What kind of vitamins and minerals we need ?

Vitamin B6
Vitamin E
Vitamin C


Vitamin C - also called ascorbic acid or L-ascorbate is a water soluble vitamin. Gross formula is C6H8O6 and has a molecular weight of 176.13 grams per mole. Left in air at room temperature was rapidly oxidized.

 Vitamin C

Due to the large number of beneficial effects on the human body. Vitamin C is used as a food additive, including in a number of drugs against influenza and cold diseases and in Bulgaria can be purchased from a pharmacy without a prescription in the form of tablets or vials. The most prominent role of ascorbate in the living organisms is an antioxidant and in the synthesis of collagen.

 Vitamin E

Vitamin E participates in the activity of the endocrine glands, especially the gonads, affects metabolism, regulate the distribution of fat and water in the body, ensures the proper functioning of muscle and nervous system. Its absence leads to infertility and miscarriages. It was found that the vitamin E is

Minerals are necessary for normal cell function, and serve as assistants in many enzymatic processes involved in the synthesis of connective tissue.

  • Calcium
The main function of calcium is structural. The skeleton of the adult male contains about 1.2 kg of calcium. There is continuous movement of calcium between the skeleton and blood, and other body parts. This is precisely controlled by hormones. Calcium also plays a role in cell biology. Calcium can bind to a wide range of proteins altering their biological activity. This is important in nerve impulse transmission and muscle contraction. Calcium is also needed for blood clotting, activating clotting factors.

  •  Boron and manganese
Boron and manganese are very important factors for the synthesis of collagen and GAG, and metabolism. It is known that some medications interact negatively with some other minerals, boron and manganese help to overcome this problem.

Enzymes, which contain zinc, helping to enhance the immune system, protection from free radicals, recovery of wounds, synthesis of proteins, preservation of vision, the maintenance of fertility in adult, control of the growth of children and also help in cell reproduction.

Copper is a coenzyme in the oxidation of lysine, which is essential for the conversion of collagen and elastin. It has anti-inflammatory properties and can relieve pain in arthritic and damaged joints.
