B Vitamin Complex is a dietary supplement that acts as a coenzyme.
It is essential for people who are deficient in B vitamins such as the elderly, women (pregnancy, birth control pills), stressed.
The B complex of vitamins are coenzymes which are a vital element in most important metabolic reactions. They have an important part to play in producing energy, including the metabolism of lipids, carbohydrates and proteins. B vitamins are also important for blood cells, hormones and nervous system function.
Since B vitamins are only soluble in water, they are usually not stored in the body in significant quantities (with the exception of vitamin B-12). The body therefore needs a regular supply of B vitamins.
B-VITAMIN COMPLEX is vital for many people who have a B vitamin deficiency such as older people, women (in pregnancy or taking contraceptive pills), and people under stress.
Vitamin B supplementation is often indicated for many health problems such as nervous disorders, skin and hair related problems, anaemia or fatigue and cardiovascular disorders.
Thiamine (50 mg) : this is vitamin B1, which reduces the harmful effects of stress and improves well-being. It influences carbohydrate and fat metabolism, and energy from these can only be used in the presence of vitamin B1. It improves transmission of nerve signals and influences mood. It protects the cardiovascular system and the arteries. Daily requirements are significantly higher when breastfeeding, in pregnancy and for smokers.
Riboflavin (20 mg) : this is vitamin B2, which aids the conversion of carbohydrates, fats and proteins into essential energy, thereby restoring vitality. It is important for proper eye function and vision. It also has specific effects on conditions affecting the mouth, lips and tongue.
Niacin (50 mg) : this is vitamin B3, which has a vital role in producing energy, transmission of nerve signals and synthesis of fatty acids and certain hormones. It has calming, antidepressant and anti-migraine effects, and it is used to combat mental problems (emotional instability, persecution complex, feelings of insecurity). It has a preventative role in cardiovascular diseases (promoting oxygen transport).
Pantothenic acid (50 mg) : this is vitamin B5, which is vital for the production of energy from fats and carbohydrates and is involved in the formation of adrenocortical hormones. It improves resistance to stress, fatigue and infections (because it is involved in antibody synthesis). Many of its beneficial effects target epithelial cells, such as the skin (fungal infections, herpes), where it promotes scar formation. It acts in synergy with vitamin B8 to strengthen the hair and nails. It has anti-allergic, antiasthmatic, anti-psoriatic and calming effects.
Pyridoxine (20 mg) : This is vitamin B6, which is involved in degradation and synthesis of proteins and amino acids. It is involved in metabolism of fatty acids but also has an important role in the conversion of glycogen into glucose, thereby helping to supply energy to the body. It regenerates red blood cells and the skin (acne). It supports antibody production and in this way reinforces both the immune system and the nervous system. There is no doubt that it is linked to all the symptoms related to female hormones, such as the premenstrual syndrome, pregnancy (nausea) and the use of contraceptive pills.
Biotin (300 mcg) : This is vitamin B8, which is involved in metabolism of proteins, amino acids, fats and carbohydrates in order to supply energy to the body. It is beneficial in some nervous disorders, slows hair loss and stimulates the immune system in general. Biotin is useful in combating a large number of dermatological problems (acne, seborrhoea, eczema etc.).
Folic acid (400 mcg) : This is vitamin B9, which is useful in anaemia because of its involvement in synthesis of red blood cells and haemoglobin (in combination with vitamin B12). It is useful in emotional disorders. It has a very wide range of uses: treatment of general fatigue, depression, gout, ulcers, and as an immune stimulant. It provides protection against intestinal parasites and poisoning, and slows the loss of hair colour (in combination with vitamin B5).
Methylcobalamin (500 mcg) : This is vitamin B12, which is vital for the synthesis and regeneration of red blood cells and iron uptake, consequently making it a useful agent for treatment of anaemia. It is required for DNA synthesis and is needed to maintain a healthy nervous system. It is often used in children to stimulate appetite and growth, and as a tonic for older people.
Intrinsic factor (20 mg) : this is a protein produced by the cells of the gastric mucosa and it is essential to allow absorption of vitamin B12 from the intestines. An intrinsic factor deficiency can lead to a vitamin B12 deficiency. Some groups of people and certain older people are unable to produce intrinsic factor effectively.
