The Nutrient Benefits of REZ
No matter your diet, getting all the necessary vitamins and minerals can be a challenge. In particular, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics identify that vegans and vegetarians could be lacking in these key nutrients: vitamin B12, vitamin D, and zinc. REZ contains all three of these nutrients as well as many others and is certified vegan.
Vitamin B12 plays an essential role in red blood cell formation, cell metabolism, nerve function, and the production of DNA. Since its common food sources include poultry, meat, fish, and dairy products, vegetarians and vegans are more prone to a deficiency. A vitamin B2 deficiency can lead to muscle weakness, intestinal problems, nerve damage, fatigue, and anemia.
Vitamin D is necessary for building and maintaining healthy bones. The body makes vitamin D when direct sunlight converts a chemical in the skin into an active form of the vitamin. Depending on your location and lifestyle, vitamin D production can decrease or be completely absent in winter months. Without vitamin D, bones can become soft, thin, and brittle.
Zinc helps the immune system and metabolism function. It is important for wound healing and your senses of smell and taste. Food sources of zinc include chicken, red meat, and fortified breakfast cereals, which limits the ability of vegans or vegetarians to get their necessary intake of zinc through food.
REZ contains vitamin B12, vitamin D, and zinc among many other beneficial vitamins and minerals. Made with plant-based glucosamine and turmeric, REZ contains zero sugar and fat and is 100% vegan.
