The formulation effectively corrects deficiencies of basic B vitamins. It is recommended especially to persons who have an increased requirement for these vitamins, namely convalescents and persons who may be under a heavy physical or mental strain. It will be also useful especially for persons who do not follow a healthy diet, often eat junk food and use stimulants.
Vitamin B1 (thiamine) is a cofactor of over 24 enzymes. It has a key role in metabolic processes and is required for energy production from food. It may reduce fatigue. What is more, it has an impact on nervous system function – it takes part in the formation of myelin surrounding neurons, is involved in the synthesis of GABA, i.e. one of the most important neurotransmitters, and is critical to the production of acetylcholine that is vital to memory formation. The vitamin has also an analgesic effect and is sometimes used to treat back pain.
Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) is a precursor to FMN and FAD – two important coenzymes which are cofactors of key reactions in the body’s energy production. What is more, it cooperates with folates and may lower homocysteine levels. It is critical to the conversion of vitamin A into retinoic acid and supports a healthy skin and mucuous membranes. It shows analgesic properties, reduces pain associated with inflammation and enhances the antinociceptive effect of morphine. Its large doses are also used to treat migraines. This vitamin plays a huge role in iron utilisation in the body and may be helpful in anaemia.
Vitamin B3 (niacin) is one of the substances which are the most effective in increasing serum HDL levels. Furthermore, it helps lower LDL cholesterol levels and thus promotes a healthy cardiovascular system. Thanks to this vitamin, you can slow down the body’s ageing – it has a beneficial impact on mitochondrial function and inhibits the shortening of telomeres, localised at the end of chromosomes. It is worth remembering that when chromosomes do not have telomeres, cells cannot divide and die. This vitamin may also promote the conversion of tryptophan into serotonin, consequently improving sleep quality (tryptophan metabolism leads to the formation of melatonin – a key regulator of the circadian rhythm).
Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) is a precursor to coenzyme A which functions as a cofactor in over 70 enzymatic pathways. It supports the function of adrenal glands and is involved in the synthesis of hormones released by the adrenal cortex. Pantothenic acid deficiency correlates with impaired testosterone production. What is more, studies on animals have revealed that it has also a negative impact on testosterone levels. In athletes, vitamin B5 may improve oxygen utilisation and reduce lactic acid build-up during strenuous exercise. Furthermore, it supports a healthy skin and hair.
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) is a cofactor of over 110 enzymes. Thiamine has a key role in maintaining healthy function of the nervous, osteoarticular, immune and cardiovascular system. It is involved in the production of all the most important neurotransmitters. It has a key role in methylation and activates enzymes necessary for the conversion of homocysteine into cysteine. In addition, it inhibits the release of proinflammatory cytokines. It boosts the uptake of magnesium and helps maintain its healthy levels in the body.
Vitamin B7 (biotin) is commonly associated with improving appearance and is recommended especially for persons who suffer from impaired quality of the skin, hair and nails. Actually, it has many more important roles. It is involved in the formation of myelin which protects neurons and speeds the transmission of nerve impulses. Its large therapeutic doses are used successfully to treat multiple sclerosis. What is more, biotin has a beneficial action on the immune system. Its deficiency may be manifested in severe fatigue and studies on humans and animals show that it often correlates with a low mood and depression.
Vitamin B9 (folic acid) is especially vital to pregnant women – it is critical to foetal development and reduces the incidence of birth defects. Furthermore, the vitamin takes part in methylation and plays a key role in homocysteine metabolism. It is also involved in the synthesis of serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine. Folic acid deficiency has been shown to aggravate symptoms of depression and lead to a poor treatment reponse to antidepressants (e.g. flutoxetine).
Vitamin B12 is actively involved in methylation and metabolism of homocysteine which is dangerous for health. It also takes part in the production of red and white blood cells. It protects against anaemia and boosts the immune system. What is more, it helps maintain healthy nervous system function – it participates in the production of several neurotransmitters and is a prerequisite for the formation of myelin around nerve cells.
To sum up, OLIMP Gold-Vit™ B Forte is an excellent choice for individuals with a deficiency of B vitamins. The supplement is recommended especially for an increased demand for these vitamins in the body. Its adequate doses effectively make up deficiencies and help easily maintain healthy levels of B vitamins in the body.
The supplement contains quite high doses of B vitamins. Because of that, it is recommended to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations and take one tablet daily. It is suggested to take vitamins from this group in the first half of the day – when they are taken in the late evening, they may cause insomnia in some individuals.
B vitamins are water-soluble, but it is not recommended to take them on an empty stomach. Food reduces the risk of the so-called niacin flush. It is manifested in skin redness and a tingling, burning sensation. This condition is not harmful to health and disappears after several minutes, but it is quite unpleasant.

Vitamin B1 (thiamin, vitamin B) improves mental alertness and strengthens the nervous system ensuring the proper functioning of the brain. It improves cardiac and muscular system. It is suportive in the treatment of shingles. Involved in the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats. Natural source of vitamin B1 are brown bread, yeast, eggs, raw vegetables, meat, milk, legumes, cheese.
Vitamin B1 deficiency hinders the processes of decomposition of sugars (catabolism), causes a loss of appetite and disorders in the functioning of the digestive tract, can cause polyneuritis and disease beriberi.
Dosage: Recommended daily intake is 1-2 mg.
Thiamine hydrochloride - a highly bioavailable form of thiamine, also called vitamin B1. Due to an important role that it plays in carbohydrate metabolism, its increased supply is recommended to people with excessively high concentration of sugar in blood. It facilitates their processing in the organism and supports the activities that aim at restoring optimal glycemia. An important role in the metabolism of nutrients is also played by an integral component of carboxylase coenzyme - thiamine pyrophosphate.
Some source suggest the effectiveness of thiamine in relation to the health of the cardiovascular system, apart from decreasing glucose level in blood, it is also reflected in optimization of blood pressure. Although this aspect of effectiveness of vitamin B1 requires further research, it is another argument demonstrating special needs of taking care of proper thiamine supply by people from the risk group of the circulatory system diseases.
Among people who are especially prone to vitamin B1 deficiencies there are also people fighting with excess weight and frequently drinking alcohol.
Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) is soluble in liquids, is involved in the metabolism of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. Required for growth of the organism. Takes part in the production of erythrocytes (red blood cells). It is located in natural foods, such as yeast, meat (especially liver, kidney, heart), milk, fish and green leafy vegetables.
A deficiency of vitamin B2 inhibits the growth, diseases of the mouth, loss and greasy hair, seborrhea and stratification of nails. Increases skin roughness and susceptibility to acne and oily skin.
Dosage: 1-2 mg per day.
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine, pyridoxal, pyridoxamine) is soluble in the liquid. It participates in the metabolism of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. By reducing the amount of fat in the blood do not enable deposition of the body. It helps the absorption of magnesium and vitamin B12 (cobalamin). It works on the muscle antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory pain in the joints. It acts anti. It provides efficient operation of the brain. It increases energy increasing vigor of a man. The demand for vitamin B6 increases during pregnancy and breast-feeding infants. The natural product is: yeast, eggs, wheat germ, meat (liver), wheat bran, nuts, peanuts peanuts, soybeans. There is a hypothesis that can be synthesized by intestinal bacteria.
Deficiency of vitamin B6 causes abnormal metabolism of proteins, decrease in lymphocytes in the blood, causes a feeling of lethargy and fatigue intensifies.
Dosage: 1.5-2.5 mg daily (increased demand during pregnancy and lactation).
What is pyridoxine hydrochloride?
Pyridoxine hydrochloride is a basic, the most commonly used form of vitamin B6 in supplements and fortified foods. It is a vitamin soluble in water. It converts to the active form of the vitamin - pyridoxal phosphate.
Vitamin B6 is a cofactor in many enzymatic reactions. It takes part in the production of many neurotransmitters, such as GABA, serotonin and catecholamines and it takes part in the metabolism of amino acids, carbohydrates and lipids. It is an important factor for the process of the creation of red cells and hemoglobin and its deficit may be one of the factors causing anemia. This vitamin contributes to maintaining proper energy metabolism and is important for maintaining well-being and good psychological condition. Its presence supports the breakdown of pro-inflammatory homocysteine to cysteine and further metabolites, thanks to which it may decrease the risk of atherosclerosis and cardiological incidents.
Pyridoxine hydrochloride may be found in many vitamin B complexes and vitamin-mineral preparations available in the offer of muscle-zone.pl.
Vitamin B12 (cobalamin, cyanocobalamin) is a vitamin soluble in liquids. Participates in the production of red blood cells and is essential in the absorption of iron by the body. It calming effect, a positive effect on concentration and memory. Intensifies its action in cooperation with folic acid (vitamin M). Usually occurs in animal products, fish and dairy products. It contains trace elements.
Vitamin B12 deficiency can lead to pernicious anaemia, general and immunity weakness, inhibiting of growth and damage to the myelin sheath of nerves.
Folic acid - also known as vitamin B9, is a synthetic form of naturally occurring folates. It needs to be transformed to folates in order to be biologically active also in the human organism. Therefore, its supplementation is recommended to people who do not have problems with methylation processes.
The majority of people associate folic acid with the period of pregnancy. It is definitely a justified association. Proper supply of vitamin B9 conditions correct development of the fetus and prevents disorders of neural tube defects in a baby.
Supplementation with folic acid also demonstrates positive influence on the functions of the nervous system of adults. Some sources say that it is conducive to maintaining beneficial emotional states. Moreover, folic acid takes part in the process of erythropoiesis, thanks to which it enables efficient production of red cells.
Supplementation with folic acid should be also considered by men who deal with low sperm quality. It was proven that complementing the level of vitamin B9 is conducive to increasing reproductive abilities of men.
Vitamin B3 (vitamin PP, niacin, nicotinic acid, nicotinamide) is niacinamide niacin. It is used in interaction with vitamins B1, B2 and B6 in the synthesis of hormones during lactation. It provides proper functioning of the brain and nervous system. It is helpful in inflammatory conditions of the skin. Required for synthesis of sex hormone, estrogen, testosterone, cortisone, and insulin. It does not lose its properties in the manufacturing and storage. The source of acquiring vitamins PP are both products of animal origin (the lean meat, eggs, fish) and vegetable origin (dates, figs, hazelnuts, plums).
Dosage: 2-12 mg / day for children, 14 mg / day for women, 16 mg / day for men and 17-18 mg / day for pregnant or nursing women.
Nicotinic acid amide – also known as nicotinamide, belongs to a group of compounds referred to as vitamin B3, along with nicotinic acid and inositol hexanicotinate. It exerts its main biological activity as a precursor to two key coenzymes for efficient energy metabolism of the body: nicotinamide adenine dinucletodide and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate. They are responsible for carrying hydrogen and electrons in the respiratory chain and thus facilitate efficient energy production by the human body.
Nicotinamide supplementation is recommended for active persons not only because of its ability to promote the body’s energy efficiency. It has also a beneficial impact on mind, increases tolerance to stressors and may reduce symptoms of depression. It is pointed out that niacin supplementation correlates positively with sleep quality.
Unlike nicotinic acid, nicotinamide does not show the ability to produce a “flush effect”, namely redness in the face caused by taking large doses of niacin. It has been also shown to influence partly cardiovascular function.
Nicotinamide is also indicated to influence beneficially the absorption of other B vitamins and vitamin D. This compound should be taken with caution by diabetics because it can increase the body’s demand for insulin.
Biotin (vitamin H, co-enzyme R) is in a group of B vitamins, due to the presence of sulphur compounds it is involved in the synthesis of ascorbic acid (vitamin C). Also synthesized in the intestines. It enhances the production of hormones and regulates cholesterol levels. It reduces muscle pain. It prevents hair loss and graying of hair. It soothes the skin inflammations. No toxic effects. Often combined with other B group vitamins and vitamin A. The natural sources of biotin are: whole grain bread, yeast, eggs (yolk), milk, brown rice and cheese.
Daily demand: 100-300 mg per day
Vitamin B5 (calcium pantothenate, pantothenic acid, pantotenol) is part of a complex of B vitamins affects the development of the central nervous system, is the building substance of cells. In the body synthesized by the intestinal bacteria. It occurs in animal products (meat, kidneys, liver) and plants (wheat germ, wheat bran, nuts, grains, green vegetables). Prevents fatigue and excessive stress, accelerates the healing of cuts and wounds, acts as a stimulant for the side effects of the use of antibiotics. Deficiency causes skin changes, and difficulty in blood clotting.
Calcium (element chem. symbol Ca, atomic no. 20, the group of alkaline earth metals) is the basic building substance of bones and teeth, in which stored is 99% of the element, in the form of hydroxylapatite. When building bones and teeth, phosphorus is very important in the right proportion. It is a base-forming element and activator of many enzymes (ATPase) necessary to release the energy of ATP. It has a significant effect on blood clotting and regulates blood pressure and neuromuscular conductivity. Thanks to the reduced permeability of cell membranes, it soothes the symptoms of food allergies. Calcium is actively involved in the metabolism of iron interacts with vitamins A, C and D and phosphorus, magnesium. Natural source of calcium are animal products (dairy products, sardines, salmon, sprats eaten with bones) and plant products (nuts, soybeans, sunflower seeds). Absorption takes place in the small intestine (less in the colon), it has an effect on the level of lactose, insoluble fibre, organic acids, alkalinity (low pH). The best absorption have organic compounds (lactates, amino acid chelates etc.). Obstructing the absorption of calcium is caused by: phytic acid and oxalic acid as well as excess fat. Scientific studies have confirmed that the combination of calcium, magnesium, boron and vitamin D in dose 3 mg / 24h effectively prevent osteoporosis. Supplements on the market are both mono-preparation supplements (enriched with vitamin D3) and multi-component supplements, available at www.muscle-zone.pl.
Calcium deficiency disorders manifested in the construction of the bones (osteoporosis) and iron metabolism. The symptoms are: rickets, cramps and muscle tremor, osteoporosis.
Excess resulting from an overdose of calcium supplements containing vitamin D3 for children and adults overdose of calcium (hypercalcemia). Symptoms of hypercalcemia are: lack of appetite, vomiting and constipation.
The dosage administered in various publications are inconsistent: 800 - 1000 mg / 24 h (100 - 500 mg / 24h)
