ADVANCED B COMPLEX 90 caps
A recent study by researchers at Oxford and Oslo universities in 266 patients (70 plus years age) with mild cognitive impairment showed that taking a B complex supplement lessened the symptoms of dementia. The improvement of memory (both word recall and fluency of words) was attributed to the reduction of a toxic amino acid called homocysteine.
Since 1969 Kilmer McCully a pathologist noticed that high homocysteine levels were responsible for heart disease. Subsequent research showed that taking various B vitamins, notably folic acid, vitamins B6 and B12 reduced homocysteine levels.
This new study shows that a B-Complex supplement reduced homocysteine levels by 30%. The toxic amino acid is also strongly linked to atrophy or shrinking of the brain and may be the cause of dementia. The mechanism of action is thought to be due to the various B vitamins acting as co-factors in the breakdown of the homocysteine.
AOR's Advanced B Complex has a balanced ratio of all the B vitamins but in addition all the B vitamins are present in their already active forms thus enabling a rapid and a powerful action. Moreover, certain percentage of the population have difficulty in converting specific nutrients into the active form e.g. folic acid into the more active 5 Methy Tetrahydro Folate.
Prevents age-related collagen degeneration
Maintains cellular energy production
Supports the function of the brain and nervous system
Contains the most effective forms of B vitamins
The B complex is a group of essential vitamins with important roles in the body. Benfotiamine (a bioavailable form of vitamin B1) helps prevent high blood sugar.
Riboflavin (B2) has an important role in energy metabolism.
Niacin (B3)is the base of NAD and NADH, important coenzymes that are required in cellular respiration and energy production pathways.
Coenzyme A is also a critical factor in these pathways, and its production depends on pantothenic acid (B5).
P5P (B6) is required in many biological pathways, including amino acid metabolism and neurotransmitter formation.
Methylcobalamin (B12) is important in the central nervous system.
Benfotiamine and P5P help prevent the formation of advanced glycation end products which lead to age-related degeneration.
Folic acid is needed for red blood cell and DNA formation and is essential during pregnancy.
The Costs of Deficiency
The importance of these vitamins is illustrated by the detrimental health effects that occur when they are deficient. B1 deficiency has been linked to type 2 diabetes. B12 deficiency leads to neurological disorders and anemia. P5P deficiency is associated with depression and neuropathy. Folic acid deficiency is associated with anemia and neural tube defects in infants.
B vitamins are essential, and it is important to get the right amount in the right forms. Advanced B Complex delivers the biologically active and most efficient forms of these vitamins.
