With the coming of the Coronavirus COVID-19 we have all seen the worst form of uncontrolled hysterical fear in Australia. (Toilet Paper being fought over at Coles And Woolworths) This has been building in many Australian’s as the modern social media continue to feed their fear… and with fear the human body can register this fear as a potential attack and start burning off Vitamin B! This is an example of how dangerous modern media can be, and you can not open Facebook without being bombarded with news both good and bad.
Hysterical behaviour has been seen just before every cyclone that has ever threatened North Queensland. With new folk from the South who have moved here and attempt to by 20 bottles of milk and I have pointed out that unless you have generator you will loose all this milk when the power goes off… And they stop and look at me with fear and exclaim, “We Loose The Power??” Yes we do!
Uncontrolled hysterical fear in Australia is sadly real, and can make good folk be incredibly selfish. EG Hoarding Toilet Paper for the coming apocalypse.
Sadly for those overcome with hysterical fear… They can not identify that they need help to relax and chill.
It is stress time, the Coronavirus COVID-19 is as real as bills are coming. Your work still wants 25-hour days and the kids absolutely need the 64-gig 4G Ipad instead of the 16-gig cheapy with wi-fi. Feeling your hair turning grey yet? Well, it’s not just the follicles that suffer when the pressure is on. And while you’re burning the midnight oil, you’re burning your minerals and vitamins too…particularly the ones that could help you stay calm. So let’s look at one of our little helpers and what they can do for you – Vitamin B.
The B-group consists of eight different vitamins the body needs in small doses, but all are vital for your metabolic processes such as energy production, red blood cell synthesis, nerve function and brain processes. When your body has had a stress response, the adrenalin and cortisol it produces burns up the various Vitamin B-s in your bloodstream and leaves you with nothing to spare when the adrenalin goes away.
Most B-s cannot be stored by the body as they are water soluble, which means you’ve got to keep ingesting them regularly as part of a nutritious and well balanced diet. They can also be easily destroyed through food processing, mixing with alcohol and extended cooking.
Good sources of Vitamin B-s include wholemeal cereal grains, sesame seeds, legumes, wheatgerm, nuts, yeast, pork, milk, yoghurt, cottage cheese, egg, leafy green vegetables, liver, kidney, fish, poultry, red meats, mushrooms, cauliflower and citrus fruits.
There are eight B-group vitamins and they are essential for energy production, red blood cell synthesis and, well, lots of other things. These are all different chemicals and having just one means you’re not getting the rest. Here’s a quick break down of what each of those B-s stand for.
B1 – Thiamine; converts carbohydrates into energy, involved in DNA production and nerve function
B2 – Riboflavin; energy production
B3 – Niacine; metabolises glucose, fat and alcohol
B5 – Pantothenic Acid; needed for the oxidation of fatty acids and carbohydrates plus the synthesis of amino acids, ketones and antibodies
B6 – Pyridoxamine; metabolises amino acids and haemoglobin
B7 – Biotin; metabolises lipids, proteins and carbohydrates
B9 – Folic Acid; needed for cell division, particularly during pregnancy and for red blood cells
B12 – Cyanocobalamin; needed to produce blood cells in bone marrow, nerve sheaths and proteins
So if you’re going out to buy vitamin supplements, make sure those pills have all these goodies in them, because, face it, this is one lot of vitamins that are group, not an individual…
Symptoms of Vitamin B deficiency can include irritability, decreased coordination, lethargy, fatigue, muscle weakness, anxiety, intestinal upset and muscle pain. If you have concerns that you may have a vitamin deficiency you should have them diagnosed by a doctor. Vitamin supplements can be taken as a supplement for a balanced diet and should only be taken as directed by the manufacturer on the side of the bottle or by Benita Barwick Nutritionist Townsville, dieticians or accredited natural therapists.
