Hello, it is so nice to have you around again, Tuesdays and Thursdays are now my favourite days of the week because I know you guys will be reading this post when they are posted.
Without further ado let get into it, today we are looking at Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin), they also water-Soluble Vitamins.
It is a vitamin that benefits the central nervous system and metabolism. Its roles include turning food into energy and helping to create neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and dopamine.

Benefits of B6
Vitamin B6 helps to create neurotransmitters, which are important chemical messengers in the brain. It also helps regulate energy use in the brain.
Taking pyridoxine may help with mild symptoms of nausea and vomiting during pregnancy, compared with a placebo.
It also reports that taking a combination of pyridoxine and doxylamine could help with moderate symptoms.
Likewise, It helps to protect people against the harmful effects of air pollution by reducing the impact of pollution on the epigenome.
Vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin)
Just like the other B vitamins, it is important for metabolism. It also helps form red blood cells and maintain the central nervous system.
Vitamin B12 can be found in foods such as meat, fish, and dairy products. Although It can also be made in a laboratory. It is often taken in combination with other B vitamins.
Vitamin B12 is found only in animal products and certain foods fortified with the vitamin, therefore, vegans and strict vegetarians are at risk of deficiency. Also, good sources include meat, liver, kidney, poultry, fish, eggs, dairy products and fortified breakfast cereals.
This is interesting; however, we will stop here today here and continue next time, but always remember that we at secure health are just a click away
