    Vitamin B12, Cobalamin has the highest B number of 12, as it has the largest molecular structure of any vitamin and contains the mineral Cobalt. This points to its incredible importance as a conversion co factor for gaining energy from carbohydrate, protein and fat. It is essential for our red blood cell production from bone marrow, for daily cellular replication and to retain nerve health through maintaining its protective sheath.

    Vitamin B12 is only found in foods of animal origin, predominantly; red meat, poultry, fish and shellfish such as clam and oyster, egg and milk products (although dairy is...

    Niacin was first discovered through the investigation into a condition called pellagra (pelle = pale, agra = sour) in humans and black tongue in dogs and occurs as a result of vitamin B3 Niacin deficiency.

    Looking at Bill Clinton in 2018 versus throughout his tenure as the 42nd president of the United States (1993-2001), you will see he is a changed man.

    For starters, he’s a lot thinner. It’s no secret that Clinton battled to keep his weight in check throughout his terms as president and at 1 x annual checkup in 1999, the White House physician noted the president had put on 9kgs since his last checkup, two years prior.

    Clinton didn't know it at the time, but weight was not his biggest health challenge. He had a family history of heart...

    Magnesium is an incredibly important mineral requiring at least 100mg per day, as it is supports our bodies structural integrity. In fact, it makes up 0.05% of our body weight and has a high concentration in our brain and heart. But the really special thing about magnesium is its involvement in more than 300 enzyme reactions for energy production, muscle and nerve functioning and blood pressure regulation. It also supports bone mineralisation and is a leading cofactor required for other enzymes to do their work. It balances out calcium and is an energy metabolism cofactor for carbohydrates, protein and fat...
