normal, healthy levels (natural flora levels may be affected by fungus
or antibiotics). Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium bifidum
form part of the body’s normal micro-flora and encourage a healthy
intestinal environment, promoting proper digestion and immune
function and supporting the body’s natural defences against infection,
inflammation, and disease.
The addition of FOS (fructooligosaccharides - short chain fatty acids),
which act as fuel for the growth and maintenance of beneficial gut
flora, makes this formula especially useful in cases of dysbiosis due to
pathogentic bacteria, fungal overgrowth, or following antibiotic use.
FOS have been shown to help improve calcium and magnesium
absorption, balance gut Ph, improve lipid profiles, and strengthen the
The B group vitamins work synergistically as co-factors for thousands
of enzymatic reactions in the body. Best known for their crucial role in

The health and proper functioning of the cardiovascular system
relies on B vitamins as they are involved in nerve conduction,
neurotransmitter synthesis, and proper muscle function, including that

Adequate B vitamins are required by the endocrine system, with B6
being particularly beneficial for balancing hormones in women with
symptoms of premenstrual syndrome. B vitamins also support the health
of the skin, hair, and nails.
NutriVital B complex contains B6 in the most easily
assimilated form of pyridoxal-5-phosphate (P5P). It also
includes choline and inositol which work in synergy
with B vitamins.
