The Stress Vitamins
This week I am discussing the essential nutrients needed for a healthy and balanced life. Today we are talking about the Vitamin B Complex.
There are many different types of Vitamin B: Thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, niacinamide, pantothenate, pyridoxal 5 phosphate, cobalomine, methylcobalamin, biotin and folate.
Together these Vitamin B’s are very important for carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism, for adrenal function, healthy hair, skin and eyes, and Essential for ATP-energy production by the mitochondria and serotonin and dopamine production.
Vitamin B’s are often called the “Stress Vitamins” because they help us deal with stress, help optimize our digestion, cognitive function and sleep. Often anxiety and depression can be relieved by taking a healthy dose of Vitamin B nutrients.
Foods high in Vitamin B’s include: Meats, eggs, nuts & seeds, brown & black rice, legumes, black strap molasses and green vegetables.
I support my body with a B Complex formula where the individual B’s are in their coenzymated form- what that means is that there is one less step for the body to process in order to optimally be used by our cells. I take them in the morning with my breakfast to help me with my energy, mental focus and to help with stress throughout the day!
