We do need vitamins – vital amines …

Vital to life – we can not make these and have to eat/ingest substances either with these in them, or have co-factors that allow us to digest them. Told that you have MTHFR? Trouble conceiving?

We need to take in all the B’s together ..

I have popped this all here  will maybe tidy it up – do your own research – this is the start.

Know yourself – seems this is an under utilised group of life enhancers  .
See yourself – I did . .
Especially – hidden away I found.
Medically, vitamin B-16 is not a true vitamin because a lack of B-16 does not lead to any ill effects in your body.
Not that we need fluoride . . . Here is the nervous system tutorial:
Assume the gut needs help – hence I say – eat liver/pate – stop being vegan (I was ) and look after the gut – Liver Qi upset?
Take out the cold – so the temperature of the oven is appropriate and get the Yang Qi put back in . .
Can’t make good Blood energy without this.
Hence we moxa sacral fan . .
Seems that this is all we need – yes – is why the Challenge starts with Foundational Moves – and get the waste system working – breathing and lymph.
Life is tricky when we are not paying attention – and taking supplements is not the way forwards – untangling the knot that is us is . .
All Dr Osborne’s work
The best Vitamin B tablets before – and supplements are no longer available-  put out by a special naturopath in the late 1970’s.
Before Metagenics – her stuff was full of what worked.
Inositol, choline, and methionine.
B vitamins were in liver extract . .
NO that is NO yellow/fluro pee after taking them – they were totally absorbed.
Shame is that no one is doing what she did.
I found the product manual in my recent clinic clean up.
It could be anywhere now – packed away.
She sold up after the TGA B.S. in the early 2000’s as she had had enough – was at least 15 years older than me ..
B1Thiamin – beriberi . .heart and nervous tissue – wet and dry beriberi . . 1943 – process grains = you take away B1 . .
Look at grain based products – all hae to be added in.
Deficiency – if a gut issue (SLQR) – usual medical problem – stress related.  .acetyl choline again . .(See Vit B5 ) brain fog, memory gone, can’t concentrate – and depression. Maybe look like a seizure disorder – and all neurological problems. If depleted- will get more issues – energy inside muscle tissue – leads to muscle pain and fatigue – adn damage in the heart – get a heart condition – congestive heart failure – (I had it for decades ) – many causes – mercury and no magnesium getting in.

B4 (Adenine): Known also as adenine, vitamin B4 is a water soluble and infamous vitamin. It is a component of DNA, RNA, ATP, and the three coenzymes NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide), NADH (a reduced form of NAD) and FAD (flavin adenine dinucleotide).
(Not usually mentioned)

Vitamin B4 is a former designation given to several distinct chemical compounds, none of which is currently considered a true vitamin:

B5 – Pantothenic acid
anti greying – helps the immune system – antibodies IGG, IGA, IGE etc To make acetylcholine – nervous system to communicate with organs/muscles . . Choline deficiency – neuropathy – burning feet – like on fire . . (after chemo). headaches, gastro intestinal pain – and inability to not digest food. Where from? panto – everywhere. . when chronically stressed
Lose ability to cope and adapt to/with stress.
Meat, fish, eg products . .

B6 – pyridoxine, is a water-soluble vitamin that your body needs for several functions. It’s significant to protein, fat and carbohydrate metabolism and the creation of red blood cells and neurotransmitters

B7 – Biotin is a vital part of a healthy metabolism and creating important enzymes. Biotin is often used to strengthen hair and nails, and is also called Vitamin H (for hair).


B8Inositol is often referred to as vitamin B8, but it is not actually a vitamin. It’s a type of sugar that influences the insulin response and several hormones associated with mood and cognition. (PMS/PMDD)

B10 – para amino benzoic acid – PABA Formerly known as vitamin R, vitamin B10 is best known for helping in the growth of microorganisms in the body. Per, it also guards our skin from free radicals contained in the harmful chemicals found in air pollution and the sun’s ultraviolet rays that can potentially render our skin vulnerable to infections. This explains why PABA can be found as an ingredient in some sunscreen lotions.Vitamin B10’s role in the growth of microorganisms explains why, as a supplement, it can help heal irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and gastrointestinal distress, as well as a variety of inflammatory reactions. As a coenzyme, B10 also assists our cells in their optimal utilization of protein as well as protein metabolism and red blood cell formation. Other reported health benefits of B10 include acting as an anti-allergen for the skin, alleviating rheumatic fever, and as an anti-aging agent working to eliminate lines, wrinkles, and dark spots.


Food sources: Green leafy vegetables, whole grains, molasses, mushrooms, wheat germ, and eggs.

B11 – Salicylic acid – What’s known as an important “beta hydroxy” vitamin, salicylic acid also is a crystalline and organic acid obtained from the metabolism of salicin, per It also can be found in some plants, contributing to their growth and development while being involved in several other functions to include photosynthesis, ion uptake, and transpiration. Within our bodies, it is synthesized by the amino acid phenylalanine.

Vitamin B11 often works in tandem with B12 to contribute to the formation of DNA and RNA. It also is essential to the formation and growth of body tissues as well as the fetus’s brains and spinal cord during embryogenesis. Its other functions include being an element with red blood bodies and blood plasma, being used as an ingredient in some anti-acne creams, and benefiting in the treatment of foot related issues like psoriasis, corns, calluses, and numerous other skin afflictions.

Vitamin B11 is essential for production of new cells and important for the metabolism of homocysteine, which is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease and possibly neurodegeneration. (Huntington’s)

Vitamin B11 (Pteryl-hepta-glutamic acid) is a form of Vitamin B9 (Folic acid), one of five folates necessary for humans, and now known as ‘chick growth factor. Vitamin B11, also called salicylic acid, comes from vitamin B9. It is an essential folate the body needs to work properly. Not a lot of information is available on this B-vitamin. We do know that it is involved with metabolizing fats and proteins. It is also important for the production of red blood cells. Vitamin B11 Deficiency Symptoms:

  • Weight loss
  • Diarrhea
  • Lower Immunity
  • Some types of cardiac conditions
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Growth Retardation
  • Tiredness and fatigue
  • Also seen feathering in chicks
  • Sudden weight loss
  • Anaemia
  • Loss of appetite
  • Fatigue
  • Impaired growth in children

Food Source of Vitamin B11Vitamin B11 is present in both animal and plant kingdom.

  • Animal sources: The sources from animal kingdom egg yolk, meat, liver, and poultry
  • Plant sources: The sources from plants are oranges, potatoes, as well as green leafy vegetables such as spinach etc.
  • green leafy vegetables
  • whole grains
  • molasses
  • eggs
  • yogurt
  • wheat germ

Health Benefit of Vitamin B11This vitamin has been linked to various other benefits as well

  • Involved in the creation of DNA and RNA
  • Increases production of breast milk
  • Helps increase desire to eat for those with a loss of appetite
  • Acts as a pain killer
  • Boosts immunity in children
  • Aids in the fight against cancer
  • While browsing skin lotions, you may notice certain brands advertise that they have salicylic as an ingredient, this is vitamin B11, which helps to exfoliate and remove excess skin.
  • Another way vitamin B11 helps keep your skin healthy is by preventing acne. When used as a lotion, salicylic acid makes its way deep into your pores to clean out any clogged dirt and debris. Furthermore, this vitamin helps improve blood flow which helps clear pimples more quickly.
  • Vitamin B11 in accompany with vitamin B12 take part in the formation of RNA and DNA,
  • It is also necessary for the growth and in the formation of tissues of the body.
  • Vitamin B11 is extremely essential and plays role in the formation of brains and the spinal cord in the fetus during embryogenesis.
  • DNA and RNA syntheses
  • Cell division
  • Development of the fetus nervous system
  • This vitamin is also an important element of the red blood bodies and blood plasma.
  • Salicylic acid is used in the manufactures of certain creams for treating acne. It acts to correct the faulty desquamation function of the skin causing new growth off skin earlier while sloughing off the dead skin. It is found to penetrate the follicles, therefore, it is good and beneficial in the treatment of acne.
  • Salicylic acid is also beneficial in the treatment of psoriasis, corns, dandruff, calluses, warts, and many more skin diseases

Food sources: Egg yolk, liver, meat and poultry, organs, potatoes, and green leafy vegetables such as spinach

B12 – Cobalamin – done already on the sleeping page. . Degradation of the brain and spinal cord – hence with all M.S. and spinal injuries – add in more (and fat and Vit D3 and mag). ‘Shorts’ in the wires . . .numbness and tingling . .. feet and toes – maybe fingers.

MUST WATCH – real people with horrifying no one knew complications – may well be you on this trajectory.

B13 – orotic acid

Orotic acid is an intermediate in the metabolism of pyrimidine and 

urea cycle. Some research scientists have named orotic acid as vitamin B13. However, there is still a debate whether it is really a vitamin. It may help with the metabolism of vitamins B9 and B12.

In urea cycle disorder, carbamoyl phosphate and ornithine increase in the blood due to failing to convert into citrulline because of the deficiency of the enzymornithine transcarbamylase (OTC). Then excess carbamoyl phosphate converts into orotic acid. Functions of Orotic Acid:

  1. It assists the metabolism of vitamins B9 and B12.
  2. It may help with the absorption of calcium and magnesium.
  3. It is required for the production of DNA and RNA.
  4. It supports and maintains ATP production.
  5. It is necessary for normal function of the heart.

Food Sources and Absorption:Food sources of orotic acid are dairy products, organ meats such as liver and heart, whey, brewer`s yeast, carrots, parsnips, beetroot, artichoke, and turnips. Small amounts are produced in the body by intestinal bacteria. Dietary orotic acid is absorbed from the upper part of the small intestine into the blood stream. Athletic Benefits of Orotic Acid:

  1. It maintains ATP pool in the body by providing ribose.
  2. It may enhance the uptake of glucose and the restoration of glycogen stores.
  3. It may increase the uptake of creatine by the muscles.
  4. It converts into beta – alanine, which is the precursor of carnosine and anserine. They are potent “proton buffering agents” and delay fatigue and improve endurance in athletes by preventing from lactic acid build up. See “Carnosine” under the section of “Antioxidants”.
  5. It may augment muscle mass.
  6. It may aid recovery from overtraining syndrome.

Non – Athletic Benefits of Orotic Acid: The following conditions may benefit from orotic acid:

  1. Post myocardial infarction.
  2. Multiple sclerosis.
  3. Chronic hepatitis.
  4. Premature aging.
  5. Eczema.
  6. Dermatitis.
  7. Psoriasis.

B14 – Pteridines  is thought to be a combination of Vitamin B10 and Vitamin B11. Pteridines It has not been isolated to a specific substance. Currently, very little is known about Vitamin B14. It was isolated from wine and originally thought to be a metabolite of xanthopterin. However, biochemist Earl R. Norris disputed that xanthopterin was actually Vitamin is currently little knowledge about this vitamin B14. It was first isolated from wine. This vitamin is actually found to be a metabolite of xanthopterin. However, it was said by a biochemist Earl R. Norris xanthopterin was the Vitamin B14. It is thought to be similar to vitamin 10 and vitamin 11.

Deficiency Symptoms of Vitamin B14

  • Deterioration of red blood cells
  • Pernicious anemia
  • Accelerated production of cancer cells
  • This is an important vitamin for the body and its deficiency may lead to the destruction of red blood cells, anemia, usually pernicious anemia as well as increasing growth of cancerous cells in the body.

Food Sources of Vitamin B14 Plant Sources: These include legumes, wine organ, grains, and yeast etc. Animal Sources: These include meat, liver, kidney, heart, and eggs etc Health Benefit of Vitamin B14 – Possible functions of Vitamin B14:

B15 – Pangamic acid is the name given to a product originally claimed to contain D-gluconodimethyl aminoacetic acid, which was obtained from apricot kernels and later from rice bran. It is also referred to as vitamin B15, but pangamic acid is not generally recognized as a vitamin.

B16 – DMG ..dimethyl glycine
Vitamin B-16, also known as dimethylglycine, N,N-Dimethylglycine, dimethylamino acetic acid, N-methylsarcosine or DMG, is more of a dietary supplement than a vitamin. Vitamin B-16 is a derivative of the amino acid glycine. Medically, vitamin B-16 is not a true vitamin because a lack of B-16 does not lead to any ill effects in your body. Manufacturers of vitamin B-16, however, claim that it can improve athletic performance, stimulate your immune system and help treat autism, epilepsy and mitochondrial disease. You should not use or take vitamin B-16 to treat a specific medical condition without consulting with a medical professional.

B17 – LaetrileAmygdalin – found in apricot kernels . .
Pain (ANYWHERE) and anxiety and depression and neuropathies – not enough of the nutrients.
Oh that the Flexnor Report did not happen . .
What a wonderful world it would be – if all had the nutrients needed to Live Well.

B1 – Watch here

B 5 pantothenic acid

MTHFR and folicinic acid . .

It may well be that seeing a good naturopath not a doctor who is trained in drug therapy will mean that your entire body – not just the bits that bother you – will be scrutinized and restored holistically.

Who is at risk of B12 deficiency?


The most frequent cause of B12 deficiency is malabsorption, which may be caused by low stomach acid, a lack of intrinsic factor and/or suboptimal pancreatic, small intestinal or liver function. Those most at risk include:

  • Those who have adopted a vegetarian, vegan or macrobiotic lifestyle
  • The elderly and people with eating disorders, such as anorexia nervosa or bulimia
  • Those taking certain medications, including laxatives, antacids and metformin, or those who have been exposed to nitrous oxide (oxidises B12 – can’t use it in the body – acute neurologic dysfunction – for all those who react with paralysis with GA)
  • Pregnant and nursing mothers
  • The offspring of those already deficient
  • Heavy drinkers and smokers
  • Those with high homocysteine
  • Those with gastrotintestinal disorders, including autism, or those who have had gastric surgery
  • Those taking high doses of folic acid
  • Those with autoimmune disorders


How do we get B12? Unfortunately for all vegetarians – from meat.

Perhaps watch here then go onto the nearly one hour clip to really see how widespread and how dangerous it is to NOT pay attention to this and other vital ingredients of life.

And again here

These are diffuse and generalised – and not often looked into – as no drug is needed.

1- Burning / numbness tingling in feet and hands . . neuropathy  .and is NOT normal.

2 – Smooth slightly swollen tongue, – Should not be glossy. Or too big for your mouth – not only Iodine/Yang Qi depletion . .

3 – Fatigue . .so general . .

4 – Slow thinking – is NOT aging – is malnutrition

5 – Problems with balance and gait.– again – not aging . .malnutrition

6 – Irritability – not only magnesium depletion

7 – Tinnitus – ringing in ears – not proper nerve function

8 – Depression – is likely to be lack of nutrients

AND then there is here

Symptoms – even more here .ABSORPTION

Gluten damaged intestinal lining – and B vitamins no longer synthesized there.

Just to get a better sleep alone would be handy ..

ANSWER – ask grandma – eat liver . . . (serious)

‘BUT I am vegan . .’ /or vegetarian ..

OK – please watch this and follow a different Heather

Need to see food and the gut function as the most important aspect of living . .
We will cover digestion another day.
