Vitamin A (Beta-carotene)
Beta-carotene is a fat-soluble yellow/orange pigment found in plants like fruits and vegetables, it is one of the six hundred members of a larger pigment family called carotenoids. Beta-carotene is also known as Pro-Vitamin A because it is readily converted by the body to Vitamin A/Retinol. A powerful antioxidant that has many roles in the body including strengthening the immune system, promoting sight and eye health and skin integrity. Vitamin A deficiency is fortunately rare in industrialized nations but low dietary levels and deficiency indicators include night blindness, hair loss, skin irritation and dry or inflamed eyes. Good dietary sources of beta-carotene include carrots, kumara, pumpkin, mango, apricots, peaches, tomatoes, seaweed/vegetables and most leafy vegetables. The recommended daily intake of Vitamin A/Retinol equivalents is 500-900 micrograms for adults daily.

 

Vitamin B1 (Thiamin)
Vitamin B1 is also called Thiamin, a water-soluble essential nutrient that is a member of the B complex family. Thiamin helps to support adrenal function, maintain a healthy nervous system and is a vital co-factor to carbohydrate metabolism and maintaining healthy digestive system. Regular alcohol consumption and stress readily deplete water-soluble nutrients like Thiamin and they are not stored within the body. Thiamin plays an important role in the central nervous system (CNS) and in nervous transmission so low dietary levels/insufficiency can have a marked effect of the CNS including confusion, headache, muscle weakness, fatigue, pain, memory loss, neuropathy, depression and digestive disorders. Good dietary sources of Thiamin include Brewer’s Yeast, sunflower seeds, Brazil nuts, whole grains like oats, lean pork, millet, pistachio nuts, hazelnuts, lentils and beans. The recommended daily allowance of Thiamin is 1-1.4 mg for adults daily and therapeutic doses range from 8-200 mg daily.

 

Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin)
Vitamin B2 is also called Riboflavin, a water-soluble essential nutrient that is a member of the B complex family. Riboflavin is a vital pre-cursor for coenzymes that are needed for energy and lipid metabolism, detoxification pathways and is also needed for other nutrient metabolism of folic acid, pyridoxine, vitamin K and niacin. Regular alcohol consumption and stress readily deplete this water soluble nutrient and they are not stored in within the body. Insufficient dietary levels or deficiency can affect a wide array of physiological functions and can present as acne, fungal infections, diarrhoea, visual disturbances, red, burning and itchy eyes, thyroid dysfunction, dry skin, seborrheic dermatitis, sore and inflamed mouth, baldness, depression and liver dysfunction. Good dietary sources include Brewer’s Yeast, liver & kidney, almonds, wheat germ, egg yolks, mushrooms, millet, mackerel, parsley, cashews, pine nuts, salmon and broccoli. The recommended daily allowance for riboflavin is 1.3-1.7mg daily for adults and therapeutic doses range from 50-200mg daily.

 

Vitamin B3 (Niacin)
Vitamin B3 is also called Niacin, a water-soluble essential nutrient that is a member of the B complex family. Niacin is a vital pre-cursor for enzymes that are required for fatty acid, steroid and Glucose Tolerance Factor (GTF) synthesis amongst many other redox reactions within the body. Regular alcohol consumption and stress readily deplete this water soluble nutrient. Insufficient dietary levels or deficiency can present as nausea, inflamed mouth and tongue, dermatitis, fatigue, headaches, indigestion, insomnia, irritability, dementia, diarrhoea, muscle weakness, arthritis, high LDL cholesterol levels, dark scaly hyperpigmentation after sun exposure or trauma and liver dysfunction. Good dietary sources include Brewer’s Yeast, rice bran, wheat bran, peanuts, liver, trout, mackerel, chicken, salmon, lean lamb, sunflower seeds, lean pork and buckwheat. The recommended daily allowance for niacin is 13-19mg for daily for adults and therapeutic doses range from 50-200mg daily.

 

Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid)
Vitamin B5 is also called Pantothenic Acid, a water-soluble essential nutrient that is a member of the B complex family. Pantothenic Acid occurs in food primarily as Co Enzyme A and both have numerous functions within the body including cellular energy production and the synthesis of steroid hormones, Vitamin D, fatty acids, some amino acids and parts of red blood cells. Regular alcohol consumption and stress readily deplete this water soluble nutrient. Insufficient dietary levels or deficiency are not common but can present as fatigue, low red blood cell levels, hormonal imbalances and liver dysfunction. Good dietary sources include Brewer’s Yeast, liver, peanuts, mushrooms, blue cheese, eggs, oats, buckwheat, sunflower seeds, lentils, camembert cheese, lentils and split peas. There is no recommended daily allowance for Pantothenic Acid but 4-7mg daily for adults is thought to be adequate and therapeutic doses range from 50-250mg daily.

Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine)
Vitamin B6 is also called Pyridoxine, a water-soluble essential nutrient that is a member of the B complex family. Pyridoxine and its components are involved in nearly 100 enzyme based reactions including the conversion of tryptophan to serotonin, glucose production and regulating hormone levels. Regular alcohol consumption, cigarette smoking, oral contraceptives and stress readily deplete this water soluble nutrient. Insufficient dietary levels or deficiency can present as morning sickness in pregnancy, tiredness, fatigue, inflamed mouth and tongue, irregular moods and mood disorders and nervous system dysfunction. Good dietary sources include Brewer’s yeast, tuna, sunflower seeds, liver, walnuts, salmon, trout, lentils, buckwheat, beans, peas, hazelnuts, bananas, lean pork, brown rice, avocados, egg yolks and whole-wheat flour. The recommended daily allowance for Pyridoxine is 1.6-2.0mg daily for adults and therapeutic doses range from 30-500mg daily.

 

Vitamin B12
Vitamin B12 is also called cobalamin, a water-soluble essential nutrient that is a member of the B complex family. Cobalamin plays a vital role in nervous system functioning and is used by all DNA synthesizing cells in the folic acid cycle. Low levels of Intrinsic Factor (IF) which is made in stomach, regular alcohol consumption and the ageing process can all effect Cobalamin’s absorption and utilisation by the body. Insufficiency and deficiency are common and present as neurological dysfunction including peripheral neuropathy (numbness, tingling and neuritis), shortness of breath, fatigue, mood disorders, dizziness, tinnitus, cold hands and feet, pale skin, inflamed mouth and tongue, depression, psychosis, impaired mental function in the elderly, a low complete blood count (CBC) and pernicious anaemia. Cobalamin is synthesized by bacterial and exist in all animal products/foods, good dietary sources include liver and other offal meats, clams, oyster, mussels, sardines, eggs, tuna, trout, lamb, cheese and cottage cheese. The recommended daily allowance for Cobalamin is 3.0 micrograms in adults daily, it is extremely safe and no toxicity has been reported from high/therapeutic doses.

Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid)
Vitamin C is also called ascorbate, a water-soluble essential nutrient that unlike most mammals, humans cannot synthesis so it must be obtained from our diets. A powerful antioxidant Ascorbate helps to protect fats/lipids from free radical damage. Crucial to increasing certain activities of the immune system and it is also needed for collagen, elastin, carnitine, catecholamine synthesis and helps to recycle Vitamin E amongst many other important roles. Stress, regular alcohol consumption and illness all readily deplete this water soluble nutrient. Scurvy is the classic deficiency of Vitamin C but insufficient dietary levels can present as fatigue, bruising easily, bleeding gums when brushing teeth, gingivitis, sore mouth and tongue, poor wound healing, joint pain, loose teeth, low immunity and cardiovascular disease. Good dietary sources include fresh and raw plant foods like cherries, berries, guavas, red chili peppers, parsley, dark green leafy vegetables, broccoli, mango, red cabbage, cauliflower, lemons, grapefruit, melons, peas and beans, but also oysters and liver meat contain good dietary sources. The current recommended daily allowance is too low at 60mg daily for adults, nutritionally minded health practitioners suggest that a new level of 1,000mg daily for adults would be beneficial. Therapeutic doses range from 2,000-20,000 mg daily.

 

Vitamin D3
Vitamin D is also called calciferol, this fat soluble essential nutrient is a seco-steriod that exhibits hormone-like action in the body. Vitamin D is not required in dietary levels if there is sufficient sunlight to production within the skin, however this process can be hindered by skin pigment and sun screen/block. The body needs vitamin D to help maintain healthy levels of the minerals calcium and phosphorus, calcium can only be absorbed when Vitamin D is present. Low levels D3 makes the utilization of Calcium impossible which compromises bone health, causing demineralization the bone matrix to become less mineral based and more collagen based which can lead of Osteo-malacia in adults and Rickets in children. Common signs of insufficiency in both children and adults include muscle weakness and pain, bone pain, tiredness and fatigue and depression. Good dietary sources are typically from animal products including liver, sardines, butter, eggs, tuna, cheese and fortified milk, non-animal food sources include almonds, sunflower seeds, mushrooms and fortified tofu/soy products. The recommended daily allowance for Vitamin D is 200-400IU daily for adults. As with all fat-soluble nutrients high levels are likely to cause toxicity.

Vitamin E
Vitamin E is a general designation given to eight compounds in a family of vitamers, four of these are natural compounds called tocopherols and the other four a tocotrienols. These are fat-soluble and powerful antioxidants that protect lipids/fats from oxidation, aid digesting and absorbing fatty foods and are found throughout the body where there is a high level of exposure to oxygen, like lung tissue and neurons. Signs and symptoms of deficiency include muscle weakness, loss of co-ordination, loss of vibration and position senses, retinal dysfunction and poor transmission of nerve impulses and irregular reflexes. Good dietary sources include butter, wheatgerm oil, sunflower seeds & oil, almonds, sesame oil, peanut oil, peanuts, peanut butter, oatmeal, salmon, whole rye, eggs, carrots and peas. Recommended daily allowance for Vitamin E is 8-10IU for adults and therapeutic doses range from 100-1,200IU. Vitamin E is considered one of the safest vitamins, however caution should be extended when taken anticoagulant medication.

 

Folic acid
Folic acid is also called folacin, and folate and is a family of compounds that are water soluble members of the B complex family. Folate molecules are methyl and one-carbon atom donors, this means that they are crucial to all rapidly dividing cells like blood cells, gastrointestinal tract cells and germinal cells. Folate has been shown to prevent neural tube defects ranging from spina bifida to anencephaly. Synthesis of cysteine is folate dependent as is the methylation of brain myelin. Signs and symptoms of insufficient or deficient levels of folate can present as fatigue, depression, mood disorders, neurological damage, shortness of breath, pale skin, diarrhoea or poor appetite, cervical cellular changes and insomnia. Good dietary sources include Brewer’s yeast, wheat germ, rice germ, liver, soy beans, beans, asparagus, peanuts, split peas, dark green leafy vegetables and walnuts. The recommended daily allowing for Folic Acid is 400 micrograms a day for adults and the therapeutic doses range from 400-1000 micrograms daily.

 

Boron
Boron is a vital trace element/mineral that has multiple physiological roles from maintaining a healthy bone matrix and joint health, hormone regulation, liver detoxification pathways, and 26 different enzyme based reactions within the body. It works alongside Vitamin D in promoting calcium absorption from dietary sources. Therefore if Boron dietary levels are low or a deficiency exists calcium metabolism and its deficiency symptoms are likely causing poor bone density, altering immune system regulation increasing the risk of auto-immune conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, hyperthyroidism and other hormone imbalances. Common signs and symptoms of insufficient levels or deficiency can present as muscle weakness, poor concentration, PMS, premature ageing, joint pain, low testosterone levels in males and other hormone imbalances, increase calcium excretion and osteoporosis. Good dietary sources of Boron are abundant including apples, red grapes, plums, kiwi fruit, dates, avocado, almonds, Brazil nuts, hazelnuts, chickpeas, red kidney beans, peanuts, peanut butter, tomatoes and lentils. There currently is no set recommended daily allowance for Boron, however many guidelines suggest 1-6 mg daily for adults.

 

Biotin
Biotin is also called Vitamin B7, this water-soluble essential nutrient is a member of the B complex family. Biotin is vital to cell division and is a Co Enzyme in the synthesis of fatty acids, some amino acids and glucose. Due to Biotin’s crucial role in fatty acid synthesis good levels are needed for the promotion of healthy skin, hair and nails. Intestinal bacteria/flora are largely responsible for biotin so broad spectrum antibiotics may effect biotin levels. Regular alcohol consumption, stress and consuming egg whites regular can all effect biotin absorption. Signs and symptoms of low dietary levels or deficiency can present as fatigue, muscle weakness and pain, dandruff, seborrheic/scaly dermatitis, thinning hair, facial skin rash, brittle nails, poor blood glucose management, insulin resistance, yellow skin lesions, nausea, depression, low muscle tone and hypotonia and alopecia. Good dietary sources include Brewer’s yeast, liver, soybeans, rice bran and germ, egg yolk, peanut butter, barley, oats, sardines, peas, almonds, mushrooms and cauliflower. The recommended daily allowance for Biotin is 100-200 micrograms and therapeutic doses range from 300-3000 micrograms.

 

Kelp (NZ origin)
As a sea vegetable, Kelp has been shown to contain 46 minerals, 16 amino acids (the building blocks of protein) and 11 different vitamins. A dense source of minerals including zinc, iodine, magnesium, iron, potassium, copper and calcium. In fact NZ Kelp contains the highest natural concentration of calcium of any food - 10 times more than milk. Through this vast nutrient content, Kelp helps to support overall metabolism and nourish the thyroid gland in particular with high levels of iodine and selenium. There is no daily recommended allowance or intake for Kelp as it is classed as a food.

 

Iron
Iron is a vital essential element that has both metabolic and enzyme based functions in the body. Two thirds of all iron found in the body is involved in enzyme based reactions and a high percentage of that amount is found in the heme part of hemoglobin. As part of hemoglobin and myoglobin Iron is key to the transport and release of oxygen in tissue. Other functions of Iron include collagen synthesis, helping maintain normal immune function and cellular energy production Iron absorption can be compromised in several health conditions including low hydrochloric acid levels (hypo-chlorhydria), long term or high dose use of Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory (NSAID) medicines like Aspirin and other pain killers can cause gastric bleeding can induce deficiency. Low levels of zinc, vitamins A and C can also effect iron absorption as can high levels of calcium. Low dietary levels or deficiency of Iron results in severe anemia, decreased energy levels, decreased immune function and slow mental processing. Common signs and symptoms include tiredness and fatigue, shortness of breath, frequent infections and increased blood glucose levels. Good dietary sources include kelp, nori, dulse, Brewer’s yeast, pumpkin seeds, wheat germ, sunflower seeds, liver, clams, lean beef, raisins, almonds, dates, walnuts, eggs, lamb, ripe olives, beetroot, red cabbage, figs and millet. The recommended daily allowance for Iron is 12-30mg daily for adults with higher levels for menstruating females.

 

Zinc
Zinc is an essential mineral that is important to enzyme and hormone activities. A potent antioxidant that is important for protein and DNA synthesis that has vital immune boosting abilities, Zinc is important to skin and bone health, helps heal wounds, maintain bowel health and protect fertility and prostate in men. Regular alcohol consumption, infections and poor dietary levels can cause insufficiency and deficiency of Zinc. Common signs and symptoms of low Zinc levels include skin changes, hair loss, recurrent infections, slow wound healing, sleep disturbances, diarrhea, dandruff, reduced appetite, and immunological disorders and auto-immune diseases like Rheumatoid Arthritis. Good dietary sources of Zinc include oysters, kelp, nori, dulse, Brazil nuts, mussels, clams, walnuts, almonds, buckwheat, cod liver oil, lean lamb, butter, barley, garlic, ginger root and eggs.

 

Calcium
Calcium is a vitally important essential mineral to health and is needed to maintain strong bones and teeth, it supports regular heart rhythm as it assists in muscle contractions and nerve transmission and helps to maintain blood pressure. 95-99% of total calcium in the body forms the mineral matrix of bone tissue and the body goes to great lengths to maintain the remaining levels in plasma. Soft tissue Calcium levels mediate the constriction and relaxation of blood vessels, nerve impulse transmission, muscle contraction, and the secretion of hormones like insulin. If blood and soft tissue levels of calcium are lacking through the diet then the body draws what is needed from the bone mass which overtime can lead to decalcification and osteoporosis. Common signs and symptoms of low dietary levels and deficiency of calcium include numbness and tingling of the fingers, muscle spasms, twitches, high blood pressure (hypertension), headaches, irregular heart rhythm (arrhythmias), insomnia, lethargy, decreased appetite and dizziness. Good dietary sources of Calcium include Kelp, nori, dulse, almonds, Brazil nuts, chestnuts, walnuts, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, beet greens, kales, beans, oysters, mackerel, sardines, salmon, shrimp and cabbage family. The recommended daily allowance for calcium is 800-1200mg daily for adults.

 

Magnesium
Magnesium is an essential mineral that is needed for over 300 different enzyme based reactions in the body. Other roles that Magnesium has includes muscle relaxation, protein and fat synthesis and energy production. Approximately 80% of all Magnesium is contained in smooth muscle and the bone matrix. The remaining plasma levels help to regulate cellular metabolism, blood vessel tone and dilation. Insufficient dietary levels or deficiency can lead to high blood pressure, muscle twitches, spasms and cramps, irregular cardiac output and rhythm, angina, PMS, migraines, insulin resistances, hypoglycemia, insomnia, mood irregularity, kidney stones, confusion, irritability, decreased appetite and fatigue. Good dietary sources of Magnesium include Kelp, nori, dulse, wheat bran and germ, almonds, buckwheat, Brazil nuts, millet, walnuts, tofu, dried figs, dates, avocado, cheddar cheese, parsley, sunflower seeds and beans. The recommended daily allowance is 250-355mg daily for adults.

 

Copper
Copper is an essential trace element that is key to many enzyme based reactions in the body including key antioxidant formation, hemoglobin synthesis and aerobic energy production. Copper has many roles in the body and is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compound. Deficiency of copper although rare but low dietary levels and insufficiency can manifest as poor collagen integrity including broken blood vessels and joint problems, low white blood cell counts, high cholesterol levels, reduced skin pigmentation, anemia, muscle weakness and other neurological disturbances. Good dietary sources include oysters, Brazil nuts, almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, buckwheat, cod liver oil, lamb, pork, barley, butter and ginger root

 

Lycopene
Lycopene is a fat-soluble bright red pigment found in plants like tomatoes, it is one of the six hundred members of a larger pigment family called carotenoids. Lycopene is a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compound that has key roles in maintaining cellular integrity, has a role in eye health, it acts as an internal sunscreen protecting the skin from UV radiation and has cardio and neurological protective factors. Good dietary sources include tomatoes, carrots, pink grapefruit, watermelon, guava, papaya, asparagus and parsley. There is no daily recommended daily allowance for lycopene as it is classed as food and therefore there are currently no deficiency signs or symptoms are associated with low dietary consumption.

 

Marigold Flower (Lutein)
Thought to be native of southern Europe, Calendula officinalis or the common Marigold has more than just a joyful look in the garden, its petals contain yellow/orange pigment called lutein. Lutein is one of the six hundred members of a larger pigment family called carotenoids that are powerful antioxidants. Lutein has an affinity with the Retina and Macular Lutea of the eye helping to protect against free radical damage cause by blue UV light that are implicated in cataract formation and macular degeneration. Lutein is also found in the skin and helps to protect against UV radiation damage, fantastic support of the lymphatic system and aiding detoxification processes of the liver. Good dietary sources of lutein include eggs, papaya, guava, oranges, Brussel sprouts, corn, dark green leafy vegetables like kale, and spinach. Currently there is no recommended daily allowance for Lutein but low dietary levels are associated with an increased risk of developing cataracts, macular degeneration, skin cancer and cardiovascular disease.

 

Selenium
Selenium is an essential tract element that are vital for maintaining health and preventing disease. Selenium along with Vitamin E are components of the bodies master antioxidant enzyme, Glutathione Peroxidase. Which protects DNA from free radical damage and without this key component oxidative damage occurs leaving cells at risk from DNA transcription errors. Selenium has anti-viral activity, reduces both heavy metal toxicity and inflammation, it is essential to thyroid hormone regulation and is key to energy levels. Selenium also recycles other antioxidants such as Vitamins C and E and CoEnzyme Q10. Selenium is vital to mental health in regulating mood and preventing depression. Low dietary levels and deficiency signs and symptoms include poor antioxidant activity and free radical damage, recurrent illness and infections, fatigue, brain fog, discoloured skin and nails, even hair loss, hypothyroidism, depression and infertility. NZ has low Selenium soil levels and to obtain good dietary sources, foods that are NZ grown and reared cannot contribute to dietary levels. Good dietary sources include kelp, nori, dulse, Brazil nuts, tuna, herring, halibut, snapper, apple cider vinegar, crab, oysters, shrimp, cod, scallops and garlic. The recommended daily allowance for Selenium is 40-70 micrograms for adults. High levels of Selenium (400+mcg daily) can be toxic and should be avoided.

 

Manganese
Manganese is an essential trace element/mineral that is key to a wide array of metabolic functions including carbohydrate metabolism, bone development, collagen formation, fatty acid and protein synthesis and multiple enzyme based reactions. Manganese has potent antioxidant activity and low dietary levels and deficiency signs and symptoms can been seen systemically but include poor carbohydrate and fat metabolism, skin rashes, slow hair and nail growth and fatigue. Good dietary sources of Manganese include pecans, Brazil nuts, almonds, barley, rye, buckwheat, whole wheat, walnuts, Brussels sprouts, millet, eggs, carrots and raisins. There is currently no recommended daily allowance for Manganese but safe and adequate ranges are 2.5-5 mg daily.

 

Chromium
Chromium is an essential tract element/mineral that is a co-factor in glucose tolerance factor (GTF) which has the main function to work with insulin in metabolizing carbohydrates, fats and proteins and energy production at a cellular level. Insufficiency can be common in those on certain medication and with elevated blood sugar and insulin levels. Cells may become less sensitive to insulin as a result. Impaired glucose tolerance and type 2 diabetes are associated with changes in fat profiles and increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Low dietary levels or deficiency can cause fatigue, anxiety, poor blood sugar management, altered cholesterol and triglyceride metabolism. There is currently no recommended daily allowance for Chromium but safe and adequate levels are 50-200 micrograms daily for adults, therapeutic doses range from 200-900mcg daily.

 

Potassium
Potassium is an essential mineral that is classed as an electrolyte in the body. Potassium is a major component of the fluid found inside cells and as such is key to nerve transmission, muscle contractions, glucose metabolism and cellular integrity. Low levels or deficiency can cause changes in the central nervous system, muscle weakness, irregular cardiac output and slow heart rhythm. Good dietary sources include kelp, dulse, nori, wheat germ, almonds, raisins, parsley, dates, avocados, garlic, walnuts, millet, beans, mushrooms, banana, squash, kumara, radishes, asparagus, red cabbage and tomato. There is currently no agreement for a recommended daily allowance but safe and adequate levels are 3,000-5,000 mg.
