The Benefits of B Vitamins...

The importance of Vitamin B is undeniable as it plays a vital role in hair, skin and brain health. B Vitamins are heavily involved with supporting brain function and the nervous system, and during times of stress, these vitamins work extra hard to help you hold it together – physically, emotionally and mentally! 

Vitamin B12 contributes to your mood
Vitamin B12 plays a key role in the manufacture of neurotransmitters such as serotonin, epinephrine, norepinephrine, acetylcholine and dopamine. These brain messengers contribute to keeping you happy and allowing for good memory, focus, attention and understanding. 
Energy levels
Vitamin B12 plays a fundamental role in the body’s production of red blood cells. Without adequate levels of the vitamin in your body, the production of red blood cells can be impacted and can affect the transportation of oxygen to vital organs, causing weakness and fatigue. 
This means deficiencies can often create extreme tiredness. In addition, inadequate levels of vitamin B12 can reduce bone mineral density, causing bones to become fragile over time. 
The importance of Vitamin B
Hormone Balance 
Increasing scientific evidence shows the important role B6 plays in hormone balance, nervous system function and normal brain chemistry, all of which are relevant to many of the commonly experienced premenstrual symptoms. Early research identified that B6 supplementation could relieve a range of premenstrual symptoms including depression, bloating and breast tenderness more effectively than a placebo.  
Stress Resilience 
The B vitamins are vital for stress tolerance, as well as being essential to normal nervous system function. Specific B vitamins are also needed for adrenal function and hormone manufacture, so deficiencies in these are often associated with anxiety and nervous disorders. Low levels of vitamin B6 and B12 have been observed in those suffering from panic attacks and anxiety. 
Although some foods contain B vitamins, they are water-soluble substances meaning they are easily lost during some cooking methods. You need a daily intake of B vitamins as they are not stored in the body, are used quickly for many body processes and are readily eliminated via the urine.
So, taking a daily supplement makes sense to help avoid a deficiency.

Altrient's cutting-edge technology means the active ingredients are encapsulated into a double-walled lipid structure that surrounds and protects the Vitamin C on its journey through the harsh environment of the stomach.
Once in the gut, the liposome is rapidly absorbed and enters the bloodstream intact, to be circulated around the body and delivered to tissues and cells of the body where it's needed most.

The Vitamin B group is paramount to energy production, playing a crucial part in many key cellular functions. From tiredness and fatigue to maintenance of skin, hair and nails - a well-formulated B formula can support and optimise health, with aesthetic benefits.
