Vitamin B

B vitamins are wonderful in helping us adapt to stress, have energy, help our mood, build blood cells, and have an important role in a process called methylation. There may be an increased need in times of stress or if gut imbalances disrupt nutrient absorption or dietary B vitamin intake is low.

Methylated B vitamins, methyl folate in particular (5-MTHF) – is an activated B vitamin that you may need if you have some called an MTHFR SNP (a fancy term for a genetic variant with decreased ability to turn your dietary folate into useable fuel for your methylation cycle). Without enough of this, you can have poor detox, hormonal imbalances, and changes in mood, such as increased anxiety or depression. B12 is also important for energy, red blood cell production, and hormone detoxification.

B6 can play a role in balancing stress, moodiness, poor sleep, and PMS.

Healthy adrenal glands play an important role in effectively managing stress.* Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) is part of the B-vitamin complex and is essential for healthy adrenal and immune function.* Thorne’s Stress B-Complex provide extra vitamin B5, along with seven other water-soluble nutrients: thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin/R5P (vitamin B2), niacin (vitamin B3), pyridoxine/P5P (vitamin B6), methylcobalamin (vitamin B12), methyl-folate (5MTHF), and biotin. Although each B vitamin is chemically distinct, they work synergistically 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.*

Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) serves as the starting material for the synthesis of coenzyme A, which is important for the metabolism of fats and the 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’s Stress B-Complex supplies 250 mg of pantothenic acid.

Take 1 capsule one to three times daily or as recommended by your health professional.

5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) supplementation is not recommended concurrent with methotrexate cancer therapy, as it can interfere with methotrexate’s anti-neoplastic activity; however, this folate source has not been shown to interfere with the anti-inflammatory activity of methotrexate. An individual taking methotrexate for psoriasis or rheumatoid arthritis can safely take a supplement containing folate.
