The B vitamins

Vitamins are essential components of our food that our body needs for vital functions but is unable to produce by itself or in sufficient amounts. It is thus important to consume enough vitamins regularly with our food. In the first place, vitamins are of importance for the human metabolism and hormonal balance. They are divided in two major classes – fat-soluble and water-soluble vitamins. The body is able to stock fat-soluble vitamins. To the contrary, water-soluble vitamins need to be consumed every day because the body can’t stock them. B vitamins are water-soluble. They form an inconsistent class of vitamins of different chemical and structural properties. What they share is being components of so-called co-enzymes.  Co-enzyme play an essential role for the proper function of enzymes in our body, which control the entire metabolic process.

B vitamins as nutritional supplement

Plant- and animal-based foodstuffs are vitamin sources. To supplement our diet, it may be advisable consuming vitamins as nutritional supplements. With respect to the amount, the recommendations issued by the DGE (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Ernährung / German Nutrition Society ) can serve as guideline. 
Vitapas® B complex combines all important B vitamins.

Functions of the B vitamins

The individual B vitamins have most different functions, some of which, though, do complement each other. Within the scope of its official, scientifically recognised health claims, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) describes many of these important functions.
Nearly B vitamins have positive effects on the energy metabolism (B1, B2, B3, B5,) and the neural system (B1, B2, B6, B7,and B12). Many of them are required to maintain normal physical functions (B1, B3, B7, and B12) and help reducing fatigue and weariness (B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, and B12). Vitamins B6, B9, and B12 also support maintaining a normal homocysteine metabolism.

Vitamin B1 (thiamine) – for a healthy heart

Vitamin B1 is also known as “mood vitamin”. Apart from that, it supports normal cardiac functions. Moreover, thiamine helps maintaining normal functions with respect to

  • energy metabolism
  • neural system
  • mental system
  • heart

Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) – counteracts oxidative stress

Riboflavin plays a special role when it comes to maintaining the mucous membranes, the skin, and the vision in a normal state. Moreover, vitamin B2 helps protecting the cells from oxidative stress.

Riboflavin helps maintaining normal functions with respect to

  • energy metabolism
  • neural system
  • iron metabolism

Riboflavin helps maintaining normal

  • mucous membranes
  • erythrocytes
  • skin
  • vision

Moreover, it helps...

  • protecting cells from oxidative stress and
  • reducing fatigue and weariness

Vitamin B3 (niacin) – for sound mucous membranes

Next to its importance for our metabolism and neural system, niacin – just like riboflavin is essential for healthy skin and mucous membranes.

Niacin supports

  • a normal energy metabolism
  • normal functions of the neural
  • normal mental functions 
  • maintaining normal mucous membranes 
  • maintaining normal skin
  • reducing fatigue and weariness 

Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) – for the mind

Vitamin B5 is also known as pantothenic acid. It contributes to normal mental functions and helps to maintain a normal metabolism of hormones, messengers  (neurotransmitters), and vitamin D.

Pantothenic acid supports

  • a normal energy metabolism
  • a normal synthesis and a normal metabolism of steroid hormones
  • vitamin D and certain neurotransmitters
  • reducing fatigue and weariness
  • maintaining normal mental functions 

Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine, pyridoxamine, and pyridoxal) – for the immune system

Apart from being important with respect to the human protein- and sugar metabolism and hormonal activities, vitamin B6 plays an essential role in the formation of red blood cells and for the immune system.

Vitamin B6 supports (a) normal

  • energy metabolism
  • functions of the neural system
  • homocysteine metabolism 
  • protein and glycogen metabolism 
  • psychic functions
  • formation of red blood cells
  • immune functions

Moreover, it helps

  • reducing fatigue and weariness and
  • regulating the hormonal activities 

Vitamin B7 (biotin) – for hair, skin, toe and finger nails

Vitamin B7 or biotin is the most important vitamin for normal and healthy hair, skin, and toe and finger nails. Moreover, it contributes to numerous normal body functions.

Biotin supports the normal function of

  • energy metabolism
  • neural system
  • macronutrient metabolism
  • mind

Moreover, biotin helps maintaining normal

  • hair
  • mucous membranes
  • skin

Vitamin B9 (folic acid / folate) – of particular importance for pregnant women

Vitamin B9 was formerly called vitamin B11. However, it is better known as folic acid.  This vitamin stands in close relation to cells and is important for all growth processes that involve cell division. It also supports the normal formation of protein components (amino acids). That’s why pregnant women need to consume more vitamin B9.

Folate contributes to (a) normal

  • amino acid synthesis
  • formation of blood
  • homocysteine metabolism
  • mental functions
  • immune functions

Folate plays a role in cell division and helps

  • reducing fatigue and weariness.  

Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) – for cell regeneration

Vitamin B12 is essential in cell regeneration, for the formation of normal red blood cells, and for a healthy neural system. Apart from that, vitamin B12 is required to activate folic acid.

Vitamin B12 contributes to (a) normal

  • energy metabolism
  • functions of the neural system
  • homocysteine metabolism
  • mental functions
  • formation of red blood cells
  • immune functions 

Moreover, vitamin B12 plays a role in cell division and helps reducing fatigue and weariness.
