What is Basic Maintenance®?

Basic Maintenance® is a multivitamin/mineral supplement designed to be taken daily, packed with a full complement of clinical-strength vitamins and minerals essential for organ function and protection. It contains L-methylfolate, the only form of folate with the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier, activated forms of B vitamins, vitamin D-3, and a comprehensive list of high-quality nutrient minerals, making it a valuable component of your daily nutritional regimen.


How Does Basic Maintenance® Work?

Basic Maintenance® contains a variety of antioxidants, which help to neutralize and repair damage from oxidative stress. Nutrient antioxidant deficiency is a known cause of numerous chronic and degenerative pathologies [1]. Vitamins C and E work synergistically against free radicals. Alpha-tocopherol, the most bioactive form of vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin and potent antioxidant. Due to its fat-solubility, α-tocopherol protects cell membranes from oxidative damage and lipid peroxidation [1]. Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin and is essential for collagen, carnitine, and neurotransmitter biosynthesis. Beta-carotene (vitamin A) is also a fat-soluble antioxidant. It is also known as a carotenoid and is converted to retinol, an essential nutrient for vision [1].


Vitamin D-3, cholecalciferol, is the form of vitamin D that our bodies make naturally in response to sunlight and is necessary for the maintenance of bone health and calcium homeostasis [2]. Unfortunately, vitamin D deficiency is a common problem as research on skin health has discouraged many people from exposing their skin to the sun. Vitamin D deficiency is linked with osteoporotic bone loss, increased bone fractures, autoimmune disease, and neurodegenerative disorders [3]. 

Vitamin K aids in the maintenance of healthy bones by regulating calcium uptake in bone tissue, increasing new bone formation, and reducing bone resorption [4]. Zinc, copper, manganese, and boron also support bone mineralization [5].

Selenium (Se) is a trace mineral that forms the active site of several antioxidant enzymes and is a known immunomodulator, along with vitamins A and D. Selenium is also necessary for proper thyroid function [1]. Iodine is also an essential mineral, particularly related to thyroid health, as it is a necessary element in the synthesis of thyroid hormone [6].

B vitamins contained in this supplement blend; thiamine, riboflavin, niacinamide, B-6, biotin, pantothenic acid, folate, and B-12, are commonly associated with energy production, nervous system maintenance, and cardiovascular health. Thiamine, riboflavin, niacinamide, B-6, biotin, and pantothenic acid are cofactors for enzymes needed for cellular energy production through the metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. Thiamine, folate, B-12 are involved in the development of neurons and neurotransmitter synthesis [7]. Methylfolate and B-6 are required for homocysteine metabolism and have been linked to mood improvement [8].


What are the Suggested Uses for Basic Maintenance®?

  • A convenient daily multivitamin/mineral to fulfill nutritional needs where diet and lifestyle fall short.
  • Provides activated forms of B-vitamins for maximum efficiency, regardless of MTHFR gene status.
