NIACIN (B3), PANTOTHENIC ACID (B5), B6 AND B12
The B vitamins are essential for the human body. Niacin (vitamin B3) provides effective treatment for anxiety, while pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) plays an important role in the production of acetylcholine: a neurotransmitter that is responsible for exchanging nerve impulses between the brain and the organs. Vitamin B6 is needed to synthesize serotonin (the hormone of happiness) and reduce the feeling of chronic tiredness. Vitamin B12 is responsible for keeping the nervous system healthy. It helps to form the sheaths that protect nerves.
