It continues to amaze me upon reviewing products that claim to enhance aerobic power or strength how they can do so when they do not contain the key nutrients that are supported by peer reviewed studies that increase aerobic power or strength. Obviously Bionetworth, the creators of BIONX SUPERMODEL did not develop the nutrients listed below or any of the nutrients in BIONX SUPERMODEL as the goal was to provide the most beneficial nutrients backed by peer reviewed studies that allow the body to experience it’s potential in one product taking the guess work out of the equation as well as allowing for convenience and savings as to replace BIONX SUPERMODEL it would require approximately 30 individual bottles thus costing a fortune with some of the key nutrients like magnesium orotate not able to be found.

For example to increase aerobic power (VO2 max as much as 10%) you need HIGH LEVELS of:

– standardized hawthorn – increases blood supply to the heart, increases force of hearts contraction, modulates blood pressure.
– Alpha – ketoglutaric acid – in combination with pyridoxal – 5 – phosphate increase aerobic power.
– pyridoxal – 5 – phosphate –
– pantothenic acid – needed to produce coenzyme A which is required to produce aerobic power

– sodium phosphate – increases myocardial ejection fraction.

– magnesium orotate – enhances myocardial contractility and blood supply.

For cardiovascular support key nutrients below are needed:

– Krill Oil – significant reduction in cholesterol tec. see below.

– Vitamin E (tocotrienols and tocopherols) see below.

To increase strength:

– beta-alanign – buffers lactic acid after anaerobic activity and high intensity aerobic sports.

– creatine monohydrate – serves as shuttle for ATP, the bodies energy molecule.

– transferulic acid – increased nerve response in muscle.

For connective tissue repair and maintenance the following nutrients are required:

– Interhealth UC-II – see below.

– 5-Loxin – see below.

– FloraGLO Lutein – see below.

BIONX SUPERMODEL is manufactured at Douglas Labs www.douglaslabs.com The lab is ISO 9001 certified and ISO 17025 accredited as well as NSF Compliant. For additional information see section titled ”Manufacturing and Quality Control Standards and Laboratory Accreditation’s” in BIONX SUPERMODEL Brochure at www.bionx.com The Table of Contents is on page 2.

It is well known that neurological performance can begin to decline in the fifth decade or even earlier. Progressive loss of mental function includes impaired ability to recall names and numbers, loss of concentration and diminished high – order cerebral functions such as thinking and reasoning.

Five nutrients have proven themselves invaluable in studies where cognitive abilities have been compromised. The nutrients are:

– phosphatidylserine (PS) – assists in delaying cognitive decay.
– acetyl – L – carnitine – supports peripheral and central nervous system.
– alpha – lipoic acid – brain antioxidant.
– docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) – makes up brain tissue.
– standardized Ginkgo biloba extract (EGb) – enhances oxygenation of brain.

BIONX SUPERMODEL contains all of the above. For additional information review the sections below in the BIONX SUPERMODEL Brochure at www.bionx.com (Table of Contents on page 2)

“The Means and the Meaning of Proof” addresses testing of BIONX SUPERMODEL

Listed below are the some of the key nutrients in BIONX SUPERMODEL and their purpose.

BIONX SUPERMODEL

– conveniently packaged in a two-bottle system consisting of a caplique, a new technology where liquids and solids can be incorporated into one component, and a tablet. Without the caplique, BIONX SUPERMODEL would consist of five to six bottles.

– InterHealth’s UC-II®, a new nutraceutical, consisting of undenatured (or native) type II collagen and functions in an entirely new way as it turns off your immune response to breaking down bone joint cartilage and is the most bioavailable collagen substrate in the marketplace today*. page 58

– Why is BIONX SUPERMODEL the most potent skin care product in the world? page 37

– 5-Loxin®, a highly concentrated form of Boswellia serrata, an Ayurvedic herbal possessing powerful anti-inflammatory actions which are beneficial for connective tissue repair and maintenance. page 64

– FloraGLO® Lutein, lutein is an important natural antioxidant in our body that helps maintain healthy eyes and skin as we age. Our bodies are unable to manufacture lutein and because of its important functions is deserving of essential nutrient status. page 64

– Krill oil. Note the three peer reviewed studies regarding neurological performance on krill oil on page 50 titled: “krill oil effects on human cognitive performance”; “chronic inflammation”; and “plasma hyperlipidemia.” Krill oil also affects the cardiovascular system as noted by the study on page 54, “krill oil effects on human blood lipid profiles”. After just twelve weeks taking one gram of krill oil, cholesterol was reduced by 13.44%, LDL reduced by 32.03%, HDL increased by 43.92% and triglycerides reduced by 11.03%*.

– Martek Neuromins® which uses algae as a source of the essential fatty acid DHA, the principal structural fatty acid of the gray matter of the cerebral cortex of the brain. The relationship of the essential fatty acids to cardiovascular health is profound because of their role in blood pressure regulation and platelet aggregation. page 58

– magnesium orotate has been used in cardiovascular research applications for many years due to its effects on right ventricular function by enhancing myocardial contractility and blood supply*. Note the study titled “magnesium orotate and cardiac function.” page 57

– sodium R-lipoate is the biologically active form of alpha-lipoic acid. Alpha-lipoic acid is a universal antioxidant that protects neurons however its synthesis drops off significantly by age 70. R-lipoate is up to ten times more effective than alpha-lipoic acid. Note the study “oxidative stress in the aging rat heart is reversed by dietary supplementation with R–lipoic acid.” page 59

– Vitamin E (tocotrienols and tocopherols). Everyone has heard of the antioxidant Vitamin E, but what most people do not know is that vitamin E consists of eight compounds of which 7 are only available in liquid form. For vitamin E to be effective all 8 must be present not just the single non-liquid compound found in supplements. BIONX SUPERMODEL’s liquid component formula, featuring the liquid caplique delivery system, provides therapeutic levels of all eight vitamin E compounds consisting of the full-spectrum of tocopherols and tocotrienols. page 58. Also, note the study on page 54 “tocotrienols in cardioprotection.”

– beta-alanine which is used to increase intracellular concentrations of L-carnosine, is found in high concentration in muscle and brain cells. Historically, L-carnosine has been studied for it’s role as a lactic acid buffer in muscle tissue under anaerobic conditions like weight lifting and high intensity aerobic sports, but its most important applications are in biological preservation or anti-aging. Note studies on page 57, “Carnosine’s effects on athletes” and “L-carnosine and impact on cellular aging and telomere shortening” on page 56.

– standardized hawthorn. Increased levels significantly increase the blood supply to the heart by dilating the coronary vessels and by improving metabolic processes of the heart resulting in an increased force of contraction and is beneficial for modulating blood pressure. page 64.
