Nutrients Guide

Our products are optimized to your needs through extensive research and superior bioavailability.The bioavailability describes what percentage of a nutrient or active ingredient really arrives in the organism and can work there. It is important to us to inform you about the selected ingredients and effects, because we stand for more clarity in the unmanageable world of dietary supplements. We only use the best quality, natural components, produced sustainably and regionally. You can find a detailed overview of our ingredients, their origin and modes of action here:


Vitamin A (retinol)

Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin that is only found in animal foods and is only contained in plant foods as a precursor in the form of beta-carotene (provitamin). Beta-carotene is converted into vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A is made up of various compounds including retinol, retinal, and retinoic acid. The vitamin contributes to normal iron metabolism and to the maintenance of normal mucous membranes, skin and eyesight.

vitamin B1 (thiamine)

Vitamin B1 - also known as thiamine - is the precursor of thiamine pyrophosphate (TPP, TDP), which is considered an important coenzyme in the body. Virtually every organ and tissue contains vitamin B1. It contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system and supports the energy metabolism by metabolizing carbohydrates. Vitamin B1 is also important for the normal functioning of the heart.

Vitamin B2 (riboflavin)

Vitamin B2, also known as riboflavin, is one of eight B vitamins that performs various functions in the body. It contributes to the maintenance of normal skin and mucous membranes and supports energy metabolism by helping to convert food into energy. Riboflavin also plays a role in protecting cells from oxidative stress. Vitamin B2 is found in dairy products, eggs and meat and is found in low levels and with low bioavailability in vegan foods. In addition, the vitamin is sensitive to light and can become less effective if stored in the wrong conditions

Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid)

Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) is a component of coenzyme A and contributes to normal energy metabolism in the body. Pantothen means "everywhere" - this can be explained quite simply. Because as a component of an enzyme, vitamin B5 occurs in all living cells and is therefore involved in numerous reactions and the construction of necessary substances in the body. It contributes to normal mental performance and is also important for the synthesis and metabolism of steroid hormones, vitamin D and some neurotransmitters.

Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine)

Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) is the precursor of pyridoxal phosphate (P5P). This coenzyme is probably foreign to most, but it is one of the most essential coenzymes in the human body. It contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system and supports energy metabolism by helping to convert food into energy. Pyridoxine also plays a role in the normal formation of red blood cells and the regulation of hormone balance.
In addition, vitamin B6 contributes to normal protein and glycogen metabolism and also supports the normal function of the immune system and helps to reduce tiredness and fatigue.

vitamin B7 (biotin)

Biotin is one of the water-soluble B vitamins and is a popular substance for protecting skin and hair. It contributes to the normal maintenance of skin and hair.

Vitamin B9 (folic acid / active folate)

Active folate is a water-soluble vitamin and should not be confused with folic acid - because unlike bioactive folate, folic acid does not occur naturally. Folic acid is synthetically produced and must first be converted into active folate by the body in order to be effective. This does not always go smoothly, as the process requires a number of cofactors and enzymes. That's why we use active folate in our formulations to maintain the naturalness of our capsules and ensure optimal absorption of the vitamin. Active folate mainly consists of the so-called 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF). Folates are used in the body in cell division and growth processes.

Vitamin B12 (cobalmin)

Vitamin B12, also known as cobalamin, has to be absorbed by mucosal cells in the small intestine in order to get into the bloodstream. For this, the vitamin needs the so-called intrinsic factor, a special protein that is produced by the gastric mucosa.Vitamin B12 is primarily stored in the liver and contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism. In addition, vitamin B12 contributes to a normal immune system and reduces tiredness and fatigue. In addition, vitamin B12 is mainly found in animal foods. Vegans and vegetarians should therefore pay particular attention to the supply (a food supplement of vitamin B12 is strongly recommended by vegan organizations).

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid)

Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that must be obtained through diet or supplements. It is associated with many other health benefits such as: B reducing fatigue and improving iron absorption.

Vitamin D3 (Calciferol)

Vitamin D is also known as the "sunshine vitamin" because it is produced by the skin in response to sun exposure. It is a fat-soluble vitamin in a family of compounds that includes vitamins D-1, D-2, and D-3. Your body produces vitamin D naturally when exposed to direct sunlight. Since the body is dependent on sunshine for vitamin D production (main supply of 75-90%) and it can hardly be obtained from food, a deficiency can occur more quickly, especially in Central European winters. UV protection can also impair the absorption of vitamin D, so care should be taken to ensure adequate levels of the vitamin in the blood. Vitamin D is converted by the body into a hormone that controls a variety of bodily functions. Among other things, it contributes to the normal functioning of the immune system and to the normal absorption/utilization of calcium and phosphorus.

Vitamin E (tocopherol)

From a chemical perspective, vitamin E comprises an entire vitamin group, which consists of eight different units - half tocopherols and half tocotrienols. These can in turn be subdivided into alpha, beta, gamma and delta. Research has shown that alpha-tocopherol is the most powerful form and can therefore best meet human needs. Vitamin E helps protect cells from oxidative stress.



Millet extract

Millet is better known as a food that is used in the kitchen. Millet is one of the oldest staple foods and comes from Asia. At the end of antiquity, despite its distant origins, it spread throughout Europe and was even praised by the philosopher Pythagoras and Attila, king of the Huns.

Cat's Claw Extract

The cat's claw (Uncaria tomentosa) is a special type of liana that originally comes from South America. It sprawls from Peru's Amazon rainforest to Bolivia's and Brazil's diverse natural areas. Its roots go deep into the past. According to legend, the plant has been used for thousands of years by the Inca Indians as a remedy against infections and chronic inflammation. As early as 1994, the WHO officially recognized the cat's claw, whose sickle-shaped adhesive organs are reminiscent of cat claws, as a medicinal plant.

Beta-carotene (provitamin A)

Beta-carotene or provitamin A is a secondary plant substance that belongs to the group of carotenoids. Strictly speaking, carotenoids are pigments that occur naturally primarily in fruit and vegetables. They are characterized by their bright orange color, which is found in carrots or apricots, for example. Noteworthy concentrations of beta-carotene are also found in red and deep green fruits and vegetables (e.g.B spinach, peppers and tomatoes). They act as one of the most important sources of vitamin A.

Lemon balm extract

Balm extract, also known as lemon balm extract, is obtained from the leaves of lemon balm (Melissa officinalis). This herbal extract has been used in traditional medicine for centuries.

Pomegranates are known for their sweet and sour flavor and rich red color. Pomegranate extract is rich in various bioactive compounds such as polyphenols, especially ellagitannins, anthocyanins and flavonoids.




Zinc is an essential trace element for our body, with a significant impact on the health and function of various body structures. Without zinc, most metabolic processes could not function. Among other things, it contributes to normal cognitive function, normal fatty acid metabolism and normal protein synthesis.


Selenium is also a trace element. Selenium contributes to the maintenance of normal hair and nails. In addition, to a normal function of the immune system and normal thyroid function.


Copper is an important trace element that is involved in a variety of functions in the body. It is a component of numerous enzymes and plays an important role in many chemical reactions in the body. Especially with a long-term intake of zinc, it is advisable to ensure a sufficient copper intake. Copper contributes to the maintenance of normal connective tissue and normal hair and skin pigmentation.


Iron is a vital trace element that contributes to normal energy metabolism. Iron also contributes to the normal formation of red blood cells. Iron deficiency manifests itself, for example, in sluggishness, lack of motivation and exhaustion. Iron is found in both animal and plant foods, but the iron contained in plants (e.g.B Legumes) are less easily absorbed by the body because absorption is inhibited by the phytic acid in plants. That is why vegans and vegetarians are often affected by an insufficient supply of the trace element. Vitamin C and other bioactive substances ensure that iron absorption in the intestine is supported.


Iodine is a mineral and belongs to the group of trace elements. It is a component of thyroxine, a thyroid hormone, and contributes to normal thyroid function. But the mineral is not only responsible for this - iodine contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system and the energy metabolism.


Calcium contributes to normal energy metabolism and muscle function. Calcium is also required for the maintenance of normal bones. Incidentally, the body needs vitamin D to absorb calcium, so it is advisable to ensure that you consume sufficient amounts of both. Did you know that the body cannot produce calcium itself? Therefore, the mineral must be ingested through diet. Dairy products such as cheese, milk and yogurt, but also fish and various types of vegetables such as broccoli and cabbage are rich in calcium. Especially if you eat vegan or are lactose intolerant, it can make sense to supplement your diet with additional calcium.


Choline is a semi-essential micronutrient, more specifically a so-called primary monohydric alcohol. Choline is essential for human life. However, since it can be produced from folic acid and methionine itself, it is considered semi-essential. In contrast to the USA, choline is still relatively unknown in food supplements in Europe. Choline has various important functions and effects in the body. It contributes to normal fat metabolism and homocysteine ​​metabolism.




L-tryptophan is an essential amino acid, which means that it cannot be produced by the body itself, but must be supplied. It is a precursor to the neurotransmitter serotonin and the hormone melatonin.


Melatonin is a hormone that is naturally produced in the so-called pineal gland in the brain when we are in a dark environment. Exposure to light, on the other hand, causes melatonin production to be reduced. Melatonin helps reduce the time it takes to fall asleep and alleviate subjective jet lag symptoms.


Probiotics means “for life”. The word can be derived from the Latin pro, "for", which is followed by the ancient Greek bios, "life". That actually explains a lot, because probiotics are living microorganisms that primarily enter the organism through the mouth and work their wonders there - because they contribute to good health in many ways. They help ensure that our "biome", the composition of all cells, bacteria, viruses and fungi interact in a symbiosis and balance. The microbiome refers to all microorganisms that live in and on our bodies - bacteria, viruses and fungi.


Prebiotics are indigestible food components. Above all, these components can be identified as long-chain carbohydrates. These long-chain carbohydrates cannot be broken down by the enzymes that we as humans produce during the digestive process. This means they travel to the colon undigested and unharmed by stomach acid. Once there, they serve as food for the bacteria in our intestinal flora. What makes them so special is that prebiotics can only be digested by selected, health-promoting types of bacteria. This further explains why prebiotics are so good for our health. Or, in most cases, prebiotics are dietary fibers - but not every dietary fiber counts as prebiotics. Only dietary fibers that serve as fuel for “good” bacteria may be labeled as such. Prebiotics have a handful of positive effects on our organism.


Inulin is a dietary fiber and can also be consumed in its pure form. Due to the wide-ranging and intensive research into inulin, pure intake is relatively widespread.


Polyphenols are micronutrients that are naturally formed in leaves and fruits. Packed with antioxidants and potential health benefits, they are some of the most valuable components of any plant. Organic compounds include, for example, substances such as flavonoids, tannic acid and ellagitannin.


Caffeine is a natural psychoactive substance found in various plants including coffee beans, tea plants, cocoa beans and kola nuts. It is one of the most commonly used stimulants worldwide.
