About the Ingredients:
Zinc contributes to normal DNA synthesis, normal acid-base metabolism, normal carbohydrate metabolism, normal cognitive function, normal fertility and reproduction, normal macronutrient metabolism, normal metabolism of fatty acids, normal metabolism of vitamin A, normal protein synthesis, the maintenance of normal bones, the maintenance of normal hair, nails and skin, the maintenance of normal testosterone levels in the blood, the maintenance of normal vision, the normal function of the immune system, the protection of cells from oxidative stress and it has a role in the process of cell division.
Vitamin B6 contributes to the normal function of the immune system, the regulation of hormonal activity, normal cysteine synthesis, normal energy-yielding metabolism, normal homocysteine metabolism, normal protein and glycogen metabolism and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
Biotin contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism, normal functioning of the nervous system, normal macronutrient metabolism, normal psychological function, normal hair and skin and the maintenance of normal mucous membranes.
Beetroot is a rich source of potent antioxidants (such as betanin, the pigment that gives beetroot its deep colour) and other essential nutrients, including magnesium, manganese, sodium, potassium, phosphorus, soluble fibre, calcium, iron, vitamins A, B and C, folic acid and betaine. Beetroot's carotenoids and flavonoids can help to support liver function, as well as reduce the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, which could lead to damaged artery walls and ultimately heart attacks and strokes. In particular beet fibre has been shown to have cholesterol-lowering capabilities. Similarly, betaine lowers plasma homocysteine, a possible risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Beetroot has also been shown to lower blood pressure and thereby help to prevent cardiovascular problems.
Native to Iran, the Himalayas and northern India, the pomegranate is high in vitamins A, C, E and iron, and is often referred to as a “fruity panacea” because of its numerous health health benefits. It is an important traditional remedy in many ancient systems ofmedicine; in Ayurvedic medicine, for example, the rind of the fruit is used against diarrhoea, dysentery andintestinal parasites. It is now known that the rind contains ellagitannins that are anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-parasitic,anti-inflammatory and astringent. The medicinal applications of pomegranate, known to ancient medicalsystems for centuries, are now being validated through empirical evidence gleaned from scientific investigation. In recent years, a number of studies have surfaced which describe the therapeutic uses of pomegranate inareas such as rheumatology and cardiology. For instance, the anti-inflammatory properties of pomegranatepolyphenols have been shown to offer protection against atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease.
Grape seed extract contains a wide array of beneficial constituents, suchas protein, lipids, carbohydrates, polyphenols and high levels of proanthocyanidins, which aresimilar to flavonoids. It also supports heart health by protecting collagen, which is essential for healthy arteries. Studies have shown that the antioxidant power of polyphenols is 20 times greater than vitamin E, and 50 times greater than vitamin C, which makes grape seed extract an ideal means of protecting the body against oxidative and free radical damage. Some people call these polyphenols “nature’s biological response modifiers” because of their ability to help the body fight viruses, allergens, and carcinogens. That means that, among their many benefits, they exhibit anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic and anti-microbial activity. One particular type of phenol found in grapeseed is called procyanidin, which can support good vision, joint flexibility, the health of body tissues and strengthen capillaries and veins to help improve the circulatory system. Procyanidin is also thought to protect the body from premature ageing (by increasing vitamin C levels in the cells and scavenging for toxins so the organs can get rid of them) and to delay the oxidation of low density lipoproteins (the fats that are responsible for “bad cholesterol”).
