June 2016 Monthly Quiz – Vitamin B Deficiency
We encourage our practice members to consider adding a quality B vitamin to their supplement protocol since they are used in nearly every process in the body, including a co-factor in metabolic pathways.
Case-in-point is the way the greens you consume convert to healthy fats for heart and brain function. The B’s are part of the process converting raw material, or the food we choose to long-chain fatty acids. When B’s are missing, the process of normal physiology cannot be completed as normal.
B vitamins are also used with nerve function, creating digestive enzymes, pain relief, heart valve closure, and muscle and carbohydrate metabolism. The B’s are helpful to prevent anxiety, blood sugar stress, adrenal fatigue, brain health and a seemingly endless list of possibilities.
We can assess the B vitamin need via a urine test, our Acoustic CardioGraph, and by evaluating blood serum levels in a basic chemistry profile. The common B vitamins would include B1, B2, B3, B4 (or Choline not commonly known, but for heart health) B5, B6, B7 or Biotin, B9 Folate or Folic acid.
These are common body signals of those who are in need of vitamin B. Do you have any of these?
