Executive B is a comprehensive B complex formula with added Vitamin C and minerals, all of which are needed for good health. Executive B helps minimize the damaging effects of continuous stress. It is especially helpful for those who are highly stressed, whether at work or at school, or in situations where dietary intake of nutrients is inadequate.
Like Vitamin B, Vitamin C is a stress vitamin and is used up rapidly when the body is under stress. It is added to this formula to replace stress-related loss of Vitamin C and to slow down the depletion of Vitamin B during stressful periods. Vitamin C also helps to keep capillary blood vessels toned, which in turn improve circulation so that nutrients in the blood can reach the brain and nerve cells and restore depleted energy.
Zinc is added to this formula to help fight stress, fatigue and mental dullness. Zinc also supports the immune system.
Another important function of zinc is to help in the absorption of B vitamins. It assists many of the enzymes involved in the digestion of food and assimilation of nutrients, thus conserving B complex vitamins which may be used for that purpose.
It is believed that many people who live in industrialized societies lack one or more B vitamins. Meeting the demands of a busy and stressful lifestyle, consuming an excess of refined and processed foods and taking too much alcohol can all lead to a depleted store of these nutrients.
The B complex vitamins are an essential part of the diet as they assist in the conversion of food to energy within the body. They also maintain the health of the nerves, skin, eyes, hair and liver, as well as encourage good muscle tone of the gastrointestinal tract.
The B vitamins also help with mental awareness, alertness and brain stamina.
The Body Defenders
The functions of the individual B vitamins are related to one other; therefore, they should all be taken together. A deficiency of one can cause a shortage of others, which leads to a break in the link of a complex chain.
Individually, the B vitamins battle to maintain good health, but when combined into a complex, they create a complete army of defenders. Patients tested for frequent bacterial and viral infections show deficiencies in one or more of the B vitamins.
