How Does Basic Maintenance® Work?
Basic Maintenance® contains a variety of antioxidants, which help to neutralize and repair damage from oxidative stress. Nutrient antioxidant deficiency is a known cause of numerous chronic and degenerative pathologies . Vitamins C and E work synergistically against free radicals. Alpha-tocopherol, the most bioactive form of vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin and potent antioxidant. Due to its fat-solubility, α-tocopherol protects cell membranes from oxidative damage and lipid peroxidation . Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin and is essential for collagen, carnitine, and neurotransmitter biosynthesis. Beta-carotene (vitamin A) is also a fat-soluble antioxidant. It is also known as a carotenoid and is converted to retinol, an essential nutrient for vision .
Vitamin D-3, cholecalciferol, is the form of vitamin D that our bodies make naturally in response to sunlight and is necessary for the maintenance of bone health and calcium homeostasis . Unfortunately, vitamin D deficiency is a common problem as research on skin health has discouraged many people from exposing their skin to the sun. Vitamin D deficiency is linked with osteoporotic bone loss, increased bone fractures, autoimmune disease, and neurodegenerative disorders .
Vitamin K aids in the maintenance of healthy bones by regulating calcium uptake in bone tissue, increasing new bone formation, and reducing bone resorption . Zinc, copper, manganese, and boron also support bone mineralization .
Selenium (Se) is a trace mineral that forms the active site of several antioxidant enzymes and is a known immunomodulator, along with vitamins A and D. Selenium is also necessary for proper thyroid function . Iodine is also an essential mineral, particularly related to thyroid health, as it is a necessary element in the synthesis of thyroid hormone .
B vitamins contained in this supplement blend; thiamine, riboflavin, niacinamide, B-6, biotin, pantothenic acid, folate, and B-12, are commonly associated with energy production, nervous system maintenance, and cardiovascular health. Thiamine, riboflavin, niacinamide, B-6, biotin, and pantothenic acid are cofactors for enzymes needed for cellular energy production through the metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. Thiamine, folate, B-12 are involved in the development of neurons and neurotransmitter synthesis . Methylfolate and B-6 are required for homocysteine metabolism and have been linked to mood improvement .
