All folate is not created equal. Folic acid is not folate!

Posted in Health, Healthy Alternatives, Nutrition, Vitamin B(s), Vitamins on 31.07.17


We all need folate but not all folate is created equal and folic acid is not folate.


Folic acid buyers beware. You may have been told that taking the dietary supplement called “folic acid” would give you adequate stores of folate. Think again and consider this.

Folic acid is a synthetic version of natural folate. Many supplement manufacturers cheap out on their B Complex supplements. They use “folic acid” instead of folate.  When buying a good B Complex supplement, look for the following names of biologically active folate. This is the folate that your body understands and is able to process.

There are other names for these good forms of folate which include Levomefolic acid, 5-MTHF, 5-methyltetrahydrofolate, (6S)-5-methyltetrahydrofolate and L-methylfolate or LMF.

As Suzy Cohen wrote in a recent article, the biologically active form of folic acid known as folate is used in cells for DNA production, the cysteine cycle and the break down of homocysteine.

Natural folate can cross your blood brain barrier. Inside your cells, natural folate is used in the methylation cycle.  Natural folate helps you convert homocysteine back into methionine and THF (tetrahydrofolate). This is a good thing. You don’t want homocysteine to build up as it is a risk factor for many illnesses. Homocysteine is a  pro-inflammatory cytokine.

REMEMBER “FOLIC ACID” IS SYNTHETIC. It is the UN-methylated form sold as vitamin B9 (folic acid) in most dietary supplements, especially the more affordable ones. Folic acid is very inexpensive to make.

Butterfly Looking Thyroid Gland

Thyroid function abnormalities and what to do about them are the topics for this week’s HCG detox weight loss virtual support group Meet Up discussion.  We also chatted a bit about hCG during the Q&A portion of our virtual meeting and touched base on quality B Complex supplements.  Thyroid disease including hypothyroidism is on the rise.  Learn to identify the signs, what tests are necessary when determining an individual’s thyroid health and what you can do about correcting the situation.  It is estimated that more than 40% of the population of the United States has some sort of hypothyroid issue going on. Listen in and get an education as we discuss the importance of the thyroid gland, where it is located and a whole lot more.  This event was broadcast live on Monday, March 23, 2015.

Participate live from home, work, auto, anywhere (sign up on MeetUp) or listen to the replay anytime by logging into the A Voice For Change blog page (www.avoiceforchange.com/blog).  Can’t be on the call live, email me your questions, then listen to the answers on the recording.  I would love for you to join us live on Monday evenings to discuss HCG detox weight loss and so much more.  We meet every Monday evening at 8:30pm Eastern time via teleconference.  Topics for upcoming meetings are shown on Meet Up and vary week to week.  These topics include but are not limited to weight issues and weight management, the use of hCG, detoxification, hormone, adrenal and thyroid balancing, addictions, psychology of food, food quality, food prep, recipes, etc and all that goes along with getting and staying healthy.

The Doctor Is In Q & A – Cardiovascular – Preventing Heart Attacks

Posted in Cardio - Heart Health, Inflamation, The Doctor Is In, Vitamin B(s) on 21.08.14


Q.   Dear Dr. Pearson,   I was recently told by a friend that I should be taking a good B Complex supplement. They said it has something to do with heart function but couldn’t elaborate beyond that. They also didn’t know a good brand to recommend. Could you please let me know the importance of B vitamins and maybe suggest a brand that is of good quality?
Thank you, D.S., Phoenix, AZ

a624015459f54f02A.  Dear D.S.      Do you know what you’re Homocysteine level is? If you don’t, you should. This silent heart (cardiovascular system) inflammatory marker can be a sign of a future heart attack or stroke waiting to happen. When you hear of people dropping dead of a heart attack with no other risk factors, normal cholesterol, normal blood pressure, and they are physically fit, often times it’s due to this common inflammatory condition that is very specific to the arteries throughout the body. Without adequate broad spectrum B vitamins the arteries become inflamed and ‘sticky’, which begins the process of plaque formation as the body tries to heal the wound. By simply replacing the B vitamins adequately, and sometimes correcting thyroid dysfunction as well, the body is able to heal the artery and prevent future plaques. Of course, Big Pharma won’t support homocysteine claims as they have no drug to sell, but this is a widely known and very important marker to be checked when you get your next blood test done. PureCell B Complex is a brand that I would recommend. Not all B supplements are the same. Many are made with inferior or even synthetic ingredients. I recommend and sell PureCell supplements because you can’t beat the strength and purity of this brand.

Shiitake Mushrooms

Posted in Health, Vitamin B(s) on 18.04.13


IDKT (I Didn’t Know That)

shiitake…shiitake mushrooms were such a nutritious food. Now I know that they contain a bunch of B vitamins and oodles of minerals. These wonderful shrooms help some of our cells (macrophages which are cancer-killing cells) to function better. Because they are packed with B vitamins the likes of B2, B3, B5, B6, they can be a great supplier of energy to our bodies and they contain selenium, zinc, manganese, potassium,
