Meet Lisa Lent, Founder and CEO of Vitalah
Why Are You Passionate About Oxylent?
In 2000, while based in London and flying internationally for work, I developed multiple clots, known as pulmonary embolus, in my lungs. I immediately sought medical treatment for my condition and began to explore what factors may have contributed to my deteriorating health and well-being. At age 29, I knew my lifestyle was a contributing factor. I learned that low oxygen, cabin pressure, dehydration and radiation can lead to many different types of issues. It was then that I began the search for the ultimate supplement that could provide me well-being amidst the unhealthy environment I had been living in. That's why I developed Oxylent.
What is Oxylent?
Oxylent is a powdered effervescent vitamin. It provides complete, synergistic, cellular nutrition in a highly absorbable form. A single effervescent packet of Oxylent dissolves quickly in water to provide a unique blend of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and enzymes that promote oxygenation, hydration, circulation and rejuvenation.
Why Should People Take Oxylent?
It is vital that we take proper care of our bodies and nourish them with the highest quality food and nutrition available. We tend to push ourselves daily, which creates stress on our body that can lead to aging, illness and disease. Adequate rest and nutrition are things we may take for granted but are critical for optimum health. Many of us live in oxygen-deficient environments which may create added stress on our organs. Oxylent, along with a well balanced diet, is a great way to ensure you receive beneficial amounts of key vitamins to promote cellular vitality.
What Makes Oxylent Unique?
Oxylent provides a blend of essential ingredient in a highly absorbable delivery system called effervescent vitamins. In addition to several essential vitamins, Oxylent provides the unique ingredient, catalase, which is a naturally occurring enzyme that protects cell membranes from oxidative damage by converting millions of harmful free radicals like hydrogen peroxide into nourishing oxygen and water.
What Vitamins Does Oxylent Contain, and Why Are They Important?
We have chosen to take key vitamins and give you effective amounts, so your body benefits and receives an adequate dosage to ensure good health. In addition to these vitamins, Oxylent also contains several important minerals, such as iodine, calcium, magnesium, zinc, potassium and many trace elements.
Vitamins in Oxylent
- Vitamin C (Ascorbic acid): Promotes calcium absorption and boosts the immune system.
- Vitamin D: The vital importance of Vitamin D3 is proven by leading research institutions worldwide, and is now recognized as a key ingredient for bone and immune health.
- B1 Thiamin (Thiamin Hydrochloride) - May improve mental ability and aid indigestion.
- B2 Riboflavin (Riboflavin 5 phosphate): Supports healthy skin, nails and eyes.
- B3 Niacin: Helps release energy from nutrients.
- B6 (Pyridoxine Hydrochloride): Promotes absorption of amino acids.
- Folic Acid: Consuming sufficient amounts of folic acid before and during pregnancy may prevent neural tube defects in newborns, including spina bifida.
- B12 (Cyanocobalamin): Assists the function of the nervous system and the formation of red blood cells.
- B5 Pantothentic acid (d-Calcium Pantothenate): Critical in the metabolism and synthesis of carbohydrates, proteins and fats.
What Else is in Oxylent?
Oxylent also contains important minerals such as:
It also contains catalase, an enzyme, and the amino acid L-arginine as well as CoQ10, a nutrient important for energy production and utilization. What it doesn't contain is almost as important as what it contains; Oxylent contains absolutely no artificial sweeteners, flavoring or coloring. It's actually flavored with stevia extract, an herb.
Why Do You Think Oxylent is Better Than Typical Vitamin Pills?
Well, there is nothing typical about Oxylent. Oxylent is a unique blend of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes that provides optimum nutrition for your body in one small convenient packet. Catalase, which is a naturally occurring enzyme in your body, promotes the natural conversion of damaging free radicals to oxygen and water, enhancing cellular oxygenation. The research on Vitamin D3 (the form of D most utilized by the body) shows many people are deficient of this essential nutrient. Studies show this deficiency can lead to serious health issues.
Research also shows the effectiveness of effervescence technology. The ingredients in Oxylent are vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes; there are no fillers that your body needs to break down, no added preservatives, just essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes. The most important thing you could do is take your vitamins, as they are essential. But if you take pills that are not easily absorbed or you don't feel like swallowing a ton of them, then how are they going to help your body rejuvenate its cells? Oxylent is easily assimilated and absorbed quickly into the body, which equals immediate action with many people actually experiencing a bit of extra energy as well.
Effervescent Vitamins: A New Frontier
Why Choose Effervescent Vitamins?
Studies are being conducted to establish the most effective way to deliver drugs with some studies indicating effervescent solution is more effective than tablets. For example, a clinical study published in the Journal of Clinical Pharmacology shows that dosing acetaminophen (Tylenol) using an effervescent solution significantly reduced pain following oral surgery within 20 minutes compared to the 45 minutes observed for patients that were treated with standard tablets. Another clinical study published in 2006 in Clinical Therapeutics (vol. 28, pgs 715-24) demonstrated that the painkiller Fentanyl enters the system faster and to a significantly greater extent than a solid citrate form. This study demonstrates that an effervescent solution is more effective than pills moving active ingredients through the membrane inside the cheek, the buccal mucosa.
So Effervescent Vitamins are More Easily Absorbed?
Yes, the powder form improves the bioavailability of vitamins and minerals. Powdered vitamins are made without cellulose, a binder ingredient. They're also absorbed differently than vitamin pills. They don't need stomach acids to break them down and are more easily absorbed in the small intestine. That's really an advantage for people with digestive difficulties. Effervescent vitamins are also a convenient way for parents to give children the essential vitamins they need, and easier for elderly people to take. Older people may have difficulty swallowing vitamins pills, but can easily sip water blended with Oxylent.
