The quality of our ingredients is something that sets VitaminSupport apart.
We are one of the few companies that uses active forms of vitamins in all of our supplements. We only use the active forms for easy digestion and for the full absorption of the vitamins, so that you receive the most benefits out of each serving.
For example, Vitamin B12 in our products is in the form of Methylcobalamin, rather than the widely used and inexpensive cyanocobalamin. Cyanocobalamin does not occur in living organisms, but animals can convert commercially-produced cyanocobalamin (which contains a very small amount of cyanide) into active forms of the vitamin, such as Methylcobalamin. The amount of cyanide that is released during this process is so small that its toxicity is negligible.
By using Methylcobalamin there is no breakdown or metabolism necessary by the body. This means you are getting the full amount of the vitamin in its most active and absorbable form.
All of our vitamins are in their active form. Here are a few other examples of our ingredients:
VitaminSupport uses Vitamin B6 in the form of Pyridoxal 5'-phosphate, which is the metabolically active form of B6 that does not need to be converted by the body to be used.
VitaminSupport also uses Vitamin C as Ascorbic Acid, a naturally occurring organic compound with antioxidant properties. Ascorbic acid is the most easily digestible form, unlike other forms of Vitamin C on the market, such as calcium ascorbate, which needs to be converted in the stomach in order to be used.
In addition, VitaminSupport uses Thiamin (Vitamin B1) as Thiamine HCL, which is the most absorbable form of B1. Other companies use Thiamine Mononitrate, which is a synthetic, chemical form of Vitamin B1 that needs to be metabolized by the body for digestion.
The Zinc in VitaminSupport is in the form of Zinc Citrate. Other companies use Zinc Gluconate, which needs to be metabolized by the body to be used, and its bioavailability is minimal. Since we use the active form of Zinc Citrate in VitaminSupport, you will receive a potent serving of Zinc.
VitaminSupport does NOT use extracts from herbs. VitaminSupport uses the powdered form of whole organically grown herbs, giving you the maximum benefit that each herb provides. You can compare it to taking an apple and squeezing out the juice. You leave behind the skin and the pulp that contains many of the nutrients. Most companies use extracts from herbs as it is easier and more cost efficient. Our organically grown whole herbal powders have a broad range of constituents to support the body.
VitaminSupport does NOT use any artificial fillers in our products. One popular filler, also known as a "flow agent", that is commonly used in supplements is magnesium stearate. This filler is used to easily fill the capsules during production. Some studies have shown that fillers such as magnesium stearate may reduce the absorption of the vitamins and nutrients in the body.
