Vitamin B-complex consists of a group of eight water-soluble compounds: thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), niacin (vitamin B3), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxine (vitamin B6), cobalamin (vitamin B12), folate, and biotin. Although each B vitamin is chemically distinct, they often work together in various biochemical functions throughout the body from cellular energy production, to healthy red blood cell formation, to healthy neurological function. Most B vitamins, with the exception of vitamin B12, are not stored in the body. Consequently, they must be acquired daily from the diet in order to maintain optimal health.
Thorne Basic B Complex contains the entire B-complex, including the activated forms of vitamin B2 (riboflavin 5-phosphate), B6 (pyridoxal 5-phosphate), folic acid (folinic acid and 5-methyl-tetrahydrofolate), and B12 (adenosylcobalamin and methylcobalamin), as well as 80 mg choline citrate. Although choline is often grouped with the B vitamin family, it is not officially a B vitamin.
