Vitamin-Mineral Antioxidant Ingredients
Vitamin A (as natural beta-carotene)
Beta-carotene (β-carotene) is a precursor to vitamin A, an essential vitamin at any age, including for cellular health and vision. It is also a powerful antioxidant that may reduce the risk of cancer. Beta-carotene is a precursor to vitamin A. It turns into vitamin A according to the body's needs.
Vitamin D (as Cholecalciferol)
Cholecalciferol is vitamin D3. Vitamin D helps your body absorb calcium. Cholecalciferol is used as a dietary supplement in people who do not get enough vitamin D in their diets to maintain adequate health. Cholecalciferol may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
Folate (as folic acid)
Folic acid works with vitamins B-6 and B-12 to control high levels of homocysteine in the blood. Elevated homocysteine levels might increase your risk of diseases of the heart and blood vessels (cardiovascular disease).
Biotin is a B vitamin found in food. It helps the body convert food into energy and plays many other important roles in health. Biotin boosts the health of the hair and nails, supports a healthy pregnancy, and helps manage blood sugar levels, among other benefits.
Calcium (as Calcium Chelate)
Your body needs calcium to build and maintain strong bones. Your heart, muscles and nerves also need calcium to function properly. Some studies suggest that calcium, along with vitamin D, may have benefits beyond bone health. It may be used to treat conditions caused by low calcium levels such as bone loss (osteoporosis), weak bones (osteomalacia/rickets), decreased activity of the parathyroid gland (hypoparathyroidism), and a certain muscle disease (latent tetany).
Iodine (from Kelp)
Kelp is a sea vegetable that is a concentrated source of minerals, including iodine, potassium, magnesium, calcium, and iron. Kelp as a source of iodine assists in making thyroid hormones, which are necessary for maintaining normal metabolism in all cells of the body.
Magnesium (as Magnesium Chelate)
Magnesium is a naturally occurring mineral. Magnesium is important for many systems in the body, especially the muscles and nerves. Chelated magnesium is in a form that is easily absorbed by the body. Chelated magnesium is used as a supplement to maintain adequate magnesium in the body.
Zinc (as Zinc Glycinate)
Bioflavonoids and zinc glycinate may reduce swelling and provide pain relief. Bioflavonoids and zinc glycinate is used in the dietary management of osteoarthritis symptoms, such as swelling, stiffness, and joint discomfort.
Restoring Vital Immunity
- Supports immune function.
- Supports vision – high concentrations of zinc found in the eyes.
- Promotes skin health and wound healing.
- Zinc deficiency can cause poor sense of taste & smell
Selenium (as Selenium Chelate)
Selenium is a nutrient that the body needs to stay healthy. Selenium is important for reproduction, thyroid gland function, DNA production and protecting the body from damage caused by free radicals and from infection. Selenium plays an important role in the health of your immune system. This antioxidant helps lower oxidative stress in your body, which reduces inflammation and enhances immunity. Studies have demonstrated that increased blood levels of selenium are associated with enhanced immune response.
Manganese (as Manganese Chelate)
Manganese is a trace mineral that is present in tiny amounts in the body. It is found mostly in bones, the liver, kidneys and pancreas. Manganese helps the body form connective tissue, bones, blood clotting factors and sex hormones.
Chromium (as Chromium Amino Acid Chelate)
Chromium picolinate is the form of chromium commonly found in dietary supplements. It may be effective at improving the body's response to insulin or lowering blood sugar in those with diabetes. What's more, it may help reduce hunger, cravings and binge eating.
Chromium -- specifically, trivalent chromium -- is an essential trace element that's used by some people as a supplement. Perhaps most importantly, chromium forms a compound in the body that seems to enhance the effects of insulin and lower glucose levels.
Molybdenum (as Molybdenum Chelate)
Molybdenum is an essential mineral found in high concentrations in legumes, grains and organ meats. It activates enzymes that help break down harmful sulfites and prevent toxins from building up in the body.
Potassium (as Potassium Chelate)
A normal level of potassium in the blood is important. Potassium helps your cells, kidneys, heart, muscles and nerves work properly.
Antioxidant blend (Grape seed and grape skin extract)
Grape seed extract may help with a type of poor circulation (chronic venous insufficiency) and high cholesterol. Grape seed extract also reduces swelling caused by injury and helps with eye disease related to diabetes. Many people are interested in grape seed extract because it contains antioxidants.
It is used to relieve dryness and irritation caused by reduced tear flow. It helps prevent damage to the eye in certain eye diseases. Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose may also be used to moisten hard contact lenses and artificial eyes.
The main dietary source of stearic acid is animal fat. The levels of stearic acid are usually low in plant fat, with the exception of coconut oil, cocoa butter and palm kernel oil. Stearic acid is considered a healthy saturated fat and does not appear to raise your risk of heart disease.
