B vitamins

Deficiencies can cause:  irritability, depression, nausea, peripheral neuropathy, constipation, loss of appetite, mental confusion, loss of fine motor control, and muscle weakness.

Causes of deficiency

Alcoholism, Restricted diets, malabsorption syndrome, malnutrition.

It is especially indicated for athletes

pre-exercise for an energy boost or post-exercise for its anti-inflammatory effects — and women with PMS symptoms, as it helps alleviate cramps and menstrual migraines quickly. Some research suggests that B6 may lower the risk of colon cancer.

Together with vitamin B12 and Folic Acid, it may help reduce homocysteine levels (elevated levels can lead to cardiovascular disease and is a risk factor for Alzheimer’s Disease). Deficiency can be caused by excessive alcohol intake and use of birth control pills. High dose vitamin B6 should be combined with synergistic B vitamins to ensure adequate levels of all the B vitamins.

B12 METHYLCOBALAMIN / HYDROXOCOBALAMIN

important role in red blood cell formation, brain and nervous system function, and immune system regulation. It’s known to help increase energy, boost metabolism, support weight loss, lower homocysteine levels (elevated levels can lead to cardiovascular disease and is linked to increased risk of Alzheimer’s Disease), enhance mood, support the immune system, provide mental clarity, promote deeper sleep, and improve stamina. It may benefit pernicious anemia, multiple sclerosis, diabetic nerve damage, alcoholic polyneuropathy, neurological disorders, peripheral neuropathy, shingles, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, headache, migraine, and hangover.

Vegans and Vegetarians, or those who don’t eat much red meat, people with inflammatory intestinal conditions, those who have had intestinal resection at the terminal ileum, and people who have used medications such as antibiotics, Metformin, H2 blockers (acid blockers), and PPIs (proton pump inhibitors) are the most likely to be deficient in vitamin B12.

Deficiency include:  megaloblastic anemia, peripheral neuropathy, irritability, dementia, depression, psychosis, and increased risk of myocardial infarction and stroke.

  • Important in red blood cell formation, brain and nervous system function
  • Helps regulate immune system
  • Increases energy and boosts metabolism
  • enhance mood and provide mental clarity
  • promotes deeper sleep, and improves stamina
  • It may benefit pernicious anemia, multiple sclerosis, diabetic nerve damage, alcoholic polyneuropathy, neurological disorders, peripheral neuropathy, shingles, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, headache, migraine, and hangover
  • medications such as antibiotics, Metformin, H2 blockers (acid blockers), and PPIs (proton pump inhibitors) can cause B12 deficiencies
Vitamin B Complex
  • Helps to convert carbohydrates into energy
  • Helps maintain nervous system function
  • Helps to build healthy hair, nails and skin
  • Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) – Aids in cellular energy production and nerve conductivity. Decreases irritability, nausea, muscle weakness, constipation and peripheral neuropathy
  • Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin)- Aids in cellular energy production and oxygenation. Helps relieve migraines
  • Vitamin B3 (Niacin)- Decreases muscle fatigue, indigestion, depression, insomnia and headaches
  • Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid)- It supports adrenal function, stimulates wound healing, and may help relieve symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, lower cholesterol, and reduce platelet aggregation.
  • Vitamin B6 (Pyroxidine)- “anti-stress vitamin” is important for a healthy immune system, nervous system, and cardiovascular system.
  • It aids in metabolism, heme (blood) synthesis, and neurotransmitter production.
  • Helps symptoms associated with ADHD
  • aid in weight loss, stabilizes blood sugar, promote healthy skin
  • mood stabilizer (as it is needed in the formation of serotonin, dopamine and other neurotransmitters)
  • prevents kidney stone formation, atherosclerosis and fatigue
  • alleviates nausea due to pregnancy and menopause, and reduce symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, as well as PMS including breast tenderness, cramps, anxiety and depression.
