Last week we learned about Biotin or B7 the “Beauty Vitamin” responsible for Healthy Hair, Skin and Nails and today we are going to go a little deeper into three others in the B’ Family that promote overall health and wellbeing.
And one nutrient in the B family that has been directly linked to improving the effects of depression and PMS...
As a reminder all B vitamins are water soluble which means they break down in water -- so anything your body doesn’t use is naturally eliminated.
B3 -- Also known as Niacin helps support cellular energy production and boosts the good cholesterol HDL -- in addition it has also been shown to reduce inflammation, redness, pour size and oil on the surface of skin creating a firmer more youthful appearance.
Think of Niacin as your internal skin moisturizer -- healing the cells and pours from the inside makes your moisturizer and face cream work all the better.
B6 -- Or Pyridoxine plays two critical roles in overall health.
First it is responsible for assisting in the metabolic process so you can properly break down fats, proteins and carbohydrates -- Eat more of the foods you love and burn it instead of store it!
But more importantly B6 interacts directly with your neurotransmitters that are responsible for regulating your mood.
Happy chemicals like serotonin and dopamine require B6 and deficiencies in this nutrient are directly linked to depression and irritability.
Research has even been supporting B6 as a natural mood stabilizer for symptoms related to PMS.
And during a recent 3 month placebo study a group of women found significant reduction in symptoms related to PMS while supplementing with B6.
The last in line is vitamin B12 known as Cobalamin -- think of this as the team player it is one of the most popular B Vitamins because of the role it plays in overall cell development. It is the essential vitamin that helps build DNA -- the building block for all cells in our body.
