Two flavoprotein coenzymes derived from riboflavin—FMN and FAD—are vital for delivering enough oxygen to the brain so it can send nerve signals and messages to the rest of the body.* Without B vitamins, the brain simply wouldn’t get the oxygen and nutrients it so desperately needs.*

No less complexly, pantothenic acid, niacin and thiamine support the general cognitive function, contributing structural integrity and productivity of brain cells4.* In addition, thiamine provides energy to nerve cells and helps in the production of myelin (aka the insulation around nerves).*

And last but not least: vitamin B6, niacin and riboflavin antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties4— all of which support a healthy, well-functioning brain and contribute to the health of the whole body.*
