Vitamin B: Oats B - Properties

Oat bran, enriched with vitamin complex B (vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, B12, B15). Vitamin B Complex

The group of B vitamins was individualized by Casimir Funk in 1912, from rice and yeast, and initially was considered a single vitamin, and was subsequently divided into subgroups gradually increasing numbers.

The B vitamins are involved as coenzymes in many enzyme systems. In nature, all are found in greater or lesser extent, in the cuticle of cereals and brewer's yeast.

Vitamin B1, or thiamine aneurine also is the most important of the B vitamins It was in 1912 when the isolated Funk when, to define the group of substances to which he belonged, was coined the term vitamin, ie amine necessary for life.

The body contains about 25mg. It is stored in all tissues, but is more concentrated in the liver, brain, kidneys and heart. In the blood, almost all found in red blood cells, and up to ten times more in white blood cells (3 to 12 mg.), Very little in the plasma.

Baptized anti or anti neuritic beriberi, vitamin B1 plays an important role in the functioning of the nervous system and muscle essential, particularly in brain metabolism.

This vitamin serves as an example to understand the vital role played by the rest of the vitamins of the group "B". (See BODY FUNCTIONS).

Enzymes are substances that trigger the metabolic reactions that occur constantly in all our cells.

Metabolism is the transformation of living matter, which is built (anabolism) or destroyed (catabolism), eliminating waste or toxic waste.

Enzymes are made from proteins. An apoenzyme protein or an enzyme becomes complete when a coenzyme (vitamin or mineral) is associated with it. Currently it has identified about seven hundred enzymes in the body, classified into six chemical classes. Hence the importance of nutritional supplementation with vitamin B complex when there are degenerative disorders, neurological problems of assimilation, malnutrition, impaired development, anemic and poly vitamin deficiencies in general, because the B vitamins are coenzymes very effective they attach to the apoenzymes protein, produced powerful biological enzymes for regeneration, regulation and revitalizing the body.

For example:
Folic Acid (vit.B9) is essential to maintain low homocysteine levels (if these are high are injured arterial walls, and ends with cardiovascular disease, arthritis and nerve diseases). Folic acid should take the children and women who wish to become pregnant to prevent neural tube defects.

The doses of folic acid should be between 400 to 800 mg / d. In addition other forms of homocysteine would reduce vitamin B12 (0.5 to 1 mg / day) and vitamin B6 (50 to 100 mg / day).

Body functions:
- Neurotropic (acting mainly at the nervous system): B1 (regenerating), B3 (balance nerve), B9 (folic acid neural tube formation).
- Anabolic (participating in the construction of tissue): B2, B5 and B6.
- Anti anemic (which allow the production of blood cells): B9 (folic acid) and B12 (cyanocobalamin).

Poly forms of vitamin B deficiencies are relatively common, given the weakness of the contributions, the increase in refined foods, and subjects at risk (heavy drinkers, for example). It is very important that the prepared poly vitamin B complex, be prepared with bran powder, rich in these vitamins to enhance their absorption capacity.
