    Vita Immune

    Health Benefits:

    The immune response is one of the body’s fundamental responses behind our natural
    defences. In order to reach its full potential, this mechanism needs essential ingredients
    such as selenium to protect our cells against oxidative stress. IMMUNITÉ also
    contains SOD.
    To help maintain normal function of the immune system, the body needs zinc, selenium
    and vitamin B12, all of which are contained in IMMUNITÉ.

    Ingredients:

    Maltodextrin, plant-based coating: hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, selenium-enriched
    yeast (i.e. 50 μg selenium equivalent to 90.9% of RDI**), Extramel®: 20 mg concentrated
    melon juice (Cucumis melo) in 280 IU* SOD-superoxide dismutase (hydrogenated palm oil),
    bulking agent: silicon dioxide, emulsifier: magnesium salts of fatty acids, cyanocobalamin
    (i.e. 2.5 μg vitamin B12 equivalent to 100% of RDI**) (medium: mannitol), pyridoxine
    hydrochloride (i.e. 1.40 mg vitamin B6 equivalent to 100% of RDI**), riboflavin (i.e. 1.4 mg
    vitamin B2 equivalent to 100% of RDI**), folic acid (i.e. 200 μg vitamin B9 equivalent to
    100% of RDI**).

    What and why is it in Vita For My Heart?

    S.O.D - Superoxide Dismutase : THE MELON HAS RECEIVED A PRECIOUS GIFT FROM NATURE.
    Its ability to withstand the passage of time and the aggressive effects of its environment for far longer than other melon varieties soon roused the curiosity of producers who were looking for ways of prolonging the lifespan of the melons they sold. But just why does this amazingly resistant melon stay green and just-picked fresh for far longer than other varieties ? What is its secret?
    It took scientists years of research before they finally discovered that the key to our melon’s longevity was SOD - SuperOxide Dismutase.


    WHAT IS SOD AND WHAT DOES IT DO ?
    SOD is an essential enzyme that all living beings – humans, animals and plants - produce naturally. Our Melon must have oxygen to transform the nutrients it draws from the earth and that it needs in order to grow and survive. Superoxide is produced during this transformation process. It belongs to a class of molecules known as free radicals which, although they are required in small quantities for the body to function correctly, trigger a whole cascade of disorders if they are not controlled.
    Nature provides the solution to this problem in a molecule known as SOD - SuperOxide Dismutase for short, which neutralizes the harmful effects of these free radicals. This is the secret of our melon : its juice contains high levels of SOD...
    A GIFT OF NATURE.

    SUPEROXYDE DISMUTASE A KEY MOLECULE INTEGRAL TO BIOLOGICAL BALANCE
    SOD - Superoxide dismutase is an essential enzyme that all living beings and organisms – humans, animals and plants – produce naturally, without which they could not survive.
    This major antioxidant enzyme is the driving force and the keystone of the antioxidant defence system.
    Following the “Omega 3” revolution in the fields of nutrition and healthcare, now has come the time of SOD.
    It must be noted that, for a number of years, we have been hearing a lot about antioxidants offered by fruits and vegetables consumed as part of our diet.
    Consequently, antioxidants now find themselves the centre of attention. SOD is the primary antioxidant, the very cornerstone of a complex and highly efficient enzymatic defence system. It all starts with oxygen, which is vital to sustain life. Oxygen is essential to transforming the food we ingest into energy.
    In the process of this transformation, 2% to 4% of the oxygen atoms will hold a single additional electron for a brief moment, thus making them eager during that period to get rid of this electron or share it with another molecule. This oxygen with an extra electron, known as the superoxide, is the first in a cascading production of a series of numerous free radicals.
    Such free radicals are necessary for the correct biological functioning of living organisms, as they trigger and stimulate fundamental reactions in the body. However, as with all stimulation, it is the intensity and rhythm that will determine the effects.
    In order to ensure this all remains harmonious, without degenerating into disorder and cacophony causing imbalances and illness, SOD will play the role of conductor in this orchestra of antioxidant instruments. This has all been scientifically proven and deserves a more detailed explanation...

    SELENIUM  - EFFECTS
    Selenium is a highly reputed nutrient whose health claims have been recognised by the
    European Union and the EFSA, which published a notice scientifically justifying certain
    claims.
    Selenium contributes to normal spermatogenesis, maintenance of healthy hair and nails,
    normal function of the immune system, normal thyroid function and protects cells against
    oxidative stress.
    The EFSA has scientifically justified claims relating firstly to hair and nails. It was proven
    that a selenium deficiency may cause problems, namely hair loss.
    Secondly, it demonstrated the effect of selenium as an “antioxidant to prevent oxidative
    stress”, beneficial to “proper thyroid function” and, lastly, the “immune system” claim.


    MECHANISM OF ACTION
    Selenium is an essential micronutrient for most species, including humans.
    It is made up of certain antioxidant enzymes, thus playing a part in fighting free radicals. It
    also has a stimulating effect on the immune system, generally contributing to the body’s
    immune response.
    The main role of selenium is antioxidant activity in the form of a glutathione peroxidase
    coenzyme, which is responsible for the detoxification of peroxides.

     

    VITAMIN B2
    Vitamin B2 is the most abundant vitamin in nature – both the animal and the plant world.
    Being water-soluble, it forces humans to regularly renew their intake to avoid deficiency. It
    is thus estimated that the intake of vitamin B2 should be equal to or greater than 1.4 mg a
    day. Vitamin B2, also known as riboflavin, is recognised by the EFSA (European Food Safety
    Authority) and the European Commission for the following:
    > production of energy and metabolism of iron
    > healthy fetal development
    > maintenance of healthy skin and mucus membranes
    > maintenance of normal vision
    > maintenance of normal red blood cells
    These effects are produced via the intake of products containing at least 0.21 mg of vitamin
    B2 for 100 g, 100 ml or per package.


    MECHANISM OF ACTION
    Its role within the body is therefore key and is reflected in multiple mechanisms of action. This vitamin
    acts in the form of two coenzymes – the flavin-containing enzymes that take part in the catabolism of
    fatty acids, the transformation of succinate into fumarate and the electron transport chain.
    It is absorbed in the three forms of vitamin B2 – riboflavin, riboflavin phosphate and flavin adenine
    dinucleotide. Riboflavin is absorbed in the upper part of the intestine, while riboflavin phosphate and
    flavin adenine dinucleotide are hydrolysed in the digestive tract.
    Like many vitamins, B2 is involved in the energy production mechanism. By promoting the transfer of
    electrons and hydrogen, riboflavin phosphate and flavin adenine dinucleotide enable the activation of
    certain enzymes involved in the breakdown and use of fatty acids, amino acids and carbohydrates. The
    products of this breakdown then serve as energy for the cells of the body.
    It also acts on red blood cells containing haemoglobin, helping them form and the formation of tissue
    known as “blood”.
    Vitamin B2 plays a recognised role in the protection and maintenance of vision (optic nerve integrity),
    mucus membranes and fundamental eye tissue.

    VITAMIN B6 - EFFECTS
    Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) is an essential vitamin for humans, but it is not produced by the human body.
    We therefore have to draw it from our food, presented in three different forms – pyridoxine, pyridoxal
    and pyridoxamine. Its active form in the body is known as pyridoxal-5’-phosphate, or PLP. Pyridoxine is
    absorbed in the small intestine and phosphorylated into active derivatives – pyridoxine-5’-phosphate
    and then pyridoxal-5’-phosphate.
    Principally stored by the liver in low quantities, daily intake is necessary.
    The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the European Commission have confirmed that
    vitamin B6 nutrient intake has a number of proven health benefits, contributing to the following:
    > normal metabolism of proteins and glycogen
    > normal function of the nervous system
    > normal formation of red blood cells
    > normal function of the immune system
    > regulation of hormone activity
    > normal metabolism of homocysteine
    > normal energy-yielding metabolism
    > normal psychological function
    > normal cysteine synthesis
    > reduction of tiredness and asthenia
    These effects are recognised via the intake of products containing at least 0.21 mg of vitamin B6 for
    100 g, 100 ml or per package.


    MECHANISM OF ACTION
    Vitamin B6 acts on various organs and is involved in numerous processes:
    > It plays a key role in glycogenolysis, which entails the breakdown of glycogen in the liver into glucose.
    In fact, when blood glucose levels fall, the liver uses its glycogen reserves and produces glucose, which
    it releases into the blood for it to benefit other organs and skeletal muscle having exhausted their own
    glycogen reserves. It is therefore a vital source of energy that enables better resistance to stress.
    > Vitamin B6 acts as a coenzyme in the form of pyridoxal phosphate in the metabolism of several amino
    acids (transamination and decarboxylation reactions) leading to the production of energy by amino acid
    oxidation.
    > It supports the transformation of tryptophan, an essential amino acid, into vitamin B3.
    > It plays a part in the synthesis of red blood cells and, with that, the formation of haemoglobin, combined
    with vitamins B9 and B12.
    > It is crucial for the synthesis of certain neurotransmitters such as adrenaline, dopamine and serotonin,
    a mood stabiliser.
    > It helps prevent the formation of homocysteine (a sulphur-containing amino acid) in the blood, most
    often combined with vitamins B9 and B12.
    > It plays a part in the synthesis of insulin and certain sex hormones.

     

    VITAMIN B9
    Vitamin B9 (folate) may appear in various forms – folate (the naturally occurring form of the vitamin)
    and folic acid (a synthetic compound of folates used in vitamin food supplements and fortified foods
    due to its higher stability). This vitamin, as a coenzyme, is recognised by the EFSA (European Food
    Safety Authority) for contributing to the following:
    > normal blood formation
    > normal homocysteine levels
    > normal function of the immune system
    > normal cell division
    > normal growth of the placenta during pregnancy
    > normal psychological function
    > normal synthesis of amino acids
    > reduction of tiredness and asthenia
    > reduction of the risk of neural tube defects (NTDs)
    Vitamin B9 is synthesised by humans via their bacteria in the intestinal flora, but in insufficient
    quantities to cover the body’s daily needs. Folic acid is quickly absorbed by the small intestine to then
    be diffused into all the tissue and fluids in the body and accumulates in the cerebrospinal fluid. It is
    mainly stored in the liver.


    MECHANISM OF ACTION
    Vitamin B9 acts as a coenzyme of enzymes involved in the metabolism of carbohydrates – the enzymes can
    only act in its presence and the vitamin B9 remains unchanged once the reaction is complete.
    It thus plays a role in the destruction of certain amino acids (histidine, tryptophan, glycine) and the synthesis
    of amino acids and proteins (including adenine and guanine, which are essential components of the nucleic
    acids DNA and RNA, as well as methionine from homocysteine).
    Vitamin B9 also helps reduce the risk of neural tube defects thanks to an intake of folate by supplementation,
    which increases maternal folate status.
    Furthermore, through its involvement in the synthesis of neurotransmitters such as serotonin, vitamin B9
    is necessary for the central nervous system and the immune system to function healthily.
    It helps prevent the formation of homocysteine (a sulphur-containing amino acid) in the blood, most
    often combined with vitamins B6 and B12. High concentrations of this substance are associated with an
    increased risk of cardiovascular disease and are toxic to neurons, representing a risk factor for Alzheimer’s,
    depression and schizophrenia.
    It is also involved in cellular reproduction and, consequently, growth.
    It also plays a key role in the synthesis of DNA through its involvement in the synthesis of purines, which
    are part of the composition of the nucleic acids DNA and RNA.

     

    VITAMIN B12
    Vitamin B12 actually groups together a family of substances – the most used being cyanocobalamin
    – which contain cobalt and are generally bright red. This vitamin is produced by the intestinal flora,
    but is principally provided by food. It is absorbed in the small intestine (partly by calcium) and, after
    binding to a protein, it is synthesised and secreted by the gastric mucosa. This transport protein is
    known as an “intrinsic factor” and vitamin B12 itself is known as such.
    It is subsequently stored in the liver, representing a considerable reserve capable of meeting the
    body’s needs for three to five years. Another part of vitamin B12 is also stored in the brain.
    In 2012, after analysing multiple studies, the EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) and the European
    Commission judged that products containing vitamin B12 could claim to contribute to the following:
    > normal energy-yielding metabolism
    > normal function of the nervous system
    > normal metabolism of homocysteine
    > normal mental function
    > formation of red blood cells
    > reduction of tiredness
    > normal function of the immune system
    > cell division
    In order to achieve this, products must contain at least 0.38 μg of vitamin B12 for 100 g, 100 ml or
    per package.


    MECHANISM OF ACTION
    In order to understand the effects of vitamin B12, we must first study how it works:
    > As a coenzyme, vitamin B12 plays a part in the reproduction of cells and their growth, namely those in
    the digestive tract, the nervous system and bone marrow.
    > It thus acts as a powerful anti-anaemic, responsible for the formation and quality of red blood cells in
    the bone marrow.
    > It also contributes to the healthy function of the nervous system, in particular via a positive effect on the
    myelin sheath protecting the nerves.
    > Vitamin B12 is involved in the synthesis of DNA.
    > It is essential for the synthesis of methionine and choline.
    > Vitamin B12 is necessary for the metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids and proteins, thus enabling
    production of energy.
    > It helps prevent the formation of homocysteine (a sulphur-containing amino acid) in the blood, most
    often combined with vitamins B6 and B9. High concentrations of this substance are associated with an
    increased risk of cardiovascular disease and are toxic to neurons, representing a risk factor for Alzheimer’s,
    depression and schizophrenia.
    > It is essential for the healthy function of the brain by increasing reaction time.
