Folic acid is required to produce red blood cells and in new cell synthesis in tissue repair. Vitamin B9 is also said to increase the appetite and stimulate the production of hydrochloric acid in the digestive system. Folic acid and its derivatives are important to the formation of new cells and hence to the growth and development of human embryo. Folic acid is passed on to the newborn baby via a mother?s breast milk.
Vitamin C has many beneficial properties and various issues can arise from lack of this vitamin. An increased daily intake is needed for smokers, people on contraceptive pills or living in hot or very cold environments. Over time lack of Vitamin C can lead to anemia, mouth ulceration and induration of leg muscles. Vitamin C improves resistance to infections. It improves the function of white blood cells which consume and destroy viruses and increases the levels of antibodies found in the blood which tack viruses.
Vitamins B1 (thiamin), B2 (riboflavin) and B3 (niacin) are part of the vitamin B complex. Unlike vitamins B1 and B2, niacin can be produced in the body from the essential amino acid tryptophan. Vitamin B1 promotes normal metabolism, appetite, digestion and growth in the body. Thiamin also improves the functioning of T-cells and is required for normal development and functioning of the brain. The presence of riboflavin in our formula ensures that the food eaten is broken down efficiently and the maximum energy is obtained from it. Niacin has many beneficial actions and its essential to food metabolism and the breakdown of glucose in the Krebs cycle. This vitamin may be beneficial in preventing heart disease by removing LDL cholesterol from the blood.
Iron is a metallic element essential to life and many biological processes. Iron is needed for the production of red blood corpuscles and to transport oxygen around the body, and it also allows many enzymes to function well. Ferrous sulfate is essential for the metabolism of all the B vitamins. An iron supplement is normally required for pregnant women and anemic people. Calcium is an important mineral that plays an essential role in supporting bone and teeth health. Main systems of our body as heart, nerves and blood-clotting require calcium to function properly. Zinc helps proper growth of human body and is involved in crucial biological activities like protein production, DNA formation and cell reproduction. Vitamin D3 helps to efficiently absorb calcium. Iodine is essential for the normal prenatal development of the baby.
