B-Complex #12 offers a complete vitamin B complex, with added vitamin B-12 and folate. Supplementing with the active forms of the B vitamins is extremely important to everyone, especially individuals who might not be able to convert non-active B vitamins to their active forms in the liver because of compromised liver function, poorly functioning enzymes, digestive disorders, or increasing age.* Vitamin B12 and folate are necessary for normal red blood cell formation, tissue and cellular repair, normal methylation and homocysteine metabolism, and DNA synthesis.* Thorne's B-Complex #12 supplies the active form of vitamin B12 – methylcobalamin – as well as the active form of folate – 5-MTHF. The other bioactive forms of the B vitamins in each capsule ensures you will get the most bioavailable vitamin B complex available.* B-Complex #12 is not derived from yeast.
