The B vitamins help give us the energy to function. They are known as the "catalytic spark plugs" of the body; they catalyze many biochemical reactions because of their role as coenzymes. They provide energy by converting carbohydrates into glucose, and they are vital in the metabolism of fats and proteins. They all work synergistically, and are essential cofactors for the reactions which make ATP, which is needed as fuel to drive biochemical reactions. If we run into a deficit of ATP, there is no fuel for simple reactions like muscle contraction and motor activity (walking, running, etc.), and since the brain needs ATP for reactions, a deficit will also cause cognitive and mental acuity problems. The B vitamins are water-soluble (easily eliminated from the body) and must be constantly replenished. Certain B vitamins can be made in the body by bacteria in the large intestine. A refined diet high in sugar, coffee, alcohol and refined flour can deplete the B vitamins, and long-term antibiotic therapy can reduce the population of beneficial bacteria that normally makes B vitamins in the large intestine. Clinical applications include fatigue, depression, stress, glucose control, skin/hair/eyes/ and mouth problems, anxiety, insomnia, hyperactivity, PMS, menopausal symptoms, alcohol withdrawal, and long-term antibiotic application.
