B vitamins of plant origin
Food supplement based on Cultavit®, obtained from fermented buckwheat sprouts, useful in promoting energy metabolism and contributing to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, or to successfully overcome a period of convalescence and regain energy.
Vegan-B is a completely natural product based on Cultavit®, a complex of B vitamins obtained from buckwheat sprouts (Fagopyrum esculentum), grown in an advanced hydroculture system that is unique in the world. Thanks to its high concentration, Vegan-B provides a natural alternative to B vitamins, usually obtained by chemical synthesis. It is well known that vitamins in natural form are better tolerated by the body than synthetic ones and also have far superior organoleptic and stability characteristics. Buckwheat is a gluten-free pseudocereal that belongs to the Polygonaceae family. The uses and benefits of buckwheat in supporting the body in its vital functions have long been reported in traditional herbal medicine.
Vegan-B® is a natural product rich in thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), niacin (vitamin B3), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxine (vitamin B6) folic acid (vitamin B9), and cobalamin (vitamin B12), in a buckwheat phytocomplex that promotes the nutritional action of the vitamins present in the product.
Therefore, the use of Vegan-B® can be a valid alternative to synthetic vitamins, providing a significant added value to the final product. The product is also suitable for vegetarian and vegan diets and is guaranteed free of GMOs and allergens.
