Vitamin B Discussion:
Researching the processes, relationships, actions, and interactions of different types of vitamins, you may find yourself down a rabbit hole of contradictive, debatable, and conflicting information, only to end up with more questions than you started with. It shouldn’t be so difficult to learn about, choose, or obtain vitamins. This is simply a complex of essential B vitamins.
Herbs may be more comprehensive, especially when multiple parts of the plant are used. Whole food sources may include synergistic compounds that are absent in synthetic sources. This complex contains all essential B vitamins: B1 (Thiamine/Sunflower), B2 (Riboflavin/Muscadine Grapes/Eggs), B3 (Niacin/Ginger, Maitake, & Paprika), B5 (Pantothenic acid/Shitake), B6 (Pyridoxine/Banana Peel/Eggs), B7 (Biotin/Shitake & Maitake/Eggs), B9 (Folic acid/Sunflower), B12 (Cobalamin/Shitake/Eggs), and B17 (Apricot Pit).
This blend consists of all-natural ingredients, has no preservatives, and is vegan safe. In choosing a whole food source you are also getting highly medicinal antioxidants, beta glucans, polysaccharides, fatty acids, phenolic acid compounds, beta-glucans, multiple amino acids, selenium, all of which may also strengthen the immune system. It may be ideal to check your vitamin B levels, as the deficiency symptoms seem to overlap with many other disease symptom pictures.
We use wildcrafted, full-spectrum sunflower, which includes the root, flower, and leaves, the forgotten, yet some of the most nutritious sources that exist! It contains wildcrafted mushrooms like shitake and maitake, which are two of the highest sources for B vitamins. Muscadine Grapes contains resveratrol and quercetin. The resveratrol content of muscadine grapes is 6 times more than common grapes and it is found as a staple in many brands of heart health supplements. Lastly, mushrooms are some of the highest sources of vitamin D. As a matter of fact, it doesn’t take much to receive your daily recommended intake of vitamin D by eating mushrooms.
We recommend mixing this blend in your smoothies, with or without raw eggs. As a matter of fact, raw eggs, especially the yolk, is one of the highest sources for many of the B vitamins. You may also purchase slow-dehydrated egg powder, which yolk is on sale, on our Egg Solutions™ product page.
Vitamin B Information:
- B-1 (Thiamine) – This vitamin plays a key role in the conversion of food into energy, and it helps to keep the nervous system balanced. One of the highest concentrations is in the sunflower, especially the seed.
- B-2 (Riboflavin) – This vitamin is key to the enzymatic reactions and activity with other vitamins, in the production of energy, and keeping the nervous system healthy. Muscadine grape skins are one of the highest sources. Raw eggs are a high source as well.
- B-3 (Niacin) – Niacin plays a role in energy conversion and nervous system health. Ginger root is one of the best sources for this vitamin, as well as maitake mushrooms and paprika.
- B-5 (Pantothenic Acid) – Required for cellular energy production, processes, transportation, fat energy release, and neurotransmitter production. Shitake mushroom and sunflower are two of the highest sources of this vitamin.
- B-6 (Pyridoxine) – This vitamin is important in myelin sheath production, which is the protective barrier around the nerve cells that are often damaged by pathogenic processes. Surprisingly banana peels are high in pyridoxine. A carrot stick may be comparable to the vitamin B6 content of a glass of milk; therefore, we use Queen Anne’s lace, which is a wild carrot, in this blend. Raw eggs may provide the highest amount of this vitamin.
- B-7 (Biotin) – This is also known as vitamin H. It is vital for hair, eye, skin, and brain functioning support. It is also highly supportive of liver health. We may need to consume biotin regularly to reach the daily amounts needed. The biotin in mushrooms is a mechanism to ward off predators and parasites, although sunflowers are one of the highest known vegan sources. Ultimately eggs are one of the known highest sources.
- B-9 (Folic Acid) – This B vitamin assists in the transformation of DNA and RNA, metabolism of protein, red blood cell production and health, which may be ideal to support anemia or pregnancy. Sunflower helps us to supplement this vitamin with ease, as it may take only a small amount to highly surpass the daily intake recommendations.
- B-12 (Cobalamin) – B12 is important to maintain nerve and blood cell processes, energy production, nervous system strength, and our DNA components at optimal health. Shitake mushrooms may help us to surpass the daily intake recommendation, as only a little of this vitamin may be needed. Adding eggs to your smoothies may also help us to receive adequate daily cobalamin.
- B-17 (Amygdalin) – Lastly, B17 is a rare compound that is said to be a compound that may have been modified and removed from our diet that may be key in helping us to fight disease. We use apricot pit in this mix as a source of vitamin B17.
