The B group of vitamins is an eight-member family of water soluble vitamins which means they are not easily stored in the body and need to be replenished frequently. Their functions are so interrelated that it is suggested they be taken together so they can work harmoniously and perform at their peak levels. Cellular energy production is the most important function of the B complex vitamins and they are known as the catalytic spark plugs of our body. Providing mental and physical energy, supporting healthy blood, a healthy heart, immune system function and a healthy response to stress, the B complex vitamins are essential nutrients for the body.

To further enhance the benefits of Vitamin Code™ RAW B-Complex™, Garden of Life understands the importance of adding the vital nutrients, Biotin and Folic Acid to deliver maximum performance. Often recommended for healthy hair and nails, Biotin, as well as folic acid is used by the body to break down and synthesize amino and nucleic acids which are needed to build new cells, particularly red blood cells. Folic acid or folate is known to support a healthy heart when taken in conjunction with vitamins B6 and B12, and to support already normal homocysteine levels.

Asked on: March 28, 2013 Question: do they use methylcobalamin
00A: The B12 is a whole food form of cobalamin. The vitamins and minerals included in Vitamin Code formulas are delivered in a whole food form as RAW Food-Created Nutrients. The vitamins and minerals are produced through a fermentation process prior to going through Grows process as described below.
The vitamins are grown via our proprietary dual cultivation process using yeast and probiotics. This process utilizes a single isolated vitamin or mineral that is fed to the yeast or probiotic. A specific peptide designed for that particular nutrient is then introduced in order to allow the nutrient to be metabolized (or absorbed) through the yeast’s cell wall.
This process mimics nature, just like when a plant takes an inorganic mineral salt that is naturally occurring in the soil (selenium for example), and absorbs it into its roots, the plant becomes rich in selenium. This process is conducted with two distinct organisms – S. cerevisiae (baker’s yeast) and L. bulgaricus (probiotic culture used in traditional yogurt recipes which is non-dairy). RAW Food-Created Nutrients™ are delivered "body ready".
