Women’s Everyday Life Demands
Daily life for women can at times feel like an endless battle between hectic work schedules, supporting family, maintaining a social life and taking time for personal relationships. While all of these are equally important, we often forget the most important of them all, which is our health and overall wellbeing.
How Those Demands Affect Us
On top of these everyday life demands, women also tend to worry about aging and its impacts on the body above all else. As women age, their bodies go through a variety of changes. Their hormones fluctuate, metabolisms slow down, the natural antioxidant production in skin declines and the bioenergy of skin cells which power collagen creation and the repair process also begin to regress. Surveys have shown that girls as young as 16 years of age start looking at various anti-aging products with the goal of protecting their youth!
While the demands of daily life and the aging process cannot ultimately be avoided, it can certainly be slowed by implementing proper techniques into your everyday lifestyle. These techniques include healthy eating habits, adequate hydration, exercise, sufficient rest and proper supplementation.
Why Supplementing with a Multivitamin is Important
Vitamins A, C, D3, E, K2 and Methylfolate
It is common knowledge that vitamin D combined with calcium is very important for bone health. And with vitamin K2, the combination of these three ingredients work closely to support bone strength. If vitamin K2 is not included in your diet, bones and teeth may not have the calcium they need to be strong which can lead to various health issues including osteoporosis. More specifically, K2 has been successful in treating osteoporosis for many years! It does this by activating two types of proteins which then carry calcium into the bones.†
In addition, vitamin C has a long list of benefits, and as such, has been used as a dietary supplement for many years. These include immune system support, decreased hypertension, and maintenance of elastically in the skin. It is also a powerful antioxidant for the production of collagen, which supports muscle and blood vessel strength. Due to the body being unable to manufacture vitamin C on its own, it is necessary to include it within your diet and/or supplement regimen.†
Vitamin A plays a role in maintaining healthy vision, neurological function and healthy skin, while also acting as a natural antioxidant. Vitamin E, like others, also plays multiple roles within the body—most widely noted for its function and maintenance on the immune system and ability to fight off free radicals.†
Oxylent® is proud to use methylated folate (5-MTHF) within Oxylent® Women’s Multivitamin and Mineral + Superfoods formula to provide the highest quality folate available in its most active form. Many multivitamins on the market today use the synthetic form of folate – folic acid – within their formulas, and research has shown a large percentage of the population is not able to sufficiently convert and utilize this form. Folate has been shown to support cardiovascular, neural and overall health, and supplementing with its most active form is recommended by nutritionists and health care practitioners worldwide. †
Albion® Chelated Minerals
The metals in chelates are absorbed significantly greater than corresponding amounts of ingested
inorganic metal salts (ordinary minerals). Albion® metal amino acid chelates have been chemically validated, and, consequently, are the only known chelates that meet the NNFA definition. They are scientifically and clinically proven to be safe, predictable and effective.
- Their TRAACS trademark proves the existence of the chelate structure
- They are soluble and stable in the acid environment of the stomach
- They are up to 20x more bioavailable than regular minerals
- They don’t compete with each other for absorption like regular, non-chelated minerals can For example, calcium can reduce the absorption of zinc and iron—but not with Albion®
- They do not degrade vitamins like regular minerals can
Included in Oxylent® Women’s are the Albion® chelated minerals Chromium, Magnesium, Manganese, Selenium and Zinc. As was mentioned earlier, due to the various physical and mental demands in life, it is imperative we manage our diets and supplement with vitamins and minerals to avoid deficiencies. For example, the World Health Organization estimates that 17.3% of the global population does not consume adequate zinc in their diets.

Research suggests that the combination of these ingredients provides antioxidant support and assists the anti-aging process while helping to protect the immune system.†
Marine Collagen and Resveratrol
Marine Collagen is a complex, fibrous protein derived from the scales and/or skin of saltwater fish that has been shown to support the flexibility and strength of skin, hair, nails, ligaments, joints, tendons, muscles and bones. It is classified as a type 1 collagen—the most abundant collagen found in the human body. The amino acid structures found in the peptides of fish collagen contain high amounts of glycine, proline and hydroxyproline. When marine collagen is consumed, these peptides have been shown to support collagen synthesis, joint health and overall skin regeneration. Alongside anti-aging benefits, marine collagen has also been shown to support bone healing and growth and joint support.†
Resveratrol is a polyphenol and potent antioxidant found in red wine and various fruits, particularly grapes and vegetables, and has been shown to slow the aging process by decreasing inflammation. While inflammation is a natural bodily response to ward off potentially harmful invaders such as certain bacteria and illnesses, chronic or prolonged inflammation can have a negative impact on aging and overall health.†
