Basic B Complex consists of a group of eight water-soluble compounds: thiamine (vitamin B1) riboflavin (vitamin B2) niacin (vitamin B3) pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) pyridoxine (vitamin B6) cobalamin (vitamin B12) folate and biotin. Although each B vitamin is chemically distinct they often work together in various biochemical functions throughout the body &ndash from cellular energy production to healthy red-blood-cell formation to healthy neurological function.* Most B vitamins with the exception of vitamin B12 are not stored in the body; consequently they must be acquired daily from the diet in order to maintain optimal health.*
Supplementing with active B vitamins is extremely important to everyone especially individuals who may not be able to convert non-active vitamins to their active forms in the liver because of compromised liver function poorly functioning enzymes digestive disturbances or age.* Dietary supplements containing these active cofactors have enhanced bioavailability ensuring the body gets the nutrients it needs.*
Thorne's Basic B Complex contains the entire B-complex including the activated forms of vitamin B2 (riboflavin 5'-phosphate) vitamin B6 (pyridoxal 5'-phosphate) folic acid (folinic acid and L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate) and vitamin B12 (adenosylcobalamin and methylcobalamin) as well as 80 mg choline citrate. Although choline is often grouped with the B vitamin family it is not officially a B vitamin.
