Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, biotin, choline and folinic acid energy production. detoxification pathway, recycling of glutathione via maintenance of the methyl pool, maintain the proper activity of SAM cycle, neurological development, prevention of free radical damage to the brain, neurotransmitter synthesis and fatty acid.
Detoxification, immune function, stress management, regeneration of healthy tissue, glutathione regeneration, maintenance of the digestive system, endocrine and nervous system.
Bone and connective tissue health, immune system. This vitamin is usually low in individuals who live above the 48th parallel. Treatment of Alzheimer’s and MS. Antioxidant.
Note that this formula contains the vitamin E complex, not just alpha tocopherol. Vitamin E has been shown to be deficient in individuals with DS. Heart protective, nervous system protective. Antioxidant.
