WHAT IS ALL THE HYPE ABOUT METHYLATED B VITAMINS?
B-Complex is a nutritional supplement comprised of eight key B vitamins: Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacinamide, B6, Folic Acid, B12, Biotin and Pantothenic Acid. The supplement also includes the essential support nutrients PABA (para-aminobenzoic acid), Choline and Inositol. B vitamins play a key role in all cellular function. They are also essential for supporting brain health, as well as the cardiovascular and nervous systems.
Since B vitamins are found in a variety of foods, you may be able to get the amount you need by eating a balanced diet. However, certain factors (age, pregnancy, medication, genetics) and lifestyle choices (alcohol consumption, poor diet) can lead to a B vitamin deficiency. Deficiencies in B vitamins may contribute to memory and cognitive issues, depression, crankiness, insomnia, headaches, fatigue and other health concerns.
The essential support nutrients in EvexiPEL’s B-Complex formula may also help support brain health, improve mental health and alleviate stress. Choline has been shown to support healthy nerve tissue, cell growth and fatty acid metabolism. In addition, patients experiencing mood irregularities, anxiety or irritability may benefit from PABA and/or Inositol
B-Complex has also been shown to support estrogen optimization. People often oversimplify the role of estrogen in enhancing wellness and causing disease, and believe you’re rolling the dice when it comes to good health outcomes or bad. In reality, both good estrogen (2-hydroxyestrone) and bad estrogen (estrones) exist in our bodies. B vitamins – specifically Methylated B-12 and Methylfolate – are essential to supporting the detoxification pathways of hormones.
This process – methylation – must occur in order for hormones to metabolize properly and detoxify the bad estrogen, otherwise, a build-up of the bad estrogen metabolites associated with breast, prostate and colon cancers may occur. Unfortunately, more than 30 percent of the population does not methylate B Vitamins properly, resulting in B vitamin deficiency.
WHAT CAN B-COMPLEX DO FOR ME?
B-Complex plays a key role in supporting brain health, the nervous system, the cardiovascular system and the metabolism and detoxification of hormones in the body. Practitioners may prescribe B-Complex to:
- Treat memory issues
- Enhance mood and alleviate depression
- Support healthy detoxification
- Prevent migraines
- Enhance sleep patterns and restfulness
- Increase energy
- Combat extreme fatigue
- Support healthy cholesterol levels and proper circulation
- Help facilitate hormone optimization
HOW DO I TAKE B-COMPLEX?
Since B vitamins are water soluble – your body doesn’t store them – you should take your B-Complex oral supplement once daily with a meal – unless recommended otherwise by your medical practitioner.
WHAT ELSE SHOULD I KNOW ABOUT B-COMPLEX?
You should follow the B-Complex dosage recommended by your practitioner as consuming high doses of certain B vitamins could lead to serious side effects.
You may notice that your urine is discolored (typically bright yellow) when taking B-Complex. This is completely normal and not a cause for concern.
If you are pregnant or nursing, you should consult your healthcare practitioner prior to taking B-Complex and other nutritional supplements.
As with prescription medications, it’s important to discuss the pros, cons, drug interactions and any potential side effects of nutritional supplements with your EvexiPEL Certified Provider.
