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.

In 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.

It's 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 which are the worlds most bio-available forms of chromium and zinc.

What Is ChromeMate?

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?

Combined 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 Different?

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 picolinate.

** Additional clinical (human) and 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 muscle mass.

What Is L-OptiZinc?

L-OptiZinc is a unique, patented form 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 function
• Promotes reproduction, growth and development
• Promotes proper digestion
• Promotes eye health
• Promotes prostate health
• Promotes healthy skin, hair and nails
• Helps prevent the effects of premature aging
• Promotes healthy testosterone levels

How Does L-OptiZinc Work?

Zinc is an essential trace mineral 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, the amino acid best absorbed by the body. Studies show that L-OptiZinc is absorbed better, retained longer and are more effective than other zinc supplements tested.

Are There Any Side Effects?

High doses of zinc have been known to 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.
