Vitamin B Complex

B1 – Thiamine:

 

  • Essential to form adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which every cell of the body uses for energy

  • Referred to as an "anti-stress" vitamin because it may strengthen the immune system and improve the body's ability to withstand stressful conditions

     

B2 – Riboflavin:

 

  • Promotes Iron metabolism

  • Offers antioxidant protection

  • Promotes energy production

 

B3 – Niacin: Having enough in the body is important for general good health. Several studies have shown that it can boost levels of good HDL cholesterol and lower triglycerides as well or better than some prescription drugs. Niacin also modestly lowers bad LDL cholesterol.

 

B5PanthenolB5 (Dexpanthenol, Pantothenic Acid)- a B-complex vitamin which performs many important roles for health especially in the oxidation of fats and carbohydrates

  • helps body to convert foods to produce energy

  • synthesizes carbohydrates, fats and proteins

  • synthesizes with a small sulphur containing molecule to create coenzyme A. Coenzyme A is required for variety of chemical reactions. It is important for the production of red blood cells and also for the production of healthy fats in the cells. It promotes the health of adrenal glands thus improves body’s response to stress.

  • good for the skin and hair; is required for the treatment of alopecia (hair-loss)

  • used for the treatment of acne and can heal the wounds faster

B6Pyridoxine

  • assists enzyme reactions in protein and red blood cell metabolism, according to the Office of Dietary Supplements

  • In people consuming low-calorie diets, vitamin B6 aids in blood glucose regulation by helping convert stored nutrients into energy the body can use, helping increasing metabolism

  • Increases thyroid activity, which increases resting metabolic rate

  • In amounts near or slightly above the recommended daily allowance, vitamin B-6 can increase energy, support immune system function and improve memory

 

 

B12Cobalamin

Vitamin B-12 (Cobalamin’s) increases our oxygen-carrying capacity, otherwise known as hemoglobin, a red blood cell component. Is required for the proper function and development of the brain, nerves, blood cells, and many other parts of the body. B12 is also used in but not limited to:
