B6 Complex™

What Is B6 Complex?

B6 Complex™ is an exceptional combination of B vitamins, including vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, biotin, and folic acid, all of which are provided in their optimal bioavailable and functional forms. This formula offers the wide ranging support of B-Complex Plus with added vitamin B6 for enhanced support for cardiovascular, nerve and metabolic system health.*

Features of B6 Complex Include

• Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine HCl and pyridoxal 5’ phosphate), supporting amino acid metabolism, nervous system health, and neurotransmitter (i.e. GABA and serotonin) synthesis, which studies have reported may help promote menstrual comfort. Furthermore, pyridoxine supports healthy red blood cells by participating in hemoglobin synthesis and some studies indicate it supports wrist nerve comfort.*

• Vitamin B1 (thiamine HCl), processing carbohydrates, fat, and protein via its coenzyme form of thiamine pyrophosphate (TPP). Vitamin B1 is required to form adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the key source of energy for the body. Thiamine also promotes neural health.*

• Vitamin B2 (riboflavin and riboflavin 5’ phosphate), metabolizing nutrients and participating in electron transport to form ATP. Riboflavin is an integral part of fatty acid catabolism or β-oxidation and helps convert folic acid and vitamin B6 to their active states.*

• Vitamin B3 (niacinamide and inositol hexaniacinate), supporting cardiovascular health by mediating healthy lipid and carbohydrate metabolism.*

• Vitamin B5 (calcium pantothenate), supporting cardiovascular health. Pantothenic acid is vital in the healthy production, transportation, and breakdown of lipids. Furthermore, this B vitamin promotes the production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine.*

• Vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin), supporting healthy nerve cell activity and DNA replication. Vitamin B12 is a vital component of the methionine synthase pathway, which along with folic acid and vitamin B6 supports healthy homocysteine metabolism and S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe) production.*

• Folic acid, promoting the production of healthy DNA and chromosomes. In particular, this B vitamin is critical for the proper neural and cellular development of the fetal central nervous system, helping to prevent neural tube defects. In conjunction with vitamins B12 and B6, folic acid helps to support healthy homocysteine metabolism. Additionally, this B vitamin is important for the growth and reproduction of red and white blood cells.*†

• Biotin, acting as a coenzyme for the metabolism of fat, carbohydrates and protein.*

Uses For B6 Complex™

These B vitamins play important roles in nearly all of the physiological systems in the body. Some of the key supportive roles include the maintenance of muscle tone in the GI tract, the functioning of the nervous system, and the integrity of skin, hair, and the liver. Furthermore, these compounds are essential for healthy fetal neural development, hemoglobin formation, nerve impulse transmissions, mood, hormone synthesis, and energy metabolism. With enhanced B6, this formula especially promotes healthy cardiovascular, nerve and metabolic functions.*† Source of B6 Complex
