Dr Mercola Vitamin B Complex

Dr Mercola

Dr Mercola’s Vitamin B Complex is a complete complex of eight major B vitamins in their ideal proportions. Organically bound to a natural complex, these B vitamins contain their co-factors and co-enzymes to optimise their bioavailability. Because they are biologically active, this complex of vitamins can go to work in your body right away and last longer than typically isolated vitamins.

B vitamins are important for your brain, nervous system and immune function, energy production, cell metabolism, organ and tissue health and much more.

Low levels of B vitamins can affect your body in many different ways because of the vitamin’s far-reaching and interrelated effects. Some of the signs include: inability to sleep well, fatigue, GI symptoms, joint or muscle discomfort, mood swings, confusion and forgetfulness.

Low levels of Vitamin B are becoming more commonplace as researchers discover exciting new benefits for this valuable family of nutrients. With our deteriorating food quality, rising assaults on gut health and living in a toxic environment, it is clear that we need this complex of brain and body nutrients more than ever.

Available in 2 sizes.

13 Signs You May Be Low in B Vitamins

Low levels of B vitamins can affect your body in many different ways because of the vitamins’ far-reaching and interrelated effects. Any one of these common symptoms could be a result of low levels of one or more B vitamins:

  • Inability to sleep well
  • Fatigue and apathy
  • Mental “fog”, confusion, and forgetfulness
  • Mood swings and irritability
  • Gastrointestinal symptoms
  • Joint or muscle discomfort
  • Muscle weakness
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Numbness or tingling in fingers and toes
  • Frequent bruising
  • Headaches
  • Irritability
  • Dry, cracking skin

Because the vitamin B complex is a group of eight major B vitamins that work together, you can impact their synergy just by running low on one. For example, many of the B complex vitamins are needed for healthy skin. If you are low in one or two, that can affect the actions of the others.

Who Could Be At Risk For a Vitamin B Deficiency

Certain groups are more likely to have a deficiency or low levels of one or more B vitamins:

  • Those with gut issues (the vitamins may not be absorbed properly) or anyone taking antacids or proton-pump inhibitors, which again could interfere with absorption.
  • Adults over 50 because of lower production of intrinsic factor
  • Those who regularly drink alcohol or more than 4 cups of coffee a day
  • Vegetarians, vegans and others not eating key dietary sources of B vitamins like dairy, meat and whole grains
  • Those regularly consuming a high-calorie, high-carbohydrate diet with low nutrient value

B vitamins in general aren’t absorbed well. Add one or more of the above factors and you could easily put yourself at risk for low levels or deficiency.

One of the key B vitamins whose availability and absorption can be impacted by several of these conditions (especially avoiding animal products) is vitamin B12 or cobalamin. A vitamin B12 deficiency can exist for years under the radar without causing symptoms. By the time you start noticing its classic signs of fatigue, mental “fog”, forgetfulness, mood swings, and muscle weakness, you can be significantly deficient.

Because B vitamins are water-soluble and not stored in your body, you must get the entire complex through diet each day. This can be a challenge since many individuals may have absorption issues. Plus, some of the vitamins are easily destroyed during processing and storage.

The Dr Mercola Vitamin B Complex is a unique and complete complex that provides the ideal proportion of the eight major B vitamins:

  • Contains the patented PANMOL vitamin B complex with concentrations of B vitamins a hundred-fold higher than what is found in whole grains
  • The B vitamins are organically bound to sprouts from organic quinoa seeds for enhanced bio-availability and potential benefits
  • Contains more than just the eight familiar B vitamins – It contains a multitude of well-balanced and biologically active B vitamins complete with co-factors and co-enzymes
  • May be better absorbed in your body than regular isolated synthetic B vitamins
  • Contains fat-soluble Benfotiamine that can cross cell walls with greater ease for enhanced thiamine bio-availability and cellular support in your body and brain

This is the first time B vitamins have been created through a patented process where they are organically bound!

Like a well-oiled machine, B vitamins work together to support energy production and the health of your brain, nervous system, skin and eyes. When you have a limited supply of B Vitamins, your central nervous system (CNS) can be the first to be affected. All of the B vitamins are important for brain and nerve cells, but some stand out for their role in supporting memory, cognitive health and brain performance.

Bioavailable and Biologically Active B Vitamins  – Grown in a Plant Complex!

Mercola have partnered with a lab outside of Hamburg, Germany that is doing something very innovative; so unique they have patented the process. They are creating bio-available and biologically active B vitamins in a matrix of sprouts grown from organic quinoa seeds!

To make their patented formula PANMOL they start with the eight-major synthetic bio-identical B vitamins and organic quinoa, an ancient gluten-free seed that is closely related to spinach and beets.

The B vitamins are added to the water used for sprouting the quinoa seeds. During the sprouting process, the sprouts take up the vitamin-saturated “broth” and incorporate them into the plant. When the sprouts reach the ideal stage, they are  harvested and powderised.

The end result is a B vitamin complex that:

  • Has the B vitamins organically bound to the plant for food-based benefits
  • Contains the eight familiar B vitamins and a multitude of well-balanced and biologically active B vitamins complete with co-factors and co-enzymes
  • May be better absorbed in your body than regular isolated synthetic B vitamins

By using a patented stage-by-stage procedure, this lab has been able to develop a concentrated and complex life source of micronutrients that, until now has never been achieved in biological research.

Japanese Benfotiamine for Enhanced Bioavailability and Cellular Support

European doctors have been using a little known, yet special form of vitamin B1 or thiamine for decades to:

  • Support healthy endothelial function and cardiovascular health
  • Help protect against oxidative stress of brain and nerve tissue
  • Support healthy cardiac muscle cell function
  • Support healthy kidney function
  • Support healthy vision

What is truly unique about benfotiamine is that it is fat-soluble. This unusual trait allows it to enter your cells with much greater ease than regular water-soluble thiamine. It also remains active in your body for a longer period. Because benfotiamine passes through cell walls so easily, its enhanced bio-availability and bio-activity potential help protect cells, tissues and organs.

And since it is a form of thiamine, it is ideal for supporting your cognitive function, nervous and musculoskeletal systems, and digestion. A study even shows benfotiamine may help decrease the production of amyloid plaque in the brain.

As you already know, thiamine helps convert carbohydrates and fats into glucose or fuel for your body. It is also used to regulate glucose metabolism. Whenever you eat simple carbohydrates or sugars that turn into glucose in your body, you automatically need more vitamin B1 or thiamine to handle its metabolism. Benfotiamine supports healthy thiamine levels in your body, which in turn promotes optimal production of the enzyme thiamine pyrophosphate, or TPP.

This is what makes benfotiamine especially valuable as TPP plays a role in maintaining healthy advanced glycation end product (AGE) activity. Studies show that benfotiamine disrupts three major pathways that can lead to the formation of toxic substances in your body, including AGEs.
