ADDITIVA MINERALS

ADDITIVA Magnesium

Leg cramps, lack of energy or poor concentration? Magnesium deficiency could be the cause. Adults should take 300 to 400 mg of magnesium daily, and athletes require more.

Supplements are useful if your diet doesn’t provide enough magnesium or in times of increased sporting activity or stress. That’s where our exceptionally high-quality ADDITIVA Magnesium products come in. They are exclusively available in pharmacies, with no need for a prescription. There is a product in the right dose and format to suit everyone’s specific needs.

All ADDITIVA Magnesium preparations contain magnesium salts of natural origin, in pure form. The use of magnesium carbonate and magnesium oxide has proven successful for a number of reasons: magnesium carbonates taste natural and pleasant; magnesium oxide, on the other hand, has a particularly high magnesium content. Both salts can be easily taken up by the body. All ADDITIVA magnesium products dissolve rapidly in water, taste perfectly natural and leave no residues in the glass.

The right format for everyone:

Granules for oral use without water: our handy orange flavour sticks (e.g. ADDITIVA Magnesium 300 mg sticks or ADDITIVA Magnesium 375 mg sticks) are ideal for quickly topping up the body’s magnesium stores. They can be taken quickly and simply as and when, even without water.

Granulated drink mix: our sachets of granulated drink mix (e.g. lemon flavour ADDITIVA Magnesium 300 mg granulated drink mix or orange flavour ADDITIVA Magnesium 375 mg granulated drink mix) are ideal for replacing both magnesium and fluid stores after sport.

Film-coated tablets: ADDITIVA Magnesium film-coated tablets, which contain 400 mg of magnesium per tablet, are a handy alternative to our granulated products.

Sports tip: Recreational and high-performance athletes don’t just take magnesium daily to keep their muscles and ligaments healthy but most of all to help them achieve peak performance. Fit without doping – to keep the competition fair, it’s important to check the Cologne List when taking magnesium preparations. ADDITIVA Magnesium granulated drink mix and granules for oral use without water are listed in the Cologne List, ensuring athletes can achieve maximum sporting performance fairly – with no risk of doping!

To guarantee that ADDITIVA Magnesium is safe for high-performance athletes, the granulated drink mix and the granules for oral use without water have been tested by the German Sport University and included in the well-known Cologne List. This service platform created by the Rhineland Olympic Centre contains details of all nutritional supplements that entail a minimal risk of doping.

Micronutrients are the fuel for metabolic processes in the human organism. We differentiate between vitamins and minerals and the latter in turn into bulk and trace elements. Bulk elements are found in the body in greater concentration and should be supplied daily in an appropriate amount. In contrast, trace elements are needed in extremely low concentrations.

The optimal nutrient supply is important for unrestricted performance. Of course, our life is not always the same, there are times that challenge us more than average. Be it a particularly stressful stage in the job, private hurdles or an ambitious sporting goal. Just like a car that uses more fuel uphill, we also need an extra portion of nutrients during challenging phases of life.

This additional requirement is covered by a balanced and varied diet, but now and then – especially in stressful phases – there is not enough time to pay sufficient attention to nutrition. In these situations it can be useful to resort to food supplements.

 

Magnesium
This mineral belongs to the so-called bulk elements. This means that the human body needs considerable amounts of this nutrient compared to a trace element on a daily basis. Magnesium supports muscle function, is important for a normal electrolyte balance, normal protein synthesis and for maintaining healthy teeth and bones.

 

B Vitamins
The vitamin B complex consists of eight B vitamins. They are involved in numerous metabolic processes and contribute to the general well-being through the following properties, among others

Thiamine (vitamin B1)
is important for a healthy nervous system and normal heart function.

Riboflavin (vitamin B2)
helps to maintain red blood cells and protects the cells from oxidative stress.

Niacin (vitamin B3)
plays a role in energy metabolism and within the framework of normal mental function.

Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5)
supports mental performance and contributes to normal vitamin D synthesis

Pyridoxine (vitamin B6)
regulates hormone activity and supports glycogen metabolism.

Biotin (vitamin B7)
is important for the normal metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins.

Folic acid (vitamin B9)
reduces fatigue and exhaustion and supports a normal amino acid synthesis

Cyanocobalamin (vitamin B12)
plays a role in the process of cell division and is important for homocysteine metabolism.

vitamin C
The water-soluble vitamin is also known as ascorbic acid. Vitamin C is important for the immune system, supports energy metabolism, protects the cells from oxidative stress and improves iron absorption.

Additiva Calcium + Vitamin D3 + Vitamin K2

Calcium is essential for the health of bones and teeth. However, current studies show that calcium alone is not enough. In order to support absorption of calcium into the bone substance, it is recommended to take vitamins D3 and K2 at the same time.

VITAMIN K2

This trio of essential nutrients contributes to bone health, as vitamin D3 increases the amount of calcium absorbed from the gut, and in addition both vitamins are essential for transporting calcium into the bones. This combination not only improves bone density but also prevents the bone mineral from circulating unused in the blood stream and clogging the arteries (atherosclerosis).

Bone strength: calcium with vitamin D3 und vitamin K2

Calcium can only reach the bones when it is bound to special transport proteins. These can only be generated with the help of vitamin D3, while vitamin K2 is essential for activating the proteins. The proteins need to be activated to transport calcium from the blood into the bones, where the mineral can be incorporated.

 

Preventing calcium deficiency

Bone loss can occur prematurely and often remains unnoticed, particularly in adults. Taking this combination of essential nutrients preventively can counteract the development of osteoporosis. High-risk groups with increased calcium requirements, such as women in the menopause, the elderly and osteoporosis sufferers benefit from taking Additiva Calcium + Vitamin D3 + Vitamin K2 daily as a gluten-free granulated drink mix with a refreshing lemon flavour. People who avoid milk and dairy products, which are important sources of calcium, should also keep an eye on their calcium intake.

ADDITIVA Osteogard 800 IU

As many as 82 per cent of men and 91 per cent of women don’t achieve their recommended daily intake of vitamin D, according to the National Consumption Study II by the German Federal Research Institute for Nutrition and Foodstuffs.

Children, adolescents and the elderly are particularly likely to be affected by a deficiency. This can lead to rickets in children, and in adults there is a dramatically increased risk of developing the dreaded osteoporosis later in life. Moreover, vitamin D deficiency has been associated with cardiovascular disorders and an increased susceptibility to infections.

 

For healthy bones, taking just one ADDITIVA Osteogard 800 IU vitamin D3 tablet daily can boost the supply of this vital “sun vitamin”. Added to a calcium-rich diet, bone growth is supported and the bone structure is kept healthy throughout life.

 

The dose conforms with the current recommendations for increasing daily vitamin D3 intake to 800 IU by the German Osteology Umbrella Association and the German Nutrition Society (DGE).
