Extra Niacin and Niacinamide in a Comprehensive B-Complex Formula
- Unlike many B vitamin products, B-complex #3 contains the active forms for enhanced bioavailability
- B-complex #3 contains an optimal balance of essential B vitamins with extra vitamin B3 as niacin and niacinamide
- B-complex #3 is yeast free
A component of the water-soluble vitamin B-complex, niacin (vitamin B3, nicotinic acid) is involved in numerous reactions in the body. Niacin is essential for proper metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. Furthermore, it is needed for alcohol detoxification; in fact, alcoholism is a prime cause of vitamin B3 deficiency. Niacinamide may also have unique benefits in carbohydrate metabolism and the support of healthy joints.
Thorne's B-Complex #3 supplies 20 mg niacin and 275 mg niacinamide and the bioactive forms of the other B vitamins in each capsule to ensure you get the most bioavailable B-complex available.
B-Complex #3 also consists of a group of eight water-soluble compounds: thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), niacin (vitamin B3), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxine (vitamin B6), cobalamin (vitamin B12), folate, and biotin. Although each B vitamin is chemically distinct, they often work together in various biochemical functions throughout the body – from cellular energy production, to healthy red-blood-cell formation, to healthy neurological function. Most B vitamins, with the exception of vitamin B12, are not stored in the body; consequently, they must be acquired daily from the diet in order to maintain optimal health.
Supplementing with active B vitamins is extremely important to everyone, especially individuals who may not be able to convert non-active vitamins to their active forms in the liver because of compromised liver function, poorly functioning enzymes, digestive disturbances, or age. Dietary supplements containing these active cofactors have enhanced bioavailability, ensuring the body gets the nutrients it needs.
Take 1 capsule one to three times daily or as recommended by your health-care practitioner.
