Vita Antioxidant and Core Minerals support good health with a broad range of premium-quality micronutrients. When taken together, you get a carefully formulated balance of four key types of nutrients to nourish, protect, and renew your cells:

  1. Essential vitamins, minerals, and trace minerals that nourish cellular health*
  2. Other beneficial building blocks and substances (often called cofactors) your body needs to use vitamins and minerals effectively*
  3. Dietary phytonutrients and antioxidants to defend against oxidative stress*
  4. Targeted nutrients that can act like cell signaling molecules to help promote the body’s natural health protection and renewal reactions*

Adding the CellSentials to a varied diet will help ensure you consume the right amounts of key nutrients. You will have a great foundation to help support vibrant health every day. When taken for one month, the CellSentials have been shown to increase circulating blood levels of many nutrients known to be beneficial for health.*

The CellSentials go beyond simply supporting good health with nutrients. They also help activate some of your cells’ responses that can keep you healthy with InCelligence Technology. These responses promote youthful cellular function, so your body can adapt to your unique lifestyle needs and help you age well.*


Core Minerals is a premium blend of highly absorbable minerals and trace minerals, plus a valuable amino acid and vitamin C.

Minerals are essential elements for health and well-being. Your body couldn’t function without them. They play a role in all physiological processes and help balance and regulate your body chemistry.*


Core Minerals is an excellent source of magnesium. This essential mineral helps more than 300 enzyme systems work properly. Magnesium is critical for helping the body use calcium and vitamin D so your body can make strong bones. It also supports energy production, as well as nerve, muscle, and cardiovascular function.*


Core Minerals contains high-potency iodine. The mineral is crucial for the normal production of thyroid hormones. These hormones help regulate metabolism, growth, reproduction, and protein synthesis. Supplemental iodine is especially important if you are on a vegetarian diet, avoiding seafood, or restricting your iodized-salt intake.*


The formula’s high-potency selenium aids your body’s natural ability to renew glutathione, an antioxidant made in your body. Selenium is important in thyroid hormone metabolism and immune function. Studies have also shown its helps maintain prostate health.*


Core Minerals is a good source of manganese. Don’t confused this essential mineral with magnesium. Manganese plays different roles. It’s important for protein and glucose metabolism. It supports normal brain function. And, it helps maintain healthy connective tissues, bones, arteries, and other organs.*


Core Minerals is an excellent source of molybdenum. This trace mineral is a cofactor for a number of enzymes and is necessary for the metabolism of sulfur-containing amino acids. It also supports protein metabolism and strong teeth.*


Core Minerals is rich in copper, which is critical for superoxide dismutase (SOD)—an antioxidant enzyme. It helps form hemoglobin and collagen. So, it also plays a role in connective tissue formation and healthy skin.*


Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body. You need it for healthy bones, teeth, muscle, and nerve function. Having enough calcium isn’t the problem for most people. It’s properly using what you have. So it’s important to also get enough vitamin K and magnesium. If you don’t eat much dairy or calcium-rich foods, you may want to consider adding MagneCal D to your daily routine to meet your daily needs. *


Core Minerals is high in zinc, an antioxidant that is vital to overall health. Zinc is involved in many processes, including metabolism, immune function, vision, and skin health.*


The high-potency chromium polynicotinate in Core Minerals is an important component of the Glucose Tolerance Factor (GTF). This helps maintain healthy glucose metabolism already in the normal range.*


Boron supports the body’s ability to use calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus. That makes it necessary for strong bones. It also plays a role in healthy brain function.*


Vanadium helps support healthy serum glucose levels, provided they are already healthy.*


Maintaining a good balance of silicon in the body is important for supporting strong bones and connective tissues.*


N-acetyl l-cysteine (NAC) is a modified amino acid that helps support your body’s production of compounds like glutathione—an antioxidant that plays a role in liver health and detoxification. NAC is also thought to support respiratory and mood health.*

Ultra-Trace Minerals

The blend used in Core Minerals contains many naturally occurring ionic trace minerals. They are sourced from inland sea salt, and 99 percent of the sodium is removed. Ionic trace minerals are mineral molecules that have bonded with water so they can be absorbed. They help conduct electrical signals throughout the body.*


A full range of vitamins is essential to your whole-body well-being. Vita Antioxidant supplies carefully balanced levels of high-quality vitamins and antioxidants, plus the InCelligence Complex.* Some scientific evidence suggests that consumption of antioxidant vitamins may reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer. However, the FDA has determined that this evidence is limited and not conclusive.

Vitamin A

High-potency vitamin A in Vita Antioxidant comes from three sources: retinyl acetate, mixed carotenoids, and beta-carotene. Retinyl acetate is preformed vitamin A for those whose bodies don’t efficiently convert beta carotene to vitamin A. The plant-derived mixed carotenoids include alpha-carotene, gamma-carotene, lycopene, beta-carotene, and more. Beta-carotene is the provitamin form of vitamin A. That means it converts to vitamin A in the body only as needed. It helps maintain a strong heart, immune function, and eye and lung health. The carotenoid antioxidants help maintain skin and eye health by providing oxidative defense against damaging sources of free radicals from the environment.*

B Vitamins

Vita Antioxidant is an excellent source of vitamins B6 and B12, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, biotin, pantothenic acid, and folate. The B vitamins are essential to many aspects of your health. You need them for energy and metabolism; immune function; and healthy hair, skin, and nails.*

Maintaining your cardiovascular health also requires B vitamins. They help maintain already healthy homocysteine levels.* And, as part of a well-balanced diet—that’s low in saturated fat and cholesterol—folate, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12 may reduce the risk of vascular disease. The FDA evaluated the above claim and found that while it is known that diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol reduce the risk of heart disease and other vascular diseases, the evidence in support of the above claim is inconclusive.

B vitamins also support normal brain and nerve function. Folate is especially important for women of childbearing age to help support healthy fetal brain and nerve development.*

Inositol, which is sometimes referred to as vitamin B8, is a sugar alcohol that has B-vitamin-like activity to support healthy cellular function and communication.*

Vitamin D

Your daily dose of sunshine! Support your whole-body health with the high-potency vitamin D in Vita Antioxidant. Many people don’t get enough vitamin D, even those in sunny climates. And this important nutrient continues to show benefits for many aspects of health. It supports calcium absorption for healthy bone density. It also supports healthy cell growth as well as muscle, cardiovascular, and immune function. Vita Antioxidant uses vitamin D3. Research suggests it is better at raising levels of vitamin D in the blood.*

Vitamin E and Mixed Tocopherols

Vita Antioxidant is a good source of vitamin E. It also contains 20 mg of mixed D-gamma, D-delta, and D-beta tocopherols in each tablet. The mixed tocopherols, though not technically vitamin E, offer similar functions. Antioxidants, like vitamin E, help defend your cells against the oxidative stress caused by sunlight, pollution, and stress. All of these can prematurely age your skin. When combined with zinc, beta-carotene, and vitamin C, as in the CellSentials, vitamin E also helps maintain long-term eye health.*

Vitamin C

Vita Antioxidant is rich in vitamin C. USANA uses a unique Poly C® vitamin C blend, which provides higher levels of vitamin C in plasma than ascorbic acid alone.*

Vitamin C is essential for making collagen—proteins that provide elasticity to your connective tissues. That’s why vitamin C is helpful in maintaining healthy veins and arteries, muscles, cartilage, tendons, bones, teeth, and skin. It also supports fat and protein metabolism, as well as the healthy production of immune cells.*

Note: You will notice 300 mg of vitamin C on the Core Minerals label. This is because the magnesium and calcium blends are made partly from the ascorbate forms of the nutrients. Ascorbate is a source of vitamin C.

Vitamin K

Vita Antioxidant is high in vitamin K1 and K2 for maximum effectiveness, as both forms have been shown to be beneficial for bone mineral density. This essential nutrient also has shown benefits for blood clotting and vascular health. Vitamin K is absorbed quickly, but also disappears from circulation in about six hours. So, regular dietary intake of vitamin K throughout the day is important for maintaining adequate amounts in the body. *


See a healthy future for your eyes with lutein. This yellow-pigmented carotenoid is concentrated in the eye’s macula. It acts as a filter for blue light to aid clear vision. Lutein also helps support healthy skin.*


Get an added boost of heart and skin health support with lycopene. It’s one of the six major carotenoids found in your blood. But, your body can’t make lycopene. It must come from your diet. The red-pigmented nutrient is most often found in red fruits and vegetables. It offers great antioxidant activity and also supports intracellular communication.*


Choline is usually grouped with the B vitamins, even though it is not technically a vitamin. Regardless of classification, this key nutrient supports cell structure. It aids in the transmission of nerve impulses from the brain throughout the central nervous system. Choline also supports liver function and helps maintain healthy homocysteine levels.*

Coenzyme Q10

To keep you and your cells full of energy, Vita Antioxidant also includes coenzyme q10. This compound is key to producing the energy needed to power all of your cells. It also acts as an antioxidant to protect against damaging oxidative stress generated during the production of cellular energy.*

If you would like to supplement with more coenzyme q10, consider trying USANA® CoQuinone 30.
