Pharma Nord's Bio-Multi Vitamin and Mineral supplement is based on the latest scientific insight into antioxidants and their vital contribution to optimal health. Because antioxidants function within the body in a mutually supportive manner, multiple antioxidants are more effective than large doses of single antioxidants.
Amongst its active ingredients, Bio-Multi Vitamin and Mineral contains the patented SelenoPrecise yeast (organic selenium), which contributes to normal functioning of the immune system, normal hair and nails, a well-functioning thyroid gland, and protection from oxidative stress caused by free radicals.
Bio-Multi Vitamin and Mineral contains 18 different vitamins, minerals and micronutrients. The preparation is subject to ongoing improvements and adjustments according to new scientific standards.
Free radicals are toxic chemicals produced within the body as unwanted by-products of normal metabolism. Additional free radicals may be generated following exposure of the body to toxic chemicals (e.g. pesticides, vehicle emissions), ultra-violet light, smoking and drinking alcohol. The body is protected against free radical attack by substances called antioxidants. Some antioxidants are manufactured within the body, and others must be obtained from the diet. Some types of antioxidant (e.g. vitamin E) are fat soluble, and preferentially protect lipid components of cells (cell membranes) from damage, whilst water-soluble antioxidant types (e.g. vitamin C) protect the main body (cytoplasm) of the cell. An imbalance between free radical generating and protective systems is known as oxidative stress. Avoidance of oxidative stress helps to maintain healthy cardiovascular, nervous, digestive and immune systems.
Antioxidant levels may be depleted in individuals consuming a diet with a high content of convenience foods, or individuals undergoing vigorous physical exercise.
