Benefits of Vitamins and Minerals
Vitamins are essential to sustain life and we must get
them from our natural foods or dietary supplements. The nutrition they
provide helps people feel better, more energetic, and assist the body
with normal functions; vitamins and minerals are necessary for our
growth, vitality and well-being.
The benefits of vitamins and minerals are many, but they
are no replacement for food. A vitamin or mineral has no caloric or
energy value by itself, but when taken as a dietary supplement to your
daily food intake, they can help supplement your daily diet by balancing out the deficiencies of
improper eating habits,
overcooked foods, and non-nutritive processed foods.
addition to vitamins, your body
needs minerals to aid in the assimilation of the vitamins. Minerals
help accelerate the billions of chemical reactions occurring in your
body all the time. Some help in the efficient metabolization of
proteins, fat, and carbohydrates. Others help regulate the utilization
of certain vitamins. Minerals actually become components of the body
structure - bones, cartilage, toenails, and fingernails and they
contribute toward hardness and strength.
important to remember that
nutrients are essential for energy, proper functioning of the organs,
utilization of food, and cell growth: carbohydrates, proteins, fats,
vitamins, minerals and water. These nutrients are utilized by the body
through the digestive process, which simplifies the nutrients via
enzymatic actions that break the nutrients down into smaller chemical
fragments. These are then absorbed through the walls of the digestive
tract and eventually enter the bloodstream to be utilized by the body.
BioMins was developed with close attention to over 20 vitamins and
minerals along with beneficial herbs recommended for daily
consumption. BioMins also contains ChromeMate and L-OptiZinc
the worlds most bio-available forms of chromium and zinc.
What Is ChromeMate?
(generically called chromium
nicotinate, chromium polynicotinate or niacin-bound chromium) is a
patented oxygen-coordinated niacin-bound chromium complex that plays an
important role in proper insulin function, maintenance of healthy blood
sugar and cholesterol levels, normal energy production, and promotion
of healthy body weight.
What Does ChromeMate Do?
with exercise and a sensible diet, ChromeMate helps:
• Maintain healthy body weight and promotes
normal energy metabolism*
• Maintain healthy cholesterol levels and
promotes cardiovascular health*
• Promote normal insulin
function and maintains healthy blood sugar levels*
How Is ChromeMate
is a unique, patented
niacin-bound chromium complex that significantly increases the
bioavailability and biological activity of chromium. Studies have shown
that ChromeMate is 18-times more bioactive than other forms of
niacin-bound chromium and, in animal models used to evaluate
bioavailability in humans, is absorbed and retained more than 600%
greater than chromium chloride and 300% greater than chromium
** Additional clinical (human)
sub-clinical (animal) studies have shown that ChromeMate lowers serum
cholesterol and improves HDL (good) cholesterol levels, lowers blood
pressure, reduces body weight, increases lean body mass and promotes
proper insulin function in the body. One study showed that ChromeMate
plus exercise in obese women resulted in significant loss of body
weight, while chromium picolinate did not. Another study in obese human
subjects showed that ChromeMate reduced body fat, while sparing lean
What Is L-OptiZinc?
is a unique, patented
of methionine-bound zinc, an essential trace mineral required for
numerous vital cell functions, including growth and development,
reproduction, digestion, and for proper brain, nerve, vision and immune
function. As an antioxidant (similar to vitamins E, C, and
beta-carotene), L-OptiZinc neutralizes harmful free radicals, which may
cause cell death and damage in the body.*
What Does L-OptiZinc Do?
• Promotes proper immune function
• Promotes proper nerve
• Promotes reproduction,
growth and development
• Promotes proper digestion
• Promotes eye health
• Promotes prostate health
• Promotes healthy skin, hair
• Helps prevent the effects of
• Promotes healthy
How Does L-OptiZinc Work?
is an essential trace
involved in numerous enzyme systems the body needs to keep healthy and
fit. L-OptiZinc is a patented 1:1 complex of zinc and methionine,
amino acid best absorbed by the body. Studies show that L-OptiZinc is
absorbed better, retained longer and are more effective than other zinc
Are There Any Side Effects?
doses of zinc have been
interfere with copper absorption and, when taken on an empty stomach,
have been known to cause stomach upset. OptiZinc and L-OptiZinc do not
interfere with copper absorption.
