Have you ever heard the way of saying “union is strength”?
This is the case for B vitamins B1, B6 and B12 that work together and help us to keep our nervous system healthy.
The history of B vitamins dates back in time: when they were first discovered, at the beginning of the 1900’s they were thought to be similar and to have a “factor B” in common. It turned out later that they are were quite different from each other and each B vitamin had its own structure.
Each of the B vitamins has its own set of effects on the human body. The neurotropic B vitamins B1, B6 and B12 play an important role in the metabolism of the nervous system in which they are connected to each other.
B vitamins act together in keeping our nervous system healthy and support the production of neurotransmitters, the signaling molecules like dopamine and serotonin. They help the body make new cells and they also are important in the metabolism: they help our bodies to release energy from our food and also supply the most needed energy to our nerve cells. Vitamin B1, B6 and B12 together form a team that supports our nervous system. It is important to keep it running like a well-oiled machine so don’t forget to provide your body with a right amount of B vitamins!
