Active Ingredients: Vitamin B-1 (as Benfotiamine), Riboflavin (as active riboflavin-5-phosphate), Vitamin B3 (as active niacinamide), Vitamin B6 (as active pyridoxal-5-phosphate), Folic acid (as Quatrefolic® active 5-MTHF), Vitamin B12 (as active methylcobalamin), D-Biotin, Vitamin B5 (as calcium D-pantothenate), Choline bitarate, Inositol, PABA.
Suggested Use: Take 1 - 2 tablets daily. Or use as directed by your healthcare professional. (If you have trouble sleeping, do not take late in the evening. If taking more than 1 tablet a day, it's usually suggested to space the doses out and take with food.)
Special Note: The presence of bright yellow urine after taking a vitamin B supplement is not a sign that they are all being flushed away. Riboflavin (Vitamin B-2) causes urine to turn a florescent yellow color. The B's are still being absorbed, the color is simply a byproduct. If you have taken regular B vitamins before, you'll notice that with sustained release B's, the neon yellow color will usually be less intense initially, and yet noticeable for longer as it slowly releases at an optimal absorption rate of 6-8 hours.

Activated simply means that the B vitamins are in their active form. Most vitamin B supplement products contain only the inactive forms. Inactive B vitamins require conversion by the liver so they can be absorbed and utilized. But because your liver can only convert them so fast, they are often quickly eliminated from your body before offering much benefit.
With Activated B w/SRT®, the work of conversion is already done for you. And your body gets the vitamins it needs in the form it can instantly use.*
B-vitamins are used by every cell in the body, every second of the day and night. Since they are water-soluble, your body cannot store them and must have a constant supply to keep body systems functioning properly.
Also, when massive amounts of B vitamins are immediately released into the body, unfriendly bacteria in the digestive system may use them as a food source. This is why some people may begin to feel poorly after regular consumption of common vitamin B supplements. Our sustained release technology addresses this issue by providing a steady balanced stream of B vitamins rather than flooding the system all at once.*
P5P (Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate), the active form of Vitamin B6, performs over 30 critical enzymatic reactions in the body, including the manufacture of serotonin and dopamine in the brain. The inactive forms of B6 (pyridoxine hydro-chloride, pyridoxal, or pyridoxamine) have to be converted by the liver to the active form (Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate or P5P) the body needs. Individuals with compromised liver function have difficulty making this conversion and consequently may be at risk of a vitamin B6 deficiency.
Since Vitamin B6 is already difficult to get and convert into its usable form, we give it to you already in its active P5P form. All the benefits are available immediately after absorption - no trouble converting or waiting.
I really think it's making a positive difference in my health and energy level. Thank you!" Donald S. on 23rd Jan 2015
I love the fact that it is sustained released over a 12 hour period and that all the B vitamins are in their active forms. Gives you a steady stream all day long and makes you feel great. Overall this is by far one of the best B complexes I have taken over the years. Thanks Jigsaw!" Alpha7 on 23rd Jan 2015
I used to stumble around every morning until my Iced Triple Grande No Whip Non Fat Black and White Mocha kicked in! :) Now that I've been taking the Activated B for a couple of weeks I'm more alert and have much more energy all day long, without the caffeine crash!!! YAY! I am so thankful for this supplement as I work an average of 65-70 hours a week. It's a life saver!" Tori on 23rd Jan 2015
I am on my second bottle of this product. I purchased this product primarily to increase my energy and mental alertness while maintaining an adequate level of B12. I purchased this product because I was only interested in obtaining a balanced blend of the activated forms of the B vitamins with time release. I take only 1 tablet a day, either in the AM after breakfast, or the PM after lunch. I decide what time based on how I feel or anticipate the day. I have noticed that I have more energy when I take the vitamins than when I do not, and that energy level stays with me for at least 6 hours. My increase in energy level is not dramatic and I was not expecting it to be. But there is a noticeable difference in both my energy level and mental alertness. This will be a staple supplement for me and I highly recommend it not only for its energy and mental alertness effects, but the assurance that you are getting an adequate amount of a balanced blend of the activated forms of the B vitamins, especially the B12. Truly a quality product. Sarge on 23rd Jan 2015
don't usually write reviews as I don't often find a product that works so well for me. Many companies tout their products as the best but fail when it comes to effectiveness. Being in the nutrition field, I have tried tons of different B - Vitamin supplements on the market - both whole food based and synthetic.... none worked. I still felt exhausted, run down and completely listless. Low - energy has been a challenge of mine for many many years so I have always been on the search for a product that could help increase my energy and vitality.
Pretty much from the moment I tried the activated B W/SRT I noticed a huge improvement in my energy levels!! I take 3 a/day and I feel energized throughout most of the day, whereas before I had a hard time focusing and staying awake during the day. I have never taken a B - Vitamin that has given me these effects so much to my amazement and surprise I was thrilled after taking your B - Vitamin!! I am sure the the sustained release technology makes a huge difference in the effectiveness and viability of your product! I wonder what other supplements u are working on? Olive K on 23rd Jan 2015
My dr gave me a prescription for activated B vitamins, but they immediately made my migraines worse. I researched and found they contained aspartame!! After more research of course I found the answer was right here--Jigsaw activated B! Yes they cost more than generics from Wally World. But these work!! Your body can use them, which is why my dr was trying with the prescription. But who needs additives anyway? So the moral is once again, just buy the Jigsaw brand and you will get a great product that works! Beth on 23rd Jan 2015
This has been a great vitamin B. I love that its slowly released over a few hours instead of dumped. Hate it when I run out and have to get some from the local health food store. Hopefully you will be able to keep it in stock longer so we don't run out. :) Diana B. on 23rd Jan 2015
