B-Right 100 capsules - all B-vitamins (e.g. pantethine, P5P, 5MTHF and methyl-B12) | Jarrow Formulas
Jarrow Formulas B-RIGHT should be used as a dietary supplement to meet requirements in the case of fatigue, deficiency of B-vitamins or in case of a high protein consumption ( > 0.8 g per kg bodymass).
B-RIGHT is a carefully balanced B complex formula
It has been adjusted precisely to the male or female with a vitamin B-deficiency, whether or not this is due to a less healthy lifestyle, prolonged periods of stress, a malfunctioning digestive system or practicing a demanding sport.
Thinking 'more is better' , we have seen mega dosing. However, from scientific literature it has been derived that using adequate doses of better absorbed vitamins works better. This is how B-Right was formulated: a smart B-complex with the right ingredients or materials in just 1 capsule.
B-RIGHT contains choline bitartrate, choline is an important compound for our brains & liver. However, because it smells rather fishy, B-complexes generally don't contain much of it. Jarrow Formulas solved this problem in an elegant way by micro-encapsulating choline in cellulose beadlets.
Methylcobalamine is not just 'a' kind of B12, but it is the best absorbable type of B12, that will help B12-values to healthy levels. Due to the methylation, it is very suitable for a healthy nerve system.
Methyl folate ((6S)-5-methyl tetrahydrofolate or 5-MTHF) is the most biologically active form of folic acid. QUATREFOLIC® is the 4th generation development in folate delivery.
Pantethine is a derivative of Vitamin B5 and is a precursor to Coenzyme A (CoA), which is influential in the cholesterol metabolism in our body. Moreso than ordinary vitamin B5 , which only plays a minor role.
Pyridoxal 5-Phosphate (P-5-P) is a derivate of vitamin B6 and is often not absorbed in adequate amounts by people with a poor digestive system or without enough healthy gut bacteria.
Precisely vitamin B6 is essential for digesting protein for a healthy immune system and building adequate amounts of lean muscle mass by strength athletes.
• best balanced vitamin B complex
The water-soluble B vitamins are collectively referred to as “B-Complex.” Each of the B vitamins has their own critical functions in the body, but many people have deficiencies in one or multiple B vitamins without even knowing it. This becomes of particular concern as we age. For instance, it is estimated that vitamin B12 deficiency affects up to 10–15% of the population over 60 years of age, usually due to inadequate dietary intake or impaired absorption. The use of the entire B-Complex is recommended since the individual B vitamins affect one another’s absorption, metabolism, and excretion.
B-complex and energy
Some of the B vitamins are facilitators of the energy-releasing reactions that occur in the mitochondria; others help build new cells to deliver the oxygen and nutrients that permit the energy pathways to run. Exercise stresses metabolic pathways that depend on vitamin B1 (thiamine), vitamin B2 (riboflavin), and vitamin B6 (pyridoxine).
Consequently, the requirements for these vitamins may be increased in athletes and active individuals.
Other research suggests that exercise may increase the requirements for riboflavin and B6, and possibly for vitamin B9 (folic acid) and vitamin B12 (cobalamins). Deficiencies in some of these vitamins have been reported in active individuals, including riboflavin and B6. Thus, active individuals who restrict their energy intake or make poor dietary choices are at greatest risk for poor B vitamin status, and should consider supplementing with B-Complex vitamins.
B-complex and stress
The B-complex vitamins are also intimately involved in the function of the nervous system, and play a role in helping to counter some of the negative effects of stress.
More specifically, thiamine (B1) has been found to reduce the effects of catabolic (i.e., breaking down tissues) stress hormones which result from surgery.
Thiamine also protected the adrenal glands (the “stress glands”) from functional exhaustion.
Vitamin B5 (as calcium D-pantothenate) is intimately involved in adrenal function and the production of adrenal hormones associated with stress.
Vitamin B3 (niacin) has been found to reduce certain neurological damage caused by oxidative stress and to promote heart health in times of emotional/painful stress.
B6 deficiency has been found to be correlated with increased psychological distress in recently bereaved men; and supplementation with B6 is suggested as part of an overall program for managing stress.
Vitamin B12 deficiency can lead to fatigue and degeneration of peripheral nerves.
Other B-vitamin benefits
A substantial body of scientific evidence suggests that generous intakes of folic acid, vitamin B6 and B12 may help improve cardiovascular health.
In addition, folic acid has been shown to play a critical role in protecting against some serious birth defects, including neural tube defects, when taken by women of childbearing age both before and during pregnancy.
Biotin (B7) containing enzymes are involved in gluconeogenesis, fatty acid synthesis, and amino acid metabolism.
In addition, choline, and inositol are compounds which are not technically B vitamins but which have related functions. Choline is a precursor to the neurotransmitter, acetylcholine. It is also a lipotropic factor in lecithin that may help to emulsify fats.
Inositol has mild lipotropic activity, and is sometimes used to help promote a sense of calm.
What is special about B-Right?
Methylcobalamin is used rather than cyanocobalamin, a common form of vitamin B12 often found in B-Complex vitamins. While cyanocobalamin and methylcobalamin show similar absorption profiles following oral administration, significantly more vitamin B12 accumulates in liver tissue with methylcobalamin.
Furthermore, human urinary excretion of methylcobalamin is about one-third that of a similar dose of cyanocobalamin, indicating substantially greater tissue retention.
In addition, B-Right provides pantethine, a derivative of vitamin B5 and a precursor to coenzyme A (CoA). It also contains pyridoxal 5-phosphate, the coenzyme form of vitamin B6. The forms of B vitamins in B-Right have the potential to enter our tissues and get to work immediately, rather than having to be converted first.
B-Right is a carefully balanced B-Complex formula. It is low-odor because the choline bitartrate is microencapsulated in cellulose beadlets. B-Right is the pleasant-to-take B-Complex.
Some supplements are suitable for both men and women of all ages as well as children. But other supplements are specifically targeted to the aging woman or man. Another supplement is especially suitable for athletes, regardless of gender.

How to reduce stress with ASMROur brain is programmed to stress us. It does that a lot and on just about any subject. Like a lot of behavioral reactions, stress used to be and still is a survival mechanism that our brain used in order to inject alertness when needed. It’s there so we could harness internal resources and spring into action in a matter of seconds when hunted or hunting.
Fortunately for us, we rarely need to spring into action nowadays to avoid a prowling lion. Today, stress is not helpful and is often counter-productive. When stressed, most of us lose focus and are immersed in unpleasant feelings.
In the past, we needed all that “potential energy” when we faced fight or flight situations. It probably saved our lives more than once. Today, this energy still exists in each of us in certain situations; if it is not discharged via some sort of conduit (either physical or of a more neural nature), it slows us down.
That’s why we need to get creative in the way we release stress. We don’t have time to go on a vacation every week; often we even can’t step away from the almighty computer, tablet, or cell phone.
Pigmentation spots : why do we get them when we age?Do you sometimes look down onto your arms and notice they are covered with white spots that resemble freckles in reverse?
Especially when arms get tanned in summer, these white spots tend to stand out more than ever.
This led me to the idea to look up what can be a cause of this weird pigmentation.
Mine turns out to be one called idiopathic guttate hypomelanosis (IGH), in other words, an unexplained teardrop-shaped lack of pigmentation, which is apparently very common among most people of over 40 years , but may also happen at a younger age. These white spots appear on the shins, legs, arms, and other sun-exposed areas of the body like the face, neck, and shoulders.
Apparently the body experiences a gradual reduction of melanoyctes and skin cells no longer produce pigment, a similar process that causes the graying of hair. The condition is also increasingly being seen in both sexes and darker skinned individuals with a history of long-term sun exposure, which has lead scientists to believe that excessive sun exposure and sun damage is another cause of these white spots.
They are generally 1 to 3 mm in size and commonly show up on the legs before progressing to other parts of the body.
These white spots are not caused by trauma or infection, nor do they indicate an increased risk of skin cancer.
Hereditary factors may be involved because this skin problem seems to run in families.
IGH is not related to vitiligo, in which melanin-producing cells called melanocytes die or are unable to function properly and no longer form melanin.
Other common causes of skin discolorations are
What determines attractiveness?
It is generally accepted as common knowledge how women will feel more sexually attracted to masculin men, but will take far more factors into account when they select future spouses, for which they prefer reliable men who will help raise her offspring.
Another assumption is how women will feel most attracted to masculin-looking men at the most fertile phase of their cycle.
In a recent study where women were shown masculinized and feminized faces of the same men, it was concluded that apparently there is no distinct phase in a women's cycle when they feel less or more attracted, but a bigger influence was whether or not they were in a phase of their life in which they desired to have kids.
When hearing about this study, I immediately wondered why they didn't mention attractiveness of body odour?
Would masculin men not also smell differently from feminine men? In a similar vein, they could have modulated a man's own smell by adding perfume that is perceived as masculin or feminine.
Whomever has followed threads on any perfume forum or has watched popular perfume reviews on Youtube will know that one of the most often asked questions by young and inexperienced men is, "what fragrance is a 'panty dropper'?" In other words, will this fragrance make me so irresistible that women will want to have sex with me?"
Timing of supplementsWe frequently receive the question whether it really matters when to use a particular supplement.
Most supplements come with instructions to ingest them with a meal. This is in the assumption that meal contain fat, as fat will aid with absorption through the gut wall. Whether or not this can be your first meal of the day, depends on how much fat it contains. Especially fat-soluble vitamins, such as A,D, E and K need fat for proper absorption.
A work-around is to ingest them together with a larger amount of fish or krill oil softgels if your first meal doesn't contain enough fat.
Another reason take supplements with a meal, is that taking it by itself, can cause nausea or discomfort.
Why you should combine B12 with BiofolateJarrow Formulas Methyl-B12, Methylfolate Plus Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate (P5P) Lozenge combines the active forms of these vitamins to support DNA and neurotransmitter synthesis and amino acid metabolism. Homocysteine is converted to methionine by methylfolate and B12, or converted to cysteine by P5P-dependent enzymes. P5P is the biologically active form of vitamin B6.
Stronger with folic acidFor a very long time already, women that want to get pregnant, are advised to start taking folic acid or biofolate (the preferred form). Like-wise, seniors have started to take it as well, especially in combination with vitamin B12 in order to reduce homocystein levels.
In a new study it was concluded, folates give seniors stronger muscles too!
Homocysteine: the real culpritFor the longest time we have been led to believe having a high cholesterol diet is dangerous for our health. This assumption was based on research done by Ancel Keys, who compared diets in seven hand-picked countries and concluded a diet low in animal fats (and cholesterol) was best for cardiovascular health.
This assumption started the war on saturated fats and cholesterol in the mid-1950s Soon doctors around the world were promoting a low fat, low cholesterol diet.
For the next three decades, millions of people gave up butter for margarine, drank low fat milk and diminished their egg intake.
How to repel mosquitoesRarely have people been so upset about mosquitoes as in this past week: a plague of mosquitoes seems to have arrived in the Netherlands and most surrounding countries.
The reason it is possible to have so many blood thirsty mosquitoes swarm around us, is that mosquito eggs incubate in water puddles as small as a rain gutter, cavities on flat roofs, empty plant pots or pet bowls.
In 14 days or less when it is very warm, larvae become fully grown adults, of which the females start searching for blood. The combination of a semi-monsoon in June and sudden tropical heat in July caused a mosquito 'babyboom'.
