D3 is highly important in supporting the immune system’s health and protecting the bones. It is a known fact that without this nutrient, Calcium cannot be absorbed in sufficient amounts, which may lead to bone loss. Normal levels of this substance prevent the risk of rickets in children, a condition which manifests itself by soften bones. Rickets may lead to increased number of fractures and deformity of the bone. In adults, deficiency of the nutrient may lead to a similar condition called osteomalacia.
The formula also contains five of the eight nutrients from the B complex. B1 and B2 are essential to maintaining a healthy heart, nerves, and muscles, and B3 is important to regulating the nervous and digestive systems and increase energy levels. Furthermore, B12 assists in normal growth and development while improving memory, and B6 is needed for optimal neurotransmission. B9 helps in the production and maintenance of a healthy DNA, lowers heart disease risk and prevents the cancer of colon, as some recently published studies seem to indicate. The formula contains 7 of the eight nutrients.
