Symptoms of B Vitamin Deficiency
Vitamin B1: deficiency is linked to blood sugar imbalances and neuropathy.
Vitamin B2: deficiency symptoms include sores around the mouth and/or swollen tongue.
Vitamin B6: Insufficient amounts of vitamin B6 can result in anemia, skin disorders, depression, confusion, high blood pressure, a susceptibility to infections, high homocysteine, water retention, kidney stones and insomnia. Rash or cracks around the mouth are common deficiency symptoms.
Vitamin B9 or folate: Without enough folate diarrhea or anemia can develop. Pregnant women who are deficient in folate can give birth to babies with neural tube defects. Tingling in hands and feet are common symptoms.
Vitamin B12 deficiencies can lead to anemia and confusion in elderly people. Psychological problems such as dementia, paranoia, depression, and behavioral problems can result from a vitamin B12 deficiency.
Active Co-enzyme Forms of B Vitamins: Most B-complex formulas may have little effect on health because the body has to convert the B-vitamins into their active coenzyme forms in order to utilize them. You have heard the doctor say you are making expensive urine when you take B vitamins. This statement rings true for many people as they are not able to convert common B vitamins into their active coenzyme forms and as such do not absorb the vitamins.
