Vitamin B6 (19 mg), also known as Pyridoxine, is one of eight water-soluble vitamins in the B complex. It serves as a cofactor in nearly 100 enzymatic reactions within the human body. Vitamin B6 is critical in the production of amino acids and in obtaining energy from the food we eat, and it supports heart health.
Biotin (2,000 mcg), also a member of the B complex and sometimes referred to as Vitamin H, is an essential micronutrient for all mammals. As a coenzyme, Biotin plays key roles in the breakdown of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. It supports skin, hair, and nail health, normal blood sugar metabolism, and proper neurological function, and is particularly important during pregnancy for proper fetal development.
Zinc (10 mg) is an essential trace mineral, and is ubiquitous within cells throughout the body. The numerous roles played by zinc in human metabolism include catalytic, structural, and regulatory functions. It supports the immune system, eyesight, neurological function, and growth and development at all ages–especially prenatally and during infancy. The zinc in Core™ is bound to monomethionine, glycinate, gluconate, and picolinate. Zinc is made more absorbable and bioavailable when complexed with these organic compounds.
Manganese (1.8 mg) is a mineral component of manganese super oxide dismutase (MnSOD), which is a powerful antioxidant enzyme found in human mitochondria. MnSOD helps support healthy cell membranes and DNA by scavenging free radical oxygen. Manganese is essential for bone health, production of collagen, and proper metabolism of fats, carbohydrates, and amino acids.
Chromium (125 mcg) is involved in thyroid metabolism, RNA synthesis and protein metabolism. The chromium in Core™ is chemically bound with the amino acid glycine and it is safe and highly bioavailable.
Molybdenum (100 mcg) is a mineral needed in the human body in small amounts to form compounds with organic molecules and enzymes that affect numerous processes including protein synthesis, iron uptake, detoxification, and elimination of wastes. Some people use molybdenum to help support dental health. In Core™, molybdenum is bound to the amino acid glycine, facilitating its absorption and bioavailablity.
Magnesium (2.5 mg) is one of the most plentiful minerals in the human body, playing key roles in hundreds of enzymatic reactions and metabolic functions. It helps regulate cell membrane transport, supports healthy bones and teeth, facilitates muscle contraction, supports cardiovascular health, aids in energy production, is part of DNA and RNA synthesis, and more. Chelated to the amino acid glycine, magnesium bisglycinate in Core™ provides the highest level of absorption, bioavailability, and safety.
Boron as citrate chelate and amino acid complex (1mg) is involved in many bodily functions, including the metabolism of calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D, supporting healthy bone growth and joint movement, and in the regulation of thyroid and sex hormones. Although not yet considered essential, there is growing evidence of the importance of this trace mineral.
L-Taurine (21mg) is an amino acid important for heart function, vasodilation, and as an antioxidant. Taurine also supports a healthy digestive system, and retinal development and function.
Other ingredients present in small amounts are silica, cellulose, and ascorbyl palmitate. Silica, also known as silicon dioxide, is a naturally occurring substance that the human body needs a very small amount of for healthy bones, collagen, and cartilage. In Core™, silica serves the dual purpose of acting as a flow agent. The capsules are made with a small amount of non-digestible cellulose, providing a vegetarian alternative to animal-sourced gelatin capsules. Ascorbyl palmitate is a fat-soluble antioxidant that contributes an insignificant amount of Vitamin C, and primarily serves the purpose of protecting and extending the shelf-life of all the fat-soluble antioxidants in the supplement.
The accurate amount of the Molybdenum per capsule is 100mcg. There is a misprint on the label.
This product contains Zinc Gluconate. This ingredient is derived from genetically modified sourced material. However, PCR testing confirms that it does not contain detectable quantities of genetically modified components.
1 Capsule daily.
Product should be stored, tightly closed, in a cool, dark, and dry location between 60°F and 75°
With the exception of calcium that forms a major part of our bone structure, most of the minerals in the human body are present in relatively small amounts, but their importance to human health cannot be overstated. The trace minerals in Core™play critical roles as cofactors in a myriad of enzymatic pathways. Although most minerals are available in foods we eat, deficiencies can occur from a number of causes including environmental factors, injury recovery, genetics, stress, medications, overexertion, athletes demanding high performance, aging, diets, bacterial infections, and lifestyle differences. Core™ is an additional source of important trace minerals and other nutrients.
