Vitamin B3, B6, B12, L-acetyl-carnitine, α-lipoic acid, nervonic acid, zinc and selenium supplement with black blueberry indicated to provide an additional supply of these nutrients in case of deficiency or increased need. Vitamins B3, B6, and B12 can promote energy metabolism and contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue; Zinc and Selenium contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress; black blueberry can promote the functionality of the microcirculation and have an antioxidant effect.
Components and their characteristics
α-lipoic acid: it is an important cofactor of the Krebs cycle and a powerful antioxidant that is rapidly absorbed after oral administration. It seems to prevent damage caused by oxidative stress in the central and peripheral nervous system. Its use is responsible for cellular functionality, promotes the use of glucose and the production of energy at the neuronal level also increasing the synthesis of neurotransmitters.
L-acetyl-carnitine: it is an important physiological cofactor necessary for the activity of mitochondria (the power plants of the cells). It is a useful supplement in all cases of deﬁcit acting at central and peripheral level, in assisting the therapy of mechanical and inflammatory nerve injuries, primary cerebral involutive syndromes (premature aging) or secondary to vasculopathies. In addition to its therapeutic effects, L-acetyl-carnitine appears to be able to stimulate neuronal growth and repair factors (NGF) and to protect the nervous system from oxidative damage.
Zinc: it is an essential mineral, present in the body in a quantity higher than that of any other trace element outside iron and is present in all tissues. It performs various functions: it is related to the normal absorption and action of vitamins, in particular those of the B complex; it is a constitutive element of many metalloproteases; it is important in DNA synthesis and it is a component of insulin.
Nervonic acid: is a monounsaturated fatty acid of marine origin, precursor of membrane glycolipids, essential in the modulation of ion channels and membrane receptors. The main properties attributed to it are the regeneration of the myelin sheath and the general improvement of brain functions, therefore it represents an excellent alternative for the adjuvant treatment of neuro-muscular and anti-aging pathologies.
Vaccinium myrtillus: the main actions performed by this phytocomplex are the protective actions against peripheral venous microcirculation, favouring the normalization of the resistance and elasticity of the vessel wall and also an anti-radical action.
Vitamins B3-B6-B12: fundamental their properties as metabolic co-factors of most human enzymes therefore their action is of fundamental importance for the prevention and repair of tissue damage.
Selenium: it is the antioxidant element par excellence as it fights the formation of free radicals. It is fundamental for the constitution of some proteins (selenoproteins) and indispensable for preventing senescence phenomena.
