Be Big is an organic dietary supplement
Calcium 250 mg
Vitamin D3 2.5 mkg
Bamboo powder containing organic silicium 2.3 mg (max.)
Vitamin B1 0.8 mg
The positive impact the bamboo extract has on the skin is used by cosmetics manufactures to make the hair stronger and glossier and by global fast food industries to make food less carcinogenic. However, Vision is the only company which allows you to combine the useful properties of the bamboo extract and those of the micronutrients the human body needs to ensure its healthy growth and development.
Calcium is essential to ensure a normal functioning of the human body. Calcium, along with phosphorous, constitutes the basic construction material for bone tissue, stimulates essential enzymes, helps maintain ionic equilibrium in the body, is necessary to ensure a normal excitation/relaxation ratio of the nervous system and muscular contractility, and is a factor in improving the coagulating properties of the blood.
The lack of calcium in the body leads to hyperexcitability of the nervous system and fits of tetany. While adults still need around 0.8 - 1.2 grams of calcium, calcium is of particular importance for children whose bodies are actively growing and developing.
Extract of bamboo
Silicium is one of the most important micro-elements that go into our bodyís makeup. It participates in assimilating calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, sodium, sulfur, aluminum, cobalt, and many other elements. When there is a silicium deficit, 76 of 104 elements are not assimilated by the body or are assimilated incorrectly. A silicium deficit can lead to various illnesses.
While Calcium is most essential for the development of the hard bone tissue, silicium is a determining element in shaping the properties of such soft structures as:
tendon connective tissue;
vascular walls and the gastrointestinal tract;
internal secretion glands;
synovial fluid (joint oil); and
valves of the cardio-vascular system.
Given the above, silicium is necessary to the normal development and functioning of the said structures. The reason why connective tissue has so much silicon in its composition has to do with the fact that silicium is a structural component in glycosaminoglycans and their protein complexes which form the framework of that tissue and impart firmness and elasticity to it.
The silicium level in the aorta decreases not only with age, but during the process of the development of atherosclerosis. A diet rich in plant cellulose facilitates good silicium assimilability, since it accumulates silicium. Aging processes develop faster when there is a plant cellulose and silicium deficit.
Vitamin B1 is an essential component of the enzymes which regulate carbohydrate and energetic metabolism in the body, improves the functioning of the muscles and the nervous system, and prevents polyneuritis and beriberi. A person who lacks that Vitamin tends to get tired and lose his temper easily, and also suffer from insomnia.
B1 is present predominantly in products of vegetable origin: grain, cereals (oats, buckwheat, and millet), coarse flour (grain components which contain most of Vitamin В1 are removed with the bran when flour is subjected to fine grinding, thus bringing the contents of Vitamin В1 in fine grade flour and bread to a minimum). Sprouted grain, bran, and beans are especially rich in that vitamin. Vitamin В1 is also present in meat, eggs, yeast, and nuts.
25 - 30% of vitamin В1 is lost when food products are subjected to culinary heat processing, and the vitamin is destroyed altogether when it is subjected to lengthy boiling. B1 also breaks down when it comes into contact with metals. A decrease in assimilability of vitamin В1 may be caused, firstly, by an anti-vitamin - enzyme of thiaminase contained in thermically poorly processed fresh-water fish - and, secondly, by a large quantity of tea taken daily. A vitamin В1 insufficiency arises when there is excessive consumption of carbohydrates, and also when there are intestinal diseases (enteritises, colitises). Therefore it is very important to take bioactive food supplements in order that the growing body get the necessary daily dosage of В1.
Vitamin D possesses the ability to regulate the phosphorous-calcium metabolism, ensures absorption of calcium and phosphorous in the intestines and reabsorption of calcium and phosphorous in the kidney tubules, and facilitates mineralization of bone tissue. Vitamin D is necessary to the bodyís growth and to support bones and teeth in a healthy condition, and it facilitates an increase in the bodyís resistance and prevention of oncopathology.
An insufficiency of vitamin D leads to breakdown of the phosphorous-calcium metabolism, a consequence of which is rickets - deformation of the bones as a result of the breakdown of the processes of their mineralization.
There is practically no vitamin D in plant products. Fish products - fish oil and cod liver - contain the largest amounts of the vitamin. Additional food sources of vitamin D are butter and eggs. Unfortunately, fish products are rarely used in childrenís diets, and so bioactive food supplements are an important source of that vitamin.
