B Complex Vitamins are critical for many processes inherent to life. They serve as cofactors for enzymatic reactions, and are necessary for gene expression, oxidation-reduction (redox) reactions, energy production, detoxification, and formation of other biologically essential compounds. All the B vitamins play a role in mitochondrial function, and deficiencies may be associated with oxidative stress and mitochondrial damage.
Although many of the B Vitamins are present in the diet particular in an era of “food fortification,” a large portion of the population still experiences deficiencies, particularly of B6, B12 and folate. Deficiencies may be attributable to age, hypochlorhydria, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, alcohol use, poor nutritional intake and use of medications such as proton-pump inhibitors, diuretics, metformin, and hormonal contraceptives. In fact, most people who eat a standard urban diet and lead a typical urban lifestyle is SURE to have compromised digestion and gastrointestinal function to a certain degree. It might be the lack of pepsin or HCL in the stomach, lack of pancreatic enzymes, lack of friendly bacteria, the presence of leaky gut, lack of transporters, and so much more!
Although serum levels of B12, B6 and folate may suggest sufficient levels compared to laboratory ranges, measurement of the metabolites homocysteine and methylmalonic acid suggest that tissue deficiencies are quite prevalent. Genetic polymorphisms also may impact the ability of specific forms of B Vitamins (e.g. folic acid used in food fortification and in cheap vitamin supplements) to meet the body’s needs.

Methyl B-Complex is an innovative formula containing the vitamins B1 (thiamine hydrochloride), B2 (as riboflavin 5-phosphate), B3 (as equal mix of niacin and niacinamide), B5 (as calcium pantothenate), B6 (as pyroxadal 5-phosphate), B7 (biotin), B9 (as folinic acid), B12 (as methylcobalamin), betaine anhydrous (trimethylglycine/TMG), and hydroethanolic extract of milk thistle. The B vitamins are water soluble, meaning the body cannot store them for later use and needs a daily supply of them to retain healthy levels. They are present in a variety of foods, but common food storage and preparation methods frequently erase or greatly lower the B vitamins in them. Each of the B vitamins specializes in promoting health in different parts of the body, so obtaining all of them helps fully cover one’s health. All of the B vitamins also support appetite, vision, skin health, the nervous system, and the formation of red blood cells.
This specialized B-complex promotes proper cell function through methylation, which works at the cellular level to switch genes in DNA on and off as needed.1 Our genes contain instructional data for the body, telling cells what to do, when, and how to do it. When they are switched on and off properly it prevents the body from doing things it shouldn’t such as abnormally growing cells. By controlling the functions of these genes, Methyl B-Complex promotes normal human development and can prevent genetic and epigenetic diseases. It also facilitates safe detoxification and helps reverse potential epigenetic changes brought about by toxin exposures and pathogens similar to how antioxidants work to heal and protect cells from the damage of free radicals. By removing toxins and inputting the highest quality compounds, Methyl B-Complex helps restore your highest genetic potential, enhancing general health and energy levels.
This liposomal B-Complex is the first of its kind to pack such a complex array of B-vitamin chemistry into a single, comprehensive product. The use of folinic acid along with activated forms of B2 and B6, methyl B12, and trimethylglycine provides all of the factors necessary for healthy methylation processes, without forcing methylation, creating “methyl traps” or hypermethylation symptoms. Methyl traps occur when the body improperly tries to regulate the gene expressions, leading to more harm than good. It can occur in less specialized products meant to help methylation which fail to work naturally with the body and trigger alarm systems and other cellular mishaps. By using only natural ingredients and supporting the supplement with folic acid, Methyl B-Complex can avoid any unwanted side effects. In addition, hydroethanolic (full spectrum) milk thistle extract supports hepatic metabolism and detoxification, enhances gall bladder/bile flow with the liver up-regulation and detoxification brought about by the B-vitamins to prevent any side effects even further.
Every single ingredient is stringently selected. Folinic acid, a tetrahydrofolic acid derivative, provides a form of folate which circumvents genetic issues that affect folate transport or metabolism. The liposomal format bypasses the gastrointestinal insufficiencies that adversely impact B Vitamin absorption for many, delivering the phospholipid encased B Vitamin package directly into circulation.
Liposomes are made of phospholipids and supplemental compounds. The supplement is kept safely in the center of the liposome while the phospholipids enclose it and transport it across cellular barriers, even the blood-brain barrier. Phospholipids are the building blocks of all the body’s cell membranes, so the body recognizes the liposome as natural and doesn’t attempt to break it down or remove it from the body. Also, the phospholipids used by Quicksilver Scientific feed the body’s cell membranes and promote proper cell function.
Directions: Take 2 pumps by mouth, 2 times daily. Hold in mouth for 30 seconds before swallowing. Best taken on an empty stomach at least 10 minutes before meals.
