Ingredients In Nutrasine™ & their functionalities:
Vitamin C (as mineral ascorbates)
Vitamin C ( ascorbic acid) is a water-soluble vitamin. We can’t store it in the body, which means we need it from our diet every day.
Vitamin C helps protect cells and keep them healthy. It is also involved in the production of collagen, which maintains healthy connective tissues, important for the support and structure of tissues and organs including the skin, bones and blood vessels.*
Vitamin C helps with wound healing, and consuming vitamin C increases the amount of iron we can absorb from plant sources, such as kale, broccoli and sprouts.*
Hydrolyzed Collagen (Bovine)
Hydrolyzed collagen is composed of small amino acids, which help form new collagen in the body. While there is currently no evidence supporting its many claims, some suggest hydrolyzed collagen is capable of increasing lean muscle mass stores, treating arthritis, and even rebuilding certain organs.*
What is Hydrolyzed Collagen
Hydrolyzed collagen is collagen that is derived from bovine bone and cartilage. Usually, the bone is crushed, ground, defatted, soaked in acid to remove the calcium, soaked again to break the collagen bonds and then dehydrated. This process results in small, intact amino acids which have not been damaged. These amino acids are quickly absorbed into the bloodstream, and are used as the building blocks of new collagen.*
Lysine, or L-lysine, is an essential amino acid, meaning it is necessary for human health, but the body cannot make it. You have to get lysine from food or supplements. Amino acids like lysine are the building blocks of protein. Lysine is important for proper growth, and it plays an essential role in the production of carnitine, a nutrient responsible for converting fatty acids into energy and helping lower cholesterol. Lysine appears to help the body absorb calcium, and it plays an important role in the formation of collagen, a substance important for bones and connective tissues including skin, tendons, and cartilage.*
Athletes sometimes use lysine as a protein supplement. Some studies suggest lysine helps muscle tissue recover after stress.*
Colostrum is a milky fluid that comes from the breasts of humans, cows, and other mammals the first few days after giving birth, before true milk appears. It contains proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals, and proteins (antibodies) that help fight agents such as bacteria and viruses. Antibody levels in colostrums can be 100 times higher than levels in regular cow’s milk.*
Some athletes use bovine colostrum to burn fat, build lean muscle, increase stamina and vitality, and improve athletic performance.*
Bovine colostrum is also used for boosting the immune system, healing injuries, repairing nervous system damage, improving mood and sense of well being.*
Bioflavonoids, also known as vitamin P, are water-soluble and composed of a group of brightly colored substances that often appear in fruits and vegetables. These substances are commonly companions of vitamin C. The components of the bioflavonoids are citrin, hesperidin, eriodictyol, quercetin, rutin, flavones and flavonals.
This vitamin was first discovered as a substance in the white fleshy segments of citrus fruits. There's ten times the concentration of bioflavonoids in the the edible part of the fruit than there is in the juice.
Bioflavonoids are essential in the body for the proper absorption and utilization of vitamin C. They assist vitamin C in maintaining collagen, the intercellular cement, in healthy condition. They increase the strength of the capillaries, and help to prevent hemorrhages and ruptures, while also building a protective barrier against infection.*
Montmorillonite (Trace mineral)
Consumed in proper ratios, minerals and trace minerals have a profound effect on human health: they transport life-giving oxygen to the body; aid in the assimilation of other nutrients; form building blocks such as amino acids, hormones, and proteins; and can even act as antioxidants. Basically your entire body—including your hair, nails, bones, blood and nerves—relies on major and trace minerals for its proper function.*
