is a type of Vitamin B12. Vitamin B12
comes in several kinds including hydroxy-, cyano-, and adenosyl-, but
only the methyl and adenosyl forms are active within the body. Deficiency
occurs from a lack of "intrinsic factor" a mucoprotein enzyme
in gastrointestinal tract,from tapeworm infestation or excessive bacteria
in stomach and intestines.
Methylcobalamin donates methyl groups to the myelin sheath that insulates
nerve fibres and regenerates damaged neurons. In a B12 deficiency, toxic
fatty acids destroy the myelin sheath but high enough doses of B12 can
Folic acid (Vitamin
B9), a member of the B-complex vitamins, is a water-soluble vitamin
that is unstable in heat and light.
Folic acid is required for DNA synthesis and cell growth and is important
for red blood cell formation, energy production as well as the forming
of amino acids. Folic acid is essential for creating haeme, the iron
containing substance in hemoglobin, crucial for oxygen transport. It
is important for healthy cell division and replication, since it is
acts as a coenzyme for RNA and DNA synthesis. It is also required for
protein metabolism and in treating folic acid anemia. Folic acid also
assists in digestion, and the nervous system, and works at improving
mental as well as emotional health. This nutrient may be effective in
treating depression and anxiety. Folic acid is very important in the
development of the nervous system of a developing fetus.
Vitamin B6 is a water-soluble vitamin that exists in three major
chemical forms: pyridoxine, pyridoxal, and pyridoxamine. It performs
a wide variety of functions in our body and is essential for our good
health. Vitamin B6 is needed for more than 100 enzymes involved in protein
metabolism. It is also essential for red blood cell metabolism. The
nervous and immune systems need vitamin B6 to function efficiently,
and it is also needed for the conversion of tryptophan (an amino acid)
to niacin (a vitamin).
Alpha Lipoic Acid chemically is 1,2-dithiolane-3-pentanoic
acid. It is a sulphur containing substance, which is readily converted
from its reduced state, dihydrolipoic acid. It can be found in foods
such as meats and spinach. It is readily absorbed in the blood stream
and can also cross blood brain barrier.
It functions as a cofactor for enzymes involved in conversion of energy
from glucose and fats, Krebs cycle (metabolism of fats and carbohydrates).
It lowers blood sugar. It is a powerful antioxidant and prevents cellular
damage from free radicals thereby reducing oxidative stress. It increases
production of glutathione, which helps dissolves toxic substances in
