Basic B Complex
Basic B Complex 60c
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. Both 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. 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.
5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) supplementation is not recommended concurrent with methotrexate cancer therapy, as it can interfere with methotrexate's anti-neoplastic activity; however, this folate source has 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.
