Enerex B Stress Free contains 1000 mg of vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant which protects the B complex vitamins from oxidative destruction, as well as provides important stress protection characteristics on its own. Vitamin C is involved in almost every biological and biochemical reaction in the body and stress as well as smoking, fever, antibiotics, aspirin and various contaminants in the environment antagonize vitamin C. The high level of vitamin C in the formula, along with high potency and balanced ratios of the B complex vitamins makes B Stress Free the most effective stress formula available.
Advanced Vitamin B and C Complex Formula
B Stress Free represents the most advanced B complex and vitamin C formula available. Up to now, most similar formulas are based on an arbitrary even amount of the different B vitamins such as 50 mg of each of the B complex members. This practice began many years ago when a clear knowledge of the right proportions of each B vitamin to the other was not fully understood. This practice, while providing high levels of some of the B vitamins, provides less than even the minimum RDA of others. For example the RDA for folic acid is 400 mcg, so a 50 mg/mcg formula would only provide 12.5% of the RDA. Another example is biotin. The RDA for biotin is 150 mcg, so a 50 mg/mcg formula would provide only 33.3% of the RDA. B Stress Free contains a full 1000 mcg of folic acid, a nutrient specifically effective in managing stress, and 150 mcg of biotin, a nutrient intimately involved in energy metabolism.
An ideal 10 to 1 ratio of Folic Acid to Vitamin B12
B Stress Free is formulated to take into account the ratios between the different B complex members based on the 15 year SONA study as undertaken by senior investigators Drs Cheraskin and Ringsdorf of the University of Alabama Medical School, with special emphasis on the particular B vitamins that are directly effective in stress management such as folic acid, vitamin B12 and pantothenic acid. Vitamin B3 as the natural niacin is used rather than the synthetic niacinamide. Unlike niacinamide, niacin helps to lower cholesterol, dilates blood vessels and neutralises tryptamine-rated brain toxins. B Stress Free is also one of the very few formulas to provide an ideal 10 to 1 ratio between folic acid and vitamin B12.
