Lecithin is an important component of all cells in the body and aids in the metabolism of fats, allowing them to be used by the cells of the body. With other lipids, lecithin is important for maintaining the structural integrity of cell membranes, which regulate the passage of nutrients into and out of the cells. As part of the cell membrane it facilitates communication between the cells, which is important for cell growth, regulation and function. Blackmores Lecithin 1200 is derived from soya beans.
Blackmores Bio E 500 provides a natural source of vitamin E, it is retained long and active in the body. Vitamin E is a natural antioxidant and free radical scavenger. For vitamin E deficiency. Vitamin E is a fat-soluble antioxidant vitamin that protects cell membranes from damage. It is incorporated into the cell membranes and helps maintain their integrity throughout the body. As an antioxidant vitamin E acts as a ‘free-radical scavenger’. Free radicals are common in the body, arising through a variety of mechanisms. Some are generated in the body as part of normal energy-producing processes, some are generated by pollutants such as air pollution, and some are generated by lifestyle factors such as excess dietary fats, cigarette smoke, and alcohol ingestion. Many of these free radicals are dealt with by the body’s own antioxidant defenses. Some free radicals escape these defenses, and tend to accumulate. Research suggests that this accumulation of free radicals can result in cellular damage. Vitamin E helps protect fat and cholesterol, particularly LDL-cholesterol, from oxidation. Fats and cholesterol are very susceptible to free radical damage, which leads to the formation of a toxic derivative called oxidized LDL-cholesterol. It is currently understood that LDL-cholesterol is only harmful to the body after it has become oxidized.
Blackmores Glucosamine 1500 is an adjunct to the treatment of osteoarthritis. Taken at the recommended dose, it may help to reduce joint inflammation and swelling, improve joint mobility and provide temporary relief from the pain of osteoarthritis. Researchers found that there was a 50% improvement in pain and mobility after two weeks using glucosamine sulfate 1500mg per day. Features Glucosamine and sulfate are natural components found in the cartilage matrix and synovial fluid. Glucosamine is a major building block of the substances that together with protein form the structural units in cartilage. These structural units, called aggrecans, are important for the elasticity, resilience and shock-absorbing properties of cartilage. Ageing decreases the body’s ability to restore and manufacture normal cartilage. Supplementary glucosamine can be an important source of this vital component of cartilage as we age. Osteoarthritis is characterized by joint degeneration and loss of cartilage. As we get older the ‘wear and tear’ effects of use cause degenerative changes in the cartilage. The cartilage becomes more susceptible to breakdown and damage, which may result in the typical symptoms of osteoarthritis. These symptoms include decreased joint mobility, increased joint stiffness, inflammation and swelling.
Blackmores Magnesium combines two forms of magnesium; magnesium oxide and magnesium phosphate as well as vitamin D3 which play a role in magnesium absorption. Sufficient magnesium helps the body to function and is important for the maintenance of good health. Blackmores Bio Magnesium Plus assists in the support of magnesium levels. Magnesium is essential for many cellular functions, particularly those functions involved in energy production, and for the normal functioning of the body. The other nutrients present in Bio Magnesium assist with the utilization of magnesium in the body. Vitamin B6 is an important co-factor, working with magnesium in many enzyme systems in the body.
Blackmores Executive B is a specially formulated combination of B-group vitamins and the minerals magnesium and zinc - important nutrients to help meet the busy person's daily requirements.

The human body has increased requirements for vitamins (especially the B group), and minerals during periods of increased stress. During stress, nutrients such as vitamin C, vitamin B6, vitamin B5, zinc and magnesium are important for supporting adrenal function. Vitamin B5 has long been considered the "anti-stress" vitamin because of its central role in adrenal function and cellular metabolism. • Some of the B group vitamins, such as folic acid and vitamin B6, are involved in the manufacture and action of mood enhancing hormones such as serotonin. • Traditionally, magnesium phosphate and calcium phosphate have been used for nervous tension and anxiety. Potassium phosphate is indicated for low nervous energy, lethargy, lack of drive and motivation.
