Our OV Natural Energy Boost tablets contain a formula of four vitamins and two herbal extracts. The body utilises the six nutrients to support energy production. These nutrients include Vitamin B3, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Vitamin C, Maca Root extract and Cordyceps Sinensis.
Vitamin B3, otherwise known as Niacin, is a water-soluble vitamin that is formed from tryptophan, an amino acid. The vitamin naturally occurs in yeast, poultry, fish, red meat, almonds and wheat products. The main function of VItamin B3 is to contribute to normal energy production which reduces feelings of tiredness and fatigue as a result.
The Vitamin B6 included in our OV Natural Energy Boost tablets is pyridoxine, one of the three forms of Vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 naturally occurs in certain vegetables, such as in sweet potatoes and spinach, fish, wholegrain products, pork and milk. Vitamin B6 plays a role in normal glycogen and protein synthesis, two nutrients which are used to produce energy. The vitamins also benefit the immune system as when our immunity levels are low, we feel symptoms of fatigue.
Vitamin B12 is found in four forms: Hydroxycobalamin, Methylcobalamin, Cyanocobalamin and Adenosylcobalamin. Our OV Natural Energy Boost tablets include the Cyanocobalamin form of Vitamin B12 which is produced via the fermentation of Pseudomonas dentrificans. Natural food sources of the vitamin are mainly of animal origin, including red meat, poultry, milk and eggs. Just like Vitamins B3 and B6, Vitamin B12 is primarily known for its role in energy production. The vitamin also boosts the body's neurological and psychological systems which reduce feelings of fatigue.
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, commonly known for its potent antioxidant properties to protect DNA, proteins and lipids from oxidative damage. The vitamin is also well known due to its deficiency disease, scurvy, which was first treated in 1747 by James Lind. Vitamin C is found in an array of foods such as red pepper, cabbage, carrots, mango, strawberries, oranges and potatoes. Vitamin C works to contribute to normal energy yield which reduces feelings of fatigue. The vitamin also plays a part in maintaining the immune system after intense physical exercise which aids a quick recovery after exercise.
Maca Root extract
The Maca in these tablets is extracted from the root of the Lepidium meyenii plant. The Maca plant originates from the Andes mountains where it is thought that the root was given to the native warriors (Inca warriors) many, many years ago. Maca is an excellent source of protein, fibre, Vitamin C, Copper and Iron. Maca has been taken as a natural source of energy for hundreds of years, contributing to stamina and athletic performance.
Cordyceps Sinensis is a fungus that lives on caterpillars in the mountainous regions of China. The fungus is incredibly rare but popular in Tibetan and Chinese medicine. Its primary role is as an antioxidant to protect cells from the harmful nature of free radicals, promoting a healthy immune function which is optimal for energy production.
