Ready for your monthly refresh? Each month, Restore offers a Drip of the Month tailored to the month’s specific challenges. Whether the focus is immunity, energy, detox, or skin health, each season brings a different set of factors that influence the ingredients in our drips.
Our Greet the Season Drip is here to keep your immunity top of mind as we head into the holidays with two key ingredients:
Why Do I Need Trace Elements?
Trace elements (or trace metals) are minerals present in living tissues in small amounts. Trace elements function primarily as catalysts in enzyme systems; some metallic ions, such as iron and copper, participate in oxidation-reduction reactions in energy metabolism. Iron, as a constituent of hemoglobin and myoglobin, also plays a vital role in the transport of oxygen. Because the human body cannot naturally synthesize these elements, it is essential that people consume them through their diet or by using supplements.
“When people think of trace elements, they think of nails, hair and skin, but trace elements go way beyond that. Trace elements help make enzymes, and there are thousands of different types of enzymes that our body needs,” says Dr. Eric Berg. “You also need trace elements to make vitamins. Let’s take B-12 for example. B12 needs Cobalt. And without Cobalt, you can’t make B12, and you could become anemic.”
Why Do I Need B Complex?
B Complex is composed of eight B vitamins: B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9 and B12. As the building blocks of a healthy body, B vitamins have a direct impact on your energy levels, brain function, and cell metabolism. Vitamin B complex may help prevent infections and help support or promote:
- Cell health
- Growth of red blood cells
- Energy levels
- Brain function
- Proper nerve function
- Hormones and cholesterol production
- Cardiovascular health
- Muscle tone
Some top sources of B vitamins include meat (especially liver), seafood, poultry, eggs, dairy products, legumes, leafy greens, seeds and fortified foods, such as breakfast cereal and nutritional yeast.
Because B Complex is primarily found in animal-based foods, vegan and vegetarians should pay special attention to their intake, because a B vitamin deficiency can lead to anemia, digestive issues, skin conditions and more.
