Combination of B-vitamins in their most active forms
Includes the body’s preferred active forms of vitamins B6, and B12, riboflavin and folate
Assists with the metabolism of proteins, fat and carbohydrates
Helps in normal growth and development and in the formation of red blood cells
Helps to prevent thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B6, folate, vitamin B12, biotin and pantothenic acid deficiency
Each single-capsule serving of Active B Complex provides the adult Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for the entire B-vitamin family, including thiamine, riboflavin, niacinamide, pantothenic acid, vitamin B6, biotin, folate and vitamin B12. Active B Complex uses the preferred active forms of vitamins B2 (riboflavin-5′-phosphate), B6 (pyridoxal-5′-phosphate), folate (Metafolin?), and B12 (methylcobalamin). Metafolin? is a calcium salt of L-methylfolate, the primary active form of folate within the body. In comparison with folic acid, L-methylfolate appears to have a significantly higher bioavailability. For example, in healthy women supplemented with an equivalent amount (~400 mcg) of either L-methylfolate or folic acid for 24 weeks, red blood cell folate concentrations were significantly higher in women that received the L-methylfolate supplmement.1
