B-vitamins play a broad spectrum of metabolic and immune enhancing roles. Deficiencies may effect immune response and disease resistance and are usually associated with adrenal exhaustion, fatigue, digestive problems, stress and chronic infections. This B-complex formula provides a balance of these vital nutrients that the body does not store but has to constantly replace. Since the body does not store B vitamins, anything it can’t use is eliminated (this explains why urine may be darker). We need to be constantly replacing these nutrients that fuel so much chemistry in the body,
For example: B-1 (thiamine) and (B-3 (niacin) are two ingredients the body uses to produce hydrochloric acid for digestion. B-2 (riboflavin) is involved in cell respiration and a cell’s ability to produce heat and energy. It also helps with antibody response and feeding the thymus. B-5 (calcium Pantothenate) is for the transport and breakdown of triglycerides and cholesterol. B-6 (pyridoxine) is a catalyst and coenzyme for many of the body’s chemical processes, along with synthesis of amino acids, absorption of B-12 and production of antibodies and red blood cells.
B-12 (cyanocobalamin) is important for cell growth and division as well as the transport and use of folic acid to build red blood cells: it also contributes to the ability of immune lympocytes to destroy bacteria.
