4. What are the ingredients and what are they good for?
||Per 2 softgels
|Vitamin D3 (as cholecalciferol)
- Vitamin D plays a crucial role in maintaining bone density and strength by aiding in the absorption of calcium and reducing the loss of calcium in the urine.
- Research shows that bone density is increased when Vitamin D supplements are taken in conjunction with calcium.
- A literature review found that Vitamin D deficiency is associated with muscle weakness and lower grip strength.
- Vitamin D is needed to help the body process sugar, and assists in other metabolic processes.
- Vitamin D plays a role in immunity and blood cell formation.
- Observational studies suggest that circulating vitamin D levels are associated with blood pressure and overall cardiovascular health. Some researchers believe that increasing vitamin D levels can help maintain normal blood pressure and promote arterial function.
|Vitamin B6 (as pyridoxine HCL, pyridoxine-5-phosphate)
- Vitamin B6 and the other B vitamins play a role in energy production, cardiovascular health and protein metabolism.
- Helps to promote normal homocysteine levels along with folic acid and vitamin B12.
- Vitamin B12 functions in the Krebs cycle by activating Coenzyme A, which is important in energy production.
- Vitamin B12 is required to maintain a healthy nervous system and regulate DNA replication and the formation of red blood cells.
- Helps promote normal homocysteine levels along with folic acid and vitamin B6.
- Vitamin B-12 also helps the body to better utilize glucose from carbohydrates to produce mitochondrial energy.
- Folic acid is involved with the proper synthesis of RNA and DNA, the nucleic acids that maintain our genetic codes and insure healthy cell division.
- It also plays a role in energy production and protein metabolism for the formation of red blood cells, and is essential for fetal nerve development.
- Folic acid accompanied by vitamins B-6 and B-12 has been found to be three times more effective at promoting normal homocysteine levels than folic acid alone.
- Folic acid has been shown to promote healthy homocysteine levels in healthy women.
- CoQ10 helps increase mitochondrial cellular energy, giving you more energy.
- Supports cardiovascular health by helping to promote normal blood pressure levels and heart function.
- May help support normal cholesterol levels.
- CoQ10 is also a powerful antioxidant that helps scavenge free radicals, and is especially beneficial for the heart, as this muscle contains more mitochondria than any other organ, and consumes a high level of energy.
|Calcium (as dicalcium phosphate unmilled and dicalcium phosphate anhydrous)
- Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body, and it comprises 99% of bones and teeth. The remaining free calcium is found in the blood and in the cells. If calcium levels in the blood drop and are not replenished, the body will take calcium from the bones.
- Calcium is vital for proper growth and development. It plays an active role in bone development and metabolism.
- Research suggests calcium helps build bone and improve bone density levels.
|Indian Gooseberry fruit extract (Capros® standardized to 60% low molecular weight hydrolyzable tannins Emblicanin-A, Emblicanin-B, Punigluconin and Pedunculagin)
- Amla, or Indian Gooseberry, is a primary medicinal plant in Ayurvedic medicine.
- Capros® is a unique amla extract that is supported by multiple US and international patents.
- Seven peer-reviewed studies suggest that Capros® helps support cardiovascular health by supporting healthy endothelial function, supporting normal cholesterol and normal triglyceride levels.
- L-carnitine shuttles fatty acids into the mitochondria where it is used to generate ATP.
- Preliminary cell line research suggests that L-carnitine and CoQ10 may have a synergistic effect on mitochondrial metabolism and exhibit stronger free radical scavenging effects when taken at the same time.
- Vegetarian diets are low in sources of L-carnitine which may make it difficult to deliver necessary amounts of this nutrient in times of increased demand.
5. Are there any ingredient standardizations?
The Indian Gooseberry fruit extract (Capros®) is standardized to 60% low molecular weight hydrolyzable tannins Emblicanin-A, Emblicanin-B, Punigluconin and Pedunculagin.
