Vitamins


Vitamin A

Function

Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin and an essential nutrient for the human body. In addition to its properties as an antioxidant, it also helps support immune system and human vision.

Benefit

- Supports cell growth
- Maintains immune function
- Supports fetal development
- Helps in vision function

Found In

Vitamin A is usually found in sweet potato, chili pepper, carrot, pumpkins, tomato, red pepper, spinach, apricot, mango.

Synergy with Other Actives

Vitamin E enhances Vitamin A absorption. Zinc is required for Vitamin A transport. Retinoic Acid, a metabolite of vitamin A, is involved in iodine uptake.

Potential Inhibitors

No research found that other vitamins/minerals would inhibit Vitamin A absorption.

Vitamin B Complex

Function

B vitamins work together and play key roles as cofactors and enzymes in one-carbon metabolism (involved in amino acid metabolism, energy metabolism, nucleotide metabolism, DNA methylation, and neurotransmitter production). A healthy diet that contains a well balanced amount of all B vitamins supports brain health and cardiovascular health.

Benefit

- Helps in body's metabolism
- Supports energy production
- Helps in tissue formation
- Supports fetal development

Found In

Vitamin B complex is usually found in animal sources, such as milk, egg, fish, organ meats, beef, and chicken breast. Some whole grains, legumes, and fruits also contain vitamin B complex.

Synergy with Other Actives

Magnesium is required to convert thiamin to its biologically active form. Works synergistically with magnesium to increase absorption of both nutrients.

Biotin

Function

Biotin helps in the synthesis of amino acids and in mediating gene regulation. Biotin is also involved in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and amino acids.

Benefit

- Supports healthy hair, nail, skin, and mucous membrane
- Helps in body's metabolism

Found In

Biotin is usually found in egg yolk, liver and vegetables.

Vitamin B12

Function

Vitamin B12 is a cofactor for two enzymes involved in the production of the essential amino acid methionine. Methionine helps make DNA, proteins and lipids. Vitamin B12 also helps prevent megaloblastic anemia, a blood condition that is characteristic of inducing tiredness and weakness.

Benefit

- Helps in red blood cell formation
- Supports DNA synthesis
- Maintains the development and function of the central nervous system

Found In

Vitamin B12 is naturally present in foods of animal origin, including fish, meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products. Herbaland sources vitamin B12 from microbial fermentation.

Synergy with Other Actives

Vitamin B12 and folate work together to make red blood cells. Vitamins B12 and other B complex work together to control blood levels of homocysteine (high levels of homocysteine are associated with heart disease).

Vitamin C

Function

Vitamin C takes part in various biological and physiological processes in the body. It is involved in the synthesis and metabolism of amino acids and converts cholesterol into bile acids. Vitamin C is mostly known for its antioxidant capacity, protecting the body from free radicals, pollutnants and toxins.

Benefit

- Helps in the development and maintenance of bones, cartilage, teeth and gums
- Supports wound healing and connective tissue formation
- Maintains immune function
- Helps in body's metabolism

Found In

Vitamin C is abundant in citrus fruits, green peppers, strawberries, tomatoes, broccoli, brussel sprouts, and leafy vegetables

Synergy with Other Actives

Vitamins C and Vitamin E work synergistically for antioxidant defense. Vitamin C can improve absorption and metabolism of copper. Vitamin C increases absorption of non-heme iron.

Vitamin D3

Function

Metabolic functions of Vitamin D include the maintenance of calcium homeostasis and regulation of calcium channels in the muscle. Vitamin D promotes the development of various cells in the body such as white blood cells, intestinal epithelial cells and osteoclasts.

Benefit

- Helps in the development and maintenence of bones and teeth
- Reduces the risk of osteoporosis
- Maintains immune function (by promote development of white blood cells)

Found In

Vitamin D3 can be synthesized by the human body with UVB radiation, also found in fatty fish, shiitake mushrooms, and liver. Herbaland sources vitamin D3 from lichen.

Synergy with Other Actives

Vitamin D increases calcium absorption. Magnesium is a cofactor for the biosynthesis, transport, and activation of vitamin D.

Folate

Function

Folate helps synthesize DNA and is involved in protein and carbohydrate metabolism. It is also needed to prdouce healthy red blood cells (very crucial in periods of rapid growth, such as during pregnancy and fetal development)

Benefit

- Supports cell growth and function
- Supports DNA synthesis
- Prevents the occurance of fetus' neural tube defects

Found In

Folate can be found in dark green vegetables (spinach, romaine lettuce, asparagus, brussels sprouts, broccoli), peans, peanuts, sunflower seeds, whole grains, fresh fruit and juice.

Synergy with Other Actives

Vitamin B12 and folate work together to produce red blood cells.
