The truth about vitamin B deficiency

Vitamin B-100

Some general health updates concerning yours truly.

In early 2015 I decided to drop weight, did so over the course of a few months, kept it off and have been slim ever since.

A problem that happened with my changed diet was a vitamin B deficiency. I don't eat meat or dairy that often. Hardly at all, actually. And when you don't eat those things, the body misses out on several of the major B vitamins.

What happens if you don't get enough B? Sluggishness, irritability, skin issues (dry cracking at the corners of the mouth is a telltale sign you're B deficient) and difficulty concentrating among other things.

I treated my B deficiency the same way vegetarians and vegans do by taking a B-Complex vitamin supplement. (A common issue with a vegetarian diet is B deficiency.)

Did it work? Sort of. B-Complex usually contains C, Thiamin (B1), Riboflavin (B2), Niacin (B3), Pantothenic Acid (B5), B6, Biotin (B7), Folic Acid (B9) and B12. You get all the major B vitamins, but my issue was that B-Complex didn't provide enough for my system. I needed more.

Yes, it is true you can get all the B you need just from eating certain foods, but I'm a little different. More on that in a moment.

Enter the B-100 supplement

A B-100 supplement has pretty much everything B-Complex has, except a lot more of it. You get the same B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9 and B12 but in a much higher amount.

Where I noticed the biggest difference between B-Complex and B-100 is with skin healing. If for example I got a little cut on my arm from doing yard work outside, on B-Complex the cut would take about 4 days to completely heal where you wouldn't see it anymore. On B-100 it's less than 2 days. Yes, it's that big of a difference, at least with the way my system works.

B-100 is the better choice due to my diet

Aside from better skin healing, B-100 is the better B for me to take for another reason. I eat a lot less than I used to.

I don't crave filth anymore and don't feel the need to stuff myself sick to feel full, therefore I eat much smaller meals these days. That's all well and good, but since I hardly eat meat or dairy, I supplement my B. However, B-Complex doesn't supplement my system enough and that's why B-100 is right for me.

Do I recommend B-100?

I recommend it to those who are vegetarian, vegan or generally have a meatless and/or dairy-free diet, especially if you're over 40 (I'm 42 at the time I write this).

If on the other hand you normally eat meat and dairy with most meals, a regular B-Complex would be the better choice, and only if you feel you need it.
