What is B-Complex?
B-Complex is a combination of select water soluble B vitamins beneficial in promoting various systems in the body. Most B-Complex supplements consist of vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9 and B12 in a concentrated form, designed to maximize results. B-Complex vitamins are available in multiple forms including oral, dermal and intravenously.
Benefits of B-Complex
Research shows B vitamins play an essential role in the body’s function and development. B-Complex has shown beneficial in promoting good eyesight, proper nerve function, cardiovascular health, cell health, growth of red blood cells, good digestion, hormones and cholesterol production, muscle tone, energy levels, and healthy brain function.
Some research points to vitamins B6, B9 and B12 being instrumental in decreasing the frequency of migraines with aura. Vitamin B12 has also been found to help decrease the presentation of certain symptoms associated with depression and anxiety.
B-Complex and Specific Conditions
Although B-Complex vitamins support a variety of lifestyles, there are specific conditions that can especially benefit. With meat consisting of a large amount of B vitamins, vegans and vegetarians naturally tend to lack the recommended daily intake of B vitamins.
Gastric bypass, although helpful with weight loss, negatively affects vitamin absorption in the gut. Often with bypass surgery segments of the gut are removed or bypassed, causing a decreased amount of vitamin absorption. Less food intake post gastric bypass can also affect B vitamin levels if foods are not chosen wisely. Other research studies have suggested that older adults are also at risk for developing B vitamin deficiency. Conditions that have also been found to benefit from B vitamin replacement are those with: alcohol dependence, cancer, AIDS, Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease, HIV, diabetes, depression, celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and type 1 diabetes.
Are B-Complex Vitamins Safe?
The B vitamins are water-soluble, meaning the body takes what it needs and excretes the rest through the urine, making B-Complex safe for most people. Consult with one of our medical providers or your primary physician before initiating B vitamins into your routine.
