Vitamins: The Benefits of B's

Vitamins: The Benefits of B's | Mr Vitamins

Stress destroys your health

In this day and age, we are all prone to feeling continuous stress. We worry about our jobs and children; we fret over finances and relationships. Eventually, stress can wreck havoc on your health, causing illnesses, such as heart problems, excess weight, as well as depression and anxiety. B Vitamins can help with stress by working with brain chemistry and balancing neurotransmitters, thus assisting you to achieve balance and feel less stress.

Take a B Complex to prevent B imbalances

Taking individual B Vitamins can be very beneficial, but it is also important to take a good high dose B Vitamin Complex supplement to help prevent imbalances among these vitamins.  B Vitamins have been shown to be deficient in patients suffering from a range of mental illnesses including:
  • depression
  • anxiety
  • agoraphobia
  • claustrophobia

Inositol - as effective as Anti-depressants

In a study of people with panic disorder, OCD and depression the B vitamin inositol taken in high doses was found to be as effective and had fewer side effects than an anti-anxiety medication. This reflects clinical experience, where Inositol has been found to be very helpful for  people who have obsessive and constantly circulating thoughts.

B is for Blood sugar

  • Vitamin B1 is pertinent to blood sugar control which has a major knock-on effect on anxiety.
  • Vitamin B3 is involved in many enzymatic processes and plays a key role in serotonin synthesis, which means that in insufficient doses you might experience low mood or sleep disturbances
  • Vitamin B5 is very important for the adrenals and therefore helps with modulating stress

B is for ‘The Blues’

Folic acid and Vitamin B12 are important for depression which is strongly linked to anxiety. They also support heart health, which is important if you suffer from anxiety or panic attacks, which stress your heart. B Vitamins are not stored by your body so a regular supply is needed, either from the food you eat, or by taking a good quality supplement.
