Appeton Multivitamin Hi-Q Taurine (60 Chewable Tabs)
RM 38.30
Shopee

Appeton Multivitamin Hi-Q Taurine with DHA (Tablet) is a dietary supplement for children, who can start to chew, to improve their brain and eyedevelopment. Genetic, environment and nutrition are factors that affect development of the brain and, therefore, the cognitive development of children. The role of nutrition is important because it is one factor that can be modified in order to optimize cognitive development. Having a sufficient amount of nutrients is essential for proper intellectual growth amongst children. For example, Taurine and Docosahexanoic acid (DHA) are both very vital nutrients for intellectual development. Taurine can be found abundantly in the brain, muscle and retina. It helps in facilitating signal transmission by acting as a component of neurotransmitter. Taurine is a conditionally essential amino acid, which means that under special condition, body may not be able to produce enough Taurine. Injury, stress, disease and even exercise deplete Taurine and the body may not be able to maintain the level in the short time. Even though Taurine can be found mostly in meat and fish, the amount of Taurine decreases when cooked. Therefore, it is vital to provide sufficient intake of Taurine in the children’s diet. Docosahexanoic acid (DHA) is polyunsaturated fatty acid (good fat), commonly found in deep sea fatty fish such as tuna, mackerel, sardine, salmon and anchovy. DHA represents a high proportion of the fats found in the brain and eyes. DHA is necessary for the development and maintenance of optimal structure and function of nerve cells in the brain and eyes. Hence, it is necessary for children to obtain sufficient DHA which is still accumulating in the brain through toddlerhood. A sufficient amount of multivitamin (example: Vitamin A, D, B, C and E) is required daily and continuous supply is needed especially for water soluble vitamins (Vitamin B and C) which are not stored in the body. Appeton Multivitamin Taurine with DHA is a dietary supplement fortified with Taurine and DHA work synergistically to help intellectual and eyes development in children. Features •Chewable tablet •In star shaped with fruity flavors. Indication •Children from 1 – 3 years old : 1 tablet daily •Children from 4 – 8 years old : 1-2 tablets daily •Children from 9 years old and above : 1-3 tablets daily

Kordel's Kordel's, Vitamin E 400 IU
RM 53.80
Koyara

E 400 IU Vitamin E is a powerful scavenger of highly reactive free radicals in our body. Adequate levels of vitamin E are essential to protect our body from oxidative damage. Vitamin E 400Iu provides vitamin E in the form of d-alpha tocopherol, the most bioavailable form of this vitamin. Benefits A Potent Antioxidant As they accumulate, free radicals can destroy cells, leading to degenerative diseases such as cancer and heart disease. This damage can also bring out the signs of ageing, including wrinkling of the skin, as well as increase one’s susceptibility to illness. Being a powerful antioxidant, vitamin E can help prevent the onset and progression of these conditions. Heart Health Scientific evidence has shown the effectiveness of vitamin E in reducing the risk of heart disease. The Cambridge Heart Antioxidant Study (Chaos) which had 2000 patients taking 400-800Iu of vitamin E daily found that vitamin E reduced the risk of heart attacks by 77%. Research at the Harvard School of Public Health has also shown reductions in the risk of heart disease among people who consume high doses of vitamin E. The cardioprotective effects of vitamin E are attributed to its antioxidant properties, i.e. its ability to prevent the oxidation of Ldl, which plays an important role in the causation of atherosclerosis. Studies have also shown that oral supplementation of large doses of vitamin E increases the resistance of LDL to oxidation. This is consistent with the Harvard findings that a vitamin E intake far higher than that achievable through diet alone is needed to reduce the risk of heart disease. Vitamin E, being a natural blood thinner, helps to improve blood circulation and prevents blockages in the coronary arteries. Other Findings on Vitamin E and Cardiovascular Diseases The use of vitamin E supplements was associated with a significantly reduced risk of coronary disease in Canadian men. Low dietary vitamin E intake was associated with elevated coronary mortality in Finnish men and women. Vitamin E enhanced the benefits of aspirin by reducing the incidence of strokes in high risk patients. The use of vitamin E supplements was associated with slower progression of coronary artery lesions in men taking cholesterol-lowering drugs and in those taking inactive placebos. The use of vitamin E supplements was associated with a lower risk of recurrence of coronary blockage in patients who had been treated for previous blockages. Two studies on diabetics (a high risk group for cardiovascular disease) showed beneficial changes in lipid peroxidation and other biochemical factors after vitamin E supplementation. Reduced Cancer Risk Smokers need more vitamin E because of the oxidative stress that smoking puts on the lungs. In studies carried out on smokers, the use of vitamin E supplements was associated with a significant decrease in the risk of lung cancer. There is also increasing evidence that an elevated intake of vitamin E correlates with a decrease in incidence of other forms of cancer e.g. oral, skin and colon cancers. Indications As an antioxidant supplement. Helps protect against certain types of heart disease and cancers.

A Harvard review published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 2002 recommended that all adults should take a multivitamin daily.

In addition recent studies have shown that the nutrient levels in fruits, vegetables and some food crops have declined in the past 50 years. This may be primarily due to the way food is grown, processed and prepared. Dosage Adults – Take 1 tablet a day with a meal. Caution Always read the label. Use only as directed.

Blackmores Odourless Fish Oil 1000mg 400cap
RM 82.90 RM 122.00
Shopee

Polysorbate 80 is an artificial chemical that's used in shampoos, cosmetics and some foods as an emulsifier. It can also be added to fish oils to lesson 'fishy' reflux, and this certainly leaves a bad taste in our mouths. Because at Blackmores we prefer to use more natural ingredients, such as lemon and vanilla flavours, to keep our fish oils odourless. And it's our dedication to ensuring our products remain as naturally free from artifical chemicals as possible. Which means the only thing that's fishy about Blackmores Odourless Fish Oil is the goodness of the fish oil - without artificial flavours or chemicals such as polysorbate 80 - to help you be your best. Features and benefits No fishy aftertaste, developed without the use of artificial surfactants (polysorbates) Vanilla-lemon flavouring masks any fishy odours Natural source of omega-3s Helps to reduce inflammation and joint swelling associated with arthritis Helps to support heart and cardiovascular health Helps to assist in the maintenance of normal eye and brain function Helps to decrease triglycerides (fat) in the blood of healthy people Mercury tested How it works Fish oil is a source of the omega-3 essential fatty acids. Essential fatty acids are incorporated into every cell membrane in the body, in the form of compounds called phospholipids. Cell membranes play the vital role of regulating what goes into, and what comes out of, each cell. The integrity and fluidity of the cell membrane is determined by the type of phospholipid that is available for the body to use. Cell membranes made up mainly of phospholipids derived from the essential polyunsaturated fatty acids are more fluid and function better than cell membranes made up of saturated fat or trans-fatty acids. A cell membrane working at optimal levels retains vital nutrients and electrolytes, has the ability to communicate with other cells and is responsive to hormones. Omega-3 fatty acids are also important components of substances known as prostaglandins and leukotrienes. Prostaglandins and leukotrienes are important in immune function, smooth muscle function, platelet aggregation and inflammation. Fish oils have an anti-inflammatory action because prostaglandins and leukotrienes from omega-3 fatty acids have less inflammatory activity than prostaglandins and leukotrienes derived from other types of fatty acids. For arthritis: Adults - Take up to 4 capsules 3 times a day with meals, or as professionally prescribed. Children under 12 years - Only as professionally prescribed. As an omega-3 supplement: Adults - Take 3 capsules a day with a meal, or as professionally prescribed. Children 6-12 years - Take 1 to 2 capsules a day (pierce and squeeze into milk, juice or cereal), or as professionally prescribed. Children 2-6 years - Take 1 capsule a day (pierce and squeeze into milk, juice or cereal).

Appeton Multivitamin Lysine (60 chewable tablets)
RM 33.70 RM 49.90
Shopee

Appeton Multivitamin Lysine with Prebiotics (Tablet) Appeton Multivitamin Lysine with Prebiotics Tablet is a dietary supplement for children, who can start to chew, to improve their appetite, digestive health and promote growth. Some children develop poor appetite and poor eating habit because of pressure from school, illness, attraction to fast food, having too many activities and hectic timetables in school. This will result in a poor performance in school, frequent illness, weight loss, fatigue and further loss of their appetite. Children that are lacking in certain nutrients will also cause a reduction of appetite and growth. Lysine and vitamin B complex are good examples. Lysine is an essential amino acid that cannot be synthesized in the human body. Although Lysine can be derived from cereals such as wheat, rice and corn, it is insufficient in quantity. Furthermore, cooking, baking and deep-frying reduce the Lysine content in food. On the other hand, vitamin B complex, which is water-soluble vitamins, are easily destroyed or leached out during food storage and preparation. Lysine helps in calcium absorption, which is an essential nutrient to enhance bone growth. It also promotes muscle growth, height gain and weight gain. Lysine enhances the metabolism with Vitamin B Complex. This combination helps to improve appetite due to higher body metabolism and demand towards food intake. Appeton Multivitamin Lysine with Prebiotics contains prebiotics that are derived from inulin and oligofructose. Prebiotics are present as fibre in a number of vegetables and plants including wheat, onion, bananas, garlic and chicory. The human intestine is made up of both beneficial and harmful bacteria. Intestinal infection may occur when the number of harmful bacteria outgrows the beneficial ones. Prebiotics stimulate the growth and restore the balance of good bacteria in the digestive tract. This will increase the number of beneficial bacteria and decreases the population of potentially pathogenic bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract, resulting in a healthy digestive system. A sufficient amount of multivitamin (example: Vitamin A, D, B, C and E) is required daily and continuous supply is needed especially for water soluble vitamins (vitamin B and Vitamin C) which are not stored in the body. #lysine #multivitamin #increase #appetite

Everything you Need to Know about Vitamins and its Impact on Nutrition

Vitamins are some sort of organic chemical and nutrient that are present in all living things, be it humans, animals, or plants. Vitamins are very important and are needed to sustain our life. Humans get vitamins through the food they eat as our body usually does not in amounts that are enough to sustain our life. It should be noted that humans' vitamins needs are vastly different than that of animals or plants as we have different biology. There are 13 different vitamins that are currently recognized.

Where do we get our vitamins?

We (humans) get our vitamins from food sources mainly, although Vitamin D is produced in our skin by exposure to the sunlight - or ultraviolet B light from the sun, to be precise. The vitamins that we absorb from food usually come from healthy alternatives such as fruits, vegetables, and meat. Therefore it is very vital that we should have a balanced diet that involves a proper portion of every type of food to get the optimal amount of vitamins.

Besides food, however, we can take vitamin pills and supplements in the event we cannot receive enough vitamins through our daily food intake.
