One of the best ways to be ready for the world’s metaphorical curve balls is to always strive to be your best self through regular exercise, a healthy diet, enough sleep and regular downtime to unplug and rejuvenate.
For many of us, that is a perennial challenge—no matter what is going on in the world. Sometimes you need a little something extra to get out of bed in the morning, to get through your workout or even just to get through your day.
Dietary supplements containing B vitamins might be able to help.
What is vitamin B?
You’re likely familiar with the term vitamin B, but there are actually eight different B vitamins. Together they make up the vitamin B complex:
- B1, or thiamine
- B2, or riboflavin
- B3, or niacin
- B5, or pantothenic acid
- B7, or biotin
- B9, or folate/folic acid
- B12, or cyanocobalamin
The B vitamins are among the 13 essential vitamins, which means your body needs them to function properly. They are found in a variety of foods, including avocado, broccoli, bananas, oranges, lentils, legumes, beans, peas, eggs, dairy, meats and whole grains.
You can also find them in supplements to help fill any gaps that may be in your diet or provide targeted support for energy, fatigue or focus. Let’s take a closer look at how vitamin B can help you be your best self.
Whether you’re working out in the world or running the show from your home office, you’re likely working longer and harder than ever before. As such, you might find you run out of steam right when you need it.
Try fighting fatigue before it starts by taking a vitamin B supplement to start your day. B vitamins help your body unlock energy from the foods you eat to proactively block fatigue before it sets in.
Look for one with extended release features. Your body can only absorb so much vitamin B at one time; the excess is flushed out of your system.
Nutrilite™ Vitamin B Dual–Action, for example, includes a technology that slowly releases nutrients into your system so you get a steady stream throughout the day. The dark green side of the Nutrilite tablet quickly releases B2 and B12 for immediate absorption, while the light green side slowly and steadily releases the remaining six B vitamins over the course of eight hours.
Power your workout
Regular exercise is key to optimal health, but let’s face it: Starting that workout each day is doubly difficult if your energy level is zero. You can barely motivate yourself to get out of your chair let alone go for a run or complete some other fitness routine.
Consider something designed to get you moving, such as XS™ Intense Pre-Workout Boost. Not only does it have a blend of beta alanine and rhodiola rosea for increased energy and focus, it also has a mega dose of B vitamins to give you an intense boost of energy support and the caffeine equivalent of a cup coffee, just enough to open your eyes.†
The combination delivers extra energy to help you power through your workout and perform better by fighting fatigue and boosting your endurance.†
Find your focus
If you’re in the middle of a big project and find your mind more interested in the squirrel out the window or one of the many tempting tabs open in your browser, it might be time to help yourself find some renewed focus.
Some quick stretches or a few minutes of cardio can definitely help. You can also try n* by Nutrilite™ Slay the Day – Focus Gummies or n* by Nutrilite™ Slay the Day – Focus Shot. The shot contains B vitamins that work together with ginseng and a special Focus Blend that includes the South American herb Yerba Mate to give you a 3-ounce hit of instant focus support to help keep you on task.†
Give it a try the next time your mind starts to wander.
Work hard, play hard
Are you the work hard, play hard type? Sometimes you need a little help to bounce back from playing so hard before you get to work. Or maybe you were just burning the midnight oil on work and have to do it all again the next day.
Those mornings call for a little extra help. Consider the n* by Nutrilite™ Hit Reset Vitamin B & Milk Thistle Shot for a quick boost of energy support.† Or you can be proactive and take it before a late night.
Either way, the combination of milk thistle, a flowering herb traditionally used for liver support, and vitamins B12, B6 and B1 deliver what your body needs.
Give your productivity a boost
Those high-calorie caffeinated beverages that call your name around mid afternoon seem to hit the spot. But are they really what you need? All those sweet syrups can put you at risk of a major sugar crash, which does nothing to boost your productivity.
Change up your afternoon ritual by swapping a vitamin b energy drink for your regular coffee or tea option. XS™ Energy Drink delivers a dose of caffeine for an energy boost along with herbs and plenty of B vitamins. But it doesn’t have the high sugar content associated with other caffeinated alternatives. It’s sugar-free and has only 10 calories.
