B vitamins are all coenzymes involved in the metabolism of important substances such as sugar, fat and protein, and are indispensable water-soluble vitamins for maintaining normal functions of the human body.

B vitamins are easily destroyed in an alkaline environment, and the human body cannot manufacture and synthesize by itself, and the B vitamins are water-soluble, and the extra B vitamins are difficult to store in the aqueous environment of the human body, so they should be replenished every day.


The efficacy of various B vitamins


1. Vitamin B1, also known as Thiamine


  • It constitutes a coenzyme and maintains the normal metabolism of the human body.
  • Vitamin B1 can promote gastrointestinal motility and treat indigestion.
  • Known as a spiritual vitamin, it has a good regulatory effect on nervous tissue and mental state.
  • (Lack of can cause such as: beriberi, neuritis, indigestion, etc.)


2. Riboflavin


  • The constituent coenzyme participates in the metabolism of substances such as amino acids, fatty acids and carbohydrates.
  • An important substance that constitutes red blood cells. Vitamin B2 also plays an important role in the prevention and treatment of iron deficiency anemia.
  • Participate in normal cell growth and body metabolism. If B2 is lacking, it will not heal even if it is small. B2 can also help growth and development, making nails and hair firm.
  • (Lack of can cause such as: angular keratitis, dermatitis, glossitis, conjunctivitis, keratitis, seborrheic alopecia, etc.)


3. Niacin is also known as vitamin PP and vitamin B3


  • It constitutes a coenzyme and maintains the normal metabolism of the human body.
  • Protect the cardiovascular system. Promotes blood circulation, lowers blood pressure, lowers cholesterol and triglycerides. Large doses of niacin have a protective effect on recurrent non-fatal myocardial infarction.
  • (Lack of can cause such things as weight loss, burnout, weakness, memory loss, insomnia, dermatitis, diarrhea, etc.)


4. Pantothenic acid, also known as vitamin B5


  • An important coenzyme that contributes to the utilization of vitamins and the metabolic conversion of fats, sugars and proteins.
  • It helps the wound heal and maintains the normal function of the digestive tract. It can make antibodies against infectious diseases, prevent fatigue and alleviate the side effects of various antibiotics.
  • (Lack of can cause such as: low blood sugar, long-term duodenal ulcer, rough skin, etc.)


5. Vitamin B6, also known as pyridoxine


  • As a coenzyme, it can participate in the metabolism of amino acids, including the conversion of glutamate in the central nervous system, which is inseparable from VB6, and thus can be a nutrient center.
  • Participation in the metabolism of glycogen and fatty acids can promote the secretion of insulin and prevent diabetes.
  • Participate in the synthesis of leukocytes and hemoglobin, reduce the content of homocysteine ​​in plasma, homocysteine ​​is a high risk factor for cardiovascular disease.
  • (Lack of can cause such as: anemia, depression, insomnia, dermatitis, cleft lip and so on, etc.)


6. Cobaltamine


  • It is a substance necessary for normal body growth and red blood cell growth.
  • It can lower the level of homocysteine ​​in the blood.
  • (deficiency: such as megaloblastic anemia, hyperhomocysteinemia, cold hands and feet, abnormal limbs, etc.)


7. Folic acid, also known as vitamin M, vitamin B11


  • It is indispensable for the material basis of cell proliferation, tissue growth and body development, and can prevent fetal congenital neural tube defects.
  • Folic acid is also involved in the synthesis of hemoglobin to prevent anemia.
  • Folic acid also has the effect of lowering homocysteine.
  • (Lack of can cause such as: fetal neural tube defects, hyperhomocysteinemia, megaloblastic anemia, etc.)


Reasons for the lack of B vitamins

  • The vitamin B group of cereals is mainly found in the germ. Frequently eating refined rice and adding alkaline noodles will result in insufficient intake of vitamin B.
  •  Poor diet, lifestyle, such as drinking, smoking, drinking coffee can affect vitamin absorption or increase consumption, high-sugar, high-fat diet needs to consume B vitamins to metabolism.
  • Long-term consumption of Western medicine can reduce the absorption of vitamins. Vitamins are unstable under alkaline conditions and are easily destroyed.
  • Inappropriate cooking methods, such as excessive simmering, frying, frying, and simmering, can cause a large loss of vitamins.


Why is it better to take B vitamins than a single vitamin B?

B vitamins are a large family with synergistic effects. For example, vitamin B2 can activate vitamin B6 and participate in the process of synthesizing niacin with tryptophan.

Therefore, it is better to ingest all the vitamins of the B group at a time.


Which people need to supplement B vitamins?

  • People with heavy work and study tasks and often staying up late.
  • Frequent dysmenorrhea, temper, emotional pessimism and menopausal women.
  • For example, VB12 plant foods are basically not included, so people who are dieting and losing weight should be supplemented.
  • People with gastrointestinal disorders, indigestion, and people with frequent ulcers.
  • Long-term medication is needed, especially for those who take antibiotics for a long time.
  • Poor liver function, liver disease patients, etc.
