Vitamins Advanced B Complex - Product description
What is Advanced B Complex?
The B-complex is an officially recognized grouping of eight essential vitamins. Some sources dispute that number, claiming that there are in fact nine or ten (or more) vitamins within the B-complex, yet within most official, academic, and scientific circles, the number is generally accepted as eight, and these are:
• Vitamin B1 (thiamin)
• Vitamin B2 (riboflavin)
• Vitamin B3 (niacin)
• Pantothenic acid
• Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine)
• Folic acid (folate)
• Vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin)
What does Advanced B Complex do?
Primary Uses: Collectively, these vitamins are responsible for maintaining healthy cellular processes such as the metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates and fats, and they act as co-enzymes for pathways involved in detoxification. B vitamins are used up more quickly under stress, so the need for B vitamins increases during stressful periods. Secondary Uses: Advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) are formed when the proteins in our bodies are exposed to sugar without the mediating action of coenzymes. The result is that those proteins undergo a reaction known as glycation, and these reactions hinder the function, and damage the structure, of proteins. They have also been linked to many progressive diseases of aging. AGE formation can lead to harmful inflammatory and autoimmune conditions, and glycation plays a role in vascular disease, erectile dysfunction, kidney disease, joint inflammation, loss of skin elasticity, cataracts, retinopathy, neuropathy, cognitive impairment, impaired wound healing, urinary incontinence, symptoms related to hyperglycemia and cardiovascular problems. The proper functioning of the B complex of vitamins is essential in delaying the onset of AGEs, with B1 playing a leading role.
Who should use Advanced B Complex?
In our high stress world, most people would benefit from taking a B complex. Those with hyperglycemia, who are concerned with anti-aging, who have a vitamin B deficiency, or who
have known genetic mutations and cannot convert inactive
B vitamins to their active coenzymeforms, may benefit from taking Advanced B Complex.
