A lot has been written and discussed about the effectiveness of B Complex in the treatment of stress. It is much rarer to read about the relative effectiveness of 100% food B Complex versus its much more common synthetic isolated form. This is interesting since synthetic isolates comprise about 98 percent of all B Complex on the market. Even some so-called whole food based brands contain isolated USP niacinamide, pyridoxine hydrochloride, or other isolated “nutrients” in their B Complex formulas. The devil is in the details. You have to read the label and even dig a little deeper to make sure you’re getting 100% food B Complex.
Dr. Thiel, renowned naturopath and researcher points out, “There is no doubt that we live in a high stress society. Not only do we live and work in unnatural environments, our foods are vastly different than they were 150 years ago. Until relatively recently, no human ever consumed synthesized isolated USP vitamins. Should stress vitamin formulas be primarily synthetic substances that can add stresses to the body? We think not! Food nutrients are natural for the body and are preferred for stress handling for humans.”
One reason the 100% Food B Stress Complex from Food Research is superior is because it contains important enzymes, peptides, and phytonutrients that are critical to the utilization of vitamins and minerals by the body and which are not present in synthetic isolated USP nutrients. Studies have shown that Food B vitamins are between 38% and 294% better absorbed into the blood compared with the typical USP B vitamins.
