Onnit Active B Complete
This potent supplement contains Vitamins B1, B2, B5, B6 and B12, as well as Folic Acid and Biotin – both of which are also forms of B vitamin. As such, it is a comprehensive B complex supplement, but as always with Onnit they have gone a step beyond garden variety supplement manufacturers to create something far more effective.
The problem they have solved is that not everyone handles the absorption of B vitamins well. For them, supplementation with a methylated version, like 5-methyltetrahydrofolate, can make a huge difference in overall mental balance.
Generally speaking, the methylated form of Vitamin B, like Onnits methylated form of B12, is more easily absorbed by the body.
The standout ingredient, Benfotiamine, has clinical research indicating that the bioavailability of thiamine in blood plasma is reported to be approximately 3.5 times greater after a dose of Benfotiamine than after a dose of Thiamine. That is a huge difference in how effective your B vitamin supplement will be.
The importance of Thiamine (Vitamin B1) simply cannot be understated. It is used by every single cell in our body to form ATP – the fuel that we run on. It is also needed to process carbohydrates, fat and protein, and is essential to nerve cell function.
So, from mental support in the conversion of neurotransmitters, to energy support, to detoxification of sugar end products, a good B vitamin can make a huge difference in your day. B Vitamins have been shown to increase mental energy and reduce work-related stress, so if you have to do a lot of thinking this is for you!
