Let's meet Super B!

Super B is a comprehensive multi-vitamin/multi-mineral complex containing all eight essential, energy-boosting B vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9 and B12). Recently reformulated, it now features Orgen-FA®, a natural folate source derived from lemon peels and methylcobalamin, a more bioavailable source of B12.

Combined with Nutmeg essential oil and bioavailable chelated minerals such as magnesium, manganese, selenium, and zinc, Super B not only assists in maintaining healthy energy levels, but it also supports the normal function of the immune system, helps protect against oxidative stress caused by free radicals and much more. 

B vitamins are essential to our health and well-being, and each B vitamin performs a unique and separate function in the body. They must be replenished daily, since they are not stored in the body.

The benefits of the Super B supplement include:

  • Source of vitamins and minerals that support biological functions which play a key role in the maintenance of good health.
  • Helps to prevent deficiency in vitamin B3, B6, B12, pantothenic acid, riboflavin, thiamine, biotin and folate.
  • Helps to maintain healthy hair, nail, mucous membranes, skin and cognitive functions.
  • Helps to form red blood cells and maintain normal red blood cells.
  • Helps in energy metabolism and production, in the body’s ability to metabolize nutrients, and in the maintenance of normal metabolism of iron.
  • Source of selenium, an antioxidant for the maintenance of good health, which helps protect against oxidative stress and damage caused by free radicals.
  • Helps to maintain normal function of the immune system, development and maintenance of bones, muscle function, DNA synthesis, thyroid gland function, connective tissue formation, and acid-base metabolism. Also helps in the process of normal regulation of cell division and specialisation.
  • Adequate calcium (and vitamin D) throughout life, as part of a healthy diet, along with physical activity, may help prevent bone loss/osteoporosis, and reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis (in peri- and post-menopausal women) in later life.

Who needs Super B?

  • Pregnant women or women trying to conceive. 
  • Vegans or vegetarians. In people that do not regularly eat meat, it is a good idea to supplement as meat is a major source. Also, most B vitamins are water soluble and therefore not stored by the body. This means that they must be ingested every day.
  • If you drink 1-2 alcoholic drinks daily, it is a good idea to supplement.
  • People over the age of 65. As we age we develop decreased ability to absorb nutrients from our food. This means that regular supplementation is beneficial
  • People taking hormonal birth control. Oral contraception depletes B vitamins.
  • History or risk of heart disease. Certain B vitamins lower homocysteine levels in the body which may be cardioprotective.
  • Chronic high stress and/or depression and anxiety. 
B complex also helps people who are tired and worn out from stress or mental fatigue. Supplementing with a B complex is a simple intervention to boost energy and lift mood.
B vitamins are great for anyone needing a boost in energy. Because vitamin B12 is primarily found in animal products, a B vitamin supplement is especially beneficial for those who adhere to a vegetarian or vegan diet. The small tablets are easy to swallow and do not have an aftertaste.

So who needs Super B? EVERYONE!!!

Did you know???

B vitamins in Super B

* Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin that keeps your nerves and red blood cells healthy. It is responsible for the smooth functioning of several critical body processes. A deficiency in Vitamin B12 is usually reported with symptoms of fatigue. To read some more incredible information on Vitamin B12, I love the book "Cancer Killers" by Dr Charles Majors & Dr Ben Lerner.

* Super B also contains Vitamin B2. B2 deficiency can hamper the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, as these elements would require Vitamin B2 for its complete metabolism. Some symptoms of B2 deficiency include dull or oily hair, premature wrinkles, and split nails. Riboflavin deficiency could result in the improper functioning of adrenal glands, which in turn would result in various conditions such as anemia, chronic fatigue syndrome and cataract development.

* It also contains B3! The top five health benefits of vitamin B3 are as follows: The primary health benefit of vitamin B3 is a significant decrease in heart disease. It helps lower the level of bad cholesterol. Studies have shown that a key health benefit of vitamin B3 is the elevation of good (HDL) cholesterol levels.

* The health benefits of Vitamin B7 or Biotin include improved metabolism, tissue maintenance, healthy skin, weight loss, relief from heart problems, alopecia, Parkinson's disease, Rett syndrome and vaginal candidiasis. It also aids in the synthesis of vital components and helps in maintaining blood sugar levels. I'm all about that healthy skin, hair, nails, and weight loss 😉

* Folate, or vitamin B9 (also in Super B!) is one of many essential vitamins. You may also be familiar with folic acid as a form of folate; folic acid is the synthetic version used for food fortification and supplements. Folate is important because it plays a role in DNA synthesis and repair. This is big & amazing 🙂 Especially you pregnant mamas, please insist on folate vs folic acid in your prenatal wellness regimen for the absolute best your babe can get.

* B6 is a big one. Here are some of the benefits that will make you want to pretty much bathe in it:
1. Vitamin B6 helps maintain healthy brain function.
2. The vitamin plays a key role in synthesizing antibodies that are needed to fight various diseases.
3.Vitamin B6 helps in maintaining normal nerve function. It plays a crucial role in the synthesis of neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin. It also assists normal nerve cell communication.
4. The vitamin helps in forming red blood cells.
5. It helps in breaking down and digesting proteins. So, the higher the protein intake, the greater is the requirement of vitamin B6.

* B5. It's the bomb. Here's why: An adequate supply of vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) is important as it helps the body to
-convert food into glucose, used to produce energy-break down fats, carbohydrates, and proteins for energy generation-synthesize cholesterol-form red blood cells, as well as sex and stress-related hormones.
Also: Studies suggest that vitamin B5 supplements may speed wound healing, especially following surgery.
Several studies also suggest that vitamin B5 (pantethine) may help to reduce cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood of people with elevated blood fats. Aaaaand also: Some very preliminary evidence suggests that pantothenic acid supplements might help with symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. In conclusion, vitamin B5 is kind of a big deal.

I’ve got to two more sneaky benefits of B vitamins you may not have heard of before...1) Are you prone to canker sores? I have heard this could be a deficiency of Vitamin B! 2) Do mosquitoes LOVE you? Use Super B!

Mosquitoes don’t like vitamin B in our blood.

The B Vitamins
  • Thiamine ( Vitamin B1) is an essential component to energy products, carbohydrate metabolism and nerve function at the cellular level.
  • Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) assists with the production of cellular energy and helps to regenerate the liver while supporting normal cellular health.
  • Niacin (Vitamin B3) is important for the product of carbohydrates into an energy source. It can lower cholesterol and regulates blood sugar. *May cause niacin flush.
  • Pyridoxine HCL (Vitamin B6) is supportive to the cardiovascular and specifically blood vessels. It is assimilated when B12, magnesium and folic acid are present.
  • Folic Acid (Vitamin B9) prevents heart disease and birth defects. It must have B6 and B12 to work fully.
  • Methylcobalamin (Vitamin B12) is essential for red blood cell production, immune function and nervous system function. It works with Vitamin B6 to support the cardiovascular system. You may have heard of pernicious anemia which is a lack of B12.
  • Biotin (Vitamin B7) helps to convert fats and amino acids into energy. It is also supportive to healthy hair and nail growth. It can combat yeast and fungus overgrowth.
  • Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5) assists with the secretion of hormones and supports the adrenal glands. Energy is released with metabolism of fats, proteins and carbohydrates.
