Complex Vitamins

B-Complex vitamins are coenzymes involved in energy production and are good at minimizing depression and anxiety. Vitamin B helps maintain the health of the nerves, skin, eyes, hair, liver, mouth and digestive system. Vitamin B also supports healthy muscle tone in the gastrointestinal tract as well as proper brain functioning. Some functions of B-Vitamins are as follows:

We will briefly discuss a few more important B-Vitamins. Those B-Vitamins we will discuss are Niacin (Vitamin B3), Vitamin B12 (Cyanocobalamin), Folic Acid, and Biotin.

Niacin (Vitamin B3) is needed for proper circulation and healthy skin. Niacin is very important in the metabolic system because it aids in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. Niacin also helps produce hydrochloric acid for the digestive system. Niacin lowers cholesterol and improves blood circulation. Some people who take Niacin get what is called a ‘flush’, meaning their skin turns temporarily red and blushed. There is also niacin that comes in no-flush to alleviate this occurrence.

Biotin aids in cell growth, fatty acid production and in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Biotin is important because it also aids the body in the utilization of all other B-Vitamins. Biotin is important in the re-growth of hair and skin. Some studies have shown that 100mg a day of Biotin may prevent hair loss for some men.

Folic Acid is needed for energy production and for the formation of red blood cells which strengthens the immune system. Folic acid is involved in the digestion of proteins. Folic acid is important during pregnancy because it helps regulate embryonic and fetal nerve cell formation. Because folic acid aids pregnancy most in its early stages, it is must be taken before pregnancy for optimal results.
