The Bs don’t tend to get quite as much attention as the As, Cs and Ds, but for our bodies, they are right up there at the top! While some B vitamins can be synthesized in the gut, they are generally not retained in large quantities due to their water solubility – in other words, they are flushed out of the body easily. Deficiency in one or more Bs is surprisingly common. Since the Bs contribute to thousands of biochemical processes, deficiency symptoms can be wide-ranging and include fatigue, insomnia, irritability, depression, nervousness, and frequent illness.
We know that B vitamins are critical for supporting energy, cell health and immunity, and that they are especially important during times of mental and physical stress. We also know that not all B vitamins are created equal! Health First’s Active B Supreme contains the fully bioactive forms of B vitamins to ensure they are easily absorbed by the body. Two capsules provide adults with their daily recommended dose of all eight key B vitamins, plus inositol and choline.
