Tropical Oasis - Liquid B-Complex - 16 oz. (480 mL)
Tropical Oasis Liquid B-Complex with Energy Maximizing Herbs gives you just the energy you need for an active life. Tropical Oasis Liquid B-Complex contains the B vitamins which are a group of water-soluble vitamins that play important roles in cell metabolism. Supplements containing all eight are referred to as a vitamin B complex.
Tropical Oasis Liquid B-Complex Highlights:
- Important for cell metabolism
- Support and increase the rate of metabolism
- Maintain healthy skin and muscle tone
- Enhance immune and nervous system function
- Promote cell growth and division, including that of the red blood cells that help prevent anemia.
- B vitamins are water soluable
- B Complex refers to a combination of all eight B vitamins
The vitamin B-complex refers to all of the known essential water-soluble vitamins except for vitamin C. These include thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), niacin (vitamin B3), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxine (vitamin B6), biotin, folic acid and the cobalamins (vitamin B12).
"Vitamin B" was once thought to be a single nutrient that existed in extracts of rice, liver, or yeast. Researchers later discovered these extracts contained several vitamins, which were given distinguishing numbers. Unfortunately, this has led to an erroneous belief among non-scientists that these vitamins have a special relationship to each other. Further adding to confusion has been the "unofficial" designation of other substances as members of the B-complex, such as choline, inositol, and para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA), even though they are not essential vitamins.
Each member of the B-complex has a unique structure and performs unique functions in the human body. Vitamins B1, B2, B3, and biotin participate in different aspects of energy production, vitamin B6 is essential for amino acid metabolism, and vitamin B12 and folic acid facilitate steps required for cell division. Each of these vitamins has many additional functions. However, contrary to popular belief, no functions require all B-complex vitamins simultaneously.
Human requirements for members of the B-complex vary considerably—from 3 mcg per day for vitamin B12 to 18 mg per day for vitamin B3 in adult males, for example. Therefore, taking equal amounts of each one—as provided in many B-complex supplements—makes little sense. Furthermore, there is little evidence supporting the use of megadoses of B-complex vitamins to combat everyday stress, boost energy, or control food cravings, unless a person has a deficiency of one or more of them. Again, contrary to popular belief, there is no evidence indicating people should take all B vitamins to avoid an imbalance when one or more individual B vitamin is taken for a specific health condition.
Most multivitamin-mineral products contain the B-complex along with the rest of the essential vitamins and minerals. Since they are more complete than B-complex vitamins alone, multiple vitamin-mineral supplements are recommended to improve overall micronutrient intake and prevent deficiencies.
About Tropical Oasis

They want you to know them, their products, and their mission.
Seldom do we know where the things we buy come from or why they were made. I feel it is important to tell those stories, and for that reason I would like to share with you their story and the reasons why they founded Tropical Oasis.
In 1996, I was a struggling young salesman working out of my 1970’s house in smoggy Houston, Texas. I remember contemplating my uncertain future as I sat in my drab spare bedroom/converted sales office, sipping on my daily dose of coffee. Little did I know that the coffee I was sipping, as well as everything I consumed made with my tap water, was slowing poisoning my system. Over the three years I had been in the house, I attributed my lagging speed and draining energy to job pressure and just getting older. Then, I discovered that the rusting iron pipes under my house had been leeching contaminants into every drop of water I drank.
My brother Terry was living in Dallas at the time, and when I told him what had happened, he immediately sent me a bottle of liquid vitamin and minerals and insisted I start taking it as soon as it arrived. Soon after, I started feeling better, but then I broke out into a severe red rash all over my body.
Worried about the rash and what could be causing it, I started researching nutrition, toxins, and contaminants. What I found was that my body was going into the first stages of detoxification with the help of the liquid supplements I was taking. After this experience, I realized the power and benefits of liquid nutritional supplements and delved deeply into learning more about nutrition.
With my passion for more knowledge, I became a certified nutritional counselor and continued researching and reading all the latest studies regarding nutrition and dangerous toxins in our food supply, a practice I continue today. I saw a true need to create liquid supplements based upon the idea of cellular nutrition to battle the onslaught of toxins in our industrial world. And with that vision, together with my brother, they founded Tropical Oasis.
A few years later, Inc. 500 listed Tropical Oasis as one of the fastest growing privately owned companies in America, and they haven't looked back since. They still hold true to their vision and strive to create the most effective supplements with the highest quality, natural ingredients available. They don't wait for government regulations to tell us something is unhealthy; they stay proactive to protect their health and yours. Each day brings new advancements and improvements that they continually incorporate into their product line. With over 20 products manufactured here in Texas, USA, you can feel safe knowing that products from Tropical Oasis are what they take for themselves and for our families.
From all of us at Tropical Oasis, thank you for your trust and they wish you and your families the best of health!
