A Vitamin B-Complex with Extra B5 for Adrenal Support

  • Unlike Many B Vitamin Products, B Complex #5 Contains the Active Forms for Enhanced Bioavailability
  • B-Complex #5 Contains an Optimal Balance of Essential B Vitamins with Extra Vitamin B5 As Calcium Pantothenate
  • B-Complex #5 is Yeast Free
  • Without Preservatives, Magnesium Stearate, or Other Lubricants and Diluents
  • Made without Flowing Agents that can Inhibit Bioavailability

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 supplies 225 mg of pantothenic acid in each capsule of B-Complex #5 in addition to a blend of B vitamins. This formula provides support for those who not only require a good vitamin B-complex but who may also need extra adrenal support.

Thorne's B-Complex #5 supplies 225 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.

B-Complex #5 consists of a group of eight water-soluble compounds: thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), niacin (vitamin B3), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxine (vitamin B6), cobalamin (vitamin B12), folate, and biotin. Although each B vitamin is chemically distinct, they often work together in various biochemical functions throughout the body – from cellular energy production, to healthy red-blood-cell formation, to 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 may not be able to convert non-active vitamins to their 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

Take 1 capsule one to three times daily or as recommended by your health-care practitioner.

Other Ingredients

Hypromellose (derived from cellulose) capsule, magnesiumcitratelaurate, silicon dioxide.

Warnings

Extra B12 and B5 Pantothenic acid for adrenal support

Posted by Reviewer3151270 on Aug 19, 2011

This is great price for a good quality B complex with extra B12 for stressed out people and extra Pantothenic acid (B5) for adrenal support. Not sure how well it's working as I'm taking a few other supplements but I am feeling more energetic. I'm also getting lots of rest, laughter and gentle exercise to help my adrenals. I'm also taking Nature's Way, Pantothenic Acid 250 mg on top of this.

Can Really See a Difference with This One!

Posted by Reviewer3221151 on Oct 28, 2011

I've taken many different B supplements over the years, but this is the first one where I can tell a significant difference. I chose the #5 because of the high level of Pantothenic Acid.

Thorne B Complex #5

Posted by Reviewer1373824 on Apr 05, 2012

I have tried many B complexes, and often react badly to them (for example, some formulas give me palpitations; others might have soy lecithin, which makes my skin break out; others contain fillers which just don't agree with me). I seem to be able to tolerate this, though (and also the #12 complex, which I have also tried). I only take them a few times a week - these are strong formulas, and I feel every day is too much for me. But I'm really grateful for these hypoallergenic supplements. Vitamin B5 is supposed to be good if you have adrenal fatigue; I do get a bit of an energy boost from this, even with sporadic use.
