Thorne’s Stress B-Complex provides extra B5 for supporting the adrenal glands to manage stress and immune functions. Stress B-Complex provide extra vitamin B5, along with seven other water-soluble nutrients: thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin/R5P (vitamin B2), niacin (vitamin B3), pyridoxine/P5P (vitamin B6), methylcobalamin (vitamin B12), methyl-folate (5MTHF), and biotin. Although each B vitamin is chemically distinct, they work synergistically in various biochemical functions throughout the body, including cellular energy production, healthy red-blood-cell formation, and healthy neurological function.
Most B vitamins, with the exception of vitamin B12, are not stored in the body, they must be taken daily from our diet in order to maintain optimal health.
Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) is the starting material for the synthesis of coenzyme A, which is important for the metabolism of fats and the synthesis of adrenal hormones. Pantothenic acid is needed for the transmission of nerve impulses.
Thorne’s Stress B-Complex supplies 250 mg of pantothenic acid.
Directions: Take 1 capsule one to three times daily or as recommended by your health care practitioner.

Interactions: 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.
