Vitamin B’s: Provides
all of the B-complex vitamins critical for a healthy metabolism, energy
production, immune function, cardiovascular and neurological function. B
vitamins are important for making sure the body's cells are functioning
properly. They help the body convert food into energy (metabolism), create new
blood cells, and maintain healthy skin cells, brain cells, and other body

Do we really need to take vitamins? This is the single most asked question we get daily.
Answer: From Bruce Brightman, Founder of LifeSource Vitamins: The answer is YES! Without a doubt. Let me ask you a question. How is it that every form of cancer known worldwide is higher than ever in the United States, yet we have more prescription medications than ever, which are a whole other story? Our food is the main reason. Here are some serious reasons why. First off, our soils have been farmed so much the soil has lost the majority of the nutritional value that is needed for our vegetables to be beneficial for us. Lastly, they add pesticides and other chemicals, add all of this together, and then we really have problems. So the same tomato we are eating today is not nearly as nutritious as that same tomato from 10 years ago. Now we move on to our beef and pork. They are filling our livestock full of growth hormones to help them grow bigger, faster. Faster to market, so to speak. Then you add the feed that they are feeding our livestock is not nearly as nutritious due to our soils being depleted, so they are not as healthy. They are minimizing the growth time for these animals drastically, it is not healthy for them and it surely is not healthy for humans.
With our poultry, this is really scary; they have cut in half the growth time of these animals with chemicals. This is really a huge issue for the US. Another huge concern is their living conditions being so sub-standard. Not healthy for the poultry, and again, not healthy for us to consume. Lastly our fish. We can sum this up with one word; pollution. Our waters are terribly polluted. We have unbelievably high amounts of mercury, which are found in numerous fish that we eat every day. Our pollution governmental regulations in the US are getting better, but not practiced around the world. This is a worldwide problem, not just in the US. Now we see that we have fish farms, they seem to be great right, well maybe not. They have thousands of fish in small areas in numerous cases. Too many fish in a small confined area is not healthy. Also, with these farm-raised fish, they are not finding Omega 3's in these fish, which is perplexing. Again, this emphasizes the importance of an Omega 3 supplement.
All the above being said this is exactly why you need to consider certain supplements. The multivitamin would be the most important supplement. But not just any supplements. They cannot be synthetic, which is what you will find at mass retailers. When it costs more to produce a simple gumball than it does for your vitamin for the day from these mass retailers, then there may be a problem. How do they do this; inexpensive and non-effective ingredients. They also use heat processing, which heat kills most nutrients and makes them virtually ineffective. This is where the bad publicity comes from with regard to supplements and how they go right through you. Whole food multivitamins are the only way for them to reach your bloodstream, which is essentially is how they become effective.
By now you are probably wondering what is left to eat? Well, there are still some great choices out there. There is a plethora of organic stores out there that have great beef, poultry, pork, and fish. You pay a little more, but your health is certainly worth it.

A Daily Multivitamin Supplement can Boost Brain Function, UK Researchers Say: by Owen Fertel
Did you know that a simple multivitamin supplement, taken daily, can boost your brain’s ability to function? That’s exactly what teams of British neuroscientists are saying in a new series of studies published in the British Journal of Nutrition, Psychopharmacology, and Human Psychopharmacology. Their main focus in these studies was to investigate what effects multivitamin supplements have on mood and brain function. Here’s what they found.
After monitoring the mood and brain function of several groups of healthy men, women, and children who had taken store-bought vitamin supplements for a 4-12 week period, the researchers found that the vitamin supplements boosted their brain functioning after just a few weeks of taking their vitamins. All groups – men, women, and children – had more mental energy, alertness, and accuracy in the challenges given them. Taking large doses of B-complex vitamins increased these effects, particularly in men. Supplementing subjects with Omega 3s in 1-2g amounts, while not directly affecting their brain function, did increase cerebral blood flow while they were participating in cognitive tests. Professor David Kennedy of the Brain, Performance, and Nutrition Research Center at Northumbria University and one of the co-authors of the study, said that this suggests dietary DHA (an Omega 3 fat) influences brain function in physiological terms.* This fact has big implications for aging healthily, as well as for dementia.
These effects are the result of subjects having Optimal levels of the vitamins in their systems. Optimal, Dr. Kennedy goes on to say, is way above the level required to avoid deficiency and disease. Think of it in terms of grades – If you’ve gotten to required levels of a vitamin, you are getting C’s. You pass, but no one gives you an award. If you’ve reached optimal levels, then you are getting an A. To get you’re A’s, Dr. Kennedy recommends a multivitamin, as many people are deficient in several vitamin groups. A good multivitamin should cover your bases and patch up whatever you may be deficient in.
