Helping you B a BetterYou
B-Complete Oral Spray from BetterYou
Nutrient deficiencies can have a significant impact on our wellbeing and insufficient B-vitamin levels can interfere with how energised we feel. All eight B-vitamins have important functions and play a vital role in maintaining optimal health; however, they are water-soluble which means that the body doesn’t store them, so our diet must supply them each day. Thiamine (B1), Riboflavin (B2), Niacin (B3) and Pantothenic Acid (B5) help to break down and release energy from the food that we eat, while keeping the nervous system healthy and Biotin (B7) is needed to help the body break down fat, while also contributing to the maintenance of healthy hair and skin. Folic Acid (B9) and vitamin B6 help the body to form healthy red blood cells, contributing to normal immune system function, while vitamin B12 contributes to healthy red blood cells, a normal homocysteine metabolism and aids energy release. Lucky for us, global health pioneer BetterYou has launched its brand-new B-complete Oral Spray – an expert blend of all eight B-vitamins to support natural energy production.
