Stressed? Reach for Some B Vitamins

Stress from work accounts for a large percentage of health care claims in the US. A new study conducted by researchers at the Swinburne University of Technology in Australia suggests that a B vitamin supplement may reduce the impact of work stress.

The study was published in Human Psychoparmacology on September 8, 2011.

Subjects in the study included 60 adults, half of whom consumed a high potency vitamin B supplement daily over the course of 3 months and half of whom consumed a placebo.

At the conclusion of the study, the researchers administered assessments which concluded that vitamin B supplementation was associated with reduced personal strain, confusion, and depressed and dejected mood.

B vitamins have been linked to numerous health benefits, including reducing breast cancer risk, nervous system function, red blood cell formation, and hormone function. Studies have also suggested that B vitamins may reduce the risk of stroke, hearing loss, and birth defects.

Our bodies do not naturally synthesize B vitamins. However, it is easy to increase your intake of these essential vitamins by eating more vitamin B rich foods. Some foods rich in B vitamins include broccoli, asparagus, potatoes, tuna and salmon. Many flour products are also fortified with B vitamins.
