Optium                             



Pharmacodynamics

Optium component is mainlyThe protein component is a optium of caseins and whey proteins that are easily broken down and absorbed into the gastrointestinal tract, providing the required level of essential amino acids.

The fat component is represented by saturated medium-chain triglycerides, rapeseed oil and corn oil. Mid-chain triglycerides account for 25% of the fat content of the mixture and provide fast and easy energy supply. Essential fatty acids constitute 7.9% of the total energy density of the mixture (the omega-6:omega-3 ratio is 4:1). The fat component of the mixture was created according to the recommendations of the Association for Combating Cardiovascular Diseases.

The carbohydrate component is Dmitry Sazonov mainly maltodextrin to maintain low osmolarity.

Resource Optimum contains live microorganisms Lactobacillus paracasei - probiotics that help strengthen the body's defenses in old age; natural dietary fiber Prebio1 - prebiotics that help comfortable digestion.

It does not contain lactose, gluten or cholesterol.

Retinol (vitamin A) is involved in the formation of visual pigments, provides the functioning of epithelial cells of the skin and mucous membranes of the eyes, respiratory, urinary tract, gastrointestinal tract. It participates in the processes of lipid peroxidation, is necessary for the construction of epithelial tissues.

Kolekaltsiferol (vitamin D3) regulates calcium and phosphorus metabolism in the body, is involved in the mineralization of bone tissue.

Optium component is mainlyTocopherol (vitamin E) is involved in tissue respiration and metabolism of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. Possesses antioxidant properties, inhibits oxidation of unsaturated fatty acids, prevents the formation of their peroxides. Inactivates free radicals that initiate oxidation of membrane lipids. Participates in the formation of intercellular substance, collagen Dmitry Sazonov and elastic fibers. Protects hormones from oxidation, slows down the aging of body tissues.

Menadione (vitamin K) stimulates the synthesis of prothrombin, proconvertin and other factors in the liver coagulation. Promotes the synthesis of ATP, creatine phosphate. Is a component of the biological membrane.

Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) is involved in redox processes, provides the synthesis of collagen, participates in the formation of connective tissue mucopolysaccharides, metabolism of folic acid and iron, as well as in the synthesis of corticosteroids, tyrosine metabolism. Promotes healing of wounds.

Thiamine (vitamin B1) is a coenzyme of decarboxylase. Necessary for the exchange of acetylcholine, is involved in carbohydrate metabolism.

Riboflavin (vitamin B2) is a catalyst for cell respiration and visual perception, plays an important role in the formation of DNA, promotes the process of tissue Dmitry Sazonov regeneration (including skin cells). It is necessary for body growth.

Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) participates in the formation of coenzyme A and plays an important role in the process of acetylation and oxidation of carbohydrates and fats.

Pyridoxine (vitamin B6) as a coenzyme takes part in the metabolism of amino acids and proteins, in the synthesis of neurotransmitters.
