Better B Complex
B Vitamins Are Extremely Important to Having a Well Functioning Body and Brain
B vitamins are water-soluble, which means your body does not store them. For this reason, your diet must supply them each day. B vitamins are vital for maintaining good health.
Better B Complex is superior to other B complex because it has:
- Vitamin B2 as active riboflavin-5’-phosphate, instead of inactive riboflavin. Vitamin B2 is a metabolizing nutrient and participates in electron transport, and fatty acid metabolism.
- Vitamin B6 as active pyridoxal-5’-phosphate, instead of inactive pyridoxine hydrochloride. B6 supports the production of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter, and supports cardiovascular health.
- Folate as active 5-methyltetrahydrofolate, instead of inactive folic acid. Folate is important for healthy DNA and for the synthesis of nucleic acids and neurotransmitters.
- Vitamin B12 as methylcobalamin, instead of inactive cyanocobalamin. B12 supports DNA replication and healthy nerve cell function.
- Vitamin B co-factors including choline, inositol, intrinsic factor, PABA and pantothenic acid.
What are the Benefits of B Complex Vitamins
- B vitamins are a group of nutrients that play many important roles in your body. Factors like age, pregnancy, dietary choices, medical conditions, genetics, medication and alcohol use increase the body’s demand for B vitamins.
- B vitamins impact metabolism by converting nutrients into energy your body can use, they act as antioxidants, are involved in hormone and cholesterol production, cell growth and division, and do so much more. B vitamins have also been shown to impact mood, including anxiety and depression. If you’re low in certain B vitamins, you may feel extreme fatigue, or have cognitive difficulties, including foggy thinking and short term memory loss.
Each B complex vitamin works a little differently, and impacts different aspects of health. Let’s talk about each one, to better understand the range of health issues impacted by B complex vitamins
Vitamin B-1 (Thiamine)
Thiamine was the first B vitamin that scientists discovered. It helps in changing carbohydrates into energy in the body, and also plays a role in muscle contraction and nervous system functioning.
Vitamin B-2 (Riboflavin)
Vitamin B-2 is important for growth and production of red blood cells, as well as helping to release energy from proteins in the body. Riboflavin also acts as an antioxidant.
Vitamin B-3 (Niacin)
Niacin helps with functioning of your digestive system, skin and nerves and is important in converting food to energy. A niacin deficiency has been linked to cardiovascular disease, pellagra, which includes digestive issues, inflammation of skin, and mental impairments.
B5 (Pantothenic acid)
Pantothenic Acid helps the body metabolize food and is important to the growth process and in making fatty acids. B5 is also connected to the production of hormones and cholesterol. B5 helps speed wound healing and helps prevent joint stiffness and pain.
Vitamin B6 helps create antibodies, maintain nerve functioning, metabolize amino acids, break down proteins, keep blood sugar within normal ranges, and helps in red blood cell production and in creating neurotransmitters.
Biotin is an essential component of a numerous enzymes that enable several metabolic pathways in the human body, including metabolism of fats and carbohydrates. It's also essential to protein synthesis of many amino acids. Biotin is essential for healthy nerve function, hair, skin, and nails.
Folate is one of the most talked about B vitamins. It’s required for cell growth and amino acid metabolism, blood cell formation (both red and white), and cell division. Folate is particularly important before and during pregnancy, to help prevent birth defects in the baby’s brain or spine. A folate deficiency can cause fatigue, irritability, poor growth and anemia. In severe cases, it can also contribute to low white blood cells and platelets
The older we get, the more difficult it is for our bodies to absorb vitamin B12 from food. Digestive disorders can also be a factor in being unable to absorb enough of this vitamin. This vitamin is vital to neurological functioning, as well as playing an important role in metabolizing proteins and forming red blood cells. B12 deficiency can cause anemia and pernicious anemia, balance issues, numbness in arms and legs, and general weakness.
