Folic acid lowers the risk of neural tube defects. Folate coenzymes play a vital role in DNA metabolism.
Beta carotene may have antioxidant activity.
Vitamin B1 plays an essential role in the metabolism of carbohydrates, a major source of energy in our cells. Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) is important for energy production and tissue repair. Riboflavin may also work in conjunction with iron for iron-deficiency anemia.
Nicotinamide, via its major metabolite NAD+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide), is involved in the production of energy, the synthesis of fatty acids, cholesterol and steroids and in signal transduction. It may also have antioxidant activity.
Vitamin B6 is required by the body to turn iron into hemoglobin, and to produce red blood cells.
Calcium is useful in maintaining strong, healthy bones. It is involved in blood clotting and the transmission of nerve impulses. It also aids in the absorption of many nutrients, especially vitamin B12.
Vitamin B12 is required for nucleoprotein and myelin synthesis, cell reproduction and the maintenance of erythropoiesis; it also plays a role in blood formation and is needed to form red blood cells in the marrow.
Vitamin D3 is important for the absorption of calcium from the stomach and for the functioning of calcium in the body. It can be beneficial to neonates, helping osteogenesis. Vitamin K1 has hemostatic activity and may have antiosteoporotic and antioxidant activities.
Biotin is necessary for the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. It may have antioxidant activity.
Copper may have antioxidant activity. It helps our body absorb and use iron to synthesize hemoglobin. It plays a role in maintaining the integrity of myelin.
Iron Polymaltose Complex (IPC) is used as a source of iron for iron deficiency anemia.
Docosahexaenoic acid is the predominant essential fatty acid in the human brain, which is vital for the development of the fetus's and infant's brain.
Arachidonic acid (ARA) is a polyunsaturated fatty acid that is present in the phospholipids (especially phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylinositides) of the body's cell membranes, and is highly enriched in the brain.
