Formula health is wealth seems more than ever relevant in 2021. You most likely have skimmed through all the recent researches in regards to vitamin D and its value. Your nutrition though is far more complex than keeping your D levels at norm. We know how overwhelming it can be digging deep into this topic alone. Therefore, today The Jar - Healthy Vending team prepared for you a so-called vitamin and minerals ‘starter pack’ digest about Zn, Mg, Biotin.
Zinc or Zn as seen on most of the vitamins packs is a truly essential mineral for our health. This nutrient is responsible for regulating your immune system and preventing you from getting sick. Scientifically saying it helps to activate your lymphocytes that guard your body against infection. As a bonus Zinc also positively affects your memory and learning capabilities. It plays a crucial role in communication regulation of neurons affecting the way our memory is formed.
Three main Zn benefits:
Supports functioning of immune system
Fights off infected cells
Three main Zn deficiency symptoms:
Impaired immune system
Loss of appetite
The most important fact about zinc is that it is not naturally produced in our body. We do not store excess zinc and must consume it as a part of our daily diet. Many foods contain zinc however, most of them are not plant based nor easily accessible such as oysters and crab. For those who give preference to plant based diet The Jar - Healthy Vending has plenty of nutritious snacks to offer in our London vending machines including Pollen & Grace Vibrant Jackfruit + Yuzu Courgetti Pot and Pollen & Grace Cherry + Almond Porridge Pot
Another mineral in our digest is magnesium which is so much less heard about than many other nutrients. However, it's hard to deny Mg’s importance for the human body. Magnesium is involved in hundreds of enzyme reactions in our body.
Three main Mg benefits:
Contributes to bone density
Regulates blood sugar levels
Supports muscles and nerves functioning
Three main Mg deficiency symptoms:
Magnesium luckily can be found in many foods which contribute to a healthy diet including greens, nuts, seafood, legumes and cacao. Although options can vary by one’s preferences, we can guarantee that our healthy vending machines are always stocked with snacks and beverages filled with Mg. Choose between the best green juices and smoothies on our drinks page to find the one for your taste.
Biotin is a water-soluble vitamin which belongs to the family of B vitamins (Fun fact: the other name of the vitamin is H). As well as magnesium it is involved in many metabolic processes in the human body and greatly contributes to transforming other nutrients into energy.
Three main Biotin benefits:
Boosts the health of nails and hair
Protects liver functioning
Three main Biotin deficiency symptoms:
Biotin works the same as zinc in means of its storage in the body. It is water-soluble and needs to be taken everyday as a part of your eating routine. The main natural source of biotin is organ meats, thought least appetizing to say the truth. Other options include legumes, sweet potato, egg yolks, nuts and seeds.
