Solgar Vitamin and Herb is committed to the health and well-being of consumers worldwide through its offering of the highest quality food supplements, along with multivitamins, multinutrients, minerals, plants and specialized formulas.
Solgar was born in 1947 in the back room of a pharmacy in Lower East Manhattan.
Its origins go back to the shared investigations of two biochemists and a naturopathic doctor around the idea of preventing diseases through vitamins and minerals, as opposed to having to cure them with medicines.
These principles are the basis of the Solgar philosophy: achieving well-being through holistic health care.
Today, Solgar is internationally recognized for his contribution to research on the relationships between nature, nutrition, and health.
Solgar maintains the same passion and commitment with which its founders began the journey: to produce healthy food supplements of the highest quality, based on science and nature.
Among Solgar products we find:
Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. Our daily protein needs are really from amino acids.
Amino acids are classified into: essential and non-essential. The essentials: isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan and valine, cannot be manufactured by the body and must be provided in the diet. The non-essential ones, also essential for health, can be synthesized in the body by the essential amino acids.
Both types of amino acids, essential and non-essential, are involved in the formation of hormones, enzymes, neurotransmitters, antibodies and nutrient transporters.
Proteins are the most abundant substances in the body after water. They are vitally important for the growth, maintenance, and repair of all body tissues.
Proteins are made up of amino acids, of which the human body needs 22. When a food contains all eight essential amino acids, it is called a complete protein. Foods commonly considered complete proteins include meat, eggs, and dairy products.
They are present in the bones, muscles, blood, nerves, internal organs, hair, skin, nails, ligaments and tendons.
The entire family of carotenoids is found in many vegetables and fruits.
Specifically, beta-carotene is found in dark orange or green fruits and vegetables. The difference between a dark orange carrot and a pale one is due to its carotene content.
Alpha and beta-carotene are precursors of vitamin A and act as antioxidant nutrients. They are the only carotenoids that are converted into appreciable amounts of vitamin A. However, the body only converts these carotenoids to vitamin A as needed.
B vitamins encompass a large number of substances that affect the metabolism of all living cells by acting as coenzymes that work together with proteins in several of the enzyme systems of our body.
Vitamin C is known as ascorbic acid, and it is necessary to ingest it through the diet, since we cannot synthesize it. we can find it in many foods such as oranges, strawberries, spinach or asparagus, among others.
We can also find vitamin C together with other nutrients forming a team, as in the case of bioflavonoids, rose hips or acerola.
The immune system depends, among other vitamins, on vitamin C for its normal maintenance.
In the early stages of identifying vitamin E from vegetable oils, the proposed term tocopherols was used to denote the four initial compounds that shared a similar structure. These compounds were designated as alpha, beta, delta and gamma tocopherols. Its structures have two primary gears; a complex ring and a long saturated side chain.
Natural and synthetic vitamin E are not equivalent in composition, structure, or bioavailability. Natural vitamin E contains d-alpha-tocopherol, however, synthetic vitamin E contains mixed D and l-alpha-tocopherol. Bioavailability ad of natural vitamin E is almost twice as effective as synthetic.
Vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin. It contributes to normal blood coagulation and the maintenance of bones under normal conditions.
In foods of animal origin, vitamin K is found in liver, milk, yogurts, egg yolks, and fish liver oils. The best source for humans is that supplied by intestinal bacteria.
Minerals are essential factors in human nutrition; they are the constituents of bones, teeth, soft tissues, muscles, blood, and nerve cells. They act as catalysts for many reactions within the body and are important in the production of hormones.
If you have ever wondered why an apple turns brown after being cut or why iron rusts when exposed to the elements, you are wondering about the damaging and destructive effects of oxidants (free radicals) that are commonly we find in the environment.
The human body needs a wide variety of food substances, called: nutrients, which are the building materials for new or repaired tissues. Each nutrient has specific functions, although in many cases, several of them must work together to achieve balanced functioning.
They are synergistic blends of vitamins, chelated minerals, free-form amino acids, phytonutrients, antioxidants, and standardized herbs.
It has been estimated that about 400 species of bacteria live in our digestive system. Most of these bacteria are considered beneficial because they maintain a mutually beneficial relationship with the human body.
Dietary fiber is defined as all those food substances that our body cannot metabolize and use as energy. Fibers fall into two basic categories: water-soluble and water-insoluble, which are further divided into five subclasses: cellulose, hemicelluloses, lignins, pectins, and gums. In the diet, insoluble fiber is found in wheat bran, whole grains, fruit and vegetable skins, and nuts. Soluble fiber can be found in oats, pectin, guar gum, barley, beans, and sea vegetables.
Lecithin is used in food as an emulsifier for fats. It contains many phospholipids, including phosphatidyl-choline, phosphatidyl-inositol, phosphatidylserine, and others.
They are concentrated foods that add additional nutritional value to a person's diet when combined or taken with food.
The use of herbs in medicine dates back thousands of years.
