BIOTIN
Filed under: General
Posted by: @ 3:30 am

Dr.Abhay Kumar Pati, Author, Best Nutrition Inc USA
www.bestnutrition.com, www.nutritionbest.com, www.ayurvedicsupplements.com, www.biotechayur.com

DESCRIPTION

Biotin is sometimes referred to as “vitamin H” or “coenzyme R.” It was first discovered as a factor that protected against the toxicity of raw egg whites.  It is destroyed when eggs are thoroughly cooked.

Biotin is required in the process of energy production in the cells of the body. It may help prevent premature graying and balding.

Deficiency symptoms

In adults, inadequate biotin consumption can lead to a scaly dermatitis and hair loss.  Deficiency is more commonly seen in infants in whom the scaly dermatitis is described as “cradle cap.”

Therapeutic uses

Those Who may need to supplement

REQUIRED NUTRITIONAL INTAKE

The COMA report of 1991 suggested daily intake of biotin from 10 to 200 mcg. The range described is very wide because not enough is yet known about biotin to be more specific. Actual dietary intake of biotin has been found to be between 10 and 58 mcg daily.

Best food sources

Food Biotin (mcg/100g)
brewer’s yeast 80
pig’s kidney 32
yeast extract 27
pig’s liver 27
wheat bran 14
wheat germ 12
chicken 10
lamb 6
bread, whole-meal 6
fish, fatty 5

 

SAFETY

Having been reportedly given to young infants at doses of up to 40 mg without problems, biotin is regarded as a safe vitamin.

INTERACTIONS & CONTRAINDICATIONS

Biotin, as one of the B-complex vitamins, is best taken as part of the group of B vitamins, although single supplementation is safe as part of a nutritional therapeutic program.

BEET ROOT NEWEST PRODUCT FROM BEST NUTRITION
Filed under: General
Posted by: @ 3:01 am

BEET NITRATE (Patent Pending), an Organic Source of Nitric Oxide

By: Dr. Kumar Pati, CEO, www.bestnutrition.com

Beet Root

Beets, (Beta vulgaris L) also called beetroot, have been consumed and believed to be a nutritious vegetable. Beetroot is a dark red vegetable which has been linked with so many health benefits including better stamina, improved blood flow and lowering blood pressure. Rather than drinking beet juice, isolated molecules from Beet Juice in capsule form alone has many health boosting benefits. Beet Root isolated compound from beet juice increases blood flow to the brain in older people, which may be able to fight the progression of dementia and acts as a good neurotransmitter.
Beet Root Extract is a natural organic nitric oxide which helps lower blood pressure and it is a nutrient that acts as a vasodilator. Vasodilators are agents that widen the blood vessels, therefore, cause a decrease in vascular resistance and an increase in blood flow. Vasodilators are used to treat hypertension, angina and congestive heart failure.
Beet Root Extract contains phytopigments called betalains. The two types of betalain compounds, betanin and vulgaxanthin, are high in anti-oxidant properties. These compounds help to detoxify the body. These betalain compounds can suppress cyclooxygenase enzymes, which can contribute to tumor growth. Beet Root is a rich source of folate, manganese and also contains thiamine, riboflavin, vitamin B6, pantothenic acid, choline, betaine, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, copper and selenium as well as nitrates. Beet Root tends to contain Inorganic Nitrate (NO3-), as the main bioactive for cardiovascular and endurance exercise interactions
Carbohydrates, Protein and Fat in beet root: In addition to being low in calories, the Beet Root supplement is also much lower in carbohydrates, but the juice is a better source of protein. Carbohydrates provide energy, while protein supports muscle mass, immune system and body repair.
Best Nutrition Products Inc. introduces Beet Nitrate to its consumers as a new  nutrient in 2017.

COBALAMIN (B12)
Filed under: General
Posted by: @ 3:57 am

Dr.Abhay Kumar Pati, Author, Best Nutrition Inc USA
www.bestnutrition.com, www.nutritionbest.com, www.ayurvedicsupplements.com, www.biotechayur.com

DESCRIPTION

Cobalamin was the last true vitamin to be classified. Vitamin B12 is found in most animal products and some bacteria.  Vegetarians and especially vegans can easily become deficient in cobalamin because it is not found in fruits, vegetables, or any other plant sources.  Vitamin B12 requires intrinsic factor, secreted by the stomach lining, to be absorbed in the intestines.

Cobalamin helps maintain a healthy nervous system. It maintains the protective “myelin sheath” around the nerves and is used to metabolize fatty acids. Vitamin B12 promotes growth in children and is needed for the production of red blood cells.

DEFICIENCY SYMPTOMS

Inadequate intake or absorption of vitamin B12 can lead to pernicious anemia, which is a deficiency in the red blood cells not related to iron deficiency. If too much folic acid is taken, the symptoms of pernicious anemia may be hidden until irreversible neurological damage has been done and symptoms such as tremors appear. Other symptoms associated with vitamin B12 deficiency include menstrual problems and listlessness.

PYRIDOXINE (B6)
Filed under: General
Posted by: @ 3:36 am

Dr.Abhay Kumar Pati, Author, Best Nutrition Inc USA
www.bestnutrition.com, www.nutritionbest.com, www.ayurvedicsupplements.com, www.biotechayur.com

DESCRIPTION
Pyridoxine was once known as the “woman’s vitamin” because of its beneficial effects in symptoms related to menses. Pyridoxine is a B-complex water-soluble vitamin requiring regular daily intake. Pyridoxine is essential to produce adrenaline (epinephrine) and insulin. Vitamin B6 is reasonably resistant to heat but can be lost from food sources left soaking in water over time. High protein diets increase the need for pyridoxine. Alcoholics typically have low levels of pyridoxine.

Pyridoxine is essential for energy production, necessary for proper functioning of the nervous system, and involved in protein metabolism.
DEFICIENCY SYMPTOMS
Inadequate intake of pyridoxine may cause symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS), lowered white blood cell count, swelling of the abdomen and extremities, and seborrhea (oily skin with crusts and scales) around the eyes, nose and mouth.

THERAPEUTIC USES

THOSE WHO MAY NEED TO SUPPLEMENT

RECOMMENDED DIETARY ALLOWANCE

Age Pyridoxine/Vitamin B6 (mg/day)

SAFETY
Pyridoxine is generally safe to take with no reported cases of toxicity. However, daily doses in excess of 100 mg should be taken under strict medical supervision.

INTERACTIONS & CONTRAINDICATIONS
Pyridoxine is one of the B-complex vitamins and so ideally should be taken as part of the complex, although single supplementation is acceptable as part of a nutritional therapeutic program.

PANTOTHENIC ACID (B5)
Filed under: General
Posted by: @ 10:58 pm

Dr.Abhay Kumar Pati, Author, Best Nutrition Inc USA
www.bestnutrition.com, www.nutritionbest.com, www.ayurvedicsupplements.com, www.biotechayur.com

DESCRIPTION
Pantothenic acid, vitamin B5, is known as B3 in parts of Europe. Its name comes from the Greek panthos, which means “everywhere.” It was first isolated from rice husks in 1939. Pantothenic acid is widely found everywhere - in our body tissues and in plants. Pantothenic acid is a B-complex water-soluble vitamin, so a regular daily intake is required.
Pantothenic acid is very important to the process of releasing energy from foods. This is because it is part of coenzyme A, which plays a major role in energy release. Pantothenic acid is used to make and renew body tissues. It is necessary for the production of antibodies and therefore proper immune function.
DEFICIENCY SYMPTOMS
These include fatigue, depression, insomnia, loss of appetite, indigestion, and cramps.

THERAPEUTIC USES

THOSE WHO MAY NEED TO SUPPLEMENT

REQUIRED NUTRITIONAL INTAKE
There are no specific recommendations regarding the intake of pantothenic acid. An average of 3-7 mg daily is thought to be sufficient for most adults.

BEST FOOD SOURCES

 Food  Pantothenic Acid (mg/100g)
 brewer’s yeast  9.5
 pig’s liver  6.5
 yeast extract  3.8
 nuts  2.7
 wheat bran  2.4
 wheat germ  2.2
 eggs  1.8
poultry  1.2

 
SAFETY
To date, no toxic effects have been recorded with the use of pantothenic acid. It is linked with riboflavin in its function in the production of energy.
 
INTERACTIONS & CONTRAINDICATIONS
Pantothenic acid is one of the B-complex vitamins and so ideally should be taken as part of the complex, although single supplementation is acceptable as part of a nutritional therapeutic program.

NIACIN (B3)
Filed under: General
Posted by: @ 4:30 am

Dr.Abhay Kumar Pati, Author, Best Nutrition Inc USA
www.bestnutrition.com, www.nutritionbest.com, www.ayurvedicsupplements.com, www.biotechayur.com

DESCRIPTION

Niacin comes in two forms, an acid (nicotinic acid) and an amide (nicotinamide), neither of which has anything in common with nicotine. Niacin was also referred to as “PP” because it prevented pellagra, a niacin-deficiency disease whose symptoms include diarrhea, dermatitis and dementia. In common with other B vitamins, niacin is water-soluble. In addition to preformed niacin occurring in foods, niacin may also be made in the body from the amino acid tryptophan. Sixty molecules of tryptophan are required to make one molecule of niacin.

The acid form, nicotinic acid, plays an important role in the nervous system and circulation. The amide form, nicotinamide, processes carbohydrates, fats and proteins in the production of energy.
DEFICIENCY SYMPTOMS

These include diarrhea, dermatitis and dementia as seen in pellagra, as well as nervousness.
THERAPEUTIC USES

BEST FOOD SOURCES

Food (mg/100g) Niacin Tryptophan Niacin equivalent*
coffee, instant 24.8 186 27.9
chicken 5.9 221 9.6
beef 4.2 258 8.5
pork chop 4.2 180 7.2
cheese, cheddar 0.1 367 6.2
fish, white 2.9 189 6.0
mung beans, dry 2.0 210 5.5
eggs 0.1 217 3.7
peas, frozen 1.6 58 2.6
bread, whole-meal 4.1** 108 1.8
potatoes 0.6 52 1.5

* The niacin equivalent is the niacin plus the tryptophan contribution in each food source.
** The niacin in whole-meal bread is unavailable to the body; the niacin equivalent figure comes from the tryptophan contribution.

SAFETY
Nicotinic acid can cause facial flushing if taken in large doses. The Health Food Manufacturers’ Association therefore recommends the maximum dosage should be 100 mg in an immediate release form and that timed-release nicotinic acid should not be available.  Nicotinamide is considered safe up to 2,000 mg/day.
INTERACTIONS & CONTRAINDICATIONS
Niacin works with the other B-complex vitamins, but may be taken separately as part of a nutritional therapeutic program. If taken individually, it should be combined with thiamin and pyridoxine to ensure nervous stability and the conversion of L-tryptophan to nicotinic acid. People suffering from diabetes, gout, stomach ulcers and liver problems should not take nicotinic acid.

RIBOFLAVIN (B2)
Filed under: General
Posted by: @ 4:34 am

Dr.Abhay Kumar Pati, Author, Best Nutrition Inc USA
www.bestnutrition.com, www.nutritionbest.com, www.ayurvedicsupplements.com, www.biotechayur.com

DESCRIPTION
Riboflavin is yellow in color and thus has been used as a food-coloring agent. As with all B-complex vitamins, it is water-soluble and requires a regular daily intake. Since it is sensitive to light it must be shielded from light exposure. For instance, milk in glass or clear plastic bottles loses most of its vitamin B2 content if exposed to too much light.

Riboflavin forms two essential coenzymes, flavin dinucleotide and flavin mononucleotide, which together are responsible for converting proteins, fats and sugars into substances that the body can use. Riboflavin is important for healthy skin and hair.

DEFICIENCY SYMPTOMS
Inadequate daily intake of riboflavin may contribute to sores, dermatitis, hair loss, and burning, itching, light-sensitive eyes.

THERAPEUTIC USES

THIAMIN (B1)
Filed under: General
Posted by: @ 1:59 am

Dr.Abhay Kumar Pati, Author, Best Nutrition Inc USA
www.bestnutrition.com, www.nutritionbest.com, www.ayurvedicsupplements.com, www.biotechayur.com

DESCRIPTION
Thiamin is known as “the morale vitamin” because of the beneficial effects it has on the nervous system and morale. People with heart disease have been found to have lower than normal levels of thiamin in their heart muscle.  Beriberi is a condition, which includes symptoms of general weakness and decreased appetite and was found to be preventable if whole brown rice was eaten instead of refined white rice. In 1926 two doctors isolated the active ingredient missing from the refined grain, which was named thiamin.

Thiamin is a very delicate and easily destroyed vitamin. After vitamin C, it is the least stable of all vitamins. For example, alcohol destroys thiamin. Also, people with a low level of thiamin seem to be troubled more by insects.

Thiamin ensures mental alertness. It is vital for the release of energy from carbohydrates, fats and alcohol, and generally aids digestion. During pregnancy, thiamin ensures the correct growth of the fetus.

DEFICIENCY SYMPTOMS
Severe deficiency is now extremely rare in the Western world, but very low intake leads to beriberi, the symptoms of which include muscle weakness, nausea, loss of appetite and water retention. Minor deficiency of thiamin will lead to mental and emotional problems, such as loss of concentration, memory loss, depression, and irritability. Weight loss and digestive upset may also occur. Probably, the earliest symptom of deficiency is continuous nausea.

VITAMIN A DESCRIPTION

Vitamin A occurs in two forms: preformed vitamin A, known as retinol, and provitamin A, also known as beta carotene. Vitamin A is also known as “the vision vitamin” for its role in aiding eyesight. Because it is fat-soluble and stored in the liver, it need not be replenished every day.

Vitamin A helps maintain healthy skin, teeth and bones, as well as mucous membranes, such as those in the nose, throat and lungs. It is necessary in the formation of an eye pigment involved in night vision, and is therefore essential for vision in dim light. Vitamin A is needed for proper development of the fetus in the womb.

DEFICIENCY SYMPTOMS

Severe deficiency leads to various physical changes in the eye and will eventually lead to blindness. Marginal deficiency will lead to increased susceptibility to respiratory tract infections and skin problems.

THERAPEUTIC USES

THOSE  WHO MAY NEED TO SUPPLEMENT

RECOMMENDED DIETARY ALLOWANCE

Age Retinol/Vitamin A (mcg/day)
0-12 months 375
 1-3 years  400
 4-6 years  500
 7-10 years  500
 11+ years (male)  1000
 11+ years (female)  800
 Pregnancy  800
 Lactation, 0-6 months  1300
 Lactation, 6-12 months  1200

 

BEST FOOD SOURCES

Food Retinol (mcg/100g)
halibut liver oil 900,000
lamb’s liver 19,900
cod liver oil 18,000
butter 985
margarine 800
cheese, cheddar 363
eggs 190
pig’s kidney 160
milk 56
mackerel 45
beef 10
sardines, canned 7

 

SAFETY

Taken in excess, vitamin A can lead to toxicity because it is stored in the liver. However, it still has a high safety margin in that regular daily intake generally has to exceed 7,500 mcg in women and 9,000 mcg in men before toxic effects are experienced. Vitamin A toxicity is usually fully reversible.  The vitamin A intake of pregnant women should not exceed 3,300 mcg per day (from food and supplements combined) unless directed by a health care professional.

 

INTERACTIONS & CONTRAINDICATIONS

Vitamins A and D (both fat-soluble vitamins) are found together in many food sources, although they are not actually dependent upon one another for their absorption or utilization. A zinc deficiency can affect the function of vitamin A and vice versa. Vitamin A should not be taken with vitamin-A-derived acne medications. The need for vitamin A is decreased if the individual is using the contraceptive pill.
