Polyshield Technology™ is a unique process whereby polyphenols(antioxidants) are extracted from the pomegranate peel and are used to shield vitamins and minerals, resulting in increased potency, enhanced absorption and sustained release, hence revolutionizing the way vitamins and minerals are delivered to the body!
The Power is in the Peel™
Polyshield Technology™ stems from the pomegranate peel, which research shows is packed with polyphenols. Polyphenols are antioxidants that exist in certain plant-based foods and contain anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. There are many scientific studies demonstrating the health benefits of pomegranate extracts including antibacterial, antiviral, blood lipid lowering and anti-inflammatory properties. The peel accounts for roughly 60% of the pomegranate fruit, and possesses more antioxidant activity than its seeds, juice and pulp.
Polyphenols extracted from the pomegranate peel are used in this shielding technology to protect the vitamins and minerals. The shield formed protects the core molecules and reduces interaction with the enzymatic reactions involved in metabolism. Due to its optimal stability, the shield allows its nutrients to remain protected as they travel through something called First-Pass metabolism, which is breakdown by the liver. Therefore, POLYSHIELD TECHNOLOGY™ serves as a better alternative delivery system for improved absorption of vitamins and minerals compared to the current technologies.
Pilot study demonstrating the absorption of Dr. D’s Vitamin D3 plus K2 compared to placebo
Group 1: Dr. D’s Vitamin D3 plus K2
Group 2: Placebo
Conclusion: The blood levels of vitamin D3 increased in the group treated with Dr. D’s Vitamin D3 plus K2 with Polyshield Technology™ whereas the placebo group did not show a difference from the initial values. The results illustrate the enhanced absorption of Dr. D’s Vitamin D3 plus K2 powered by Polyshield Technology™.
