Preventing dementia – this is how it works

Preventing dementia: This is how it works

Dementia is one of the most feared diseases and affects more and more people in old age. The necessary knowledge to prevent dementia is unfortunately not widespread. However, the fact that prevention is possible has now been proven in studies.

In this article, we would like to show you how to recognize dementia, what the current research situation looks like and, most importantly, what you can do if you want to prevent dementia. But first to the basics:

prevent dementia

Who does dementia affect?

Dementia comes in a wide range of severity levels. From mild dementia to severe Alzheimer’s disease, all intermediate stages can be found.

It typically begins between the ages of 50 and 60, and the risk of developing dementia increases with age. By the time they reach the age of 70, around 16 percent of people in Germany are already affected.

How does dementia manifest itself?

Dementia begins slowly and insidiously. Forgetfulness and absentmindedness are the first symptoms at which many people become alert. But even those who feel powerless, easily fatigued, or irritable could be suffering from mild dementia – because these, far less well-known symptoms are also the first signs. Depressive moods and sleep disturbances are also common early symptoms of dementia. As the disease progresses, those affected then find it increasingly difficult to retain new things or to orient themselves in familiar surroundings. Their judgment may decline, they become moody, and they withdraw more and more as the disease progresses. Other possible symptoms include the following complaints:

  • Forgetting events from the recent past
  • Difficulty performing familiar activities
  • Speech disorders
  • decreasing interest in work, hobbies and contacts
  • Difficulty in finding one’s way in a foreign environment
  • lack of overview of financial matters
  • Misjudgment of hazards
  • unprecedented mood swings, persistent anxiety, irritability, and distrust
  • Stubborn denial of errors, mistakes or confusion

In severe cases, verbal expression, planning ability, and spatial imagination suffer. However, even at this stage of dementia, those affected can still perform the most important everyday tasks themselves and without assistance.

It becomes much more serious when dementia develops into Alzheimer’s disease. The cognitive abilities of those affected can then suffer to the point where the most basic skills can be lost.

Not inevitable for a long time: Here's how you can prevent dementia

So if a preventive measure could be found to delay or even stop the disease, this would not only help those affected, but also the immense number of relatives. A study by Oxford University in the United Kingdom raises hope in this regard.

B vitamins lower homocysteine levels

This two-year study involved 168 people, all of whom had mild cognitive impairment. The group was divided into two: One half received a high-dose vitamin tablet, the other as a control group, a placebo. In the vitamin tablet was 15 times the recommended daily allowance of vitamin B6, 4 times the recommended daily allowance of vitamin B9 (folic acid), and 200 times the recommended daily allowance of vitamin B12.

All of these vitamins are known to lower plasma homocysteine levels. Homocysteine is an amino acid that is produced in the body whenever proteins are metabolized. When homocysteine is present in excess, it can damage blood vessels.

And indeed: the higher the homocysteine level of the test subjects, the faster the Alzheimer’s disease progressed. Thus, reducing these levels with the help of the aforementioned vitamin therapy successfully slowed the progression in the already affected subjects compared to the control group. The same also worked with a halving of the originally applied amounts of vitamin B.

You can read the original study at this link.

prevent dementia

Prevent dementiawith vitamin B

The brains of the subjects who received vitamin B shrank on average half as fast as those from the placebo group. The effect was particularly pronounced in participants whose homocysteine levels were very high at the start of the studio.

Commenting on the study, Professor David Smith, the study’s research leader, said: “We have hope that this simple and safe treatment method may delay the development of Alzheimer’s disease, at least in those patients who have only mild memory impairment.”

In scientific circles, the results were discussed controversially and the comparatively high vitamin doses were criticized because of possible side effects. However, even if the above amounts sound high, they are still well below the “Tolerable Upper Intake Level” defined by the European Food Safety Authority – i.e. the highest tolerated daily intake. These amounts describe the upper limits that are considered safe and harmless for a lifetime of daily intake.

In general, criticism of methods that rely on high doses of vitamins is common in conservative medical circles: the reason for this is that these high doses often bring very positive effects and put the (often expensive and futile) attempts of the pharmaceutical industry in the shade.

Even when it comes to dementia prevention, millions of dollars of research money have already been gobbled up in search of efficient drugs, without any significant findings being made.

Vitamin B alone is not enough

If you read one of our articles from time to time, you may already know that taking vitamins selectively is not a good idea in the long term: the body’s entire utilization of vitamins and vital substances is based on the fine interplay of a wide variety of substances. If one of these 57 or so substances is missing, this can trigger a whole chain of problems that interlock and aggravate each other.

Of the three important vitamins that led to great success in the Oxford study, we would like to break this down using vitamin B9 (folic acid) as an example.

For the body to be able to utilize folic acid optimally, it needs many other substances: iron, vitamin C, vitamin B12 and zinc are among the most important representatives here. So if you add folic acid to your body but do not pay attention to the basic supply of the other substances, the deficiency cannot be completely eliminated.

Complete forte

Prevent dementia all around - with Viptamin Complete Forte

A possible solution to this problem is our Viptamin Complete Forte. In it you will find not only the three B vitamins mentioned in particularly high doses, but also all the other ingredients that your body needs to be able to utilize the B vitamins perfectly. However, a total of 57. dementia is far from being the only thing that you effectively prevent with Viptamin Complete Forte. Here are some more articles that show you more about the effects of vitamins and vital substances and explain how our Viptamin Komplett Forte is also a useful solution here:

Fruits or vegetables: which is better? – Part 1

fruits or vegetables

Fruits or vegetables: which is better?

Do you, dear reader, consider vegetables and fruits to be equally healthy? It is one of the most common fallacies about nutrition, because they are far from it.

In our new series, we want to chronicle the important differences and help you make better nutrition decisions.

what is better fruits or vegetables new

Fruits and vegetables are not equally good for health

When we talk about healthy eating, fruits and vegetables are always mentioned as equally healthy. They are not. We believe that vegetables are significantly higher quality than fruit.

Because unlike vegetables, fruit contains high amounts of a substance that, among other things. can put a lot of strain on the intestines:

The fruit sugar (fructose). Meanwhile, fructose is even held responsible for some chronic diseases in the whole organism.

Even the German Nutrition Society has become more cautious in recommending fruit.

What makes fruit a critical food?

In the past, fresh fruit was available to us only when it could be harvested from the local trees and bushes. There was little variety, the fruit was not overbred, not loaded with ripening accelerators, and only available at certain times of the year.

Nowadays there is a very wide range of fruits all year round, most of them imported. We find exotic fruits of all kinds in the fruit counter, as juices, smoothies, chutneys, purees, jams, preserves, in yogurts and, in dried form, as snacks, in mueslis and bars. Many of them consist of high amounts of hidden sugars.

vegetables fruits

For example, 100 g contain:

  • Bananas: 21 g fructose
  • Grapes: 17 g fructose
  • Lychee: 17 g fructose
  • Figs: 16 g fructose
  • Pineapple: 13 g fructose
  • Mango: 13 g fructose
  • Pears: 12 g fructose
  • Nectarines: 12 g fructose
  • Apples: 11 g fructose
  • Cherries: 11 g fructose
  • Plums: 10 g fructose
  • Watermelon: 6 g fructose

Dried fruit is even higher in sugar. Apples, dates and raisins, for example, contain up to 70 grams of sugar.

Berry fruits are the lowest in sugar. Strawberries, blackberries and raspberries, hit with a maximum of 5 mg. At best, the lemons are lower.

Fructose is about ⅓ sweeter than glucose (grape sugar). If you feed your children lots of fresh fruit, you condition them to like sweet foods from a very early age. Nowadays, since the taste of particularly sweet fruits is preferred, fruits with more and more sugar are bred.

Fructose from fruits is joined by that from soft drinks, bread, sweets, ready-made sauces, soups, canned foods, etc., to which high amounts of the sugar are added. Excess glucose is also converted to fructose. So at the end of the day, the balance of fructose can reach a worrying level.

And how much fructose is contained in vegetables?

Among vegetables, there are also forms rich in fructose, such as cabbage, kohlrabi, eggplant and carrots. However, the sugar levels are nowhere near those of fruit.

The highest concentrations are about 1.3g/100g of vegetables. In contrast to fruits, the positive vital substance content outweighs the damage caused by the fructose.

Soon we will continue with the second part

The fact that vegetables are much more beneficial for a healthy diet than fruit is a fact that many people are not really aware of. Therefore, there will be a second part on this topic for you shortly. If you’d like to know more and be notified when Part 2 is released, feel free to sign up for our newsletter!

For your health: take out a subscription

Subscribing to our Viptamin Complete Forte is a fantastic idea and has only advantages for you. We explain why this is the case in detail in this article.

lumos-viptamine-portrait-09-2 1

Dear Readers,

I would like to convince you today – I’ll be honest – to take out a subscription to our Complete Forte. The reason I want to do this is because I’m convinced it’s a smart choice for your health and ultimately your wallet. I would now like to remind you once again why this is so.

I would appreciate if you invest a few minutes of your time in your health and read this post carefully.

Cordial,
Daniel Meister

Our Complete Forte is absolutely unique. Do you know why?

Our Complete Forte is really something special. It is precisely adjusted at great expense, particularly high doses and contains only the best quality ingredients, which we process particularly gently using the most modern methods. You can read about all of this in detail on our website or in my free e-book on the subject.

All of these factors make a huge difference. Quality is above all and you do not “trick” your body with inferior substances. The effects that especially high-quality supplements can have on your body are all the more considerable for it.

sri-lanka-KSa66AYiqnk-unsplash 1

Long-term success needs long-term commitment

While it is a very good product, even our Complete Forte can’t trick your body. Vital substances are consumed and their concentration in the body decreases shortly after ingestion. However, in order to provide your body with optimal care, it is important to keep your concentration permanently high. This only works if you take your Komplett Forte every day.

The fact that it works is proven by our many happy subscribers, whose opinions about Komplett Forte you can read on the website. And I myself can also assure you: Now 53 years old, I feel incredibly vital. I have been working with vital substances for over 30 years. I take the resulting Komplett Forte every day without exception. In my case, it took over a year of high doses until I saw success and my neurodermatitis slowly disappeared. To keep it that way, I know what I have to do. Because it is much easier to prevent a problem than to solve it when it is there.

Commit yourself to good health and save money in the process

Not only does a subscription help you stay in the green zone of the scale shown above, but on our end it keeps administrative costs lower than if you keep placing individual orders. We would like to reward this by passing this saving directly on to you: so there is a 5% discount on every single delivery.

Questions? Insecurities? We are here for you

Do you have any questions about the explanations in this e-mail? Do you need more information to make a decision that is right for you? Do you have any general questions or comments about our Viptamin Complete Forte?

The new Complete Forte is here: discover the 2022 formula now

The new Komplett Forte is here:
Discover the 2022 formula now!

As you may know, one of the features of our Complete Forte is that we optimize the formula every year to adapt it to new scientific findings and respond to valuable customer feedback.

Now it’s that time again – and from now on we would like to take you on this exciting journey and inform you about our changes.

Proven and optimized in a new look

Let’s start right away with the most “obvious” change: We have given the Komplett Forte a new coat of paint. Since
When we switched to paper bags two years ago, we received a lot of positive feedback from our customers, who are very happy with the easy-to-dispose bag. Then last year we switched from brown bags to (equally recyclable) white bags, and this year we modernized the design of the bag. From now on you can see on the Complete Forte all the
Things that make it so great: Its excellent ingredients.

Even if the change in appearance is a big one, don’t worry: all in all, the Komplett Forte is still exactly the product you appreciate so much. There have been a few changes, however, which we will now go into in detail.

Now new: silicon - for healthy connective tissue, bones and hair

paul-siewert-dnpa8k6TGRE-unsplash

As every year, we have made some carefully selected formula changes to further improve the Complete Forte. On the whole, this is reflected mainly in slight variations in the quantities of the composition to allow for even better interaction. However, there is also a new vital substance: silicon.

Silicon occurs naturally in our body. Each person has about 20mg of it per kilo of body weight, but there is evidence that this concentration decreases with age. Silicon is involved in our bodies – like most substances always in interaction with other vitamins, minerals and amino acids in some important processes. It serves an important role as a building block of our connective tissue, blood vessels, tendons, ligaments, bones, cartilage, hair and nails.

As with all the ingredients in Forte, quality is our top priority when choosing the silicon source. Our silicon comes into Komplett Forte in the form of organic bamboo shoot extract. The bamboo plants absorb and bind the silicon found in the soil in ortho-silica. This gives bamboo its special elasticity with strong hardness – and it is precisely from these effects in silicon that your body can also benefit.

Of course, our bamboo shoot extract used is vegan and free from solvents and other undesirable components.

A better taste, completely without unnecessary compromises

As you may know, we don’t treat our Komplett Forte as a lifestyle product whose taste is paramount.

Therefore, our unconditional pursuit of the best quality does not allow us to use artificial flavors and other substances that improve the taste, but offer nothing in return to their body.
Some ingredients that come directly from nature, we also used in the past to direct the taste a little:

Among them, for example, natural vanilla or finely ground beet. We have now slightly adjusted some of the ingredients in their composition – the result is a less bitter, balanced and overall better tasting Complete Forte, still completely without unnatural additives and artificial flavors.

Convince yourself

We are excited about the new formula of our Viptamin Complete Forte. Its optimized taste and now even better vital substance profile make it the best Complete Forte we have ever offered. Its new, colorful packaging expresses what has always made it so special: the best raw materials we can get.

We would be pleased if you would try the improved Complete Forte. And as always: We look forward to your suggestions, because of course work on the 2023 formula is already in full swing again.

Your immune system does not receive enough raw materials!

Your immune system does not receive enough raw materials!

Our immune system has a single task: to defend and destroy invaders that are harmful to our health. These can be viruses, bacteria, microorganisms.

There are 3 options:

1. your immune system is stronger, wins. The disease is over.
2. your immune system is too weak. They die.
3. the immune system does not win completely: The pathogen continues to nest in the body and your immune system fights against it unsuccessfully. The energy consumed here is missing in your everyday life. They call it chronic fatigue syndrome, burnout.

Case 3 is by far the most common:
It is by no means the case that the immune system functions “by itself”. The right combination of proteins and related amino acids, vitamins, minerals and trace elements are a basic condition for a healthy and well protective immune system.

T cells, lymphocytes and antibodies

Due to the media coverage surrounding the coronavirus, we have all become experts on how the immune system works in the last two years – but let’s summarize the most important thing once again:

Essentially, the immune system consists of two important components: Cells that circulate in our blood vessels and thus find their way directly to the invaded pathogens to fight them there and proteins that support these cells. In the following, we address both:

Cellular components

The first of the two pieces of the puzzle is a wide variety of cell types that are part of the immune system. Granulocytes and macrophages (giant macrophages) recognize pathogens and try to “eat” them. Killer cells identify cells attacked by the disease and destroy them. The T cells we hear so much about lately have in common that they are produced in the thymus gland, and from there they make their way to infected cells and pathogens.

All these cells must be formed by our body. For this, the body needs raw materials in the form of vitamins, minerals, trace elements and protein. For the cellular components, our body absolutely needs B vitamins, vitamins C, D and E, iron, zinc and selenium. And as always when it comes to the body’s supply, many of these substances can only develop their full effect if, in turn, other auxiliary substances are sufficiently available.

Plasma proteins

The second important part of our immune system is various proteins – proteins that support the cells. Here, too, there are different types with different functions – the best known are certainly the antibodies: a fascinating concept:

Once our body has recognized pathogens, it begins to produce these antibodies that match the pathogen in question like a key to a conclusion. Customized processes tailored to the pathogen thus ensure that the problem can be combated in a targeted manner. In addition to antibodies, there are other aspects of the immune system that are formed from proteins, but that would go beyond the scope of this article.

Importantly, without adequate protein supply, the body cannot fabricate these important components and our immune system cannot function. More about this in the following.

The biggest problem for the immune system: undersupply

As just explained, the most important condition for a well-functioning immune system is a particularly good supply of vitamins, proteins, trace elements and minerals.

Only when these raw materials are available in large quantities and of the best quality can our body produce the necessary cells and plasma proteins. If the raw materials are missing, the immune system suffers.

Modern physicians who have understood the importance of a good supply of vital substances and treat their patients with a focus on this, repeatedly find deficits in their patients here, which can lead to a not optimally functioning immune system.

Two of these physicians are Dr. Ulrich Strunz and Dr. Michael Spitzbart. Both attach great importance to a good supply of vital substances. They regularly report on real-world examples in their books and web blogs.

In his book “Frohmedizin” Dr. Strunzt reports in detail on the consequences of this undersupply. To name just a few examples:

  • The total protein in the body is the main building block of antibodies. Too low a value prevents sufficient formation
  • Valine, phenylalanine and other amino acids determine in detail how well these antibodies can be formed
  • Vitamin B6 directs these amino acids to the immune system – here, too, a deficiency quickly becomes dangerous
  • Vitamin C – most people already know – is also very important and represents a large part of the formation of cellular components
  • Zinc also plays a role here. If the zinc concentration is too low, the necessary cells cannot function as intended.

Treat yourself to an optimal immune system

As you can see, you can support your immune system by making sure you get the best possible supply of all vital substances and especially amino acids found in high-quality protein.

For this we recommend our Viptamin Complete Forte, which contains everything you need. If you take both daily, you will strengthen your immune system and create all the conditions for optimal health.

Vitamin B12 from Viptamin

vitamin b12 heart

Does it make sense to take vitamin B12 alone?
No - B12 alone is not enough and is only useful in combination.

vitamin b12 alone is not enough

Vitamin B12 deficiency: Sufficient intake is a widespread problem

vitamin b12 heart

Vitamin B12 is very important for the proper functioning of our cells. It represents an important basis for cell division and thus growth in itself, is needed for the formation of our red blood cells and is an important prerequisite for the functioning of our entire nervous system. You see, without B12 almost nothing works.

It is one of the vitamins that many people are deficient in. Vegetarians and vegans are more often affected because it is found sparingly in plant foods. But many non-vegetarians are also affected. Why? Vitamin B12 can only be absorbed if the intestinal mucosa is healthy. For this to happen, it needs intrinsic factor, a transport protein. Less and less of this is produced with increasing age and chronic stomach problems. That is why the need for vitamin B12 increases.


Vitamin B12
is therefore very useful, but it is not enough.

Everything in the body interlocks - vitamin B12 alone does not work

Like all substances that the body needs, it is also the case with B12 that its optimal functioning again depends on other substances. Here are two examples:
  • If you are low in B12, one of the reasons may be that you are also low in B6 – because a B6 deficiency worsens the body’s ability to absorb B12
  • If you have too little B12, there is a high risk of folic acid deficiency because the normal functioning of folic acid metabolism depends on vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 and folic acid work together in the bone marrow on your blood formation. Too few red blood cells means chronic fatigue. ¹
You guessed it: these two examples are not the only ones that depend on B12 and the mentioned affected substances (folic acid, B6) have for themselves again different dependencies of other vital substances. So, most of the time, a deficiency of a substance is an indication that you need to supplement all together.
Complete forte

The better choice

You see: Vitamin B12 can do a lot of good for your body. Even more so if you combine it intelligently and ensure that it can be optimally absorbed by the body.

The good news is that you don’t need any cumbersome vitamin B12 injections. The intake in combination with other vital substances is completely sufficient as studies show.

Taking a high-quality, high-dose multivitamin ensures that. We recommend our Viptamin Komplett Forte, because it provides your body with 57 vital substances everything it needs.

Vitamin D from Viptamin

Does it make sense to take vitamin D alone?
No - Viptamine D alone is not enough and is only useful in combination.

Vitamin D deficiency: a widespread problem

nic-y-c-WzazSaQF1F8-unsplash

Vitamin D has become increasingly prominent in society in recent years. Almost everyone knows “the sunshine vitamin”, as it likes to be called. The reason for this lies in the formation: our skin produces the vital vitamin when it comes into contact with sunlight.

But for the fact that the vitamin is so “easy” to form, its deficiency is a widespread problem. The direct consequences of deficiency are probably why you ended up here: Fatigue, lack of energy, increased risk of infections and muscular pain.

However, the long-term consequences of a deficiency are even more serious: It has now been proven that a vitamin D deficiency can also be a trigger for cancer, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, autoimmune diseases, depression, dementia and chronic pain conditions¹.

¹https://academic.oup.com/ajcn/article/89/5/1686S/4596962?login=false

Everything in the body interlocks - vitamin D alone does not work

Like all substances needed by the body, vitamin D’s optimal functioning is again dependent on other substances. Here are some examples:
  • Your body needs adequate levels of vitamin D to be able to absorb magnesium in sufficient amounts. So if you already have a vitamin D deficiency, it’s likely that a magnesium deficiency is also present or on the way.
  • If this magnesium deficiency is now present, the vitamin D in turn cannot flow into the bone structure as it should – this process is thus further disturbed.
  • The issue of calcium is also an important one in relation to vitamin D: If you have a vitamin D deficiency, the reason for this may be a calcium deficiency, because in order for the body to produce enough active vitamin D itself, calcium is an important condition.
You guessed it: these examples are not the only ones that depend on vitamin D and the mentioned affected substances (magnesium and calcium) have for themselves again different dependencies of other vital substances. So, most of the time, a deficiency of a substance is an indication that you need to supplement all together.
Complete forte

The better choice

You see: Vitamin D can do a lot of good for your body. Even more so if you combine it intelligently and ensure that it can be optimally absorbed by the body.

The fact that all the vital substance dependencies are overwhelming at the first moment is completely normal. For this reason, we have developed a solution that looks at the problem holistically and supports your body wherever there are deficiencies:

Our Viptamin Complete Forte: It provides your body with 57 vital substances everything it needs.

Statins: A “folk medicine” with pitfalls

statins side effects

Statins: A "folk medicine" with pitfalls

Millions of people in Germany diagnosed with cholesterol take statins every day. What the drug does, how it works, and whether it is always the only treatment option for high cholesterol, we explore in this article.

What is cholesterol?

The very term cholesterol evokes negative associations in many people. This is understandable, because we usually only hear about it in the context of it being elevated and needing to be reduced.

However, like all processes in the body that can become a problem, cholesterol is not evil in itself, but absolutely essential to life.

The substance, which is mainly produced in the liver, provides support for our cell membranes, but is also converted by our body into many different other substances, each of which has important effects in its own right.

For this purpose, cholesterol is repeatedly transported from the liver to the various body cells and back by the lipoproteins LDL and HDL, and can perform its tasks in order to be broken down again in the liver. The two substances work against each other, so to speak, and determine where how much cholesterol is located.

statine
Cholesterol is essential for life - only an excessive amount can become problematic.

An elevated cholesterol level

statine nebenwirkungen

For elevated cholesterol to become a problem, however, a lot now has to happen. First, in addition to the elevated LDL level, there must be an increase in lipoprotein (a) in the blood. It is required for the transport of fats into the blood and is very similar in structure to LDL cholesterol.

And even these two factors alone are still harmless – because it is only when the vessel walls are also attacked or cracked that the problem ultimately arises. This usually happens in the case of vascular inflammation – and this can easily be prevented by an adequate supply of antioxidants.

Stanine: A miracle cure?

Now modern medicine has a widespread solution to the supposed problem of cholesterol, which on closer inspection is not a solution at all: statins. They are supposed to lower cholesterol and thus simply correct the negative consequences of elevated levels.

Unfortunately, however, these statins are anything but the solution: because while statins do lower LDL levels in the blood, they have no effect on lipoprotein (a) levels and also have a devastating side effect profile. They lead to muscle pain, elevated liver enzymes, elevated blood sugar levels, and consequent risk of diabetes, gastrointestinal distress, headaches, and cataracts.

The much larger source of the problem – lipoprotein – is left untouched and can lead to vasoconstriction and coronary heart disease in elevated concentrations – even with “good” LDL levels.

You can read about this in detail in our article “Is your knowledge about cholesterol up to date?”.

Magnesium and a lifestyle change - the better solution

statine

Large-scale studies have long been able to show that taking magnesium achieves exactly the same effects as drug treatment with the help of statins: reduction of heart attacks, strokes, angina pectoris, etc. [1] – and all without the many negative side effects that come with taking statins.

And that is not the only advantage of magnesium: it is responsible for over 500 enzyme reactions. It ensures the smooth functioning of many of our most important bodily functions. For example, it stabilizes our cell membrane and ensures that we can tense our muscles.

So why does your trusted doctor still prescribe statins at all, and not simply combat the problem with the help of magnesium? Quite simply: the drug does not appear in his database because, unlike drugs, it cannot be patented and is therefore much cheaper than expensive statins. But: The effects of magnesium are proven.

As always, of course, it depends on the quality of the magnesium. It is important that the bioavailability is very high, which is only given with particularly high-quality magnesium sources. That is why we use the particularly valuable magnesium citrate in our Komplett Forte, which has proven to be particularly well utilized by the body.

The better choice

A final important component in the functioning of magnesium is its interaction with other vital substances. As you may already know from other articles of ours, it is usually the case that a group of substances only work really well in synergy.

In our Complete Forte, we have taken this into account for all possible combinations – including magnesium.

So if you want to do something good for yourself and your body with the help of magnesium and its many adjuvants, give us Viptamine Komplett Forte a try. It is vegan and really provides you with everything your body needs to function optimally – completely without the side effects of statins and much more efficiently.
