5 Little-Known Robbers of B Vitamins...
B vitamins are vitally important to many of your bodily functions, such as energy production, metabolism, mood, hormones, nervous system function and more.
Every cell in your body needs B vitamins every second of the day.
Unfortunately, there are several factors that deplete these critical nutrients...
- Refined sugar and starches demand B vitamins to metabolize and convert into energy.
- Alcohol quickly depletes B vitamin stores in your body.
- Caffeine is a diuretic and causes B vitamins to be flushed out of your body at a faster rate.
- When your body is under stress, it utilizes B vitamins to cope and rapidly depletes these nutrients.
- Certain medications can leach onto B vitamins in your body and interfere with proper utilization. (1)
So, be sure you are eating a diet rich in B vitamins (meat, leafy greens, eggs, yogurt and avocado are great sources), or simply add a B complex supplement to your daily regimen.
Not all B vitamin supplements are created equal. Here's 2 things you need to look for when shopping for the best B vitamin supplement:
- Look for the "active" forms of B vitamins so your body does not have to convert them in your liver. Most B vitamin supplements use the cheap, inactive forms and are poorly absorbed and utilized.
- Best absorbed if taken in a sustained release form so your body has a constant stream of B vitamins throughout the day.
That's why we developed Jigsaw Activated B w/SRT®, so you can easily get all the active B vitamins combined with our proprietary Sustained Release Technology (w/SRT).
