Meet MegaFoods NEW Products

Filed under:Diet,Family — Tags: — BethInman —

Megafood, one of the top whole-food nutritional companies in the US, has just released 5 new innovative products!

Meet the Bs! Be Bold. Be Boundless. B Vitamins.

Overflowing with farm fresh foods like beets and broccoli, Megafood’s new line of methylated B vitamins promote energy and focus so you can paddle your way through just about anything! Both of these new formulations contain methylated forms of Folate and B12, as well as the active form of Vitamin B6.

Why Does Methylation Matter?

With so many points to consider when supplementing the diet, you may be ready to throw your hands up at the thought of yet another decision factor. Yet Methylation is a current hot topic in the world of health and wellness, and it’s an important one at that. So, if you’re wondering what methylated vitamins are all about, and what you need to know concerning your nutrition, you’ve come to the right place.

Let’s look at folate as an example. Many of us know about the importance of folate during pregnancy for the healthy growth and development of the baby. In adults, folate is also needed to produce healthy red blood cells, as well as to maintain healthy levels of a compound called homocysteine. * The active form of folate is the methylated form. This is the form that your body can actually utilize, and is officially referred to as 5-MTHF (5-Methyltetrahydrofolate, if you want to get really technical!).

…Because it’s widely understood that a certain percentage (possibly as high as 30%) of the population is unable to metabolize the unmethylated forms of specific B vitamins, namely Folate and Vitamin B12.* This is a big deal! Genetic testing has become increasingly more accessible to the public for identifying carriers of one (or both) of the genetic abnormalities, C677t and A1298c, that prevent the metabolism of unmethylated forms of B vitamins.* For that, it’s easy to see why an increasing number of consumers are now concerned with methylation.

Because the inability to methylate is such a widespread concern, MegaFood has recently developed two new products to support all individuals looking to supplement with B vitamins. These products are suitable for those that do have the gene abnormalities in question, as well as those who do not.

Methyl B12 is a convenient one-a-day, easy-to-swallow mini tablet designed to support energy production, health of brain cells & nerve tissues, and the formation of healthy blood cells, as well as support heart health by maintaining healthy levels of homocysteine. So much support in such a small tablet! Methyl B12 is also great for those following vegetarian or vegan lifestyles, who do not get B12 naturally in their diets.

Adult B-Centered boasts the active and methylated B vitamin forms, the botanicals are where it really shines. Bacopa supports cognitive function – including memory and learning capacity – as well as the body’s response to stress. L-Theanine, an amino acid most commonly found in green tea, is shown in studies to help promote a sense of relaxation while maintaining alertness. It also may help to encourage relaxation, focus and cognitive function. Lastly, Lemon Balm, commonly referred to as the “gladdening” herb due to it’s comforting properties, is traditionally used to soothe occasional restlessness.
