Vitamin D3 - Immune Support
Hardly a week passes without more impressive research on this vitamin/precursor hormone. Vitamin D3 is now regarded as a very important nutrient for helping us to maintain optimum health. It is one of the few essential nutrients that cannot generally be consumed in sufficient amounts in food. (Best nutritional sources being salmon, mackerel, sardines and tuna, although they only contain around 5mcg per serving.) Usually we meet our Vitamin D3 requirement through exposing our skin to sunlight, which is one reason why we usually feel so good when we are on sunshine holidays or during the summer months. This nutrient plays many invaluable roles in our bodies:
- Supports immune function
- Necessary for strong and healthy bones
- Needed for proper function of the thyroid
- Helps in calcium absorption
- Plays a role in cardiovascular function
- Supports healthy inflammatory response
- Needed for normal cell division
This is one of the most bio-available and non-toxic Vitamin D3 nutritional supplements available. It is extracted from sheep's wool using methanol, and analysis confirms that it is free from methanol, hexane and cholorbenzene tagalongs. The only other ingredients in the product are the extra virgin olive oil base, and natural vitamin E, which acts as a natural preservative.

Vitamin B Complex - Metabolic Support
The B Vitamins, known collectively as Vitamin B-complex, are natural nutrients that are vital for healthy cell metabolism as well as many other functions in the body. At one time they were thought to be a single vitamin, until research showed that what had been designated as Vitamin B was in fact eight different substances, which were then labelled Vitamin B1 (thiamine), Vitamin B2 (riboflavin), Vitamin B3 (niacin), Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid), Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), Vitamin B7 (biotin), Vitamin B9 (folate or folic acid) and Vitamin B12 (cobalamins). These vitamins all have important functions in the body that include:
- Normal cell energy production
- Nervous system & psychological support (good for stress)
- Maintenance of normal skin and mucous membranes
- Immune system support
- Normal cell reproduction
Max B is one of the very highest and most bio-available Vitamin B-complex nutritional supplements available. It is manufactured in a unique way that involves predigesting food plants, herbs and spices in a proprietary probiotic culture that has been modelled on the human intestinal tract. This unique prepatory process and the fact that the product remains in liquid form makes the Quantum Nutrition B-complex vitamins extremely bioavailable because they have been produced in a "food state", and the product includes methaylated forms of these vitamins, an important consideration for the large percentage of people who are not able to utilize (methylate) B vitamins properly, and therefore who can potentially have elevated homocysteine levels.
Max B contains all the B vitamins because research has shown that they work more effectively when they are delivered together, rather than individually.
