We aren't quite into the thick of the silly season yet, but you can rest assured it isn't too far away.
Look after your self now so you won't have to do the ambulance at the bottom of the cliff trick. A little bit of extra nourishment now to get your oVer the hump could be worth its weight in gold.
B Vitamins, helpful for delivering you safely through the "silly season".
Most of us have seen the products on shelves known as Stress Formula's, B vitamins that are put together in a way to help reduce the stress our body feels - when we are stressed.
And most of us are aware that when we are stressed out we will use more of our precious B Vitamins.
But what are B Vitamins?
The “B” Vitamins are a group of water-soluble vitamins and yes, they are highly beneficial in times of stress; they assist with looking after cardio-vascular health and cognitive function and they help to support normal healthy homocysteine levels(which is important when we have concerns about cholesterol) this is one of the many roles of the liver.
We need B Vitamins to spark life into many processes because B vitamins function as coenzymes or catalysts for many biochemical reactions. A major function is with converting glucose to energy to fuel the body.
These same B Vitamins are also important in the processing of fat and protein throughout our body and aid in overall metabolism of these elements. In this way, B Vitamins support general well-being as well as energy levels for all of us.
And when it comes to the normal functioning of the nervous system B Vitamins are an absolute "must have", the B complex vitamins also influence the health of skin, hair, eyes and our trusty liver.
And it doesn't stop there, general muscle tone of the entire gastrointestinal tract is also enhanced with proper levels of B vitamins, allowing for the efficient processing of nutrients from the food we eat and ensures that the bowels will function efficiently.
If you are one of the millions of women using oral contraceptives, you may want to include in your day a way to increase your B Vitamin intake as research suggests the pill increases your utilization of B vitamins and many studies have shown that premenstrual and menopausal symptoms may be assisted with additional B complex vitamins and sometimes one or two specific B's such as Vit B 6.
In general it is easier for the body to absorb and utilise nutrients in a liquid form, as opposed to a tablet or a capsule. There is less potential for the presence of any "toxic tagalongs" in the form of excipients; tableting aids, fillers, and additives. A liquid also will cover a larger surface area in the lumen of the small intestine allowing for absorption over a greater area.
Our favourite B Vitamin for a very long time has been the PRL Max B-ND and provides an excellent overall "living sourced" liquid B Complex – nothing synthetic and its available in two sizes for effective and flexible dosing for all needs. This product has nothing artificial in it, no artificial colours, flavours or sweeteners as well as no gluten, dairy or yeast, no benzoates or dodgy preservatives and is stabilised with a certified organic alcohol. It really has it all and due to the very clever natural fermentation process the product is put through, the uptake of the vital B vitamins is unsurpassed. We don't think you can find anything better than this when it comes to B Vitamins in a truly "natural state".

Health snippets(International News)
New study pinpoints probable causes of bee deaths (Source: Soil Association)
The mass die-off of honey bees that pollinate US$30 billion worth of crops in the USA has so decimated America’s apis mellifera population that one bad winter could leave fields fallow, the Soil Association reports. A new study, published in the journals Plos One has pinpointed some of the probable causes of bee deaths and the rather scary results show that averting “beemageddon” will be much more difficult than previously thought. The findings break new ground on why large numbers of bees are dying, though they do not identify the specific cause of CCD, where an entire beehive dies at once.
Peter Melchett, Policy Director at the Soil Association, comments that the finding of scientists at the University of Maryland and the US Department of Agriculture that a cocktail of pesticides and fungicides are contaminating the pollen that American bees collect, fits with other recently published research findings on the effects of pesticides on honeybees and other wild pollinators. The scientists found that bees with pollen contaminated with insecticides and fungicides were less able to resist infection by a parasite that has been implicated in the disastrous Colony Collapse Disorder. While recent research in Europe has focused on the impact of one class of insecticides, the neonicotinoids, the scientists found a staggering 21 agricultural chemicals in one sample of pollen, and on average pollen was contaminated with nine different insecticides and fungicides.
