The body’s natural active form for energy production and metabolism

The ACTIVE vitamin B’s utilize premium source ingredients such as methylcobalamin, Metafolin®, riboflavin-5-phosphate and pyridoxal-5-phosphate. These are in the body’s most preferred active forms, helping to provide support to energy production and metabolic processes. The vitamin B complex consists of vitamin B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin and niacinamide), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6 (pyridoxine), B7 (biotin), B9 (folate) and B12 (methylcobalamin). As co-enzymes, the B vitamins play an important role in energy production, helping to metabolize carbohydrates, fats and proteins.1 B vitamins also help in normal growth and development through the formation of red blood cells and tissue formation.2 B vitamins are not generally stored in the body in any appreciable amounts (with the exception of vitamin B12) as they are water-soluble substances – thus the requirement for vitamin B supplementation.

Comprehensive vitamin B complex formulation that includes a wide range of essential B vitamins optimal for nutrient needs.

Additional product info:
Riboflavin, also known as Vitamin B2, is an essential water-soluble B vitamin. It is a component of the coenzymes FAD and FMN, which are intermediates in many redox reactions, including energy production and cellular respiration reactions. (11, 12) Riboflavin-5-phosphate is a more active form, immediately bioavailable upon absorption (unlike Riboflavin which must be converted in order for the body to utilize it).(13, 14)
