What do B-Vitamins Actually Do?
: B vitamins help the body metabolize carbohydrates, fats, and proteins
into energy. In fact, in recent years, studies have suggested that patients
with chronic fatigue syndrome felt more energetic when provided with
supplementation of B vitamins.
B Vitamins are necessary for maintaining a healthy nervous system, skin,
eyes, hair, liver, and mouth.
Recent research indicates that B vitamins may help reduce age-related brain
damage like Alzheimer’s and dementia.
Disorders that arise from stress are often due to nutritional deficiencies,
especially deficiencies of B Complex (B-1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 12). With multiple
sources and meaningful doses of B vitamins.
"It looks like getting B vitamins -- from foods or supplements -- is nearly
as important as stopping smoking, lowering high cholesterol, and
controlling blood pressure when it comes to preventing a heart attack,"
says epidemiologist Eric Rimm of Harvard University.
In 1998 Rimm and his colleagues reported that women who got ample folic
acid and B-6 suffered heart attacks only about half as often as women who
took in meager amounts. The finding may help clear up an enduring mystery:
Half of all heart attack victims have cholesterol levels that are in the
desirable range. More and more experts are coming to accept the notion that
in some cases the culprit is an amino acid called homocysteine.
Homocysteine is thought to scar blood vessels, setting the stage for
artery-narrowing deposits. Unfortunately, your body produces this substance
when it digests animal protein. How might B vitamins help? They may work to
dispose of homocysteine before it wreaks havoc. All three of these vitamins
are found in a variety of ordinary foods. And synthetic folic acid is
sprayed onto enriched grains. Still, you can't count on getting the
recommended 400 micrograms of folic acid from food unless you eat a bowl of
fully fortified breakfast cereal every day.
As for B-6, studies have shown that up to half of women over age 50 don't
get enough. And up to a third of those over 50 have trouble-absorbing B-12
We've all heard it-get plenty of rest, exercise regularly, eat healthily,
and you'll have the energy to burn. True? False! In fact, many adults who
live healthy lifestyles are still frustrated by the lack of energy they
feel. That's because many adults are missing an important but simple
solution to having more energy-vitamin B-12.
The bottom line on B-Complex Supplements:
You need more of these vitamins than your meals can possibly supply. The
easiest way to get them in the proper balance is by taking a B-Complex
supplement and a quality multivitamin.

B Vitamins are so important they are one of the few nutrients the federal
government mandates to be added to foods.
The problem: You cannot rely on food for enough B vitamin. Intense heat,
slow cooking, light, baking soda and baking powder all destroy B vitamins.
When was the last time you went through a day without sugar, processed
foods, alcohol, caffeine or some stress? Every one of these depletes your
body's supply of vitamin B.
Every time you eat carbs B-1, B-2, B-3, B-5, B-6, phosphorus, and magnesium
are required to metabolize them. The last 4 are not replaced by
"enrichment" of foods so the body must use its own reserves.
Pantothenic Acid, (B5) gets taken from the nerve and muscle tissue;
Pyridoxine (B6) is taken from the Brain; Phosphorous and Magnesium are
taken from the heart and bones.
Deplete the body of these compounds and you weaken the nerve and muscle
tissue which could result in nerve problems and loss of muscle tone. The
loss of brain tissue will affect your memory. Phosphorous depletion will
weaken muscle and rhythm function, affecting the rhythm of the heart.
Processed food removes these B vitamins and enrichment does not add them in
a way that our body can use.
Maybe it’s time to start doing something to help your body. Do something to
boost your health.
It is like insurance for your body. Give your body what it needs. Take a
small step and make the choice to eat natural foods when possible and
supplement your diet with a good B complex vitamin.
