B Well with B Vitamins…Research Shows

B VitaminsB Vitamins are water soluble vitamins (can’t be stored in the body) each having valuable health promoting properties such as energy production, stress relief, heart health support and more. The B complex is the combination of the 8 B vitamins often found together in foods and in supplement forms and are responsible for turning food into fuel. Here’s a list to familiarize you with the various names of the B vitamins:

  • Vitamin B1 (thiamine)
  • Vitamin B2 (riboflavin)
  • Vitamin B3 (niacin or nicotinicacid)
  • Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid)
  • Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine, pyridoxal, pyridoxamine)
  • Vitamin B7 (biotin)
  • Vitamin B9 (folic acid)
  • Vitamin B12 (cobalamin)

“The B-complex vitamins are essential to mental and emotional well-being,” stated Research Director of the WA Centre for Health and Ageing, Professor Osvaldo Almeida. Research had found that sustained B vitamin use together with anti-depressant treatment for more than a year had significantly improved treatment outcomes in people with major depression.

Current research suggests that the three B’s—folic acid, B6 and B12—can control and reduce homocysteine levels benefiting heart health.

They are not made with animal byproducts as opposed to gelatin capsules which are from animal derived sources. This allows them to be suitable for both vegetarian and vegan consumers and perhaps suitable as Kosher and Halal. Most importantly they are fast dissolving and easily digested.
