If the B-complex had a superhero name, it would be SUPER-B! because it’s just that- super! The B vitamin complex is composed of six B vitamins: B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6 (pyridoxine), B7 (biotin), B9 (folic acid), and B12 (various cobalamins). This is already one super trait of the complex because you’re getting a 6-for-1 deal which we all know is hard to come by these days. A second super trait is all of the AMAZING things the B-complex does for you like keep your hair and nails long and healthy, help your problem skin become not-so-problematic, increase your metabolism to help you get your skinny on, give you loads of energy by promoting the growth and division of your red blood cells,  and preventing cancer. The B-complex is the body guard to your super model.
    We’re going to spend the majority of our time on Biotin because, well, if it wasn’t for Biotin, the B-complex would be just “meh” and you would be S.O.L. Biotin is the Kobe Bryant of your metabolism; it can process carbs, proteins, and fats, which are the major amino acids your body needs. Since Biotin can break down almost everything you eat in a timely manner, it is essential to use as a part of your summer-bod regime.
Stable metabolic control can also benefit blood sugar control in diabetics. A study conducted in 2008 by the Diabetes/Metabolism Research and Reviews found that taking a biotin supplement (with a combination of other amino acids) along with diabetes medication helped type 2 diabetics (including 43 patients who had poorly managed diabetes) significantly improve and control their blood sugar levels.
    Biotin also puts the “b” in beautiful, healthy hair and nails. Biotin stimulates all the good stuff that helps new hair and nail growth possible, so it is usually recommended if you either of these are rebelling against you. Biotin can even benefit you even if your hair and nails obey on a regular basis, they will probably even love you for it. Because your skin has the same basic make-up as hair and nails, it can benefit that as well. Your acne will run for its life and leave behind a glowing, soft trail that is your skin.
    Now that I’m done obsessing over Biotin, it’s time to give the other vitamins a moment in the spotlight. Thiamine aides biotin in speeding up metabolic processes, as well as keeping the brain and the rest of your nervous system electric and ready. Riboflavin is the Robin to the Biotin Batman by helping to break down carbohydrates, proteins, and fats that make their way through your digestive tract. It also gives Jell-O, Fanta, and all other things red and orange their nice color.
    You know how your doctor always nags to you to raise your HDL and lower your LDL? Well luckily you have niacin in your B-complex because that’s its job! Fancy that. Pantothenic acid keeps your cells breathing by transporting carbon and oxygen molecules throughout your body. Your little cells can’t handle all the gross stuff you inhale on a regular basis, so someone has to clean up the mess that is pollution and smoking.
    B6 and B12 are the money makers of the vitamin complex. The key roles of these guys are to give you the energy you need to be you on a regular basis. Nothing is worse than a super gnarly Lamborghini on empty- that doesn’t even sound cool. Folic acid is your really awesome and super smokin’ Lamborghini mechanic (think Megan Fox in Transformers). Folic acid repairs and synthesizes DNA and is very important to rapid cell division and growth. B9 is also a necessity if you have a bun in the oven, as it prevents CNS disorders in your little one.  Finally, folic acid is needed to produce healthy RBCs and prevent common forms of anemia.
    So there you have it, that’s why the B-complex is in all of our WheatGrass Love products- because it makes you super beaming, beautiful, and bitchin.  *Note: Sorry, it will not make you a super hero, nor will it give you any super powers. It will, however, make you into your own super-self.
