Know your B Vitamins.
We know we need vitamins but do we really know what each of them does and how important they are for our body and mind?
Our Vit Stix contains B5, B6 and B12. Overall it improves cognitive functions, gives you better eyesight, improves digestion and helps maintain a healthy heart.
Here’s a breakdown of the B vitamins in our Vit Stixs and how they can help you on a daily basis.
Vitamin B 12 helps the body metabolise homocysteine and gives you an energy boost. Homocysteine is an amino acid that, if not checked, can be a risk factor for the heart and blood vessel disease.
Healthy vitamins B12 levels are also important for your hair, skin and nails. Vitamin B12 promotes cell reproduction, reducing redness in the skin and strengthens both skin and hair.
How do you know if you’re deficient in B12?
You may notice the following;
- Brain fog, memory loss, lack of motivation or prolonged feelings of apathy
- Mood swings and grouchiness
- Fatigue/low energy
- Muscle weakness
We cannot synthesize Vitamin B5 – it must be obtained from an outside source.
Vitamin B5 is often on some lists of nootropic supplements because it can improve learning capacity, help the mind focus and reduce brain fog. Nootropics are natural, non-toxic drugs that can enhance memory or other cognitive functions.
Stress starts in your head – literally and figuratively. Vitamin B5 has been called the ‘anti-stress vitamin’ because it detoxifies brain tissue to help relieve physical and emotional stress.
B5 also moisturises skin, helps to heal wounds and enhances elasticity of skin and hair.
White blood cells are your body’s defense team, so it’s important to keep them primed. Vitamin B6 assists in maintaining white blood cells so they can do their job.
B6 gives us these benefits;
- Improving sleep
- Improving your mood
- Lowering risks of heart disease
- Helping treat stress and depression
- Producing red blood cells that carry oxygen around the body.
B Vitamins are the reasons why Vit Stix give you the benefits of improving your cognitive function and giving you a natural energy boost without additional sugars to your diet.
