Why it's Good
Manufactured in the UK
B Complex is formulated to provide all of the B vitamins needed to produce energy from the food that we eat. Many modern diets lack sufficient levels of vitamin B12, which can lead to feelings of deep fatigue, mood changes and prevents you from feeling your best and performing at your highest energy level.
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is needed for the mitochondria, which are the tiny energy centres in each of our cells. Not only does CoQ10 scavenge and destroy free radicals that can cause inflammatory disease, it sparks energy production in every cell of your body.

Our Honest Opinion
There is a wealth of scientific evidence to show that B vitamins are needed for their contribution to a normal energy-yielding metabolism. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has published numerous scientific opinions to this effect. There is emerging research confirming the importance of CoQ10 as an energy-producing nutrient. Studies also suggest that some medications may interfere with the body’s C0Q10 production.
B vitamins are needed for energy production
B vitamins are required for many metabolic reactions within the body. Any increased physical and mental activity increases the body’s requirement for B vitamins, as they are involved in the processing of carbohydrates and fats for energy production. B vitamins are needed to help form haemoglobin in red blood cells, a major requirement of oxygen delivery to the muscles needed in energy production.
CoQ10 improves energy
CoQ10 exists in the mitochondria, which are the tiny energy centres in each of our cells. CoQ10 sparks energy production in every cell of your body. Although CoQ10 is produced naturally in the body, production wanes dramatically with age and in the presence of specific diseases. Certain medications, especially cholesterol-blocking statins can also interfere with CoQ10 production. One recent study found a beneficial effect when supplementing CoQ10 to patients with high blood pressure and heart problems.
Vitamin B12 is needed for healthy blood cells
Vitamin B12 works closely with folate to help make red blood cells and to help iron work better in the body. It is only available from animal products, therefore vegans and vegetarians may be deficient in vitamin B12. It is not uncommon for older people to be mildly deficient, as they have less stomach acid, which the body needs to absorb B12. A recent review in the British Medical Journal reported that vitamin B12 deficiency amongst the population is significant, especially in the elderly population.
Iron helps transport oxygen
Iron deficiency is a common nutritional deficiency and is most commonly linked to the development of anaemia, which happens when you don’t produce enough healthy red blood cells. Iron helps metabolise proteins and plays a role in the production of haemoglobin and red blood cells, helping to prevent anaemia from forming. Low iron levels are typically caused by blood loss, poor diet, or an inability to absorb enough iron from food. Anaemia usually results in low energy levels, but can affect many parts of the body from the brain to the immune system.
