OTS Mulitvitamin is a full-spectrum multivitamin with Albion chelated minerals for maximum absorption and bioavailability. This powerhouse multivitamin supplies supportive nutrients not normally found in regular multis, such as alpha lipoic acid, TMG, fruit bioflavanoids, choline, and inositol. This formula also contains high gamma tocopherol vitamin E, high levels of all the B vitamins, including our proprietary NatureFolate™ blend of active isomer naturally-occurring folates, and natural mixed carotenoids. This copper and iron-free version is appropriate for men and postmenopausal women.*
This very powerful B vitamin combination formula supplies most of the B vitamins in their coenzymated forms, so the body does not have to phosphorylate them in order to be used in biochemical reactions. This formula also includes our proprietary NatureFolate™ blend of active isomer naturally-occurring folates. TMG and choline are included to support methylation. Made with non-GMO ingredients.
Homocysteine is a natural amino acid made by the body during the metabolism of the essential amino acid methionine. The pathway between methionine and homocysteine is a cycle – methionine metabolizes to homocysteine, and then homocysteine recycles back to become methionine. During this cycle, nutrients are synthesized for biochemical reactions such as detoxification, healthy immune function, ideal joint and cartilage structure, and brain and cardiovascular health. The optimal functioning of this pathway depends on enzymes which require many important nutrients, especially B vitamins. Any roadblock during the process can cause an undesirable elevation in homocysteine levels. The amount of homocysteine in the blood is a great indicator of overall health, with the goal being to maintain a level within normal range, as determined by your health care practitioner.
Methyl-B-12 5,000mcg SL lozenges are a great tasting, high dose vitamin B12 product. Each berry flavored lozenge contains 5000 mcg methylcobalamin, a naturally occurring, highly bioavailable form of vitamin B12. They are designed to deliver B12 through the mucous membranes in order to bypass the need for intrinsic factor, a protein produced in the stomach that is necessary for maximal GI absorption of B12. Vitamin B12 in supplement form also reduces the need for stomach acid, which is typically required to separate food-derived B12 from food proteins. It is important to let the lozenge dissolve slowly and not chew it in order to allow the vitamin to be absorbed properly through the mucosal tissue that lines mouth. Made with GMO-free ingredients.
