Vitamins act as regulators of metabolic processes in the body and are needed by the body for normal metabolism, growth and maintenance. There are two types of vitamins – fat soluble and water soluble.
Fat soluble Vitamins are stored in the body and include:
Vitamin A – necessary for vision, for healthy body tissue, for proper bone growth and for energy production
Vitamin E – major function is as an antioxidant
Vitamin D – promotes normal bone mineralization and stimulates absorption of calcium in the body
Water soluble vitamins are not stored in the body in appreciable amounts so regular intake is required. These include:
Vitamin C – a powerful antioxidant that enhances the absorption of iron in the body. It assists in the synthesis of neurotransmitters and steroid hormones and converts folic acid to an active form. It is involved in formation of collagen, which is necessary for wound healing and helps maintain healthy skin, bones and blood vessels. Vitamin C can regenerate oxidized vitamin E in the body, thus increasing the antioxidant benefits of vitamin E. Emotional and physical stress increases the body’s need for vitamin C. Also, smokers deplete vitamin C stores much faster than nonsmokers do.
B-complex vitamins - these encompass eight vitamins: thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, B6, folic acid, B12, pantothenic acid and biotin. They all function as coenzymes. A coenzyme joins with an enzyme to activate it. B Vitamins play an essential role in metabolic processes of all living cells by serving as coenzymes. B vitamins assist in metabolism of food into energy. They also aid the body during times of stress and overindulgence.
Minerals are required for growth and help to regulate bodily functions. They are essential to good health.
BSc Multi Vitamin with Executive Stress Formula contains the following essential minerals:
Magnesium – involved in more than 300 essential metabolic reactions in the body. Magnesium is necessary for the transmission of nerve impulses and for the relaxation of skeletal muscle after contraction. It’s involved in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and protein as well as protein synthesis. It’s involved in energy production and aids the release of stored energy into the body. It also aids bone formation.
Iron – is essential to the formation of red blood cells and the transportation of oxygen in the blood. This is why low iron levels can leave you feeling tired and run down. Iron is also required for the storage of oxygen within the muscle cell and for the production of energy in the body.
Iodine – is required for the normal functioning of the thyroid gland.
Zinc – is essential for growth and repair of tissue. It’s involved in formation of collagen, which is necessary for wound healing and also helps maintain healthy immune function.
Copper – is involved in haemoglobin and collagen formation. It also aids the transport of iron in the blood.
Selenium – functions as an antioxidant and is necessary for iodine metabolism.
Manganese – is involved in production of energy in the body and is required for bone formation.
Molybdenum – is a cofactor for enzymes.
Hesperidin – is a bioflavonoid that helps maintain healthy capillaries.
Beta-carotene - is the most active of the carotenoids. It has high provitamin A activity which means the body can transform it into vitamin A. Carotenoids are a highly coloured group of fat-soluble compounds.
Choline – is an essential nutrient that facilitates the movement of fat into cells and decreases fat content within the liver. It is also required for the synthesis of neurotransmitters in brain.
