B Vitamins

B-vitamins are essential for health and interdependent co-factors that work together to achieve a wide variety of metabolic functions and maintain the nervous system including:

  • increasing energy
  • supporting brain function
  • aiding cellular regeneration
  • protecting from free radical damage
  • helping heart function
  • improving immune system
  • aids in digestion and breakdown of fats and carbs and sugars
  • supports lean muscle function
  • stabilizes appetite
  • regulates blood pressure
  • helps skin elasticity and tone
  • and much more.

B-vitamins are water soluble – any excess cannot be stored by the body. It is therefore ideal to take B vitamins periodically throughout the day.

We discus each B vitamin individually below.

B1 (VITAMIN B-1) (Thiamin)
Thiamin plays a key role in the body’s metabolic cycle for generating energy; aids in the digestion of carbohydrates; essential for the normal functioning of the nervous system, muscles & heart; stabilizes the appetite; promotes growth & good muscle tone.

Niacin improves circulation and reduces the cholesterol level in the blood; maintains the nervous system; helps metabolize protein, sugar & fat; reduces high-blood pressure; increases energy through proper utilization of food; helps maintain healthy skin, tongue & digestive system.

B5 (Pantothenic Acid)
B5 is an anti-stress vitamin. It promotes adrenal production, antibody formation, vitamin utilization, aids energy production and is concentrated in organ tissues. B5 is also involved in neurotransmitter production and may help alleviate depression and anxiety. [MORE]

B-6 (Pyridoxine)
B6 is necessary for the synthesis & breakdown of amino acids, the building blocks of protein; aids in fat and carbohydrate metabolism; aids in the formation of antibodies; maintains the central nervous system; aids in the removal of excess fluid of premenstrual women; promotes healthy skin; reduces muscle spasms, leg cramps, hand numbness, nausea & stiffness of hands; helps maintain a proper balance of sodium & phosphorous in the body.

Folic acid reduces the risk for heart disease by reducing high homocystein levels in the blood.

B-12 (Cobalamin, Cyanocobalamin, Hydroxylcobalamin, ion exchange resin)
