Vitamin B: Are You Getting Enough?

Vitamin B is found in whole unprocessed foods. It works to boost your metabolism and your immune system, strengthens your nervous system, helps promote healthy skin and muscles, strengthens your finger nails and hair.

The Different B vitamins and What They Do:

B1 or Thiamine-Serves as a catalyst in carbohydrate metabolism and helps synthesize nerve-regulating substances.
B2 or Riboflavin-Helps metabolize fats, carbohydrates, and respiratory proteins.
B3 or Niacin-Helps release energy from nutrients. It can reduce cholesterol and prevent and treat arteriosclerosis, among other benefits.
B5 or Pantothenic Acid-Has a role in the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins.
B6- Helps the body to absorb and metabolize amino acids, to use fats, and to form red blood cells.
B7 or Biotin-Helps form fatty acids and assists in the release of energy from carbohydrates.
B9 or Folic Acid-It helps treat anemia.
B12-Assists the function of the nervous system and the formation of red blood cells.

Where Can You Find Vitamin B?

Eggs, beef, dark turkey meat, liver, lamb, spinach, whole grains, legumes,and nuts. Eating a diet full of fresh, whole, unprocessed foods is the best place to get your vitamin B, but when that is not enough, I recommend supplementation.


The Supplements I Recommend:

My favorite B complex supplement at the moment is the liquid B vitamin I take made by Solgar. It is sublingual liquid vitamin i.e. you take it under your tongue and allow it to absorb through your salivary glands.
