Vitamin A & beta carotene – Fat-soluble nutrient important in immune function; in the formation of bones, teeth and skin; and in maintenance of the outer layer of many tissues and organs. Promotes growth, vitality, and eye health and night vision. Needed during pregnancy and lactation. Good for the growth of body tissues and for healthy hair. The liver uses the antioxidant beta carotene to produce vitamin A, which is stored in the liver and used as needed. Due to beta carotene’s non-toxic nature, it is the preferred source for vitamin A.
Biotin – Needed for fatty acid biosynthesis and for the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Necessary for healthy skin.
Choline – B-complex nutrient important to the metabolism and transport of fats and cholesterol. Involved in normal nerve transmission, gall bladder regulation and lecithin formation. Necessary for the hair and thymus gland.
Folic acid – Necessary for growth, cell division and the formation of red blood cells. Helps with reproduction and growth. Necessary for the health of the glands and liver.
Inositol – Important for hair growth, the metabolism of fats and cholesterol, and for the formation of lecithin.
Iodine – An essential part of the thyroid hormones thyroxine and triiodothyronine. Required for normal growth and development and for maintenance of the metabolic rate.
Niacin – B-complex nutrient that promotes growth and proper functioning of the nervous system. Participates in maintaining healthy skin and digestive system. Aids in metabolism of fats, carbohydrates and proteins.
Pantothenic acid – Stimulates growth and contributes to energy functions. Necessary for healthy adrenal glands and skin.
B COMPLEX VITAMINS– Supports nervous system function, energy production and a variety of other body processes: Thiamin is necessary for healthy mouth, skin and eyes. Needed for carbohydrate metabolism and is essential for nerve tissues, muscles, digestion and for the normal functioning of the heart; Riboflavin is important in the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates and proteins. Aids in the formation of red blood cells and antibodies, and is good for healthy eyes, hair, skin and nails; B6 is necessary for the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates and proteins. Necessary for healthy skin, nerves and muscles. Aids in antibody formation and digestion; and, B12 helps form normal red blood cells and a healthy nervous system. Helps the body metabolize fats, carbohydrates and proteins more effectively.
Vitamin C – Has multiple uses: increases iron absorption; essential for collagen production and the immune system. Needed for healthy teeth, gums and bones. Strengthens blood vessels.
Vitamin D – Vital in infancy and childhood because it functions in the assimilation of calcium, which is essential in healthy bone formation at all ages. Essential for parathyroid glands and teeth, and for normal mineralization of bone and cartilage.
Vitamin E – Protects fat-soluble vitamins and red blood cells. Maintains healthy nerves and muscles while strengthening capillary walls. Essential for hair, skin and mucous membranes.
Essential fatty acids (unsaturated fatty acids) – A component of lipids – dietary fats used as a primary source of fuel by the body. Needed to form cell structures, particularly cell membranes, and for proper absorption of fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E and K). Necessary for the normal function of all tissues; deficiency can result in numerous problematic symptoms. Play an essential role in normal brain development and function, and in the regulation and function of the immune system.
