5.1 Pharmacodynamic properties

Vitamin B Complex.

Thiamine Hydrochloride (Vit B1): A water soluble vitamin. It is a co-enzyme for carbohydrate metabolism.

Riboflavine Sodium Phosphate (Vit B2): A water soluble vitamin converted in the body to flavine mononucleotide and flavine adenine dinucleotide and then involved as co-enzymes in oxidative and reductive metabolic processes.

Nicotinamide: A water soluble vitamin considered part of the Vitamin B group. Converted to Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide and Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide Phosphate in the body, both of which are co-enzymes important in electron transfer in respiratory reactions.

Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vit B6): A water soluble vitamin. Involved in carbohydrate and fat metabolism, but also important in haemoglobin formation.

Pantothenol: The alcoholic analogue of D-pantothenic acid traditionally considered a B vitamin. It is a component of co-enzyme A, which is important in the metabolism of fat, carbohydrate and protein.
