Essential Ingredients for a Balanced Body- Vitamin B

B-group vitamins are a group of 8 vitamins that the body needs in small doses but are vital for metabolic processes such as energy production, red blood cell synthesis, nerve function and brain processes. When a body has had a stress response, the body has increased its energy consumption and thus will increase its use of Vitamin B.

Most Vitamins within this group cannot be stored by the body as they are water soluble and so must be consumed regularly as part of a nutritious and well balanced diet. They are also easily destroyed through food processing, alcohol and extended cooking.

Good sources of Vitamin B 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.

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, these deficiencies must be 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 dieticians or accredited natural therapists.
