Stress, aging, active lifestyles, poor digestion, alcohol consumption,
PMS, menopause, and cardiovascular disease are just some of the
factors that increase the body’s need for B vitamins. Inadequate
intake of some B vitamins is not uncommon and deficiencies can
be associated with fatigue, insomnia, depression, and migraines.
In the diet, B vitamins are found in yeast, green leafy vegetables,
and lentils. The best sources of B12 are meat and seafood, making
supplements particularly advisable for vegetarians.
When the effects of physical or mental stress start to take a toll on
our health, the additional support of an herbal adaptogen, such as
rhodiola, that gently normalizes the nervous system, can quickly
bring noticeable relief.
