Overview:

B vitamins have a vast range of biochemical actions throughout the human body and play a role in nearly every cellular metabolic reaction. B vitamins are essential for energy production, carbohydrate metabolism, cellular respiration, DNA synthesis, neurotransmission, cognitive function, hormonal regulation, and just about any other physiological process you can think of.


Longitudinal data indicates that having a deficiency in B vitamins (particularly B12 and folate) can rapidly accelerate neurodegenerative processes and increase the risk of cognitive dysfunction. In fact, recent clinical research demonstrated that supplementing with a B vitamin complex (including vitamin B12 and folic acid) was efficacious for cognitive enhancement and blocking neurodegenerative processes. 

 

Since many people skimp on their fruit and vegetable consumption, supplementing with Best Mood is a practical and smart way to maintain healthy B vitamin intake (remember though, eating a micronutrient-rich diet is always a good idea).
