DESCRIPTION

Ultra B-Complex tablets, from Douglas Laboratories, is a comprehensive B supplement providing all of the

essential B vitamins as well as related nutrients.

FUNCTIONS

As co-enzymes, the B vitamins are essential components in most major metabolic reactions. They play an

important role in energy production, including the metabolism of lipids, carbohydrates, and proteins. B vitamins

are also important for blood cells, hormones, and nervous system function. As water-soluble substances, B

vitamins are not generally stored in the body in any appreciable amounts (with the exception of vitamin B-12).

Therefore, the body needs an adequate supply of B vitamins on a daily basis.

Thiamin, riboflavin, and niacin are all essential coenzymes in energy production. Thiamin is converted quickly

into thiamin pyrophosphate, which is required for glycolytic and Kreb’s cycle reactions. Thiamin also appears to

be related to nerve impulse transmission. Riboflavin is a component of the coenzymes FAD and FMN, which

are intermediates in many redox reactions, including energy production and cellular respiration reactions.

Niacin is also a component of the coenzymes NAD and NADP, which are involved in energy production, as

well as biosynthetic processes.

Vitamin B-6 is a coenzyme in amino acid metabolism. It is necessary for the metabolism of homocysteine and

the conversion of tryptophan into niacin. Vitamin B-6 dependent enzymes are also needed for the biosynthesis

of many neurotransmitters, including serotonin, epinephrine, and norepinephrine. Vitamin B-12 and folic acid

are coenzymes in DNA and RNA metabolism. Both of these B vitamins assist in homocysteine metabolism.

Folic acid serves as a methyl donor and vitamin B-12 as a coenzyme in the conversion of homocysteine to

methionine.

Biotin and pantothenic acid are also coenzymes essential for energy production from dietary fats,

carbohydrates, and proteins. Pantothenic acid is a component of coenzyme A and of phosphopantetheine, and

is therefore essential for Kreb’s cycle operation. Biotin is involved in many carboxylation reactions associated

with gluconeogenesis, the Kreb’s cycle, and fatty acid synthesis.

While not truly vitamins, choline, inositol, and para-aminobenzoic acid are important nutrients related to B

vitamins. Choline serves as a methyl donor for homocysteine metabolism following conversion to betaine, as a

structural component of cellular membranes as phosphatidylcholine, and as a neurotransmitter as

acetylcholine. Inositol aids in the cellular response to hormonal signals, serves as a source of arachidonic acid,

and is active in cellular membranes as phoshatidylinositol. Finally, para-aminobenzoic acid has antioxidant

properties.

INDICATIONS

Ultra B-Complex tablets may be useful for individuals who wish to supplement their diets with a complete array

of B vitamins and related nutrients.
