Essential-b Complex

Overview of Clarocet Essential-b

The B-complex vitamins play a vital role in chemical processes throughout the brain and body. Modern research shows that unhealthy levels of essential B-vitamins such as B6, B9 and B12 may contribute to poor mood and feelings related to anxiety and depression. Supplementing your diet with essential B-vitamins can have a direct effect on the availability of important neurotransmitters in the brain, such as serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine. Moreover, evidence suggests that B-vitamins are important cofactors that help to balance and metabolize neuro-toxic chemicals that have been linked to anxiety and depression related conditions.

When combined with natural constituents like 5-HTP, SAM-e, St. John’s Wort, and Valerian, B-vitamins work synergistically to help you to feel better.

Vitamin B1 (Thiamine)

B1, or Thiamine, is a water soluble vitamin that is needed in relatively small amounts and is usually available in every day foods such as fortified breads, cereals, pasta, whole grains, lean meats, fish, dried beans, peas, and soybeans.

In a recent clinical study of vitamin B1, young adult females were given either a placebo or 50 mg thiamine, each day for 2 months. Before and after taking the tablets, mood, memory and reaction times were monitored. An improvement in thiamine status was associated with reports of being more clearheaded, composed and energetic. Learn More

Vitamin B3 (Niacin)

B3, or Niacin, is a water soluble vitamin found in dairy products, poultry, fish, lean meats, nuts, and eggs. Clinical research has demonstrated that vitamin B3 supplementation may help to reduce peripheral breakdown of L-Tryptophan. As a result, L-Tryptophan will not be used up for Niacin production in the brain, allowing it to be transported into the central nervous system. It is subsequently metabolized into 5-HTP which leads directly to Serotonin production. Learn More

Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid)

Pantothenic Acid, or B5, is a water soluble vitamin whose food sources include eggs, fish, and milk products. Vitamin B5 has been linked to the synthesis of the neurotransmitter Acetylcholine. Acetylcholine performs a wide variety of functions in the central nervous system and is believed to play an important roll in memory, attention and cognitive functions in the brain. Pantothenic acid is responsible for helping to synthesize a neuro-chemical called Co-enzyme A (CoA) which is then combined with choline to produce the neurotransmitter Acetylcholine. Learn More

Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine HCL)

B6, or Pyridoxine, is a water soluble vitamin found in beans, nuts, legumes, eggs, meats, fish, whole grains, and fortified breads and cereals. In recent clinical studies, researchers found that Vitamin B6, combined with other B-complex vitamins, as well as magnesium supplementation helped to reduce levels of a toxic amino acid called homocysteine. In both studies, similar combinations of therapy lowered homocysteine by nearly 30%. The lowering of homocysteine amino acids may play a part in reducing feelings of anxiety and depression based on studies involving SAM-e and methylation processes

Another study confirms Pyridoxine’s direct effect on GABA and serotonin neurotransmitters and goes on to suggest that higher doses of Pyridoxine may be a positive influence on certain types of dysphoric mental states that may include anxiety, rage, depression and despair.Learn More

Vitamin B9 (Folate, Folic Acid)

Vitamin B9 is closely related to biochemical processes involving S-adenosylmethionine (SAM-e) and homocysteine. Homocysteine is considered a toxic and dangerous bi-product of naturally occurring SAM-e in the body, an oversupply of which has been directly linked to heart disease and depression related symptoms. The neurotoxic effects of homocysteine may play a role in the neurological and psychiatric disturbances that are associated with folate and vitamin B12 deficiency.

Folate’s mechanism of action has also been implicated in biochemical processes in the brain involving neurotransmitters like serotonin. Learn More

Vitamin 12 (Cyanocobalamin)

The National Institute of Health suggests that a deficiency of vitamin B12 can contribute to feelings of stress and anxiety. The link between vitamin b12 deficiency and depression related symptoms has also been demonstrated in clinical studies and case reports involving hundreds of patients. Learn More

Vitamin H (Biotin)

Biotin is essential to the activity of many enzyme systems and for proper nervous system function. As a cofactor to many biological processes, biotin works with other B-Complex vitamins like B9, B12, B5 and Choline to facilitate the production of key neurotransmitters that have been linked to cognitive function, memory and emotional well being. Learn More

Which Clarocet is right for me?

Talk to your doctor if your symptoms occur frequently, if they worsen over time or if they impair day-to-day life in any way. Symptoms lasting longer than 2 to 6 weeks, or those that go away for a time and then come back could mean that you have a diagnosable emotional health condition. Dietary supplements are not adequate treatments for conditions such as generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder or panic disorder. They should not be used as a replacement for prescribed medication to treat these conditions unless otherwise recommended by your doctor.
