As a complex, B vitamins play important roles in nearly all of the physiological systems in the body. Some of the key supportive roles include nutrient and energy metabolism, as well as production of DNA, hemoglobin, neurotransmitters and hormones. Optimal levels of B vitamins have been associated with cellular, cardiovascular, neurological and psychological health. B vitamins are essential to basal mitochondrial function as metabolic coenzymes, playing a key role in energy production and nutrient metabolism.
Active B Complex
A balanced, hypoallergenic B-complex featuring the active forms of vitamins B1, B2, B6, B12 and Quatrefolic® brand of (6S)-5-methyltetrahydrofolate.
Vitamin D/K2 Liquid 1oz
Vitamin K2 exerts a more powerful influence on bone than does vitamin K1. Vitamin K2 is a series of molecules known as menaquinones. The most common and well-studied of the menaquinones is MK-4. Thorne Research's vitamin K2 is MK-4. Vitamin K is essential for normal cell formation and to help maintain a healthy cardiovascular system. It is essential to maintain an optimal level of vitamin D through all stages of life, from fetal development to old age. Vitamin D helps support a number of important systems in the body, including muscle and bone health, as well as cardiovascular and immune function. Combining vitamins D and K might provide synergistic protection of these systems. One study in postmenopausal women found a combination of minerals along with vitamins D and K maintained healthy artery elasticity, compared to two other groups of women who received either minerals with vitamin D but not vitamin K, or placebo.
Cortisol, often referred to as the “stress hormone,” is produced by the adrenal cortex in response to signals from the hypothalamus and pituitary gland, as part of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis. Cortisol is perhaps the most important hormone involved in the adaptation process. Cortisol Manager is formulated with stress-reducing ingredients and botanicals to promote relaxation, help alleviate fatigue, and support healthy cortisol levels. By balancing cortisol levels, Cortisol Manager can help reduce stress, which supports a restful night’s sleep without diminishing daytime alertness.
