Vitamin B - Threshold Control
Vitamins that form part of the B complex family perform a diverse range of functions throughout the body including forming co-factors in the metabolism of the food we eat, helping to maintain healthy nerve function, assisting in the manufacture of red blood cells and contributing to healthy skin and hair. B vitamins are water-soluble and are not stored, so the body needs a daily supply. The B complex family of nutrients acts synergistically within the body, a possible reflection of the fact that in nature this group of vitamins are found together in foods and not in isolation.

GNLD's Threshold Controlled B Complex is formulated following Nature's Blueprint, using a base of wholefood concentrates to provide members of the B vitamin group in balanced ratios as they would occur naturally in wholefoods. To avoid wastage of nutrients that are not immediately absorbed, GNLD has included Sustained Release technology to ensure a slow, monitored release of Vitamin B into the system.
