Multivitamins Once daily
Vitamins help your body grow and work the way it should. There are 13 vitamins—vitamins A, C, D, E, K, and the B vitamins (thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, biotin, B6, B12, and folate. Vitamins and minerals are considered essential nutrients—because acting in concert, they perform hundreds of roles in the body. They help shore up bones, heal wounds, and bolster your immune system. They also convert food into energy, and repair cellular damage.
Vitamins present in Once Daily multivitamin include vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, and B-group vitamins in B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, and B12.
- Vitamin A is essential for eye health, and its deficiency could cause night blindness and keratomalacia.
- Vitamin C is involved in strengthening the blood vessels and immune system. It also contributes to wound healing, collagen production, iron absorption, and bone formation. It acts as a great antioxidant. Its deficiency may cause scurvy (bleeding gums), poor wound healing and tissue growth.
- Vitamin D is necessary for the healthy mineralization of bones and teeth. It is also involved in regulating inflammation and immune function. Its deficiency causes rickets and osteomalacia.
- Vitamin E is a great antioxidant that helps prevent oxidative stress caused by the activity of free radicals. It may also support nail and skin function by preventing cracked cuticles and dry skin respectively.
- Vitamin B1 or thiamine is necessary for the production of various enzymes that work to help break down blood sugar (glucose metabolism). It also plays a key role in nerve and muscle function. Its deficiency is known to cause beriberi and Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome.
- Vitamin B2 or riboflavin is involved in the metabolism of the food we eat. It is also necessary for the growth and development of body cells. Deficiency of this vitamin may manifest as inflammation in the lips.
- Vitamin B3 or niacin has great antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It is involved in converting the food we eat into energy and supporting the nervous system. It is also involved in keeping our skin and hair in good condition. Its deficiency is known to cause pellagra.
- Vitamin B5 or pantothenic acid is involved in the production of hormonal compounds. It is also necessary for the production of energy by helping break down fats and carbohydrates.
- Vitamin B6 or pyridoxine is actively involved in the production of red blood cells. As expected, its deficiency may cause anemia.
- Vitamin B7 or biotin helps the body to breakdown food materials like carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. It is also involved in the production of keratin, a protein which makes up our skin, hair, and nails. Deficiency of biotin may cause dermatitis.
- Vitamin B9 or folic acid plays a critical role in the production of DNA and RNA, red and white blood cells. It also plays a role in converting carbohydrates into energy. Its deficiency can negatively affect an unborn baby’s nervous system.
- Vitamin B12 or cyanocobalamin is necessary for the healthy functioning of the nervous system. It also plays an essential role in the production of red blood cells, DNA formation, and cell metabolism. Its deficiency may lead to neurological problems.1
The minerals present in Once Daily multivitamin include calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, copper, manganese, chromium, and molybdenum.
- Calcium, as we probably all know, is involved in the formation of strong teeth and bones. It is also important in never function, relaxing and contracting the muscles, blood clotting, and immune system function.
- Magnesium is found in our bones. It is essential for protein formation, muscle contraction, nerve transmission, and healthy functioning of the immune system.
- Zinc is a part of many enzymes. It is also needed for making of proteins and DNA. It is also involved in wound healing, sperm production, fetal development, and sexual maturation.
- Selenium acts as an antioxidant in the body. It prevents cell damage by fighting the activity of free radicals in the body.
- Copper is essential for the metabolism of iron. It is also a part of many enzymes.
- Just like copper, manganese and molybdenum are also a part of many important enzymes in the body.
- Chromium, as a trace element, is only needed in small amounts. It is involved in regulating blood sugar by working closely with insulin.2
