A good source of vitamin B12 and Folic Acid
Vitamins and minerals are essential as they help to maintain good health by assisting in various bodily functions such as energy production and red blood cell renewal.
Of the 13 vitamins required by the body, vitamin B makes up 8 of the 13. Together, the B vitamins make up a B-complex, where they play essential roles in body function for cell metabolism or as co-factors to essential bodily processes. AussieMite contains 6 of these essential B vitamins.
As for the vitamin B's - they cannot be stored in the body and therefore need to be replaced on a daily basis through the diet. It is for this reason that adequate amounts of vitamin B are consumed on a daily basis as part of a well balanced nutritious diet.
B Vitamins and Iron in AussieMite
Thiamin (Vitamin B1) KEEP CALM
Plays a role in maintaining the nervous system, mental health and general metabolism.
Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) NERVES & HAIR
Is important in energy production, cellular function, growth & development and the nervous system.
Niacin (Vitamin B3) GLOWING SKIN & MOOD
Converts carbohydrates, fat and alcohol into energy, skin health, maintaining metabolic pathways and the production of DNA. Low levels of niacin in the body can result in aggressive behaviour, dementia, insomnia, dermatitis and a general weakness.
Folic acid (Vitamin B9) FATIGUE & PREGNANCY
Folate is as important as iron in red blood cell production but also for DNA synthesis which supports growth and repair of all body cells.
It is essential during the early stages of pregnancy, where there is rapid growth, an increased blood supply and the development of the foetal spinal cord.
Vitamin B12 BLOOD & NERVE MAINTENANCE
Vitamin B12 maintains the protective myelin sheath that surrounds nerve cells, and therefore is important in maintaining mental ability. It also is important in red blood cell formation and the breaking down of carbohydrates, fat and protein to produce energy.
Vitamin B12 is mainly found in food from animal sources and is poorly absorbed in those with gastrointestinal complications such as coeliac disease, chron’s, gastritis and immune system disorders, in addition to those who choose not to consume animal based foods, such as Vegans and Vegetarians.
Vitamin (B6) MOOD & CONCENTRATION
Vitamin B6 has a primary function in brain development and function, metabolism and most importantly in the production of hormones that control our mood.
A low intake of vitamin B6 can lead to depression, nervousness, short term memory loss and difficulty in concentrating.
Iron FATIGUE & IMMUNITY
Iron is an essential mineral that can only be obtained from the diet.
It plays the pivotal role in maintaining blood cells and their ability to carry oxygen around the body, but is also important for optimal immune function, keeping one free of infections.
