Innovative oral spray with full sprectrum of B vitamins
Valens B-Complex spray is a convenient food supplement in the form of an oral spray with a pleasant orange flavor. Oral application makes the product easier to use and ensures better absorption in the mouth. That is especially important for those with limited absorption in digestive system.
Valens B-Complex contains a full spectrum of B vitamins. Thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, biotin, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12 contribute to normal energy-yielding metabolism and normal functioning of the nervous system. Riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B6, folic acid and vitamin B12 contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. Riboflavin, biotin and niacin contribute to the maintenance of normal skin.
We recommend Valens B-Complex to vegans and vegetarians, as they are more likely to have vitamin B deficiency since foods of vegetable origin have poor content of vitamin B. It is also recommended for elderly (after 50), pregnant women and physically active people.

What is B-Complex?
B-complex is a class of water-soluble vitamins hat have a chemically distinct compound but often coexist in the same foods. Food supplements that contain the whole specter of vitamin B are commonly named B-Complex. There are eight B vitamins: thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), B6, biotin (B7), folic acid/folate (B9), B12.
They all have names and number. Some are better known by their names, and others by the number.
Why does deficiency of vitamin B occur in the first place?
There are a lot of reasons why one cannot obtain enough B vitamins through a diet only. Deficiency most often happen with older adults, because of the limited absortion in digestive system. Since B vitamins are most often found in meat, vegans and vegetarians are more likely to suffer from B vitamins deficiency.
Certain groups, such as pregnant women, also need larger amounts of some types of vitamin B. Misuse of alcohol, coffee and sugar can result in poor absorption of vitamin B.
Can I consume enough B vitamins with vegan diet only?
To stay healthy, most people don’t need to take a supplement in order to get enough B vitamins. There are plenty of delicious foods available to get all the nutrients you need naturally, as long as you maintain a complete diet of meats, grains, fruits, and vegetables. It is also possible to get enough B vitamins with vegan diet, but vegans and vegetarians are more likely to suffer from B-complex deficiency.
The biggets problem is getting enough vitamin B12 – the sole source of vitamin B12 are meat and dairy products. Food of vegetable origin does not contain vitamin B12 – the only exception are some mushroom species. Taking B12 in the form of food supplements is recommended for those who are on a vegetarian or vegan diet.
