Fluoride is a natural mineral found in different foods and water. Fluoride is important in the formation and development of teeth and bones. It may be used to help prevent tooth decay and cavity formation.
Folic acid is a type of vitamin B that is normally found in such foods as lentils, oranges, whole-wheat products, green leafy vegetables, asparagus, beets, broccoli, and brussels sprouts. Folic acid is very sensitive to heat and can be easily destroyed through cooking and therefore one may not get enough of it in their diet. Folic acid helps the body produce and maintain new cells, plays an important role in cell division, contributes to normal blood formation and mental function, reduces fatigue, and is needed for the development of the fetus during pregnancy.
Magnesium Plus contains a blend of various minerals that are essential to health. These minerals are in their chelated forms for increased bioavailability. Magnesium Plus is used to help maintain normal acid-base metabolism, DNA synthesis, electrolyte balance, connective tissue formation, and energy metabolism. Moreover, it may help with the development and maintenance of bones and teeth, skin health, regulating the immune system, normal blood glucose levels, and muscle function. This IC was created with the help of magnesium, calcium, zinc, copper, boron, manganese, molybdenum, chromium, and selenium.
Acerola, also known as acerola cherry, is a fruit rich in vitamin C. It also contains vitamin A, thiamine, riboflavin, and niacin. Acerola may be used to treat or prevent scurvy as well as prevent heart disease, atherosclerosis, blood clots, and cancer. It may also be used to help fight colds and flu, pressure sores, bleeding in the eye, tooth decay, gum infections, depression, hay fever, diarrhea, dysentery, and collagen disorders. Athletes may use acerola to improve their physical endurance.
Risedronate belongs to a class of medications called bisphosphates and is used to prevent and treat osteoporosis in adults that may develop due to age, menopause, or long-term usage of corticosteroid medications (such as prednisone). It may also be used to treat Paget’s disease of the bone (in which the formation of the bone is abnormal). Risedronate works by slowing down bone loss which in turn helps maintain strong bones and reduce the risk of fractures.
Selenium is an essential mineral found in food and water and plays an important role in metabolism and thyroid function. Selenium is a powerful antioxidant that also is used to boost the immune system and may help with debilitating weakness, acne, regulation of thyroid function and cellular metabolism, cognitive function, gastrointestinal upset, diarrhea, respiratory distress, high fever, paralysis, profuse sweating, dental caries, liver damage, tremor, nerve damage, hair loss, brittle nails, decreased sperm count and motility, prostate adenoma/cancer, sexual weakness, premature ejaculation, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), arthritis, cataract, and type 2 diabetes.
Calcium (Citrate) is the chelated form of the mineral calcium using citric acid and is highly absorbable. It is necessary for normal functioning of nerves, cells, muscle, and bone and may be used to reduce the risk of osteoporosis, support bone formation and maintenance, improve bone strength, maintain healthy teeth, support colon health and aid with hypothyroidism.
Magnesium is a mineral that's important for the body to turn food into energy and for bone health.
Although magnesium is available in supplements, most people should be able to get all the magnesium they need from a healthy balanced diet.
Magnesium health benefits and uses:
There is some evidence that eating foods high in magnesium and other minerals may lower blood pressure. Magnesium may help some people with heart disease, but the British Medical Journal cautions "We need bigger studies to find out for certain if taking magnesium can help to reduce blood pressure." Type 2 diabetes is also associated with low magnesium.
Experts say that many people do not eat enough magnesium-rich foods. This mild magnesium deficiency could put them at risk of a number of diseases such as:
Potassium is an essential mineral that functions as an electrolyte. It helps the body regulate fluid, send nerve signals and manage muscle contractions. Potassium may be used to control fluid balance, support the nervous system, regulate muscle and heart contractions, reduce blood pressure, protect against strokes, prevent osteoporosis, fight kidney stones, reduce water retention, protect against loss of muscle mass, preserve bone mineral density, and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Copper (Citrate) is a chelated form of copper using citric acid. Copper is an essential trace mineral that is necessary for various bodily functions. It may be used prevent cardiovascular disease, help promote energy metabolism, prevent and manage osteoarthritis, help maintain collagen and elastin, and assist in the formation of hemoglobin and red blood cells through facilitating iron absorption.
Vitamin K is an important fat soluble vitamin that plays a central role in many aspects of health. It helps with the formation of bone proteins and blood clotting factors. Vitamin K may assist with building strong bones, ensure healthy blood clotting, promote heart health, and boost brain function.
