Benefits of vitamins & minerals
Vitamin A: Maintains healthy skin, hair, and mucous membranes. Aids in cell differentiation and visual acuity at night.
B Complex: B complex vitamins play many roles in the human body but primarily they nourish the brain and nervous system. A diet high in refined foods or life of stress puts a greater demand on the body for these important nutrients. B1: skin, eyes, hair, B2: nourishes the tissues of the body, B6: beneficial for PMS, B12: anxiety and depression, Folic Acid: works synergistically with B12, cell division and replication, stimulates the formation of red blood cells. Biotin: metabolism of protein, fats and carbohydrates, B3: energy production, Pantothenic acid: nourishes the adrenal glands which helps with coping with stress.
PABA: works synergistically with folic acid.
Choline: helps make acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter in the brain, Inositol: helps in metabolism of fat and cholesterol, absorption and utilization if fat.
Vitamin B6: ( Pyridoxine) Promotes proper protein and fat metabolism. Participates in neurotransmitter formation.
Vitamin B12: Necessary for healthy red blood cell development, cell division and nervous system function.
Beta-Carotene: Is converted to Vitamin A in the body. Fat soluble anti-oxidant: helps protect against oxidative cell damage.
Biotin: Essential for fat synthesis and the breakdown of protein and carbohydrates for energy.
Vitamin C: Water soluble anti-oxidant; promotes Iron absorption from plant sources. Necessary for Collagen formation.
Calcium: Strengthening component bones and teeth. Integral to blood clotting, muscle and nerve function. Calcium Pantothenate supports the glandural system and helps promote a feeling of well-being.
Vitamin D: Regulation the absorption of and use of calcium and phosphorus, leading to proper muscle and bone function.
Vitamin E: Fat soluble anti-oxidant which protects cell membranes from oxidative damage.
Folic Acid: Necessary for DNA synthesis and red blood cell formation; some studies suggest protection against birth defects.
Iron: Needed for oxygen transport in blood and muscle. Part of the enzymes involved in producing energy.
Kelp: Kelp contains nearly thirty minerals which nourish the thyroid and pituitary glands. By enhancing the action of the glandular system, it helps balance the body's metabolism and rate it burns the calories. Kelp is a seaweed and grows in the rich ocean beds, far below surface pollution levels. Because ot its high nutrient content, this herb is beneficial for a wide range of applications. It is known to nourish the sensory nerves, brain membranes, also spine cord and brain tissue. Kelp contains alginic acid which can help protect the body against the effects of radiation.
Lecithin: Lecithin is essential to every cell and organ in the body, providing nourishment to the body, helping the body to regulate metabolism, increase defenses and break down fat and cholesterol.
Niacin: Works with enzymes to produce energy from foods. In large doses, reduces serum cholesterol.
Pantothenic Acid: Used as a building block of coenzyme A, which the body makes to release energy from foods.
Primrose Oil: Evening primrose oil supplies linolenic and linoleic essential fatty acids.
Zinc: An anti-oxidant nutrient: necessary for protein synthesis; wound healing; vital for the development of the reproductive organs, prostate functions and male hormone activity; maintains the body's alkaline balance; aids digestion and metabolism of phosphorus.
Minerals: Trace minerals and macro minerals play a crucial role in maintaining health. It is well established that some mineral deficiencies can be linked to physical conditions including grey hair, baldness, asthma, eczema, psoriasis, epilepsy, diabetes, arthritis and mental illness.
Selenium: Major antioxidant nutrient, protects cell membranes and prevents free radical generation thereby decreasing the risk of cancer, heart and blood diseases. Preserves tissue elasticity; slows down the aging and hardening of tissues.
Potassium: Helps regulate heart function and blood pressure, as well as improve your sensory perception. Forms complex with calcium to promote proper bone and tooth mineralization. You can find it in raisins, figs, bananas, citrus fruits, avocados and leafy green vegetables.
Magnesium: Activates over 300 enzymes. Helps maintain stable levels of calcium and phosphorus in the bone. Magnesium is very important. It helps regulate the nervous system and temperature and support your immune system and digestive system. Inadequate levels of magnesium can lead to irregular heartbeat, muscle cramps and even death, if low enough. Many people do not get enough it. It can be found in seafood, green vegetables, nuts and fruit.
Manganese: Involved in the amino acid and energy metabolism. Can take the place of magnesium in some enzyme systems
Phosphorus: Now we're getting into the "not as well known" minerals. Phosphorus is important for proper brain function and sensory perception. It is also a cofactor for chemicals that help create strong bones. You can find it in seeds, kelp and certain dairy products.
Manganese: Helps support the immune system. It can be found in blueberries, avocados, eggs and green tea. One a side note is if you are a welder, you might want to watch out because you could be receiving dangerously high levels of manganese...but luckily, most of us are not welders and this is not an issue.
Copper: An important part of enzymes that maintain the integrity of the bone, blood vessels, and lung cells; mobilizes iron. It can help create hemoglobin, synthesize neurotransmitters, support the immune system and build tissue. It can be found in beef, seafood, seeds and nuts.
Iodine: Iodine is very important. Luckily most salt is iodized to help people get enough of this important mineral. Principal component of Thyroid-Gland hormones, which control overall body metabolism, it helps regulate the thyroid, a very important organ. A lack of iodine can lead to fatigue, weird unpredictable energy levels, weight gain, dry skin and a whole heap of other symptoms. You can find it in kelp, fresh vegetables and seafood.
Selenium: Selenium is absolutely necessary for proper immune system functioning. Cell membranes would not function properly either. It is also an antioxidant. Many people do not get enough selenium, but it can be found in broccoli, onions, seeds and garlic.
Chromium: Works in conjunction with insulin to maintain normal blood sugar metabolism. Yes, chromium...weren't expecting that were you? A low level of this mineral might put you at a higher risk for developing diabetes. You can find it in organic vegetables, but it is also something that you might want to consider supplementing.
Molybdenum: I'm sure we've all heard of molybdenum;. This is used for a rather specific function, in an enzyme that is important for kidney health. It can be found in many beans, black-eyed peas and tree nuts.
