Essential Basics 180c by Douglas Laboratories is a comprehensive, highly concentrated vitamin/mineral/trace element supplement containing 28 essential nutritional ingredients. Like Douglas Laboratories’ Basic Preventive® supplements, Essential Basics is a potent antioxidant formula with natural beta-carotene (from D. salina) and natural vitamin E; a high-potency Bcomplex supplement; a significant source of bioavailable calcium and magnesium; and an ironfree, full-spectrum mineral and trace element supplement. Essential Basics does not contain vitamin K, thus making it a safe choice for individuals on anticoagulant medication who may wish to avoid additional vitamin K intake. Essential Basics uses only the purest, most hypoallergenic ingredients and contains no yeast; corn; wheat; sugar or other sweeteners; artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. Every batch is expiration dated to guarantee a minimum of 100% of label claim for all ingredients up to the date printed on the label.
