Lifestyle, illness, health events and medication can increase the demand for a variety of nutrients. This formula improves the nutritional status of people eating average to good diets to optimum levels. It will also elevate the nutritional status of those eating poor diets to an improved level of nourishment and protection. It is not a substitute for a healthy diet but is an ideal all-purpose multivitamin and multi mineral food state and whole food supplement to resolve the nutrition gap between dietary provision and optimum levels.MultiBioVits 40 Plus is designed to support your body to cover the nutritional gap common in modern diets. It is tailored to age 40 plus age groups containing the vitally important CoQ10 in its active form. It also contains beta glucans.
MultiBioVits 40+ contains the following key nutrients:
Co-enzyme Q10 is essential for cell energy release in human tissue. It is an amazing chemical cofactor which is required by every cell in the body to produce the energy we need to live. The importance of Co-enzyme Q10 to human health has been confirmed by a large number of scientifically validated studies. Co-enzyme Q10 is thought to help stimulate mitochondrial function and therefore improve energy metabolism. Co-Enzyme Q10 is an important nutrient for the cardiovascular system. It is an anti-oxidant and it prevents the oxidisation of cholesterol. It is essential for the production of energy in the mitochondria and elasticity of blood vessels. CoQ10 depletion is considered a critical factor in heart failure. Those taking the cholesterol reducing statins are particularly at risk for lowered CoQ10 levels due to statins blocking the natural production of CoQ10 in the liver. Co-enzyme Q10 significantly elevates antioxidant nutrient levels of selenium, zinc and vitamin C.
The COQ10 in MultiBioVits 40 Plus is ubiquinol the chemically “reduced” and far more bio-effective form of Coq10. Our production of CoQ10 decreases as we age as does our ability to convert it to the active ubiquinol form so it is VITAL to supplement with the correct form of this enzyme to achieve the important health benefits.
Beta 1-3, 1-6 Glucan
Beta 1-3, 1-6 Glucan is a scientifically-proven biological defence modifier (BDM) that improves the activity of the immune system by “priming” it to respond more rapidly and effectively against infections such as bacteria and viruses. It is most commonly associated with colds, flu and infections support but Beta glucan potentiation of the immune response is systemic, activating the immune system throughout the whole body. Beta 1-3, 1-6 Glucan is a natural form of soluble dietary fibre, derived from the cell wall of baker’s yeast. All Beta Glucan supplements are not the same and Beta 1-3, 1-6 Glucan should not be confused with the Beta Glucan found in oats (for example) that seeks to reduce cholesterol.
Folic Acid as Methylfolate
Methylfolate (5MTHF) is the most stable, safe and bioeffective form of folate. An adequate intake of folate is essential for the prevention of many disorders such as anaemia neural tube defects, various forms of cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s, colon cancer and depression.
Vitamin D is most commonly associated with assisting with the maintenance of strong bones and teeth, helping support the functions of the immune system and contributing toward normal muscle functions. Vitamin D is needed for normal growth and development of bone in children Vitamin D3 is the most bioavailable form of this nutrient. Insufficient Vitamin D is now known to be a factor in the aetiology of many disease conditions, where adequate levels of intake are found to be protective .The emerging evidence is that we need around 50ug/day for health and this is the newly established RDA in Canada.
Food State Iron is presented to the body in a gentle, non-constipating and well absorbed way. Food State Vitamin C aids the absorption and utilisation of the iron. Both the minerals Copper and Molybdenum positively affect the transportation and release of iron in our bodies.
Calcium is essential to build and maintain normal bones and teeth maintaining the strength and rigidity of bone and enamel. Calcium contributes to normal cell division and development, normal muscle function, normal neurotransmission (nerve signalling), normal blood clotting, normal energy metabolism and to normal function of digestive enzymes.
Magnesium is an essential mineral – nearly 70% of the body’s supply is located in the bones – so magnesium aids in bone growth and is necessary for the proper functioning of muscles. Low magnesium is implicated in fatigue and chronic pain. Magnesium is involved in many essential metabolic processes including the release of energy from glucose and normal nerve function. Magnesium can contribute to a reduction of tiredness and fatigue. Magnesium activates enzymes necessary for the metabolism of carbohydrates and amino acids. It also helps promote the absorption and metabolism of other minerals and vitamins.
Iodine is vital for thyroid function. Only the thyroid gland can take up iodine and it uses the iodine to make thyroid hormones. The thyroid hormones are then released into the bloodstream and are transported throughout the body, where they control metabolic rate, metabolism and many other vital functions such as cardiac output, heart rate and respiratory rate – every cell in the body depends upon thyroid hormones for regulation of their metabolism. Iodine is one of the micronutrients known to be short in many people’s the diets. It naturally occurs in sea produce and salt. Those on low salt diets and those consuming less than 3 portions of fish a week can easily be short of iodine intake. ALSO those people living in areas where the water is fluoridated easily become iodine deficient, as fluoride inhibits uptake of iodine to the thyroid gland.
MultiBioVits 40 Plus contains all eight of the important B-Complex vitamins plus PABA .
Biotin assists in the making of fatty acids, in DNA synthesis and in the oxidation of fatty acids and carbohydrates- Without Biotin the body’s fat production is impaired. Biotin also aids in the utilisation of protein, folic acid, pantothenic acid and vitamin B12
Niacin acts as a co-enzyme, assisting in the breakdown and utilisation of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. Niacin is effective in improving circulation and normalising blood cholesterol levels. Niacin is vital for the proper activity of the nervous system and for the formation and maintenance of healthy skin, tongue and digestive system tissue. Niacin is necessary for the synthesis of sex hormones.
Pantothenic acid occurs in all living cells. Pantothenic Acid helps maintain a healthy digestive tract and can improve the body’s ability to withstand stressful conditions. Pantothenic acid stimulates the adrenal glands and increases production of cortisone and other adrenal hormones important for healthy skin and nerves. It plays a vital role in cell metabolism; as a coenzyme, pantothenic acid participates in the release of energy from carbohydrates, fats and proteins. It is essential for the synthesis of cholesterol, steroids and fatty acids and aids in the utilisation of other vitamins.
Vitamin B6 – Vitamin B6 is in the form of Pyridoxal 5 Phosphate, the bioactive and enzymatically converted form of B6. Vitamin B6 is essential to physical activity due to its involvement in the energy cycle by activating the release of glycogen from the liver and muscle. Similarly Vitamin B6 plays an important role in the breakdown of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Vitamin B6 also contributes an important role in the functioning of the immune and nervous systems due to its production of red cells and the cells of the immune system. Vitamin B6 contributes to the regulation of body fluids through maintaining balances of sodium and potassium. The need for vitamin B6 increases during pregnancy and lactation; it can also help inhibit homocysteine. Therefore the vitamin may support a healthy, balanced menstrual cycle and assist with nutrient deficiencies attributed to PMS/ PMT
B6 vitamin (Pyridoxine) contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity and is needed for the production of red blood cells.
Vitamin B12 contributes in the process of cell division is particularly important for brain function, bowel health and production of red blood cells.
PABA (Para-Amino-Benzoic Acid) is not a B vitamin, but is closely associated with the vitamin B complex. PABA is water-soluble and considered unique, in that it is “a vitamin within a vitamin”, occurring in combination with folic acid. PABA Can contribute to healthy skin. Helps form Folic Acid, Can aid in the uptake and use of vitamin B5
Selenium is a mineral that plays an important role in our immune system’s function and the protection of cells from oxidative stress. Selenium is a key nutrient in helping support the functions of the immune system and maintains certain energy-producing cells, including those of the heart, by ensuring an adequate oxygen supply. Selenium is necessary for the production of ‘prostaglandins’ and as such plays an important role in maintaining thyroid functions and male fertility/ reproductive functions
Zinc contributes to normal fertility and reproduction. Zinc is the second most abundant trace mineral in the body, being present in all tissues and has a wide variety of functions including growth and human development, the healthy functioning of the immune system, and the maintenance of healthy skin, hair, nails and bone. Zinc contributes to cognitive function, to protein and DNA production and contributes to protection of cells from oxidative damage.
Vitamin C has vital protective capacity keeping cells healthy by protecting DNA and cell membranes from oxidative damage. It is required to make collagen – the main protein in all of your tendons, ligaments and blood vessels it helps the absorption of iron particularly iron from non-animal sources so helpful for vegetarians/vegans. It contributes to the normal function of the nervous system, normal energy yielding metabolism and normal function of the immune system during and after extreme physical activity
Vitamin E occurs in nature as 4 different tocopherols and 4 different tocotrienols, all the tocopherols and tocotrienols are present in MultiBioVits 40 Plus. Vitamin E contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress it is the most powerful antioxidant vitamin in the body-it prevents saturated fatty acids and vitamin A from breaking down and combining with other substances that may become harmful to the body (such as free radicals). Vitamin E is popular with sports people training to increase their endurance and stamina as it causes dilation of the blood vessels permitting a fuller flow of blood to the heart
Beta Carotene (as Vitamin A) – As Beta Carotene is a precursor of vitamin A found in plants it is enzymatically converted to vitamin A in the body as it is required. Beta Carotene is considered safer than taking Vitamin A because the body only converts the amount it needs at any point in time. The Retinol (A1) form of vitamin A should be avoided in pregnancy and this is the recommendation of the NHS. Beta carotene contributes to the maintenance of normal skin and immune system – it may be particularly beneficial in supporting the immune system of people who smoke or drink alcohol. Beta Carotene may be beneficial in helping those who are convalescing
Vitamin K2 is a vital co-factor for proteins which are essential for the bone building process and it also contributes to normal blood clotting.
Molybdenum supports the functions of the nervous system and kidneys. Molybdenum also plays a role in energy production in cells and it is particularly helpful in aiding the utilization iron.
Copper is required to maintain the nervous system and blood cells. This is very important as zinc and copper compete with each other to be absorbed in the body – as a result taking long tern zinc can cause copper deficiency but this is prevented by wht copper in MultiBioVits 40+
