What is B Complex?

At first, vitamin B was believed to be one single nutrient. Researchers have since discovered that there are 8 individual essential vitamins that make up vitamin B.

B Complex is a combination of all the essential water-soluble vitamins in the vitamin B group, including thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), niacin (vitamin B3), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxine (vitamin B6), biotin, folic acid and the cobalamins (vitamin B12).

B Complex has been made available in a sterile solution for intramuscular injection, a nasal spray or an oral supplement to help combat this specific combination of vitamin deficiencies.

What is B Complex good for?

B Complex offers a number of health benefits (especially in those who are deficient), including:

  • Boosting energy
  • Controlling food cravings to aid with weight loss
  • Combating stress & anxiety
  • Aiding with sleep
  • Promoting wound healing
  • Providing relief from canker sores & hives

What does B Complex do?

B Complex is not readily absorbed by the body, which is why people people can become deficient in it.

Each individual nutrient contained in B Complex features a unique structure and performs its own special functions within the body.

  • Vitamins B1, B2, B3 and biotin all aid in different ways with energy production
  • Vitamin B6 is essential for regulating amino acid metabolism
  • Vitamin B12 and folic acid encourage the processes required for cell division

Is B Complex the same as B12?

No. B Complex is not the same as B12. B12 is just one of the 8 individual essential vitamins that fall into the vitamin B group. B Complex, meanwhile, contains all 8 of the essential vitamins in the vitamin B group, including B12. So taking B Complex can potentially help address a B12 deficiency as well.
