Vitamin B1 (Thiamin, Aneurine) - strengthens the nerves and muscles. Deficiency causes the disease beri-beri (inflammation of the joints, muscles). It plays an important role in the metabolism of carbohydrates. B1 strengthens the central nervous system, removes depression and enhances memory. Lack of the vitamin causes that neurons die, leading to the fatal consequences of mental activity. The brain fails to receive information, their use, thinking, creation, storage and processing. Risk of Alzheimer's disease. Best sources are: yeast, legumes, sprouts, nuts, offal, oatmeal and vegetables.
Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) is a growth vitamin. Deficiency causes swelling of the lips, tongue, conjunctivitis. It plays an important role in intracellular respiration. Vitamin B2 participates in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins, promotes growth, healthy skin, hair and nails, helps to maintain good vision. Sources: dairy products, salmon, offal, yeast, eggs, beer, fruits, seeds, almonds, vegetables, liver.
Vitamin B5 (Acidum panthotenicum) is an anti-stress vitamin. It is involved in removing toxins and excretion of drugs from the body. It supports the immune system of mucous membranes and hair growth. It increases fertility and promotes longevity. As part of coenzyme A it plays an important role in the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates and various amino acids and the synthesis of fatty acids and cholesterol. Lack of causes fatigue, sleep disturbances, gastrointestinal inflammation, rapid heartbeat, diarrhea, dermatitis (skin inflammation). Sources: occurs in all living matter, offal, yeast, egg yolk, green vegetables, liver, meat, wheat germ.
Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) maintains a central activity of muscles, it is soothing. It participates in the formation of bile acid, is involved in the formation of red blood cells, nucleic acids and antibodies. It is very important for children's growth and prevent hardening of the arteries. Sources: cheese, milk, meat, bananas, yeast, wheat germ, eggs, sardines, potatoes, whole wheat bread.
Vitamin B9 (Folic Acid) reduces the blood called homocysteine in the blood, which is attributed to the role of a sensitive indicator of risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer. It is important for the production of red blood cells, DNA synthesis (wearing molecular genetic information), tissue growth and cell function. In addition, increases appetite and stimulates the production of stomach acid. Lack of: anemia, diarrhea, mal-absorption disorders, neurological, reproductive and growth problems. Sources: Fresh green leafy vegetables, offal, eggs, nuts, liver, meat.
PABA (Para-aminobenzoic acid) belongs to the B vitamins - vitamin B10. It helps to maintain healthy skin, nails and hair. It protects skin from the negative effects of UV radiation. It has positive effect on the skin disease called vitiligo (loss of pigment to the skin = white spots). It protects the lungs from the harmful effects of ozone, which is found in smog and cigarette smoke. It is suitable for smokers. Hematopoietic supports and participates in the utilization of protein in muscle (acts as a coenzyme). It increases production of insulin and estrogen. Reduces the overall recovery time. Lack of this vitamin causes eczema, wrinkles, pigment loss, weakness, irritability, nervousness and depression, senility, rheumatism, inflammation of the joints. Sources: whole grains, rice, wheat germ, molasses, brewer's yeast, kidney, liver.
Vitamin B12 is essential for red blood cell formation and functioning of the central nervous system. Vitamin B12 is essential in the biosynthesis of nucleic acids, formation of organs and genetic information is necessary for the production of dopamine, norepinephrine, serotonin. It is essential for healthy nervous system and mental health. It protects us against multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer's disease. It is also needed for the production of carnitine. Note that alcohol consumer has worse absorption of this vitamin. Vitamin B12 is involved in the production of red blood cells and the proliferation of all cells, their growth and adolescence. It promotes the absorption of iron, as part of certain enzymes, and also participates in the production of proteins in the body. it supports intake of iodine in the thyroid gland and synthesis of DNA and choline. Lack of: anemia, symptoms are white lips, tongue burning, damage to the lining of the stomach. Deficiency can lead to pernicious anemia and bone marrow degeneration. Other symptoms include lack of abnormal gait, chronic fatigue, eye swelling, hallucinations, irritability, constipation, dizziness, drowsiness, enlargement of the liver, degenerative changes of the spine, breathing difficulties, mood swings. Sources: sauerkraut, yeast, liver, soy, cheese, fish, eggs, offal, poultry.
Vitamin B15 activates tissue respiration, oxygen-saving, especially in emergency situations, such as reduced pressure, difficulty breathing, extreme muscular exertion. The positive effects also include increasing the content of glycogen (animal starch) in the liver and muscles. As a lipotropic substance also prevents the deposition of fat in the liver and protects against liver cirrhosis. Like vitamins A, C and E it has the antioxidant properties, helps prevent formation of peroxides, which are the main cause of aging. It is also popular for its positive effect on physical fitness, improved cardiac performance and the whole organism. In addition, it reduces blood cholesterol levels, promotes excretion of toxins from the body, reduces craving for alcohol and drunkeness. Lack of it is reflected in reduced oxygenation of cells leading to fatigue, poor physical condition, premature aging, heart disease, nerve disorders and endocrine disorders. Sources: Brewer's yeast, brown rice, ground corn, pumpkin seeds, sesame.
Vitamin B17 or the glycoside amygdalin, which was separated from apricot pits, this vitamin is increasingly known as a successful (alternative) cure for cancer. Vitamin B17 molecule consists of two glucose molecules, one molecule of cyanide and one molecule of benzaldehyde. Cyanide and benzaldehyde molecules normally act as a very violent poison, but the merger of vitamin B17 is harmless. Cancer cells as their primary source of energy currently use glucose. They contain the enzyme beta-glucosidase, which is released from the amygdalin glucose, but also molecules of cyanide and benzaldehyde. This effectively kills cancer cells. Healthy cells do not contain beta-glucosidase enzyme (or only very small amounts), but on the contrary contain an enzyme rhodenasis that converts vitamin into a harmless substance. Sources: pits of apricots, peaches, almonds, plums. It is this vitamin that gives the pits their bitter taste.
