VITAMIN & SUPPLEMENTS

Vitamins are nutrients that your body requires to function properly. 

Very broadly speaking, vitamins are a group of substances that your body needs for normal cell function, growth, and development. Your body needs them but can’t make them on its own, so you have to get them from food or supplements.

You should get your vitamins primarily from food. But there are some cases where a vitamin supplement is needed. If you’re unsure about whether you need a supplement, ask our anti-aging doctor.

 

N-Acetyl Cysteine

N-Acetyl Cysteine is an essential precursor of glutathione, which is a crucial facilitator of the liver detoxification process. It helps in detoxifying residual toxins and improves liver function. It also improves the skin tone.

 

Alpha Lipoic Acid

Alpha Lipoic Acid is a potent antioxidant which slows down the degeneration process of the body. It is capable of detoxification and improving skin tone. The antioxidant capability of alpha lipoic acid is 5 times stronger than Coenzyme Q10 and is up to 50 times stronger than Vitamin E (tocopherol) and Vitamin C (ascorbic acid). Alpha lipoic acid can be easily absorbed into the bloodstream.

 

Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 is an essential vitamin for the nervous system. It also supports red blood cell synthesis, thus is vital for the prevention of anemia. Sufficient vitamin B12 supports memory and cognition, as well as prevents cardiovascular disease. It also helps in stress management.

 

Vitamin B5

Vitamin B5 is an essential vitamin for the metabolism as well as the nervous system and the immune system. Deficiency of vitamin B5 may lead to allergy, arthritis, stress, insomnia, peripheral neuropathy, and skin problem.

 

Vitamin B9 (Folic Acid)

Vitamin B9 (Folic Acid) is crucial for the synthesis of red blood cell together with vitamin B12. It also involves neural function and cell cycle. Folic acid should be supplemented in those who have infection, anemia, pregnancy, and arthritis. Deficiency of folic acid can lead to incomplete development, early grey hair, lethargy, forgetfulness, and premature aging.
