WHAT DOES IT DO?
Thiamine (Vitamin B1) helps maintain normal energy metabolism, and is critical to maintenance of normal muscle and nerve function. High doses help reduce nervousness.
Riboflalvin (Vitamin B2) helps cells produce energy. It is also required for growth and for health of skin and mucous membranes, as well as vision.
Nicotinamide (Vitamin B3) is vital for red blood cell formation, and is required for normal metabolism in all cells. Important in maintaining healthy skin and coat.
Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6) is an essential part of protein and amino acid metabolism, and in the formation of new proteins including haemoglobin. It is critical to nervous function and vision, maintains skin integrity, and is involved in red blood cell formation.
Pantothenate (Vitamin B5) plays a key role in energy metabolism, and is necessary in enxymes which make and carry glucose and fatty acids for energy supply. Vitamin B5 is involved in the manufacture of adrenal hormones and brain neuotransmitters. It is necessary for healthy skin and hair coat and has a role in reproduction.
Cyanocobalamin (Vitamin B12) forms part of the coenzymes essential for all cells, particularly rapid turnover cells such as red blood cells, muscle and intestinal cells. The B COMPLEX VITAMINS are intimately involved with red blood cell formation. They are all closely dependant on each other, so the absence of one will critically effect the acitivity of all others. As water soluble vitamins, they need to be taken in on a daily basis, and they are equally rapidly excreted, so B COMPLEXT VITAMINS must be supplemented on a regular basis. The need for all B COMPLEX VITAMINS is significantly increased n all performance and working horses under stress. Animals under stress frequently have poor appetites, which may be stimulated by the B COMPLEX VITAMINS. Additionally B COMPLEX VITAMINS are of value in the recovery from parasitic burdens, injury, surgery and illness and in old age.
