Vitamin B-Complex supplements include all of the essential B vitamins in one. Some people might find that vitamin B12 is the only supplement they need, but pregnant women, people who are older as well as vegans and vegetarians should also consider taking B-complex.
The different vitamins contained in the liposomal B-complex are:
Vitamin B-1 – thiamine
Vitamin B-1 is vital to the healthy growth and function of organs, including the brain and heart.
Vitamin B-2 – riboflavin
The body needs vitamin B-2 to break down fats and drugs.
Vitamin B-3 – niacin
The body needs niacin to maintain healthy skin, nerves, and digestion. Doctors sometimes prescribe high doses of niacin to help improve cholesterol levels.
Vitamin B-5 – pantothenic acid
Vitamin B-5 is essential for the health of the brain and nervous system.
Vitamin B-6 – pyridoxine
Vitamin B-6 helps the body make new red blood cells, which carry oxygen throughout the body. It also helps keep the immune system strong.
Vitamin B-7 – biotin
Biotin is essential for healthy hair, nails, and nerve function.
Vitamin B-9 – folic acid
The body uses folic acid - or folate, its natural form - to make DNA and genetic material. During pregnancy, folic acid may reduce the risk of certain birth defects.
Vitamin B-12 – cobalamin
The body’s nerve and blood cells require vitamin B-12. Adequate levels of B-12 also prevent pernicious anamia (lack of iron), which is a deficiency of this nutrient.
