BioStrath Tonic 30 Day Challenege

Happy November everyone! I hope you all enjoyed your Hallowe’en more than I did – I spent mine studying, as I had to write my Canadian Dietetics Registration Exam on November 1st. I’m happy to say I think it went pretty well, but I’ll know for sure in probably 7 – 8 weeks.

Now that all the Hallowe’en candy and indulgence is behind us, why not take take on some health and wellness challenges for the month of November in preparation for the Christmas holiday season? Not only have I signed up for the November #300aDay Challenge (eek!), but I was also offered the opportunity to try out BioStrath Tonic – a natural health product from A.Vogel.

A little about the tonic:

Bio-Strath Nutritional Supplements are based on a nutritional yeast called Saccharomyces cerevisiae. This yeast has long been recognized for its rich source of natural B-vitamins.

In a special Bio-Strath manufacturing process, this specific yeast is fed selected plant extracts and then liquefied by fermentation yielding plasmolysed* yeast. This way, the yeast cell contents are released in a natural way, without the use of heat, to better preserve the integrity of the nutrients.

*The plasmolysis process in effect stops the yeast’s ability to duplicate itself and as such any fears of Bio-Strath promoting yeast overgrowth in individuals suffering from Candida albican is negated.

It provides the full compliment of B Vitamins, as well as Vitamin C, and many minerals such as Calcium, Magnesium, Iron, Zinc, and many of the other trace elements. It comes in an elixir, tablets, or drops, and it both lactose free and suitable for vegans. Unfortunately, it isn’t gluten-free, as it does contain a malt extract.

While I am always all about getting your vitamins and minerals from food, I also realize that some people may need to supplement with products from time to time when they can’t have optimal nutrition. And I am always interested in exploring the many options out there, so I can better understand what I might see as an RD counseling patients. I figure what better way to find out than to try the stuff out for yourself? So I will be taking my 10 mL dose, 3 times per day (as recommended) for the next 30 days. You can follow my progress on Twitter (@fache79), and of course I will make sure to blog about it once I’ve completed the challenge.

 

Do you take any vitamin or mineral supplements, even if you feel you have a well balanced or varied diet? Why or why not? Discuss!

    Good luck with the challenge! I always take a Vitamin D, calcium, multi-vitamin every day – when I put my food in caloriecount.com, those two are always below the optimum level!

    Have a great weekend!
