The B vitamins are equal opportunity nutrients, helping the body metabolize energy, boost immune defenses, regulate cognitive function, handle stress, and protect from disease. Supplementing with bioavailable B vitamins is important for everyone, especially individuals who have to handle a lot of mental and physical stress on a daily basis.
B Excellence provides eight easily absorbed B vitamins plus trimethylglycine (TMG) in one capsule for a simple way to promote energy production, neurological function, and methylation.* This product features all the B vitamins in pharmacological doses with ample Pantothenic Acid (B5), making it is well suited for people who have to handle high levels of chronic stress.*
In simple terms, methylation protects your DNA, which is necessary for health. When mutations occur in DNA, your risk of disease, such as cancer, increases. Methylated B vitamins, including methylcobalamin (B12) and methylfolate (B9) help protect DNA by donating their methyl groups to cytosine, one of the four nucleic acids that make up DNA.
Methylation also helps the body detoxify homocysteine, an amino acid that is associated with heart disease. Methylation plays a role in synthesis of neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and norepinephrine, and hormones, including melatonin an estrogen. It also regulates the fight-or-flight stress response and impacts the function of immune cells.
B Excellence provides methylated tissue-ready B vitamins to ensure methylation processes are cranking.* About 40 percent of the population has the MTHFR genetic mutation that impairs their ability to convert the non-active B vitamins to their active forms. This increases risk of heart disease, migraines, miscarriages, Alzheimer’s, depression, mental illness, cancer, and autoimmune disease, such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. Other factors that can inhibit the body's ability to convert non-active vitamins to their active forms include aging, compromised liver function, poorly functioning enzymes, digestive disturbances, and poor quality diet.
Other actions of the B vitamins include:
- Regulating cognitive function and preventing depression.
- Providing the raw materials for NAD, an antioxidant that protects the arteries.
- Supporting the adrenal glands and energy production from carbohydrates and fats.
- Providing the raw materials for optimal immune function.
- Supporting red blood cell production and the delivery of oxygen to working muscles during exercise.
- Allowing the body to synthesis hormones in the adrenal glands, including testosterone, estrogen, and cortisol.
- Controlling blood glucose levels and preventing insulin resistance.
- Supporting energy metabolism and the prevention of anemia.
