Background


Vita Complete is complete balance of all essential vitamins and minerals required for women to maintain optimal health. A well-balanced diet should provide most of the vitamins women 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 for women can be helpful for young adolescent girls, before pregnancy, during pregnancy, certain illnesses and at menopause.

Biogenique Structurally Active-Orthogenic (SAO) technology


Biogenique SAO technology formulates Vita Complete for women 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 extra iron, folic acid, vitamin D3 (the form similar to what body synthesizes when exposed to sunlight) with calcium, potent antioxidants 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. 

A National Institutes of Health (NIH) study found increased bone density and reduced fractures in postmenopausal women who took calcium and vitamin D. 

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 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, 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. 

Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a skeletal disorder in which bone strength is compromised, resulting in an increased risk of fracture. Your body needs calcium to help build and maintain healthy bones and strong teeth. People start to lose more bone than their bodies make in their 30s, and the process speeds up as they get older. Studies have shown that calcium, particularly in combination with vitamin D, may help prevent bone loss associated with menopause. It may also help prevent bone loss in older men. The loss of bone with aging is the result of several factors, including genetic factors, physical inactivity, and lower levels of circulating hormones (estrogen in women and testosterone in men). 
Osteoporosis can be slowed down by: 
Getting regular exercise, getting adequate vitamin D, consuming enough calcium to reduce the amount the body has to borrow from bone, consuming adequate vitamin K, found in green, leafy vegetables and not getting too much preformed vitamin A. 

Neural tube defects

Neural tube defects (NTD) may result in anencephaly or spina bifida, devastating and sometimes fatal birth defects. The defects occur between the 21st and 27th days after conception, a time when many women do not realize they are pregnant. Randomized controlled trials have demonstrated 60% to 100% reductions in NTD cases when women consumed folic acid supplements in addition to a varied diet during the month before and the month after conception. Increasing evidence indicates that the homocysteine-lowering effect of folic acid plays a critical role in lowering the risk of NTD. Homocysteine may accumulate in the blood when there is inadequate folate and/or vitamin B12 for effective functioning of the methionine synthase enzyme. Decreased vitamin B12 levels in the blood and amniotic fluid of pregnant women have been associated with an increased risk of NTD, suggesting that adequate vitamin B12 intake in addition to folic acid may be beneficial in the prevention of NTD. 

3 B's Block Cardiovascular Disease

Current research suggests that the three B's—folic acid, B6 and B12—can control and reduce homocysteine levels, known to be high in case of cardiovascular disease. Folic acid seems to be the most important single nutrient in providing protection. 

Morning sickness (Nausea and Vomiting during pregnancy)

Vitamin B 6 supplements have been used for years by conventional physicians as a treatment for morning sickness. A total of 342 pregnant women were given placebo or 30 mg of vitamin B 6 daily. Subjects then graded their symptoms by noting the severity of their nausea and recording the number of vomiting episodes. The women in the B 6 group experienced significantly less nausea than those in the placebo group, suggesting that regular use of B 6 can be helpful for morning sickness. 

Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)

A more recent review of 25 studies suggested that supplementing vitamin B6 orally, up to 100mg/day, helps to relieve the symptoms of PMS such as mastalgia (breast pain or tenderness), PMS-related depression/moodiness, that begin sometime after ovulation (mid-cycle) and subside with the onset of menstruation (the monthly period). 

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.

• Fat soluble vitamin supplements (e.g., vitamins A & E) taken by the breastfeeding mother can concentrate in human milk, and thus excessive amounts may be harmful to a breastfeeding baby.

• 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

OBJECTIVE: 

To determine whether increased antioxidant intake in women is associated with shorter time to pregnancy (TTP) among a cohort of couples being treated for unexplained infertility. 

DESIGN: 

Secondary data analysis of a randomized controlled trial. 

SETTING: 

Academic medical center associated with a private infertility center. 

PATIENTS: 

Females with unexplained infertility. 

INTERVENTIONS: 

None. 

MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): 

The time it took to establish a pregnancy that led to a live birth. 

RESULTS: 

Mean nutrient intake exceeded the estimated average requirement (EAR) for vitamins C and E. No differences in mean intake of any of the antioxidants were noted between women who delivered a live-born infant during the study period vs. those who did not. In multivariable models, intake of β-carotene from dietary supplements was associated with shorter TTP among women with body mass index (BMI) ≥25 kg/m2 (hazard ratio [HR] 1.29, 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.09-1.53) and women

CONCLUSION: 

Shorter TTP was observed among women with BMI

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: 

Vitamin D deficiency during pregnancy has been associated with increased risk of complications and adverse perinatal outcomes. We evaluated seasonal variation of 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] among pregnant women, focusing on patterns and determinants of variation. 

METHODS: 

Data came from three cohort studies in the US that included 2583 non-Hispanic Black and White women having prenatal 25(OH)D concentrations determined. Fourier time series and generalised linear models were used to estimate the magnitude of 25(OH)D seasonality. We modelled seasonal variability using a stationary cosinor model to estimate the phase shift, peak-trough difference, and annual mean of 25(OH)D. 

RESULTS: 

We observed a peak for 25(OH)D in summer, a nadir in winter, and a phase of 8 months, which resulted from fluctuations in 25(OH)D3 rather than 25(OH)D2. After adjustment for covariates, the annual mean concentrations and estimated peak-trough difference of 25(OH)D among Black women were 19.8 ng/mL [95% confidence interval (CI) 18.9, 20.5] and 5.8 ng/mL [95% CI 4.7, 6.7], and for non-Hispanic White women were 33.0 ng/mL [95% CI 32.6, 33.4] and 7.4 ng/mL [95% CI 6.0, 8.9]. 

CONCLUSION: 

Non-Hispanic Black women had lower average 25(OH)D concentrations throughout the year and smaller seasonal variation levels than non-Hispanic White women. This study's confirmation of 25(OH)D seasonality over a calendar year has the potential to enhance public health interventions targeted to improve maternal and perinatal outcomes. © 2013 John Wiley & Sons Ltd. 

III)Weekly dose of Iron-Folate Supplementation with Vitamin-C in the workplace can prevent anaemia in women employees.


Source

Joseph B1, Ramesh N2. 

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE: 

To assess if a weekly dose of iron and folic acid along with vitamin C, in the workplace would reduce the prevalence of anaemia. Methodology: A multi-pronged intervention was carried out to reduce the prevalence of anaemia among workers of 7 apparel manufacturing factories using a regime consisting of a supervised single dose of albendazole (400mg) followed by a weekly dose of dried ferrous sulphate (150mg), folic acid (0.5mg) and vitamin C (100mg). Workers were provided information on the causes of anaemia and its prevention. The total duration of the intervention was 16 weeks. Haemoglobin levels of a randomly selected sample of workers were tested before and after the intervention using a computerized non-cyan-meth-haemoglobin method. Results: Of the 10810 workers who were enrolled a sample of 515 workers was randomly selected for the blood investigations. At the end of the intervention (18 weeks after the first blood sample was collected) only 361 out of the 515 who had been enrolled a little more than 16 weeks earlier still remained in the factories and among women 279 out of 385 enrolled were still working in the factories. In the 385 unmatched samples the number of anaemic women had reduced from 141 before the intervention to 79 after - mean haemoglobin increasing from 12.2 to 13.0 (p < 0.001) and in the 279 paired samples prevalence of anaemia had reduced from 105 to 58 - mean haemoglobin increasing from 12.1 to 13.0 (p < 0.001). Conclusions: Our results demonstrated that in resource poor regions, where prevalence of anaemia is high, the workplace may be considered an ideal location to give a weekly supervised dose of iron, folic acid and vitamin C to effectively tackle the problem and probably improve worker efficiency.
