B-Complex with C is a dietary supplement designed as a support to obtain the ideal amount of energy from dietary sources. The company behind the product is Pharmavite, which includes the famous line of dietary supplements, Nature Made, one of the top-selling brand of vitamins in the USA. The company is established in Northridge, California and it was developed in 1971. In 1989, the company was bought by a Japanese pharmaceutical company named Otsuka. They created Nature Made, a line of vitamins and nutritional supplements. For example, SOYJOY is a popular snack bar that is made from soy and fruits.

B-Complex with C is a combination of essential B-vitamins and vitamin C, which are marketed as an effective formula because it offers the ideal levels of energy and promotes a proper immune function. The B complex plays an important role in the production of energy, giving the formula a strong prerequisite for effectiveness. The supplement is recommended for adults who want to improve their energy metabolism, by maximizing the intakes they receive from their diet.

According to the manufacturer, this product is claimed to be very useful for optimal absorption without having any artificial colors, flavors, preservatives or allergens, which makes it suitable for individuals predisposed to allergies.


1) What is B-Complex with C?

B-Complex with C includes many of the B-vitamins and Vitamin C as key ingredients. In the B-vitamins complex there are eight total nutrients, each having various benefits for the body. For example, Vitamin B3 is a great support for the nervous and digestive systems and for our organs. Vitamins B5 and B12 are very useful for a normal development and growth of the cells. All in all, the B vitamins provide major benefits in easing stress, treating anxiety and depression, being a support for the memory, relieving PMS, reducing the risk of heart-diseases, and in energy production processes. All these vitamins and also Vitamin C are water soluble, which means that they are eliminated through urine, and hence constant supplies should be ensured to prevent imbalances,

Vitamin C is one of the safest and most effective nutrients, according to some specialists. It is known to prevent the common cold, support the optimum function of the immune system, help in decreasing the risk of cardiovascular disease, prenatal health problems, eye disease, and even skin wrinkling. Vitamin C is an effective antioxidant hence important benefits against free radical damage should not be overlooked.

3) Does B-Complex with C Work and it is Safe?

B-Complex with C is based on a blend of B-vitamins and the antioxidant Vitamin C. Each vitamin from the B-Complex has a particular function within numerous body processes and benefits important systems and organs of the human body. For instance, Vitamins B1 and B2 are important for the healthy functioning of the heart, nerves, and muscles; Vitamin B3 helps regulate the nervous and digestive systems; Vitamins B5 and B12 are necessary for a normal growth; B6 is essential for a normal function of the immune system and in the energy production processes; B7 regulates hormone production; and Vitamin B9 is used in the production and maintenance of DNA. Vitamin B6 is mainly known to have a major role in maintaining a healthy brain function by participating in the conversion of protein to energy.

But the benefits of a B-vitamins blend go beyond the sum of their individual roles. The entire B complex is composed of water-soluble vitamins, meaning that all excess can be eliminated through urine. Similarly, Vitamin C is water soluble.

B-Complex with C is advertised to contain natural nutrients, similar to those found in foods. But although the ingredients are clinically proven essential for the overall well-being of its users, the entire formulation is not scientifically-researched. More so, the product may interfere with medication prescribed for blood clotting, osteoporosis or antibiotics. This is why it is highly recommended to consult a healthcare practitioner who can fully inform you of the potentially harmful side effects prior to using the formulation.

The recommended dose is one capsule daily with a meal. The Effectiveness of this product is supported by consumers who seem to find the formula useful and inexpensive as compared to similar products.
