Vitamin B1 (thiamine) in some quantities can be synthesized by normal intestinal microflora. He is responsible for the transfer of information at the gene level, which is carried out in the process of cell division, strengthens the immune system, has anti-stress properties, takes part in almost all metabolic processes, and is necessary for the breakdown of simple carbohydrates. It takes part in the biosynthesis of acetylcholine, a mediator responsible for the transmission of impulses in the central nervous system, improves cognitive functions and memory, provides a normal tone of the digestive tract and myocardium.
Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) is an antiseborrheic vitamin that is ingested with food and is produced by the microflora of the large intestine. The body needs to create new nerve cells, the formation of red blood cells, for the absorption of iron. Regulates the production of hormones by the adrenal glands. Riboflavin is essential for the health of the entire body, especially skin, hair and nails, protects cells from early aging and reduces the risk of heart disease.
Vitamin B3 (niacin) is the most stable compound of B vitamins. It provides activity of the central nervous system, stimulates the formation of red blood cells, increases the level of high density lipoproteins in the blood, thereby lowering cholesterol and the risk of cardiovascular disease. It helps to reduce blood pressure, treats some skin diseases (acne), participates in the biosynthesis of a number of enzymes, is necessary for the production of hormones (including genital and insulin).
Vitamin B4 (choline) is involved in fat and cholesterol metabolism. It is part of the myelin sheath of nerves, protects the human brain throughout life. It normalizes the heart rhythm, restores liver tissue damaged by toxins and viruses, normalizes the functioning of the prostate gland, increases sperm activity, and prevents cholelithiasis.
Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) is involved in the breakdown of fats and carbohydrates, is involved in tissue regeneration, improves skin condition, and reduces signs of aging. It is necessary for the breakdown of lipids and carbohydrate compounds, the biosynthesis of neurotransmitters and antibodies.
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) is involved in the production of red blood cells, the synthesis of hemoglobin and antibodies in the regulation of nervous system activity. Helps the body synthesize the hormones of "sleep and stress" - serotonin, melatonin and norepinephrine. Regulates the activity of several tens of enzymes, allows the body to absorb proteins and unsaturated fatty acids, improves the condition of the skin and nails.
Vitamin B7 (Biotin) - a beauty vitamin. Returns health and beauty to skin, hair, nails, is useful for bone and nerve tissue, regulates the activity of sweat glands. Its action is aimed at improving our appearance.
Vitamin B8 (Inositol) is a vitamin of harmony. Helps reduce weight, protects against atherosclerosis, is useful for the brain, is involved in the regulation of cholesterol.
Vitamin B9 (folic acid) is involved in protein metabolism, it is important for the growth and division of cells, for the transmission of hereditary information, it is necessary for the synthesis of mediators of transmission of nerve impulses and blood cells.
Vitamin B10 (para-aminobenzoic acid) has an anti-allergic effect, is a powerful antioxidant that has a beneficial effect on the health of the skin, nails and hair, prevents premature skin aging and wrinkles, and protects against ultraviolet radiation. It takes part in hematopoiesis, the thyroid gland.
Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) - helps other B vitamins to fulfill their functions. Participates in the processes of growth and activity of the nervous system, in the formation of red blood cells and hemoglobin. The main source of B12 are animal products, and if you do not consume them in sufficient quantities, you can make up for the deficiency by taking supplements.
