The Benefits of B Complex
The B vitamins, grouped together are often called B-complex. B-complex is comprised of 8 different vitamins, thiamine (or B1), riboflavin (or B2), niacin (or B3), pyridoxine (or B6), (or B9), cyanocobalamin (or B12), and . These vitamins are essencial for the following:
* The breakdown of carbohydrates into glucose (this provides energy for the body)
* The breakdown of fats and proteins (which aids the normal functioning of the nervous system)
* Muscle tone in the stomach and intestinal tract
Another great way to get your B-complex vitamins is through the foods you eat. Some of the foods you eat that contain the B-complex vitamins are:
* brewer's yeast
* chili peppers
Yet another way to get your B-complex vitamins through supplements that you can find at a nutrition store. Make sure to read the bottle for the correct dosage. As is true with any supplement or vitamin, too much B-complex is not good for your system. Be sure to moderate your intake appropriately.
A healthy dose of B-complex can help people who suffer from immune and nervous system conditions, depression, stress, and metabolic problems. It also promotes healthy cell growth, especially red blood cells. This is helpful for people who may suffer from anemia.
All in all, B-complex offers something to everyone, even if it is only to promote healthy skin and muscle tone. Who doesn't want that!
The easiest way to purchase your vitamins is to have them delivered to your front door!
