100% natural vitamin B
From organically grown fruits and plants (tulsi, lemon, and guava)
No synthetic substances added
With 'folic acid' as only nature can produce it
The B vitamins from our diet are involved in energy production, protection of body cells, and amino acid metabolism. Supplements with B vitamins almost always contain factory-produced vitamins.
Most of these synthetic vitamins have very little in common with the natural vitamins present in food. Differences have been observed in absorption and digestion as well. This might not be healthy.
Natural Vitamin B Complex contains only natural vitamins from vitamin-rich extracts of organically grown plants (tulsi or holy basil, lemon, and guava). In addition to the B vitamins, the extracts contain many natural substances that protect the vitamins and possibly support them in their action.
Natural Vitamin B Complex does not contain any synthetic vitamins. The plants and fruits from which these extracts are made are also free of synthetic substances since they have grown without pesticides or fertilizer. You can read more about this below.
Ask Kris Kuiper, MSc,
The cultivation and processing of the tulsi or holy basil, lemon, and guava, which are used for Natural Vitamin B Complex are unique in many respects:
1) Use is made of non-genetically modified plants (non-GMOs).
2) Cultivation is organic: without use of pesticides or fertilizer.
3) The tulsi or holy basil, lemon, and guava extracts are obtained through aqueous extraction. No toxic chemical solvents such as hexane or methanol have been used.
4) No carriers, anti-caking agents, or other excipients have been added to the extract.
5) The extracts have not been supplemented with synthetic vitamins.
In the United States, many processed foods are enriched with synthetic folic acid (vitamin B9). There has been an outcry about this because it has been shown that the body processes synthetic folic acid very differently from natural folic acid.
The human body should be able to convert synthetic folic acid in an active vitamin. However, not everyone converts it equally efficient. Therefore synthetic folic acid could be built up in the body. Which impact synthetic folic acid has on the human body isn't entirely clear. But there are strong indications that a folic rich diet reduces the risk of cancer, while it's been proven many times that synthetic folic acid increases the risk of cancer.
Natural folic acid contains a series of substances which are clearly different from synthetic folic acid. That is why these natural substances have been given another name: 'folate'. Natural Vitamin B Complex contains only natural B vitamins and natural folate.

It does not contain any known allergens.
We also provide a Natural Vitamin C which is extracted from organically grown amla.
Take 1 capsule daily during a meal. Maximum dosage 2 capsules per day.
Preferably take the capsule with a meal containing fat. The vitamin B will be better absorbed that way.

Dietary supplements fit in a healthy lifestyle but are not a substitute for a varied diet. A balanced diet contains enough vitamins.

There are no known negative interactions between medicines and Natural Vitamin B Complex at a dosage of up to 2 capsules per day.
No side effects are to be expected at a dosage of up to 4 capsules.
Plant extracts do not contain vitamin B12. Natural Vitamin B Complex only contains plant-based B vitamins from tulsi or holy basil, lemon, and guava and therefore there is no vitamin B12 in it.
Only animal products contain vitamin B12. We store this vitamin in the liver. If no more vitamin B12 is ingested, the liver supply can last for years. A shortage of vitamin B12 only arises when no animal products have been eaten for a long time, as is the case with vegetarians and especially vegans, or when the vitamin B12 has not been absorbed properly for years.
A dietary supplement with a low dosage of vitamin B12 often does not solve the problem when it is not being absorbed properly. These people can receive vitamin B12 injections in order to replenish their vitamin stores. Supplements with a very high dosage of synthetic vitamin B12 could also solve the problem.
If you suspect that you are not absorbing vitamin B12 properly, then pay your general practitioner a visit.
