Let’s talk a little about nutrition
Sure, a balanced diet filled will tons of good stuff is the key, but in our fast paced world, who has time for all that? It’s so easy to go through the drive thru for dinner, order pizza, or go out to your favorite restaurant. While I’m not opposed to eating out entirely, the truth is most americans do eat out daily. These food chains are not worried about you getting the right amount of vitamins and nutrients in your 3 meals a day! -Insert Supplements!
The B vitamins are essential to a dynamic and energetic long life, on the contrary, you can get serious health problems if you lack them. B vitamins are easily lost from the body, and people on diets, alcoholics or those who take antibiotics or seizure drugs are even more prone to having vitamin B deficiency. The typical American diet high in processed, cooked and microwavable food gives us only a segment of the B-vitamins we need for good health. This is where a good B-Complex comes in!
Meet Young Living Super B Tablets!
Super B™ is a comprehensive vitamin complex containing eight essential and energy-boosting B vitamins: B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, and B12. The complete B-vitamin profile in Super B not only assists in maintaining healthy energy levels, but it also supports the nervous system, aids in maintaining normal cardiovascular function, and helps with internal enzyme reactions.* With the new addition of B5, Super B now also assists with mood support. Because deficiencies usually include more than one B-vitamin, and because the B-vitamins work best as a team, you should take a B-complex supplement along with any single B-vitamin in order to achieve their synergistic effects.
It is important to acquire all eight B vitamins because they work together as a team. This is what keep your body functioning normally and provide you with the energy you need to conduct your daily activities.
Here is more information about the 8 B’s:
B1-Thiamin: Thiamin is necessary for adrenal gland function, proper immune performance and the synthesis of neurotransmitters. It also plays a role in the metabolism of food and alcohol. The RDA for thiamin is very low and does not consider increased thiamin requirements that result from an unhealthy lifestyle, old age or disease. For more information on Thiamin Click Here!
B2-Ribofiavin: Riboflavin is required for energy production and oxygen utilization. For more information on Riboflavin Click Here!

B5-Pantothenic Acid: is obligatory for energy production. It is also required for proper immune function and adrenal stress hormone production. It is sometimes referred to as the “anti-stress” vitamin. For more information on Pantothenic Acid Click Here!
B6-Pyridoxine and B9- Folic Acid: work together to regulate the levels of homocysteine, a byproduct of protein breakdown that damages arteries and makes them prone to cholesterol deposits. For more info on B6 Click Here!
Folic acid is especially important for women of childbearing age, as deficiencies of this nutrient have been linked with birth defects. Women on birth control pills, pregnant women, all women of childbearing age, as well as alcoholics, heart disease patients and people taking antibiotics should make sure they take between 400-800 mcg of folic acid per day.
