Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) it is a vitamin soluble in body fluids, can be taken from foods (fruits and vegetables), or as drug derived synthetically. The largest of its resources can be found in broccoli, Brussels sprout, kale, black currant fruit and hawthorn, citrus fruits, tomatoes, Savoy cabbage, potatoes. In fact, intake of vitamin C of the food products does not limit the absorbed quantity. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a potent antioxidant, it is an antitoxic, increasing the immune system due to the elimination of risk of bacterial contamination. Vitamin C prevents rupture of blood vessels, affects the blood cholesterol level. It substantially increases the absorption of iron. Inhibits the growth of cancer cells. Lowers stress levels.
Vitamin C deficiency causes abnormal development of connective tissue, cracking capillaries, abnormal calcification of bone tissue, impaired absorption of iron, scorbutus. With the lack of vitamin C, all kinds of injuries do not heal up properly. Vitamin C deficiency can be caused by smoking; each cigarette is destroying up to 100 mg of vitamin C.
Dosage: The demand is 60-80 mg daily. It does not limit the ability to consume higher doses. Some side effects may occur only with longer taking of synthetic vitamin C.
Folic acid - also known as vitamin B9, is a synthetic form of naturally occurring folates. It needs to be transformed to folates in order to be biologically active also in the human organism. Therefore, its supplementation is recommended to people who do not have problems with methylation processes.
The majority of people associate folic acid with the period of pregnancy. It is definitely a justified association. Proper supply of vitamin B9 conditions correct development of the fetus and prevents disorders of neural tube defects in a baby.
Supplementation with folic acid also demonstrates positive influence on the functions of the nervous system of adults. Some sources say that it is conducive to maintaining beneficial emotional states. Moreover, folic acid takes part in the process of erythropoiesis, thanks to which it enables efficient production of red cells.
Supplementation with folic acid should be also considered by men who deal with low sperm quality. It was proven that complementing the level of vitamin B9 is conducive to increasing reproductive abilities of men.

The pomegranate is a fruit of Punica Granatum, a shrub or low tree of the Mediterranean region, which is the source of numerous active substances (such as anthocyanins, beta-sitosterols, ascorbic acid [vitamin C], ursolic acid, triterpenes etc.). It is a potent antioxidant that also supports the immune system, and detoxifying of the body through the bloodstream (applied in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases), it is used to treat arthritic conditions. Also used in the cosmetic industry because of its beneficial impact on the appearance of the skin. In the sports supplementation it is a component of antioxidant, detoxification, nutritional and vitamin and mineral supplementa and as refreshing beverages.
Punica granatum – pomegranate. Its a berry-plant originating from the West Asia, nowadays harvested in many parts of the world. Supplementation uses mainly its fruits, which contain many health-promoting polyphenols.
Pomegranate is a source for punicalagins, a powerful antioxidant. The ability to reduce free radicals amounts result both from the autonomous action of the compound and the activity of its metabolites. Moreover, the studies demonstrate correlation between punicalagins consumption and reduced risk of prostate cancer. Pomegranate fruits contain also punicic acid which can be effective in regulation of lipid profile.
There are existing indications that supplementation with pomegranate fruits and flowers can improve the effectiveness of action, which enhances protection of the cardiovascular system.
Agmatine is created in the release of carbon dioxide acids (decarboxylation) in the brain, small intestine, adrenal gland, kidney and liver, and is a metabolite of arginine endogenous enzyme (synthesized by human and animal organisms). The effect on the human body is not fully explored. According to the studies conducted so far show the features of andrenergic imidazole receptors. The proper availability in the body increases the activity and may affect the lipolysis process and the synthesis of nitric oxide. Not occurring in the natural, but in the combination with other oxides of nitrogen (arginine and citrulline), it has become one of the basic components of keratin stacks, NO boosters and pre-workout products, widely used in sports supplementation.
Fat is an essential nutrient plant and animal organisms. Because of the nutritional value and composition of fats are divided into: saturated (mono-saturated and multi-saturated fatty acids) and unsaturated fatty acids (including essential fatty acids - EFA). The group of lipids include lipids (triacylglycerols, waxes), complex fats (glycolipids, phospholipids), sterols and isoprenoids. Saturated fatty acids is a group of fatty acids having different carbon chain lengths, in which except for the carboxyl group, each of the carbon atoms is bound by a single bond. May adversely affect the lipid profile, so they can be used in limited quantities. Fats are a concentrated source of energy, with different flavours, facilitating the consumption and swallowing of food. They have building functions (part of cell membranes and co-create the white matter of the brain). EFAs are precursors of tissue hormones and biologically active compounds. The unsaturated fatty acids include fatty acids from the group Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9 (the last digit indicates, on which, counting of the end of the chain, there is a double bond in the appropriate carbon chain. The essential fatty acids include: acids, medium-Omega-3 [n-3 ] included in EFAs [essential fatty acids], and long chain (eicosapentaenoic acid [EPA] and docosahexaenoic acid [DHA]) Omega-6 and Omega-9. the number indicates that the last double bond in the carbon chain is on the third from the end carbon atom. The acids from the omega 3 group are essential components of cell membranes, they are precursors of eicosanoids and biological activators. They must be combined with ingestion in suitable proportions of Omega-6 acids.
Dosage: Depending on demand and applied diet. It is generally accepted that fats should constitute 20-30% of the energy (calorie) of meals daily.
Selaginella Tamariscina is a small plant from the Selaginellaceae family, naturally growing in the tropical and temperate climate, grown in many countries around the world. The shoots and leaves of the plant are a valuable healing raw material, used very often in traditional Chinese medicine. Scientists have distinguished a number of bioactive components from them, out of which the most valuable seems to be – rarely found in nature – amentoflavone.
In supplementation, extracts from Selaginella Tamariscina are most commonly standardized to a minimum of 20% of amentoflavone. It has been proven that the compound promotes increased strength and endurance, promotes fat burning and improves insulin sensitivity. It acts as an inhibitor of phosphodiesterase, causing increased levels of cAMP. In addition, it limits the activity of protein tyrosine phosphatase 1B, which determines insulin signaling. It can also inhibit the activity of acetylcholinesterase, which results in an increase in acetylcholine concentration and improves memory and concentration.
Extracts from Selaginella Tamariscina are often used in sports supplementation. They are usually included in fat burners and pre-workout preparations. They are available in the form of mono-preparations or in combination with other substances.
Dosage: no standards for unit consumption. Dosage depends on the standardization of the extract.
