Facts about B-Vitamins and Neurological Health  

Author: Christine Rauch-Nell (B.Pharm)

B-Vitamins such as Vitamin B1 (Thiamine), Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine), Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin), and Folate as well as Vitamin D are essential in Central Nerve Cell Metabolism and help to maintain structural and functional properties of the Nervous System. These vitamins all contribute to our Neurological health. 

Vitamins B1, B6 and B12 and Folate each play many different roles including supporting your metabolism and helping to produce essential neurotransmitters and red blood cells. 

Vitamin B1 helps your body convert food into energy, while your brain needs it to metabolise glucose and it is necessary for proper nerve functioning.  

Vitamin B6 activates enzymes that are in charge of producing energy, neurotransmitters, as well as red and white blood cells that support your immune system.  

Vitamin B12 helps make neurotransmitters, Haemoglobin and DNA, while also keeping nerve cells and red blood cells healthy.  

Vitamin D3 is essential to maintain important functions of the body such as Calcium homeostasis, maintenance of skeleton integrity, and neurodevelopment. Its deficiency has been linked to many problems such as Dementia, Depression, Diabetes Mellitus, Autism, and Schizophrenia.
