Vitamin C (as Ascorbic Acid) - A powerful antioxidant, vitamin C can strengthen your body's natural defenses. Antioxidant molecules boost the immune system. As a result, they protect cells from free radicals, which are harmful molecules. The accumulation of free radicals can cause oxidative stress, which has been linked to many chronic diseases. Taking more vitamin C can increase your blood antioxidant levels by up to 30%. The body's natural defenses fight inflammation as a result of this. (1)
One-third of American adults have high blood pressure. Heart disease is the leading cause of death worldwide, and high blood pressure puts you at risk. Both people with and without high blood pressure may benefit from vitamin C. (2)
Globally, heart disease is the leading cause of death. There are many factors that increase the risk of heart disease, such as high blood pressure, high triglyceride or LDL (bad) cholesterol levels, and low HDL (good) cholesterol levels. These risk factors may be reduced by vitamin C, which may reduce the risk of heart disease. (3)
Thiamine (as Thiamine Mononitrate) (vitamin B1) - As thiamin is required for several basic cell functions and the breakdown of nutrients for energy, a deficiency can cause various problems in the brain and heart. In order to make adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the body needs thiamine. Energy is transported within cells by this molecule. (4)
Riboflavin (as Vitamin B2) - All B vitamins, including riboflavin, play a crucial role in converting carbohydrates, proteins, and fats into energy. The human body would not be able to function without it. Additionally, it can prevent or treat migraines, certain cancers, cataracts, preeclampsia, seizures, and dementia. Aside from its cardiovascular benefits, vitamin B2 helps maintain the metabolic integrity of the body, while minimizing harmful byproducts of metabolism, such as homocysteine. (5)
Niacin (as Niacinamide) (Vitamin B3) - Taking niacin may improve your blood fat levels by increasing HDL (good) cholesterol, reducing LDL (bad) cholesterol, and reducing triglycerides. However, several studies have not found a link between niacin supplementation and a decrease in heart disease risk. (6)
As a result of the release of prostaglandins, niacin improves blood flow and reduces blood pressure by widening your blood vessels. Thus, niacin may play a role in preventing or treating hypertension. (7)
To function properly, your brain needs niacin, which is part of the coenzymes NAD and NADP. Niacin deficiency can lead to brain fog and even psychiatric symptoms. Niacin can be used to treat schizophrenia, as it helps reverse brain damage caused by a niacin deficiency. (8)
Vitamin B6 (as Pyridoxine HCL) - The mood-regulating properties of vitamin B6 are important. This is partly due to the fact that this vitamin is necessary for the production of neurotransmitters that regulate emotions, including serotonin, dopamine, and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). The amino acid homocysteine has also been linked to depression and other psychiatric conditions, and vitamin B6 may help lower blood levels of the amino acid. There is conflicting research on whether vitamin B6 can improve brain function and prevent Alzheimer's disease. B6 reduces homocysteine blood levels, which can increase Alzheimer's risk. (9)(10)(11)
In addition to preventing clogged arteries, vitamin B6 may also reduce the risk of heart disease. According to research, people with low blood levels of vitamin B6 are almost twice as likely to get heart disease as those with high levels. The reason for this may be that B6 reduces elevated homocysteine levels associated with several disease processes, such as heart disease. After being exposed to homocysteine, rats deficient in vitamin B6 developed lesions that could cause artery blockages compared to rats with adequate B6 levels. (12)(13)
Folate - Folate plays an important role in maintaining good health. Your body uses it to make genetic material, such as DNA, which contains biological instructions. Furthermore, it promotes healthy cell division. (14)
Vitamin B12 (as Cyanocobalamin) - Vitamin B12 is essential to bone health, red blood cell production, energy levels, and mood. Your body produces red blood cells with the help of vitamin B12. When vitamin B12 levels are low, red blood cells are unable to form properly. Vitamin B12 deficiency causes red blood cells to become larger and oval instead of small and round. (15)
It may be beneficial for your bone health to maintain adequate levels of vitamin B12. In a study of 110 people with celiac disease, low levels of vitamin B12 were associated with decreased bone mineral density in the femur and hip. Over time, bones with decreased mineral density can become delicate and fragile, which increases the risk of osteoporosis. (16)
Your central vision is mainly affected by macular degeneration. Age-related macular degeneration may be prevented by maintaining adequate levels of vitamin B12. Homocysteine, a type of amino acid found in your bloodstream, may be reduced by supplementing with vitamin B12. The risk of age-related macular degeneration increases with elevated homocysteine levels. (17)(18)
According to a 2009 study involving 5,000 women over 40, supplementing with vitamin B12, folic acid, and vitamin B6 may reduce this risk. When compared to the placebo group, the group receiving these supplements for seven years had fewer cases of macular degeneration. There was a 34% lower risk of developing any form of the condition, and a 41% lower risk for the more severe forms. (19)
Your mood may be improved by vitamin B12. It is still unclear how vitamin B12 affects mood. The vitamin plays a vital role in synthesizing and metabolizing serotonin, the mood-regulating chemical. Vitamin B12 deficiency may lead to decreased serotonin production, resulting in depression. According to an older study on people with depression and low vitamin B12 levels, those who received both antidepressants and vitamin B12 were more likely to have improved depressive symptoms than those taking antidepressants alone. (20)
Biotin - Biotin is one of the eight B vitamins. It is also known as vitamin B-7 or vitamin H. Several enzymes known as carboxylases require biotin for their function. Glucose and fatty acids are produced through these processes. (21)
Pantothenic Acid (as D-Calcium Pantothenate) (vitamin B5) - In the B vitamin family, vitamin B5 is a water-soluble vitamin. By breaking down fats and carbohydrates, it produces energy. Additionally, it promotes healthy skin, hair, eyes, and liver. Coenzyme A is synthesized by vitamin B5. Fatty acids and cholesterol are converted into fatty acids and cholesterol by coenzyme A. (22)(23)
Choline (as Choline Bitartrate) - Dietary supplements and natural foods contain choline, an essential nutrient. Many metabolic steps require methyl groups, which are found in choline. Choline is necessary for the body to synthesize phosphatidylcholine and sphingomyelin, two major phospholipids. (24)
Inositol - A number of brain chemicals, including serotonin and dopamine, may be balanced by inositol. Researchers found that some people with depression, anxiety, and compulsive disorders have lower brain levels of inositol. (25)
