Quote
Each vegetable capsule contains:

Vitamin B5 (calcium-D-pantothenate)...50mg

Zinc and copper

Andy,

I am giving lil A Osteocare (I ordered a box of the liquid a while back, I will order the chewables once the kids have finished the liquid).

I also supplement with extra vitamin D3 and zinc.  Today I purchased to following to replace the zinc tablet that I give him (in order to give him copper):

Quote
Classic Series - scarce essential minerals
Zinc -Copper Balance

Mineral Aspartates and Krebs Cycle Ligands

Zinc (Citrate, malate, Succinate, Fumerate)     15mg
Copper (Citrate, Malate)                               2mg

Discussion: Zinc and copper are esential minerals critical to health and commonly deficient in Western diets.  Unbalanced zinc supplementation is common, which may lead to secondary coper deficiency by competing for absorption and interfering with its metabolism.  Research suggests that an excessive ratio of zinc to copper has a negative impact on cardiovascular and skeletal health.

Andy, do you think that this is a good product?  Should zinc/copper be balanced better b/c lil A is getting zinc in Osteocare?

Thanks,
Sharmin

I would not add anymore copper than that. The ratio should be around 10:1 zinc/copper, so adding a little more zinc would be appropriate.
Andy

All we are saying is give thals a chance.

The B-complex looks like a good product for a child. An adult would want to double those amounts. Also, it's best taken with meals to avoid stomach upset.

BTW, the difference that the B-complex makes in terms of energy for my son is quite amazing!  It is definitely one of the best supplements I have given him.

Andy,

For adults taking 2 tablets of the B-complex vitamins - is it better to take both at once or is it better to take two separate doses (1 morning & 1 evening) ? 

I will start giving lil A the zinc/copper supplement tomorrow.

Sharmin,
Osteocare also have 10mg Zinc, soo total zinc you're giving Littl-A is 25mg after adding this supplement that is having 15mg ..... soo its a little more than Andy's sugested ratio ...

M i Right Andy ???? ....

Sharmin,

You can take the B complex either way. It's more a matter of personal preference than anything. If you are feeling tired, you may want to try twice daily to see if it makes any difference by having a constant dose in your body.

Manal,

The amount of B vitamins in Yummi Bears is fairly low so it is OK to use a B complex also.

Umair,

Don't forget that there are also amounts of these minerals taken from diet. The ratio is only approximate so a bit more zinc is not a problem. The main thing is to make sure some copper is taken if on long term zinc supplements.

B-complex: SUPPLEMENTS FOR CHILDREN
« Reply #89 on: April 29, 2009, 12:12:51 AM »
Andy,

Lil A plays soccer daily at school.  Today is his first soccer game of the season this year.  He seems pretty active and healthy - I have given him a second B-complex this evening (he had his first pill in the morning).  Is this what you would advise Andy? 

Thanks,

Sharmin

ps. with the aggressive chelation - exjade/desferal 7X a week and IP6 3 times a day - his color has completely returned to normal - his complexion is completely light and clear.  Thanks for your support & advice everyone :)
Sharmin
