Kids 137-in-1 Nutritional Information
A large portion of our cells, muscles, and tissue are made up of amino acids, meaning they carry out many important bodily functions, such as giving cells their structure. They also play a key role in the transportation and storage of nutrients.
Amino acids have an influence on the function of organs, glands, tendons, and arteries. They are furthermore essential for healing wounds and repairing tissue, especially in the muscles, bones, skin, and hair, as well as for the removal of all kinds of waste deposits produced in connection with metabolism.
Vitamin A is part of the fat-soluble group of vitamins. It is also an effective antioxidant that protects cells against damage and may be effective as an anti-aging tool. According to the National Institute of Health,
Vitamin A supplements are used to promote healthy skin, bones, teeth, mucous membranes, and improved night vision. Vitamin A may also help new cells grow and is a proven treatment for acne. ** However, too much vitamin A can be toxic, especially to the liver. ***
The vitamin B complex is a combination or mixture of eight essential vitamins [thiamin (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), folic acid (B9), cyanocobalamin (B12)]. Although each is chemically distinct, the B vitamins coexist in many of the same foods and often work together to bolster metabolism,
maintain healthy skin, tone muscles, enhance immune and nervous system function, and promote cell growth and division – including that of the red blood cells that help prevent anemia. Together they also combat stress, depression, and cardiovascular disease.
Vitamin C is an antioxidant required for tissue growth and repair, adrenal gland function, and healthy gums. The body cannot manufacture vitamin C, so it must be obtained through diet and vitamin C supplementation. Some of the other functions of vitamin C include that it aids in the production of anti-stress hormones,
it protects against the effects of pollution, it helps prevent cancer, and protects against infection. Vitamin C can also enhance immunity and it increases the absorption of iron. Vitamin C may reduce cholesterol levels and high blood pressure because it protects against blood clotting and bruising. It also promotes the healing of wounds and burns and neutralizes free radicals.
The major biologic function of vitamin D is to maintain normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus. Vitamin D aids in the absorption of calcium, helping to form and maintain strong bones.
It promotes bone mineralization in conjunction with a number of other vitamins, minerals, and hormones. Without vitamin D, bones can become thin, brittle, soft, or misshapen. Vitamin D prevents rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults, which are skeletal diseases that result in defects that weaken bones.
Vitamin E is also a fat soluble, essential nutrient and cannot be manufactured by the body. Some functions of vitamin E include that it scavenges free radicals, fights cancer, fights cardiovascular disease, and enhances blood clotting and circulation.
It promotes bone mineralization in conjunction Vitamin E also speeds healing and reduces scarring. It regulates hormone changes and keeps cell walls supple and strong. It reduces DNA damage in cells that can lead to mutations and cancer.
Calcium is the most common mineral in the human body. It is a nutrient in the news because adequate intakes are an important determinant of bone health and risk of fracture or osteoporosis. Few nutrients are as well-studied as Calcium it contains many positive health advantages.
Far from being just the bone mineral, Calcium plays a part in a number of other biological actions such as heart beat, rate and rhythm, nerve transmission, and muscle contraction. It also builds and maintains bones and teeth, regulates heart rhythm, eases insomnia, helps regulate the passage of nutrients in & out of the cell walls, assists in normal blood clotting, helps maintain proper nerve and muscle function, lowers blood pressure, is important to normal kidney function. In current medical research it is also shown to reduce the incidence of colon cancer and reduce blood cholesterol levels.
Magnesium is an essential trace mineral that is concentrated primarily in the bone, liver, pancreas, and brain. It plays an important role in many bodily functions as a part of several enzymes. Among its many uses, Magnesium is helpful in blood-clotting, bone mineralization, and possibly as an anti-oxidant.
Deficiencies of this mineral have been associated with depressed growth of hair and nails, scaly dermatitis, weight loss, and impaired blood clotting. Some preliminary research suggests that supplementing with Magnesium may help relieve the symptoms of osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, and PMS. It is also an antioxidant nutrient; important in the blood breakdown of amino acids and the production of energy; necessary for the metabolism of vitamin B1 & vitamin E; Activates various enzymes which are important for proper digestion & utilization of foods; is a catalyst in the breakdown of fats & cholesterol; helps nourish the nerves and brain; is necessary for normal skeletal development; and maintains sex hormone production.
Zinc is an essential element in humans, vital for growth and development, sexual maturity and reproduction, dark vision adaptation, sense of smell and taste, insulin storage and release, and for a variety of immune defenses.
Even borderline deficiency or disturbances in Zinc metabolism can have profound adverse health effects. Zinc is an antioxidant nutrient; is necessary for protein synthesis; aids in wound healing; is vital for the development of the reproductive organs, prostate functions and male hormone activity; it governs the contractility of muscles; is important for blood stability; maintains the body’s alkaline balance; helps in normal tissue function; and aids in the digestion and metabolism of phosphorus.
Selenium is an essential trace element in human nutrition involved in the defense against the toxicity of reactive oxygen species, also in the regulation of thyroid hormone metabolism, and the regulation of the oxidation state of cells. It is a major antioxidant nutrient, it protects cell membranes and prevents free radical generation,
thereby decreasing the risk of cancer and disease of the heart and blood vessels. Medical surveys show that increased selenium intake decreases the risk of breast, colon, lung, and prostate cancer. Selenium also preserves tissue elasticity; slows down the aging and hardening of tissues through oxidation; and helps in the treatment and prevention of dandruff.
Selenium is an essential trace element in human Chromium is an essential trace mineral nutrient required for normal sugar and fat metabolism. Chromium functions primarily by potentiating the action of insulin. Chromium occurs primarily in the trivalent and hexavalent forms;
the form in higher organisms is trivalent. This mineral occurs throughout the body with highest concentrations in the liver, kidney, spleen, and bone.
Aloe Vera’s use can be traced back 6,000 years to early Egypt, where the plant was depicted on stone carvings. Known as the “plant of immortality,” aloe was presented as a burial gift to deceased pharaohs. Historically, aloe was used topically to heal wounds and for various skin conditions, as well as orally as a laxative.
Today, in addition to these uses, aloe vera is used as a folk or traditional remedy for a variety of conditions, including diabetes, asthma, epilepsy, and osteoarthritis. It is also used topically for osteoarthritis, burns, sunburns, and psoriasis. Aloe Vera is popular in natural health as a digestion aid. Aloe’s ability to detoxify helps keep the immune system in check. A few studies have indicated that aloe can also play a role in lowering cholesterol. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), daily intake of 10 ml or 20 ml of aloe for 3 months was shown to reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol by 18 percent and total cholesterol by 15 percent. Some research has also demonstrated aloe vera’s ability to lower blood glucose levels.
Alpha Lipoic Acid:
Aloe Vera’s use can be traced back 6,000 years Alpha Lipoic Acid a nutrient with unique antioxidant activity, in that it is both fat- and water-soluble. Other well-known nutrients with antioxidant activity can only function within their soluble media. Because of its dual solubility,
alpha lipoic acid can function in both fatty and aqueous parts of a cell and is capable of defending against a wide variety of invading free radicals. Alpha lipoic acid can enter all parts of a nerve cell and also cross the blood-brain barrier and protect cells.
Cat’s Claw (Una de Gato):
Cat’s claw is indigenous to the Amazon rainforest, with its habitat being restricted primarily to the tropical areas of South and Central America. The most common claims for cat’s claw are that it boosts the immune system and increases the body’s ability to fight off infections, including yeasts, parasites, and herpes, as well as other viruses. The herb also is promoted as a remedy for rheumatoid arthritis,
Lyme disease, allergies, inflammatory bowel disorders, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, asthma, and menstrual disorders. Compounds with cat’s claw are thought to block the body’s production of inflammation producing substances and slightly reduce pain, but not the swelling that goes with typical arthritis. South American folk medicine holds that cat’s claw is a contraceptive and some practitioners claim that it can significantly decrease AIDS-related symptoms. The herb is also used for stomach ulcers, gastritis, eczema, “break-bone fever,” and liver diseases. Recent clinical studies find that the herb is useful for relieving knee pain. Since the 1980’s, cat’s claw most common use in modern herbal medicine is an immune stimulant. The oxindole alkaloids in cat’s claw strengthen the immune system and also improve circulation by lowering blood pressure.
Grape Seed Extract:
Grape seed extracts (GSE) are a powerful cardio-protective compound. They strengthen your arteries/capillaries, and offer rather dramatic antioxidant protection for your arteries and heart. New molecular science shows that the effects of GSE are much more diverse than previously understood.
GSE works actively at the gene transcription level to promote changes favorable to cardiovascular health that include reducing inflammation and improving cholesterol and triglycerides metabolism. They have even been found to have natural germ regulating properties and are a potent anti-candida compound.
Lycopene is a natural fat-soluble pigment (red, in the case of lycopene) found in certain plants (lycopene is responsible for the red color of red tomatoes) and microorganisms,
where it serves as an accessory light-gathering pigment and to protect these organisms against the toxic effects of oxygen and light. Lycopene may also protect humans against certain disorders, such as prostate cancer and perhaps some other cancers, as well as coronary heart disease. Lipids increase the absorption of lycopene.
Phytonutrients are compounds that are derived from plants. Plants typically use the phytonutrients to fend off infestation of microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi. In the human body, phytonutrients often display beneficial properties. Also called phytochemicals, they are protective or defensive chemicals made by all plants.
Fruits and vegetables tend to contain the most phytonutrients, although they are also found in whole grains, nuts, legumes, and tea leaves, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. They may also help deter or combat some diseases. In addition to acting as antioxidants and helping to prevent diseases such as cancer and atherosclerosis, phytonutrients display a combination of many other beneficial properties. For example, certain phytonutrients can boost immunity, enhance cellular communication, reduce inflammation, repair DNA damage, eliminate toxins, and alter the metabolism of hormones.
Plant Source Ionic Trace Minerals:
In nature, humans and many animals are supposed to obtain their mineral needs from consuming plants rich in the full spectrum of mineral elements. Unfortunately, due to poor farming techniques, most of the food grown commercially today contains less than 25% of the minimum requirement for these essential trace minerals.
Prolonged deficiency of these base elements results in an imbalance in the internal biochemistry of the human body. Plant derived ionic trace minerals are essential for life. By re-supplying these essential micro trace elements to the body from plant sources, we not only meet the body’s needs, but do so in a safe and highly absorbable manner. The only safe source of these trace elements is one derived from organic or plant material. The plant has the ability to alter the structure of the base elements by enveloping the minerals in complex organic compounds. These compounds are recognized by the human body and, due to their bioelectrical nature, are attracted to the cellular structures of the body, where they are most needed. Once absorbed, these micro trace minerals are responsible for tens of thousands of bio-chemical activities within the body including the formation of hormones, enzymes, and many other `chemicals of life’.
