 Vitalabís B100 Complex

Description

Vitalab's B100 Complex is specially formulated to provide a gradual release of B-complex vitamins over a prolonged period of time. The B-complex includes the essential water-soluble vitamins thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), niacin (vitamin B3), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxine (vitamin B6), biotin, folic acid and vitamin B12, as well as the nonessential vitamins choline, inositol and PABA. The combined actions of the B complex vitamins help support each vitamin's individual effects.

Vitalab's dynamic sustained release formula provides a continuous release of B-complex vitamins over time. Steady levels of B-complex vitamins remain in the bloodstream, continuously supporting many body functions vital for optimum health. Vitamin B6 is required for the production and breakdown of amino acids. Vitamins B5 and B12, folic acid, choline and inositol are essential for the formation of all the cells in our body, as well as DNA (genetic material). Vitamins B1, B2, B3, and B5 work together to enhance energy and form the fuel the body runs on - adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Furthermore, vitamins B12, B6 and folate help control blood levels of the toxic metabolite homocysteine. Homocysteine can damage blood vessels and increase the risk for heart disease and other chronic illnesses.

B-complex deficiencies, particularly vitamins B12 and B6, are among the most common nutrient deficiencies. Certain diets, such as weight loss, vegetarian or very poor diets can increase the risk of B-complex dietary deficiencies. People at higher risk for B-complex deficiencies include the elderly, alcoholics, and people who can't absorb vitamins from foods. Vitamin B-Complex supplementation is often recommended for older adults, vegetarians and vegans.

Taking a daily B-complex supplement such as Vitalab's B100 Complex helps enhance energy, promote healthy cells, support amino acid activity, prevent B-Complex deficiencies and maintain optimum health.


Pros

Vitalab's B100 Complex is offered in sustained release tablets formulated to dissolve slowly and release B-complex vitamins over time. A great advantage is that the sustained release tablets keep steadier levels of vitamin B-complex in the bloodstream than instant-release formulations. You'll get more value for your money with Vitalab's B100 Complex.

Studies have found that B-Complex vitamins have numerous benefits including:

  • Enhances energy levels
  • Promotes healthy cells formation
  • Aids in DNA (genetic material) formation
  • Supports amino acid activity
  • Prevents B vitamins deficiencies
  • Lowers toxic homocysteine levels (high homocysteine levels increase the risk for chronic diseases including heart disease and dementia)

Cons

This supplement has equal amounts of the B-complex vitamins at 100 mg each (except for biotin at 100 mcg, folic acid at 400 mcg and vitamin B12 at 100 mcg). A large dose (100 mg) of an individual B-vitamin may be recommended for certain conditions, such as a deficiency. However, it has not been scientifically confirmed if you need to take large doses of all the B-complex vitamins to avoid an imbalance or to provide health benefits.

Since the B-complex vitamins are water soluble, the excess vitamins not absorbed by the body are excreted. Many multivitamin-mineral supplements include B-complex vitamins at lower dosages, along with the rest of the essential vitamins and minerals. A good quality multivitamin-mineral supplement that includes all of the B-complex vitamins may be a better investment for you.

I am 35 yrs old and I have lot of health related problems. I try to eat regularly, take healthy food, drink water, exercise, etc, but I never seem to have enough energy. I started taking this product "B-100 Complex" supplement recently. I noticed a great difference almost immediately. It made me feel a lot less tired and a lot more energetic! I even noticed that I was needing less sleep. I seem to have more of a desire to do house hold work, and I'm enjoying the day instead of waiting for the night time so I can hit the sack... I recommend everyone to try out this B-100 Complex product and see the difference for yourself!! :-)
