Calcium is required for vascular function, the secretion of various hormones, the contraction of muscle tissue, nervous transmission and forms the structural basis of bone tissue.
Chromium is an essential nutrient involved in glucose metabolism by enhancing the effects of insulin. It is also involved in protein and fat metabolism.
Copper is a mineral needed by the body for numerous activities including; for the creation of energy, to help form haemoglobin and for the immune system.
Folate (Vitamin B9)
Folate is considered a ‘brain food’ and is needed for the production of energy and the formation of healthy red blood cells. It is best known for its role in healthy cell division and replication and is also involved in regulating homocysteine levels.
Iodine is essential for thyroid hormone production and normal thyroid function. It contributes to the normal growth of children, normal cognitive function and normal nerve and skin function.
Magnesium the fourth most abundant mineral in the body, is essential for proper smooth and skeletal muscle contraction, nerve conduction (both key factors in proper cardiac rhythm and function) and is involved in immunity, bone health, preserving stable blood glucose and in carbohydrate and protein metabolism.
Manganese is a mineral that is important in the body for bone health, energy metabolism and fat synthesis.
Nicotinamide aids in proper functioning of the nervous system, circulation and the maintenance of healthy skin. It is involved in the production of stomach acid, bile secretion, in the creation of sex hormones as well as the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and fats.
Phosphorus is an important constituent of human bones. It is needed for proper digestion, regulated excretion, protein formation, hormonal balance, improved energy extraction and cellular repair.
Potassium works in combination with the other mineral salts to preserve proper osmolality of blood and is essential for neural function and cellular transport.
Riboflavin is needed in the body for red blood cell formation, energy production and physical growth. It aids in the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and fats.
Selenium is a vital mineral that plays a key role in reproduction and is vital for normal thyroid function and immune function. It is involved in making DNA and helps protect cells from oxidative stress. It also contributes to healthy hair and nails.
Thiamine (Vitamin B1)
Thiamine assists in blood formation, carbohydrate metabolism and the creation of HCL which is needed for digestion. It aids brain function, effects energy production and acts as an antioxidant to help protect the body from damage.
Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin that comes in 2 main forms: pre-formed Vitamin A (eg. Retinyl Palmitate) and pro-vitamin A. Different classes of carotenoids work synergistically to maintain good health. Good Green Stuff contains a broad spectrum of 400 different mixed carotenoids.
Vitamin B5 plays a role in the production of adrenal hormones, thus aiding the body in dealing with the ‘stress response’. It is also involved in the conversion of carbohydrates, fats and proteins into energy for the body to use.
Vitamin B6 is a very versatile vitamin required by the nervous system for normal brain function. It activates many enzymes in the body and is needed for B12 absorption. It is used by the immune system and aids in the production of antibodies.
Vitamin B7 (Biotin)
Vitamin B7 helps in cell growth, fatty acid production and with the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. It is needed for healthy hair and skin and promotes healthy nerve tissue and bone marrow.
Vitamin B12 aids folic acid in regulating the formation of red blood cells and helps with the utilisation of iron in the body. It is needed for proper digestion and absorption of foods and in the synthesis of proteins and metabolism of carbohydrates and fats. It aids cell formation and is needed for nervous system health.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps reduce the oxidative effects of free radicals in the body. It also promotes the destruction of viruses and encourages greater immunity to infection.
Vitamin D is created in the body when the skin is exposed to sunlight and is needed to enable the absorption of Calcium and Phosphorus. Dietary supplementation with Vitamin D is particularly important in winter months.
Vitamin E is a fat-soluble nutrient found in many foods. It is an important antioxidant, helping the body to combat the effects of damage caused by ‘free radicals’. Vitamin E also aids effective immunity against viruses, bacteria and other pathogens, and is involved in cellular communication.
The primary role of Vitamin K is to aid blood coagulation, and research is emerging showing the importance of Vitamin K in bone formation, cell differentiation and neural health.
Zinc is an essential mineral involved as a co-factor for enzymatic reactions in the body. It is also essential for proper immune function, protein synthesis, wound healing, synthesis of DNA, cell division, digestion and hormone production.
