Thorne Research, Basic
B Complex – 60 Capsules
Product form: Capsule
Size: 60 Capsules
Thorne Research Basic B Complex contains active forms of the
vitamins for enhanced availability to the tissues.* B vitamins are essential
for healthy neurological function and energy production.*
Most B vitamins do not remain stored in the body, so they
must be acquired daily from the diet to help maintain optimal health.*
Therefore, supplementing with tissue-ready B vitamins is extremely important to
everyone, especially individuals who might not be able to convert non-active B
vitamins to their active forms in the liver.*
Basic B Complex consists of 10
water-soluble compounds. Unlike many B vitamin products, Basic B Complex
contains the active forms of several of the B vitamins for enhanced
utilization: thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin 5'-phosphate (active vitamin
B2), niacin and niacinamide (two forms of vitamin B3), pantothenic acid
(vitamin B5), pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (active vitamin B6), methylcobalamin
(active vitamin B12), 5-MTHF (active folate), biotin, and choline.*
individually and together these nutrients support cellular energy production,
healthy red blood cell formation, and healthy neurological function.*
Among the factors that can inhibit the body's ability to convert non-active
vitamins to their active forms in the liver are compromised liver function,
poorly functioning enzymes, digestive disturbances, and age.
Thorne's Basic B
Complex contains the entire B complex, including the activated forms of vitamin
B2 (riboflavin 5'-phosphate), vitamin B6 (pyridoxal 5'-phosphate), folic acid
(L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate), and vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin), as well as
biotin and choline. Although choline is often grouped with the B vitamin
family, it is not officially a B vitamin.
And, unlike many B vitamin supplements on
the market, Thorne's Basic B Complex is not derived from yeast.
This product is contraindicated in an individual with a history of
hypersensitivity to any of its ingredients.
If pregnant, consult your health professional before using this product.
Folinic acid and 5-methyl-tetrahydrofolate supplementation is not recommended
concurrently with methotrexate cancer therapy, as they can interfere with
methotrexate's anti-neoplastic activity; however, these folate sources have not
been shown to interfere with the anti-inflammatory activity of methotrexate. An
individual taking methotrexate for psoriasis or rheumatoid arthritis can safely
take a supplement containing folate.
