B-complex vitamins have many important overall functions:1,6
- Essential for energy production
- DNA synthesis and proper cell function
- Facilitate methylation
- Important for proper digestive tract function
- Promote healthy nerves, hair, skin, and eyes
- Boost immune system function
- Help reduce physical and emotional stress and promote relaxation
Ray & Terry's B-Complex 100 contains a balance of 11 B Vitamins. The proper balance usually includes equal amounts of B1, B2, B3, B6, choline, inositol, pantothenic acid, and PABA, and equal smaller amounts of B12, folic acid, and biotin. It is important that the formula includes a balanced amount of each nutrient to avoid competition for absorption of one vitamin over another in the intestines.
B vitamins are water-soluble and are not stored by the body, so we need to take in these nutrients on a daily basis.4 With age, many people experience a decreased absorption of B vitamins. Sustained release tablets are designed for better bioavailability because they release nutrients over time, giving the body a better chance to absorb the vitamins instead of flushing them through the system quickly.
The B vitamins have a wide margin of safety and usage rarely causes toxicity. Ray & Terry recommend B vitamins to help maintain overall health and to promote longevity.
