Thorne’s B-Complex 6 contains an optimal balance of essential B vitamins with extra vitamin B6. B-Complex 6 contains thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin and riboflavin 5′-phosphate (vitamin B2), niacinamide (vitamin B3), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxine and pyridoxal 5′-phospate (vitamin B6), methylcobalamin (vitamin B12), methyl-folate (5-MTHF), 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. B-Complex 6 offer both pyridoxine and active pyridoxal 5′-phosphate to support brain function, B6 can also help relieve the symptom of fluid retention and support a good mood in individuals with PMS syndrome.
Supplementing with active B vitamins is important for everyone, and especially for individuals whose livers may not be able to convert the non-active B vitamin forms to their active forms because of compromised liver function, poorly functioning enzymes, digestive disturbances, or age.
Thorne’s B-Complex 6 supplies 106 mg of pyridoxine HCl, 25 mg pyridoxal 5′-phosphate, and the bioactive forms of other B vitamins in each capsule to provide an optimally bioavailable B complex.

Interactions/Contraindications: 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) supplementation is not recommended concurrent with methotrexate cancer therapy, as it can interfere with methotrexate’s anti-neoplastic activity; however, this folate source has not been shown to interfere with the anti-inflammatory activity of methotrexate. An individual taking methotrexate for psoriasis or rheumatoid arthritis can safely take a supplement containing folate.
