THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE INGREDIENTS
Vitamin C is an essential vitamin, meaning it can’t be produced by your body. It has many impressive health benefits and low vitamin C levels have been linked to poor health outcomes (an example is people suffering with pneumonia tend to have lower vitamin C levels). Supplementing your diet with Vitamin C has been shown to boost your immune system and shorten the recovery time.
- Vitamin C boosts immunity by increasing the production of white blood cells which help protect the body against infection. It also helps these white blood cells function more effectively and protects them from damage.
- It is also vital in protecting your skin’s defence system helping wounds heal faster.
- As a powerful antioxidant it also boosts the immune system by raising blood antioxidant levels which fight the damage cause by free radicals. This helps the body’s natural defences against inflammation.
- May help reduce the risk of chronic disease such as heart disease.
- Studies have shown that vitamin C may help lower blood pressure.
- May reduce blood uric acid levels and help prevent gout attacks.
Ashwagandha is the most commonly used and extensively researched adaptogen herb. It has been used effectively for over 3000 years in traditional Indian Ayurvedic medicine.
- Lowers stress by regulating cortisol, thereby protecting the immune system from being run down by high stress levels.
- Boosts the immune system by ensuring the two different types of white blood cells, (called TH1 and TH2) stay balanced.
- Is a powerful antioxidant to fight free radicals to prevent cell damage and anti-aging.
- Supports healthy thyroid function & helps regulate blood sugar levels.
- Neuroprotective offering a preventative effect against neurological decline.
Vitamin D is sometimes called the “sunshine vitamin” because it’s produced in your skin in response to sunlight. Vitamin D has several important functions. Perhaps the most vital are facilitating a healthy immune function regulating the absorption of phosphorus and calcium.
Vitamin D deficiencies:
In recent years, doctors have begun to pay more attention to the very real issue of vitamin D deficiency and the problems it can cause. Some of the more common include:
- severe pain in bones, sometimes leading to stress fractures.
- a leading cause of developing osteoporosis
- muscle aches and overall weakness
- fatigue and general feeling of malaise
Strong bones are a result of good vitamin D3 intake because it helps regulate and control the body’s ability to absorb phosphorus and calcium—two compounds that provide density and strength to the skeletal system and teeth.
Vitamin D3 stimulates the pancreas and triggers the process to make insulin. This is key for managing blood sugar levels more effectively and can help diabetics better control the disease.
Lower Blood Pressure:
A study from Boston University found that those with high blood pressure experienced a drop in numbers when vitamin D levels were increased. D3 actively reduces the concentration of renin, an enzyme secreted by the kidney that has an affect on blood vessels.
Heart function can also be impacted by the presence of vitamin D. In two studies, low levels of vitamin D were correlated to an increased likelihood of a heart attack. Though there isn’t a clear reason why, some researchers believe that vitamin D acts as a “heart tranquilizer,” improving cardiovascular endurance and keeping heart muscle cells from growing too large. This in turn prevents thickening of the walls of the ventricles, which can block blood flow and cause a heart attack.
One of the most significant benefits to vitamin D3 though is its impact on mood. Many people suffer from seasonal affective disorder and generally feel happier when the sun is shining because of the synthesis of the vitamin that happens with direct exposure to UVB rays. Increasing levels of vitamin D is not only a pick-me-up but could effectively help to reduce the symptoms of clinical depression. Other treatments may be needed as well, but first ensuring proper absorption of the vitamin is critical.
Vitamin K2 activates proteins that play a role in blood clotting, calcium metabolism and heart health. One of its most important functions is to regulate calcium deposition. In other words, it promotes the calcification of bones and prevents the calcification of blood vessels and kidneys. Vitamin K2 is mainly found in certain animal and fermented foods, which most people don't eat much of. The daily average consumption of this important nutrient is incredibly low in the modern diet.
Help Prevent Heart Disease:Calcium build-up in the arteries around your heart is a huge risk factor for heart disease. Vitamin K is believed to help by preventing calcium from being deposited in your arteries thus preventing heart disease.
Improves Bone Health:
Vitamin K2 plays an essential role in bone metabolism, and studies suggest that it can help prevent osteoporosis and fractures.
Help Fight Cancer:
K2 has been found to improve survival in patients with liver cancer. Men who consume the highest amounts of K2 appear to have a lower risk of advanced prostate cancer.
The benefits of supplementing with K2 may be enhanced even further when combined with a vitamin D supplement, as these two vitamins have synergistic effects.
How Vitamin D3 and K2 work together:
Vitamin D3 and vitamin K2 ensure that calcium is absorbed easily and reaches the bone mass, while preventing arterial calcification, helping to keep your heart and bones healthy.
Zinc is a trace element that is necessary for a healthy immune system. A lack of zinc can make a person more susceptible to disease and illness. According to European Journal of Immunology the human body needs zinc to activate T lymphocytes (T cells) these help the body by controlling and regulating immune responses and attacking infected cells.
- Boosts the immune system by primarily activating enzymes that break down proteins in viruses and bacteria, so they are less able to spread
- Strengthens the immune system by increasing the activation of cells responsible for fighting infection.
Zinc deficiency can severely impair immune systems function.
Zinc has been shown to be effective in treating the common cold by shortening duration and severity of symptoms. It has also been shown to decreased risk of age-related chronic disease.
A study from researchers at Oregon State University have found that improving zinc status through diet and supplementation may reduce the risk of inflammatory diseases. Deficiency has been linked to increased inflammation in chronic disease and triggering new inflammatory processes
Selenium is an essential mineral, meaning it must be obtained through your diet. It plays a major role in important processes in your body, including your metabolism and thyroid function so it is vital to ensure you are getting enough selenium if you are wanting to stay healthy.
Studies have demonstrated that increased blood levels of selenium are associated with enhanced immune response. This antioxidant helps lower oxidative stress in your body, which reduces inflammation and enhances immunity.
Selenium is a powerful antioxidant that fights oxidative stress and helps defend your body from chronic conditions, such as heart disease and cancer. It may protect against heart disease as low selenium levels have been linked to an increased risk of heart disease.
Help prevent cognitive decline:
Several studies have shown that patients with Alzheimer’s disease have lower blood levels of selenium. Additional studies have found that antioxidants in both foods and supplements may improve memory in patients with Alzheimer’s
Support healthy thyroid function
Thyroid tissue contains a higher amount of selenium than any other organ in the human body. This powerful mineral helps protect the thyroid against oxidative damage.
Vitamin B6, (also known as pyridoxine) is a water-soluble vitamin that your body cannot produce so you must obtain it from foods or supplements. Adequate levels of Vitamin B6 are essential for optimal health as it plays a part in over 100 enzyme reactions. Vitamin B6 plays an essential role in metabolism and in the creation of red blood cells and neurotransmitters.
May improve mood and reduce symptoms of despondency and anxiousness. Vitamin B6 plays an important role in mood regulation partly because this vitamin is necessary for creating neurotransmitters that regulate emotions, including serotonin, dopamine and GABA.
Promotes brain health and may reduce Alzheimer’s Risk.
May prevent and treat Anaemia by aiding Haemoglobin production. Low levels of Vitamin B6 can lead to low haemoglobin and anaemia, so supplementing with this vitamin may prevent or treat these issues.
May prevent clogged arteries and reduce heart disease risk. Vitamin B6 may help reduce high homocysteine levels that lead to narrowing of arteries. Therefore, it may minimize heart disease risk
