B Vitamins for Life

health, fitness, nutrition, wellness

A randomized trial of high-dose B vitamins including B12, B6, and folic acid, suggest the rate of  brain atrophy may be slowed by treatment in elderly people with mild cognitive impairment  (MCI). The trial included 168 participants, age 70 years and older. The treatment group, 85  participants, were supplemented with homocysteine-lowering B vitamins: folic acid, vitamin  B12, and vitamin B6. The remaining 83 participants were given a placebo to provide a control  group. Both groups were given MRI’s before and after the study. The mean rate of brain atrophy  after 2 years was 1.08% for the control group and .76% for the treatment group. Supplementation  dosage used was 800mcg folic acid, 500mcg cyanocobalamin (B12), and 20mg of pyridoxine  HCL (B6). 

Since it is sometimes difficult to know which vitamin B supplement to recommend, here is a list  of the ingredients and common uses in some of your options to supplement with B vitamins: 

B12-2000 

Contains 800mcg of folic acid, 2000mcg of vitamin B12 as hydroxocobalamin, and 2.5mg of  vitamin B6 as pyridoxal-5-phosphate. Each bottle provides 60 days (1 lozenge/day) of nutritional  support to help maintain adequate vitamin B12, folic acid, and B6 levels. This great tasting  lozenge allows for sublingual uptake of B12 which has been demonstrated to be an effective  means of delivery of this important nutrient. This one is also great for seniors and children.  

Bio-B 100 

A low-dose multiple B vitamin complex supplying the phosphorylated forms of vitamins B1, B2,  and B6 along with the antioxidant enzymes SOD and catalase. Uses include sensitivities to light,  sound and smell, night sweats, HCL insufficiency, burning feet, adrenal dysfunction, and lack of  energy.  

Bio-B 100 

A low-dose multiple B vitamin complex supplying the phosphorylated forms of vitamins B1, B2,  and B6 along with the antioxidant enzymes SOD and catalase. Uses include sensitivities to light,  sound and smell, night sweats, HCL insufficiency, burning feet, adrenal dysfunction, and lack of  energy. 

Bio-B Complex 

A high-potency B complex with SOD and catalase. This complex is for short term use, up to 30  days with recovery from serious debilitation, alcoholism, and homocystinuria. 

Bio-B with C 

Similar to Bio-B Complex but also includes a high-potency vitamin C for digestive support, as  well as organ specific support, with SOD and catalase. Bio-B with C is good for digestive and  hepatic support.

Bio-3B-G 

Provides three times the RDA of the thiamin and 100% of the RDA of the B vitamin group,  including B2, B3, B6, and B12 in the phosphorylated forms. As such, it is similar in nature to  Bio-B-100 with the above noted increase in thiamin. Used for B vitamin support, hypotension,  psychological stress, hypoglycemia, adrenal cortical hypofunction, and acute fatigue. If you or a  loved one is aging here is some good news for brain health and function. Daily vitamin B can  halve the rate of brain shrinkage in elderly people who suffer from mild memory problems, an  Oxford University study has shown. 

Bio-B3 Plus 250 

A high-potency source of supplemental niacinamide with SOD and catalase. Niacinamide has  been documented to down-regulate pro-inflammatory compounds. Used for stroke, osteoarthritis,  hypoglycemia, anxiety, asthma, autism, reducing aggressiveness, and reducing phobias.
