helps in emulsification of fat and cholesterol, integral part of acetylcholine, flow of electrical energy in the nervous system, maintains health of the myelin sheath, detoxification

Folic Acid

aids in RBC production, breakdown and utilization of protein, assist in amino acid conversions, formation of nucleic acid for DNA and RNA, important to the division of the cells


maintain cell membrane structure and integrity, important for cells of bone marrow, eye tissue, and intestines


aids in the metabolism and utilization of amino acids, supports blood cells and folic acid production, protection from excess UV exposure

Orotic Acid

involved in Magnesium related functions, precursor for DNA/RNA synthesis

Pangamic Acid

assists in the formation of amino acids, may reduce hypoxia, antioxidant, mild stimulation to the endocrine and nervous systems, aids in detoxification


possible poison to cancer cells

Ascorbic Acid

formation and maintenance of collagen, antioxidant, detoxifier, stimulates the immune system, activates neutrophils, stimulates adrenal function


assist in the absorption of Ascorbic Acid and protect it from oxidation, increase the strength of the capillaries & regulate permiability, reduce histamine release, anti-inflammatory

Pantothenic Acid

supports adrenal cortex function, antistress, enhance metabolism, healthy skin and nerves, cellular metabolism of carbohydrates and fats, synthesis of acetylcholine


detoxification, protein, sulfer, & amino acid metabolism, supports production of GABA, utilization of food for energy, antibody and RBC production


nerve tissue metabolism, stimulate growth and increases appetit in children, "energy" vitamin, stimulates body's utiliation of macronutrients, synthesis of RNA and DNA, production of choline and methionine


needed for fat production and synthesis of fatty acids, formation of new tissue, incorporates amino acids into protein
