Terranova B Complex with Vitamin C is formulated with ingredients which allow the body to resist the damaging effects of physical or psychological stress and restore optimal physiological function.
The formulation provides the full spectrum of B Vitamins, plus choline and inositol, along with Vitamin C, and a MAGNIFOOD COMPLEX featuring botanicals that work in synergy with these nutrients.
While most B complex supplements include folic acid and vitamin B12, this formulation features calcium L-methylfolate and methylcobalamin. Research has shown that calcium L-methylfolate is a more bioavailable form of folate rather than folic acid as it is better absorbed, and not affected by metabolic defects. Data suggests that between 6-14% of the population may have a methylene tetrahydrofolate reductase or MTHFR gene mutation, resulting in a highly reduced ability to convert folic acid into a usable form within the body. Calcium L-methylfolate is not affected in the same way and is therefore suitable for all users, with the added benefit of enhanced utilisation.
The Vitamin B12 used in Terranova products is in the form of methylcobalamin which has been shown to have superior bioavailability in comparison with the more commonly used cyanocobalamin form of B12, generally used by most other supplement manufacturers. Methylcobalamin has been shown to be better absorbed and retained in higher amounts within body tissues, which results in more effective utilisation.
Choline, a crucial nutrient for energy, metabolism, mental focus and cardiovascular health, is provided as VitaCholine™. This premium ingredient is made to the highest standards and is the global leader in choline.
MAGNIFOOD COMPLEX comprises synergistic botanical and wholefood ingredients. These metabolic catalysts are significantly enhanced by the fresh freeze drying of the plant ingredients which include:
STABILIZED RICE BRAN is a major nutritional source of B-vitamins, various active B-vitamin metabolites and other nutrients that support the function and/or bioavailability of B-vitamins (such as magnesium and zinc) as well as nutrients often depleted during different types of stress (such as potassium, zinc, and iron).
RHODIOLA ROOT has significant adaptogenic properties and may support healthy mental and nervous system function.
SIBERIAN GINSENG is one of the most researched adaptogens and may help support adrenal and nerve health.
ASHWAGANDHA ROOT, like ginseng and rhodiola, has historically been used for its adaptogenic properties and may support nerve health.
GREEN OAT SEED is a rich source of B-vitamins as well as minerals which support the functions of B-vitamins. The milk stage seeds are often used to support healthy nerve function.
ALFALFA FLOWER & LEAF is one of nature’s most nutritious plants. Alfalfa provides B-vitamins (and magnesium, which facilitates their utilisation) and other nutrients that may help maintain nerve health.
DANDELION LEAF is another plant source of B-vitamins and B-vitamin-supportive nutrients such as potassium, iron, calcium and magnesium.
PARSLEY LEAF is a source of B-vitamins (especially folate), and provides various nutrients which support the function and/or activity of certain B-vitamins, such as potassium (which is depleted by stress in general) magnesium, calcium, vitamin C, and iron (which is more rapidly depleted during physical stress).
BEETROOT JUICE & GREENS contains various B-vitamins and is especially rich in folate. Like alfalfa, parsley and dandelion, beetroot also provides other supportive nutrients i.e., potassium, iron and zinc.
PUMPKIN SEED is one of the richest natural sources of zinc, which can be rapidly depleted during mental stress. The seed is also high in other supportive nutrients such as magnesium and iron.
