These B vitamins, often referred to as B complex vitamins, also help the body metabolize fats and protein. B complex vitamins are necessary for healthy skin, hair, eyes, and liver and help the nervous system function. It helps with chronic fatigue, allergies, asthma, immune support, & depression.
Calcium: The body utilizes calcium to maintain strong bones and to carry out many important functions. Almost all calcium is stored in bones and teeth, where it supports their structure and hardness. The body also needs calcium for muscles to move and for nerves to carry messages between the brain and every body part. Calcium can help with muscle cramping, twitching, rashes, insect bites, & overall bone health.
Copper: Copper is an essential trace mineral which is found in all body tissues and plays a key role in the formation of red blood cells, maintaining nerve cells and the immune system. Sufficient copper helps prevent cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis. It also helps the body form collagen, absorb iron and plays a role in energy production.
Chromium: Chromium is known to enhance the action of insulin, a hormone critical to the metabolism and storage of carbohydrate, fat and protein in the body. It can be used to help treat diabetes, Increases HDL, lowers LDL and decreases total cholesterol, promote weight loss and improve overall body composition.
Vitamin D3 (IM injection): Known affectionately as the “Sunshine Vitamin”, roughly 70-80% of the population suffers from vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D3, or cholecalciferol, is one of two major forms of vitamin D. D3 has a positive impact on heart health, happiness levels, bone health, blood sugar levels, the immune system, cancer prevention, memory, cholesterol, mineral absorption (calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium), and general longevity.
Glutathione: Glutathione, sometimes called “The Mother of Antioxidants”, is an antioxidant, antiviral and an effective detoxifier. It assists in preventing damage to the body caused by free radicals and peroxides. The buildup of free radicals over time is largely responsible for the aging process. Free radicals may play a role in cancer, heart disease, and conditions like arthritis. Glutathione is involved in many processes in the body, including tissue building and repair, making chemicals and proteins needed in the body, and for immune system support.
Magnesium: Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system, and keeps bones strong. Magnesium also helps regulate blood sugar levels, promotes normal blood pressure, and is known to be involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis. It helps with muscle cramps, migraines, asthma, fibromyalgia, & chronic fatigue.
Manganese: Manganese helps the body form connective tissue, bones, blood clotting factors, and sex hormones. It also plays a role in fat and carbohydrate metabolism, calcium absorption, and blood sugar regulation. Manganese is also necessary for normal brain and nerve function. Manganese can help with arthritis, connective tissue damage, and fractures.
Selenium: Selenium is a powerful antioxidant which is known to reduce DNA damage and oxidative stress, boost the immune system and destroy cancer cells. It has been shown to protect against heart disease, prevent mental decline, boost thyroid health, and reduce asthma symptoms.
Zinc: Zinc is a trace element that is necessary for a healthy immune system and is involved in numerous aspects of cellular metabolism. It is also used for treating diarrhea, the common cold, assisting in wound healing, improving learning and memory, decreasing risk of age-related chronic disease, preventing macular degeneration, and increasing male fertility. A daily intake of zinc is required to maintain a steady state because the body has no specialized zinc storage system.
L-Arginine: Arginine is converted within the body to a powerful neurotransmitter, nitric oxide. Nitric oxide causes blood vessels to relax and improves overall circulation. Arginine is known for its cardiovascular benefits, it stimulates the release of growth hormone, improves symptoms of erectile dysfunction, promotes wound healing and helps the kidneys remove waste from the body.
L-Carnitine: Carnitine plays a crucial role in burning fat cells to create usable energy, which is why it is often used for its weight loss benefits. L-Carnitine assists in fat loss and more energy, increased athletic performance, and speeds recovery from intense exercise and helps prevent cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and chronic inflammation. To maximize the benefits of Carnitine is should be taken with plenty of Vitamin C.
L-Glutamine: L-glutamine has many functions in the body, including protein synthesis. It is used by the body to protect the immune and digestive systems, especially during times of stress. It is a critical fuel source for white blood cells and certain intestinal cells making it an effective amino acid for treating Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and irritable bowel disease. It helps to enhance exercise performance, helps with anxiety, depression, and insomnia.
L-Lysine: L-Lysine is an essential amino acid that your body doesn’t naturally produce. However, it is needed to support your immune system, improve athletic performance and can help with conditions like high blood pressure, anxiety and diabetes. Lysine also increases your body’s ability to absorb calcium. It is important for proper growth, and it plays an essential role in converting fatty acids into energy and helping to lower cholesterol. Lysine also plays an important role in the formation of collagen -important for bones and connective tissues including skin, tendon, and cartilage.
L-Proline: Proline is an important compound responsible for tissue repair, collagen formation, arteriosclerosis prevention and blood pressure maintenance. The collagen formation greatly aids in healthy skin production and decreases wrinkling. It is also beneficial for the treatment of conditions such as osteoarthritis, soft tissue sprains and chronic back pain.
L-Taurine: Taurine has been shown to assist in longevity by promoting cardiovascular health, insulin sensitivity, electrolyte balance, hearing function and immune modulation. Its benefits are so broad and extensive that scientists have described Taurine as a “wonder molecule.” Taurine has weight loss and cholesterol lowering capabilities, it promotes glucose control, reverses cardiovascular disease, provides retina protection, and even is used to treat liver disease.
Glucosamine: Glucosamine is a natural chemical compound in the body. Some studies have shown that it gives relief for mild to moderate knee osteoarthritis, and it may work for other joints, as well. Glucosamine helps keep the cartilage which cushions bones at your joints healthy. As you get older, your levels of this compound begin to drop, which leads to the gradual breakdown of joints.
N-Acetylcysteine (NAC): N-Acetylcysteine is a compound that is found naturally in the body. It is converted to and boosts natural production of glutathione, which in turn plays a role in the detoxification of free radicals in the body, including the break down of acetaldehyde, a byproduct of alcohol consumption attributed to liver damage.
Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA): A potent antioxidant, Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is found and has important functions in all cells in the body, including both water based and fatty tissue. It assists in skin repair, nerve damage repair, and aids in recovery from intense athletic exertion.
