Thorne Basic B Complex is a dietary supplement that contains 8 of the most important B vitamins in easily absorbable forms and appropriately high doses. The product is enriched with choline – a substance important for the proper functioning of the body, once classified into the group of B vitamins.
The supplement contains the active forms of vitamins B2, B6, B9, and B12, as well as the highest quality, patent-protected, methylated form of folic acid, Quatrefolic®. This makes the preparation suitable even for people with MTHFR gene mutations. It should be remembered that the MTHFR gene polymorphism is not the only factor that impairs the body's ability to transform inactive forms of vitamins into their biologically active forms. Digestive disorders, poor liver functions, or even old age may be equally problematic. When choosing a supplement, make sure that it contains vitamins in bioactive forms.
B vitamins and choline play an important role in maintaining the proper functioning of the nervous system. They are involved in the synthesis of key neurotransmitters, participate in neurotransmission, and support the production of myelin sheaths that surround the nerve cell dendrites. Deficiency of B vitamins often manifests itself in neurological problems such as memory disorders, problems with concentration, as well as worsening of intellectual efficiency. What is more, due to a decrease in the production of neurotransmitters, caused by a deficiency of B vitamins, there may also occur greater susceptibility to stress and deterioration of mood.
Some B vitamins are involved in hematopoietic processes. The so-called hematopoietic vitamins include primarily folic acid, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12. They take part in all the most important stages of erythrocyte formation. Deficiency of any of them may cause anemia.
B vitamins play an important role in the prevention of cardiovascular disease. Riboflavin, pyridoxine, niacin, folic acid, and cobalamin are particularly active in this field. They condition the proper course of methylation processes and thus help to reduce homocysteine levels. Homocysteine excess promotes damage to blood vessels and may intensify atherosclerotic processes.
To sum up, Thorne Basic B Complex is a comprehensive preparation with B vitamins in easily digestible forms. It should be remembered that these compounds complement each other’s actions, so it is worth taking them together.
Deficiencies of B vitamins are very common. For prophylaxis, it is enough to take 1 capsule a day. However, if your diet is not particularly well-balanced, with little meat of good quality, but you train hard, and thus expose your body to high stress, consider increasing the dose to 2-3 capsules daily.
The preparation contains a large dose of vitamin B2, which in some people may change the color of urine to bright yellow. This is not dangerous and you do not have to worry about it.

Sodium is an important component of the intracellular fluids, and is a regulator of acid-base balance. Along with potassium affects the proper of growth and provides the proper functioning of muscles and nerves. The source of acquisition is table salt (NaCl) and bladderwrack, shellfish, bacon, beef, and of plant beets and carrots. People on salt-free diet should avoid, among others, spicy sauces and smoked meats and sausages.
Sodium deficiency is very rare, at heaving sweating after a long effort (e.g. in the marathon).
Excess sodium increases blood pressure (especially for the elderly), edema and increased thirst. Exceeding the daily dose of 14g a day can cause poisoning.
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).
Salt (sodium chloride, or table salt), natural source of electrolytes (chlorine and potassium), regulating water and electrolyte and acid-base balance of the body, affecting the nervous system and blood pressure. Sodium is an essential element for the proper growth. The proper dose of salt prevents overheating of the body and solar stroke. It provides the proper functioning of muscles and nerves the body. Chlorine in combination with sodium, is involved in the digestive process and maintains acid-base balance in the body, as antitoxin removes toxic products of metabolism in the liver. Salt is a flavour component and preservative of many foods, nutritional supplements and mixtures of electrolytes, available at www.muscle-zone.pl
Dosage: no specific standards of consumption, used so as to provide sufficient amount of electrolytes to the body (sodium and chloride).
What is methylcobalamin?
Methylcobalamin is a biologically active form of vitamin B12. It is one of the two forms of this vitamin that may be used as cofactors in various reactions. It differs from popular cyanocobalamin in the presence of methyl group instead of cyanide, thanks to which it releases the organism from the need of neutralizing this harmful factor.
The methyl group from methylcobalamin may be transferred to homocysteine, thanks to which it comes back in the form of methionine in order to be further converted to SAMe, which is the main donor of methyl groups in our organism. These methyl groups may be then used in the processes of creatine production, in neurotransmitter metabolism and as DNA methylation, thanks to which we achieve proper energy level, better well-being and generally better condition of the organism. B12 is a coenzyme for three enzymes: isomerase, methyltransferase and dehalogenase.
Apart from the influence on the nervous system, the supply of vitamin B12 is also very important for the proper synthesis of red cells as well as hemoglobin and anemia prevention.
Methylcobalamin in mono-supplements and complex vitamin preparations may be found in the offer of muscle-zone.pl.
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
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)
Choline belongs to the soluble in liquids group of B vitamins. It is an organic nitrogen base containing lecithin, and acetylcholine. Together with inositol is involved in the metabolism of fats and cholesterol metabolism, preventing its accumulation on the walls of arteries and deposits in the gallbladder. With the penetration of the brain, contained lecithin improves its action and improves memory. Used in the treatment of age-related diseases (Alzheimer's). It occurs in plant foods: yeast, wheat germ, lecithin, green leafy vegetables and egg yolks.
Choline citrate is a combination of choline with a derivative of citric acid. It is a new form of choline which comprises about 51% of this substance. This means that 1 g of choline citrate corresponds to about 500 mg of choline. Because of that, it contains more choline than e.g. bitartrate.
Choline citrate does not only provide choline but also has one of acetyl groups necessary for the production of acetylcholine – the main neurotransmitter in the central nervous system that is extremely important for normal thought processes and supports cognitive functions.
Choline citrate is combined usually with a more sweet ingredient to neutralise its sour taste. It is available in the form of monopreparations and also as a component of multi-ingredient dietary supplements targeted at improving focus, motivation and psychomotor skills.
