Vitamin A: 2000 IU (50% Beta Carotene)
Vitamin A plays an important role in eyesight, supports the immune system, assists in bone growth, contributes to cell division, and aids in cell differentiation. Vitamin A also promotes the healthy surface lining of the eyes, skin, respiratory tract, urinary tract, intestinal tract and other mucous membranes which function as a barrier to bacteria and viruses (1).
Vitamin C: 60 mg
Vitamin C helps support the immune system, aids in wound healing, improves protein metabolism, is an important antioxidant and helps other antioxidants regenerate in the body. Some studies suggest vitamin C may promote vasodilatation and a decrease of plaque adherence to arteries, which decreases the risk of developing atherosclerosis. Vitamin C also assists with the absorption of iron. Humans, unlike most animals, are unable to synthesize vitamin C endogenously, so it is an essential dietary component (2).
Vitamin D3: 400 IU
Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol; the active form of Vitamin D) helps calcium absorption and is thus essential for strong bones, which may decrease your risk of developing osteoporosis. Vitamin D3 also maintains a healthy immune system, assists in neuromuscular function, and decreases inflammation (3).
Vitamin E: 10 IU
Vitamin E is as an antioxidant that helps boost the immune system by eliminating free radicals that can cause damage to cells in the body. Vitamin E also helps dilate blood vessels and inhibits platelet aggregation (4).
Thiamine: 2 mg
Thiamine aids in the conversion of food to energy. It is also involved in nerve, tissue, and muscle function (5).
Riboflavin: 3 mg
Riboflavin is a coenzyme that aids in the release of energy from nutrients into cells within the body. It also assists in human growth and red blood cell production (6).
Vitamin B6: 6 mg
Vitamin B6 performs a wide variety of functions in the body as it is involved in over 100 enzyme reactions, mostly concerned with protein metabolism. It helps promote the conversion of food into energy, aids in cognitive development, boosts the immune system, and assists in hemoglobin formation (7).
Folic Acid: 400 mcg
Folic Acid is a necessary component to the production and maintenance of cells, may help prevent cancer by preventing abnormal DNA changes, and prevents anemia by assisting in red blood cell production. Folic acid also helps activate vitamin B12 (8).
Vitamin B12: 25 mcg
Vitamin B12 helps keep nerve and blood cells healthy while assisting in the formation of DNA. It also maintains normal homocysteine function for cardiovascular health, converts food into energy, prevents anemia and maintains a healthy nervous system. It is currently one of the leading ingredients in supplements that claim to increase energy naturally. B12 also helps activate folate (9).
Biotin: 90 mcg
Biotin helps support the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins and plays a vital role in cellular reactions necessary for the continued growth and development of the human body (10).
Pantothenic Acid: 10 mg
Pantothenic acid is a coenzyme primarily involved in the synthesis of fatty acid oxidation. It is also used for overall energy metabolism (11).
Calcium Carbonate: 150 mg
Calcium helps build and maintain strong bones and teeth while reducing the risk of developing osteoporosis. It also promotes vasodilation, assists with muscle function, and allows for cellular signaling from the brain to each body part. In addition, calcium helps blood flow throughout the body. Some studies show a relationship between calcium intake and a reduced risk of developing hypertension (12).
Magnesium Oxide: 30 mg
Magnesium assists in hundreds of biochemical reactions throughout the body, specifically those reactions involved in vascular function. Magnesium helps maintain a steady heart rhythm, allows normal muscle and nerve function, promotes normal blood pressure, supports a healthy immune system, keeps bones strong, and is involved in protein metabolism (13).
Zinc Oxide: 15 mg
Zinc helps maintain a healthy immune system, aids in wound healing, supports the generation of normal DNA, and assists in cell division. This mineral also helps maintain a normal sense of taste and smell (14).
Selenium: 55 mcg
Selenium is a trace mineral involved in protecting the immune system from free radicals. Free radicals are a natural but dangerous byproduct of oxygen metabolism and can contribute to heart disease and other chronic diseases. Selenium’s powerful antioxidant properties can help decrease free radicals throughout the body (15).
Copper Gluconate: 2 mg
Copper is involved in energy production, collagen formation, iron metabolism, and has many other functions in the central nervous system. Copper also functions as an antioxidant throughout the human body (16).
Manganese Sulfate: 3 mg
Manganese aids in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. It also assists in bone formation and wound healing (17).
Chromium Picolinate: 110 mcg
Chromium is an essential mineral that aids in carbohydrate and fat metabolism. It is also promotes blood sugar homeostasis by enhancing the action of insulin (18).
Potassium Aspartate: 80 mg
Potassium helps maintain healthy heart function. It also helps maintain fluid balance, nerve transmission, muscle contractions, and healthy blood pressure (19).
Lycopene: 300 mcg
Lycopene is a powerful antioxidant that protects DNA from oxidative damage. Studies have a found a link between lycopene intake and a decreased risk of developing certain types of cancers (20).
Phosphorus: 20 mg
Phosphorus assists in energy metabolism, promotes mineralization of bone and teeth, is necessary for DNA synthesis, and aids in the maintenance of acid-base balance. It is necessary for all human growth (21).
Lutein: 500 mcg
Lutein has been linked to improved eye related diseases such as age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, and retinitis pigmentosa. Some research suggests Lutein may decrease the risk of developing colon cancer, breast cancer, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease.
