Why supplements are more than just “nutritional”

We are all aware of the different vitamins and minerals that facilitate bodily functions and boosts the immune system. However, the right supplement can make all the difference, not just to help you survive, but to help you thrive.

The MNI range consists of many supplements, that can offer something for everyone in the family:

MNI NeuroVance Caps, 30's

NeuroVance optimises brain function and combats stress by supporting healthy brain function. It does not act as a sedative or stimulant. The plant-based, natural ingredients include roseroot extract, inositol, magnesium and zinc.

Roseroot is known to combat fatigue and stress and was used as a “brain tonic” during the early 19th century. Inositol is a natural isomer of glucose, found in many fruits, vegetables and nuts. Studies conducted with the addition of inositol have shown positive results in those with anxiety, depression and other stress related disorders. Magnesium and zinc are both part of numerous bodily functions, keeping cells within the body healthy.

MNI AntaGolin Tabs, 60's

AntaGolin optimises blood sugar metabolism and combats insulin resistance with its blend of natural ingredients. These ingredients are barberry root extract, Banaba leaf extract and inositol.

Barberry root has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries, with conditions include obesity and diabetes. Studies pertaining to the therapeutic effects of the barberry root also included women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), who struggle with insulin resistance. Since 2012, many large-scale studies have found barberry root improves glucose homeostasis.

Banaba leaf extract is harvested from the deciduous flowering tree commonly found in Asia. The extract is commonly used to treat obesity, diabetes and inflammation in Eastern traditional medicine.

As previously mentioned, inositol is a natural isomer of glucose. This means that it signals the body to tell it when there is glucose present, and that it should release insulin to stabilise your blood sugar levels.

MNI SkinVance + Zinc Kit, 30 Day

SkinVance + Zinc is formulated to aid in improving skin health by combatting the effects of insulin resistance, PCOS, hormonal change and imbalance on the skin. These include hormonal acne, skin hyperpigmentation and excess hair. It contains inositol, choline, vitamins A, B6, B12, and D, iodine, magnesium, selenium and zinc.

As Inositol helps to improve insulin sensitivity, it also helps to balance hormones. This can greatly reduce acne. Folate and B vitamins help regulate homocysteine levels, as high levels of this are common to acne patients. Choline ensures that the lipid, or fatty portions of cell membranes are intact and working correctly.

Vitamin A receptors are found in the oil glands of your skin. Retinoids, a form of vitamin A, are often used to treat acne by decreasing oil production. Vitamin D helps to minimise inflammation in the skin and regulates the growth of new cells. Iodine optimises thyroid health. Unhealthy thyroids are associated with dry, flaky and inflamed skin,

Magnesium plays a role in treating and preventing acne, improving collagen and reducing skin dryness. It may also help correcting insulin associated hormone imbalance, which often causes hormonal acne. Selenium can improve acne and protects the skin from UV damage. Zinc is essential in keeping your skin healthy and reducing inflammation.

MNI RheumaLin Tabs, 40's

MNI RheumaLin is formulated to alleviate back, neck and joint pain by targeting multiple biological pathways involved in inflammation. It contains Indian frankincense and resveratrol.

Indian frankincense has been used for centuries in traditional Asian medicine to relieve pain and inflammation in the tissue and joints.

Resveratrol is found in small amounts in certain nuts, grapes and wine, and is commonly used to treat inflammation and arthritis.

MNI OviVance Tabs, 60's

Ovivance is formulated to promote reproductive and foetal health. The combination of ingredients can assist in combatting insulin resistance related to common reproductive disorders, such as PCOS, gestational diabetes and the Metabolic Syndrome. It contains inositol, folate, choline, vitamins A, B6, B12 and D, iodine, magnesium, selenium and zinc.

Clinical studies have shown the improvement of egg quality and quantity and menstrual cycle regularity once inositol helps to regulate insulin. Folate is essential to reproductive and foetal development and reproductive health. Choline will assist in healthy cell division and placental vascular development.

Vitamin A is essential for healthy neonatal development of organs and immune system. Vitamin B6 is known to reduce morning sickness and postpartum depression. Vitamin B12 is essential for neurological development. Vitamin D may improve ability to conceive and reduces the risk for preeclampsia.

Iodine is essential to thyroid health. Unhealthy thyroids may lead to spontaneous miscarriage or congenital defects.

Magnesium can improve overall health and prevent growth restriction. Selenium may improve cognitive development. Zinc is essential to optimal health during pregnancy, as well as addressing PCOS, especially through reducing inflammation and oxidative stress.
