VITAMIN B COMPLEX INJECTION provides the water soluble vitamins which
are essential to carbohydrate and fat metabolism, as well as for protein
Thiamine (Vitamin B1) helps maintain normal energy metabolism, and is
critical to maintenance of normal muscle and nerve function. High doses help
Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) helps cells produce energy. It is also required for
growth and for health of skin and mucous membranes, as well as vision.
Nicotinamide (Vitamin B3) is vital for red blood cell formation, and is required
for normal metabolism in all cells. Important in maintaining healthy skin and
Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6) is an essential part of protein and amino acid
metabolism, and in the formation of new proteins including haemoglobin. It is
critical to nervous function and vision, maintains skin integrity, and is involved
in red blood cell formation.
Pantothenate (Vitamin B5) plays a key role in energy metabolism, and is
necessary in enzymes which make and carry glucose and fatty acids for
energy supply. Vitamin B5 is involved in the manufacture of adrenal hormones
and brain neurotransmitters. It is necessary for healthy skin and hair coat and
has a role in reproduction.
Cyanocobalamin (Vitamin B12) forms part of the coenzymes essential for all
cells, particularly rapid turnover cells such as red blood cells, muscle and
The B COMPLEX VITAMINS are intimately involved with red blood cell
formation. They are all closely dependant on each other, so the absence of
one will critically effect the activity of all others. As water soluble vitamins,
they need to be taken in on a daily basis, and they are equally rapidly
excreted, so B COMPLEX VITAMINS must be supplemented on a regular
basis. The need for all B COMPLEX VITAMINS is significantly increased in all
performance and working horses and dogs under stress. Animals under
stress frequently have poor appetites, which may be stimulated by the B
Additionally B COMPLEX VITAMINS are of value in recovery from parasitic
burdens, injury, surgery and illness, and in old age.
