VITAMIN B COMPLEX
The five B vitamins in Petite-Appetite are all water-soluble. Because the body cannot store these vitamins, you must make sure you consume a sufficient dose every day. Vitamin B was once thought to be a single nutrient until Scientists identified various B vitamins in the early 1900s. Despite the belief among non-scientists, there is no special relationship between each of the vitamins in this group. Each of the five B vitamins in Petite-Appetite has a unique structure and function in the body.
Each of these B vitamins has a unique structure and performs unique functions in the human body, as follows:
in fats, proteins and carbohydrates, allowing your body to burn them.
This facilitates weight loss. Thiamine also supports metabolism, digestion and
riboflavin helps break down food into energy. It is also an important
antioxidant fighting against the damage done to the body by free
radicals. Riboflavin is needed to transform B6 into forms that can be
used to build tissue and red blood cells.
more than 60 different metabolic processes in the body. It is necessary for
cellular respiration, the production of steroid hormones in the adrenal glands,
and for proper enzyme function. Like many others in this group of five, niacin
helps the body to efficiently metabolize carbohydrates - the primary nutrient
used for energy.
Journal published findings of a study that suggested that pantothenic acid was
beneficial in the prevention of ketosis. During ketosis, the body burns ketones
stored in fat, rather than glucose. Ketones are made up of acetone,
acetoacetate or beta-hydroxybutyrate, which can all be toxic at high
levels. The blood becomes acid, damaging kidneys, liver and other
organs. B5 can prevent ketosis, decrease hunger and improve
fatigue. It also mitigates the effects of stress on the body.
and has been used to treat more than 100 health conditions, including heart
disease, depression, memory loss and kidney stones. It is also needed to
breakdown proteins, fats and sugars into energy, which is readily available for
use by the body. Without proper levels of B6, the energy from our food is
stored in fat cells.
The B1, B2, B3, B5 and B6 used in Petite-Appetite allows for optimum energy production, resulting in sustained weight loss.
