Vitaminity B-Mineral Complex

food supplement based on several mineral trace elements and all group B vitamins contained in one balanced high-dose formulation.

Particularly recommended for chronic tirednessphysical/mental fatigue, for strengthening the immune system and promoting skin/hair wellness.

Trace elements are minerals and metals which are found in very small amounts in body tissues and are necessary for all metabolic processes: they trigger, and are involved in, all cellular functions, acting as catalysts in a variety of fields.

Group B vitamins play a key role in body metabolism: they are commonly called energy vitamins, because they allow food to be properly metabolized, and thus energy to be provided. Since they are not synthesized by the human body, they need to be introduced through a balanced diet or food supplementation.

ACTIVE INGREDIENTS

Magnesium
This element is required for countless key metabolic processes, including the metabolism of calcium and group B, C and E vitamins. In addition, it is essential for promoting proper functioning of the nervous system and correct heart function. It is involved in balancing the pH of the body as well as in coagulation.

Iron
This metal is essential for the synthesis of haemoglobin, myoglobin, in collagen formation and in several metabolic processes.

Haemoglobin is a protein found in red blood cells that helps carry oxygen to tissues.

Myoglobin is a protein that helps carry/exchange oxygen in muscle tissue.

In addition, iron is an important component of antioxidant enzymes, such as catalase and peroxidase, which protect the body from oxidazing hydrogen peroxide.

Women have, on average, lower iron levels than men (35 mg/kg vs. 50 mg/kg). In addition, for physiological reasons, women are at a much higher risk of anaemia and sideropenia due to blood losses than men.

Zinc
This metal is involved in regulating insulin production, and thus in glucidic metabolism, the proper functioning of the immune system and cellular growth/renewal.

In addition, it plays a vital role in keeping the skin and its appendages (hair, nails) healthy.

It is also known for its anti-inflammatory action though prostaglandin inhibition.

Potassium
This element is the main cation of intracellular fluid and an antagonist balanced with sodium. Like sodium, it helps to maintain a normal water balance, nerve and muscle contraction, heart rate and blood pressure (it is used for the treatment of hypertension, which is caused by too high sodium/salt intake). It is important in maintaining proper alkalinity, and thus in preventing acidosis.

Selenium
This element is a component of glutathione-peroxidase, an enzyme which helps protect cells from hydrogen peroxide oxidation and hyperperoxides. In addition, it helps activate thyroid hormone T3, from its precursor, T4. It protects the structure of cellular and intracellular membranes, promoting cellular respiration. Selenium works synergistically with vitamin E. A lack of selenium leads to premature ageing, with such manifestations as myocardiopathy and myocardial micronecrosis.

Manganese
This mineral is needed for normal bone structure and is part of several enzymes, including arginase, SOD (superoxide dismutase, glutamine synthetase). It plays an active role in reproduction and growth and is involved in fat synthesis; in addition, it seems to help form haemoglobin and strengthen antiallergic reactions. Manganese deficiency causes degeneration of the gonads (testicles, ovaries), nerve system injuries, arthritis and asthenia.

Copper
This element is part of several important enzymes, including ceruloplasmin, cytochrome C oxidase, catalase, tyrosinase,  monoamine oxidases). It plays a major role in iron absorption and haemoglobin formation; furthermore, it works synergistically with vitamin C in elastin synthesis. As far as the skin and hair are concerned, it plays an active role in melanin synthesis and keratinization. Furthermore, an increased copper content in blood plasma is indicative of an adaptive response to the various forms of stress. As it is antagonized by zinc (see above), although proper intake can be achieved through a varied diet, it often needs to be taken in proper amounts through supplements that contain zinc.

Biotin
Initially known as vitamin H or I, and later identified as vitamin B7 in the Anglo-Saxon nomenclature, and B8 (biotin) in the French nomenclature respectively, biotin takes part in all the processes that involve carbon dioxide fixation, and thus in all decarboxylation reactions, including the conversion of pyruvic acid to oxaloacetic acid, which is key to the Krebs cycle, and of acetyl-CoA, which is essential for fatty acid biosynthesis in cytoplasm and the metabolization of fatty acids with an odd number of carbon atoms. Hence it stimulates glycogen production, thereby improving the trophism of the hair, skin, sweat glands and nerve tissue.

Vitamin B3
(niacin or niacinamide) – When this vitamin was discovered (in 1937), it was referred to as vitamin PP (Pellagra Preventive), because this severe disease was caused by a lack of it. It is part of the enzymes NAD and NADP, which are essential for oxidoreduction reactions for the production of energy in amino acid and lipid metabolism. A lack of vitamin B3 causes pellagra, an affection of the skin (characterized by dryness, redness, scaling and shredding of the skin, and accompanied with gastrointestinal disturbance and nervous symptoms.

Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid)

The primary role of this vitamin is the formation of coenzyme A, which is essential for cellular respiration and fatty acid and keto acid synthesis. In the form of succinyl-CoA, it is key to the Krebs cycle, thereby optimizing cellular respiration and metabolism. In addition, it has a primary role in steroid and fatty acid synthesis. A lack of Vitamin B5 causes fatigue, insomnia, cramps.

Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine)

This vitamin was discovered as an additional pellagra preventing factor (see Vitamin B3). It is found in three different forms (Pyridoxine, Pyridoxal, Pyridoxamine), the active form being pyridoxal phosphate, to which all forms are converted from pyridoxal kinase, an enzyme found in all tissues. Pyridoxal phosphate and the analogous coenzyme pyridoxamine phosphate are active in fat and protein metabolism through transamination processes. Vitamin B6 helps maintain the health of the central nervous system, as it is critical in the production of serotonin, dopamine, histamine, taurine, gamma-aminobutyric acid. In addition, it is involved in haemoglobin synthesis and acts as a steroid modulator which promotes growth hormone (GH) synthesis. Finally, it is important for glycogen production.

Vitamin B2 (riboflavin)

This vitamin is the constituent of two nucleotide enzymes, namely flavin nucleotide and adenine dinucleotide, which have a key role in the energy metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids and amino acids; therefore, it is considered an essential nutrient for all tissues, and especially for the skin and its appendages.

Vitamin B1 (thiamine)

This vitamin has a primary role in the metabolism of carbohydrates, and thus of glucose, thereby promoting the synthesis of ribose, a glucide needed

HOW TO USE
