    P5p ban


    Whatever happened to the p5p ban? Years ago I read about pharmaceutical companies and the FDA working together to take coenzymes like p5p off the market so they could capitalize off of them. I know u can get prescription p5p methyl b12 and methyl folate but I am still able to buy p5p as a supplement... Anyone have some info for me?

    A quick google search showed me 37 places to buy Now Foods P5P, as well as a couple of other brands of it. I'm not familiar with what it is, but it seems to be readily available.

    Just be glad they didn't ban it! Although I stocked up back in the day just to be on the safe side

    The Alliance for Natural Health helped to fight off the ban and the FDA. They are a group worthy of our support IMO. They are constantly monitoring the FDA for illegal actions like banning nutrients so Big Pharma can profit from them.

    IDK but I just ordered some, gonna give it a try for the first time. I've had it in coenzyme b-complex blends but never by itself.
