Vegans and B12 deficiency risk. Can we help? Yes.

In an interesting article on the BBC news last December, experts were warning that people eating a vegan diet need to make sure they get enough B12 - because the risk of deficiency is "not a myth". The diet is generally high in fibre and low in cholesterol, but some nutrients are harder to get enough of - including B12.

B12 It is found in meat, fish, eggs and dairy products, but not in fruits, vegetables or grains - so those eating a vegan diet are advised to eat fortified foods, like cereals, or take supplements.

Our Plant based Vitamin B12 is the perfect solution for vegans. It is also trendy as it is 100% natural, from botanicals sources and organic certified.

Furthermore, LEHVOSS Nutrition offer a Plant based, organic certified, range of Vitamins and Minerals, including a multivitamin option.

New research on Vitafiber holds promise for Sports Nutrition.

A team of eleven researchers at a leading American university has concluded that a food bar containing whey protein and VitaFiberTM helps gym enthusiasts engaged in a range of high-performance workout exercises.

The study, which was published in a peer reviewed sports nutrition journal and listed on the National Institutes of Health clinical trial website, focused on nutritional sports bars – a major area of scientific and industry interest. The study’s purpose was to determine the glycemic and insulin reaction from eating the food bar compared to a standard dextrose preparation.

The researchers found there was some evidence that the food bar with VitaFiberTM may positively help maintain workout performance and lessen the perceptions of muscle soreness. The study also demonstrated that the food bar did not result in high variability in glucose and insulin levels, so athletes did not experience peaks and valleys. A common complaint with some energy products used by gym goers is they provide a rush and then a crash. Furthermore, it was found that the food bar provided an even level of energy.

What sets EpiCor® apart from other immune ingredients?

Unlike other immune ingredients that are concentrated extracts or chemically synthesized compounds, EpiCor® is a clinically researched fermentate that benefits the immune system in various ways.

New range of Garcinia Cambogia

Garcinia Cambogia (GC) is a small, pumpkin-shaped tropical fruit that grows in Southeast Asia and India. The key active ingredient found in the rind of Garcinia Cambogia is hydroxycitric acid (HCA). Many years of research suggests that this ingredient may help with weight management and despite the fact that it has been used for several years in food supplements, we can still see companies including this ingredient in new product developments. Garcinia is a well-positioned ingredient and to our knowledge will continue in the market for a while.

New range of Plant Based Vitamins & Minerals

In Nature, vitamins and minerals don’t exist in isolation. They exist as foods. Fruits, vegetables, and botanicals deliver their nutrients in complex “packages” that are then metabolised by our body. Vitamins and minerals found in foods come with their own enzymes, proteins, fats, carbohydrates, phytonutrients, and other natural co-factors that can help the body to absorb and use them effectively.

Our new natural and organic certified vitamins and minerals are not single chemical entities. We offer vitamins and minerals as “whole-food complexes”, with all their nutrient co-factors: just as they exist in Nature. They are ingredients with minimal processing carried out, therefore preserving their original vitamin and mineral profiles: the way the body likes them.
