*5 B vitamins that could help the immune system combat the COVID 19 Virus
HealthSMART coffee is the most potent, bio-available nutritional coffee…ever! Each brewed mug delivers between 4% and 22% of the DV (Daily Value) for 12 vitamins and minerals making it healthier than any other coffee. HealthSMART coffee also contains more antioxidants and Management expects it will eventually become known as the richest source of antioxidants in the diet.
The TechnoRoasting process also gives birth “to other compounds that are even better for your health” and HealthSMART coffee contains micro-nutrients and minerals. We know that HealthSMART coffee contains high concentrations of Chlorogenic Acid and Glycemic Acid and numerous other antioxidants. We haven’t even begun to test for all of the beneficial constituents of HealthSMART coffee.
HealthSMART coffee beans are uniquely fertilized and contain substantial trace nutrients which contribute to good health. Drinking HealthSMART coffee is one way we can start to regain the abundant vitamins and minerals once naturally found in our food supply. When the body is deficient in minerals, it extracts them from storage sites in the bones to replenish them in the blood and muscles and to maintain the proper intercellular fluid concentration. Therefore, the essential minerals contained in each brewed mug of HealthSMART coffee are vital for your health.
As a result of our TechnoRoasting process, HealthSMART coffee also contains soluble bioactive compounds such as: phenolics, chlorogenic acids, caffeine, lactones, niacin and the minerals potassium, iron, and zinc. In addition, there are hundreds of volatiles which stimulate the brain, cause pleasure, and heighten the sense of smell.
Most people have calcium deficient diets, less than 10% of women have adequate intake. Calcium is essential to maintaining total body health. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in bone. Sufficient Calcium reduces the risk of bone fracture and plays an established role in protecting and enhancing bone health and density. Calcium plays other important roles in the body. It helps regulate muscular contractions and plays a role in normal nerve functioning, blood-vessel expansion and contraction, and hormone and enzyme secretion. When dietary calcium intake falls short, calcium is pulled from its storage site in bone to meet the demands of the body and keep calcium in blood, muscle and intercellular fluids within a constant concentration. Good calcium nutrition throughout life is essential for achieving peak bone mass and preventing deficiency-related bone loss. Increased and it is imperative for slowing bone loss in adults. Inadequate calcium significantly contributes to the development of osteoporosis.
Studies have also suggested that ensuring an adequate amount of calcium and magnesium in the diet is important to protect against high blood pressure, as well as for general health. There is also evidence to support its role in weight management, muscle function and energy metabolism.
The deficiency of this nutrient is prominent, 72% of the adult Americans fall short of the DV for magnesium. Magnesium is responsible for over 300 process in the body. While best known for its role in muscle and nerve function, it also supports heart and bone health and is frequently paired with calcium. Researchers say a cup of coffee helps a higher number of people gain complete relief from “tension headaches”. A magnesium deficiency is associated with constricted blood vessels in the head.
Magnesium influences many bodily processes, including digestion, energy production, muscle function, bone formation, creation of new cells, the activation of B-vitamins causes the relaxation of muscles, as well as assisting in the functions of the heart, kidneys, adrenals, brain and nervous system. The lack of sufficient available magnesium in the body can interfere with any or all of these processes. Magnesium is vital to energy in the form of ATP which is present in all living tissue, and provides energy for processes such as muscle contraction, through the process of cellular respiration.
Calcium excites nerves while magnesium calms them down. Calcium makes muscles contract. Magnesium is necessary for muscles to relax. Calcium is needed for blood clotting but magnesium keeps the blood flowing freely. To ward off the negative effects of a prolonged period of stress or over-reaction to stress, calcium needs to be balanced with adequate amounts of magnesium. Going through a stressful period without sufficient magnesium can set up a deficit that, if not corrected, can linger, causing more stress and further health problems. Today we have diets dangerously low in magnesium. Magnesium is as important as calcium in the prevention of osteoporosis and is crucial to increasing bone mass. Insulin is the hormone that helps with the regulation of glucose (sugar) metabolism. Magnesium has been found to improve insulin’s response to dietary sugar and to improve the action of insulin in regulating blood sugar levels. Magnesium is an essential nutrient for all living things. Along with calcium and phosphorus, magnesium is considered a major element in human nutrition, as opposed to the trace elements such as Fe, Zn, Cr, Se, etc., and is one of the four electrolytes along with calcium (Ca), sodium (Na), and potassium (K). At the cellular level, magnesium joins with the other electrolyte ions in a cell-controlling dance. These ions are carefully and meticulously separated in living cells: calcium and sodium ions, for the most part, are kept outside cells while magnesium and potassium ions are kept mainly inside cells. While it was estimated years ago that magnesium was a required cofactor for over 300 enzyme systems, that number is now more reliably estimated at 700 – 800. Energy in the form of the Mg-ATP complex is necessary to maintain this ionic “packaging” as well as to alter it in a regulated way when warranted. Magnesium has been called “nature’s physiological calcium channel blocker”. When this “blocker” function is breached or when magnesium becomes depleted within the cell from its normal level, calcium rises inside the cell.
This altered state results in a change in the intracellular Mg:Ca ratio, which appears to have an impact on cell function. For example, a lower-than-normal Mg:Ca ratio:
● In blood vessel smooth muscle cells—causes vasoconstriction, arterial stiffness, and/or hypertension;
● In heart cells—causes enlargement (hypertrophy);
● In blood platelet cells—causes increased aggregation, stickiness and clotting;
● Makes fat and skeletal muscle cells less able to respond to insulin (insulin resistance);
● Causes pancreatic beta cells to produce more insulin (causing hyperinsulinemia);
● Increases nerve cell activity as well as the response of endocrine tissues.
In a life-threatening crisis, such reactions are warranted, necessary and can be life-saving as they allow for performance with unusual strength and speed. Indeed, all these cellular responses to a low Mg:Ca cellular ratio can be aspects of the stress response or “fight-or-flight” reaction. In healthy individuals, when the stress or crisis is over, magnesium increases inside cells to its normal level, its calcium blocker function is restored, calcium moves back outside cells reestablishing normal electrolyte “packaging”, and the stress response subsides. However, when these responses to a lower-than-normal Mg:Ca ratio are a result of a magnesium nutritional deficiency state, some predictable disease states can occur. Many symptoms which trace back to lack of metabolism are caused by either vitamin and mineral deficiency or imbalance. There are at least twenty-two different diseases and symptoms for which scientific proof exists of being caused by magnesium deficiency.
“If you cook and process foods in any way, you lose magnesium.”
The hidden cause of calcium deficiency is due to calcium not being assimilated by the body due to a lack of Magnesium. Without a proper balance of these two minerals, magnesium gets depleted, which will result in the negative effects associated with lack of magnesium and a buildup of unassimilated calcium. Calcium needs magnesium and the body needs both. It is vital to keep these minerals in balance. Too little magnesium to balance calcium can be both uncomfortable and unhealthy.
The mineral magnesium – suppressed COVID-19 progression, creating a small stir. Magnesium pulls together by helping function and the enzymatic cofactor in the hormone’s metabolism but as a bronchodilator and vasodilator. Minerals especially make a significant difference to human health in part by strengthening the immune system and assist with stress relief. Thankfully, more consumers are seeking healthier vitamin and mineral intake strategies as they take a deeper interest in supporting their health these days especially. There’s no doubt that COVID-19 has drawn attention to the importance of general health and wellness – and to consumers’ power to attain it through diet.
“The public is beginning to realize the immune system is directly determined by the body’s overall nutrient status, with minerals making up part of our overall nutrient status.”
“All the evidence indicates that poor mineral status leads to poor outcomes when it comes to viral infections.”
“The real winning minerals have been Zinc and Magnesium.”
“And regular intake is essential, because “the body has no specialized zinc storage system”.
So Zinc and Magnesium – when taken jointly work to each other’s advantage. The interplay between Zin and Magnesium illustrates the extent to which ”the correct mineral balance in our bodies is important”. HealthSMART's chelated minerals are naturally formed and in natures natural proportions. Chelated minerals are more bioavailable and increase absorption, where their complex structures better survive passage through the stomach and small intestine, where absorption into the bloodstream occurs.
Sub acute potassium insufficiency is much harder to discern and may be much more prevalent than we think. Thus, for the most part, we need to get potassium from our diets. With the exception of people with kidney disorders, it is difficult to get too much potassium from food sources. All fruits and vegetables have an abundance of potassium, and are great for people seeking to boost their levels. Deficiency can also be caused by excessive fluid loss from sweat, vomiting, diarrhea, diuretics or laxatives. Symptoms of potassium deficiency may be fatigue, muscle weakness, confusion and irritability—all of which are fairly nonspecific
Potassium is an important nutrient for health. It is the major positive ion inside cells and is thus important for maintaining fluid and electrolyte balance in the body. It is also important in neuron function.
Zinc has been gathering attention in recent years thanks to overall increased awareness in health and well-being. Today zinc has taken over the spotlight as a key ingredient in health-focused formulations as it supports normal function of the immune system. Immune system support has been a focus during the 2020 COVID-19 global pandemic.
The importance of zinc in our body is widely known thanks to its numerous health benefits, such as supporting protein and DNA synthesis, enzyme function, bone structure, nerve function and cognitive function. Zinc is an essential mineral, which is a component of approximately 300 enzymes and 2000 transcriptional factors. About 10% of the human proteome contain zinc-binding motives.
Zinc bioavailability is key to prevent deficiencies, especially for plant-based eaters and those who may have trouble utilizing and absorbing zinc. Intestinal absorption of zinc and its adequate utilization by the body, in other words bioavailability, dietary factors and physiological conditions.
Organic sources of zinc, typically have higher bioavailability compared to their low soluble inorganic counterparts, such as zinc oxide.
Awareness of zinc continues to increase due to its various benefits to human health. Many of them have drawbacks (not on those obtained from HealthSMART Coffees) regarding taste and bioavailability.
B-vitamins and zinc improve the immune system which helps to reduce or prevent the symptoms of illnesses like COVID-19 and the flu.
Note: Some coffees, primarily bottled, contain vitamins and minerals which are added to already roasted coffee beans, making the end product a Nutraceutical or Fortified beverage. According to the FDA researchers, these additives don’t appear to perform as well as the natural vitamins and minerals occurring in the unroasted coffee beans. In addition, no one knows the strength of added vitamins and minerals after they’ve sat around in a warehouse or on stores shelves for any length of time.
