Optimum Nutrition Opti-Woman composition:
Vitamin A - a key vitamin when it comes to the health of our skin, hair and nails. That is why it is often an invaluable ingredient in skin and hair supplements. The use of vitamins is especially important for dry and acne prone skin. It helps the skin to maintain an adequate level of hydration, making the skin more elastic and soft. It also helps in the fight against signs of aging such as wrinkles. It is helpful in reducing stretch marks or symptoms of peeling skin.
Vitamin C is the basis for the structure of the skin, bones, cartilage, tendons, blood vessels and valves in the heart. Ascorbic acid is a powerful antioxidant, accelerates the decomposition of harmful substances formed under the influence of intense training, also effectively protects against infections. Another advantage of this vitamin is the improvement of iron absorption and improvement of oxygen transport to cells, which clearly translates into improved muscle condition. Effective absorption of oxygen extends the time of muscle work and delays the stage of anaerobic muscle breathing causing soreness. In addition, vitamin C effectively leaches lactic acid from the muscles and thus accelerates the recovery process after training. In addition, ascorbic acid affects the release of male hormones including testosterone which is desired by athletes.
Calcium - is an essential mineral, affecting, among others, maintaining the body's electrolyte balance, which is necessary for its proper functioning. It is an important component of bone tissue and is necessary for its proper development, as well as for the processes of smooth functioning of nerves, muscles and the heart.
Iron - is an essential mineral for health. It is a key component of numerous enzymes, needed for energy conservation and the proper functioning of the immune system.
Vitamin D - affects muscle work, which translates into better control over the body and stronger activation of muscle fibers for work. Regulation of androgen levels and tissue sensitivity to insulin allows maximization of anabolic processes and optimal use of nutrients. A beneficial effect on adipose tissue reduction can also be noted, among others due to elevated adiponectin. Research confirms the effect on the increase in the burning of spare body fat in people who have previously suffered from vitamin D deficiency.
Vitamin E - inhibits LDL cholesterol oxidation, thanks to which it prevents the formation of atherosclerotic plaque. It actively participates in the synthesis of anticoagulants, maintaining proper permeability of cell membranes and minimizes the phenomenon of platelet aggregation, which is why it effectively prevents the formation of blood clots in the blood vessels. Its intake is recommended for people with high blood cholesterol. It can be used in prophylaxis against myocardial infarction.
Vitamin K - is involved in the synthesis of osteocalcin, which is involved in the binding of calcium to the bone matrix, creating new bone tissue. In the case of vitamin deficiency, inactive production of osteocalcin is noted, which can lead to loss of calcium from the bones, reduces their strength. Vitamin K2 is much more effective for the body than its synthetic form, especially when it comes to calcium metabolism and building healthy bones.
Thiamin - is very well soluble in water which directly affects its absorption. It plays an important role in tissue respiration, including carbohydrate metabolism. This is one of the most important vitamins, whose deficiencies can lead to weakness, fatigue, eye problems (nystagmus), circulatory failure, digestive system disorders, and even in extreme cases to depression.
Riboflavin - in recent studies it was found that riboflavin supplementation reduced the number of migraine attacks by half. American research from 2014 showed that even in children aged 5-15 years suffering from migraines, supplementation with vitamin B2 brought a clear reduction in the intensity of pain. To understand the potential therapeutic effect of riboflavin, you need to know that its role in the body is very broad - it not only participates in the formation of blood cells, but also in the process of converting proteins, fats and carbohydrates into energy. Therefore, the deficit may be associated with a reduction in the effectiveness of basic physiological processes.
Niacin - is extremely important for the functioning of the peripheral nervous system. Niacin increases the activity of mitochondria. In addition, it contributes to the proper maintenance of cholesterol in the blood, and also participates in the synthesis of sex hormones: insulin, cortisol and thyroxine.
Vitamin B6 - is a coenzyme of many enzymatic transformations in the body, among others amino acid transamination and decarboxylation. Particularly important is its participation in the transformation of tryptophan, which produces serotonin and nicotinic acid. It is necessary in the process of phosphorylation, affects glycogenesis and glycogenolysis in muscles, plays an important role in immune and hematopoietic processes. It reduces the secretion of prolactin, which has a negative effect on male libido. Folic Acid - folic acid has an important effect on health because it reduces the risk of developing anemia and helps concentration and relieves the feeling of chronic fatigue.
Vitamin B12 - is a vitamin responsible for the proper functioning of the nervous system, it also participates in the metabolism of proteins and fats and contributes to the proper level of homocysteine, supporting the circulatory system. Stimulates the production of serotonin - a neurotransmitter responsible for good mood. It also works directly on brain cells, protecting them from toxins.
Biotin - is part of the vitamin B group, although it is not a vitamin. It is a coenzyme that works in conjunction with vitamins. It is necessary for the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates and proteins. As a coenzyme, it participates in many processes and is used by every cell in the body. Biotin is involved in energy metabolism and plays an important role in the use of glucose. It is necessary for the growth and replication of cells and allows the creation and maintenance of chemical structures of keratin (the main protein found in hair and nails). Biotin is soluble in water and its excess is eliminated in the urine.
Pantothenic Acid - pantothenic acid is extremely important for skin as well as hair. A deficiency of vitamin B5 in the body is manifested by pathological changes on the skin, such as keratosis or excessive peeling of the epidermis, pigmentation disorders as well as hair loss. Deficiency of this vitamin causes foot numbness.
Iodine - a compound necessary for normal thyroid function. Because iodine is found in large quantities only in fish, most people are not sufficiently supplied with this element. Iodine deficiency causes enlargement of the thyroid gland.
Magnesium - bone component - stabilizes the level of calcium phosphates, which prevents their demineralization, a cofactor of many enzymes (including kinases), plays an important role in the process of muscle contraction, stimulates the body's defenses, necessary in the initial phase of the process of steroidogenesis, indirectly controls the synthesis of growth hormone , insulin and insulin-like growth factor (IGF).
Zinc - necessary in the synthesis of protein and nucleic acids, directs muscle contractility, has its share in the process of insulin formation, accelerates wound healing, improves mental performance, is a cofactor for numerous enzymes.
Selenium - helps protect the body against free radicals, prevents premature aging, supports the immune system, necessary for proper growth.
Copper - trace element that affects our well-being, appearance and health. Effectively fights the bacterium and exerts an anti-cancer effect. It ensures the proper functioning of the heart and is necessary for the construction of blood vessels. In addition, copper helps strengthen immunity, and also prevents osteoporosis.
Manganese - manganese regulates the work of the nervous system, affects fat metabolism, participates in the metabolism of sex hormones, necessary to maintain normal bone condition.
Chromium - improves the transport of amino acids to cells, stimulates energy metabolism. For people who are slimming and exercising, an important property of chromium is its positive effect on reducing the need to reach for sweet snacks.
Dong Quai - because of its action is known and used for a thousand years in Asia for ailments of female nature. The phytoestrogens present in the plant mean that regular use reduces menopausal symptoms by regulating the hormonal balance of women. A decrease in estrogen levels during menopause is the cause of many negative symptoms from mood swings to hot flushes, excessive sweating, and vaginal dryness. Scientific research is convincing about the effectiveness of using this plant for the above-mentioned symptoms. Scientists provide conclusive evidence that Chinese angelica is helpful in severe menstrual cramps, especially in women just before menopause. Coumarin compounds, which have a relaxant effect by fighting inflammation and increasing uterine blood supply, are responsible for this effect. In addition, dong quai has non-protective properties and increases the concentration of acetylcholine in the brain, which increases concentration and improves memory.
Garcinia Cambogia - inhibits the process of lipogenesis (formation of fat from carbohydrates and proteins), thanks to which it reduces the accumulation of unnecessary fat. By increasing glycogen resources, it reduces appetite, which is very often the reason for the failure of all kinds of diet plans. It shows catabolic properties against fats and anti-catabolic properties against proteins, thus helping to obtain a slimmer, more muscular figure.
Uva Ursi - this plant, widely used in medicine, is known as bearberry. Due to its composition, it is widely used in diseases of the urinary system, digestive system, gastric problems. It contains such ingredients as gallic acid, cholic acid or natural flavonoid isoquercetin. These substances have a slightly diuretic effect and cleanse the body of unnecessary and harmful metabolism products. They reduce the toxicity of many compounds, eliminate the effects of free radicals. The use of bearberry causes increased urine output, getting rid of excess water from the body, along with which toxins are removed. In addition to the beneficial effect on the condition of internal organs, the improvement in muscle definition through loss of subcutaneous water is correlated with this.
ALA - a natural organic compound from the group of carboxylic acids, which plays an important role in removing free radicals, also has the ability to chelate metal ions, which improves the process of removing heavy metals from the body. Alpha-lipoic acid actively supports weight loss, which promotes the loss of excessive kilograms, further reducing excessive appetite and uncontrolled hunger attacks.
Ostivione - an advanced blend of isoflavones that supports bone formation, increases mineralization, density and skeletal strength. It supports the proper functioning of the joints and the musculoskeletal system. Ostivone provides a safe and effective alternative to estrogen therapies. Ostivone works synergistically with calcium, increasing its absorption. Research also demonstrates the ability to inhibit osteoclast formation and promote osteoblast activity. This double effect minimizes bone loss and at the same time promotes their growth. Effectively maintains optimal bone density for people who are at risk of osteoporosis.
Citrus Bioflavonoids - citrus bioflavonoids are natural substances that give color to plants, and above all fruit. It is a large group of substances consisting of about 4,000 chemical compounds. Bioflavonoids have many benefits for the body and are helpful in maintaining fitness and good health. The compounds act at the cellular level by capturing excess free radicals. Bioflavonoids participate in the synthesis of collagen, a substance that is responsible for the condition of the tendons and joints, as well as the good appearance of our skin. They are also a natural filter that protects against the harmful effects of UVA radiation.
Soy Isoflavones - soy isoflavones are a source of phytoestrogens having similar effects to estrogens. They reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, regulate estrogen levels, and increase bone density.
Lycopene - a hydrocarbon, a natural dye from the group of carotenes that reduces the effects of free radicals on the body, thus protecting it from falling ill.
Lutein - active carotenoid from the extract of marigold flowers. Tagetes is a cholagogue and protects the liver. Has diuretic and anti-rheumatic properties. Accelerates the body's detoxification process by removing unnecessary waste products. Marigold flowers in various shades of yellow and orange are one of the richest sources of carotenoids, compounds with antioxidant and anticancer properties. The most important among this group of dyes is lutein, widely used in ophthalmic diagnostics. Scientific studies confirm that already at a dose of 6 mg / day reduces by 57% the risk of developing AMD (macular degeneration).
