There's been several studies that demonstrate the positive benefits that B vitamins have on the health of your brain.*
More specifically, here's 4 unique ways B vitamins support a healthy brain...
- Required for the production and function of neurotransmitters in your brain.*
- Protects the coating around your nerve cells called myelin -- without this protection, nerve signals begin to slow, causing motor function issues, cognitive decline, and mood changes.*
- Aids in cell communication. (1)*
- Lowers homocysteine, a damaging amino acid (at higher than normal levels) with a multitude of harmful consequences on brain health (2).*
BUT, not all B vitamins are created equal...
The best quality B vitamin supplements include only the active forms.*
Active, or activated, simply means that each B vitamin is in its bioavailable form.*
Why does this matter?
Inactive forms must be converted (or "methylated") by the liver in order to become active, bioavailable forms that can be absorbed and utilized by your body.*
But because your liver can only convert them so fast, most inactive B vitamins are quickly eliminated from your body before offering much benefit.*
That's not the only problem...
- As you age, your body's ability to convert inactive B vitamins to their active usable form becomes less and less.*
- Some individuals are predisposed and have trouble absorbing B vitamins making it critical to have the active, readily-available form.*
- Stress, medications, caffeine, sugar, and refined carbohydrates deplete B vitamins, increasing your body's requirement.*
That's why Jigsaw Health provides you Jigsaw Activated B w/SRT® -- the conversion is already done for you, so your body gets the B vitamins it needs in the forms you can use instantly.*
