Vitamin A affects protein synthesis and intervenes in tissue development in particular of the skeleton. It intervenes in the fight against infection and contributes to epithelium integrity. Vitamin A is also of importance for sight.
Vitamin D participates in bone mineralization: it increases the intestinal uptake of calcium and facilitates its' absorption into the bones.
Vitamins E and C alos organic selenium (and vitamin A to a lesser degree) are important biological antioxidants participating in the protection of muscular cells.
Vitamin B1 is essential to carbohydrates metabolism.
Vitamin B2 activates the catabolism of lactic acid (like zinc) and intervenes, as do vitamins B3 and B8, in the metabolism of carbohydrates and lipids.
Vitamin B5 plays a role in the oxidation of fatty acids and carbohydrates.
Vitamin B6 intervenes in the regulation of the blood sugar level and contributes to liberating sugars from the glycogen reserves of the organism.
Vitamin B12 is known for its role in the formation of red blood celles (just like B6). More generally, it is implicated in the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and lipids.
100 % of the selenium provided is in the form of selenomethionine, the principal form under which selenium is stored in the organism.
Copper increases the use of lipids in energy production.
Copper and zinc are essential co-factors of copper-zinc superoxide dismutase (CuZn-SOD), fundamental enzyme in the antioxidant struggle.
Iron is a co-factor of numerous enzymes which intervene in energy production (cellular respiration).
Manganese intervenes in the metabolism of carbohydrates and lipids. It also takes part in neutralising free radicals as a co-factor of manganese superoxide dismutase (Mn-SOD).
