This vitamin is essential in the metabolism of proteins. It makes the liberation of glycogen from the liver and muscles easier and helps to support good balance in sodium and potassium that regulates fluids bodily and favours the good functioning of the nervous and muscular systems. It also helps antibodies, improves skin health and reduces numbness of the hand, cramps in legs, muscular spasms and nausea. According to a clinical study26 Vitamin B6 deficiency should be considered as another possible precipitating factor in recurrent aphthous ulceration.
Also called vitamin B3 or niacin, Vitamin PP is a water-soluble vitamin. Organisms can produce niacin from the tryptophan which is an amino acid; however a person who has deficiency in vitamin B1 and B6 cannot produce niacin from the tryptophan. Vitamin B3 is essential for the synthesis of sexual hormones (estrogens, testosterone) as well as for cortisone, thyroxin and insulin. It is also important to the nervous system and the brain. It helps to reduce the rates of cholesterol and of triglycerides and allows the body to metabolize lipids. Niacin has a positive action on the health of the digestive system and relieves gastro-intestinal disturbances. It prevents some headaches and reduces their intensity. Vitamin B3 increases blood circulation and diminishes blood pressure. It is said to play a role in the elimination of canker sores.
The mineral zinc is present in every part of the body and has a wide range of functions. It helps with the healing of wounds and is a vital component of many enzyme reactions. Zinc is vital for the healthy working of many of the body's systems. It is particularly important for healthy skin and is essential for a healthy immune system and resistance to infection. Zinc has a range of functions. It plays a crucial role in growth and cell division where it is required for protein and DNA synthesis, in insulin activity, in the metabolism of the ovaries and testes, and in liver function. As a component of many enzymes, zinc is involved in the metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates, lipids and energy.
Our body contains about 2-3g of zinc. There are no specific storage sites known for zinc and so a regular supply in the diet is required. Zinc is found in all parts of our body, 60% is found in muscle, 30% in bone and about 5% in our skin. Particularly high concentrations are in the prostate gland and semen. Men need more zinc than women because male semen contains 100 times more zinc than is found in the blood. The more sexually active a man, the more zinc he will require. The recommended amounts of zinc for adult men are 1/3 higher than those for women.
The first signs of zinc deficiency are impairment of taste, a poor immune response and skin problems. Other symptoms of zinc deficiency can include hair loss, diarrhea, fatigue, delayed wound healing, canker sores, decreased growth rate and mental development in infants. It is thought that zinc supplementation can help skin conditions such as acne and eczema, canker sores, prostate problems, anorexia nervosa, alcoholics and those suffering from trauma or post-surgery.
