B Vitamins Help Your Body, Mind Cope *

B vitamins are a nutrient-related family that works as a team. Nine B vitamins form a balanced complex to help keep the body functioning properly. Together they support metabolism, help increase energy, maintain healthy skin, hair and muscle tone, and enhance immune and nervous system function. *

Multiple Functions of B Vitamins

Science has proven the brain needs B vitamins to function correctly and the heart needs B vitamins to stay healthy. In fact, just about every organ and process within the body requires at least one form of B vitamin.

All of the B vitamins play a role in metabolism, while some also protect the nervous system. Vitamins B6 (pyridoxine), B12 (cobalamin) and folic acid (B9) are especially known to influence neural functioning.

B12 Plays Important Role in Memory

B12 appears to protect the brain against age-related problems. A lack of B12 most often occurs among older adults because the body’s ability to absorb it from food declines with age.

Research shows promise that large doses of B6, B12 and folate given for two years slow progression of mild cognitive impairment in the elderly.

What role do the low levels of vitamin B12 that are common among the elderly actually play in memory loss? Finnish researchers tracked 271 people ages 65 to 79 for seven years and discovered supplementation with B12 reduced the risk of developing Alzheimer’s for most of the subjects. *

Smart Moves

Folic acid supplements may help prevent the neurologic deterioration that occurs in Parkinson’s disease. Brazilian scientists find that homocysteine levels are 30 percent higher in Parkinson’s patients than in controls, and folic acid deficiency is the major determinant of that increase. *

Mood Buffer

Low blood levels of B6, B12 and folate also are linked to depression in people of all ages. A large study in Spain linked the prevalence of depression with low folate intake among men who smoke and among men with low anxiety levels. Among women, depression manifested in those with low B12 intake. *

‘B’ Sharp

Even among healthy males in the prime of life, a high-dose B- complex vitamin and mineral supplement may have cognitive and mood benefits. In a randomized, double-blind trial, most men who got the supplement for 33 days rated themselves less subject to stress and did better on a range of tests assessing mood, mental well-being and cognitive performance during intense mental processing. The vitamins may protect against mental fatigue in tasks requiring high levels of attention and executive control. *

ALTRUM Dealers – Make Sure to Test Your Websites

Online sales of ALTRUM products is one of the best ways Dealers earn income and commission credits, so it’s vital Dealers provide accurate links from their websites to the ALTRUM website. Using the correct computer code on the links to, and its pages, is the only way Dealers can be sure to receive credit for their customers’ orders.

Some Dealers may be using an outdated linking code, which would prevent them from receiving credit for their customer’s orders.

Dealers will benefit by periodically checking to make sure the links they provide from their websites to AMSOIL, ALTRUM and AGGRAND are correct. Last year’s links no longer work from Dealers’ websites and Dealers should update the links they provide immediately to make sure they are receiving credit when their customers order ALTRUM products.

The link Dealers need to provide on their own websites must contain their ZO number in order for them to receive the credit for customers’ orders. Here is a clarification of website linking codes:

(where XXXXXX = Dealer’s ZO#)

(where XXXXXX = Dealer's ZO#)

Comparison of the two links shows “/redirect.cgi?” is the portion of the link that is not valid. The correct link now goes directly to the specific corporate catalog “/catalog.aspx?”

With the correct linking code, Dealers can link to any page on the ALTRUM website and their ZO transfers to AMSOIL INC. as the referring Dealer. The correct linking code can be found in the AMSOIL INC. Dealer Zone by clicking in the “Services” tab, “Dealer Websites,” then click on “Link your site.” Here Dealers find the specific linking code for each of the corporate websites to assure they receive credit for their customers’ purchases.

Dealers can check to make sure their links are sending customers to the website by clicking on the link on their websites and looking at the address when they arrive at If the link is correct, the page should contain the Dealer’s ZO number in the page address.


AGGRAND Launches Wildlife Food Plot Video

AGGRAND Food Plot Formula

AGGRAND recently launched the Wildlife Food Plot video as part of its ongoing Education Series.

Wildlife food plots enhance the habitat by providing a variety of plants for consumption, as well as necessary cover for smaller animals and birds. A wildlife food plot offers a source of food in a concentrated area so animals do not need to forage over large areas.

The presentation gives tips on how to develop a wildlife food plot, including the recommended size and location, as well as soil care of the land.

AGGRAND Dealers can view this video by logging in to the AGGRAND Dealer Zone, clicking on the “Watch AGGRAND Videos” tab along the left column of the page and scrolling down to the Wildlife Food Plot video.
