Frequently Asked Questions
Q Why are B vitamins essential?
B-Complex vitamins play many roles in the body. Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) is essential for carbohydrate metabolism. It also works to maintain healthy nerves, improve mood and heart function. Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) is necessary for red blood cell formation and for assisting with fat, protein and carbohydrate metabolism.
B3 (Nicotinamide) helps promote healthy skin and mood and may assist with sleep problems. Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid) works to promote a healthy Central Nervous System, energy production and fight chronic fatigue, migraines, allergies and heartburn. Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) is essential for many enzyme
functions. It plays a major role in forming red blood cells, proteins and neurotransmitters. It can be used to relieve PMS and supports the role of the adrenal glands involved in stress responses. Vitamin B12 (Cyanocobalamin) is essential to prevent pernicious anaemia. Biotin is important for nail and hair health. Folic Acid stabilises homocysteine levels, a risk indicator for heart disease, and is essential during pregnancy to protect against birth defects. Vitamin B6 and Folic Acid are involved in the production of mood enhancing hormones such as serotonin.
Q Who is most at risk of vitamin B deficiency?
Those most at risk of a B vitamin deficiency include those with poor intakes of B vitamins, individuals taking medication that can affect B vitamin status, impaired absorption or individuals requiring a higher intake of B-complex vitamins. Since the B vitamins work together, a deficiency of any one may have broader implications. Poor intake of B vitamins can often be a problem in strict vegetarians and the elderly. People who frequently fast or diet may also benefit from B vitamin supplements. Those experiencing emotional or physical stress, pregnancy, breastfeeding, surgery or injury may have an increased requirement.
Q What is the importance of Magnesium?
Magnesium is the 4th most abundant mineral in the body involved in a wide range of key biological processes including energy production, nerve conduction, muscle activity, immunity and blood vessel tone. Magnesium helps to support the nerves during times of stress, anxiety and nervous or emotional tension. Common symptoms of low magnesium levels include muscle cramps, spasms and weakness, disrupted sleep, eye twitches, sensitivity to loud noises, irritability & mood changes, panic/fright attacks, tension headaches and heart problems.
Q Who may need extra Magnesium?
Magnesium supplementation may be indicated when a specific health condition causes an excessive loss of magnesium or limits magnesium absorption such as coeliac disease or crohn’s disease. Consuming high levels of caffeine, alcohol, sugar, sodium or soft drinks increases the risk of magnesium deficiency. Those suffering
from PMS or prolonged stress, and people on certain medication including diuretics, antibiotics and oral contraceptives can be low in magnesium. Older adults are also at increased risk of magnesium deficiency due to lower dietary intakes compared to younger adults.
Q Why has Black Pepper been included in this formula?
Black Pepper has been cultivated as a spice and medicine since ancient times. It has commonly been used in Ayurvedic medicine to warm the body (circulation stimulant) or assist with digestion in cases of flatulence, bloating, stomach upsets, constipation or lack of appetite. Special extracts of Black Pepper have been clinically researched to show improved absorption of nutrients in the gastrointestinal tract2. The Black Pepper extract used in this formula helps to improve the absorption of the other active ingredients.
