B Complex contains the entire spectrum of B vitamins to support adrenal and neurological functions. It features activated and/or methylated forms of vitamins B2, B6, and B12. Thiamine is in the form of benfotiamine, a fat soluble, more physiologically active form of thiamine. Folate as Metafolin in this formula which is patented and proven to have greater stability, solubility, and bioavailability over folic acid often found in common dietary supplements.

The water-soluble B vitamins have to be absorbed in the small intestine and then go to the liver where they are bio-transformed into their active coenzyme forms. B Complex contains vitamins B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B6 (pyridoxine), and B12 (methylcobalamin) in their physiologically-active form making them easier to absorb and “ready-for-use.”
Folate is provided as 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF), which bypasses metabolic steps to folate bioactivity. Despite research showing that folic acid and 5-MTHF have equivalent bioavailability and that supplementation with large amounts of folic acid can “force” its conversion to the more active form, 5-MTHF may be the preferred form to replenish folate.This may be especially applicable to those with digestive challenges or genetic variations in folate metabolism.
Folate is stored in small amounts in red blood cells (RBC), and RBC folate has been shown to be higher after supplementation with 5-MTHF compared to folic acid.
