Stressed? Anxious? You May Need More Vitamin B.

Vitamin b

Hello loves, ā¤

Stress is a big thing that we all encounter, some more then others šŸ˜¦ It’s unfortunate but we need to learn to deal with bc if we let it take its toll, this is where we fall into ruts & feel down etc.

I have purchased Mega B from Natures Way & I am so excited to try this bc it helps out the body so much.

See below the benefits of the different types of Vitamins B ā¤

The research into the importance of B Vitamins for dealing with stress is well documented. One study coming out of Swinburne University in Melbourne found that participants taking a Vitamin B-Complex supplement reported a 20% reduction in work related stress. This is in contrast to the control group in the study, who were given a placebo and reportedĀ no significant change in stress levels.

Vitamin B is not one vitamin, rather it is a group of vitamins that can help support our bodies during stressful times.

Letā€™s look at each of the B Vitamins that can help support your body during stressful times, and why each is important.

VITAMIN B1: THIAMINE

Foods rich in thiamine include fish, nuts, seeds and green peas.

Thiamine is neededĀ for:

  • maintaining nerve health.
  • mood regulation
  • energy production
  • may play a role in memory and concentration.

VITAMIN B3: NIACIN

Foods rich in niacin include beetroot, beef liver & kidney, fish and seeds.

Niacin is neededĀ for:

  • supporting theĀ digestive system.
  • mood regulation (B3 deficiency can lead to depression, irritability, stress and mood disturbances).
  • Energy production.
  • Control of blood sugar and nerve health.

VITAMIN B6: PYRIDOXINE

Food sources of pyridoxine include bananas, beef / turkey liver, tuna and chick peas.

Pyridoxine is neededĀ for:

  • helping manufacture neurotransmitters, such as serotonin, which aids in the bodyā€™s ability to cope with depression, stress and anxiety.
  • immune system support.

VITAMIN B9: FOLATE / FOLIC ACID

Food sources of folate include broccoli, spinach and dried legumes (chick peas, lentils, beans).

Folate is neededĀ for:

  • energy production.

VITAMIN B12: CYANOCOBALAMIN

Food sources include fish, meat (especially liver), poultry and dairy.

Vitamin B12 is needed for:

  • general brain support.
  • supports melatonin and serotonin production (both of which are critical Ā to mood, relaxation and sleep.

CONSIDER A VITAMIN B COMPLEX SUPPLEMENT

The B group vitamins are not stored b y the body like many other vitamins and minerals. Whatever B Vitamins you eat that are not absorbed by your body are excreted within hours. As such, aĀ Vitamin B Complex like Natureā€™s Way Mega-BĀ taken daily might be of benefit, particularly during times of stress when we tend to neglect our body and diet. Taking a Vitamin B Complex supplement is a good way to ā€˜top upā€™ your daily vitamin B levels and, research suggests, may be an effective way to reduce stress levels (or at least better equip our bodies with the right nutrition to deal with stress).

I will start taking note of how I feel etc & I’ll re-group in about 4 weeks & share how I am feeling & if my stress levels have improved ā¤

Wherever you are in the world, have a lovely day ā¤
