B vitamins play an essential role in the metabolism of foods and converting them into energy. They are also needed for healthy hair, skin, eyes, liver and to feed the nervous system. During periods of stress our bodies demand for B vitamins increases. A lack of these water soluble vitamins could result in low energy levels, fatigue and nutritional deficiencies. Water soluble means that the body cannot store these vitamins so we have to ensure adequate intake daily to prevent nutritional deficiency. The human body needs vitamin B12, also known as cobalamin, to make red blood cells, nerves and DNA, the genetic material in all cells. A deficiency in this vitamin or folic acid can cause a type of anaemia. In this type of anaemia the body is unable to produce enough healthy red blood cells, this means the body is unable to provide enough oxygenated blood to all the tissues, resulting in anaemia like conditions such as fatigue and lethargy. It is important that our bodies get enough Folic Acid alongside an adequate intake of B12. Neulife Vitamin B12 and Folic Acid help control levels of homocysteine in the blood. Homocysteine is an amino acid that may be associated with heart disease. The body needs B6 in order to absorb B12 and to make red blood cells. For this reason it is important to take a vitamin B complex alongside any individual B vitamin.
