Rated 5 out of 5 by Babs12 Folate VS. folic acid
I bought this product because it has folate and no folic acid which is a synthetic vitamin. Most B-complex vitamins are made with folic acid which I understand is cheap to manufacture. It must be since it is the form used to fortify breakfast cereals.
Also, the price is not prohibitive like some of the other B complex vitamins that contain folate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by YogaDiva The best for me
I use this b-complex as I found I do not process folates. My B-12 levels were really high, but the wrong kind for me. I use 2 daily and I give my husband one.

I was diagnosed with vitamin-B anemia. Taking regular vitamin B supplements proved ineffective. A doctor suggested looking for an "activated" vitamin B as it would be more available to the body for assimilation. I searched and found this product and voila! It seems that my body can assimilate an activated formula and this formula has been amazing. I would highly recommend this supplement to anyone looking for a high quality B supplement.

This is a good supplement. The price is fair, the quality is good, it is convenient to take.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MsSensitivity Nothing like it.
I discovered this activated B-complex several years ago and have not been without it since. My digestive tract is very sensitive to so many things, even certain ingredients in some supplements. I have used many vitamin B supplements over the last 30 years of my life. This is the only vitamin B complex supplement I have found that has no negative effects on my sensitive system. I feel better mentally and physically when I take this activated B-complex. My daughter also uses it and she has shared it with several of her coworkers who now also use it. Even though it costs more than the average B-complex supplement, it is worth every penny.

I like the (activated) vitamins because they are more easily assimilated by the body especially as we grow older.

B vitamins are very important and I believe these are in the correct form. Folate instead of folic acid for example.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Madelaine My preferred B-complex sup
This is my favorite B-complex product. It contains the active forms of the B-complex vits.. Not everyone can metabolize all B vits to their active forms efficiently; so taking the active forms ensures that your body has what it needs. For example, from genetic testing, I know that my body cannot form the active form of folate efficiently. Activated B-complex costs a bit more, but Swanson had the best price and great sales too.. This is the B-complex I will buy from now on.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Terry5 Low Biotin
I like this B-Complex better than many. But, this only has 17% Biotin. That's very disappointing. That's not "high potency". I don't want to have to take a separate biotin supplement. I can't understand why they didn't include anywhere near adequate Biotin. Also, Inositol hexanicotinate has been shown to not improve lipids. I would prefer Nicotinic acid. (And, not niacinamide either since it inhibits SIRT1.) I also wish it had more B1.

When I switched to a bioavailable B complex formula I noticed a subtle increase in energy.
My growing understanding of how B complex affects the body lead me to this product.

I like that this contains methyl B12 and a methyl folate instead of folic acid. I feel it helps me have more energy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer This product was recommended to me. I was told my body will get what it needs and get rid of the rest, so taking something labeled "high potency" didn't scare me. I recommend for anyone who needs the added B boost in your system.

Swanson has come up with what I feel is THE BEST B-Complex formula available. This exceptional product contains the most biologically active forms of each of the B complex vitamins (1, 2, 3, 5, 6, Folic Acid, B12) in addition to nutrients related to the B family. I have complete faith in this product's ability to deliver the myriad benefits associated with these essential nutrients.

I'm fairly new to Swansons, having just learned about this company earlier this year, but I'm quickly becoming regular. I've been very pleased with each item that I've purchased, and this B-complex is no different.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Deedee1054 The best forms of all B vitamins
The most bio-available form of B vitamins. Especially delighted with the quatrefolic/5MTHF form instead of run-of-the-mill folic acid. Thanks, Swanson! Wish you would have this occasionally on a BOGO sale, since it is otherwise a tad pricey.
