Health Benefits at a Glance:
Get the most of one of nature’s best metabolism and energy supporters: Vitamin B. Our BioActive Complete B-Complex offers a wide spectrum of the benefits that different types of Vitamin B can provide in just two vegetarian capsules - and that at a much higher potency than many regular Vitamin B supplements. From metabolic support to supporting heart- and nerve health, the versatility of Vitamin B makes it a true nutritional wonder. BioActive Complete B-Complex contains all of the many health benefits associated with Vitamin B in a single formula.
Why it Works:
Your body needs B vitamins to help release energy from the foods you eat, such as carbohydrates, fat and protein. In other words, B vitamins help to optimize the conversion from foods to energy in your system [1-3]. BioActive Complete B-Complex packs a high-potency punch of different types of Vitamin B, making sure that you can get all the benefits that Vitamin B can provide your body. It provides a high potency at dosages that are scientifically studied and formulated with bioactive forms of every single nutrient found in BioActive Complete B-Complex, which ultimately can help inhibit Vitamin B Deficiency and provide you with an unparalleled product.
The Science Behind the Product:
Vitamins participate in many critical metabolic functions in the body. Folic acid and Vitamin B12 play a role in red blood cell production .BioActive Complete B-complex can help to maintain proper organ function and provide other important benefits. This is why you should choose this vitamin B complex to receive the ideal dose of daily B-vitamins.
BioActive Complete B-Complex contains:
- Thiamine/Vitamin B1 - which can help convert carbohydrates into usable energy for your body.
- Riboflavin/Vitamin B2 - which is converted to its active form called riboflavin-5'-phosphate which the body uses for energy production.
- Niacin/Vitamin B3 - which can support healthy energy transfer reactions within the cells. It can also affect healthy metabolism of glucose, fat and alcohol. Furthermore, it can also support healthy cholesterol levels.
- Pantothenic Acid/Vitamin B5 - which can support synthesis of (hemoglobin), hormones, neurotransmitters,the oxidation of carbohydrates and fatty acids.
- Pyridoxine HCI & Pyridoxal 5'-phosphate/Vitamin B6 - which can affect amino acid and fat metabolism positively.Along with Vitamin B5, it can also support neurotransmitter and hemoglobin synthesis. Additionally, B6 also plays a role in gluconeogenesis, the formation of glucose from non-carbohydrate sources.
- Biotin - which plays a role in metabolism of fatty acids. It also plays a role in maintaining metabolic homeostasis or the balance between your body's many unique chemical pathways and processes.
- Folate - which can help to maintain red blood cell production within normal range. It can also help your body make and maintain healthy DNA. Furthermore, BioActive Complete B-Complex contains the compound para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA), which can encourage synthesis of folic acid.
- Vitamin B12 - which is required for healthy nerve cell activity and promotes heart health [4-7].
- Inositol - which is vital for calcium and insulin signal transduction.
