1 serving, 1 capsule:
Vitamin C - 500 mg - has many important functions in the body, but is best known for its ability to improve immune system function. In addition, vitamin C increases the formation of collagen, which is important for the smooth functioning of the musculoskeletal system and the rate of recovery after injury or trauma, as well as influencing the condition and appearance of the skin. Peri-workout vitamin C was popular in the old school of bodybuilding to maximise immune support as well as strengthen joints.
Vitamin B1 - 25 mg - plays an important role in the functioning of the nervous system and regulates energy-generating activities in glucose metabolism. Its deficiency causes beri-beri disease and also causes cardiovascular problems. A high intake of carbohydrates, especially in highly processed forms, increases the need for thiamine.
Vitamin B2 - 25 mg - is involved in a variety of metabolic activities including the metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids and proteins, and is also necessary for the normal course of energy processes in the so-called respiratory chain. Indirectly, they condition the growth of muscle mass and help to develop training capacities such as strength and endurance. Athletes have a greater need for water-soluble vitamins, especially vitamin B2, as significant amounts are lost through sweat during exercise.
Vitamin B3 - 54 mg - Vitamin PP (niacin) is a class of chemical compounds that includes nicotinic acid and its derivative nicotinamide, as well as the coenzymes NAD (nicotinamide dinucleotide) and NADP (nicotinamide dinucleotide phosphate). Nicotinic acid is mostly found in products of plant origin, while nicotinamide is found in products of animal origin (as a component of NAD and NADP). These chemical compounds are virtually non-existent in their natural state. Niacin-rich foods include those with a high tryptophan content (e.g. milk, eggs), which can be converted exactly into vitamin PP. Niacin has a number of health-promoting effects, the most well-known being its effect on cholesterol levels and the regulation of the ratio between LDL and HDL lipoproteins.
Vitamin B6 - 9.5 mg - has a metabolism-regulating effect on more than 100 different enzymes. It accelerates many changes in the body that are closely related to, but not exclusively linked to, metabolic rate. It is primarily involved in the metabolism of proteins and fat-soluble vitamins, as well as in the conversion of glucose to glycogen and glycogenolysis (the process of breaking down glycogen to glucose), i.e. the breakdown of glycogen for energy needs. Vitamin B6 is needed in muscle tissue for the formation of haemoglobin and affects blood pressure and muscle contractility. It should be noted that it also plays an important role in maintaining good heart rhythm.
Folic acid - 400 mcg - is important in the purine and nucleic acid synthesis pathway, as well as in the metabolic processes involved in the conversion of certain amino acids. This vitamin B9 is believed to reduce the danger of malignant tumour lesions and to influence the normal growth of all cells in the body, including muscle and nerve cells. Athletes on reduction diets, as well as pregnant women, the elderly and alcohol users are at risk of deficiency.
Vitamin B12 - 1000 mcg - gut microbes synthesise vitamin B12 in the human digestive tract. This vitamin is generally resistant to heat and acidic environments. Important roles for vitamin B12 include protein synthesis, lipid and carbohydrate metabolism and influence on the formation of blood morphotic components and nerve sheaths. A unique role in sports supplementation is played by the so-called dibencoside, a vitamin B12 coenzyme (adenosylcobalamin) with anabolic properties. The most noticeable effect of the aforementioned supplements is an increase in appetite. Cyanocobalamin is included in vitamin preparations as well as several iron supplements.
Biotin - 450 mcg - Biotin is heat-resistant, although it is sensitive to the presence of oxidising chemicals. Vitamin H is found in many enzymes (as a prosthetic group) derived from fatty carboxylases such as pyruvate carboxylase and acetyl-coenzyme A carboxylase (both of which play an important role in gluconeogenesis and fatty acid production), propionyl-coenzyme A carboxylase and 3-methylcrotonyl-coenzyme A carboxylase are examples (which are involved in BCAA metabolism). Deficiency of this vitamin manifests itself as lack of appetite, dry skin and elevated cholesterol levels. On the other hand, its excess has not been observed. Biotin can be found in multivitamin supplements and various skin, hair and nail care products.
Vitamin B5 - 18 mg - (pantothenic acid) is a molecule consisting of -alanine and pantothenic acid, which is often found in plant and animal foods. Yeast, green leafy vegetables and meat are rich sources of vitamin B5. Pantothenic acid can also be found in various vegetables, fruit and dairy products, but in much lower concentrations. D-pantothenic acid is the naturally occurring version of vitamin B5. Regarding the stability of the vitamin, it should be mentioned that it is stable in an inert environment and reacts poorly to increases in temperature. Its main action relates to regeneration.
Zinc - 15 mg - is stored in bone and muscle tissue, and only a small part of the total pool is present in plasma. Meat, liver, beans, nuts and grains are the primary dietary sources of zinc. The bioavailability of this element is increased by citric acid and the presence of specific amino acids, among others. Its bioavailability decreases in the presence of non-haem iron, copper, oxalic acid, certain fibre fractions and excessive phytates. Zinc has a multifaceted function in the human body, as it is a component of approximately 200 enzymes and is therefore involved in virtually all metabolic or energetic processes, such as protein synthesis, hormone production, immune systems, etc.
Dosage: 1 serving, 1 capsule per day.
