Solaray B Complex Review
What You Should Know
Solaray B Complex claims to increase energy and muscle tone, but these claims are not supported with clinical research. B vitamins naturally occur in food and are often included in a daily multivitamin. Some dieters need B vitamin supplementation, but not all dieters fall into this category. B vitamins are water-soluble, so the body breaks down supplements like Solaray B Complex and uses what it needs immediately. The remaining vitamins are quickly flushed out of the body during urination. Urine may take on a yellow tint hours after taking Solaray B Complex or other form of B vitamin supplement.
There is an official website for Solaray B Complex and other Solaray products. We also found the supplement on several vitamin retailer websites. The price is higher than an over the counter B Complex but the ingredient list is nearly identical to cheaper supplements.
List of Ingredients
Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin B12, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid, PABA, Choline Bitartrate and Inositol.
Other Ingredients: Vegetable Cellulose (Capsule), Whole Food Base (Whole Rice Concentrate Including Bran, Germ And Polishings, Pure Aloe Vera Gel), Silica, And Magnesium Stearate.
Dieters often believe the product descriptions listed for natural supplements, but there is a bit of deception taking place some of the time. B vitamins have the effect listed in the description for Solaray B Complex, but taking more B vitamins than the body naturally gets from food is not proven to improve these functions in all dieters.
Dieters should know there is no toxicity level for most B vitamins, so taking more is not necessarily dangerous, just costly. B vitamins are washed out with urine after only a few hours, so it is necessary to take oral B vitamins multiple times a day for optimal effect. Solaray B Complex suggests taking one capsule per day, according to the product label.
The ingredients in Solaray B Complex are likely found in multivitamins, so the average dieter does not need to take more B vitamins if they are taking a multivitamin in the morning. The directions for Solaray B Complex state the dieter should take one capsule per day with a meal, but it does not say when to take that capsule. Taking this supplement later in the day could promote energy, slightly, but the effect is not the same as taking caffeine or a weight loss supplement.
- There is no known toxicity level for most B vitamins.
- The supplement is sold on the official Solaray website and third party websites.
- May promote energy, for a short period of time.
- Contains the same B vitamins found in multivitamins.
- Costs more than over the counter varieties of B Complex.
- Will not promote muscle tone and strength.
- Will not promote weight loss.
Solaray B Complex is a good source of B vitamins, but the claims made in the product description are more of a general B vitamin definition than anything else. B vitamins do promote muscle tone, strength and energy, but taking more of these vitamins does not necessarily mean more muscle tone, strength and energy.
