The B vitamins have multiple functions and effects and are essential for proper functioning of the brain and nervous system. Deficiencies of any of the B vitamins can result in a variety of debilitating diseases. All in all, researchers seem to agree that a healthy diet high in the B vitamins and folate is at least protective against cognitive decline.Health Professionals recommend Folic Acid, B6 and B12 for Heart Health and
Cognitive Enhancement


Constituents of Sea Buckthorn

Niacin (PP vitamin B3)

Niacin functions as part of two important coenzymes that together help over 200
enzymes that depend on the vitamin to carry out chemical reactions. These coenzymes are contained in every cell of the body and are present whenever energy is released from chemical reactions. In addition, niacin is important in helping to make new compounds, especially those containing fat.
Contents of niacin ranges from 12 mg/100g of leaves to 130 mg/100 g of dried berries.

Folic acid (Vitamin B9)

Folic Acid works in combination with vitamins B6 and B12 as well as the nutrient S-Adenosylmethionine to reduce levels of the amino acid homocysteine. Elevated levels of homocysteine have been linked to emotional stress responses such as depression. Sea buckthorn leaves are extremely rich source of Folic acid (Folate)~1000-2000 (micro g/100g). if you have plants on your property, try the tender baby leaves in salads.

Vitamin B1

Thiamine (Vitamin B1) - is one of the co-enzymes that help keep our energy levels high. The body's need for B1 is based on two factors, one being the caloric intake of your diet and the second being the amount of energy being expended. Vitamin B1 is essential for carbohydrate metabolism, blood formation and it also supports circulation. Vitamin B1 is needed for normal muscle tone of the intestines, stomach and the heart.

Vitamin B2

Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) is required by the body to use oxygen and the metabolism of amino acids, fatty acids, and carbohydrates. Riboflavin is further needed to activate vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), helps to create niacin and assists the adrenal gland. It may be used for red blood cell formation, antibody production, cell respiration, and growth.

Some new research suggests that using vitamin B2 with iron supplements can relieve anaemia. It’s also been shown to help some candidiasis sufferers, as well as relieving the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome and cramps during pregnancy.

Some researchers believe that migraine headaches are caused by a reduction of energy production by cells in the head. Since riboflavin plays a part in the process of energy metabolism, adequate intakes of the vitamin may actually help to prevent migraines.

Vitamin B6

Pyridoxine (B6) is an important nutrient that supports more vital bodily functions than any other vitamin. Vitamin B6 functions in the formation of body proteins and amino acid metabolism, chemical transmitters in the nervous system, red blood cells, and prostaglandins. Because this B vitamin is involved with the multiplication of cells, it plays a vital role in pregnancy and in proper function of the immune system, mucous membrane, skin, red blood cells, and brain chemistry.

Vitamin B6 supplements have been associated with the treatment of several diseases. Autism has been linked to a decrease in certain brain neurotransmitters that require vitamin B6 for normal brain chemistry. Research supports vitamin B6 supplementation in the treatment of autistic children, especially when used with magnesium.


Vitamin B12

Dr. Pandalis Research (EU Patent: No. 079 92 37) was the first to discover that sea  buckthorn skins of certain biotopes contain a lot of vitamin B12: and, by means of the symbiosis of sea buckthorn with special bacteria, a vitamin B12 concentration occurs in the seed skin of sea buckthorn, which was previously only known in liver. Very recent analyses of the freshly harvested raw material have again confirmed the high content of up to 60 µg vitamin B12 per 100 g sample.

Recommended Daily Allowance: Men - 220 µg, women - 400 µg. However, according to several recently published studies, much higher quantities - up to 20 grams per day - may be consumed without danger, and many researchers now believe that the lower RDA could leave the body vulnerable to low blood cell production, reduction in protein metabolism, and a higher risk of birth defects.

Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid)

Vitamin B5,pantothenic acid (The Energy Vitamin) is the vitamin that helps produce antibodies and red blood cells. It also makes brain neurotransmitters and natural body steroid hormones.Deficiency of pantothenic acid in rats causes highly notable failure of cartilage growth and lesions like the lesions in osteoarthrosis. It bolsters your energy level by helping you digest protein, carbohydrates and fats.
