Source Naturals - Coenzymate B Complex Sublingual Peppermint Flavor - 120 Tablets
Source Naturals Sublingual Coenzymate B Complex goes directly into your bloodstream in its active form, ready to go to work immediately. In order for B-vitamins to be utilized by the body, they must first be converted into their active coenzyme forms.
Source Naturals Your Liver: The Coenzymator
Your liver is the most vital nutrient processing organ in the body, your major organ of metabolism. while it only weighs about 3% of total body weight, the liver uses about 12% of the body's total energy, and it must generate this energy in its own cells. The liver routinely performs over 500 known functions to regulate your cells' metabolism. It is the "alchemical wizard" of the body, transforming toxins into harmless chemicals for excretion, and regulating carbohydrate, fat, and protein processing. It also is a key regulator of blood sugar, producing glucose, glycogen, and Glucose Tolerance Factor (GTF). With all these responsibilities, the liver, more than ever before, is over burdened, filtering out innumerable toxins that didn't even exist 100 years ago. The impact on our cellular metabolism may be much greater than anyone suspects. When the liver's load becomes too great, the excess waste chemicals are stored in fatty tissues, first in the liver itself, then in other parts of the body. thus, the liver's ability to Coenzymate vitamins into their active forms can be greatly impaired, which can affect our entire biochemistry. In studies with chronic alcoholics, who tend to have damage livers, large doses of B-vitamins were injected directly into the bloodstream. Normally, this would raise the body's coenzyme levels. But in the case of liver-impaired alcoholics, it did not. This malate dehydrogenase, which turns malic acid into oxaloacetate utilizing NAD, or Coenzymated B3.
Source Naturals: The Sublingual Solution
Fortunately, there is a solution to the problem of getting coenzymes intact into our bloodstreams: the sublingual tablet. Sublingual tablets are made to dissolve slowly over 5 to 10 minutes in the mouth so there is ample opportunity for absorption. The oral tissues are richly supplied with tiny blood vessels, called capillaries, just a few cell layers beneath the skin of the cheeks and under the tongue. And, unlike the stomach and small intestine, saliva contains no powerful digestive acids or enzymes to break down the coenzymes before they can be absorbed. As a sublingual coenzyme B tablet dissolves near the capillary membranes, some of the coenzyme molecules will pass through the skin directly into the bloodstream by a process called passive diffusion. Once these coenzyme molecules enter the capillaries in the mouth tissue and the cheeks' buccal membranes, they are carried by the bloodstream throughout the body. One study using both sublingual and oral supplements in this case, of testosterone found that the absorption of the sublingual was twice that of the oral dose.
The Importance of getting B's at Their Best
Along with CoQ10, the B-vitamins and their coenzyme forms are necessary for energy production as part of the Krebs' and glycolytic cycles. these two biochemical cycles are responsible for 90 to 95% of all the energy needed by the body. The coenzyme B vitamins are intricately involved in the synthesis of proteins, hormones, and prostaglandins, and the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats. They are also responsible for the conversion of various amino acids into neurotransmitters (brain chemicals necessary for all our mental function and processes).
Leaders of the Wellness Revolution
Source Naturals was created in 1982 by C.E.O Ira Goldberg to support each individual’s potential to enjoy optimal health. At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned – for the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life – simply didn’t exist. The idea of combining many nutrients, herbs and nutraceuticals in one formulation, though common today, was then a rarity. Source Naturals pioneered the concept with Wellness Formula, now the industry’s #1 immune support product. Source Naturals subsequently introduced numerous award-winning formulas, recognized for their excellence in independent surveys and nutritional analyses. In addition to Wellness, these award-winners include Life Force Multiple, Mega-Kid Multiple, Inflama-Rest, the Skin Eternal line, Higher Mind, Essential Enzymes, Male Response, and more.
Source Naturals’ comprehensive Bio-Aligned Formulas help bring the power of alignment to your body. When formulating, Source Naturals evaluates the underlying causes of system imbalances, and then provides targeted nutrition to interdependent body systems.
