Dr. Gundry has chosen to specifically focus on vitamin B in the vitamin blend of his Vital Reds supplement. In fact — Vital Reds contains 8 different forms of vitamin B. Clearly, Dr. Gundry believes that vitamin B — in all its forms — is essential for optimum health. And in fact, the vitamin B family is responsible for an incredibly diverse array of functions in your body. For a little more clarity on what each form of vitamin B included in Vital Reds does — keep reading.
Thiamin: Thiamin is also known as vitamin B1 and it helps your cells transform the carbohydrates you get from food into energy for your body. This energy is especially important for your brain and nervous system.
Research is beginning to show that thiamin can help support the health of your heart, maintain healthy blood sugar levels, and boost cognitive function. Without enough thiamin, you might experience confusion, weakness, and problems with memory.
Riboflavin: Also known as vitamin B2, riboflavin helps your body absorb iron. Riboflavin also helps maintain healthy blood pressure and blood sugar levels. A deficiency in riboflavin is associated with intestinal problems, cognitive issues, and skin disorders.
Niacin: Niacin also goes by the names “nicotinic acid” and “vitamin B3”. Niacin is of utmost importance when it comes to cardiovascular health. Niacin supplementation has been associated with improvement in cholesterol levels, as well as the health of the arteries.
Vitamin B6: Vitamin B6 participates in over 100 biochemical reactions in the body. This multi-tasking vitamin is necessary to the metabolism of sugars, fats, and amino acids. It also helps produce neurotransmitters, so your brain can communicate with your body effectively. A deficiency in vitamin B6 has been associated with cognitive dysfunction, cardiovascular problems, and other serious health issues.
Folate: Folate is involved in many reactions within your body’s cells. Without enough folate, you may experience problems with mood or reduced levels of iron in the body.
Vitamin B12: Also known as cobalamin, vitamin B12 helps synthesize DNA — which is basically your body’s “instruction manual”. Vitamin B12 is also essential for the health of the mitochondria, which is responsible for producing cell energy.
Older people and women of childbearing age are especially prone to vitamin B12 deficiency. And it’s important to keep vitamin B12 levels up — as deficits are associated with a decline in bone and cardiovascular health, as well as cognitive problems.
Biotin: You may be familiar with biotin as a supplement meant to promote healthy hair growth, but it also has some internal benefits as well. Studies have shown that biotin can help maintain blood sugar and blood lipid levels.
Pantothenic Acid: Pantothenic acid assists in fatty acid metabolism and is essential to almost all forms of life. A diet devoid of pantothenic acid can result in irritability, fatigue, sleep issues, gastrointestinal malfunction, muscle cramps, and sugar sensitivity.
