    Background


    Vita Complete chewable tablet is complete balance of all essential vitamins and minerals required for children to maintain optimal health. A well-balanced diet should provide most of the vitamins children need to stay healthy and prevent disease. Vitamin D is the only exception. Trouble is, very few children eat right every day. Biogenique Vita Complete chewable tablet helps to bridge nutrient gaps for kids when even the best eating plan or poor appetite, changing nutritional needs, or less-than-healthy food choices can fall short of meeting your child’s dietary recommendations. 

    Biogenique Structurally Active-Orthogenic (SAO) technology


    Biogenique SAO technology formulates Vita Complete chewable tablet with essential organic nutrients; vitamins, dietary minerals and nutritional elements that are necessary in small amounts for normal functioning and good health. SAO technology helps to design formula where each vitamin and mineral is included at a dose below the tolerable upper level. It contains low levels of vitamin A and beta carotene as well as iron, calcium with vitamin D3 (the form similar to what body synthesizes when exposed to sunlight), essential fatty acids and all other nutrients meeting the standards of Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA). 
    Biogenique Vita Complete gives everything your child needs, bridging their nutritional gaps. 

    Our research says,
    Vitamins: Vitamins do not share a common chemistry, but they do share certain characteristics. Unlike carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, vitamins are not sources of energy. Instead, vitamins are involved in the body's metabolism, cell production, tissue repair, and other vital processes. Vitamins are either fat soluble or water soluble.
    • Fat-soluble vitamins, which include A, D, E, and K, are stored in the liver and used up by the body very slowly. Because the body stores fat-soluble vitamins, they can be dangerous when taken in large amounts.
    • Water-soluble vitamins include vitamin C and the B vitamins. The body uses these vitamins very quickly. Excess amounts are removed in the urine.
    Minerals: Minerals are involved in a variety of functions in the body. Some of these include structural components of the skeleton (calcium and phosphorus), oxygen transport (iron), nerve transmission (sodium, potassium, and chlorine), and component of enzymes (zinc, copper, and manganese). Classification of minerals is based on the amounts needed in the diet. Macro minerals are minerals normally present at greater levels in the body or needed in relatively large amounts. These include calcium, phosphorus, sodium, chlorine, magnesium, potassium, and sulfur. Micro minerals or trace elements are normally present at low levels in the body or needed in very small amounts. Some of these include copper, iron, manganese, iodine, zinc, and cobalt.

     

    SAO Analysis


    Vitamin A:
    Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin important for normal vision, the immune system, and reproduction. Vitamin A also helps the heart, lungs, kidneys, and other organs work properly. Preformed vitamins (active form of vitamin A) in Vita Complete chewable tablet are readily available for utilization. They do not depend on bile or fat in the intestines for their absorption Excessive intake of vitamin A appears to accelerate liver injury in people with alcoholism. In addition, relatively high intake of vitamin A has been associated with increased risk of osteoporosis. 

    Vitamin C:
    Vitamin C in form of ascorbic acid in Vita Complete is essential to perform important functions in the body. Even in small amounts it can protect indispensable molecules in the body, such as proteins, lipids (fats), carbohydrates from damage by free radicals. Ascorbic acid is required for the synthesis of collagen, an important structural component of blood vessels, tendons, ligaments, and bones. It also plays an important role in the synthesis of the neurotransmitter, norepinephrine. Neurotransmitters are critical to brain function and are known to affect mood. 

    Vitamin D:
    Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) in Vita Complete is natural form of vitamin D similar to what body synthesizes when exposed to sunlight. It helps to maintain normal levels of serum vitamin D in your body even when exposure to UVB radiation is insufficient. Being “D-ficient” may increase the risk of a host of chronic diseases, such as osteoporosis, heart disease, hypertension (high blood pressure), cancer, several autoimmune diseases and multiple sclerosis, as well as infectious diseases, such as tuberculosis and even the seasonal flu. Vitamin D may provide protection from osteoporosis. Rickets and osteomalacia are classic vitamin D deficiency diseases. 

    Vitamin E:
    Vitamin E (Alpha-tocopherol) is the most active form in human body and of greatest nutritional interest. The main function of alpha-tocopherol in humans appears to be that of an antioxidant. Alpha-tocopherol, is uniquely suited to intercept free radicals and thus prevent a chain reaction of lipid destruction. Vitamin E deficiency has been observed in individuals with severe malnutrition, genetic defects affecting the alpha-tocopherol transfer protein, and fat malabsorption syndromes. 

    B group Vitamins:
    The B vitamins are a chemically related family of nutrients that work as a team. It is combination of officially recognized group of eight essential B vitamins. Some of these nutrients help metabolize carbohydrates, proteins and fats for energy and others support tissue and red blood cell formation. To get the most benefits from any of B’s vitamin you need all of them. 

    Calcium:
    Calcium is another important mineral, and it is necessary for healthy bones and teeth. Calcium, when alone is one of the most difficult elements for the body to digest, absorb and utilize. Vita Complete provides all co-factors of Calcium including vitamin D3, magnesium, potassium and few traces of selenium, zinc, copper and boron required for proper absorption and utilization of calcium in the body. A well-balanced formulation of calcium along with essential elements for maximum benefits. Calcium plays a role in mediating the constriction and relaxation of blood vessel (vasoconstriction and vasodilation), nerve impulse transmission, muscle contraction, and the secretion of hormones like insulin. 

    Zinc:
    Zinc is an essential trace mineral, next to iron found in body. It is necessary for the functioning of different enzymes and plays a vital role in a large number of biological processes. Zinc is a cofactor for the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD) and is in a number of enzymatic reactions involved in carbohydrate and protein metabolism. Numerous aspects of cellular metabolism are zinc-dependent. On the cellular level, the function of zinc can be divided into three categories: 1) catalytic, 2) structural, and 3) regulatory. 

    Iron
    Children and adolescents need the mineral iron to prevent anemia. Those most at risk of iron deficiency are infants who are not given extra iron after six months of age (usually in the form of an iron fortified infant cereal), and babies who drink low-iron formula, cow's milk or goats milk. Adolescent girls are also at risk of anemia once they begin having their periods. 

    Scientific Evidence


    Benefits of Vitamin and Mineral Supplements

    When the food on the plate falls short and doesn’t include essential nutrients like calcium, potassium, vitamin D, and vitamin B12, some of the nutrients many children don’t get enough of, a supplement can help take up the nutritional slack. Vitamin and mineral supplements can help prevent deficiencies that can contribute to chronic conditions. Numerous studies have shown the health benefits and effectiveness of supplementing missing nutrients in the diet. When in doubt, a daily multivitamin is a safer bet than a cocktail of individual supplements that can exceed the safe upper limits of the recommended intake for any nutrient. 

    Beyond filling in gaps, other studies have demonstrated that supplemental vitamins and minerals can be advantageous. However, the exact benefits are still unclear as researchers continue to unravel the potential health benefits of vitamins and supplements. 

    Role in Immunity

    Vitamin C, B6, iron etc. affects several components of the human immune system; for example, vitamin C has been shown to stimulate both the production and function of leukocytes (white blood cells), especially neutrophils, lymphocytes, and phagocytes, vitamin B6 is important for immune system function, such as for production of antibodies. Neutrophils, which attack foreign bacteria and viruses, seem to be the primary cell type stimulated by vitamin C. Vitamin C may also protect the integrity of immune cells. It is widely thought by the general public that vitamin C boosts the function of the immune system, and accordingly, may protect against viral infections and perhaps other diseases. While some studies suggest the biological plausibility of vitamin C as an immune enhancer, human studies published to date are conflicting. Further, controlled clinical trials of appropriate statistical power would be necessary to determine if supplemental vitamin C boosts the immune system. 

    Cognitive function

    Micronutrient status can affect cognitive function at all ages. Vitamin deficiencies could influence memory function and might contribute to age-associated cognitive impairment and dementia. Vitamin B6, comprising three chemically distinct compounds pyridoxal, pyridoxamine, and pyridoxine, is involved in the regulation of mental function and mood. Vitamin B6 is also an essential homocysteine re-methylation cofactor, and deficiency is associated with increase in blood homocysteine levels. Homocysteine is a risk factor for cerebrovascular disease and may also have directly toxic effects on neurons of the central nervous system. Neuropsychiatric disorders including seizures, migraine, chronic pain and depression have been linked to vitamin B6 deficiency. 

    Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder

    ADHD is characterized by attention deficit, impulsivity, and sometimes over activity ("hyperactivity"). ADHD begins in childhood and often persists into adulthood. The exact etiology is unknown; genetics plays a role, but major etiologic contributors also include adverse responses to food additives, intolerances to foods and sensitivities to environmental chemicals, molds, and fungi. Research suggests that nutrient deficiencies are common in ADHD; but when individually managed with pyridoxine supplementation alone or in combination with other vitamins and minerals, dietary modification, detoxification and other features of a holistic/integrative program of management can ameliorate ADHD symptoms helping the ADHD subject lead a normal and productive life. 

    Autism

    One double-blind, placebo-controlled crossover study found indications that very high doses of vitamin B6 may produce beneficial effects in the treatment of autism. It has been suggested that combining magnesium with vitamin B6 could offer additional benefits, such as reducing side effects or allowing a reduced dose of the vitamin. Further research is needed. Autism should be treated by a qualified healthcare provider. 

    Safety


    • Before taking Vita Complete chewable tablet, consult with your child’s doctor or pharmacist.

    • It is better to ask your paediatrician; if your child is allergic to any of the ingredients of Vita Complete chewable tablet or has any other allergies.

    • Megavitamins -- large doses of vitamins -- aren't a good idea for children. The fat-soluble vitamins (vitamins A, D, E, and K) can be toxic if kids overdose on excessive amounts. Ditto with iron. 

    Interactions you should know

    People sensitive to nicotinic acid may experience flushing of the skin that is generally mild and transient.

    ABSTRACT
    OBJECTIVE: 

    To investigate the effects of vitamin-mineral supplement on young males with physical overtraining. 

    METHODS: 

    Two hundred and forty male Chinese field artillery personnel who undertook large scale and endurance military training and were on ordinary Chinese diet were randomized to receive a multivitamin/multimineral supplement or a placebo for 1 week. After a 1-week wash-out period, a cross-over with 1 week course of a placebo or multivitamin/multimineral supplement was conducted. Blood and urine samples were analyzed for adrenal, gonadal and thyroid hormones. In addition, cellular immune parameters (CD3+, CD3+CD4+, CD3+CD8+, CD4/CD8, CD3-CD56+, CD3-CD19+) were examined and psychological tests were performed before and after the training program and nutrition intervention. 

    RESULTS: 

    After a large scale and endurance military training, the participants showed significantly increased thyroid function, decreased adrenal cortex, testosterone and immunological function, and significantly increased somatization, anger and tension. Compared to placebo, multivitamin/ multimineral intervention showed significant effects on functional recovery of the pituitary - adrenal axis, pituitary-gonadal axis, pituitary- thyroid axis and immune system as well as psychological parameters. 

    CONCLUSION: 

    High-intensity military operations have significant impacts on the psychology, physical ability and neuroendocrine-immune system in young males. Appropriate supplementation of multivitamin/multimineral can facilitate the recovery of the psychology, physical ability and neuroendocrine-immune system in young males who take ordinary Chinese diet.

    ABSTRACT

    Previous research has suggested that multivitamin (MV) supplementation may be associated with beneficial effects for mood and general well-being, although treatment durations have typically been less than 90 days, samples have often been restricted to males only and acute effects have not been adequately differentiated from chronic effects. In the current study a MV supplement containing high levels of B-vitamins was administered daily to 138 healthy young adult participants between the ages of 20 and 50 years over a 16-week period. Chronic mood measures (GHQ-28, POMS, Chalder fatigue, PILL, Bond-Lader and custom visual analogue scales) were administered pre-dose at baseline, 8- and 16-weeks. Changes in Bond-Lader and VAS in response to a multi-tasking framework (MTF) were also assessed at 8- and 16-weeks. For a subset of participants, at-home mobile-phone assessments of mood were assessed on a weekly basis using Bond-Lader and VAS. No significant treatment effects were found for any chronic laboratory mood measures. In response to the MTF, a significant treatment x time interaction was found for STAI-S, with a trend towards a greater increase in stress ratings for male participants in the MV group at 16 weeks. However, this finding may have been attributable to a larger proportion of students in the male MV group. In contrast, at-home mobile-phone assessments, where assessments were conducted post-dose, revealed significantly reduced stress, physical fatigue and anxiety in the MV group in comparison to placebo across a number of time points. Further research using both acute and chronic dosing regimens are required in order to properly differentiate these effects. Copyright © 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

    ABSTRACT

    OBJECTIVE: 

    Nutritional and vitamin status may be related to cognitive function and decline in older adults. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of nutritional supplementation on cognition in older men. 

    METHODS: 

    The current study was an 8-week, placebo-controlled, double-blind investigation into the effects of a multivitamin, mineral and herbal supplement (Swisse Men's Ultivite®, Swisse Vitamins Pty Ltd, Melbourne, Australia) on cognitive performance in older men. Participants were 51 male individuals aged between 50 and 74 years, with a sedentary lifestyle. Cognitive performance was assessed at baseline and post-treatment using a computerised battery of cognitive tasks, enabling the measurement of a range of attentional and memory processes. Blood measures of vitamin B(12) , folate and homocysteine were collected prior to and after supplementation. 

    RESULTS: 

    The results of this study revealed that contextual recognition memory performance was significantly improved following multivitamin supplementation (p < 0.05). Performance on other cognitive tasks did not change. Levels of vitamin B(12) and folate were significantly increased with a concomitant decrease in homocysteine, indicating that relatively short-term supplementation with a multivitamin can benefit these risk factors for cognitive decline. 

    CONCLUSION: 

    Findings from this study indicate that daily multivitamin supplementation may improve episodic memory in older men at risk of cognitive decline. 

    IV) Effects of vitamin and mineral supplementation on stress, mild psychiatric symptoms, and mood in nonclinical samples: a meta-analysis.

    ABSTRACT

    OBJECTIVE: 

    Biochemical processes in the brain affect mood. Minor dietary inadequacies, which are responsible for a small decline in an enzyme's efficiency, could cumulatively influence mood states. When diet does not provide an optimal intake of micronutrients, supplementation is expected to benefit mood. This meta-analysis evaluated the influence of diet supplementation on mood in nonclinical samples. 

    METHODS: 

    Databases were evaluated and studies were included if they considered aspects of stress, mild psychiatric symptoms, or mood in the general population; were randomized and placebo-controlled; evaluated the influence of multivitamin/mineral supplements for at least 28 days. Eight studies that met the inclusion criteria were integrated using meta-analysis. 

    RESULTS: 

    Supplementation reduced the levels of perceived stress (standard mean difference [SMD]=0.35; 95% confidence interval [CI]=0.47-0.22; p=.001), mild psychiatric symptoms (SMD=0.30; 95% CI=0.43-0.18; p=.001), and anxiety (SMD=0.32; 95% CI=0.48-0.16; p<.001), but not depression (SMD=0.20; 95% CI=0.42-0.030; p<.089). Fatigue (SMD=0.27; 95% CI=0.40-0.146; p<.001) and confusion (SMD=0.225; 95% CI=0.38-0.07; p<.003) were also reduced. 

    CONCLUSION: 

    Micronutrient supplementation has a beneficial effect on perceived stress, mild psychiatric symptoms, and aspects of everyday mood in apparently healthy individuals. Supplements containing high doses of B vitamins may be more effective in improving mood states. Questions about optimal levels of micronutrient intake, optimal doses, and active ingredients arise.
