formula?

Many of you recall the recent vitamin E "scare" in which it was alleged that vitamin E was harmful. While it can be demonstrated that many of the analyses faulting vitamin E were based on selective culling of data from negative studies, and that these data are hardly applicable to prevention in healthy persons, faith in the benefits of vitamin E was undermined.

That's why Dr. Hoffman undertook a reformulation of Foundation Formula, his basic multi. He upgraded the E in the new Foundation Formula to the highest quality natural mixed tocopherols, rich in heart-healthy gamma tocopherol. It is now believed by many researchers that unless alpha tocopherol is complemented by gamma tocopherol, much of the cancer and cardiovascular preventive potential of vitamin E cannot be fully realized. Moreover, the daily dose of E delivered by Foundation Formula is 200 International Units, safely below the threshold of the upper limits of Vitamin E that resulted in harm in any of the negative studies.

Additionally, Dr. Hoffman went beyond E in reformulating Foundation Formula, incorporating generous amounts of tocotrienols, vitamin E's natural partner.

Tocotrienols are ideal accompaniments to vitamin E. Like vitamin E, tocotrienols are potent antioxidants that combat lipid peroxidation (the damaging of fats by free radicals).

Human studies indicate that, in addition to their antioxidant activity, tocotrienols have other important functions, especially in maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system. Test tube and animal studies indicate a possible role for tocotrienols in protecting against cancer (particularly breast and skin cancer). In one study in patients with severe atherosclerosis of the carotid artery--the main artery supplying blood to the brain--tocotrienol administration (200 mg per day) reduced the level of lipid peroxides in the blood. Moreover, in patients receiving tocotrienols for 12 months, the size of atherosclerotic plaques became smaller. Recent studies have shown that tocotrienols exert an even more protective effect than Vitamin E on the linings of arteries.

It is with these latest research findings in mind that Dr. Hoffman presents this new and improved version of his popular multi-vitamin, Foundation Formula.
