Vital For Robust Health
The whole B-complex family of vitamins - especially folic acid and vitamin B12 - are necessary for optimal health. While they may not be as famous as vitamin C, the B vitamins - especially folate - are certainly making a name for themselves in the news these days. In fact, in 1998, the Food and Nutrition Board, the group within the National Academy of Sciences that sets the Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDAs), published revised RDAs, now called Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs), for the B vitamins.
Get the Whole B Complex of Benefits
The B vitamins work together as a team, which is why it is generally recommended to take a supplement with the whole vitamin B-complex family, rather than individual, isolated B vitamins. The whole B family is needed to help keep the body in balance and harmony for greater physical, emotional and mental health for you and your family.
Even if you could eat large amounts of foods rich in B vitamins, such as fruits, vegetables and grains, you would still typically fall short of the desired daily intake of B vitamins. Why? Research shows that the nutrient content of our food has been drastically decreased due to poor soil health and extensive pesticide use in the U.S. So, one of the best ways to assure you’re getting enough B vitamins is to take a natural-source B-complex supplement such as Max B-ND™.
Does your vitamin B complex product contain real B vitamins?
About 99% of all vitamin B products on the market today are synthetically made in a laboratory. Despite marketing claims, these laboratory-produced vitamins are not natural B vitamins – and far from it. They are chemically synthesized molecules manufactured in a test tube, typically from coal tar derivatives. Ouch! These synthetic molecules mimic only one component of the multitude of life-supporting nutrient complexes found in real, natural B vitamins.
Get "B" Vitamins on Your "A" List
Let’s take at look at the whole “B” family - the B-complex and other B-like vitamins - and why they need to be on your “A” list of “must-have” nutrients.
Folic Acid (5-methyltetrahydrofolate form). Imagine eating 2 heads of lettuce, 3 apples, 5 bananas, and 7 carrots every day to try to get the minimum requirement of folate (400 micrograms). Even if you could eat large amounts of folate-rich foods, research shows that folic acid derived from food may be less readily assimilated and utilized than the end-chain form of folic acid as found in Max B-ND.
Women of child-bearing age are now being urged to increase their folic acid intake in order to help prevent neural tube defects in infants (which can cause brain and spinal defects) and spina bifida (where a segment of the spinal nerve cord grows outside the bony spinal column). In addition, adequate levels of folate have been associated with lower levels of homocysteine in the blood (a risk factor for serious heart and immune concerns).
Vitamin B12 (5-deoxyadenosylcobalamin, fully reacted coenzyme form). Vitamin B12 plays a key role in the body and is also associated with lower levels of homocysteine in the blood. It is required for energy production and overall health of the body, including red blood cell formation. Other roles of B12 include proper nervous system development and prevention of infertility in men. It has also been shown to improve memory and promote heart health. Lack of sufficient amounts of vitamin B12 can create a deficiency or absorption problems that can lead to pernicious anemia. Research has shown that vitamin B12 levels decline as we age. This may be due to poorer food choices, reduced intake of B12 or poor absorption.
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxal-5-phosphate form). Like folate and B12, vitamin B6 has also been associated with lower levels of homocysteine. In addition, vitamin B6 is well known in this computer age for its role in relieving carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), the weakness, numbness, tingling, and pain in wrists and arms caused by repetitive motion. Those most susceptible to CTS include computer operators, supermarket checkers, production line assemblers, carpenters and seamstresses. In their book, “Vitamin B6 Therapy”, John Marion Ellis, M.D. and Jean Pamplin explain how B6 helps carpal tunnel syndrome: “Vitamin B6 works by improving the function of the synovium, the sheath that surrounds the tendons.” In addition, they explain how insulin resistance (elevated blood glucose levels now at crisis proportions in the U.S. due to eating refined sugar and grains) causes reduced blood levels of B6 which then lowers both pancreatic and circulating insulin levels.
Vitamin B5 (coenzyme A form). Best known as pantothenic acid, vitamin B5 was discovered by Dr. Roger Williams who spearheaded the concept of biochemical individuality. It has long been considered the “anti-stress” vitamin for its role in helping to balance adrenal gland function and thus, helps us cope with stress better. In his book, “The Vitamin Revolution”, Michael Janson, M.D., says that insufficient amounts of pantothenic acid can lead to fatigue, mood imbalances and sleep concerns. Until now, only the inferior form of vitamin B5, d-calcium pantothenate, was available. Now, for the first time in history the superior end-chain form of B5 (coenzyme A) is available and the high powered derivative acetyl coenzyme A as well in a stable form all available in Max B-ND. No other product on earth can directly deliver this form at any price.
Vitamin B3 (inositol hexanicotinamide, the no-flush form). Vitamin B3 helps improve blood circulation by dilating arteries — especially important in the extremities and brain. This vitamin is a key factor in metabolizing carbohydrates, boosting energy and maintaining a healthy brain and nervous system.
Vitamin B2 (riboflavin-5 phosphate form). Vitamin B2 is important in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fat and protein and therefore, in creating energy. B2 also supports eye and skin health. The book, “The Natural Pharmacy”, points out that B2 also helps boost athletic performance, promotes brain health and assists in maintaining healthy, moist lips.
Vitamin B1 (thiamin cocarboxylase form). Like B2, vitamin B1 is essential for metabolizing carbohydrates, fat and protein — and thus, boosting energy. It supports the nervous system and healthy emotional balance. Insufficient vitamin B1 can create a loss of appetite, memory and mood imbalances and sluggish thinking. Many studies show that B1 enhances the ability to learn and retain knowledge.
Inositol . Inositol is involved in immunity, liver function and cell membrane health. It promotes healthy liver metabolism, skin health and heart function, according to Dr. Berkson, author of “All About B Vitamins”. Inositol has been used by healthcare practitioners for severe mental imbalances.
Choline . In 1998, for the first time, choline was classified as an essential B vitamin. Among many roles that it plays, choline is important for liver function, heart health, achieving optimal physical performance and healthy memory and mental balance.
Biotin . Even after biotin’s initial discovery, it took nearly 40 years of research for it to be fully recognized as a vitamin. Its roles include breaking down fats and creating new ones, constructing proteins from amino acids, and helping to manufacture various building blocks of genes.

Q.What makes Max B-ND so unique?
A. According to the manufacturer, Premier Research Labs, its uniqueness includes:
- The world's first, live-source B vitamins made from proprietary probiotic fermentation for unparalleled absorption
- International patent-pending technology
- Highly active, "living" B vitamins in their end-chain forms which deliver high cellular resonance* (Other B vitamin products are typically synthetic with no cellular resonance)
- Maximum stress support, anti-aging, high energy, brain rejuvenation, heart health and mood balance*
- Research suggests live sources of B vitamins are safest and most effective, especially in long term use*
Q. Can the certified organic alcohol be removed if one prefers?
A. Yes, simply heat the with very warm water to evaporate the alcohol. The temperature should not exceed 110 degrees F.
Q. Can the product be absorbed quicker or more directly sublingually (under tongue)?
A. Not necessarily. This product contains organic alcohol to preserve the Max-B, but it will also help with absorption in the body. They have not seen or heard of any results which shows sublingual delivery being any better absorbed than just drinking or sipping on the liquid with water.
Q. Is Max B-ND Gluten Free?
