We’ve all stared at the cereal box label during breakfast and wondered what
words like riboflavin, folic acid and pyridoxine mean. And how many times have
we heard mom say, “eat your greens”? Turns out that what mom was talking about
is closely related to your morning reading material and they both involve
The B-complex vitamins are actually a group of eight vitamins that include
Thiamine (B1), Riboflavin (B2), Niacin (B3), Pyridoxine (B6), Folic Acid (B9),
Cyancobalamin (B12), Panthothenic Acid and Biotin. These vitamins are essential
for the breakdown of carbohydrates into glucose (this provides energy for the
body), the breakdown of fats and proteins (which aids in the normal functioning
of the nervous system), muscle tone in the stomach and intestinal tract, and
maintaining healthy skin, hair, eyes, mouth and liver. Doctors and nutritionists
agree that taking the B-complex vitamins, as a group is essential for overall
health. The b-complex vitamins together are a powerful tool in maintaining
overall health. Individually, they each have important roles and specific
targets to your body.
•Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) enhances circulation and assists in blood formation,
carbohydrate metabolism and the production of hydrochloric acid, which is
important for proper digestion. Thiamine also optimizes cognitive activity and
brain function and has a positive effect on energy, growth, appetite and
learning capacity. It is essential for maintaining muscle tone of the
intestines, stomach and heart.
•Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) is crucial in the production of energy for the body.
Riboflavin helps protect against free radical damage and aids in the formation
of antibodies and red blood cells. Vitamin B2 has antioxidant qualities and is
needed to maintain good vision, skin, nail and hair health.
•Vitamin B3 (Inositol Hexanicotinate, a form of Niacin) supports proper
circulation, healthy skin and aids in the functioning of the central nervous
system. Because of its role in supporting higher brain functions and cognition,
Vitamin B3 has been shown to play an important role in the treatment of mental
illnesses like schizophrenia. Adequate levels of Vitamin B3 are vital for the
proper synthesis of insulin and the sex hormones.
•Vitamin B5 (Calcium Pantothenate) promotes normal growth and development aids
in release of energy from foods and helps synthesis of numerous body materials.
Also been shown to stimulate wound healing, alleviate stress, aid allergies,
treat fatigue and retard aging.
•Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) is necessary for the synthesis and breakdown of amino
acids, the building blocks of protein. It has been found to aid in the formation
of antibodies, maintain the central nervous system, and help diminish signs of
PMS. Vitamin B6 also promotes healthy skin, reduces muscle spasms, leg cramps,
hand numbness and nausea.
•Vitamin B9 (Folic Acid) is important to pregnant women for protection against
neural tube defects in their unborn children. Vitamin B9, in combination with
B12 and Vitamin C is necessary for the breakdown of proteins and the formation
of hemoglobin, a compound in red blood cells that transports oxygen and carbon
dioxide throughout the body. Women on birth control pills and all women of
childbearing age as well as people suffering from heart disease and those taking
daily antibiotics should be taking at least 400mg of folic acid a day.
•Vitamin B12 (Cyanocobalamin) is crucial in preventing anemia. It aids Folic
Acid in regulating the formation of red blood cells and helps in the body’s
utilization of iron stores. Vitamin B12 also acts to prevent nerve damage,
maintains fertility, promotes normal growth and development of the fatty
sheathes that cover and protect nerve endings. It has also been linked to the
production of neurotransmitters that assist memory and learning.
•d-Biotin is required, like all the B-complex vitamins, for fat and protein
metabolism and in maintaining the effectiveness of immunity and gene function.
Biotin deficiency is most common in the elderly and diabetics.
For added health benefits, we've added Insotol, PABA, and Choline Bitartrate.
Insotol has been shown to help prevent hardening of the arteries and protects
the heart. PABA is necessary for the metabolism of amino acids and in the
formulation of blood. Choline Bitartrate is necessary for normal nerve and brain
