1. What is Poly-MVA?
Poly-MVA is a powerful, patented dietary supplement that is the
first in a remarkable new category of supplements known as Lipoic
Acid Palladium Complexes. Poly-MVA is a unique, patented proprietary
blend of palladium, alpha-lipoic acid, vitamins B1, B2 and B12,
the amino acids formyl-methionine and acetyl cystiene, and trace
amounts of molybdenum, rhodium, and ruthenium.
2. What is Lipoic Acid Palladium Complex and what makes it
Lipoic Acid Palladium Complex is an extraordinary compound that
chemically bonds palladium (a trace mineral) to alpha lipoic acid
(a powerful antioxidant) and B-1. The technique of bonding these
two materials together is so unique that the U.S. government has
issued a patent on the process. The binding of palladium with alpha
lipoic acid dramatically increases nutrient absorption at the cellular
level and throughout the body. This is an exclusive breakthrough
that distinguishes Poly-MVA from any other supplement.
3. How does palladium work within the body?
Within Poly-MVA, the proprietary palladium lipoic acid acts in
a similar way to the cobalt found in Vitamin B-12 (cyanocobalamin).
The palladium is sequestered or bonded in the palladium lipoic acid
molecule found in Poly-MVA. Palladium serves primarily as a transport
mechanism to dramatically enhance the uptake of lipoic acid, while
also being theorized to have an effect on the electrical potential
of the cell. While the lipoic acid palladium complex contained in
Poly-MVA provides a significant portion of the unique action of
the supplement, other important vitamins, minerals and amino acids
enhance the function of the palladium lipoic complex, while also
contributing to the support of the body’s natural processes.
4. Why do people take Poly-MVA?
People take Poly-MVA for optimum health and maximum nutritional
support. It is designed to increase energy, reduce fatigue, help
to enhance overall health and well-being, and provide nutritional
support for those who may have nutrients depleted during chemotherapy
or radiation treatments.* Many people have found Poly-MVA to be
a tonic and helpful in improving quality of life for those undergoing
a difficult treatment regimen.*
- Provides superior antioxidant and free radical protection*
- Offers fast acting, immediate absorption for quick results
- Supports energy production at the cellular level*
- Enhances and supports quality of life
- Promotes overall health and may replenish nutrients that
may be depleted during chemotherapy and radiation*
The late oncologist, Rudy Falk, MD, said, “Poly-MVA has properties
that make it beneficial in supporting and optimizing cellular functions,
protecting DNA, and it shows promise in helping to re-energize cells
by the transfer of energy, especially those under stress.”
5. I’ve heard of people who have used Poly-MVA while they
are undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatments.
According to FDA regulations, supplements cannot be sold or intended
for use in the treatment of any disease. Poly-MVA is a nutritional
supplement designed to support essential body functions and many
doctors recommend the use of Poly-MVA based on their own experience
and results. Poly-MVA is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or
prevent any disease. Many people may take Poly-MVA as a nutritional
supplement while undergoing medical treatments such as chemotherapy
or radiation because it helps to support and strengthen normal cellular
function. Since chemotherapy and radiation treatments often place
the body under stress and have unpleasant side effects, nutritional
supplements such as Poly-MVA may help to replenish nutrients that
may be depleted, and restore energy and function to all cells and
tissues.* Those undergoing these therapies use Poly-MVA for nutritional
support. Many who are not experiencing a significant health challenge
take it because of the basic nutritional support it provides as
part of their regular daily supplementation.*
6. What dosage of Poly-MVA do I need to take, or is it doctor
There are some physicians who have developed an integrated regimen
that includes Poly-MVA, along with other nutritional supplements
and dietary changes, but those are protocols developed by individual
physicians that use our products. If you’re interested in integrated
nutritional or holistic regimens, or if you’re seeking treatment
for an illness, you should seek out the advice of a physician familiar
with those treatment protocols.
7. Can people take Poly-MVA for daily support or any other
Yes. Poly-MVA is an ideal and superior oral antioxidant. It was
intended to help support many of the body’s systems, strengthen
immune response, enhance energy production, and improve quality
of life by providing high quality essential nutrients in a unique
form that can be easily assimilated by the body.* Additional research
to further demonstrate and validate benefits that this powerful
supplement may achieve are underway.
8. How long does a bottle last? How much do people normally
How long a bottle lasts depends on how much you take and what
size bottle you order. Depending on individual use, a bottle of
Poly-MVA could last as much as 192 days (over six months in the
large bottle). If you are using Poly-MVA to help maintain optimum
health and function, a bottle can last a few months or more.* However,
for those who are using more of it to increase energy or for nutritional
support during chemotherapy and radiation therapies, a bottle may
last 6 days.*
AS A DAILY SUPPORT TO MAINTAIN OPTIMUM HEALTH:
The recommended use for those seeking to maintain optimum health
is 1/4 to 2 teaspoon per day, depending on body weight and desired
FOR MAXIMUM SUPPORT:
For those seeking enhanced energy production and nutritional
support during certain therapies and states of compromised body
systems, the recommended use is 2 teaspoons 4-6 times per day(8-12
teaspoons total) for the first 12 to 16 weeks, or until they get
the desired effects they are seeking.* Some individuals that feel
depleted may choose to stay on the higher amounts for longer period
of time and that is fine if they choose to do so. Each individual
responds differently and you might find that the optimum benefit
for you is maintained at the higher recommended use level for some
time. Others may reduce to the normal recommended use after 4-8
weeks and cut down to the maintenance use after 12-16 weeks.

9. How long does it take to get results?
Dr. Merrill Garnett, whose research led to the discovery of Poly-MVA,
believes that most individuals will notice a difference in how they
feel within the first 2-4 weeks. In some cases, we have seen dramatic
results (energy improvement, increased appetite, etc.) in just a
matter of days, depending upon use.
10. Is Poly-MVA safe?
All of the ingredients are natural, safe and bound. Poly-MVA
is assimilated in the body as a food. During the development of
Lipoic Acid Palladium Complexes, high doses were given to animals
in an attempt to determine if there was a toxicity level, but even
at the highest administered dose (fifty times higher than the maximum
recommended dose), no negative effects were observed in any of the
test animals. Based on this data, the natural ingredients in the
product, as well as the safe use in humans and animals for over
twelve years, Poly-MVA appears to be extraordinarily safe. Additionally,
to our knowledge, Poly-MVA does not appear to interfere with the
actions or effects of any other medications or treatments. It should
still be noted that all of us are different and a few may react
differently. If this is the case, please discontinue use and contact
11. Are there any other effects?
Poly-MVA does not have any known side effects. However, as is
the case with any dietary supplement, we recommend that if you have
any medical condition that you are under the advice and care of
a physician. Certain medical conditions may be susceptible to a
rapid change in symptoms when using some classes of dietary supplements,
including Lipoic Acid Palladium Complexes. Being monitored by a
physician is always advisable to ensure optimum health and well-being.
12. Is there anything that may inhibit or minimize the effectiveness
while on Poly-MVA?
Chelating agents, Vitamin C over 1000mg, and other antioxidants
at high levels well above their recommended daily allowance should
be minimized if possible (we recommend waiting at least six hours
before taking Poly-MVA). Poly-MVA not only quenches the free radicals
but utilizes them in the cells’ energy cycle.* Free alpha lipoic
acid should be minimized because it may compete with the palladium
lipoic acid in the Poly-MVA and is not necessary while using Poly-MVA.
Tobacco products, alcohol and excessive caffeine intake can also
slow down the uptake of Poly-MVA, in addition to working against
the goal of optimum health. Graviola, Zeolites, hydrazine sulfate
and Pau D’Arco may interfere with the absorption of Poly-MVA, so
we recommend alternating these products on different days.
13. Why does it seem that this product is more costly compared
to other supplements?
It is competitive with other dietary supplements in size and
benefit. Its unique ingredients are a combination of palladium and
other precious minerals, which are some of the most expensive metals
in the world (palladium is typically more expensive than platinum).
Therefore, the raw materials cost is much higher than a typical
supplement. In terms of the cost of the raw materials and manufacturing
process vs. the selling price, Poly-MVA is similar in manufacturing
margin to many other nutritional supplements.
14. How long has Poly-MVA been in use?
Poly-MVA has been available in the U.S. since 1992. The first
several years were spent trying to present the scientific data to
physicians. There are now many physicians around the world using
Poly-MVA in their practices as part of an overall treatment program
for general health and well-being. Additionally, many of these practitioners
recommend Poly-MVA, so the value of the supplement is becoming more
widely known and used.
