Summary:

Orthoplex B Vital has a broad range of nutrients. It may assist with vitamin and mineral deficiencies, fatigue and lack of stamina, irregular blood sugar levels, oxidative damage and stress.

Stress
B Vital contains key nutrients such as tyrosine, carnitine, taurine and B vitamins which support cellular response to stress. Vitamins contained within support normal nervous system function, in turn promoting relaxation and energy production in stressed or fatigued individuals.

Tyrosine assists physiologically by building store's of adrenaline within the body. Chronic stress increases the body's need for tyrosine, often resulting in an extreme reduction of brain tyrosine levels.

Oxidative damage
Alpha lipoic acid is the only antioxidant soluble in both water and fat, so it is easily available to all areas of the body. It helps quench free radical damage caused by sugars, and it's by the mitochondria to help transform glucose into energy. Orally, alpha lipoic acid has been shown to increase glutathione levels. It is an important cellular antioxidant, and essential for optimum immune system function.

Blood sugar irregularities
Glucose intolerance is one of the signs of chromium deficiency and Chromium supplementation may improve glucose uptake in insulin sensitive tissues.

 

Dosage:

1 level 5 mL metric spoonful in water once daily after meals, or as prescribed.

 

Precautions:

Potassium should be given with caution in patients taking ACE inhibitor, beta adrenergic blockers as increased blood levels of potassium may result. Take two hours away from antiobiotic medications - minerals such as calcium, zinc, magnesium and manganese may reduce absorption of antibiotics.

Be cautious of high doses of vitamin B3 in gout - may lead to increased uric acid.

Customer questions / expert answers

Q. I found I don’t really like the taste of Orthoplex B Vital powder so I am wanting to try Metagenics Meta B instead. Would I need to continue taking Iron as I have noticed Meta B includes some Iron.

I’m also not sure if I want to continue taking the Energy X Powder and am wondering if I should just continue with the Mitolift. I currently take two Mitolift tablets per day but have noted the label on the bottle states to take one after every meal. Does this mean I can take three per day?
A. 

Metagenics Meta B Complex only contains 50 mg of iron - not a very high dose, as it is a Multi B. To take the B vital powder I suggest mixing it with a dissolvable Vit C powder to improve the taste, or mix in a apple/pear juice and water mix.

Q. Just wanting some advice please. Currently taking: MitoLift, NeuroLift, PreACh, PreGABA, Zinc, Iron for depression, anxiety and fatigue, also brain fog.

Recently prescribed / started: Metagenics EnergyX & Orthoplex B Vital. When I start to take these two new supplements, I'm going to stop taking the MitoLift, PreACh and NeuroLift - or can NeuroLift still be taken with the two above products?

Can the PreGABA, Zinc and Iron also be taken without any adverse interactions?
A. 

On EnergyX and B Vital you won't need the single Zinc. Take these powders together in the morning - don't take too late at night, as they will keep you awake. Keep on the PreGABA and Iron. Drop the Mitolift and PreACh as it's covered in the others. Keep on the NeuroLift - its an excellent herbal formula for nervous system support.
