B-complex support with extra B6

  • unlike many B vitamin products, B Complex #6 contains the active forms of B vitamins for optimal absorption*
  • B-Complex #6 contains an optimal balance of essential B vitamins with extra vitamin B6 as pyridoxine and pyridoxal 5-phosphate
  • B-Complex #6 is not derived from yeast

Pyridoxine (vitamin B6) and its bioactive form, pyridoxal 5-phosphate (P5P), are essential for such processes as amino acid metabolism, neurotransmitter synthesis, and glycogen (storage sugar) breakdown.* They are also involved in heme synthesis (necessary for hemoglobin), conversion of tryptophan to niacin, and proper metabolism of fatty acids.*

Thornes B-Complex #6 supplies 250 mg of pyridoxine HCl, 10 mg pyridoxal 5-phosphate, and the bioactive forms of the other B vitamins in each capsule to ensure you get the most bioavailable B-complex available.*

B-Complex #6 also consists of a group of eight water-soluble compounds: thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), niacin (vitamin B3), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxine (vitamin B6), cobalamin (vitamin B12), folate, and biotin. Although each B vitamin is chemically distinct, they often work together in various biochemical functions throughout the body – from cellular energy production, to healthy red-blood-cell formation, to healthy neurological function.* Most B vitamins, with the exception of vitamin B12, are not stored in the body; consequently, they must be acquired daily from the diet in order to maintain optimal health.*

Supplementing with active B vitamins is extremely important to everyone, especially individuals who may not be able to convert non-active vitamins to their active forms in the liver because of compromised liver function, poorly functioning enzymes, digestive disturbances, or age.* Dietary supplements containing these active cofactors have enhanced bioavailability, ensuring the body gets the nutrients it needs.*
