Liposomal Ultra Vitamin Liposomal Ultra Vitamin

Quicksilver Scientific Liposomal Ultra Vitamin is a dietary supplement containing a complex of vitamins with the addition of antioxidants in the liposomal form.

Encapsulation of the supplement in phospholipid encasements allows to maximize the absorption of the ingredients at each stage of the digestive tract, thanks to which it will be possible to fully take advantage of the substances. Moreover, thanks to such a form, more effective crossing of blood-brain barrier is possible, which contributes to utilizing particular ingredients in order to support the work of the brain and nervous system.

Vitamin A belongs to the vitamins soluble in fats; its most important function is the protection of the vision system and antioxidant effect. Rhodopsin in the composition of the preparation allows to transmit a signal about the presence of light in the brain and the content of β-carotene, which constitutes a precursor of vitamin A, allows to inhibit macular degeneration, which takes place with age. By regulating the work of the immune system at the level of genes, it supports the fight with autoimmune diseases and shortens the time of colds. By decreasing oxidative stress in the organism, it reduces inflammations and lowers the risk of cancer.

Vitamin B1 (thiamin) takes part in carbohydrate metabolism, ensuring constant access of energy to the organism. It stems from the fact that it is a coenzyme in the reactions of carbohydrate breakdown. Thanks to this, it also supports the nervous system, as glucose is the main fuel for neurons.

Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) in the activated form exhibits key effect for the proper functioning of the nervous systems and mucous membranes in the organism. It constitutes the main precursor of FNN and FAD, which take part in the reactions of oxidation and reduction in the organism, ensuring optimal energy production in the processes of cellular respiration. By cooperating with vitamin A it conditions proper functioning of vision and moreover it supports epithelium of blood vessels, protecting it from the harmful influence of inflammations.

Vitamin B3 (niacin), being the component of coenzymes NAD and NADP, regulates the metabolism of carbohydrates, fatty acids and amino acids and extracting energy from them. By influencing fat metabolism, it normalizes cholesterol level, which stems from the fact that it blocks the breakdown of fatty tissue in favor of the utilization of free fatty acids and cholesterol present in blood. Thanks to this, it reduces negative influence of excessive cholesterol level on the functioning of blood vessels and heart. By increasing the level of NADPH in cells, it activates glutathione reductase, which eliminates harmful superoxides.

Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) structurally it is an amide of pantothenic acid and amino acid - β-alanine. Its main function is the production of coenzyme A and protein carrier of acyl groups. Thanks to this, acetyl-coenzyme A is created, which takes part in many important biochemical reactions. It is also a cholesterol precursor, which is the base for the production of steroid hormones.

Vitamin B6 in the form of pyridoxine hydrochloride constitutes a coenzyme, important for metabolizing amino acids. By supporting the production of many neurotransmitters and hemoglobin, it conditions proper functioning of the nervous system and supports channeling oxygen to tissues.

Vitamin B7 (biotin) influences the activity of biotin carboxylase and decarboxylase, to which Acetyl-CoA carboxylase and pyruvate carboxylase are also classified – these are enzymes, taking part in the process of gluconeogenesis and fatty acid synthesis. Moreover, it supports the breakdown of triglycerides and vLDL cholesterol fraction, which results from activating AMPK and cGMP in the liver. Thanks to this, it exhibits positive influence on the functioning of the cardiovascular system and protects the liver from excessive hepatic steatosis.

Vitamin B9 (folic acid, folate) supports the synthesis of DNA, thanks to which it conditions proper growth and functioning of cells. Its active form supports the process of methylation in the organism and helps to decrease the level of homocysteine, inhibiting its harmful influence on blood vessels. By supporting cysteine metabolism, it regulates the synthesis of such neurotransmitters as: dopamine and serotonin. In its active form it has the ability to permeate blood-brain barrier, thanks to which it supports the functioning of the nervous system and influences cognitive functions.

Vitamin B12 in the form of methylcobalamin exhibits neuroprotective effect, thanks to which it improves the functioning of the nervous system. The first important effect on the nervous system is homocysteine reduction in the brain, which leads to the degradation of blood vessels present there. Thanks to this, the vitamin supports proper nourishment of brain tissue. Moreover, it stimulates the repair of damaged nerves and maintaining their functions, which deteriorates with age. Positive influence on the nervous system manifests itself in the improvement of sleep, mood and memory. The presence of methyl group allows to optimize the process of methylation.

Vitamin C is one of the best-studied vitamins, the main aim of which is neutralization of free radicals. It appears in the supplement in the form of sodium ascorbate, which demonstrates gentle influence on the digestive tract, preventing unpleasant symptoms in people with sentivie stomach.

Vitamin D3 exerts its biological effect after combining with its receptor – VDR, which appears in many tissues, positively influencing the functioning of the whole organism. Its influence on bone structure is especially important. It stems from the fact that it takes part in calcium homeostasis, which constitutes an important building component for bones.

Vitamin E is a compound soluble in fats, having strong antioxidant effect, thanks to which it protects organism’s cells from excessive effect of free radicals. Along with coenzyme Q10 produced in the organism it supports the functioning of cardiovascular system, which stems from lowered cholesterol and normalized blood pressure. It also shows neuroprotective effect.

Vitamin K2 is a substance soluble in fats, which appears in the supplement in the best form of MK-7. It shows positive effect on the cardiovascular system, which stems from the positive influence of blood coagulation and transporting glutamic acid to arteries, which binds calcium present there and eliminates it, counteracting blood vessel calcification.

Betaine anhydrous (Trimethylglycine; TMG) constitutes an active choline metabolite, which allows to avoid unpleasant effect of weaker methylation. This process supports the organism in activating many substances and positively influences the process of eliminating redundant products of metabolism from the organism. As a donor of a methyl group it supports lowering homocysteine level and increases the level of active forms of folic acid.

Tocotrienols lower cholesterol level and decrease the risk of the creation of atherosclerotic plaque. Moreover, their reducing influence on infraction and ischemia was proven. By inhibiting blood aggregation, they prevent the creation of clots, which may constitute the source of many problems in this system.

Lycopene – a substance from the group of carotenes; it profoundly appears in tomatoes; it is a quite strong antioxidant. It also has the qualities protecting the organism from circulatory diseases and the process of carcinogenesis, however, the mechanism of this phenomenon has not yet been completely discovered. It is especially recommended to men in the risk group of developing prostate cancer.

Lutein – a natural pigment from the group of xanthophylls; it has antioxidant properties influences proper functioning of the eyes, as it protects them against damages caused by free radicals; it accumulates most actively in eye lens and central part of retina (yellow spot), which enables central vision and is responsible for visual acuity.

Zeaxanthin – yellow pigment; it is one of the two carotenoids in eye retina, where it fulfills a protective function; it supports neutralization of free radicals, appearing under the influence of UV radiation, to the effect of which photoreceptors containing high amounts of polyunsaturated fatty acids from the group of Omega-3 are especially exposed.

Summing up, Quicksilver Ultra Vitamin allows to effectively supplement deficits of vitamins important for the functioning of the whole organism. Liposomal formula enables the transport of the ingredients directly to cells, which allows to use much lower doses of the substance in comparison to simple multivitamins, the assimilability of which is scarce.

Vitamin A

Information

Vitamin A (retinol) is present in foods of animal origin (fish of the sea, fish, eels, liver, pork and beef, eggs, butter). In the plant products it is present as provitamin A (b-carotene), a powerful antioxidant. The food products containing pro-vitamin A are fruits in yellow and red, including apricots, tomatoes. Necessary in process of building and assimilation of proteins, affects the normal growth of bones and helps the treatment of eye diseases.Iinhibits the excessive action of the thyroid hormone - thyroxine, which simultaneously prevents the deposition of excess vitamin A. Necessary in the sports diet of in the form of food, such as dietary supplements and nutritional supplements.
Vitamin A deficiency causes growth inhibition, flaking and dryness of the skin, impaired night vision (i.e. Night blindness).
Excess of vitamin A leads to calcification of the bones and some soft tissues, and abnormalities in the functioning of glomerulonephritis
Dosage: Specified in IU and it is 5000 IU per day.


 

Beta-carotene

Information


Beta-carotene (provitamin A) is a fat-soluble form of vitamin A (retinol). It is a necessary vitamin for the development and acquisition of proteins, necessary to rebuild a bone structure. Irreplaceable in the treatment of eye diseases (prevents decrease of vision and so called night blindness). It strengthens the immune system. It is a strong oxidant. In its natural form it can be found found only in plants (unlike retinol, which is present in foods of animal origin) such as chard, squash, kale, carrots, apricots, tomatoes). Available in the form of supplements and nutrients as an essential component of the sports diet.

 

Chloride

Information

Chlorine (chemical element from the group of halogens) - in the natural form of gas it is poisonous and water-soluble (until recently used as a disinfectant in the water supply system, now replaced by fluorination). It is chemically active element. It is used in the form of sodium chloride (NaCl) and potassium (KCl). It participates in the process of digestion and maintains acid-base balance in the body, removes toxic products of metabolism in the liver (antitoxin). Natural source of chlorine for the body is salt and bladderwrack.
Chlorine deficiency can occur due to excessive sweating, vomiting, causing digestive tract problems. It also causes loss of hair and teeth.
Excess chlorine, for example. Drink excessive amounts of chlorinated water, destroys bacterial flora and vitamin E.
Dosage: Daily dose should not exceed 15 grams.


 

Vitamin B3

Information

Vitamin B3 (vitamin PP, niacin, nicotinic acid, nicotinamide) is niacinamide niacin. It is used in interaction with vitamins B1, B2 and B6 in the synthesis of hormones during lactation. It provides proper functioning of the brain and nervous system. It is helpful in inflammatory conditions of the skin. Required for synthesis of sex hormone, estrogen, testosterone, cortisone, and insulin. It does not lose its properties in the manufacturing and storage. The source of acquiring vitamins PP are both products of animal origin (the lean meat, eggs, fish) and vegetable origin (dates, figs, hazelnuts, plums).
Dosage: 2-12 mg / day for children, 14 mg / day for women, 16 mg / day for men and 17-18 mg / day for pregnant or nursing women.


 

Calcium

Information

Calcium (element chem. symbol Ca, atomic no. 20, the group of alkaline earth metals) is the basic building substance of bones and teeth, in which stored is 99% of the element, in the form of hydroxylapatite. When building bones and teeth, phosphorus is very important in the right proportion. It is a base-forming element and activator of many enzymes (ATPase) necessary to release the energy of ATP. It has a significant effect on blood clotting and regulates blood pressure and neuromuscular conductivity. Thanks to the reduced permeability of cell membranes, it soothes the symptoms of food allergies. Calcium is actively involved in the metabolism of iron interacts with vitamins A, C and D and phosphorus, magnesium. Natural source of calcium are animal products (dairy products, sardines, salmon, sprats eaten with bones) and plant products (nuts, soybeans, sunflower seeds). Absorption takes place in the small intestine (less in the colon), it has an effect on the level of lactose, insoluble fibre, organic acids, alkalinity (low pH). The best absorption have organic compounds (lactates, amino acid chelates etc.). Obstructing the absorption of calcium is caused by: phytic acid and oxalic acid as well as excess fat. Scientific studies have confirmed that the combination of calcium, magnesium, boron and vitamin D in dose 3 mg / 24h effectively prevent osteoporosis. Supplements on the market are both mono-preparation supplements (enriched with vitamin D3) and multi-component supplements, available at www.muscle-zone.pl.
Calcium deficiency disorders manifested in the construction of the bones (osteoporosis) and iron metabolism. The symptoms are: rickets, cramps and muscle tremor, osteoporosis.
Excess result
ing from an overdose of calcium supplements containing vitamin D3 for children and adults overdose of calcium (hypercalcemia). Symptoms of hypercalcemia are: lack of appetite, vomiting and constipation.
The dosage administered in various publications
are inconsistent: 800 - 1000 mg / 24 h (100 - 500 mg / 24h)

Vitamin B6

Information

Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine, pyridoxal, pyridoxamine) is soluble in the liquid. It participates in the metabolism of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. By reducing the amount of fat in the blood do not enable deposition of the body. It helps the absorption of magnesium and vitamin B12 (cobalamin). It works on the muscle antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory pain in the joints. It acts anti. It provides efficient operation of the brain. It increases energy increasing vigor of a man. The demand for vitamin B6 increases during pregnancy and breast-feeding infants. The natural product is: yeast, eggs, wheat germ, meat (liver), wheat bran, nuts, peanuts peanuts, soybeans. There is a hypothesis that can be synthesized by intestinal bacteria.
Deficiency of vitamin B6 causes abnormal metabolism of proteins, decrease in lymphocytes in the blood, causes a feeling of lethargy and fatigue intensifies.
Dosage: 1.5-2.5 mg daily (increased demand during pregnancy and lactation).


 

Biotin

Information

Biotin (vitamin H, co-enzyme R) is in a group of B vitamins, due to the presence of sulphur compounds it is involved in the synthesis of ascorbic acid (vitamin C). Also synthesized in the intestines. It enhances the production of hormones and regulates cholesterol levels. It reduces muscle pain. It prevents hair loss and graying of hair. It soothes the skin inflammations. No toxic effects. Often combined with other B group vitamins and vitamin A. The natural sources of biotin are: whole grain bread, yeast, eggs (yolk), milk, brown rice and cheese.


Daily demand: 100-300 mg per day


 

Folinic acid

Information

Folinic acid - 5-formyltetrahydrofolate, a biologically active form of folic acid. Its supplementation is recommended especially to people with methylation dysfunctions, as it is essential for the transformation of folic acid to the active folate. Taking into consideration the increasing tendency to disorders in this respect, folates are more and more often recommended as the basic, preferred forms of supplementation with folic acid.

Supplementation with these folates is especially recommended to women who are planning pregnancy or are pregnant. Folic acid in the biologically active form is responsible for regulating the formation of neural tube in the fetus and is conducive to its proper development.

In adults, folates are conducive to optimal methylation processes. It takes part in transforming homocysteine to methionine, thanks to which it demonstrates positive influence on the health of the cardiovascular system. In this way, it positively influences psyche, as the effectiveness of this process is conducive to the production of S-adenosyl methionine with considerable influence on maintaining proper emotional states.

Some sources also indicate the protective influence of folates on the development of cancers. This information, however, is not fully unambiguous. The present state of knowledge suggests that since the optimal supply of folates really decreases the risk of cancer development, its supplementation in excessively high doses may demonstrate the reverse effect.

 

Vitamin C

Information


Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) it is a vitamin soluble in body fluids, can be taken from foods (fruits and vegetables), or as drug derived synthetically. The largest of its resources can be found in broccoli, Brussels sprout, kale, black currant fruit and hawthorn, citrus fruits, tomatoes, Savoy cabbage, potatoes. In fact, intake of vitamin C of the food products does not limit the absorbed quantity. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a potent antioxidant, it is an antitoxic, increasing the immune system due to the elimination of risk of bacterial contamination. Vitamin C prevents rupture of blood vessels, affects the blood cholesterol level. It substantially increases the absorption of iron. Inhibits the growth of cancer cells. Lowers stress levels.
Vitamin C deficiency causes abnormal development of connective tissue, cracking capillaries, abnormal calcification of bone tissue, impaired
absorption of iron, scorbutus. With the lack of vitamin C, all kinds of injuries do not heal up properly. Vitamin C deficiency can be caused by smoking; each cigarette is destroying up to 100 mg of vitamin C.
Dosage: The demand is 60-80 mg daily. It does not limit the ability to consume higher doses. Some side effects may occur only with longer
taking of synthetic vitamin C.

Sodium

Information

Sodium is an important component of the intracellular fluids, and is a regulator of acid-base balance. Along with potassium affects the proper of growth and provides the proper functioning of muscles and nerves. The source of acquisition is table salt (NaCl) and bladderwrack, shellfish, bacon, beef, and of plant beets and carrots. People on salt-free diet should avoid, among others, spicy sauces and smoked meats and sausages.
Sodium deficiency is very rare, at heaving sweating after a long effort (e.g. in the marathon).
Excess sodium increases blood pressure (especially for the elderly), edema and increased thirst. Exceeding the daily dose of 14g a day can cause poisoning.

Vitamin K2

Information

What is Vitamin K2?

Vitamin K2 belongs to fat-soluble vitamins It is an important activator of many enzymes and proteins It shows a positive action on calcium balance by activating MGP protein and osteocalcin. This results in the removal of calcium deposits from blood vessel walls and transport of ions of this element to the area where it fulfills its function – teeth and bones. It reduces therefore the calcification of blood vessels and thus the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Moreover, it is a constituent of coagulation factors and cosequently prevents haemorrhages. It shows a synergistic action in combination with vitamin D and magnesium.

Vitamin K2 in the form of a dietary supplement of renowned brands e.g. Now Foods, Swanson, Life Extension, Jarrow Formulas and Thorne Research) can be found in formulas available at www.muscle-zone.pl

Menaquinone-7

Information

What is menaquinone-7?

Menaquinone-7 is a term used for long-chain form of vitamin K2, having seven isoprene residues in the side chain.  Contrary to another popular form MK-4, it is not synthesized in tissues, however, it may be produced in the intestines by means of the conversion from vitamin K1 by intestinal bacteria.

It exhibits especially positive influence on the health of the circulatory system, especially by lowering the risk of atherosclerosis and heart attacks. It owes this effect mainly to osteocalcin, activated by vitamin K2. This hormone is responsible among others for the transport of calcium to bones, which counteracts its storage in soft tissues, decreasing at the same time the probability of blood vessel calcification and the creation of atherosclerotic plaques. K2 MK-7 also contributes to protecting the nervous system, securing neurons from excitotoxicity induced by excessive activity of glutamate and reducing the consequences of excessively low level of glutathione.

Vitamin K2 in the form of menaquinone-7 is a very popular additive to supplements with vitamin D3, due to the synergy of effects and reducing potential negative effects of applying higher doses of cholecalciferol.

 

Menaquinone-7 may be found both in monopreparations and complex supplements in the offer of muscle-zone.pl.
