Recommended dose 1 capsule daily.
It is important to take B vitamins as a complex, and not just individual B vitamins. B vitamins work together in various functions including cellular energy, red blood cell formation and neurological function. It is extremely important to take B vitamins daily because they are water soluble and the body does not store them (except for B12). Active B Complex™ provides a full-complement of essential B-complex vitamins in high potency amounts.
Activated, coenzyme forms provide optimum B complex vitamin support for individuals who may have difficulty metabolizing standard supplemental forms of B vitamins. Inclusion of Metafolin®* L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate (L-5-MTHF), a bioactive form of folate, ensures more immediate effects on metabolism than folic acid, the form of folate commonly used in fortified foods and supplements. Activated vitamin B12 as methylcobalamin enhances B12 absorption and bioavailability. Benfotiamine, the lipid-soluble form of thiamine, is also included together with active forms of riboflavin and vitamin B6.
Active B Complex™ provides a full-complement of eight essential B-complex vitamins in high potency amounts. Activated, coenzyme forms provide optimum B complex vitamin support for individuals who may have difficulty metabolizing standard supplemental forms of B vitamins.
Signs that you may be deficient in B Vitamins: Irritability, sugar cravings, insomnia, thyroid issues, confusion, constipation, depression, diarrhea, dizziness, insomnia, memory loss, poor appetite, anemia, low progesterone or low estrogen, hair loss, numbness and tingling, and more.
B9 – Bioactive Folic Acid. Supports cardiovascular and neurological function. Excellent source of folic acid for pregnant women. Inclusion of Metafolin®* L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate (L-5-MTHF), a bioactive form of folate, ensures more immediate effects on metabolism than folic acid, the form of folate commonly used in fortified foods and supplements. The special form of folate used (L-5-MTHF) is the most biologically active form available. This form directly activates the proliferation of neural stem cells, and helps with the development and repair of the nervous system. As we age it is vital that the nervous system is nourished properly. Inferior B vitamins usually have folic acid in a form that must be converted to L-5-MTHF. Many people cannot efficiently convert the inactive folic acid into the active form.
B12 – Cobalamin. Activated vitamin B12 as methylcobalamin enhances B12 absorption and bioavailability. B12 is essential for DNA synthesis and proper nervous system function. Supports healthy digestion, red blood cell metabolism and the breakdown of fat for energy. Beneficial for memory loss, insomnia, moodiness, ringing in ears, weakness, depression, and decreased progesterone in women.
B1 – Benfotiamine, the lipid-soluble form of thiamine. Helps the body adapt to stress, metabolism thyroid hormones, aldosterone, and acetylcholine. Supports proper nerve function and energy production in the body.
B2 – Riboflavin. Supports healthy eyes, tissue repair, the production of antibodies and energy production.
B3 – Niacin. Used by the body in over 40 chemical reactions. Beneficial for cholesterol and triglycerides: lowers LDL cholesterol, lowers triglycerides and raises HDL cholesterol. Supports adrenal gland function and is used in the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats.
B5 – Pantothenic Acid. Supports the body’s metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Helps with wound healing, production of antibodies, fatty acid production/transport, and used to produce red blood cells and stimulate the adrenal gland.
B6 – Pyridoxine. Detoxifies chemicals and helps support connective tissue strength. Needed to make several neurotransmitters like serotonin. Helps with the production of stomach acid. Supports a healthy immune system.
B7 – Biotin. The body makes biotin in the GI tract. Antibiotics lower the amount of biotin in the body. Supports strong nails, energy metabolism, fatty acid synthesis, and increases insulin sensitivity. Beneficial for hair loss, dandruff, depression, nausea, reduced appetite and numbness or tingling.
