What is metabolism?
Metabolism is the process by which our cells use and store energy. The perks of healthy metabolism are appetite control, healthy weight and effective calorie burning. When your metabolism slows, the result is excess flab around your abdomen.

If your body can’t process the food you eat and turn it into energy, your pancreas produces excess insulin and tells the body to store extra fuel as fat. With time, you can develop insulin resistance which causes weight gain, especially around the abdomen. When you build muscle, you burn more calories. These B vitamins will help you gain a healthy metabolism, and control your blood sugar.

B vitamins boost metabolism and promote weight loss.

The B vitamins are essential for healthy metabolism, and help support physical and mental health. They are necessary to burn carbohydrates, fats and proteins for energy, and to use stored energy. These safe vitamins can give you the boost you need to efficiently lose weight, and feel good.

  • B vitamins are important for weight loss.
  • B vitamins are known for their positive effect on stress, and are often referred to as the ‘stress’ vitamins.

Vitamin B6 is vital to the body’s metabolic processes and is essential:

  • To assist in healthy weight loss and weight management
  • To produce the neurotransmitters serotonin, norepinephrine and melatonin which influence your mood
  • To boost brain performance
  • For utilization of the energy in the foods you eat
  • To produce hemoglobin which is necessary to carry oxygen throughout the body.

Importantly, B6 and B12 are some of the most important B vitamins for their metabolism of protein.
