FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Vitamin B-complex including vitamin C is a new formula containing B-vitamins at or above 100% RDA. Energy levels are boosted naturally in an effective and safe method. Each B-vitamin is sufficiently absorbed in such a manner without depleting the levels of other vitamins. 250mg of vitamin C are included with the Vitamin B ingredients to aid the energy boost..
The brain and nervous system are primarily nourished by the B vitamins. These nutrients are important to the body living on a diet of high refined foods and living a life filled with high stress.
Many of the bodily systems including the cardiovascular system are benefited by Vitamin C. Collagen molecules, created by Vitamin C, are necessary for adequate functioning of the cardiovascular system. Vitamin C is an antioxidant as an important nutrient.
B complex vitamins play many roles in the human body, but primarily they nourish the brain and nervous system. A diet high in refined foods or a life full of stress puts a greater demand on the body for these important nutrients.
Vitamin C benefits many systems in our bodies, particularly the cardiovascular system. It is integral to the production of collagen molecules that provide the stability necessary for proper cardiovascular function and is an important antioxidant nutrient.

Q: What vitamins and minerals are synergistic with the B vitamins?
A: B-vitamins increase energy metabolism. This may increase free radical production and facilitate a need for more antioxidant compounds like: vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E and selenium.
Take one tablet once per day with any meal and with water.
Q: Can I supplement with this product if I am already taking a multivitamin?
A: Taking extra doses of B-vitamins have been found to be very beneficial. You can certainly take the B Complex in addition to a multivitamin.
Q: Is there such a thing as too much vitamin B?
A: B-vitamins are water-soluble and so, for the most part, have no upper intake levels.
All the B vitamins are related closely in function, a deficiency of one can result in the malfunction of the remainder of the B vitamins. This class of vitamins all aid in energy metabolism. B vitamins also work with essential enzymes that break down fats, carbohydrates, and proteins.
Vitamin B1, thiamin, was the first B vitamin ever discovered. Your body uses it to process fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. Every cell in your body needs thiamin to make adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, the body's main energy-carrying molecule. The heart, in particular, has considerable need for thiamin in order to keep up its constant work.
Riboflavin, also known as vitamin B2, is an essential nutrient required for life. This vitamin works with two enzymes critical to the body's production of ATP. Vitamin B2 is also used to process amino acids and fats, and to activate vitamin B6 and folate.
Vitamin B3 is required for the proper function of more than 50 enzymes. Without it, your body would not be able to release energy or make fats from carbohydrates. It is also used to make sex hormones and other important chemical signal molecules. Vitamin B3 comes in two principal forms: niacin (nicotinic acid) and niacinamide (nicotinamide). High-dose niacin is principally used for lowering cholesterol.
Pantothenic acid (Vitamin B5) is used to make proteins as well as other important chemicals needed to metabolize fats and carbohydrates. Pantothenic acid is also used in the manufacture of hormones, red blood cells, and acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter (signal carrier between nerve cells).
Vitamin B6, pyridoxine, plays a major role in making proteins, hormones, and neurotransmitters. Mild deficiency of vitamin B6 is common. There's good evidence that adequate intake of vitamin B6 may help in lowering homocysteine and aid in the prevention of heart disease.
Biotin, Vitamin B7, plays an important role in metabolizing the energy we get from food. Biotin assists four essential enzymes that break down fats, carbohydrates, and proteins.
Inositol, unofficially referred to as "vitamin B8" is present in all animal tissues, with the highest levels in the heart and brain. It is part of the membranes (outer linings) of all cells, and plays a role in helping the liver process fats as well as contributing to the function of muscles and nerves.
Folate, vitamin B9, plays a critical role in many biological processes. It participates in the crucial biological process known as methylation, and plays an important role in cell division: without sufficient amounts of folate, cells cannot divide properly.
Vitamin B12, an essential nutrient, is also known as cobalamin. The "cobal" in the name refers to the metal cobalt contained in B12. Vitamin B12 is required for the normal activity of nerve cells, and works with folate and vitamin B6 to lower blood levels of homocysteine, a chemical in the blood that is thought to contribute to heart disease.
