This is the B-complex that has worked the best for my child with special medical needs.
B-Minus by Seeking Health is a pure vitamin B complex formula that provides thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B6, pantothenic acid, and biotin. It is free of B12 and folate. Niacin assists in the normal functioning of the digestive system, skin, and nerves and is important for the conversion of food to energy. Thiamine, also known as vitamin B1, plays a crucial role in metabolic reactions such as forming adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which every cell of the body uses for energy. Riboflavin is essential for healthy energy levels, supporting healthy immune system function, and maintaining healthy hair, skin, and mucous membranes. P-5-P, or pyridoxal 5'-phosphate, is known as the active "coenzyme" form of vitamin B6. This is because the P-5-P form of B6 is directly used in B6-dependent enzyme functions within the body. In fact, vitamin B6 and P-5-P are needed for more than 100 enzymes - mostly related to protein metabolism. Pantothenic acid, or vitamin B5, assists the other B vitamins in converting food into usable energy. It is also an essential part of the body's ability to produce various enzymes, which act as the catalyst to numerous biochemical reactions in the body. Biotin supports healthy carbohydrate metabolism. It is also essential to healthy hair, skin and nail growth.*
B-Minus is ideal for those who have trouble tolerating methylated B vitamins, allowing for non-methylated or preferred forms of B12 and folate to be added to one’s regimen as needed. It can also be combined with doses of methylfolate and vitamin B12 that are tailored to one’s individual needs for greater flexibility and customization. For an all-in-one B complex with vitamin B12 and methylfolate, consider our B Complex Plus.*

It's so nice to have a B-Complex that does not have Folate due to having the MTHFR mutation. Highly Recommended.
Burns my scalp
I don't know why this is but this pill makes my scalp and sometimes ears feel like they are on fire. for a while I felt like I could tolerate it but today its really bad I might have to quit this pill.
As soon as my husband tried this product he got an allergic reaction in a form of hives on his body. I also felt quite bad - we both have histamine intolerance. At the time we did not know that vitamin B1 is histamine liberator, which probably caused the reaction . As the author of "Dirty Genes" and the person who deals with histamine intolerance through his work, Dr. Lynch could have linked niacin with histamine intolerance, but I could not find it in his book. To make the matter worse, I have also purchased two containers of electrolytes that also contain niacin. Now it is of no use. Use it if you do not have histamine intolerance, otherwise purchase vitamin Bs individually.
