B Vitamins for brains

B for brains! We all know that B vitamins are essential for energy production at a cellular level however did you know just how important they are for brain function?, a recent study showed that people who took B vitamins were almost entirely protected from the brain shrinkage suffered by those who only took a placebo pill.
The three most important, B6, B12 and Folic Acid.
The main link is that these essential B vitamins effectively help keep in check our levels of an amino acid called homocysteine. Normally we don’t have much of this because it is quickly turned into two important brain chemicals, including acetylcholine, which is essential for laying down memories.
People with mild cognitive impairment may go on to develop Alzheimer's, as the usual conversion of homocysteine into acetylcholine is going wrong. And that’s where the B vitamins are thought to come in.
Who is most at risk? Older people, vegans and diabetics are particularly likely to be deficient.
Our bodies easily become deficient in these water soluble vitamins and certain restricted diets, illnesses and age are all contribute. Also heavy alcohol intake, long-term medication; make the natural extraction process even more difficult in the body, Some symptoms of deficiency include:
1. Lack of energy
2. Tingling and numbness in the feet and hands due to peripheral neuropathy
3. Memory loss
4. Mood swings
5. Depression
7. Anemia.
I suggest to my clients that taking a good B complex daily is a great insurance policy for the future, something to think about? If you would like a consultation please contact me
