We supply a range of pure liquid vitamins and minerals from the Metabolics UK Range as starting materials that are prescribed, prepared and dispensed by practitioners to their patients based on clinical examination and findings.
Activated vitamins are in a form that is immediately available to be utilised by the body as a substrate in biochemical reactions immediately following ingestion. This means that they do not have to be broken down and manufactured by the body into a usable form as is the case with the inactive vitamins. This is beneficial if there is a problem with the process of digestion or if some enzymatic functions are lacking in some way.
Activated vitamins are important co-factors in many body processes.
For example: In the case of Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate (P-5-P or activated B6) it is involved in more than 80% of reactions in the neurochemistry of the brain and nervous system.
Ionic minerals are metallic ions that have completely dissociated from their naturally occurring compounds, just as should occur after ingestion by the reaction of hydrochloric acid in the stomach. All metallic mineral ions are absorbed through the gastro intestinal wall by diffusion or through special channels called ionophores.
A mineral in its ionic form provides the best and most effective absorption.
