Sustain - Dinner-time B Complex
Sustain is the comprehensive dinner-time B complex.There are many nutrients that are or have been classified at one time as B Vitamins. Only those that you cannot survive without are now considered in most B Complex supplements. We consider all of them, because of their important functions and benefits beyond stark survival and prevention of consensus deficiency diseases.
We also go the extra distance to consider that different nutrients, including the various B Vitamins are processed optimally at different times during the day and night. Hence, while this is our Dinner-time B Complex, we have also designed a Breakfast time, Lunch time and a Bedtime B Complex supplement formulation.
Since the B vitamins are essential cofactors in mitochondrial energy production, and energy is crucial for every biological action even including stress-relieving functions muscle relaxation and sleep, you can emphasize the B vitamins you need the most by boosting the B Complex for the time of day when your symptoms arise or are most noticeable. For example, Vital Energy Be at lunch will help boost your B's for those afternoon down times. And you will be supporting cellular energy production, compared to a stimulant like caffeine that actually draws down your reserves.
Another cultural phenomenon that seems odd to us is the tendency to throw together a B Complex that has 50, 100 or 150 mg of each essential B Vitamin. Even a cursory look at the Daily Values needed for a healthy person to prevent the overt signs and symptoms of deficiency disease reveals that the relative requirements for these substances is not likely to be found in equal milligram amounts. We have designed our dosages based on the optimum dosage range, which is typically well above the minimal DV range. We then spread that optimum amount across the times of day which are optimum for processing each nutrient.
As with all of our formulations, we also avoid the addition of any non-nutritive excipients that most formulas add for the convenience and efficiency of rapid mass production equipment, rather than for any benefit to you. In fact, typical commercial formulas will include ingredients that actually reduce bioavailability of the nutritive ingredients not only in all your supplements, but even in the foods you eat. That's why we meticulously avoid the use of substances like Magnesium Stearate and Phthalates found in so many supplements and pharmaceuticals.
