Viridian’s best selling B-complex with vitamin C. Each of the Viridian B-complex supplements offers a full array of the B vitamins together with a higher level of a featured B vitamin. This supplement features a higher level of pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) to aid in the reduction of tiredness.

B complex vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6 & B12) contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, to normal psychological function and mental performance, energy-yielding metabolism, the regulation of hormonal activity, the functioning of the immune, cardio and nervous systems and the maintenance of normal skin, mucous membranes, vision and red blood cells. B complex vitamins also contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress. This ‘oxidative stress’ appears to be a major factor in many human diseases.

 

Potential applications: Stress / adrenal support, fatigue, depression, weight control, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), sports performance (ATP production), nervous disorders.

Interestingly, vitamin C is needed for carnitine synthesis, an amino acid that transports fatty acids into the mitochondria of muscle tissue. Reduced carnitine status appears to be responsible for the marked fatigue and lassitude shown in vitamin C deficiency and early scurvy.

Known contraindications: B5 has no known toxic side-effects and so can be used in relatively large amounts.

Vitamin B5 upper safe level: 1000mg (long and short term – excessively large doses of around 10,000mg have been known to cause diarrhoea and gastrointestinal disturbances).

Interactions: Pantothenic acid works together with carnitine and Co Q10 in fatty-acid transport and utilisation.

Non-heme (vegetarian) iron absorption from a single meal is enhanced 2-3 fold in the presence of 25mg-75mg vitamin C. Vitamin C potentiates vitamin E activity in cells by regenerating alpha-tocopherol from its oxidised derivative.

Useful links: Stress – Rhodiola, flax seed oil, Avena Sativa, Vervain, Licorice
