DID YOU KNOW that B-vitamins play a role in preventing osteoporosis? Moreover, genetic polymorphisms (defects) affecting absorption of B-vitamins is critical to know at an early age when bone density formation is most important. A new study from The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition confirms that genetic polymorphisms of the absorption gateways for vitamins B-12, B-6, and folate may adversely affect bone density if not addressed. How do you remedy this issue?
You must perform a genetic screening, such as our Pure Genomics screening. All genes cited in this study are screened for in our panel. Doing this at an early age is best, but is still very helpful for all age groups.
If there are one or multiple polymorphisms of B-12, B-6, and folate genes, there are supplemental sources that circumvent genetic defects to assure absorption.
To track how you are absorbing these B-vitamins throughout life, two serum tests should be performed whenever you get a physical: homocysteine and methylmalonic acid.

UPDATE - COVID-19 Vaccine Information We updated this document Monday, September 13th.
Virus Prevention And Treatment Vaccines will minimize COVID-19 related mortality and hospitalizations, but SARS-CoV-2 is not going away, as evidenced by its ever-mutating variants. Moreover, SARS-CoV-2 is not the only virus we fight. There are influenza (flu), norovirus (stomach flu), adenovirus (common cold), and four other coronaviruses (common cold), among others.We highly recommend continuing your immune support. For more information, refer to our Prevent and Fight Viruses 2.0 Protocol.
