B-100 Complex Vitamins
B100 plays an essential role in balancing the immune system. It helps the body in so many ways from converting carbohydrates and fat into energy, allows oxygen to be used by the body, improves blood circulation, maintains proper brain function, and maintains the health of nerves, skin and red blood cells. This product contains a vast spectrum of the B Vitamins: B-1 (Thiamine Mononitrate), B-2 (Riboflavin), B-3, (niacin), B-6 (pyridoxine), B-9 (folate/folic acid) B-12 (from Cyanocobalamin), Biotin, B-5. Choline, Inositol and PABA (Para-aminobenzoic acid).
Vitamin C- 1000
Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid) is a very popular dietary supplement due to its antioxidant properties that help maintain healthy tissue and helps the body absorb iron. Your body needs to form blood vessels, cartilage, muscle and collagen in bones. It is also vital to your body’s healing process. It is often supplemented to reduce the symptoms of the common cold. Vitamin C also functions as a powerful antioxidant, protecting against damage induced by oxidative stress, which occurs with the accumulation of reactive molecules known as free radicals.
Vitamin D – aka, the Sunshine Vitamin
Getting adequate amounts of vitamin D and calcium can prevent or slow osteoporosis and reduce bone fractures. A growing body of research also suggests that maintaining healthy levels of vitamin D may reduce the risk of developing muscle pain and weakness, autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis, cardiovascular disease and certain cancers. In addition, vitamin D deficiency appears to be a growing problem in the United States. As a result, supplemental vitamin D is commonly recommended for many people. It also has been recommended to help your immunity in combination with other supplements to help your immune system.
Vitamin E-400- (Alpha-tocopheryl acetate)
Vitamin E is known for its antioxidant properties. Antioxidants help to protect your body from damaging compounds called free radicals. Normally, free radicals form when your body converts food into energy. The majority of vitamin E’s benefits come from avoiding a deficiency, but there are several instances where supplementation can offer additional benefits. Supplementing αtocopherol is able to improve T-cell mediated immune function, which may boost the immune system.
Melatonin is a neurohormone secreted by the pineal gland in the brain and is well known for causing and regulating sleep. The primary use of melatonin as a supplement is to normalize abnormal sleep patterns. Irregular sleep patterns are associated with a wide variety of health problems and premature aging. Melatonin is the hormone used by your body to help you fall asleep, and thus supplementation is seen as a way to get regular sleep. This is particularly useful for people who engage in shift work or are jet lagged. Melatonin’s primary mechanism is by helping decrease the time it takes to fall asleep. As a hormone, that's its primary job.

Zinc is needed for immune cell development and communication and plays an important role in inflammatory response. A deficiency in this nutrient significantly affects your immune system’s ability to function properly, resulting in an increased risk of infection and disease, including pneumonia. It may reduce the duration of cold symptoms, support blood sugar control, improve severe and inflammatory acne, decrease heart disease risk, and slow the progression of macular degeneration.
