Melcalin® DIMET

Pack: 28 capsules
Net Weight: 37.00 g

Melcalin DIMET is a multivitamin and multi-mineral supplement and contains vegetable components such as green tea extract that, together with vitamin C, help the body’s antioxidant defences against free radicals.

Description:

Vitamins and minerals are substances necessary for our body to carry out normal cellular functions and to ensure protection against free radicals.
Melcalin DIMET is a food supplement that, thanks to a combination of minerals and vitamins, supports various cellular functions: the content in B vitamins (B1, B2, B6, B12, niacin and pantothenic acid)1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,15,16,17,18 and folic acid19 act as adjuvants in the metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids and proteins; chromium plays an important role in glucose metabolism (useful for issues related to imbalances of blood glucose)13, trace elements such as iodine and selenium are necessary for the synthesis and the functionality of the thyroid hormones while magnesium is important for the electrolytic balance, neuromuscular function, cell proliferation and numerous enzymatic activities10,11,12,13,14,28,29,30,31,32. The combination of these materials with substances having antioxidant effects such as vitamin C, green tea extract and Lycopene ensure a wider effect that is also supported by selenium and molybdenum, essential components for the antioxidant defence system20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27.
Melcalin DIMET is therefore a complete food supplement which, thanks to the content of vitamins and minerals, plays an adjuvant role in the daily needs.
