Choline - Supports: Proper transmission of nerve impulses from the brain through the nervous system, as well as for gallbladder regulation, liver function, and lecithin formation. It aids in hormone production, fat and cholesterol metabolism. May help brain function and memory.
Folic Acid - Supports: Energy production and formation of red blood cells. It strengthens immunity by aiding in the proper formation and functioning of white blood cells. Folic Acid is considered a brain food and is very important in pregnancy. It helps regulate late embryonic and fetal nerve cell formation, which is vital for normal development.
Inositol - Supports: Hair growth, formation of lecithin and the metabolism of fat and cholesterol. May have a calming effect and help reduce cholesterol levels. It may help prevent the hardening of the arteries.
ScFos (Short-Chain Fructooligosaccharide) - ScFOS is a natural, soluble prebiotic fiber. It’s called a “prebiotic” because it helps promote growth of beneficial bacteria in your digestive tract by producing “food” for this growth. Short-chain FOS (scFOS) is unique because it can be utilized more quickly than other types of FOS.
Its short-chain structure helps it break down rapidly in the digestive tract. Another benefit of this short-chain structure is that it tends to reduce gas and bloating thanks to its accelerated break down. In other words, it’s not the kind of fiber that might leave you feeling heavy or overloaded. A diet rich in prebiotics, both from natural sources or supplements, can help balance digestion, absorption, and immune health.
Fatty Acid Blend (Borage Oil) - Supports: Glands as it acts as an adrenal tonic and balancer. Contains valuable minerals and essential fatty acids needed for proper cardiovascular function and healthy skin and nails. It is also used for rheumatoid arthritis, stress, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), acute respiratory distress syndrome, pain and swelling (inflammation), and for preventing heart disease and stroke. Borage is also used to increase breast milk production.
Acai Berry (Euterpe Oleracea)
Supports: Protection of cells from damage that can lead to diseases like cancer, in addition to possibly directly inhibiting the growth of some types of cancer. Substances in acaí berries may reduce inflammation and could possibly slow the spread of cancer cells. Also, some lab studies of acaí extracts led to positive effects on blood vessels that could be useful for many different medical conditions. Acaí berries seem to have very high levels of antioxidants -- comparable to cranberries. Acaí berries also contain healthy fatty acids, such as oleic acid, one of the same oils found in olive oil.
So, make sure you shop for a natural, liquid, plant based multivitamin to supplement your healthy diet.
