Vitamin B Complex seems to be everywhere these days – in fact, it has so many known benefits and so few drawbacks that we include it in almost all of our IV infusions – but what is B Complex and why is it so important?
Vitamin B Complex actually refers to an entire group of vitamins – no wonder it has so many benefits! Our IV form of Vitamin B Complex includes B1 (Thiamine), B2 (Riboflavin, B3 (Niacin), B5 (Pantothenic Acid), and B6 (Pyridoxine). Together, they mainly work to help your body extract energy from food, but each has its own set of benefits.
A Vitamin B Complex IV infusion is made up of 5 different vitamins, each with their own set of benefits:
While B Complex can be taken orally, IVs are really the most effective, absorb-able ways to get B complex into your system. Oral vitamins must pass through the digestive system and be broken down into a form your body can use – typically resulting in a low amount of the vitamin actually getting absorbed all the way into your bloodstream.
Oral vitamins are also limited by size – you can only fit so much into one pill, so you might not feel the boost just because the amount you absorbed was so small! B complex IV vitamins bypass the stomach altogether, and is already in a form your body can use, so absorption is not an issue.
Most of our clients love getting B Complex infusions weekly, monthly, or whenever they feel like they need a boost for things like energy, anxiety, cholesterol management and hair/skin health. People who drink alcohol regularly should also supplement after drinking, as alcohol has a dramatic impact on thiamine levels. Most of our clients get their B Complex combined with 5 other energy-boosting vitamins in our Myers Cocktail.
AZ IV Medics offers B Complex in most of our packages, and is also available to add-on to any package for $25.
