Last week we talked about the building blocks of health – probiotics, Vitamin D, fish oils, magnesium, and multivitamins/greens. In this week’s column we look at the sixth building block, Vitamin B Complex and introduce a product made right here in Cochrane!
Life Choice B Complex is a completely vegan, non-GMO, organic plant-based B-Complex, with the world’s only Vegetarian Society and Vegan Society registered Vitamin D-3 (others are from fish oils or from sheep’s wool). It has added B-12 (methylcobalamin), Biotin and PABA in a proprietary blend of spinach, blueberry, turmeric and ginger, all sourced from organic sources.
Conditions B Complex may help include autoimmune disorders, bone disorders, depression, diabetes, heart diseases, hypertension, influenza, obesity, osteoporosis, and rheumatoid arthritis. For those with chronic stress and/or depleted energy, B-Complex vitamins with the proprietary blend revitalizing whole food nutrients, and botanicals will support your adrenals and central nervous system function. Life Choice B Complex has no hidden additives–iron-free, gluten-free, sugar-free, lactose-free, dairy-free, wheat-free and yeast-free. B Complex is 100% natural, and contains no artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, preservatives or additives.
This high-potency vitamin B complex supports natural energy, brain health and stress management. In addition biotin supports metabolism and promotes healthy levels of blood glucose. Biotin is involved in cell growth, fat production, and metabolism. Deficiency symptoms include various skin disorders, including grayish pallor, loss of appetite and nausea, low-grade anemia, weariness, insomnia, muscle pain, depression, hypoglycemia and hair loss. Therapeutic applications include eczema and candida.
Methyl-B12- Methylcobalamin is the bioactive form that boosts immunity, and fights the decay of aging at the cellular level. Supplementation with B12 can lead to improved memory, higher concentration, and sharper metal energy. It also fights heart disease and lowers overly high homocysteine levels, and is a well-known treatment for anemia. B12 also improves sleep, and relieves asthma and allergies, and has been associated with improved mood and stress relief. In particular, B12 provides protection against typical age-related memory loss. In fact, it has been long considered as one of the essential longevity supplements
PABA is important for healthy skin and hair pigment and has been used, together with biotin, folic acid, pantothenic acid, and sometimes vitamin E, to restore hair. The Vitamin D3 used in LC B Complex is an exclusive trademarked vegan D3, sourced naturally from lichens. Known as the sunshine vitamin, individuals with a suitable level of Vitamin D in their diet and those who supplement are typically much better equipped to fight off colds, ailments and seasonal affective disorder (SAD). There are links to preventing many types of diseases by consuming adequate Vitamin D. It also has reparative properties and often high levels of Vitamin D3 are given to patients during treatment to recover from different illnesses and diseases associated with Vitamin D deficiency (Inc. bone, muscular, growth, blood conditions).
