Stress, aging, active lifestyles, poor digestion, alcohol consumption, PMS, menopause, and cardiovascular disease are just some of the factors that increase the body’s need for B vitamins. Inadequate intake of some B vitamins is not uncommon and deficiencies can be associated with fatigue, insomnia, depression, and migraines. In the diet, B vitamins are found in yeast, green leafy vegetables and lentils. The best sources of B12 are meat and seafood, making supplements particularly advisable for vegetarians. This formula is in capsule form, easy to swallow and it is yeast free!
Although each B vitamin has a unique role, they work together as coenzymes to metabolize proteins, carbohydrates and fats and to provide the body with energy. B vitamins help synthesize brain chemicals which support mood and nerves. They are essential for healthy skin, hair, eyes, mouth and liver and as they are water-soluble, B vitamins are not stored in the body and must be replenished daily.
