Lamberts Vitamin B


Lamberts Vitamin B

Most processes in the body need B vitamins for the release of energy from food, for a healthy nervous system and to keep our digestive system working smoothly and also needed for healthy skin, hair and nails. Lamberts supplies all the single B vitamins, from vitamin B1 through to vitamin B12, and they are all yeast free. Vitamin B1 is Thiamin and Riboflavin supplies vitamin B2 for example but you can see more by looking in more details at the products below.

Lamberts also supply Vitamin B Complex supplements, providing a range of the vitamin B supplements you need because  a deficient intake of one of more of them may cause deficiencies in the others by hindering their utilisation.

Therefore, most practitioners prefer to give a B Complex (maybe together with some of the single B vitamins) when supplementation has to be long-term. This is why we have a separate section for these.

Whatever lamberts Vitamin B supplement you choose, you can be assured that you are using one of the very best, most effective Vitamin B supplement because Lamberts have scientifically designed products and always specify, more accurately than most, the precise active ingredients in their labelling.

There is more information about Vitamin B below the product listing.

Pantothenic acid is found in most meats and vegetables, including:

  • chicken
  • beef
  • potatoes
  • porridge
  • tomatoes
  • kidney
  • eggs
  • broccoli

Vitamin B6

Biotin (vitamin B7)

Biotin is needed in very small amounts to help the body break down fat. The bacteria that live naturally in your bowel are able to make biotin, so it's not clear if you need any additional biotin from the diet.

Biotin is also found in a wide range of foods, but only at very low levels.

Folate and folic acid

Folate is a B vitamin found in many foods. The manmade form of folate is called folic acid. Folate is also known as folacin and vitamin B9.

Folate helps the body form healthy red blood cells and reduce the risk of central neural tube defects, such as spina bifida, in unborn babies. A lack of folate could lead to folate deficiency anaemia.

  • brussels sprouts
  • liver (but avoid this during pregnancy)
  • leafy green vegetables such as cabbage and spinach
  • peas
  • chickpeas
  • breakfast cereals fortified with folic acid

How much folate do I need?

Adults need 200 micrograms of folate a day. A microgram is 1,000 times smaller than a milligram (mg). The word microgram is sometimes written with the Greek symbol μ followed by the letter g (μg).

There are no long-term stores in the body, so you need to eat folate-containing foods frequently.

If you're pregnant or trying for a baby, it's recommended that you take a 400 microgram folic acid supplement daily from the time you stop using contraception until you're 12 weeks pregnant.

This is to help prevent birth defects, such as spina bifida, in your baby.

Make sure you speak to your doctor if you have a family history of conditions like spina bifida (known as neural tube defects) as you may need to take a higher dose of 5mg of folic acid each day until you're 12 weeks pregnant.

Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 is involved in making red blood cells and keeping the nervous system healthy, releasing energy from food using folic acid

A lack of vitamin B12 could lead to vitamin B12 deficiency anaemia.

Good sources of vitamin B12

  • meat
  • salmon
  • cod
  • milk
  • cheese
  • eggs
  • some fortified breakfast cereals

How much vitamin B12 do I need?

Adults (aged 19 to 64) need about 1.5 microgram a day of vitamin B12.

Vitamin B12 isn't found naturally in foods such as fruit, vegetables and grains, vegans may not get enough of it.
