FEBICO Zinc Spirulina contains trace element zinc which makes to bioavailability of zinc higher. Zinc has numerous functions in the body. This mineral serves as a cofactor for over 300 enzymes in the body, especially those involved with the metabolism of protein, carbohydrate, fat and alcohol. Zinc also is essential for protein synthesis, integrity of cell membranes, maintenance of DNA and RNA, tissue growth and repair, wound healing, taste acuity, prostaglandin production, bone mineralization, proper thyroid function, blood clotting and cognitive functions. Considering this nutrient's role in growth and development, zinc is an integral mineral for fetal development and sperm production.
FEBICO Iron Enriched Spirulina is especially produced to suit your iron requirement. Iron is a mineral needed for all functions in the body. Most of the iron in our body is found in red blood cells in the form of hemoglobin that carries oxygen from our lungs to all parts of our body. Iron is essential for not only the transport of oxygen but also for the storage of oxygen in the blood and muscles. Iron is better absorbed when it is taken with vitamin C and is better absorbed from meat, fish and poultry than from plant sources. Other factors that reduce irons absorption include calcium supplements; zinc supplements, oxalates found in green vegetables, phytates, found in whole grains and tannins, a substance in tea and coffee. Iron is a mineral found in every cell of the body. It is vital for good health and for our mental and physical well-beings.
FEBICO Selenium Spirulina contains trace element selenium, which makes the bioavailability of selenium higher. Selenium is a component of glutathione peroxidases which are primarily responsible for reducing peroxide free radicals that include lipid peroxide formation in cell membranes. Reduction of peroxides formed by oxidation of membrane phospholipids breaks the auto-oxidative chain reaction that damages cell membranes. Selenium-dependent antioxidant protection of cell membrane phospholipids is synergistic with vitamin E. Selenium also has a role in prostaglandin synthesis by protecting the oxidative state of lipid intermediates formed during cyclooxygenase reactions which determines the balance of the end products and whether proaggregatory, pro-inflammatory or anti-aggregatory, anti-inflammatory responses will dominate.
FEBICO Chromium Enriched Spirulina contains trace element chromium, which makes the bioavailability of chromium higher. Chromium is a mineral that works with insulin in the metabolism of sugar and stabilization of blood sugar levels. Chromium also cleans the arteries by reducing cholesterol & triglyceride levels; helps transport amino acids to where the body needs them; and helps control the appetite. Medical research has shown that persons with low levels of chromium in their bodies are more susceptible to having cancer and heart problems, and of becoming diabetic. A deficiency of chromium may result in glucose intolerance in diabetics; atherosclerosis, heart disease, depressed growth, obesity, and/or tiredness.
