Lysine is an essential amino acid, which means that it is essential to human health but cannot be manufactured by the body. For this reason, lysine must be obtained from food. Lysine helps to fight Herpes outbreaks, increases growth hormone production, and helps to regulate hormone levels. Also aids in production of antibodies and supports the immune system.
Magnesium plays an important role in many of the body’s enzymatic reactions and plays an important role in neurochemical transmission and muscle contraction and relaxation and therefore has been used successfully for seizures and other muscle related problems. Magnesium acts on the vascular system to produce vasodilation – the relaxation of blood vessel walls increasing blood flow, which can help with lowering blood pressure and also preventing and treating migraine headaches. It is responsible for over 300 essential metabolic reactions in the body. It is required for synthesizing proteins in the mitochondria, and for generating energy in most of the body’s basic cellular reactions.
METHYLCOBALAMIN (B 12)
The natural form of B12 is better absorbed than Cyanobalamin and has been used to treat diseases such as, pernicious anemia, and diabetic and peripheral neuropathy. Vitamin B12 is an essential component for proper digestion and absorption of foods and for normal metabolism of carbohydrates, and fat. It aids in maintaining healthy nerve cells and red blood cells and is needed to make DNA. Vitamin B12 is also involved in homocysteine metabolism and plays a critical role in proper energy metabolism, immune function, and nerve function.
Vitamin B6, also known as Pyridoxine, is a water-soluble vitamin that is essential in the formation of healthy red blood cells and supports more vital bodily functions than any other vitamin. Since it cannot be stored in the body, it must be obtained daily from either food such as; potatoes, bread, meat, fish, eggs, beans, bananas, and nuts or you have to get it in supplementation. Vitamin B6 is required for the production of Serotonin, a brain neurotransmitter that controls mood, appetite, sleep patterns, and sensitivity to pain. Some research supports that B6 can help with the symptoms of PMS including nausea and vomiting.
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin. Unlike most mammals and other animals, humans do not have the ability to make their own vitamin C so we must obtain vitamin C through our diet. Vitamin C is required for the synthesis of collagen, an important structural component of blood vessels, tendons, ligaments, and bone. Vitamin C also plays an important role in the synthesis of Neurotransmitters, which are critical for brain function. In addition, vitamin C is involved in the process of transporting fat into cellular organelles called mitochondria, where the fat is converted to energy. Vitamin C is also a highly effective antioxidant and in small amounts can effectively protect important cells from free radical damage.
Zinc is an essential mineral that is naturally present in some foods, added to others, and available as a dietary supplement. Zinc is involved in numerous aspects of cellular metabolism. It is required for the activity of approximately 100 enzymes. Zinc plays an active role in immune function and is in many cold popular cold remedies. There has been studies that have shown that zinc use within 12 to 24 hours of onset of symptoms can reduce the severity and duration by 50%.
