A New Vitamins & Minerals Mix

To keep up with the latest nutritional research, we’ve updated our custom blend of vitamins and minerals. 

Added Choline

Choline is a relatively recently discovered nutrient: it was only acknowledged as a required nutrient by the Institute of Medicine in 1998.

But choline is involved in many different bodily processes. For example, liver function, healthy brain development, muscle movement, fat transport and metabolism, and DNA synthesis. A deficiency can cause issues like muscle damage, liver damage, and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (1,2, 4, 5).

That’s why for this update, we outfitted the Plenny Drink with Choline Hydrogen Tartrate. One Plenny Drink v3.0 contains 110mg, which is already 28% of the recommended intake of 400mg/day.  

Vitamin B12

The latest findings on the absorption rate of vitamin B12 made us more curious and after some more research we found out that there can be a saturation in the absorption rate. Active absorption is severely limited. Studies state that the absorption efficiency of B12 is lower when B12 content is higher. (10) They showed that the absorption of B12 varies from about 56%, if about 1 microgram or less is consumed, to about 1.3% for doses of 1000 micrograms (1 milligram) or above.

Studies specifically done on cyanocobalamin estimated the absorptive capacity of cyanocobalamin as 49% and another study as 1.5–2.5 μg per meal, which depends on the maximum saturation of the intestine receptors. This is why we decided to lower the amounts added but, of course, make sure that the daily needs and requirements are met. (11-15) In persons with normal absorption, an intake of 4–7 ug of vitamin B12 a day is associated with an adequate vitamin B12 status. (16) 

Reviews from EFSA conclude that supplements available on the market usually contain dosages between 1-5 µg. (17) An appropriate overdosing based on the bioavailability of different vitamin forms is 2-4 times more than the established adequate intake (which is 4ug for B12) without exceeding any upper limits if established.

The National Centre for Biotechnology Information states that cyanocobalamin losses in urine have been observed to be 3 times higher than that of methylcobalamin. Although absorption in the blood of both B12 forms was similar, it was found that methylcobalamin supplementation caused 13% more cobalamin to be stored in the liver than did cyanocobalamin supplementation. (17-19)

We use cyanocobalamin because of being the only non-animal form of this vitamin available for the application we need, and taking into account the previous, at 4 times higher than the daily recommended intakes. 

Dried purple laver for B12 (Cyanocobalamin)

Dried purple laver is a plant product and the most suitable vitamin B12 source available for vegetarians and vegans. Dried purple laver contains high levels of other nutrients that tend to lack in vegetarian diets, like iron and omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. 

That’s why one Plenny Drink v3.0 has 3.2ug of vitamin B12, which amounts to 128% of the daily recommended intake. Sufficient, don’t you think? 

Vitamin E, D

Because it's an antioxidant and because of its preservative qualities, we increased Vitamin E. We also increased the vitamin D content, so you’re less dependent on a daily dose of sunlight. Take that, sun! 

Selenium

We also increased Selenium in order to meet the latest adequate intake of 70ug/day, established by EFSA (20).
