US RDA Daily Values 1.5 milligrams (mg)

Additional Info:: The body goes through an amazingly complex series of reactions to turn the food an individual eats into energy. All of the B vitamins are involved in each of these steps, but thiamin is of particular interest. Thiamin plays a critical role in the conversion of blood sugar, glucose, into biological energy. One step in the process needs an enzyme called thiamin pyrophosphate (TPP) to work. Without thiamin, the body cannot make various enzymes essential for energy production and the whole process comes to a halt.

Thiamin is also required for proper brain and nervous system functioning. Thiamin is connected with the brain’s ability to use glucose as an energy source and to maintain normal mental functioning. It is also needed to produce and use the vital neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Thiamin is also involved in key metabolic reactions in nervous tissue, the heart, the formation of red blood cells, and the maintenance of smooth and skeletal muscle. Thiamin helps keep your heart muscles elastic and working smoothly, which helps your heart pump strongly and evenly. In fact, thiamin is so essential for our bodies that lack of thiamin in intravenous nutrition formulations can lead to life-threatening situations.

US RDA - Daily Values 1.7 milligrams (mg)
Best food sources - Cereals, yeast, milk, eggs, leafy green vegetables

Additional Info:: Riboflavin is essential for proper body functioning, especially as it relates to energy production. It provides energy at the most basic level: inside the body’s cells. Riboflavin is needed to make two enzymes that are absolutely critical for releasing energy from the fats, carbohydrates, and proteins consumed.
Riboflavin and its derivatives are also involved in cell growth and reproduction. It helps the body make new red blood cells, which are necessary for carrying oxygen so people can breathe. It also helps the immune system by keeping healthy mucous membranes that line your digestive and respiratory systems.
Riboflavin is involved with an enzyme called glutathione reductase, which helps the body maintain a major protector against free radicals. Because of this, emerging evidence indicates that riboflavin can act as an antioxidant in the body, potentially helping the immune system and promoting healthy cholesterol by helping to quench free radicals in the body.Riboflavin assists in a number of vital chemical processes in the body. For example, folate and vitamin B6 require riboflavin to undergo the chemical changes that make them useful. Amino acids are also transformed by riboflavin and its derivatives into what are called neurotransmitters, chemicals essential for memory and thinking.


NIACIN

US RDA
- Daily Values 20 milligrams (mg)
Best food sources - Cereals, yeast, lean meat, liver, eggs

Additional Info:: More than 50 body processes, from releasing energy from food to making hormones and detoxifying chemicals, all depend on niacin. As with many of the other B vitamins, niacin is also involved in energy production and a whole host of other chemical reactions through its derivatives. The normal physiologic role of niacin is as a component of enzymes that are involved in the oxidation-reduction reactions needed for respiration in tissues.
Nicotinic acid (vitamin B3) is rapidly becoming one of the substances of choice for promoting healthy levels of cholesterol. Vitamin B3 has been conclusively found to promote a healthy balance of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) (unhealthy cholesterol) and high-density lipoprotein (HDL) (healthy cholesterol).Niacin may also promote the health of airway systems and joints in the body. This is most likely because of niacin’s ability to help prevent histamine release, a biochemical normally released in the body during allergic reactions. Due to this fact, niacin has also been suggested by some studies to promote normal range of motion and promote joint health. Another novel use of niacin has been to counter occasional sleeplessness. It has proven to be a sleep enhancer. The nutrient activates certain receptors in the brain that affect sleep.


PANTOTHENIC ACID

Causes of Depletion - Insecticidal fumigants, alcohol, coffee, cooking heat, sulfa drugs, estrogen, stress and sleeping pills.
US RDA - Daily Values 10 milligrams.(mg)
Best food sources - Most plant and animal foods

Additional Info:: Traditionally, pantothenic acid has been overlooked since usually an ample supply is found in a well-balanced diet. However, recent findings have suggested supplementation with this vitamin to be very beneficial, especially when taken in conjunction with the other B vitamins. It is important to keep in mind that all the B vitamins work best when taken together. In combination, they create a synergism for maximum benefit to the body. They are much more powerful when taken together than when alone. The key to vitamin B5 is timing its intake into the body with the other B vitamins, which is difficult to do in a regular diet.
Pantothenic acid is a component of the vitamin B-complex that plays a number of vital metabolic roles in the body. Included in these functions are aiding in the production of energy and also adrenal gland hormones. Because of its relationship to these activities, it has become increasingly popular in regard to energy and athletic performance. Pantothenic acid may also promote joint and skin health. Further, it may also play a role in the normal functioning of the immune system. There have been findings of reduced immunity to certain infectious agents when a vitamin B5 deficiency occurs.
