The human body needs a wide range of nutrients, minerals, and vitamins to sustain good health and optimal function. One of the most vital vitamins that supports a broad spectrum of bodily functions and systems while also promoting normal development and healthy growth is the vitamin B complex. It comprises of a total of 8 different vitamins, all essential for maintaining good health. Since they are water-soluble vitamins, the human body cannot store them. Instead, they need to be consumed on a daily basis via proper nutrition. Glycogenics is formulated with an advanced vitamin B complex.
The Vitamin B complex usually contains:
B1 (thiamine) – It helps turn nutrients consumed during meals into energy.
B2 (riboflavin) – Acts as an antioxidant that also supports the food-energy conversion.
B3 (niacin) – A very important vitamin for cell repair, DNA production, metabolism, and cellular signaling.
B4 (pantothenic acid) – It helps regulate the production of cholesterol and is also involved in hormone production.
B7 (biotin) – It helps regulate gene expression and is vital for the metabolism of fat and carbohydrates.
B9 (folate) – It plays a key role in the formation of white and red blood cells, cell growth, proper cell division, and amino acid metabolism.
B12 (cobalamin) – Its contribution to the development of red blood cells, the production of DNA, and for sustaining normal neurological function is admirable.
B-complex vitamins are also found to combat mood swings and depression, support normal cardiovascular function, and promote mental sharpness. Gycogenics contains all high-potency vitamins of the B complex in perfect balance for optimal health, plus L-5-methyl tetrahydrofolate - a nature-identical, body-ready form of folate – alongside supportive nutrients.
Health Benefits of B-Complex Vitamins
Gene Regulation – The body needs a very small amount of folic acid to synthesize new cells and genes and repair damaged genes when the body is undergoing a phase of healing or growth.
Cardiovascular Disease – Low levels of B12, B6, and folic acid can result in increases in homocysteine blood levels, which causes damage to the cells of the blood vessels and allows the deposition of cholesterol. According to recent studies, people taking high doses of B-complex vitamins exhibit less thickening of their blood vessel walls.
Depression – B-complex vitamins are known as anti-stress nutrients, with many of them having a direct impact on perception and mood. Vitamin C and high doses of vitamin B3 are used to treat recently diagnosed schizophrenia while B1 improves moods. Vitamin B6 is required to produce a neurotransmitter called serotonin, which is appreciated for its antidepressant properties.
Blood Sugar – Vitamin B1 and B7 help maintain normal blood sugar levels. The body needs B7 to make the hormone that controls the levels of glucose (called insulin). Also, B7 helps regulate the genes involved in glucose metabolism and also contributes to lowering triglyceride levels while B1 helps reduce urine protein (microalbuminuria) in people with Type-2 diabetes.
Cognitive Function – Vitamin B12 deficiency (when the vitamin is not properly absorbed by the system) can lead to atrophic gastritis and can also mimic some types of dementia, Alzheimer’s disease included. The cognitive function can be restored by taking vitamin B12.
Macular Degeneration – Researchers have shown that large amounts of B-complex vitamins can reduce the likeliness of age-related macular degeneration by 1/3.
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin 6
- Pantothenic Acid
A vitamin-like nutrient that has been designated as essential by the National Academy of Sciences in 1998. It is a vital component for the synthesis of both lecithin and a key neurotransmitter (acetylcholine), which help process cholesterol and fat, transmit nerve impulses, and maintain cell membranes, among others. It is also crucial for fetus brain development, and is claimed to reduce heart disease and blood cholesterol too.
A sugar alcohol and a key component of cell membranes that is critical for maintaining a healthy number of protein particles. It also plays a vital role in various biological processes, such as the consumption of energy and the regulation of cell volume. It is possible to also help with mental conditions, like obsessive-compulsive disorder, depression, and panic disorder and help with diabetes during pregnancy while it also enhances insulin sensitivity and decreases blood sugar levels in people with diabetes.
Inositol is found to:
- Improve the outcome of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS).
- Prevent metabolic syndrome.
- Help in weight-loss.
- Protect the brain.
- Promote sleep.
- Ameliorate eating disorders.
- Prevent heart disease.
- Protect the lungs.
- Boost skin health.
Para-Aminobenzoic acid (PABA)
An organic compound that is used to synthesize folic acid. It is proven to help manage fibrotic skin conditions, irritable bowel syndrome, and the production of normal fibrous tissues and red blood cells.
