Pity it's discontinued

Posted on Jul 12, 2012

I used this test in 1999, when I suffered from yeast-allergy problems. Zinc and molybden deficiency both contribute to lowered resistance to yeasts. People who suffer from yeast (Candida) allergies also tend to suffer from mold allergies and sulfite allergy. Zinc is an essential building bloc for the immune system; molybden is used to build the enzyme sulfite oxydase, which helps body to metabolise sulfites. I found that zinc tally test was very accurate, as I had a severe zinc deficiency. For days I could not taste anything at all. I found it very pleasant to drink, possibly because it's a sulfate, and I tend to lack sulfates. After a couple of bottles approximately, the liquid started to taste bitter, then horrible. That was a clear-cut sign that I had filled up with zinc. When I retested many months later, I could still taste the bad taste of sulphur forming, so still no deficiency. The product was quite expensive (it cost 3 times as much in Norway), but it's a small price compared to having zinc deficiency and not knowing it! If we had a lab doing the hair analysis, I guess I would have used that instead. Also Metagenics is a reputable company, used by medical practitioners, so I doubt it was a bad product.

Excellent!

This is how my brain works! I've tried many B-complex's as it is a critical supplement for my 'battered' brain, and although my critical vitamins are B1, B6 and B12, it is better to take tho whole B-complex, because taking a single B-vitamin can contribute to deficiency of a related B-vitamin. They all work in synergy... but in what ratios do they fit best? I've tried other formulas, and they were high quality, but the composition was not quite right. I took 1 capsule today and I feel calm, serene, ... perfectly normal. Thorne has a good & broad selection of B-complex and other supplements. I feel so lucky to be able to purchase these wonderful products!

Excellent

I have combined health problems, and periodically elevated blood glucose (prediabetes. I suffered with terrible tiredness around the period, due to low insulin sensitivity, but because I am not diabetic and I don't take any drugs, I would't take insulin tablets. I noticed immediately that this product was powerful, and since I don't have the full-blown diabetes, I noticed the effect already after a week. My blood glucose has been normal ever since! The best part is that one can take it as needed. I do believe the benfothiamine does what it says it does: it takes this important vitamin across the lipid membrane and into the cells where it is needed. Excellent.

Glucose stabilised

Posted on Nov 08, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

I was developing diabetes type II (as it turns out due to undiagnosed genetic factors), so decided to try this product, as I did have vitamin B1 deficiency. I had metabolic (mitochondrial) malfunction, so even if usually sceptical of the synthetic vitamins, I decided to test the claim that benfotiamine can pass the phosholipid barrier and enter the cells - where the effects of diabetes are felt. In just two weeks (presumably because it only was mildly elevated) my glucose stabilised, and the dreadful tiredness abated! I still take it occasionally, for as long as I need it.

A balanced blend, not too much folic acid

Posted on Apr 03, 2011

Purchased at iHerb

A very good blend, calming and energising. Easy to adjust dose, as it is liquid. I bought it because I don't tolerate well too much folic acid. Most B-complexes contain 400 mcg folic acid, this one only 100mcg. A balanced blend in my opinion. As for people who rate it by the taste, it really is not important. The taste is slightly artificial, nothing unpleasant. I rate products by the efficiency. As for the price, most products sold by Iherb.com are very reasonably priced, quality taken into consideration. Thank you Iherb.com!
