Description: Balanced B-Complex 50mg 100t/Hypo-B 50mg 100t is available by Douglas Labs.
Balanced B-Complex supplies a balanced
formula of essential B vitamins as well as several other important
dietary components metabolically associated with the B vitamins.
A Dietary Supplement
Balanced B–complex may be a useful dietary adjunct for individuals wishing to supplement their diet with B vitamins.
As coenzymes, the B vitamins are
essential components in most major metabolic reactions. As
water-soluble substances, B vitamins are not generally stored in the
body in any appreciable amounts (with the exception of vitamin B-12).
Therefore, the body needs an adequate supply of B vitamins on a daily
basis. Vitamin B-1 (thiamin), vitamin B-2 (riboflavin), and niacinamide
are all essential coenzymes in energy production. Thiamin is required
for the energetics of the glycolytic and Citric Acid Cycle reactions.
is also related to nerve impulse transmission. Riboflavin is a
component of coenzymes FAD and FMN, which are intermediates in many
redox reactions, including energy production and cellular respiration
reactions. Niacin is a component of the coenzymes NAD and NADP, which
are also integral components of energy production reactions. Vitamin
B-6 dependent enzymes are required for the biosynthesis of many
neurotransmitters, including serotonin, epinephrine, and
Vitamin B-6, a coenzyme in amino acid
metabolism, is also necessary for the processing of homocysteine and
the conversion of tryptophan into niacin. Folic acid together with
vitamin B-12 serves as a methyl donor for biosynthetic reactions,
including the conversion of homocysteine to methionine. Optimum
metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats depends upon adequate
levels of biotin and pantothenic acid. Biotin is essential for many
metabolic carboxylation reactions, while pantothenic acid, as part of
Coenzyme A, is essential to energy production via the Citric Acid
Cycle. While not truly vitamins, choline, inositol, and
paraaminobenzoic acid are important, related nutrients to B vitamins.
serves not only as a methyl donor for homocysteine metabolism following
conversion to betaine, but also as a structural component of cellular
membranes as phosphatidylcholine and of the neurotransmitter
acetylcholine. Inositol aids in the cellular response to hormonal
signals, serves as a source of arachidonic acid, and is active in
cellular membranes as phoshatidylinositol. Finally, para-aminobenzoic
acid is an integral component of folic acid as well as having
