The B vitamins are essential for healthy nerves, skin, eyes, hair, liver, and mouth, as well as healthy muscle tone in the gastrointestinal tract and proper brain function. B-complex vitamins are coenzymes involved in energy production, proper functioning of both the peripheral and central nervous systems. Vitamins in this group are water soluble. Any excess is excreted and not stored in the body, so they must be replaced daily through proper diet or with a good supplement. B vitamins should always be taken together. We believe that this B-50 formula is one of the best ways to be sure you are consuming enough of these vital nutrients.
Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) enhances circulation and assists in blood formation,
carbohydrate metabolism, and the production of hydrochloric acid, which is
important for proper digestion. Optimizes cognitive activity and brain function.
Has a positive effect on energy, growth, normal appetite, and learning capacity
and is needed for muscle tone of the intestines, stomach and heart. Acts as
Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) is necessary for red blood cell formulation,
antibody production, cell respiration, and growth. Alleviates eye fatigue
and is important in the prevention and treatment of cataracts. It aids in
the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. Facilitates the use of
oxygen by the tissues of the skin, nails, and hair; eliminates dandruff; helps
the absorption of iron and vitamin B6.
Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide) is needed for proper circulation and healthy
skin. It aids in the functioning of the nervous system, in the metabolism
of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. It is involved in the normal secretion
of bile and stomach fluids and in the synthesis of sex hormones. Niacin lowers
cholesterol and improves circulation and is a memory-enhancer.
Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid) is known as the "anti-stress vitamin"
and plays a role in the production of the adrenal hormones and the formation
of antibodies, aids in vitamin utilization and helps to convert fats, carbohydrates
and proteins into energy. It is involved in the production of neurotransmitters.
It is also a stamina enhancer and prevents certain forms of anemia. It is
needed for normal function of the gastrointestinal tract.
Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine HCL) aids in maintaining sodium and potassium
balance, promotes red blood cell formation, is required by the nervous system,
needed for normal brain function and for the synthesis of the nucleic acids
RNA and DNA for normal cellular reproduction and growth. It plays a role in
cancer immunity and aids in the prevention of arteriosclerosis, inhibits the
formation of the toxic chemical homocysteine, and many other processes.
Vitamin B12 (Cyanocobalamin) is needed to prevent anemia. It aids in
cell formulation and cellular longevity, prevents nerve damage, maintains
fertility, and promotes normal growth and development by maintaining the fatty
sheaths that cover and protect nerve endings. Linked to the production of
acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that assists learning and memory.
