NUTRITION WHY’S #31 : WHY B VITAMINS ? Without B vitamins your body would not be able to use carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Special proteins called enzymes carry out the key chemistry that turns nutrients from your foods like glucose, fatty acids, and amino acids into energy in all the cells of your body. They work by binding to part of the enzyme turning on its activity. B vitamins, called co-enzymes, act like light switches in your house for these enzymes turning the lights (enzymes) on and off as you move around from room to room (as metabolic pathways get more or less active in response to the nutrients from the foods you eat).The B vitamins are found in the right balance in a Multivitamin and in your Protein-Rich Shake. Just like your shake you need your B vitamins every day, since the vitamins are not stored but excreted in your urine every day. The B vitamins are also important for sports performance and exercise as you burn more calories. The recommended requirement for B vitamins is met by just a few milligrams. Always take B vitamins as a combination called a B complex not as individual B vitamins in large amounts called megadoses since the one vitamin in huge amounts can cause your body to break down other B vitamins. A balanced Multivitamin/Multimineral and your Protein-Rich Shake work together with Balanced Nutrition and a Healthy Active Lifestyle to make sure you are getting the energy you need from the foods you are eating!! #drdavidheber #vitamins #enzymes #metabolism #energy to learn more go to www.drdavidheber.com and www.herbalifenutrition Institute.com
