The B vitamins are eight water-soluble vitamins that play important roles in cell metabolism. Historically, the B vitamins were once thought to be a single vitamin, referred to as vitamin B (much like how people refer to vitamin C or vitamin D). Later research showed that they are chemically distinct vitamins that often coexist in the same foods. Supplements containing all eight B vitamins are generally referred to as a vitamin B complex. Individual B vitamin supplements are referred to by the specific name of each vitamin (e.g. B1, B2, B3).

  14. Our bodies are hard-wired to eat foods. For thousands of years people have developed digestion and absorption processes that function optimally when fed nutrients in their natural food matrix. Naturally Nova Scotia produces vitamin and nutrient supplements that contain real foods. What a novel idea?! Freeze-dried botanicals ensure enzymatic activity and nutrient content is maintained. There are NO SYNTHETICS, NO ARTIFICIAL FLAVORS, AND NO FILLERS. Additionally and perhaps most importantly, all Naturally Nova Scotia products are made with CERTIFIED ORGANIC ingredients. Naturally Nova Scotia believes in nourishment from whole foods…as Mother Nature intended.
