Mega B is a multivitamin supplement made by Protect Wellness.
It’s a formula that focuses on B vitamins, for reducing stress, improving energy, and boosting general health.
Protect Wellness is an Australian owned supplement company, which specialises in vitamins.
The B vitamin group contains a whole range of compounds with unique roles. These are largely specific to the processing of food, into energy and building blocks for growth.
B vitamins promote a healthy immune system, improve growth, boost energy levels, and elevate mood. They’re also commonly used to reduce stress, especially in the workplace (1).
The formula contains well above the recommended daily intake of the majority of these B vitamins, with the exception of biotin.
Vitamin C has powerful antioxidant and immune-boosting properties.
It can improve blood flow, mood, and protect healthy testosterone levels.
Studies show that it can also significantly reduce the likelihood of athletes catching a cold (2).
Choline, sometimes considered part of the B complex, is a vitamin which is strongly linked to mental performance (3).
The bitartrate form is effective for liver health, but may not be effective for cognition.
Who Takes It?
Those wishing to improve their B vitamin levels to improve energy, mood, and general health may benefit from using Mega B.

This is especially helpful for boosting energy and reducing occupational stress.

You can often find an equivalent dose of B vitamins in a more complete multivitamin, which may be a better option overall.
