Optimal Prenatal Optimal Prenatal

Seeking Health, Optimal Prenatal Chewable is an advanced dietary supplement for women who are planning pregnancy, are already pregnant and breastfeeding. A unique composition of vitamins and mineral ingredients in the best forms has been closed in the form of chewable tablets, which are supplemented by additional substances, intensifying the activity of the preparation. The product in a comprehensive way supports the health of mothers and children and helps to maintain proper course of pregnancy.

Providing the organism with essential ingredients is crucial for women who are planning pregnancy, are pregnant or breastfeed. Proper supply of essential elements by pregnant women conditions proper course of pregnancy, the development of the child in the fetal period and also it influences its heath not only during childhood, but also in the adult life. It is also important to maintain the health of the mother and proper regeneration of the organism after childbirth.

Increased concentration of progesterone and other changes taking place in the organism in this special period may contribute to considerable restriction of assimilability of many nutrients and consequently – the need for them is increased.

Complex of vitamins
Vitamin D3
is essential for proper ossification of the skeleton of the developing fetus, influences regulation of calcium-phosphorus balance and is responsible for proper calcium absorption. Moreover, it takes part in the implantation and maintenance of the embryo and proper release of the placental hormones. Vitamin K2 plays an important role in the processes of homeostasis. Deficiency of vitamin K2 may be the cause of deficiency of coagulation factors, which consequently may lead to bleeding in the neonatal period and infancy.

Vitamins A, C and E help to maintain proper state of cellular balance by neutralization of the excess of free oxygen radicals, which may contribute to disorders at each stage of the reproduction process, contributing to the development of infertility. Moreover, vitamin A influences proper development of the fetus and counteracts infections of birth canal. Vitamin E counteracts damages of cell walls, increases immunity of erythrocytes to hemolysis and stabilizes cell membranes. Its deficiency may contribute to the increase of the risk of miscarriage, disorders of the development of the fetus and preeclampsia. Vitamin C conditions proper absorption of iron and influences proper growth of ovarian follicles as well as ovulation and luteal phase.

B-group vitamins influence health of the nervous system. They stabilize well-being and improve memory and concentration. Deficiency of vitamins from this group may be the cause of lower mood, neurosis and even depression. We will find in the preparation the following B-group vitamins: riboflavin (vitamin B2), thiamin (vitamin B1), niacin (vitamin B3), pyridoxin (vitamin B6), biotin (B7), pantothenic acid (B5) and also cobalamin (vitamin B12) in the form of methylcobalamin and adenosine cobalamin. The preparation also contains highly bioactive and assimilable methylated form of folate (5-MTHF) as well as its non-methylated form – folic acid.

B-group vitamins, mainly vitamin B6, vitamin B12 and folates, support the processes of methylation and have the ability to decrease the level of homocysteine, thanks to which they are important in counteracting circulatory diseases, neurodegenerative diseases and also fertility disorders. Their deficiency may be the cause of ovulation disorders and problems with the  implantation of embryos.

Supplementation with folates may prevent the occurrence of pregnancy disorders and the development of many birth defects in fetuses or new-born babies.

The complex of minerals
Calcium
influences proper metabolism of bones and teeth and is responsible for appropriate bone density in infants. Moreover, it takes part in normalization of blood pressure, thanks to which it may counteract the development of pregnancy-induced hypertension. Zinc is responsible for the proper functioning of the nervous and immune system of the fetus. It is essential in the process of embryo creation and counteracts defects of the skeleton and the central nervous system (CNS).

Magnesium conditions efficient work of the circulatory, nervous and skeletal systems and also plays a key role in growth processes. Proper supply of magnesium may counteract premature childbirth and eclampsia. Iodine is essential for the proper production of thyroid hormones, which play a key role i.a. in the appropriate development of the nervous system and brain functioning. Iodine deficiency may be the cause of birth defects and disorders of psychomotor development of a child (e.g. ADHD). Selenium takes part in the metabolism of thyroid hormones and influences appropriate immune response of the organism. Low concentration of selenium in blood serum may be related to the increased risk of idiopathic miscarriage, gestational diabetes and pre-eclampsia. Copper takes part in the synthesis of red cells, strengthens immunity and supports the work of the nervous system. Manganese is a cofactor for many enzymes taking part in the production of nucleic acids, proteins and in the metabolism of fats, cholesterol, carbohydrate and sex hormones. Molybdenum supports the immune system. Chromium positively influences glucose metabolism and carbohydrate tolerance, therefore it may have special meaning in case of gestational diabetes. Boron maintains proper mineral, lipid and hormonal balance of the organism and also supports memory and concentration.

Moreover, in the composition of the preparation there are also:
Betaine anhydrous – supports methylation processes and reduces the excess of homocysteine, thanks to which it supports the circulatory system. Milk Thistle Extract, thanks to the content of silymarin, improves the work of the liver, decreases digestive ailments and facilitates detoxification of the organism. Lutein and zeaxanthin have strong antioxidant and photoprotective properties. They positively influence eyesight – they protect from dangerous UV radiation. Coenzyme Q10 increases energy production in the organism, reduces the feeling of fatigue and protects from reactive oxygen forms.

To sum up, Seeking Health, Optimal Prenatal Chewable is a dietary supplement which comprehensively helps to complement the level of the most important nutrients, not only during pregnancy, but also during its planning and breastfeeding.

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.

 

Retinyl palmitate

Information

Retinyl palmitate - ester of vitamin A, especially valued in cosmetology. It is considered the gentlest form of this vitamin, therefore it is recommended to people with sensitive skin. It is also characterized by good assimilability in oral application, it is de-esterified without any problems in the small intestine to retinol, a fully active biological form of vitamin A.

Retinol demonstrates a wide range of activities in the human organism. Vitamin A is especially popular due to its positive influence on epithelial cells. It is responsible for proper, nourished state of skin, hair and nails. Apart from this, proper supply of retinol is also incredibly important for the health of the skeletal system, as vitamin A is a regulator of growth of bone tissue.

Vitamin A is also essential to maintain proper functions of eyesight. Its derivative, by binding with opsin, creates rhodopsin, which is responsible for stimulating the activity of rod cells located on eye retina. Thanks to this, it is possible to maintain proper vision in the conditions of poor lighting.

Some sources also suggest immunity functions of vitamin A. It may decrease the risk of pathogen permeation in the epithelium of the respiratory system.

 

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.

Ascorbic acid

Information

Ascorbic acid – vitamin C. Its biologically active form is the L-isomer, which negatively rotates the polarised light, so that it is a dextroisomer (laevorotatory vitamin C does not exist). It is a strong antioxidant; it reduces the amounts of free radicals, which reduces oxidative stress, a factor leading to cell apoptosis, which is why it is indicated to be a cause for premature ageing.

It supports the immune system functions and increases body system immunity. It is an essential element of the collagen synthesis path, which is why it positively affects the condition of connective tissue. Hence, it promotes also wound healing and increases the durability of capillary vessel. It is involved in transformations of tyrosine and carnitine as well as of some nutrients, so that it affects metabolism. It can also have an impact on the nervous system functions, as it reduces mental fatigue.

Higher supply of vitamin C is especially recommended in the periods of more intensive body system burden, after infections and in order to accelerate regeneration. The indications for increased supply of the vitamin are also hard physical work or intensive trainings.

Vitamin D

Information

Vitamin D belongs to fat soluble vitamins, occurs in three forms: calciferol (vitamin D1) ergocalciferol (vitamin D2) and cholecalciferol (vitamin D3), it is formed under the action of sunlight for at least 15 minutes per day. In the absence of sunlight it should be administered in the diet in the form of fish oil (Vitamin A + D3) and fish oils. It is responsible for the absorption of calcium and phosphorus. It is the building substance of bone tissue particularly necessary during pregnancy, childhood, and for athletes. It is a component of dietary supplements and nutrients among competetive athletes. Deficiency of vitamin D causes children growth inhibition, and rickets.
For adults - deficiency causes osteomalacia.
Excess
of vitamin D causes headaches, alopecia, nausea, drowsiness, blurred vision, pain in the long bones, the deposition of calcium deposits.
Dosage: 400 IU units during the day.


 

Vitamin E

Information

Vitamin E (tocopherol) is a fat soluble. Due to its antioxidant action, it is a protection of other vitamins (e.g. Vitamins A). Protects the body against free radicals, strengthens the walls of blood vessels and its capacity, causing their dilation and dissolution of blood clots. With the reduction of coagulation, it is used as an antiatherogenic medicine, it allows for the proper course of pregnancy. In cooperation with selenium it slows the ageing process of cells, strengthening connective tissue. In the food it is present in whole-grain bread, sprout and grains, vegetable oils (soybean, sunflower), soya beans and sunflower seeds, vegetable fat and hen egg yolks. Also it is used in sports medicine in the form of nutrients and supplements.
Vitamin E deficiency reduces building of red blood cells, results in changes in muscle and disorders of pregnancies.
Dosage: for children, 0.5 mg / 1 kg of weight; for adults 10-30 mg per day.


 

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.

Thiamine hydrochloride

Information

Thiamine hydrochloride - a highly bioavailable form of thiamine, also called vitamin B1. Due to an important role that it plays in carbohydrate metabolism, its increased supply is recommended to people with excessively high concentration of sugar in blood. It facilitates their processing in the organism and supports the activities that aim at restoring optimal glycemia. An important role in the metabolism of nutrients is also played by an integral component of carboxylase coenzyme - thiamine pyrophosphate.

Some source suggest the effectiveness of thiamine in relation to the health of the cardiovascular system, apart from decreasing glucose level in blood, it is also reflected in optimization of blood pressure. Although this aspect of effectiveness of vitamin B1 requires further research, it is another argument demonstrating special needs of taking care of proper thiamine supply by people from the risk group of the circulatory system diseases.

Among people who are especially prone to vitamin B1 deficiencies there are also people fighting with excess weight and frequently drinking alcohol.

 

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 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).


 

Quatrefolic

Information

Quatrefolic is the glucosamine salt of (6S)-5-methyltetrahydrofolate and also an active form of folic acid. It is an innovative nutrient (fourth generation folate) which is well soluble in water and thus absorbed effectively by the body. As an organic compound ranked among B vitamins, it is necessary for normal functioning at the cellular level.

Adding folates to a diet is recommended especially to pregnant and lactating women. These compounds may contribute to healthy foetal development. According to studies, their intake may reduce the incidence of pregnancy complications.

Some sources report that folate supplementation supports cardiovascular function (blood production) and contribute to healthy immune function.

Quatrefolic may affect the metabolism of homocysteine whose levels increase in the body over time. Adding it to a diet may thus prevent the development of dementia and maintain healthy cognitive functions which is vital to adults, especially the elderly.

Salt

Information

Salt (sodium chloride, or table salt), natural source of electrolytes (chlorine and potassium), regulating water and electrolyte and acid-base balance of the body, affecting the nervous system and blood pressure. Sodium is an essential element for the proper growth. The proper dose of salt prevents overheating of the body and solar stroke. It provides the proper functioning of muscles and nerves the body. Chlorine in combination with sodium, is involved in the digestive process and maintains acid-base balance in the body, as antitoxin removes toxic products of metabolism in the liver. Salt is a flavour component and preservative of many foods, nutritional supplements and mixtures of electrolytes, available at www.muscle-zone.pl

Dosage: no specific standards of consumption, used so as to provide sufficient amount of electrolytes to the body (sodium and chloride).

 

Calcium folinate

Information

Calcium folinate - a metabolite of tetrahydrofolic acid constituting a perfect form of its supplementation. Tetrahydrofolic acid is a biologically active form of folic acid, especially recommended to people dealing with methylation disorders. Folic acid in the active form is at the same time a promotor of this process, but it requires efficient action for its activation, therefore in case of methylation disorders, folates are the only effective form of supplementation of this compound.

Folic acid is mainly associated with pregnancy. In its active form, it is responsible for the regulation of the development of the neural tube of the fetus, which constitutes a key factor, conditioning its proper development. Providing folates is currently indicated as the most effective form of healthy pregnancy prophylaxis.

Another important aspect of the functionality of tetrahydrofolic acid in the organism is its role in the process of methylation. It positively influences the efficiency of transformations of homocysteine to methionine, thanks to which it demonstrates positive influence on the health of the cardiovascular system. The efficiency of this process is also conducive to maintaining the high concentration of S-adenosyl methionine in the organism. This compound demonstrates special influence on maintaining optimal mental functions and healthy liver.

 

 

Methylcobalamin

Information

What is methylcobalamin?

Methylcobalamin is a biologically active form of vitamin B12. It is one of the two forms of this vitamin that may be used as cofactors in various reactions. It differs from popular cyanocobalamin in the presence of methyl group instead of cyanide, thanks to which it releases the organism from the need of neutralizing this harmful factor.

The methyl group from methylcobalamin may be transferred to homocysteine, thanks to which it comes back in the form of methionine in order to be further converted to SAMe, which is the main donor of methyl groups in our organism. These methyl groups may be then used in the processes of creatine production, in neurotransmitter metabolism and as DNA methylation, thanks to which we achieve proper energy level, better well-being and generally better condition of the organism. B12 is a coenzyme for three enzymes: isomerase, methyltransferase and dehalogenase.

Apart from the influence on the nervous system, the supply of vitamin B12 is also very important for the proper synthesis of red cells as well as hemoglobin and anemia prevention.

 

Methylcobalamin in mono-supplements and complex vitamin preparations may be found in the offer of muscle-zone.pl.

Adenosylcobalamin

Information

Adenosylcobalamin - a biologically active form of vitamin B12, which similarly to its methylated form does not need to undergo additional biochemical transformations in order to enter metabolic pathways in the human organism.

Apart from the best assimilability, adenosylcobalamin is distinguished from other forms of vitamin B12 by its high affinity for regeneration of nervous tissue. It is indicated that this form of cobalamin is engaged in the production of myelin sheaths with key meaning for proper neurotransmission. Apart from this, vitamin B12 is conducive to maintaining optimal functionality of the nervous system, being conducive to the synthesis of neurotransmitters.

Vitamin B12 is also an incredibly important regulator of methylation process, thanks to which its supplementation positively influences metabolism of the whole organism. It is a coenzyme in the conversion reactions of homocysteine to methionine as well as methylmalonyl-CoA to succinyl-CoA. Because of the first reaction, proper supply of vitamin B12 is also conducive to maintaining high concentrations of S-adenosylmethionine, thanks to which it positively influences mental functions.

Moreover, vitamin B12 is a key regulatory factor, taking part in erythropoiesis, i.e. the process of forming red cells. Its improper supply may be the cause of the development of the so-called vitamin B12 deficiency anemia.

Supplementation with vitamin B12 should be considered especially be people on vegetable diets and those who take drugs from the group of proton-pump inhibitors (PPIs) and metformin.
