Getting Energy From Vitamins

The purpose of dental practice marketing is not only to achieve a successful practice, but to deliver a healthier lifestyle to patients. Dentists are also concerned with a your general health and this article will be an overview of the importance of vitamins.

People think that just taking a bunch of vitamins is sufficient to increase energy levels, but there is more to it than that.

If the body lacks in certain vitamins and minerals it can have a huge effect on your body’s general ability to function properly.

The following vitamins are essential: B1, B2, B3, B6, B9, B12, B50 and biotin.

Here are some examples:

  • The decrease of thiamine will lead to weakness, loss of appetite or even general unhappiness.
  • Cobalamin is needed for the production of red blood cells, and for the proper digestion of foods, the synthesis of proteins, and the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats. A lack of this vitamin can have various knock-on adverse effects on energy levels. It has been found that even in the absence of clinical deficiency, injections of vitamin B12 can increase energy levels. People most likely at risk of vitamin B12 are vegetarians and those with digestive problems.
  • Folic acid, or vitamin B9 is required for production of red blood cells and a severe deficiency can lead to a condition called megaloblastic anaemia where the red blood corpuscles are enlarged and not able to function properly. At lesser degrees of deficiency there can be symptoms of fatigue, digestive disturbances, memory problems, weakness, and shortness of breath. Our city dentist points out that a common symptom is that of a sore tongue, and this can sometimes be picked up during a dental examination. Testing for folate levels can be done with a blood test, and it is important to check vitamin B12 levels too.

The many reactions in the body involving vitamins are complex and interdependent, some assisting the action of others and other nutrients. For example, vitamin C assists the absorption of iron, whilst B vitamins assist one another, and niacin plus vitamin B6 help with magnesium’s actions.

Naturally, it is wise to eat foods high in vitamins and minerals, and dentists recommend the following as good choices: turkey, tuna, salmon, liver, whole grains, wheat germ, leafy vegetables, eggs, bananas, lentils, peppers, brown rice, beans, tofu, and low fat dairy produce. An adequate supply of many different vitamins is necessary for good health and energy levels, so you should eat a varied diet to maximise your intake, and maybe take a supplement if necessary. You can find dental advertising at any office that has this information and more.
