B Complex Plus includes eight B vitamins with active forms of vitamin B12, riboflavin, folate and B6. It helps to improve energy; healthy hair, skin and nails; and healthy functioning of the nervous system and digestive system.
L-5 methyltetrahydrofolate (L-5-MTHF), the active form of folate, is included in B Complex Plus to help support a fast metabolic response, which often is not the case with the synthetic folic acids that are commonly used in supplements. L-5-MTHF is particularly beneficial for supporting the neurological system’s requirements because it is the only form of folate that crosses the blood-brain barrier.
Coenzyme forms of vitamin B12, methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin, are used in this complex and can be readily absorbed by the body because these forms are actively involved in important enzyme reactions. B Complex Plus is made for optimal absorption with the cofactor choline.
Niacin helps skin, nerve and digestive system function, and is important for the conversion of food to energy. Niacin can also be beneficial when too much methylfolate is consumed: niacin binds methyl groups and also supports the normal breakdown of glutamate. B1, also known as Thiamine, plays an important role in metabolic reactions like the formation of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is needed by every cell of the body.
Healthy energy levels rely on Riboflavin, which also supports immune system function, healthy hair, skin and mucous membranes. Pyridoxal 5′-phosphate (P-5-P is known as the active “coenzyme” form of vitamin B6 and is used in B6-dependent enzyme functions. In fact, vitamin B6 and P-5-P are needed for the healthy activity of more than 100 enzymes!
Vitamin B5, pantothenic acid, assists other B vitamins in converting food into energy and is an important aspect of the body’s ability to produce various enzymes. Enzymes act as the catalyst for a number of biochemical reactions in the body.
Biotin supports healthy carbohydrate metabolism and is essential for healthy hair, skin and nail growth.
