OTHER BENEFITS of supplementation with ANIMONCOMPLEX
- It aids DNA and RNA synthesis, which is essential to maintain cells in good order and for the proper formation of genetic material.
- It favors amino acid synthesis and the proper synthesis of proteins.
- It contributes to the optimal functioning of the immune system.
- improving nervous system function and increasing brainpower (concentration, reasoning and learning).
- boosting psychological function in cases of depression, anxiety, stress or apathy.
- increasing folate levels and maintaining homocysteine within normal ranges. High homocysteine levels are
- linked with a greater risk of heart disease, loss of memory and osteoporosis.
- increasing the number of red blood cells and hemoglobin, and forestalling the appearance of anemia.
- improving energy metabolism and feeling healthy and lively.
- improving immune system function, favoring the synthesis of proteins and keeping your cells healthy and in good order.
- situations of nutritional deficiency requiring a supplementary intake.
- Benefits of Quinoa -
Quinoa is considered a “superfood” due to its nutritional properties; it possesses the 8 amino acids which are essential for the human being, which makes it a complete, easily-digestible food. It has a protein content greater than that of most cereals, and it also possesses a high carbohydrate content, mainly comprised of starch, making it suitable for diabetics. Regarding its vitamin content, vitamins E, B2 and B3 are of particular note. It also contains significant quantities of minerals, such as magnesium, phosphorus, iron and potassium. Quinoa does not contain gluten; therefore it may be taken by celiacs. It is a basic foodstuff in vegetarian or vegan diets.
- Vitamin B12, Iron and Folic Acid -
Each capsule of AnimonComplex contains the daily amounts of vitamin B12, iron and folic acid recommended by health authorities.
