Like vitamin C, vitamin B is a water soluble vitamin, meaning that it can’t be stored in the body, therefore requiring a daily intake to meet the body’s needs. To further complicate it, there are up to eight different vitamin Bs, all in charge of different yet equally important functions in your body. Deficiency in any one of them can lead to problems ranging from brittle hair and nails, to mood swings and depression. It is therefore important to consume a wide variety of foods, to make sure that you get all the vitamins that you need, but we are all aware that in the stressful life of today’s society it can be hard to find the time to go on culinary explorations, or you might need to stick to a certain diet due to specific circumstances.
In such cases, taking a B-complex supplement will both save you time, and make sure that you get your daily dose of vitamins.
1 capsule per day together with food. We highly discourage you from taking more than the recommended dosage. While the excess amount will generally get washed out with your urine, a continued surplus of vitamin B can still be dangerous, causing symptoms such as nausea, sleep issues and feelings of restlessness. If you don’t stop with the excessive consumption even then, it may lead to heart issues and nerve damage.
Coral calcium is, as the name suggests, calcium that comes from corals. Corals are made up of small animals called polyps, that gather in colonies. They are usually protected by a hard shell made of mainly calcium carbonate, and when the polyp dies, that shell is left behind. Coral calcium is consumed in cases of low bone density or mineral deficiency, as this type of calcium is believed to be easily absorbed by the body. It is also sometimes used in surgery, when they use pieces of coral to replace bones. The one used in our capsules come from ancient, long dead coral reefs outside of Okinawa, and no living coral was harmed in the farming of this ingredient.
Vitamin B1 (thiamine) helps to break down glucose and other carbohydrates into energy. It plays an important role in making sure that your nerves and muscles work properly, and in the regulation of electrolyte flow to and from you muscles and nerves.
Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) helps to break down food components such as proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. It also makes the body absorb nutrients, store energy in muscles, and maintain tissue. Riboflavin can be found in cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli. Dieticians suggest that you steam the vegetables, to make sure that they don’t lose as little as possible of their nutritional value.
Vitamin B3 (niacin) is an important component when it comes to cellular metabolism, as well as cell signaling and DNA repair. It has been used to improve cholesterol levels, though in these cases it must be taken with precaution, as too high doses of niacin might be harmful for the body.
Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) can be found in almost all foods, therefore the name pantou. It plays a vital role in forming red blood cells, hormones related to stress and sex, synthesizing cholesterol, and converting food into glucose. It is also very beneficial for your hair, skin, eyes and liver.
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) is very important for the body, as it has the main function of aiding in the production of neurotransmitters, which are crucial for a healthy central nervous system. It plays a role in over enzyme reactions, and manufactures hemoglobin, which is the component in the red blood cells that is responsible for carrying oxygen.
Choline is an essential nutrient that is needed for synthesization of phospholipids that makes up your cell membranes, and acetylcholine that works as a neurotransmitter for memory, mood, muscle control, and other brain functions. While the liver produces some choline, it is far from the daily need of the human body, and therefore needs to be reinforced through diet and supplements.
PABA stands for Para-Aminobenzoic Acid, and is an organic, chemical compound that is found in folic acid (vitamin B9) and some foods, such as grains, eggs, and milk. It is taken by mouth as treatment for skin conditions, as well as healthy hair. PABA can also be found in some sunscreens, as it can block UV radiation. In this case, it is applied on top of the skin, not eaten.
Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) can only be consumed through animal products, or supplements. It maintains healthy nerve tissue and brain function. It is involved in the metabolism in every cell of your body, and plays a key role in the production of red blood cells.
Vitamin 9 (folic acid) has an important role to play when it comes to cell metabolism. More specifically, it aids in the synthesization of DNA and RNA, which means that it’s crucial that you get enough folic acid during pregnancy and the teenage years, when growth spurts occur. Folic acid also helps the body absorb nutrients and convert it into energy.
Vitamin 7 (biotin) is responsible for keeping your hair and nails healthy, as well as converting the food you consume into energy. It is also known to help stabilize blood sugar levels, DNA, and help improve the neurologic functions. As the majority of foods contain biotin in various doses, a deficiency in it is rare, but the symptoms in such cases are skin issues, hair loss, fatigue, and fungal infections.
Inositol has sometimes been referred to as vitamin B8, but the truth is that inositol isn’t really a vitamin. It can be synthesized from glucose, and can be found in your spinal marrow. As the body can produce enough inositol on its own, it is not considered an essential nutrient, and therefore lost its status as a vitamin. It is beneficial for hair and skin, and a deficiency in it can lead to depression.
