Vitamin B-1 (as thiamine / Benfotiamine) An essential vitamin necessary for proper metabolism of sugar and starch to provide energy in the body. Thiamine also functions in the nerves, brain and heart, digestive and the whole nervous system, and is important for the maintenance of healthy, clear, luminous eyes, hair and skin.
Vitamin B2 (as riboflavin 5'-phosphate) Vitamin B2 helps the eyes by boosting Glutathione levels. Glutathione is an important antioxidant for the eye and is made in our bodies when the right nutrients are present. Glutathione levels are important in cataract, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and many ageing processes.
Vitamin B3 (Inositol hexinicotinate) The Inositol Hexanicotinate form of Niacin is absorbed intact and then hydrolzyed within the body to release free Niacin and Inositol. Inositol Hexanicotinate is metabolized more slowly than free Niacin - it does not reach maximum Blood Serum levels until approximately ten hours after its oral ingestion. Niacin is a critical essential coenzyme for anti-stress, helping the body in general healing. Niacin assists in the functioning of the nervous system; in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins; and in the production of hydrochloric acid for the digestive system.
Vitamin B5 (as Pantethine) Known as Pantothenic Acid, is the anti-stress vitamin (water-soluble) and stamina enhancer. This vitamin plays an important role in production of adrenal hormones (such as cortisone in the adrenal glands). Vitamin B5 is required for the formation of antibodies (immune system), and helps to convert carbohydrates, fats, and proteins into energy. Vitamin B5 is a component of coenzyme A, which is needed to carry out metabolic functions. Vitamin B5 helps to produce the neurotransmitters required for proper nerve and muscle performance. A deficiency of Pantothenic acid may cause fatigue, psoriasis, and headache. Vitamin B5 is often used to treat the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis; swelling, pain, and stiffness.
Vitamin B6 (as Pyridoxal 5 phosphate) Vitamin B-6 is comprised of three natural organic compounds; pyridoxal (Pyridoxal 5 phosphate), pyridoxamine and pyridoxine. Pyridoxal 5 phosphate is the bioactive metabolite of the coenzyme Vitamin B-6 involved in many important enzymatic reactions.
Vitamin B12 (Methylcobalamin) Methylcobalamin is an active coenzyme form of vitamin B12, an important cofactor in the enzyme methionine synthase, which is essential for recycling homocysteine and the formation of methyl donors involved in cardiovascular function, sleep, blood cell formation, and nerve function.
Folic Acid [VitaminB-9, M] (as Folicin,L-methylfolate) Folic acid AKA folate (the anion form) are forms of the water-soluble Vitamin B-9, which helps convert vitamin B12 to a coenzyme form, helps synthesize nucleic acids (DNA & RNA) essential for the growth and reproduction of all body cells, essential to the formation of red blood cells by its action on the bone marrow, and aids in amino acid metabolism.
Biotin [Vitamin-H] A water-soluble B vitamin acting as a co-enzyme to metabolise proteins, fats and carbs. Vitamin B7 or biotin is one of the most active biological substances known. Biotin is essential to the formation process of several enzymes and hormones produced in the pancreas, including insulin.
Choline (as Citrate/Bitartrate) Choline is an essential welltrient found in most plants and animals, one of the main components of lecithin in the form of phospholipid lecithin, utilized as a building unit, and is essential in some metabolic processes. Essential functions include: building and maintaining cell membranes, fat metabolism, cholesterol metabolism and preventing abnormal accumulation of fat in the liver, formation of Acetylcholine used in transmethylation reactions (precursors of methylated compounds, i.e. creatine, choline, and adrenaline), and improves brain function and memory retention.
Inositol [Vitamin B-8] (Inositol, Inositol hexinicotinate) Inositol is a key intermediate molecule of second messenger signal transduction pathways used by serotonergic, cholinergic, and noradrenergic neurons. Inositol is involved in signal transduction pathways involving the neurotransmitter serotonin.
Paba [Vitamin B-10] (Para Aminobenzoic Acid) Para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA) is a naturally occurring non-protein amino acid. PABA as a nutrient is sometimes called Vitamin Bx. In the body PABA functions aids in the assimilation of Pantothenic acid and as an intermediate in folic acid synthesis via bacteria in the colon and may be an essential nutrient whenever normal PABA synthesis by intestinal bacteria is insufficient.
Benfotiamine Benfotiamine is an active coenzyme derivative of thiamine in a fat-soluble form. Benfotiamine is an allithiamine, a unique class of thiamin-derived compounds present in trace quantities in roasted crushed garlic and other vegetables from the Allium genus (such as onions, shallots, and leeks). Benfotiamine's open-ringed structure makes it able to pass directly through cell membranes, readily crossing the intestinal wall and being taken straight into the cell.
