B Vitamins, Stress & Sleep
The B vitamins are a group of water-soluble vitamins originally thought to be one vitamin. Ultimately research revealed that there are in fact a variety of B vitamins, and each plays an important role in our health.
If you want higher energy levels — without the jitters of caffeine — try increasing your intake of B vitamins every day. Your levels of B vitamins can also affect your sleep. Hectic lifestyles, eating on the run, aging, and other factors can create B vitamin deficiencies.
Supplements containing all eight of the Bs are called a vitamin B "complex". Individual B supplements, such as B6 and B12, can also be purchased for their specific health benefits.
The B-vitamins help regulate and balance the body’s metabolism and they are essential for a healthy nervous system. B vitamin deficiencies can lead to increased stress and stress-related illnesses.
If you don't consistently eat adequate quantities of whole foods rich in B vitamins — like fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains, and legumes — you may need to supplement with a B complex.
Webber naturals B complex supplements provide either 50 milligrams or 100 milligrams of each of the B vitamins you need to fight stress and support good health. You need all the B vitamins, in balance, for optimal mental and physical energy.
B12 is important for nervous system function and also helps the heart, memory and learning. B12 tablets, dissolved under the tongue, have been shown to improve sleep. Our ability to absorb B12 from our food decreases with age, so adults 50 years and older should consider supplementation.
B-Calm Stress Relief, from webber naturals, combines 50 milligrams of each of the key B vitamins, PLUS Sensoril, an adaptogenic herb that improves energy and vitality, while reducing effects of physical and mental stress.
Try B-Calm if you feel stressed-out, tense and tired, or if you suffer from poor concentration, poor sleep or diminished vitality.
The B-vitamins are very safe because they are water-soluble and do not accumulate in the body. So get your Bs every day!
