Vitamin C (calcium ascorbate) provides antioxidant protection, maintains the integrity of collagen, and helps promote capillary strength. Vitamin C also improves the absorption of iron and the resistance to infection. Humans do not manufacture their own supply of vitamin C, so it must be obtained through diet. Calcium ascorbate is a form of vitamin C that is less acidic and, therefore, easier on the stomach.
Citrus Bioflavonoids are found in the pigment of fruits. Bioflavonoids cannot be made by the human body, so they must be obtained through diet. As a vitamin supplement, bioflavonoids improve immune function and work synergistically with vitamin C.
Calcium (calcium ascorbate, DimaCal® dicalcium malate) gives bones their strength and controls muscle functions. Calcium maintains cell membranes, and is needed for nerve cell transmissions.
Iodine (potassium iodide) is an essential mineral for proper thyroid function. Iodine has a major role in thyroid hormone activities, including regulating metabolism, mental development, nerve and muscle function, and reproduction.
Magnesium (dimagnesium malate, TRAACS® magnesium lysinate glycinate chelate) works with calcium and phosphorus to build bones and teeth. Magnesium is responsible for over 300 enzyme reactions, and is critical in muscle and cardiac functions.
Zinc (TRAACS® zinc bisglycinate chelate) is a mineral that supports the body’s defense systems. Zinc promotes immunity, wound healing, and normal growth and development, in addition, it has been shown to support healthy reproduction.
Selenium (selenium glycinate complex) is a mineral that plays a major support role in the production of a potent antioxidant called glutathione peroxidase. Selenium protects DNA against free radicals, and boosts immune function.
Manganese (TRAACS® manganese bisglycinate chelate) is a trace mineral that is a component and activator of many enzymes. Manganese is necessary for building bones and connective tissue, and supports the nervous system. As a common daily multivitamin ingredient, manganese functions as an antioxidant, and may protect cells from damage.
Chromium (TRAACS® chromium nicotinate glycinate chelate) is a mineral that is part of a hormone-like substance called glucose tolerance factor (GTF), which is released into the blood when there are increased levels of blood sugar and insulin. Chromium works with insulin to metabolize fatty acids and carbohydrates.
Molybdenum (TRAACS® molybdenum glycinate chelate) is a trace mineral that plays an essential role in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins.
Potassium (potassium bicarbonate, potassium glycinate complex) is a mineral that is classified as an electrolyte. Like sodium and chloride, the other two electrolytes, it is involved in maintaining the body’s fluids and acid-base balances. Potassium is also essential for proper muscle function and various metabolic processes.
Sodium (sodium bicarbonate) is an electrolyte that is essential to maintain proper balance of fluid and body chemicals.
Boron (boron glycinate complex) plays a role in bone development, and can protect against osteoporosis. Boron maintains mental function and alertness.
Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) plays a role in supporting calcium uptake, and is partly responsible for the making and maintaining of bones and teeth. Vitamin D has also been found to boost immune function, and may be helpful for those with autoimmune diseases, depression, and cancer. Cholecalciferol, or vitamin D3, is the natural form of vitamin D that is found in food and made by the sun. This form of vitamin D is better absorbed and utilized by the body, which is why we include it in our powder vitamins.
Thiamin (thiamine hydrochloride) (B1) is a B vitamin and a coenzyme that is essential for many body functions, including energy metabolism, nerve and muscle function, as well as mood and mental attitude.
Riboflavin (riboflavin-5-phosphate sodium) (B2) is a B vitamin that affects numerous functions in metabolism and in the release of energy. B2 has a role in the conversion of all macronutrients—carbohydrates, proteins, and fats—into forms used by the body for energy.
Niacin (niacinamide) (B3) works with other B vitamins to release energy from carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. B3 promotes healthy skin and nerve function. B3 may also help maintain cholesterol levels in blood, and it is required for the production of adrenal and reproductive hormones.
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine hydrochloride) has a major role in the conversion of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats into energy. B6 is involved in the healthy function of nervous, immune, and muscle systems, and also has a role in the manufacturing of neurotransmitters.
Folate is a B vitamin that works with B12 and vitamin C in the breakdown and utilization of proteins. Folate is necessary for the formation of DNA (making of new cells) and the conversion of homocysteine to methionine.
Vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) is involved with the synthesis of proteins for healthy nerve function. B12 also supports cognitive and emotional well-being.
Pantothenic acid (d-calcium pantothenate) is a B vitamin that functions in many metabolic pathways to convert carbohydrates, proteins, and fats into energy. Pantothenic acid is also involved in red blood cell production, and supports and maintains adrenal gland function.
Arginine (L-arginine base) is an amino acid responsible for the healthy dilation of blood vessels, circulation, and blood flow. Arginine has a role in the production of ATP and nitric oxide. This amino acid can improve immune function, and it supports male fertility.
Lysine (lysine hydrochloride) is an essential amino acid that has anti-viral properties and supports a healthy immune system. Lysine ensures adequate calcium absorption, and plays a role in collagen production. Lysine must be obtained through diet because it cannot be manufactured by the body.
CoQ10 is a coenzyme that is essential for cellular energy production, and is a potent antioxidant that fights free radicals. Supplementing with CoQ10 is important in maintaining normal heart function because the energy provided to the heart muscle is supplied by CoQ10.
Our daily multivitamin also features the naturally occurring enzymes Superoxide Dismutase and Catalase work together to promote the conversion of hydrogen peroxide into beneficial oxygen and water, enhancing cellular oxygenation. The Superoxide Dismutase and catalase used are derived from melons. Oxylent contains 20 I.U. of Superoxide Dismutase which statistically is shown to contain 3 I.U. of catalase.
