Have you been feeling weak, depressed, or having trouble keeping your balance? Did you know that this could be connected to a vitamin B12 deficiency?
Vitamin B’s are found in foods that primarily come from animal sources such as fish, beef, dairy products, and eggs. B vitamins are required for the release of energy from food, for the healthy function of the nervous system, and for the production of hormones. B vitamins support the circulatory and immune systems and help maintain the health of skin, hair, and eyes. Vitamin B’s are also important for the brain and nerves throughout the body and for the production of red blood cells. Without proper absorption of Vitamin B’s, the deficiency can cause permanent nerve damage.
What increases my risk for a vitamin B deficiency?
If you are not a vegan, age may also have something to do with a Vitamin B deficiency. If you are elderly or you have certain medical conditions including pernicious anemia, diabetes, Celiac disease, and Crohn disease, you may also have trouble absorbing vitamin B12.
Why take our B Complex supplement?
B-Complex is used to treat vitamin B12 deficiency and is comprised of eight B vitamins, along with essential support nutrients. The formulation helps support the brain, nervous system and cardiovascular system and may be prescribed to improve memory, mental health, and energy levels. B–Complex also helps the body metabolize and detoxify the metabolites of hormones (essential for hormone optimization) and cleanse environmental toxins from the body.
What Vitamins are in B–Complex?
Vitamin B-2 Riboflavin
Vitamin B2 helps break down proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. It plays a vital role in maintaining the body’s energy supply.
Vitamin B-3 Niacin
It helps the body to use proteins and fats, and it keeps the skin, hair, and nervous system healthy.
Vitamin B-5 Pantothenic Acid
Pantothenic acid helps the body break down fats, carbohydrates, and proteins so that our bodies can use them for energy and rebuilding tissues, muscles, and organs.
Vitamin B-6 Pyridoxine
A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that people with high concentrations of vitamin B-6 tested better on two measures of memory function. Vitamin B6 is also needed for transmission to neurons in the brain.
