Stress B Complex Vitamin Benefits
Stress affects most people in some way. Acute (sudden, short-term) stress leads to rapid changes throughout the body. Almost all body systems (the heart and blood vessels, immune system, lungs, digestive system, sensory organs, and brain) gear up to meet perceived danger. These stress responses could prove beneficial in a critical, life-or-death situation. Over time, however, repeated stressful situations put a strain on the body that may contribute to physical and psychological problems. Chronic (long-term) stress can have real health consequences and should be addressed like any other health concern. Fortunately, research is showing that lifestyle changes and stress-reduction techniques can help people learn ...Read more

Vit. B: B-co. Should be same.Get a more detailed answer ›
Not likely unless...: Unless you're truly deficient, it's not likely that you'll find much benefit from b complex vitamins. Sure we look for B12 & folate (folic acid) deficiency in alzheimer's dementia, but I have yet to correct someone's levels & return their thinking process. If you drink alcohol to excess & forgo proper balanced nutrition, you can run low on b vitamins for which extra might be useful but this is pretty rare. ...Read more
Depends: Different items work for different people, but many patients report a better sense of well being with a b complex vitamin, and with significant vitamin d. Depending on your latitude and sun exposure, you may or may not get enough vitamin d from sun. You could consider trying 3, 000 iu of vitamin d. Also there is some evidence to suggest that methyl folate also helps improve a person's mood. ...Read more
Is it essential to take a multi vitamin? I'm currently taking vit d3, magesium & executive b stress formula
Absolutelynot: The majority of studies show no. Enefits from taking multivitamins unless you are deficient! in which case you should first turn to food sources to address the deficiency. Don't buy into the hype about the value of these pills. There is little to no value, and potential harm in taking them. You definitely don't need them at your age and you are probably duplicating between the products you alread. ...Read more
R u zinc deficient?: Often if someone is supplementing with zinc, they need to see what their copper levels are too, since copper is supplemented at 1/10 the dose of zinc, and often what you find in your multivitamin can be sufficient. That goes along with B vitamins. So, there shouldn't be a problem if taking them together too. Have a SpectraCell micronutrient panel done to see if you need all that zinc first. ...Read more

However, a few individuals experience GI upset when taking too many pills at the same time.

Yes, in fact wise: No prenatal vitamin has adequate levels of vitamin d. Adults in the winter months need to take 5-8000 iu of vit d3/day to achieve optimal levels. Additional b complex is perfectly safe as long as total b6 does not exceed 200 mg (highly unlikely). Prenatal vitamins do not contain essential omega 3 fatty acids, important not only for your health but the health of your baby if you become pregnant. ...Read more

Methylation: Consider getting tested for mthfr and possibly comt. These are methylation genes. Methylation is involved in making and breaking down neurotransmitters.

See below: The appropriate dose of biotin depends on several factors such as the user’s age, health, and several other conditions. At this time there is not enough scientific information to determine an appropriate range of doses for biotin. Keep in mind that natural products are not always necessarily safe and dosages can be important. Be sure to follow relevant directions on product labels and consult your pharmacist or physician or other healthcare professional before using. There is no recommended dietary allowance (RDA) established for biotin. The adequate intakes (AI) for biotin are 7 mcg for infants 0-12 months, 8 mcg for children 1-3 years, 12 mcg for children 4-8 years, 20 mcg for children 9-13 years, 25 mcg for adolescents 14-18 years, 30 mcg for adults over 18 years and pregnant women, and 35 mcg for breast-feeding women. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Not much: Very few. Unsaturated plant fats may help increase HDL a little, as will small amounts of alcohol. Vitamin d is made in your skin in response to light exposure. It is found in many foods, such as dairy products, but most are supplemented. Vitamin B12 is in most animal derived products, but is hard to be deficient in unless you have chronic stomach or intestinal problems or prior GI surgery. ...Read more
