Vitamin B Benefits
Vitamin B is important for the efficiency of our body. Many of our bodily functions depend on this substance and can easily get out of balance if we don't consume enough of it. We can prevent this by eating healthy food, and in the case of deficiency through supplements, because this substance belongs to the group of water soluble vitamins which our body is not able to store. This vital nutrient is responsible for our nervous and cardiovascular system to function well, the production of red blood cells, but also for a good metabolism.
The risk of heart deseases and arteriosclerosis as well as disturbances of memory can be decreased by a regular supply of vitamin b. And this is extremly important for seniors because their organism simply needs more of this valuable substance than younger people. But I must honestly say, young as I am, in times of stress, when I search for my favorite chocolate bar, realising someone already took a huge bite, I could use an extra portion of this b booster shot :-)) Yes, it is very helpful in times of stress too because of its calming and strengthening effect it has on our nervous system.
But There Are Even More Benefits !
Because vitamin b promotes the metabolic processes in our body we also benefit from beautiful skin and hair. It regenerates dry, sensitive and chapped skin and brings back good results for acne skin too. Products containing this substance are very suitable for this skin type because of its moisturising effect. Which means...less wrinkles :-) The description is often declared as niacin and pantothenic acid in cosmetics. In some cases of hair loss a cure with biotin (B7) has been helpful to strenghten hair growth again. And for people who are overtired or maybe just recovering from illness, it will help to regain their energy.
Yeap...vitamin b and you're ready to jump in the sea :-)
Actually there are 8 B group vitamins like, B1 (Thiamine) B2 (Riboflavin) B3 (Niacin) B5 (Pantothenic acid) B6 (Pyridoxine) B7 (Biotin) B9 (Folic acid) and B12 (cyanocobalamin). They form a strong basis for a healthy life and are essential for the sustaining of many body functions.
