Vitamin B deficiency - often underestimated

April 29, 2021
Dr. Dorothee Bös et al.

Do you sometimes also suffer from general symptoms such as irritability, fatigue, insomnia, headaches, oily or rough skin, hair loss, loss of appetite? Then it may be related to a vitamin B deficiency.

Symptoms of chronic vitamin B deficiency

An insufficient supply of B vitamins can result in many different symptoms. Long-term vitamin B deficiency can then lead to cracks at the corners of the mouth, wound healing disorders, insensitivity, eye fatigue, muscle weakness, cramps, increased tendencies to infection, mucosal inflammation, increased homocysteine levels and enlarged red blood cells.

Also in cases of depression, migraine, polyneuropathy, eye lens clouding, poor concentration, megaloblastic anemia, burning-feet syndrome, tinnitus, premenstrual syndrome, neurodermatitis, arteriosclerosis, etc., the additional intake of B vitamins has proven effective.

What does our body need B vitamins for?

The B vitamins are involved in carbohydrate, protein and fat metabolism. A deficiency in one or more of these building blocks has a variety of effects on our health. An undersupply is particularly noticeable in areas that are subject to increased cell division. These include hair, nails, blood formation, regions with increased energy requirements (such as the brain) or systems that rely on neurotransmitters (such as the nervous system).

They are also essential for maintaining the myelin layer (protection of the nerves). B vitamins are involved in over 100 enzyme functions as well as in the maintenance of our genetic material. They support detoxification and the conversion of carotene into vitamin A.

Vitamin B intake

Through diet, our body often receives too little vitamin B, because the vitamins are partly destroyed by cooking or poorly absorbed. The absorption of vitamin B is influenced by disorders in the gastrointestinal tract, the use of contraceptives, painkillers, psychotropic drugs and other medications, high consumption of carbohydrates/sugar, black tea or coffee, unbalanced diet and stress.

An increased need or deficiency is found particularly often in adolescents, older persons, pregnant women, athletes, diabetics or smokers.

Natural vitamin B preparations

It is important for the absorption of the B vitamins that they are present in natural form and that a healthy intestinal environment is present. The B vitamins are predominantly broken down and absorbed in conjunction with the healthy, probiotic intestinal bacteria.

The combination of natural B vitamins from quinoa seedlings with the Pleurotus mushroom has proven to be effective. The vital mushroom contains B vitamins, promotes optimal absorption from the intestine and supports healthy intestinal flora – which then, for example, forms biotin (B7) again or enables the absorption of cyanocobalamin (B12) in the first place.
