Vitamin C - Ascorbic Acid: Vitamin C is needed for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of your body. It is used to: Make skin, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels -Heal wounds and form scar tissue -Repair and maintain cartilage, bones, and teeth. Vitamin C is one of many antioxidants. Antioxidants are nutrients that block some of the damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are made when your body breaks down food or when you are exposed to tobacco smoke or radiation. 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.
Why you need it: The body is not able to make vitamin C on its own, and it does not store vitamin C. It plays an imperative role in fighting viruses, bacteria, and overall immune support.
B-12 - Methylcobalamine: Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin with a key role in the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system, and for the formation of blood. It is one of the eight B vitamins.
Why you need it: The body is not able to make B12 on its own; many foods are a natural source of B12. It can help with allergies, asthma, sciatica, fatigue, depression, & insomnia.
B-Complex: B1 (Thiamine), B2 (Riboflavin), B3 (Niacin), B5 (Dexapenthanol), B6 (Pyridoxine), B7 (Biotin), B9 (Folate) All B vitamins help the body to convert food (carbohydrates) into fuel (glucose), which is "burned" to produce energy. 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.
Why you need it: Helps with chronic fatigue, allergies, asthma, immune support, & depression.
Calcium: The body needs 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.
Why you need it: Used for muscle cramping, twitching, rashes, insect bites, & bone health.
Copper: The body stores copper mostly in the bones and muscles. The liver regulates the amount of copper in the blood.
Why you need it: Improving wound healing, and treating osteoarthritis and osteoporosis.
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.
Why you need it: Increases HDL, lowers LDL and decreases total cholesterol.
Glutathione: Glutathione is an antioxidant, preventing damage to the body caused by free radicals and peroxides. Glutathione is involved in many processes in the body, including tissue building and repair, making chemicals and proteins needed in the body, and for the immune system.
Why you need it: Detox, Antioxidant, Antiviral.
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.
Why you need it: Helps with muscle cramps, migraines, asthma, fibromyalgia, & chronic fatigue.
Manganese: Manganese is found mostly in bones, the liver, kidneys, and pancreas. 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.
Why you need it: Manganese can help with arthritis, connective tissue damage, and fractures.
Selenium: Selenium is essential to good health but required only in small amounts. Selenium’s antioxidant properties help prevent cellular damage from free radicals.
Why you need it: Cancer preventative and immune support.
Vitamin D3 (IM injection): Vitamin D is found in small amounts in a few foods, including fatty fish such as herring, mackerel, sardines, and tuna. It helps the body regulate the absorption of minerals such as phosphorous, magnesium and calcium. It also helps boost the immune system and helps prevent autoimmune diseases, as well as cancer.
Why you need it: Bone health, Immune system, regulate mineral absorption.
Zinc: Zinc is involved in numerous aspects of cellular metabolism. It plays a role in immune function, protein synthesis, wound healing, DNA synthesis, and cell division. A daily intake of zinc is required to maintain a steady state because the body has no specialized zinc storage system.
Why you need it: Immune support, wound healing, ulcers, herpes, diabetes, low sperm count.
L-Arginine: Arginine is converted in the body into nitric oxide. Nitric oxide causes blood vessels to open wider for improved blood flow.
Why you need it: Stimulates the release of growth hormone, insulin, and other substances in the body.
L-Carnitine: Carnitine is a substance that helps the body turn fat into energy. Your body makes it in the liver and kidneys and stores it in the skeletal muscles, heart, brain, and sperm. Usually, your body can make all the carnitine it needs. Some people, however, may not have enough carnitine because their bodies cannot make enough or can’t transport it into tissues so it can be used.
Why you need it: L-Carnitine results in fat loss and more energy, increased athletic performance, and speeds recovery from intense exercise and helps prevent cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and chronic inflammation.
L-Glutamine: L-glutamine has many functions in the body, including protein synthesis. It is also essential to proper function of the immune system and plays a role in brain function and digestion.
Why you need it: Enhance exercise performance, helps with anxiety, Crohn's disease, depression, insomnia, ulcerative colitis.
L-Lysine: Lysine, or L-lysine, is an essential amino acid. That means it is necessary for human health, but the body can't manufacture it. Lysine is important for proper growth, and it plays an essential role in converting fatty acids into energy and helping to lower cholesterol.
Why you need it: Helps the body absorb calcium, and it plays an important role in the formation of collagen -important for bones and connective tissues including skin, tendon, and cartilage.
L-Proline: L-Proline is an essential component of collagen and is important for proper functioning of joints and tendons.
Why you need it: Collagen and cartilage growth, keeps muscles and joints flexible, reduce sagging/wrinkling and skin aging.
L-Taurine: Taurine is a major constituent of bile and can be found in the large intestine.
Why you need it: Helps regulate the nervous system and muscles and maintain a healthy brain and heart.
Glucosamine: Glucosamine is a natural chemical compound in your body. Some studies show it gives relief for mild to moderate knee osteoarthritis, and it may work for other joints, too. The glucosamine in your body helps keep up the health of your cartilage which cushions bones at your joints. As you get older, your levels of this compound begin to drop, which leads to the gradual breakdown of joints.
Why you need it: Joint health
