The B vitamin family includes vitamin B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6 (pyridoxine), B7 (biotin), B9 (folic acid or folate), and B12 (cobalamin).
Though they have essential roles in the body B vitamins are easily lost from the body through urine and sweat. This fact, combined with other factors such as a modern diet high in processed foods, means that it’s easy to become deficient in B vitamins. Additionally, certain groups, including vegans, vegetarians, and the elderly, are at greater risk for Vitamin B deficiency.
Aging, for example, affects how well you take in and use B12 from foods. Deficiency can lead to numerous health issues, including blood sugar imbalances, neurological disorders, anemia, and depression. The body must convert B vitamins into their active coenzyme forms in order to absorb them. Some people have genetic alterations that reduce their body’s ability to perform these conversions. Vegan-friendly Advanced B Complex® contains all of the B-vitamins in their active coenzyme forms, and in balanced doses to ensure that you get the most out of your B complex.
