Benefits of the B-Complex
Pantothenic Acid plays a role in the production of the adrenal hormones and is required by all cells. Pantothenic acid can be helpful in managing irregular moods and stress.
PABA (para-aminobenzoic acid) is instrumental in the assimilation of pantothenic acid and a deficiency may lead to irregular mood states, irritability and nervousness.
Vitamin B12 has been shown to enhance sleep patterns, allowing for more restful and refreshing sleep.
Inositol has a calming effect and a deficiency may lead to mood swings and irritability.
Thiamin and Niacinamide are needed for proper circulation.
Riboflavin is a necessary cofactor in the production of energy from carbohydrates, protein and fats.
Vitamin B6 is needed for proper metabolism of fat and cholesterol. It is also in the process of trans-sulfuration, a pathway that breaks down homocysteine to prevent its buildup in the bloodstream.
Folic Acid and Vitamin B12 are needed for the formation of blood cells which help increase capillary blood flow and are necessary to recycle homocysteine into methionine. Folic Acid is essential for protein metabolism and the repair of RNA and DNA.
Biotin and Choline assist in the metabolism of fat and cholesterol.
Inositol helps to maintain cholesterol levels within normal ranges.
Thiamin and Niacinamide are required for normal brain function, cognitive activity, and aid in energy production. Thiamin is also needed acetylcholine production, a neurotransmitter involved in learning and memory functions.
Vitamin B6 is needed for more than 100 enzymatic reactions in the body. Vitamin B6 is required for normal brain and nerve function, the synthesis of certain neurotransmitters, and the lipids that are part of the myelin sheath.
Vitamin B12 is utilized in the production and maintenance of myelin, the protective covering of the neurons.
Biotin supports healthy nerve tissue, aids in cell growth and fatty acid metabolism.
Choline insures the proper initiation and transmission of nerve impulses from the brain throughout the central nervous center.
