BEROCCA Focus 50+ Eff. 30s

Berocca Focus 50+ effervescent tablets are a vitamin and mineral supplement to a normal healthy diet and can be used to help you get the most from your nutrition to promote a healthy active life with improved concentration, clarity and stamina. The benefit of Berocca has been demonstrated in a placebo controlled clinical trial particularly reducing anxiety and perceived stress. The ginseng component of Berocca Focus 50+ effervescent tablets is also thought to contribute to mental and physical well-being and its properties have been detailed in a World Health Organisation monograph on selected medicinal plants having uses supported by clinical data, as a prophylactic and restorative agent for enhancement of mental and physical capacities, in cases of weakness, exhaustion, tiredness and loss of concentration, and during convalescence.

Berocca Focus 50+ contains a range of vitamins and minerals, which are micronutrients needed in small amounts but are essential to promote good health. Berocca Focus contains vitamin C that plays an important role in several of biosynthetic pathways, such as acting as a cofactor for the enzymes involved in the biosynthesis of collagen, which is important for healthy skin, wound healing, maintenance and repair of connective tissue like tendons and ligaments and maintaining healthy bones. Vitamin C is also an antioxidant and helps protect against oxidative stress causing cell damage. The B series of vitamins play an important role in cell metabolism, which in basic terms is the conversion of organic materials, like carbohydrates, into energy. They are also involved in maintaining healthy skin and muscle tone, a healthy immune and nervous system, producing enough red blood cells, which if deficient results in anaemia. Water soluble vitamins like Vitamin C and the B series are not manufactured by the body and any excess is excreted in the urine not stored, so it important to have the correct daily intake. Panax Ginseng extract is made from the root of a plant found in the Northern Hemisphere and East Asia with medicinal properties that have been used for thousands of years. The active components of Panax Ginseng are ginsenosides, which comprise a diverse group of steroidal saponins. Ginseng has been the subject of several clinical trials and is thought to have many pharmacological actions that account for its many properties due to its effects on the immune system and the hormone system controlled by the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal gland axis. This action of ginseng in Berocca Focus is thought to contribute to the improved cognitive performance and improved immune system function.
