RED BLOOD CELL NUTRIENTS
To help your body produce more red blood cells, it needs the raw materials to make them. That’s why scientists developed a specific formula of vitamins and minerals that ensure additional EPO results in extra RBCs.
Here’s how certain vitamins and minerals can bolster red blood cell production:
Vitamin B-6 (Pyrodixine): A red blood cell is useless without hemoglobin. That’s because hemoglobin is the part of a red blood cell that oxygen attaches to. Research published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry discovered that vitamin B6 is essential for hemoglobin to form. In other words, if you don’t get enough vitamin B6, your red blood cells can’t carry the oxygen you need.
B-12 and Folic Acid: If you’re deficient in either vitamin B12 or folic acid, new red blood cells are “born” misshapen and malfunctioning. This can actually make oxygen transport worse than before. That’s why you need to get supplemental doses of both B12 and Folic Acid. If you do, your new red blood cells become the hard-working oxygen carriers they are supposed to be.
Vitamin B-3: Here’s another vitamin that your body needs in order to pump out new, healthy red blood cells. A daily dose of Vitamin B-3 helps your body produce new red blood cells at a faster clip.
Boron: Boron might not get a lot of press, but it’s emerging as a mineral that can help individuals maintain healthly blood levels. Its beneficial effects stem from the fact that boron can naturally help your body make more red blood cells than it could without extra boron.
Inositol: You may be making more red blood cells, but it doesn’t mean that they’ll last. In fact, the lifespan of red blood cells is about 90 days. By taking inositol you’ll be creating stronger red blood cells – making them work longer for you.
