People are not getting proper nutrition from their diets. This is especially the case with the aging population as well as children who are alarmingly hooked on so-called junk food. Lack of proper nutrition may be the result of our hectic lifestyle, and the claims that our professional, family and social lives lay on us. Recognizing this disturbing trend, Ultimate Nutrition has designed a full-spectrum product that provides all the essential nutrients to promote good health. This unique formulation contains antioxidants, vitamins, and trace minerals, which are required for optimal body function.
Antioxidants: It is no exaggeration to say that we are increasingly inundated with free radicals. Free radicals are the most pernicious entities produced in the body during normal metabolism. Even though the body is equipped to handle a certain load of free radicals, when more free radicals are produced than the body can handle, nutritional antioxidants become extremely important. Moreover, the aging process is driven by excess free radicals. To hold these molecules in check, it is extremely important not only to enjoy good health, but also to hold the aging process at bay. Super Complete contains a wide range of antioxidants that effectively scavenge for free radicals and nip them in the bud. Super Complete contains all the requisite antioxidants that function in various tissues to optimize health, including beta-carotenes, lutein, zeaxanthine, rutin, hesperidin, and several other bioflavonoids that work together with both fat and water-soluble vitamins.
Vitamins: A decrease in B vitamins has been linked to stress and the lack of a sense of general well being. With our hectic lifestyles, we are not getting a sufficient amount of vitamins from our diet. Anticipating this need, Super Complete contains the most important B vitamins in addition to vitamins C, D and E. Of course, vitamins C and E are also potent antioxidants and work in concert with each other to neutralize free radicals.
Minerals: As important as antioxidants are, the body also needs trace minerals for normal physiological function. The case of selenium illustrates the need for dietary supplementation with trace minerals. Most populations worldwide receive a sufficient supply of selenium from their diets. In the United States, however, the amount of selenium in the diet is woefully low. Selenium is an important trace mineral that functions as an antioxidant. Super Complete contains trace minerals and more abundant minerals to stimulate the body's own defense responses. In addition, minerals such as calcium and magnesium are required for absorption of amino acids and other nutrients in the body to maintain optimal metabolic function.
Amino Acids: To ensure that the metabolism remains active, Super Complete incorporates amino acids, such as glutamic acid and PABA, (para-amino benzoic acid), and precursors of amino acids,such as betaine hydrochloride. Glutamic acid has been shown to be a valuable dietary supplement in boosting the immune system. Furthermore, if ingested on an empty stomach and combined with a reasonable exercise routine, it induces the secretion of growth hormone that over time may reduce body fat and increase lean body mass. Betaine hydrochloride, on the other hand, serves as a precursor to derivatives of the amino acid methionine, which are involved in the synthesis of vitamins B in the body and the brain. Betaine hydrochloride allows the body to synthesize all the beneficial compounds that it needs in the right amount at the right time.
Ultimate Nutrition's Super Complete packs the punch. It delivers antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and amino acids that work together to stimulate the myriad reactions in the body to promote good health for enjoyment of life to the fullest.
Super Vitamin B Complex
The benefits of vitamins are not news, but we need them as surely as we need air to breath and water to drink. Make no mistake: a good supplement regimen starts with adequate vitamin intake. B vitamins are essential for maintaining healthy nerves, skin, hair, eyes, liver and mouth and also for muscle tone in the gastrointestinal tract. They give us energy and are necessary to metabolize carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Because B vitamins are water soluble, our bodies naturally flush them away daily. Physical and emotional stress, alcohol, dieting and our typical "on-the-go" lifestyles also increase their loss. That is why it is so important to replenish them daily.
B Vitamins are important for:
- health of the skin, bones, hair and muscle
- health of the mucosal membranes, particularly around the mouth
- intestinal health and bowel function
- relief of moodiness, restlessness, and fatigue
- liver health
- brain cell function and health
- relief from PMS
Because it includes methyl donors, the B-complex makes an excellent heart-health supplement. It is well established that a person's measure of blood plasma homocysteine acts as a biochemical marker inversely indicating folate levels. When a person's blood plasma folate levels are high, their homocysteine levels are low.
One of the water-soluble vitamins, vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine) is needed for a wide array of bodily functions, particularly in the handling of amino acid reactions. Here are some of the more interesting functions B-6 performs. It metabolizes cysteine into pyruvic acid, works with phosphorylase to convert glycogen into glucose, works to synthesize fatty acids and metabolize cholesterol, and is used to produce a variety of neurotransmitters including serotonin.
While B vitamins are found in foods, some are lost in cooking, and an excess of one B vitamin can result in a depletion of another. We suggest taking B vitamin as a complete supplement.
