Whats the function of B Vitamins?
B Vitamins are required directly for the energy production cycle, also called the kerb cycle.
They are used as important cofactors. Here are the important B vitamins and the co factors they are needed for:
Ninacin (B3) - NADH
Riboflavin (B2) - FADH
Pantothenate (B5) - Coenzyme A
Vitamin B12 - Methylmalonyl-CoA
NADH, FADH, Coenzyme A and methymalonyl-CoA feed directly into the kerb cycle where they aid in the production of ATP, a vital energy source. Insufficient intake of B Vitamins can impair energy production.
Benefits of B Vitamins :
* Improved in Energy Metabolism.
B Vitamins contribute towards oxygen transportation in the body. Vitamins B3, folate and B6 are well required for the synthesis of haeme proteins, including haemoglobin, necessary for iron transportation and energy production.
Anaemia can be caused by a deficiency in any of these nutrients, as well as a deficiency in iron. Even in the case of iron deficiency anaemia, Vitamin B Complex should be taken for a multi-therapeutic approach to recovery.
* Essential For The Proper Function of Thyroid Function
The thyroid is an essential gland for metabolism and energy production, and required Vitamin B2 to work effectively. Vitamin B2 is required as co-factor in the synthesis of flavoproteins (proteins that contain nucleic acids). These are essentail for the proper function of they thyroid.
* Improved In Mood & Sleep
B Vitamins are required for mood and sleep. Vitamin B6 and folate are required as co-factors in the synthesis of many neurotransmitters including Dopamine, Serotonin and GABA. Suboptimal levels of B6 can cause a decrease in the production of neurotransmitters, which can affect mood and sleep.
* Improved In Mental Performance
Vitamin B6 and Folate are required for the production of Serotonin. Serotonin is an essential neurotransmitter in our ability to cope with stress. Apart of Vitamin B, Vitamin C is a core nutrient in the stress response, and is stored and released by the adrenal gland in times of stress. B Vitamins are needed as co-factors in the synthesis of Adrenaline, which is produced by the adrenal glands in times of stress. In times of chronic stress, these can quickly become depleted.
