Mojoba7 and Vitamin B Complex

Connection between Vitamin B and Weight Loss

Good nutrition is important for any weight management programme, it helps optimize the body's energy system to work efficiently. As the body burns fat or carbohydrates the cells require essential nutrients to complete the chemical process. An imbalance in the nutritional state very often affects energy levels. Many of the B vitamins are required for the process of energy metabolism. If a reduced calorie diet does not provide enough B vitamins the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates may be affected and result in a feeling of lethargy.
The human body requires 13 vitamins, and 8 of these essential vitamins are from the B-complex group. B-complex vitamins are absolutely essential for necessary metabolic processes such as red blood cell synthesis and the production of energy.

All B-complex vitamins are water soluble. They provide energy from using carbohydrates and converting them to glucose. B-complex vitamins are also essential for the metabolism of proteins and fat. B-complex vitamins work together, so it is important to take them all at the same time. Vitamin B and weight loss go hand in hand, but only when all forms are taken together.

Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) helps the body cells change carbohydrates into energy.
Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) is required for a wide variety of cellular processes. Like the other B vitamins, it plays a key role in energy metabolism, and for the metabolism of fats, ketone bodies, carbohydrates, and proteins.

Like B2, Vitamin B3 is essential for normal thyroid hormone production. Vitamin B3 is also part of the glucose tolerance factor (GTF) which is released every time blood sugar rises.

Vitamin B6 plays an integral role in the metabolism of fats, particularly fatty acids which are unsaturated.

Choline and Inositol are members of the Vitamin B Complex, it is made in the liver. Choline is needed for efficient fat metabolism. Choline deficiency leads to fats becoming trapped in the liver, inhibits the utilisation of cholesterol in the tissure and the burning of fats to produce energy. Like choline, inositol is a member of the vitamin B complex and is also manufactured inside the body. Inositol combines with choline to assist in fat metabolism.
