Can't I get enough B-complex through food?
B-vitamins are predominantly found in leafy greens, vegetables and fruits, but can also be obtained from fish and meat, eggs, milk and dairy products. That’s why it’s easy to think we get enough B-complex from nutrition.
Unfortunately, our contemporary diet isn’t as nutritious as we would like to believe. It’s typically high-energy, highly digestible and depleted of micronutrients. Only 14%* of Europeans eat the recommended 5 portions of veggies or fruit a day! This often means we don’t get enough B-vitamins.
Up to 29% of obese patients and 30% of older adults suffer from B1 deficiency.**
1in4 adults suffer from a vitamin B6deficiency**
Over 50% of the population is under risk of lower levels ofbioactive folate
Research findings suggest that a significant part of the population is suffering from a deficiency or marginal deficiency in one or more B-vitamins.
Symptoms of B-complex deficiency
Long-term deficiency in B-vitamins can lead to many health and well-being issues. You may notice:
What causes B-complex deficiency?
The divergence between our evolutionary diet and modern eating habits underlies high levels of vitamin deficiencies in developed societies. Take a look at a few vitamin B deficiency risk factors:
Vegetarian and vegan diets (B12)
Regular alcohol consumption (B1, B3, B6)
Contraceptive medications (B6)
Pre-diabetes and diabetes (B7 – biotin)
Inherited or age-related malabsorption (B2, B6, B12)
Who will benefit the most from Essentials SUPER B-Complex:
Vegans and vegetarians – A daily B-complex supplement can make sure people on a plant-based diet get enough of vitamin B12 and other important nutrients.
Older adults (60+) – Your ability to absorb vitamin B6 and B12 decreases as you age and getting enough vitamins through diet alone becomes even more difficult.
Overweight and obese people – Obese individuals have very high rates of micronutrient deficiencies; up to 11%* of obese individuals are suffering from vitamin B6 deficiency and up to 29%* from vitamin B1 deficiency!
Women taking contraceptive medication – Birth control pills may deplete certain nutrients and increase the risk of vitamin deficiency. Studies** have shown lower B6 levels in women on oral contraceptives.
People under a lot of stress and low on energy – B-complex vitamins can reduce fatigue and contribute to normal mental performance.
