Sally-T Vitamin B12 + Folic Acid [120 Caps]
General Health, Prevention of Pernicious Anaemia
Vitamin b-12 (also known as cyanocobalamin) should be plentiful in most of our diets but the body’s ability to utilize it is often impaired, especially as we age. 20% of elderly people are thought to be deficient in vitamin b-12 even if many of them have no overt symptoms.
Supplements are therefore often recommended with advancing age. Pernicious anaemia, affecting older adults in particular, can be a fatal unless cured by Vitamin B-12. Vitamin B-12 is the only B vitamin that the body stores in large amounts, mostly in the liver. It is usually taken in conjunction with folic acid. Vitamin B-12 is essential for cell replication and is particularly important for red blood cell production. It helps maintain the protective sheath around nerves (myelin), assists in converting food to energy and plays a critical role in the production DNA and RNA, the genetic material in cells.

What is CBD?
CBD has recently gained huge traction as a powerful and proven natural alternative to conventional medicine for many health concerns and its use is now legally approved as long as it meets the relevant requirements as laid down by SAHPRA.
This is great news for people who would prefer to simplify their health regime with a more natural alternative as opposed to taking multiple medications for different health issues. Because CBD helps the body reach a state of systemic balance - or homeostasis - it targets more, with less. That’s why it’s fast becoming a sensation in the healthcare world.
As a complementary health solution, it targets multiple health issues with one key natural ingredient: CBD – or cannabidiol – a cannabinoid and a naturally occurring chemical in cannabis plants. While CBD is derived from the cannabis plant, it is different to another cannabinoid, THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) , which is used recreationally for its euphoric ‘high’ effect. Unlike THC, CBD and organic CBD hemp seed oil doesn’t give you the high that THC is known for and may, in fact, reduce the high.
