The benefits of vitamins are not news, but we need them as surely as we need air to breath and water to drink. Make no mistake; a good supplement regimen starts with adequate vitamin intake. B Vitamins are essential for maintaining healthy nerves, skin, hair, eyes, liver and mouth and also good for muscle tone in the gastrointestinal tract. They give us energy and are necessary to metabolize carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Because B vitamins are water soluble, our bodies naturally flush them away everyday. Physical and emotional stress, alcohol, dieting and our typical “on-the-go” lifestyles also increase their loss. That is why it is so important to replenish them daily.
