The powder is a good option for those who cant take pills but is the 'hydroxocobalamin' the right form for elderly  or methylcobalamin?.does the 1)hydroxocobalamin lower homocysteine?

                                                        2)is the excess easily eliminated by the body?

                                                        3)is it the preferred form for all age groups with B12 deficiency.

Thank you.

 Sorry! Why does the supplmts facts show it as 'hydroxocobalamin acetate' at iherb.com  and methylcobalamin on lef website?. I wish the Folate is in the active form 5MTHF.

Is 500mcg of chromium safe to take everyday in the longrun? isit good for early stage kidney disease?

My suggestion is to ask iherb if they need to update their description or if they have last year's formula.

Five hundred micrograms per day chromium in a nutritional compound (not hexavalent chromium) appears to be safe but there have been no long term studies conducted.  A lower amount is also effective.  Life Extension's nutritional suggestions for kidney disease http://www.lef.org/protocols/kidney_urinary/kidney_disease_les.htm#AnchorSug don't list it as being helpful for such.

Sorry if this isn't the best thread to pose this question, but a friend in New Zealand wants to know:
  • Why oh why can't #1 rated LEF Mix be sold in New Zealand?


I know, the NZ Ministry of Health disallows any supplement containing over 1,000 IU of vitamin D and LEF Mix now contains 2,000, making it have too much vitamin D to be sold legally,
but the fix for that seems much too easy. . .

Make a special limited-dose formula just for NZ residents.  It's as easy as putting a new label on the same bottle! Start with the capsule bottle, and rather than label the serving size "14 capsules per day", change the label to "7 capsules per day".
Problem solved! 

Sure, they're not getting the same dose as what LEF recommends elsewhere, but at least the product gets in their hands.  And is it really that disingenuous to do so knowing some people might disobey their ministry of health and take a double dose, on their own accord?
