Our Nutrients

Nutrients are the building blocks for our day to day energy. In general it is possible to achieve a balanced diet (complete nutritional diet, meaning all macro, micronutrients and amino acids) through the foods we eat. However, availability changes, know how may be limited, stress levels are high and so we don’t always find ourselves in a to be able to stock up and replenish nutrients on a daily basis to sufficient levels. Especially vitamin B & C that are water soluble and excreted whenever we go to the bathroom, need to be replenished often to be able to stock up sufficient levels.  

This is where supplements come into play. The following explains in more depth what nutrients can be found in our gummies why we’ve chosen them and what happens when we experience deficiency.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is a type of vinegar made from smashed-up fermented apples, along with yeast and sugar . People have been using it as a home remedy for various things, like fighting off sickness or easing heartburn, for a long time.

Recent research suggests that ACV might actually be good for your health. It could help lower your blood sugar and even help with weight loss.

Most of ACV is water (about 94%), with a small amount of acetic acid (5%), a bit of carbohydrates (1%), and no fat or protein. So, it's pretty low in calories, with around 22 calories in every 100 grams. But it doesn't have many other nutrients .

 High in beneficial compounds: Apple cider vinegar is packed with something called acetic acid, which gives it that strong, sour smell and taste. This acetic acid is the key ingredient that makes apple cider vinegar good for your health. In apple cider vinegar, you'll find about 5-6% of this helpful acetic acid.

The vinegar is formed by blending apples and yeast. The yeast transforms the apple sugar into alcohol. Bacteria are then added to the mixture, where they ferment the alcohol to produce acetic acid. Vinegar contains water as well as trace amounts of other acids, vitamins, and minerals in addition to acetic acid.

In some people, apple cider vinegar may result in unpleasant digestive symptoms.
According to studies on both humans and animals, acetic acid and apple cider vinegar may increase feelings of fullness and reduce hunger, which would naturally result in a reduction in caloric intake. However, one controlled study contends that indigestion may occasionally cause a decrease in appetite and food consumption.
People that drank beverages containing 25 grammes (0.88 ounces) of apple cider vinegar reported less appetite but also noticeably more sickness, especially when the vinegar was a component of a drink with a bad taste.

Standard doses range from 1-2 teaspoons (5-10 mL) to 1-2 tablespoons (15-30 mL) combined in a big glass of water per day.

Biotin

Biotin, also known as vitamin H, is a B vitamin that helps our bodies turn food into energy. It's important for making a protein called keratin, which is what our hair, skin, and nails are made of . Biotin is especially crucial during pregnancy because it supports the growth of the baby .

People often take biotin supplements to address hair loss and improve the health of their hair, skin, and nails. While a lack of biotin can indeed lead to hair loss and skin or nail issues, the evidence for the effectiveness of biotin supplements is unclear. Some limited studies and individual cases have hinted at potential benefits, but the research methods used in these studies were not very reliable:
In this study, the types of hair conditions differed or were not included at all. Researchers have also emphasised that certain hair loss diseases, such as alopecia, might heal spontaneously without therapy, thus it is unclear whether the regrowth was primarily induced by biotin supplements.
This study did not assess the subjects' baseline biotin levels to determine whether they were adequate or insufficient. Some evidence suggests that biotin supplements may be most beneficial in persons who are deficient in the nutrient; however, there aren't enough studies that have examined biotin levels before and after supplementation to validate this conclusion.
There are currently no published research indicating that biotin supplements are advantageous for the growth of normal, healthy hair and nails.

Despite the ambiguous evidence, biotin supplements are nevertheless widely used. Between 1999 and 2016, the proportion of supplement consumers nearly tripled.

Dietary biotin can be obtained from both plant and animal sources. Biotin rich foods include:
- egg yolks
- legumes
- nuts and seeds
- liver
- sweet potatoes
- mushrooms
- bananas
- broccoli
- yeast
- avocados

There is insufficient information to determine the consequences of using large daily doses of biotin supplements.

Most people who eat a balanced diet get enough biotin from their food, so biotin deficiency is rare . But if it does happen, it can lead to skin rashes, brittle nails, and hair thinning or loss because biotin plays a role in making keratin.

A diversified and balanced diet should provide you with all of the biotin you require. Taking 0.9mg or less of biotin per day in supplements is unlikely to be harmful.

Calcium (Ca2+)

Calcium is an essential component that your body need for a variety of basic activities. Calcium serves various critical tasks, including bone formation and tooth health, muscular contraction regulation, including heartbeat regulation, and appropriate blood clotting. Calcium is required by your body to produce and maintain strong bones. Over 98% of your body's calcium is stored in your bones and teeth. Calcium is so crucial that if you don't receive enough of it in your diet, your body will take it from your skeleton and teeth and utilise it elsewhere, weakening your bones.Chamomile oil is derived from the blooms or leaves of daisy-like plants such as German chamomile (Matricaria recutita) and Roman or English chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile). Chamomile extracts, oils, and teas are used for their relaxing properties as a sedative, mild analgesic, and sleep drug.

They may aid in the prevention of bone loss in postmenopausal women: Women lose bone mass after menopause due to a decrease in oestrogen. Supplements may be beneficial. Several studies have found that postmenopausal women who take calcium supplements — typically 1,000 mg per day — may decrease bone loss by 1-2%. The effect appears to be strongest among women with low calcium intakes and during the first two years of supplementation. A 2022 review of 43 research including over 7,000 people under the age of 35 discovered that calcium supplementation enhanced bone mass.

They may aid with weight loss: Low calcium consumption has been linked to a high body mass index (BMI) and a high body fat percentage in studies.
A 2013 study looked at the impact of delivering a daily 600-mg calcium supplement to overweight and obese college students who had very low calcium intakes. The researchers discovered that those who took a supplement containing 600 mg of calcium and 125 international units (IUs) of vitamin D shed more body fat on a calorie-restricted diet than those who did not.

Calcium could help reduce the risk of colon cancer: Calcium from dairy products and supplements, according to one major study, may reduce the risk of colon cancer. A 2022 meta-analysis of 37 research discovered a 6% lower risk of colorectal cancer for every 300 mg of calcium consumed daily.

Calcium sources include:
- dairy products such as milk and cheese
- Green leafy vegetables, such as curly kale and okra, but not spinach (while spinach contains a lot of calcium, the body can't digest it completely).
- Soya drinks with calcium added
- bread and anything produced with fortified wheat
- fish with bones - such as sardines and pilchards .

Ingesting more than 1,500 mg/day of calcium may lead to stomach pain and diarrhoea.

Calcium shortage can lead to osteoporosis, which is characterised by weak bones and an increased risk of falling . Although vitamin D insufficiency is more common in these conditions, calcium shortage can induce rickets in children and other bone abnormalities in adults.

Adults aged 19 to 64 require 700mg of calcium every day. Your everyday diet should provide you with all of the calcium you require.

Chamomile

Chamomile oil is derived from the blooms or leaves of daisy-like plants such as German chamomile (Matricaria recutita) and Roman or English chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile). Chamomile extracts, oils, and teas are used for their relaxing properties as a sedative, mild analgesic, and sleep drug.

Enhances sleep quality: Chamomile has several special qualities that may help you sleep better. This contains apigenin, an antioxidant that attaches to specific receptors in your brain, promoting sleepiness and decreasing insomnia, or the chronic inability to sleep .

Enhances digestive health: There is limited evidence that chamomile can help with digestion by lowering the risk of some gastrointestinal diseases. Several studies have demonstrated that chamomile extract has the capacity to prevent mice from diarrhoea. This is because it has anti-inflammatory effects.

Matricaria chamomilla and Chamaemelum nobile are two of the species that are frequently used to create herbal infusions for tea or supplements.

When used in the proportions frequently found in teas, chamomile is most likely harmless. It may be safe to take orally for therapeutic purposes in the short term. It is unknown whether applying chamomile on the skin for therapeutic purposes is safe over time.
The most common side effects include nausea, dizziness, and allergic responses. People who consumed or came into touch with chamomile products experienced rare incidences of anaphylaxis (a potentially fatal allergic reaction). People who are allergic to related plants such as ragweed, chrysanthemums, marigolds, or daisies are more prone to have allergic reactions to chamomile.

There is no standard dosage recommendation of chamomile.

Choline

Chromium is a trace mineral that helps your body break down protein, carbohydrates, and lipids. Since it is not a necessary mineral, being lacking in it will not cause any health problems. However, including chromium in your diet is still a smart idea.

Lowers triglycerides, boosts HDL, and enhances insulin sensitivity: Chromium is a mineral that, based on research, seems to do a couple of good things for your health. It might lower the levels of triglycerides (a type of fat in your blood) and boost HDL (the good cholesterol). It could also make insulin work better in people with type 2 diabetes . This means it helps your cells respond better to insulin, a hormone that's important for controlling your blood sugar .

Foods high in Chromium include:
- grape juice
- whole wheat flour
- baker's yeast
- orange juice
- beef
- tomato juice
- apples
- green beans

Large doses of chromium can cause serious respiratory, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, hepatic, and renal damage, as well as death. Chromium may cause occupational asthma in people who are allergic to it.

A lack of chromium has been linked to a number of metabolic and neurological problems, including insulin intolerance.

To determine a Recommended Dietary Allowance for chromium, insufficient information is available.
Men aged 19 to 50 should take 35 micrograms of AI (Adequate Intake) daily, while women aged 19 to 50 should take 25 micrograms. Older men and women need slightly less, at 30 and 20 micrograms per day, respectively. The AI is 30 and 45 micrograms per day for lactation and pregnancy, respectively.

Green tea is a type of tea that's not processed as much as other kinds. Because of this, it has the most antioxidants and helpful compounds . One of these compounds is called catechin, which is an antioxidant that helps protect your cells from harm and provides health benefits. The most famous catechin in green tea is called epigallocatechin-3-gallate, or EGCG for short. Research suggests that EGCG might improve your health and help with certain health issues.

Green tea catechins, according to animal studies, can help protect against certain diseases . Some research suggests that green tea can slow down the growth of liver cancer cells, lower cholesterol levels in rats with liver problems, and prevent liver damage. It has also shown promise in preventing breast cancer after it has started. Green tea, its extract, and its individual components have been found to be effective in preventing damage caused by oxidative stress and certain brain disorders . Drinking green tea has even been linked to a lower risk of several types of cancer, including lung, colon, esophagus, mouth, stomach, small intestine, kidney, pancreas, and breast cancer.

The camellia sinensis plant is used to make all varieties of tea, including your typical cup of builder's tea. The emerald green tint that results from brewing these uncooked, unfermented leaves gives green tea its name.

Overdoes (more than 300 mg caffeine or 5 cups of tea as a beverage) can cause agitation, tremor, and increased reflex excitability. Vomiting and stomach spasms are the initial symptoms of poisoning. It is claimed that sufficient testing for reproductive toxicity and carcinogenicity were not carried out. Caffeine-containing preparations are said to diminish the effects of sedatives and exacerbate the negative effects of sympathomimetic medications.

Green tea in moderate amounts (approximately 8 cups per day) is probably safe for most people. Green tea extract may be safe when taken for up to two years or used as a mouthwash for a brief period of time. Drinking more than 8 cups of green tea each day may be harmful.

Iron

Iron is a mineral that does many important things in your body, but the most important is carrying oxygen around. It does this as a part of red blood cells. For most people who are not pregnant, they need 8-18 milligrams of iron every day. If you don't get enough iron to replace what your body loses each day, you might develop a shortage. Your body uses iron to make hemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells that moves oxygen from your lungs to all parts of your body, and myoglobin, a protein that provides oxygen to your muscles. Iron is also needed to produce certain hormones in your body. Iron's most essential contribution to health is the prevention of iron deficient anaemia and its complications.

Pregnant women: Because a woman's blood volume increases during pregnancy, she needs more iron for herself and her growing baby. A woman's risk of iron deficiency anaemia increases during pregnancy, as does her infant's risk of low birth weight, early birth, and low iron levels. A lack of iron may potentially damage her infant's brain development. Pregnant women should consult with their doctor and, if necessary, take an iron supplement.

Good sources of iron include:
- liver (but avoid this during pregnancy)
- red meat
- beans, such as red kidney beans, edamame beans and chickpeas
- nuts
- dried fruit – such as dried apricots
- fortified breakfast cereals
- soy bean flour

High dosages of iron (more than 20mg) can cause the following side effects: stomach ache, constipation, feeling nauseous and being sick.
Extremely high iron doses can be lethal, especially if taken by children, thus keep iron supplements out of reach of children at all times.

Severe iron deficiency anaemia may raise your chance of having heart or lung difficulties, such as an unusually fast heartbeat (tachycardia) or heart failure, which occurs when your heart is unable to pump enough blood around your body at the appropriate pressure.

Iron requirements for men aged 19 and up are 8.7mg per day and 14.8mg per day for women aged 19 to 49.
8.7mg per day for women aged 50 and up.
Women over the age of 50 may require the same amount of iron as women aged 19 to 49. Women who shed a lot of blood throughout their monthly cycle (heavy periods) are more likely to develop iron deficiency anaemia and may require iron supplements.
