A vegan diet has many health benefits, including boosting natural immunity and supporting a healthy cardiovascular system, due to generally lower cholesterol levels and body weight. However, poorly planned vegan or vegetarian diets can be low in some vital nutrients, such as vitamin B12 and iron. Vegaplex is an all natural, vegan source of vitamin B12 and iron in a vegetable gelatin capsule to support your vegetarian diet.
How Vegaplex Works
Vegaplex contains iron from Agaricus blazei murill (ABM) and Grifola frondosa (maitake) mushrooms, both of which are high in iron. It also contains supplemental vitamin B12. Bacteria produce B12, and it moves up the food chain as animals eat other animals, which is how non-vegetarians ingest B12. In the past, strict vegans were able to ingest B12 from plant foods because some bacteria from the soil in which the plants grew would remain on the plants. In addition, storage conditions allowed insects to leave behind traces of B12 on food stores. Today’s modern methods of growing, cleaning and storing foods leaves very little, if any, B12 on plant foods, and vegetarians are at a greater risk of B12 deficiencies.
Acerola cherries and blueberries are included in Vegaplex because of their high antioxidant content. Antioxidants enhance the body’s ability to absorption vitamin B12 and iron.
Nutritional Immunology Formulation
The science of Nutritional Immunology tells us that the body requires antioxidants, phytochemicals and polysaccharides to maintain a vigilant immune system and meet the requirements of optimum health. Not only do the mushrooms in Vegaplex contain iron, they also contain a wide variety of different polysaccharides, serving two purposes at once by providing both the iron and the polysaccharides that your body needs.
In conjunction with these, the addition of acerola cherry and blueberry, with their high antioxidant and phytochemical content, allows for better absorption of the iron from the mushroom.
E. EXCEL adds vitamin B12 to Vegaplex only because vegans and vegetarians need a safe supply of B12 in their diet. We never add other vitamins and minerals to any of our products because they are best obtained naturally through the plant foods we eat.
