Why Do I need B vitamins? And do I need a B complex or does my body need just a few B vitamins? What do B vitamins do? Why are B vitamins so important?
If you have asked yourself these questions, then you may be interested in learning more about Bs and what they can really help you with.
When I started working in this field, I was so curious about ALL vitamins. It got a bit overwhelming though. I worked very long hours too. My boss gave me a B complex and said to take 1 2x day, so I did, and wow, I noticed a significant increase in energy and focus. What were in these yellow capsules I started taking? Why did this one capsule help me so much? Does everyone need them?
B vitamins can help with:
balance and coordination
numbness and tingling sensations
sores in the mouth or on the tongue
I know I want to be able to perform at my best, each and every day! I work hard, and I am sure you do too. Life is busy, stress happens, and B vitamins are so important for stress support. Pantothenic acid specifically helps explicitly with adrenal health. Choline and Inositol help fat reduction and brain focus! Folate deficiency can be linked to high homocysteine levels which can be dangerous. Homocysteine can lead to heart disease. Low Folate can also lead to mood swings, OCD and depression. B12 can help nerve pain which many people seem to get that are suffering from Diabetes and neurologic health conditions.
So, wouldn’t it be nice if there was ONE test that looks at ALL of your B vitamins, so you know for sure what YOU need to take? And what about all of the other important vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants? Those are part of our comprehensive vitamin and mineral blood test.
Our philosophy regarding vitamins is only to take what YOUR body needs and nothing else! If you are low in Bs, we will let you know.
Are energy and focus important to life? Absolutely! And B vitamins are important too!
