Getting Enough Vitamin B?

Are you feeling more tired than usual? Do you have bouts of lightheadedness? Are you suffering from tingling or numbness in your hands and feet? You may not be getting enough Vitamin B.

B vitamins affect our energy levels, brain function and cell metabolism. They help our body make red blood cells and nerve cells. B vitamins help the body make and repair DNA. They also help prevent infections and aid nervous system function.

There are eight different types of B vitamins. They are thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), pyridoxine (B6), biotin (B7), folate (B9), and cobalamin (B12). Each one plays an essential role in maintaining good health.

B vitamins are water soluble; that means that the body cannot easily store them for long periods of time. This is why it is so important to regularly consume foods that are rich in B vitamins. Because the main foods that provide B vitamins are derived from animals, vegans and vegetarians should be exceptionally vigilant about their intake.

Here are some foods that are a good source of B vitamins:

  • Red Meat
  • Fish and Shellfish
  • Poultry
  • Leafy Greens
  • Whole Grains
  • Eggs, Milk and Cheese
  • Legumes
  • Seeds and Nuts
    It is always best to get vitamins from food sources, yet if you feel that you may not be getting enough, a B Complex supplement may be in order. Getting adequate amounts of B vitamins will put you on the road to better health.

Dr. Young is AMAZING! I can darn near crawl into his office with a thrown out back then with some treatment and manipulation walk out in comfort. I really like the fact he takes his time to explain in detail what the problems are that I am facing and give me the correct recommendations for solving my tweeks and pulled muscles. Highly Recommended

Yelp Review

I am a true testament to the care under Dr. Young. I’ve been going to this facility for about 3 years. The treatment plans have made a huge Improvement in my life. The gut cleanse body detox and essential oils have also made a big impact on my life and my health. I’m truly grateful for not only getting good care but getting educated on the body and the mind. I really appreciate the people at this office.
Sincerely Teresa
