Hi bit of a newbie with suppliments.....
I recently purchased
Liquid B Complex
On it it tells me as an adult to take 2 teaspoons per day.
Each teaspoon contains:
Thiamin (as thiamin hydrochloride) 50 mg
Riboflavin 50 mg
Niacin (as niacinamide) 75 mg
Vitamin B6 (as pyridoxine hydrochloride) 50 mg
Folic Acid (folate) 200 mcg
Vitamin B12 (as cyanocobalamin) 75 mcg
Biotin 200 mcg
Pantothenic Acid (as d-calcium pantothenate) 75 mg
Choline (as choline bitartrate) 50 mg
Inositol 50 mg
Yet most healthy adults should consume approximately 2.4 mcg of vitamin B-12, 1.3 to 1.7 mg of vitamin B-6, 400 mcg of folate, 14 to 16 mg of niacin, 1.1 to 1.2 mg thiamin, 5 mg of pantothenic acid, 1.1 to 1.3 of riboflavin and 25 to 30 mcg of biotin. Most healthy adults should keep their intake as close to these amounts as possible.
Isn't the above dosage waaay too high for some of the B Vitimins within it?
For example; 1.1 to 1.2 thiamin is the RDA yet there is 50mgs in each teaspoon. Or 5 mg of pantothenic acid is the RDA yet each teaspoon contains 75 mg and so forth. I am confused.
