Take a few hours before or after taking medication How it Works Multivitamin and mineral supplements provide a balanced dose of the basic vitamins and minerals in amounts that pose little or no risk of overdosing on any one nutrient. Vitamin A: Plays a role in our immune system and in the formation of healthy epithelial tissue. An antioxidant, it protects against damage to cells that can lead to cancer. Vitamin D: Stimulates the absorption of calcium and has anticancer properties. Vitamin E: Protects the fatty tissues of the body. Protects against toxic substances. Vitamin C: An antioxidant and immune-enhancing vitamin. Vitamin B1: Protects against impaired mental function, required for proper energy production in the brain. Vitamin B2: Needed for tissue repair and for healthy eyes. Important for energy production. Vitamin B3: Functions in the body as a component in the coenzymes NAD and NADP. Plays an important role in energy production; fat, cholesterol, and carbohydrate metabolism; and the manufacture of many body compounds, including sex and adrenal hormones. Pantothenic Acid: Vital to the healthy functioning of the adrenal glands, which is why pantothenic acid has long been considered an “anti-stress” vitamin. Vitamin B6: Involved in the metabolism of amino acids and essential fatty acids, and is therefore required for the proper growth and maintenance of all body functions. Folic Acid: Vital to healthy cell division and replication, especially the lining of the gastrointestinal tract, the skin, and the bone marrow, where blood cells are formed. Also involved as coenzymes for neurotransmitters, and important to the healthy functioning of the immune system. Vitamin B12: Involved in the production of DNA, red blood cells, and the myelin sheath that surrounds nerve cells and speeds the conduction of signals along nerve cells. For proper absorption of B12, the stomach produces a digestive secretion called intrinsic factor. Biotin: A B vitamin that is involved in the biosynthesis of fatty acids and energy production. Calcium: Besides its role in the formation of bones and teeth, calcium is also involved in fat and protein digestion and the production of energy. It is involved in blood clotting and the transmission of nerve impulses, and it regulates the contraction and relaxation of muscles, including the heart. Magnesium: Besides its role in maintaining healthy bones, magnesium is also involved in maintaining a healthy nervous system. In addition, magnesium is required for muscle relaxation, energy production, protein formation, cellular replication, the regulation of sodium and potassium in the cells, and ef? cient heart function. Phosphorus: The second most abundant mineral in the body after calcium. Contributes to bone hardness and plays a part in almost every important chemical reaction in the body, especially in the utilization of fats, protein, and carbohydrates. Potassium: The most important dietary electrolyte, potassium functions in the maintenance of water balance and distribution, acid-base balance, muscle and nerve cell function, heart function, and kidney and adrenal function. Iron: Transports oxygen from the lungs to the body’s tissues and carbon dioxide from the tissues to the lungs. It also functions in several key enzymes in energy production and metabolism, including DNA synthesis. Zinc: Functions as a cofactor in over 20 enzymatic reactions. Plays a role in insulin activity, protein and DNA synthesis, taste and smell, wound healing, the maintenance of normal vitamin A levels, bone structure, and the immune system. Manganese: Required for many enzyme systems, normal bone growth and development, and normal reproduction. Also required for the proper functioning of the nerves and possibly the immune system. Copper: Copper is required f
