Reasons why vitamin B is considered the Wonder Vitamin
We all want to be healthy so that we can enjoy the pleasures of life every day. However, most of the time, our desires are not on the same wavelength as reality. There will always be situations where we’ll be required to choose between health and a lifestyle without culinary restrictions or effort. And that can be challenging…
What if we tell you that living a balanced life and feeling your best is easy as pie?
All you have to do is step out of your comfort zone and think long-term. This involves a good diet, body movement, sleep, and frequent visits to the doctor for routine checks.
Besides adopting and following these habits, getting the recommended amount of vitamins each day is essential for preventive care and keeping your body vigorous. B vitamins are indispensable for that. According to Simon Willis, MD, Board certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, B vitamins “are a group of extremely important vitamins that help cells and enzymes in our bodies carry out their jobs more efficiently.”
The B-complex is made up of eight vitamins – B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, and B12. Let’s see what their benefits are.
B1(Thiamine) –for preventing Beriberi
Also known as the good mood vitamin, B1 is essential for physical and mental health, with beneficial effects on the nervous system, muscles, and heart. Vitamin B1 deficiency leads to Beriberi disease, with symptoms including asthenia, headache, insomnia, intense fatigue, decreased muscle capacity, and weight loss.
B2 (Riboflavin) – boosts and protects the immune system
Vitamin B2 acts as an antioxidant, helping the body fight free radicals. This type of B vitamin prevents premature aging, helps turn fats, carbohydrates, and proteins into energy, and maintains healthy skin, hair, and eyes. A diet rich in Vitamin B2 may also increase energy levels, boost the immune system, treat acne and muscle cramps, and prevent migraines.

B3 (Niacin) – controls cholesterol levels
The B3 vitamin has the ability to reduce the level of LDL (bad cholesterol) and stimulate the increase of HDL (good cholesterol) levels. The body uses niacin to help maintain healthy cells and tissues. Like the other two vitamins, it also has antioxidant properties, contributes to hormone secretion, detoxifies your body, and breaks down the food you eat into the energy your body needs.
B5 (Pantothenic acid) – for balanced hormones
Vitamin B5, also called pantothenic acid, is vital for a healthy life. Like all B-complex vitamins, B5 helps turn food into energy. B5 is found naturally in many food sources, and even the name pantothenic means everywhere. Vitamin B5 helps create red blood cells, generates stress and sex hormones, maintains a normal digestive tract, processes other vitamins (especially B2), and synthesizes cholesterol.
B6 (Pyridoxine) – for healthy metabolism
Along with vitamins B9 and B12, vitamin B6 keeps the level of homocysteine, an amino acid associated with heart disease, in check. Pyridoxine inhibits the production of the toxic chemical, homocysteine, which attacks the heart muscle, thus preventing cardiovascular disease. It also helps with serotonin, norepinephrine, and melatonin hormone formation, all of which influence our emotional state and the body's natural biological clock.
B7 (Biotin) – for beautiful nails, hair, and skin
Known as vitamin H, biotin, and the beauty vitamin, B7 is associated with healthy hair, beautiful nails, and glowing skin. At the same time, biotin helps balance blood sugar levels, improves memory, and keeps the nervous system healthy.
B9 (Folic acid) – for red blood cells production
Vitamin B9 is a necessary nutrient for the growth and development of your body. It helps to form new cells, especially red blood cells, and strengthens the immune system. Studies have shown that folic acid prevents depression and memory disorders.
B12 (Cobalamin) – to avoid anemia
B12 is a crucial vitamin. It mainly contributes to the production of red blood cells, preventing iron-deficiency anemia. B12 also helps prevent osteoporosis by supporting bone health. Additionally, it protects your immune system, and keeps your heart healthy.
With all these benefits, it’s not surprising that vitamin B is considered the Wonder Vitamin.
