Why do you need vitamins and minerals?
In today's world of processed food and fast pace of life, many of us do not provide the necessary recommended daily intake of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients needed for proper functioning. Vitamins are a perfect complement to ingredients that are not covered by the daily diet. The composition of the product was selected to provide a wide range of nutrients in optimal doses.
What is the composition of the NowFoods Special Two product?
Beta-Carotene - a precursor to vitamin A, is a powerful antioxidant that protects against the harmful effects of free radicals.
Vitamin C - mediates the synthesis of collagen, insulin and adrenocortical hormones, essential in the process of iron absorption, has bactericidal properties, supports the functioning of the immune system, neutralizes free radicals.
Vitamin E - helps fight free radicals, is responsible for the correct metabolism, lowers cholesterol, increases oxygen consumption, detoxifies, reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Vitamin B1- plays an important role in tissue respiration processes, including metabolic carbohydrate metabolism. It is one of the most important vitamins, which deficiencies can lead to weakness, fatigue, problems with eyes (nystagmus), circulatory insufficiency, disorders of the digestive system, and even in extreme cases to depression.
Vitamin B3 - is primarily one of the elements forming two extremely important coenzymes: NAD and NADP. Each of them, through the connection with the protein, produces an enzyme called oxidoreductase. In turn, oxidoreductase is a compound that has an inextricable effect on the metabolism of all the basic macronutrients of our food - proteins, fats and carbohydrates. Niacin supplementation also benefits the immune system. Studies show that the systematic use of vitamin B3 leads to an increase in the number of neutrophils. These are white blood cells that allow the destruction of pathogenic microorganisms in the form of bacteria.
Vitamin B6 - participates in the process of protein metabolism, reduces the secretion of prolactin, affects glycogenesis, strengthens the immune system.
Calcium - calcium is responsible for the proper structure of bones and teeth, is one of the most important building blocks of our body, supports the functioning of the cardiovascular system, nervous system and muscles.
Iron - determines the proper transport of oxygen in the body, increases immunity, helps to get rid of carbon dioxide, is responsible for the growth process. Iodine - is responsible for the proper functioning of the thyroid, determines the proper course of the process of growth and maturation.
Magnesium - is one of the most important minerals in the body. It is necessary as a cofactor in hundreds of enzymatic processes in cells. It helps maintain the normal function of muscles and nerves, maintains a steady heart rhythm, supports healthy cardiovascular health, supports the immune system and keeps bones in good condition. Magnesium also helps in maintaining blood sugar and blood pressure and is involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis.
Zinc - is essential in the synthesis of protein and nucleic acids, directs muscle contractility, contributes to the process of insulin formation, accelerates wound healing, improves mental performance, is a cofactor of numerous enzymes.
Copper - is involved in the synthesis of hemoglobin and together with iron participates in the transport of oxygen to every cell, especially to sensitive to hypoxia nerve tissue. The amount of copper depends on the work of the brain - the ability to think, remember, and creativity. Copper affects the transmission of nerve impulses and the level of neurotransmitters. It also facilitates the transport and absorption of iron. It increases the body's immunity and protects against free radicals.
Chromium - affects the production of insulin, promotes glycogen synthesis, increases the concentration of glucose in the muscles, regulates cholesterol.
Choline - is a substance necessary for the proper functioning and construction of every cell of our body. It occurs in the body in compounds called phospholipids, the most-known of them and the most-occurring is lecithin. Phospholipids perform a lot of functions in our body, build cell membranes and act as relays in the nervous system.
Inositol - means good condition of our nervous system (inter alia by maintaining a balance between copper and zinc in brain cells).
Sophora japonica - used as a means to strengthen blood vessels. In Chinese medicine it is considered one of the basic herbs to treat. This melliferous plant contains nearly 30% flavonoids, mainly rutin. In folk medicine, it is used to make tinctures and decoctions that effectively strengthen blood vessels. It contains up to 20% of hydroxyethyl derivatives of rutin, which are more soluble and assimilable than rutin. Their group includes troxerutin, it also contains soforicoside, sorabyllyside, glycosides and essential oils.
Lutein - is a compound of the carotenoid group, has antioxidant activity, has a positive effect on the functioning of our eyesight (strengthens the protective barrier of the retina and absorbs dangerous radiation).
Milk Thistle Extract - milk thistle effectively regulates the passage of digestive content and protects liver cells from the harmful effects of alcohol and micro toxins. It has antioxidant properties, prevents cirrhosis of the kidneys and heart. Thanks to the ability to reduce bad cholesterol in the blood is recommended in the natural treatment of hypercholestrelolemia. In addition, it prevents the formation of deposits and gallstones. It affects the lipid metabolism by slowing down the process of epidermal keratosis, which is used in the treatment of acne and psoriasis.
