B Complex for Stress and Energy Support

B Complex for Stress and Energy Support

Thorne’s Basic B Complex is anything but basic.

This isn’t your regular B complex from the grocery store.  If you’re serious about nutritional supplements, this is the B complex you want.

Basic B Complex contains the B vitamins your body needs to function optimally.  Rather than providing the cheapest, synthetic B vitamins in an imbalanced formula like most B complexes, this product supplies you with all the B’s in their most active (methylated) forms.  This means that your body can actually use them the way they were intended.

Additionally, Basic B Complex isn’t derived from yeast like so many other B vitamins on the market. It’s hypoallergenic and vegan. 

Why take a B complex?

B vitamins are essential catalysts for your energy systems.  Many people find that supplementing with a B complex improves their overall energy and supports mental emotional balance (neurological function) during times of stress.  They also ensure healthy red blood cell formation.

Best Uses Include:

  • Support and boost your energy
  • A perfect supplement to bolster a vegan or vegetarian diet
  • Helps with dealing with mental-emotional and physical stress

What’s in it?

The B vitamins in Basic B Complex are water soluble, so it can be used as directed without fear of oversupplementation. B vitamins aren’t readily stored in the body, hence it’s important to ensure a diet rich in B vitamins along with a supplement depending on your individual diet.  Plant based diets are lower in specific B vitamins like B12 and folate to some extent.

The B vitamins in this complex are supplied in their active forms.

  • Thiamine (B1)
  • Riboflavin 5’-phosphate (B2)
  • Niacin and niacinamide (B3)
  • Pantothenic acid (B5)
  • Pyridoxal 5’-phosphate (B6)
  • Methylcobalamin (B12)
  • 5-MTHF (L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate)(active folate)
  • Biotin
  • Choline (Not officially a B vitamin but is often grouped with the B vitamin family)

Having active forms of B vitamins is important because not everyone is readily able to convert non-active forms of B vitamins into their active forms, thanks to certain biochemical differences amongst us all.

Other factors that can impede one’s ability to convert B vitamins into their active form are digestive issues, aging, low stomach enzymes and sluggish or poor liver function.

If you’re going to supplement with B vitamins, Thorne’s Basic B Complex has everything you need -you’ll enjoy the balanced, hypoallergenic formula, the energy boost it provides and support for your nervous system.
