B vitamins often exist together in food so it makes sense to take a B complex in a food-based formula with top-ups of single vitamins where necessary. B vitamins and Vitamin C are important for transforming food into energy and to maintain energy and vitality.

Folic acid helps keep blood vessels healthy and maintain normal blood pressure by supporting the elasticity of blood vessels. Vitamin B3 may help to maintain blood lipid levels. Vitamins B2 and B6 help contribute to normal blood cell structure and maintenance of normal iron levels. Folic acid and Vitamin B12 are needed for blood formation and normal cell division.
Vitamin B5 contributes to the synthesis and metabolism of essential substances such as steroid hormones and brain messengers, which are necessary for the proper functioning of the body. Vitamin B2 and Folic acid are important for the healthy development of the unborn baby. Folic acid and Vitamin B12 are essential for normal neural tube development in the unborn child.
Choline is essential for normal brain and nervous system development. It helps maintain memory and brain function and supports cognitive function. Choline helps transport fat away from the liver, thereby maintaining healthy liver function. It also supports cardiovascular health and body metabolism.
Inositol contributes to mental health performance and concentration and is important for a healthy nervous system.
Vitamin B5 is required for normal adrenal function. While Vitamins B2, B3, B5, B12, Biotin and Folic acid are all important for mental function. Vitamins B5 and B6 support healthy hormonal balance.
Vitamin B2 helps many enzyme reactions in the body and can protect cells from free radicals (unstable oxygen molecules which can severely damage cells if left unchecked).
Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12 and Biotin are necessary for healthy teeth, hair, bones, skin and nails. Vitamin B2 and B3 help keep skin and mucous membranes healthy.

True Food® B Complex contains the major B vitamins plus Vitamin C and Magnesium in a food-based form, which the body is designed to digest and are readily absorbed for high bioavailability.
The yeast cell walls are broken down with enzymes from pineapple and papaya fruit to release the nutrients within each cell.
This final step is important to aid digestion but most important for those who are sensitive to yeasts. The allergen, which causes the problem, is a protein on the cell wall; when broken down, its ability to evoke an allergic response is lost.
