Combination of B-vitamins in their most active forms – Includes the body-s preferred active forms of vitamins B2, B6, folate, and B12.
- 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 vitamins B1, B2, B3, pantothenic acid B6, biotin, folate and B12. Active B Complex uses the preferred active forms of vitamins B2 (riboflavin-5–phosphate), B6 (pyridoxal-5–phosphate), folate (Metafolinﾨ), and B12 (methylcobalamin). Metafolinﾨ 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 02166 NPN 80012082 REFERENCES 1.
