Nutritional Information

 

Active Ingredients

Plant sterols have been shown to lower blood cholesterol. High cholesterol is a risk factor in the development of coronary heart disease Plant sterols makes up over 50% of this product for a very good reason... It works to reduce cholestrol if you take 4 capsules a day.

Biotin is a vital component of enzymes that allow you to use energy from fats and carbohydrates. It also supports the health of your skin, nervous system, metabolism and cells.*Biotin is also required for the function of an enzyme involved in fat production. As part of every cell membrane, fat helps separate the inner workings of cells from their environment. It is especially critical for cells that must be rapidly replaced, such as skin cells.

Choline is found in most animal tissues and contributes to normal lipid metabolism and the maintenance of normal liver function.

Manganese is an antioxidant and supports fat metabolism by protecting body lipids from oxidative damage. Manganese contributes to the normal formation of connective tissue and bones but also helps with normal energy metabolism.

Magnesium is a critical co-enzyme in over 300 functions in the body and contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. Magnesium is the fourth-most abundant mineral in the body. About 50% of magnesium is associated with bones, and the other half is divided among cells that make up your tissues and organs. Magnesium is needed for more than 300 reactions that take place on a constant basis. Magnesium is involved in making proteins and is crucial for energy production.

Niacin is a big shot when it comes to energy and metabolism.* It is essential for converting proteins, fats, and carbohydrates into fuel that cells can use. Niacin is also needed to make fatty acids, cholesterol, and other “macronutrients” .The vital components of DNA – the blueprint your cells use to replicate themselves – owe their existence to niacin. It’s also important for helping maintain healthy skin.

Pantothenic acid helps generate energy from carbohydrates, fats and protein. It is also involved in the production of cholesterol and hormones, as well as in the making of essential fats, which are vital for protecting the structure of nerve cells.

Riboflavin is involved in the metabolism of several B vitamins—a tight-knit group of compounds that work together to help the body function. Riboflavin promotes energy production at the cellular level and is critical for the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and protein. Riboflavin also works to protect your cells.

Selenium is required to manufacture important antioxidant compounds in the body that help cells function properly, support immune health, and prevent damage caused by free radicals — the rogue forms of oxygen that roam the bloodstream looking to play havoc with your cells.

Thiamine was the first of the B vitamins to be discovered and plays a leading role in many bodily functions. Thiamine is necessary for the proper functioning of the nervous system and muscles. It helps produce energy from the food you eat.

Vitamin C contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue as well as the normal function of the nervous and immune system. In addition, Vitamin C aids iron absorption. It also protects B vitamins from oxidation. Vitamin C is essential for immune health, as well as the repair and maintenance of muscles, skin, bones, and teeth. It’s one of several antioxidants in the body that deflect some of the damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are oxygen-based byproducts of normal metabolism, and are also formed when you’re exposed to toxins such as cigarette smoke (including secondhand), alcohol and air pollution.

Vitamin B1 (or Thiamine) plays a major role in energy metabolism in all cells, including cells of the cardiac system and therefore is needed to keep the heart working properly. Vitamin B1 also contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism, normal functioning of the nervous system but also general normal psychological function.

Vitamin B6 - Pyridoxine is needed to make the amino acids that help to form the basis of DNA, the blueprint for cell production. You also need it to produce immune system cells. Pyridoxine plays a major role in supporting the nervous system. The production of serotonin and norepinephrine – neurotransmitters that foster communication between nerve cells – is made possible by a compound that contains Vitamin B6.

Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin with a key role in the normal functioning of metabolism, as well as in the formation of blood. Vitamin B12 is naturally present only in animal products, where it’s bound to the protein in those foods. During digestion, the hydrochloric acid in your stomach releases B12 from food, allowing the body to absorb it. Inability to absorb vitamin B12 from the intestinal tract can be caused by a condition called pernicious anemia, resulting in a vitamin B12 shortfall. People who do not eat animal foods and who don’t consume the suggested amount of vitamin B12 from fortified foods and dietary supplements are also prone to vitamin B12 deficiency. As you age, the risk of inadequate vitamin B12 absorption rises.
