B Vitamins are extremely important when it comes to your health and weight loss.
Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) is important for nerve function and for energy.
Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) and B6 (Pyridoxin) helps normalize your metabolism and thyroid function. If either are too low, it makes it very difficult to lose weight or to keep the weight off. B6 is needed to convert protein into usable energy.
Vitamin B3 (Niacin) is also helpful in increasing thyroid function.
Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid) helps your body utilize fat by increasing the adrenal function and plays a role in your energy level.
Vitamin B7 (Biotin) is needed to metabolize carbohydrates, proteins and fats and supports healthy skin.
Vitamin B12 works to create healthy red blood cells, maintains a healthy nervous system, and helps the body absorb food and metabolize protein, carbohydrates and fat. It is also very helpful in digestion. Because B12 is water soluble, it's lost in urine, so it's important to take a supplement to prevent deficiencies.
Choline and Inositol are complex B vitamins that are synthesized in your body and are critical in metabolizing fat.Read »
