B vitamins, functioning mainly as coenzymes and cofactors, are not stored by the body, so they require daily replenishment. Our body needs B vitamins to help release energy from the foods we eat, such as carbohydrates, fat, and protein. They are also crucial to the metabolic pathways that generate the cellular energy that the body needs to function.1-3
Physician's Series Complete B provides our body with the whole B-vitamins family that has extensive effects ranging from our metabolism, to our nervous system and heart health.
Benefits at a Glance:
- Provide potent and scientifically validated amounts of the B vitamins
- Promotes healthy metabolism of sugar, fat, and alcohol
- Encourages healthy nervous function, organ function, cognitive health, and more
Physician's Series understands the exacting standards that a practitioner needs when dispensing a product as part of his/her clinical practice.
Physician's Series Complete B is formulated to provide potent but safe and scientifically validated amounts of the B vitamins.
Vitamin B1 (thiamine) — Thiamine helps to release the energy from carbohydrates. It also supports healthy nervous system function, RNA and DNA production.4
Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) — Riboflavin helps convert nutrients into energy and provides antioxidative activity.5 It is also involved in the breakdown of homocysteine to reduce cardiovascular risks.
Vitamin B3 (niacin) — Niacin supports healthy energy transfer reactions. It affects healthy metabolism of glucose, fat, alcohol and cholesterol.6
Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) — Vitamin B5 helps produce haemoglobin, hormones, neurotransmitters, and plays a role in the oxidation of carbohydrates and fatty acids.7
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxal 5-phosphate) — Vitamin B6 affects amino acid and lipid metabolism. Along with B5, it also plays a role in neurotransmitter and haemoglobin synthesis. B6 is also involved in gluconeogenesis, the formation of glucose from non-carbohydrate sources.8 Pyridoxal 5-phosphate, as the bioactive form of vitamin B6, helps to reduce oxidative stress in the body.
Biotin — This B vitamin is a cofactor of enzymes involved in fatty acid metabolism, gluconeogenesis, and amino acid catabolism, and is essential in maintaining metabolic homeostasis.9-12
Folate (methyltetrahydrofolate) — Folate helps to maintain normal red blood cell production, and also helps your body make and maintain healthy DNA.13-16 The bioactive form of folic acid, methyltetrahydrofolate, is used instead so our body does not have to convert it before using it. This form of folate is up to seven times more bioavailable than folic acid. Para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA) is included to encourage folic acid synthesis.
Vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) — Vitamin B12 affects nerve cell growth and supports heart health by breaking down homocysteine in the body.17-20 And methylcobalamin B12 is the form that is biologically active in your brain.
Inositol — Although not a B vitamin, inositol is added as it is a primary component of phospholipids that make up the cellular membranes. Inositol is essential for calcium and insulin signal transduction.21-22
The contents of this formula are protected in a coated vegetarian capsule against the heat and humidity of a tropical climate. Thus product potency is assured.
Take 3 capsules after food daily in divided doses, or as recommended by your healthcare professional.
