We know that through smart and targeted therapies with efficacious products people can live fuller, longer and happier lives. Since 2001, AMARC and PolyMVA have been providing quality, FDA compliant products that have helped thousands of people achieve better health.

Lipoic Acid Mineral Complex is the key component that makes Poly-MVA a uniquely-formulated supplement, containing a proprietary blend of the mineral palladium bonded to alpha-lipoic acid, Vitamins B1, B2 and B12, formyl-methionine, N-acetyl cysteine, plus trace amounts of molybdenum, rhodium, and ruthenium. Poly-MVA assists in boosting immune response by targeting key pathways with very specific nutrients and supports cellular metabolism. What makes Poly-MVA unique is the proprietary manufacturing process by which the mineral palladium is sequestered to lipoic acid and thiamin. No other company produces a product similar to Poly-MVA because of the preparation and bonding process through which LAMC is manufactured. The proprietary formulation of LAMC with other vitamins, minerals, and amino acids provides considerable targeted protection and mitochondrial support, helping to enable optimum functioning of multiple essential body systems.
