B vitamins are important for healthy growth and functioning of the body, particularly for energy production and healthy metabolism of your food into energy.
High stress, poor diet, alcohol and certain medications can deplete the body of B vitamin or affect their absorption.
Each 2g serve of Lifestream Natural B-Complex give you more than 100% of the RDI for the following B vitamins: B2, B3, B5, B6, B12 and biotin.
Many synthetic B vitamins are synthesised from petrochemicals which are derived from petroleum. Also synthetic vitamins lack the natural nutrient cofactors which are present in food sources of the vitamin. Nature also ensure vitamins that work together are packaged together. This is the case with B vitamins, which work best when taken together as a complex.
Studies suggest that natural food sourced B complex vitamins have a higher bioavailability than isolated vitamins.
