PROPERTIES The vitamin C, comes to help in the elaboration and in the maintenance of the integrity of the collagen, as well as in the synthesis of the red globules and in the stabilization of the connective fabrics. Protecting blood vessels against damage caused by radicals (unstable oxygen molecules that, lost in the body, try to reproduce themselves with elements of our cells), it contributes to the maintenance of a good blood pressure and acts on bad cholesterol, favoring the increase of beneficial HDL, it is also known for its support to the immune system. From the numerous researches done on vitamin C, we can note that a vitamin C supplementation can reduce the risk of contracting a cold, favors the absorption of iron by the body, maintains a good blood level, which prevents cognitive disorders, reduces the uric acid level in the blood. Soy lecithin is one of the major components of soy, 100% vegetable, it allows the solubilization of fats in the blood by preventing their deposition on the artery walls, thus promoting the elimination of bad cholesterol (LDL) by the liver and the increase of good (HDL). Thanks to the phospholipids (molecules which constitute the membranes of the cells of our organization) which it contains, it contributes to the reinforcement of the concentration, the memory, the emotional balance and acts on the intellectual tiredness. It has anti-oxidant properties which intervene in the maintenance of the hydration and the elasticity of the skin. Also, soy lecithin is particularly indicated to prevent the formation of atheromatous plaques (deposits rich in cholesterol on the internal wall of the arteries), at the origin of a very widespread disease, atherosclerosis. Ginkgo is essentially known to promote blood circulation as a whole and to strengthen brain functions, mainly in case of senile dementia: it stimulates memory, helps concentration and reasoning. It is one of the most used plants against neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson and/or Alzheimer. It is known that ginkgo extract improves blood circulation by promoting the dilation of blood vessels, involving several active substances, including quercetin, bilobalides and ginkgolides, which also reduce blood viscosity and can protect nerve cells through their antioxidant effects. Standardized ginkgo extract is listed in the World Health Organization's ATC (Anatomical Therapeutical Chemical) classification as a drug for dementia, along with memantine and cholinesterase inhibitors. Vitamin E participates in the protection of cell membranes and red blood cells against oxidizing substances. It helps to eliminate abnormal blood clots and acts on the level of bad cholesterol. It is important to underline that antioxidants work in synergy with each other, vitamin E being liposoluble, it marries well with a water-soluble antioxidant such as vitamin C, because the latter recycles it and thus increases its effectiveness Some epidemiological studies have indicated that vitamin E reduces the risk of heart disease and cancer. Vitamin B5 is essential for the production of energy in the cells, for the transport of oxygen in the blood, as well as for the synthesis of fatty acids, cholesterol and sexual hormones. It is both provided by food and manufactured by the intestinal flora. A deficiency in vitamin B5 can lead to a loss of appetite, digestive disorders and even nervous disorders in the form of stress, headaches and increased irritability. Vitamin B2 riboflavin uses oxygen and is involved in the metabolism of amino acids, fatty acids and carbohydrates. It is also used in the production of red blood cells and antibodies. Vitamin B1 or (thiamine) contributes to food metabolism and the conversion of food into energy. It also plays a role in the transmission of the nervous message, and is therefore involved in the memorization process and in emotional balance. Vitamin B9 or folic acid is an additional support to the synthesis of our DNA, to the growth of our cells but also to the formation of red blood cells and amino acids. Selenium is an anti-oxidant trace element that is involved in the metabolism of free radicals and other substances produced by the oxidation of lipids in cell membranes, it seems to play an essential role in immune defenses and in the functioning of the thyroid. The amount of selenium contained in plants depends on the soil and varies according to geographical areas. Maltodextrin is a bulking agent (which gives consistency to a foodstuff without impacting its calorific value) resulting from the partial hydrolysis of a starch (found in cereals) or a starch (potato), incorporated in capsules Magnesium stearate is an anti-caking agent incorporated in the capsules, which ensures the fluidity of the preparation. Hypromellose (short for hydroxypropyl methylcellulose or HPMC) is an excipient used in the composition of the capsules.
A little history ... Vitamin C In ancient times, a serious disease called scurvy, affecting mainly sailors and all people deprived of fresh food for too long, gave rise to bone pain, gum hemorrhages but also strong anemia. In the 18th century, an English naval physician, James Lind, discovered that a few drops of orange or lemon juice taken by sailors every day protected them and eliminated the suffering of this disease. In 1928, the Hungarian biochemist Albert Szent Györgyi isolated a crystalline substance from lemon juice that he named ascorbic acid (vitamin C) in reference to scurvy. Its synthesis was written in 1933 by chemists Walter Norman Haworth and Tadeusz Reichstein. Soy lecithin Present in China for several millennia, this plant is part of the basic Asian diet (it is one of the so-called sacred grains, alongside rice, wheat, barley and millet). But soy is also the most widely used oilseed in the world, mainly as animal feed. The phytotherapeutic properties of soy have only recently been rediscovered in the West, since the 1990s in phytotherapy, although the plant was introduced in Europe as early as the 17th century. Ginkgo biloba is native to Asia, more particularly to Southeast China, and has been used in Chinese medicine for 4,000 years. This tree, which appeared well before the dinosaurs, is one of the oldest in the world. Being able to live up to 2,000 years, it survived the radiation caused by the Hiroshima bomb. Ginkgo was imported to the United States and Europe in the 18th century Vitamin E is a liposoluble (fat soluble) organic substance broken down into 8 organic forms. 4 tocopherols and 4 torotrienols. In 1938, the embryologist Herbert McLean Evans and Oliver Emerson isolated vitamin E from wheat germ oil. Erhard Fernholz determined its structure in 1938, but it was not until 1968 that it was recognized by the National Research Council of the United States as an essential nutrient.
