PABA PABA (para amino benzoic acid) is a member of the vitamin b complex. It is often referred to as the anti-gray-hair vitamin, and studies have shown that some of the gray hair of persons given PABA was restored to the original color in 70% of the cases. Researchers have reported that extreme fatigue, skin rashes, or eczema can result from a deficiency of PABA. It is for this reason that the addition of PABA to the diet often helps to increase energy and to clear up or prevent eczema. And indications are that its use may also help to prevent old age texture of the skin.

PROTECTING YOUR THYROID In a sense, your first line of defense against hypothyroidism is to take a good multivitamin along with vitamin b complex and vitamin C supplements. Some cases of hypothyroidism may be treated in this way, without the affected person ever having to take thyroid supplements. On the other hand, if your thyroid problem is caused by something other than a vitamin deficiency, your body won't be able to make use of the vitamin supplements you are taking. In that case, you may need TH supplementation. Not only vitamin deficiencies sabotage your TH production.

Beyond its curative powers, its reputation as a powerful enhancer of health is being demonstrated in clinical research. Clinical effects include accelerated repair and regeneration of connective tissue, enhanced interferon and corticosteroid secretion, and increased lean body mass.

Food and Healing

This newfound centeredness is the result of the contractive effects of eating whole grains and beans, the nerve-calming action of the full vitamin b complex present in those foods, and the slow metabolizing of their complex carbohydrates. At the same time, avoiding foods that are more expansive and uncentering (sugar, large amounts of fruits, juices, and salads) reduces "spaciness" and unfocused thinking. Calmness sets in, we can say, as craziness dissipates for lack of fuel.
The right amount of whole grains in the diet will support resistance to stress (thanks to the vitamin b complex), endurance, steadfastness, and the capacity for steady work. Too much grain can make the body acidic, as meat would, unless it is accompanied by appropriate quantities of vegetables, seaweeds, or fruits. If it is not well chewed, grain can also cause flatulence and overweight. The saliva contains an enzyme called ptyalin, which initiates the breakdown of starches, and if that enzyme doesn't get a chance to act, the rest of the digestive process becomes much more laborious.

The chemical formula is C6 H5 N02 and this vitamin is an important part of the vitamin b complex. It works with the other B vitamins in converting the carbohydrates (sugars and starches) into energy, and it has been singled out as an important factor in the prevention of pellagra, the deficiency disease marked by lesions, swelling, itching and nervous disturbances. This vitamin, as well as the other B vitamins, works closely with the proteins and amino acids for good health.

Coconut flakes contain proteins, carbohydrates, and vitamin b complex. Effects Because of its low alcohol content, the palm wine obtained from the bleeding sap—even when consumed in large quantities—has stimulating, almost refreshing and invigorating effects that do, however, tend toward drunkenness. The effects of drinks fermented from the milk are different: "Fermented coconut milk has a high alcohol content: too much will result in toxic symptoms" (Udupa and Tripathi 1983, 64).

Vitamin E is beneficial as an anti-oxidant and a detoxifier. vitamin b complex is especially important for recovering alcoholics and drug addicts. Some alternate nutritionists have recommended that "PWAs" take enormous "megadoses" of some vitamins, in particular, vitamin C. They have recommended daily doses of 30, 40, or 50 grams of vitamin C per day. At such doses, vitamin C is no longer a food supplement, but a drug. I think this is not a good idea. For one thing, these recommendations reflect the erroneous notion that a virus is the cause of "AIDS", and that vitamin C will attack the virus.

At the outset of the attorney's therapy, I placed him on a high dosage of vitamin b complex. He took 100 mg of a multiple-B formula three times daily. This was, of course, a megadose of the nutrient. He responded almost immediately. His mood swings and irritability declined practically overnight, and within five days he was functioning better than he had in several months. I had not reversed the apparent disorder that had inhibited his utilization of B vitamins, but I had effectively compensated for it by vastly increasing his intake of B vitamins.
