What’s in it for my brain?
B vitamins are needed to generate energy in our cells. So, they’re like the fuel that gives our brain cells the energy they need to do their work.
B vitamins contribute to the structure and function of brain cells through the making of cholesterol, amino acids, phospholipids, and fatty acids. They also contribute to the synthesis and metabolism of steroid hormones, and vitamin D.
B vitamins are antioxidants, and are essential for normal brain and nervous system function, cell signalling and DNA repair and could play an important role in mental health.
B6 helps to make neurotransmitters serotonin, dopamine and gamma-aminobutyric acid, which all regulate our emotions.
Low levels of B Vitamins can double your chances of developing a mood disorder such as depression as they affect production of serotonin and dopamine - chemicals in the brain that regulate mood.
