Benefits of B-Complex
The B vitamins help to maintain the health of the nerves, skin, eyes, hair,
liver, and mouth, as well as healthy muscle tone in the gastrointestinal tract
and proper brain function. B-complex vitamins act as coenzymes, helping
enzymes to react chemically with other substances, and are involved in energy
production. They may be useful for alleviating depression or anxiety as
well. Adequate intake of the B vitamins is very important for elderly
people because these nutrients are not as well absorbed as we age. There
have been cases of people diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease whose problems were
later found to be due to a deficiency of vitamin B12 plus the B
complex. The B vitamins should always be taken together, but up to two to
three times more of one B vitamin than another can be taken for a period of time
if needed for a particular disorder. Because B vitamins work together, a
deficiency in one often indicates a deficiency in another.
