DC Formula 34 is a potent B-complex formula that contains all of the very important B Vitamins.
The name 'vitamin B' actually refers to a collection of B vitamins, which are known together as the vitamin B complex. Before the days of being able to study in detail the chemical structures involved in the many metabolic processes within our bodies, it was thought that vitamin B was a 'vital amine' that came from foods such as rice and bread yeast. We know differently now of course, as the repertoire of essential substances required by the body continues to expand. Hence, the B vitamins are in fact varied in their function and structure, unified only by their name which distinguishes them from vitamin C. Vitamin C and the B vitamins are the only water soluble vitamins, the others (A, D, E and K) are soluble in fat.
Although vitamin B was discovered to be in fact many different vitamin Bs, each is of critical value to the body. They each have alternative names that are related to their structure.
The array of B vitamins may be baffling, and looking at what products are on offer may be even more so. It is often difficult to know whether you are getting enough of certain vitamins in your diet. B vitamins are present in many different types of food and eating a varied diet rich in fruit, vegetable, whole grains and pulses, as well as a little meat, should be all your body requires. However, we do not always keep to good eating habits and at different times of the year the body's demands are different. Unless you have a serious deficiency it is pretty difficult to home in on which vitamins your body is lacking, but that does not mean that deficiency is uncommon.
Many people with low income, that may not have good access to fresh whole foods, in addition to those people with consistently poor eating habits, can be prey to such deficiencies.
Mild B vitamin deficiency can cause symptoms of anemia, tiredness, depression, muscle cramps, hair loss and poor development in children. Unfortunately signs are often not recognized, especially when a person does not outwardly appear to be poorly nourished. Taking a vitamin B complex supplement can bolster levels of those B vitamins that you might be lacking, and there is no harm from taking in excess of what you need of others.
We now know that folic acid is essential for proper development of the neural tube (which is the fetus during the first stages of pregnancy). However more recently, it has also been linked with reduced risk of contracting certain forms of cancer. While not being effective in treating cancer, this finding is still excellent news for those with a family history of cancer that might be at particularly high risk.
