KEY INGREDIENTS/PROPRIETARY BLENDS IN ARMOR-V:

Omega 3-6-9 blend:

The omega 3-6-9 complex contains ingredients such as fish and coconut oil that are “good” fats (omega fatty acids).  These fatty acids may help increase cardiovascular health, reduce pain and inflammation, and improve mental health.[1,2]

V-F power system blend:

The V-F (vegetable and fruit) blend contains ingredients derived from whole foods such as kelp, spinach, and cranberry.  The combination of these and other ingredients found in the V-F blend may help boost immunity, lower cholesterol, and provide a good source of anti-oxidants (vitamin C).[3,4]

Antioxidant blend:

Lycopene and lutein, the main ingredients found in the antioxidant blend, support eye health, help supplement diets low in green leafy vegetables, and may lower the risk of heart disease.[5,6]

Pro-biotic and immune enhancer blend:

This blend provides over 3 billion active agents (probiotics) that support a healthy gut, improve digestive functions, and boost immunity.[7]

Armor blend:

The Armor blend contain ingredients such as turmeric and quercetin that may help fight infections, reduce inflammation, and improve exercise performance.[8,9]

System maintenance and detoxifying blend:

The detoxifying blend contains several key ingredients like milk thistle seed and saw palmetto that help cleanse (detoxify) the internal systems of the body (i.e. liver, urinary track).[10]

PRODUCT USAGE:

Take 1 serving (6 capsules) daily.  For competitions and intense training sessions take 2 servings daily split equally.
