    Background


    Vita Complete is complete balance of all essential vitamins and minerals required by the body to maintain optimal health. A well-balanced diet should provide most of the vitamins people need to stay healthy and prevent disease. Vitamin D is the only exception. Trouble is, very few people eat right every day. “When we compare recommendations for vitamin and mineral intakes to actual consumption, many individuals do not even come close to getting what they need for several nutrients,” says Meir Stampfer, MD, DrPH, professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School. Vita Complete can be helpful in situations, such as pregnancy and certain illnesses. Strict vegetarians may benefit from taking vitamin B12 supplements. 

    Biogenique Structurally Active-Orthogenic (SAO) technology


    Biogenique SAO technology formulates Vita Complete 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, calcium with vitamin D3 (the form similar to what body synthesizes when exposed to sunlight) and all other nutrients meeting the standards of Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA). A well balanced Vita Complete formula goes a long way to getting the vitamins and minerals you need to feel good and head off health problems 
    Biogenique Vita Complete gives you everything you need, bridging your 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 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 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, 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. 

    Scientific Evidence


    Antioxidants: Pros and Cons

    Free Radicals (Oxidants). Currently, the most important benefit claimed for vitamins A, C, E, and many of the carotenoids and phytochemicals is their role as antioxidants, which are scavengers of particles known as free radicals (also sometimes called oxidants). These chemically active particles are by products of many of the body's normal chemical processes. Warnings on High-Dose Antioxidants and Supplements. Antioxidant vitamins (A, C, and E), carotenoids, and many phytochemicals can neutralize harmful free radicals. Although it is clear that the modest amounts of these vitamins in foods prevent deficiency diseases, high-dose vitamin C, vitamin E, and beta-carotene supplements may also have pro-oxidant effects, which can be harmful in patients with cancer. In these people, high doses of antioxidant vitamins may actually protect cancer cells just as they do healthy cells. Because there is no evidence that antioxidants decrease the risk of cancer or heart disease people should talk with their physician before taking these vitamins or supplements. Protection against Heart Disease

    A low dietary intake of vitamins A, C, E, and beta-carotene has been linked to heart disease. Deficiencies in the B vitamins folate (also known as folic acid) and B12 have been associated with high blood levels of the amino acid homocysteine. Higher homocysteine levels may increase the risk for heart disease, stroke, and heart failure. However, supplements of these vitamins, alone or in combination, have not been shown to protect against heart disease. Calcium, which is often taken along with vitamin D to protect bones, may actually increase the risk for heart disease. Research suggests that calcium supplements, when taken alone or with vitamin D, increase the likelihood of heart problems, especially heart attack. This risk may prompt older adults to re-evaluate their use of calcium supplements for bone protection. More research on the subject is needed. 

    Protection against Stroke

    The effects of antioxidant vitamins and carotenoids (vitamins C or E, or beta-carotene) on stroke have been studied extensively. Most studies have found that these vitamins do not protect against stroke. Although B vitamin supplements help lower homocysteine levels, they have no effect on heart disease outcomes. More research is under way to evaluate the effect of vitamins on reducing stroke risk. 

    Protection against Cancer

    Because many cancers are thought to be caused by the effects of oxygen-free radicals on DNA, the antioxidants A, C, and E and beta-carotene have been intensively studied for cancer prevention. For the most part, vitamin or phytochemical supplements have not shown any benefit against cancer. Any protective effects of vitamins or phytochemicals against cancer may depend on the combined effect of these nutrients in foods. A National Institutes of Health study reviewed randomized trials that evaluated the effectiveness and safety of multivitamin and mineral supplements for preventing cancer and chronic disease. The reviewers concluded that current evidence is not sufficient to determine whether multivitamin and mineral supplements prevent cancer or chronic disease. Research finds that beta-carotene supplements increase lung cancer risk in smokers and people who have been exposed to asbestos.
    • A combination of selenium, beta-carotene, and alpha-tocopherol may decrease the risk of death from gastric cancer in certain population groups.
    • There is some evidence that, in women who are already at high risk for skin cancer, vitamin D plus calcium may offer some protection against melanoma.
    Studies on the health benefits of vitamins and minerals have some important limitations. Some are held to rigorous standards, while others are not. In most cases, the results of existing research are complex, because they can be complicated by factors such as diet, exercise, healthy or unhealthy lifestyle behaviors, as well as environmental and genetic factors. 

    Safety


    • Before taking Vita Complete, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to any of its ingredients; or if you have any other allergies, especially of: use/abuse of alcohol, liver problems, stomach/intestinal problems (e.g., ulcer, colitis).

    • Consult your doctor or pharmacist for details, if you have vitamin B12 deficiency (pernicious anemia). Folic acid may affect certain laboratory tests for vitamin B12 deficiency without treating this anemia. Untreated vitamin B12 deficiency may result in serious nerve problems (e.g., peripheral neuropathy). 

    • Constipation, diarrhea, or upset stomach may occur. These effects are usually temporary and may disappear as your body adjusts to this medication. If any of these effects persist or worsen, contact your doctor or pharmacist promptly.

    • This is not a complete list of possible side effects. If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist. 

    Interactions you should know


    • Your doctor or pharmacist may already be aware of any possible drug interactions and may be monitoring you for them. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medicine before checking with them first.

    • Avoid taking Vita Complete if you are taking antacids, bisphosphonates (for example, alendronate), levodopa, thyroid medications (for example, levothyroxine), or some antibiotics (for example, tetracyclines, quinolones such as ciprofloxacin). 

    • If you take certain anti-seizure drugs (e.g., hydantoins such as phenytoin), avoid Vita Complete as it contains iron which can interact with your medicines.

    • It is important to keep this product out of reach of children. Accidental overdose of iron-containing products is a leading cause of fatal poisoning in children younger than 6 years. If overdose does occur, seek immediate medical attention or call a poison control center.

    ABSTRACT

    Multivitamin use is common in the United States. It is not known whether multivitamins with minerals supplements (MVM) used by women already diagnosed with invasive breast cancer would affect their breast cancer mortality risk. To determine prospectively the effects of MVM use on breast cancer mortality in postmenopausal women diagnosed with invasive breast cancer, a prospective cohort study was conducted of 7,728 women aged 50-79 at enrollment in the women's health initiative (WHI) in 40 clinical sites across the United States diagnosed with incident invasive breast cancer during WHI and followed for a mean of 7.1 years after breast cancer diagnosis. Use of MVM supplements was assessed at WHI baseline visit and at visit closest to breast cancer diagnosis, obtained from vitamin pill bottles brought to clinic visit. Outcome was breast cancer mortality. Hazard ratios and 95 % confidence intervals (CIs) for breast cancer mortality comparing MVM users to non-users were estimated using Cox proportional hazard regression models. Analyses using propensity to take MVM were done to adjust for potential differences in characteristics of MVM users versus non-users. At baseline, 37.8 % of women reported MVM use. After mean post-diagnosis follow-up of 7.1 ± 4.1 (SD) years, there were 518 (6.7 %) deaths from breast cancer. In adjusted analyses, breast cancer mortality was 30 % lower in MVM users as compared to non-users (HR = 0.70; 95 % CI 0.55, 0.91). This association was highly robust and persisted after multiple adjustments for potential confounding variables and in propensity score matched analysis (HR = 0.76; 95 % CI 0.60-0.96). Postmenopausal women with invasive breast cancer using MVM had lower breast cancer mortality than non-users. The results suggest a possible role for daily MVM use in attenuating breast cancer mortality in women with invasive breast cancer but the findings require confirmation.

    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: 

    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.
