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.
Pharmacists can only administer Vitamin B Complex injections to adults aged 18 and up who are not pregnant. These B Complex Shots are only available in Washington pharmacies. Please call your local Pharmaca Integrative Pharmacy for scheduling an appointment and to confirm availability.
