The Benefits of "B" Vitamins

Dr. Jenkins: Posted on Wednesday, May 09, 2018 2:15 PM

B vitamins consist of 8 individual water-soluble vitamins: B1,B2,B3,B5,B6,B12, Folate, Biotin.

There are several important things you need to know before you start taking them.


1. B vitamins are primarily used by our nerve cells, although you can find them everywhere in the body.

2. B vitamins help break down carbohydrates for energy;  break down fat and proteins for our nervous system function, as well as  help provide muscle tone.

3. We do not store B vitamins therefore they are excreted through the urine.

4. Beware of the "inactive " form of B vitamins. Best sources are "methylation" B vitamins.


NOTE: If you are vegan or vegetarian you will lack B vitamins. B vitamins are found only in animal protein.


People who will benefits the most are those who are...

*Stressed

*Drink caffeine

*Take medication

*Consume too much cooked food

*Eat a highly processed diet

*Suffer from fatigue/mood swings

*Experiencing pain
