In todays world, who couldn't use a HAPPY Vitamin?
The Benefits of B Vitamins are amazing and truly can make you "Happy".
Not sure if you should be supplementing your diet with a good b-complex vitamin. Check the list to see if you have any of these symptoms:
One of the biggest complaints I hear if I ask someone whats wrong is "I'm tired", "I have no energy", or "I'm depressed". Before I started taking vitamins I had some of those same complaints.
Your body is telling you its missing something. It's missing an important ingredient. You need supplements like B vitamins to keep you energetic and healthy.
If you give your body what it needs, it will stay healthy and even heal itself.
Your body is an amazing machine. Give it a good supply of raw materials and do some daily upkeep and you too can live a Healthy Life.
B-Vitamins are one of those very important raw materials.
B vitamins are called the “happy” vitamins. They bring balance to the many systems running your body.
The big question is not "Should I take a B complex supplement?", but "Which B complex do I take?"
RULE 1: Look at whats in it.
There are eight known B vitamins. Good products have all eight in a balanced form. The eight (8) are:
All 8 are essential for human metabolism, growth, reproduction, general health, appetite, the normal functioning of the digestive tract, nervous stability and blood cell formation.
B vitamins are competitive in the body. B vitamins must be taken together in a balanced, complex form in order for your body to use them correctly. Taking 1 or 2 of the B supplements alone can throw off your metabolism.
Some B-complex components are expensive to produce. Others are cheap. Guess which ones are left out of discount vitamins. Trust me, not all vitamins are the same. It is worth your time and money to compare vitamins.
Look at the back of the vitamin bottle. Do you see 6000% of the recommended daily allowance of one B, (the less expensive one) and 20% of the expensive one? Ask yourself if the company making that product is looking out for you health or it bottom line.
B vitamins are like a sports team. There is no "I in TEAM". Everyone must work together to achieve a winning combination. I can still here my coach, "You are only as strong as your weakest link." "Win one for the Gipper" --- but wait –-- I think I am getting off track....
Vitamin companies are not required to do research on their products. Most companies don't do any. It costs a lot of money.
The old saying of "you get what you pay for" really does hold true for vitamins and supplements. It is worth the effort to find a company that does the clinical research and can back up their nutritional claims.
What happens to a vitamin tablet once you swallow it?
Does it pass through your body unused? All you are doing is making expensive urine or (excuse my language) "pissing money down the drain".
OR, Does it get into your body where it can do the job it is meant to do?
The right blend of all eight B complex vitamins must be included for the tablet to be absorbed correctly.
For example, Folic acid is very difficult to get into the blood stream. A large part of a pill made of just folic acid would pass right through you and never get absorbed. But if the pill was made in a correctly balanced form, folic acid could reduce hospital charges for women of child bearing age up to an estimated 20 billion dollars per year.
B Vitamins are so important they are one of the few nutrients the federal government mandates to be added to foods.
The problem: You cannot rely on food for enough B vitamin. Intense heat, slow cooking, light, baking soda and baking powder all destroy B vitamins.
Everytime you eat carbs B-1, B-2, B-3, B-5, B-6, phosphorous, and magnesium are required to metabolize them. The last 4 are not replaced by "enrichment" of foods so the body must use its own reserves.
Pantothenic Acid, (B5) gets taken from the nerve and muscle tissue; Pyridoxine (B6) is taken from the Brain; Phosphorous and Magnesium are taken from the heart and bones.
Deplete the body of these compounds and you weaken the nerve and muscle tissue which could result in nerve problems and loss of muscle tone. The loss of brain tissue will affect your memory. Phosphorous depletion will weaken muscle and rhythm function, affecting the rhythm of the heart.
Processed food removes these B vitamins and enrichment does not add them in a way that our body can use.
I am not trying to scare you but maybe its time to start doing something to help your body. Do something to boost your health.
It is like insurance for your body. Give your body what it needs. Take a small step and make the choice to eat natural foods when possible and supplement your diet with a good B complex vitamin.
Here's to your health!
