Vitamin B

B vitamins are of fundamental importance in the functioning of our body.


They allow the assimilation of proteins, carbohydrates and lipids; they are used for the production of energy and the synthesis of neurotransmitters. This has an impact on our ability to concentrate, memorise, react to stress, regulate our mood, our appetite and even our libido!


They also play a role in our immunity (especially vitamin B6).


As a general rule, a diversified diet allows us to have a sufficient supply of B vitamins, but certain disorders that interfere with their assimilation may require supplements.


This may be the case with problems of intestinal permeability and alcoholism, for example.


Caffeine, tobacco, sugar, antibiotics and the contraceptive pill also interfere with the absorption of B vitamins.


So it's up to you!


And to start with, here are the foods that contain them:


Plant sources:

  • Nutritional yeast
  • Wholegrain cereals
  •  Wheat germ and corn
  •  Wheat bran and rice
  •  Dried vegetables
  •  Peanuts
  •  Oilseeds
  •  Green vegetables
  •  Soya
  •  Avocado
  •  Dairy

Animal sources:

  • Pork
  • Liver
  •  Fish
  •  Eggs
  •  Seafood

Also think about royal jelly, which contains all the B vitamins, especially B1 and B5! Be careful where it comes from, however, as most of what you find on the internet comes from China. Of course, it's not expensive, but you should know that the traceability of its production remains very unclear (use of antibiotics, freezing, artificial food, etc.) and its quality leaves much to be desired.
