B vitamins are water-soluble vitamins that play an essential role for brain health and the function of the nervous system20. They also help to convert food into energy21, helping to supply valuable glucose to feed the brain.
Feel Focus includes Vitamin B1, Vitamin B3 (Niacin), Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid), Vitamin B6, Vitamin B7 (Biotin) and Vitamin B12 to provide an array of benefits to support energy production22, psychological function7 and mental performance4. These particular B vitamins are also involved in boosting the production of neurotransmitters that are responsible for regulating mood and preventing mental fatigue.
Deficiencies or a low nutrient status of B vitamins, in particular B12, B6 and Folic acid have been linked to elevated homocysteine levels in the blood. This has led researchers to associate high homocysteine levels with cognitive impairment and dementia in later life23, while deficiency in vitamin B12 has been linked to increased rates of depression and impaired mood24.
For this reason, Feel Focus contains high levels of these important B vitamins, in their most bioavailable nutrient forms to ensure the body is obtaining optimum stores of B vitamins to keep the brain healthy and prevent possible neurodegenerative diseases associated with ageing.
