Vitamin B Complex supports healthy nervous system function and strengthens the body to help during periods of stress and anxiety. Vitamin B complex contains eight B vitamins as well as a couple of other related substances. The eight vitamins are thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pyridoxine (B6), cyanocobalamin (B12), folic acid, calcium pantothenate and biotin. The other related substances that can also be in the B complex vitamin include choline bitartrate, inositol and vitamins C and E. I must say here that I am a great fan of inositol for anxiety relief as I know it works for me.
Every part of this complex vitamin has it’s own exclusive purpose but it is when they work together as the Vitamin B Complex that it offers important maintenance for the body to remain healthy. The B vitamin complex contains B vitamins which are water-soluble and it is important that enough of these vitamins are consumed on a daily basis. The body cannot store water soluble vitamins such as this one and this leads to a frequent intake being required.
The B complex vitamins are extremely beneficial for a number of conditions and may be necessary in extra amounts at certain times in a persons life. Many individuals suffer from anxiety and stress at one time or another and research has found that the B complex vitamin can be advantageous in helping alleviate the symptoms. If a person has been unwell the B complex vitamin can also be very valuable in aiding the recovery process and can help ease general tiredness and sluggishness.
There are a number of herbs that can be combined with Vitamin B Complex for anxiety relief. These include Valarian Root, Passion Flower and St Johns Wort which all help with relaxation which can reduce stress levels.
