Supportive Function: A total (hypoallergenic) formula that employs the synergistic action of all the B vitamins; additionally, it is boosted with choline and inositol, which are vitamin-like substances that participate in fat metabolism. People who are exposed to stressful situations or who have a poor dietary intake may choose to supplement with B-Complex.

When is a B-Complex Formula helpful? Fatigue, depression, stress, glucose control, skin/hair/eyes/ and mouth problems, anxiety, insomnia, hyperactivity, PMS, menopausal symptoms, alcohol withdrawal, and long-term antibiotic application.
Clinical Applications Research: The B vitamins help give us the energy to function. They are known as the "catalytic spark plugs" of the body; they catalyze many biochemical reactions because of their role as Coenzymes. The B vitamins are water-soluble (easily eliminated from the body) and must be constantly replenished. Bacteria in the large intestine can make most B vitamins in the body. A refined diet high in sugar, coffee, alcohol and refined flour can deplete the B vitamins, and long-term antibiotic therapy can reduce the population of beneficial bacteria that normally makes B vitamins in the large intestine.

Brain Food: The B vitamins are also important for the synthesis of our brain neurotransmitters, which are chemical signals that our brain uses to carry out physiological functions. The B vitamins are needed, for instance, for the synthesis of the neurotransmitters dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin. Administration of B vitamins B-1, B-2, and B-6, in a 4-week randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study resulted in trends of greater improvement in scores on ratings of mental well-being and cognitive tasks, and researchers suggested the results "offer preliminary support for further investigation of B-complex vitamin augmentation” in addressing mental well-being (Bell IR et al. J Am Coll Nutr. 1992; 11(2): 159-63).

Glands/Organs: The B vitamins are also essential for the proper functioning of the endocrine glands, most notably the adrenals and the thyroid. The B vitamins are needed for healthy liver functioning, and the liver is one of the highest concentrated areas of B vitamins. The organ we know as the skin depends on B vitamins for its healthy appearance. The B’s are also essential for hair, eyes and mouth; a deficiency of the B’s can manifest in patchy scaly skin around the mouth area. They are also necessary for normal functioning of the nervous system, and essential for maintenance of muscle tone in the gastrointestinal tract.

Glucose Control: Just as the B vitamins are used to make ATP (energy) from glucose, they are involved in every step of glucose metabolism, and are therefore helpful in regulating blood glucose levels.
Contraindications: Vitamin B-6 in amounts > 200 mg/day can possibly cause symptoms of neuropathy.
