1. What are the properties and benefits of B vitamins ?
The term "vitamins" is derived from the term "amines of life" because of the metabolic importance of these molecules to the body. There are eight B vitamins, which make up the majority of the water-soluble vitamins, which, together with ascorbic acid (vitamin C), total nine vitamins.
B vitamins are a group of vitamins that are essential for a correct diet and their properties are very useful in avoiding health problems. Among other things, B vitamins are essential for the normal functioning of the liver and nervous system, but they are especially important for the conversion of carbohydrates into glucose and for the metabolism of fats and proteins. Let's find out about the properties of the B vitamins: in this article we will get to know the vitamins B1 to B12, starting with the symptoms that a deficiency can cause in the body.
2. What are B vitamins ?
B vitamins are many and varied: find out what they do, what foods and supplements they are found in and how to take them.
One of the common characteristics of almost all B vitamins (as well as vitamin C) is their thermolability; with the exception of vitamins B2, B6 and (partially) B12, ALL others are heat sensitive. This means that cooking food reduces the overall vitamin content to a greater or lesser extent depending on the case.
Unfortunately, temperature is not the only variable that affects the presence or absence of B vitamins in foods; some of them are also photosensitive (vitamins B2, B6 and B8), so their presence in foods depends on their exposure to light and the length of time and/or method of storage. In addition, vitamin B1 or thiamine is particularly affected by some food preservatives, making canned foods even more vitamin-depleted.
As if that were not enough, B vitamins must compete with or be affected by other anti-nutritional molecules called ANTIVITAMINS; these active ingredients reduce the bioavailability of B vitamins and interfere with their use by the human body. These include oxythiamine, juritiamine, thiaminase, antimalarial drugs, contraceptive drugs and anticonvulsants.
3. Vitamin B1: against fatigue
No appetite and tired all the time? You need vitamin B1 (thiamine or aneurine).
If you often feel tired, suffer from muscle pain, have difficulty breathing or have a poor appetite, you probably need vitamin B1. It is found in brewer's yeast, wheat germ oil, pollen and royal jelly, soya, wholegrain cereals, spirulina algae, hazelnuts, almonds, walnuts, sunflower vegetables and molasses.
How to take vitamin B1 ?
If you want to increase your B vitamins, eat 5 nuts a day, drink a teaspoon of wheat germ oil in the morning and eat cornflakes for breakfast. Remember that vitamin B1 is depleted by alcohol, smoking and the consumption of sweets and sugar. The heat of cooking and eating raw seafood and nuts at the same time also negate the benefits of vitamin B1.
4. Vitamin B2: against inflammation and itching
Are you bothered by burning and itching? You need vitamin B2 (riboflavin).
If you often have mouth ulcers, stomatitis and lesions on your lips and in your oral cavity, if you suffer from burns and inflammation or if you are particularly bothered by sunlight and feel as if you have sand in your eyes, fill up on vitamin B2. It is found in brewer's yeast, egg yolk, wheat germ oil and oil seeds, cabbage, peas and yoghurt.

Eat a salad of cabbage cut into strips and seasoned with a teaspoon of wheat germ oil and apple cider vinegar every day. Remember that if you expose foods containing vitamin B2 to sunlight, their concentration is reduced.

6. Vitamin B4: for the immune system
Are your immune systems weakening? You need vitamin B4
If you get sick more often than usual, if your blood tests show a low white blood cell count, or if you suffer from neuritis or polyneuritis, it may be a problem of vitamin B4 deficiency. It is found in brewer's yeast, rice and beetroot extracts, potatoes, tomatoes and whole milk.

9. Vitamin B7: for the liver and kidneys
Liver and blood pressure? You need vitamin B7
If you have high blood pressure, kidney dysfunction or if your high-fat diet and stress have caused an enlarged liver and statosis (fatty liver syndrome), vitamin B7 can help. It is found in wheat germ, brewer's yeast, molasses, offal and cabbage in general.

Anemia, or a pale complexion, occurs when the body has a deficiency of vitamin B12. The bone marrow uses this vitamin to produce red blood cells.
How to take vitamin B12 ?
The body only needs small amounts of this vitamin. Foods with a higher concentration are milk, eggs and beef.
15. Vitamin B deficiency
Fatigue, weakness and tiredness are just some of the symptoms resulting from B deficiency. The intake of these vitamins from the diet is not always sufficient to cover their needs. For example, the diet may contain no animal foods or insufficient amounts of animal foods, such as a vegetarian or vegan diet. The causes of deficiency may therefore be different.
In case of illness, caused for example by fever and flu, it may be necessary to take antibiotics. Some of the B vitamins are produced by intestinal bacteria, which are reduced during antibiotic treatment. For this reason and to regain energy during and after antibiotic treatment, it can be useful to incorporate B vitamins. Helping to regain strength and energy can therefore be essential during crises.
A period of intense study, work or sport can lead to fatigue, irritability and exhaustion. B vitamins are necessary in such cases to support the proper functioning of the nervous system and psychological functions. They also reduce fatigue and weariness.
These vitamins help to strengthen the nerves and improve the transmission of nerve impulses. The intake of B vitamins can be essential even if you often have cuts in the mouth or tongue or if you suffer from mouth ulcers. In these cases, vitamins are used to keep the membranes and mucous membranes intact and the skin normal.
In all these cases of deficiency, it may be useful to resort to a vitamin B supplement.
