Vitamins are important to all diets. They’re compounds that can’t be created by the body, so we need to get it from our diet. They play an important role in maintaining a healthy life.
Let’s take a look and what each vitamin does in helping your body.
- -- B-Complex Vitamins – The B-Vitamins, which include B6 and B12, are arguably the most important vitamins because it affects the brain. Mood and memory can all be affected if experiencing a deficiency in Vitamin B. In fact, Vitamin B helps regulate homcysteine, which has been found to be a “very significant risk factor” for Alzheimer’s disease and dementia according to a study by Boston University and Tufts University. Beyond Arginine Infusion, B12 and B6, two of the most important Vitamins in the B-complex, are found in dark green vegetables, grains, fish, poultry eggs and dairy.
-- Prydoxine (B6) is necessary for neurotransmitters and can even relieve PMS, while Cyanocobalamin (B12) may improve memory and mental fogginess (so great for Mondays!)
- -- Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) – Vitamin C has long been known to be an immune system booster and something that helps prevent scurvy. It’s found in most citric fruits, especially oranges. Recently it has been discovered that it can help relieve atherosclerosis.
- -- Vitamin D (Cholecalciferol) – They call this vitamin the sunlight vitamin because people can actually reap the benefits from this directly from the sun. In developed countries, Vitamin D is added to food so people get it in their daily diet, but its benefits include helping the absorption of calcium and phosphorus, and it’s even been proven to help the immune system. When taken regularly, it can help prevent cancer.
- -- Vitamin K (Phytonadione) – This vitamin is important in modifying certain proteins for blood coagulation. Vitamin K plays a role in bone growth and the maintancece of bone density.
These vitamins are all in our L-Arginine Infusion and are either at or above the recommended daily dose the government suggest for a healthy body.
