B-vitamins are a group of eight vitamins that have an essential role in the body to produce energy, regulate mood, support nerve function and offset the effects of stress. The B-vitamin family includes Vitamin B1 (thiamin), Vitamin B2 (riboflavin), Vitamin B3 (niacin), Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid), Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), Vitamin B7 (biotin), Vitamin B9 (folic acid or folate), and Vitamin B12 (cobalamin).
Unfortunately many people are deficient in B-vitamins, which can lead to numerous health issues. For example, B1 deficiency has been linked to nerve problems associated with blood sugar imbalances. B12 deficiency leads to neurological disorders and anemia. B6 deficiency is associated with depression and neuropathy. B5 deficiency can contribute to stress 'burnout'. Folic acid deficiency is associated with anemia and poor fetal development. While anyone can become deficient in B-vitamins, some people such as vegans, vegetarians and the elderly are at greater risk for deficiency and would be wise to supplement with extra B-vitamins.
Taking a standard B-complex formula may be essentially useless, as your body might not be able to utilize it. The body must convert the B-vitamins into their active coenzyme forms in order to absorb them, and some people have genetic alterations that reduce their body's ability to perform these conversions. Another downfall of generic B-vitamin formulas is that they tend to deliver exactly the same dose of each B vitamin. Since the body needs them in different amounts, this makes little sense and can even lead to nutrient imbalances.
These two factors highlight the need for a B-complex supplement that contains all of the B-vitamins in their active, coenzyme forms; in evidence-based dosages, and in the correct ratios to one another. Advanced B Complex by AOR delivers the biologically active and most efficient forms of these vitamins in balanced doses to ensure that you get the most out of your B-complex.
