Vitamin B12: Vitamin B12 is important for energy metabolism.  Deficiencies have been associated with chronic stomach inflammation, autoimmune diseases, anemia, and neurological disorders.  B12 is beneficial for cognitive function and cardiovascular disease prevention.  Especially indicated for vegans and vegetarians.

Vitamin B Complex: A synergistic blend of B vitamins that are important for cell metabolism and energy production.  B vitamins promote immune system function, cell growth, metabolic function and nervous system function. 

Magnesium: The fourth most abundant mineral in the body and plays a role in over 300 metabolic reactions in the body.  Based on current calculations, half of us are deficient (1)!  Magnesium is needed to make proteins in the body, its needed to make energy in the cells and its needed to turn cancer genes off.  Our nervous systems are dependent on Magnesium, our muscles contract because of magnesium, and blood sugars are metabolized.  Low magnesium levels are associated with Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes (2). 

Vitamin B6 (pyridoxal acid): Deficiency of vitamin B 6 has been associated with depression, confusion, and weakened immune function.

Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic acid): B5 is a vitamin that is essential to all forms of life.  It has been shown to lower cholesterol and lipid levels and plays a role in fatty acid synthesis.  It is critical to the manufacture of red blood cells, and helps the adrenal glands function.  It is sometimes referred to as the “anti-stress” vitamin because of its role in adrenal gland function.
