Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, and B7 are all required for the processes that convert foods into energy. This benefit is commonly conflated to that of caffeine, which is erroneous and disparaging to the true Vitamin B Complex benefits. For the Kreb’s Cycle (that turns macronutrients into the body’s fuel) to function at its highest level and efficiently convert food to energy, it requires the B vitamins. This enables sustained, healthy cellular energy production without a crash.*
Advanced Glycation End-Products (AGEs) are associated with numerous unpleasantries that come with aging, some of which show on the skin. AGEs are a byproduct of normal metabolic processes, and often proliferate in people with poor metabolic function (elevated blood sugar, etc.). Numerous studies indicate that benfotiamine (the synthetic variant of vitamin B1, thiamine, that is proven to have superior absorption), B6 (pyridoxamine), and B3 (niacin) help to inhibit AGE formation.*
From mood regulation — vitamin B6’s critical role in converting tryptophan to serotonin — to synthesizing neurotransmitters — B9 (folate) — the Vitamin B Complex benefits to the brain are numerous and wide-reaching. Multiple B vitamins, including vitamin B12, are necessary for making DNA.*
So many people have difficulty absorbing critical B vitamins, particularly folic acid, due to various genetic factors that are currently unknown. We use the forms of the vitamins that maximize the potential for absorption, notably Quatrefolic® Acid 5-MTHF, to ensure that everyone can benefit from our unique formulation.
B12 poses its own set of absorption challenges. Gastric acid decreases as we age, and with certain indigestion medications, compromise our ability to absorb B12. Bariatric surgery and certain types of anemia also prevent B12 absorption. Since Vitamin B12 occurs naturally only in animal products, vegetarians and vegans are prone to deficiency.
The B vitamins are water-soluble, which means that you can’t store any excess from traditional oral supplements.
Using patented technology, we wrap the Vitamin B Complex Plus in double-layered spheres (liposomes) that protect the nutrients through the digestive system and transport them into the bloodstream for absorption in the cells.
