Advanced B Complex ULTRA is AOR’s best B complex yet. It is based on Advanced B Complex, our award-winning favourite, but with even better absorption and additional benefits for heart health, brain health, and energy. Advanced B Complex ULTRA utilizes time-release technology to enhance absorption, and provides the full spectrum of B vitamins, some of them in multiple forms, for superior efficacy in the body. Advanced B Complex ULTRA is formulated with niacin, the most active form of vitamin B3, and the most effective for heart health and cholesterol. It contains a safe dose of slow-release niacin to minimize the sensation of “flushing”. Advanced B Complex ULTRA is unique in that it also contains Pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ), a B-vitamin-like nutrient that helps support brain health.
A study by Stough et al (2011) investigated the role of B vitamins on mood and psychological strain associated with chronic work stress. Sixty participants completed a 3-month, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial in which personality, work demands, mood, anxiety, and strain were assessed. After 3 months of supplementation with two forms of high-dose vitamin B-complexes, treatment groups reported significantly lower personal strain and a reduction in confusion and depressed/dejected mood.
In a human study conducted by Harris et al (2013), researchers looked at the effects of pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ) on inflammatory and antioxidant pathways. Although this was a small study conducted in only 10 subjects, researchers found that treatment with PQQ led to serum reductions in inflammatory cytokines (cellular messengers), and reduced C-reactive protein levels (CRP is a marker of inflammation that can be tested for in the blood) by about 45%. Researchers also reported findings of increased efficiency of the mitochondria in these subjects (remember, the mitochondria are the “power-houses” of our cells).
Niacin has been long recognized for its ability to improve cholesterol levels, however, the side effect of flushing often deters people from using it. In a 2013 blinded, placebo-controlled study, researcher Dr. Joseph Keenan found that using an extended-release niacin was much better tolerated among patients. Treating patients who had mild-to-moderate abnormalities in cholesterol levels (high LDL or “bad” cholesterol) for 6 weeks with this extended-release niacin led to significant improvements in cholesterol levels. Total cholesterol decreased by 11%, LDL levels decreased by 18%, and HDL (“good” cholesterol) levels increased by 12%.
Directions (Adults): Take 1 tablet 1-2 times daily with food, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner.
Suggested Usage: Advanced B Complex Ultra provides the most active forms of B vitamins in clinically-supported doses and in ratios that the body can utilize, in a time-release formula, for optimal results. With the addition of antioxidant PQQ. These nutrients help metabolize carbohydrates, proteins and fats for energy and support tissue and red blood cell formation.
