After all, there are scams that people obviously need to watch out for. And how can a person know if scam warnings, reviews or opinions on the internet are legitimate or not?

The XFactor Ingredient “Folate”

Another important B vitamin that is found in XFactor is Folate. Folate has been shown to be important for cell growth and metabolism. WebMD says that it has been shown that there are plenty of Americans that are deficient in Folate. 


Folate and Folic Acid supplements are common for pregnant women and for women who are trying to conceive. Folate “reduces the risk for birth defects of a baby’s brain and spine -- spina bifida and anencephaly -- by 50% to 70%” says WebMD. The same article also relates that Folate can also lower the risk of preeclampsia and early labor. It is commonly recommended that any woman at childbearing age should take a multivitamin or a Folate supplement, because they can help protect against birth defects that may form before a woman knows she’s pregnant.


Folate can be used as a measure to treat and prevent deficiencies that can cause types of anemia and other problems as well. When trying to treat these deficiencies it is recommended to use Folate along with Vitamin B12, another vitamin in XFactor.

The XFactor Ingredients “Thiamin”

Thiamin, a B vitamin found in XFactor, is almost commonly known as Thiamine and vitamin B1. Thiamin is known to be involved in “several enzyme functions associated with the metabolism of carbohydrates, branched-chain amino acids, and fatty acids,” says MIC; a Micronutrient Information Center based out of Oregon State University.


Severe lack of Thiamin can lead to many organ system problems, mostly in a disease called beriberi, explains MIC. Being deficient in Thiamin has been shown to go hand and hand with Alzheimer's disease. Other problems of insufficient levels of Thiamin include psychosis, fatigue, nerve damage, and weakness. Severe lack of Thiamin can even cause brain damage, says NLM

NLM (National Library of Medicine) says that the many foods that Thiamin is found in include “enriched, fortified, and whole grain products such as bread, cereals, rice, pasta, and flour, beef liver and pork, dried milk, egg, legumes and peas, nuts and seeds.”

The XFactor Ingredient “Inositol”

Inositol, a vitamin-like substance found in many plants and animals, is also found in the Plexus multivitamin XFactor.

The many uses of inositol include “diabetic nerve pain, panic disorder, high cholesterol, insomnia, cancer, depression, schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s disease, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism, promoting hair growth, a skin disorder called psoriasis, and treating side effects of medical treatment with lithium,” says WebMD.


WebMD explains that when used by the mouth inositol can be helpful for treating conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome, high levels of testosterone, high triglycerides, and high blood pressure.There’s also evidence that when a patient uses inositol by mouth for six weeks see drastic improvement in their Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD).

The XFactor Ingredient “Niacin”

Niacin, also referred to as Vitamin B3, is an important vitamin for overall good health, states WebMD. Niacin is commonly known as a cholesterol treatment. The vitamin has been proven to boost levels of good HDL cholesterol and lower the bad LDL cholesterol. Studies have also shown that Niacin can lower triglycerides just as well or better than most prescription drugs.


When prescribed, it can sometimes be prescribed with combinations of other supplements for cholesterol control such as Crestor, Lescol, or Lipitor, says WebMD. There’s also strong evidence Niacin can help to reduce atherosclerosis, or stiffening of the bones in some people. Also, for people who have already had a heart attack, Niacin has shown to reduce the risk of a second one, refers the same article.


More evidence shows that “it might help lower the risk of Alzheimer's disease, cataracts, osteoarthritis, and type 1 diabetes,” states WebMD. One serving of XFactor, or two capsules, has 20 mg of Niacin. This is right in line with the recommended servings per day.

The XFactor Ingredient “Riboflavin”

Riboflavin, a vitamin B found in XFactor, can be found in milk, meat, eggs, nuts, enriched flour, and green vegetables. Riboflavin can often be found with other vitamin B vitamins in vitamin B complexes, says WebMD.


Riboflavin is used to prevent low levels of itself, cervical cancer, and migraines. Other common things that Riboflavin is a common treatment for include blood disorders, burning feet syndrome, carpal tunnel syndrome, acne, and muscle cramps. Riboflavin can sometimes be suggested for eye disorders like cataracts or eye fatigue, refers WebMD.


WebMD also directly states that Riboflavin can be helpful in “boosting immune system function; maintaining healthy hair, skin, mucous membranes, and nails; slowing aging; boosting athletic performance; promoting healthy reproductive function; canker sores;memory loss, including Alzheimer's disease; ulcers; burns; alcoholism; liver disease;sickle cellanemia; and treating lactic acidosis brought on by treatment with a class of AIDS medications called NRTI drugs”




The XFactor Ingredient “Vitamin E”

Vitamin E is found in XFactor as d-alpha-tocopheryl acetate. A vitamin that dissolves in fat, Vitamin E is found in many vegetable oils, cereals, meat, poultry, eggs, fruits, vegetables, wheat germ oil, along with many other foods. It can even be used as a  supplement according to WebMD.


Vitamin E can be used to stop and control diseases of the heart, such as hardening of the arteries, heart attack, chest pain, leg pain due to blocked arteries, and high blood pressure says WebMD. Vitamin E is sometimes recommended for treating Diabetes and its complications and also preventing certain types of cancer such as lung, oral, colorectal, polyps, gastric, prostate, and pancreatic cancer, refers the same article.

Alzheimer’s and other dementias, Parkinson’s, night cramps, Restless Leg Syndrome, epilepsy and other diseases of the brain and nervous system can be treated with Vitamin E. WebMD also says that Vitamin E can also help with Huntington’s Chorea, and other disorders involving nerves and muscles.

“Women use vitamin E for preventing complications in late pregnancy due to high blood pressure (pre-eclampsia), premenstrual syndrome (PMS), painful periods, menopausal syndrome, hot flashes associated with breast cancer, and breast cysts,” says WebMD. The same article relates that Vitamin E can be used to help treat “cataracts, asthma, respiratory infections, skin disorders, aging skin, sunburns, cystic fibrosis, infertility, impotence, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), peptic ulcers, for certain inherited diseases and to prevent allergies.”

The XFactor Ingredient “Vitamin D”

Vitamin D is a vitamin, obviously, found in X Factor. It’s found in small amounts of more ‘rare’ foods, mostly fish. To make Vitamin D more common though it’s added to dairy products, cereals, and juices and these are said to be “fortified with Vitamin D,” according to WebMD.  The most common form of Vitamin D, though, is just through pure exposure to the sun. This is how the body gets 80-90% of its Vitamin D, but the rest comes from your dairy, juices, cereal, and Plexus products like X Factor.

vitamin d

Vitamin D is used to “treat” rickets. The treat is quoted because the way you actually get rickets, a disease commonly found in children characterized by the weakening, and distortion of the bones usually causing bow legs, is by not getting enough Vitamin D, says WebMD.  The same article relates that “ Vitamin D is also used for treating weak bones (osteoporosis), bone pain (osteomalacia), bone loss in people with a condition called hyperparathyroidism, and an inherited disease (osteogenesis imperfecta) in which the bones are especially brittle and easily broken.”

High blood pressure, high cholesterol, and other conditions of the hurt are commonly treated with Vitamin D. Other common things that are treated by Vitamin D include diabetes, obesity, muscle weakness, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, bronchitis, premenstrual system, and tooth and gum disease, says WebMD.
