Happy Maternity is a product formulated with ingredients that perform various actions to support well-being during maternity, a very delicate and important period for mothers: Zinc contributes to normal fertility and normal reproduction while Folate contributes to the growth of maternal tissues during pregnancy . Calcium intervenes in the process of division and specialization of cells and vitamins C and E contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress. Vitamins B2, B1 and B6 contribute to normal energy metabolism.
Vitamin D is necessary for bone formation:
-deposition of calcium and phosphate in the cartilaginous regions;
-absorption of calcium (and with it phosphate);
-mobilization of calcium from bones.
Zinc is an essential element in the nutrition of humans and animals and plays a wide range of biological roles. Plant zinc is less available because by binding to phytic acid it can form an insoluble complex that is not absorbed. It has properties:
-contributes to normal fertility and reproduction;
-Zinc contributes to normal DNA synthesis;
-contributes to normal cognitive function;
-and maintaining bone well-being.
For this reason it is very important to include zinc-rich foods in your diet or to supplement a deficient diet.
Vitamin E or tocopherol is a fat-soluble vitamin, whose main role is to protect the body's tissues from harmful reactions (peri-oxidation) and free radicals, in this way it also protects cell membranes by preventing the peroxidation of membrane phospholipids.
Folic acid is a vitamin that after being absorbed in the intestine, is activated by the liver, where it will be transformed into folinic acid, which will then be distributed to various tissues. When it comes to folic acid, it would be more correct to speak of folate, since there is a whole family of substances with a structure and biological activity analogous to that of the classic vitamin B9. During intestinal absorption these provitamins are reduced in their simplest form, called, indeed, folic acid.
Vitamin B9 is essential to human life because it intervenes in the synthesis of nucleic acids, it is indeed very important for cell growth and reproduction.
Folic acid and its derivatives participate in the synthesis of hemoglobin and some amino acids, such as methionine and glutamic acid. They are very important for growth, for reproduction and for the proper functioning of the nervous system.
The B vitamins perform many functions, all different and essential for the human body; their intake with the diet should be constantly adequate and, although they are molecules mostly storable in the liver, in maintaining the state of health their intake must comply primarily with the recommended rations and secondly also the individual needs. Like many other B vitamins, it plays the role of coenzyme (in energy metabolism) as well as contributing to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
Vitamin B2 is commonly found in foods of animal origin and in whole grains or mushrooms. It is a coenzyme constituent (FAD and FMN) and also participates in the maintenance of normal red blood cells and iron metabolism, essential during pregnancy.
Niacin is found mainly in foods of animal origin, but also in legumes; it can be synthesized starting from the essential amino acid tryptophan. It is a coenzyme constituent (NAD and NADP) and intervenes in the metabolism of lipids, carbohydrates and protides.
Vitamin B6 is found in whole grains, liver, spinach, peas and bananas, and is a constituent of coenzymes that participate in the metabolism of amino acids.
Vitamin B12 is a B group vitamin with an action on red blood cells; it is stored in good quantities in the human liver and, in its ACTIVE form, is found exclusively in food of animal origin: meat, eggs, fish, molluscs, liver, kidneys and milk. It goes to make up a coenzyme useful for different functions: it contributes to the synthesis of nucleic acids, determines the replication of red blood cells and promotes the functioning of the nervous system.
