Ingredient Summary: BioCeuticals Mega B Q10
Role of B vitamins in the nervous system
Involved in the synthesis of the neurotransmitters acetylcholine and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). Activates membrane ion channels for nerve conduction.
Involved in the metabolism of the neurotransmitter dopamine. Activates vitamin B6 and folate.[1,2]
Produced from tryptophan. Maintaining adequate levels of vitamin B3 ensures that tryptophan is converted to serotonin instead of vitamin B3. Involved in the synthesis of steroid hormones and the active forms of folate.[1,2]
Involved in adrenal function, steroid hormone production, and the synthesis of acetylcholine. Stress support.
Involved in the production of the neurotransmitters serotonin, GABA, dopamine and noradrenaline. Stress support.[1,3]
Reduces risk of neural tube defects in the embryo. Required for the synthesis of dopamine and noradrenaline. Involved in the conversion of homocysteine to SAMe (S-adenosylmethionine), a serotonin precursor.[3-5]
Involved in the formation of the embryonic neural tube, the myelination of nerve cells and the conversion of homocysteine to SAMe.[1,3,5]
A coenzyme in many cellular reactions. Also has non-coenzyme roles in gene expression, and cell development and growth. Specific, direct neurological roles are unclear.
