Essential Nutrients & Minerals, also know as micronutrients (because we don’t need much of them) play a vital role in the body and are called essential because we don’t naturally produce them, we need to obtain them through food or supplements.

There are a number of essential vitamins as well, the majority of them are B vitamins, which you can read about, where we talked about The Importance Of B Vitamins.

Nutrients and minerals, play a number of important roles in the body and as with B vitamins and Omega 3, if you’re eating a varied, nutrient-dense diet, you’ll likely have a mineral-rich diet but we know that isn’t always the case.

The various solutions products across the Cleanmarine range include different nutrients and minerals to cater for different requirements for men, women and children.

What’s in what?

Zinc is a nutrient that plays many vital roles in your body with numerous functions & health benefits.

The list of health benefits approved by EFSA (European Food Standards Agency) for Zinc is extensive and there are too many to list here, but one of the primary benefits and why it’s in Cleanmarine For Men is that it contributes to the maintenance of normal testosterone levels in the blood. It also contributes to the normal function of the immune system and normal cognitive function making it a really useful nutrient for men with an active lifestyle.

Another useful nutrient which is found in Cleanmarine For Men, is Coenzyme Q10 (ubiquinone), often shortened to CoQ10. CoQ10 is present in every cell of your body and can be produced naturally although this process decreases as you get older. Co Q10 is stored in the mitochondria of the body’s cells, which has primary use of taking in nutrients, breaking them down and then using them to create energy.

You might have never heard of Selenium but it’s an essential mineral, which is vital to your health. It is only needed in small amounts, which should easily be obtained in your diet, although men may need more than women, which is why we’ve included it in our Cleanmarine For Men.

Selenium plays a major role in important processes in the body like metabolism and thyroid function, as well as contributing to the maintenance of normal hair and nails.

Turmeric (yes, the bright yellow spice) has several health-boosting properties for your body and brai, the main one being that it helps reduce anti-inflammatory markers in the body and contributes to normal liver function.

What about the other vitamins?

We’ve talked about The Importance Of B Vitamins already, but we couldn’t not mentioned vitamin d3, one of the most widely known vitamins around.

According to some studies in the UK, approximately 1 in 5 people are said to have low vitamin D levels, which is high, considering the importance of it to your body and the fact that every single cell in the body has a receptor for it.

Vitamin D can be found in food, although getting it from food alone is tough and it should absorbed through the skin, from direct exposure to sunlight. This is achievable between April – September in the UK, but from October – March, it’s advisable to supplement.

The recommended daily intake (RDI) from the NHS is around 400IU, but many experts say you should get even more than that. The Cleanmarine range, contains 10ug of Vitamin D3 which on the IU scales is 400IU.

Another vitamin used in Cleanmarine Cardio 40+ is vitamin K2, most people have never heard of but it has in some studies been shown to pull calcium form the arteries and redeposit it in the bones, improving overall heart health as well as bone health.
