成分


鈣(乳酸,硫酸鹽):557毫克
鈣質存在於牛奶、芝士、乳酪、墨西哥玉米餅、大白菜、羽衣甘藍和西蘭花中。鈣質是重要的礦物質,具有多項生物功能。鈣質主要以氫氧基磷灰石的形式,Ca10 (PO4)6 (OH)2,存在於骨骼之中。氫氧基磷灰石大約佔骨骼重量40%。骨骼在結構上明顯需要鈣質。骨骼也是一個儲存鈣質的地方。鈣質是構成骨骼與牙齒的要素,同時促進正常的肌肉收縮、神經傳導、心跳、凝血及腺體分泌,有助產生能量,維護正常的免疫功能。

鈣質對健康的骨骼與牙齒是不可或缺的。要維持骨骼密度,每天必須攝取足夠的鈣質。鈣經證實有助減緩女性的經前症候群(PMS)。*對於促進心血管健康,鈣也能發揮作用。

鎂(檸檬酸鹽、甘氨酸鹽、碳酸鹽):450毫克
女性身體根據不同年齡、體重和身體健康狀況,都有獨特需求。有些女性受到經前症候群的影響,有些女性因更年期而需要幫助,而所有女性都需要更多能量。Isotonix Essentials™女士營養沖飲以甘胺酸鹽的形式提供所需的鎂,能幫助支援認知健康。鎂是骨骼礦化的元素之一,促進成人體內鉀和鈣的正常代謝。鎂有助維持體內鉀、磷及鈣的正常含量。鎂也能促進鈣的正常移動,將它運送到細胞內進一步利用。支援肌肉與神經組織的正常運作。鎂也能促進蛋白質、核酸、核苷酸、環磷酸腺苷、脂肪以及碳水化合物的正常合成。

鎂同時也是健康的骨骼和牙齒所不可或缺,並有助健康的肌肉發育。鎂、鈣及維他命D三者共同有助維持骨骼健康。鎂同時維持正常的血小板功能,因此有助促進健康的心血管功能。
鎂能支援新陳代謝過程中食物能量的釋放、體溫的調節與正常的神經功能。重要的是,鎂也可以促進健康的骨骼、牙齒、和維持正常的肌肉發展。鎂、鈣及維他命D三者共同促進骨骼強健。

富含鎂的食物包括糙米雜糧、堅果和綠色蔬菜。綠色葉菜類是鎂的豐富來源,因為其中含有葉綠素。肉類、澱粉類、牛奶和精製食物含較少量的鎂。近期的研究顯示美國的飲食中普遍缺乏鎂。

鉀(碳酸氫鈉):320毫克
鉀是儲存在肌肉中的電解質。富含鉀的食物包括香蕉、橙、哈蜜瓜、牛油果、生菠菜、椰菜和芹菜。鉀是必要的宏量礦物質,能幫助維持體液平衡。鉀同時促進各種生化和生理過程。鉀也促進神經脈衝傳導、心臟、骨骼與平滑肌的收縮、能量的產生和核酸的合成。
在1928年,首次有人提出攝取大量的鉀能幫助維持心血管健康。鉀有助正常的肌肉放鬆,同時還能促進肝糖和蛋白質的合成,是促進正常心跳的電解質。在代謝過程中,鉀也能促進蛋白質、脂肪與碳水化合物的正常能量釋放。鉀有助維持正常的水份平衡,支援運動後的恢復,並且排走體內廢物。鈉與鉀是維持身體液體穩態平衡中最重要的兩個離子。

維他命C(抗壞血酸):109毫克
維他命C又稱為抗壞血酸,屬於水溶性維他命,具有多種生物功能。維他命C存在於椒類(甜椒、青椒、紅椒、紅辣椒及青辣椒)、柑橘類水果、結球甘藍、椰菜花、高麗菜、羽衣甘藍、芥蘭、芥菜、西蘭花、菠菜、番石榴、奇異果、黑加侖子及士多啤梨。堅果類及穀類亦含有微量的維他命C,維他命C的活性很容易因烹煮而受損。 

維他命C支援正常的組織修復與癒合,以及多巴胺的生成。維他命C維護健全的免疫系統,促進心血管健康,並且提供抗氧化功效。人體無法自行製造及儲存維他命C。因此,維他命C必需要透過飲食和營養補充品而取得。

維他命E乙酸酯(d-α-生育酚乙酸酯):53毫克 
維他命E最佳的飲食來源有蔬菜油、人造牛油、堅果、種籽、牛油果和小麥胚芽。紅花油富含大量的維他命E(1⁄4  杯就含有約⅔ 的每日建議攝取量),而粟米油和大豆油的只有少量。維他命E實際上為生育酚和生育三烯酚相關複合物的家族。維他命E於30年代初期被發現。維他命E有天然或合成的形式。絕大多數天然和合成的維他命與礦物質是相同。然而,天然的維他命E在體內的吸收與保留較佳。

Isotonix Essentials女士營養沖飲當中含有天然的α-生育醇,又名d-α-生育醇。合成形式最常見於膳食補充品。消費者以得到最大好處為首,最好選擇含有優質(且較昂貴)天然的產品。對在執行體重管理的人通常會注重飲食中脂肪的攝取量,他們由於減少攝取脂肪含量較高的食物,因此有可能也減少維他命E的攝取。

補充維他命E的好處來自其對於免疫健康的支援及抗氧化成分的活性。維他命E能保護細胞膜免於自由基的傷害。它亦有助正常的癒合功能,並維護健康的心血管系統。維他命E是體內最有效的脂溶性抗氧化物之一。攝取大量維他命E顯示能促進正常的血小板功能。

菸鹼酸(維他命B3):30毫克 N.E.
菸鹼酸支持消化系統、皮膚,與神經的正常機能。與維他命B1、B2協同作用能促進將食物轉換為能量。菸鹼酸多存在於奶製品、家禽、魚類、瘦肉、堅果、蛋、豆類、添加營養的麵包以及早餐穀類中。

D-泛酸鈣(維他命B5):25毫克
泛酸(B5)促進大腦中適當的神經傳導活性。泛酸也被稱為抗壓維他命。

松樹皮萃取物(碧容健®,Pycnogenol®):20毫克
碧容健® (Pycnogenol®)是由海岸松樹皮萃取的天然植物萃取物,這種海岸松只生長在法國西南部沿岸的加斯科尼地區。這片不受污染的天然樹林就是碧容健®的唯一來源。碧容健®是天然產品巿場上受到最廣泛研究的成份之一。發表的研究報告顯示,碧容健®以天然方式結合原花青素、生物類黃酮及有機酸,對身體健康有許多好處。松樹皮萃取物結合原花青素、生物類黃酮及有機酸。

此萃取物擁有三項基本特質:這是一種強效的抗氧化物,選擇性地與膠原蛋白及彈力蛋白結合,以及支援正常的製造內皮細胞一氧化氮,而一氧化氮能促進血管的正常舒張。

碧容健®是最強效的自由基清道夫之一,能對抗許多自由基。它有助支援健康的血小板活動,緩解輕度經痛與腹痛,維持關節靈活,提升心血管健康,促進健康的生殖機能,保持健康氣色。

碧容健®為Horphag Research, Ltd.的註冊商標,受到美國專利法保護,專利號碼:4,698,360、5,720,956與6,372,266。

葡萄籽萃取物:12.5毫克
葡萄籽萃取物主要提取自紅葡萄(非白葡萄)的籽,含有大量原花色素(OPCs)。葡萄籽富含具強效抗氧化功效的多酚類複合物。

紅酒萃取物:12.5毫克
紅酒萃取物是強大的抗氧化劑。它存在於葡萄藤、根、籽及莖,在葡萄皮中含量最高。紅酒萃取物的抗氧化特質能鞏固微血管、動脈和靜脈,有助維持健康的血液循環和提升整體心血管健康。

1990年代末期,科學家注意到法國人的一個現象。研究發現,法國某些省份的居民經常食用高脂肪食物和飲用紅酒,卻仍能維持心血管健康。科學家得出結論:紅酒所具有的保護特性多年來幫助法國人維持心臟健康。後續的科學研究更進一步證實,紅酒中所含的OPCs對維護心臟和血管的健康大為有益。

歐洲藍莓萃取物:12.5毫克
歐洲藍莓萃取物取自歐洲一種普遍的矮灌木的葉與果實,這種植物與藍莓非常相似。成熟的歐洲藍莓萃取物含有稱為花青素的類黃酮色素,是強效的抗氧化物。科學研究證明,歐洲藍莓萃取物支援健康的視力及靜脈組織,歐洲藍莓萃取物鞏固微血管、動脈和靜脈,有助維持健康的血液循環。

柑橘萃取物(生物類黃酮):12.5毫克
生物類黃酮是存在於部份植物的抗氧化物,也是吸收紫外線輻射的光線過濾器,可保護容易受損的DNA鏈以及其他重要的大分子。現已發現生物類黃酮可改善心血管健康,具有抗炎作用,同時鞏固微血管、動脈和靜脈,繼而維持良好的血液循環。

鐵質(焦磷酸鹽,SunActive® Fe):10毫克
鐵質主要存在於柑橘類、蕃茄、豆類、加添營養的麵包、如早餐穀物等穀類(非血紅素鐵質來源)。牛肉、肝臟、內臟和家禽類則是血紅素鐵質的來源。血紅素鐵質比非血紅素鐵質更容易被人體吸收。鐵是很重要的微量礦物質。鐵也是製造肌紅蛋白的元素之一,此種蛋白質則是協助將血液中的氧氣運送到全身的肌肉組織。鐵能促進紅血球生成。

鐵支援眾多重要的生化過程和酵素系統,其中包括能量的代謝,神經傳導物質的製造(羥色胺和多巴胺),膠原蛋白質的形成,以及免疫系統的運作。兒童、成年男子以及年長的婦女比較不需要在飲食中添加含鐵的營養補充品,在食用任何含鐵的營養補充品前,應該徵詢醫生的意見(以免食用過多的鐵)。鐵的功能包括協助傳遞氧氣到身體各部位,因此可增加運動量,提升免疫系統功能,增加能量水準,並支援正常製造神經傳導素及膠原蛋白。

SunActive Fe®為Taiyo International, Inc.的註冊商標。

維他命B6(吡哆醇鹽酸鹽、磷酸吡多醛):(8毫克)
維他命B6的主要食物來源是家禽、魚類、全穀類和香蕉。維他命B6支援蛋白質和氨基酸的代謝,幫助維持適當的體液平衡。維他命B6也有助維護健康的紅血球與白血球細胞,對於維持整體健康至關重要。維他命B6促進血紅蛋白的正常合成(血紅蛋白是紅血球的蛋白質部分,負責將氧氣輸送到身體各處)。由於維他命B6參與腦與神經細胞中神經傳導物質的合成,因此可作為增進心理機能,尤其是支援情緒的營養素。運動員的營養補充品常會加入維他命B6,因為能促進肝糖轉變成葡萄糖,給予肌肉組織能量。維他命B6與葉酸一起食用時能夠幫助維持正常的血漿同半胱胺酸,同半胱胺酸則能促進良好的新血管健康。維他命B6應該加入其他維他命B群,以達到最佳效果。

玻尿酸(玻尿酸鈉):7.5毫克
玻尿酸或透明質酸是一種醣胺聚醣,廣泛分布於結締、上皮及神經組織,並且經常用於護膚品。它是構成細胞外間質的要素之一,促進健康的細胞再生與移動。玻尿酸富含於細胞外間質內,促進組織流動、健康的細胞生成與移動、以及數項細胞表面受體的交互作用。因為玻尿酸主要存在於皮膚與軟骨,所以能維護關節健康。玻尿酸也顯示能促進健康的軟骨細胞。玻尿酸也可支援正常的癒合功能。

核黃素(維他命B2):4.5毫克
維他命B2是水溶性維他命,幫助身體正常處理氨基酸和脂肪,活化維他命B6和葉酸,促進碳水化合物轉換成三磷酸腺苷(ATP),以作身體運作的能量。維他命B2亦能促進紅血球生成,並且維護神經系統、呼吸系統、抗體製造及人體發育等正常功能。

鹽酸硫胺素(維他命B1):3.5毫克
鹽酸硫胺素促進正常的碳水化合物代謝和神經功能。鹽酸硫胺素為維持健康的神經系統所必需,它可支援製造對肌肉功能相當重要的神經傳遞質。它支持消化過程,增加能量,並且保持清晰的精神狀態。

鋅(乳酸鹽):3.75毫克
鋅是一種必要的礦物質,構成300多種酵素的元素,來支援正常癒合、成年人生育、兒童生長、蛋白質合成、細胞繁殖、視力、免疫功能,以及抵禦自由基等。

葉酸[也稱作(6S)-5-甲基四氫葉酸、葡萄糖胺鹽、Quatrefolic®]:837微克
葉酸主要存在於水果及蔬菜。深綠色蔬菜、橙、橙汁、豆類、豌豆和啤酒酵母是提供葉酸的最佳來源。葉酸在提升B12補充品效用方面擔當關鍵的角色。這二種維他命B協力合作,維持正常的紅血球細胞。葉酸有助氨基酸及蛋白質的正常使用,並促進製造脫氧核糖核酸DNA與核糖核酸RNA物質的合成,是身體所有功能必需的。科學研究發現當維他命B12與葉酸一起運作時,能支援正常的半胱胺酸水平。這有助支持健康的心血管與神經系統。

非活性的葉酸(folate)必須要經過幾次化學變化才會有代謝活性,供身體利用。活性葉酸有高生物可利用性,是高代謝活性的葉酸。活性葉酸不需要二氫葉酸還原酵素的作用才能有活性,所以不會受抑制此種酵素的物質與草藥影響。有些人因基因變異(MTHRF基因)使得身體中的葉酸含量較少,而活性葉酸則不像非活性葉酸,受這種基因的影響。

Quatrefolic®是(6S)-5-甲基四氫葉酸的葡萄糖胺鹽,是活性最強的葉酸鹽,這是因為它的結構上類似於還原的活性葉酸。因為這種形式自然存在於體內,所以更具有生物可利用性,不需要在體內經過代謝。

Quatrefolic®為Gnosis S.p.A.的註冊商標,受到美國專利法保護,專利號碼7,947,662。

維他命A(20%β-胡蘿蔔素):600 微克 R.A.E.
維他命A是脂溶性維他命。維他命的來源包括動物內臟(如肝臟和腎臟)、蛋黃、牛油、紅蘿蔔汁、南瓜、番薯、菠菜、桃子、強化奶製品和鱈魚肝油。維他命A屬於視黃醇、視黃醛和β-胡蘿蔔素等複合物家族。β-胡蘿蔔素亦是維他命A原,當身體有額外需求時,便會轉化成維他命A。全身的組織皆需要維他命A才能正常生長及修護。維他命A維護良好的視力,促進骨骼正常成長,並且提供抗氧防禦,增強身體的免疫系統。

每日口服β-胡蘿蔔素、維他命C、維他命E及鋅,可維護眼睛健康。

生物素:525微克
生物素屬於維他命B家族。維他命B群是重要的輔因子,促進脂肪、碳水化合物及蛋白質正常進行新陳代謝。生物素的天然食物來源包括蛋黃、花生、牛肝、牛奶(10微克/杯)、早餐穀類、杏仁及啤酒酵母。生物素是數種酵素不可或缺的一部分,做為與能量代謝有關的輔酵素(例如丙酮酸羧化酶)。細菌在腸道內製造微量的生物素,被人體吸收利用。生物素主要的角色包括強化頭髮與指甲、增加活力。

甲鈷胺(維他命B12):126 微克
維他命B12(鈷胺素)是一種天然存在於動物製品中的細菌產物,在肝臟等內臟含量較多,在花生與味噌和天貝等豆類發酵製品中也有少量的維他命B12。素食者必須使用維他命B12補充品以維持最佳的健康狀態。維他命B12在攝取後儲存於肝臟和其他組織內,以供日後使用。維他命B12支援正常的細胞修復持,特別是神經系統、骨髓及消化道的細胞。維他命B12支援同半胱胺酸的正常代謝(是在體內形成的一種氨基酸)。正常的同半胱胺酸水平對維持心血管健康很重要。缺乏葉酸、維他命B6或維他命B12可能會導致過量的同半胱胺酸。葉酸和維他命B12會以活性輔酵素的形式,幫助維持血液中正常的同半胱胺酸於水平。

甲基氰鈷胺是維他命B12在人體存在的天然形態之一。肝臟必須將氰鈷胺素(營養補充品中最常見的維他命B12型態)轉換成鈷胺素才由人體適當的使用。鈷胺素比非活性型態的維他命B12更有效。甲基氰鈷胺亦可促進S-腺苷甲硫胺酸(SAMe)形成,SAMe是對一種情緒具有正面影響的營養素。

碘(碘化鉀):75微克
碘存在於大部分的海鮮及含碘食鹽。這種微量元素可支援超過一百種酵素系統,包括能量製造、神經功能、以及頭髮和皮膚的生長。

維他命D3(膽鈣化醇):25 微克(1000 國際單位)
大多數人獲得維他命D的主要途徑是恆常的陽光接觸。維他命D的飲食來源包括加入維他命D的牛奶(每杯含100國際單位)、鱈魚肝油、富含脂肪的魚類(例如鮭魚),也少量存在於蛋黃與肝臟中。

維他命D能幫助吸收鈣質和磷,並協助製造幾種有助於鈣質吸收和儲存的蛋白質。維他命D與鈣兩者共同促進骨骼強健。維他命D有助將造骨細胞中的鈣質運送至細胞外液和腎臟,也可促進腎小管對鈣與磷的再吸收。維他命D亦有助於腸上皮細胞吸收飲食中的鈣和磷,及支援皮膚細胞的正常生長。
