Feeling Downright Sluggish? These B Vitamins May Help*
Do you feel like you're sleeping enough but are somehow always drained during the day? If you are getting around seven to nine hours of shut-eye nightly without tossing and turning or getting up regularly, your daytime tiredness may be due to something else.
And it's possibly a result of a sluggish methylation cycle and a lack of B vitamins.
The connection between methylation, B vitamins, and energy
B vitamins (especially folate and vitamin B12) are needed in their fully activated forms to keep methylation processes running without a hitch. If you don't get enough B vitamins, or if you have the MTHFR genetic variant that makes it difficult for your body to activate the B vitamins you get through food, it throws a wrench into the machine.
So what can you do to make sure you're getting enough B vitamins in their most biologically active forms? Taking a targeted supplement is one option.
Meet methylation support+
And if you haven't supplemented with bioactive forms of B vitamins before, you're going to feel a night-and-day difference when you start.*
Don't just take our word for it, though—here's what customers are saying.
I can feel the difference
"I definitely feel more energy since switching away from regular B vitamins to these methylated forms. I don't know if I have the genetic expressions (I think it's related to MTHFR?) that would make me a bad methylator, but going forward I am sticking to this formula and avoiding cheap Bs because I can feel the difference."*
"I really appreciate this mindbodygreen product. It works well for me and I've also noticed a boost in my energy."*
Added to my daily supplement routine
"I have added this and feel great. The supplements from mindbodygreen are a daily thing to help keep me healthy, especially as we move toward fall and winter. Maintaining health is a primary necessity in my life as I age."*
"I find this product so helpful. I had been taking a supplement from another brand, but I swapped for this one because it's more comprehensive and high-quality!"*
Covers the bases
"My doctor has suggested I take a targeted B complex with methylated folate. This product covers the bases and is just what I've been looking for. Thanks mbg!"*
If you have suboptimal energy levels or are feeling a tad lethargic throughout the day without any apparent cause, it's time to consider that your methylation processes may be off. One of the most efficient and surefire ways to rev up this cycle is through smart supplementation with activated B vitamins, like those found in methylation support+.
