Our unique, patent-pending Innova V1 is available without a prescription and may help promote melanin production by supporting skin and hair melanocytes from the inside of our bodies. Only V1 addresses all four potential causes of Vitiligo. High antioxidant properties help fight free radicals and oxidative stress. The ingredients have been studied to support healthy inflammation response, promote normal immune function and help manage the body's response to environmental and situational stress.*
V2 - Prevention & Treatment of Vitiligo
We are developing a new Rx only version of V1 with an ultra high potent folate (as folic acid) dose at 5 grams. While there have been promising clinical studies evaluating the affect of 5g folic acid when combined with B12, it should be noted that further safety studies need to be conducted with such high folate levels. We also believe that most people with de-pigmented skin may not require that much folate, and the higher dose may only serve a smaller population. Pre-clinical activities are occurring now
The vitamin complex in Innova V1 features three ingredients known to support healthy skin and promote normal cell function. Along with antioxidant activity and support for immune function, these ingredients may help promote melanin production*
Innova V1 uses D3 and Retinol Palmitate versions due to enhanced bio-activity and the inclusion of these forms in scientific studies.
Vitamin A (Retinol Palmitate) 700mcg
Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) 90mg
Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) 2,000IU
Studies show that people that experience loss of pigmentation may be deficient in B12 and folate. Further research indicates that these vitiligo therapy ingredients when used together support healthy pigment and repigmentation*
Innova V1 utilizes the active form of B12, called methylcobalamin. This way, it does not need to rely on your body to convert the B12 for absorption--a process that may be challenging for people with a B12 deficiency.
Vitamin B12 (Methylcobalamin) 1mg
Folate (Folic Acid) 800mcg
Only the novel Innova V1 compound uses standardized natural extracts
with immunomodulatory, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties, and includes the melanin precursor amino acid, L-Tyrosine. A clinical grade standardized extract of Ginkgo Biloba addresses stressors while Piperine has been shown to promote pigmentation and is known for promoting health inflammatory response
Bioperine also acts as our vegetable capsule's delivery enhancement system, to provide a natural way for the body to absorb the nutrients found in Innova V1.
We like to be open, honest and direct. There is not one therapy that will cure EACH AND EVERY case of Vitiligo. The condition has variabilites and each person has their own variabilities. Just like any healthcare company, results are not guaranteed when you pick up a prescription or try a new therapy. Innova's intent is to use science and innovation to offer the best possible solution.
With all the pharma and biotech companies, still no cure??? Sad reality - Our biotech peers do not invest in this area because there is not one cause for Vitiligo. Since there is not one trigger, drug development is risky and not as attractive for typical pharma companies. There is also the issue of reimbursement for drug companies since some healthcare groups question whether the need is medical vs. cosmetic. Our focus has been on Vitiligo and skin side effects for many years and this is where we continue to invest.
This question is much easier to answer...and more promising. Innova V1 is the only therapy on the market developed to address all four main potential causes of Vitiligo: Immune function, Inflammation response, Body Stress, Environmental stress. In addition, we utilize different active pharmaceutical agents.
Can Innova V1 be taken with other products? We suggest consulting your physician if he/she has prescribed other treatments. They might want to try them each separately to determine which works best. However, Innova V1 may be used in combination. Innova V1 does not have the common side effects of other treatments and uses GRAS ingredients. Innova V1 is not known to complicate or interfere with steroid or UVB therapies.
By now you may understand the complexity of Vitiligo and the differences of the human body. Innova V1 has been developed with ingredients that carry more human scientific studies than any other therapy on the market. We believe it is the best in class solution. However, it may not work for every body. So, we suggest trying Innova V1 for six months. During this time a slowing and ceasing of the condition is the goal. If after 12 months the condition does not slow or stop it may not be the right fit for you. Re-pigmentation may occur during or after the condition slows or stops. It is a different mechanism in your body that takes additional time to develop.
-How long will each bottle last? Innova V1 can be considered fresh and active for more than 2 years.
-Can I take more than 1 capsule daily? We suggest to consult a physician and while the dose in Innova V1 has been tested to be safe with 1 or 2 capsules daily, do keep in mind our scientific studies support our recommended use of 1 per day.
-If results begin, should I increase my dose? No. If it begins working, keep going as is. Our scientific studies support our recommended use of 1 per day.
-Should I stop taking if I see no results within the time guidelines? This is really your choice. Innova V1 is packed with nutrients that the body can benefit from, regardless. Since it does not carry the negative side effects like other Vitiligo therapies, it is a very attractive option.
-Can children take Innova V1? Instructions for use are for adults due to potential choking hazard associated with the swallowing of capsules, and the amount of ingredients used in the formula. Many parents tell us they break open the capsules and sprinkle the contents on food or in drink, but we suggest contacting your pediatrician for their input.
We are first a biologic development company. While we offer certain products that can be purchased direct, we also offer them through the practitioner channel. We operate to high ethical standards and do need to follow health-related confidentiality guidelines. Our products base their success on the science of our ingredients and formulas. We do not base our products off purely anecdotal reports and certainly do not advertise before and after pictures that can be made to mislead. We prefer to transparently list the ingredient / formula studies and our validated QOL studies. It is likely you may find people posting their own progress pictures online.
Innova V1 is made in the United States, at an FDA inspected and approved facility. We use clean non-GMO and gluten free ingredients ...from the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) to the excipients and plant-based capsule delivery system. Our capsules are vegetarian because we understand that people with Vitiligo alter their diets to be healthier.
We support Vitiligo and other quality of life organizations with financial and product support. We also offer scientific study programs: If you have Vitiligo over more than 50% of your body you may qualify for therapy at no cost. If 25-50% you may be eligible for a significant subsidization. Please inquire to participate if we have an active study enrolling.
