Vitamin A (as retinyl palmitate). This nutrient is crucial for the thin, delicate cell layers that line the body's inner passages. Such epithelia line the intestinal tract, lungs, and sinuses, and are the first line of defense against infection or chemical toxins. Vitamin A also facilitates the body's capacity to produce antibodies and new immune cells that support our immune defenses. This formulation omits beta-carotene since it is not readily converted to vitamin A.
Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid). Besides being a potent antioxidant this nutrient is an essential cofactor for a variety of enzymes that make chemical transmitters in the brain, neutralize toxins in the liver and help synthesize large molecules of collagen to make connective tissues. Vitamin C is also fundamental to healthy immunity. As a versatile antitoxin it helps the body conserve glutathione, vitamin E, and other protective nutrients.
Vitamin D (as D3, cholecalciferol). The skin can make this vitamin, but most people do not get enough sun exposure to make optimal quantities of it. The body converts vitamin D3, its most potent form, into a hormone-like nutrient that is essential for cardiovascular health, immunity, and optimal functioning of virtually all the organ systems. Bone strength and resistance to fracture are highly dependent on healthy vitamin D status. This formulation supplies the full Daily Value of vitamin D in one capsule.
Vitamin K (as K2, menaquinone-7 or MK-7). Beyond its long-established importance for healthy blood coagulation, this vitamin is crucial for healthy calcium metabolism. It is required to move calcium into bone and thereby make it less available to form unhealthy deposits in the heart, blood vessels or kidneys. It is also involved in the generation of energy by the mitochondria within our cells. Vitamin K2 is far more potent than Kl, and menaquinone-7 (MK-7) has the highest measured K2 activity.
Thiamin. This vitamin (formerly called "vitamin B 1") is essential for the cells to make energy and to metabolize amino acids and carbohydrates (including blood glucose). Having adequate thiamin is especially important for managing the
modem high-carbohydrate diet, so that deficiency of this vitamin is now associated not just with the classic "beri-beri" condition but also with so-called "high-calorie malnutrition".
Riboflavin. This vitamin (formerly "vitamin B2") is essential for our cells to make DNA, the substance of our genes. It is also an essential cofactor for many enzymes that make energy, including in the mitochondria of our cells. Riboflavin is also essential for an enzyme that helps conserve glutathione, the master antioxidant within our cells. Further, riboflavin supports enzymes that recycle essential folate and activate vitamin B6.
Niacinamide. This is a metabolically active form of niacin ("vitamin B3") that does not have niacin's troublesome skin flushing effect. Niacinamide is readily converted to various enzyme co factors that are essential for energy generation and utilization. Its deficiency is linked to fatigue and other conditions of pellagra, and it is readily depleted by excessive alcohol intake or by smoking, suggesting that daily supplementation is imperative.
Vitamin B6. This vitamin is essential for at least 100 enzymes that are involved with the metabolism of amino acids, fatty acids, and carbohydrates. It is vital for the early development of the brain and for the actions of various nerve transmitters. This formulation includes pyrixodoxal-5' -phosphate, the most active form of vitamin B6 in human cells.
Vitamin E (as natural mixed tocopherols). This nutrient is the major antioxidant located within cell membranes, where it protects the fatty acids, phospholipids, enzymes, and other membrane molecules such as coenzyme Q 1 0 ("CoQ") from damage by reactive "free radicals" or other toxic agents. This formulation provides approximately equal amounts of alpha-tocopherol and gamma-tocopherol, the two vitamin E forms most commonly found in human cells.
Lutein. This is a carotenoid nutrient that helps protect the retinal tissue of the eye against free radicals generated from light entering the eye. Though not technically proven a vitamin, clinical research suggests lutein to be very important for healthy vision.
Other nutrients in this formulation include potassium, an important electrolyte; boron, which supports calcium and magnesium metabolism; and silicon, which supports connective tissue and bone integrity.
