Nu3 is fortified with 8 Vitamins:



Vitamin A

It participates in the cell differentiation and synthesis of proteins, stimulating growth. It supports the integrity of the epithelia by preventing the skin damage and helping it not to get dry and rough. It is one of the main anti- oxidants found in Nature and therefore prevents from the aging process. Vitamin A intervenes in the visual cycle by maintaining the adaptation to twilight.

It is an essential vitamin during childhood since:
  • It contributes to strengthening the body defenses by participating in the Immune System and reducing the susceptibility to infections.
  • It is essential for the growth and development of the bones and of the epithelial cells that form the teeth enamel.
  • It intervenes in the visual cycle preventing the night blindness.
  • It is fundamental during pregnancy since it participates in the development of the embryo.

Vitamin D

  • Participates in the absorption and storage of calcium in the bone structure.
  • Participates in the normal formation of bones and teeth.
  • Regulates the equilibrium between the amount of calcium and phosphorus in the organism.
  • Participates in the formation of red corpuscles.
  • Takes part in the defense mechanisms.
  • Prevents rickets in children.
  • Prevents osteomalacia in adults.

This vitamin is especially important during childhood, adolescence, pregnancy and lactation because:

  • It ensures the right absorption of the calcium and phosphorus required for the development and maintenance of the bone and dental tissue, the joints and the nervous system. It also increases the absorption of these minerals in the intestines and their renewal in the bone structure

Vitamin E

It plays a remarkable antioxidant role that contributes to improving the defense system of the organism. It protects the nervous system, the skeletal muscle and the ocular retina from the oxidant processes. It also protects the organism from infectious and cardiovascular diseases.

Vitamin E is very important during the stages of development and growth since it increases the immune function of the organism, protecting it from illnesses

Vitamin C

Vitamin C has a strong antioxidant function, protects the organism from “free radicals” and therefore from external aggressions.

This vitamin is particularly important during childhood and adolescence because:

  • It supports the resistance to infections through the immune activity.
  • It participates in the healing of wounds, fractures and hemorrhages.
  • It favors the absorption of iron.
  • It is important for the healing of wounds and for the immune system.

Vitamin B1 o Thiamine

This vitamin has a beneficial effect on the nervous system. It participates in the production of energy and facilitates the transmission of nervous impulses.

Vitamin B2 o Riboflavin

It takes part in the production of energy and in the maintenance of the epithelial tissue and mucous membrane. It participates in the creation of antibodies, hormones and red corpuscles.

  • It is of major importance during the stages of growth (childhood and adolescence).
  • During pregnancy, it prevents from bone malformation and from disorders in the brain development of the fetus.

Vitamin B3 o Niacin

It is essential for the health of the nervous system and brain. It takes part in the production of the body’s energy and in the metabolism of proteins, fats and carbohydrates.

This substance is vital during the release of energy to maintain the integrity of all the organism cells and to synthesize the sexual hormones.

Vitamin B6 o Piridoxine

  • It is essential for the growth process since it participates in the adequate assimilation of proteins, carbohydrates and fats.
  • It takes part in the formation of the myelin, layer that covers the nerves (without it the organism cannot produce neither antibodies nor red corpuscles).
  • It is necessary for the formation of the group “hem” of the hemoglobin of red corpuscles.
  • It participates in the synthesis of the nucleic acids (DNA and RNA).
