Healthy adrenal glands play an important role in managing stress effectively. Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) is part of the B-vitamin complex and is essential for healthy adrenal and immune function.* In particular pantothenic acid serves as the starting material for the synthesis of coenzyme A which is important for metabolism of fats and synthesis of adrenal hormones.* Pantothenic acid plays a key role in the formation of acetylcholine which is needed in the transmission of nerve impulses.* Thorne Research’s Stress B-Complex supplies 250 mg of pantothenic acid and the bioactive forms of the other B vitamins in each capsule to ensure you get the most bioavailable B-complex available.*
Stress B-Complex consists of a group of eight water-soluble compounds: thiamin (vitamin B1) riboflavin (vitamin B2) niacinamide (vitamin B3) pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) pyridoxine and pyridoxal 5′-phosphate (vitamin B6) methylcobalamin (vitamin B12) folate (5-methyltetrahydrofolate) and biotin. Although each B vitamin is chemically distinct they regularly work together in various biochemical functions throughout the body – including cellular energy production healthy red-blood-cell formation and 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.*
Supplementing with active B vitamins is extremely important to everyone especially individuals who might not be able to convert non-active vitamins to the active forms in the liver because of compromised liver function poorly functioning enzymes digestive disturbances or age.* Dietary supplements containing these active cofactors have enhanced bioavailability ensuring the body gets the nutrients it needs.*
Suggested Use: 1-2 pills daily with meals as directed.
