Natural Factors Active B Complex is a one-a-day formula featuring highly bioactive essential B vitamins for effective support of healthy energy metabolism and nervous system function. B vitamins are vital for the release of energy from food and for healthy nerves and restful sleep, especially during times of stress.
Natural Factors Active B Complex one-a-day formula is suitable for vegetarians and ideal for energy support, especially during stressful times. Genetic differences in nutrient metabolism make it difficult for some people to assimilate standard forms of B vitamins, which may also be excreted before the liver can convert them. This balanced formula provides meaningful amounts of eight essential B vitamins in their biologically active forms, which don’t require conversion by the liver before they can be absorbed and utilized.
Active B Complex contains Quatrefolic® (a coenzyme form of folate as L-5-methyltetrahydrofolic acid), riboflavin 5’ phosphate sodium (a coenzyme form of vitamin B2), pyridoxal 5-phosphate (a coenzyme form of vitamin B6), and methylcobalamin (a coenzyme form of vitamin B-12). In addition, it contains benfotiamine (a lipid soluble form of thiamine) providing superior absorption of vitamin B1.
B vitamins are essential for the conversion of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins into energy and are required daily as they are water soluble and easily depleted by stress, poor diet, certain prescription medications, alcohol, and smoking. B vitamins are vital for healthy tissue and red blood cell formation; for the synthesis of brain chemicals which support mood, nerves, and sleep; for healthy skin, hair, nails, and eyesight; and for maintaining healthy levels of cholesterol, blood sugar, and homocysteine.
