Why Do They Call Vitamin B The Happy Vitamin?

Why do they call Vitamin B The Happy Vitamin?

Because when you take your B’s, a good quality B Complex it shifts your mood, your mental clarity and your energy. ALL things to feel pretty darn happy about.

Stress, among other things depletes Vitamin B. I swear by my B’s, it’s the number one nutrient I recommend to anyone who leads full and stressful lives.

Vitamin B Complex

Some things to know about B Vitamins:

All B’s must be taken together in a complex form…This includes Thiamin, Riboflavin, B6, B12, Niacin, Folic Acid, Biotin, and Pantothenic Acid. ( all b complex vitamins are not created equal, as a matter of fact most regularly skimp on  folic acid and the biotin )

B Vitamins are water soluble. (this means you burn through them and they are not stored in the body)

The more processed “snicky snacky” stuff you eat the more B Vitamins you need.

B Vitamins are depleted by these foods: coffee, alcohol, refined sugar and white flour. (aka as the four basic food groups – ha! )

They are destroyed by sleeping pills, sulfa drugs, estrogen: birth control and hormone replacement therapy

B Vitamins convert food to energy. ( this is the coolest thing )

Infection and stress increase the need for B’s. ( the stress part especially )

B Vitamins are necessary for normal function by the nervous system.

B Vitamins help produce protective antibodies.

B Vitamins assist with the manufacturing of healthy blood cells.

B Vitamins redistribute fat and convert fat to energy.

B Vitamins are needed by the body to reduce homocysteine levels.

B Vitamins reduce the risk of heart disease.

B Vitamins prevent birth defects, cervical dysplacia, and colon cancer.

B Vitamins promote healthy hair and skin.

B Vitamins support normal growth in children.
If you think of the nerves, the brain, your hormones and your adrenals, all of these are areas in the body that benefit the most from B Vitamins.

If your not taking a quality B Complex, please consider our product.

Knowing that no two peoples needs are the same – watch the color of your urine as your gauge

( I know — I’m talking about the color of your pee! Oh my gosh.)

If you take a B Complex in the morning and your urine is pale by lunch time you are burning through your  B.

This means you need to take more and take it though out the day.

Taking B Vitamins definitely can contribute to a shift in attitude!
