Vitamins and minerals are involved in many biochemical processes in the body and as such have a part to play in the health of nearly every organ in the body.
Siberian ginseng has been shown to improve physical and mental responses particularly where there is fatigue and low energy. It can help to restore and strengthen the immune response.
Iodine is important for the normal functioning of the thyroid gland as it is an essential nutrient required for the synthesis of thyroid hormones. Thyroid hormones affect almost every cell in the body and regulate oxygen use, metabolic rate and cellular metabolism.
Chromium, an essential nutrient for sugar metabolism, works closely with insulin to facilitate the uptake of glucose into cells. Physical activity and a diet high in refined sugars can increase the loss of chromium from the body.
The B group vitamins play an essential role in the metabolic processes of all living cells by serving as coenzymes in the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and fats to produce energy. Also, the normal function and maintenance of the nervous system relies on the presence of the B group vitamins for the production of hormones and neurotransmitters.
The nutrients betacarotene, vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc, manganese, copper and selenium have antioxidant properties that may reduce the risk of cell damage attributed to free radicals.
Iron is essential for oxygen transport, for energy production and for a healthy immune system.
Vitamin D is important for building and maintaining healthy bone mass, and in maintaining bone density.
Milk thistle supports normal liver function and has a protective effect on cell membranes due to its strong antioxidant and free radical scavenging action. Traditionally used as a detoxifying agent, it supports regeneration of liver cells and protects against potentially harmful substances such as alcohol.
