images9City-dwellers should stock up on B vitamins, experts claim. A new study suggests that the supplements may play a critical role in reducing the devastating impact of air pollution. In a trial on humans, scientists found just small doses could offset the deadly damage caused by tiny, toxic particles. Experts believe the findings could have a significant public health benefit in heavily polluted cities across the world.1

Vitamin B is in fact a complex of 11 related nutrients that work as a team and are critical for all things mind-related: mood, memory, and migraines can benefit from the B’s.  if your stress level is high, or if your diet is low in B’s ( B-rich foods are dark-green vegetables, protein from animal sources, whole grains, yeast, and brown rice) you’ll benefit from the higher amounts found in supplements.  Always choose a food-based Vitamin B that offers the full family of the B’s.  And be sure to consult a physician if you’re interested in taking B’s for medicinal use. To learn more about Vitamin B-complex, I invite you to read one of a previous blog post entitled “Migraine, Acetaminophen, Vitamin B“.2
