B-100 Caps provide a full complement of B-Vitamins plus Choline and Inositol. These vitamins work to support energy production, maintain healthy homocysteine metabolism, and promote the health of the nervous system.* B-Vitamins are water soluble, and with the exception of B-12, have limited storage in the body and thus require daily replenishment. While B-12 is stored in the liver, dietary sources are of animal origin only (meat and dairy) and supplementation with B-12 may be especially important for vegetarians.
From the FDA's website: "As part of a well-balanced diet that is low in saturated fat and cholesterol, Vitamin B-12 may reduce the risk of vascular disease. FDA evaluated the above claim and found that, while it is known that diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol reduce the risk of heart disease and other vascular diseases, the evidence in support of the above claim is inconclusive."
Vitamin B-12 (Methylcobalamin) is a water soluble vitamin necessary for the maintenance of a healthy nervous system and for the metabolic utilization of fats and proteins. Vitamin B-12 is also essential for the synthesis of DNA during cell division and therefore essential for the synthesis of DNA during cell division and therefore is especially important for rapidly multiplying cells, such as blood cells. Brain B-12 contains only the methylcobalamin form of B12, which is the coenzyme form. Methylcobalamin is considered an enhanced form of B12 and is the same form found in natural food supplies. It is believed to be a much more active and bioavailable form of this vitamin. It is the form that crosses the blood-brain barrier and is active in brain and nerve tissue.
Choline & Inositol are members of the B-vitamin family. Choline is necessary for normal synaptic transmission, brain health, and fatty acid metabolism in the liver.* Inositol is also essential for brain and nervous system health.* Both Choline and Inositol are essential components of all cell membranes.* Natural color variation may occur in this product.
